                                  I require a rental agreement to be signed by primary renter. The agreement is in Spanish, and I supply an English translation, if needed.

                                  Please advise me of your approximate arrival and departure time so I can arrange with my manager a greeting and handing over the keys.

                                  I require a $125.00 deposit to reserve the house. Upon receipt (certified bank check, money order or PayPal) the house is reserved for you. The deposit will be refunded after checkout and inspection by my manager. In case of cancellation up to 2 weeks before planned arrival date I refund 50%, after that it is non-refundable.

                                  Payment of the rent is due shortly before checking in (same as above).

                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About: Hi there, I was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, emigrated to New York, and that's where I live. I like Costa Rica and use my house for frequent visits.

                                  Why Heredia:
                                  My house, which was built in 2005, is conveniently located. Bus connection to virtually all of Costa Rica is available within a few minute-walk. The weather in Atenas, a 20-minute drive west, was quoted by National Geographic the second best in the world.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  I love the convenience, an upscale supermarket up the block, the gated community with friendly guards. Never have to worry about the safety of my house.
