Other Things to Note

We are on level four of a building with no lift access so you will have to walk up the stairs. We share a fridge which is located in my kitchen. You will receive one towel per person on arrival but it is your responsibility to have these washed if needed, at your own cost. Please bring extra towels if this is an issue. We are surrounded by jungle here in Costa Rica which means there are some bugs and insects. I do my best to keep them out of the house and spray them but beware (they are friendly not dangerous but they are here.) This building is an older building and has some minor flaws that come with it so please be aware of this. Please put the code word LOVE in your request so I know you have read all the details.

  • HOST
    Tammy is awesome and VERY helpful. If you are new to Jaco I highly recommend staying here because she can answer all of your questions - and she takes the time to give you a proper rundown with having to ask - greatly appreciated.

    ROOM
    The room is big (could fit 4) and has a mini kitchen with a stove. You also get access to Tammy's kitchen (has refrigerator), which isn't in the room but might as well be because it's one step away.

    Another bonus is that it's on the 4th Floor, this means you can hangout on the huge deck all night and not get bug bits.

    Bathroom is nice and big, water pressure good.

    WILDLIFE
    Even though you are not 'in the jungle' perse, you can see all kinds of birds and lizards right from the deck!

    LOCATION / TRANSPORTATION
    Just off the main strip in Jaco. There is a Mas Menos grocery store in walking distance and if you are coming or going from San Jose, Quepos or the like there is a bus stop right out front (you can pay as you get on). There is a casino with two pools and a spa out back. If you need a 'resort day' you can use all their facilities as long as you buy food/drinks.

    The beach is only a 3 min if you go through the casino grounds.

  • What a charming and nice place. Tammy was more than accommodating. Had a wonderful stay. Was able to walk to the main street for eating and shopping, even though I have a limited mobility problem. The stairs were expected so not to bad. I can't wait to go back.

  • Tammy is a wonderful person and host who helped us out tremendously during our 6 day stay. The location is perfect: next to a bus stop if you don't rent a car, walking distance to the downtown area and has a beautiful view from the balcony. The beach is literally a 2 minute walk. We were able to cook with no problem and felt right at home. This is a WAY better option than staying at a hotel. It's not if but rather we revisit that we will stay here again. Thank you for everything!

  • Tammy is a lovely host and her studio next to her great flat is quaint and practical. We stayed there 3 nights and love its proximity to the main street, its large balcony overseeing the beach and high trees, and easy access to the beach. Tammy is super friendly, easy going, caring, and very accomodating. My husband and I really enjoyed 'living' there and getting to know a great gal. We will stay here again if we ever come back to Jaco. Great value for the price.

  • Tammy is a great host, super nice and very responsive to anything we asked. We loved our stay at the studio apt. There is a casino next door, a very quiet and quaint place where we hung out at the restaurant and beach. Beautiful, right in Tammy's back yard. We had a great time! Very safe building and surrounding area.

  • Tammy is a wonderful hostess! She opened her home up in a way I immediately felt like I lived there. Since I am traveling alone, it was nice to make some new friends along the way.

    The location was perfect for me. It is off the main strip of Jaco, away from all the activity, with a wonderful view, nice breeze and sound of the ocean. Every afternoon the macaws are in the trees nearby and it was truly wonderful to hear them and watch nature in its true environment. Town is just a short walk away if you need the store, etc. You can hike up the mountain in the morning and get to the beach for a surf session within a short time.

    There was an issue with the shower and some electric outlets in the room and without even asking she refunded me a days stay. I really didn't expect it, but she really felt bad for the inconvenience. To me that said a lot and meant a lot as I am on a huge budget.

    I will definitely stay with her the next time I am in Jaco. What a treat! :)

  • It was a big pleasure staying with Tammy I felt like I was visiting a friend's house. She is a great host, very friendly and easy going. She helped me with everything needed and was also respectful and discreet when I needed space. Location is perfect, close to the beach and not far from the main street of Jaco. There is a fantastic view from a balcony. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Tammy!

  • Best place in Jaco for sure!

    Tammy is great, it felt like we were staying with one of our close friends. She is there when you need her but always respected privacy. The location is perfect for us because it is super close to all the action but just far enough away to make it extremely peaceful. The view from her balcony is stellar and on our second morning a full grown Macaw, we named him Mitchell, flew directly onto our balcony and hung out for about an hour. Bird watching from this place was awesome and it was just a quick walk to the beach. There was even a beach bar with a pool just 3 min walk from the apartment. If this place is available during your travel dates. Book it!

    Thanks again Tammy !

  • Nice apartment with a nice balcony good for coffee in the mornings or a drink at night. Walking distance to the town and beach or a very short and cheap taxi ride. Tammy is very helpful and the stay was enjoyable.

I'm friendly, positive, in love with life and always up for a laugh. I enjoy keeping fit, I love to socialize, travel, read, and enjoy my life to the fullest. Costa Rica is my favourite place on this planet so far and that is why I have chosen it as my place to live. I love the good vibes here and beautiful nature! I love to host as I get to meet great, interesting people from all over the world. I look forward to each new guest and the experience they bring.
