We took a family weekend to go to Costa Rica for a wedding nearby, and we ended up having the most amazing time! This house was exactly as beautiful as the pictures in a lovely neighborhood!! Shelly was extremely helpful and very responsive to any of our questions. We will absolutely be returning and next time for much longer! All I can say is, AMAZING!

Awesome view! Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

After driving in at 11pm with white knuckles from the crazy steep drive, we instantly relaxed in awe at the beautiful house. The bathrooms, pool, bedrooms, and the view were all incredible. We also found a great restaurant 1 block south of the square (it has broken tile embedded in the floor of the entrance). We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: We have so many relaxing little restaurants in Atenas with good comfort food and great Costa Rican coffee. I hope you will come back soon to spend more time in our beautiful little town. I really appreciated how well you took care of the house.

More than pictures shows

The home is gorgeous and it contains everything that you need to feel yourself as home. The views leave you speechless.

It's a very nice place to rest and have some peace from the daily routine.

Besides that the owners are willing to satisfy your needs and desires as much as possible.

Thank you Shelly for your great customer service we are looking forward to repeat this experience soon.

Beyond expecations

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far one of the best vacation homes I have stayed at. The pictures made the home look amazing but when seeing it in person it was even better than we imagined. There were 5 of us in total staying there and there was still so much room for more people. The amount of space in the house was enormous. The house had everything you would need in a home and more. We looked more forward to being in the home than out in the city sometimes! It is a little distant from the adventurous areas but if you have a vehicle like we did then that won't be a problem at all. We had complete privacy and enjoyed the home every bit. Look forward to coming back here for our next trip to Costa Rica. Many places to eat near by as well as grocery shop. A rental vehicle is definitely a must. Shelly was great with having instructions on how to use certain equipment. Overall an amazing experience.

Our group of 6 from the US thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay at 206 Rocha Verde! The house is spacious and well designed for a gathering. Added amenities such as the washer/dryer and the wireless printer made our traveling so easy. Shelly was so kind and helpful, answering all our questions! Thanks so much Shelly - truly Pura Vida!!!
