Villa Serenidad sits on 2 acres (8,000 m2) of pristine land in the Central Valley in a small, private, gated community near the city of Atenas in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica.

Have a look in the gallery to see what's new or read more to find out why we fell in love with Villa Serenidad and why you will too. Villa Serenidad is about 18 miles (28 km) or 35 minutes from Juan Santamaría Airport (SJO). We are 1 hour away from the Pacific beaches. Most of our guests have LOVED the location. It makes for a wonderful central location to take a half or full day trip to Manuel Antonio National Park, the beach, volcanoes, zip lines and of course is fantastic as a place to just rest, relax and enjoy Costa Rica. The roads to Villa Serenidad are flat and very easy to access with any type of vehicle. A 4x4 is not required. Of course, our team is always happy to help with requests including arranging transportation to and from the airport with our trusted drivers. Continuing for 2019, we provide an 18 page welcome letter and information packet for all of our guests. This unique guide contains a wealth of information and covers most questions that arise when coming to Costa Rica for the first time including a lot of information about the villa and the area in general. Providing this info is part of our commitment to providing you with an enjoyable experience. All of our guests who have read the packet absolutely love the information provided and we’ve received a number of comments wishing all hosts would supply as much information as we do. The packet includes contact info for our team, communication and language info, address, directions and coordinates, discusses using GPS, mobile phones, the internet and Wi-Fi, house and community access, early arrival / late departure, driving and renting cars in Costa Rica, paying for goods and services in Costa Rica, climate and weather info, dry season and rainy / wet season, recommended clothes and dress, items that we supply and a suggested list of what to bring, a list of activities and excursions in our area, safety and security in Costa Rica, available outside services, shopping info, additional villa info and more. A fantastic resource! Villa Serenidad is near 3,000' (920 meters) of elevation. One of the biggest reasons we chose Atenas is because it's known as the 'world's best climate'. Quite literally, it's around 65 °F (18 °C) every night and about 82 °F (28 °C) every day, 365 days a year. It only varies a few degrees year round! It’s perfect for sleeping at night and perfect for activities during the day. We have no need for air conditioning or heat! It’s simply amazing! The pool at Villa Serenidad receives sunshine throughout most of the day and is comfortable to swim in day or night, year round. There aren’t any buildings or large trees blocking the sunshine which makes a tremendous difference in water temperature. Having previously rented a number of other houses in the area, many of them have pools that are terribly uncomfortable due to the lack of sunshine on the pool. The villa features 4 bedrooms with comfortable linens, 3 bathrooms featuring soft Turkish cotton towels, 1 outdoor shower, 2 indoor dining areas and 1 outdoor dining area along with a tremendous number of other amenities. In the very spacious kitchen with its 24' high ceiling and big center island, you feel like there is room for the whole family to cook. New for 2019, as a guest at Villa Serenidad we welcome you to use and enjoy premium RAW Botanicals Ylang Ylang Shampoo, Banana Glistening Hair Conditioner and Papaya Tangerine Body Wash provided in each shower. These ultra premium salon grade products are handmade in Costa Rica and found in high end resorts throughout the country. Pack light and enjoy these Costa Rican originals. We have designed and provided for what we believe will be a 5 star experience for you! We love Villa Serenidad and are sure you will too.More

About the neighbourhood
2 miles (3.4 km) from Atenas central and a quick 6 minute drive, Villa Serenidad is the epitome of quiet and relaxing. We're near the end of a dead end road. It's not uncommon to go a full day without hearing a car. Our closest neighbor in view from the pool or patio is over 1/4 mile away across the river gorge. Atenas, famous as the Best Climate in the World according to National Geographic Magazine is a tranquil community with fresh markets, a Friday farmers market, numerous restaurants and small shops and importantly a wonderful community of ticos and expats. Immerse yourself in the Costa Rican culture or enjoy the many establishments run by expats. Either way, the people here are fantastic!
Getting around
We prefer to have a car in Atenas but if you read around on the various forums, a number of people use taxi's, walk and or use the public transportation system.
