I've never been in Costa Rica. But my stay there was great. Everyone was kind and helpful, everyone was like a family!
Doug who lives on the property took us on tours and showed us everything. When I injured my leg he was there to help me and get me around.
Thank you everyone for being there and making my my friend and me feel so welcomed.
Im only sorry I was not able to meet Curt.
Very central location, Curt is a great guy, really appreciated how he picked us up at the airport and arranged different outings for us during our trip. It really made the difference for a great trip.
The condo was comfortable and convenient to everything. For local things everything is within walking distance. Thanks!
Curt was great. Needed a place last minute and he responded very timely. Place was very clean, secure, air conditioned. Curt was very helpful with local attractions and what to do in the area. Thanks!!
We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you, Curt.
Curt was very friendly and accommodating. The Condo was as advertised, everything worked perfectly. Curt was available to answer questions and arrange activities (he helped us book a great surfing lesson, even arranging for transportation.) Curt's enthusiasm about Jaco and connections there made the trip worry free and really enjoyable. I highly recommend him as a host.
Nice affordable 2 bed room condo! The host (Curt), local staff and neighbors were friendly and helpful. It was very easy to book, convenient location, safe and small gated community. You can walk to everything including the super market, hardware store, banks and pharmacy. The main strip, beach and restaurants are few blocks away. We enjoyed local food (cheap and tasty) at popular SODA next door with great breakfast and lunch menu. There is a Dental Care Clinic steps away which accommodated a walk-in appointment. The public bus (USD 5) leaves town every two hours that takes you right at the International Airport (San Jose) in 1 hour 30 minutes. Elencanto will be a place to call home in the next trip Jaco Beach!
Excelente la atención brindada, muy atentos a las necesidades y el lugar está muy bonito, aseado, grande, cerca de la playa, con una piscina pequeña pero apenas para lo que uno necesita, al final de cuentas uno va a la playa no a la piscina. Todo pura vida
It was a lovely place and i liked very much the apartement. Curt and his wife were much pretty. The place is situed in jaco near of the center and no problem to do everythings. I apprecied very much that i could take a bycliette 'curt for visiting jaco. In the condominium the swimming pool was very nice and i love the flowers and plants in the garden. Thank you curt
Hello fellow adventurous. This was my first time using AirBnB and my first time booking my eleven day stay at the El Encanto. Curt and his staff made me feel right at home in a new country that I had not visited before. From first booking and quick response. Call back and email I received on advice on what to bring and things to avoid. Once I arrived I was greeted and shown my condo. It was clean and very spacious. After I had gotten settled in and relaxed. I was offered a ride to one of the local super markets. Curt was very helpful in recommendations in store and on currency. Use of local currency is much easer to use then USA or Canadian currency after one gets the hang of it. Every person was very helpful in this regard from the locals to my host. I was given a personal over view of Jaco. Things again on what to avoid and( personal safety ect.) First night was pleasant and had a good sleep. Curt and Doug also operates a tour company. They helped me book the different adventures I was interested in. I was also offered personal guided tours with both Curt and Doug and later with Doug which I really enjoyed the most. Both being within my age group. From mountain, horse back riding to national park adventures and in room massage by a highly recommend massage therapist. I was taken to a surf competition for both the ladies and men. Now if you like people watching, that is a most to take in. I came away from knowing little to learning a lot about the area from travelling approximately two hours in each direction from Jaco. I also went on the day trip to Tortuga Island. Curt had booked this for me and the next morning was picked up and spent a great day out at sea and then enjoyed snorkelling, beach activities. Only draw back was my mistake. I never brought my credit card. You Can go horse back riding, rent a jet ski or just rent boards or other water sports equipment, when on the Island. This was my first and not my last visit to Costa Rica. There are many more good things to say about my host and my trip. But I am running out of word space. If you are looking for a safe place to stay and possible getting personal guided tours. I highly recommend staying at The El Encanto Condominiums. It is a short walk to the beach and main area of Jaco. The price for the off season was very reasonable. From young to older adventures that I have met staying here. I rated my stay based on price cleanness and the wow experience. If you are the type that needs complete luxury and being pampered. This is not the place for you. But if you are looking for reasonable priced, safe and clean, just go for it!...
