About the property

Beautiful 2 story, 3 br house in an attractive resident zone innEscazú, SJ

We have a very unique and rustic beautiful home in Costa Rica where we lived for many years. You want to have all your living space / spaces where you can enjoy your time together with all the amenities in the house. It's a perfect space for families or a group of friends with our 3 bedrooms (1 king size bed, 1 queen size and 2 individual beds) and two bathrooms. Optionally there is an extra sofa bed in the TV room. The house is very fresh inside, so on hot sunny days you can either stay inside or use our terraces with barbecue or even better our big garden with tropical plants and a gazebo. The big windows will let you enjoy the natural light coming through. There is a garage for two cars.

Supermarkets, shopping, restaurants and cafes, sightseeing places to go, and how to get around to volcanos, near beaches, among others (see instructions available online after your booking). In addition to this, you will be asked to answer the questions and help you during your stay.

The house is located in Bello Horizonte, Escazú. Escazú is an upscale neighborhood of San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Escazú (San Rafael and Guachepelin) offers a lot of supermarkets, shopping centers, restaurants, fine dining, clubs and bars, cinemas, fitness studios, crossfit gyms, banks, hospitals, .... everything you can ask for. Escazú is a nice suburb town close to the mountains, where you can go hiking or just enjoy the beautiful sights with sunny weather or night lights (from a couple with a lookout with typical gastronomy).

There are bus stops nearby within a few minutes walking distance from the house. Furthermore, taxis (Uber and other) are easily available by request. Driving is the best way to move around the San Jose area. You are very near (10-15 minutes) to the capital (San Jose) and it's just 27 minutes to Caldera and from there to the beaches in Guanacaste, which are the most beautiful for us. From the house you can easily reach the following places:

30-minute drive to SJO (Juan Santamaría International Airport).

San Jose downtown: 10 min

Sunny Santa Ana Valley: 10 min.

Punta Leona / Herradura / Jaco beaches: 1 hour (on the highway 27).

Poás Volcano National Park: 45 min

Irazû Volcano Park: 40 min

Zip Lines: 30 min

White Water Rafting: 1 hour

Whether you are coming for vacation, business, cosmetic surgery or dental work, this is the perfect home base. Create breathtaking panoramic views, a beautiful garden and lots of amenities.

Security deposit will vary and depend on the length of your stay. It can be negotiated for long-term renter. The house can be rented for days, weeks or months.

Excellent choice in Escazu

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had the most amazing stay in this beautiful home. The outdoor patio and yard is where we spent most of our time while home. Gorgeous! Everything is close. Shopping, museums, adventure. So fun to be in a Costa Rican home instead of a cookie cutter hotel. Hosts are very gracious. Safe. Clean. Memorable.

Great location, huge property nice house!

  • 5 of 5

The property is great completely fenced in with a beautiful garden, and nice covered outdoor space with a grill we used on several occasions. The house is also huge with a great kitchen, dining room, living room, tv room and bathroom on the lower level and a spacious garage for two cars. All the real bedrooms are upstairs there are three bedrooms an office space and one bathroom in the upstairs area, two twin beds a king bed and a full. Our group was 3 adults and one child realistically I would say you could have a group of 6-7 people stay in the house as there is only one bathroom near all the bedrooms. The home owners were so kind and accommodating it was easy to feel right at home. I would highly recommend this house for families or couples traveling together.

Our family stayed for over a month the only drawback to the house was the laundry the washing machine can only take two towels at a time and there is no dryer, also the machine is very difficult to use and quite old and the buttons etc are in German. Plan to have your laundry done at a laundry facility.

Owner's Response: With regard to the point of washing machine and dryer: Our washer is a German "Miele" - reknown as the "Mercedes Benz" of washing machines. It is elder but works well, being able for loadings of more than two towels. There are easy understandable instructions in English, German and Spanish. We have not any dryer. Why this?: Out of our laundry room there is sufficient space and suitable equipment for drying your laundry by sun. This is good for cloth and friendly for environment.

Nice roomy home in Escazu for a big family

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved it here during our stay in Escazu. The home is big and roomy, great for our family of 7. We loved the big covered patio that opened up to the yard. The only bummer was that there were so many ants- the kind that bite! The kids couldn't really play there long. Other than that things were great. The owners were so kind and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thanks Dennis. The problem with the ants has been already resolved by our gardener.

Charming spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Furst was the perfect home away from home nestled in the hills of Escazu. We loved being able to hang out and open the back yard and enjoy the many butterflies, hummingbirds, and tropical birds that came to the property. We especially loved the open areas where the family could sit and play games both in the back yard and in the spacious living room adjoining the terrace in the back. The house was well equipped with everything you might need for cooking and lounging. We felt pretty safe in the neighborhood, especially given the fact the house has an alarm. Amanda met us and gave us a packet of well thought out instructions as well as tips / pointers on where to shop for groceries locally. If travelling from Europe, you will be happy to learn the house is wired for 220v as well as the more common Costa Rica 110v. The outlets are clearly marked and the owner thoughtfully labelled outlets as well as other useful tidbits throughout the house, like labels on switches, doors, and English instructions for the German washer.

We would love to rent the home again if we are coming to Costa Rica.

One additional note: Houses in Costa Rica have no names, so to find the property, download Waze ahead of your arrival (if you don't already use it) and enter Calle Alemanes and Calle Leon (Route 177), which is the nearest intersection.
