Our balcony is where we spend all of our time. Overlooking the ocean, you can relax on the two lounge chairs or around the 6 persons table. The ocean breeze and the sound of the crashing waves lulls any guest into serenity. The sunset takes place right over the beach, onto Monkey Beach a few yards away. Rainbow Macaws fly and rest in the almond trees on the beach in front of the balcony. This is our heaven.

The Master Bedroom furnished with a King size bed can be accessed from the balcony, you get a view of the ocean right from your bed. We have also screened in the master as the living room area so you can feel the breeze at any point during day or night. The ceiling of the master as well as the rest of the condo is made of bamboo giving an eclectic beach front feeling.

Anne Catherine Mulliez purchased this condo in 2010

Why Anne Catherine Mulliez chose Jaco

My family first bought a condo in this complex in 2010 (code 304863) because we love Costa Rica and wanted a place to meet up every year. We bought this condo in 2013 because my parents wanted the "hideout from the kids"; the balcony is the perfect private place to relax.

Jaco is the perfect place because we are all so different and Jaco enables each person to do what they want.

The condo is on the north end of the beach, right where the sun sets. We're 2 mins away from the center of town, a $2 cab. We're in walking distance of a beach bar, fine dining, monkey beach and surf board rentals. You can relax here and go right into town if you need anything.

We're an 1:15h from the San Jose airport, 45 mins from Manuel Antonio, 3 hours from Arenal, 15mins from Costa Rica's largest waterfall, 15 mins from Carara national park, 10 mins from Canopy Tours, 10 mins from a local fish market. Jaco has a great food scene, markets, made in Costa Rica boutiques, super markets, car rental places. Everything is HERE. Everything can be done from here.

We'll all come together around the table on the balcony to watch the ocean during lunch. Then while some go play at the pool, my parents can relax on their lounge chairs to the calm sound of the ocean. We'll all come back up for drinks during sunset. This is the best part about the condo and Jaco. Some can stay and read.Others can go on adventures all around and go out at night. There is even a delivery service if you forgot to pick up something in town. Costa Rica and this condo is where VACATION happens.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing amenities speak for itself. Having direct access to the ocean right off the balcony makes this place amazing. Since I live here, I can give you local insight into Jaco and the surrounding areas. If anything isn't functioning properly, Celine, our unit manager will be here to take care of it.

Come enjoy the amazing sunsets, the ocean breeze, premium service and the best condo complex in town that we have come to love.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hands Down Best Family Trip, something to do for everyone! Unit 301S was the perfect beachfront getaway for my husband and three teenagers. View was spectacular, patio was spacious and equipped with 6 chair dining table and two comfortable lounge chairs.

The generous sized 3 bedrooms offered ample space for teens to relax after a fun filled day of adventures. Master suite had comfortable bedding and amazing views. Unit was fully equipped from beach towels, washer and dryer, to kitchen necessities.

Convenient location, minutes from local shops and restaurants. Celine, the unit's property manager, assisted us with organizing day trips to partake in activities such as ATV trailing, zip-lining, rain forest touring and our teenagers personal favorite...surfing with a personal instructor.

Transportation to and from the airport was comfortable and well organized. 24 hour guard, gated community and friendly groundskeepers made us feel 100 % welcome. Would highly recommend this stay to families with teens that air on the adventurous side!

We are a family of four that very much enjoyed our stay. Celine was most helpful with some food to get us started, and arranging transportation from Fabricio to/from airport and to several tourist areas. Taxi rides to town were inexpensive where we had many delicious meals.

The condo was beautiful, very comfortable for 5 travelers, and the balcony was a joy. We had a great time cooking breakfast every day and a couple of meals during the week. Thank you for the provisions! Location rocked and Jaco did not disappoint. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Dear Cynthia Thank you so much for your kind words. I am very glad you enjoyed the condo and Jaco which has really improved these past years. The covered patio is my favorite place especially for my very early coffee when I am there. The Lounge chair near the master is my spot! The provisions as you mentioned is the result of arriving in the middle of the night following a long trip and no coffee left! So I decided to offer a welcome package to our guests. I hope you saw monkeys at Monkey Beach and the Macaws on the almond trees in front of our unit. Celine and I will be very happy to host you again in the future. Best Regards Anne-Catherine

Best Location on Jaco Beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, secure, and almost isolated from the town of Jaco yet within walking distance or a $2.00 cab ride. Jaco beach is great to walk on for 4-5km. from Tres Regalos to the other end.

An excellent selection of restaurants are nearby. Surf school, zip-lining fishing expeditions etc.pick you up at the front gate. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.

Our unit had extraordinary comfort, right on the beach and had great views of the Pacific sunsets and was very well equipped for long stays. (laundry, cooking etc )

An easy 200 yard walk down the beach northward through the forest and you find yourself photographing monkeys, sloths and scarlet macaws. (take a ripe banana or mango)

The owner, Anne-Catherine and her manager, Celine anticipated our every need and made us feel like we were at our home away from home. The welcoming basket with wine, coffee and other essentials was most appreciated and a very thoughtful and generous touch.

The pool is quiet and a place to relax and meet new friends or just read a book and work on your tan. We swam in the ocean out front every day too.

What a great location.We will return for a longer stay next year.

