El apartamento esta re bien ubicado, en un barrio tranquilo cerca de la universidad y con muy buena locomoción hacia el centro de San José.
Hay tiendas, supermercado, banco, gasolinera y cajero automático cerca. El apartamento es muy cómodo, amplio y limpio y esta perfectamente equipado, todo es nuevo y funciona muy bien. Esteban nos recibió muy amablemente y nos dio la indicaciones de la casa, todo funcionó perfectamente.
Esteban's apartment was perfect for our needs. The neighborhood was quiet, we felt very safe and a grocery store was close enough to walk to, but not a short walk. It was exactly as the photos appear. The apartment was clean and our request for additional towels was met quickly. Thanks for having us, we'll be back!
Host: Esteban was there to meet me but did not respond to a text or email later in my two week stay.
Apartment: This is not an apartment. It's a house with three studios. The walls are incredibly thin and you can hear everything going on all over the building. One wall is entirely glass but there are missing pieces so mosquitos come in every evening and you can hear the very loud noise from the road. Also, there were mice. I saw them every evening and had to clean droppings up off the kitchen counters in the morning.
Location: Five blocks from the main road to catch buses or taxis. $4 taxi ride into San Jose. There was a supermarket about seven blocks away.
I do not recommend this place right now. If the owner chose to fix the windows, get rid of the mice and do some renovations, then it might be okay.
Esteban's apartment is very stylishly appointed and in a quiet region of the suburb of San Pedro, the city's University district. The furniture is all very comfortable, the space full of light. It was a lovely ace to spend four days in the city. My only complaint would be that the hot water seems to have been turned off our last two days there, or else had always been used up before we tried to take showers.
Staying in this apartment was wonderful! Esteban's neighbor, Carlos, was a godsend. He drove us to the grocery store, provided great conversation, and advised us on how to get around San Jose. There were kitchen supplies, soap, and towels waiting for us when we got there. The taxi driver knew exactly where the place was from the directions, but we weren't sure how to knock so we ended up asking neighbors and local businesses. We were lost for about an hour. I would recommend asking for specific directions about who will be waiting at the apartment, and how to knock, before you arrive.
We arrived in the middle of the night and took a taxi directly from the airport. We had thought we had arranged with Esteban ahead of time - in fact we had asked him if it was possible to leave a key in a lockbox and he told us not to worry as he would be waiting and there would be no problem. We gave him our flight details - so he knew when we would be arriving. On our way, the taxi driver was nice enough to call Esteban, but no answer. We circled the block about 10 times but, as there are not addresses or street names in Costa Rica, we could only guess what house was his by his description. We called Esteban about 10 times but no answer. We asked 2 security guards and no one knew him. This may have just been a glitch or a one time thing, but our advice is to make sure you call Esteban from the airport so he knows you are coming or set up a more sure way to meet him. 2 days later Esteban did contact us to see why we hadn't turned up, but it was too late, as our taxi driver had to find us another hotel and we had already worked it out directly with airbnb. Good thing we had a wonderful taxista - still cost us about $30 in taxi fare - but at some point he turned off his meter as he drove around town looking for a safe place with vacancy for us.
Great space love the apartment. Small and very cozy great neighborhood very quite. A short walk to the super market Restaurants. we really enjoyed our stay thank you for being such a great host we will defiantly stay again next trip
Great host, good location close to calle de la amargura and other key areas to chill, eat or have fun.
Sehr schönes und stilvoll eingerichtetes Apartment! Küche mit allem was man braucht, sauberes, helles Bad, supergroßes und bequems Bett und ein nicht weniger bequemes Sofa. Und eine gute Waschmaschine zur Mitbenutzung direkt um die Ecke. Dadurch dass es etwas schattiger gelegen ist, ist es in der Wohnung selbst bei Hitze draußen angenehm kühl.
Ich habe mich in den drei Monaten die ich dort gewohnt habe, sehr wohl gefühlt.
Die Wohnung liegt in einer sehr sicheren Gegend und ist sehr ruhig. Auch als Frau alleine also absolut kein Problem. Dabei ist sie sehr zentral gelegen, in fußläufiger Entfernung hat man absolut alles was man zum alltäglichen Leben benötigt, darüber hinaus viele Restaurants, Bars und studentische Kneipen, da sich die Universität direkt um die Ecke befindet. Auch ins Zentrum braucht man mit dem Bus nur ca. 15 Minuten (Und die Busse fahren mindestens im Minutentakt, was nicht überall in San José der Fall ist.)
Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr unkompliziert und freundlich.
Ich kann die Wohnung auf jeden Fall sehr weiterempfehlen.
