About this listing

The majority of our guests are repeat visitors that say that staying at Villa Antigua is a 'vacation of a lifetime' and that staying at the Villa is all about the incredible 'experience'. Villa Antigua successfully fuses the emotions of an exotic get-away with luxury and privacy that is hard to replicate.
(special $750 rate applies to M-Wed nights only.)

The space

Villa Antigua is one of the most beautiful luxury homes on the Pacific coast. Nestled in its own private eco-jungle, and only steps from the beach, my home away from home is a private estate with a central green tile pool accented by cascading waterfalls and situated next to a gourmet style kitchen. Just steps to the surf and sand, this is truly one of the most beautiful Costa Rica Villas in Jaco Beach, if not the country!
Located in the most desirable Jaco southbeach and secluded behind a stone privacy wall, the property is bounded by a charming creek with frequent appearances by Scarlet Macaws and white-faced monkeys around the estate, creating your very own personal eco-jungle! If you choose to leave your personal paradise, this gated and secure estate is close to all the Town's amenities which are within walking distance. Notably, the villa's location is also close to the main Pacific highway so that you can easily go north to San Jose or south to Manuel Antinio without having to go through the town. With its developing infrastructure, new theatre, vibrant city life and proximity to all those activities and indulgences that make Costa Rica world famous, Jaco is truly the best Costa Rica location to visit. At this Costa Rica Villa you have World-renowned surfing on your doorstep in Jaco Beach and nearby at Hermosa Beach which holds world class surfing events.

Dan's property was everything as described and more. From the moment that my group and I arrived, it was an amazing experience. Dan's property management company also arranged the transfer of our group from San Jose airport and back for a reasonable fee. The property has a pool that is actually larger than it seems in the pictures. There were security guards on duty at all times and were there to assist with calling cabs and answering questions about the town. Although our group was vigilant and cleaned up throughout the day, it was nice to have housekeeping come in every morning to remove the garbage, make the beds and give us fresh towels. We also like the location of the property, which has a beach just steps away. It was no more than a 10-15 minute walk to the town strip. We enjoyed the spacious rooms and the main floor with the living room and the large open concept kitchen. The house is well appointed with solid furniture and kept well throughout. The only slight issue was the A/C not working in one of the rooms and it was taken care of in about 2 days. I would highly recommend Villa Antigua to anyone visiting Jaco. For the price and quality, it cannot be beaten.

Great communication, nice house, awesome staff. everything was great except for the mattresses on a couple of rooms, they were very very uncomfortable however Dan is already aware. Other than that everything else was as described.

The best part of renting this home was the Property Manager, Maura. She was a great help booking taxi's, reserving dinners and booking trips for us. She went above and beyond helping our family of 8 adults. There was always someone at the home to help with any questions we had. During the day Nixon looked after us, putting up the tent on the beach for us and calling a taxi if we needed one. There was someone coming in to make the beds and clean up the house every day that we were not expecting and she did a great job. Even did some laundry for us, again something we didn't expect. The pool was beautiful, the 4 main bed rooms were large and all had private bathrooms with a shower. The Kitchen, dinning area and Living room were huge and beautiful. Lots of room for the 8 of us. There were 2 rooms in the "Tower" as we called it. These had a shared bathroom but worked well for us as we only used one of these rooms. Wi-Fi did not work in these two rooms. We did have one issue, the hot water quit working and we let Maura know around 7pm at night and it was working by 7am the next morning. Very quick response once we let her know. If you rent this place I'm sure you will have a great time and will leave with a great impression of Costa Rica.

The Villa Antigua is a gorgeous home. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Each room has a n AC unit for those hot Costa Rican days and it's less than a minute from beach; an amazing beach. The staff that works at Villa antigua are extremely nice and helpful. They'll help with any need from groceries and food and point you in the right direction with local activities. The home also gets cleaned every morning, which makes you feel like you're in a 5 star hotel. Dan is very prompt in responding to any questions you might have and helpful with any planning recommendations. It was my first visit to Costa Rica and it was incredible partly because of this amazing home. I will definitely return and visit Costa Rica again and Dan's Villa Antigua home is a place I highly recommend. Perfect for any group.

It was our pleasure hosting you and you group Paolo. We designed and built the Villa from the ground up to accommodate groups and families and to create an ambience that isn't easy to match. My team prides themselves on service, responsiveness and accommodating our guests to help create an 'experience' that won't soon be forgotten. Thanks again for choosing us Paolo! Dan

This house is awesome, it is as special as you think! This was perfect for our family trip and super convenient to surf everyday. The kitchen is really well stocked, we even make a full Thanksgiving dinner for 11. If you have small kids the house might not be perfect for you because of the open, central pool but we made it work even with little ones. Thank you Dan I will love to return to our house next time we are in Jaco.

I'm from CA and have a passion for nice homes. Villa Antigua was originally built as a spec home but I fell in love with the area, the architecture and how the villa turned out - it was beyond my expectations so I decided to keep it as a vacation home and allow others to enjoy it as well.
