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.
Alexis and James are the most amazing hosts!!!
I sent them the request a couple of hours before boarding the plane and they were able to approve it in a timely manner AND arrange an airport pickup. They are extremely nice people who take care of their residents and make them feel at home. Alexis was also very helpful in terms of pointing me in the right directions and connecting me with the people who could help with my small sustainability research. I highly recommend staying with them ! You are gonna LOVE it! Pura Vida!
Wonderful place, very generous and helpful hosts. Will be recommending to my family when they are there, and would recommend it to you too!
Great hosts that made me and my daughter feel at home. Alexis and James were very helpful and pleasant in any issue. The neighbourhood is a wealthy area, very calm and safe even when dark. Close to many stores and restaurants and easy to reach from the centre of San José by public bus. James is also very helpful when you need to be picked up at the airport. The rooms are as shown and really clean. The use of the kitchen was great for me while traveling with a child. I met interesting lovely people, I appreciated the whole atmosphere and I can highly recommend a stay in the house of this lovely couple.
It was the best way to start our trip in Costa Rica.we felt really welcome and really liked the apartment and neighbourhood.we can definitely recommend thielemann place.
We could not have better hosts than that! From the airport to the end of our stay in San Jose, they've been so nice and so helpful!
The place was so nice, very clean and nothing bad to say about it!
I highly recommend this place - for the price, the place and the hosts! :)
I would recommend this place to friends and family without hesitation!
Awesome place! I visted James and Alexis with my girlfriend and we felt very welcome from the beginning! He picked us from the airport for 25$ and showed us around the neighborhood. Both took some time to answer all our questions and were very helpful!
Both Alexis and James were wonderful to us. Warm demeanors and happy to assist in what ever way possible. Everything they described online was perfectly accurate.
