We had a brilliant stay at this house. The views were beautiful, lovely spacious house and Jay was very helpful. He had left a very useful folder of useful info, including names of restaurants. One of which we went to and had the best steak! Great value aswell, we are thinking about going back soon :)
We had an incredible time at Jay's. He was very accommodating when our flight was delayed. The views are unbelievable and made for a very relaxing stay. Highly recommended!
My husband and I stayed at this house for 3 nights to kick off our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The photos and reviews are excellent but still do not do justice. You truly have to see to believe. The house is very open but we never felt as though we did not have complete privacy. The house is located on top of a mountain (with spectacular views!) and the temperature was absolutely perfect. The bed was incredibly comfortable and was covered in rose peddles and a bouquet of flowers when we arrived. The house was incredibly clean and Jay was the most accommodating host we have experienced so far with airbnb. Anything we needed, he was quick to reply and made sure we were completely satisfied. For instance, we really wanted a guitar and happened to ask if he had one around we could use. He hunted one down and had it delivered within the hour! We can't say enough about how amazing our time was at this house. Atenas was a very safe and friendly place with great food and tons to do. This house was like a private resort with a super accommodating host that is also incredibly respectful of your privacy. We recommend this place to anyone going to Costa Rica! Why stay at a resort with hundreds of people when you can have your own private resort on top of a mountain with the best views and complete privacy?? We will ABSOLUTELY be returning to this house! Jay- we can't thank you enough for allowing us to stay at your amazing property and ensuring our honeymoon was special and memorable. Looking forward to next time!
We really liked Jay's House, it was a dream, it is located in a very nice area of Atenas, I would say the best around Atenas, Grecia and Barrio Jesus. Great views and great gate area. Jay is really a super host, he made fruits and drinks available for us to use. The house was really clean, the rooms and beds had a really nice smell, that was amazing, really awesome housekeeping.
We've had a wonderful stay at this luxurious apartment. Great rooms, beautiful open air kitchen, stunning views.
Jay is a great host, inviting us with fruit, coffee etc.
The apartment is located close to the airport (30 min drive) and therefore very convenient if you are heading to the airport early (or arriving late).
nos quedamos por 3 noches en esta preciosa casa, a unos 5 minutos en auto de Atenas y con unas vistas inmejorables. La casa esta equipada FULL, es muy comoda para 5 personas. Ademas la nevera equipada con alimentos como vino, leche, huevos, pan, cervezas, cafe, etc. Todo estuvo EXCELENTE. Solo un detalle, los muebles de la terraza necesitan mantenimiento. Solo un detalle. Limpio, seguro,confortable y con una recepcion muy amable. MUY recomendable, sobre todo para familias o estadias largas . Definitavamente, VAYAN . Gracias Jay y Wendy.
Oh my gosh, this place is incredible! We had such a relaxing time here.
We were greeted by Wendy at the house as soon as we arrived. After offering us some delicious chocolates she gave us a quick tour, made sure we had everything we needed and handed us the keys.
The rental is set up with two bedrooms separated by a large open air kitchen. One bedroom has a huge comfy bed, the other is furnished with two additional large beds. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom. Since it was just my wife and I, we only used the room with the single king sized bed. I think it may well be the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on!
The open air kitchen is equipped with two small refrigerators, stove, sink, dishes, etc. In addition to the chocolate, there was a selection of fresh fruits as well as coffee and a selection of teas. One of the refrigerators was stocked with eggs, milk and bread, everything we needed to cook breakfast the following morning. Being in the mountains, the outside temperature was very comfortable and we were amazed by the lack of bugs. There is an additional covered sitting area a few steps uphill from the house with a great view of the valley.
Being only about a half hour drive from the SJO airport, this is a great location to both begin and end a visit to Costa Rica. It was the perfect location for us to explore some of the surround towns and we found the town of Atenas itself to be delightful.
I highly recommend this rental.
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.
Jay was an incredible host, very thorough, the house was to die for and we felt our hearts warm every time we open the front door and came back "home".
He was incredibly gracious and his outfitting of property, I cannot say enough good things about this experience. A+.
The view from the master bedroom at night was exquisite, the moon rising, views of the mountains and the pool, the separate guest Villa was incredibly delightful with an Open air shower, beds were comfortable, the place was meticulously clean, and this is a true vacation renters DREAM!
Thank you so much Jay, we look forward to hosting you one day soon.
Simple said...amazing property. Really spectacular view. Pictures can't really capture the view, must see.
Thanks Jay/Wendy for the attention.
Definetly will keep on coming.
Jay was a pleasure to work with, he communicated his trip well with us and informed us his group would arrive on different days. Jay left the house clean and tidy. We were happy to have Jay. We are looking forward to Jay staying over again within a couple of months as he mentioned. You are welcome any time!
