Welcome to our home!!!
We have one spare bedroom in our home and we would love to host you!
The room is secluded from the rest of the house (as you can see in the pictures, there is a door that separates this section from the common areas) giving you lots of privacy.
The room has a twin size bed, cable TV, and plenty of closet space.
You will also have a bathroom right next to your room with a shower and hot water.
You are also welcome to enjoy the common areas in our house. We have a large living room and kitchen. We also have an outdoor terrace that overlooks a lush tropical garden.
Our home is in Montelimar. This is an awesome location because you will be less than 2 miles from the center of San Jose. However, it is also a very quiet and safe residential area.
There is a supermarket 250 meters (820 feet) from our home and there is also access to 5 different bus lines going to San Jose, San Pedro, Moravia, Guadalupe and Heredia.

Interaction with Guests
My parent's and I live here but we are rarely at home since we all work full time.
We are very open and friendly and we will be happy to assist you with your travel plans. We have lots of experience with tourists and students visiting Costa Rica, so we can help you make the best of your trip.
We have had exchange students from Europe and the USA through programs such as International Studies Abroad (ISA) and American Field Service (AFS), and now we have joined the wonderful Airbnb community. We are Airbnbers ourselves and we firmly believe that this is a great company for both travelers and hosts.
Montelimar is a QUIET suburban neighborhood that is minutes away from Downtown San Jose and San Pedro. This is a SMALL and FRIENDLY community where you will discover what a TRADITIONAL Costa Rican neighborhood is like, while enjoying all the amenities of CITY life.
NEARBY you will find supermarkets, hair salons, a track and soccer field, and fitness centers.
HALF A MILE away (800 meters), you will find Guadalupe's Courthouse and many restaurants, bars, cafeterias, copy centers, convenience stores, a gas station, and the Clinica Catolica hospital.
1.2 MILES AWAY (2km) you will find one of San Jose's newest and largest shopping malls (website hidden) [starbucks, restaurants, cinemas, shopping, etc.]
On Saturdays, there is a farmers market in Guadalupe. Here you will find fresh produce from all over the country. This is a traditional fair and many Costa Ricans spend their Saturday morning shopping and enjoying typical food and beverages.
There are 5 bus lines that connect our home to Guadalupe (downtown), San Pedro, San Jose, Heredia, and Moravia.
If you want to rent a car we have free parking,
Taxis are also an inexpensive way of getting around. You can get downtown for only 5 or 6 dollars.
If your schedule coincides with ours, we can give you free rides to San Jose or San Pedro.
You will be given a house manual upon your arrival.
There is not cleaning fee so please clean up after yourself.
Elsi and her husband were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable in their home. The room is small as shown on the photos and filled with a very comfy double bed. We spent much of our time out in the beautiful garden which is a great area for eating meals, working or reading.
While initially difficult to find, the location is very convenient. There is a large supermarket two blocks away, a scattering of restaurants in the vicinity, and frequent buses into the centre of San Jose (20 mins).
I would highly recommend this room to anyone looking to spend time in San Jose.
The reservation was canceled 31 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The room was very nice and clean, the bed a bit small for two people. The location of the b&b is good, although quite confusing at first as the public transports do not take you directly there. We did not get our taxi ordered even though we asked, which made us pay a lot more. Finally, the breakfast provided was very nice, but we had to ask for it and was not offered to us (a little awkward). The family offered to do our laundry for free, which was great. Overall we had a very lovely experience, everyone in the house was very nice, we felt very welcome and were greeted very well even early in the morning upon arrival. The family was very helpful with directions and information about San José, and showing us the local area. There is a supermarket very close to the b&b, and lots of restaurants to choose from (take note that they might close extremely early, even earlier than dinner time). The garden is as lovely as described with even a rare bird showing up.

Currently, I am a PhD. art history student at NYU. I was born and raised in Costa Rica but I have lived in the US for more than 5 years.
I love traveling and I have been both an Airbnb host and guest for almost 3 years. I love Airbnb because it is good, cheap, easy, and convenient. However, the absolute best part is the wonderful people you get to meet. I truly think believe this is a wonderful community of open, giving, kind people who are willing to open their homes and make someone's trip and unforgettable experience.
I also love animals and I hope to own a goat one day. :)
