The bedroom is situated in a large condo located in Escazu, an upscale suburb of the capital city of San José, easily accessible from both international and domestic airports, only a short bus or cab ride away from downtown San José, as well as most of the entire metro area.
The condo is quite spacious (3000 square feet). The bedroom is adequate in terms of size and includes a queen-sized bed, a nightstand, and has a walk-in closet. The bathroom (includes hot water in case you are wondering) is shared with one other bedroom in the condo.
There is also a family room with cable TV, a large living room with bar area, dining room, full kitchen, washroom, and a covered parking space large enough for two vehicles.
The space is comfortable for either a single guest or a couple.
Guests have access to the kitchen, cable TV, wireless internet throughout the house, and secure parking.
Additionally, the most upscale shopping districts in Costa Rica are within walking distance (or a very short drive), including Multiplaza, Avenida Escazu, and Plaza Tempo. Supermarkets, Pricesmart, and Walmart are also only minutes away, as is Cima, the most renown private hospital in Costa Rica.
The condo is also within easy access of a large variety of restaurants.
No strangers (i.e. people who did not rent the place) are admitted at the apartment.
We stayed at Rick's home one night to catch up an early flight. Rick's home was very spacious. It was safe and very convenient to go to Walmart, restaurants and airport. The room where we stayed had a nice queen size bed with clean cotton bedding. It was too bad that we didn't have a chance to meet Rick due to our early flight. Thanks Rick for letting us stay at your lovely home. Hopefully we will see you next time when we visit San Jose.
The house was easy to find next to the Embassy of Uruguay. It took 25 minutes by taxi and we payed 25 USD from the international airport. We arrived late at night, the guard showed us the house. The place was excellent, more than enough room. Shops were closeby. Rick came along the next morning and provided us with good info.

Stayed in Richad's place once again, love it, love it, love it!!! Very safe upscale neighborhood, good shopping and food places around, conveniently located close to CIMA hospital. Room as described and even better, place is very spacious, nice kitchen and bathroom. Will certainly stay again. Thank you Richard!!!!
I stayed by Richard's beautiful house for one night before my Costa Rica traveling, also took care some stuff at CIMA hospital. Apartment located in upscale secure neighborhood, just 7-10 minutes walking from hospital. Nobody else we're staying in apartment at this time so I had all house for myself. I had really good stay, I didn't see Richard but we always communicated via emails, I got all my answers shortly. Really looking forward to stay there for couple more days on my way back to United States
The house is very nice in a safe and calm neighborhood ,the room is very big and clean, Rick is a nice guy willing to help
Very convenient! In and out like a breeze. Thanks much Rick! Too bad I stayed to sleep for less than 6 hours :)
This was the second time I stayed at Richard's house and it was again a great experience.

I'm from Costa Rica, and own several small businesses here, but I enjoy travel. I have stayed throughout Central America, and have traveled in Africa and North America. I plan a trip to South America very soon! Always looking for adventure and opportunity.
