My wife and I loved our stay here. The grounds and pool are very well maintained and the beautifully constructed cabins are immaculate, and come with a well equipped kitchen. The owners, Jutta and Thomas are very helpful indeed, and we much enjoyed exploring the area around. I can see why some visitors might feel a car was necessary, but we found the distance to Atenas (just over 3 km) was a pleasant walk and the 6 or 7 buses a day to and from grocery shopping in town were great. For travel further afield, Jutta has access to a first class taxi, and frequent cheap buses from Atenas to San Jose can take you most places in Costa Rica.
We have enjoyed this property very much over the last six years. We will continue to return to this garden setting with comfortable daytime and nighttime temperatures to visit our hosts Tommy and Jutta.
We were gutted we only stayed 1 night here, we didn't want to leave! Jutta the host and her husband were amazing, we felt like family, they really looked after us! The apartment was beautiful, right next to the pool, clean, our own kitchen. Breakfast was very very good! Lots of activities to do in the area. Highly recommended!
What a perfect place to start our stay in Costa Rica! Clean airy cabins, well-equipped kitchens, sweet little pool, gorgeous landscaping, friendly hosts, best climate in CR. You need a vehicle though, it's a bit out of town.
Totally enjoyed our stay. Made memories that will last a lifetime - will be back! This is a secure rural setting 35 -45 minutes west the Main International Airport for San Jose,Costa Rica (SJO). The location is 2,700 feet above sea level, so the air is clean and dry. It is well managed and maintained by Jutta & Tommy. Easily accessible by car, taxi and bus. It's a 30 minute walk to the village of Atenas. The 20 acre site consists of 2 parts. The "Apartamentos" part is actually 5 separate self contained houses clustered around a crystal clear swimming pool and a fully equipped "Rancho" with an outdoor grill and an unlimited supply of "Teak" firewood. I love firing up the grill and cooking steaks on the wood fire. The houses are surrounded by banana trees,coconut palms, lipstick palms,flowers and wild birds galore. Amenities include 6 day a week maid service. The second part of the site is a mini farm with laying hens, riding horses, cows, talking parrots, herb garden, fish pond, 2 friendly dogs. and a garden iguana. Guests have access to the whole property. I enjoyed both the pool and being able work in a stimulating natural setting.…
