Our fifth trip here! This is truely one of the most beautiful places on earth!
The glass house on the mountain is so perfect! It was very clean as always. There are breathtaking views everywhere you look! Our host Alan makes sure you have a great time. We always use him for our guide. He took us to the beach and has the best advice in planning where to go and what activities you might like, even if you choose to rent a car. I especially like his suggestions to join in the Tico local activities! The area is very safe. One of his dogs chose to sleep over everynight which kept my mind off of missing our furbabies! I cannot recommend Alan and his property high enough! The flowers and birds on the property are beautiful. The memories from our vacations here include the kindness of his family. I feel like he goes above and beyond any host!
Place with unbelievable views
Just returned from our trip and had the most relaxing time on this beautiful property taking in all the views. with clouds rolling in and out the views are for ever changing! Alan helped out a lot with places to see and which routes to take to save time on driving. His insight with Costa Rica helped immensely. We stayed for two weeks and could easily have stayed for two more. We highly recommend this property and the host.

Amazing villa spectacular views
Alan was very friendly and helpful. The property and the villa were absolutely gorgeous. Very serene. 10/10 would return or recommend
THE ONLY PROBLEM WE HAD WAS WE WERE TO ISOLATED AND IT WAS HARD TO GO ANYWHERE BECAUSE THE GPS WAS NOT MUCH HELP. ALAN WAS VERY HELPFUL THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE. WE DID CUT THE TRIP SHORT BECAUSE THE TRAFFIC IS SO BAD AND DANGEROUS .
Hi Dean and Sandy, I'm sorry to hear that navigating the roads in Costa Rica caused you to feel that the only solution was to return home. When you first arrived and expressed frustration with the GPS given to you by the car rental company, I gave you my personal iPhone equipped with Google Maps and Waze to use as a GPS (along with a tutorial on how to use Google Maps) with the hope that you would be better equipped to arrive at your desired destinations without incident. Pura Vida! Alan
Perfect couples get away
My husband and I chose Allen’s place for a fun, adventurous 25th Anniversary get away. It exceeded our expectations in every way.
Allen was wonderful, very communicative and helpful with supplying maps for every place we wanted to visit. He was always there for us yet gave us our own space. He and his family live in another home on his 30 acre property. Beautiful landscapes all around, so neat and clean inside and out. We were up with the sun and enjoyed the view while eating breakfast everyone morning, absolutely breathtaking. We picked fresh mangos and limes off their trees and explored the property, simply gorgeous.
The locals were so kind and helpful to us, we speak very limited Spanish. We ventured out each day and saw many different parts of the areas; La Paz waterfalls and gardens, Doka coffee plantation, Poas volcano, Zoo Ave, local restaurants, visited the local fire station, zip lined and Atv’s near Jaco beach and the list goes on. We stayed for 6 nights and it was perfect. If you plan for an extra night or 2 then I would suggest seeing more of the coast, didn’t get enough time at the ocean. It’s about a 4 hr ride so a stay overnight would be great.
A beautiful vacation, very special place.
This property is amazing throughout the year. Commonly referred to as Puriscal, the land of Santiago de Puriscal is overlooked by a stunning church. The capital city is in the province of San José and is located just 12 miles west of Ciudad Colón. With an average altitude of 3,600 feet, this part of Costa Rica typically sees moderate temperatures of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, give or take 10 degrees. The lack of wind and longer green season also make it very attractive. The look at a simpler life is often serene and relaxing for those who may be used to a faster pace in a larger city. Loads to do for all tastes, from outdoors adventures for bush explorers to total isolation for those who prefer the homely and the comfy!
