About This Listing
Want to rent a lovely apartment in Costa Rica?
This is a very quiet and friendly place. Close to CIMA hospital, Airport, Malls, theaters, clubs, restaurants and casinos.
If you stay for +1 moth, we can definitely make a better offer!!
This an apartment complex, located in Alajuela, but very close to San José (25-30 minutes to downtown) , 25 minutes away from CIMA Hospital, 45 minutes away from the beach (Jaco), 10 minutes away from the airport. The apartment is located in a tower building in a 4th floor. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, nice fully equipped Kitchen, (Refrigerator, Gas Kitchen, Microwave, coffee maker) Living Room, Dining Room, Dryer and Washer units, Balcony with a beautiful pool view. This place is perfect for a young couple with little kids. Also dogs are more than welcome.
Also in the campus, we have 4 BBQ Ranchos, 1 Party Rancho, A very nice and safe playground, Nice Pool, Tennis court, Lake with a beautiful mountain view, Lot of space to make some jogging in the mornings :)
15 minutes away from Malls (Multiplaza Escazú and Real Cariari) and nice Restaurants. (Located in Lindora, Santa Ana)
Full access to the whole apartment and common areas (If you like to have a BBQ Rancho or have a party at the Party Rancho, please let me know with a few days in advance, some extra fees may apply for refundable deposit).
The most amazing thing about this place is that you feel that you are completely out of the city, but in fact you are just 25 minutes away from everything. The place is green, healthy, safe, away from all stress and city noise. You can safely walk around at any time, there are security guards on duty 24/7. Kids can play outside, ride bikes, enjoy the lake, feed the ducks and fish!
Taxi and bus services are pretty decent. You can always call a taxi and the guard will let you know at the main gate that the cab arrived and is waiting for you. Also buses leave every 15 minutes from the main complex entrance and drive you to San Jose downtown (the whole ride can take 1 hour approx, but if you are in no hurries, this can even turn really "picturesque" and you can enjoy the ride.
(Don't worry, Costa Rica is still a very safe country and you can ride in buses with no problems! of course I highly recommend not to show your super fancy canon camera, your nice IPad or any object that can be tempting to thieves. Just be as careful as if you were walking in down town New York, thieves are the same here or there)
Other Things to Note
Now, being totally honest, If it was me staying there, I would rent a car. (even if bus and taxi services are good), because at the end of your trip you will finish paying the same money in taxi fares than in car rentals.
A lot of people contact me because they plan to give birth to their babies in CIMA hospital or Clinica Biblica. This is the perfect place to choose, really! The weather in Alajuela is perfect, warm and nice, peaceful and silence. Great for mommy's recovering, because she can go outside, have little walks with the baby around in the complex (which is HUGE) - I did it myself when I had my second baby.
You must leave everything like you find it.
This a familiar residence, so please respect the common areas rules.
We expect from you to treat our home as it was yours ( we really love our house), so be nice and kind.
