Ginette is such a great hostess and great breakfast provider we consider her B & B our home place whenever we are in the San Jose area. She is a wonderful source of information for all of her guests and always goes the extra mile to make one feel important and welcome. All of her rooms are spotlessly clean and... More

I was first referred to Ginnette and Casa Laurin by my dental office as a great place to stay during the procedures. Ginette was so kind and helpful, her home beautiful and very comfortable, it was a wonderful treat to be there! 3 weeks later my husband and I stayed again at Casa Laurin (more dental work), and have decided...

Or maybe Breakfast & Bed. Ginnette took care of us, great care of us. The place is lovely. And her breakfast, well, let's just say we'll be back there for certain. We brought a few extra people with us, and she actually set them up with a room at a nearby place, and took the time to walk us over.... More

I just returned from spending 2 weeks at Casa Laurin, while I was in Escazu for dental work. I chose this place for the location to my dental clinic, I was able to walk to it in less than 10 minutes.As I discovered I was near absolutely everything. When I first arrived, Ginette greeted me at the door and showed... More

We made two very pleasant stays at the Casa Laurin where we appreciated the location, hospitality and quality accommodation. We stayed in the two superior chambers that are carefully designed and equipped. Ginette, and her replacement Ginette!, were a great source of information and they did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

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
