BREATHTAKING VIEW

  • 4 of 5

The breathtaking view from this property was a daily gift in our 11 night stay. Hosts were helpful and accommodating. Large rooms were comfortable, clean but decor was dated. Location was central to many destinations. The 4 of us appreciated being able to rent car from owners. Wonderful experience.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is located in the mountain near the airport. Little bit hard to find the first time, but the owner can get you at the airport. Very nice sightseeing on the central valley. The house was exactly as expected. Lots of space, clean, very safe, nice pool and furnished with all we needed. Good localisation to discover the valley.

The owners were helpful and great with us.

My family and I loved that place and we will go there if we come back to Costa Rica.

Fantastic people and country

  • 5 of 5

Frank and his fsmily were wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay there. His property was beautiful and we enjoyed having a kitchen and cooking but when we did not feel like cooking we walked the 10 minutes to several nice restaurants. They took us to the market and grocery and we had a blast. Really sweet family and a beautiful property we hope to visit again.

Frank and Rocio were great!!

  • 4 of 5

This is such an amazing property! Frank and Rocio were so accommodating! They picked us up and dropped us off and gave us a tour on the way. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars is the pool had a crack in it before we got there and Frank had to fix it so we only had the pool 2 out of the 5 days we were there. But for the days we did have it, it was incredible with a breath taking view!

We only spent one night, but Frank & his wife were very nice & helpful. The property has excellent views of the valley & the house is comfortable. Frank made getting to the airport a breeze, which we appreciated so much!
