The space

Centrally located to be near the airport and many of Costa Rica's best attractions, yet a world away from the tourist bustle, Eden Atenas is the perfect headquarters for your Costa Rican visit. Here you will be tempted to just relax by the pool, enjoy spectacular tropical gardens (the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar), watch Toucans or Mot Mots, and be wowed by the best breakfast in the country. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching sunrise over the volcano, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden.
The only complaint we ever hear, is "If I'd only known, I would have stayed longer"

Guest access

Contact us even if the calendar shows not available because we have other rooms, cabin, or apartment that may fit your schedule.
Hammocks, rockers, zero-gravity lounge chairs and secret benches - Eden Atenas has literally dozens of ways and places to kick back and chill. From a hammock for three, looking out over the valley, to wooden loungers tucked in the secret orchid garden, to zero-gravity chairs by the pool which let you forget anything but the stars above, to traditional Costa Rican rockers lining the veranda outside your room, to a simple plank bench beneath an orange tree, why not spend a day just moving from one spot to another - then try and pick a favorite!The Skies - No matter the time of year, the skies of Eden Atenas are life changing. Whether it is watching the dawn illuminate iconic volcanoes, being enchanted by the unique tropical cloud colors painted by sunsets over our valley forest, being thrilled by tropical storms in the distance (or overhead!), or simply falling in love with the southern stars laid across a velvet cloth of night, you will never forget the skies.

Interaction with guests

The neighborhood

The Weather - Listed by National Geographic as "The World's Best Climate", Atenas, Costa Rica is a mecca for warm weather lovers who wish to avoid the scorching heat and humidity of the beaches (they are still close enough to visit). Feel free to leave your sweaters at home.
Jan, Avtar, Suzen and Community- In addition to offering a guest house, Eden Atenas is a small community of resident and non-resident members dedicated to sustainable practices, creative expression, and holding a small piece of this planet for Peace. Whether you choose to join us for Sunday meditation, grab your mat for some yoga, spend and hour helping out in the organic food gardens, or just hang out and chat about the "deeper" things in life, the community or Eden Atenas welcomes you.

Getting around

Central, yet off the track, location - Only 25 minutes from Costa Rica's main airport, Eden Atenas is both central and a world apart. While many of Costa Rica's top attractions are less than an hour away - La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Poas Volcano, the Capital City of San Jose, the beaches of Jaco, Zoo Ave Wildlife Rescue Center, and two National Parks - Eden Atenas is a world removed from the tourist crowds and hustle. Staying at Eden Atenas lets you see the sights while allowing you the experience of a private vacation villa.

We had a great time, the garden and the swimming pool were very good. The host prepared a very good breakfast for the guest. I think the host rush the guests to finish breakfast but I guess that is part of their business.

Response from Eden:
Thank you for your review. Sorry you felt that about the breakfast. Many of our guests spend hours at the breakfast table. I will keep an eye on this in the future. All the bet to you.

Gorgeous bnb, fabulous breakfasts, nice pool, very nice hosts. It is not feasible to walk to town from here. I didn't have a car but taxis were easy and only cost about $3. The only reason I give Eden Atenas less than 5 stars is the two large, friendly, but very vocal German shepherds who kept me awake at night.

Lovely place. On a dirt road a bit outside of town but easy access.

Wonderfull place. Beautiful room, garden, pool and view. Top notch breakfast, Jan should really create her own cookbook, I would love a copy! We had a great time and enjoyed the pool, cuddling with the dogs and finding oursleves in interesting conversations with Herr Loos. Overal great stay!

This was an amazing value for my trip to Atenas in Costa Rica. The room was clean, spacious, and had a small desk that I could work on. Eden was awesome, the doggies very cute and the breakfasts OFF THE CHARTS. Only downside was the barking dogs at night. Bring earplugs if you're sensitive. I felt well-handled at this beautiful, low-key resort.

The BnB is even more beautiful than in the pictures. Situated a little bit outside of town with a wonderful view of the surrounding lush forest. There is a wonderful communal space on the terrace just next to the pool, where one can read or just hang around in one of the hammocks. Jan was very welcoming as a host, making sure we were comfortable. And in the morning we were served the most amazing breakfast in the garden! Thank you!

Eden is surely one of the more charming airbnb places I have ever stayed. A really pretty spot, and thoughtful hosts. I wish I could have stayed for more than one night. Definitely consider this place if you are coming to Atenas.
