Jaco is the most developed beach town in Costa Rica, but it still remains a very small surfing community. While most beaches in Costa Rica are more like villages which can be very secluded and difficult to access, Jaco has many restaurants, conveniences, amenities and services that are important to having a great vacation. Many people say Jaco reminds them of old California surf towns from the 70s. Jaco provides a great vibe of rustic Costa Rica that remains authentic.
The condo is centrally located so all the stores, bar and restaurants are within a 12 minute walk from the condo. Taxi are ready available and arrive within 2 mins. The property has a fenced in, secure parking lot with cameras and 24/7 security. We would be happy to make arrangements for your transfers to and from the airport in a private, air conditioned tourist bus.

Our stay at this condo has been very pleasant. The place was clean on arrival & the view of the beach from the balcony was amazing. Prior to our arrival, Phil helped us arrange transportation from and to the airport. Having the washer & dryer made it convenient to do laundry after returning from excursions. There are plenty of restaurants and shops located within walking distance. I would highly recommend this condo.
Bhumesh, it was a pleasure hosting you and your friends. The view from the front balcony never gets old, that is what sold us on the condo. Being centrally located means everything in town is no more than a 15 min walk from the condo which is very convenient. Pura Vida, Phil and Evelyn
Thank you so much for a perfect vacation! Your condo is everything you said it would be and more! Breakfast with coffee overlooking the beautiful Playa Jaco from the 9th floor was spectacular. Truly a perfect place in a perfect place! Also, the management company was very responsive to any maintenance request we had. And they also helped us arrange transportation for all 6 of us from the SJO airport both on our arrival and departure.
So, bottom line, this was a fantastic vacation! We look forward to next year, and we would highly recommend your condo.
John, you are very welcome, what a wonderful way to spend Fathers Day. That is also one of my favourite things to do at the condo, waking up in the morning and enjoying a coffee on the balcony watching the surfers catch a wave. Tranquil !!!
Glad we could be help make your stay the fantastic vacation it was. Pura Vida, Phil and Evelyn.
Our stay in Jaco was absolutely amazing! Easily one of the best, if not the best, part of our stay in Costa Rica! The condo has absolutely everything you could need or want! We traveled as a group of friends (2 couples and three singles) and we had plenty of space for privacy and personal space. However, the community areas were spacious and gorgeous too! I would highly recommend this place for a large group or family! The best part was the view and the sunsets were absolutely incredible! Just a few things to take note of...the security at the pool is pretty intense. They would not allow any drinks in the pool (not even water in plastic cups). You had to get out of the water to get a drink. Also, they kind of hassle you every time you came or went. Of course, this has nothing to do with Philip or the place, but be prepared to explain where you are staying and going. However, with that said I wouldn't let that get in the way of coming back. It was a minor thing. The location of the condo is great too, it is walking distance to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, etc! Hopefully I will make it back to Costa Rica someday to enjoy this great place again!
Hi Kacie, thank you for the great review. The view and sunsets from the penthouse is what sold us on the property originally. They never get old !!!! As for the pool rules, drinking in plastic cups is allowed by the edge of the pool but not in the pool itself. We are definitely centrally located, I do not think anything in town is more than a 15 minute from the condo. Till next time, Phil and Evelyn.
What an amazing penthouse. From the moment we walked in, we knew we had made the right decision. Location was right on point as far as distances to the strip and the night spots. Waking up to the sounds of the waves was as relaxing as ever!! I would definitely recommend this spot to guys looking for a nice getaway and couples alike. Top of the line furnishings, convenience, and first-rate staff make this rental well worth the dollar. Philip ensures you a quality experience in Jaco via a start with this penthouse!! Thanks again!! We'll definitely be back!!
Hi Yenabi. Thank you for the great review. Everything in town really is no more than a 15 min walk from the condo in either direction. I cannot tell you know many guests including myself have fallen asleep on the front balcony to the sound of the waves, it is just so relaxing. Take care and till next time. Pura Vida, Phil and Evelyn.
This condo was more than what we were expecting! The view was breath taking, the rooms were spacious, and the furniture on the balconies were definitely welcomed. With each room having its own private bathroom, that was a plus! The pool table alone was an added benefit because we ended up using it more than we thought and the washer and dryer came in handy after our ATV tour.
When it came to any issues we had, Philip was very responsive in getting them resolved to the best of his ability. We did have ants in the kitchen and common area, but with it being Costa Rica we had to make sure to not leave any food or drinks out.
Hands down, I would definitely recommend this condo to any and all travelers.
Robert, thank you for the great review, it was a pleasure hosting you and your friends. The pool table is a great way to relax and socialize after a hard day at the pool or riding around on ATV's LOL. Evelyn and I are always available to our guests to ensure we meet and exceed their expectations. November is the rainiest month of the year and tends to bring out the ants. Even on the 9th floor. We had Mainteneace spray and its always a good idea not to leave food out when staying in the tropics. A lesson we have learned after 13 years of living in Costa Rica. Pura Vida, Phil and Evelyn
Our stay at this condo was incredible. Apart from the amazing view, amenities and easy access to Jaco; Philip was very helpful and responsive to anything we needed. I can't say enough good things and I will definitely be back. Thanks, Philip.
Wonderful Condo located in a gate guarded community equipped with everything you need. We were a group of 5 guys who had a great stay! The views are amazing and location of the condo is truly in the center of everything yet security is of no concern as it is a gate guarded community with an attendant at the gate 24hrs. All the restaurants, bars and nightclubs are all in walking distance to the condo. Not to mention that if you are looking to surf all that you have to do is grab your board and walk downstairs to a nearly perfect break. The condo itself is very comfortable, whether you are looking to sit out on the balcony and watch surfers or whales, stay in cook and watch tv, or get ready to go out and pre/post party you can do it all at this place. The beds are also very comfortable and each room has privacy and dark shades incase you want to sleep in.
Lastly Phil was fantastic, he truly tries to accommodate all of your needs from arranging pickup from airport to the drop off. We had a minor problem at the beginning of our stay, I emailed Phil and within 5 minutes he called and I would say within 25 minutes after speaking to him the problem was resolved.
Simply put a great condo with a HIGHLY attentive host (Phil), I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to have an upscale stay in Jaco.
