About Irene Ureña Porras
I love traveling and therefore I also like people who travels. I'll be satisfy if my home makes you feel somehow like a local because it's the kind of experience that I look forward when I travel. I'm an architect and I'm always looking for new ideas, my home is constantly changing and improving. I love simple, practical and clean places. The smaller details sometimes give me the biggest confort. I lived in London for one year and a half and I think it's the best city in the world. I like big, modern and hectic cities but I also appreciate historic, small and quiet towns. I like contrast and variety and I'm always happy to know new places. I'm extremely tidy and organised. I like well ventilated and bright places. I love retro, vintage and classics styles but my home is very simple and modern.

Why Irene Ureña Porras chose San José Province
It is probably the safest neighborhood in San José because many embassies and high profile politicians live here so there is a lot of private security and it is regularly patrolled. Historically it was also known as the Jewish area too. One of the most exclusive, richest, therefore cleaner and better kept areas in Costa Rica. Small Parks, good restaurants and coffee places. Only 2 blocks from the National Stadium and the biggest and better known park in San José La Sabana Metropolitan Park. This building is a located on a quiet bubble in the middle of very active and thriving area.

the owner and the property manager were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The property is extremely well kept, very spacious, comfortable and located very close to restaurants, supermarkets and the stadium. Would highly recommend!

Modern and convenient
The space is beautiful, 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, and a kitchen that has everything you need, lots of storage, closets with hangers and more! Area is very safe, near stadium and parks and all types of restaurants and groceries. Owner responds quickly, and the manager is helpful for the area too.
I stayed 2 weeks for medical treatment and was so happy to have this amazing space.
Thanks for your kind review and constructive feedback, I managed to fix a water leak and also improve the main door lock. You’ll always be welcome back.
Excellent Place, we will be back !
My wife and I are travelling around Costa Rica with our small dog. Irene's place is just as good if not better in person than in the photos. She was very responsive to all communication and her manager Cynthia was super accommodating. We can't say enough about how pleasant our stay here was. The location is excellent and we were able to walk to many place around the area to eat or shop for some snacks. The area felt safe and we enjoyed it very much.
Beautiful apartment near stadium and restaurants.
Stayed here with my mom in April 2018. We were here having dental work done. Taxis were always waiting a few blocks away at Scotia Bank. Apartment was clean and nicely furnished, exactly like the photos. Looking forward to visiting again.
Location ideal, tastefully decorated - couldn't have been happier!
We spent 3 weeks here in January. We were looking for a place to comfortably escape the northern cold, explore what San Jose had to offer and have easy access to the highways for travelling the countryside - this was perfect. The condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay - fully equipped kitchen, renovated throughout, modern washrooms, comfortable beds, light and airy - just as described only somehow even better. The nights were quiet and great for sleeping. Underground parking was secure. We took advantage of the 4th floor terrace for relaxing with our morning coffee. The building is a delightful low rise with only 11 units and blends in to this upscale neighbourhood. We thoroughly enjoyed walking to great coffee shops and restaurants in the area - comfortable day or night - and loved the proximity of the big Sabana Park with its joggers, soccer games and family picnics. Even though we had a rental car we usually walked to the Hilton on the corner to get an inexpensive cab to the downtown area with it's excellent museums and restaurants. We were on the highways within minutes and the airport is just 20 minutes away. We had easy contact with Irene who made sure our check in and out and anything else we had questions about was promptly facilitated. We hope to return again!
Great apartment in the perfect location!
We had an amazing 4 night stay. The apartment was clean, very well equipped and in a great location. The building is fabulous. Would absolutely stay again!
One of the oldest and nicest neighbourhoods in Costa Rica. Populated by Embassies and Diplomatic residences. This makes it a very clean and safe area, with private guards every few blocks or meters sometimes.
Very close to La Sabana Metropolitan Park you have nice open areas, without cars. You can run or walk if that is part of your routine and there is a nice lake with pedestrian circuits very safe during day.
