Where you’ll be

San Rafael, San José, Costa Rica

This neighborhood of Trejos Montealegre is an upper middle class neighborhood with professionals and embassies while still not posh. People will greet you on the street. The house is 300 meters from an upscale area called Ave Escazu and not much farther than that is Multiplaza which has 420 stores. We are walking distance to several excellent dentists; many guests come here for dental work. On the other side of the scale, I am a 20 minute bus ride to downtown San Jose where there is a Central Market and lots of things to entertain. I have a view of the lovely Escazu hills and you can take a hike in them from some great vistas.

I have had many adventures (with what seems to be endless travel along with life experiences) and these adventures continue in Costa Rica. I had a guest house in San Francisco and I would love to welcome you to my home here in Escazu, Costa Rica for a short or longer stay. This home was picked and decorated with YOU in mind! Since arriving in Costa Rica in 2002, I have been a teacher specializing in English for Specific Purposes and English for Business Purposes which is very interesting because I get to learn a lot about all kinds of fields. Some of my students, along the way, have come from banking, nutrition, medicine, finance, small business, diplomacy, etc. I had an interesting time getting two Master's of Education simultaneously, one from the University of Costa Rica and one from Framingham State College. In 2010, I taught at EARTH University in Guacimo Costa Rica where they teach sustainable farming, so this city girl learned a lot about farming and I have gotten very interested in issues around farming and other matters about sustainability. I have also been a massage therapist for nearly 25 years, something I am very passionate about. Since June 2011, this very interesting house has had people who have come from India, Pakistan, France, England, Poland, Serbia, Russia, Switzerland, England. Germany, Reunion, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S., and others. We just never know who might show up! Sometimes we have eight countries represented at the table, and yet, often there are unexpected and interesting connections. It is a house filled with blessings! I hope you will join us and continue the adventure!
