Our fully furnished one bedroom guest house (on the right above) is for rent by the month or long-term (please ask). It’s on a cool and quiet mountainside in the barrio of el Cajon de Grecia at an altitude of 4,200 feet (1,280 meters). We are at the end of a 2,000 foot (600 meters) all-weather gravel road where there is no noise from passing traffic or neighbors. Year 'round temperatures on our four-acre coffee farm range from 58 to 83 degrees F (15 to 28 degrees C). Like other Central Valley cities and barrios, Grecia and el Cajon are safe to walk around and travel in although prudence is always recommended. Be sure to say ,,¡Hola!" to our neighbors when you meet them.
We’re located 4.5 miles (about 7.2 km) from downtown Grecia, fifty minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport (airport code: SJO), and a little over an hour from San Jose.
Friends have cataloged over one hundred species of birds in our neighborhood. You can look down on some of them from our balcony. Here are just a couple of examples . . .
One of our beautiful Motmots that are here year 'round
And one of the migratory birds who frequent our neighborhood
This is a great base from which to explore Costa Rica (see the "Day Trips" page), write the great American novel, or just veg out and experience the very best Costa Rica's Central Valley has to offer.
