Modern home in the country near Atenas, conveniently located for taking day trips or just enjoying our fantastic climate. Our tranquil and secluded lifestyle friendly paradise awaits you.

The Tortuga Room accommodates four - queen bed and sofa bed, kitchenette, private bath. The Rana Room is available for 1-2 more.

The Space

Our two acre property is on the edge of a coffee farm. We have mango, papaya and jacote trees with fruits seasonally and bananas most of the year. Wake to the songs of toucans and other tropical birds.

Our pool has an area for sitting and soaking as well as a deeper section. We have ample patio space both with both sunny and shady areas.

The house features 5 meter ceilings with fans in every room. There is no need for heating or a/c with daytime temperatures of 24-33c (75-91 F) and comfortable nights of 17-20c (63-68 F). There is usually a nice breeze up from the valley during the day.

Guest Access

Wander the gardens amid our tropical plants. Or walk the farm lane through the coffee plantation.

Relax in the shaded comfort of our patios or lounge in the sun. Our pool is salt chlorinated with no smell of chlorine and no taste of salt. And clothing is optional for those so inclined.

Breakfast is included daily. Optional dinners are available for a nominal charge. Our meals have a 'comida tipica' Costa Rican flair, but North American or continental breakfasts can be arranged.

Interaction with Guests

We will gladly help you arrange day trips with trusted driver/guides. Options include the Pacific beaches, national parks, volcanoes, museums, shopping and adventure activities like zip-lining. There are lots of things to do within an hour and a half of our location. Ask for our list of suggestions.

If you plan to spend a few days with us we will create an affordable activity package geared to your interests.

The Neighborhood

The house is located close to the main road but on a secluded farm lane. Very private and tranquil. Secure grounds.

Getting around

Three to six buses daily to Atenas or Palmares, depending on the day. Local taxi is a good alternative and inexpensive, under $10 to either town. We can arrange car rentals but driving after dark (6 pm) is not a good idea as the roads are narrow and not well marked.

Other Things to Note

We have two enthusiastic but friendly dogs - an overweight lab and a small poodle-Maltese cross. They like attention :)

  • Nous étions les premiers hôtes airbnb de bob et c'était plus que parfait. Très belle maison confortable proche d'Atenas au milieu des plantations de café, chambre
    au top , propriété superbe. Bob et Carmen étaient aux petits soins et nous avons beaucoup échangé avec eux. Une halte s'impose dans ce lieu de quiétude et de convivialité. Encore merci pour votre gentillesse et pour votre ouverture aux autres. Patrick et Véronique.

About
Ex-Canadian, retired, living for the past two years in Costa Rica. I have a very private home in a tranquil setting in the country just north of Atenas, a city described as having the best climate in the world. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing the beauty of my new country. I am a non-smoker, very light social drinker, part-time naturalist and accepting of all lifestyles. My partner, Carmen, is Costa Rican and an excellent cook who will provide you with tasty & healthy 'comida tipica', authentic local cuisine.
