Everything about Casa de las Tias shines, from the beautiful woodwork in the house to the wonderful gardens that form the setting. Pilar and Xavier are gracious hosts as well. This B&B is so much more than simply a place to rest, well worth going a slight bit off the beaten path.

Xavier & Pilar (the owners) have made Casa de las Tias the ideal place to stay when visiting San Jose. Their B&B is cozy, beautifully decorated with many of the articles they have picked up from their travels around the world & their hospitality is superb! Xavier was extremely helpful from the initial reservation & throughout our stay (we stayed... More

I can't say enough about this charming Bed and Breakfast located in a convenient section of Escazu where it is quite easy to walk to restaurants and stores or to catch a cab or bus. Owners are hands on, accommodating in every way. The architecture of this small B&B is that of typical old Costa Rica and is filled with... More

When our shuttle bus turned from the shabby, razor-wired, hot & sweaty confusion of San Jose's streets into Casa de las Tias' shady lane our fellow passengers in the shuttle gasped with surprise and pleasure. At the end of the flowered lane lies Casa de las Tias -- a Secret Garden that calls to mind charmed summers in the Gulf... More

We stayed at Casa de las Tias twice during our time in Costa Rica from January to February 2015. The B&B came highly recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. The home is gorgeous and tucked back far enough from the road that traffic noise is nonexistent, even with the windows open. After spending one night in downtown San... More

Thank you Pilar and Xavier for a pleasant stay with you in your lovely home. Your kindness and help was so appreciated, along with your wonderful breakfasts & lovely conversations. We still can't believe how it was so quiet & secluded from noise of the traffic. We slept so sound in the king size bed! Loved that large room with... More

My sister and I started (and ended) our Christmas vacation trip staying with Pilar and Xavier. They went out of their way to assist us with information and transportation options while we were preparing for our trip. The house is very warm, welcoming and comfortable. Each room has it's own very large bathroom and the rooms are very clean and... More

The hosts Pilar and Xavier are meticulous about details.... my bedroom had everything one could want or need. I even a nice balcony where I could relax on fine rattan furniture. As an artist, I like the character and history of a wooden structure. Any guest will be taking photos of this charming, cottage-style B&B set amidst tranquil gardens. Sure,... More

A fabulous combination of great hosts and a beautiful setting. The house is impeccably clean, beautifully furnished, and a quiet oasis in a busy city. Xavier and Pilar made us feel very welcome. Both are truly multi-lingual, so communication in English was never a problem. An excellent breakfast was served in their garden, and our hosts were very willing to... More
