Jeanetta is a wonderful host. She truly means it when she says that she wants her guests to feel like they are special. We were there for three nights and really did feel welcomed. Not only was our room well appointed, but the atmosphere was wonderful. Breakfast on the verandah every day cooked to our liking. Visiting with Jeanette, who...

Jeanetta is a great host and Christina is a gem. Jeanetta was kind enough to switch us to the apartment for no extra cost because we were going to be there for three nights. The apartment is great - very roomy, with a delightful balcony. I expected the guest house to be farther out in the country, but it is...

You do not believe in keeping secrets, I upgraded you to the apartment because you were so nice about the changes I had to make. My clients are something else, they highlight me but they never say how gracious they are. Plus giving you the apartment was part of our attempt to make it impossible for you not to come...

Of the seven guest houses we have stayed in Costa Rica, La Terraza is hands down our favorite. Jeanetta and Christina are two of the nicest people we have met in a country full of nice people -- we consider them both lifelong friends. LaTerraza itself is a beautiful property, with extensive, well-kept grounds and a lovely stream running close...

Thanks so much for your vote of confidence. You did'nt say that you like Costa Rica so much until after your first visit you decided to make this home. Oh the secrets people keep.

During the past few years I've stayed at La Terraza 4-5 times and I always return to this lovely spot. The rooms are quite amble, the sound of the running stream on the property makes for a refreshing peace. I like having a mini-frigerator, coffee maker and microwave oven in the rooms so I can have snacks and treats when...

I don't know if the our business plan included making guest so comfortable until they decide to make Costa Rica their home. You never expect that a person is going to like visiting so much until they decided to stay. Our beautiful weather is hard to resist. Thanks for your years of patronage, we had hoped you would be a...

My husband and I stayed for a week in Jan of 2012, and for sure I will be always happy to suggest others stay at La Terazza in Grecia.

I had corresponded with the owner, Jeanetta Owens on the net so I had an inkling of her wit and charm before I arrived. Her Inn is spotless. The guestroom I stayed in was well appointed; with 2 rocking chairs on a small balcony overlooking the jungle hillside that abuts the back of her property. Her property is lovely and...

Even though we stayed at La Terraza for only one night, the lovely owner, Jeanetta, made us immediately feel like we were family. She was always available to answer any questions and give us information on the area. Her staff, Christina and Carlos, were always friendly and smiling. The accomodations and grounds are really beautiful. Loved being able to sleep...

Experiencing La Terraza B&B was even better the second time around! The owner, Jeanetta Owens, was as warm and welcoming as I remembered and, as always, served as my authority on all things Costa Rican, especially real estate. During my stay, Carlos served as my driver and guide for a weekend side trip to several beaches and proved why he's...

When you first talked to me about your mission and reason for returning to Costa Rica to improve on your Spanish, I was a little apprehnsive. Not because you were not a nice person but because not everyone can adapt to the culture here in Costa Rica. Most of us don't understand what it means by third world. Thee was...

The great reviews are deserved. Jeanetta seemed to have thought of everything: massive and tasty welcome meal, varied breakfasts, pool table, jacuzzi overlooking the garden (unavailable when we were there because it was being refitted), four fluffy towels, hair styling set, TV, rocking chairs on the balcony, strong wifi, nice shower, proper toilet roll (a rarity in Costa Rica) and...

When I started looking at accommodations in Grecia, La Terraza sounded delightful and it was, from the beginning to the end of our week-long trip.

Thanks for the opportunity to serve you. I'm a romantic by nature, after many years of a wonderful marriage, it is hard for me to pass up the opportunity to celebrate with others their very special day. Keep loving each other and come back to see us again.
