The room fits 1 or 2 persons comfortably with a shared/private bathroom. (will depend if we have other guests)
You get access to the entire house, living & dining room, kitchen, laundry area (all those shared).
As part of the gated neigborhood you get acess to the pools, outside jacuzzi, hiking trails, soccer / basketball courts and bbq areas.
Interaction with Guests
We will get some contact but mostly early in the morning or evening, as usually we are out. There's no schedulles for me.
I will prepare our local typical tico breakfast and while you eat it I will probably be doing something in the kitchen so always free to chat and share some stories.
Our neighborhood is a gated private community that allow access to people living in it. We share all amenities and lots of yards of nature.
There is parking outside the house if needed, right where I leave my own car (super safe). There is access a bus stop that takes you to San Jose Downtown within a 15 minute walk.
Taxis available show up within 5 minutes after you call them.
Other Things to Note
We have a small dog (a dachshund) who will probably greet you everytime you arrive home.
-No smoking inside the house (the yards are huge)
-You get your key and can come and go as many times you want at all times, just try to be quiet if coming in late.
Marielos has been the consummate hostess for my time in Costa Rica. She is very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and surroundings, so she was able to help me get around with as few safety and logistical concerns as possible.
The 25-yard long neighborhood pool is situated in the middle of the park or "granjero," which is right outside the front door.
I highly recommend staying here especially if you are new in town.
Excelente anfitriona, Marielos hace de estar en Santa Ana una verdadera experiencia de retiro y descanso. La zona es alejada pero muy natural , ideal para descansar
Staying here was a wonderful experience for me! Marielos was extremely helpful and kind and we got along very well. She's the best host! I felt very comfortable and safe there. The gated community is incredible with a very large and tranquil park where you can go for a walk or relax in the pool. There are also numerous roofed barbecue areas with electricity where you can work. I hope to return here again one winter because it is such a wonderful place to visit!
