Welcome to the Chill Inn
The chill place to stay when visiting the city
Guesthouse outside San Jose, Costa Rica
We’re a guesthouse, located in the countryside, in the outskirts of San Jose, Costa Rica. We're located just 420 meters from the La Guacima exit off Highway 27, which runs from San Jose to the Pacific Coast. That puts us just 15 minutes from the airport ($5-10 Uber), on back roads all the way, and 20 from downtown San Jose, CIMA Hospital, Multi-Plaza Mall, etc.
About the inn
The Inn is run Airbnb style, meaning our guests pay prior to or upon arrival, and there is no check in or check out. You punch a key pad to drive in and park, and another to get your key. Room cleaning and laundry are available as extras.
Within a safe and lushly landscaped compound, we offer six rooms for daily rent, plus a 2-bedroom Little House. Each unit gets one free inside-the-compound parking spot. Longer term or extra parking through third parties can be arranged.
WiFi works everywhere. The rooms and Little House all come with high thread-count cotton sheets, private bathrooms with hot water, flat screen cable TVs, private porches with hammocks and/or lounge chairs, coffee makers, etc. (see Rooms and/or Little House).
All guests may enjoy the rancho-style common area with hammocks, ping-pong, darts, sink with running water, ceiling fans, bathroom, and a shared refrigerator where you can store food and drinks.
We have ample gardens with 17 different kinds of delicious fruit trees, for a total of 27; play areas for children, with swings, a see-saw, climbing bars, etc.; and an under-roof BBQ area with gas grill, sink, hammocks, tables, and chairs.
Nearby Services & Attractions
There is much to see and do in the area, including visiting Poas Volcano, the Butterfly Farm, equestrian centers and polo playing, and of course the Pacific Coast beaches.

Breakfast is available Monday through Saturday at 8 AM for about $5 in the restaurant next door. A bakery just down the road a minute driving, and a fruit stand and grocery store across the street, open every day at 6 AM. Local restaurants will deliver food to your room. In-room pedicures and manicures can be arranged upon request.
The parents of one of the owners still reside across the street, while a brother, Abel Araya, who speaks only Spanish, is the live-in, on site manager. He will be happy to help you out!
