About This Listing
This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo has a fully equipped kitchen with 2 burner stove, refigerator, microwave and small appliances. The condo also has A/C in every room, wireless internet, Cable TV, hot water and a large community pool. There is a flat screen TV in the master bedroom and a large TV in the living room.
The condo is located on the main strip in Jaco so you can easily walk to the ocean in 5 minutes and are just steps from restaurants, shops, movie theater and a ton more.
For rentals that are one month or longer you will be responsible to pay the electric bill. This bill will run anywhere from $25 - $300 based on how much you use the air conditioning. For long term rentals I will also need a deposit of $250 on arrival that will be refunded at check out if there are no damages or outstanding electric bills.
The condo association has a very strict policy about renters bringing home guests. If you do not tell me about the total number of guests then the security guards will not let your (s) on the property. Furthermore they only allow a maximum of 6 different people to enter the condo for the duration of your stay. For example, if there are two people in your party then you will be allowed a maximum of 4 guests.
I have bikes, cell phones and a pack and play that I can rent to you really cheap.
I would be glad to help you plan everything from airport transportation to booking tours. I’ve lived in Jaco for over 9 years so I can also give you restaurant recommendations and fun things to do.
Shawn is a very nice guy and good host. He gave us a map and marked all the popular places, most of which were in walking distance, and told us about some of the local specials. There was also an umbrella provided which came in handy. The community in which the condo is located is very secure. It's gated and has guards 24/7 which will let you in and out of the community. The condo is within walking distance to the beach and the main part of the city. It's very easy to get around. There is a bus station a couple blocks away from the condo. You can catch the bus to just about any city for a couple dollars.
Our experience with Shawn was outstanding. He was a generous host, helping us as first-time travelers in Jaco with a toddler. I won't try to list all that went on, but we were nothing but grateful for his presence and efforts. The property was nice, the hood was perfect - quiet but central, family friendly. Great first experience.
I stayed at Shawn's place in JUN/JUL14 for a few days. The pictures do not do the property, or the condo community justice. Shawn's place is a great size for a few friends, couple, or a single person; I went as a solo traveler. The water was hot with great pressure, the bed was comfortable, linens and towels clean and the interior was very open. The two A/C unit worked wonders, even though the fans in the condo are all you really need.
The location of this condo is top notch. First of all, the condo community is very secure, and well maintained. The guards are friendly and are quick to remember who you are. The community also has a pool and a nice hot tub. You are about a five minuet walk away from the beach, which is just a straight shoot down the street once you leave the condo gates! Right outside the condo are food/bar establishments, a bakery, convienance stores, and various business. Jaco is quiet a small town, so within about 8 minuets of walking, you are in the heart of the city, where you have all types of restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, bakeries, business, tour companies, you name it, they have it!
Shawn was very helpful within the prior days to my arrival. He was very quick to respond whenever I had a question. I had to change some of the my travel dates, and Shawn immediately responded and changed the dates, and refunded me the money. Shawn also helped arrange my travel from the airport to Jaco. Upon my arrival, Shawn sat down with me, and mapped out the area, told me things to do, places to stay away from, sights to see and more. I felt very comfortable in this location as a solo female traveler, and see now security issues in town as longs as you have your p's and q's about you!
I am a frequent traveler and always use airbnb when I can. My experience with this condo is amongst the top experiences I have had. Shawn was a great, warm, and welcoming host, and I would suggest this condo to anyone who is going to Jaco!
Best place to stay in Jaco! My wife and I will definitely stay at the Paradise Condos again if we get back to Costa Rica. The condo was just about perfect, well furnished / stocked and even seemed a little bigger than the photos suggest. It's maybe a 2-minute walk to the beach, directly in front of the best part of the surf break in Jaco. The condos are clean, comfortable, quiet and secure.
Shawn is an excellent host! A few weeks before my stay, he let me know that there was a minor issue with the condo we booked (a few loose tiles I think) and moved me to a slightly larger condo for no extra charge. Shawn is really cool, made sure he or his wife was available in case we needed anything, and replied to all my zillion rambling messages full of goofy questions. I couldn't ask for anything more, and I hope our paths cross again!
Shawn was an outstanding host. He was a pleasure to work with, and had great suggestions for how to spend our leisure time in Costa Rica; as well as being a great help for getting us to the airport for our return flight home. We loved how secure the property was (e.g. gated entry with security guard), and how accessible Shawn was. We have nothing but praises to send his way.
The three of us were very satisfied with our stay, the rental was very nice and well kept. Shawn was keen on helping with any questions or concerns we had. Definitely worth the stay!
I came to Costa Rica for one month and needed a base from where I could travel to other places. From all other providers I found Shawn the most precise and reliable. He understood my needs and helped to find the perfect accommodation for me. At the time of arrival he was there to give me a full update of what´s on in Jacó plus documentation on a map. During my stay he managed some of my tours where he could even offer discounts. I am using airbnb for most of my travels (10 -20 times per year) and it is hard to find a better host like Shawn.

About the Host, Shawn
Originally from Huntington Beach California I came to Jaco Beach Costa Rica on a surf trip in 2004 and never returned. My wife and I have travelled the world but we love to call Costa Rica home with a relaxed lifestyle, friendly locals, warm temperatures all year and terrific warm water waves.
