The casita is in near perfect condition, well-furnished and includes everything necessary for a trouble-free stay. More importantly, the hosts, Diane and Cameron, were friendly and did not hesitate to answer any questions we had relative to our stay in the Atenas.
We believe this is the best place to stay in Atenas! The casita is on two floors, each with a deck that overlooks a beautiful valley behind the house. The kitchen is large and well supplied, the bedroom downstairs is comfortable and well equipped and the living/dining area spans in and out of the house- eating our meals on the upper deck was a delight. The house is bright, cheerful and decorated artistically with pottery and paintings that reflect Costa Rica. We walked to town, about 3 miles, most days, enjoying the fabulous views to distant mountains in all directions- the walk is mostly downhill, through quiet areas, but keep in mind that the first 15 minutes is up four short, but steep hills—we even got to like those! And the little town of Atenas has everything you need, including some good restaurants, several supermarkets and free lending libraries . Atenas also makes an ideal base to explore other parts of Costa Rica. ( We used the bus system most of the time, which is amazingly inexpensive).
Our hosts could not have been kinder or more helpful. They made our stay even more enjoyable and helped us figure out numerous mysteries relating to using banks, lining up taxis etc.
Renting this casita was a wonderful experience for us- we give it our highest recommendation.
