The space

Small Industrial Style studio apartment perfect for a couple of days stay in San Jose or it can also be great if you plan a longer stay.
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.
It is small, very cozy and it has everything you will need for a pleasent stay, it's fully equipped with all the amenities , kitchen, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, toaster, you will find all you need to cook, there is even a screw cork in case you are in a mood for some wine.
It has a full size bunk bed and a pull over couch, which can accommodate comfortably an adult or a small child. There is a dinning table which sits three very comfortably.
It has access to internet and digital television with a 24 " TV, you can count with hot water and a very nice and comfortable shower with body gel and shampoo. The apartment is Located on the fourth floor, on the Street side of the building, and there is an elevator.

Guest access

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.

Just as described, it's right in the center of San Jose. It is a bit noisy during the day but unless you stay in the apartment during the day you won't really notice it. The terminal 7-10 is about a 10 min walk, I took a bus to La Fortuna which was fairly cheap about $5. I suggest you take the earliest bus to avoid the traffic because it can get pretty bad. It's a great place to stay in the city and Marie was awesome.

Marie's place was perfect for me. I loved the open loft feel and the place was clean and spotless! I was traveling solo, and I felt completely safe here. It was conveniently located close to so many attractions, and the grocery store was also walking distance, which came in handy! Marie was so helpful and even arranged a taxi for me to pick me up from the airport. I can't wait to visit San Jose! I'm definitely staying here again!

Marie's place was right downtown with a perfect location. She had a great list of recommendations, which helped out a lot. We visited several places in her guidebook and all were fantastic and a very short distance from the apartment. The apartment was very quaint and cute! We loved it. Perfect for a traveling couple. Would definitely stay again.

Marie's loft was a great find--centrally located and walkable to almost anywhere in downtown San José! This modern, colorfully-furnished apartment was equipped with everything we might need for our stay. Marie was quick to respond to our every request and generously offered logistical help when we needed a place to leave our suitcases for a couple hours after checkout. I would definitely stay again and recommend the place to anyone looking for an affordable place in San José. The apartment is usually booked, so don't hesitate if you think you might stay here!

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.
