Recent San Jose property reviews

  • Great location and helpful host made our relocation to Costa Rica a joy.

    "My husband and I relocated to Costa Rica for his job in July. We rented the penthouse apartment for the first month we were here to give us time to find a place to live, buy a car, and get to know the Central Valley better. The house is located in a neighborhood that is very convenient to the city center and all the tourist destinations, like the Teatro Nacional and the Gold Museum and the Jade Museum. There are a handful of good restaurants within walking distance, though most days I walked to the grocery store and bought food to cook for our meals. Don Tomas was incredibly generous with his time, making sure we had what we needed. He helped us find parking when we bought our car, introduced us to some of his friends who had a rental home available and they are now our landlords, and he even offered to walk with me to a local furniture store and introduce me to the woman from whom he buys furniture for his homes. We ended up buying our bedroom set and living room furniture from her a couple weeks later. Not only did we have a comfortable stay during our international move, which can be a hectic time, but we also made a dear friend. Last details: Romeo, Don Tomas' trusted taxi driver, is a gem. We still call him now and then when we need a ride to the airport or somewhere else I don't want to drive. He helps me with my Spanish and with learning different routes around the city. Socorro, Don Tomas' housekeeper, is a very friendly lady and keeps the place absolutely spic and span. We enjoyed our time in Barrio Otoya very much and would recommend the penthouse apartment to anyone interested in spending some time in San Jose."

  • Quite possibly the most beautiful setting I have ever seen

    "We had such an amazing stay at this quaint lodge in the cloud forest. The setting is incredible with a beautiful crystal clear river just in front of the home, and a cascading waterfall creek directly to the side. I don't think there are many places like this left on the planet that are not in National Parks. The lodge is comfortable with a beautiful floor to ceiling fireplace that knocks the chill out of the air on the cool nights. The days are absolutely perfect with temperatures around 75 degrees F. There are so many amazing birds around the place, and we saw the magnificent Quetzal on 3 separate occasions. There are some great restaurants in the area ranging from $3-4 dollars a meal, all the way up to $20 at the nice eco-lodges down the road. There is an amazing waterfall just above the property if you follow the creek trail for about half a mile. There are no mosquitoes at all, so I am assuming the previous review is in regard to another property, as we found out that no ants, mosquitoes, or snakes live at this high of an elevation. It is over 7500 feet up in the mountains. This is one place that everyone should add to their "bucket list" as it is probably the most beautiful place we have ever visited!"

  • Fantastic condo, fantastic service

    "My family of five (two adults, three teenagers) stayed in this condo managed by Paolo & Sara Wright. The condo is exactly as presented on the site and very, very well equipped. We had all the supplies we needed and all questions answered within minutes of phone or email contact. Paolo & Sara went above and beyond to help us get setup with great activities, including river rafting, a coffee tour and a trip to the La Paz waterfall gardens. Paolo also sent us to a fantastic little wood factory where they hand-make all the beautiful Costa Rican wood jewelry, place mats, wood chimes, etc. that you will find at souvenier shops throughout the country--and for much, much cheaper. We loved seeing how things were made and talking with the staff who make the products. The grounds of the complex are beautiful, the pool tranquil and the tennis courts just a short walk. Paolo provided directions anywhere we needed, and he even set us up with some DVDs for late evenings in. We had a great stay just outside San Jose easily accessing the amazing activities in the area. We also had a great time cooking some meals in because the kitchen and house have everything we needed. Lastly, we had great instructions on everything related to the condo because of a well-organized binder (this is not the case with some home-stay rentals). Thanks so much to Paolo & Sara for a great stay. We definitely will recommend this apartment to anyone--for so many reasons!"

  • Great location and very helpful management!

    "Perfect place to begin or end a trip to Costa Rica. It is in an upscale neighborhood at the top of the hill. You can't beat the view of the city below. The rooms are clean and quiet with a minibar and TV. There is a pool with a waterfall, outdoor bar and sitting area, exercise equipment and sauna. This would be the perfect place for a group gathering or just a romantic hideaway. Peter and Marco went out of their way to make us feel at home and were always on hand to advise us. It is between the airport and the city and very close to the domestic Pavos airport. Great place to stay!"
