Description

The space

My home is custom built with a beautiful French touch, nestled in the mountains of Costa Rica.

The best part of my casita is the breathtaking view accompanied by humming birds, butterflies, and more. If you have a desire to cook, the kitchen includes all appliances plus additional house warming gifts when you arrive.

If you would like a relaxing place to call home, I would highly recommend booking this airbnb listing. We rent our guesthouse on a 3 days, weekly or even monthly basis, Located 50 m from the main house, it consists of one bedroom, with two double beds, a modern bathroom and shower, beautiful custom built kitchen, plus a lounge opening onto a terrace with a spectacular view as seen in the photos.

When you arrive, you will quickly notice the surrounding tropical views plus the safety and security of a 24 hour watch guard and gate. You may relax in the garden, where there is sun, and you can be in the shadow as well. If you love flowers, this is the place to be as we have hummingbirds coming, toucans, and splendid butterflies. The tropical feel at it’s finest!

I also allow access to my personal garden where I grow fresh herbs for you to utilize in your kitchen. The herbs include basil, rosemary, lemon mint, tomatoes, dill, tarragon and culantro (which is the better version of cilantro).

My puppy, Maya, is a small schnauzer who actively runs throughout our main property. If you prefer she does not come near you, I can arrange for this.

My husband and I live full-time on the property and are available if you need anything. We set up the guest house in a way where if you do not want to be bothered, we will make sure to maintain your privacy.

We do enjoy meeting new people and would love to sit and learn your story over a nice glass of wine.

Only 20 min from the airport, and we could provide a drive at a great rate plus a welcoming Costa Rican arrival. Conveniently located between San Jose and the beaches of the Pacific, many sights can be visited within one hour like Poas, Jaco,Grecia, and even more. Buses will take you downtown San José, or other places.

Our home is located in a residential area gated community where you are 20 minutes walking distance from the center of Atenas and its shops. The farmers market is on Friday mornings that includes luscious vegetables and fruits for all less than $10 bucks. The property includes fully functioning home, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, 24/7 security, plus a local phone to use to call for a taxi.

During the high season, especially during the Christmas Holiday and the Easter Holiday, I rent our home for $500/week. It is very popular to spend those holidays here in Atenas, Costa Rica.

If there is anything I could improve, please let me know and I will be happy to accommodate for your stay. If you want further information on the location of our home, feel free to look up our community called Roca Verde. And as always, please message me with any further questions.

Enjoy your stay.

My husband and I live on the same property and provide a cell phone for you to communicate in the area for taxis. We respect your privacy and will only come by if you would like us too.

Very safe, 24/7 guarded community, with tranquility and respect. Local residents enjoy walking around the area to take in the spectacular views. Everyone is friendly and respectful.

You also have a very short walk to downtown Atenas where you can enjoy local restaurants, grocery store, plus additional amenities.

Getting around

Downtown Atenas is a short 20 minute walk from our home. However, if you would like to call a taxi, it will cost $3-5 at the most. You also have the chance to ride a local bus that goes toSan Jose or Alajuella.Please remember that we provide you with a local phone to help you get around town

Isabelle and Marc were the perfect hosts. Very welcoming and accommodating. Between them they speak 4 different languages. Casita was wonderfully equipped and cozy. We felt very safe. The casita was the best part of our vacation.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Isabelle's property. The accommodation is very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and unique outdoor living space which completely suits Atenas's warm climate. The property is located is a secure, peaceful complex next door to Isabelle's property and beautiful gardens. Isabelle and Mark (and Maya their dog!) were such friendly and warm hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We'd highly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to see this part of Costa Rica.

We had a lovely week staying at Isabelle's casita high up on the hill overlooking Atenas and the hills surrounding. We loved the simplicity and the layout of the casita, the night chill, the beautiful breeze and the views of sunrises and sunsets. It was a peaceful and relaxing week that I would repeat anytime. Thank you so much for making our stay so welcoming and hospitable!

My husband and I absolutely loved this Beautiful casita, the owners and Maya the schnauzer! The locale is unique as we were sitting overlooking the valley, generally removed from traffic and village sounds. It was very tranquil and the airflow was wonderful. The casita was well equipped, beds comfortable, and screened windows and patio doors provided great air movement for sleeping. Lovely. Perfect setting for a couple anytime of the year. The views of the valley and stars at night were fabulous. Thank you dear hosts.

Isabelle and her family were so helpful and kind to me. Her cottage is in a lovely neighborhood, yet my privacy was complete and the view was SPECTACULAR.

My husband and I had the immense pleasure of staying at the casita for 1 month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Belle and Marc are amazing hosts, super nice, kind and thoughtful. We felt like we were staying with family within the first couple of days. Maya (the dog) is adorable and was a very welcome visitor for us. The casita is exactly as lovely as shown on the photos, but even better to experience in real life. Everything was clean, comfortable and the decor is so nice. There are so many perks to this rental that we loved, like the amazing quality of drinking water right from the tap, yoga classes, a great masseuse, and farmer's market all within walking distance, and a well-equipped kitchen to prepare all of our meals. Finally the landscaping and flower gardens, along with the amazing view and variety of birds and butterflies made the whole place feel heavenly. We are so happy we chose this place and highly recommend it!
