A cleaning is included every 2 weeks or more frequently for a small extra charge.
We usually meet you on arrival and departure to make sure you have all you need.
Avenida Escazu is probably the best area in Costa Rica which is why we bought this condo. Great access to the highway - just 5 minutes by car to San Jose but without the traffic and noise of San Jose. Great access, great shopping and dining too.
This is a great location, all the neighbors are professionals or retired and the building is very well maintained and secure 24 hours.
Great location, very close to everything. Stayed there for a month and felt very safe, got use to the condo very quickly and very soon felt like home.
My only issue was some noise, I guess it can be expected when staying in the middle of Beverly Hills of Costa Rica. Usually on weekends on the plaza nearby music is being played from 12pm-5pm. During weekdays some construction is going on. But good news around 5:30pm all noise stops and you can relax and enjoy Escazu.
My wife and I stayed at Bernard's condo in Escazú during the holidays and found it to be wonderful experience. The place was just as advertised; clean, spacious, and comfortable. It was also only a short walk from Avenida Escazú's wide selection of restaurants, stores and IMAX theater. Bernard was a great host and we recommend both him and his place for your next trip to Costa Rica!
El anfitrion es sumamente amable, eficiente y honesto. Todo lo que ofrece "Perfect Location Avenida Escazu" es verdad. La ubicacion del apartamento es excelente. Caminando se puede ir a buenos restaurantes, tiendas y cines. Ubicado en una urbanizacion muy elegante: Trejos Montealegre, con facil acceso a Ruta 27 que conduce al centro de San Jose, a las playas y al aeropuerto, asi como a varios lugares turisticos.
Bernard is an excellent person, he takes very good care of his clients. Honest with what he offers about his beautiful "Apartamento Avenida Escazu". The apartment is very well located. Walking distance to fine shops, movie theaters, coffee shops and restaurants. It is located in Trejos Montealegre, one of the best living areas of Escazu, with very convenient access to route 27 which takes you to downtown San Jose, to the Ocean and to the airport. We higly recommend Berni's apartment and his nice hotel in Alajuela: Pura Vida en Tuetal Sur.
Berni was an excellent host. I arrived at night and stayed my first night in a hotel where Bernie collected me in the morning and took me to the apartment. He offered a complete tour of facilities and made sure I was comfortable with how things functioned, and assured his availability should I have any questions.
A few issues came up as I was renting for 3 months, and Berni was always available for assistance. From some advice in seeking some medical assistance to a few recommendations on dining, he was available.
The apartment itself was perfect. A pretty complete kitchen afforded me the opportunity to cook at home some of my days and nights. The beds are comfortable and the linen excellent. Storage was plentiful.
I had only two issues; Taxis can sometimes take 10 or 15 minutes, but calling the front desk will get one ordered and they will call you when the car is waiting out front for you. You do not need to stand around waiting...but allow a little time for the car to arrive. And there is some construction in the booming area which caused an unusual amount of dust. Berni then arranged for weekly cleaning and it couldn't have worked out better! And the good news is that the construction is nearing its end. By the last few weeks...the situation improved notably.
I would recommend this apartment and Berni.
Great apartment, really spacious with amazing views. Plus you are in the best location in Escazú for walking to restaurants, cinema, CIMA hospital, Multiplaza etc.
Bernard and Nhu are extremely helpful with all local knowledge and meet you on arrival to run through everything.
Would recommend to anyone and we will certainly use again in the future!
Excellent!!! The owner is so professional And he was always on time for our arriving!! Great place, so safe with good location!!!
