The space

All rooms have en suite bathrooms except the MTN VIEW which shares a bathroom with one woman. Stays for 2 days up to 4 months which could include moving from one room to another so be sure to ask about this host to determine what is possible.

This calendar is for the DELIGHT room which is a 13 Ft X 13 Ft with a QUEEN BED and PRIVATE BATHROOM. It sleeps two comfortably.
See the separate calendars for the other 3 listings. The descriptions follow.

See my other calendars and rates for the GRAND, MTN VIEW, GARDEN, POAS, ARENAL, BOYERO and COURTYARD rooms.

RATE: $28-$75./night with weekly and monthly rates available.

The Residence and Neighborhood:

Bed and Breakfast for short term guests or longer term with kitchen privileges. This beautiful home is in an upscale, safe neighborhood of Trejos Montealegre, Escazu (about 8 km, 15 minute bus ride from downtown San Jose) has 4 rooms to meet different budgets and needs regarding time. Stay for 2 days, or 2 months, perhaps longer.

There are restaurants in the immediate neighborhood, movies, shopping center, medical/dental offices, hospital, Spanish lessons, grocery stores all within a short taxi ride or not much longer if you are a walker.

The GARDEN Room is small, but cute, with a private bath, our most economical, all the amenities on a cozy scale. Door opens into the garden. There is Internet in the room and at a covered table just outside for gathering or working with Internet. Guests have been offered larger rooms but have chosen this one! This room is appropriate for only one person, two if you are very friendly with a TWIN BED. (A double mattress could also be provided if desired).

The DELIGHT room is a comfortable 13 ft X 13 ft room with a private bath and a QUEEN BED. Sleeps two comfortably.

The MTN VIEW room is an even larger room than the DELIGHT with a shared bath and a QUEEN BED and TWIN BED. It is a "favorite" of many guests because it has a view of the lovely Escazu hills and is sunny and pleasant all year 'round. The one other person who shares the bathroom is usually out and on her way by 6:30 AM so it is almost like having your own bathroom.

The GRAND room is a huge room with jacuzzi (see photo)
It has a QUEEN BED and a SOFA or TWIN BED. Sleeps 3 comfortably with space to put more mattresses on the floor for friendly folks.

Weekly and monthly rates available. Guests are welcome for medical/dental tourism, internships, transition times, relocation exploration, international telecommuting or ???

International telecommuters wanted! Be in Costa Rica while on the job, then go off to explore after work!
House enabled with Internet infrastructure to meet the stringent business/work needs. Multiple Broadband high speed Modems and Routers enabling Wi-fi and wired connections in the rooms and throughout the house. We do our best to keep you connected 24/7 and we are (usually) successful!

All rooms nicely furnished with new high end mattresses. Movies galore! Books galore! Sunny garden. Wi-fi for free throughout the home, laundry service, maid service available. Near Multiplaza, hospitals, ...most everything you need!
Taxi service from the airport can be arranged in advance ($30).
Tours available.

Great connections/referrals for your medical and dental needs at a fraction of the cost of the U.S. or Canada but with equal, perhaps superior quality. Ask us for details.

4 adorable cats are outside only.

Separate listings with calendars have been created for the other rooms mentioned above. The calendars are updated usually on a daily basis. Please write if you have questions and/or specific needs.

Have you ever had an amazing vacation in a foreign country only to come home to a US$500 cell phone bill? You only checked a few emails, used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, and uploaded pictures to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to make your friends jealous, so how could it cost that much?

I've been a victim to these outrageous roaming fees which has lead me to either leave my phone in airplane mode or buy a local prepaid SIM card in the country I am visiting, neither of which is ideal.

Beginning on Oct. 20th, the U.S. cellular company T-Mobile is changing the game in international travel by getting rid of international roaming fees. That's right, U.S. T-Mobile users will now be able to roam the world with their current cell phone and number at no extra cost.

The service will be available in countries including Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy, China, and 200 other countries. It allows unlimited data usage and texting, with phone calls at a rate of 20 cents per minute. The service automatically connects to the local service in the new country and requires nothing for the user to do.

T-Mobile's new plan is perfect for the frequent and infrequent traveler that wants to always be connected while they are away. Picture being able to hop from country to country in Europe, use all of your data, apps, maps, and email, and not be penalized for it. The savings and convenience are extraordinary.

T-Mobile is currently the only cell phone provider in the United States offering an international cell phone service like this. It's great they are the first to recognize that we live in a global world where people want to be connected no matter where they are. It will also be interesting to see whether the larger carriers like Verizon and AT&T eventually jump on board.
