About this listing
Ideal for first and last night stays is a James Bond style house with 4 bedrooms. 20 minutes from the Int Airport we can provide transport, food and a laundry service. Honeymoon suit has a double bed with an en-suit bathroom.
This is a 70s James Bond style open-plan designed mountain-top house with impressive panoramic views over the whole Central Valley from east to west including downtown San Jose, the National Stadium, the International Airport etc. You can see almost everything in the Central Valley and are perched high above the rest of San Jose on top of the world in a very quiet, private and exclusive setting. This is one of the best views and even better at night, simply stunning.
There are two living areas on different levels, both with interesting bronze chimney stack features with gas fired fireplaces. The kitchen in the heart of the house also enjoys the impressive views and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. This combination creates a great atmosphere and a unique style which many have likened to a 70's James Bond style house, so it i is ideas an ideal place to recover from your flight and relax with plenty of space. We have a a music center and speakers throughout the house from where you can play your own music.
We have an area which can be converted into a private cinema as we have a projector and giant 150" screen, excellent for watching films or sporting events. Or this area can be used as a dancing area or even to put on a show.
There is a large terrace and balcony with a hot-tub( when the booking is for just one room we reserve the right to make an additional charge of $15 for the use of the Hottub) and exuberant gardens to enjoy during the day or in the evening, enjoy hanging out and eating and drinking outside, whilst watching the rest of the San Jose Central Valley down below. We also have the relaxing company of Luna, a beautiful, calm and affectionate Harlequin Great Dane who lives at the house and welcomes all new guests.
Vibrant and packed with Victorian mansions, Costa Rica's rowdy, bustling capital was built on the profits of the coffee trade and working "golden bean" plantations still surround the city. Try freshly roasted local beans at Mercado Central. For shinier gold, visit the Museo del Oro. Many renovated landmarks now house stylish hotels. Usually viewed as a hub, rather than a destination, nightlife is concentrated in Spanish village-inspired El Pueblo. Don't miss the elegant 1897 National Theater.
The official addressing system in Costa Rica is slightly different then many countries. (no street names and door numbers). It is a good idea to have a map and/or GPS with you. We can send you address / GPS co-ordinates upon confirmation of your booking.
Actually they are not house rules but small reminders, the same as in your home. Turning off the lights and locking up before going to sleep. For your security and maintenance of the house, there is a permanent member of staff in an outside garden room.
If guests have not chosen a food option during their stay, the kitchen may be unoccupied and it is the responsibility of the guests who use the kitchen to do their best to keep it clean and make their own coffee etc. if there is no coffee or tea, please kindly inform the staff.
The fridge is for shared use and we request the same observation as the rest of the kitchen in order to maintain cleanliness.

I left England when was 18 and hitch-hiked through Europe,Africa to India overland which was a life forming experience,. I left with about $100 and returned 2 yrs later ..I had little money I stayed with local people ,or hostels or slept rough whatever I needed to do. Later as a professional investment consultant I have lived in Hotels throughout Latin America for nearly 20 years. I can tell you the best way to travel is not always in Hotels ...experience living and sharing with the local way of life ,with real people it is a far richer more rewarding experience. I believe in the concept of integrated tourism this is what we offer it is a much better way to travel ...
