LOCATION is the key to a great vacation. Quiet, safe, 24/7 security with parking. It is a short walk to the shopping district which ends a block away from JBV and walking distance to the main road. And what a beach location! Theres is a grass island in front of the beach gate, complete with benches, picnic areas, and lots of palm trees. Consistently beautiful sunsets.
This is a ground floor, luxury 1 bedroom unit next to the jacuzzi, pool and gazebo. Only one unit back from the beach.
This is one of the few TRUE beach front condo locations in Jaco. Many rentals advertise 'steps from the beach', yet may be a block or two from the beach (BIG difference), or take an elevator which ruins the ambiance of being in a tropical paradise. You'll enjoy watching the surfers from the gazebo just outside your unit, by the pool as you sip coffee and check email on your laptop. The gazebo has wi-fi and electrical plugs . It is never crowded inside the JBV compound as most of the units are owned by foreigners who visit only a few times a year. The beach is rarely crowded except for holidays which welcomes national tourists in droves...people watching at its best.
This is a ground floor, luxury 1 bedroom unit next to the jacuzzi, and only one unit back from the beach. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. All bedding, towels (except beach towels), cookware, dishes, kitchen appliances, icemaker, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, etc. The two thermostat controlled A/C units cool the unit within a couple of minutes. The ground floor location and excellent insulation make the A/C necessary only a couple of hours a day. The ceiling fans at night are adequate and allow you to listen to the surf as you doze in the quiet and safe splendor of JBV.
The unit includes a telephone (calls anywhere in CR or you can receive calls from anywhere), internet wi-fi for your wireless devices. The TV is a big flat screen with about 100 cable channels. Nearly 20 are in English. There is a safe for your passports and cash in the closet where the washer and dryer are located. You set the combination upon your arrival and leave it open for the next guest to set their combo.The area is safe, but I suggest you carry a copy of your passport and keep the original in the safe (Original required if you are driving) along with your return airline tickets. . I email a printable Welcome Letter which gives you internet acess codes, phone numbers for cabs, and many general tips. Most of my guests love my recommendations for tours, secret hideaways, and local restaurants that are still a bargain.
Servicios y zonas comunes
Guests have access to the entire unit, including phone and wifi, laundry, etc. The pool and jacuzzi are right in front of the unit, and there is also a poolside gazebo with wifi and electrical plugs, also with a small bbq area. This is open to all and we only ask that in case someone is waiting to use it you share or allow them to enter an hour after.

Otros aspectos destacables
Costa Rica is the one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Costa Rica offers a superior quality vacation and you'll enjoy a new rain forest adventure or beach experience around every corner. The Costa Ricans are very warm and friendly and welcome tourists from around the world. Jaco Beach is the most popular beach destination in Costa Rica. It is now only an hour and twenty minutes from the airport, thanks to the new highway which cuts the drive time from San Jose in half. I suggest rental cars, but for my guests who choose not to drive, I have an arrangement with a dependable, safe driver who knows my condo and my property manager. He will take you to your front door in Jaco Beach Village (JBV). It costs only $4 to take the public bus, but it takes the old road which can take over 3 hours. Once in town, you can take a taxi to nearly anywhere in Jaco for $2.
You need to bring your toiletries, sunscreen, beach towels, umbrella, food, and drinks. There is a big supermarket, Mas X Menos, just a few blocks away. A small version of Walmart, Maxi Pali, is a $2 cab ride away on the opposite end of Jaco. You can easily walk to 100 or more restaurants within a mile of JBV. Most eateries are excellent and some have tourist prices and aren't necessarily better. It is fun to walk down Pastor Diaz Blvd., looking at menus for the open air patio restaurants.
- Turn off lights and AC whenever not in the unit.
