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

Amazing condo and location

  • 5 of 5

From our first dealings with Marty the owner, all went smoothly. The condo is very well appointed with recent upgrades. The location is ideal to walk anywhere in Jaco. The sunsets from the balcony are breathtaking. Julie, the concierge, is super friendly and available to you for your needs. I highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review Isabelle. We don't often have guests for 3 weeks and we're thrilled that you and your family had a great time! If you think November/December was nice, you should come back between Xmas and Easter!!! Return guests receive a 5% discount and we'd love to have you back! Best wishes for a happy and healthy new year! Marty and Janice

Lovely, modern, home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica, and this property did not disappoint. Julie, the property concierge, was more than helpful especially with transportation and recommedations. The condo is very modern and comfy, spacious for our party of 4 adults and 3 kids. View, beach access and pool were spot on, exactly what we were expecting. As with any rental, the condo was not perfect - I would really give it 4.5 stars. There was a musty smell, especially in the closets. Even our clothes that stayed in the closet came home smelling. A little febreze would go far. And basic cleaning supplies were pretty inadequate. There was a poor excuse for a broom, but not dust pan. Lighting throughout was odd, lots of bulbs out, especially in the kitchen where it hurt most. Furniture was worn, but not in a bad way. It was comfy and cozy without fear for our 3 kids. The view is great straight ahead!! But be warned, this condo is a end unit with undeveloped land next door. This area was filled with local "characters" , some soliciting, but mostly harmless people watching.

Our main complaint/suggestion would be to include a couple beach chairs and an umbrella, even if it would an optional, extra cost addition. There were many days we went to the beach with kids or to watch the sunset, and would have thoroughly enjoyed a seat. There are places to rent, but not near the condo.

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone visiting Jaco. And if we stay in Jaco again, we will return. We loved Costa Rica so much, and plan to visit other areas!

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.

I think the condo is in 'better than new' condition following the upgrades from the summer and you are one of the first families to experience it. Julie... what can I say... she's terrific, thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you back again soon! Marty and Janice

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
