Beautifully cared for home with everything you would need.

  • 5 of 5

We hiked each day and saw animals you would only see in a zoo. The privacy and quiet are what we wanted, although the hosts were there for us if we needed anything including tours. Residents in the farming community display pride in their neighbourhood. Only weakness for us was the language , which we would prepare for next time as the town of Puriscal has much to offer if communication was better on our part.

Perfect! Wonderful home and so affordable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two adult sons and I recently returned from spending a perfect week in Costa Rica at this lovely home in Puriscal. It is located high on a hill overlooking a valley with a view to the mountains on the other side. Oftentimes you are looking down upon the clouds. Sitting on the wide stone balcony just taking in the sights and sounds is such a pleasure. The house itself is immaculately clean, very spacious, nicely appointed (some furniture handmade by the owner) and with everything you could possibly need. The layout is good as the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the main living area so everyone has plenty of privacy. Puriscal has a couple of nice grocery stores so we were able to cook in the fully equipped kitchen and eat in when we so desired. We felt extremely safe as the house is in a gated, enclosed area along with the owner's home. There is a beautifully landscaped yard which is quite large affording privacy to both homes.

The owners are a very lovely Canadian couple who brought us citrus from their trees and were always quick to respond to any questions that we had.

Puriscal is very centrally located which enabled us to make many day trips. Just be advised that distances in Costa Rica are deceiving and that it takes a lot longer than you think to get places. Just leave early! I would say that a 4 wheel drive vehicle is mandatory due to some of the Costa Rican road conditions and the cost is not anymore than regular cars. Definitely inquire about insurance ahead of time. I had planned on our credit card insurance covering this but unless you have a letter verifying this from your c.c. company they will not accept. By law you must purchase third party insurance coverage which covers other vehicles as well as people. Our $80.00/week vehicle ended up costing $525.00 with full coverage but was worth the peace of mind. Perhaps better preplanning would be much more cost effective.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country with some of the nicest people anywhere. If you are looking for a lovely home at a VERY affordable price this is it!

Than you very much Ty and Cindy for a wonderful stay.

This home is definitely a secluded spot of beauty. Each morning you wake to absolutely gorgeous mountain views and the sounds of nature.

Ty and Cindy were very gracious and helpful with ensuring we were well taken care of.

With this home be prepared to be away from town. There is a bus stop about 1.5 miles away; however, you will need a 4x4 to get there. The walk there is not for the faint of heart as you are walking up mountains and must pass several unleashed dogs.

Come prepared to interact with bugs and birds.

The weather is GREAT. During the day you experience warmth (nothing uncomfortable) and very tolerable with open windows and fans. After about 1 p.m. on most days the temperature begins to drop making for cool afternoons and nights - bring a jacket or sweatshirt.

Thank you Ty and Cindy for your hospitality. Our time there will not be forgotten.

Owner's Response: We also enjoyed hosting you at our property! Walking anywhere in Costa Rica is not for the faint of heart. There are very few straight roads, and the terrain throughout Costa Rica is steep! However, the beauty of the surroundings is well worth it. It's much easier to rent a 4x4 and enjoy all the country has to offer. Dogs as a rule are not on leashes in Costa Rica. For the most part they are tranquil. You will see dogs, chickens, cows, horses, goats, etc., roaming freely throughout the country - part of the charm! You must leave the idea of North America behind you when you visit here, as life is very different in Central America.

Beautiful Casa & View

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful casa was exceeded our expectations. The view each morning was breathtaking. The mountains, the trees, the birds, the flowers and the sunset each day were breathtaking. The countryside is so peaceful and we enjoyed experiencing the culture of Puriscal. The country and farming community felt welcoming and safe.

Our hosts were so wonderful. They made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay here and their knowledge and recommendations for the area were very much appreciated.

We loved our tour to Zoo Ave that they took us on as well as to La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Both of these trips will be etched in our memory. We were so happy to have them drive us so we could relax and enjoy the scenery.

We especially enjoyed the Farmers' Market on Saturday in Puriscal and wandering through the many shops in town. Gallo Pinto at Soda Gustitos was incredible.

We would highly recommend this location if you want to relax and enjoy the countryside of Puriscal.

Perfect Location for CR Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, the location, the birds, the scenery and the peace and quiet! We purposely chose this location because we enjoy country living and privacy. We enjoyed the breathtaking views every morning while we sipped delicious locally grown coffee and watched the sunrise as the birds serenaded us. Puriscal had everything to offer to meet all our needs for shopping and we couldn't get enough of the fresh produce at the farmers' market on Saturdays. As a bonus we took advantage of the excellent dental care offered by a local dentist. The rates and the standard of care were exceptional and the money we saved paid for our trip. Our hosts were knowledgable and helpful in every way. They knew when to give us our privacy but were always available when we asked for something. We highly recommend this property.

About Ty & Cindy Kellerman

Our goal was to leave the Canadian winters behind us. Costa Rica offered all we were looking for with it's comfortable climate, excellent health care, friendly people and low cost of living.

Ty & Cindy Kellerman purchased this house in 2011

Why Ty & Cindy Kellerman chose San José

After exploring Costa Rica we discovered that the climate at this elevation suited us the best, with no need for air conditioners or heating.

Our Tico neighbours are friendly and helpful and the area is safe and peaceful.

The location is very convenient with only a 60-minute drive east to the airport and a 60-minute drive west to the Pacific Ocean. The days are warm and sunny and the evenings cool down to a comfortable temperature for sleeping.

The nearest city, Santiago De Puriscal, has everything we need to make our lives comfortable. Excellent doctors, dentists, professionals, markets, modern grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and building supplies.

What makes this house unique

The breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains, the pacific ocean, and tropical plants never gets old! Tropical birds provide beautiful songs during the day.

Puriscal is known for its abundant clean, potable water, locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables year-round, and warm, friendly people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This casa is more like a castle! Every detail in the house was incredible, the artwork, the furniture, the comfortable bed, the dishes, the professionally stocked kitchen. It was hard to leave. Not to mention the view and the climate. This location allowed to truly relax and enjoy the tropical surroundings. We spent hours taking in the mountain views and watching the birds entertain us. The Toucans were incredible and the sunsets breathtaking. This casa was immaculate and our hosts were so helpful and accommodating. Every detail was appreciated, and it's obvious our hosts spend a lot of time and effort in the design and maintenance of this home. The surrounding patios provided options of shade and sun, the countryside was so peaceful. We enjoyed the 15-minute drive into Puriscal where we could purchase everything we needed. The surrounding area was beautiful to explore. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful house to those who appreciate upper class accommodations.
