Overview

Jaco Villa Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms,1 jacuzzi, 2 kitchens, 3 BBQ, sleeps 19 in 11 beds

A beach front villa of over 1 acre, 15 minutes North of down town Jaco.

Can accommodate from a single couple in a honey moon, to an entire wedding party of up to 19 persons.

The 3 homes made mostly out of Teak wood & local rock.

All 3 units over look the beach, with the pool home over looking both the pool & the beach.

All surrounded by Almond & other fruit trees, where Scarlet Macaws & other tropical birds come to feed daily.

The beach waters are calm and very safe for children to play.

A waterfall is only a short walk down the beach, where you can wash off the salt water before walking back to the house to cool off in the pool.

The location of this particular beach front estate is ideal for travelers who would like to explore CR.

Close to all major attractions in the area and yet is very private, peaceful and full of wild life.

Only 15 minutes to Jaco,10 to Los Sueños marina, 70 to airport.

The estate has available a bilingual concierge, cooking staff, house keeper, & 24 hour security guard.

Please understand that at times ants will be found around the kitchen if you do not clean after your done .

This villa is on the outskirts of the rainforest and at certain times all sorts of wild life may be found around the villa.

If you feel that you can not accept ants coming around the kitchen to see what they could find is probably best to find more suitable accommodations.

Subject: thank you again and again

Just looking at our pictures of Macaw Beach and wishing I was still there.

It's been so hard adjusting to 'real' life again.

I can't tell you how many people we have all bragged to about your paradise in Costa Rica.

I don' t think in our wildest dreams we could have come up with a better place to stay or better people to spend time with.

The guys have loved giving out the website with their Sail fish pictures on it. Paul and I are already planning to return in September. I will keep in touch and let you know what we figure out. If you need any testimonials please let me know or just add my email and address to your list of satisfied customers.

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks again for the best vacation ever,

Carrie Ensogna

About Sal & Maria

Retired and moved to the coast to fish, found this villa and renovated it.

Sal & Maria purchased this villa in 2003

Why Sal & Maria chose Jaco

The location is perfect, not too far from San Jose about an hour away and the fishing is great around here.

What makes this villa unique

Since this villa is on the beach it self, is easy go fishing every day.

At the same time is close to downtown but not so close, so you can feel relaxed and away form it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello! My family and I just spent six weeks at the Macaw House and want to let you know what a wonderful experience it was.

Everything was beautiful and we had a great time!

Your staff helped make the trip so nice.

The staff supervisorl was extremely helpful in anything we needed -- he arranged drivers for us, told us places to go.

I want to express my gratitude to him, and the rest of the staff.

They are all very nice people and made it so enjoyable for us!

Rosaura even brought me a bouquet of flowers on my birthday!



Thank you for the use of the home. I'm sure we'll be back!

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us recently had the pleasure of vacationing at this property for 7 days. Words are not adequate to express how pleasant our stay was at the facility. The staff supervisor was always available for any questions we might have had, recommendations for tours and restaurants, and medical emergencies (which we had). If we needed anything, the staff supervisor did his best to make sure we were accommodated including running errands for food, beverages or last minute souvenirs. And always with a smile!

The staff was on hand everyday for maintenance and cleaning, never interfering. We ordered a cook for one night and had one of the best dinners with freshly caught Corvina (Sea Bass). Our only regret as that we didn't take advantage of that service more.

The location was quiet and sedate with spectacular views. The housing was clean and comfortable. We were visited by scarlet macaws and iguanas. We drank straight from coconuts and were able to pick fruit off the trees for the parrots in the bird house, as well as, for ourselves. Overall, our stay couldn't have been more perfect. If you are looking for a place relax and unwind, then look no further, this is it!

