New listing for a very good girlfriend of mine. Judith lives in a large and spacious chalet on the outskirts of San Jose in a private and secure community surrounded by lots of nature. Everybody in the family speaks English, German and Spanish.
Get away from the heat and experience the fresher mountains, while still being close to San Jose center and San Pedro.
She is offering a big and sunny bedroom overlooking the garden and neighboring coffee fields (with pick your own coffee beans, no just joking). You'll sleep great at night being away from the hustle and bustle of the city while listening to the sounds of nature. During the day you can hike the mountain on various trails that are close by.
The room is equipped with 2 Queen beds. You’ll have a large closet and shiny wooden floors in the room.
There is use of the fully equipped kitchen as well as washer and dryer. Wifi available in all rooms and almost never used cable TV in the living room. If you don't feel like eating out or cooking yourself, eat with the family for a small additional charge.
Besides the large living room, there is also a nice terrace to relax, work or enjoy a meal.
That is up to you: entirely.
You are up in the higher parts of surrounding San Jose in a part called San Ramon de Tres Rios. This is residential living, while there is good access to downtown, there is no nightlife, no fancy restaurants and no hot spots close by. Do note that getting around by taxi is much more inexpensive than in the US or Europe.
Taxis 24/7 with service at the door. The Public bus that will take you to downtown San Jose is right around the corner. In case you have a rental car, parking is available free of charge. Shuttle service can be organized from the airport for $ 35 per trip.
They speak English, German and Spanish (so do I) and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

All I can say is WOW!! A beautiful home and a very gracious family.Judith is an amazing person and wonderful hostess. Wonderful morning breakfast ! The room is very comfortable with wonderful mattresses for a good night's sound sleep.Family is very warm open and friendly. For sure I plan to return. The arrangement with Alexandra was perfect!
I had a great time staying with Judith her lovely family. Really cool people! When they learned that it was my birthday, Judith had her son go buy a delicious cake. They lit a candle on it and sang "Happy Birthday" in Spanish and English! Judith is a native Costa Rican but has lived in Switzerland (so have I!) and speaks perfect English. Her sons speak German as well as English and Spanish. She was able to tell me a lot about the country. My private room was quiet and spacious with a really comfortable mattress and warm comforter. The neighborhood was really pretty - much prettier than San Jose.
