"I rented the upper Penthouse from Jan. 26/16 to Feb. 24/16 and used it as a central base to explore some of Costa Rica. It is a beautiful home owned by a truly wonderful and caring man who is affectionately known to me and my family as simply "Tomas". A gentleman, full of information and willing to share. The apt is as described and met all the needs of my family. We arrived at 9.00 p.m. in the evening and were met at the airport by Rolando (one of Tomas' drivers) and driven to the penthouse. This is an important benefit as I would not have been able to find Tomas' residence. Socorro kept the apt spotless, a very friendly, quiet lady. I wish I could have spoken some Spanish that would have enabled me to be able to converse with her about her life and homeland. Romero, Tomas' trusted friend and chauffeur for a number of years, drove us back to airport on departure , another proud Costa Rican and a gentleman. My family enjoyed the tours which were undertaken by Rolando and one of his drivers, Jimmy, who became our chauffeur, tour guide, interpreter and sometimes chef but most importantly of all our friend. Personally myself I loved all of Costa Rica but I also enjoyed exploring downtown San Jose, a half hour walk from the penthouse. And the patio at the end of the day, a quiet, beautiful spot to relax and share. My only regret is not getting out to Tomas' beachfront properties---maybe next winter, Tomas?"
