This small cozy apartment is situaded in the middle of the chic and urban neighberhood of Escazu. However its setting is absolutely beautiful. The cabin is sorrounded by rainforest. You might find squirrels, iguanas, and birds. Entering the cabin is an adventure, you will cross a small wooden bridge and get the absolute Costa Rican experience.
“I feel so lucky to have landed in this place during the covid pandemic because the family was super super helpful and kind during my long stay as my flights kept being delayed. Alejandro went out of his way to help with anything I needed and gave up potential guests in case my flight were delayed more. On top of that it’s an incredible little nature paradise, but super close to various supermarkets, restaurants and anything you need! Lovely birds wake you up together with the sound of the river and the wind going through the bamboos. Lovely space outside to hang out or exercise and the second floor has a wonderful view of the river and wooden floors in case you wanna yoga or anything. I’ll always be grateful that I got to spend the quarantine in such a peaceful place. Feels sad to leave even if I’m going back home. Hoping to come back some day! Thanks Alejandro!”

“Alejandro’s place is outstanding. Everything is sparkling clean, comfortable, simply perfect. Dña Aldys goes out of her way to make sure you are more than comfortable. She is a great host. The room has everything for a great stay, is very close to everything. 10/10”
Una de las casas coloniales más antiguas y hermosas de Costa Rica. Consta de 350m. de construcción, amplios ventanales rodeados de jardines, techos de madera, exquisita decoración. Áreas de estar muy cómodas, conectadas con espectacular jardín. La calle es silenciosa y segura, a 600m. de Escazú Centro: restaurantes, cafés, tiendas, bancos, centros médicos y supermercados. Excelente transporte público y ubicación: 20min a S. José, a 2h de las playas.
“Staying with Emilia is chicken soup for the soul. They don’t make homes nor women like her anymore. The house is beautiful, interesting and exactly as pictured. It is kept spotless by Juanita, the housekeeper, who is beyond kind and helpful and a fantastic cook. I stayed for a month and honestly I feel like I have become family. Segunda madre , I shall greatly miss our Sunday trips to great restaurants around the city! Beautiful location, a short walk from the Escazu farmers market on Saturdays, a short walk to basically anything you could possibly want! The room is cozy, comfortable and interestingly decorated just like the rest of the house. It was such a pleasure walking through the indoor garden every morning. Emilia recommended a plastic surgeon for some Botox and filler work, he’s superb and great prices as well! I went to Costa Rica a little broken and Emilia made sure that I left Whole. She is an old soul and is touched by a light and a grace that you don’t find easily in people anymore. I am so thankful that I found her and her gorgeous house! Thank you for everything Emilia! If I could give a 10 star rating I would!”
