Awesome place to stay! I was there on a dental visit and couldn't be happier with the location and security . Diana and James are terrific!

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.

Diane-Alexis and Jimmy are great hosts. The rooms are in a spacious apartment and being able to use the kitchen was such a great added bonus for me. Both are very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and San Jose itself and are more then happy to answer questions, give tips on where to go, how to use the local bus system and are always there to help. Super nice people and I highly recommend their place. The neighborhood is very clean and also quiet.

I felt like I was at home, Alexis and James are warm and kind people, their house is quiet, a pleasant place perfect to rest after a long journey of work. I truly recommend it, I never felt insecure in the neighborhood( I walked most of the time); there are a lot restaurants, also a supermarket, 2 drugstores, nearby.

This was the second time that I stayed with James and Alexis in their beautiful home in a very nice, safe and convenient part of San Jose. I stayed for three nights, and they also accommodated acquaintances of mine the first night and the third night. These were women who needed a place to stay, and my hosts were happy to accommodate them.
