What a fantastic host!!!!!! Rafael was so kind and helpful. He picked me up from the car rental facility after I opted not to get a car and took me to the store to get a few items. It was so great to talk to him. He is truly a great host and made my trip to Costa Rica very special. The home is in a gated, private community so it is very safe. I would highly recommend. His place is very close to the airport, which is very nice if you've had a long flight. Thanks Rafael!

Rafael was an amazing host and his home was beautiful. He really made us feel welcome and was so kind and helpful. We learned a lot from him and we enjoyed his wonderful hospitality. He even had wine for us and drove us to the airport! We hope to go back and stay with him sometime!

Rafael is a fantastic host! He's incredibly generous and knowledgable - we just had such a good time with him from the moment we arrived. The rooms are very well kept and spacious, the pool is unbelievably beautiful. I definitely recommend this spot, particularly if you're interested in hearing the perspective of someone who's lived in Costa Rica for so long. Hope to see you again soon Rafa!

Thanks, Theo! I became an AirBnB host simply because I enjoy meeting other travelers and sharing with them. Meeting great people like you is what makes hosting so much fun. You are welcome back any time.

Rafa was the perfect guest. Had a blast straight off the plane. Great apartment, super clean, he also cools a dope pasta and meatballs. Was a pleasure to stay in his home, drink some red wine and sit up talking. Even dropped me at the airport. Top dude. Thank you. Zac

I'm easygoing and low key. I enjoy cooking, love to share and I do pay forward. I read a lot, I write and I run every day. I am always ready for conversations about ideas. I'm a sponge for literature, great books and contemporary philosophical writers like the late great Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and Alan Watts.
