PERFECT FOR FAMILY VACATIONS IN COSTA RICA! HIKING, WATERFALLS, POOL!

Jaco Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

While close to surfing, shopping, restaurants & nightlife, sometimes its nice to stay at a retreat, where you can enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica. We're located about 20 minutes from Jaco, Close enough to enjoy the beaches and all that Jaco has to offer, but where you can also walk out your front door, go for a hike and end up in the waterfalls less than a 1/2 mile, then slip into the private pool overlooking this amazing view of the Nicoya Peninsula, it doesn't get much better.

This home is perfect for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. Overlooking Jaco, Herradura, and the Nicoya Peninsula, and bordering Carara National Park, Cielo Gardens is an excellent destination for vacationers wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect for families, or couples wanting to explore the real Costa Rica.

Cielo Gardens has more than 40 waterfalls of various sizes under the forest canopy and a short walk from the house. The entire ecosystem in this area is built around the constantly flowing spring waters. This is the absolute best location to see this wondrous system in action every single day. These waters draw monarch butterflies, humming birds, dragonflies, and even Costa Rica’s famed colorful tiny dart frogs. Scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, parakeets, parrots and more are seen daily at the waterfalls and trails.

Located in a new gated community, this home was constructed in 2010, and has ocean views from every room in the house. If you like to cook, you'll love the kitchen; cooking a meal while enjoying views of the Nicoya Peninsula is something you'll never forget. The high exposed teak beamed ceilings draw the warmer air up to provide a cool environment within the house. All bedrooms have air conditioning, although the nights can be very cool, and you'll more than likely want to keep the windows open to feel the cool breezes.

There are three spacious bedrooms, two with queen size beds, and one with 4 bunk beds. The large master bedroom has an en-suite bath with large shower. The other 2 bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath and another half bath is off the living area. The living room is furnished with comfortable leather sofas, and a movie library to enjoy.

This home also features it's own private pool and outdoor dining area overlooking the amazing ocean views of Nicoya Peninsula and Gulf. All within a 20 minute drive you'll find a Tilapia farm, where you can fish for your own lunch! And they'll cook it up however you like. Also a short drive away is Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls - where you'll also find Adventure Dining - ranked among the top restaurants in the area with Trip Advisor. Day trips include a day in Manuel Antonio, or Dominical. There's just so much to do, but you'll want to find time to enjoy this wonderful retreat.

We've been visiting Costa Rica for over 20 years, and we love it. And of all the places we have visited, this had the most amazing views of all.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Waterfalls! We love to walk down to the waterfalls and take a cool dip in the pools. It the best way to start the mornings!

We had a perfect stay at this house! We didn't think we would use the pool very much, but we ended up using it almost every morning. It's secluded and quiet. I saw butterflies, dragonflies, and 5 toucans one morning all in the backyard! fyi, don't leave your camera in the kitchen if you are going outside to swim or read. Never know what you might see. The few neighbors we met were extremely nice and helpful. And Kelie was amazing. Took time out of her day to help us with any questions we had when we first arrived. The drive to the house gets a little long after about a week, but it didn't really bother us. We just made sure we had everything we needed for the day before leaving. A flashlight did come in handy a few times. Any night walks, you might need one. I would stay here again if or when I return to Jaco area.

This place was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Talk about getting away from it all! You do need a 4 wheel drive but the drive is fun too! The views were outstanding, the sunsets to die for. The house was clean and I loved the design, all the doors opened to the pool and the views. It had everything to make it an enjoyable comfortable stay, but what makes this place stand out is the charm. I couldn't have been happier with renting this. From the sunrise in the morning to the sunset in the evening there couldn't be a prettier spot. LOVE IT!

Recently we had the pleasure of staying at this amazing Chateau in Costa Rica. It was everything the listing said ... and more! Not only was the property quiet & secluded, but the Manager was extraordinary! The property is well maintained and had everything we needed for a peaceful, very relaxing holiday. Our Manager added a lot to the enjoyment of our trip as well. She was very eager to provide us with suggestions of things to see and do and the best places to eat - even the little gems tucked away in the mountains. We can't wait to visit again ... next time it will definitely be longer! After sharing pictures of our trip with our family, I expect we'll have some stow-a-ways next time!

Jaco get away

The home was nice and had beautiful views. Unfortunately it is quite a 20 minute drive up the mountain to get there from Jaco. Our little front wheel cars had a hard time getting to the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Reid. I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and the views. I was a little concerned about the small front wheel drive cars you rented, and how they would do on our roads. I try to remember too urge everyone to rent 4x4 when visiting this property, or really any property in Costa Rica. Aside from the highways, Costa Rican roads, especially in the mountains, are mostly unpaved and can be a bit of a pain without 4x4 and especially in the small cars. I hope, aside from the roads, you enjoyed your vacation. Kelie
