Why Wendy Cote chose San José Province
I have own this property for about 20 years. In 2016, we decided to built our mountain retreat to share this natural oasis with the rest of the world.

We stayed for a month in this lovely oasis. It's close enough to San Jose for us to take the bus each morning. When we returned each afternoon, we looked forward to the simply breathtaking view that awaited us. Situated high on the mountainside, these cabanas are high quality, modern construction equipped with everything we needed for comfortable and memorable visit. We definitely felt very safe and secure, loved the neighborhood and enjoyed meeting the family that owns and runs the resort. A car might be recommended, but we got along great without one and used the very efficient bus system. The next door neighbor has a taxi which was extremely convent to get to the airport! We would come back, for sure! We loved it!
Thank you Marilee for staying with us! It was wonderful meeting you both! We look forward to serving you in the future.

This place is truly a Pura Vida!!
What a perfect place to end our 10-day advanture in Costa Rica. This place is a jewel on top of the mountain, overseeing the city of San Jose. We have two kids (6 and 9) and were looking for a place within 30min from the airport but outside the city. This was excatly what we were looking for. Our kids enjoyed picking lemon and oranges from the trees. It's safe and quite. the place is super cute and modern and the view is BREATHTAKING during the day and at night. Lastly, Alicia and Jose are so sweet & warm and treated us like family. I HIGHLY recommend this amazing place.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us!!! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to serving you in the future!
Great place to hang out! Gotta love being up in the hills with a city view that is second to none!
Thank you for staying with us! It was great to have you as a guest. We look forward to serving you in the future.
Relaxing, Beautiful Views, Fantastic people
In less than 24 hours I leave for the next phase of my journey (I'm both excited and sad to leave). I wanted a location close to San Jose, but not in San Jose, this property met and exceeded my expectations.
Breathtaking views, quite, safe, providing me with a better than expected experience. Property managers, Alicia and Jose, are two of the warmest, welcoming individuals I've met during my travels. If you are interested in a relaxing and safe property, close to historical buildings and the National Museum, this is the place..."Pura Vida" at it's best.
Thank you! It has been a pleasure to have you stay with us. We are glad you enjoy your stay and look forward to seeing you again! We wish you a wonderful experience in Costa Rica.
quaint cozy romantic cottage and garden
wendy's place is fantastic, clean, safe and close enough to the city to be both a great home base and romantic hideaway. this family run property was professional but homely and welcoming. i have nothing but praise for the little resort that they have created hear with modern and well kept accommodation and grounds. a very affordable and private property with outside eating and relaxing areas. alicia and jose both always available and willing to help with anything made me feel welcome and looked after. it was a genuine pleasure to have stayed hear and met this family, i will certainly be staying with them in the future should i ever visit san jose again.
Thank you very much Mark! It was our pleasure to have you as a guest.
Paradise of a home ❤️
My fiancé and I had the most wonderful time in Wendy's home. Every day we were woken up with Alicia's ( Wendy's mother ) amazing ethentic breakfast. Also we didn't get much sleep the first few because of how beautiful the city looks during the night, it's magical. We will definitely come back in few years after we explore the world 🌎 thank you Wendy and Alicia for making our vacation unforgettable.
