The Residence and Neighborhood:

Bed and Breakfast for short term guests or longer term with kitchen privileges. This beautiful home is in an upscale, safe neighborhood of Trejos Montealegre, Escazu (about 8 km, 15 minute bus ride from downtown San Jose) has 4 rooms to meet different budgets and needs regarding time. Stay for 2 days, or 2 months, perhaps longer.

There are restaurants in the immediate neighborhood, movies, shopping center, medical/dental offices, hospital, Spanish lessons, grocery stores all within a short taxi ride or not much longer if you are a walker.

The GARDEN Room is small, but cute, with a private bath, our most economical, all the amenities on a cozy scale. Door opens into the garden. There is Internet in the room and at a covered table just outside for gathering or working with Internet. Guests have been offered larger rooms but have chosen this one! This room is appropriate for only one person, two if you are very friendly with a TWIN BED. (A double mattress could also be provided if desired).

The DELIGHT room is a comfortable 13 ft X 13 ft room with a private bath and a QUEEN BED. Sleeps two comfortably.

The MTN VIEW room is an even larger room than the DELIGHT with a shared bath and a QUEEN BED and TWIN BED. It is a "favorite" of many guests because it has a view of the lovely Escazu hills and is sunny and pleasant all year 'round. The one other person who shares the bathroom is usually out and on her way by 6:30 AM so it is almost like having your own bathroom.


The GRAND room is a huge room with jacuzzi (see photo)
It has a QUEEN BED and a SOFA or TWIN BED. Sleeps 3 comfortably with space to put more mattresses on the floor for friendly folks.

Weekly and monthly rates available. Guests are welcome for medical/dental tourism, internships, transition times, relocation exploration, international telecommuting or ???

Have you ever had an amazing vacation in a foreign country only to come home to a US$500 cell phone bill? You only checked a few emails, used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, and uploaded pictures to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to make your friends jealous, so how could it cost that much?

I've been a victim to these outrageous roaming fees which has lead me to either leave my phone in airplane mode or buy a local prepaid SIM card in the country I am visiting, neither of which is ideal.

Beginning on Oct. 20th, the U.S. cellular company T-Mobile is changing the game in international travel by getting rid of international roaming fees. That's right, U.S. T-Mobile users will now be able to roam the world with their current cell phone and number at no extra cost.

The service will be available in countries including Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy, China, and 200 other countries. It allows unlimited data usage and texting, with phone calls at a rate of 20 cents per minute. The service automatically connects to the local service in the new country and requires nothing for the user to do.

T-Mobile's new plan is perfect for the frequent and infrequent traveler that wants to always be connected while they are away. Picture being able to hop from country to country in Europe, use all of your data, apps, maps, and email, and not be penalized for it. The savings and convenience are extraordinary.

T-Mobile is currently the only cell phone provider in the United States offering an international cell phone service like this. It's great they are the first to recognize that we live in a global world where people want to be connected no matter where they are. It will also be interesting to see whether the larger carriers like Verizon and AT&T eventually jump on board.

Staying at Lisa's was very comfortable. My sister is currently a little ill and it helped her a lot staying in Lisa's home because There is a lady whose name is Janice, she does Chromotherapy. The therapy helped pain in her abdomen go down very much. Also there is a great restaurant across the street that is to die for. Not only Is her food out of this world, but If you have something bothering you the chef will cook something for that particular issue. The chef cooks such a variety of dishes with so many delicous spices, it's amazing..... also, Her mint ice cream is PURA VIDA! Also there's a coffee shop finca walking distance that is family owned, been in business for many years. If you're a book junkie you'll find a great variety of subjects to read about as well at Lisa's. Thank you Lisa. :)

Liza and her beautiful house are an exemplary AirBnB experience, top notch! From attentive coordination and welcoming, comfortable rooms, great internet connectivity, yummy breakfast, knowledgeable advice for errands and day trips, and wonderful service partners (Meals at Cocina Eclectica 3 doors down are amazing, and Carlos provides great car service to and from the airport), it's all there. All in all, Liza's BnB is as good as it gets.

While I was looking for a location walking distance from dental appointments, I was profoundly grateful for Liza's beautiful home and gracious support. Liza 's went above and beyond during the convalescence from surgery. She provided a lovely, beautiful space for healing, multiple ice packs to treat swelling, and negotiated all transportation to and from the airport. As an example of her caring, while convalescing from surgery I realized the pharmacy had made a mistake in filling a prescription. She went to the pharmacy herself to inform them of the problem and remedy the situation. I am so grateful for her kindness.

Escazu, Costa RicaJoined in June 2011
Liza User ProfileLiza is a superhost.

I have had many adventures (with what seems to be endless travel along with life experiences) and these adventures continue in Costa Rica. I had a guest house in San Francisco and I would love to welcome you to my home here in Escazu, Costa Rica for a short or longer stay. This home was picked and decorated with YOU in mind!

Since arriving in Costa Rica in 2002, I have been a teacher specializing in English for Specific Purposes and English for Business Purposes which is very interesting because I get to learn a lot about all kinds of fields. Some of my students, along the way, have come from banking, nutrition, medicine, finance, small business, diplomacy, etc. I had an interesting time getting two Master's of Education simultaneously, one from the University of Costa Rica and one from Framingham State College.

In 2010, I taught at EARTH University in Guacimo Costa Rica where they teach sustainable farming, so this city girl learned a lot about farming and I have gotten very interested in issues around farming and other matters about sustainability.

I have also been a massage therapist for nearly 23 years, something I am very passionate about.

Since June 2011, this very interesting house has had people who have come from India, Pakistan, France, England, Poland, Serbia, Russia, Switzerland, England. Germany, Reunion, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S., and others. We just never know who might show up! Sometimes we have eight countries represented at the table, and yet, often there are unexpected and interesting connections. It is a house filled with blessings!

I hope you will join us and continue the adventure!
