SECLUDED VILLA IN RAINFOREST, A FEW STEPS FROM BEACH, & A FEW MINUTES TO TOWN

Jaco House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

This secluded private villa on the coast of the Pacific Ocean (2 Minutes Directly Across from the Beach) is 2 stories, offering privacy between levels, spectacular ocean views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen downstairs with granite countertops and bar, kitchenette upstairs with granite countertop, refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave and breakfast table, living room, custom swimming pool and full laundry room. Located on over 3/4 of an acre, with a private driveway and surrounded by a lush rainforest with no neighboring homes close enough to disturb your privacy, you'll enjoy the spacious patio and 'botanical gardens' in peace and privacy. You'll thrill in the native trees and plants (pick your own bananas when in season) and wildlife that visit regularly, including toucans, macaws, parrots, colorful iguanas (harmless) and, occasionally, monkeys. A custom pool (December 2006) affords a luxury retreat from the day's activities.

You can choose from the many adventures that await you, including the thrill of a canopy tour or zip line, ATV adventures into the rainforest with waterfalls, rivers and wildlife, world class fishing, beaches - including some of the best surfing available in the world, snorkeling, hiking, golf, horseback riding (beach or rainforest), motorcycle rental, and, of course, the best places to eat!

A must on your schedule is a visit to Quepos and the World Famous Manuel Antonio National Park, less than 45 minutes from Casa De Mariposas. You don't have to choose between the rainforest and the beach because the park offers both. Packed with the most unbelievable animals, birds and flora, you'll walk the well maintained trails and come face to face with several species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, toucans, parrots, macaws and dozens of other animal life, all in their unrestricted and natural habitat. Walk to any of the four white sand beaches and explore the tide pools or relax on the beach when not enjoying the blue ocean waters (85 degrees).

Don't be surprised if a family of friendly squirrel monkeys with a baby or two come and visit while you lay on the beach! For the coffee lover, don't forget on the way back to stop at Cafe Milagro located on the front street as you enter Quepos for steaming hot fresh coffee beans made the old fashion way. (Beware! Once you have Cafe Milagro coffee you will be hooked for life.) We are happy to assist you in planning your itinerary and booking your adventures. Our goal is for you to create lasting memories of your visit to Costa Rica.

Thank you for visiting Casa De Mariposas!

Maid service available on request.

The owners were helpful and very nice. The house was beautiful and was a short walk to the beach. I definitely recommend this home to anyone who is looking to stay in the jaco area.

Beautiful house!

  • Submitted: Mar 12, 2014

House was fantastic, large bedrooms and bathrooms. the two caretakers, one on site and one a phone call away if needed, were friendly and helpful. House was very clean. There were 6 of us staying here and we never felt like we were 'on top' of one another, lots of room. We used the facilities of Club del Mar Resort, and the owner was very nice too us. We had the best of both worlds, a beautiful house and use of a resort and minutes from the ocean. Would definitely recommend it. The only downside is the traffice noise, but apparently Les and the owner of Club del Mar are trying to convince Jaco officials to slow the traffic down. Jaco is a great vacation spot, lots to do, we arranged horsebacking riding, zip lining, visited Manual Antonio national park (beautiful beach), and rented a vehicle and drove into the mountains and visited a coffee plantation. All in, a fantastic holiday. Thanks Les, Maria & Alex!

Adults and Babies all had time and space for fun.

The architecture is unique and we loved taking pictures throughout the property. The high wood ceiling is beautiful Bathroom and shower space excellent for honeymooners and for baby tubs. The ramp was quite a challenge to drive up to so we had transportation generally leave us by the stairs. Really get the feel of being in a rainforest. No mosquito attacks. Pool is clean and warm. Kitchen nicely equipped and 2 refrigerators were perfect. Balcony offers amazing views. We left cute ladybug and bumble bee infant floating devices we hope other families will enjoy.
Truly unlimited access to Club Del Mar facilities whose staff is very hospitable and pleasant. Food also good but pricier than nearby delicious Soda y Marisqueria Alta Mar.

You have the best of both worlds at Casa De Mariposas - complete privacy of the villa and ultimate convenience. You'll have your toe in the ocean in a few minutes and just a 5 minute walk on the beach takes you to the center of town!

Your adventure begins at the newly remodeled accommodations of Casa De Mariposas - Spanish for 'House of Butterflies'. There are sixty native species in Costa Rica, many of which you will see on the property.

An added bonus is that our guests are also welcome to the facilities of the Club Del Mar Resort, an exclusive private resort directly across the coastal road from Casa De Mariposas. The Club offers a wonderful Lounge, fine dining, pool, and Spa where you can book a relaxing facial or massage.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa
