The Space

Quaint community, typical Costa Rican homes, protected by friendly guards 24/7, who will announce your guests.
Private, sunny, enclosed back-yard.

Guest Access

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

Interaction with Guests

My friendly manager, who lives a few minutes away, is always around to help with advice and practical work.

The Neighborhood

I love the recently opened off-shoot of Automercado, a quality supermarket, just 5 minutes walking distance, on the main road.

Getting around

Public transportation is right up the main road (a 6-minute walk), leading to San Jose, Heredia centro, even to the fresh spring-water pool Ojo de Agua.

Other Things to Note

Ojo de Agua has 2 Olympic size (and several kiddie) pools that are constantly filled with new fresh spring water - it is unique, absolutely no chemicals. 'El Palacio' (3 bus stops) has also an Olympic size pool and other sports activities. Many restaurants and banks are on the main street.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very well equipped apartment, conveniently located, close to busses. Excellent cross ventilation, cool breezes. Highly recommended.

    April 2014
  • The house was perfect!--clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. It was easy to make ourselves right at home.

    The location was great for our day trips. We shopped mostly at Wal-Mart where they have a huge selection.

    Sad as it was to leave, the short drive to the airport was a good way to end the trip, especially at 3:30am!

    Ingeborg checked in by phone and email as did the local caretaker. Security was 24/7 and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.

    I'm hoping to return sometime soon. A great choice I have already recommended to friends.

  • Most thoughtful owner and great communicator. Ordered American cable television which was greatly appreciated during football playoffs and for the times we were not enjoying patio. As snowbirds we especially enjoyed coffee and fresh orange juice in the patio in our pj's admiring the flowers and birds.

    We felt very secure in the community. The location was great
    We were able to go everywhere we wanted to go by bus. A short walk to a convenience store that was a mini grocery and carried anything we could want including the best bread and pastries made fresh in-house daily.

    Thank you for making your home available to us.

  • It was a very pleasant stay. A very nice gated community where you feel really safe. The house has everything that you may need, and if you put the cushions on the swinging chair in the backyard, then it's a charm.
    Thank you Ingeborg!

I like to travel (Costa Rica and Germany are my favored destinations) Still in the process of perfecting my Spanish I like to read suspense stories (John Grisham and Ken Follet) I've written 3 screenplays which need some rewriting yet I won't be around as your host, but my excellent manager lives just a few minutes away.
