PERFECT!! Clean, comfortable, safe, quiet. We felt at home. Perfect location and price. Hosts was extremely helpful and welcoming. Breakfast, the kitchen, and dining area were ideal to start the day on the right foot. The complimentary umbrellas came in handy. We would not change a thing; it was a perfect experience. We will visit you again and we will recommend it to many people.

This was a great safe residential area with plenty of amenities close by. Alexis and James were great hosts and did there best offering guidance and support. There were quite a few small bugs in the room and kitchen but it was only to be expected in tropical climate, the place was very clean and tidy. I would definitely stay again. Julie

Response from Diane-Alexis & James:
Indeed, insects are endemic to the tropics, most particularly at the beginning of the rainy season, which in no way relates to the cleanliness of the premises. We always recommend that guests close the windows at night and turn on the strong overhead fan. Not all comply. Since Julie was the only one inconvenienced, we have to take her on her word: she is particularly attractive to insects (she explained why), and particularly sensitive. Our sincere apologies nonetheless.

It was great staying at Alexis and James place. Actually it was my first trip abroad by myself. Little bit acared. But once I met them, everything went well. From airport pickup, schedule for what to do, booking. Alexis and Jame literally did everything for me. I didn't even make 1 phone call during this trip. This is more than thank you~~~~~

Great stay! Alexis and James were so welcoming and responded to my questions right away. They were able to have someone pick me up from the airport and he was very friendly and made me feel I'm right at home right away. The apartment was shared with other guests but I didn't mind at all. We all had our own private bathroom. I was only here just one night but I still was able to learn something about our guests which made me want to come back to them. I highly recommend this place! It is such in a safe and convenient area and very close to the airport.

Diane-Alexis and James's home in San Jose exceeded my expectations. The building features an incredible courtyard, perfect for anyone who wants to get in touch with the outdoors while in the city. The room itself was simple but cozy. Everything was clean and the hosts were quite hospitable. They even had an airport shuttle service which made my arrangements to leave go quite smoothly. Overall, I highly recommend this place!

Wonderful hosts. The rooms are just like in the pictures. It's a spacious apartment and one can have privacy in own room or meet other guests in the common areas. Jimmy and Diane have lived in CR for a while and are very knowledgeable locally and the rest of the country. They genuinely care about the comfort of their guests. I stayed with them for 4 days and on my return to San Jose for 2 more days. It was like coming home.
