“Turn key accommodations from great hosts”

I can't say enough about how great my stay was at CedarCats Short Stay Apartments. I was in Costa Rica for a month. The apartments are new and modern and equipped with everything you need. Your room is also cleaned for you three times a week. My experience didn't stop there. I unfortunately had a bad accident and dislocated my rib from the cartilage (costochondral-separation) on one of my first days while I was in Costa Rica. The owners went out of there way to help me as I could barely even move the first week. They went to the store for me to buy my food and were there if I needed anything. They treated me like family. When I return back to Costa Rica, I plan on staying here again. Hopefully this time I don't get hurt again but even if I do, I will know that I am in good hands.

“Good place away from the city noise and close to amenities”

The place was very nice, safe, spacious, modern, and clean. We had also arranged the pick up from the airport with he manager which was headache free. At a request our driver also stopped at the store to pick up some essentials. We had a pleasant 2 +1 day extended stay.

Owners/manager made us feel welcome and answered any questions we had. I really recommend this place for its location and price. There are some stores near by to buy some food and coffee. Apartment was well stock up with essentials. San Jose gets expensive and very noisy, this place was a salvation.

We stayed 3 nights at Cedar Cats. We were pleasantly surprised by the well kept new building. It is conveniently located to bus routes heading downtown. The bus stop is across the street. It's a quiet, very clean, secure building. We liked the access to the free laundry facility in the building. The kitchen was basic with all we needed to prepare some meals. The owners of the building were there to help us in anything we needed. The location is walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. We highly recommend this place and we will certainly be back.

“I love this place!”

I am in love with this place. I can't even explain how helpful and kind Mari and Fernando are. They have made being in Costa Rica so much easier and better. I initially was going to only stay a week at their place and within a few days decided to stay a month, and most likely longer. The apartment is very nice. Modern. Which was a big plus for me. It's easy to hop on a bus right outside the apartment and go to downtown San Jose. There are other stores and restaurants in walking distance. I feel safe here because the building is secure. It has everything I need. And having Mari and Fernando as hosts just makes it even better!

“Best place to stay at in San Jose”
Reviewed 1 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Cedar Cats for 3 weeks and enjoyed every day of it. The apartment is brand new, comfortable, very clean, safe and you will find everything you need starting with a fully equipped kitchen in every apartment and washer/dryer for free use. The daily maid service is very friendly. You can reach the city center and downtown very quickly with bus or taxi (bus around 50 USD Cents).
Best thing about staying here, are your hosts. We have not meet such friendly and caring people during trips in foreign countries, absolutely perfect!! Thank you again and we wish you all the best :)
