WOW! What a wonderful experience. We were absolutely pampered by our hostess, Jeanetta! What a wonderful place and a wonderful couple! We were met with a superb meal on arrival and had an excellent breakfast the next morning. The rooms are great and the backyard is beautiful! Jeanetta has such a warm personality and loves to chat!

Jeanetta and staff are so friendly and accommodating that it makes you feel very special. Attention to detail was apparent in the spotless room, the choice of food and the way it was served. Where else would you get a welcome meal after a weary days travelling? Quiet except for nature and the rush of an amazing river. We give... More

This is a little piece of heaven where we were treated with kindness and care. Jeanetta is a warm and delightful person who goes way above and beyond to make sure that everything is done correctly. The staff was also attentive and gracious. We really appreciated our time at La Terraza and hope to return someday!

We came to Grecia to see if it was a retirement place for us. We loved it at first sight and decided to look for property to buy. The owners of the B & B, Jeanetta & Charles, were very helpful in our achieving our goals. They provided us with various people to contact and let us hire their chauffeur... More

La Teraaza B&B is a wonderful place to start and finish a trip to Costa Rica only 30 minutes north of the airport with transportation. Jeanetta and Charles are wonderful hosts and can make arrangements with their driver Carlos to see the sights in the area with no worries. The gardens with hummingbirds and flowers are a great place to... More

We rented a house in San Roque de Grecia from Jenetta and Charles (La Terraza owners). We were traveling with 2 of our children 17 and 10 year olds. When we got there Jenetta and Charles greeted us warmly with a home cooked meal, even though it was late. The house was well furnished and had all of the neccesities.... More

For those who love beautlful gardens; the sound of water trickling over river rock; classy accommodations; friendly innkeepers and great food; La Terraza is the place for you. Charles and Jeanetta Owens are great hosts with a down-home spirit that welcomes you into their family. Every aspect of the grounds, rooms and other facilities are immaculate.

My husband and I vacationed in Costa Rica for a month. Of all the places we stayed, La Terraza was the most pleasant experience. Charles and Jeanneta's hospitality is second to none. A very peaceful and serene enviroment. The breakfast is outstanding. the best in Costa Rica. The sound of the river, the relaxing evenings in the jacuzzi were wonderful.... More

We stayed in La Terraza for 5 days, though initially we planned to spend only 3. Yes, we liked it that much! Don’t be fooled by "B&B": it feels like a 5-star hotel. The room was immaculate, as if from a designer’s catalog. You have everything you need: your own entrance, bathroom, balcony, microwave, coffee maker, satellite TV, and even... More

Located 30 miles from the San Jose (Costa Rica) airport, on the ridges of Greca is a small paradise called La Terraza. The view over the gardens and across the babbling brook was gorgeous. From our room we left the sliding deck door open to hear the babbling brook as we slept. We enjoyed meals on the back porch over... More
