Where you’ll be

Canaán, San José, Costa Rica

Our neighbourhood is a mixed Tico/Gringo community that gets on very well together. The locals are extremely friendly and will always say hello.
There is a small grocery store that sells limited fruits and vegetables and dried goods just a 10 minute walk up the road.
On the way to the store, you will pass the cheese farm, where you can buy fresh swiss style cheese, fresh milk and yoghurt and local organic coffee. You will also pass the Xamaritan chocolate factory, where you can buy coffee, cakes and hand made chocolates, as well as partake in a chocolate workshop.
You can also make a call for a freerange farm eggs and chicken delivery or take a longer stroll or short drive up to the trout farm, where you can fish for your own trout and have them cooked their for you or bring them home for the grill!

My wife and I have both lived in Costa Rica for almost 20 years and love the country, the people and the culture. We like to spend most our time between the beach (Osa Peninsula) and the mountains (Chirripó). We enjoy hosting guests at our home and, although we like to give them as much privacy as possible, we only live a stones throw away and are always available to answer any questions or to resolve any issues they may have. Bienvenido y Pura Vida. Tania and Angus

We will require occasional access from the main gate to the vegetable garden and for river access. We will not approach or enter the house without prior approval.
The gardener comes for a few hours each day, but will not disturb you or come close to the house before 9.00am.
