My flight came in later than planned and Francisco was flexible with this and with me arriving at their house later, which I really appreciated. The house itself is beautiful and large. I was happy with the space of the bedroom. The bedroom is not en-suite, but the bathroom in hallway opposite the bedroom is solely for guest use, as the family use another bathroom. It was great to have the use of a kitchen and Francisco and his Mother were very accommodating with allowing me to prepare my own food etc, which was a real plus for me. There is a good restaurant called Cevichera Jeriel, and I do recommend the Ceviche there. It is around the corner from Francisco's home. Pali supermarket is about a 10-15 minute walk away, which their housemaid kindly showed me where it was. I also had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful, little 1 year old grandson of the house who was at the house for the weekend, and who is simply adorable. On my last night's stay, Francisco kindly drove me to a Tech Repair Celular store in downtown Alajuela, for my mobile phone cracked screen and they replaced the screen, there and then, for a very reasonable price. I was super happy with this. The house is incredibly close to the airport. And flying out, with no traffic at 4am, I arrived at the airport in about 10 minutes. Francisco kindly arranged an Uber for me for my departure.

Francisco was a great host! He made great recommendations and was always available for communication. His place was in an excellent location- within walking distance to many restaurants and a short cab ride away from the airport. His house was beautiful and we felt very safe there!

Spacious, clean, modern apartment, in a quiet and safe neighborhood, with easy access to the airport (an Uber is ~$3).

Francisco is really helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner and helping you get around. He's a traveller himself so he gets it!

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay with Francisco and his mother for almost 7 weeks this summer! The house was in a perfect location near the airport and a quick bus ride into San Jose. Francisco was very helpful with all of my questions and I loved his mother. She didn't speak any English, but I thought it was a great opportunity for me to improve my Spanish. She often made me breakfast or offered coffee, and one time even came home with a pretty headband that she gave to me as a gift! Their house maid always helped me with my laundry and she came a couple times a week, so my bedroom was always clean and she even made my bed when I was too lazy to. Bodis the dog was very friendly and cute. I love this place and I hope to return soon!

Oscar was a very welcoming, patient and helpful host. His house is clean and safe as described and he made sure I had everything I needed. The only downsides were the room is very small, lacks ventilation which made it hot, and the bed quite uncomfortable. For the price and proximity to the airport you can't complain too much though.

Francisco and his family were very kind and respectful. This was a really nice place to stay, the house is big and comfortable and the room I had is large. The house is close to the airport and to the new and very nice food square, the neighborhood was perfect for my trip purposes. I was allowed to prepare my breakfasts and sometimes they share it with me, they are great hosts. Recommended!
