About this listing
We have a private one bedroom/one bathroom room that is fully furnished for rent in our home! We are located less than 3 miles from the airport (only a $6 cab ride!) Our home is on a safe, secure and guarded street! We hope to have you visit soon!
Hey Y'all! Well, my name is Jessie and I am originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. My husband is from San Jose, Costa Rica. We moved here to settle down for a few years. We currently both work and assist tourist on their vacations to Costa Rica! So, after seeing how much hotel costs were going up, we decided to open our home up to vacationers to have a more affordable nights stay! We are VERY close to the airport, so we are great because you can stay with us the night before you fly out or the night you fly in. We can pick you up at the airport! Let us know if you have ANY questions at all! Pura Vida.
So, here at our home... you are a short 300 feet walk from the Auto Mercado (a really nice grocery store) - it's more like a shopping center- which includes : a ATM/Bank, ice cream, cafe, etc. The bus & cab stop is directly in front of the Auto Mercado ! Also, the main road goes to Volcano Poas. It's an amazing neighborhood with overnight security!
Interaction with Guests
My husband and I both work, so we may not be around a lot. We open our house and hope that you will feel relaxed and comfortable! We can assist with whatever you need!
ABSOLUTELY! CAB/BUS STOP ONLY 250 FEET AWAY! Also only 3 miles from the airport ($6 cab ride!)
Other Things to Note
We do have 2 outside dogs :)
We do allow pets! We do have a few rules that we ask out guests to abide by- but nothing crazy! We can send you our information!
Jessie and her husband were both very kind and gave us a warm welcome. They came to pick us up at the airport, which was great after a 18 hours trip. Jessie helped us around Alajuela on the day after. The neighbourhood is safe, quiet and close to a great supermarket, as well as at walking distance from the centre of Alajuela. The bedroom was ok, although the bed wasn't very comfy, but I am a bit sensitive on that aspect.
The only bad point is the fact that they have two big (and lovely) dogs who's excrements have not being picked up for at least three days and the smell was getting annoying with the heat.
