About This Listing
Our beautiful and private home in the hills on coffee plantation available for weekly and monthly rental. Contemporary cabin with spectacular views over the central valley from the large windows and deck. 1 bedroom at tree-level. 40 minutes to the international airport. Great walks right outside the door.
The location is incredible; not too far from San Jose but you are surrounded by lush greenery and overlooking our own coffee plantation. We put a lot of thought into the design of the house and its integration into the surroundings and are sure you will enjoy relaxing on the large deck and taking in the views. We also get many exotic birds.
You are free to explore our grounds - organic coffee plantation and small forest that leads to a little brook.
Interaction with Guests
The house is private; but the owners' parents also live on the 3 hectare property and are happy to answer questions and visit with guests. They are retired Costa Ricans who lived in the US for over 30 years and love to host.
There is a small grocery store with basic necessities in the village; and full service supermarket and farmer's market in Grecia (15 min bus ride away). You may also source fresh products from our neighbors - vegetables, eggs and bread.
There is an hourly bus that passes by the house every hour.
Other Things to Note
The house is not far from the Escuela de San Francisco (you may look this up on an online map).
We were here for 3 days with our two dogs. We loved the house - it had everything we needed. The deck was really nice and there are many windows/doors that can be opened to have the cool air come in. Insect screens are in place everywhere as well. The bed was very comfortable. The only downside was the shower. There were two shower heads, but one fell from the wall spontaneously and the other did not get very hot. it was exceptionally cold when we were there, so it might be because of that. Also, the TV did not work. We do recommend the house though! It's a lovely spot and very private.
What a beautiful place! Such lovely accommodations with breathtaking views. The weather here in January was so perfect. Waking up in a super comfortable bed to sunshine on your face from the floor to ceiling windows was a divine experience. Thank you for a relaxing stay in a beautiful mid-century modern home!
