Xavier was a perfect host even though our stay was short (one night). He accommodated a relatively late arrival (about 8:30 pm) and a very early departure (about 6:00 am). We didn't expect a breakfast or a farewell at that early hour but we received both! The house is lovely, so lovely! You would never believe it is in the heart of a very urban area. Literally you turn down an alleyway and in a few hundred meters you arrive at this lovely bucolic home. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Good eating was within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again! Looking forward to it.
Staying at Casa de las Tias felt like staying with family. Xavier and Pilar are wonderful hosts. The house is a real treasure and the gardens are beautiful and full of nature. It's a simple 15-20 minute bus ride from San Jose's centre which has nice parks and museums and shopping. In the local area there are several good restaurants within walking distance.
I highly recommend Casa de las Tias for any duration of stay in San Jose.
It is a living fairytale. I cannot beleive the place like this exists!
Xavier and Pilar are absolutely wonderful hosts, and the their house is cosy, comfortable and full of soul.
The breakfast was in the garden with hummingbirds (and what's breakfast!), the bed was heavenly soft, the rooms are tastefully decorated, and overall we felt like we are long-awaited kids coming to the holidays.
You should stay there, at least a day, it is an experience to remember!
Nous avons passé 1 excellente nuit dans cette superbe maison coloniale, à la fois calme et proche des commerces.
Notre hôte Xavier a été très chaleureux et de bons conseils.
Nous y retournerons avec plaisir pour un prochain séjour !
I had to post pone my trip because I was in the Hospital. I am just now feeling a little better. I plan on rescheduling in April 2014.
Xavier was very understanding and pleasant to work with. He said the main thing is for you to get well, and then we will see you in April. He and his wife are very nice and compassionate.
After my stay in April 2014, I will review again.
Thank you, Bonnie Barron
