Two private bedrooms in a beautiful 1940's Art Deco house with original flooring, lighting fixtures and high ceilings. Just 5 minutes walk to the gastronomical neighborhood. Close to parks, museums, nightlife, hospital and public transport. You’ll love our place because of our small garden, the lively neighborhood and our vinyl collection. Also, you'll have free entrance to "El Sótano", the best jazz bar/live music venue in town! Perfect for families, couples or friends.
Welcome and please feel at home in our cosy but spacious house! Our neighborhood Barrio Aranjuez is perfectly located very close to the city center, just between Barrio Escalante and Barrio Amón. All interesting places of San José (the National Theater, the Central Market, the major parks and museums) are within walking distance. If you feel like staying home, you can relax in our hammock and maybe see some (humming)birds in our little garden. In case you encounter some tropical rain, no worries, you can always enjoy it with a hot cup of tea from our roofed terrace, take a hot shower, grab the guitar, play some piano, listen to some music or just read on the couch.
There are two bedrooms available for guests, each with one queen size bed. Apart from your bedroom, which is private, you have your own bathroom (only occasionally shared with other guests). We live upstairs, but you are welcome in all the rooms on the ground floor; the living room, the kitchen and the garden.
We always try to be home when we host guests, and we really like to help you find your way around the city. My boyfriend was born and raised in San José, so he really knows the nice spots and can tell you all about it very passionately. I started my adventure in Costa Rica as a tourist, and have already seen most corners of the country. I am more than happy to give you all kind of tips and travel advice. If you wish we can make you Gallo Pinto, which is the typical Costa Rican breakfast.
If you like art and culture and enjoy going out for a drink at night, you're lucky, because renting our place gives you free entrance to cultural café Amón Solar / jazz bar El Sótano! We are talking about "one of Chepe's most atmospheric nightspots" according to Lonely Planet and No. 1 on Tripadvisor in its ranking of night life attractions in San José. Depending on the day's program, El Sótano offers live music ranging from jazz, blues, rock & roll, punk, funk, soul and R&B, to reggae and ska. The cultural café occasionally also houses workshops, theater, contemporary dance, film screenings, poetry and art galleries. During the day you can come by for a cup of coffee or a delicious organic lunch. In short: a must-see in the capital of Costa Rica, just a few blocks away from our house, and... for our guests there is no entrance fee!
