About Martin Reiner

Marty and Janice moved to Costa Rica 8 years ago to start a software company. We live in Santa Ana, a western suburb of San Jose. We love Costa Rica -- the people, the natural beauty throughout the country and plan to stay here for many more years.

Jan and Marty try to use the condo as much as possible to relax and enjoy the sun and surf. The rest of the time, we are happy to share our beautiful condo with others to help us afford the cost of ownership.

If you need any help at all about anything Costa Rican, we will be glad to help you. As active visitors to Jaco, we know a lot of good restaurants, tour guides, and other 'local knowledge' and we'll gladly offer advice that will save you time, money and hopefully help you avoid disappointment.

Martin Reiner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Martin Reiner chose Puntarenas

The Diamante Del Sol condos, part of the Daystar managed properties is truly the jewel of Jaco Beach. Centrally located in Jaco and just 75 minutes from San Jose Airport, it is by far the closest luxury beach front property to San Jose.

What makes this condo unique

Walk to everything: steps from beach and pool, 1 block to groceries and drugs, 5 min walk to shopping, restaurants, bars!

Relax on our private main balcony, listening to the waves and watching the surfers. Shady and peaceful every morning, gorgeous sunset view every night!

Beautiful property, stunning views= Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Oh where to start....The pictures don't do the property justice. You walk in turn towards the living room and all you see is the ocean. First thing we did was walk out onto the balcony and sit for 10-15 minutes. My wife and our four girls spent 8 nights and 7 days in Jaco and had a great time.

The plus side of renting this location is Julie- She is on top of everything you need or want while in Jaco. Julie can arrange transportation to and from the airport, set-up adventures like zip lining, touring the national parks, surfing lessons and recommend great restaurants. She even showed up while we were surfing just to make sure we were having a great time.

It can be nerve racking planning an out of country vacation for your family and having a contact like Julie really helps. In fact we're already discussing a return trip during peak season so we can see Jaco when it's in full swing.

12 Nights in Jaco

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just returned from 12 nights at this condo. We had a very nice time in Jaco thanks to Julie, the local contact who can assist with literally anything you need. She arranged our private shuttle to and from the airport, day excursions to Manuel Antonio, Canyoning, ATV tours, ziplining, etc...and also gave tons of helpful hints regarding where to eat, shop, etc...

The condo itself is nice, but showing signs of age. The washer dryer was barely working and is being replaced soon, as are the air conditioning units inside the unit. We never had any issues with the ac, the condo was always nice and cold for us. There is quite a bit of painting that needs to be done inside the unit, it's just cosmetic and could easily be completed in a day but it leaves a bad first impression when there are old water stains on the ceiling, or scratches along the walls in the hallways! It's my understanding that the unit is being touched up this week, so that will alleviate this issue for future guests.

The pool was very nice, as was the beach. On our last day, there was a loud group that was obnoxious and smoking/drinking at the pool but for the most part it was very relaxing and quiet. Be aware, surf is pretty rough at Jaco Beach with swells averaging 5-6 feet so unless you are a good swimmer it's best to watch the surfers from the shore. On the nights that weren't overcast the sunsets were amazing!

We felt very safe in Jaco, the people were extremely friendly and we would highly recommend visiting.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Bill. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your time in Jaco. Sadly, someone has to be the last guest before annual maintenance. Being on the ocean and being actively rented definitely adds wear and tear. You were 100% correct, the day after you left, we spent the next week bringing the condo to 'better than new' condition with the installation of new, ultra quiet, air handlers though out, 100% walls and ceilings painted , including touching up dings, installation of a brand new washer/dryer and also adding new artwork, new bedding and pillows, new lamps and more. I can assure the next guest 'first impressive' will take away their breath! Again, thanks for the review and hope to see you back again soon! Marty and Janice

The place for Pure Vida!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you need to enjoy Jaco Beach and the surrounding area. Well appointed and well stocked with kitchen items (although we went through the silverware quickly). The view from the balcony is great - we watched surfers in the morning and the evening, saw the colors of the sunset, watched local dogs play in the surf, and toasted the good life.

It's an easy walk to town, the grocery, and all the super local food. Julie, the concierge, was a great help in setting up adventures and giving advice. Try the canyoning adventure - hard, but not to be missed!

The new air-conditioning equipment to be installed in July will be a great help. The units ran all the time and we needed the fans on high.

A memorable week for the four of us - tuvimos un gran tiempo!

Owner's Response: Hi Thomas! Thanks for the terrific review! We're glad you enjoyed yourselves and got the most out of Julie, the condo and Jaco! Yes, new AC in two weeks will be awesome (along with lots of other new stuff including paint, artwork, lamps and more!). Hope to see you back again soon! Marty and Janice

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

Location is the big draw for this condo complex. Everything you need or want to do is in walking distance, or easy pick up for excursions. The grounds were wonderfully maintained and it had a beautiful and relaxing pool. Sitting on the 3rd floor balcony in the condo was the perfect location to spot wildlife, people watch, feel the ocean breeze, watch the storms come in, and the sun set. A big plus is the service from our concierge, Julie. She was very attentive, friendly, and informative.

Marty's Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived we were greeted by Julie, she answered all our questions and set us up with any tours we were interested in... she was very patience with us! We were wowed again when we walked into the condo, it was much more spacious than we could of imagined and the view was spectacular! The pool and the location made it the ideal vacation spot!
