Pipa's place is really lovely and relaxing, and Pipa is a great host. The loft is fantastic, spacious, has a separate office with large work desk and a lovely view of bamboo out the back. Would not hesitate to book again.

Pipa is a very nice and welcoming host! The apartment is very spacious, very big kitchen and we loved the balcony.

Where do I begin?? What an incredible home and host! I hesitate to call it a house, it's more like a work of art. Just beautiful. With stained glass installed in the inner doors (bathroom and the super cool saloon style doors to the bedroom) that in the morning catches the sunlight and splashes the walls with an array of soft colors. The lovely designs and colors in the concrete floors are (like the entire home) of Pipa's own creation. The suspended (and anchored to prevent swinging) bed is enormous and comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud inside a painting. The balconies (yes plural) face both the bamboo forest with a lovely bubbling creek to the back and the quiet street at the front with a little pulperia and bus stop right outside. The loft, which reminded me a bit of a super hero's fortress, is also rigged with an alarm system. So if safety is a concern for you, Pipa has that (along with everything else) more than taken care of. Haha It was quite late when we arrived yet we were made to feel so welcome right away. Pipa's neighbor Carlita cares for the property in Pipa's absence. So any time Pipa was away travelling during our stay, Carlita was always there with a smile and an answer for any question we had. Pipa, what an impressive woman. She designed and built the work of art we stayed in HERSELF. Welcoming, helpful, informative, warm and bad A** are a few words I'd use to describe her. Haha Pipa also allowed me to bring my cat with me during my one month stay in her loft, which was such a nice gesture on her part. And my cat, like all cats, turned out to be a ninja in finding out how to escape the loft (even with the ALARM set and all the doors closed, magic I tell you). When my cat decided to go AWOL, Pipa was right there, jumping down into the creek and climbing through the thick bamboo like a pro, and found my cat. The loft is close enough everything you could possibly need (Auto Mercado, bus stops, restaurants, etc) and yet still peaceful. Thank you Pipa for everything!!

I enjoyed my stay at Pipa's house. She made me feel very welcome as soon as I arrived, and she was always available to answer questions I had about the neighborhood or Costa Rica. She has lived many adventures, as I have, so our conversations were certainly entertaining! For my first trip to Costa Rica, staying in this part of Escazu was very educational. This is not the modern part of town (CIMA/Avenida Escazu/Multiplaza), which is a few miles away. This is the more rustic, older part of town, which can be quite charming. It is walking distance from a number of restaurants and even Walmart is reachable in about 30 minutes. The home is generally quiet, although be prepared to commune with nature a bit. Being so close to the stream and a native bamboo forest, you will be able to see friendly squirrels, ants, geckos, and other fun creatures! Pipa was also kind enough to allow me to use her garage to park my rental car and her washing machine for laundry. Try it, you'll like it!

It was a pleasure to stay at Pipa's home. The design is funky and I was glad to be in a solid build home with a safe feeling. It is in short walking distance to several restaurants. Pipa allowed me to park my car in her 2-car garage. It's nice to relaxe at the back balcony and listen to the creek and looking at lots of bamboo and squirls. Pure nature in the back. The nights were quite except the creek keeps running but it's a nice water sound. The unit had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. WiFi was working well. Pipa is nice to talk too, she has lots of knowledge in home contraction, importing contruction matterials and in setting up solar powered homes and much more. If you plan to build a home in Costa Rica it is certainly good to talk to Pipa. I would rent her unit any time again.

Rent at your own risk. The owner’s behaviour is not honest and not stable. First negative experience after 5 months traveling with 2 kids and 2 cats with Airbnb hosts. Pipa was pretty clear and good on initial communication, she even accepted a DHL package for us before we get there. The house is exactly as on photos and the surrounding is green and quiet. So what’s wrong? We agreed that we’ll stay in the house longer. That was not something like “Oh we want maybe to stay in your house for some more”, but the agreement for 2 months rent with a handshake. Then, after a try to move us to another house, which was much older, gloomy and we actually didn’t like it, Pipa sent an sms that she needs her apartment, and we had just 5 days to find another property. She blamed that the kids are too loud, but before we make that deal, we asked if any problems with kids and Pipa confirmed that no problem with that. When we said we’re going to leave, Pipa decided to “check” the apartment if we broke something etc. Kids broke 1 cup, 1 plate and 1 bowl, we replaced that dish with double amount. Also a sliding door from the kitchen storeroom stopped to slide. We had to open it forcibly making a small scratch on the bottom. Of course we told Pipa about that immediately, agreeing to pay for the door. Finally we got sms, that we have to pay $40 for the “hand made” particleboard dyed door and $20 for “clean and wax the floor to erase the scratches”. If you pm us, we can send you the photos of that 10 years old full of scratches floor, and for sure we didn’t add any new scratches there. Being a responsible tenants, we’ve paid $60. Being a responsible Airbnb members, we want upcoming tenants to be informed about the host behaviour.
