Our comfortable studio apt is centrally located on a quiet street in historical district of San Jose, Costa Rica. It has separate private entrance as well access to our tropical patio/garden.
This spacious apartment is centrally located just north of downtown San Jose, in the city’s historical district Barrio Otoya known for its old colonial style buildings and beautiful mansions. Barrio Otoya and Amon were during their prime time the richest neighborhoods in San Jose where most of the elite used to live. Today many of the coffee baron mansions here have been converted into quaint hotels, restaurants, cafés, art galleries, antique shops, boutiques, intimate bed and breakfasts and offices. With its close proximity to downtown San Jose, these two areas are quite popular among the well-informed tourists.

Our plane was late and we didn't arrive until around 10pm. Peter greeted us cheerfully and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment. It is super clean and tidy and not missing anything we needed for our stay.
Peter was very helpful. He went for a walk around the neighborhood with us. The apartment is separate from his house, like a cottage. We also had access to his yard, very nice. Central location. Walk everywhere. Everything as described.
Peter's place was perfect. A generous size, well furnished and best of all - minutes away from the downtown area. I'd heard mixed reviews of San Jose but this area was pretty, quiet and dispite what I'd read I felt safer here than lots of places near where I live in Brooklyn.
Peter was exceptionally helpful - helping me copy my passport, giving me tips for my trip to the coast and making sure I had everything I needed. I can't recommend this apartment enough!
What a great place tucked into a convenient neighborhood right down town. The descriptions were spot on and the place is larger then the pictures lead on. Peter is a fantastic optimistic host and it was a pleasure to stay in the apartment for the 5 days i was in San Jose.
Staying at Peter's apartment was very pleasant. He was very welcoming, the apartment was clean and spacious. We felt very safe. The neighbourhood is quiet and pretty.
Peter was very helpful and has a big heart. Ask him how his dogs came into his life. :)
We would definitely stay here again! Thank you very much Peter.
Peter is a charming, friendly, helpful host who does everything he can to make you welcome. The entry is secure with two gates and the apartment has double bolt door locks. The locked gate made it possible for me to leave the apartment door open and still be secure.
The studio apartment is exactly as described - ample kitchen space with table and 2 chairs, dishes, glasses, cookware. Peter left a plate with three bananas, an apple, three granola bars, and a package of instant oatmeal that lasted for my three-day stay, as well as a large bottle of water.
The living space is ample with double bed night table and lamp, coffee table, futon and armchair for lounging, as well as a computer desk, and TV with good cable. There are large windows in the kitchen and living space for air and light.
The bathroom is also ample and well-appointed in ceramic tile with a shower large enough for two people.
The neighborhood is good and is a convenient walk to many points of interest.
I would definitely stay again.
We stayed at Peters place right after we arrived in Costa Rica for 2 nights. He was very friendly and helpful with everything! The apartment had enough space, a kitchen with everything you need and was clean. Peters place is located in the center of San Jose. We can definitely recommend a stay in his apartment and would love to come back one time.

I am retired and live in San Jose, Costa Rica.
For 15 years I was running a small hotel here in San Jose.
Five years ago I sold the hotel to fully retired.
