The Space

Relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of our home's tranquil, multicultural and open-minded ambiance. Bask in our magnificent weather and enjoy interesting conversations in our lovely garden, breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, homemade bread and jams, organic cereals, yogurts and rich Costa Rican coffee.

We have 2 guest rooms available, each with a queen-size bed, that share an attached bath. If you need space for 1 or 2 guests, please book "Casa Abierta Rm#1" or "Casa Abierta Rm#2". If this room doesn't appear available, try the other at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/69343. If you need space for 3 or 4 guests or if 2 guests each want a private room, please book "Casa Abierta Rm#1 & 2". If any room does not appear available on the dates requested, contact us as we may be able to accommodate you.

The home is a bit more than 205 square meters (2200 square feet). The first-floor consists of a great room (living room and dining room with an adjoining garden and patio), guest bath, large modern kitchen with all appliances and utensils, pantry, laundry room and a guest room and bath. Upstairs there is a den/library, large master suite and two guest rooms, each with a queen bed and direct access to an adjoining bath.

The downstairs floors are covered with a warm terra cotta tile while the upstairs floors and built-ins are all of fine Costa Rican hardwoods. Our home is decorated in rich earth tones and features hand carved woods, mimbre, wrought iron, fine fabrics and carpets and a collection of multi-cultural art. Almost all of the furniture was handmade in either Honduras or Costa Rica. There is wireless internet service throughout the home, a wide screen HD television, a music system and a large eclectic selection of music.

If you have any booking problems send us a message as we may be able to accommodate you. We are happy to assist you in any way. Just ask!

Guest Access

Although the bedroom we offer is a private space, the rest of the home is available for you to enjoy throughout your stay. Great conversations and daily breakfast are included. Laundry services are available upon request.

Interaction with Guests

Although not intrusive on your privacy, our hosts are available to share time and assist you in any way.

The Neighborhood

Why stay in the suburbs of Santa Ana and Escazu, far from cultural activities and requiring expensive taxis through heavy traffic to get you where you want to go?

We are in one of the best neighborhoods in the heart of the city – centrally located, safe, quiet and within walking distance to the University of Costa Rica, galleries, museums, parks, theaters, cinemas, fine restaurants, shopping areas and excellent public transportation. At the end of our street is a lovely park that runs along a creek for several blocks.

Getting Around

Secure parking inside our complex. Easy access to all forms of public transportation. We can book tours and transportation needs.

Other Things to Note

Casa Abierta is a project of Leading Change, a Costa Rican non-profit association whose purpose is to promote the transition to a more equitable, conscious and sustainable world. Other projects include the development of a sustainable community in Costa Rica and social and economic programs for poor low caste families in India. The fees paid through Airbnb are a donation to support our projects.

If you have any booking problems or if both rooms appear unavailable send us a message, as we may be able to accommodate you. We are happy to assist you in any way. Just ask!
