We are thrilled to have purchased our dream home in Costa Rica! We hope your family will enjoy our piece of paradise and love Costa Rica as much as we do!
Donna's place is absolutely amazing! The perfect location in Jaco. It's at the north end of the beach and is kinda removed from the craziness, which I loved. The facilities are amazing and the people are so friendly. They're definitely there to help you with anything and everything that you might need. The whole experience was wonderful!
Chris, so glad you enjoyed your stay!
We LOVED our stay in Donna's condo at The Palms on Jaco Beach. The condo is very spacious and looks just like it is pictured. The patio has a postcard perfect view. A pair of Macaws flew by regularly and perched in the tree right off the balcony to feast on seeds - that was so fun for us to watch.
Donna and the staff at Lost Beach were very helpful with answering all of our questions before we arrived. We were first time visitors to Costa Rica and had a lot of logistic and packing questions. We were well prepared for our vacation with all of their help.
The security team and concierge on the property were friendly and helpful as were other tenants. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. We ate & had drinks at Clarita's which is only a short stroll down the beach. Crocs resort next door was a fun diversion - but honestly we loved The Palms and Jaco Beach more.
Donna's condo has all the comforts of home and it was so nice that there were beach towels, boogie boards, and beach chairs to use. We bought groceries at the MaxiPali and cooked in the well stocked kitchen.
The town of Jaco has cute shops and some really fun restaurants. We ate at the Taco Bar twice and loved it. Ice cream was fun and affordable at Pops on the main strip. We felt safe at all times, but we did heed the advice of the locals and kept an eye on our car and bags.
Jaco Beach is an easy drive to Playa Blanca (a must see), Manuel Antonio, and other amazing day trips. We took the Calypso catamaran tour to Tortuga Island and it was FABULOUS!! The Palms concierge helped us with reservations but they are easy to make online as well. The Calypso van picked us up at the condo and returned us at the end of the full day of fun.
We would definitely return to Jaco Beach and to Donna's condo at The Palms. We were sad to leave and hope that Costa Rica is in our future again.
Donna's place is just perfect. Just as shown in the pictures, steps away from the beach, town is less than 5 minutes by taxi (~2-3$), you can even swim at the crocs' swimming pool right next too the building. I definitely recommend this condo for your stay in Jaco !
Can't say enough, amazing! Thanks Donna!
Our mouths dropped to the floor when we entered this beautiful corner unit, 2nd floor condo. The view off the large, large balcony is of the pool directly beneath and the beach and ocean just beyond. The newly built Crocs casino pool is right next door, fabulous and available for use. Jaco town center is a short $3 cab ride or a very doable walk. Just note, you will have to stop at the Lost Beach vacation rental office to pickup keys before going to The Palms condo. Get directions to the office before, we had a difficult time getting phone service and the streets aren't well labeled. Also, there is apparently a hotel named Las Palmas, so make sure not to translate The Palms to Spanish and tell the cabbie next to The Crocs casino.
beautiful & large condo with a great deck and view. Located just north of the main strip, town is easily accessible by cheap taxi or a short walk- use the beach, its much quicker.
Donna's home is wonderful!! It's right on the beach, clean, bright and comfortable. The furniture is wonderful and she's got everything you could need. The people that work at the apartment complex are awesome as well. They took great care of us! Also huge plus, you can use the incredible pool next door at the resort. LOVELY!!!
Katie, thanks very much for the great review. we aim to provide a great vacation experience for your stay in Jaco. Our onsite property manager should have addressed the AC issues. W follow up to get more info
Everything was as expected. The condo was beautiful and right on the ocean. It was nice to be able to go to Crocs if you wanted to!
If you want to book a tour don't do it through the office. They over charge by a lot!
Thanks Donna for the wonderful condo on the beach in Jaco.
Wonderful location.. Great condo staff... New casino new door that shares pool n great Las Vegas gambling. Security at front n back of gated condo.. Although not needed.. Beach and Pacific Ocean was beautiful.. Great time goofing around on beach wake boards... We even did some surfing lessions.. went on several tours.. Horse riding.. Atv's.. Surfing.. Zip lines at two locations and waterfall rappelling combo zip lines.. In town only active after 6.. Learned that last night.. Great souviner shopping with authentic Costa Rican art..
The condo was even better than expected. The pictures do not do it justice as it is much, much bigger than the pictures make it seem! The location was great, just outside of the 'downtown' area - but a quick walk/ drive to restaurants and stores.
I would highly recommend Donna and her wonderful condo for anyone visiting Jaco.
