This guest-house formula offers the advantages of having a spacious home away from home, shared with a selected few, plus the comfort and privacy of their own space. Located in a tree-lined, well-serviced neighborhood.

The Space

One of 5 bedrooms in an elegant 2500 sq. ft. apartment, this sun-filled double superior room offers a queen-size bed, with new orthopedic mattress and quality bedding, plus a work-desk, an arm-chair, a wall of windows that opens to a covered balcony overlooking gardens. (See our other listings)

We're two flights up from ground floor, in a small attractive apartment building, in a pleasant, central, upscale neighborhood. We have in-door parking with remote-controlled garage entrance, and a camera-equipped intercom system.

Guest Access

Outside the bedrooms, all areas are accessible: massive kitchen, dining room and living room with TV both opening to covered balconies, a library, a central work-station w-fi with computer, ample storage. Laundry service available.

Interaction with Guests

We are a retired Canadian couple, who have their own residence on the same floor. Having been hotel owner-operators for a decade in Costa Rica, we offer all the travel and re-location assistance that may be requested, while guaranteeing the privacy of our guests.

The Neighborhood

The residential neighborhood is one of the most prestigious of the capital, wide streets, well-guarded and well-kept. A mix of private residences, embassies, schools, corporate headquarters, institutions. Two blocks from the largest and most animated of the urban parks, for all sorts of cultural, sports and fitness options.

Getting around

Situated on several public bus routes to shopping malls and downtown, near the urban railway line; a 10 minute drive to the domestic airport; 20 minutes to the international airport; walking distance to all conveniences: grocery stores, pharmacies, clinics, banks, cafés, restaurants, gyms and spas, as well as the park's contemporary art museum.

Other Things to Note

The Residence is dedicated to the serious, the quiet, and the respectful. Perfect for extended stays, for work, for study, for convalescence.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • James and Alexis were great hosts. Very attentive, accommodating, and provided great advice with places/locations for us to visit during our trip. This was handy since we didn't have any plans during our time in CR. The room was clean, good size, and very welcoming. The location is very convenient to many local places to visit, by any means of transportation. We enjoyed walking the park near the stadium. Would definitely stay here again.

  • My friend and I were staying in San Jose one night before flying back to the US. The location was incredibly convenient for getting where we needed to (downtown, dinner, the airport). The accommodations themselves were lovely and clean. We were even allowed to leave our car in their gated carport. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • You'd be hard pressed to find a better place to stay in San Jose. My girlfriend and I spent two nights here and Alexis and James are wonderful hosts. There's stuff to make breakfast each morning, wifi, hot water, and even board games! Alexis even upgraded us to a larger room upon arrival free of charge :). If you want to explore the city, be sure to check in with them for maps and top places to explore. Also they will take your laundry for $7 per load and have it back within a day.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in James's appartement. It´s a really Nice appartment, in a quiet and safe neighboroud, from
    where you can easily walk to down-town (only 20 minutes walk). James was really friendly, and helpfull for all kind of informations. The room was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen full equiped. We will definitly recommand this place. Thank you for everything.

  • It was a pleasant stay at James' and Alexis' apartment. The apartment is in
    a quiet neighbourhood, but we felt safe to walk home after dark. There're
    several restaurants within walking distance as well. Both of them made us
    feel very welcome. However, the problem with this listing is that the host
    apparently expects his guests to interact with him socially during their
    stays, while not specifying this on the listing. When we did not do so, the
    host told us after the stay we had been "tremendously withdrawn",
    qualifying this as "a minor miracle". This in a place that's a commercial
    B&B. As a result, we would not stay again.

  • I had an amazing experience staying at la paz residence. Downtown is 20 minutes away by walk and theres was a grocery close by. James had good advice about activities and things to do. I would certainly would recommend this place.

    May 2014
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with James and Alexis.
    The room was ideal and we had access to a fully equipped kitchen; where we were able to make ourselves breakfast.
    Our hosts were very friendly and even gave us a parting gift! Wow!
    Thank you for the hospitality and the lovely book!

Après avoir été hôtelier pendant plusieurs années dans la grande et petite hôtellerie a travers le monde, l'idée m'est venue d'ouvrir ce gite a taille humaine, dans lequel nous pouvons offrir a un prix très raisonnable et une qualité de chambres supérieure, un service qui a toujours été ma devise dans ce domaine et j'entends bien continuer. Au Costa Rica depuis 22 ans, nous saurons vous conseiller lors de votre séjour parmi nous. Pura Vida!!
