Jaco house description

Costa Rica is a place of spectacular beauty and you can enjoy your stay in this cozy oceanfront house. We are located in a small, quaint fishing village called Tarcoles. You can wake up and have that first cup of delicious Costa Rican java while watching the sun rise over the mountains. In the evenings, pour yourself a glass of wine and relax on the roomy front porch as you watch the sun disappear into the ocean. You will frequently see colorful Scarlet Macaws flying from tree to tree as you lounge by the private pool. There is a covered veranda that wraps around the entire house.

You can walk out the back door and pick fresh fruit from the multitude of fruit trees such as mango, banana, plantain, lime, coconut and breadfruit. As well, you can watch the macaws having breakfast in the almond trees at the front of the house. You can take a dip in the sparkling pool, enjoy a siesta, or curl up with a book in our hammock. For entertainment take a drive to Jaco, located 20 minutes from the house, where you can enjoy browsing in the many shops for treasures made by the local artists. There you'll find beautiful hand-made bowls, wall hangings and jewelry made from the native wood. You can also enjoy local cuisine at one of the many restaurants, or have a drink at the Funky Monkey Bar.

A newly built shopping plaza is a 10 minute drive from the house. There you'll find a modern grocery store that carries many of the popular and familiar brands that you can find at home. There is a Subway and a Pizza Hut, as well as a pharmacy, video store and even a Radio Shack.

                      Area: We are only a 1 1/4 hr. drive from the airport in San Jose and, as we are in a central location, it is easy to take many tours and excursions.

                      Scarlet Macaws in your garden! Iguanas, goats, cows too! Horseback riding, atv tours, visit Central Pacific's tallest waterfall, Carara National Park (see 300 species of birds, monkeys, black and green frogs and trees over 500ft tall). If you are feeling active, there are several surf shops that offer 1st timers lessons and you can catch your first wave like I did. There is also fishing, hiking or challenge yourself with Zip Line canopy tours, hiking to the waterfalls, biking, crocodile tours, butterfly farms and plenty of wildlife viewing.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Wife/Husband relocated from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and moved to Tarcoles. We love it here! Would not choose to live elsewhere in CR.

                      Why the Owner Chose Jaco:
                      We really like being in an area typical of Costa Rica and have been actively involved in the Village for the past 17 years.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Getting to truly experience a stay in the 'authentic' Costa Rica! Not the touristy areas, being exposed and immersing yourself in the way of life in a Fishing Village and making lifelong friends!
