Description

The space

If you want to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica with all its charm, this is the place for you! Located 10 minutes south of the capital of San Jose, the house is up the mountain, with cool weather and gorgeous views. The gardens are filled with tropical plants. You can take walks up to the quaint little town of San Antonio or day trips from here to the volcanoes, the rain forest, and even to the beach. The coastal town of Puntarenas is less than 1 hr away.

Guest access

Newly renovated with updated bathrooms and kitchen. There is now a second floor and guests have access to the study and TV room with stunning views of the mountains.

The neighborhood

It is located on the mountain above Escazu center, in the area of San Antonio with its charming Church, spectacular views, and friendly people. There are eateries along the plaza and an excellent Spanish restaurant. Walk on up the mountain to the cemetery or mountain bike all the way up.

Getting around

Public buses to Escazu center and to San Jose run in front of the property. You can also flag or call a taxi. Property is gated so your rental car will be safe inside.

Great house in a great location! The house is beautiful and works for families with little ones (just need to be careful of the stairs). There are restaurants and groceries walking distance to the house. Grace was very responsive host and solved any issues we had. Highly recommend this house.

Beautiful, well furnished and decorated house! Spacious rooms with comfortable seating and beds. It made us feel like being at a cottage. But do not forget it is set in a hill up a mountain so yes you can walk around but keep that in mind. This makes for a great view of the valley day and night. Fully equipped kitchen, extra blankets if the nights get a bit chilly. Once you set the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) gps coordinates makes it easier to find.

The house was beautiful, comfortable, and larger than we expected. We had two extra people want to stay with us at the last minute which made me a little nervous about the space but no, the house more than accommodated the six of us. Furthermore the house was fully furnished and stocked. We were able to cook and eat meals together. Watching the sun rise and set from the porch was an amazing experience. I must say that the house was a bit difficult to find, but once we found it and learned our way around the neighborhood it was not difficult to give directions to return. The neighborhood was nice until it got dark. You do not want to be standing on the sidewalk outside the gate after dark.

This is a great house! The location is quiet and yet convenient, everyone is so nice and it really feels like home. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting San Jose.

I did not get to meet Grace in person but Cynthia, her sister in law, was there to greet us. Cynthia was very helpful in getting us settled into the house. I had an over all positive experience. The house was very clean and cozy. I felt very safe and secure in the area the house was located. It was totally what we needed for our trip. Only one thing could have made my experience excellent, a solid wifi connection. The house we stayed in shares wifi with Cynthia's house which is right next door. The wifi is spotty in the house which was a bit of a bummer because we needed the wifi for work. Cynthia and her husband did their best to accommodate us by trouble shooting as much as possible. It was out of their control and I think the wifi and 3/4 G just doesn't work very well anywhere in Costa Rica from my experiences.

Graces place was absolutely perfect.. It was way up there on the side of a mountain but still in town. Not in a neighborhood that you go out and stroll in, but we weren't looking for that. It was spacious,clean, well stocked and very comfortable. Very homey. Her sister and brother in law were and nephew who live next door were extremely pleasant and helpful.The airport is barely 20-25 minutes from her door step. I would recommend her place to anyone needing to be close to the city of San Jose.

We would love to have you stay in our home! For us it is such a restful and beautiful spot that we feel renewed and energized when we are there. We hope that is true for you, too!
We travel quite a bit for teaching and consulting and so every chance we get to be in our Costa Rica house is a special gift. We often stay in other Airbnb's or vacation rentals so we are excited to know that you are considering ours. Staying in a home is such a wonderful way of engaging with the local community. We love shopping in local markets (there are two great ones just down the hill from our Costa Rica house), walking the neighborhoods, and sitting around having a glass of wine or beer while watching people walk by. A wonderful way to live!
