It is in a six floor building that has been in the family for almost fifty years now, it used to be an office complex and for many years it was the home of the offices for a very prestigious international bank. After the bank Left, I decided to change the purpose of the building and remodel it for living purposes, Studio #404 is one of the twelve apartments that make up for the condominium.

The laundry room which you will have access is in the third floor, please if you need to use it ask me before hand so I can check availability, the keys are in the kitchen drawer and detergent under the sink.
In this same laundry room you will find the big garbage can for you to leave your trash there.
Interaction with guests
Feel free to ask me for all the instruction you need prior to your booking and arrival.
I love to meet all my guests when they arrive for check in and show them around, If I can not be there my daughter or the cleaning lady, will be the ones in charge.
If you have to leave early in the morning there is a drop box where you can leave the keys, it is outside, you will find a small lid to the left of the main iron door. Take into consideration that check out is at 11 am, unless we have agreed different.
I will be just a message or phone call away just in case anything comes up and you need to contact me. I very much appreciate guests to communicate to me if they feel uncomfortable about something or if they find that what I offer is different than what you expected.
Other things to note
The building is very secure but you do have to pay special attention on always keeping all doors locked, it is a condominium rule.
There is a community laundry room in the third floor available for you upon request, so if you need to do your laundry please let me know.
The building is located in the heart of the city and there is lots of traffic and people around the neighborhood during the day, especially on weekdays, at night San Jose tends to feel more lonely.

I am a native Tica!! Born and raised in Costa Rica, in my teen´s my whole family, Mom, Dad and their 9 children moved to Madison, Wisconsin for a period of three years , so we could all learn to speak english, thanks to this beautiful experience I am fully bilingual.
I have always loved to travel, my first time on a plane was when a had just turned seven and ever since I fell in love with the world, I describe my self, and always tell my three children, that we are "citizens of the world" and as such we should not miss the opportunity to explore as many places as we can, but always keeping in mind this : " The most important thing when traveling is not the destination but our attitude and openness to live new experiences and perceive and respect all different cultures and beliefs ".
I love trekking and mountaineering, so I have had the experience to see my country as green as it !! ... I have explored the mountains when it gets all muddy and also when it is dry and very hot and wish to arrive soon to the cold waters of our beautiful rivers and splendid waterfalls. Each one of my experiences has been different and breath taking, If you are coming to Costa Rica to explore our mountains and rivers I will be more than happy to talk to you about the beautiful places I have been . Also love the sea and feel very proud to say that we have many of the most beautiful beaches in the world and as a good traveler I have been to many of them. When I was little it took two day to go to Playa Samara, we could only go in 4x4´s because there were many rivers on the way, there was no electricity and we slept in a "rancho".
I have been an Airbnb host and also a guest, having both experiences I make all my efforts so that those who choose to stay in one of my apartments will have a nice experience of their stay and their journey thorough San Jose.
