Wir hatten ein schönes kleines Chalet mit kleinem Balkon mit tollem Blick ins Grüne. Viel Privatssphäre, das es unterhalb des Haupthauses liegt. Oben gab es das Haupthaus mit bed and breakfast und auch schönen Pool. Wir hatten ein gut eingerichtete Küche und haben das auch rege genutzt. Alles Sauber, genügend Handtücher; da von Natur umgeben direkter "Hör-Kontakt" zu Vögeln und Hähnen.
Lage mit dem Auto gar kein Problem, Atenas sehr schnell zu erreichen, ebenfalls der Airport. Ohne Auto wahrscheinlich auch möglich, kurze Fahrt mit Taxi nach Atenas (oder auch zu Fuss), wo Busse fahren.
Jan und Avtar sind wirklich sehr nette Gastgeber, immer aufmerksam, ob man alles hat, auch der Kontakt im Vorfeld war schnell und super!
My mum and I had a wondeful stay in Atenas. Waking up everyday surrounded by this outstanding garden was a true privilege. The place is really cared for and it feels like home. The house is everything you expected to be if not more. Our privacy was highly respected, which was needed after so much time apart. Similarily, time was taken to answer all of our questions - even when very silly. We were provided lods of tips and the hosts were always available and helpful. We would definitely stay there if going back to Costa Rica and would highly recommand it.
A wonderful place to stay amongst the birds and trees, our "private cabin" was indeed private, overlooking the forest with huge windows and an airy feel to it. Although it was just one open-plan room it felt very spacious. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was simple but very nice to work in, and the desk was a very welcome bonus! I loved it!
Avtar & Jan were wonderful hosts, making us feel very at home. Jan took care of us in every way and even made us some delicious "treats" and arranged taxis, etc. The whole of Eden Atenas, with its several living spaces, beautiful gardens and fruit trees, and community-feel, was a tropical paradise. Atenas town is not too far, with a lovely weekly market. It was a wonderful area to relax and rejuvenate.
We did not want to leave after 10 days and continued to miss being there! Perhaps we will return when the time is right!
We had a such wonderful experience at Eden Atenas. Although the pictures are breathtaking, they hardly do the view justice. Sitting on the porch overlooking the gardens, you feel as though you are in absolute paradise. My boyfriend, now fiancée, proposed to me on our balcony. That's how perfect the view is. Jan and Avtar were terrific hosts. They exuded hospitality and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was perfect. Jan prepared a breakfast that has been the best meal of the trip. She went to great lengths to prepare is a five star meal. Avtar gave us a tour of the grounds and wonderful lesson on the local plant life. They were always around to answer any question, or provide pleasant conversation. All the while, completely respecting our space. We felt like we were completely alone in the middle of the jungle, but with two new friends right up the path. We stayed here because of its proximity to the airport, but will be making a return trip because of our experience. They even set up a driver for us that was also a great tour guide. I truly have nothing but positive things to say.
We stayed at Eden Atenas for 10 nights and had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The owners, Jan and Avtar, were warm and welcoming and always asking if we were OK or needed anything at all. The property is wonderfully situated about a 5 minute drive from town or 40 minute walk. We loved walking down the neighbouring dirt roads and enjoying the breathtaking views...something that wouldn't have been so easy to do if we had stayed in town. The pool is kept meticulously clean and the gardens on the property really are a sight to behold. The two resident German Shepherds, Max and Lily, are sweet and couldn't have been gentler with our 10 month old baby. The kitchen was well equipped and Jan offered a change of towels/linens a few times over the course of our stay. There is an amazing steakhouse 'El Tronco' located about a 10 minute walk away. We had a great time at Eden Atenas and would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Eden Atenas is aptly named. The lush gardens are truly like a slice of Eden. The amazing botanical diversity and the splashes of vibrant color everywhere make this the most beautiful spot I encountered in Costa Rica. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our mornings sitting on the cabina balcony, sipping our tea and watching the abundance of butterflies flit from bush to bush.
Jan and Avtar are warm, welcoming hosts, always ready to answer questions, give tips, and engage in intelligent conversation. Don't miss out on Jan's culinary expertise - we had a few meals there and enjoyed them immensely, especially when in the company of Jan and Avtar.
