Vacation Rental Description

La Flor (The Flower) is an upscale small beachfront community on the quiet north side of Jaco beach. It is directly on the beach, when the guard lets you out the gate, your feet are right on the sand! This is the nicest part of the beach and a private beach just to the north as well. Only a 3 minute drive to downtown restaurants and shops yet far away from the traffic. It is gated and has 24 hour security. Bicycles are a popular method of transportation and available for rent. Taxis are also popular a cheap form of transportation around (average 2-4 dollars per ride in town, everything is very close as well)

La Flor Paradise is the 7th house from the beautiful beachfront pool and club with waterfalls. It is lavishly decorated with original Costa Rican designs and features a free form dining table. All bedrooms are upstairs and have extremely large balconies.

There is a new Casino which is only a few steps away and IS NOW OPEN! It is called Crocs Casino and sits at a towering 17 stories. They have awesome restaurants, pools, slots and casino and crocodiles too!

About Megan Marshall

I am a Canadian woman who fell in love with the beautiful country in January 2010 years ago and decided to come back in June 2012 to buy a villa property to run and live my life in Costa Rica. I can also help help arrange your transfer from the airport, and tours as well that cannot be missed while visiting ;) I absolutely love everything there is about this country and love to share the experience with others. Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful places on earth ;)

Megan Marshall purchased this house in 2012

Why Megan Marshall chose Barrio Los Faroles

Ocean front pool, tranquilo, gated community with a huge pool and jacuzzi. Steps away from the ocean and great surfing spot!!

What makes this house unique

Community Right on the beach, secure gated community on the quiet North end of Jaco. 2 min walk down the beach to Claritas Beach Bar - great restaurant for beers and appetizers! It is also only a 7 min walk into the heart of Jaco where all the action is! I also offer bike rentals as they are extremely popular and safe here in Jaco to get around :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a great time we had in Jaco. Meg is the best kind of host to work with. She was responsive prior to and during our trip. From dinner suggestions to activities and even a little cell phone for local use, Meg made an effort to make us feel at home. The villa itself is exactly as described. It's VERY spacious with A/C in each room and plenty of bathrooms for a large group. The location is on an end of the beach near a brand new casino (great for 24 hour food) but still a 15 min walk or $2 USD cab ride away. It's gated so you feel an extra bit of security. There's a small bodega (corner store) nearby for items like bottled water, soap, shampoo, etc. It's very convenient. Be sure to take advantage of the various tours. I've never seen so much wildlife outside of a zoo in such a short period of time.

So so

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at the condo for 10 days in January 2017. Location was excellent but the condo itself is showing its age. Taps leaked, furnishing far from "upscale". The front door had to be pushed quite hard to enter. As for security, well, not exactly secure! There is a cement wall behind the condo but easy access on both sides of the building and there is an empty lot behind the cement wall which was maybe 8 feet tall. My husband's cell phone was stolen from the premise and I attempted to contact Megan. She contacted us back the next day and all she could offer was to contact security and advise them..... Not impressed over all. We've been to CR several times and actually stayed in town and enjoyed it much more. I would not recommend this particular property.

Owner's Response: Hi Thomas and Family, I am sorry to hear you had so many complaints about the Villa. This is the first time we have heard about leaking taps, and we have gone ahead and checked them all out now. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. However, I believe the comment about the condo showing it's age is unfounded. There is constant repair work being done as is the case with the climate in Costa Rica and the villa is in immaculate condition. We also did the best we could with the missing cell phone, made a report with the police and the manager. However we also heard that it may have been lost in Manuel Antonio on your tour that day, and you were unsure if you did leave it outside the villa at night. It is your responsibility to watch your personal items on tours and while traveling, although we apologize that this did happen to you. Your group has been quite a difficult one to deal with and we are only sorry you couldn't choose to enjoy your vacation here more. I think a different location will serve you better next time. Pura Vida

Terrific Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Meg was great, very organized and helpful, she even took us to our surfing lessons, which was certainly not expected, her house and property were just what we expected, actually a bit nicer; has made us think that renting a house is the only way to go. Would come back to Jaco anytime and would not hesitate to rent from Meg again. She even has great neighbors who were also more than friendly and helpful. Great experience !!!

Family vacation we will never forget!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we landed in San Jose to the moment we got home, Meg made our vacation effortless! The house was great and the location was PERFECT! Close to the beach, the town, and the casino. Taxis into town (although you could walk it easily) ran us about $3-4 USD per trip and were easy to call/hail. All of the drivers Meg arranged for our transfers and excursions were professional, prompt, and accommodating! The surfing school Meg arranged for us as well was AMAZING! The owner, Mike, worked with our family (all first time surfers) one -on-one to make sure we were comfortable and most of all safe. The kids looked like pros by the end of the lesson and we got some great pics from a photographer working the beach ($30 well spent!!) We also took a wonderful ATV trip through the mountains to a small waterfall. The company Meg booked for us again, were wonderful and kept us all safe and made sure we had a great time. Things not to miss - Clarita's beach bar (we practically lived there) it's right outside the pool gate; Manuel Antonio Park (go early or late... crowded) the monkeys are hysterical and the beach is gorgeous; Lemon Zest restaurant (fine dining quality with a relaxed atmosphere) the chef is amazing. Things we learned that might help you... DON'T skimboard in Jaco!! On day 3 of our visit, our son had a skimboarding accident on the beach (hit a rock) and broke his collarbone in 2 places. The local clinic was efficient, but only gave him meds and wrapped him up. Meg was again AMAZING and arranged transport for my son and me to CINA in San Jose (a private hospital). They were wonderful! Great doctors and imaging equipment...very efficient! I hope you don't ever have to go, but just in case. USE Meg's recommendations for tours/lessons/etc. We went back to surf (without the boy) after our lessons and couldn't get together with our surfing instructor and instead used someone that our taxi driver recommended (note...everyone has friends they will steer you to). The equipment was poorly maintained and once we got out into the surf, we realized it was far too rough for us as first timers... something I am SURE Mike would have told us prior to renting equipment. So, if you are new to CR or returning, I would highly recommend renting from Meg. She made what could have been a disastrous vacation smooth and fun for our family of 6. The home was beautiful, well appointed, and in a perfect location!!! We can't wait to come back!

Great property in a great location just a few blocks from downtown Jaco. For me it was the perfect location. Serenity at its finest just a few steps from the villa on a beach that was not crowded. When we wanted to hang with the crowd all we needed to do was walk a few blocks or take a quick cab ride to the hottest locations in Jaco to have dinner and drinks. Meg the owner was great and helped us with anything and everything we needed from helping us book adventures to helping us book transportation. While enjoying our stay, one of the air conditions in a room went out and Meg had someone come over to fix it the same day. She was always was quick to respond to any questions or needs we had. Overall it was a great stay in a great property in the perfect location. Thanks for everything Meg!
