Marian and Aad Veltman – Chin A Kwie always wanted to live somewhere in the tropics but didn’t know where. In February 2007 they came to Costa Rica for a vacation. Marian and Aad immediately loved the country, the climate and the people. After vacationing for two weeks in Costa Rica, they bought their home in Atenas. On Jan 1st 2008, they realized their dream and moved to Costa Rica permanently.
Many of those who retire in Atenas are snowbirds and are living only part of the year in Costa Rica, which is why you should look at Atenas property for sale in any of the gated communities Atenas real estate has to offer: Roca Verde, Lomas de Paraiso, Hacienda Atenas, Pica Flora and just outside Atenas you will find Vista del Mar. All these communities offer very nice homes built to North American standards, good quality internal roads and beautiful views. If you prefer privacy over security, we also have many stunning homes for sale that are not located in a community.
Most Atenas homes are one story homes; we also call them ranch homes in Atenas. These homes mostly offer an open floor plan with beautiful cedar wood kitchen cabinetry. Most also offer a spacious terrace to magnificent views as well as a beautiful pool. These are designed for those interested in outdoor living because the best climate in the world offers that opportunity, the reason why so many ex-pats retire in Atenas. Because of visiting family and friends, many of the homes also have a guest house or casita.
