Interaction with Guests
We are a retired Canadian couple, who have their own residence on the same floor, so are always present to receive guests. Having been hotel owner-operators for 2 decades in Costa Rica, we offer all the travel and re-location assistance that may be requested, while guaranteeing the privacy of our guests. Their sole comfort is our goal!
Our residential neighborhood is one of the most prestigious of the capital, broad, tree-lined streets, well-guarded and well-kept. Two blocks from the largest and most animated of the city's urban parks, offering all kinds of cultural, sports and fitness options.
Situated on several public bus routes to shopping malls and to downtown, near the urban railway line; 20 minutes to the international airport; taxi stations on several corners around the park. The Hop-on Hop-off city tour bus stops just across the park.
Other Things to Note
The Residence is dedicated to the serious, the quiet, and the respectful. Perfect for short or extended-stay vacations, for work or study, for dental-medical tourism.
Pets are not allowed in the building, nor are un-registered overnight guests.
Diane-Alexis and James are clearly hospitality pros. Warm and welcoming with deluxe accommodations, they do a great job anticipating and providing anything guests may need. They have excellent wi-fi, which we needed to conduct business, and are very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay there again!
James and Alexis were very kind and helpful providing directions both in Spanish and English. They were very responsive and La Paz is beautiful and in a safe neighborhood. We were only here for a brief stay but found it very enjoyable.
everything as the description and as the comments from their guest...they were professional and they are it now! they did so many things on top and are really good touriguides!
unfassbar gute gastgeber! unser auto konnte verschlossen, also sicher, geparkt werden. die zimmer sind nichts besonderes, aber vollkommen ausreichend. dafür sind die gastgeberqualitäten im ganz besonderen hervorzuheben. beide haben mit uns zusammen unseren weiteren aufenthalt in costa rica geplant und uns wertvolle tipps gegeben. kleinigkeiten wie die tatsache, dass wir eine map kostenlos erhalten haben, hat uns sehr weitergeholfen und ist nicht selbstverständlich! ausserdem ist das frühstück inklusive! ;-)
bucht alle bei alexis & james :-D
My stay with Alexis and James was a wonderful experience. I came on vacation with my friend, and we were exceptionally-well welcomed. San Jose was our first and last stop in Costa Rica, and our hosts ensured that our arrival and departure were flawless and hassle-free.
Their house is beautiful and clean with plenty of charm and caché. As well, it is located in a safe part of town (we didn't have any issue walking in their neighbourhood past 6pm when it was dark). The bustling downtown is also a short 30 minute walk.
They organized to drive us to and from the airport for a small fee, avoiding the potential for scams or high taxi costs (especially in a city where traffic is frequent).
I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast for any traveler! Alexis and James are superb hosts, and they are great resources for visiting both San Jose and the whole of Costa Rica.
Both hosts were very welcoming! The apartment we stayed at was in a building with multiple apartments. We had a shared bathroom but it was very clean and not a problem for us. The apartment was neat. It had great wifi and breakfast foods in the refrigerator so we could make your own breakfast whenever we wanted. We could have also cooked other meals in the kitchen but we decided to go out. The neighborhood is nice and we would definitely go back.