Owner's Response: Dear Linda and Joe Thank you so much for the compliments. We really appreciate your kind words. I have thought about your next stay and just bought a French Press for Linda.. I will bring it on my next trip in Jaco. Following Linda's recommendation, I will make sure to visit Aurora yoga and already mentioned the place to future guests. Celine and I are very happy to have you both and your friends as guests next year. Amities Anne-Catherine

Paradise!!!!! Pura Vida!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to express what an amazing condo this was. The pictures are dead on...And the owner, Anne, is truly one of the most accommodating owners I have ever met. I have no complaints what's so ever...Only Good things to say.

The front door as well as both patio doors have screens on them to let the morning air flow thru. To be able to have the patio doors open in the Master bedroom at night while you drift off to sleep by the sounds of the waves was amazing. The view from the balcony is spectacular. Tres Regalos is within walking distance to shops, groceries and restaraunts in Jaco or just a very short cab ride.

I look forward to hopefully spending a couple of months back here in this unit in 2020.....Anne...thank You for everything, it was a pleasure meeting you and I can't thank you enough for meeting our needs. You and Celine made us feel like we were home away from home...Pura Vida

Owner's Response: Dear Shelley and Russ Thank you so much for your kind words and your review. As you, I never have enough of the sound and view of the waves crashing on the beach. Each evening the sunset looks different and being able to sleep with just the screen doors has a very calming effect indeed. Thanks to you too for your suggestion to add a 3 rd Tv in the queen bedroom and your favorite "rice cooker!" I am glad you have been enjoying your stay and especially to meet you in person. You, your husband and your sister have been such lovely guests. Hoping to have you back as guests in a near future. Kindly Anne Catherine and Celine

This property was immaculately clean, adorably designed and the view was spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

What a special place Jaco Beach is. Celine was there every step of the way, prompt and resourceful! Shower head came loose, Celine had it replaced within a couple hours. I screwed up my transportation dates back to the city and Celine had transportation to pick us up within 30 minutes. The condo was beautiful and one of the most memorable New Years I’ve had. We watched the most amazing sunsets from our balcony in the most comfy lounge chairs. Front row seats in those same lounge chairs for the fireworks display on New Years. You will not find a better place to stay in Jaco than Anne Catherine’s condo. The pictures don’t lie and I absolutely cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so lucky to have Celine as Unit manager who is so dedicated to our guests needs. I am glad you got the best seat in the house for the fireworks display! It must have been something...It is true that the views from the patio can be quite stunning and changing everyday. We are also very happy you enjoyed the condo which was totally repainted a few months before your arrival and some new furniture added for everyone's comfort. We would be delighted to host you and your friends again. It is always a pleasure for us to have guests returning to our condo. Wishing you a great New Year. Kindly Anne Catherine and Celine

Beautiful condo! Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived, for our month long stay, to an attractively decorated condo with an amazing view, refreshments and a "starter package" of fruits, coffee, eggs, bread...everything we'd need for the morning before groceries were purchased. Always a nice touch!

Being the end of the rainy season (which can be a bit "unpredictable") the surf roared and waves crashed, filling the condo with wonderful, tropical "noise!" We choose to keep all of the doors open with the screens shut for the breezes that cool the condo during the morning...utilize the AC in the afternoon. Spent every morning with our coffees on the balcony (unless walking on the beach) watching the amazing, often comical birds, squirrels, surfers, beach strollers, and the occasional horse. We were fortunate enough to watch dolphins one morning, macaws daily...first you hear them...then you see them! Morning walk on the beach to the bakery to pick up fresh churros or various other pastries/baking. Every Friday morning (6:30am) to the Farmer's Market (what they call the Feria) for fresh produce.

The condo is a short walk from downtown, next door to Crocs (which occasionally has music blaring but nothing offensive and it's usually finished at a reasonable hour). We were able to watch the start of "La Ruta"...a cross country bicycle race...right from the balcony and various other events...which was fun. Several little outdoor restaurants nearby or a $2 taxi to town...ideal location for people who don't want to be "in town!" Ocean in front of you, pool at the bottom of the stairs, elevator for packing groceries, wonderful staff and security!

This is a great condo, with a super manager (thanks Celine)...who can set you up with a driver (thank you, Fab) from San Jose and back, recommend activities and deal with anything that may come up!

Being on the third floor puts you about even with the water as the sand bar is so high which made the surf sooo loud some nights we had to close the doors just to get some sleep...hahaha! Seriously!

Thank you Anne Catherine and family...we love your condos and look forward to March and the third visit to the third condo! Would recommend these properties to anyone who wants a great vacay in a lovely, clean, fully equipped condo...perfect location.

Oh...did I mention that the sunrises on the beach and the sunsets from the balcony are to die for! Pura Vida from Team Canada!

Owner's Response: Dear Team Canada. Thank you so much for your wonderful review which describes so well our condo 301's features and especially its atmosphere. You are totally right by writing that sometimes the crashing waves make so much noise... Also, thinking about you both, I have made a special note on buying cookie sheets. You always have been fantastic guests and hoping you will have a great time in 102. Wishing you all the Best in 2018. Anne Catherine et Celine. (The French Team!)

Our condo is the place to relax on your own lounge chairs, on your balcony overlooking the ocean. The master bedroom overlooks the ocean! We have screened in the whole condo so that you can leave your doors open to the ocean waves all day and night.

Jaco has a great food scene; fine dining and local dining alike. Fresh market on fridays for all your fruits and vegetables. The local fish market 15mins away. If you forgot to pick up wine at the store, we have a delivery service that will bring it to you! Claritas is a 7 mins walk down the beach. Croc's is next door.
