About the property

The Paradise Condominiums are very well kept and are in a great location. The grounds are colorful and well groomed. The entrance to the complex is on the East side of 'Calle Pastor Diaz', the main street of Jaco Beach.

You cross the street and you are 1 block to the water. It is a short walk to the center of town or a $2 cab fare. You can walk to restaurants, shops and banks. The entrance gate is pleasantly manned 24/7. There is a large common area that includes two pools and a Jacuzzi. They are clean and well maintained. The layout is courtyard style and the one way street travels in a big square. Parking is on one side of the street only. The condo is 2 bedroom/ 1 bath. It is newly remodeled and completely furnished. Pull out couch, full refrigerator, two burner hot top, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans and linens. Tiled floors, hardwood kitchen and bathroom cabinets, Cable TV and Internet hookup. This is a very safe and cozy place.

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is awesome! The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and helped and coordinated with excursions, places to eat and shop! This place is more incredible than depicted. The value is great and I would recommend this for anyone! If you go, you have to try the calamari at the Poseidon Restaurant!!!

from NYC to Jaco

  • 4 of 5

I rented BOB's house this past spring for a month .It was exactly as printed here. I would like to add whats not said. Bob was ALWAYS available even for the minor things like : where to shop for food ; where do other Yankees hang out ; how do I get to Arnal hotsprings and thanks Bob for the bicycle ! The beach is only a short walk away , down the street actually and I ate locally every night. Walked to the CLUBS every night ! Used the PooL every day ! Jaco TV is in both English & Spanish with subTitles in re-verse ! Had breakfast daily with ALL my neighbors on my front patio . You should rent this property ... and yes there is a SAFE and "walking" nightly Security Guards. I will rent again ... thanks BOB

Smaller Than Expected But Nice Value

  • 4 of 5

This is a fairly quiet, pleasant little condo (stress "little"--barely 900 square feet) located in a gated community near the beach. With few exceptions, it did fit my requirements in terms of what I was looking for as a solo traveler.

The condo is sparse--a small sitting area (can't call it a living room) with cable TV, a wood dining room table situated near the full-size refrigerator, and a small kitchen with all utensils and small appliances (coffee maker, toaster oven, etc.) expected. The bathroom (also small) has only a shower. The shower/washbasin plumbing didn't work properly on arrival day but I called the property management company and they sent a guy named "Elvis" (no kidding) who fixed it right away. The bedroom had a non-descript double bed with a nice wardbrobe/dresser plus a smaller (cable) TV perched high above the dresser. Didn't use it.

The condo boasts a large pool and a jacuzzi that was nice. Lots of rules--including no eating or drinking at the tables surrounding the pool.

Guests are issued a condo pass which must be surrendered when leaving and picked up again upon return to the main entrance/exit. After awhile, the gatekeepers knew you and it became automatic ritual of going an coming.

As promised, the condo is only one block from Playa Jaco and is right on the main street which runs through Jaco. That brought this problem: Just outside the entrance to the condo complex, there are two homeless guys with a pack of 4-5 dogs lying on the sidewalk--day and night. Had to step around them (and the dogs) the whole time I was in Jaco. Surprisingly, however, they didn't panhandle visitors.

Overall, I liked this condo and would rebook. But, now that I've been to Jaco, I'd also look for other rental options--probably closer to Playa Hermosa--about 3 miles south of Jaco.

The grounds are beautiful, well kept. Our unit had electricity problem, exposed wires in the shower, very dangerous. It could use more kitchen equipment, pots and bowls, cleaning tools, close lines. No daily service. Make sure, hot water in shower is working. I would recommend to get picture of the actually rented unit, ours didn't have outside launch furniture. Location is excellent, close to stores and markets.
