Interaction with Guests
About me?, Dogs lover (puddle style... maybe not a manly breed, but well guys... nobody can be perfect).
I've been working in tourism for over than 10 years, so I pretty much know what people is looking for, when we talk about lodging.
I guarantee the apartment has everything you need and you will feel at home :). That's the clue and the most important detail for me.
Second promise :) I promise I will be ALWAYS available for you. if you see the reviews from past guest you will note that I am a person who will help you with any doubt or request.
Once the reservation is confirmed, I will also send you a document with more address details and recommendations about where to eat, what to do, etc.
As I mentioned before, the neighborhood is safe and quiet (family area). As safe as you can walk at midnight without any concern (I have done it several times but don't be too confident).
The neighbors are also a plus. Most of them are families and they work for restaurants, hotels, tour operators. Some of them speak fluid English and some not. Pretty calm and quiet people at night, but if you try to talk to some of them, they will help you out and they will answer you with no hesitation.
Public transportation gets to La Fortuna from San José or Liberia, but you can take optionally book a shuttle service (Interbus, Ride CR, Montezuma Expeditions, Desafío and Gray Line are wonderful companies and most of them have connections all over the country).
There are also, flights landing to El Tanque, which is located 20 minutes away from La Fortuna (Sansa and Nature Air are the local airline companies).
If you are coming from Monteverde, the cheapest and easy way is booking a Jeep-boat-Jeep through the Arenal Lake.
Most of the transportation companies won't drop you off to the apartment, because they can do it just at hotel, but Arenal Rabfer Hotel is located just 200mts from the apartment, so you can set that hotel as drop off place.
Other Things to Note
If you need any suggestion or advice, just let me know, I know pretty well the country, so I can help you to save some money.
There are only two house rules:
One: Don't smoke inside, there is plenty space outside for that.
Second: Have a blast on your stay!!
Great little apartment within a few blocks of LA Fortuna. Roy was extremely good with communication.
Roy's place was fantastic and an amazing value for the price. It is a safe 5 minute walk to downtown (even at night) and Roy was very helpful.
Roy was very responsive to our questions before we arrived in La Fortuna, and we had a chance to meet him once we got there. The apartment, while small, was clean and met all our needs. It was ideally located--just three blocks from the city center and walkable to restaurants, bakery, bus station, market, church, etc. The neighborhood felt safe and was a mix of homes, hotels, and some small businesses.
I really enjoyed my stay at Roy's apartment. It's located just on the outskirts of town, yet just a quick easy walk to everything. That's how I like it! The kitchen had everything you could want. The beds were comfortable. The Wi-Fi signal was strong. Roy was not always there, but he answered all my questions from his iphone immediately. I ended up staying an extra night in Fortuna because of a mix-up with the Interbus pick-up. Long story. Not my fault or Roy's fault. As Roy already had the apartment booked for someone else that day, he confirmed space for me at a nearby hotel. Then, he came to the apartment and drove me there with all my luggage! Thanks again for that, Roy! Thanks also for all the help and advice! So, I would highly recommend Roy's apartment here to everyone!
Roy is an excellent host ! Although we never met him during our stay, he was very quick to respond to all our questions! The check in was able earlier which it is appreciable.
The appartment was just perfect for our stay: clean, confortable and well equipped.
The space was perfect for our four day stay. The location was in walking distance of town and the neighbors were friendly. It was especially neat because it was living with the locals and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
The instructions and information Roy sent were so helpful. Since the space is in a neighborhood it could have been hard to find. The maps and pictures got us right to the door. We arrived a little early and were still able to check in.
Our time in La Fortuna was amazing!!! The apartment was just what we needed. It's located just under 10 mins walk from the main town centre, was quite and very tidy. Roy was an absolute champion with regards to everything, he was super helpful and made himself available at all times. The area itself, is easy to get around with heaps of delish restaurants (we frequented the Rain Forest Cafe - great coffee and typical Costa Rican breakfasts) we did a few tours - the Arenal Volcano hike, Hanging bridges, hiked Cerro Chata - which we were told was very easy but it was quite challenging - if you have never Hiked before, hiked to the Celeste River, went to the Baldi Hot Springs which were great to relax. All in all a great trip, it pays to bring wet weather gear as it rains a lot in La Fortuna. Thanks again Roy, for the great apartment and making us feel welcome
