4 out of 5

Quite wonderful!

Pros: The meal offered and provided by William...outstanding! A truly talented chef! The two-bedroom set-up The peaceful balcony The secure parking
Cons: The master bedroom was visited by some ants during the night, but the owner later assured us the issue has been addressed. Not a huge deal.
Location: On the outskirts of Alajuela...a large town by Costa Rican standards. Quiet and peaceful, overlooking the city and the coffee plantation next door.
The location of this property was quite excellent...on the outskirts of Alajuela but in a very secure setting on a fairly quiet road northwest of town and within a short drive of the airport. Our family very much enjoyed the balcony overlooking the coffee plantation and the city, and the quick wifi. The apartment was very comfortable for a family of four and decorated beautifully, and the sleeping arrangements...beds, sheets, comforters....were incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was well-sized and well-stocked with pans and dishes and such. Our family felt very safe and enjoyed the size of the apartment. The highlight of the visit was the meal offered and prepared by the owner...he is an incredibly talented and humble chef. The curry chicken was one of the best meals I can remember. Would definitely return....
