Beautifully nestled on spacious, manicured, secure grounds in the lush hills above Alajuela, my home is off the beaten track, just a 10 minute taxi ride from the San Jose airport and about the same from the city center.
It is quiet and ideal for the independent traveler who wants to escape the crowds and take a few days to relax or have a home base from where you can explore the local culture before starting or continuing your journey.
My house has many modern connivances and guests have access to a comfortable living room and dining room, a full kitchen, a bathroom (sometimes shared with another guest), and a den with a desk as well as a plasma TV with a Wi-Fi connection. If you want to unwind and watch a movie, I have a small DVD collection, and will be happy to provide popcorn.
This is a great place for travelers who work on the internet who need a place to work and for writers who are working on the road.
My front yard is a park-like setting -- a large, green area with a hammock and picnic table. There are mango, cas and other fruit trees you can enjoy in season and use to make juice and salads.
The backyard is a private, enclosed spot where you can read, have lunch or lie out in the sun. It includes a small flower and an herb garden with rosemary, oregano, basil and thyme.
If you are traveling by Tica Bus and are booked to board in Alajuela, we can get you to your bus. Or, if you are traveling Costa Rica by bus we can get you to a local bus stop.
