  • Accommodation


    I live in a small charming house with a porch, a garden, two bedrooms, kitchen and shared bathroom with a hot water shower and a jungle view. You would have your own private room with a mattress on the floor. I provide you with a bedding, a towel, a fan (if needed). The house is located in Tinamastes, walking distance to bus stops both to San Isidro and Dominical (beach town) that go usually 4 times a day; to a supermarket, restaurants (sodas), church and organic market on every Tuesday morning. The house is next to the busy road, so it can get laud.

    I am now living in great Berrington Massachusetts. Was unable to go to Costa Rica this winter because of health problems. The Berkshires is a great place to be in spring and summer. I need the same kind of help that is listed on this website, internet help, companion, cooking help. In the summer we can go to concerts, theater, and Jacob's pillow Dance Festival as well as many beautiful Parks rivers and lakes.
