Tirza’s Zen Den

Welcome to Tirza’s Zen Den

A sanctuary to stay and recover located in Escazú, San Jose

Hi There !

I am a Southern California native, and my husband LeRoy is from Omaha, Nebraska.

As of January of 2021, we started our ninth year here, in Escazú, Costa Rica. This is our home and we love living here!

Our neighborhood, a quiet, residential, guarded community, has easy access to all. Loma Real mall is a five-minute walk away, with a pharmacy, mini mart, hair salon, bike store and the best empanadas around town! A ten-minute walk in the opposite direction, brings restaurants, a small grocery store/fresh bakery and a pharmacy or two.

I have been a massage therapist for 29 years, and a mammography technologist for 15 years. I have been a caretaker since my brothers were born, and cared long term for my grandmother after the passing of my mother. My friends call me T-mama, as I’m mother hen with zen!

We enjoy our amazing views here, and I love to read, workout and cook. Lucky for me, I can do everything here at the Zen Den, which is relaxing and quiet, perfect for a healing atmosphere. Rocking chairs outside and a sun room inside, awaits you!

Recover at the Zen Den

I charge a flat, all-inclusive $110 per night and that includes the following:

  1. Your transportation from and to SJO airport. *For Dr Lev surgery patients, your consultation appointment the day before surgery, surgery day and post op visits to Dr. Lev’s office are included. Carlos will escort you into your appointments and wait for you. On surgery day he will take you to the clinic and walk you in and wait until you are successfully admitted. Then he will come back the next day to pick you up and bring you back to the Zen Den. For other medical/dental procedures, transportation will be discussed.

  2. You will be given the Golden Room, (if you have a companion, at an additional fee, they may stay in the Sun room, or the Lilac room) with a private bathroom. There is an additional guest bathroom as well.

  3. A fully stocked kitchen with fresh foods, condiments etc. is at your disposal, and I welcome your list of likes, and will do my best to have foods prepared that you enjoy. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions. You are welcome to prepare other foods as well.

  4. Post-op meals the first few days, will be prepared and served to you until you can manage to serve yourself. This consists of fruit smoothies, different soups and blended foods that you can tolerate. Until your bandages and stitches are removed, and you can open your mouth, those are the recommended meals for you.

  5. Moveable (so you can watch in the bedroom or Sun room) flat screen cable TV / Roku for Netflix- the Lilac room TV has Roku only.

  6. I will also manage your meds for you (so you know when to take your pain and antibiotics, and other prescribed medicines) as well. All of your prescribed medication needs to be filled before your surgery day.

  7. I will look in on you several times a day and make sure you’re fine and comfy.

  8. Access to beach chairs, blankets, towels, ice chests etc for any day trips you may wish to take.

 I ask that you send me a non-refundable $100 deposit to hold the room for you. You can pay me the deposit through Pay Pal ( and I would like the balance of what you owe to be paid in cash (USD) when you arrive at the house.

Write me

Have a nice day and I’m here if you need any help
