The condo complex, "Condominios Las Villas Paraiso" (Paradise Condos), is ideally located in downtown Jaco. Virtually everything is within walking distance from the condo, including fantastic restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, banks, boutiques, a movie theater and much more. Villas del Paraiso is a gated community with 24 hour security. Amenities include private parking, two large swimming pools, two children’s pools, a Jacuzzi, and two large ranchos (covered pavilions) equipped with tables and chairs for the perfect poolside lunch or for enjoying afternoon refreshments.
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.
On the day of arrival I'll try to meet up with you and show you a map of town where I'll point out the best restaurants, markets and things to do. Basically I can help you plan your entire trip and I live in this condo development so I'm easily accessible.
Jaco is a vibrant little town where everything is at your fingertips. It features a beautiful beach, perfect for lounging, sunbathing, swimming, and surfing. However, if you desire a little more adventure than just a day at the beach, there are many tourist attractions within a thirty minute drive. These exciting activities include canopy tours (zip lines), hiking, horseback riding (also offered on Jaco beach), waterfalls, crocodile and mangrove tours, sports fishing, casino gaming, and tours of the beautiful Carara National Park where, if you're lucky, you'll witness gorgeous scarlet macaws in the treetops! Just a bit further down the road (1 hour) you will find the most popular national park in Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio National Park. Want to take in a theatre production? Yes, Jaco even has a theatre - Teatro Jaco.
The condo complex itself is quiet, private and secure with large community pools and conveniently located in the middle of town so you can easily walk to all the action.
Jaco is flat and compact so it's easy to walk almost anywhere although renting a bike is also a good idea. Also taxi's are readily available and you should be able to get anywhere in town for $2-$3.
Shawn is the most efficient and accommodating person I have ever had to deal with on our many travels! If our kitchen was missing something, he would lend us his personal items!
The unit was comfortable and had A/C (other units in this complex had old A/C and were breaking). We had a ceiling fan and a floor fan which kept it cool. The unit itself is tired and ready for an updo, the sofa being the worst to live with. Having said this, they are scheduling it for an apholstering - a good thing.
The complex is kept very clean with maintenance happening almost daily. The pools (2 large pools, a jacuzzi (not hot), and 2 childrens pools) were kept very clean and a delight to cool off in when temperatures are high.
Our neighbours were all great and we met some interesting friends to socialize with.
We are coming back hopefully next year as the town of Jaco meets our needs and we felt very safe here. Many restaurants to choose from and good food.
Everything that I can tell you about Shawn has already been said by other reviewers. I spent two months in Jaco and personally found Shawn , without exception,to be friendly,helpful and professional.
Shawn is a very friendly man. He gave us many information about
His rental and about things to do like zip line canopy tour.
We spent a very amazing week with great SUP sessions in Jaco waves. Thanks for all and Pura Vida !!!!!!
Shawn was always willing to provide any little things we asked for (IE washcloths, beach chairs, restaurant go's and don't's). It's always comforting to travel to another country and feel secure w your choice of residence when the host is reliable and sincere. The condo itself had a beautiful swimming complex and was in an unbeatable location. We were right in everything.
Shawn is a really reliable and great person. Eventhough we didn't get to meet on this trip he provided a lot of excellent information and advice and his place was very comfortable, clean and in a secure complex. The condo is situated near the bus station in Jaco and close to all the main restaurants. And right near the beach. I definitely recommend it.
I had the most amazing trip in Costa Rica and Shawn, as a host played a big part. Even though, we only met briefly on our 1st day, Shawn was very helpful prior to our arrival with information and advice! He was very communicative throughout the entire prior from start to finish and even during our trip!! Shawn even provides you with an info pack full of great info and advice before your trip. From his info pack, we were able to book with the best tour company Costa Rica Vacation Tours (BTW is AWESOME!!) and book excursions according to Shawn's recommendations. Also, we followed his list of great coffee shops, grocery stores and restaurants and there were all TWO THUMBS UP! Shawn even hooked us up with a last minute surfing lesson with an awesome guy named Deyron ( ask for him if you choose to go surfing) and he was a great teacher and with such a big heart. We learned about Deyron that by paying it forward, he teaches kids wood work and how to rebuild old or broken surf boards and then he gives them to kids who can't afford them. He was a gem and by meeting him and others who just want to give back to the community (including Shawn himself) made out trip very worth it and even more memorable. Our visit to Costa Rica exceeded our expectations! Shawn's property is in a great location too! We're less than five minutes away from the beach. 2 minutes away from the best bakery with delicious empanadas and coconut bars, then grocery stores to grab any of your needs. We loved the soda shops that Shawn recommended. The condo was so cute and clean! It was enough space for us and we loved the pool and hot tub on property. It was really nice to have the property enclosed and with a security guard. As a host, Shawn relieved any nerves I've had before my trip and was able to answer all my questions. He was quick to respond to my emails and confirmed anything he had arranged for us prior to our trip. He's super friendly and was a pleasure to deal with as a host (oddly through only email mainly - but very helpful) When (not if) I return back to Jaco, I will definitely stay with Shawn again! Pura Vida!
It was a great experience for us in Costa Rica. Shawn was very helpful and knows everything about Jaco and the surrounding areas. He knew where to go and where not to go. It saved us a lot of time and trouble. He helped us with tour advise and other events happening in town ...
The condo is a little older and hasn't been renovated recently but otherwise it has a decent amount of space and is fairly clean. It is good for an extended stay and I would probably stay there again. Shawn was super nice and super helpful. A great host. The location in Jaco is great and even the pool is pretty nice.
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.
I cannot say enough about Shawn and the Paradise Condo! Shawn was a great host and went out of his way to make us feel welcome during our stay. Upon our arrival, Shawn came over and gave us great tips and suggestions for things to do during our stay. Make sure you check out the beautiful sunset he suggests! The location is perfect as well. It is a two minute walk from the beach and close to many restaurants and shops. It is in a gated community with a nice pool as well. Definitely a great place, location, and wonderful host! Pura Vida!
