The house is located down the hill a bit from the quaint town of San Antonio de Escazu with its beautiful church overlooking the valley and across from a park. Alongside the park are bakeries and restaurants, providing an authentic experience of Costa Rica, often not felt in the major tourist areas. There are still sugar mills that are oxen-operated so if you are lucky you will catch one at work. Hanging out in the little town of San Antonio you may also see people on horseback and an oxcart or two. And the backdrop of the gorgeous mountains is worth the walk up the hill from the house (10 minutes at most).

About Grace Dyrness
I grew up in Costa Rica and most of my family lives in the Escazu area. My husband and I are both professors in California and we enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of our house in Costa Rica to read, write, and visit with friends. We travel down to Costa Rica about 3 times a year. We like it to be comfortable and hospitable to all those who enter our house.
Grace Dyrness purchased this house in 2004
Why Grace Dyrness chose San Antonio
The location was a principal reason that I bought this property. It is in Escazu which has so many amenities, but it is far enough up the hill to feel more country-like and walking distance to the colonial church of San Antonio. It is next door to the house of my brother and my sister-in-law can watch over the property and see that it remains in excellent condition.
What makes this house unique
The gardens are beautiful with a variety of tropical flowers, brilliant butterflies, and even some fruit trees: bananas, orange/lemon, and avocado. The views of the mountain and the cool weather make it a perfect place to relax.
