About Stephanie Craig

Have you ever had Moose Tracks Ice Cream? Our owners - Wally and June Blume - are the developers of this flavor and many others which can be purchased in several grocery stores from coast to coast in the US. They have been coming to Costa Rica since 2005 and purchased this condo at Bahia Encantada in 2007. They love the beauty of Costa Rica and the gentleness of the people here. "You can plan to be as busy or as low key as you’d like, which is the beauty of vacationing here. It is a thrill to wake up every morning and see the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Jaco Bay. It is like a symphony for your eyes". They own several companies and their lives tend to be pretty busy in the US, so they love their time away here in Jaco. Stephanie and John met Wally and June in 2009 when the Craig's moved to Costa Rica full time. We had very similar life and business philosophies, so it was an easy decision to begin working together in 2012. We love what we do - representing the country we love, taking care of our fantastic guests and being property managers!

Stephanie Craig purchased this Condo in 2007

Why Stephanie Craig chose Barrio Los Villalobos

This complex is direct ocean front! It has three large adult and one children's pool. Clarita's Bar and Grill is located steps away on the beach and are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - one of our guests favorite spots! Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!

What makes this Condo unique

From the balcony, one guest counted 44 varieties of birds! It isn’t unusual to sit on the balcony and see Macaws in pairs or groups fly by. They are so colorful and absolutely beautiful as they do “a fly by” in front of the balcony. Guests have seen dolphins and whales in season. One can see the entire view of Jaco Beach and the sunsets are incredible! The breezes are beautiful and relaxing. My favorite treasure is during Green Season. Guests can steal away to the private, covered roof top balcony and watch their own light show over the ocean. It is magnificent! Finally being the penthouse, we are on the top floor. We never have any noise above us. Since we own both penthouses on this floor, (the only two) we have room for parties of up to 12 guests AND our guests have the entire floor!

                                                                  Tracy B.

                                                                  This was our first trip to Costa Rica and our first time using VRBO. We highly recommend both - AND the property! (We stayed in G5.) We really loved being able to walk into town OR take a $3 cab if it was late or we were tired. We found the property (both the condo and pool areas) impeccably maintained. If we had any questions, Stephanie and John were just a quick call away. And, man, did they go above and beyond!

                                                                  As far as restaurants go, we had all great meals. We loved Clarita's (multiple times), Graffiti, PuddleFish Brewery, Los Amigos, TacoBar, and the one restaurant in JacoWalk across from Grafitti whose name escapes me right now.

                                                                  We participated in four excursions during our week. Each was really good in its own way. Our favorite was the Tortuga Island tour. Super relaxing, nice day. Just don't freak out when Philomena (the resident tame "wild" boar) greets you and wants her tummy rubbed. We also LOVED canopy zip lining in Los Suenos. The Carara bird tour and Mangrove Money tour were fun and educational, just not our top events. Be sure to also ask Geo - or whoever your driver from the airport is - to stop at the Crocodile Bridge in Tarcoles. I counted 26. It's pretty amazing.

                                                                  As a side note for those considering visiting Jaco with kids and/or a large age range of people - we had five people ranging from ages 18 to 78. EVERY ONE of us had an AMAZING time! We all talked about the fact that this trip met or exceeded all of our expectations and that we all had different expectations. My 18-year-old told me this is one of two trips she has ever taken (we like to travel) where she was not ready to leave. High praise from a teenager!

                                                                  Daryl W.Edmonton

                                                                  Enjoyed 4 nights at this location, during our first visit to Jaco. Very spacious and in an excellent location. Balconies on 2 levels face the ocean with great views all day. The property is near a great beach restraunt and close enough to bars and other attractions in Jaco to enjoy the walk and not be kept up all night by the noise.

                                                                  Stephanie, the property manager was very friendly and helpful.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Awesome condo and beach

                                                                  Christopher R.

                                                                  John and Stephanie were very accommodating and helpful during our stay. We were provided ample amenities. The grounds were secure and the beach was well maintained. Never felt unsafe in Jaco and people were very friendly. Pristine ocean views from our balconies. If you are considering a trip to the Jaco area I recommend checking this property out.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  John and Stephanie were very hospitable and helpful when it came to things to do and places to eat. The condo was beautiful and comfortable for five of us staying. The view was absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I highly recommend staying here if you visit Costa Rica.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
