A 2 bedroom condo with enclosed tropical garden and shared pool - all amenities including washer/spin dryer. Close to SJO airport and 8 blocks from Central Park in Alajuela. Convenient central location for exploring the country. parking available and 24/7 security. Looking to rent by week January to April. One thing I love is that a car is not essential and I always feel safe.
The condo is spacious with everything you need to cook and be comfortable. The dining room is elegant and the garden provides an amazing place for breakfast outdoors. Two couples or a family can be comfortable especially because the garden provides space away from the tv and office. Note the condo is not air conditioned and enjoys natural airflow to the garden. This means that a bug may wander in and out at times, so if the sight of an ant bothers you, this may not be the place for you. My experience is that visits from any kind of bug are infrequent and inoffensive, but tastes differ.
Guests have access to the entire condo and the shared rancho and swimming pool. Covered parking is available just outside the door.
Interaction with guests
The condo manager is friendly and will do anything he can to make your stay comfortable. I encourage visitors to keep in touch with me if there is anything at all that they want. I am generally available in Canada by email or a call using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). My goal is to ensure your stay is comfortable and happy. The security staff are excellent. A maid comes in to clean before each guest arrives and to ensure everything is fresh and ready for company.
Other things to note
Two days notice for a reservation is suggested to give time for a maid to freshen the apartment before your arrival. If your need is urgent, quicker access may be provided but note a passport number if required.
There are occasionally issues with the Internet provider, but many months can go by without any problem at all. The service is provided by the primary cable carrier in the country so problems are not anticipated. Between 10 and 20 English tv channels are generally available as well as a wireless router.
The condominium has rules about parking (limited to one vehicle), quiet time (after 10 pm), and garbage (left in a bag by the road before 8:30 am).
