This two 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, WIFI and the community has large shared pools.
There are two bedrooms along with the kitchen and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the small 2nd bedroom also has a queen size. In the living area there is a sofa bed.
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 aslo 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 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.
We stayed for a month in this condo and it was an absolutely fantastic experience from beginning to end. The apartment was well-appointed and comfortable (and included things like reliable internet access, which was imperative for work), and Shawn himself could not have been more helpful -- he took time to acclimate us to the town and immediately followed up with any random request we had, from lightbulbs to outings. We would gladly stay again!
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 an awesome host. We had a great communication through the whole process. When we arrived we found a very clean and nice place. Shawn came by later in the afternoon to introduce himself and give us some tips. Truly a nice gesture since he was busy.
About the condo, the location is simply the best on Jaco. Everything is close, the beach is just across the street. The common areas are clean and their rules make them a very good place to spend some time at the pool.
Totally recommend Shawn's properties!
Shawn was an amazing host! The condo was nice, clean and comfortable. If traveling to Jaco I highly recommend booking with Shawn!
Shawn was a great host, very helpful and accommodating! The condo is try to the pictures and close to everything you could possibly need.
Beach is not even a 5 minute walk down the road, good coffee nearby.
Make sure to stop by Pizza Pata downtown, and you will not regret it.
Great stay, great condo.
The condo is nice, clean, good efforts at bug screening, etc. As typical for the whole country not everything is full-on american standards... but that is why we travel. There had been a minor issue with a shower drain but that was easily and quickly resolved with some work by Shaun's contactor. Shawn went out of his way to initially orient me to the town (he supplies an excellent orientation packet before you arrive) and to check in during my stay to see if there were other things that he could assist me with. The security guards at the gate were similarly helpful and pleasant to interact with. There was a nice little ex-pat community within the condo that was also a pleasure to occasionally interact with as I went about my business and travels (Manuel Antonio, Crocodile Tour, and four hour ATV ride are all on the "must do" list... sadly the volcano tour and 1/2 day bill fishing never quite got done).
Shawn was a great host and very responsive. The condo was exactly as described and made for a great Costa Rica experience. Will look Shawn up again on my next visit.
I stayed at Paradise Condos for 7 weeks and had a great, relaxing time.
I didn't need much, but when I did, Shawn was at the ready. When I arrived he stopped by and gave me map of the town with a run-down of his recommended restaurants, the best grocery store, and his preferred surf shop. And when I wasn't able to find a steamer basket for cooking my vegetables and asked him which stores might carry one, a loaner just appeared at my door.
Unlike some other places I've seen, the condo pictures are accurate. The only difference is the master bedroom, where the bed has been moved so the head is under the wall hanging and not up against the window. (It's an improvement.)
Fun place to stay - Shawn was a great host!
It's official...we are in LOVE with Jaco Beach! Shawn's condo was great. He has the place stocked with pots, pans, utensils, TP, towels and bed sheets and the location is perfect (just across the street from the beach). The air conditioner works perfectly (believe me- we used it and needed it after coming in from outside. Jaco gets muy caliente!) Be sure to rent bikes (it's the #1 best piece of advice that Shawn gave) and definitely eat at Pili Pili restaurant; the place trumps every other restaurant I've ever been to.
Shawn is a wonderful host. He lives in the same complex, works right down the street and was available to answer any questions we had. We realized we needed an iron once we got there so I emailed Shawn and just an hour later one was waiting for me at the door. He even stopped by the first evening to make sure that we had everything we needed and checked in midweek to make sure we were still ok. Awesome! Overall my boyfriend and I were very satisfied with our experience and cannot wait to go back to Jaco Beach!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
