Mr. Trudeau is a marvelous host and Casa Bella is a wonderful, glamorous, adventurous place to stay. Jay meets you when you arrive at the gated community and provides you with all the information you need to make your stay comfortable. He immediately strikes you as an honest and forthright person. After the initial greeting and introduction Jay allows you the utmost privacy but is only a phone call away if you need anything at all. A cell phone with GPS is provided so when you venture out there is no fear of getting lost and in the back of your mind you know Jay will be there to help you out. The view from the living area is spectacular looking out over the lights of San Juan and the Central Valley of Costa Rica. Watching the lights slowly twinkle on each evening and the moon rise became a nightly ritual. There is almost always a gentle breeze tempering the warmest part of the day and lulling you to sleep at night. The bed is of high quality and extremely comfortable as are all the furnishings. We stayed at Casa Bella for four weeks, never had a complaint or problem, and we will stay there again without a second thought when we return to Costa Rica in October. It easily became our home away from home and we look forward to our return.
Four of us stayed at Jay's house on the hill for two weeks. The open air living area was lovely, and the layout with a private bedroom and bath on either side worked wonderfully for us.
Jay welcomed us with wine, fruit and coffee, and eggs and butter. During our stay Jay was helpful but not intrusive. His restaurant recommendations were great. We ate at all of them.
Above the house is a separate sitting area with a wet bar, and a 180 degree view of the city and the mountains. The sunsets were spectacular.
Future renters should be aware that the property sits at the top of a very steep and winding road. A car would be a good idea. It's quite a walk.
We would definitely stay there again and maybe we will!
I spent a wonderful 4 nights/5 days staying at Casa Bella in Atenas between Christmas and New Years. The views were stunning and the space is exactly as it looks on the pictures. I did all my cooking there at the house and it had all the cooking needs (pots, pans, dishes, cooking utensils, glasses). He even had olive oil, salt and pepper, etc. I knew from reading reviews that he may have fruit there (which he did- tons!), but I was surprised about all the other extras - like some chocolate, wine, eggs, juice, water, etc. The wifi was great and he even had a TV with some movies in the room. The location is only a 30 minute drive from the airport so it is really convenient. It was a bit of a drive to the beaches and I found myself driving up and down Routes 27 and 34 a lot, but it was such a treat after the drives to come back to this quiet, restful spot. All in all, it was a perfect, quiet, relaxing getaway!
We stayed at Casa Bella over Christmas and it was a lovely peaceful place to spend our holiday. It was impeccably clean and Jay was nice enough to leave us some fruit, chocolate and other tasty items. We will definitely return in the future.
Casa Bella was beautiful. The views breathtaking. Wendy was our host because Jay was away on business. Everything was clean with food left for us. House was located about 3.5 hrs from Monteverde, 2+ hrs to Manuel Antonio and Poas/La Paz. Doka Coffee Tour about 1 hr and Zoo Ave 1/2 hour are worth a visit. Was difficult to find. Limited street signs in Costa Rica. We drove to house from Route 1 and Rt 27. Easiest to get to from Route 27 (toll road, 1000 colones). Everyone was super nice in town.
This house is even better in person. We originally booked this for the view, but Jay was so accommodating! He had fruits on the table, some groceries in the fridge, and a music system. It was perfect!!!!
Jay's house is amazing with a beautiful view of the whole cities from up the hills on the terrace. All the rooms are really large and nicely designed. The beds were really cosy. Jay was very helpful, he left us a cell phone were we could contact him, and whenever we needed something he was very prompt. He also organized us a trip to Poas volcano and la paz gardens. I recommend this place!
