About Sherri-Lee Parsons
My husband and I recently retired to Kelowna British Columbia Canada. We love spending our summers in Canada and our winters in Costa Rica. We have travelled all over the world and when we got off of the airplane in Costa Rica we knew that this was going to be the place for us. The lushness of the rain forest, the Toucans, Macaws, the monkeys all of the wildlife is amazing. The ocean is magnificent and getting up in the mornings and going for a run on the beach brings the serenity and peace that everyone should have in their lives. Ending the day with cocktails on the beach and a sunset viewing is absolutely wonderful. Treat yourself because you deserve it.
Sherri-Lee Parsons purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Sherri-Lee Parsons chose Jaco
This is a beautiful property with only 36 units, three good size pools and a children's pool. The complex is family oriented and it has a cozy feel to it. Even when it's busy it's never too much. There is an onsite property manager who speaks English so whatever your need may be Juan Carlos is here to help. Security is excellent and we have a very beautiful beach right out front. It's our little piece of paradise that we would like to share with you.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo complex is a wonderfully family oriented environment. The residents whether permanent or vacationers are always friendly and eager to help. The complex has a wonderful small community feel to it. Our unit is poolside and as you sit at the dining table you can look through the buildings and see the ocean. It is an absolutely wonderful place. Being ground floor and pool side allows us quick and easy access to the pool and the beach. Our unit is quite modern with granite couter tops, tile floors, cable TV and internet access. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms make it a perfect destination for two couples or a family.

Our first trip to Costa Rica and our condo was perfect. Staff go above and beyond to make sure our needs are met. The location was perfect and just close enough to downtown.
So happy you were happy. Please come back :)
Another great stay at Paloma Blanca
This was our 4th time staying at Paloma Blanca - the second time in this unit.
The unit was great! Exactly as described! Had a great stay!
Our stay at La Paloma Blanca was wonderful. The property is maintained to near perfection. The staff works round the clock making La Paloma Blanca beautiful. They are also the nicest people that work there. I can not give enough praise for all they do. Our unit was very nice and comfortable. We had everything we needed there. The location was to oir liking. It is away from town on the south side of the beach. Easy walk into town but away from the busier section. The beach was not crowded. All in all, we look forward to returning to this same spot!
Than you so much Donna. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay
Property great and location perfect- Unit had some issues
We love Jaco and come every year for surfing. Chose this property based on location to surfing beach. The resort is great and the staff very friendly. This unit however has issues. It was not clean! We travel alot and are not super picky understanding it is beach and tropics. But greasy dishes and utensils, mold on the walls, ceiling vent that leaked brown stuff onto toilet... Yuck! The other issue was supplies. I get that there may be reasons to not leave tons of extra stuff because people would feel entitled to take home. BUT... we were left only two garbage bags for a family for whole week. When we asked for more and more toilet paper (only supplied two rolls per bathroom) we were told the owner only allows that much and we would have to supply the rest on our own. I honestly have never had this response! When i am paying close to my mortgage for 1 week I do expect a bit more...
Hello. I'm very sorry that you had this experience.
My husband and I pride ourselves on having a beautiful and well maintained condo as we live there for 5 months of the year. We keep it will stocked with dishes, containers etc. Last year we redecorated and we do our best to stay on top of things.
As you see from other reviews your experience was definitely an exception. The issues you have brought up will be addressed and the condo will be in excellent condition once again.
I wish you had let us know there was a problem. We would have fixed it immediately. I'm concerned about the drip from the fan and the mould and I have notified our property manager and we are having this looked at and will get it resolved immediately.
If you had let us know while you were there we would have taken care of it then.
Regarding the supplies it is standard practice with all of the condos in our development to only supply garbage bags and toilet paper for the first few days. Enough time for you to be able to go to the grocery store. I'm sorry you didn't contact me to let me know how unhappy you were. I could have made an exception.
I do apologize for your experience. If we had been aware of the situation we would have made things right immediately
Can’t wait to come back!
We had an amazing time!! From the day we booked to leaving we were completely taken care of! Any question we had was answered in less than 24hrs!
The place was clean and felt very safe! We can’t wsit to go back!!
So happy you had a great vacation 😎😊
We just returned home a great 10 day stay at the condo. Everything was exactly as described and very clean. Perfect location right by the pool and the unit was stocked with plenty of pool and beach towels.
The owners, Andy and Sheri Lee, are very attentive and accommodating. They went out of their way to grant us early access to the condo on our day of arrival.
I would, without a doubt, recommend staying here!!!
La Paloma Blanca is a real gem found on the South end of the beach in Jaco. What makes it so special is that we have both a garden area on one side of the complex and the beach on the other side of the complex. Jaco is a great spot to stay to see many great attractions of Costa Rica. La Paloma Blanca is a smaller gated condo complex with four buildings and only 36 units. There are three pools and a kiddie pool so there is lots of room for whatever you want to enjoy. Socializing and meeting others or just relaxing enjoying some time for yourself and reading a book. In the front of our complex is a great beach to learn surfing and Tortuga Surf School is right out front to rent surf boards and provide you with a lesson. Right behind us is the beautiful rain forest for the birding enthusiast. I highly recommend enjoying your morning coffee by sitting in the garden and listening to and watching the birds. Often Macaws fly by and there have been Tucans spotted in the tree. Once a sloth came and visited for a couple of days and stayed in the tree near the bamboos. It was only once but it was a blessing. Or take your coffee out to the beach and enjoy watching the pelicans dive into the ocean for their breakfast. An hour and a half south is the beautiful and well known Manuel Antonio National Park where all wildlife can be viewed: Monkeys, Sloths, Ant Eaters,Iguanas and more and many species of birds. You will also find an amazing swimming beach in the park. Even better and a bit closer (12 km North of Quepos) is the Monkey Mangrove Tour where you can take a boat out into the mangroves, enjoy a wonderful ecological tour, and if yo are lucky the wild monkeys will come and visit and come aboard the boat. About 40 minutes north is the famous Tarcoles crocodile viewing bridge and just before that is Carerra National park and a beautiful waterfall hike. There is so much to see and do. Make sure to catch the sunset. Take your cocktail out to the beach for viewing between 5:15 and 5:45 depending on the time of the year. Even closer to us every Saturday and the neighbouring Hermosa Beach is a surf competition at the backyard bar. Every cab driver knows it and it's just an $10 ride and about a 10 minute drive South. If you are a golfer there is the beautiful La Iguana golf course. It's about a 10 minute or $14 cab ride to the North. Located in the community of Los Suenos you will also find the Los Suenos Marina where you will be awed by the stunning boats and if you are missing North America you can enjoy some of the restaurants while enjoying the amazing view. Something to do for everyone.
