Jeanetta is like a grandmother to my family and I. This is a great place to sneak away from the hustle and bustle of San Jose. My favourite place to visit in Costa Rica with out a doubt. Christine's coffee and gallo pinto every morning combined with Jeanetta's charm and humour makes for a great vacation. Highly recommended!

Jeanetta was on top of our every need and was able to provide us with gluten free breakfasts and transportation to and from town, to and from Jaco, and then on to the airport for our return trip. Her planning for our stay began well before we arrived with a phone call to us so that she would be sure... More

We stayed at La Terraza in May and Jeanetta and Christina were wonderful. They are very helpful with directions and Christina is a wonderful cook. The breakfast was to order and the coffee was the best I have had in Costa Rica. It's a little off the beaten track but beautiful gardens and a comfortable bed.

Jeanetta is absolutely amazing. You honestly feel like you're at home with family while at the guest house. Jeanetta took great care of me and my college aged son and travel companion and provided numerous opportunities for us to meet and greet native Costa Ricans who made our trip not only fun but educational. The house and the grounds are... More

Stayed for 5 days and I would certainly recommend this lovely oasis to anyone. Jeanetta is lovely, as are her wonderfully attentive staff. Everywhere she recommended to eat was fantastic. Toured the rainforest, volcano, beach and coffee plantation. Will go back again to just relax or take Spanish lessons because I'd have a great place to stay.

My friends and I had a wonderful time during our stay at La Terraza. It felt like home away from home. Jennetta's hospitality was that of a mother's delight welcoming the arrival of relatives. The culinary skills of Christina was awesome! La Terraza is a charming B&B with spectacular tropical garden landscape. It's hard to believe this jewel sits in... More

Jeanetta's B&B is a great getaway that is close to the mountain region where Volcanoes, waterfalls, and local flair abide. We thoroughly enjoyed our place as we had wine on our terrace, local cheese and strawberries, and a lovely chat with the energetic and magnetic Jeanetta Owens. Her energy infiltrates the place with an energy of beauty and power that... More

We had a great time at La Terraza! The grounds are spectacularly beautiful - looks like a park. You can sit on your private deck and look at the grounds. The staff is attentive. The rooms are clean and very comfortable down to the DVD's and books in the rooms. The food is great (Christina can cook anything!!!) and Jeanetta,... More

La Terraza is a hidden gem. We wanted to just chill out for ten days and this was the perfect place to do so. Christina keeps everything moving smoothly and does so unobtrusively. Since this was our 4th or 5 trip to Costa Rica we'd previously visited many of the landmarks. The gardens are beautifully maintained. The stream which runs... More
