About Ingeborg Reinecke
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.
Ingeborg Reinecke purchased this House in 2005
Why Ingeborg Reinecke chose Mercedes
My house was built in 2005, is conveniently located within an 8-min. walk to the bus stop w/connection to virtually all of Costa Rica, and to Automercado within a 10-min. walk.The weather in near-by Atenas,was quoted by Nat'l Geographic second best in the world. My private backyard can be enjoyed 24/7: take in the sun, have your meals, and at night entertain your family and friends in a softly lid atmosphere.
What makes this House unique
I love the convenience: Two supermarkets up the block, Papa John's Pizza, the gated community with friendly guards. Never have to worry about the safety of my house. Restaurants are within walking distance, the bus stop within an 8-min. walk. Automercado, famous for its international foods, has a low-fee ATM. And, of course, my private sunny backyard with its newly installed soft lighting to enjoy evenings outside the house.

Great Place to Stay Near Heredia
Our experience with this casita was entirely satisfactory. We were of course concerned about the one negative review, but having lived in the house for three weeks, it is clear that those reviewers brought their problems with them. Anybody who can’t open a standard sliding window without breaking it or who can’t comply with clear posted directions to keep paper out of the toilet should not be allowed out of the house—much less out of the country—without their mother. The unit was fully-equipped (better than most of the vacation rentals that we have experienced), spacious, and comfortable. The walk into town where we were taking language classes took about 45 minutes, but we could have taken buses or taxis if we hadn’t felt like walking. A very complete, modern grocery store is nearby, with a smaller-scale convenience store on the corner. The owner of the unit was at all times very responsive and helpful. The only negative thing that we experienced is that one of the near neighbors (we are not sure which one) has a pack of small dogs who do a lot of barking, but that kind of issue is likely to come up in any attached housing community. If we return to this part of Costa Rica, we would be happy to rent this unit again.
Cozy and Beautiful House
Cozy house is fully equipped in a beautiful gated community. We enjoyed our stay there and will definitely stay there again. Centrally located...Wal-Mart is a three minute drive and lots of restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this property for families!
Its a nice house
Is a nice And beautiful house except for the sheets is old
I had just bought a top quality quality new mattress for the master bedroom - the sheets are also quite new, and I will buy new bedding for the bunks in the guest room, although it is still in quite good shape. Thanks for letting me know.
The house is nice and the community is safe. It was very cozy and enjoy using the kitcken
Awesome place to stay!!!
It is an excellent place to stay! This is my second time I have stayed at this location. My first time was in 2015, and since I liked so much, I stayed the second time around. It is kept neat and clean. The backyard has outside furniture: four chairs, and a table; a swing for two persons. The grass is green and luscious; it has papaya tree where you can have papaya fruit once is ripe.
You get enough sunshine too!
A couple of supermarkets, as well as restaurants, are near.
You have a second floor where you can relax and watch TV. You can bring your laptop to do whatever you need to do via the internet.
The router has a good wireless range power where you can get connected internet anywhere on the first floor.
Most important it is close to SJO airport.
I highly recommend this location.
We enjoyed our stay! Roomy, that extra half bath was great! As was the upstairs tv area..... Great location for local bus transportation. Will recommend to friends and family! Owner very accomodating!😀
