  • The Ultimate location!!!

    "As this was booked through our company we were not sure what to expect. However, as soon as you walk into this condo on main floor you are facing the pool as well as a view of the ocean. Yes, you can literally hear the waves of the ocean and are surrounded by chirping birds and tropical palm trees. You are paces away to play in the ocean and can have many long walks along the beach or you can basque in the sun or enjoy the 3 pools that this complex has to offer. It also offers a group BBQ that is available for booking across from the condo. The complex is well kept, very secure and quite. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and a cab ride away from downtown Jaco for under $3.00 as well as centrally located to do the many tours that are available. The tours are definitely worth checking into and Sherri-Lee had provided a list of these as well as great contact for us to obtain our tickets. Our lasting memories will be enjoying our meals on the outdoor balcony facing the ocean as well as the evenings on the beach enjoying the sunsets that were painted every night with a different brush and visited by different planets and constellations. Truly Wonderful! The ultimate spot to be able to rent a well furnished 2 bedroom condo (laundry facilities included) from the gracious and wonderful owner Sherri-Lee. Thank you for sharing your property! We highly recommend renting this unit personally and corporately! The Ultimate location!!! Totally Awesome!!!"

  • Nature Lovers Dream

    "If there is "heaven on earth" this is the place! The property surrounding this home is what made this such a memorable vacation for us. I can tell you that the pictures of the interior of the home itself are completely accurate. We had my sister-in-law with us for a portion of our trip, and the layout of the two poolside bedrooms on opposite sides of the home, each with their own bathrooms were great for our individual privacy. There are ceiling fans in every room, and I can honestly say that having just the fans (no A/C) was enough to keep us comfortable. Don't let the lack of A/C keep you from considering this home. Now for the backyard...Danielle has done a masterful job in creating a true "Garden of Eden" experience. My sister-in-law and I would lay in the pool and marvel at the variety of flowering plants, and it seemed like every day we'd discover something we hadn't noticed before! The current pictures of the outside of the property could use updating as it's so much more lush than what is pictured. The is a fantastic flowering white bougainvillea over the covered patio leading to the pool, there is a bright yellow hibiscus-type flowering vine that is running up and along the the pool-side barbeque area. I could go on, and on. The lush garden (I keep using the word "lush", but it's so true) invites countless varieties of birds - imagine waking each morning to them singing to each other! We even saw a lizard eating the red hibiscus at the far back of the property, and there was an iguana that liked to hang by the pool and sun himself. We did not experience any mosquitoes like one of the reviews commented on. As a matter of fact, we slept with only the mosquito netting over the bedroom door at night, and left the kitchen and living room doors open all day, neither of which have screens. We never so much as saw one bug in the house. A note on Jaco itself - the three of us found that the walk to the beach took us about 25 mins one-way. There is a little tienda about a block from the entrance to the subdivision (barrio), and a great fruit market about 2 blocks beyond that. Further down the road is a bakery that has fantastic bread that we bought fresh daily. The Caribbean restaurant at the entrance to the barrio is a winner as well! Rebecca is a very personable and welcoming manager, and was always available when we had questions for her. From the first day to the last, we enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back next year!"

  • 10 out of 5!

    "Our stay at Sonidos del Mar was absolutely incredible! As a family of 4 with two daughters in their 20s, we felt at home in this tropical paradise compound. The size of this house was perfect for our family and my daughters really enjoyed having their own room and bathroom. The kitchen of this house was very large and great for cooking nice fresh breakfast and lunches. Our favorite part was the fact that the beach was 40 meters from the house. We took surfing lessons with Debbie and learned how to surf on day 1. Renting surf boards is about $10!!! The location of this house is also perfect as it is close enough to walk to Jacó...but far enough that you don't hear all of the city noise. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of the waves. Staying in the house definitely shaped our vacation and made it very comfortable and fun!"

  • Clean, safe, beautiful location, but not quite as advertised

    "We were really excited to stay at this Playa Hermosa Bungalow. While the place was clean and the location was beautiful there were some key things that were not as described. First of all, no drinking water was provided. This was a real bummer, as we had just flown overnight and driven from SJO and wanted to relax on the front porch with a nice cup of water. We ended up taking one of the empty 5 gallon jugs to Mas X Menos and getting it filled. I let the owner know and she made no apologies or effort to reimburse us. There is no telescope, nor long distance phone calls or a helpful property manager who will assist you with tours. For some reason, the maid did not fully make the beds, so we were without a blanket for one of them. Aaron did provide us with one of his, but it was not clean, but we made do. We did not feel comfortable asking him for anything after that point-- there was a certain vibe to him that made you feel as if you shouldn't bother him. I did let the owner know about the telescope and phone calls and she basically played ignorant. Had we known that some of the descriptive items were not available, nor accurate, we probably would not have gone with this house, as these were selling points for us. Some of other property managers were much more interactive and friendly. I would suggest renting a bungalow from them if you want to be able to feel comfortable asking questions about what to do in the area and where to go. Besides all of the "surprises" we really did enjoy a peaceful vacation. We spent a lot of the time on the front porch. There is a nice ocean view. On the back porch we spent time looking at all the birds and animal visitors. We did get to see the monkeys. We lounged in the pool and the hammocks and felt quite relaxed. Victor, the fisherman, came by our place and had delicious catches. A walk along the beach to some of the restaurants was a fun time. The Backyard has a nice happy hour going on. The Bluegrass Cafe had delicious cinnamon rolls. And, make sure you take a trip to the waterfalls: Tres Pascinas."