Best Experience in Costa Rica Ever

  • 5 of 5

The three houses are side-by-side allowing you to be close to your loved ones but not too close..... The pool is fantastic and very clean. Every morning Roxie comes in and brews fresh Costa Rican coffee for everyone. Then she cleans up the house to make things spotless. She also does your laundry if needed. The setting feels nicely isolated from the crowds of Jaco. It is truly serene and peaceful. Many Iguanas run the property and the trees along with several tropical Macaw (spelling?) birds. We were entertained for hours simply watching all the iguanas scurry through the tree tops and the bushes. Our wedding was on the beach and Sal did an awesome job at getting everything we needed for the wedding. Sal even hired local carpenters to build a bamboo arch covered with palm leaves for our ceremony. Sal is the property manager and he knows everything about everything in Costa Rica. This property is approximately seven miles north of the city of Jaco. There are hundreds of shops, restaurants and attractions in Jaco. It was nice to explore the areas and then come home to this serene setting each evening. There are also several fantastic (small) restaurants within walking distance that serve local foods with great service. I have been to Costa Rica three times and I have stayed at fine resorts across the country. This property offers the setting of a fine resort with the privacy of a house and the ocean is just through the back yard. If you go here remember to put ALL foods in the refrigerator because the tiny ants will inundate your perishables overnight. This property is paradise if you are looking for a serene setting with wildlife, a pool, the ocean, great location and fantastic property staff. Sal is the man!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I almost did not stay there due to reviews that mentioned a problem with ants, I am glad I did stay there. I never saw any ant problems but I did see plenty of beautiful birds and butterflies. The only problem I had was when it was time to leave, I wanted to stay longer. This is beautiful serine place to relax. The man that takes care of the place is wealth of information about the area and a great guide for all the activities we wanted to do. I will be back next year.

A perfect getaway for a group!

  • 5 of 5

There really are no words to express how amazing our experience was. The houses themselves were quite fine, the A/C was great (almost too great in some of the rooms!) and the kitchen was fully equipt with everything we needed (we cooked dinners 3 or 4 nights...there is oven/stove all the pots/pans you need and some slow cookers). There is a review that mentions ants, and it is quite dramatic. Are there ants? Yes. It's the tropics. If you want a vacation with no bugs, then don't go to the tropics. If you leave food out in the kitchen, will ants come in? Yes. Again, this is nothing specific to this house, it's just the tropics!

The highlight of the week, hands down, is the property manager (Sal) and our cook (Rosie)...they were OUT OF THIS WORLD! The first day there, Sal blew up all of our pool floaties, took us to the market, and kept around until early afternoon to make sure we had everything we needed. The entire week he was around when we needed him, but it didn't feel like he was always around disrupting our privacy. Whenever we had an issue (be it at 8am or midnight) he was a phone call away and never seemed bothered at any of our needs (and with 12 women, I'm sure we were a bit high maintenance). Rosie was there every single morning making us coffee, fresh pineapple juice, and took requests for fresh guacamole and other things whenever we asked...she was amazing!!

Below are some considerations for you:

* Bring some walkie-takies to communicate across the different houses (we had ladies in all three houses, and just felt too lazy to walk between them...haha!)

* The wifi is a phone hotspot, which works great for basics, but plan accordingly (you can't have 10 people on there at the same time). This wasn't a problem (and shouldn't be for you) because you're on vacation...so disconnect =)

* Bring some pool floaties (the pool is really nice sized...we had 8 floaties in the pool and still had loads of room to swim and play around).

I cannot recommend this home more. Not only are the actual houses wonderful, but Sal and Rosie will make your vacation a trip of a lifetime!

12 Ladies from Chicago Who Had an AMAZING Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned today from our 7 day stay at the Macaw Beach House and have nothing but wonderful things to say. The house manager and cook/cleaning woman were both spectacular and really made the trip. We rented all 3 houses - they were clean and well appointed. When we needed clean linens, bug spray - or AC repair the staff took care of things immediately. We felt spoiled rotten by the cook/cleaning lady - she made us coffee and breakfast each day (we supplied groceries and she took it from there), washed all the dishes and cleaned each house thoroughly on a DAILY basis, even made us some amazing guacamole one afternoon. The house manager took care of picking up groceries and supplies for us on more than one occasion, coordinated transportation to and from Jaco for us a few days, helped us overcome the language barrier when we were setting up tours, and so much more. He truly was a house manager, concierge, and all around super nice guy! He checked in on us daily to see if we needed anything, but didn't hover or bug us at all. He even made some amazing restaurant recommendations locally where we had great food for a great price.

The houses are pretty basic, no frills - but all you need for a wonderful tropic vacation (great water pressure, clean and spacious, plenty of bath towels and beach towels provided as well). The pool was spectacular, we spent a ton of time enjoying it. This place was just perfect for our group - I highly recommend this rental to anyone. I've rented houses through VRBO many times before and can honestly say I've never had such amazing service from the day we booked back in October to our departure last night.
