HEART OF SAN JOSE CITY - BUT QUIET
This is literally in the very center of San Jose, walk no more than 8 blocks to best museums, galleries, nightlife and groceries.
$12 overnight parking is available in a guarded lot, daytime street parking available.
This is a 25 - 45 minute drive to airport depending on traffic, buses also run nearby to airport and many locations in Costa Rica.
I have a tour business and can have our driver pick you up or take you to the airport for $30. This is $5 less than the regular rate.
I operate a city walking tour business so this is definitely the best place to stay to get great activity referrals. If you are interested in a city tour visit - toursanjosecostarica to see options and book in advance.
We stayed at Stacey's place only one night. She is a gracious host and the location is really right in the middle of San Jose, convenient to the market, museum, and great restaurants. The place is simple, clean, and has everything you need, and if you like yoga, it is adjacent to her yoga studio! Thanks for having us stay!
Stacey was extremely welcoming and I wish I could've stayed longer than I did. Wonderful host!
Had a great first time in Costa Rica! Stacey's place was exactly as described and very convenient to downtown attractions. Literally walking distance within a few blocks you are in the center of San Jose. Also very convenient to schedule tours smoothly since it is right below a hotel. Robert was a great host and they both gave excellent tips on how to navigate through Costa Rica. Excellent host and will definitely be in touch when I travel their again. The yoga class was a great addition to the stay. Thanks!!
Stacey's room behind the yoga studio was just as described- we had a brief stay of just one night but thoroughly enjoyed San Jose while we where there, much in part to dinner suggestions that Stacey made for us. :)
Stacey is very helpful and friendly. She guided me to where I needed to go and made sure my stay was comfortable and clean. She showed me the ins and outs of her rental and gave me info on the local attractions. Very private and safe. Definitely would stay here again!
was at Stacey's for such a short stay, as a stopover on our way to Manuel Antonio. Robert picked us up at the airport an was very friendly. the place is right next to downtown so we had the chance to experience San Jose even for one quick evening. had a good sleep and then we were off. had we stayed longer, we would have tried a yoga class, the studio looked like an ideal space!
Stacey and Robert are nice hosts. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport so we didn't have to worry (there's no real addresses in Costa Rica so it's difficult to explain how to get somewhere you've never been!) the room was clean and quiet and has a lot to offer in the area.
We stayed at Stacey's apartment for four weeks. It is place for those who favor location and character over fancy accommodations. It was, as promised, close to everything, downtown, museums, buses, taxis, train station, parks, restaurants, and her Yoga studio. We enjoyed the yoga classes and the freedom to use the apartment as a base as we visited Costa Rica. Stacey and Robert were terrific hosts
We stayed here one night upon our arrival in San Jose, before departing by bus early the following morning to Pavones. Stacy is an excellent hostess and she was extremely helpful! We enjoyed the yoga class that came with the stay as well. Many thanks to Stacy, Roberto, Alonso and Doña Perla for their kindness and warm welcome to Costa Rica!
Stacey was an excellent host for our last night in Costa Rica! She got us to a safe 24hr lot to park our car and recommended a great local spot for dinner. The location was a little hard to find but once we did were close to a lot of happening bars and restaurants. Although I can't say anything more about local nightlife because we were too tired from surfing to go out. Where she's at is also seemingly a safe part of town and quite easy to get to San José (SJO) airport. There was no wifi/internet to connect to but otherwise in terms of accommodations she went above and beyond...all in all I would highly recommend Stacey to a fellow budget-traveler.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
