Great location. Awsome house!

The condo is strategically located in one of the best places of Jacó, easy access and with and exit to the beach! Quiet and very spacious, secured house. Would definitely recommend it.

Certainly not what was expected and unsafe

  • 1 of 5

The property we rented was uninhabitable in the condition found. First and foremost the front door lock could not be used because the key had been broken off in the deadbolt. Although we offered to fix for the representative who met us, the tools were not available to do so. This required us to leave the sliding door open and use a garage remote to come in and out to the house. For safety concerns this rendered the property uninhabitable. Next, there was water all over the kitchen floor due to the ice maker being inoperable and frozen. Moreover we found hundreds of live ants all over the home in every room of the house. There were dead bugs in the kitchen and the dishwasher was coming out of the cabinet making this property squalid.

This vacation coincided with a music festival where we had friends staying at other hotels and rooms. I also have family that live near Jaco that wanted to visit. Upon our arrival the representative stated that there could absolutely be no guest/friends visit this property unless we had rented it for 30 days or more. Nowhere was this discussed prior to our arrival. Furthermore, the association president apparently lived across from this property and we are not allowed to be on front porch. In fact, shortly after our arrival she could be seen watching our every move like a jail guard from her window which was less than accommodating and she had a rather lengthy discussion with security which we were not privied to. We were at this property for an hour and had to find other accommodations at our expense.

Owner's Response: This group was upset because they could not have visitors. This is not a party house. We gave their money back. We do not accept this type of traveler

Love from the Heartland

  • 4 of 5

I returned home from my Costa Rican vacation only yesterday and I must say that I already miss it. I travelled to Costa Rica with my 2 sisters and 1 brother to celebrate my 40th birthday and the home accommodated us perfectly. We had no concerns with security because the property is gated on both sides (main entrance and beach access) and security mans the main entrance. Additionally, each bedroom had a safe to stow away any valuables. If I had one recommendation, it would be to have a phone to make local phone calls for food delivery or to call a taxi. None of us spoke Spanish and neither of the guards spoke English so at times it was difficult to communicate to the guards to call a cab for us but towards the end of the trip; we managed to work out a system that worked. We had an absolute blast our entire trip! This was our first time to Costa Rica and Mark as well as Eric Holzgang with Jaco360 made our arrangements so effortless. I highly recommend booking all of your excursions through Jaco360! Each guide was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure that we had an epic adventure. Ziplining was awesome but the ATV tour was phenomenal!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Everything went perfect for our weekend getaway. Mark maintained excellent communication with us from the moment we booked the house. He met us at the property as soon as we arrived, and he gave us invaluable advice for the Jaco area. The home has an excellent pool shared with the other few residences in the area, and the beach is just a short walk down a path with scarlet macaws flying overhead. The home is on the north side of Jaco, so its a quiet area, but a simple 4 minute cab/car ride gets you right into the town's action. The house itself is extremely clean and modern. The bedrooms are large, beds comfortable, and each room has it's own A/C. We drove from San Jose, so the garage was helpful with some of the rain we experienced. There are a few local restaurants nearby in which we had a great time watching some COPA games away from the toursits. Thanks Mark for the memorable weekend! Hope to visit again soon.

Great property and awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a small gated community with security guard which is about 3-4 min cab ride from the Jaco main strip and about 10 min from Playa Hermosa. The property has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It is a very clean and beautiful place with high speed internet, laundry facilities, kitchen, swimming pool, etc. The beach and Tiki bar is walking distance. The property manager (Mark) is also very knowledgeable about the area and was very helpful. In summary, our stay in Jaco was awesome and we would definitely come back again.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location. Nice downtown with many restaurants. Wonderful beach with easy access. Just a few minor inconviences - one key to share between 3 couples; nothing left from prior renters such as salt/pepper & condiments; nice closets, but not one clothes hanger. Nice family holiday, overall.
