Interaction with Guests
I'm very friendly, I like having dinner and drinks with friends, you're welcome to join us anytime but I also respect and appreciate privacy
Barrio Escalante is a great neighborhood, full of cafes, bars & restaurants for people all ages, supermarkets very close by, organic market every saturday just a few blocks from home, overall a vibrant and renovated place to live.
Taxis are around 2000 colones from downtown ($4), there's a train station under 10 min walking distance with trains to Heredia, Cartago and Pavas. The barrio Escalante bus passes by every 15 minutes from and to San José.
I like clean and organized spaces.
Respect for others and their things.
Smoking area in the patio.
This was, hands down, one of my best traveling experiences. . Paula is an amazing host who was a great balance of San José/ Barrio Escalante .. I was coming from a yoga retreat in the mountains in the south and found this place after another host didn't give me enough info.. Paula was prompt in responding, gave me enough info to get around and her yoga classes were amazing. . I will visit her again as a lifelong friends. ..
Paula was not there when we arrived but she arrived soon after and was very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation matched the description and though basic we were comfortable.
The neighbourhood was satisfactory with stores and restaurants nearby , and a short twenty minute walk to downtown San Jose.
Paula was a very welcoming, warm and friendly host. She gave us great directions to find her house which was in a lovely, quiet and safe area.
The house has got loads of character, a lovely big dance studio, where we did our own workout and a wonderful airy space off the kitchen where we ate and our breakfast. The bedroom was tucked away up some stairs so we had privacy too.
Paula sang to me and made a special fuss as it was my birthday! It was wonderful. She also helped us find the bus we needed and we loved chatting to her about her dancing work and Costa Rica. A really special night in San Jose.
Had an awesome time staying at this place ! Host is very accommodating and her energetic personality was great to be around to start our trip.. Would stay here again for sure !
