Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Luxury, relaxation and splendor are what you will find as your vacation dreams begin at this incredible penthouse at Bahia Enacantada in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica! This is one of only four TRUE penthouses in the complex - meaning that it is on the top floor WITH a private, covered roof top balcony! From the moment you arrive - welcomed by your personal Guest Hosts - until the day you leave, this vacation will be one to remember!

This penthouse suite has something for everyone! From the large, covered balcony - accessible from either the master bedroom or dining room, you can enjoy the incredible sights of the Pacific Ocean. From the eastern bedroom, the majestic mountain vistas are yours to take in! Feel the stress melt away as you begin your day with breakfast on an inlaid stone table for six on that ocean view balcony! In addition, your penthouse includes a private rooftop balcony! Each oceanside balcony is furnished with quality, outdoor furniture where you might catch up on email. (We have also installed 'boosters' to ensure a consistent internet experience). Finish your favorite book, take a nap or just lie around and let your senses get lost in the sounds of the surf and ocean breeze!

While the outdoors is certainly gorgeous, wait until you get inside! You will be delighted to find high-end upgrades throughout the penthouse too! We care about the health of our guests! That is why our penthouse suites are the only two in this complex with ozone machines to ensure mold-free units! Why not pick up some fresh local fruit and vegetables at the Farmer's Market and dine in your spacious, fully-equipped kitchen? It comes complete with stainless appliances, elegant wood cabinetry and service for six! Be sure to make reservations early if your choose to pamper yourself by hiring our own housekeeper to tidy up the penthouse each day so that you don't have to!

For your comfort, all three bedrooms have king-sized beds & two have flat screen TV's! Enjoy a romantic bubble bath in one of the few glass- surrounded tub and shower enclosures in Jaco - as well as a spacious walk-in closet! RELAX in the comfortable, new living room furniture while enjoying the 42' flat screen TV! For your convenience, there is a laundry room with a brand full-sized washer and dryer. By the way, calls to the US and Canada and calls to anywhere in Costa Rica are free!

Although you may never want to leave your 'home away from home', you surely won't want to miss any of the tours, tourist attractions or surfing Costa Rica is so famous for! To the west of Bahia Encantada, you will find palm tree lined beaches between the pools and the ocean. To the south is the city of Jaco. Bahia Encantata is a short 15 minute walk to the center of town! There is no need to rent a vehicle during your stay with us. We offer personal transportation to/from the airport at a very reasonable rate. Our favorite tour companies will pick you up directly at the penthouse. Walking is safe and fun. If you choose not to walk, taxis are plentiful and cost $2.00 - $3.00 most anywhere in downtown Jaco!

About Stephanie Craig

Have you ever had Moose Tracks Ice Cream? We are the developers of this flavor and many others which can be purchased in several grocery stores from coast to coast in the US. We have been coming to Costa Rica since 2005 and purchased our condo at BE in 2007. We love the beauty of Costa Rica and the gentleness of the people here. You can plan to be as busy or as low key as you’d like, which is the beauty of vacationing here. It is a thrill to wake up every morning and see the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Jaco Bay. It is like a symphony for your eyes. We own several companies and our lives tend to be pretty busy in the US. So, we love our time away here in Jaco. Wally plays golf and we both love to read and spend time with friends and family here. Since our time in Jaco, we have friends from different cultures as we enjoy people we have met from all over the world. We love being able to reconnect from year to year and catch up on their lives.

Stephanie Craig purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stephanie Craig chose Jaco

We used to go to Florida every year to escape the snow from the Mid West. The weather in Florida became pretty unpredictable and we spent several winters in Key West with temperatures in the mid 50’s. We have friends who had been coming to Costa Rica and suggested we try it. The first year here made believers out of us and we’ve continued to return. We’ve traveled to many places in the world. We love the fact that we can enjoy this climate while not having to travel so far from home. There are so many activities to enjoy here that there is something for everyone. Last year we had friends who came down who love bird watching. From our balcony, they saw 44 varieties of birds and were thrilled. It isn’t unusual to sit on the balcony and see Macaws in pairs or groups fly by. They are so colorful and absolutely beautiful as they do “a fly by” in front of our balcony.

What makes this condo unique

This condo was our home before we built our own home in the Jaco area, so there is a lot of TLC that went into decorating and keeping it up. It was more than a rental to us. It truly was our home for several months out of each year.

There are many beautiful condos in Jaco - and this is certainly no exception. However, in all of Jaco, there are not too many penthouses, and of those, not many of them have an additional COVERED ROOFTOP balcony with views like this! So, we think that the best feature of this oceanview penthouse is the view from here! The spiral staircase will take you to this breezy hide away where you will enjoy incredible, panoramic views of Jaco Beach, the Pacific Ocean AND the mountains to the east ... breath-taking!

Another unique feature is the full tub in the Master bathroom. Bathtubs are very rare in Costa Rica and this one is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Your experience here gives you the opportunity to be spoiled at every level - for a a great price! While you are here, we want you to feel like family!

Welcome!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our group has stayed in various condos in the Jaco Beach – Los Suenos area for the last eight years. We have found these two condos (G-5 and H-5) to be the best we have rented.



