About Owner / Property Manager

We live in Casper, Wyoming, and are active in our community. We often donate the unit to charitable fundraisers. We fell in love with Costa Rica the first time we went. People who started out as staff members at the condo have become great friends, and we are grateful to have found this special corner of the world.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this condo in 2010

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Puntarenas

We love getting away from the snowy cold of the Rocky Mountains . . . if just for a while. Simply put, we strive to have the nicest property in Jaco within walking distance to the beach. We thoroughly enjoy Jaco Beach, building sandcastles with the kids or having a nice dinner at some of the wonderful local restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is co-owned by two families who are best friends, and who have filled it with Costa Rican art, quality kitchen equipment, and fluffy towels. They appreciate suggestions from guests, and they try to vacation to the unit as much as possible. It is their home away from home, and it shows in the way it is maintained.

Great value, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the Monaco Apartments. We had very spacious and comfortable 3-bedroom condo overlooking one of the pools. The condo was very well equipped with high end appliances, had two spacious bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. The pool was a great place to relax, never too busy and nicely shaded. Despite the apartment being fully occupied, it was surprisingly quiet with plenty of parking available.

The condo is a short walk from the beach, with many fine restaurants close by. The KFC, Pizza Hut and Sex Shop just beside us on the main strip gives an initial unfavourable impression, but this is not really an issue. A grocery store is just at the entrance. Ingrid in the office was really helpful at arranging surf lessons, tours and so on. We had a really enjoyable stay, the condo is well priced and I would recommend it.

Owner's Response: We really appreciated this review. We were a little startled by the "Sex Shop" issue, as we go to our condo on a pretty regular basis and don't recall a sexual themed business near the KFC. Our unit and the condo complex itself try very hard to maintain a respectful, family-friendly environment. Of course, there are certain activities that are more widely accepted in Costa Rica as compared to the United States, but that is the beauty of travel. We are glad that the initial impressions of this guest were eventually overcome by the positives!

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Monaco Condominiums, property number 558693 between Christmas and New Years and had one of the best family vacations we have ever had. The condo is ideal for a family trip. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with large showers, and a great kitchen for cooking meals. It's also furnished beautifully. There is a grocery store and restaurants just across the street. We were able to walk to the beach which is 1 block away and the staff was amazing for helping us book day trips and cabs for getting around town. We spent a lot of time at the 2 pools on the property and met lots of friendly people. We were also able to access the free wifi easily, so it's perfect if you need to work or want to stream a movie. Jaco Beach is a lovely place to spend New Years Eve if you get the chance. Everyone gathers on the beach to light fireworks and send up lanterns. Truly breathtaking!

Great Condo in Jaco

  • 5 of 5

"We stayed in Jaco beach, Costa Rica, at Monaco Condominium Property number 558693, and it was great. This condo has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a kitchen that opens to a large dining and family area. Every detail is well-designed in excellent taste. There are two pools, and you are only one block from the beautiful beach. There is a grocery store right across the street from the Monaco, and numerous restaurants of every variety up and down the main street. There are flat screen TVs, free WiFi, and local calls are free. The Monaco has a great staff, and it is very secure, with a guard at the gate 24 hours. The maid service is excellent, and the ladies at the front desk are fluent in English and extremely helpful, going out of their way to book side trips or recommend the best places in town to eat and shop. We have stayed in other places in Costa Rica, but none compares to our experience at this condo in Jaco."

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

As a family we spent 10 weeks exploring Jaco and the surrounding area from June - mid-Aug. I have three sons, ages 7, 10, and turned 13 while we were in country. Our adventures there (zip-lining, hiking through national parks, horseback riding, white water rafting, snorkeling, surfing, atv-ing, attending language school and enjoying the beach) created memories that will last a lifetime. The people of Costa Rica are kind, welcoming and accommodating.

The staff at the Monoco truly made our stay wonderful, going way above and beyond to assist us with tour arrangements, safety and security advice, plus service recommendations including travel to and from the airport, groceries, restaurants, surf instructors, and more. Everyone working at The Monaco treated us like family.

The condo itself was perfect. There were plenty of kitchen supplies to facilitate cooking-in rather than eating out, but within easy walking distance were more than a dozen excellent places to eat. The giant showers and in-unit laundry are awesome. The furnishings and decor were lovely, and the maintenance and cleaning services are top notch. We felt spoiled indeed. Having two pools is a brilliant plan for adults who prefer to avoid splashing playful children can seek refuge in the adult-only pool. My boys swam their hearts out nearly every day in the kid-friendly pool. We met other guests there, and the pool area was great for socializing.

One last note: a pair of basilisks living near the pool came out daily to afford us the treat of observing them. We also enjoyed the iguanas and the amazing birds that visited frequently. I highly recommend this property for a family vacation!

Luxury Condo in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Monaco features beautiful, well-kept grounds and an excellent office staff in a gated complex. The condos are clean and fully equipped. The pools were fantastic for our family and the beach was simply a couple blocks away. The grocery store is even across the street to allow our daily enjoyment of fresh fruit and Costa Rican coffee prepared in our own kitchen. The condos are spacious and the town offered restaurants, surf lessons, and tropical vistas.

Great location, beautiful condo, small outdoor!

  • 4 of 5

Nicole's house is a great destination on Jaco Beach. The condo is super confortable, clean and it have an excellent distribution into the house.

The bedrooms was very nice, bug bathrooms, great to go with children.

The outdoors were clean; 2 medium size pools with a few chairs and minimum space for the children to play.

The bech is 2 blocks from the condo and there's a supermarket crossing the street.

We'll come back, my girls enjoy a lot, but I prefer more space in the outdoors.
