This property is a delightful haven away from city bustle, yet reasonably close by taxi to both the airport and the main Tracopa bus station. The layout is very welcoming and calming, as are Laurie and her staff, and I love the vast terrace. I was also pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the climate of San Jose is. The cooked breakfast was a leisurely treat. Highly recommended.

My family and I do not travel outside of USA often. Laurie helped ease my mind by assisting in the planning of our couple days in San Jose. She set up shuttles, tours and meals for us. Laurie and Miriam are amazing. Their hospitality is the best I have ever experienced. Thank you Laurie and Miriam for everything you did, we are so happy to have stayed with you. We feel blessed to have met you both!

Had a fantastic visit made better by the helpful and caring support of Laurie and team! The house is fantastic and convenient. Room was very comfortable with a very real rustic feel for the area. The food for breakfasts held us must of the day and was a delicious combo of local flavors and breakfast favorites. It was everything you want in a local comfortable stay and the true reason why BB BEATS Hotels lack of personality! Thanks we will be back.

Hubby and I stayed for one night in the Royal Suite at the end of July on our return home from the coast. We chose Cariari B&B because it was located near SJO and on the shared shuttle route. The pictures are accurate but can’t truly convey how lovely the house is. Upon arriving late after a long drive, Miriam welcomed us with juice and shared suggestions for dinner within walking distance. After dinner, we met Laurie, the owner, who is delightful and very welcoming. The cat and dogs reminded of us our pets at home. In summary, we enjoyed our overnight stay in the Royal Suite. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and accommodating. We enjoyed the wifi, TV, mini refrigerator, and comfortable bed as well as the access to the balcony and small Romeo & Juliet balcony that overlooks the street. The little alcove outside the room is delightful as is the large balcony with comfortable seating and privacy. The room, and the rest of the house, are beautifully decorated and display fine woodwork and artwork. I wish we’d had more time to explore each room and the gardens. In the morning, we enjoyed an enormous breakfast with Laurie. Miriam is a wonderful cook and asked our preferences before surpassing our every wish. Unfortunately, we did not have time to fully savor the breakfast before the taxi arrived (our fault for not realizing how big the breakfast was). Cariari B&B exceeded our expectations in every way and we plan to stay again when we fly out of SJO. We highly recommend Cariari B&B for a short or long-term stay! *Thank you for reading my review!
