I spent peaceful nights in Jose's cabin. It's fully equipped. It's a real paradise less than an hour from San Jose Airport. The view is superb. I could observe toucans and hummingbirds among others. Jose and his wife Ana are lovely people and a nice company. I loved spending time with them. I recommend this place !

Wow! Where do I begin? Well, I want to return NOW! Our host Ana and José including their daughter are genuine kind human beings and their fur children Teddy, Sony and Lola were the sweetest and polite dogs. The rustic charm cabinas were clean, comfortable and homey. The mountain view is phenomenal! 6 days of Pura Vida in Grifo Alto was not enough! I want more, and will return! Gracias Jose, Ana y Joyce y supuesto los perros por brindar nos su amistad! Besitos a todos!

Jose and his dogs were great hosts, and made us feel very welcome. The mountain view of the city is unparalleled and the neighbors (and horse) are very nice too. We would love to stay again.

My girlfriend and I stayed with Jose for 1 night before our flight out of San Jose. Grif Alto is a secluded village atop the mountain with a great view. Print out and screen shot directions before attempting to go there without GPS. This bungalow is made from wooden crates, like Jose said in his listing so the space is rustic and is subject to the occasional insect. It can be drafty due to high winds but if you aren't picky this place will do just fine. Jose is a really nice guy who speaks perfect english and came to get us from the local store when we called him to find the house.

I can't rate Jose and his special place high enough. You would be hard pressed to find a more authentic Costa Rican experience than staying at the cabin, meeting Jose, and seeing some of the hidden gems around Grifo Alto. Make sure to take any recommendations Jose gives. He was extremely communicative, knowledgeable, worldly, educated and most of all helpful. He even met us in town to show us to the house when our GPS and cellular data had problems. We had the best dinner of our trip with him and really enjoyed the fresh, cool air up at elevation. You just can't beat this AirBnB experience for the price or any price really.
