About the property

Welcome to Jaco, the closest beach town a little over one hour away from the San Jose Airport (Juan Santa Maria International Airport) and truly a piece of paradise!!

Your vacation home is located in the heart of Jaco, walking distance to everything and is on the 3rd floor of the building. It is an upscale boutique property consisting of 25 condos and just one block from the beach.

It has a spacious and open floor plan with over 1500 square feet of living space and is the ultimate in relaxation and luxury.

Equipped with a gourmet kitchen, stainless steel appliances, gorgeous white granite countertops and all the usual comforts of home such as a coffee maker, toaster, blender, pots and pans, plates, glasses, etc.

It boasts a huge master bedroom with a king size bed, flat screen TV and full bath including a large size tub and rain shower. There are two other well appointed bedrooms, both with queen beds and flat screen TVs.

Second bath has a chocolate coloured tiled walk in shower.

The unit is equipped with cable, telephone and high speed internet access.

There are 4 balconies -- one in the living room and three others off each of the bedrooms.

There is a washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.... although laundry may just have to wait until you return home from your trip to paradise! :)

The complex has two pools (one with a jacuzzi), outdoor kitchen/BBQ area, stunning and beautifully maintained grounds, 24 hour gated security, parking and 2 elevators on site.

The complex itself is perfectly situated across the street from a good sized grocery store if you want to pick up any grocery items for the condo.

The friendly on site property managers are happy to assist you with getting settled in, helping you with booking tours, making reservations at restaurants or anything else you would like to enjoy during the course of your stay.

We have nothing but rave reviews about the office staff and how helpful they are... the ladies are true gems! (Ingrid, Vinyella and Edele), along with maintenance staff, grounds keepers and security personnel. All are truly wonderful, kind and there to make your stay an enjoyable one.

Maid service is provided every second day (by the sweetest ladies ever)!

Again, we can't say enough about the people that run the property on a day to day basis. You'll see it for yourself when you stay at The Monaco.

Jaco has something to offer everyone of all ages including over 75 restaurants, nightclubs, shops, doctors, dentists, banks, supermarkets, yoga, hair and nail salons, massage treatments, zip lines tours, surfing lessons, fishing excursions, the list is endless!

There are numerous activities to enjoy in the area and you can be rest assured that you won't be disappointed.

For your convenience we can arrange pick up at the airport from a trusted and reputable English speaking cab driver/tour guide operator whom we have personally known for 10 + years. He is a true gem and any friend of ours is treated as a friend of his. :)

We sincerely hope that you thoroughly enjoy your stay in our condo and most importantly your overall time in Costa Rica. We want this to be your 'home away from home'.

We encourage you to fill your days with whatever makes you happy whether it be lounging by the pool, spending the day at the beach, going on excursions to see monkeys, sloths, crocs or simply getting to know the local costa ricans and watching a breathtaking sunset at the end of the day!

We are certain that you, too, will absolutely fall in love with Costa Rica.

... and have many happy returns!

Pura Vida

About Robert & Tamara Mark

We currently reside in Calgary, Alberta and our motto is simple ......'we work to vacation'.

After travelling to numerous hotspots throughout the years, we found that Costa Rica was always calling us back.

We can honestly say that we've never been so drawn to a place that felt like home to us and with equal importance, made us feel safe.

Costa Rican people are some of the nicest people you could ever meet and to put it simply, they do things out of the kindness of their heart and not for any other reason or secret agenda. It truly amazes me time and time again how kind the people are.

In January of 2014 we visited Costa Rica after a 4 year hiatus (hectic work schedules, etc). This time around we told our cab driver friend Phillips that we were coming for one month to make up for not visiting for the past several years.

Needless to say, we fell in love with Costa Rica all over again and ended up purchasing our very own condo in the same complex that we were renting from.

It is with sincere thanks to Jesse and Vanessa (owners of condo #8) that we made our dream a reality. They, like us, love Costa Rica and speak of how nice the people are, how safe they feel and how it feels like home to them.

