Guestbook comments from the owner

We were blessed to find this vacation rental for our stay in Costa Rica! We stayed for 10 days. The home is conveniently located close to the airport. We had great communication with the home owner, Karolina, via email/phone and also with the house manager, Priscila. We were able to reach Priscila via phone/email/text/in person and she responded promptly. She is very pleasant, responsive, and caring. She drew us a map when we needed directions. The house manual was an excellent tool! It had all the information we needed. We printed a few copies before leaving the States and referenced it often. The house is very clean and well maintained. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. Many people went out for runs or walks in the mornings and afternoons. The internet speed was excellent and several of us were able to use it at the same time on our different devices. We had a problem with the washing machine and Priscila came as soon as we got in touch with her and had it fixed. All the appliances worked excellent (there's even a hair dryer). Staying at this vacation rental was so much better that staying at a hotel! Our family of 6 adults was very comfortable at the house. We highly recommend others staying here and we would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 week stay here last summer. We felt very safe and comfortable. The home has 4 nice sized bedrooms, a nice covered and uncovered patios, great living areas and kitchen. We loved the central location. It was easy to get to places around the central valley. We could still go on short side trips to tourist spots, the beach, La Paz Waterfalls, but come home and prepare our own food and have comfortable space to relax. My favorite part about this house is that it is in a gated community, so there are several parks you can walk to in the neighborhood. This was perfect for going on walk with my kids. It felt very safe and neighbors were friendly. Karolina was easy to work with as well and helped answer all our questions quickly. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! We are a family of 5 + my parents. Our kids range in age from 13-20. The place was spacious & comfortable enough for all. My parents felt right at home & were so happy to have such a comfortable place to stay. Karolina was great from the moment we asked about the house until the very end. She went above & beyond any other vacation rental experience we have had. She answered any & all questions we had, helped us find a driver & transportation (which was a Godsend!), listed places for us to visit, had her property manger meet us when we arrived & when we left. The location was close to the airport & also reasonable drives to many sights. Definitely stay here if going to San Jose, Costa Rica. Also definitely ask about Johnny as a driver. This trip would not have been anywhere near as enjoyable without him. He was reliable, trustworthy, honest, & very helpful.
