The hosts were very welcoming. They both were exceptionally helpful with directions, locations, excursions, etc. Alexis and James are both very caring, compassionate people and they both go far out of the way to make you feel comfortable.

Great clean room, very nice and accommodating hosts. Had a great time. Right beside a park and walking distance to a few restaurants, and car rental.

From the moment James picked us up at the airport to when he generously drove us to the bus station we felt pampered and happy. Alexis is a lovely person with many good suggestions and advise. We liked them both very much. The accommodations are clean, convenient and nicely decorated. Breakfast foods and drinks are all provided as well as everything you need such as oil, spices etc. prepare meals if you like. A very comfortable 'home away from home' which we highly recommend and hope to visit again someday.

James and Alexis were amazing hosts! I arranged an airport pickup with them and I was two hrs behind. James waited for my arrival with a big smile on his face. When I got to their home, Alexis welcomed me with open arms and showed me around. They were always around to answer my questions. Their place is very neat and clean, and the kitchen is always stocked with eggs, break, milk, juice and bananas. I loved the flexibility of using the kitchen to make food. Alexis and James helped me arrange tours and my bus to get to Manuel Antonio. I would definitely stay with them again. They go over and beyond to help their guests and to make them feel comfortable. :)

My second stay with Alexis and James at the end of my trip was too short. I did stay 10 days with them earlier in February. This genuine and professional couple truly deserves all the praise and ️️️️️ ratings they are continuously receiving. I leave Costa Rica for now but will be back in San Jose at Alexis and James' Residence la Paz. I really cherish the connection I had with both of them. I had a lovely stay and have gained two new friends. These kind of connections are what makes traveling so much more worthwhile THANKS ! for exceeding all my expectations ;) xox Gaston
