About Rolando Alfaro

This property have been with our family for years. My grandfather built this house to manage and coordinate all the works needed in the coffee plantations of the family. Initially it was a farm house and eventually turned into our vacation gateway from the city. The proximity of the property from the main cities, enable us to drive a short distance and be able to escape from downtown noises and embrace the nature in its purest way. A river runs next to one of the borders of the property, creating an amazing refreshing sound, that blends with the pure cool air from the mountains. The house have been renovated during various occasions and each time we tried to maintain its classic style with a touch of a contemporary look.

Why Rolando Alfaro chose Heredia

This property will ensure you a calm and peaceful stay within minutes away from the main international airport, museums, national parks and local cuisine. The playground located inside the property will keep your kids entertained and safe at all times, as the property is completely surrounded by a 7 feet tall green wall.

What makes this house unique

The house offers daily maid service at a rate of $5 dollars per hour. The maid has been working for the house for years and will assist you in all you may need. If needed the maid can prepare complementary breakfast every morning. The breakfast will include: fresh fruits, freshly brewed local coffee, orange juice, tea, fresh local bread, eggs and gallo pinto.

Amazing place & location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for just one week and we loved it. So close from the airport (15 minutes driving distance) and the rain forest is all over the place. The highway that takes you to the house is brand new and this is not often in CR. The area is full of activities and attractions. The house is surrounded by nature and you can hear the river sound, next to your bedroom. We definitively are coming back!

Perfekter Standort für alle Aktivitäten

  • 5 of 5

Das großzügige Haus ist vom Flughafen aus, auf einer sehr guten Straße, in nur 30 min. gut erreichbar. Das Haus ist groß, gepflegt und mit allen notwendigen Utensilien eingerichtet. Wir waren 4 erwachsene Personen und hatten reichlich Platz. Wir haben oft selber gekocht, auch da hat nichts gefehlt.

Der Vermieter Rolando ist ein überaus freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Mann, auch jederzeit erreichbar. Der große Garten ist ebenfalls gepflegt und ein kleines Paradies. Wir haben die 3 Wochen sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wieder buchen.

Meine beste Empfehlung für alle die von hier aus CR bereisen möchten.

Pura vida
