We absolutely loved staying at the bed and breakfast. Laurie helped us with whatever we needed and Miriam was such good help. It was clean with hot water, amazing breakfasts, close to the airport, safe, large with a great balcony, and a river running next to it that made for beautiful noise. We enjoyed our time there so much that...

Laurie and Mirium go beyond the call of duty. The house is magnificant! Laurie is one of the kindest people I have encountered. Her helper, Mirium, is wonderful. Laurie cooked special meals for me due to my extensive dental work. I highly recommend the b&b to everyone! Safe and close to attractions. I hope Laurie is still there in January....

This B&B is well located in a nice neighborhood that is very close to the airport and fairly close to coffee plantations and Poas Volcano. Laurie and Miriam were very sweet and accommodating, making us feel right at home. We stayed here for our last night in the country after 8 days exploring Guanacaste, Tenorio, Arenal and Central Valley. It...

This is a great B&B within a few minutes of the airport. The neighborhood seemed quiet and safe. Laurie was great. She seems to take a personal interest in all her guests. Breakfast was generous (fruit, toast, bacon, eggs and pico gallo). We stayed at another B&B in San Jose at the end of our trip and wished we had...

Stayed here 4 years ago. Glad we stayed here when we passed through San Jose again last month. Laurie, the owner, does a great job making her guests feel welcome. Her place is clean, neat and, artistically decorated. Its very convenient to the San Jose airport. We highly recommend it.

The place is squeaky clean. A rooftop partially covered deck is a grand spot to unwind and share some casual time with other guests. A very comfortable setting. Great spot to enjoy the evening. Although it was unadvertised, we were presented with a tasty three course meal at dinner time.(contributions welcome). Cable t.v. worked well. Owner, Laurie, could not possibly...
