About owner/property manager

We originally came to Costa Rica over a dozen years ago for a vacation. We loved it so much that we ended up building our dream home here and moving to Costa Rica! It's truly a paradise.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2006

Why owner/property manager chose Jaco

We chose to build our vacation dream home in Jaco because Jaco Beach is the most convenient beach in Costa Rica. You can walk the beautiful curved beach of Jaco and at the South end of the beach begins the rainforest where you can continue to hike and experience tropical wildlife and beautiful views of the coastline. Also a short walk from our vacation rental is the quaint town of Jaco with many charming cafes and shops. The weather , the swimming, the ocean and rainforest are always beautiful and welcoming as are the local Costa Rican people.

What makes this house unique

Our property, Sonidos Del Mar is unique in that the property is a completely private tropical paradise while being located only steps from the beach and a short walk to downtown Jaco. Directly on the property you'll have your own private tiled swimming pool with waterfall and tropical gardens and wildlife that weave in between a running stream.

Perfect Villa For Our Jaco Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sonidos Del Mar for a week and we all left content and relaxed! This villa is located on a residential side street and is securely gated. It's clean, tastefully decorated and spacious enough for our family of 5. The hosts also thoughtfully left us a huge bowl of fruit and a binder of local recommendations. We enjoyed having breakfast on the cute patio and the pool was perfect for cooling off during humid afternoons. The beach is also steps away and the town is a short drive. We didn't meet the owners but they communicated with us promptly before and during our stay. Jan (property manager) was our point of contact and we did meet her - such a friendly lady! We did have some issues with the Internet but hey, this is Costa Rica so as long as you are not doing urgent work, we made do with a slower connection. Thanks again for hosting us! We definitely recommend this villa for your Jaco vacation. :)

DREAM family vacation in Jaco,Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Flew into San Jose from Florida. Rented car and drove approx 2 hours. Arrived at the house and met Jan so lovely and helpful!!House is a real dream all you can wish for. Make sure you try the Tortuga surf camp and local restaurants. Enjoyed scenic and easy hike to Miro’s mountain easy enough for a 4 year old. Jan arranged for a local horseback’s ride Nice and honest local people everywhere. Make sure you have plenty of local money if you don’t want to be changing dollars (although credit cards accepted in general). Manuel Antonio National Park is a most and the sunsets at the beach. Wish we had more time since plenty of things to do. Highly recommended trip !

Owner's Response: So glad to hear your feedback and to know that you enjoyed your vacation at our property and to know that you enjoyed the town and always wonderful to hear appreciation for our property manager Jan. In fact this was Jan's response when I asked her how it was to host you as guests. "They were wonderful, enthusiastic and friendly guests. Their two daughters were outgoing and charming. You could tell there was a lot of love and fun in their family" Thank you for your visit and we hope one day to host you again. Sending best wishes to your beautiful family. - lauri- property owner/Sonidos del Mar

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, great pool. So secluded, feels like you're in the jungle. It is steps to the beach. Hard to find - but Jan came to our rescue. Shops and restaurants 5 mins drive, big grocery store. The beach is amazing, virtually deserted during the week.

Lovely place, perfect location

Very nice place. Only a few steps to the beach. We lucked out and had the whole place to ourselves. Very close to all of the action.

Nous avons passes nos vacances dans cette superbe maison avec piscine. Le jardin est un vrai paradis. Les deux maisons sont séparées par la piscine. tout est bien équipée pour cuisiner. La maison est située a deux pas de l'ocean. Nos amis nous ont rejoints et ils avaient l'autre maison. Nous avons passes d'incroyables moments dans cet endroit paradisiaque. Jan la personne qui s'occupe de la maison est très agréable. Elle nous a aider pour organiser nos activités. Je voyage beaucoup pour mon boulot et je peus vous dire que cet endroit est vraiment magnifique pour passer des vacances agréables en famille ou entre amis car c'est très spacieux et privée aussi. Je reviendrai dans la maison de Lauri et Howard pour sure.

We spent a wonderful time in Lauri's house in Jaco. What a true paradise. My husband and my son and I truly loved this beautiful house. What a perfect location for people that love to be near the ocean. There are 2 houses separate by the pool. You can come with friends ... lots of room and so private too. Downtown Jaco is minute away by car. Jan the lady that is taking care the rental was so helpful for anything we needed. I travel a lot for my work and i am telling you this house is where you want to spend your next vacation because it was the true paradise for us. I will go there for sure again.

Terrific Find

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sonidos Del Mar! The south end of the beach is less crowded and one block away was perfect. We could hear the waves but the privacy of the house is ideal. The property and house are amazingly beautiful with everything you need. The architectural touches of curved walls, inset handmade tiles and glass, exotic wood, original paintings and the waterfall in the pool were much appreciated.

Laurie, the owner was very helpful making our arrangements and giving us suggestions of things to do in the area. Mario (the driver) was accommodating as well and always on time. Jan (the property manager) was fantastic setting up our tours, answering questions, and providing information. Our favorite tour was white water rafting on the Sevegre River. It was a blast complete with white water, swimming, waterfalls, breakfast, snacks and lunch. Sunset at Villa Calentes was spectacular and definitely worth the drive up the hill. Zip lining was a fun adventure and we all tried one platform upside down! My husband went fly-fishing (Jan arranged it with a local fly-fisherman) close to the border of Nicaragua and caught machaca. We hiked Miro Mountain but go very early because it gets so hot. Nice views and artwork along the way along with fascinating graffiti at the abandoned restaurant.

We did fine without renting a car. We planned down days staying at the pool and the beach, boogie boarding and swimming when there was no need for a car. We could walk to town for dinner and take a cab back for a few dollars.

We used the kitchen and barbeque often and enjoyed sitting outside on the porch for meals under the fans. There were few bugs and docile iguanas and lizards in the tropical gardens surrounding the house.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Jaco, Costa Rica.
