I cannot recommend the Secret Garden more. Rick and friends made us feel right at home, couldn't have asked for a better anniversary. Rick knows all the best places and people. Wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back.

My extended visit to Secret Garden was the best ever! The comforts of home, yet complete privacy made my time there totally priceless. The location was superb. Easy access to restaurants, and downtown area, as well as to and from airport. I felt very safe and secure and the host was most gracious. The breakfast was fabulous. I cannot wait... More

This sweet oasis in a hectic city is a delight to which I'll travel every time I'm in San Jose. In December I'll return for my fifth stay. Ric is an unique host who quickly eases every guest, if they are open to the experience, into a comfortable vibe that encircles the Secret Garden. And the garden is a delight.... More

Going to Ric’s Bed and Breakfast, The Secret Garden, is like going to a friend’s house. From the time you arrive, Ric makes you feel like family, and he means it! I have stayed there many times, and it is always a treat. I enjoy sitting in his awesome backyard, especially for breakfast when the sun comes out, it is... More

I'm afraid if too many people find out about it, he won't have room for me! My trip to Costa Rica for dental work (which might have been miserable) was made wonderful by my stay at Ric's Secret Garden. As a single woman traveling alone, I was looking for a place to stay that was not only close to my... More

This was my first stay at Secret Garden. When I met Ric, I felt like I had known him all my life. He is a great host with wonderful stories and obviously just loves what he does. The room was well appointed and the garden enchanting. Even the dog Snickers is part of the home-like atmosphere. There was an ample... More

I have stayed here many times over the past 7 years and have always had a fantastic time. Ric always makes sure everyone has a wonderful time. This is my first choice to recommend to friends. All of my friends stay with Ric also. This is a very safe place to stay in a city that can be quite noisy,... More
