About Kim y David Quiros - own, manage and live at the property

David was born and raised just outside the capital here in San Jose, Costa Rica, and spent half of his life as a New Yorker as well. Kim was a New Yorker for most of her life, save a few fun-filled years at the beach in Ocean City, MD. After looking for 10 years for the perfect place to live and raise their children, they stumbled upon San Ramon in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Beautiful weather, stunning views, tico lifestyle but with all the amenities close by, it was the perfect place. And Vista Valverde the perfect business to run from home, gorgeous guest houses, and just the right Pura Vida. With their backgrounds in everything from hospitality to real estate, legal professions to construction, they also run San Ramon's premier real estate company, Paradise Management Realty, to help other folks who want to stay in this wonderful part of the Central Valley! So if you decide you love San Ramon as much as they do, let them help you stay!

Why Kim y David Quiros - own, manage and live at the property chose San Ramon

Just the sense of Peace is endless. Views, space, privacy, comfort, everyone who comes here, no matter their age, leaves feeling refreshed and relaxed. The weather is perfect year round, 75-85 degrees by day, 60s by night. And we are so close to wonderful town of San Ramon, we feel we have it all. And we can host so many different events from weddings (the backdrop is gorgeous) to family reunions and yoga retreats - come enjoy all that there is to do within 1-2 hours drive, or sit and do nothing at all. Your choice, your pura vida.

What makes this guest house unique

Everything is within driving distance. Arenal is 1.5 hours and so is Monteverde Cloud Forest - or just visit our own Nectandra cloud Forest about 35 minutes down the road. The lovely and fun beach of Dona Ana is less than an hour, or head to the ferry to the North Pacific beaches in an hour. Even the airport is less than an hour's drive, though you would never believe it. If you just want to plop your things down, take days trips or even an overnight here and there - leave your computers and iPads and things in a safe place (all houses have alarm systems), you can do that here. There is something for everyone year round, and special events are only more beautiful with our Pacific Ocean backdrop. Christmas is the whole month of December in Costa Rica, and joyous in the nearby town along with the famous year round open market on the Fridays and Saturdays. Festivals of Palmares and San Ramon are minutes away - check our website calendar for local events. We have in-room massages, yoga instruction upon request, even our own tours if you want to sit back and let us do the driving. Our weather can't be beat and there is no need for a/c or heat - just some big fluffy comforters at night. Come see why so many folks from Brazil to Canada now call this area of Costa Rica their Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family stayed here for a couple of nights on our way back to San jose from a couple of weeks at the beach. We loved the 2 bedroom cabin. The kids had theirownbedroo with single beds and a bathroom and we had our own room and bathroom. The cabin was modern and comfortable. The views were spectacular. Kim and David welcomed us into their home and the kids got to play all over the property and on the trampoline. We had a great time. Thanks.

Gorgeous Nicoya Gulf & Pacific Ocean Views from Modern 1BR Casita
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Wonderfully relaxing spot with an awesome view yet close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Vista Valverde is a gorgeous spot with views all the way to the ocean! Our cabin was lovely and a wonderful place to relax. It is only a short trip into the town of San Ramon, making it the perfect location for sightseeing or for house hunting for longer rentals. Kim and David are great hosts, very friendly and helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. Kim cooked us breakfast in the morning and it was delicious! We look forward to being back in the area soon.

Car: recommended

We are in the center of so many wonderful attractions, volcanos, beaches, forests and mountains. Even our local cloud forests are only 15 - 45 minutes away. Take your adventures without being in the touristy and high traffic areas - Our guests use us as a home base and day trip and even overnight trip (we have alarms on each of our buildngs and somone is ALWAYS watching over the property). We are up a private road, away from it all, overlooking the Pacific, yet just minutes form the large town of San Ramon central.
