Why The Owner chose Barrio Ricos y Famosos

After visiting Jaco Costa Rica during my holiday in Costa Rica, I found Jaco to be the perfect place for me. I always dreamed of living in a warm and tropical place. Close to the capital San Jose, Jaco is easy to get to and from the airport. There are two national parks close by, Manuel Antonio is just a 45 minutes drive and park Carara just 20 minutes from Jaco. The river Tarcoles has the most and the largest crocodiles gathering in Central america. My daughter and her family have been vacationing in this town for 19 years.I hope you will enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The beach is a short 10 minutes walk from the house.We enjoy our morning walks on the beach.

An other walk we love to take is up the mountain, if we go early enough we often see the white face monkeys and the beautiful Morpho butterfly.

The marina is just 10 minutes driving from Jaco in Herradura, there are several super market that offers all the products needed to prepare any gourmet meals.

Every morning we take our coffee in the garden among the tropical plants, it is so peaceful and relaxing.

Outstanding accommodations in Jaco

  • 5 of 5

We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything better. Three adult couples stayed for 6 nights and there was plenty of room. A short 10 minute walk to town means we didn’t have to use the car. Located in a quiet neighbourhood giving us lots of opportunity for relaxation. Both Rebeca and Danielle were fantastic to communicate with. Wish we could have stayed time!

Stunning backyard - what a paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Had the most beautiful time for the last month in Costa Rica. Most peaceful vacation we have ever been on. Totally private and secluded backyard with a pagoda with tables, chairs, loungers, a barbeque and my husband's favourite - a hammock. The pool was clear and clean thanks to the "pool boy" and the the grounds were immaculate thanks to the gardener and the house was perfect thanks to the wonderful cleaner and property manger who came in each week or more often if anything was needed. Walked over 5 miles each day on the beach and ate out at ALL of the fabulous restaurants within walking distance. Zip lined, rode ATVs, had a spa day and just relaxed and ate at home days as well. Peaceful and quiet but with lots to do nearby if we wanted. Beautiful Toucan came to the backyard at about 5 o'clock to eat berries off the tress. So much more - thank you for a perfect vacation.l

Beautiful & Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults, staying in Jaco for a little over a week, and we had a fantastic time at this property. Danielle was extremely helpful ahead of our arrival with questions (we had many...), and arranging payment, etc. Rebeca was very welcoming when we arrived and walked us through the property giving us all the info, and again answering last-minute questions. It is a lovely home, and looks exactly like the pictures here, just beautiful. We felt like the home was a haven for us after our activities and time spent in town and nearby, all 3 bedrooms were quite comfortable. The backyard is just gorgeous, and the pool was lovely. Thank you for a great stay!

Wow, this place was perfect. The garden and pool area are awesome. We are a family of six and the villa was a perfect size. There's four different eating areas, three alfresco and formal. The villa is close to everything including restaurants, grocery stores, beach, etc. There's a great fruit vendor on the left side of the road towards downtown with extremely good prices and produce. We squeezed fresh oranges at the villa every morning (yes, the villa has a juicer). You don't need to rent a car. We used Hugo Transport in Jaco to shuttle us to and from the airport and we did a few excursions which included transportation. It was a total hassle free holiday not having to drive. Danielle, the owner was great to deal with. Rebecca, the property manager met us at the villa when we arrived and was also very helpful. The villa is also very safe. I usually never go back to the same place (too many places yet discovered) but I would return to CR and stay this villa again. Totally perfect holiday!

Wow! amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment that we arrived at the house to the moment that we left it was an amazing experience! The house pretty much has everything you need or can imagine that you might need. Rebecca the housekeeper was very informative and very helpful to work with. I really can't think of one thing to complain about it was an amazing experience, not to mention that the house is beautiful. Thank you so much!!
