About this listing

Nice and quiet room in large and sunny 3 bedroom apartment located at the edge of Los Yoses from downtown.

Very quiet area, but within easy walking distance to downtown (4 short bus stops or approx. 10-15 min walk). Very close to Corte IDH, UCR, UAM.

Enjoy nightlife just a few blocks away in Barrio Escalante. Many interesting places to eat or chill from vegetarian to Starbucks.

Medical Stay - Students - 1 month plus welcome
We are LBGT friendly
We speak English - Spanish - German

The space

The room faces the backyard and if you are lucky and wake up at the right moment, you'll see a hummingbird fly by. Instead of traffic noise you will wake up hearing the birds chirping.

Start the day with a leisurely breakfast, that comes with fresh fruit, a good cup of coffee or tea, real bread and marmalade. We also have a Magic Bullet if you'd rather mix up a smoothie.

We have a large colorful living room with large windows letting in a lot of sunlight, which really is the place to sit and relax, read a book and check the e-mails and plan out your trip.

If you don't speak any Spanish or little, no problem. We also speak English and German. French is rusty, but I have a neighbor that can help if needed.

I have tons of books around, bring one and leave another one.

In case of any questions, just ask and I'll be happy to answer them.

Guest access

You get use of the kitchen and washing machine and if needed you can surf on one of our computers.

The room has a private, ensuite bathroom.

Interaction with guests

That is up to you: entirely.

We love to share and enjoy common meals. We can toss a coin who cooks. We have been on trips, walked downtown and hung out in the local bars, but we respect the space and silence just the same.

Other things to note

For years we have tried to help the animals that cross our path and we do have a couple of friendly dogs and 1 cat, which we have rescued off the streets and which we haven't been able to place into permanent homes yet.
One of our dogs, Bouncy is 24/7 happy and she might be a bit much for some people. Let me know and I will try to get her out of the way.

We offer Medical Stay, Semester abroad, homestay and are also a great choice for those wishing to take some language classes in San Jose. We speak English, Spanish and German and on occasion give personalized Spanish classes on-on-one. These can be started via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to get you ready for your trip and then enhanced while you stay with us. There is also a very good Language School close by, some of my guests say the best.

We always enjoy meeting nice people and are pretty easygoing.

Our dogs are used to visitors and love treats just not during dinner. They can have all the leftovers after and will wag their tails just as much. They also love going for walks or a jog, for those that like the company.

I was very impressed with the hospitality that Alexandra showed my girlfriend and I. The location was ideal to walk to the market and very close the good quality restaurants. We have already booked to stay here again!

The location of the apartment was in a very easy area to get to many schools. It was nice to have my own adjoining bathroom. Breakfast of fruit and eggs were provided. The the hostess, Alexandra, was away on holiday, but she had others attend to her normal hostess duties.

Love to read, enjoy the days as they come. Every now and then a stray comes along - some have stayed, while other cats and dogs have found new homes, so there is always some assortment of 4 legged friends around.

I have started to add a couple of additional listings from very good friends and I do vouch for each of the listings added. I hope that these unique listings make your trip to Costa Rica simply amazing!

Check my wishlist for a one of a kind Treehouse close to San Jose, a unique Yurt close to the Chirripo up in the mountains in the middle of Costa Rica or a romantic getaway in Tortuguero. All my listings are LBGT friendly.

For those that are travelling to San Jose, I am travelling throughout June, but have my friend Erika from Venezuela co-hosting on my behalf. She speaks English and she and my dogs will welcome you just the same as if I would.
