The Perfect Place To Stay in Jaco Beach
The Perfect Place To Stay in Jaco Beach
WOW! This was my family's first trip to Costa Rica and it was fabulous. The accomodations were perfect-the pictures on the VRBO website were EXACTLY how this unit was portrayed. Stephanie and John were awesome "hosts"! We arrived in San Jose at 5 AM from Denver and we were met by Geo-the driver Stephanie and John arranged to have pick us up=from there it was an easy 1.5 hour drive to Jaco Beach where Stephanie and John met us about 7 AM. They showed us everything we needed to know about the condo and even dropped us off at the grocery store. The property was very clean and Stephanie and John were always available to answer any questions we had throughout our stay! We would highly recommend using Daniel with Costa Rica Holidays to book at tours-we zip lined, did the waterfall hike (amazing!), white water rafting, surfed and took a day trip to Manuel Antonio Park plus we even found time to relax by the pool or beach. Our favorite part of the condo was the rooftop balcony! We LOVED eating at the Taco bar and went there every afternoon for smoothies-another favorite restaurant was Jaco taco. We walked everywhere so no rental car is really needed-taxis are cheap into town if you need them-$2 each way! The tour company picked us up every day as well! If you are looking for an awesome vacation spot and place to stay-this is it!!!

Excellent Beach Front Condo/Resort
Excellent Beach Front Condo/Resort
A group of 5 adults shared the 3 bedroom condo for 6 nights while on vacation in Costa Rica. John and Stephanie were amazing hosts and took excellent care of us. One piece of luggage in our group did not arrive and they helped us track it down and get it returned. They were very prompt in helping us with any other issues. The unit was a great spot for 5 adults with 3 king size beds. We all enjoyed breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean and afternoon happy hour watching the sunset from the upper balcony. The couch/tv area was great for relaxing in the morning waiting for everyone else to wake up. The pool area at the resort is beautiful. The Jaco beach is a dark sand beach with some rocks, and I enjoyed my time at the pool as much as my time at the beach. I would return to this property if I planned another vacation in Costa Rica!!

Great Family Vacation Rental
Great Family Vacation Rental
Our family of 4 rented this condo for 8 nights during March 2013. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we could not have been more satisfied with both the accommodations and the property managers Stephanie & John. First the Property The condo amenities and cleanliness was exactly as we had anticipated. Condo was well appointed and well maintained; overall excellent The condo grounds are secure and well maintained. Any questions to either the security or grounds crew were immediately addressed. Pool and common areas were constantly being attended to by the grounds staff; overall excellent The condo location, near the north end of Jaco beach worked well for us. Far enough away from the busier parts of the beach, yet close enough to town that taxis were seldom necessary. Great views and sunsets from the upper deck level; overall excellent Property Managers Stephanie & John provide excellent communication and quickly answered all of our questions ahead of our rental; not only about the condo rental but general travel questions about visiting Costa Rica. All responses were timely and professional; overall excellent Stephanie & John met us at the condo check-in (even though our flight was delayed 2 hours) and provided a warm welcome to 4 very tried travelers. Stephanie & John took the time to explain the condo features including a tour of the grounds. Stephanie & John even gave us a lift to the grocery store to pick-up some quick necessities....both are genuinely nice people and made us feel at ease about our choice to rent at Bahia Encantada. Stephanie & John arranged for transportation to and from San Jose airport with their recommended drive Geo. Geo was very dependable, pleasant and trust worthy and excellent ambassador for Costa Rican hospitality. Our first visit to Costa Rica and Bahia Encantada will hopefully not be our last. I would not have any hesitation recommending this rental condo to any of my friends or family. Thanks again Stephanie & John for the great stay and hospitality.

Best in Eight Years!
Our group has stayed in various condos in the Jaco Beach – Los Suenos area for the last eight years. We have found these two condos (H-5 and G-5) to be the best we have rented. The units were very well kept and supplied with all the necessary amenities. The pools, grounds and beaches were exceptionally clean and inviting. The property managers were great and looked after every detail to ensure that we had a good time during our stay. From this location we were able to enjoy everything there is to do in the area, from some of the best fishing in the world, to surfing, canopy tours, ATV riding in the mountains - and of course, the wonderful people of Costa Rica. I encourage anyone wanting to stay at the Bahia Encantada Resort Condos in CR to book either of these units. They will definitely have a wonderful time. 5 Stars!

