Depends on their arrival time & how busy my day has been, but I always take a few minutes to welcome the guests & answer their questions!
It is a very small town with a Church, School & a park that used to be a vast coffee plantation.
It is very safe area, you can go out at anytime!

Other Things to Note
You can always aks Johnny first!
I expect guests to relax & get some rest while they get set to start their vacation or depart CR!
Extremely convenient! Only about 3 minutes away from the airport with a cab. He waited up for us, as our plane was delayed an hour. We had reserved a room for our stay on the way back, but we missed our shuttle and had to go straight to the airport. I didn't have any service seeing as I'm from out of the country and had no way to notify him. Sorry! All in all, perfect for a quick rest before heading out for a long day of travel.
Rooms are clean but there is a lot of noise from the outside, but that happens when you are this close to the airport.
Johnny was very welcoming and opened his door to us at 1:00AM when we got to the airport which was only a few minutes away! The cab drivers knew about his Airbnb and took us there right away.
Johnny was flexible, laid back and helpful. If you are looking for a place to stay right near the airport, this is the place for you-- we walked there in just a couple of minutes on our way out to Nosara.
You will hear the planes flying overhead, but even without earplugs, this didn't disturb my sleep. I didn't plan on sleeping in but if you do, you may want to consider earplugs.
A+ for Johnny as a host! Thanks for having us!
Super convenient location, clean private rooms. Johnny was playing his guitar downstairs, made for a soothing lullaby. Close to hotel/rental car shuttles.. If your lucky just hitch a free ride with them to airport if leaving. But don't tell them I told you so.
A perfect stay for a night before a flight! It is situated 5 min drive away from the airport. We arrived rather late, but it was not a problem. So thanks, Johnny!
