A change in our family's vacation plans left us needing a place to stay for 2 nights near SJO airport. The property owner, Monica, responded immediately to our request to rent her lovely home. The house is beautiful with a breathtaking backyard. It is located in a gated country club neighborhood, adjacent to the golf course. SJO airport is a few minutes away. Upscale shopping, including a grocery store, is within walking distance. The house is in a gated community, very near the 24 hour security guard's post. The house and driveway are completely fenced in and include a monitored security system. There was enough space to accommodate our party of 2 married couples and 3 teenagers comfortably. We highly recommend this property and would stay there again.

Hi Lisa, The location of our house is renowned for its low humidity and cool evenings thus we have never needed fans or A/C Unfortunately the house was closed up when you arrived so it was Sure to be warm. We normally have Isabelle there to welcome our guests. I believe the change of plans put us at a slight disadvantage. ( never happened before) We have new screens being installed so next time you come it will be perfect!

We enjoyed our stay at Monica's house! The house is lovely, clean and elegantly decorated with plenty of space in both the bedrooms and the shared living areas! The beds and showers were very comfortable, which is not always easy to find when traveling! The pool was great and we enjoyed sharing our meals as a family, on the back porch! The kitchen was lacking absolutely nothing. And the house is located in a secure neighborhood, with a friendly guard just feet away from the house entrance! We were so thankful for her attention to anything that we needed! Monica was always available directly for questions! The manager and house keeper were both amazingly sweet and helpful and we look forward to staying here again, upon our return to San Jose! This home is an oasis in the city! It is close in, making access to the city and surrounding areas, easy- yet it's not in the depth of the city- making it very peaceful. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay near San Jose!

We stayed at Monica's beautiful home for three weeks ( 3 adults, 1 child and a new born). We live in Pavones and came to San Jose to have a home birth:) It was a beautiful sanctuary to bring a new baby into the world! The yard was gorgeous, avocado tree, beautiful cactus and a refreshing pool. The house was spacious, clean and had everything you need! We cooked every meal in house and there wasn't one thing we were missing! The rooms were super comfortable and the bathrooms spacious! Beautiful local woods throughout the house. House is secure with locks and gate. Neighborhood is great for walking and 5 minute drive to grocery store and amazing gourmet shop with local cheeses, eggs, veggies and organic meats. Monica was amazing at answering all of my questions and beyond accommodating. Isabelle, the housekeeper, keeps the house super clean, cooks wonderfully and can answer any questions you might have. We go through San Jose every couple months and will definitely be back! This is a gem in the middle of the concrete jungle! Pictures are very accurate, however, even better in real life! We are beyond grateful to have found this house and for all of Monica's help!

Monica's house is indeed beautiful, and the pics do not do it justice. My daughter arrived before we did, and this was accommodated in a very unexpected, but much appreciated way. Isabelle was a doll and took great care of us, preparing grand breakfasts on weekday mornings, and keeping the house in tip top shape. We very much enjoyed relaxing on the lanai after our daily adventures around Costa Rica. The master bedroom is gigantic, with plenty of closet space. The neighborhood is upscale, and very different than the surrounding areas. Monica made sure we had everything we needed, and checked in several times during our stay. There is a plaza with several restaurants and a market close by, which was very convenient. I feel very lucky to have found this house for our family's trip, and would certainly stay there again in the future!!!

My family and I stayed at this home near San Jose for 3 months. We LOVED it! We looked at other properties in the area and you will NOT find a yard like this anywhere- it is uniquely fantastic. Monica went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

We live in The Washington D.C Metro Area.
My siblings and I inherited this one-of-a-kind, gorgeous home from our parents a few years back and we love to vacation in Cariari and have been coming here for vacation for over twenty years.
We try to spend as much time in Costa Rica as possible. This Central location near the Juan Santamaria airport allows visitors to conveniently drive to beaches and explore the beautiful country.
We have spent many years in Costa Rica, bringing our children and their cousins every chance we have.The house has every convenience of home except it is in a Tropical Paradise! There have been vacations when we have just stayed at the house to enjoy the pool, golf and all the sports and outdoor living! We enjoy golfing and have beautiful views of the Cariari Golf Course. This area is known for its sunny climate, low humidity and cool evenings.. Too much to tell you about so you will have to see it to believe. . .
