About this listing

Ideal spot for visits downtown and day trips to national parks, volcanoes, beaches, etc.
On quiet street near large green area of the UCR Sports Facilities. Shops and buses nearby. People always enjoy the peace they find here, for work or leisure.

The space

A cozy place with a unique as well as practical design. Nice and luminous atmosphere full of harmony: just being here will make you feel good.
My home is very comfortable for 1 or 2 guests. Main bedroom has a twin bed (140x200cm). Single bedroom has a 1-person bed (100x200cm).

Guest access

You have access to any part of my home and the green space at the front. This house is one of 4 on the same property, so we share the entrance from the street, the garden and parking space. You are invited to use the compost bin for organic waste.

Interaction with guests

I will receive you to be sure you arrive, to show you the house and its details, and to answer your questions. I will be staying in a house nearby and you can contact me whenever you need. I can also give you some ideas and advice for trips and things to see and do and we can eventually share some activities if you like.
And... you are welcome to come along with me and try any of my Qigong-Taichi classes!

Other things to note

There is always some space on the street to park your car. Since it is a private, dead-end street there aren't many cars or people going around. It is safe to park your car out there.

Ineke's home worked out beautifully for me. I was visiting my daughter at the University of Costa Rica and the location was perfect. I ran in the Park across the street everyday, and never felt unsafe. The house had everything I needed and was bright and charming. I would definitely stay there again!

I absolutely fell in love with Ineke's home. The space is a delight. There is beautiful lighting, homemade textures, a decorator's touch everywhere you look and feel. I could feel such calming and peaceful energy. Ineke wants you to be totally at home and she succeeds outstandingly. She produced maps for me that were excellent and the Internet was superb. I did not want to leave such a special space and hope to be able to come back again. Ineke herself is a very rare and special person. I feel honored to have stayed in her home and to have met her.

I can say without a doubt that everything was just fine. If you are going to UCR then this is the right place, you just have to walk for less than one minute. The house is very well located. The only thing was a little negative is that WiFi connection was not good, I went for academic purpouses therefore I needed a faster connection... beside that, perfect. Ineke´s son received me at the airport and he also took me back. They even bought some things for breakfast that were very usefull. I totally recommend to stay at Ineke´s house...

Thank you so much! And yes, we are really sorry about the WiFi connection, too bad we did not hear from you when you were having problems. Normally it is not that bad but anyway we are looking for options to improve it!

We stayed at Ineke's home for 4 weeks while studying Spanish. It is in walking distance to UCR. Ineke is a really special lady, and her home is so cute, comfortable and cozy. She was always available if we needed anything, but also gave us our space and privacy. The house is filled with sky lights and cute decor. For a small fee, Doña Marta came in an cleaned for us weekly and she was awesome! So worth it. She even did our laundry, even though I never would have expected her to. We were really happy we chose to stay here and it really felt like home. We miss it, and Ineke, already!

We very much enjoyed staying in Ineke's house. Everything was there that we needed and it was so nicely decorated and felt very safe. She welcomed us and told us where everything was and how things operated. There was also a good tip sheet on getting around town and seeing things. The busline was very convenient to downtown and all the attractions. Taxis were always available and she has a good airport driver she can line you up with. The weather was great. Cool nights and warm days. Didn't even need a fan. Loved sitting out in the courtyard both day and night.

Ineke was a wonderful host, she made us feel very "at home" and was very helpful in every way. Her home is a beautiful and safe haven, light and spacious, elegantly decorated, and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. The University Sports Park just across the road was a blessing.

My stay at Ineke's place for just over three weeks was exceptionally good. Apartment: not fancy, but very comfortable, very practical. It had everything I needed as an individual traveler, and it has plenty of space even for a couple traveling with one or two small children. Location: very safe and removed a bit from San Jose center, but still very convenient to get there by taxi or bus (10 minutes). Also, it is located next to the sports facilities of the University of Costa Rica (UCR), which was very nice for walking and running. It was also great to have a green area nearby, with a bunch of birds that I'd never seen before. It is located in an area with a bunch of other small houses, so there are other people around keeping an eye on things, which adds to the sense of safety. Finally, it is also on a dead-end street, which reduces traffic right in front of apartment. Host: At first I met Ineke's son, Chris, as Ineke was traveling. He was very welcoming and very helpful. I had already spent a bunch of time in San Jose, so I didn't need general orientation, but rather he gave me a bunch of specific ideas about the area. Ineke and Chris had also put together an information packet that included a bunch of very helpful information and ideas. They are great people, who are always there to help you when and if you need it. They are just a phone call or an email away. I cannot recommend Ineke's place highly enough. I had a great experience staying there and would do so again.

Tengo muchos años de vivir en Costa Rica, soy holandesa-tica.
Practico Qigong-Taichi, tambíen lo estoy enseñando. Si quiere probar una clase o participar durante su estadía: muy bienvenido! Hay diferentes horarios y según el clima practicamos afuera en la zona verde o adentro en un saloncito. Me gusta mucho compartir y aplicar estas sabidurías antiguas en la vida diaria.
