Jaco apartment description

Rilana's Villas is one of the best kept secrets in the Heart of Playa Jaco. As a four (4) unit property, Rilana's offers a very private, secluded place to stay right in the heart of the action in Jaco Beach. Located directly across the street from Jaco's Public Park, Rilana's is literally a 1 minute walk from Jaco's famous beaches, the world famous Beatle Bar, Monkey Bar, dozens of restaurants and the center of Jaco's retail corridor. Jaco Beach is a world-known surfing destination (site of the 2008 World Surfing Championships), and the waves are waiting for you steps from your front door. Rilana's is also ideally located for day trips to Manuel Antonio National Park, the Rainforest, Zip Lining, Horseback Riding, Fishing, Waterfalls, Volcanos, ATV Tours, and dozens of other unique Costa Rican attractions.

Set in a Mediterranean-style structure, each unit has its own balcony/porch area overlooking the very private lush courtyard and pool area with meticulously maintained gardens including over 100 different types of flowers, palms, coconut trees, plants and other vegitation. Coupled with the courtyard, the cool, blue-tiled pool and the privacy are hard to beat. Comfortably sleeping four adults, each unit has two queen-sized beds made of Peruvian pine wood and the rest of the furniture is hand made to match. Equipped with a full kitchen including a stove, fridge, microwave oven, and cooking & eating utensils, Rilana's, unlike many other Hotel-type rentals in the Jaco area, provides another dining option and a convenient way to have fresh essentials (cold water, fresh fruit) at your fingertips. Other important amenities include: in-room safes, cable TV, in-room telephone (free local calls,free WI-FI, Air Conditioning, Ceiling Fans (2 in each unit), exceptional and spacious bathroom and we even have hot water (don't laugh, some places in Jaco don't have hot water). On top of all of that, Rilana's provides off-street parking, 24 hour security and daily room cleaning.

Rilana's is ideal for a group of four or more when renting the entire property (all 4 units). You instantly have your own lush compound right in the heart of Jaco's action. No car necessary; everything is located within steps of your front door. If traveling alone or with a smaller group, Rilana's is the best place to receive special attention in the heart of feel like you are at your own home.

If you visit Jaco Beach and are unable to stay at Rilana's, please pass by so you know what you missed.
