The Space

Quaint community, typical Costa Rican homes, protected by friendly guards 24/7, who will announce your guests.
Private, sunny, enclosed back-yard.
Restaurants, supermarkets (AUTOMERCADO), ATM, are within walking distance.
The COSTA RICAN TIMES has a write-up on my house. You can find it by searching for: a-perfect-home-base-costa-rica-vacation-rental-in-heredia.

Guest Access

Two Children's playgrounds amidst greenery (near entrance gate and down the hill.)

Interaction with Guests

My manager will be happy to assist you with any household chores, and the gardener will come in every two months to tend to the garden (after arranging for a convenient time).

The Neighborhood

AUTOMERCADO and FRESH MARKET, are within a short walk, on the main road, where you can find a low-fee ATM, freshly baked goods and high quality foods. There is also a pharmacy and Papa John's Pizza. Another strip mall with an Automercado opened in December 2014, also within walking distance.

Getting Around

Public transportation is on the main road (an 8-minute walk), connecting via San Jose to virtually all sightseeing attractions and beaches. Heredia centro is a few bus stops away.

Other Things to Note

Two Olympic size pools are within reach: one at Palacio de los Deportes (Heredia centro) and another at Ojo de Agua, renowned for its constant supply of fresh spring water that fills 4 pools (inquire with me for bus schedule).
