Description

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.

The neighborhood

We have some great restaurants featuring Vegetarian, Vegan, No Gluten Caribbean, Seafood menus and bars such as the Beer Factory only a few blocks to the north in hip and up-coming Barrio Escalante or head on over to San Pedro with it's night time hustle and bustle from the young university crowd.

In case you are staying with us on the weekend, pay for a cab and join us for a trip to the farmers market, where we stock up on fruits and veggies. In case you'd like your adrenaline going, join me for a bike ride.

We are 1 block from Avenida Central in Barrio Francisco Peralta / east of Los Yoses / south of Escalente (East of downtown and before San Pedro).

Close to the UCR, Veritas, U Latina and some other universities.

Getting around

During the day catch the inexpensive buses that pass by every other minute to move around, once it gets dark you are better off catching a cab.
Bus stop is one block away. Any bus saying: San Pedro works

For your trip from the airport we can recommend a great shuttle service for $ 35 flat rate or if you arrive during the day you can catch the public bus from the airport to downtown and then a cab which all together will cost around $ 5-7, which is what I usually do too.

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 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.


House Rules

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.

Alexandra is a superb host. She was in constant contact and gave me step by step directions to tour San Jose and the surrounding sites. She even set up a rafting tour for me, which was the trip highlight. Her flat is in a central but safe location in San Jose and provides everything one could need. All in all it was a fantastic trip to Costa Rica in no small part due to Alexandra!

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.
