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. They know first hand what a thrill it is to wake up every morning and see the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Jaco Bay and comment, "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 Craig are the property managers for this beautiful property. We met Wally and June in 2009 when the we 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 is 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 often see 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 occupy 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!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Very spacious & clean condo. We were a group of 4 adults & we were extremely pleased with all of the space & functionality of the apartment. The view at sunset is amazing from the top balcony. Highly recommend!
We felt extremely safe on the property & the other condo guests were also very friendly.
They were very quick to answer any questions or issues we had. If we return to Jaco- we would definitely stay here again.
So glad you enjoyed your vacation, the condo and everything about it. We sure loved having you all and hope to see you again one day!
The Perfect View
This condo is beautiful & so safe. The three bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The view & sunsets are what make this condo worth every penny!! Our whole family was sure to catch the sunset every night. Stephanie & John gave excellent recommendations for tour companies. We did zip lining, Manuel Antonio (however due to newly enforced capacity limits on the park we were not able to get in) and the Mangrove Monkey boat. The monkey boat was our favorite! This was a very easy & fun trip for our family thanks to all of the help from John & Stephanie as well as the very friendly local people, tour guides & drivers! There are plenty of delicious, reasonably priced restaurants in town and we rarely had any wait to get in. And the pool is the perfect place to cool off and relax; also safe with a guard on duty every time we went by! This condo is super safe & great for families!!
So happy to hear that you enjoyed every part of your vacation! We love to hear that our guests leave loving Costa Rica as much as we do. You were all a delight and we hope that you will come see us again soon!
Great week on beautiful Jaco Beach!
Well kept, beautiful 3 bed, 2-1/2 bath oceanfront condo on fifth floor; fantastic views!! Loved the pool area, esp lap pool, but expected staff to man the swim-up bar. No one there that week. Enjoyed next door's Clarita's on the Beach for breakfast. Steph & John Craig were the best hosts! Fav restaurants were Los Amigos and Lemon Zest. Tortuga Island excursion was relaxing. Fishing spectacular! Grouper, red snapper, shrimp, and 2 sailfish!!
So glad you enjoyed your vacation! I'm really sorry if I didn't explain about the swim up bar. It is never 'manned' per se. Guests are welcome to bring their food/beverages down to the bar and enjoy it though, which is why we provide a cooler and plastic in the penthouse. Thank you so much for the extra fish - we REALLY enjoyed it!!! Come see us again!
Meticulously Clean. Excellent pool area. Loved the location. John and Steph were awesome. God bless
We are so glad that everything was up to your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay! We enjoyed having you all and sure hope that you will come be with us again! Many blessings!
Perfect vacation spot!
This is our second time staying in this unit. It was perfect the first and just as perfect the second. Unit is clean, well maintained, totally safe and located in the quiet part of town. The hosts, John and Stephanie, are on top of everything and do all they can to make sure all your questions and needs are met. They love what they do and it shows!
I don't think that much makes us happier than knowing that our guests are happy! So thankful that you had another great vacation! You all have become family and we are looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Best vacation ever. Complex and condo are beautiful. This is my first time using vrbo and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Stephanie and John were wonderful. Stephanie was very helpful answering my many questions by email or messaging. Loved being able to walk right to the beach and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every evening. The condo is exactly as the pictures show. Costa Rica was everything we were hoping. Thanks for all your help Stephanie.
So happy to hear that this vacation was all you hoped for Julie! That is our highest goal! You were all great guests. Please come and see us again any time!
