  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Great Vacation!

    "My family and I loved Sonidos del Mar. The location was perfect with the large dark sand beach just down the road and a wonderful hike not too far up the road as well. We loved the size, layout and beautiful decor, just perfect for a tropical getaway! It also had good amenities (blow dryers, towels and all you could need in a gourmet kitchen). The owner Lauri was such a pleasure to deal with and Jan (who helps to manage the property) was terrific too. She popped by to greet us and helped to set up our tours, reservations and surf lessons throughout our stay...The dark sand beach is beautiful with incredibly warm water. Depending on the tide, you can have rolling waves and then pretty calm waters. There is a small restaurant right on the beach as you walk from the house which we visited daily for lunch. We tried others but found it to be our FAVORITE! Plenty of great restaurants as well and all at reasonable prices. We would definitely come back and totally recommend as a wonderful beach vacation with lots to do!"

  • The perfect Jaco Stay

    "I must say, i was initially apprehensive of booking this wonderful place. The owners Don and Denise were/are super helpful that, as a New Yorker i was hesitant (I mean we are just are not used to people who are both nice and extremely helpful). After my booking Both Don and Denise constantly reached out to suggest activities, places to visit and anything helpful that they thought we ought to know, they really do go above and beyond to ensure your comfort. Upon arriving, i instantly fell at home, the place is well furnished and stocked (i mean FULLY stocked) with linens and towels, to run out of them would mean you change linen twice a day or something. The 3 bedroom condo is very spacious, THAT you do not see from the pictures. We had a group of 7 with some over night crashers (had some friends who were at the best western down the street), one of the nights we all ended up crashing and we did not feel one bit cluttered. Security, maintenance workers and cleaners were all friendly and helpful (The whole city of Jaco is like that) but, these staffers went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable(they also know what bars to go on any given night which was a plus). We had a BBQ on our last night there, and the security on duty did an amazing job setting up the place for us (cleaning the grill before and after) setting up the propane gas, trash can etc. All in all, i would recommend this place again and plan to visit Jaco (I fell in love, the sunsets are beyond words) and will most definitely be staying at this place. I will say that the Crocs casino which is next door had their grand opening the night we got there and though there is some noise from the music, the levels weren't any bother at all. The Casino General Manager lives in this complex also and he does a good job not disturbing his neighbors tranquility. THANK YOU!!!!!! Don and Denise from my group, truly appreciate it."
