Everything was really eden at Eden Atenas. The cabin was private, comfortable and exactly what we were looking for as a couple. My birdwatching husband was perfectly content with just hanging on the deck and i had to actually drag him away so we wouldn't be late to Jan's special breakfast. Speaking of- Jan and Avtar were fun and funky people with amazing conversation. They were the perfect mix of knowing when you want privacy to jumping into an in depth discussion about literature. They also recommended us a great driver who helped us negotiate payment at the market with a non functional ATM and a hand full of various us dollars and colones. This cabin is a cabin. Sounds redundant, but its not an apartment, its a cabin. If you're not into being close to nature, this probably isn't for you. Bugs can and will sneak in. Just keep it clean and you won't have any problems with sugar ants and the rest can be shooed out. Overall, highly recommend if you're looking for something off the beaten path but is still close enough to town (10 min) and centrally located to drive to various attractions.

When we arrived at the San Jose Airport in Costa Rica it was hectic just getting ourselves together and getting transportation to our place. Once we arrived to Calle Mimi poltton Azul it was paradise. Jan and Avatar welcomed us and so did Lilly and Max. They took us to our apartment and showed us around and let us know what was expected and the in and outs of the grounds. Both of the host were extremely welcoming and made you feel at home away from from. What we enjoyed most of all was that we were able to just relax and ask questions and find out what to see. When we decide to go back to Costa Rica we will make sure to stay here again. This was better than a five star resort.

We arrived as guests and left as friends. The apartment was a great space for us and we were quite comfortable. The walk to town was a bit longer than we had anticipated, but was certainly doable. Jan and Avtar helped us navigate the buses and taxis and were accommodating to our requests.

We stayed for one week at Eden Gardens and found the accommodations satisfactory. We stayed in the 2 bed apartment which is just down some steps from the pool. Note that the roof of the apartment is actually the floor for a covered deck which serves as a common area off the pool and as Avtar's 'office' during the day. The downside of this arrangement is that it limits your privacy and you can hear every sound from the deck when it is in use. We enjoyed the company of the friendly German Shepherds, Max and Lilly. Each evening, we'd invite Max in and he would lounge on the deck with us until bedtime. We were out and about every day, so did not use the pool. I did not notice any chairs and umbrellas as pictured on the Air B&B site. I would also concur with one previous guest review that the apartment seemed a bit worn and in need of minor repairs. The 2nd ceiling fan in the web site pictures has been removed... it would actually have been nice to have had it for additional air flow. That said, both Avtar and Jan were quick to offer help if we needed it.

Response from Eden:
Good to get feedback that we can use to improve. We are sorry that you did not mention that the noise on the deck was bothering you, while you were here. As you know, this is a big property and we could have utilized other space during your stay. Also, had you mentioned a desire for additional fans, we could have provided you with large floor standing ones. We do our very best, but can't help if we don't get real time feedback. We are glad that despite the few things you mentioned, that you enjoyed your stay. PS: The pool furniture is all here, just like in the pictures. We had put them all to the side whilst we were re-painting the pool deck.

The pictures don't do the place justice. The apartment was large and comfortable, with a big veranda that's ideal for morning coffee. The grounds are lushly planted, full of flowers and fruit and hummingbirds. Jan and Avtar -- the hosts -- are progressively minded and very welcoming. The center of Atenas is maybe five minutes by car, and access to highways going in all directions is pretty easy. It's a lovely place with lovely people, and we had a great 12 days there.

Eden Atenas was breathtaking. We had the most wonderful time relaxing in our beautiful, clean, private space overlooking stunning rainforest. We were provided our own hammock and access to multiple others across the beautiful property - which we enjoyed exploring! Our hosts provided the perfect balance of friendly chatter and respect for our privacy. We woke up each morning with the sun and the critters of the forest and spent our days exploring and enjoying everything Costa Rica has to offer. Highly recommend! We would come back again!
