Alajuela house description

This beautiful house is just 15 minutes drive from the San Jose International Airport (SJO), the main airport. It is located in a nice quiet neighborhood, a short drive from downtown Alajuela a charming town where you can find all the amenities of a city such as shopping, theatres, restaurants and plenty of cultural life. If you don't have a car, the easiest transportation from the house is the bus system to downtown Alajuela. The bus stops just 10 meters from the house. You can enjoy downtown Alajuela or go anywhere in the country by bus or taxi. The location is ideal as a central point to make day-trips to volcanoes, mountains and the beach. NO four-wheel drive car required, the roads are perfectly well paved.

The house’s location is known for having the BEST climate in the world, the temperature is perfect all year-round. The Central Valley, where the main cities are, is surrounded by mountains, which give the area a perfect breeze and a great amount of sunlight, you will feel like in paradise.

The house has Spanish ceramic tile throughout and has plenty of living space, the patio has ceramic tile and a nice garden with sculptures.

It has two nice cozy bedrooms and one large bathroom, which accommodates four people. The house has very large windows which allow for lots of natural light.

The location is a central point for day-trips to volcanoes, mountains and the beach. A must day-trip is to the beautiful active Poas Volcano and National Park located 25 Km from the house. This Volcano has an amazing 1.6 Km diameter crater and its lake Botos is located 1 Km from the crater, the vegetation is unique and truly exotic.

Another recommended day-trip is to Jaco Beach, Herradura beach or Dona Ana beach in the Pacific Coast located 88 Km West from the house. The road is well paved and suitable for traveling in Summer or Green seasons. Jaco is famous for its amazing waves...

For a taste of typical Costa Rican food there are several restaurants in the area. We recommend 'La Garita' town a 10 minute drive from the house, we recommend the restaurant 'Las Delicias del Maiz' or 'La Fiesta del Maiz'. Once there, visit the Zoo-Ave to experience a variety of tropical birds and wildlife and the Butterfly Farm in the same area. For more restaurants, shopping and all services visit downtown Alajuela only 20 minutes from the house. For a taste of the finest Costa Rican art crafts visit Sarchi, a town located 25 minutes from the house. You will enjoy the drive through sugar cane and coffee plantations.

Costa Rica has plenty of public transportation to anywhere in the country. It is a small country where you can go from volcanoes to beaches on a day trip.

You will go home knowing the meaning of 'Pura Vida'!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About the owner: My family purchased the land and built the house and have been keeping up with remodeling and maintaining the house in perfect shape.

              Why the Owner Chose Alajuela:
              The house has been expanded o add more living space to make it more charming for a feeling of a vacation house. We wanted to built it the Costa Rican way: hardwood ceilings, ceramic tile floors, patios, lots of light... It is really perfect to vacation!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The best part of staying at this house is the central location in the country which allow us to day-trips to anywhere from volcanos and mountains to the beach and come back to a nice quiet and charming place. We mostly enjoy the tranquility of the area and how neat and fresh the house is. We enjoy walking along the street and seeing coffee and sugar cane plantations and the nice neighborhood. Most neighbors are farmers who grow cattle, chicken, coffee, fruits and vegetables. A short 100 meters walk from the house will take you to a typical Costa Rican 'pulperia' or little grocery store where you can get freshly baked bread every morning and the basic groceries.
