The house was beautiful and very spacious😊

  • 5 of 5

When our family goes back to Costa Rica, we will definitely rent this house again. Shelly was extremely helpful and the house was so beautiful and comfortable. Kitchen was very well stocked and the towels that were provided were plenty and avoided us having to carry extra weight. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful home!!

Stunning views match this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything I could dream of and more. The views were breathtaking both in the mornings watching the sunrise and at night with views of the twinkling lights below while sitting poolside. Shelly was a gracious host and quickly responded whenever I called with a question or to ask for recommendations on what to do or where to go in Atenas. My family loved their experience in Costa Rica and stay at Roca Verde and are already planning a return visit. You will not be disappointed!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

I went here with my wife, kids and best friend and his future wife. The experience was wonderful. Shelley really takes pride in what she do. She was very helpful and will try to accommodate you any way she can. The house was wonderful, very clean and quiet. The pictures do not do the experience any justice. I do not have anything bad to say about this home and my experience. We would definitely like to return. Thank you so much!

Amazing House in Atenas!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families spent two weeks in Costa Rica and staying at this house in Atenas was at the top of our list. The house is in a gated community and sits at the top of the hill providing amazing views at all times of the day. The pictures do not do this place justice and we were completely satisfied with the quality of the house and amenities provided. Atenas is the best kept secret in Costa Rica!

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.
