I have just spent the past 6 months in this gorgeous apartment and I absolutely loved every minute of it! I don't even know where to start! ---- The Location: Just perfect! Close to Paseo Colon, Escazu, Rohrmoser, Parque La Sabana, Rent-a-Car agencies, Walmart, you name it... A short Uber ride for less than $5 will get you pretty much anywhere you need to go. ---- The Building: Clean, well equipped, secure, with great amenities, like a pool, roof deck and a gym, trash chute, 2 elevators, big garage and even courtesy shopping carts to help you bring your groceries up from the car. ---- The Staff: Courteous, professional (yet laid back in true pura vida style), ever-helpful and vigilant. ---- The Apartment: Spacious, well-equipped, modern, with great Internet (if you need to work from your place like I did), filled with a lot of light in all rooms (floor to ceiling windows), and having a stunning view of the green belt around the small river running in the close proximity of the building. It's like being 5 minutes from downtown and still having peace and quiet (birds chirping, river flowing, green everywhere). I really cannot say whether I love the day view or the night view better, as they are both equally breathtaking. The walls have good insulation, so I couldn't really hear my neighbors, the appliances are all functioning well and the whole space really felt like home, during the 6 months I lived there. My warmest recommendation to anyone, short or long term. ---- The Owners: Simply amazing! They have been there for me every step of the way, before and during my stay. There was no email or text that went unanswered for longer than couple of hours, and I would be on my way immediately after that. James and Hazel are awesome hosts and I even had the opportunity to meet with Hazel in person, when she came to check something in the apartment, prior to clearing it with me and making sure I am free to see her. ---- If you are looking for a cool and safe place to stay while in Costa Rica, definitely consider this place, as I would personally give it 10 stars if I could! PURA VIDA! :D

The place is beautiful, guards and concierge (building manager) were very helpful and professional. We were very strategically located to avoid traffic from the two bridge projects under construction in Alajuela and Heredia. Wifi is fast and reliable. Appliances worked well and are newer. Master bed was comfortable!! The neighborhood is very quiet at night with very minimal city noise - I'm a very light sleeper and it didn't bother me once! The view is truly spectacular day or night for San Jose!! We used to rooftop and ground play areas for toddler daily, and walked to corner market daily as well. Very convenient location. Other: We used uber for taxis and the corner restaurant Fernellys and app QueComemos for food delivery. We shopped mostly at AutoMercado in Rohmoser/Pavas which is about $3-4 each way. Also US Embassy is $3-4 each way. Downtown San Jose is about the same. Bus stop is about 4 blocks away. Tip: Get check in instructions before arrival. We didn't get wifi instructions timely and there are no printed instructions on site. Also, you have to bring your own gym towel and pool towel as there are none in condo.

We just spent 3 weeks in James’ place and it was absolutely great! The apartment complex is quite luxurious, with top-of-the line amenities like gym, BBQ area, underground parking and rooftop terrace. All the folks that work in the condo, from security guards to receptionist and administrative staff, were extremely friendly and really strived to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The apartment itself couldn´t be better – 2 bedrooms each with a double bed and a stunning view of a river basin, downtown San Jose and the mountains surrounding the Central Valley. The master suite has a walk-in closet and a very comfortable en-suite bathroom. There’s a very similar second bathroom right next to the other bedroom as well. The kitchen is also top-notch, with high-end appliances and very well equipped with all you need to even host a dinner party or have friends over. Loved the open concept as the kitchen opens to the dining table and living room, and of course the gorgeous views of the city and the Valley. The washer and dryer are a big plus when staying for long periods, and they worked like a charm. The apartment has a balcony with a couple of rocking chairs which was probably my favorite feature! The condo is located less than 5 minutes of a junction between Route 1 and the Circunvalacion Route, quite convenient when planning your commute or trips. James and his brother-in-law Luis are extremely helpful hosts and made sure all our needs were covered promptly. Can’t wait to return to Costa Rica and spend some more time on James’ place!

James made us feel extremely comfortable. We rented his beautiful condo for 6 months. There is so much to love about renting here. Some of our favorites were, the view. The view during the day is of a wild jungle area with a small river below with eagles, parrots and toucans, beyond that is the city of San Jose, and beyond that are the gorgeous mountains and Irazu Volcano. The view at night with the city lights is nothing less than spectacular. Plus all windows appear double paned (quiet) and are floor to ceiling. Nice. Bathrooms are large, classy and have rain showers. The exercise room, pool and jacuzzi. I am retired so I could use the facilities during the day. It was like I had my own private facilities. All in great condition. The entertainment areas were plenty and beautiful. One area across from gym with great flat screen tv and nice furniture, another with big dance area and huge grill and seating area, 2 more roof top entertainment areas with real grassy areas with views of numerous volcanoes and the entire Central Valley. Fireworks displays from up here are incredible. The security is serious. Entire property concrete walled, guarded access gate, guarded underground parking, guarded building access, key card access to building at night. Never felt threatened. One of the better neighborhoods (near Barcelo San Jose Palacio Hotel - 5 stars) too. The staff are very helpful and friendly (everyone). The residents are friendly (several famous tv personalities and models live here because it is the best building in San Jose). This condo is in a quiet area but only 10 minutes from central San Jose. 5 to 10 walk to bus stop. Buses and taxes are very inexpensive in Costa Rica. Would I recommend James' place for a stay in San Jose? IN A HEARTBEAT!

As you can see in the pictures, the apartment and all its equipment is brand new and really luxurious. James (the owner who lives in the US) and Luis (his brother in law who lives in CR) did everything possible to make this stay just perfect. For example, they even equipped the second bedroom with a real bed which was so nice of them to do. Also Luis welcomed us and asked several times if everything was allright during our stay. The apartment itself comes fully equipped with a breathtaking view over San Jose (as it's on the 13th floor) which is especially nice in the night time. You can easily stay in that apartment with 3 people if 2 sleep in one bed as it is so spacious and comes with two bathrooms. The complex is really save because of the security guards at the entrance gate. But then in that area you don't really need to worry about those things.Within the complex there is a small gym, a pool area, BBQ area and a huge rooftop terrace. Every corner of the complex is neat and clean and the receptionists will help you with every concern. Even though the apartment is not situated in central San Jose (which is not very nice anyway) the connection is perfect because of the nearby autopista. We've had an amazing time in San Jose in that apartment which felt like home. It was hard to leave all this behind!! Thank you so much, James and Luis, for making this possible!

I lived in the apartment for 2 months and it was really great!! The facilities of the apartment could not be any better (laundry, icemaker, nice kitchen etc). Same with the facilities of the whole complex (pool, gym, barbecue area, chill are on the roof, 24 hour security...) James is such a friendly host. If there are any problems, he replies fast and is very helpful in all issues. My stay could not be any better!

My wife and I bought this apartment for ourselves, but will continue living in the U.S. for a little longer. So we decided to rent out our lovely new place to some very lucky people.
