My girlfriend and i stayed at the cute cottage in Atenas, Costa Rica for 9 days and just loved it! Our hosts Isabelle and her husband Marc were so nice and accommodating. We had a little trouble with getting a taxi to one of our destinations and Isabelle arranged a taxi for us which was extremely helpful. The community was very safe and the views were amazing when we go back we would definitely stay there again.
The reservation was canceled 241 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Response from Isabelle:
I would like to apologize for the cancelation i did with Ryan, i went to fast in answering, as my place is rented at your dates.
Thank you so much for understanding this mistake
Good day to you
We had a great time in Atenas, thanks to Isabel, her husband Mark, and her sister. They could not have been more hospitable. Even though it was over the holidays and their daughter was visiting from Paris, they still found time to assist and befriend us.
In addition, the space they provided for my wife and me was first rate. The view from the patio was especially beautiful and restful. The plumbago was in full bloom, the skies were deep blue, and nothing obstructed the view of the mountains in the distance.
Also, their recommendations concerning what to do, where to eat, etc. were very helpful. Belle recommended a marvelous masseuse that my wife is still raving about. All in all, they took exceptional care of us and helped us have a wonderful end to our holiday in Costa Rica.
Oh my, what a delight our two weeks in Belle's lovely casita were! The beautiful pictures here are completely accurate, but do not begin to do it justice. The hours we spent on the spacious patio sipping Atenas-grown coffee and watching the mariposas and humming birds visit the lush flowers and plants in the stunning garden as the fresh breezes came in from the Pacific were simply glorious. We had planned to see more sites, but found ourselves just wanting to relax and enjoy the view of the mountain ranges across the scenic Atenas valley.
The bright, airy kitchen was just right for cooking some of our own meals with produce from the nearby farmers market in town on Fridays. Belle also gave us several marvelous restaurant recommendations in town. There is no better location for day trips to the coast, volcanoes, and even the gorgeous modern mall in Escazu. In less than 10 minutes you are on the fabulous new Highway 27 to either San Jose or the wonderful Pacific beaches.
We will be back as soon as we can! Thank you, Belle!
Séjour de rêve...nous avons été accueillis par des hôtes charmants, à l'écoute de nos besoins tout en étant discrets. La maison était parfaite, confortable, bien équipée et dans un décor paysager avec une vue magnifique.
It was a great place to stay on our way from airport - in a beautiful development. Isabelle recommended a great local restaurant for dinner.
Isabelle was our guest at Pelican House on the Osa Peninsula. She and her family were an absolute joy! She is warm, a great communicator and very knowledgeable about Costa Rica. Thank you for visiting with us, Isabelle!
