Ginette is the hostess with the mostest! Great house and location but what makes this so special is Ginette who takes care of all your needs, handling reservations, appointments, and providing you with the best driver who speaks fluent English and is so accommodating. We all became great friends.

Every year in November, I travel to Costa Rica and stay at Casa Laurin before heading out to other places. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. I always feel at home in my room or sitting in the main living area next to the pool. Taxi drivers know this location and if not, it is easy to find.... More

This is a great B&B to stay near San Jose. Ginette was so nice. I had to stay 7 days and if it was possible, would have liked to stay much longer ! I will recommend this B&B to all my friends without any problem !

Ginette runs a very good operation giving you personal attention that makes you feel part of the family. As many other guests, we were visiting for some dental treatment (as this is not near tourist attractions). The area is quiet and secure. There are many restaurants within walking distance as well as a Wall-Mart. There is also a local bank... More

After exploring several options on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay with Ginette when my husband had dental work in October. We definitely made the right choice. Ginette welcomed us and directed us to a nearby restaurant for a much needed meal after a long day of travel. She helped us with banking and shopping and even went with us... More

We stayed with the lovely Ginette in August 2014. Ginette is very warm and welcoming, there is nothing she can do for you that is too much. We were pleasantly surprised at how helpful she was, she has an excellent knowledge of San Jose and recommended a great place for us to go for my boyfriend's birthday while we were... More

We stayed overnight before a flight out of San Jose with friends who had been here many times. Ginette was extremely welcoming. We appreciated the refrigerator for guests, the computer to check in, & the details including the instruction booklet in the room. Since it was raining & we could not walk to restaurants nearby, she helped us order take-out... More

I had 22 days to prepare for a 6 month stay in Costa Rica. One of the best decisions I made was to start my adventure by staying at Casa Laurin B&B. Ginette was so welcoming. She had her driver pick us up at the airport. No small task with 4 people, 9 suitcases+ 2 working dogs. Took all the... More

Ginette's B&B is a very nice and well located B&B to discover San José and its surroundings on your trip to Costa Rica. The rooms are very clean and nicely arranged, and some of them have a lovely view of the Central Valley mountains, which you appreciate coming home after shopping! (The shopping centers are not far away.) Ginette welcomes... More

Our stay at the B & B was one week (Aug. 6-13/14). Everything was wonderful. The food was excellent; the building was very, very clean. Ginette and her staff made us feel like we were best friends. You could not ask for anything better. It was better than a home away from home! Ginette is very informative. She loves Costa... More
