Interaction with Guests
I do not live in the house but love to share with them. I will be available for anything they may need and will enjoy to have a coffee if they staying is long enough that I can get away from my responsabilities.
Nevertheless I use to give them a tour around the area where the Apt is located and explain as much as I can about the Heredia Town. I usually be at the house when they arrive and if I am not able, I will leave my assistant and show up the next day or as soon as possible. I like to help my visitors in any way I can and I will be happy to do so.
What I like more in this neighborhood is the location and safety.
This Residential area is so close to many places, there are buses, cabs or taxis, restaurants, pharmacies, supermarkets, fast food, ice cream places, gas Station, bus stops and so on.
The Public Transport is one block from the Apt to different areas in Heredia. There are also Cabs stop at 1 block.
If you have or need a car, we can arrange a place to park in the building.
From the Airport you can take a cab as well as a bus. I can also arrange with a private Cab I know well the transport direct to the house.

Please take care and respect all the furniture & appliances. Be kind with the use of water & electricity, do not waste it, be friendly with the planet.
This place was wonderful. I got there and was surprised to find out that I had the whole apartment to myself. It had a nice sitting room, and great kitchen. Margoth sent a cab driver to greet me, and then met me at the apartment with juice, and fresh fruit. When she learned I didn't speak much Spanish, she took me around in her car and showed me how to get tom place to place. In Heredia, they don't use addresses so directions can be difficult. When I lost my keys, she was quite kind and helped me get another set.
Overall, the experience was fantastic. I would warn against staying here if you are on the louder side. I am not loud but kept late hours because of my workshop, and I found out there were a few noise complaints from the neighbors which I was quite surprised about. Other than that, I would absolutely recommend this space, even more so because Margoth was an awesome hostess.
The apartment was the perfect base for exploring the central valley! It has all the amenities you can possibly need including washer & dryer and a comfortable bed (i stayed in the master bedroom). The neighborhood is quiet and safe with a bus stop and a mini-market two blocks away.
Margoth is a very kind and accommodation host. She left fruits, snacks and juices on my first day and even offered to give me a ride to San Jose on my departure. Thank you Margoth for the wonderful stay!

About the Host, Margoth
I like to work with new people everyday, know them, help them and enjoy to show my country. I run my own bussiness which is property management and some real state.
I studied economics but I do not work on this anymore, now I dedicated to work less, doing meditation very seriously, taking care of my family.
I love to travel so much, love Asia and its culture & foods! I like to read "light" books with nice and inspiring messages! I like to see movies except those with terror, blood or awful crimes, I prefer cartoons than those, I like something that make me laugh and have nice dreams! I like almost any kind of music, except heavy metal.
I am an easy living person (do not ask this to my husband, ha, ha!), like to cook, talk, relax, walk in the mountains, have a cup of coffee with a friend. I use to travel in a very cheap way and sharing with people. This is a nice way to really know the culture of a country and enjoy the trip.
I like cats very much!, to share with my family and friends, to walk and do light exercise, doing yoga and Tai-Chi, to cook at home, I have been vegetarian for a very long time as well as a Zen meditation practicioner in a Center we have here in my province, Heredia. My saing is: enjoy your life as if it will be your last day on Earth! and I also love this phrase: "To live the experiences that life offer to us is and obligation, to suffer its or enjoy its, is optional!
