But it feels a million miles away - located on a serene, beautiful mountain side with indescribable views. With 3 bedrooms and a brand new pool, this is the perfect place to relax, and launch your adventure. - Incredible views from a beautiful house, garden, swimming pool and water fall - Just 25 minutes from the airport (SJO), 45 minutes from the beaches and 90 minutes from incredible Poas Volcano - Brand new swimming pool with views of the Central Valley of Costa Rica. - Queen-sized beds in every bedroom. All have en-suite bathrooms. - Hi-speed internet, large kitchen, washer/dryer, beautifully furnished - Atenas has been described as 'the best climate in the world' and it's true - it never gets too hot, and never gets too cold. It is a truly incredible place. You can use the entire house consisting of 3 queen-sized bedrooms/3 en-suite bathrooms (two in the main house, and two separate in-law units 'casitas' just steps from the main house), study, lounge, kitchen, dining room, garden in front of house with patio, separate stone table and benches. The Vista Atenas neighborhood is also incredible to walk around, see the different architectural styles and find different, beautiful views from every angle! We have a wonderful local property manager (originally from Switzerland, who speaks perfect England) who is at hand to answer every question and make sure you have the time of your life in Costa Rica. And the owner is always available and very responsive by email or phone. More

This is a nice property that is very livable. I stayed here for 2 weeks in April, a great time of year in Atenas. The solar-heated pool and colorful landscaping were highlights. A remote controlled gate provides security. The property managers, Marian and Aad Veltman,...More
