Welcome to Costa Rica!
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, 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 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.
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!
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 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!
You definitely have to stay at Paradise Condo!
Shawn is an awesome host. Very professional, organized and friendly. When I booked the reservation, Shawn sent me quickly a confirmation email and a PDF explaining everything I had to know about transportation from the airport etc. When we arrived, he spent time to let us know the best things to do in the city, his favourite places etc. He even went further and when a play or something was going to happen, he would make sure we were aware.
The location of the condo is also perfect. 2 minutes walk from the beach, restaurants and shops. This is also really secure! The condo has everything you need and is really comfy.
I would definitely recommend staying there, you won't regret it! One of the best vacation in my life.
great place, Shawn was a great host, he gave us some good recommendations for places to go out and we had a great time there!
Shawn is an awesome host! The condo was clean, well kept and in a perfect location. Shawn did everything possible to add to an already great experience. He has great taste and his tips and suggestions were right on point. When I make it back to Jaco I will definitely be staying at his place again. Pura vida with Shawn for sure!
Shawn was a fantastic host, he went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed.
My boyfriend and I had an excellent stay. The condo is simple, clean and conveniently located.
On our first day, Shawn presented himself with a large tourist map of Jaco, a sharpie pen, and placed it on our dining room table and started to circle and highlight all the best places that Jaco had to offer as well as other sites worth seeing close-by. We very impressed and used the map for practically our entire stay. I should add that we ended up extending our stay for another night because we felt so comfortable.
Shawn is a great guy, very friendly, easy going and very accommodating!
