MILLION DOLLAR VIEW from Affordable, Safe, Well Located, Clean, Quiet, 3 bedroom condo with all the amenities only l block from the beach. FUN IN THE SUN. JUST LIKE HOME. 24/7 guard and gated entrance. Quiet part of town near restaurants, grocery, shops, but not in middle of noisy, trafficky part of town. Many EXTRAS like DVD movies, Games, Full Kitchen, even Spices and Smoothie Maker. FUN and SUN. OCEAN and SURF VIEW from the 8th floor of this FULLY FURNISHED LUXURY 3 bedrooms, 2 baths CONDO. So close to beach, you can see the size of the surf. Gorgeous manicured grounds and 24/7 guarded gate entrance.

Your Home away from home. Extras like two cable tvs, two DVD players, games and movies for all ages and likes. Even spices and appliances and accessories to cook with. Washer & dryer so you can pack light.

The host will offer you many tips on how to better enjoy your adventure in Costa Rica.

You can see the ocean from your bed when you wake up or while you eat or sit in your family or dining room or balcony. You can watch the sunset from your balcony while you barbeque. Unit has 3 balconies and two bedrooms, dining room, and family room have beach and ocean view. The other bedroom has mountain views. It is just very relaxing and soothing to be able to watch the ocean or sunset from the condo.

The ocean is clean, always warm, and the beaches are uncrowded. Plus, staying in this luxury fully furnished condo is like a home away from home. It has everything you could want. It has internet, cable tv, DVD, air conditioning separately controlled in each room, a full kitchen with all appliances if I want to cook instead of going out. (Kitchen has refrigerator, freezer, oven, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, microwave, disposal, coffee maker, toaster oven, and blender, cooking utensils and accessories, and dishes.) It has a family room and dining room. Bedrooms and baths come with linens and towels. Catered meals are available.

The pool is too long to swim from one end to the next. Plus, at one end are three jacuzzis.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Beautiful view from the terrace accept the sunset is obstructed by the Best Western across the street. Very roomy, clean bathrooms, washer-dryer and fridge are in good working order.
    Some negatives include awkward communication with landlord (e-mails and illegible post-its all over condo), difficulty getting electricity on upon arrival due to poor communication,
    broken air conditioner in one of the guest rooms and was brutely hot in there,
    broken bed in master bedroom (7 of the wood slats acting as a box spring fell out daily, very labor intensive to fix),
    day 3 the lock on condo front door just stopped working,
    no wi-fi (landlord claims it works but we suspected he is not paying for service, thus it only barely works, when standing in corner by fridge),
    no land line, the stove top and microwave don’t function,
    it’s too complicated to explain but that’s the bottom line.

  • Well first it was very difficult to reach Michael at the beginning, then there was major confusion with payment as I have ended up paying for this reservation twice and I still have not gotten my money back and it seems no-one knows where the money is. Michael had even threatened to change the key codes if he didn't receive payment even after I had proven that I had paid him out of my account. Second, the air conditioning did not work in the living room, the shower off the master bedroom spat water all over the place, the internet did not work and finally it looked like someone had started to fix and paint the walls but didn't finish. All in all it was one of the worst experiences of my life and I wouldn't recommend this property or recommend dealing with this host to even my worst enemy.

    Response from Michael:

    The problem with the payment was that he booked last minute for a night that was not available. Then we had to book a new reservation that he had to pay for again. Airbnb assured me he would get first payment back. That is not in my control. There are two bathrooms. Guest below just left the property with no complaints about a/c or the shower. Each room has an a/c so if one did not work, the place is still cooled. Wi-fi works as many guests write me on it. Sometimes the clouds do temporarily interfere with the signal. Patrick is the first to ever leave a bad review on any of my many sites over many years. The threat was because I let him in on an oral agreement to rent before he paid on his promise to pay and then he did not until after I had already let his entire family in for l night. I know of no one else that would have let him in without prior payment.

Helping you book enjoy my condo, Jaco, and Costa Rica
Living in the Arizona desert, I love going to the warm beaches of Costa Rica where you can always swim, surf, fish or dive. The condo is affordable, safe, quiet, in a great location with great amenities. It is my home away from home. Go to (website hidden) for more photos and information. I like Costa Rica MUCH better than Hawaii-- less expensive and less crowded. No hurricanes like the Caribbean. I love the adventure, activities, wildlife, scenery. I have enjoyed it many times a year since I bought it in 2010. I furnish it the way I want my home to be when I am there, including movies and games. I have enjoyed the surfing, zip lining, monkeys, birds, hiking, snorkeling, sunsets, beauty, and friendly helpful people. The fishing is world famous. The language is not a problem as many are bilingual. The country and condo are not Third World, with water you can drink from the tap and electricity without adaptors. When you book with me, I also help you enjoy your adventure with many tips from me and past guests. Pura Vida. You will not want to leave Costa Rica.
