*** Voted 'Best Ocean Front Beach House on Jaco Beach***

Watch the stunning sunsets in Jaco, Costa Rica from Casa Rio Mar... Casa Rio Mar is a beach house holiday rental that sits on the South end of Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. It has 5 luxurious bedrooms, front and rear balconies, swimming pool with lights, outdoor shower, built in barbecue and a tropical garden. Each room is furnished using local woods, fabrics and designs. The holiday villa is equipped with all amenities you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. 24-hour security on premises for peace of mind.

Most of the surfing lessons for all of Jaco Beach are given right in front of Casa Rio Mar. This is because of the very gradual beach having little undertow, smaller waves make it ideal for beginners or intermediate surfers.

Beautiful Los Suenos Marina is where over 200 fishing boats are located. Boats can be booked for day fishing trips ranging from 18 feet to 55 feet in length. You can catch all varieties of deep sea fish depending on the season. Sailfish, marlin, rooster fish, yellow fin tuna, mahi mahi and Spanish mackerel are but a few of the many types of fish that can be caught. Costa Rica coastline is one of the best sports fishing locations in the world.

Shopping and Restaurants: The town of Jaco has been a surf town for tourists since the 1960’s. The main street in Jaco is filled with restaurants, gift shops, clothing shops and souvenir stands, plus all the businesses the locals frequent. Start at the south end of town and walk your way north along main street and you will find any type of shop you want.

There are well over 100 restaurants in the greater Jaco area serving a wide variety of cuisines including local favorites. Three favorites are Claritas for American dishes, Ohana’s for fresh sushi, and Los Amigos for just about anything.

For all ages

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property with our whole family as a treat for our 35th anniversary. Matt was so accommodating with ages ranging from 3 months to 60 years. Only one problem was not being able to rent crib reasonably. Had to bring a Pack 'n Play on the plane. The pool and beach were so close that we could take the kids to either without being far from needed items. We sat by the beach with our coffee in the morning while the kids played in the sand or adults went to the ocean. As it got hotter during the day we used the pool or enjoyed a beer in the beautifully groomed yard. Everyone got a kick out of the iguanas that would scoop up our food scraps in the back yard. Going to town was easy with a taxi and just a few $. We had a chef come in and cook for us 2 nights which was wonderful and reasonable with all the leftovers we had the next day. The house was large enough for all of us (8 adults and 4 children). We didn't do any excursions as we have been to Costa Rica twice b4 and we just wanted to relax and enjoy our kids and grandkids, however 4 of the kids went zip-lining and really enjoyed it. We always felt very safe and our security guard/ grounds keeper was 24/7 helpful with whatever we needed. (Transportation, tours, translation, clean-up maintenance, etc.) We only had one suggestion for Matt, ceiling fans. Keep up the good work, this family from Wisconsin will always remember the great time we had at Casa Rio Mar.

Pura Vida!!

  • 5 of 5

By far the best stay I've had in all the countries I've traveled to. We were a group of 7 guys, and from the moment we stepped into the house, Matt who I guess you would call our property manager (wore many hats including FRIEND, concierge, travel guide) was very accommodating. The house was huge, and immaculate when we came in for our 3 day stay. We were surprised to find out that we had 24 hour security, who were two of the nicest guys one could ask for. They were very responsive to all our needs and made sure no one came on the grounds that was not welcome. The sunset/sunrise from the front of the house is indescribable, and being steps away from the ocean is priceless. Overall was a 5+ star experience, and wouldn't look elsewhere to stay for the next trip. Matt suggested we use his chef and bartender for our gentleman's sit down dinner, and I would highly recommend using them as well. The Mojito's and Costa Rican food/drinks that were made, were memorable and really let us enjoy the Costa Rican food in a high end fashion.

Awesome sunsets, staff, and service!

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that we chose this property for our trip to Jaco! The property was right on the beach with awesome sunsets and a short walk to the water, and a great pool if we wanted to just lay back and lounge. The house was spacious and allowed our group of 8 to spread out with enough room to relax, but also had great spaces for us all to come together and hang out. The staff were super friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful with everything we needed. They have all kinds of suggestions from restaurants to tours and activities. This place was clean and comfortable and they thought of everything. We will definitely come back and stay here! Thanks again!

fabulous house and wonderful service!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here with 4 others and we all loved the house and location. The water view and sunsets were spectacular. Matt and Jim were more than accommodating with great tips for tours and restaurants. Don't miss the tours! Tukan Tours was excellent. Andrey was our guide on 2 full day tours and he was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had planned to rent a car but it was not necessary. Easy cheap cabs. We had a full time guard as well.

Sunsets, beach, and more!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 had a wonderful time in Jaco beach. Being right on the beach was an invaluable asset to this nice home, as our kids could go right out the door and surf, boogie board, or swim in the beautiful private pool anytime they wanted - which was every day. The location was perfect. It was an easy 20 minute ( mostly beach) walk to town; right next door to a hotel that had a very nice restaurant with excellent food and a cool tiki/bar which we frequented; and shirt drive to many exciting excursions. We went fishing twice, zip lining, did an aerial tram through the rain forest, white water rafting, and a hike through Manuel Antonio National Forest where we saw numerous sloths, bats, frogs, tropical birds, and arrived on a gorgeous white sand beach. The owner and property manager really worked hard to make things run smoothly- quick and responsive to our needs and any repairs needed- even purchasing a brand new washer/dryer and set of pots and pans when the others were not repairable. One of our favorite things was hitting the chefs. They were very skilled and so friendly and helpful. What a way to pamper yourself and family after a long adventurous day!
