My wife, Trish, and I spent the last six days of our Costa Rica-Nicaragua vacation at Casa Laurin. Our hostess, Ginette, was uniformly wonderful, helpful and quite knowledgable about the area. She arranged an excellent 13-hour tour for us, including pick up and drop off, to visit the Poas Volcan, Doka coffee plantation and La Paz Falls, that came off... More

This was my husband's first trip to Costa Rica and my second. We had some important matters to attend to concerning our property there which we were unable to accomplish from the States. We knew absolutely nothing about San Jose. Ginette made all of our rental car arrangements and gave excellent "insider" advice. We were picked up from the airport... More

In January my husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for him to have dental work done with Dr. Mario. Two B&Bs were suggested for us in San Jose. I chose Casa Laurin primarily by the reviews on TripAdvisor and did I ever make the right choice! Ginette is the owner and she will become your friend if you spend... More

We've stayed at many B&B's on our travels and have always enjoyed the experience. However Casa Laurin is our very favorite for making you feel at home. It's very comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere and our room was perfect. Ginette left no stone unturned to making sure we had everything we needed and by the end of our stay we... More

Casa Laurin was pure perfection for our family of three. Ginette prepared personalized breakfasts daily which were delicious and served in a relaxed dining room. The pool area was a perfect site in the evening with a glass of wine. We followed her suggestion to take a tour instead of renting a car and were VERY happy we did so.... More
