About Grace Lund

My name is Grace and I live full time on the property where I keep busy with the Landscaping, and my 5 dogs. I am a Tica and love Costa Rica for it's friendly people and abundant plant and animal life.

Grace Lund purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Grace Lund chose Alajuela

After living in Canada for 28 years and raising two children, my Husband and I decided it was time to leave the Great White North and find some peace, tranquility, and warmth. I knew just the place and here we are. The Guest House was completed in 2007 and the Main House in 2008 which opened the Guest House for rent.

What makes this bungalow unique

There are many amenities within a short drive from the property, beaches, golf, sport fishing, surfing, boating, restaraunts, shopping, crocodile watching, adventure parks, which can be enjoyed on day trips. Then the tourist hustle can be left behind while you rest beside the pool and plan your next adventure.

Must see this to believe it!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented in many, many countries but the casita is a 10, a truly quality place. The listing description was accurate but the pictures did not do it justice. The bedroom was large and the wood built ins were beautiful. The kitchen was very well equipped, even had salt, pepper, oil, paper products, everything you need. The living room was very comfortable but we spent most of our time on the patio. The property was very well maintained and clean inside and out. The pool is wonderful and relaxing. The owners Grace and Ivan were easy to work with and quick to respond. They went above and beyond as owners, they were in fact great friends. The property is outside of the town of San Mateo but close to larger cities. I would recommend this casita to any of my friend and family or maybe I shouldn't since everyone that stays here wants to return! Thank you my friends for sharing this amazing property and hope to see you again!

AMAZING HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
This is indeed an amazing rental. Grace & Ivan are simply the best! From the first email, to welcoming flowers & beer & inviting us into their home! We were made to feel like friends! Wealth of information & so helpful. Great Casita - Huge Master bedroom that was very comfortable. All the kitchen amenities. Spent a lot of time on the covered porch - when it was raining. Plenty of privacy and the temperature of their pool was perfect - warm! Location was perfect for day trips! Already booked for January - this place is a keeper!

Paradise indeed

  • 5 of 5
What a great holiday! The accommodation was superb and the hosts were charming. In addition to all the amenities advertised, the guest house had fruit trees in the yard that supplied many refreshing drinks. When we arrived, Ivan and Grace introduced us to some good local restaurants and showed us where we could buy the necessities for a modest amount of cooking. They even introduced us to some of their friends. The property was very nicely maintained by a resident gardener/handyman/security person so we had no fears of being disturbed. I certainly recommend Grace's Guesthouse as place to stay for any duration.

Wonderful , comfortable, spacious vacation rental and the best hosts you could wish for

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this wonderful casita for 1 month and we have had a great time. The house is very comfortable, clean and fully equiped. Grace and Ivan are great hosts and they made us feel very welcome and at home. We loved sitting on the deck or swimming in the pool. And we loved the dogs welcoming us every morning .
We came to Costa Rica to escape the cold winter in Holland, and it was a luxury to enjoy the climat and culture of Costa Rica.
San Mateo en Orotina are nice little villages and so well located to see the rest of the country.
We would highly recommend staying at this property. We look forward to seeing Ivan and Grace again in the future.

Wow, this is the place to be in Costa Rica :)

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a beautiful place! Even prettier, more spacious and accommodating than the website. Ivan and Grace are such great hosts welcoming us with such love and care. We felt like there are part of our family as soon as we met them.They also placed fresh cut flowers around the house to welcome us to our home away from home and this is just the beginning.
