Luis is a very helpful host! Thank you for everything.

Walking distance to great restaurants and bars. Due to the beautiful gardens, Luis's place stays very fresh and cool, despite the heat. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset with beers on his rooftop terrace, and amazing coffee and discussions with Luis on the mid-level garden in the morning. A great place to discover the underloved San Jose. Would recommend.

Amazing Place!!!! Absolutely Beautiful Gardens. Yes, I said Gardens! The owner, Luis, built a three story tropical paradise. Beautiful places to sit and be completely secluded with a beautiful view of the mountains. In addition, Luis is an amazing host. He was so helpful in advising me on the bus system. He let me talk to his brother, a semi-professional climber, who advised me on places to go, stay and adventure. I can't over emphasize how wonderful a place this is.

Luis is is kind and hospitable. His apartments are in a quiet neighborhood within a 5-10 minute walk from some of the cities best coffee shops and bars. I'm convinced this is the best value you will find in San Jose!

Luis is the perfect host and the house is great! Just visiting the rooftop terrace is worth the money. Location is also really good, lots of restaurants less than 5min walking distance and even the city center is about 20-25min away by foot. Neighborhood is also safe. Just make sure you have the address and location scouted perfectly, we had some problems finding the place late at night.

Luis was a great host with lots of information about the area as well as many subjects regarding Costa Rican history and politics! The place is about a 15 minute walk to downtown which worked out pretty well for us and I think resulted in quieter nights. Thanks for having us!
