This one bedroom condo is located on the main strip in Jaco so you can walk to dozens of restaurants, shops, markets, the cinema, performance theatre and ocean in 5 minutes.
The condo is equipped with a kitchen, A/C, cable TV, internet, phone and large community pools.
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.
This condo has bikes that are available to rent for a very affordable price.
I would be glad to help you plan everything from airport transportation to booking tours or renting surfboards or bikes. I’ve lived in Jaco for over 9 years so I can also give you restaurant recommendations and fun things to do.
Shawn is an outstanding host. He made sure to drop by and give me a detailed orientation of Playa Jaco with a map and a sharpie. Shawn also is a surfer so I was able to pick up some local knowledge.
The place was clean, safe and nice. I'd highly recommend Shawn as a host and a trip to Playa Jaco.
Shawn was very friendly. We checked in and it was nice of him to take his time to recommend us places to go and avoid. We had a nice stay at his condo. Go check out Tsunami sushi while your there too.
Shawn was very helpful and pleasant. The first day he guided me thru the map where everything I needed was locataed. very nhice experience
Shawn is a gentleman ! He is very helpful and always there to give you greats tips. The condo is nice and close to everythings in Jaco. The condo complex is awesome and secure by guards at the entrance. I highly recommend this place !
Our best accommodations in Costa Rica! After a rather disappointing stay in the Caribbean side of CR, we came to Jaco with low expectations. We had prepared for the worst - prostitutes, drugs, loudness, dirtiness, etc. Well, I can assure you that NONE of that was apparent during our stay, and Shawn's little 1 bed vacation home was incredible! The place literally has everything you need and more. It is a home away from home - the kitchen is fully outfitted (coffee maker, toaster, microwave, etc.), the shower actually has hot water, the bedroom has AC, the TV had cable, the room has a working telephone! With high ceilings and plenty of light, we were hardpressed not to consider moving here permanently after our wonderful stay. The location is also excellent. It's just north of Downtown Jaco, so it's away from the noise and busy-ness, but it's only a 5 minute walk away from great restaurants and is literally across the street from the beach. Just thinking about this place makes me want to return!
The place was great! It was clean, it had A/Ca kitchen, and shower was nice. Shawn, the host, was helpful, like other comments said he sits with you t give you helpful tips about the town. Go see Villa Caletas for the sunset, even if cloudy its worth it. I every much enjoyed my stay and would go back again!
Shawn was an excellent host. As everyone has mentioned, he went over a map of Jaco with us and showed us places to eat, things to do, etc. He also booked our tours for us and got us a great deal on a canopy tour. Towards the end of our stay, we had to leave a day early because of a death in the family. This was very unexpected, but shawn reserved a shuttle to get us to the airport, and he even offered us money in case we couldn't afford the travel tax. This went beyond my expectations and I was very impressed.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Paradise Condo for 4 nights and had a great time. The condo is in the perfect place in Jaco - right on the main street and just a short walk down to the beach. Shawn was a really helpful host. In Jaco there are lots of restaurants and bars, but he has tried them all and knows the best spots, which is super helpful if you're trying to avoid the retired/drunk gringo crowd. Good place for surfers, young people, and relaxing on the beach.
We had a great time staying in this condo. The place is pretty spacious, has all the essentials such as kitchen accessoires, enough towels (beach / bathroom) as well as fast wifi. The condo is very clean, the bed is comfortable and the ac works perfectly. The whole "Las Villas Paraiso"-complex is very quiet and we also enjoyed the pool area. The beach is also just a short walk down the street. Shawn and his wife Hannah were very kind towards us. All their recommendations in terms of restaurants, tours, etc turned out to be awesome! We'd always stay here again!
Great location. Place was comfortable & Shawn super helpful. Would go back
