Well-built house, especially plumbing (no need for unpleasant 'waste' baskets in bathrooms...). Paved road so no dust storms to interfere with your harmony.

Beautiful Views and Location
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Atenas and at Casa Colibri.
Charlie was very nice, helpful and informative.
We had a wonderful time!
Thank you Charles!!!
Beautiful house in a great location.
We shared this house for a week with another couple who are good friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the outside area and pool where we spent many hours just reading and relaxing.
With the bedrooms on separate floors we had plenty of privacy. We had the top floor room, which felt more like a suite, with a huge bathroom, walk in wardrobe and balcony.
Our friends found the downstairs bedroom very convenient as one of them has mobility issues.
The property is in an ideal location being a short drive or cheap taxi ride to restaurants supermarkets etc.
The area is cooler than the coast with a breeze which meant we did not even have to use the fans at night.
Our very helpful host Charles kept in contact via WhatsApp which was very handy and I must say this was the best internet connection we had in six weeks.
Felt right at home and enjoyed trips out from a great central location and walks down to the town
Comfortable home with lovely features and pretty garden. Excellent views and great bird-watching, especially from balcony at dawn. Always a good breeze - slept well once we got used to the natural noises. Nice walk to town and friendly locals. Felt safe - neighbours around but privacy. Spent a happy week travelling in all directions but enjoyed returning to the pool and real relaxation, feeling truly “at home”.
So much better than I even imagined
I was so lucky Charles had room for me on a trip that I planned 5 days in advance. He was so helpful and accommodating a sheer joy to work with.
This was one of the best VRBO homes I’ve ever stayed in. It was twice as nice as I expected. It was modern yet rustic. Absolutely sparkling clean totally perfect for one to two families but I was lucky to have place all to myself didn’t want to leave speaking of I only left once. Everything I needed was here.
The house has a beautiful pool that was extremely clean and perfect for lap swimming or just wading and relaxing which I did both of.
The beds were super comfy AND did I mention the view!!! The view really from both upstairs and downstairs was incredible. I had my own little piece of paradise for 4 days.
I saw lots of wildlife here but none inside which I was very happy with. The iguanas outside kept me amused as well as the various birds and sounds of the wild.
The kitchen is a perfect gathering spot. I wish I would of brought my husband I would have prepared delightful meal.
The bathrooms were so clean and the hot tubs and showers were just what I needed. Thank you for opening up your home to me. I will be back.
Beautiful house in a perfect climate
Casa Colibri was perfect. Location is close to a friendly town. Owner is very helpful. Met us late coming in from San Jose and gave us many good recommendations for in town and eksewhere. The house could not be nicer with the lovely pool and 2 bedrooms both with bathrooms. Good location with some nice local restaurants, grocery store, everything you could need. Good place to take some day trips to Arenal, Monteverde, etc, only wish we could have stayed longer.
Atenas is a quaint town with low humidity and cool temperatures. Its central location makes it ideal for beach/deep sea fishing activities (45 mins away) or Cloud Forest activities (zip-lining, horseback riding (45 mins away) or volcano exploring (2 hours away). Sizzle at the beach all day and then spend a cool night in Atenas!
