The Space

This house is surrounded by excellent shopping areas, supermarkets, restaurants, and the medical care tower of Hospital Cima. Only 15 minutes away from Juan Santamaría International Airport.

This beautiful Asian style home has contemporary architecture and amenities include an indoor pool, sauna, bar, BBQ, and a terrace with beautiful tropical flowers, a rustic table, and chairs. The terrace provides an ideal location for reading or sunbathing.Spacious and fully equipped kitchen.

Santa Ana is very popular with foreigners—it’s a place that has developed very quickly, converting into one of the most modern cities of Costa Rica. It has an abundance of facilities and services for all types of travelers including shopping malls, restaurants, stores, banks, pharmacies, and Costa Rica’s largest mall, MultiPlaza.

It is located within close proximity to Price Smart and Office Depot and the world-class Hospital Medical Tower. In addition there are two golf courses nearby. The food court mall, Momentum, has some of the best restaurants in the country and throughout the area you can find numerous excellent restaurants.

Eskazu Taj MaJal. This burst of Northern Indian flavor is such a rarity in Central America that we can overlook the slightly less-than-factual claim that the restaurant is the isthmus's only such option. The suburban mansion went through a few dining incarnations before Taj Mahal became a hit in 2003. Richly swathed in warm fuchsias, red ochres, and golds, the dining area sprawls through a handful of small, intimate rooms out to an outdoor gazebo in the tree-covered backyard. The price-to-portion size is a little high, particularly for North Americans used to good, cheap Indian food, but the sharp Tandoori dishes, curries, and biryanis are a welcome vacation from ubiquitous European and American fare.

  • Casa Peces is a beautiful home. There are some small details that require updating or replacement; pots and pans are in need of replacement, coffee cups lacking, some dinner dishes are chipped. Some light fixtures are without bulbs, and the outdoor terrace can't be used at night because there are no working lights.
    Staff was outstanding. Daily maid service was excellent and we were met by security on our arrival. Use the recommended taxi service; much cheaper and more efficient for airport transfers,
    The directions are poor; very difficult to find the house after dark and without street names, signs, or house numbers, this was a frustrating experience. We did not have a telephone number to reach after business hours so we were on our own to find the house.
    The house is close to the airport and to many attractions in and around the area. With it's central location and close access to major highways, there was no shortage of things to do.
    The area is modern with good access to shopping districts.
    The biggest drawback to the area is the neighbourhood dogs. With the open area concept of the house, there are several noisy dogs and this generally wasn't a problem during the night.
    All in all, I would recommend the house.
