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.
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 were the perfect hosts! They went over and beyond to make sure I was welcome and comfortable. I chose to use their airport pick-up and I am so glad that I did, It took the hassle out of finding transportation and allowed me to feel completely safe and comfortable. I took a day to do a combo tour that Alexis recommended, and it was the best choice I made while in San Jose! Not only was the tour incredible, but Alexis took care of all the reservations for me. She even woke up early to wait for the company to pick me up.
I would highly recommend the hosts, and the residence is in a great location. Just private enough to get some much needed rest, yet still close to the airport and other main activities. The small supermarket down the street is very convenient as well.
Alexis and James are exemplary hosts that care for their guests with sincerity and gusto. Living in Sabana Norte was a pleasure as the neighborhood is very safe and welcoming. The wide array of restaurants, supermarkets and the proximity of the bus stops make it a very convenient location. Apartamentos La Paz is definitely my place to stay in Costa Rica.
Alexis and James are great hosts and the place was perfect, all you need and even more! Very comfy rooms with private balcony and a big shared space with an 'all you need kitchen'! Would definately stay there again!!!
We had a great stay. We were welcomed and had a very thorough presentation of where everything was located. Great space and everything clean and very welcoming environment. Restaurants in walking distance, another plus. 20 minutes to the airport.
Thank you very much for everything. We really enjoyed our time at your place. Thanks for sharing your advice and answering every question. We had a wonderful time and we definitely come back
After a week with family on the pacific coast, the rest of my group departed a day earlier, so I was on my own for 24 hours. I wanted to be close to the airport in San Jose, but still wanted proximity to the culture. Alexis and James proved to offer the ideal lodging to round-off a fabulous vacation to CR.
The location was perfect. 20 min from the airport, it is about a $30 taxi ride to La Sabana--an upscale neighborhood of San Jose; it is safe, quiet, walkable to grocery stores and even has a corner Starbucks for those who require commercial familiarity. The large city park across the street is also perfect for a morning run, afternoon picnic, pick-up soccer or just to sun-bathe and take in the life.
The lodging is simple, but luxurious for the price. Rooms are large, bed comfortable, a desk and a personal balcony provides a great private space while the large kitchen, common space and communal balconies encourage dialogue among guests--I felt I got to know the 5 other patrons quite well in the few hours we interacted.
As hosts, Alexis and James were professional, caring, and warm and they set the tone to create a welcoming and communal environment. They are across the foyer on the same floor, so they are always accessible and certainly take pride in providing a clean and comfortable space. James also offers his time to shuttle to airport for $25 to support Alexis' local non-profit selling jewelry.
It was a treat to stay!
James and Alexis were helpful and kind. They run a great b&b and you can't beat the price. Alexis made calls for us on our first night trying to find a place that to eat that was open.
