Bright, safe and modern apartment 25 min from downtown San José, 18 min from the airport and 1 hour from the beach.
Everything you could need to call it home, including fully equipped kitchen, WI-FI, washer/dryer and your own bathroom.

The Space

Your strategic base to discover Costa Rica. Away from the crowded, traffic-packed streets of downtown San José, yet a 25 minute bus ride away to the city centre. Get off the plane and a cab will get you here in 18 min. Drive 1 hour and 15 min and you will be at the beach (Jacó).
This is a gated community so you'll be safe, and the weather on this area is particularly sunny. There's buses to San José every 30 min, and if you rent a car there's direct access to the highway to go to the beach and the rainforest.
The room has a queen bed for 2 but there's possibility of hosting a third traveler on a couch in the studio (for an extra amount)
Shared spaces include the living room where you can watch some TV and a terrace with a nice view. We have tons of books if you like to read.
We're happy to provide you with breakfast; you can normally chose from fruit, yogurt, cereals, toasts and tea or organic coffee (one of the best you'll ever try, guaranteed ;)

Guest Access

You will have your own bathroom with shower and we welcome everybody to user our fully equipped kitchen (even more so if we can cook something new together). You can also use our washer and dryer and of course you'll have high speed internet over Wi-Fi
There's a pool to enjoy the great weather and take some sun, as well as tennis and basketball courts.

Interaction with Guests

We're an international couple who loves to travel and meet people. I'm Costa Rican and Angélique is French and before calling CR home, each of us lived in places as New York, West Palm Beach, Rotterdam, Beijing, Switzerland. Fond with adventuring we have visited many countries, from Sweden and Germany, to Italy and Spain with Cuba in between.
You can call our apartment your home away from home; to us it's also about sharing a bit of our culture, spending a good time and learning a thing or two in the process. We can definitely point you in the right direction for any type of travelling plans your might have, from the budget minded backpacker to the all-out adventurer and everything in between.

The Neighborhood

Gated community with lots of space for jogging, a lake with ducks, basketball and tennis courts

  • I had a wonderful time, Randall Is an excellent host, and very helpful when it came
    to locating places for me to go, his home is very comfortable and clean. and will
    recommend my friends to him, he made me feel at home, I even met his parents
    very nice people. I got around Costa Rica very well because of him, he was always
    ready to help. was only there for 2 1/2 days. the apartment is very close to the bus
    stop that takes you to San Jose, that was neat because I got the opportunity to meet a lot of people. the weather was beautiful, and I have the opportunity to go
    back to Costa Rica, I will love to stay in his place again. I will recommend Randall any time someone ask me about my trip. The apartment has security and very safe to stay. Thanks again and hope to see you very soon.

  • Randall and Angelique were very welcoming. We had a great, albeit brief stay at their place. We were looking for a romantic spot I remembered had a fantastic view of the city, and Randall picked the one nicely - Tiquicia. Thanks much. Slept like babies that evening, as the bed was warm and cozy. They are wonderful hosts who we highly recommend.

We are an international couple (French / Costarrican) who loves to travel, share ideas and getting to know new people. We have lived in the New York, West Palm Beach, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, China and of course, Costa Rica. We often spend time watching (independent) films and we both love photography. I'm into entrepreneurship and Angélique is into consulting and we like totally different things when it comes to food. We're easy going and believe in paying it forward; we've experienced people's kindness in our travels around the world and like to do the same for our hosts.
