About Eugenia R
A former diplomat and employee of multinationals, I travelled the world and lived in Europe, the US, Central and South America. The property is my home, where I grew up; Alajuela is my home town, where I went to school... and also the place I went back to when I decided it was time to go back home!
Why Eugenia R chose Alajuela
My dad ("Memo") passed away a couple of years ago, and my mom, my daughter and I didnt want to sell the house --so many memories!!! so we decided to do something special in his honor! As part of our 2017 goals, we decided to give it a try and enter the homeaway world. Have to tell you that my mom is fascinated with the experience and, since I love entertaining and meeting new people and learning from new cultures... this is just perfect for us!!! I hope you get to love our home as much as we do! --I am sure my dad would have been more than happy to meet you!!

Great place, near the San Jose airport.
Eugenia was very helpful. The house was very nice, walking distance to several restaurants, and a few minute drive to the SJO airport.
Outstanding, with a wonderful host
Eugenia is an amazing host, everything went off without a hitch! We had a large group with lots of logistics and Eugenia helped with everything, was always helpful and very responsive. The condo was perfect for our family's stay and very comfortable. I highly recommend!!! Thanks again Eugenia for everything!!!!!
My wife and I, as well as my brother and his wife, had the opportunity recently to stay at Casa Memo. It was our first trip to Costa Rica. Casa Memo was used as the launching point and exit point for our vacation. The house was perfect logistically for this purpose. It is located about 2 miles from SJO airport so it provided easy access to the airport, car rental agency, banks (located 1 block away), supermarket for supplies and local restaurants for our first and last night in Costa Rica.
The house had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, secure parking for 1 car, wifi, breakfast supplies for AM (full cooking facilities even though we did not take advantage of this feature). There was a comfortable "living room" area with TV, a dining room & and a backyard patio. I would recommend a stroll (5 blocks away) to Parque Central de Alajuela, which I would characterize as the local plaza. Very scenic place to just sit and watch life go by.
Eugenia was extremely pleasant to work with. She provided prompt replies to my e-mail inquiries before our trip. At check-in she provided a tour of the house, recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood and calmed undue concerns for security (paranoia generated by pre-vacation research into Costa Rica).
When our tour of Costa Rica ended, we returned to Casa Memo the afternoon before our departure back home. The following morning, we called Eugenia to request a taxi to the airport (we returned the rental the day before). We had 2 taxis waiting for us within 10 minutes.
Overall, we could not have asked for more from Casa Memo or Eugenia!!
Thank you very much for your lovely comment! It was certainly MY pleasure to meet you and your family and I am really honored to having had the opportunity to be a small part of your experience in Costa Rica!! You were the perfect guests and I would love to see you again! Please know that you not only have a place to stay here, but also a new friend!!! PURA VIDA!!!!
Great, even though we didn't get to stay.
Unfortunately we didn't get to stay at this casa because of some cancelation in our group but Eugenia was very accommodating with our refund and didn't give us any trouble. I really appreciate that. In the future when we go to Costa Rica we will definitely use their home.
Thank you very much Amanda for your words. I hope you get the chance to visit us in the future!! Have an amazing 2017!
Located in the center of Alajuela, this is the perfect location for one-day trips to volcanoes, Zoo, lakes, coffee farms. Rental cars are nearby because of the proximity to the airport, and there is also public transportation right across the street. Fast food just block away (McDonalds, KFC, Taco Bell).. everything near you.. while you stay in a house that has beautiful gardens and the tropical feeling that only Costa RIca can offer. I will personally take care of the details so you feel welcomed.. and come back again!
