Our stay here was extremely pleasant and relaxing. There are plenty of shops and places to eat within walking distance, the airport (SJO) was close by, and San Jose just a short taxi/uber ride away. It was quiet and peaceful, and we enjoyed many mornings on the porch just taking in the beautiful surroundings. Although Luis and his family are on the same property, it never felt intrusive and we still felt separated from them, but able to go there if we needed anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Costa Rica.

Wonderful help from Luis and his family. Good location and close to convenient stores, grocery store, bank, etc. Whole house to yourself! Also, a beautiful orchard with avocado, lemon, lime, orange, etc. trees. Fresh whenever you go out to pick them. And a lovely picnic table and chairs to sit outside and enjoy being in the fresh air.

Our stay by Luis Carlos and his family was very nice. The family is friendly, helpful, happy and very hospitable. The house where we stayed was cozy and it felt like a home. If you're going to Costa Rica, then this house is certainly a good house to stay. We will come back :)

We were in Costa Rica for approximately 4 weeks. We booked the first week at Luis Carlos' place which was great, and which we've already reviewed. The next week was in Cahuita, then we spent a week on the Pacific. We intentionally left the last week open because we didn't know where we'd want to be the last week. Well, we spent it again at Luis Carlos' place. We loved how comfortable the place was, it is secure, it has good sleeping accommodations and the best of the kitchens we had in Costa Rica. the Internet was great, and it was simply a great place to go back to, to relax for the last few days of our vacation. If you want to be near San Jose (or the airport), this is where I'd recommend. I will absolutely stay again with Luis Carlos if I return to Costa Rica someday. I want to mention again how tremendous the entire family is. Coming back to Luis Carlos' place felt like coming home, and I was greeted like that's what was happening. In short, I highly recommend Luis Carlos' home to anyone considering it.

Luis Carlos's home was beautiful, spacious, clean, and our favorite of the Airbnbs we stayed at in Costa Rica. The location is close to a small town and a short taxi ride to the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation, which my boyfriend and I also recommend for a tour! Everything was perfect for a quick stay at the beginning of our trip in the country.

Our family of four stayed at Luis Carlos' place for 5 nights in January, and it was a wonderful experience. We used the home as a base to explore Poas, take a coffee tour, go into San Jose and generally hang out. We had four of us split into the two rooms with beds large enough for us to share, two to each. The house was well equipped with everything we needed including a very good kitchen, a great spot to eat outside, and strong wifi. Luis Carlos and his family live next door and they were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. We were delivered some fresh fruit from their garden one day, and another day they brought over some tamales for us to share. There was always someone available if we needed anything or needed to ask a question. Luis Carlos and his sister speak very good English - a bit of Spanish may help otherwise but we got by just fine (I speak some Spanish, the rest of my family do not). In all, it was a great experience and we would not hesitate to return someday.