The units were very well kept and supplied with all the necessary amenities. The pools, grounds and beaches were exceptionally clean and inviting. The property managers were great and looked after every detail to ensure that we had a good time during our stay. From this location we were able to enjoy everything there is to do in the area, from some of

the best fishing in the world, to surfing, canopy tours, ATV riding in the mountains - and of course, the wonderful people of Costa Rica.



I encourage anyone wanting to stay at the Bahia Encantada Resort Condos in CR to book either of these units. They will definitely have a wonderful time. 5 Stars!

Bahia Encantada for the Third Time!

  • 5 of 5

For the third time my husband and I stayed in this great condominium. Close to the ocean, pools and restaurants.

The weather is fantastic. Walks along the beach and sunsets were quite enjoyable. Restaurants we enjoyed are Jaco Taco, Carlitas and Crocs. The managers, John and Stephanie, are great and treat you like family. We will continue to make annual visits as long as we can!

Owner's Response: I think this was our favorite time having you both. Each year gets sweeter and each year you become more like 'home folk' to us! So glad that you are happy here because we love seeing you each year. Please come back and see us again next year! It wouldn't be the same without you!!!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was hard to leave! Such an oasis from the cold, New England weather. Everything was fantastic with the condo. Our kids got their own king size beds and bathroom so mom and dad didn't hear any complaints. The pools were amazing, super clean and barely anyone in them most of the week. The ocean view is breathtaking, especially the sunset. We spent a lot of time at Clarita's, the bar/restaurant you can walk to from the condo on the beach. Amazing pizza, of all things! I would highly recommend booking this condo for your vacation. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Stephanie and John for your hospitality. Wish I was still there!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

True! What you see IS what you get! The condo is exactly as the pictures show it to be. It is clean and comfortable. From my first contact with Stephanie and John I knew things were going to be right with this vacation. Stephanie arranged our ground transportation. Spot on! Driver was on time and friendly. Stephanie and John met us at the condo when we arrived. Showed us around and even offered us a ride to the grocery store in town. Because everything in the condo was in working order our only contact with them was arriving and leaving but I am certain if we had a problem or a question they would have coming running. I would also take their recommendation for the tours. The tour company was great. We did white water rafting and Manuel Antonio Park. Loved both. Don't miss Clarita's next door on the beach. Great tacos. Sunsets are spectacular from the rooftop balcony. Thanks again Stephanie and John. Job well done!

What you see is what you get!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what I can say that hasn't been said already. The Condo is amazing with amazing views! What you see on vrbo is exactly what it is like. These photos don’t lie. John and Stephanie were fantastic hosts right from our initial trip's planning stage (airport transfers – if you can fly into San Jose it is much closer, tour operator suggestions, and of course the restaurant list) right to the end of our vacation. Due to us arriving around midnight, Stephanie made sure we were able to access our condo, then made arrangements for us to check in the next morning. Stephanie even gave us a quick tour of the neighbourhood so we had an idea of where things were. There was a small incident with a toilet during our stay, and John was at the condo within minutes to assess the situation and have it repaired within an hour and without any disruption to our day. Overall we loved this condo and the two balconies that it offered. There was plenty of room for us, which included 4 adults and 2 kids. We highly recommend this condo for anyone seeking a lovely stay in Jaco.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your sweet review! We are so glad that you were happy with every part of your vacation. Sorry about the toilet issue. Those chains break every now and then and need a new one. I'm glad that John could get it fixed quickly and without a problem! Know that it would be our pleasure to have you back ANY time!

Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our families first visit to Costa Rica and it did not disappoint! Stephanie and John were most gracious hosts, beginning well before we arrived, arranging transportation and answering numerous questions. The condo was lovely, especially the spectacular views from the penthouse...lush green mountains with hovering clouds on one side, beautiful beach with spectacular sunsets on the other. And it was well equipped, making it perfect for our family. We enjoyed many outings including Rainmaker Park and Manual Antonio but also enjoyed the beautiful pool and beach and the ability to have some down time. Stephanie and John left shopping and dining recommendations, which was so helpful to navigate the many choices. We spent some time in town and also took in some local surfing in nearby Playa Hermosa. Wonderful, vacation with many great memories, and the thoughtfulness and care of Stephanie and John certainly added to that!

Owner's Response: Tracy, You have a lovely family! The notes your kids left around the penthouse, (saying that they didn't want to leave) were so cute! Please know that taking care of you was our pleasure! We enjoy knowing that our guests are as happy as you are. Please come back and see us soon!

First timers

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Costa Rica. We had a great experience starting at the beginning with our welcome information. The arranged transportation went perfectly which made for a great start of our vacation. John and Stephanie were the most gracious, compassionate, and caring hosts. Sometimes you are skeptical of what you see on the Internet, hoping that what you see is what you get. The condo was exactly what we thought we were getting upon arrival. We were in awe of the views and the sound of the ocean waves. The condo was clean and perfect for us. Having coffee on the upper balcony with the sun rising won't be forgotten.

We are already planning our vacation next year and plan on returning to the condo.
