  • Great place, great owner, perfect for anyone

    "Great trip right from the pick up at the airport by the owners recommend driver. The condo was everything described in the add. Easy walk to Jaco town on the street or beach. The grounds are very safe and clean. The beach is just steps away. Great pools and friendly staff. Highly recommend Vlad from Costa Rica Eco Tours. He will get u on any excursion cheap and speaks great English. Also very knowledgeable and a great resource while we were here."

  • Fantastic

    "I am writing this review while enjoying a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee listening to the birds and waves - and sitting on the couch of this fantastic rental! Sherri-Lee (the owner) you were just wonderful to deal with, thank you for making booking our first private condo such an easy and stress free experience. The location is GREAT! We are right on the beach where we have surfed and relaxed every day. Cab rides into town are no more than $3 American and we have also walked many times (15 minutes or so). Its peaceful and quiet, the staff at Paloma Blanca and Daystar has been just wonderful and it feels very safe. The condo itself has a VERY comfortable king sized bed and couch built for lounging. The kitchen has all the utensils we needed including some Tupperware containers which came in very handy for our day trips. I also didn't realise before getting here - but there is a full laundry room which has come in very handy for washing beach towels and some clothes we have gotten dirty on all of our adventure trips. We are here with 4 other couples who have rented other units in the complex also and the walk out to the pool made things really easy! It was just my husband and I staying, but the unit would have comfortably fit two couples. The second bedroom has its own flat screen and double bed, plus a full second washroom in addition to the ensuite. For the price, you cant beat it! If you're in to surfing, Tortuga Surf School sets up right in front of the complex and offers amazing surf lessons and board rentals - and also let us use their beach loungers and umbrellas. Tours and activities we took from here included - Jose's crocodile tours (we actually got to touch a giant one), Tortuga island (absolutely beautiful and super fun, but don't get too excited about the snorkeling), zip lining, and rappelling down 300 feet of waterfalls in the rain forest. All were able to pick us up from our front gates. Also - the food here has been FANTASTIC! We have tried to stick to local Costa Rican places and avoid the americanized ones and we haven't had a meal yet that wasn't great, and well priced. If I'm ever lucky enough to come back to this beautiful place I would rent this unit again in a heartbeat, and strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to explore Jaco and Costa Rica! Thanks again!"

  • Beautiful location, excellent service, great views!!

    "Great place nice decorations inside the unit as well as patio. The pool was another favorite part. And the location can't be beat, half water half jungle. There was also a very cute puppy playing in the courtyard from another tenant that we got to play with while by the pool. The beds and showers were another huge plus, very high end. Also the guards were very nice and helpful made me feel safe 24 hours a day. Thanks again to the ownerd it doesn't get much better than this unit as well as how easy they were to work with"

  • More than perfect paradise!

    "After more than 3 months in this country we were looking for a magical place to spend our very last days in Costa Rica. We found that place in Matapalo and were lucky enough to stay at Ron’s place. The cabina is really nice and was very convenient for our family (with 2 small kids), with a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of beach towels and space…and everything was very clean and comfortable. There’s a gorgeous view on the inner land and mountains from the balcony, and animals such as monkeys, iguanas and many birds come in the surrounding garden, which is full of fruit trees. But what made our stay so unique was also Ron’s warm welcome into his paradise; he is a wonderful host, knows everything about the region, and we had a lot of fun when he initiated us to ocean kayaking or took us for a refreshing bath in a secret waterfall. All in one he was very helpful and cool with us, and the kids loved him. Thank you Ron for the perfect stay, we hope one day we will be able to come back to you place."
