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

Really enjoyed staying with Ginette Laurin. She is very welcoming and can give you a practical guide on touring Costa Rica. We really enjoyed going to the Mercado Central with her and buying souvenirs at great prices. This market is not touristy, has reasonable prices and carries all the souvenirs you need. The B&B is fairly close to downtown and... More

We are in the process of building a house in Costa Rica, which necessitates many trips down there. Casa Laurin is my absolute favorite place to stay while there. Why?
