The Space

Welcome to The Tiger's Den. I hope you'll enjoy your stay with me in San Rafael de Escazu.
My name is Jilla, but almost everyone calls me Tiger. My house is right across the street from Fresh Market at Paco Plaza. This is a secure gated community with a guard at the entrance at all times. It's a five minute walk to a great gym and about a 15 minute walk to a great pool. We're about 20 minutes from the center of San Jose and 25 minutes from the main SJ airport (Juan Santamaría International Airport). We're also about 20 minutes from the Tobías Bolaños International Airport airport in Pavas.
There are two bedrooms I rent out with a queen sized bed in each. Plus my bedroom and a private suite with it's own bath and private entrance.
Provided with the cost of your bedroom are towels and linens, and a private or shared shower w/hot water, color TV and cable, plus high speed wireless internet.
I enjoy sharing my space with people who are easy-going, neat, healthy, or at least interested in getting healthy, non-tobacco smokers.

This is a gay, vegetarian and animal friendly establishment. You don't have to be gay or vegetarian but I do hope you like animals. I have two cats and two puppies. If you have allergies, or don't really thrill to the idea of animals in your space, just keep your doors closed and the animals won't enter your room. If you want animals to play with mine are very friendly.

Guest Access

You will have access to the whole house (excluding my bedroom and art studio) including the kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, an outdoor bar/BBQ area, that includes a 5th full bathroom and washer and dryer, a refrigerator and running water and seating for several people.

I have a big yard with a patio, tropical plants surrounding a bar/BBQ area. The garden offers the perfect environment to read, eat, or simply relax or meditate. The bar is also a nice dry place to watch the rain in front of the fireplace during the 'green' season.

There's a dining room and a large eat in kitchen with all American-style appliances including a dishwasher. The living room includes a TV and fireplace.

Interaction with Guests

I interact with guests on an intermittent level. I'm in the house a lot, but also have an art studio so I'm in there for a big part of the day. I will cook meals at a cost of $10.00/per person, but usually require 24 hours notice. I'm friendly, but also busy.

The Neighborhood

There are over 50 restaurants ranging from McDonalds to one of the finest Italian restaurants in Central America. There is a huge shopping plaza, and my favorite, a great park with a river and tall bamboo less than 3 minutes away from my front door.

Getting around

Yes, there is convenient public transportation! The bus stops practically in front of the entrance to this small gated community. It will take you almost anywhere for .60 to .80 cents. There are also numerous places to visit with in walking distance and taxis are abundant.

Other Things to Note

Although I list the place as handicap accessible, there are 3-4 steps to climb.

  • The lovely first floor condo has a great location in an upscale are of Escazu and excellent security. The home, bedroom, and bath are very clean. Although Tiger was away when I stayed, she had a delightful hostess, Raquel, staying there to help everyone. Raquel answered all our questions about directions and things to do. I was there to receive outstanding dental treatment from Dr. Vinicio Prada and was familiar with the area. The other guests while I was there were absolutely great! Friendly and interesting, we enjoyed the time we were in the the communal area. Had a great experience!
