Typical Costa Rican home in a very safe typical Costa Rican neighborhood with some US amenities such as large King bed and bath tub. Simple yet spacious accommodations. Check out the Irazu volcano and famous Angels church. Get to know the less touristy Cartago valley and mountain side. All that and more all within 30 min of the house. Shop at the local farmers market and eat some home cooked traditional meals. A true non-touristy Costa Rica experience.
Nanny's Casita is located in a typical and safe Costa Rican neighborhood
where my family has been living for many years. It is the type of neighborhood where everyone knows each other and is family. The one draw back of this familiar neighborhood is the neighbor's dogs. The neighbor runs a dog rescue center in the house next door. They bark at random times and unfortunately we can't do anything about that. The apartment is very basic and simple, but also spacious. You have your own private entrance, stove top, refrigerator, and couch that pulls out into a bed. There is a separate bedroom with a king bed. Spacious bathroom and tub. There is a family owned bakery on the corner three houses away, and a family owned mini market known as "pulperias" a few houses away on the other side. There is also a bigger grocery store a short 8 minute walk away. The center of Cartago is also walking distance away where you can find the famous Los Angeles Church, las ruinas Church, the Cartago market, and the Technology University. On Saturday morning you can walk to the local farmers market and shop for the freshest fruits and vegetables to cook in your kitchen. If walking is not your thing there is also the local bus, taxis and ubers to take you where you need to go. We also offer excursions to the Volcano and Centro Cartago. Please ask if interested. This is the perfect comfortable space to check out and experience authentic Costa Rican living like a true Tico.
Guest will have full access to their very own little house with a private entrance that opens to the kitchen and living room. Kitchen is fully equipped with a stove top, refrigerator, and microwave. The living room features a couch that folds out into a bed. The room features a large bedroom with a king size bed. The bathroom features a relaxing bathtub and shower.
My mother (Maria) lives in the house next door and looks over Nanny's Casita. She will welcome you to Cartago and can assist you with anything you need during your visit. She is happy to help plan and take you on various excursions around Cartago since she is a resident expert in the area. Or we can simply hand you the key and allow you to explore Cartago at your own pace. It's all up to you.
