Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is in a safe/gated community. I arrived about 11 pm as expected, and fortunately, the taxi driver was able to call and connect with Wolfgang to let me in. The bedroom was fine and the house quite lovely with a nice view to the garden. I had a meeting at a near by hotel for the next 3 days, and I didn't see anyone after that arrival night. It was very quiet and nice to awaken to the birds in the morning! The price was excellent too.

    Response from Wolfgang:

    Tks for your stay in our home, you are always welcome.
    I was travelling with a Turistgroup to Manuel Antonio National Park during your stay at our home, but my son was there for your check inn.

  • Friendly and welcoming hosts Wolfgang and Oliver; I felt like a trusted member of the household. Emails were quickly responded to.

    A plaza about 1km from the house (walkable) includes a Fresh Market with ATM that dispenses US$ and/or Colones, as well as several restaurants. My wife and I enjoyed delicious wood-fired pizza, smoked salmon, and tiramisu at an Italian restaurant here on our last night in San Jose.

    I was a little concerned about engaging a (reliable) taxi service for a 4am trip to the airport. Oliver arranged this for me, and the cab was waiting outside the door at 4am as requested.

  • We only stayed with Wolfgang for two days, but it was very pleasant. His place is
    very nice, safe and very close to Cariari. He was having problems with a busted water pipe so we had to go outside to turn the water on and off to take showers, etc. He was waiting for the plumber to come and fix it. We were there on wed. and thurs. He felt bad about this trouble, but encouraged us to use water whenever we needed it. Hopefully, it is fixed by now. Wolfgang was very accessible and helpful. We enjoyed chatting with him.

  • Beautiful house and garden in a gated community. Quiet surrounding streets that are good for a walk or run, with many beautiful gardens that are a welcome sight if you are a northern-winter refugee. Shopping and restaurants within walking distance, including a Fresh Market with ATM about 1km away.

    Friendly and welcoming hosts Wolfgang and Oliver; I felt like a trusted member of the household. Emails were quickly responded to.

    A pot of coffee was always available to guests. I was also offered me a bowl of delicious homemade soup on my first day. Although not part of my contracted room amenities, Wolfgang kindly brought a mini-fridge to my room on the first day of my stay, since I was staying for several days.

    The airport is nearby with a $12 cab fare. To catch a cab, go to the cab-dispatcher outside the arrivals door, who will call a cab for you. Beware the cabs lined-up outside the entrance may try to charge as much as $25 for the same trip.

    If you need to get into the city, you have the option of a 450-colones bus ride from a stop near the entrance to the gated community. I waited about 10 minutes for a bus when going into town on a Saturday afternoon.

    Although the house and neighborhood are very quiet, the highway to San Jose can be heard, even though it is about .5 km away, and some flight paths from the airport pass nearby, beginning before dawn, so if you are a light sleeper, and sleep with windows open, earplugs may be helpful.

  • We stayed at Wolfgang's place for one very short night before our early flight the next morning. The house is beautiful, and our room was large, had a very comfortable bed and it's own bathroom with a nice shower. Wolfgang also has two adorable kitties, who we cuddled with before bedtime. :)
    The place was really easy to find and is in a nice, safe, gated community, just off the highway. Just tell the guard at the gate that you are a guest of Wolfgang. We had our reservation printed out to show him as well, and it was all good. It took us about 10 mins to get to the airport the next morning.

  • My husband and I stayed with Wolfgang for a very short evening before leaving to catch a flight home from Costa Rica. His home is in a nice/safe area and is clean and comfortable. He's about 5-7 minute drive to the airport. I would stay again. Thanks Wolfgang.

  • I only stayed here 1 night as I was flying out from San Jose in the morning. When I got there, I got help with getting my luggage to the room and everything I needed was provided for. A great place to stay even for just a night!
