Vista Atenas feels a million miles away - with views that go on forever - but it's close enough to everything you'll want to see in Costa Rica.

This 4 bed/4 bath house with new pool is the perfect place to relax, and to launch your adventure.

The space

- 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.

Guest access

You can use the entire house consisting of 4 beds/4 en-suite bathrooms (two in the main house, and two separate brand new "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!

Interaction with guests

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.

the view was amazing and the people of Atenas were welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed fruits from the garden and swam in the Vista view pool daily

Sorry to hear that one of your queries went unanswered. Was that sent to me or Marian? The local queries are the responsibility of Aad and Mariane as I am not on site. Once I have your reply I can see what happened. Best wishes. Douglas

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and this was a great place to stay. All you have to do is walk out the front door to experience the birds and other wildlife of Costa Rica, we did see monkeys in the trees across the way from the house. The one thing you will want to do when you arrive at the house is jump in the pool because it is situated in an ideal spot with great water temperature and views. Since we were coming in late, we let the property manager drive us to the house, at a cost. It was good to do that because there are a lot of winding roads and it would have been hard to find the house on our own. But we didn't use the property manager after that, we decided we could probably figure it out at a lower cost on our own. The house was spacious, clean, the kitchen was well equipped for our needs and it had great views through the several huge windows. We did realize after arriving that we needed a car to go to any of the sites such as Monteverde or Manuel Antonio (2.5hr drives) or even the town of Atenas ( 1h hour walk). Overall this was a nice house in a nice town, (we did take the hour walk to the town and went to the market), but you will need a car to get around and the beaches are not close by.

We had a lovely time at Douglas' house. The house and the 2 casitas are clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool a lot. The Property Managers, Aad and Marian, are wonderful people. They are very helpful and are the best people to welcome you to Costa Rica! Thank you!

I don't know where to begin!! Doug's home was simply amazing! spacious beautiful house and casitas that we felt very welcomed to stay in and treat it and maintain it even better than our home! The views are magnificent overlooking the central valley from a high hilltop and everything even looks better in reality than the pictures! We had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed the property and the pool a lot in addition to visiting many interesting sites in Costa Rica as the villa is almost an hour away from major attractions such as volcanoes, beach, waterfalls...etc. Doug's property managers took good care of us and were very attentive when we needed them. I highly recommend staying a Doug's home for your CR adventure. You won't regret it :)

Douglas' home is absolutely stunning. Sitting atop a tall hill overlooking a gorgeous valley, we could not have asked for a more peaceful, relaxing or beautiful place to spend our short stay in Costa Rica. The weather was exactly as advertised-- warm enough in the day to swim in the pool, but cool enough at night to sleep with the windows wide open and enjoy the fresh breeze. Leticia, the house manager based in Costa Rica, was very sweet and accommodating, adjusting her schedule to welcome my co-traveler a few hours earlier than I initially told her I would be arriving. If you are not renting a car, I highly recommend Walter, the driver who Leticia recommended. He is very knowledgeable about the town (Atenas), giving us fantastic recommendations for restaurants and day trips. All in all, I would highly recommend Costa Rica, Atenas and Douglas' home for your stay in Costa Rica.
