Andres is a very engaging host. He arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and made us very welcome. The flat is great and filled with furnishings he designed. We are going to stay there, we hope in just a few weeks upon our return. Highly recommend the flat, the location and (website hidden). Great fresh pasta restaurant a short walk away, beef carpaccio was excellent, and they have a fairly decent wine list.
Andrés apartment is as advertised. The flat has enough space for 2 people. The windows in the living room allow a lot of sunshine into the area (pets/animals are not allowed so don't let the neighborhood cat inside as you may see it walk by along the outside window sill. The cat is very friendly and one day it followed me all the way to the door. Luckily I managed to get inside without it following me in). The neighborhood is indeed quiet with the occasional dog barks and passing cars as exceptions. You'll definitely hear birds too. You have a couple of blocks to walk to get to restaurants, super markets and public transportation. Although I didn't meet the host in person, Andrés was very responsive, welcoming and open to offering suggestions to accommodate travel needs. He also arranged for a taxi pickup/drop-off to the airport as requested where I was able to meet both Jorge and Alvaro, who were also great themselves. I was having trouble with wifi connectivity and Andrés was quick on getting an IT specialist to remedy the situation. In summary, this is a great place to call home during your stay in San Jose, Costa Rica.
We had a great 2 week stay at Andres and Glorianna's place. The apartment had everything we needed to cook and be comfortable. The residential neighborhood was very friendly and quiet and we were near plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and public transportation. Andres was there to meet us personally and answered all of our questions. His communication with us during our stay was excellent and he even booked a taxi for us from the airport and to the bus when we left. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we return to San Jose.
The apartment is in deed very cozy and quiet spacious. Everything works as described. We did actually sleep very well here! No noise, no cars, just a few neighbor dogs barking.
The climate in Escazu is just perfect, never too hot and never cold.
The situation of the flat is very good. You are at walking distance to 5 supermarkets including a big Walmart and dozens of restaurants. As several buses pass by you never have to wait more than a few minutes to get into San José, where yo can pick a bus to any destination in the country. Or, if you opt for renting a car there is a covered parking space. Cabs are very cheap, use the official red ones!
Ronald the housekeeper can help you at anything, from fixing your car to find a good place to eat or have a beer. Wilma the cleaning lady does a very good job too, the apartment was cleaned once a week which was included in the price.
Andres had arranged to pick us up at the airport which is probably a good idea if you don't know the zone very well.
I can only recommend Andrés and this flat. We stayed for 2 months and had a really good time!
The apartment is wonderful! Andres arranged for a driver to meet me at the airport and he took me right to the apartment that was clean, cozy and tastefully decorated. The apartment was FULLY EQUIPPED with everything one might need in their own apartment, to be comfortable.
During the day, walking to public transportation is simple and convenient (about a 10 min walk), but having a car makes life 100x more fun in Escazu/San Jose.
Overall, my experience was (email hidden)y questions I had were quickly answered by Andres!
Andres was a fantastic host. He was 100% responsive, warm and had great advise for travellers. The apartment is just what you see in the pictures, with a beautiful view of San José, great spaces and perfectly cleaned. San Rafael en Escazú is a high end suburb, so you get the quiet nights in a safe neighbourhood, just 15 minutes cab from the busier downtown and other hot spots of the city. Taxis are always available on a road 7 minutes walk from the apartment.
This is a fantastic apartment. My fiance and I stayed here while in SJ and not only was the neighborhood was safe, the apartment was clean, modern, accommodating and very comfortable. Andres was very communicative as well and dealt with any issues that were raised.