I need to start by saying WOW!!! What a great trip. Kingdom Condo's did a great job booking my stay and helped me with every part of my trip. Stephanie and John the property managers were nothing less than professional. Being residents of Costa Rico, Stephanie and John know all the in and outs of the country and were a wealth of knowledge. They told us about local customs and great sight seeing areas of this beautiful country. If you are thinking about taking a trip to Costa Rico, call Kingdom Condo's, they will do whatever is necessary to ensure you have great trip. Thanks,

Stay away. First you have to go through a dual check-in, with Stephanie at the condo and with Daystar at a location in town. At Daystar they attach a wristband on everyone and say we have to keep them on for a few of days until the staff remember us. You look silly wearing the wristband and it's lousy security. From day one we had very low water pressure for weak drizzle showers and no baths. Having a rare bathtub in this condo is touted in the listing. We didn't want to sit on the toilet for 30 minutes waiting for the large bathtub to fill. When Stephanie came to check out the problem, that was her solution. Other victims of the low water pressure were the master toilet and the toilet between the two secondary bedrooms. We had to use the hall bathroom toilet. The toilet paper was also a low grade brown toilet paper. The Internet only worked without fail the first day we arrived. After that it was always sporadic. The wireless signal was very weak. The refrigerator had water pooling on the shelves. This wasn't a big problem. Stephanie thought she fixed the problem by adjusting the thermostat level from 1 to 2. That didn't fix anything. Our second day someone from Daystar called and asked if there were any problems. For the water pressure and Internet they said they were aware to the problems and were working on them. They didn't show up to do anything about the pooling water in the refrigerator and the other problems only got worse. There is no DVD player for the main, large TV. The DVD player is in a secondary bedroom in a very small TV. This is not what you expect when you see DVD player as a feature. We stayed four nights. The last two nights,Thurs. and Fri., there was very loud music with heavy bass until past Midnight coming from a bar next to the complex. While the complex is not responsible for the music, it is still something you have to live with. A sleep cellphone app couldn't drown out the music. I avoid doing any reviews unless a stay is exceptional. I also avoid giving any negative reviews. In this case, I'm making an exception. Stephanie's greedy response to me cutting my stay short by one day motivated me. I made this reservation the same day I arrived. As last minute as it comes. The 5 days rent Stephanie collected from me was like found money and yet she refused to credit me for the last day I didn't stay. Most people would be happy collecting for 4 days that they otherwise would not have, especially when it's a sub-standard condo.

Manager response: I am the owner of this condo & I will shield my property managers from further abuse. As owner of several businesses & condos over 50 yrs. in the business world, I have dealt with thousands of customers. We are meticulous in the way we manage & maintain our properties. We've poured thousands of dollars into the two condos we own at Bahia Encantada. This year we have: replaced much of the furniture & all linens; re-painted throughout; upgraded TV’s; upgraded to toll free telephones in both units; purchased many new appliances & added a new washer & dryer to one of the units. We hire only the most demanding people to supervise our cleaning services & have a sense of urgency when it comes to repairs and taking care of customers. We pay attention to details however, we're not perfect. We have to know about problems before we can fix them. I don't want any water in the refrigerator either. Since you left last week, I bought a brand new refrigerator/freezer to replace the one with the little leak. While most renters can figure out that there is a switch to turn the tub water on, our property managers were happy to show you how that worked. You reported in your review that the water pressure was a low. It has since been checked, adjustments have been made and the water pressure is fine. As you mentioned, there was a problem with the Wi-Fi in the condo. Again, we have a difficult time fixing problems we don’t know about. After you left, we put boosters in both of our condos. In my book that is a sense of urgency. I lived in that condo for three years and never had a problem going to sleep due to loud music. We've also never had another complaint about it keeping anyone else awake. Customer service is extremely important to our team. We will make a refund as requested. Regards, Wallace Blume

