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.
Even though we arrived about 9:30pm Shawn was right there to greet us we stepped out our taxi. We were greeted with warm handshakes and smiles. He escorted us into our condo explaining things that were important for us to know, and things that would make our stay more enjoyable. He had been in earlier and put the AC. on so when he opened the door it was lovely and cool. Living close by he was never in our face but was always approachable if we needed anything.
Shawn was a perfect host. He spent time detailing a local map and was always available to answer questions.
Just arrived home from a lovely week in Jaco. Shawn's condo was fabulous. It is in a gated community that is clean and very safe feeling. The guards were very kind and checked to make sure only guests came into the property. The condo was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was a life saver. Very quiet at night. Bed was super comfy. Shawn was a great host stopping by to check in on me after my arrival and giving me a list of recommended restuarants and activities to do in town. Even gave us a latern for New Years! Definitely a fabulous place to stay if you are in Jaco!
Shawn is exactly what you hope for from an AirBnb experience. The property was completely clean and a terrific location in town. But beyond that he made himself available to provide terrific insight for the area making it a lot easier to find more time to simply enjoy yourself. I will be back to rent from Shawn again.
Shawn was an awesome host! He welcomed us when we got in and told us about all the best restos and spots to check out in Jaco. The apartment was in a safe area, right on the main strip and a really short walk to the beach. Thanks Shawn for all the recommendations!
My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights and felt incredibly welcomed by Shawn. A few minutes after our arrival he stopped in to meet us and tell us about Jaco. He gave us a map of the town with locations marked for the best places to eat, visit, and explore (most of which were on the long, helpful list that he emailed ahead of time). We managed to go to all but one restaurant and all were wonderful, we also took surfing lessons from his friend's shop! We saw Shawn around town a few times and he made sure to ask if our stay was going well and if we had any questions or if we needed any help. We felt safe, the condo and the complex were clean and centrally located - only a block and a half from the beach! Shawn was a wonderful host and we would happily stay there again if we find ourselves back in Costa Rica!
The unit was small, sweet and perfectly met our needs. The floors were beautiful! It was clean, and had plenty of hot water for showers. The best thing about staying here was the great information Shawn provided. He gave us the low-down on the best places to eat, drink and shop and the experiences not to be missed. He was so friendly and personable that he felt like a trusted friend. With his great direction, we felt like we were not only in paradise, but food heaven. Thanks Shawn!

Originally from Huntington Beach California I came to Jaco Beach Costa Rica on a surf trip in 2004 and never returned. My wife and I have travelled the world but we love to call Costa Rica home with a relaxed lifestyle, friendly locals, warm temperatures all year and terrific warm water waves.
