"From check-in to check-out, this property was a breeze. This small community of 30 or so beach cottages was perfect for our group of 4. The home sits about 100 yards or so off the beach allowing your to hear the waves from the porch.
Upon our arrival, the house was clean and seemed ready for us. The home had everything we needed in terms of amenities, which gave us a great feel of a home away from home.
I do recommend having a car rental in this area to help your group get around. There are taxi services in the area but it is much easier to get a ride back to the house from town then vise versa. The home is situated about a 1/4 mile off the main highway on the dirt access road in Playa Hermosa. This is a surfers paradise as there are tons of consistent waves up and down the beach in Playa Hermosa. The one downfall of this beach is that it is Black Sand which makes it very hot to lay out on but the community pool offers a great solution to this.
Jaco is the largest town in the area and is about 10 minutes north via car. Once you spend a day or two in Jaco, you'll realize you made the right choice by staying in Playa Hermosa. We stayed here during mid-August and the weather was perfect!
The house as awesome, the hospitality was amazing, the communication was convenient. Thank you for the memories!"

"I rented here for 9 days and loved it!! The condo was cozy and comfortable. You have gated security 24/7. Although it has AC, the ceiling fans kept the condo cool day and night. Access to the pool was very convenient. Everything in Jaco is truly within walking distance."

"We were at El Encanto in february for two weeks.We loved our stay there,the condo was clean and the kitchen very well equipped with a lot of pots and pans.An important point for us because we loved cooking .Really enjoy the swimming pool ,small but very nice.The place is at walking distance of everything,large groceries stores,restaurants,shops and bars but far enough to be quiet.We really enjoy Jaco and the proximity of the park Carrara and Manuel Antonio.Taxi from the condo to Jaco is less than $2.00 and there is a very good service by city bus to go to the Herradura beach in 20 minutes for 50 cents Curt and Dinah are very friendly and a good source of information.We appréciate the picking and dropping at the airport. We felt safe and we were like at home in Jaco and at El Encanto.Thanks at both of you.We will tell friends and be back for sure.

"This condo was everything we expected and more. We were 4 adult couples and felt like we had plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen and family room were well equipped. The main balcony was the nicest place I have ever seen for hanging out and relaxing while being able to see and hear the surf. I was able to take pictures of my husband surfing without leaving the balcony. The pool table and sound system were a hit. The location is extremely convenient for going out in the town, but it was quiet at night. Phil was very helpful in recommendations and the staff at Lost Beach was very accommodating. We would certainly recommend this to our friends and will likely be back.."
