Carlos, as a host, he couldn't have been better! His direction, guidance and responsiveness is superb. We had a couple issues that he responded to and resolved very promptly. While San José, on the whole, isn't much of a "quiet" city, this place in Guadalupe is quieter than most others - you can't escape street noise, but being down the block from a main road helps a lot. Speaking of location, there are a lot of great places within walking distance: Typical American fast food - KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut; Typical Costa Rican cafes - one at the end of the block, corner of the main street, open for breakfast and lunch; A grocer in a shopping plaza - clothes, electronics, video rental; A bank; A barber; bus stops; WalMart is also only 100m away. The Majority of Downtown San José is walkable, and you can get to The National Park [Av 1 @ Calle 15] in ~10 min walk or a $2 taxi. The internet and electricity here were very reliable. The kitchen was more than sufficient: double hot plate, fridge, silverware, plates, cups, drip coffee maker. There is a washer and dryer [dryer added at our request. thank you, Carlos] if you need to do laundry. If you're not familiar with Costa Rica, it's very normal for the only location of a residence that has hot water to be the shower; this is the case at this property, but it shouldn't "make-or-break" your decision to stay here.
Location is good if you'll be around downtown San José or San Pedro. There is a Walmart which very convenient. It is a quiet neighborhood.
Carlos, you made our trip to Costa Rica perfect. From the little touches like fresh exotic flowers to coffee in the kitchen, your attention to detail was very appreciated. The description and pictures of the apartment was exactly right. Our stay in your apartment immersed us for too short a time into the San Jose life, and we will definately return. Thanks for a very memorable trip, and thank you for becoming our first Costa Rican friend. We highly recommend Carlos and his apartment.
