Description

The Space

Welcome to The Tiger's Den. My house is about a block from Fresh Market at Paco Plaza. This is a secure gated community with a guard at the entrance at all times. It's a five minute walk to a great gym and about a 15 minute walk to a great pool. We're about 20 minutes from the center of San Jose and 25 minutes from the main SJ airport (Juan Santamaría International Airport). We're also about 20 minutes from the Tobías Bolaños International Airport airport in Pavas.
There are two bedrooms I rent out with a queen sized bed in each. Plus my bedroom and a private suite with it's own bath and private entrance.
Provided with the cost of your bedroom are towels and linens, and a private or shared shower w/hot water, color TV and cable in your room, plus high speed wireless internet.
I enjoy sharing my space with people who are easy- going, neat, healthy, or at least interested in getting healthy, non-tobacco smokers.

This is a gay, vegetarian and animal friendly establishment. You don't have to be gay or vegetarian but I do hope you like animals. I have two cats and two puppies. If you have allergies, or don't really thrill to animals in your space, just keep your doors closed and the animals won't enter your room. If you want animals to play with mine are very friendly.

Although I list the place as handicap accessible, there are 3-4 steps to enter the house. There is also a bed in the front fenced in area to relax in the evening and watch the moon and stars, with a hammock and two swinging chairs.
You have access to the rest of the house including the kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, an outdoor bar/BBQ area, that includes a 5th full bathroom and washer and dryer, a refrigerator and running water and seating for several people.

I have a big yard with a patio, tropical plants surrounding a bar/BBQ area. The garden offers the perfect environment to read, eat, or simply relax or meditate. The bar is also a nice dry place to watch the rain in front of the fireplace during the 'green' season.

There's a dining room and a large eat in kitchen with all American-style appliances including a dishwasher. There is a large living room with a TV and fireplace.


I interact with guests on an intermittent level. I'm in the house a lot, but also have an art studio so I'm in there for a big part of the day. I will cook meals at a cost of $10.00/per person, but usually require 24 hours notice. I'm friendly, but also busy.

This is a great neighborhood, close to everything! Gym, swimming pool, bus, a nice park, walking distance to restaurants, shopping and hundreds of services like hair salons etc.

The bus to San Jose stops practically in front of the house. .60-.80 cents to get anywhere.

I love to teach people how to prepare great meals. You buy the food and I'll show you how to prepare it.

Other Things to Note

If you'd like to learn to prepare a few things I love to teach people how to cook. Anything from a simple hummus dip to a full course meal for two or more. I would also be glad to take you to the local farmers market if I'm around on Saturdays. I like to hike the mountains around here too, if you want to join me, you may
