Casa de Furst was the perfect home away from home nestled in the hills of Escazu. We loved being able to hang out and open the back yard and enjoy the many butterflies, hummingbirds, and tropical birds that came to the property. We especially loved the open areas where the family could sit and play games both in the back yard and in the spacious living room adjoining the terrace in the back. The house was well equipped with everything you might need for cooking and lounging. We felt pretty safe in the neighborhood, especially given the fact the house has an alarm. Amanda met us and gave us a packet of well thought out instructions as well as tips / pointers on where to shop for groceries locally. If travelling from Europe, you will be happy to learn the house is wired for 220v as well as the more common Costa Rica 110v. The outlets are clearly marked and the owner thoughtfully labelled outlets as well as other useful tidbits throughout the house, like labels on switches, doors, and English instructions for the German washer.
We would love to rent the home again if we are coming to Costa Rica.
One additional note: Houses in Costa Rica have no names, so to find the property, download Waze ahead of your arrival (if you don't already use it) and enter Calle Alemanes and Calle Leon (Route 177), which is the nearest intersection.
