I LOVE this boutique hotel in Escazu, Costa Rica. Minutes away from where I was undergoing dental surgery, the delightful owner/operators of this gem -- nestled up against the hills -- did EVERYTHING (and then some) to make me feel comfortable, at home. Ice packs were offered each day, delicious smoothies provided, phone calls made on my behalf and great...

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and before I arrived I spoke to Matteo and Meranda on the phone,needless to say they were so helpful. They gave me tons of info on great spots to visit within the country and answered every question I had with pleasure. When I finally got to see the place, I was so...

Jack and Jill live in Escazu, a suburb of San Jose, Costa Rica. Where Jack pretends to protect Ricardo, and Jill barks along but knows better. And all the while do Mateo and Miranda show their guests comfort and art too, only those who dwell long enough get to know Mimi and Cindy, so blessed you wish they were you....

We stayed for 5 nights during the rainy season (but missed the rain). We practically had the place to ourselves. Matteo picked us up from the airport and the breakfast was always on time and delicious. The tours were amazing. We booked two of them before we got there and for about 100/each, they were worth it. Tour 1: Zip...

We just returned from a 12 day stay in Escazu, Costa Rica. The purpose of our trip was my dental work for my adult son. We stayed at Out of Bounds, which is both a boutique hotel and a vacation house rental. They have little signs in the office and house that say: meet as strangers leave as friends. Nothing...

From the moment I arrived Meranda and the staff at Out of Bounds made me feel like I was at home. My room was clean and cozy and quiet, breakfast in the morning was so delicious (with a view overlooking the valley) and delivered with a smile, wifi throughout the facility made it easy to stay connected and get work...

This place is just as beautiful as the pictures suggest, and far beyond what you can imagine. The view is spectacular, the service is top notch, and the rooms are extremely clean, comfortable and VERY well decorated. I traveled to Costa Rica alone and was looking for a starting place for my 5 week trip. I decided to stay at...
