We had an amazing experience here. Our hosts Darylle and Kanti were the best hosts I've had to date. Darylle was extremely helpful in providing us directions to the place and making sure we were prepared beforehand. Upon arrival they were incredibly welcoming – providing homemade cookies, tea and great conversation. If you are looking to learn, relax and connect... More

After reading the hundreds of positive reviews on this site as well as on AirBnB, we booked Casa Abierta without any hesitation. We knew that we would be walking into a beautiful home (the photos don't come close to showing its beauty.) However, we never expected to meet such wonderful people who have become our great friends. Our hosts picked... More

After a 2-week tour of Costa Rica, we stayed a few days longer to explore the culture in San Jose. Darrylle welcomed us with a smile and we felt at home with him, Kanti, and Maria for 3 days. We enjoyed interesting conversation, the freshest food, and a spotless room. Having spent several hours reading reviews before choosing Casa Abierta,... More

I stayed at Casa Abierta on my recent visit to Costa Rica. Casa Abierta is centrally located close to downtown, the mall, supermarket and ATMs, in a safe neighborhood in a gated community. I was picked up at the airport and was pleasantly surprised to find myself in a house that felt like home right from the start. The house... More

What a wonder amidst the bustle of San Jose. Darrylle's attention to decor and cleanliness is impeccable. The rooms are pleasant. The house is inviting and very pleasant to be in. The garden exquisite. And Darrylle himself is an attentive, interesting, and charming host. You will leave replenished and nurtured.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Casa Abierta. Darryle's home was a beautiful, calm oasis in the city of San Jose. Darryle met us each evening with tea and delicious homemade cookies, and we were able to unwind while sitting in the living area that opened to a tropical patio garden, complete with trickling fountain, the sounds of various...

This was our little oasis in San Jose. Crisp and clean, fresh and lovely, can describe all of the amenities, the room and the house. Darryle, the host, shows great calmness, as well as, a wealth of knowledge of the area tailored for any traveler. We parked our car in the secure private area, making it easy to drive in... More

An amazing host and now a new friend. If you want a hub in San Jose, this is indeed the place. Casa Abierta is an EXCELLENT site - one that will be as much of an experience as the city of San Jose. Darrylle is a great host and also a great human being. Beyond words on what you can... More
