CASA LA FRONTERA DEL CIELO (The House Next To Heaven)
 
The Only One With Spectacular Views Of Mountains AND Pacific Ocean
 
You will believe it only when you see it in person (as the photos posted here unfortunately do not do justice to the nearly 360 degrees of panoramas). This house sits standing watch at the top of a mountain, at an altitude of over 3200 feet, above the town of Atenas overlooking the great western valley that extends all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Located as it is at 'Heaven's doorstep', it has the most astonishing views found in Central America available right out of your living room, day or night. Not only can you see the Costa Rican lush (possessing all conceivable shades of green!) rainforest from most of the perimeter of the property, but can also take in the Pacific coast and ocean from your infinity pool. Enjoy your very own private garden teeming with wildlife, vivid tropical flora and fruit trees including avocado, lemon, mango, banana, plantain, guava, coffee and other exotic delicacies. Watch and listen to the local wild birds as they sing and flit from tree to tree in the grove behind the house. (You'll be astounded at how close the little chicks get when they pay you a visit at the pool during one of Costa Rica's gentle rains.) Enjoy the soothing breezes from your hammock in the front of the house, or in the house’s unique reading room which allows you, while staying indoors, to enjoy the cross wind that comes up one side of the mountain and down the other. [National Geographic named Atenas as having the BEST climate in the world. Experience it for yourself!] And the vistas don’t quit. You can still drink them in during the unparalleled experience of your very own private 'jacuzzi with a view', or while bar-b-queuing or dining al fresco in the house’s veranda.
 
The house, which sleeps four to six people, is itself an architectural marvel. The striking wrought iron winding staircase and railings naturally draw your eyes to the dramatic twenty-foot-high wood ceilings in the main house. The kitchen’s silver and gold-veined marble counters invite you to join your other guests to sit and share in a meal or cocktails. The open design of the reading room, with its large windows that make you feel like you are outside while still indoor, provides a road map to relaxation. Excellently appointed throughout, the house’s two other bedrooms and three bathrooms are, likewise, marked by impressive attention to detail as evidenced by exquisite marble and wood finishes, and finely crafted furniture and fixtures.
 
We suggest that our guests sample the following at least one evening during their stay with us: try the Jacuzzi while turning the outside lights off. On a cloudless night this will prove to be a truly transcendental experience. The beauty of the nighttime sky at our location on the mountaintop is striking. You will swear you can just stretch your hand and touch the ancient astronomers’ celestial sphere. (A sneak preview can be seen in one of our posted photos.) It’s one way to find out why we are named The House Next To Heaven.
 
A five minute drive to Atenas, but also, given its central location in the country, it is close to most of the main attractions in Costa Rica: including its volcanoes, butterfly gardens, rainforests equipped with canopy tours and zip lines waiting for you to explore them and, yes, it’s within driving distance of the famous Pacific coast beaches. Multiple tours in the area allow for boating, white water rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and so much more. For those seeking culture, Escazú (a sophisticated bilingual area of fabulous restaurants, stores, exclusive boutiques, English language bookstores and movies) is also a 45-minute drive away.

As an additional service to our house guests, we offer a fee-based airport pick up and drop-off to help you avoid the potential hassles involved in the transitions into and out of your time in Costa Rica (something to particularly consider when you have night-time travel plans, but a nice comfort to have in any event). We also provide car rentals and tours to all corners of the country, including the Poas and Arenal volcanoes, a 'crocodile tour' to Jaco, a tour to the La Paz Waterfall gardens, and tours custom made to our guests' requests throughout Costa Rica.

Reviews

Amy H.

The property was beautiful and well maintained. We enjoyed the views and all the amenities. It is a short drive to town and not too far from any of the excursions we wanted to do. Aad and Marian were great!

Alison E.

The setting and views from this property are stunning! We really enjoyed the home. It had everything we needed for seven people. The town of Atenas is away from tourist areas and enjoyable to be a part of the locals. We had several tours through Bunki Tours (ATV, zip-lining and catamaran). We would give each of those 5-stars too! Only downfall would be the 1-2 hour drives to these activities. Driving is an adventure on the curvy, steep hills especially when it’s raining or foggy. If you’re looking for a location to relax, watch the variety of birds and enjoy the views of the mountains, this is it!

We loved the house and its location. the view was great! enjoyed having our own car, I would recommend renting your own car. eat at the sodas they are the best.
