The Residence and Neighborhood:

Bed and Breakfast for short term guests or longer term with kitchen privileges.

The DELIGHT room is a comfortable 13 ft X 13 ft room with a private bath and a QUEEN BED. Sleeps two comfortably.

The MTN VIEW room is an even larger room than the DELIGHT with a shared bath and a QUEEN BED and TWIN BED. It is a "favorite" of many guests because it has a view of the lovely Escazu hills and is sunny and pleasant all year 'round. The one other person who shares the bathroom is usually out and on her way by 6:30 AM so it is almost like having your own bathroom.

Have you ever had an amazing vacation in a foreign country only to come home to a US$500 cell phone bill? You only checked a few emails, used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, and uploaded pictures to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to make your friends jealous, so how could it cost that much?

I've been a victim to these outrageous roaming fees which has lead me to either leave my phone in airplane mode or buy a local prepaid SIM card in the country I am visiting, neither of which is ideal.

Beginning on Oct. 20th, the U.S. cellular company T-Mobile is changing the game in international travel by getting rid of international roaming fees. That's right, U.S. T-Mobile users will now be able to roam the world with their current cell phone and number at no extra cost.

The service will be available in countries including Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy, China, and 200 other countries. It allows unlimited data usage and texting, with phone calls at a rate of 20 cents per minute. The service automatically connects to the local service in the new country and requires nothing for the user to do.

T-Mobile's new plan is perfect for the frequent and infrequent traveler that wants to always be connected while they are away. Picture being able to hop from country to country in Europe, use all of your data, apps, maps, and email, and not be penalized for it. The savings and convenience are extraordinary.

T-Mobile is currently the only cell phone provider in the United States offering an international cell phone service like this. It's great they are the first to recognize that we live in a global world where people want to be connected no matter where they are. It will also be interesting to see whether the larger carriers like Verizon and AT&T eventually jump on board.

We loved staying with Liza. The house has such personality and the variety of guests that are there at any given time make for interesting conversations and unusual connections. It's a very nice, safe neighborhood but like anywhere, stay on your toes. Liza was always quick to respond and communication was easy and free flowing. We very much enjoyed our time there and desire to stay with her again when we return to CR. Pura Vida!

My experience at Liza's was way beyond expectations. I chose this place because of all the amazing reviews and they were not exaggerating. From the moment I stepped out of the taxi to the day I left, it was like a second home. Liza, (Victoria) was so helpful, I started to feel guilty. But it's what she does. The home itself was beautiful. The rooms are cozy and spotlessly clean. Each one a bit different. You can have all the privacy you want and plenty of new friendships if you choose to spend time in the common areas. Tip: Sit in the courtyard with the kitties! It's a really wonderful place to get to know other travelers. Lots of instant connections and bonding experiences happen here. It's just that kind of place. The unwavering assistance from Victoria (Liza) added to an already very lovely place. She is more than a host. She is a concierge, a friend, a wealth of knowledge about a million things related to Costa Rica and SO much more. I saw her in action over and over with every guest. Victoria, thanks seems hardly enough for all you did to make my trip overseas for dental work, simply spectacular. I will miss you!

You made it easy, Lori! You were so appreciative! Thank you for the wonderful, articulate review. I hope you write articles (do podcasts) about all your wonderful experiences in Costa Rica, esp the animal sanctuary, Lands in Love. Keep me posted, please! Pura Vida!!

Escazu is a safe, upscale neighborhood just on the outskirts of San Jose. Its quiet, and has plenty of little restaurants and shopping to pass time while in the SJ area. We would highly recommend this as a convenient and low cost option to have as a base for travels and activity in the SJ area. A short uber ride from the city centre, and pleasant for walks without people approaching you on the streets. Ask Liza about the little hidden restaurant run by her friend Joanne around the corner. A must gypsy joint that was one of the highlights of our San Jose trip! As for the house, it was super clean and the breakfast of fresh fruits and teas was a perfect start to the day. The entrance way was very secure, and there was parking made available for our vehicle. So many little amenities and things available that I can't describe them all on here. Have a visit and find out for yourself!

Liza's place is like a home away from home. I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay and was looked after very well! Thank you, Micky!

This is one of the nicest AirBnb places ever...Liza or Victoria as she really is called, has created an oasis of calm and beauty...the rooms, all of which I viewed, as the house was quiet in the afternoon, are stylish and comfortable, equipped with desks, and everyone one could want...I was (URL HIDDEN) rained heavily during my stay, which revealed a few leaks in places, but as Micky, Victoria's right hand said, it is necessary to find out the hard way sometimes...maybe also a plumber could come and overhaul a few small things, but this is because the house, a grand old lady built in the early part of the 20th century I would imagine...maybe a little later...has lived through many storms, and many people, so why shouldn't she have a facelift...we do when we need it...even if it is not surgical!!! Brava Liza...you have a super B&B in a select, quiet and lovely area...thank you for letting me stay...

Staying at Lisa's was very comfortable. My sister is currently a little ill and it helped her a lot staying in Lisa's home because There is a lady whose name is Janice, she does Chromotherapy. The therapy helped pain in her abdomen go down very much. Also there is a great restaurant across the street that is to die for. Not only Is her food out of this world, but If you have something bothering you the chef will cook something for that particular issue. The chef cooks such a variety of dishes with so many delicous spices, it's amazing..... also, Her mint ice cream is PURA VIDA! Also there's a coffee shop finca walking distance that is family owned, been in business for many years. If you're a book junkie you'll find a great variety of subjects to read about as well at Lisa's. Thank you Lisa. :)

I have had many adventures (with what seems to be endless travel along with life experiences) and these adventures continue in Costa Rica. I had a guest house in San Francisco and I would love to welcome you to my home here in Escazu, Costa Rica for a short or longer stay. This home was picked and decorated with YOU in mind!

Since arriving in Costa Rica in 2002, I have been a teacher specializing in English for Specific Purposes and English for Business Purposes which is very interesting because I get to learn a lot about all kinds of fields. Some of my students, along the way, have come from banking, nutrition, medicine, finance, small business, diplomacy, etc. I had an interesting time getting two Master's of Education simultaneously, one from the University of Costa Rica and one from Framingham State College.

In 2010, I taught at EARTH University in Guacimo Costa Rica where they teach sustainable farming, so this city girl learned a lot about farming and I have gotten very interested in issues around farming and other matters about sustainability.

I have also been a massage therapist for nearly 23 years, something I am very passionate about.

Since June 2011, this very interesting house has had people who have come from India, Pakistan, France, England, Poland, Serbia, Russia, Switzerland, England. Germany, Reunion, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Canada, the U.S., and others. We just never know who might show up! Sometimes we have eight countries represented at the table, and yet, often there are unexpected and interesting connections. It is a house filled with blessings!

I hope you will join us and continue the adventure!
