The development is located in the heights of Escazu where there are spectacular views of the city and countryside below. The clubhouse features an entertainment center with TV and a pool table and was designed to be completely accessible to the large pool and deck area, sauna, fully-equipped exercise facility that is positioned directly over the pool area. This unique property also features a Yoga platform located near a running water stream that is ideal for practicing Yoga and meditation. Bosques de Escazu has something for everyone as there is also a fun and safe playground area for small children. In short, this is an ideal property that comfortably accommodates individuals, couples and families/groups up to 4 persons.
I am a physician and insurance company executive who has a great passion for exploration and adventure. I first explored Costa Rica in 1999 and became enchanted with this beautiful country. I decided to purchase this property in order to have a more comfortable accommodation during my visits but also as a form of investment as I believe there is a market for this type of unique property in the travel market. I am based in Miami. Florida which is only a 2 1/2 hour flight to San Jose, Costa Rica.
Stanley S. Lynch Jr. MD purchased this condo in 2014
I specifically purchased this property because I was intrigued with the concept of a 'Eco-Residential' development. Costa Rica is a country that is very conscious or aware of the environment and Bosques de Escazu reflects this philosophy. Everything from LED lighting to water recycling and the use of sustainable materials are included in the characteristics of this property. The location is idyllic being located in the neighborhood called 'Corazon de Jesus'. For those who are interested in being close to an authentic and historic Costa Rican town, the small 'pueblo' of Escazu and its many small shops, bars, restaurants, markets and other businesses are a short distance away.
The property in ideally situated near the old town of Escazu but also very close to the modern and sprawling area of modern San Rafael de Escazu only 5 minutes away. In modern Escazu you will discover fine dining, entertainment and shopping at Multiplaza, one of the largest shopping mall developments in Latin America. From this location you can also access spectacular beaches, active volcanoes and the tropical rainforest with the most biodiversity on the planet, full of rare and exotic plants and animals, waterfalls and outdoor activities for every taste.
2nd tine in this apt, and is the perfect place to stay in san jose, nice and quiet but close to everything you need.
Our unit was new, clean, organized, safe and functional. It was well managed by the property management company. Erick was timely, friendly and prepared as were the security personnel we dealt with every day. Everything in the unit worked. It was great having an efficient washer and dryer available. We learned some of the best restaurants within the first few days. And they were GREAT!! As always, the people made the trip. Great experience.
The 1BR apartment is brand new - so it really feels like you're the first one using the appliances and bathrooms. The community is very secure and contains great amenities like a gym and pool. The only downside is that the complex is on a hill, so it's kind of out of the way from the cool areas in Escazu like Multiplaza, and many taxis / people don't know how to get there. Like many places in San Jose, you NEED a car to live here because there's no reliable nearby public transportation. Additionally, while the owner is very helpful via email, the lady who manages the property in Costa Rica is very hard to reach. Although she's very nice and sweet, I had a very difficult time communicating with her - which proved problematic and quite annoying. E.g. she didn't email me back about my arrival logistics (like where to pick up the key, exact location, when to meet) until my flight had already arrived to Costa Rica and I didn't have wifi access to see the email so I had a very difficult time finding the property with my taxi and then ended up waiting outside for her to arrive. This is just one of many examples when her "Tico" mannerisms proved extremely difficult to deal with (i.e lack of responsivenes).
My wife and I stayed here during the first week of March 2015. The condo is within a gated community, making for a safe, comfortable and quiet (by Costa Rica standards) stay. The condo itself is virtually new and well equipped for settling in, and the property includes a great combination of workout room, swimming pool and related activities. Stan is quick to respond to any inquiries or needs, as is Antonella, his Escazú representative. The condo is also conveniently located to major highways, a very large mall and typical tourist sites in this area of Costa Rica. We would stay here again.
What a gem this property was exactly like the pictures and more. Scenic area around the pool with enjoyable quiet relaxation. The condo was spacious and bright and up to date.
Stan and Antonella were very helpful with any questions we had. We hope to return again soon.
Arenal Volcano National Park is a 'must see' activity. It is an approximately 3 1/2 hour drive from Bosques de Escazu.
