  • 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!"

  • Perfect Location, Condo and Owner!

    "First let me say I went into this trip not knowing a lot about Jaco or Costa Rica in general, but I had heard a lot of good things about the area and decided to see what it was about. I enjoy surfing and this was an area I wanted to visit and surf. After searching for many days and reading many reviews I started looking for a hotel to stay at. I must say this was very confusing for me because I have not been to the area and didn't know which ones were nice or bad. I then stumbled on this site and started searching for condos. I then found Butch's condo and the price was very close to some of the hotels. Once again I was going in blind and had no idea other than the photos and reviews people have left about Butch and his condo. I contacted Butch and immediately got a response from him. Now for the fun part Butch went on and on about his condo and how wonderful it is down there. I felt extremely comfortable after speaking with Butch and soon there after booked his condo for a week. The pictures Butch has posted does NOT do it justice!! This condo is extremely spacious with a huge balcony. Although we were only 2 people you could easily had 20 people in this condo for a get together. Everything is updated and worked just like advertised. A wall A/C unit was in every room and blasted out very cold air. One thing that is not pictured is the second bathroom. It is the same as the master which was wonderful. A lot of time was spent on the balcony looking at the ocean or taking at peek at the mountain side. Crocs next door is a dream come true!!! during the week there is maybe 10 people at the HUGE pool with pool service. Yes you will have full access to that and all the restaurants. The private entrance is 90 feet from the condo's elevator. All the staff at the condo were wonderful. You can book every tour you want to do in Jaco right in the office and they will pick you up from there. I highly recommend this unit and with Crocs next door it will be harder and harder to come back and visit cause Butch's condo will be booked. Only negative I can think of would be the new Crocs next door. This place is not cheap. You will spend the extra $$$ to eat or drink in the nicest resort in Jaco. Butch you have a beautiful condo and please feel free to use me as a reference for anything. Once again you are the man and we appreciate you making our vacation go smooth. Chris R."

  • Ideal location, nicely appointed condo

    "This condo was a perfect spring break rental for my husband, son and me. Everything was well maintained in the condo itself, and the grounds. The path providing beach access from the condo was nicely shaded, had a lovely stream with beautiful plants and flowers, frequently visited by bird life, and many lizards. The pool is a bit small, but provided a shaded alternative to the beach in the heat of the day. The condo is near to 2 or 3 surfboard rental and lesson locations on the beach. Wonderful trail to hike in hills very nearby where we saw a toucan close-up. We saw many macaws fly over and hang out nearby on the beach. Many restaurant options in nearby Jaco. So much fresh fruit. It was awesome. Thanks to the Richard for providing helpful suggestions for nearby activities. Could probably get by without a car. Car rental was unexpectedly expensive because Thrifty didn't mention at booking that required insurance doubles rental rate. Suggest you look into that during booking."

  • Our Favorite Family Vacation Spot

    "When we were researching other possible vacation spots for the family, nothing we saw came close to the comfort and views of this apartment where we stayed 2 years ago. So, we decided to stay in Jaco again and in the same fantastic apartment. The apartment is huge, beautiful, clean, had a few upgrades since our last stay, and has a great location. Phil & Evelyn were very kind and helpful as they were in our previous visit. This year we visited Manual Antonio, did the Monkey Mangrove tour, went surfing, enjoyed the fantastic sunset and sunrises, walked the Pura Vida Gardens, dined at fabulous restaurants, shopped, toured a coffee plantation, and spent countless hours just relaxing at the beach, pool, and apartment. We love this place. You won't be disappointed."
