This is a house with lovely features in a perfect, central location situated in a low density upscale community. Low noise, green, peaceful and relaxing - but in easy distance to town - secluded privacy and ease of affairs - combined ! The house is airy, roomy and sparkling clean with a pretty garden to pick your breakfast fruits and a lovely private pool to enjoy the gentle breeze that usually comes in the mornings. More than we expected - and thank you, Piet for keeping us happy ! We only wished we could have stayed longer - will treasure fond memories and come back next year !

My family and I had a great time at Casa Mandalay. The house was located in a great spot close to town. We rented a car, but found you could get away without one. The house was clean and well equipped. Our kids loved how you could get to You Tube and Netflix on the TV! The yard is big enough to enjoy the pool and have room for the kids to run around. Also, it is very private. My only complaint would be about the 2 lounge chairs outside. Both are broken and have been sort of fixed with rope. A couple new chairs would have been best as the current ones are ready to go. The covered outdoor area was perfect. Lots of space to get out of the sun and to enjoy meals. No need to eat inside. This was our third year staying in Atenas as we love the climate, town and people. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. We would recommend Casa Mandalay and would definitely stay there again.

Great location for the casual traveller: an easy walk to all amenities and an easy drive to most of Costa Rica`s points of interest. Excellent climate in 2500 feet of altitude - no AC required as would be on the coast. A very comfortable, complete and charming house in a gated and guarded community in a low density area with pool and garden - birds, fruits and butterflies abound. The manager was helpful and responsive. This house exceeded my expectations and we have been very happy and relaxed there !

It is a nice house with a good kitchen. However it is NOT really a 3 bed/3 bath home. What was likely an office had the desk and computer replaced with a bed and dresser. That room had to use the 1/2 bath in the living area... So it is a converted 2 bedroom house with 2-1/2 bath. And the neighborhood has an excess of barking dogs - the neighbor must have at least 4 dogs who we quite vocal even late at night. And bedroom #2 has a futon rather than a real bed. And most surprising of all - not a single ceiling fan in the whole house! All they had was a box fan with a broken support leg and a tiny fan that was completely useless. The one radio/jam box did not play any radio stations so bring CD's for music. But it is very convenient to Atenas, just outside downtown.

Flipkey/Tripadvisor terminology explicitly rates 1/2 bathrooms as full bathrooms. 1 bedroom is multifunctional and can either be used as office or as bedroom or both - according to requirements. Ceiling fans on a 17 feet high ceiling are technically impossible and would estetically be an insult. The house, however, has a screened variable loofer system in all rooms - so ventilation comes natural. The radio can easily be used for local stations once the antenna is plugged in and the radio button is pressed. A respective manual is available. Owner
