A perfect place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to unwind (or not) this is the perfect place. The owners (Shelly and Roberto) are absolutely wonderful people and attend to your every need promptly. They will steer you in any direction you wish to go with confidence that you are getting the best care. The house is designed so that privacy, if needed, is an option and it is very spacious. The pool was wonderful - large and overlooked the valley below. A wonderful view at night. They also recommended dinner and breakfast places which we took advantage of and were more than pleased with the results. Their affiliation with Walter's Taxi and Tours was a great advantage. They were there to meet us at the airport (recommended) and took us directly to the house. No hassle there. He took us to the zip line tour after which he took us to a beautiful resort for lunch and was most accommodating and engaging. We attached ourselves to a driver named Christian (part of Walter's company) who picked us up any time we asked. He was prompt and courteous and most cheerful. We did not do a lot of touring as we were there for a rest - which we got! This was a win/win for us! Thank you Shelly and Roberto.

Stunning views match this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything I could dream of and more. The views were breathtaking both in the mornings watching the sunrise and at night with views of the twinkling lights below while sitting poolside. Shelly was a gracious host and quickly responded whenever I called with a question or to ask for recommendations on what to do or where to go in Atenas. My family loved their experience in Costa Rica and stay at Roca Verde and are already planning a return visit. You will not be disappointed!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

I went here with my wife, kids and best friend and his future wife. The experience was wonderful. Shelley really takes pride in what she do. She was very helpful and will try to accommodate you any way she can. The house was wonderful, very clean and quiet. The pictures do not do the experience any justice. I do not have anything bad to say about this home and my experience. We would definitely like to return. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: I enjoyed meeting you! It looked like the kids were having a great time in the pool and wading area while the adults enjoyed the huge valley view. We look forward to seeing you again.

Amazing House in Atenas!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families spent two weeks in Costa Rica and staying at this house in Atenas was at the top of our list. The house is in a gated community and sits at the top of the hill providing amazing views at all times of the day. The pictures do not do this place justice and we were completely satisfied with the quality of the house and amenities provided. Atenas is the best kept secret in Costa Rica!
