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.
I wish every place where I stay would be like James & Alexis's place. They would go out of there way to help you with anything. Made my stay as comfortable as it gets. The area is clean, beautiful and safe. It's 5min walk from the national stadium, near Hilton Hotel, and every store is in walking distance. James and Alexis are very educated people and would tell you everything about Costa Rica and beyond. And if there's any issue you can be sure you'll be left with a win/win solution. More than reasonable quality/price balance. Thank you James & Alexis!
The apartment was fantastic! Extremely tidy, and well appointed (lots of books), so an incredible value. Location very safe & convenient to walk around. The hosts were great, and James even drove us to the airport at 4:30am.
Alexis & James are the best host you could have! They both are warm hearted and really friendly. I even work-out with Alexis in the morning:) The apartment is in very good, safe and convenient area of San Jose. It's clean and really comfortable, just as its description and photos. I do feel home here. I will always come back to them if I am in San Jose. btw, I also met some really nice travellers during my stay:)
La casa de James y Alexis, es un lugar muy cómodo, limpio y organizado. El barrio donde se encuentra ubicada la casa es muy seguro y queda cerca del centro de la ciudad y de muchos lugares interesantes para conocer. Ellos siempre están dispuestos a colaborarte y son muy amables, haciendo que tu estadía sea muy amena. Si deseas confort y calidad por un precio exequible esta es una excelente opción.
Alexis and James were great. They helped organise tours and were extremely inviting, open and helpful throughout.
They have a lovely place with a balcony. It's clean and well organised with uberfast internet. Also the place is well located in a safe neighbourhood that is right by San Jose's equivalent of Central Park. Highly recommend.
Alexis and James were gracious hosts.We felt welcomed and as the home was ours.
The room was comfortable and the community areas spacious and inviting.
We will definitely stay here again and recommend it highly. The hosts were gracious and engaging. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I recently stayed at the La Paz Residence B&B with James & Diane. What a WONDERFUL experience! The home is gracious, welcoming, warm, and so comfortable! James & Diane are excellent hosts! They are very friendly, charming, kind, and very accommodating! The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen is just like being in a newly built home, and the balconies are just so sweet. The residence is very clean. The hot water and shower is just great. The towels and sweet smelling soap reminds one of being at their own home. The street is quiet and very well located to a great little Italian restaurant and a supermarket. This stay for me was just what I needed for my visit to San Jose. Thank you, James & Alexis, for making my stay a great experience!
