We had an excellent stay at Casa Laurin B&B before flying out of Costa Rica. The house is just beautiful and very nicely decorated. It feels like home from the first moment. The rooms are big with many shelves, wardrobes and a large comfortable bed. Ginette is a very nice, interesting and helpful host. We could store our luggage there... More

Thank you Brinda for your wonderful review.

I just returned from Costa Rica with my granddaughter, aunt, and a dear friend. Casa Lauin is located outside San Jose in Escazu. Many refer to Escazu as the Beverly Hills of Costa Rica. Casa Laurin is well located within walking distances to many businesses, shops, restaurants, the CIMA hospital (Costa Rica's largest), dentists, and the Multi Plaza Mall. The... More

This is a terrific place to stay. Ginette went above and beyond to help us find a car, get a dentist (as that is what we went to Costa Rica) and just get around. Breakfast was terrific and the location is easy for restaurants, malls and the freeway.
