Absolutely beautiful property with stunning views and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to stay at this property because it was near SJO and looked like it could accommodate us well! We were looking forward to using the beautiful pool, the weather was just a tad chilly. Overall, this property is great! The views are amazing and the plant life is spectacular. Frank has taken great care in making this place a total tropical oasis. I wish we could have stayed longer! We had plenty of privacy and room. The house is just a short walk from three different restaurants and is in a really safe area. I felt very secure staying here and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We booked 30 days in Loma tranquila ( between trips to several spots in Costa Rica). The weather in the valley is truly much better than the Caribbean coast (lots of rain when we went there). Loma tranquila is a great place for you to relax (don't expect night life or noises here). The New years eve fireworks here were amazing (you have a great view from the valley and San Jose). Every morning we woke up to the sounds of beautiful yellow birds ;) You will need a car though to go to supermarket etc (like anywhere in Costa Rica: a car is a must). Frank and Rocio are very helpful and friendly. They provided our transportation from and to the airport at no charge! We enjoyed our time there. There is a very nice coffee plantation 5 minutes from Loma tranquila (free tour). Great coffee shop as well.. We recommend Loma tranquila to our friends. Thank you Frank and Rocio!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Frank was a great host and the accommodations were just what we needed. He gave us suggestions for dining and tours in the area. His wife would have cooked for us but we didn't bother her since their baby was ill. We would definitely return.

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.
