Great big room on the first floor of a mansion in Escazu.
It's a gated community complex of four houses. Two huge houses, one guard house, and one in law unit. The pool is shared but it's rarely used. It's a gated community. It is rare for us to have the 3 houses rented at one given time. Each of the big houses sleeps up to 10-16 people. So for example if there were 20 people in your group I would give you both houses. If there is 16 people in your group i would only give you one house. If in your group there were more than 32+ people I would give you the two big houses and the Inlaw unit. Each house has four or more rooms. Each house can be seen in the pictures with the exception of the in law unit.
The views and proximity to everything is what most people love about this property. The property is a private estate in the mountains of Escazu. Great views. Private and gated. Only minutes from town.
The art mansión is in a prívate gated community. It is extremely safe. There are large walls all around the large football field size lot. The properties alarm system was just recently updated with new state of the art monitors for movement in and around perimeters. There is a long term guard who has been living on site for several years. He lives in a separate home along with his wife and two other family members.
The area is very exclusive. Many people consider it the Beverly Hills of Costa Rica.
San Jose and Escazu center are a short drive away.
Things to See and Do
San Jose is the business and residential center of Costa Rica and there are plenty of things to see and do during the day and throughout the night.
Barrio Bird Walking Tour – This ain’t your average tour! Barrio Bird walking tours of San Jose are informative, personal, fun, and designed to show you a San Jose that you won’t get from a guide book. You can even combine your tour with a massage and/or yoga to relax and recharge after your travels.
Museums – There are tons of museums in San Jose, it would be difficult to visit them all in one trip. A good place to start might be the Costa Rican Art Museum located in the architecturally interesting building that once served as Costa Rica’s first international airport. It’s free!
Eat on top of the Holiday Inn – This sounds strange, but the best view of downtown San Jose can be seen from atop this building. There is a dress code and lunch is about $8 USD.
Mercado Bourbón – This is where you should go if you want to see a more authentic gritty Costa Rican market than Mercado Central, which is geared a bit towards tourists. DO NOT take any valuables, Mercado Bourbón and the streets that surround it are quite sketchy.
Teatro Nacional – Costa Rica’s National Theater is a fantastic neoclassical building and you must attend a performance to get a peek at the inside, which is still in its original state. Performances can be attended at lunch or in the evening and getting tickets is usually as easy as showing up right before the show. Ticket costs are low, under $10.
Outside of the City
Volcanoes – Poas and Irazu Volcano are both about an hour’s ride outside of San Jose. Poas is to the North, Irazu is to the Northeast. The best time to view the craters is bright and early in the morning because clouds roll in to cover the view in the afternoon. Take a jacket – it gets cold up there!
Jaco Beach – Jaco is under an hour’s drive from San Jose. Enjoy the beach and stay into the night for a wild party scene. If you want something more tranquilo, just venture slightly south to find pristine beaches void of crowds.
Coffee Tour – Some of the country’s best coffee tours are located right outside of downtown San Jose.
The kitchen is to be left in the same condition that you found it. Please no dirty dishes bottles or garbage in and around the pool area or throughout the property.
