Great Costa Rica Experience
Great Costa Rica Experience
This was our first trip to Costa Rica, we were apprehensive about renting a condo instead of staying at a hotel. We made the right decision, the condo was just right. Condo was clean and orderly upon arrival. The condo complex is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. Frank the owner was very helpful and informative. He even arranged for transport service for us from the airport. Thanks to Dave for bringing us back safely to the airport.

Great house inside of a gated communityGuest comment entered by owner
Great house inside of a gated community
Great house inside of a gated community..very at home feeling. The a/c gets as cold as you would like it. Location was great being right off the main drag with all the stores and shops very close by. Jaco beach surf break was literally minutes down the street. Owner was fast and very easy to work with. Would stay here again

Condo Jaco a Real No GO!
Condo Jaco a Real No GO!
Beware of this place and its owner! The location is "Condo Tropical". However, you won't see the name on the owner's website....for good reason! It is directly adjacent to a new in town park on main street where functions are held OFTEN and include loud music at all hours. At the end of January there is a motorcycle gathering. The place is filled with bikers running up and down the streets, even INSIDE the condo! Bugs crawl through cracks in the door and windows. The furniture is tortuos to sit on. There is no washer in the place. You have to do your laundry in town at considerable cost! We had no oven for four days and no consistantly warm water. The internet connection drops continuously. The router has to be reset. We were given two towels when we checked in. Three days later we got four more. There is so little kitchen counter space,you can't prepare food. Pots, pans utensils are old and barely useable. The place is really aweful! Then the landlord withheld a portion of our security deposit saying a towel and drinking glass were missing. This was untrue, of course. It was just another way for the owner to extract more money from us.

Owner response: Review was submitted by an agitated renter that got upset when we were unable to accomodate his request to stay an additional (15th night), and wanted reimbursement for laundry expenses, even though our VRBO ad does not list laundry facilities. Our guests receive a welcome phone call upon arrival to confirm if the condo is in good condition, which includes cleanliness, presentation, inventory stock and working condition of appliances, this renter was no exception. Thruout his two week stay, we maintained contact with the renter, which included informing of the local establishments, places to go, excursion planning, important phone numbers, who to contact and any questions he may have. His complaint came on day 13 of 14, and only after he was informed that he would be unable to stay an additional (15th night). (He reserved and paid for 14 nights) due to a prior reservation checking in that afternoon. We offered to find him a suitable accomodation within the complex at a discount, he would only accept if we paid for it. Our furniture is either new or have been purchased within the last 2 years. All our appliances have been purchased new, our master bed, living room flat screen and surround sound are only 2 months old.! We provide our guests with spal-style towels imported from the states. Our bedsheets are 800 thread count, with queen size pillows. Our dining table is a hand made natural rustic from the local furniture maker. Our closets are either custom hand made and/or bought new from Monge Imports. We have high speed wireless internet, including a land line with free local calls. The central park he is referring to is the municipal park, which is the centerpiece of Jaco, is where locals come to spend time with their friends and families. From time to time, there are local civic activities held at the park and for the most part do not create disturbances. Unfortunately, there was a biker gathering on one of the weekends during his stay, which understandably can be loud. Some local residents and business are working with local officials on mitigating this type of gatherings in the future. In my four years in business, we have strived to provide a memorable, positive, vacation experience to all our clients. Unfortunately, this was an isolated incident with an individual that is using the VRBO review form in retaliation. We will be glad to answer any questions or concerns that you may have in regards to this review. Sincerely, Owner VRBO Ad #160418
This condo was great!!! Close to everything.. Felt very safe at night with 24/7 guards on duty. One block away from beach. Close to surrounding towns. Lots and lots of shopping, wife and kids loved it. Condo was just as it was presented in ad. Clean and very nice. Will rent again.. Pura Vida-Thanks again Frank.
