About Carlos Vargas

I live in a separate house on the same Condominium with my girlfriend, her son and 2 small dogs (a Yorkie and a Schnauzer). We love sports, good family and friend time, travelling, movies, eating good food... We work in our own businesses and normally are available in the condominium. If we were not around and there is anything required, at least one of us will normally be flexible to drive home and attend any special need! Count on us for any tips or help necessary to make the best out of your stay.

Carlos Vargas purchased this house in 2012

Why Carlos Vargas chose San Rafael Abajo

It's a gated community, very secure, very peaceful, near airport and near city. It is a great stop when arriving to CR or the day before leaving. The house is just 2 kms away from the main highway that goes to the Pacific beaches. 1 hour away from the first Pacific side beaches. The property is walking distance from a convenience store, a drug store, restaurants etc and the weather is normally sunny and warm!

Well kept, tidy and very close to the airport

  • 5 of 5

Carlos was very helpful with directions to his place and very easy to commicate with before our arrival.

Everything was well layed out and he accomodated my third son with a air bed, which was really appreciated.

The property is well secured and has 2 different check in gates. Just outside the gates there is a new plaza with several different choices for dining and shopping. Very good value

Airport stay

  • 4 of 5

Carlos, picked us at the airport and graciously stopped on the way to the condo for us to pick up a bite to eat and some cold drinks. In the morning, he took us to pick up our rental car and stopped at a banking machine for us. Excellent, personal service with a smile.

The unit was comfortable for two couples for the night.

Thank you Carlos!

Clean, well equipped and close to San Jose!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Carlos was very easy to deal with. The property was clean and close to all the attractions we wanted to see. The place is very secure and has a check in guard station upon arrival. The area is very quiet and the people were friendly. The kitchen was was well equipped with what we needed to make meals. We would definitely stay again! Thanks Carlos!
