Interaction with Guests
About me?, Dogs lover (puddle style... maybe not a manly breed, but well guys... nobody can be perfect... just kidding).
I LOVE tourism and that's why I've been working in this industry for over than 10 years, so I pretty much know what people is looking for, when we talk about service, lodging, activities, etc.
I guarantee you will feel that you arrived to warm place, pretty similar to a piece of your home :). That's my goal with every guest.
Second promise :) is: I will be ALWAYS available for you and when I say always it means 24/7. If you have any question, doubt, inconvenient, whatever you might think that I can help you, please do not hesitate to let me know.
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 as well as quiet (family area). As safe as you can walk at midnight without any concern (you can also confirm it in many past reviews from clients).
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 are kind people.
Public transportation gets to La Fortuna from San José or Liberia, but if you want a more comfortable ams faster arrive, you can book a shuttle service (Interbus, Ride CR, Montezuma Expeditions, Desafío Adventure 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 and you are not renting s car, the cheapest and easiest way to get to La Fortuna it is booking a Jeep-boat-Jeep through the Arenal Lake (there are several company options in the Internet).
Most of the transportation companies won't drop you off directly to the apartment, because they can do it just at hotel receptions, but Arenal Rabfer Hotel is located just 200mts from the apartment, so you can choose this hotel as drop off place.
One: Don't smoke inside, there is plenty space outside for that.
Second: PURA VIDA!! And enjoy as much as you can :
Living room with couch and 49" TV with cable + fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, hot plate, electric skillet, rice cooker, blender, microwave, coffee maker). Tea, coffee, salt, sugar included.
Roy's place turned out to be the perfect place to stay. Unfortunately I didnt get the chance to meet him as we arrived late. However his place was very clean and tidy. Perfect location to walk anywhere in town. He also left great recommendations for tour adventures, dining and more.
Roy's place is great! Super clean and comfortable. 4 of us stayed there and had a great time. Really close to La Fortuna and my wife was extra happy with the clean and newly renovated bathroom! Thanks for the last minute accommodations Roy!!
Roy's place is a great stay if you're looking for something affordable, clean, and safe. Walking distance to the center of La Fortuna. Roy was super helpful and a great host.
I stayed in two different apartments of Roy's and both were exceptional. Thanks Roy!
Roy es un estupendo anfitrión. El apartamento es cómodo, bien situado y tranquilo.
La communication avec Roy a été très facile. Il a répondu à mes questions très rapidement et ses recommandations sur les activités et les meilleurs restaurants ont été très appréciés. Pour une famille de 5, dont trois enfants, l'appartement été de taille idéale. Il est confortable et la kitchenette nous a été bien utile. A 5 minutes de marche du parc central, il est également bien situé. Une belle expérience. Merci Roy!
Muy buena opción para La Fortuna. El lugar es cómodo y cuenta con los servicios para una agradable estadía. Dos cuartos, 3 camas y 1 baño. Cocina y nevera. Internet y a/c en los cuartos.

About the Host, Roy
Hi! Briefly I would say that I'm a passionate nature lover who had the opportunity to born in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and growing up with an active volcano located as backyard.
In college I studied Business Administration but I have worked in customer service for several hotels, tour operators and travel agencies, so basically I've been out of the administrative part, most of the time.
Couple years ago I started to rent my apartment to locals, since it's a very touristic area, later I found the opportunity to offer it through Airbnb. Well, I think I learned pretty well what people need because lots of wonderful reviews have allowed me to offer nowadays 6 great lodging options that you can find on my lodging options.
Trying to give the best for reaching your satisfaction it's been the key of my succeed and the daily great reviews are the proof :)
I hope to keep doing things better and if you decide to stay in one of my apartments I'll always try to reach your expectations.
I hope to keep making good friends from all over the world, everybody without exception is welcome :)
Feel free to ask me anything you need to know.
