About MIGUEL F. GARCIA
The house’s owners, the Garcia family, originally hails from the beautiful island country of Puerto Rico. As is the custom with all islanders, they take their vacations together as an extended family. And together they have traveled all over the world searching for the perfect out-of-the-way place for the family to retire. When they arrived at the house in Atenas they knew they had found what would become the refuge from their hectic lives. While waiting for the right time to retire, the Garcias felt it would be a shame if other people did not get to enjoy their find, which lead to their decision to turn the property into a rental. They are now thrilled to share it with you; so that you too may be a able to step into Casa La Frontera del Cielo, and experience what it feels like to be at heaven’s doorstep…
MIGUEL F. GARCIA purchased this Villa in 2012
Why MIGUEL F. GARCIA chose Jesús
Casa La Frontera del Cielo is not just a house that offers its occupants stunning views, a beautiful garden, and exceptional opportunities for observing the local Costa Rican flora and fauna. It is a five minute drive to the unique mountain town of Atenas, but also, given its central location in the country, it is close to most of the main attractions in Costa Rica: including its volcanoes, butterfly gardens, rain-forests equipped with canopy tours and zip lines waiting for you to explore them and, yes, it’s within driving distance of the famous Pacific coast beaches. Multiple tours in the area allow for boating, white water rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and so much more. For those seeking culture, Escazú (a sophisticated bilingual area of fabulous restaurants, stores, exclusive boutiques, English language bookstores and movies) is a 45-minute drive away. Costa Rica's main airport and capital city of San José are also within an even shorter driving distance from our property.
What makes this Villa unique
Our house management team, and the services they provide to our renters, are unequaled in all of the country. As an additional service to our guests, we offer a fee-based airport pick up and drop-off to help you avoid the potential hassles involved in the transitions into and out of your time in Costa Rica. We also provide car rentals and tours to all corners of the country. The house tours are frequently custom made to our guests' requests. Our house management team receives uniformly rave reviews over their thoughtfulness and attention to our renters' needs and their level of personal care when conducting our guided tours.

Peaceful, beautiful visit with a view
What a vacation it was - and this house helped it to be just that. It was quiet, relaxing, and the view couldn’t be beat. Watching the clouds rolling in and going was amazing to watch. Bunki tours was MORE than accommodating for us before and during our trip, making sure that they booked everything we wanted to do with advice that was golden to have while navigating Costa Rica. Their recommendations are there for a reason - use them!! We had so many unforgettable experiences and food because of Aad and Marian. This property and accommodation is a steal and truly a rare find. I would come back to visit anytime.
This was our families second time to stay at Casa La Frontera and it did not disappoint. We absolutely love the house and location. The view is breathtaking and we are constantly amazed at how it can change throughout the day. The pictures posted truly do not do justice to the home. We absolutely love the outdoor area and spend most of our time outside around the pool and outdoor kitchen area.
The house is very nice and services and tours offered by Aad as property manager allows you the opportunity to experience all that Costa Rica has to offer. For this trip we were celebrating a birthday and we had asked to have a birthday cake waiting for us upon arrival to the house. Aad was able to take care of this for us and we were able to surprise my daughter. I am very appreciative of this additional service from Aad in helping to make our stay special and memorable.
We absolutely love this home and you truly feel as if you are knocking on heavens door.
We loved the house and its location. the view was great! enjoyed having our own car, I would recommend renting your own car. eat at the sodas they are the best.
The setting and views from this property are stunning! We really enjoyed the home. It had everything we needed for seven people. The town of Atenas is away from tourist areas and enjoyable to be a part of the locals. We had several tours through Bunki Tours (ATV, zip-lining and catamaran). We would give each of those 5-stars too! Only downfall would be the 1-2 hour drives to these activities. Driving is an adventure on the curvy, steep hills especially when it’s raining or foggy. If you’re looking for a location to relax, watch the variety of birds and enjoy the views of the mountains, this is it!
Thank you so much for your most wonderful review! We like to highlight Aad and Marian's outstanding job in our property's description, but it is definitely much nicer when it is our own guests who "sing their praises" in their reviews of Casa La Frontera Del Cielo! 😉Aad and Marian keep working to come up with new and exciting tours to satisfy all the individual tastes of our guests; from leisurely coffee plantation strolls, to exciting visits to the surrounding rainforest to see the local flora and fauna, to more adrenaline charged tours like white water rafting, zip lining or bungee jumping in the jungle. We are excited to hear that you had a chance to experience their dedication to their craft first hand! We would love to host your whole group again at Casa La Frontera del Cielo! Muchísimos Cariños, La Familia Garcia
Real Costa Rica
The property was beautiful and well maintained. We enjoyed the views and all the amenities. It is a short drive to town and not too far from any of the excursions we wanted to do. Aad and Marian were great!
Gorgeous and peaceful home in the clouds.
My family and I really enjoyed Casa Frontera de Cielo. The home sits on a lovely property and has lovely views all along the property. Atenas is a very peaceful area with beautiful birds and nature all around. The views are absolutely wonderful!!! Our family enjoyed the pool, hot tub, outside grill and other essentials on the property each evening we were home. Everything we may have needed was on the property. We visited the property for 5 nights/6 days and took the Arenal Canopy Bridge/Baldi Hot Springs tour as well as a long Zip line tour. Both Merian and Aad were wonderful hosts on both tours. They were personal and gave great tips and suggestions on things to do in Atenas and also in Costa Rica. Upon arrival Merian met us in town and guided us to the home with a quick tour of the home. She has such a wonderful personality and we really enjoyed walking the Arenal Canopy Trails with her. Both Merian and Aad were quite knowledgeable on Costa Rican traditions and the lifestyle. The trip was wonderful and the home was exactly what we needed to reconnect with nature. I would recommend this home to anyone and to also allow Merian and Aad to bless you with their company on tours. My family and I will definitely book with Bunki Tours when we return to Costa Rica and suggest that anyone looking for beautiful properties and a wonderful experience utilize Bunki tours!!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful and thorough summary of your vacation stay at Casa La Frontera del Cielo! We are particularly thrilled to hear you were able to experience the house’s unique features, it’s spectacular location at the top of a mountain with incomparable panoramas of the Pacific, our swimming pool and jacuzzis "with a view", along with all the other amenities the property has to offer. We are also happy that you availed yourselves of the Veltman's help in booking and conducting your personal tours, and that your experiences were - as they unfailingly are 😉- positive ones! All of Casa La Frontera Del Cielo's staff, including our wonderful managers, Aad and Marian, always strive to make our guests' stay be an unforgettable one. It brings us no end of happiness to hear that our efforts are paying off! We hope you will give us a chance to provide another unforgettable experience for you in the future.

Due to its central location in Costa Rica, Atenas is close to essentially all its main attractions including its volcanoes, beaches, tropical rain forests for nature trekking and zip lining, rivers for boating and white-water rafting, etc. It is located on Route 3, and close to Route 27, the main road and highway to Costa Rica's Pacific Coast beaches and nature preserves.
