About our home

Beautiful contemporary home with spectacular spaces inside & outside - Open spaces, high hardwood ceilings and floor to ceiling windows looking out to spectacular views. Casa Dos Leones has a great room with a comfortable living area including a 48 inch HD TV, a dining area that seats six and a large, very well equipped kitchen with a large granite-topped island around which we often gather with friends for a glass of wine. The master suite features a king size bed, and a beautiful master bath with twin sinks, a soaking tub and a wonderful outdoor shower. There is also a full guest bathroom and an office with a desk and a single bed.

All rooms have floor to ceiling windows and spectacular views. In addition, there is a small guesthouse (locally called a casita) consisting of a bedroom with a queen size bed, ma lovely sitting are for two, a full shower room and a beautiful terrace and, of course, great views. The main house and the casita each have their own EcoSmart on-demand water heating systems - ecologically very sound and you will never run out of hot water.

Outside we have a 12 meter lap pool as well as a four by seven meter play pool. The pools are set in a terrace that runs the length of the house. There is a chaise lounge area alongside the lap pool, a gas-fired BBQ and a beautiful dining area (also seating six) alongside the play pool. The high temperature is reliably around 82 F or 28 C and the low is about 60 F or 16 C. As a result, you can always eat outside, if you choose, and sleep comfortably with all the windows open.

It is a five minute drive to the center of the pretty little (5000) town of Atenas, with its incredibly warm people, several supermarkets, its Friday farmers market & many restaurants. Thirty minutes to more sophisticated dining and shopping in Escazu. One hour to the Pacific. Eco tourism and activities are literally everywhere!

If we exchange homes, we and our Costa Rican team consisting of our property managers, pool man, housekeeper and gardener (once a week for the last three) will do everything that we can to insure that your stay exceeds your expectations. I can be reached at BNL@rancholeon.com

Not available for exchange from December 15 to April 1

More about us

  1. Always interested in short London exchanges. We are an active retired couple splitting time between Costa Rica & the Southwest of France - I've forgotten the type of work we used to do, but I know we worked very hard!
  2. We have traveled quite a lot (43 countries and counting between us) and love being immersed in cultures that are new to us, particularly in the center of a city, town or village from a highly walkable location.
  3. We will treat your home with great care & do not smoke & appreciate the same in return.