Robert & Tamara Mark purchased this condo in 2014

Why Robert & Tamara Mark chose Jaco

We looked at numerous properties all along the Pacific Coast and kept coming back to the town of Jaco. In terms of location, finishings within the unit and overall appearance, our complex is perfect. Nightlife, restaurants, grocery stores, beach, etc are literally steps outside the gate! The fact that it has 24 hour gated security and that the staff looking after the premises are all so kind and genuine, it was an easy decision on our part.

What makes this condo unique

Aside from how beautiful it is (from the grounds to the individual condo units), the location is perfect. You are only steps away from the main street of Jaco which is filled with restaurants and shops and yet you feel the tranquility and complete relaxation when you're lounging by the pool. It's your vacation and you can choose whether or not you want it to be an adventurous one or if you want to simply get away and have some peace and quiet.

Jaco 2017

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular holiday to Costa Rica including 9 nights staying at this great condo. The condo is as advertised: Modern, clean and comfortable . The grounds are kept beautifully and the staff at the Monaco are super lovely. The 2 pools are great and the beach is a short walk - great surf. Tamara and RJ were responsive both during the booking process and for ideas on things to do, see and fabulous reasturants to enjoy. Overall we were very happy with Jaco and wouldn't to come back or recommend this beautiful vacation condo.

Beautiful Condo, Great Location

This was our first visit to Costa Rica. Tamara and Robert were so helpful. From the booking to answering questions we had along the way. The condo is so comfortable. The pools were most welcoming after our morning walks. The patio was a perfect place for a morning coffee and an evening quiet space. The staff were top notch. Adele greeted me every day she worked and made sure we were ok and happy. Jaco has stolen my heart. We plan to return for two weeks next year and rent the same beautiful condo.

Thank you Tamara and Robert!

Nice property but no place for unruly kids and inconsiderate parents.

  • 3 of 5

Lots of near infant kids screaming all day morning into the night. Parents of these children irresponsible and oblivious to what their children were doing. One child nearly slipped thru the upper Patio railing on a third floor condo. Been to Monaco for 4 years. First bad experience. Many other condo guests shared the same difficult experience. Mentioned this experience to management when,checking out this morning

Owner's Response: Hi Paul, I'm sorry to hear that you had a bad experience this time around! We have rented our condo to you for the past 3 years- same date each time for your annual fishing trip. It's unfortunate that there were other guests staying at the complex with unruly children ...and it's especially disturbing to hear that children were unattended on a third floor patio and almost fell through the railing! I will forward your review to the Monaco staff so they are aware of what transpired during your stay. In the 3 years that we've owned the condo we haven't had a poor review so we will definitely address your concerns with the staff. Our sincere apologies for your less than stellar stay.

Where do I begin!!?!

  • 5 of 5

Jaco is such an amazing little town! So much to do with loads of restaurants and bars very near to the condo. The condo itself is so spacious! Very very well decorated, wish I could ask Tamara and Robert to decorate my flat in Scotland for me! After traveling so far from Scotland it was nice to finally arrive and feel like we were staying in such luxury. The showers and bath are HUGE. The beds are super comfortable. The complex has two pools which are both clean and well maintained. There is even a BBQ available at one of the Pools for cooking! Walking through the complex is beautiful as there are many trees and flowers. The cleaners and staff are top quality and super helpful. My fiancé and I loved having a kitchen because we love to go to local markets and cook the fresh local food. Everything we needed was available. Was a holiday of a lifetime and cannot wait to book my next trip! Thank you so much Robert and Tamara. You were so personable and easy to communicate with. Took so much stress out of the booking process.

My husband & I spent 2 weeks at this beautiful condo. It has all the amenities that you would need. The beds are very comfortable and very clean. Very spacious and beautiful. The grounds are immaculate and you have two pools at your disposal. The girls downstairs are extremely friendly and have information on all tours that you would be interested in doing and they pick you up right at the door. There are several really good restaurants all within walking distance as well as walking distance to the beach.
