Xaviar and Pilar have a beautiful home where you feel welcome within the first few seconds of arrival. We stayed in the Chile room on the ground floor, it was very comfortable with breezes from the garden. The house is full of history, artwork, antiques and treasures from many places. The grounds are spectacular with flowering shrubs and trees of... More

We spent two nights at this charming B&B and we were not disappointed in any way. The owners were very helpful, the breakfast was first rate, and the property was very well landscaped and charming. Lots of great conversations and we felt as if we were family. Highly recommended.

Xavier and Pilar were absolutely the most gracious and accommodating hosts! Their bed and breakfast was easy to reach off the main road in the Escazu area of San Jose, and walking distance to great restaurants and groceries. The breakfast at Casa de las Tias was abundant and so lunch was easily delayed!! Casa de las Tias is a comfortable... More

We stayed the night here after a day shopping in Escazu, and loved the place and the hosts. The house itself is beautiful and felt like an oasis in the middle of the city, (plus it was great to be able to walk to shops and restaurants). The bed was really comfortable with luxurious bedding and we loved all of... More

Gabriela and Nieves Our stay with Pilar and Xavier simply could not have been more pleasant. They opened their home to us and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The house is absolutely beautiful and the rooms are very clean and well kept. The best part of the stay is waking up the... More

Pilar and Xavier were the most welcoming, helpful, resourceful and colorful folks i have met in a very long while. Their love for their beautiful and most comfortable B&B was felt from the very minute we met. The beautiful grounds, the amazing smells in their gardens and the wonderful foods prepared in their kitchen made for a most memorable adventure.... More

Just pure hospitality. Truly Pilar and Xavier are a fantastic couple in every respect. They opened up their house to the traveler like no other place I've been and share their beauty of humanity like the sights and smells in their garden. With their help it was an absolutely amazing holiday. Mike and Paula

My daughter and her family stay at Casa de las Tias when flying out of San Jose, and told me it was superior to anywhere else they had stayed. I agree and really had a lovely stay. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Kind and gracious couple. The home was delightful and I loved the gardens. I had... More

The house is a wonder to see. I can only dream of one day living in a house like this. The gardens are also beautiful and peaceful. Pilar and Xavier are wonderful hosts, it felt like I was staying with family.
