CASA LA FRONTERA DEL CIELO (The House Next To Heaven)

This house sits standing watch at the top of a mountain, at an altitude of over 3200 feet, above the town of Atenas overlooking the great western valley that extends all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

Not only can you see the Costa Rican lush (possessing all conceivable shades of green!) rainforest from most of the perimeter of the property, but can also take in the Pacific coast and ocean from your infinity pool. Enjoy your very own private garden teeming with wildlife, vivid tropical flora and fruit trees including avocado, lemon, mango, banana, plantain, guava, coffee and other exotic delicacies. Watch and listen to t...

This is the closest to heaven we've been! The house is literally in the clouds and the pictures of the view don't do it justice. The location in Atenas worked great for us - the town is easily accessible by car with good supermarkets and...More

About the neighbourhood
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 b... more