Great time in Jaco
Great time in Jaco
We arrived on a friday afternoon and were picked up at the airport by Geo. Geo took us to Jaco beach and on the way stopped to get us some food and drinks and told us all of the places we should hang out and eat at in Jaco. When we arrived in Jaco we were greeted by John and Stephanie immediately. They gave us the tour of our condo, which was great, and then they reccomended several places for us to visit while we were in Jaco. The first night we were there we walked right out of the back of the condo complex to the beach and 20 yards down the beach to Clarita's for dinner. The next morning one of my friends and I walked in to town to get breakfast for everyone and then caught a $1.50 cab ride back with all of our groceries. FYI, with six people we never paid more than $2 for a cab ride anywhere in Jaco. While we were in Jaco, we booked two tours with Daystar to ride four wheelers and do a zip line tour. Both tours were excellent. I would reccomend the Bahia encantada to anyone. Our trip was great and the condo was clean, nice, and new. I hope you get to enjoy a great time like we had. Pura Vida.

Manager response: Jon, Thank you for the great review! I'm so glad that you enjoyed all your entire stay. Thank you also for mentioning one of our 'unsung heroes', Geo. As you know, he is our private driver and as an English speaking Costa Rican, so he is very knowledgeable about some things that we don't even know about as Property Managers. We are really happy to have him as part of our team! AND we were happy to welcome you and your guests as part of our family! Thank you again for the review and we are glad you had a good time. We hope you will come back and see us again soon!!! Blessings, Stephanie

So good, we extended our reservation!
Stephanie and John are amazing. The property is just beautiful! It was so nice, we ended up extending our time in Jaco twice!!! When we arrived, Stephanie and John aka Mom and Pop had a whole Jaco users guide for us. They were always available when we had silly questions like which Sushi place was the best..."I love Sushi" is the best sushi in Jaco btw!!!! I will be back!!! 5 of 5

Year Purchased: 2007
About: Have you ever had Moose Tracks Ice Cream? We are the developers of this flavor and many others which can be purchased in many grocery stores from coast to coast in the US. We have been coming to Costa Rica since 2005 and purchased our condo at BE in 2007. We love the beauty of Costa Rica and the gentleness of the people here. You can plan to be as busy or as low key as you’d like, which is the beauty of vacationing here. It is a thrill to wake up every morning and see the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Jaco Bay. It is like a symphony for your eyes. We own several companies and our lives tend to be pretty busy in the US. So, we love our time away here in Jaco. Wally plays golf and we both love to read and spend time with friends and family here. Since this is our seventh year in Jaco, we have friends from different cultures as we enjoy people we have met from all over the world. We love being able to reconnect from year to year and catch up on their lives.
We used to go to Florida every year to escape the snow from the Mid West. The weather in Florida became pretty unpredictable and we spent several winters in Key West with temperatures in the mid 50’s. We have friends who had been coming to Costa Rica and suggested we try it. The first year here made believers out of us and we’ve continued to return. We’ve traveled to many places in the world. We love the fact that we can enjoy this climate while not having to travel so far from home. There are so many activities to enjoy here that there is something for everyone. Last year we had friends who came down who love bird watching. From our balcony, they saw 44 varieties of birds and were thrilled. It isn’t unusual to sit on the balcony and see Macaws in pairs or groups fly by. They are so colorful and absolutely beautiful as they do “a fly by” in front of our balcony.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are many beautiful condos in Jaco - and this is certainly no exception. In all of Jaco, there are not too many penthouses, and of those, not many of them have an additional balcony and views like this! So, we think that the best features of this oceanview penthouse are the views from the covered rooftop balcony! A spiral staircase will give you access from the main balcony to this covered rooftop balcony, where you will enjoy INCREDIBLE views of Jaco Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west AND a majestic mountain range to the south... STUNNING! Another unique feature is the full tub in the master bathroom. Bathtubs are very unusual in Costa Rica and this one is BEAUTIFUL!!! While you are here, you will have the opportunity to have personal, personal, personal service! While you are in our home, it is important to us that you FEEL at home. Welcome!
