“Unbelievable Atenas rental”
Reviewed 30 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The whole experience was awesome. Robert was great during and after booking, check in with Magda was easy, and the place was simply amazing. We just loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the amazing views...day and night. The house was spacious and there are birds, iguanas, and fruit trees aplenty. Atenas was such a special place, and staying here definitely added to the magic!

“Paradise remembered”
Reviewed 27 July 2018 for a stay in September 2017

I had to look at the fabulous pics of our wonderful vacation spot! Absolutely breathtaking views. Waking to the sun in the morning and sitting on the patio watching the lights of San Jose at night. Toucans flying by in the morning. The hostess, Magda was a very knowledgeable and helpful plus. Book this paradise and you will day dream of this enchanting home! 3 complete bedrooms w/baths. Covered patio. Infinity pool. We WILL be back!!!

Thank you, Rachelle for your review. I also love the views from the house and never tire of them: the entire Central Valley lies at your feet with the four volcanoes: Poas and Barva to the north, then San Jose in the east with Irazu behind it, and just to the left and behind Irazu is Turrialba, sometimes smoking a little; and then the Pacific Range on your right. We pride ourselves on providing a lot of useful, current information to our guests well before they arrive, including: a menu of fun, beautiful attractions to visit within driving distance of the house (there are many!); a guide to Atenas area restaurants (Atenas is a surprisingly sophisticated, international little town with a variety of new eateries popping up all the time); guidance to the best, most reasonable, reliable car rentals, driver services and tour guides; and more. We also can recommend a private chef for special occasions. Or Magda, herself a very versatile international cook, can provide a very tasty meal for a birthday, anniversary or other special event. With the house my guests also have access to some attractions at the mini-resort next door: two large swimming pools with water slide and jacuzzi, a warm-water spa that can handle 20 people, a tennis court and miniature golf. In August, 2018 Magda will complete her butterfly sanctuary! We hope you will come back and we look forward to hosting you again!

“Amazing Costa Rica trip”
Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Wow. Even though it was a short stay, it was everything and more what we expected. The house was amazing looking like Jurassic park and walter the driver / mag the landlord were way more than helpful. Highly suggest anyone looking for an amazing experience to stay here and listen to Robert for things to do. He will not disappoint!

“Great views! Relaxing atmosphere.”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were very pleased with this rental. It was exactly as it was portrayed in the ad. The house was close enough to town, and it had the amenities that we wanted. The view from the pool area was fantastic, and it was different each day depending on the cloud formations. Great view of the sunrise (if you are up that early!).
