Guests often search for this popular amenity
Located in a newly remodeled vintage two-level house, this room is the largest in the property. Its many windows make it naturally illuminated throughout the day, and it is literally invaded with a cool breeze when its windows are opened. From this room you get a good view of the country's Central Mountain Range and many of its volcanoes. Roller shutters keep the city lights off at night. Mini bar available. A key safe is used to have direct access to the accommodation.

The space
Located a few blocks from the theater area, the neighborhoods with more cultural and gastronomic activity in the capital (Amón, Otoya, Escalante), and La California, one of the nightlife centers for young subcultures, the house offers an excellent starting point to explore the city. Several of the country's museums, including two of its most important: the Gold Museum and the Jade Museum, as well as the National Theater, the Mercado Municipal de Artesanías (Handicraft Market), multiple supermarkets, bars and restaurants, banks, car rental agencies and hospitals, are within a 10/15 minute walk. Due that the house is located in the heart of the city, expect the typical noise of a city during peak hours.

Where you’ll be

San José, Costa Rica

Barrio Luján: one of the last neighborhoods in the capital with the days of yore “neighborhood life” vibe. You will find the traditional Costa Rican businesses of yesteryear, such as butcher and cobbler shops, greengrocers and bakeries. It has a particular mix of wooden Creole, Victorian Creole, Spanish-American neo-colonial, and Art Deco architecture. Points of interest are: the Barrio Luján Bakery (one of the oldest bakeries in the country), the church, the fire station, in addition to their houses. You can see pretty much all of it in less than an 1 hr walk.

Chinatown: embedded in the Barrio de la Soledad (name after the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Soledad) and the González Víquez neighborhood, this is the first Chinatown in a Central American city. Recently created, inaugurated on December 5, 2012, it covers an area of 12 blocks and offers a variety of oriental supermarkets, shops and restaurants. As its main entrance lies in the 2nd avenue , it is an mandatory route between the house and the very heart of the city.

Vivo en el límite entre Barrio Luján –uno de los barrios más pintorescos del centro de la cuidad- y el recientemente creado Barrio Chino.

During your stay

I work from home, usually during the afternoon and evening hours. If I'm working, I usually do it from my room, although sometimes I also do it from the living room. During the mornings I do the cleaning of the house. Although I like independent guests, I also like to meet them, so I will gladly share a coffee or a beer. I am here to serve you, so I will help you with everything I can. My mission is for you to enjoy your stay at all times. Please, feel like at home.
