The room has a single bed, desk, tv cable, fast wireless internet,closet,shared bath. Close to all facilities, malls, schools, restaurant, banks, supermarket and bars. It is clean, safe, and close to good bus and taxi service to San Jose and other locations in Costa Rica. The bus ride to central San Jose is only 25 minutes, (225 colones or less than 40 cents USD) Utilities including electricity, water, internet, cable tv, laundry and kitchen.
Arrived by Taxie and met with open arms by Angel and Maria. Made to feel welcome immediately. First thing Maria does is make me coffee and breakfast.
Angel and Maria are the perfect hosts and informative and accommodating in every way.
My private room was exactly as their listing indicated. When other guests departed, I was given access to another area and loft to use as I wished.
I was able to negotiate an arrangement to have meals with hosts which allowed me to experience local foods. To say that Maria can cook is an understatement.
The neighborhood felt very safe as well as the neighbors. Access to banks and markets within walking distance. Buses come often and are very close to travel to San Pedro and San Jose.
Maria very helpful with understanding bus access. Exciting to travel with her to markets in San Jose and San Pedro.
Interesting to meet other guests from France, Czech Republic and Holland.
I was here for 1 month and found the home, the hosts and the area to be a place to stay for a few days, a week or longer.
I highly recommend Maria's place. The hosts gave me keys which allowed me to come and go as I wished.
Please give Angel and Maria your consideration and feel confident that your stay will be safe, secure and worry free.
Angel and Maria are both great and very welcoming. They took their time answering my questions and showed me where to pick up the bus. Maria made delicious corn tortillas for breakfast one morning, get her recipe! I had to leave early unfortunately and Angel was very kind, gracious, and extremely helpful! Would recommend to anyone!
The hosts were very accomodating. The home is very nice, medium size, and very clean. The $10 room was more than what I expected with my own shower The view was nice and it was very quiet on a dead end street. Bus service was nearby and corner grocery stores were nearby and supermarkets are about a 15 minute walk away. The dogs are cute and well behaved. Much quiter and the air is cleaner than San Jose.
I loved being at Angel's place. It is clean, has a TV in every room and good WIFI as well. My room overlooked the city and was in a quiet dead end street, it had a bathroom as well and for $10 a night you cannot find a better place. You can use the kitchen and make your own meals as well. It is 10 minute out of San Jose in Sabanilla but the cheap public bus station is so close by and it runs every 20 - 30 minutes. Angel speaks English very well and is helpful with all your needs. I will be back if I am here again.
I can't recommend this place highly enough. In only three days I felt like Maria had become my best friend! She took me all over the city and showed me how to get around, even when it was very difficult to get to. She even took me to see the Festival of Lights (how lucky am I?), which was this amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience. For the price? Wow. I don't get this much value out of a $100 a night hotel. If you're new in town and looking for a soft place to fall or you're looking for a place NEAR the city but not IN the city for a stay, you can't go wrong.
Oh dear!!It was amazing with Maria and Angel.I stayed one month in their home. And I become a member of the family...I felt home so much that Now when I am miles. Away I mis them and I miss my San Jose home sooo much.
