If someone is looking for a wonderful tranquil setting with amazing views, a hostess that quietly makes your stay perfect with wonderful meals, quality information, accessibility and kindness, this is the place. You can sit out looking at views of the Central Valley, swim in a saltwater pool, read, write, and just chill. The rooms are lovely and Julia gives...

House 11 is a beautiful custom built two-story home perched on a hilltop looking down onto a lush, verdant valley with a few head of cattle lazily grazing on the opposite hillside. Our hosts, Alexander and Julia, designed the home with floor-to-ceiling windows affording guests views of drifting flotillas of clouds, sunrises, sunsets, night time lights of the neighboring towns,...

It was a pleasure having you both here. We truly enjoyed the meaningful conversations and total experience with you. The mud riding Max and I did and the hike to the river stands out for me as well as watching Robin so gracefully move about the kitchen. It really was a serendipitous occasion and we hope you all visit again...

This is an oasis with the friendliest hosts we ever met. After travelling around in Costa Rica for a few weeks we just found ourself in heaven. No bugs, a REAL bed, REAL warm water and a proper night lamp. We traveled around Costa Rica for our honeymoon and were looking for somewhere to stay with a little style and...

Thank you Pernilla and Karl for you review! Sometimes it is difficult to explain the value to perspective guests without seeming negative about the majority of other places in our neck of the woods that offer places to sleep. We laughed out loud a couple of times because we have been on the other end of the thin sheet, bug...

After a tour of Costa Rica with a group of High School students I wanted to get out on my own for a few days and experience a non-tourist area. Puriscal has few tourists so it was a surprise to find House 11 (Casa Once). This ultra modern home in a setting with incredible vistas that change by the minute...

I was traveling through Costa Rica from the north beaches down to the Panama border when I stumbled upon this beauty! The B&B is called Casa Once but I found it on here as House 11.

Casa Once far exceeded our expectations of a B&B. Alex and Julia are wonderful hosts, who make you feel at home right away. Their knowledge of the area is invaluable to those who have never traveled to this spot in Costa Rica before. The house is modern and comfortable - a rare gem. Our selection of a place to stay...

An interesting set of directions looked over by 3 taxi drivers lead me from Santiago de Puriscal, a small agricultural market town, south of San Jose. Not 5 minutes from the dusty run down market square, but an immense distance in terms of what I was about to see, to cutting edge architecture in a privileged hill top position, with...
