The space

Please do not go to the house unless You have a confirmed airbnb reservation.

When I am not in the house, My dad asked me to only accept airbnb request from people that speak spanish only. He doesn't speak english and he loves to help to crate beautiful experience so he doesn't feel comfortable with the language barrier. If you do speak spanish, please communicate that to me over message or write on spanish.

My dad is going to be hosting you, he loves to cook so maybe You get to try some of his famous lemon pie :) if you want to experience the real Costa Rica, this is the place to stay, my dad was born and raise at Sarchi, and service is a second nature to him. He lives at a very costarican neighborhood where everybody knows each other. Sarchi is famous for its hand painted oxcarts, and fine wood hand made souvenirs. Sarchi is a very small town, and my dads family has been here forever!! A relative of him created in 1923 an oxcart factory and it is named Eloy Alfaro oxcart factory. The genius of Don Eloy allowed the installation of an efficient hydraulic energy system that generates 12 horsepower, powered by a nearby river called Trojas, which sets in motion all the machinery required in the workshop. From its founding until now, Eloy Alfaro Factory is known for its excellence in ironwork necessary for the production of carts, especially for the branding of the wheels. This is the only factory of carts in the country that has worked and keeps working with hydropower. Looking forward to meet you!

The neighborhood

Is a typical costa rican neighborhood. Everybody know everybody.

Getting around

There are taxis and buses that go to Grecia or Naranjo and from there you can take another bus to San Jose or the airport.
