Jaco Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

How about this for your next dream vacation? Spectacular views of Jaco Bay, Costa Rica as the sun sets over the horizon... Swimming in the 80 degree ocean waters... or trying to catch a wave in the 4-6 foot breakers... All of this is waiting for you in our fabulous ocean view penthouse condo at Bahia Encantada - 2007's Costa Rican Property of the Year! 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!

Large sliding glass doors open from both the master bedroom and the dining room to a large balcony - overlooking palm tree-lined Jaco Beach. A circular staircase rises from the balcony to the private, covered rooftop terrace - presenting a magnificent view of the entire Jaco Beach! Enjoy sunsets with family and friends while sipping a cool beverage and sampling fresh cheeses, fruits and veggies - all produced locally and available from the Farmer’s Market, (every Friday)!

While the outdoors is certainly gorgeous, the inside is even better! You will be delighted to find high-end upgrades throughout this spectacular penthouse! Your spacious, fully equipped kitchen comes complete with stainless appliances - including a refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, elegant wood cabinetry and service for six! 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! You may pamper yourself by hiring our own housekeeper to tidy up the penthouse each day so that you don't have to, although a complimentary 'mid-stay' cleaning is included in every reservation of 7 days or more! If you choose to dine out, we have a list of great restaurants! Local food is all within walking distance or a very short taxi drive!

You won't be disappointed to find that all three of the large bedrooms have king sized beds! There is a large 42 inch flat screen TV in the living room and two more flat screen TV's in the bedrooms as well as a DVD player. This place doesn't miss a thing!!!

Let your family know how much fun you are having because all calls to the US and Canada, (local calls too) are all FREE! In order to ensure the best Internet connections, we have installed private boosters for our guests. For your convenience, phone numbers for taxi service, medical care and physicians are also included in our personal directory.

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!

Ready for some adventure? Zip line tours through the rain forest; white water rafting; motor scooters; ATV rentals and tours; and horseback riding are all easy and convenient to schedule. Golf and sailfish excursions are only fifteen minutes away at the Los Suenos Resort! It’s your vacation! Do it your way!!!

In order to accommodate our larger parties, this owner proudly offers an additional 3 bedroom/ 2.5 bath, penthouse condo with rooftop balcony next door for parties of up to 12 people!!! We also reward our faithful return customers with a 5% discount to show our appreciation for your patronage!

So, isn't it time to give us a call and book that dream vacation? For an additional charge, we even offer transportation to and from the airport with advance reservations.

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 many 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 coming to 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

There are many beautiful condos in Jaco - and this is certainly no exception. In all of Jaco, there are not too many penthouses, and of those, not many of them have an additional balcony and views like this! So, we think that the best features of this ocean view penthouse are the views from the covered rooftop balcony! A spiral staircase will give you access from the main balcony to this covered rooftop balcony, where you will enjoy INCREDIBLE views of Jaco Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west AND a majestic mountain range to the south... STUNNING!

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

While you are here, you will have the opportunity to have personal, personal, personal service! While you are in our home, it is important to us that you FEEL at home.

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 (H-5 and G-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!

Amazing is an understatement! Stephanie and John were nothing less than amazing hosts! We arrived at the condo and were immediately blown away, the condo and the view were phenomenal. There were 4 of us staying at the condo and between the 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms there was plenty of space for us to all get ready to take on everything Jaco and Bahia Encantada had to offer! Clarita's right downstairs was great for quick lunch and/or dinner on the beach, and was not loud at all. There is a small restaurant I believe the name was Raquel's, next to the Soda at the front gate that served an amazing breakfast! Although the rooster was loud enough to wake us up in the morning, it was the perfect alarm clock to get us going! Croc's the new casino around the corner was awesome. There was an issue with the wifi and Stephanie immediately came and found us hanging out by one of the 3 pools and kept us informed of the progress for restoration we were on vacation , who needs wifi!! I can't even begin to properly explain how perfect the condo and location were! We will definitely be returning for our second annual ladies trip!

Owner's Response: Hi Ladies. Thank you for your great review! We are so glad you had a such a nice time. We really enjoyed getting to know you! I'm glad the roosters are respectful and wait till it is time to wake up to crow! While you were very gracious when the wifi went down, I do apologize about it. Rarely, those things do happen. Fortunately, we were able to get it addressed and running again within a few hours. Thanks for your good attitudes! So glad you are planning on coming to see us again. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

An amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica! Every moment of our experience was positive right from our first inquiry to John and Stephanie until the moment we said our good-byes and hopped into the pre-arranged transportation back to the airport. The condo will not disappoint. It looks just like the photos - clean, spacious, comfortable for our extended family of 6. And there is nothing that compares to that view. Morning coffee on the the roof top terrace, followed by long walks on the quiet beach, short walks into town to experience the culture and we ended our day watching the sun set over the ocean. Our group ranged in age from 13 to 75 and everyone enjoyed the trip. We would definitely go back.

A Great Place to Stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting Jaco and I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay at Bahia Encantada. The condo was quite spacious and offered all the comforts of home. You're right on the beach and the large pool was a great place to relax.

Hands down my favorite thing about the penthouse at Bahia Encantada was the two level balcony with a great view of the beach/ocean. It's a great spot to read a book in the morning or watch the sunset in the evening while enjoying a cold beverage.

My group of friends did not rent a car and I never felt one was necessary as everything in Jaco is a very short cab ride away. My favorite activities were zip lining and an ATV ride. Some of my favorite restaurants were Graffiti, Side Street Bistro, & Tacobar.

The property managers Stephanie & John were great to work with and had many great suggestions regarding activities and places to eat. This will definitely not be my last visit to Bahia Encantada.

The best.

  • 5 of 5

For the last 10 years we have been going to Costa Rica, Our passion if fishing, but every time is wear to stay, this time we found a home away home place in the penthouse that Stefanie and John Craig manage at Bahia Encantada Condominiums, from the time they meet us at the apartment to give us the keys we felt at home.

The Penthouse apartment is huge with tree bedrooms and 2 and 1/2 baths. The AC is grate

The kitchen has every thing you need, the terrace on the top looking the ocean is the best.

Thank you, Stephanie and John you will see us next year.

Best Location On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo has everything you would want with an ocean view. The penthouse above the outside balcony is a great place to drink coffee and watch the Macaw parrots in the morning and watch sunsets in the evening. Taxis to get around Jaco are only $2.00 so you may not need a car. If you are going for the surf, Jaco has plenty of board rentals, with lessons taught on the south end of the bay and intermediate surfing in front of the Condo. Like all ocean resorts, heed rip current warnings. For the more experienced, Hermosa is only 10 minutes away and picks up a larger, faster, more powerful wave than Jaco. Hermosa can break leashes and boards. Stephanie and John were most accommodating and can arrange transfers from San Jose. I would definitely come back to this place.

Great Condo!

  • 4 of 5

Cute and cozy condo directly on the beach! Everything was as advertised, the view was awesome! Stephanie and John were great! It was our second time staying in Jaco and this condo was definitely a good choice! Walking distance to most places, Clarita's is basically next door! The only downfall was the roosters next door crowing early in the morning, but I know Stephanie and John are already in the process of taking care of that! Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you Stephanie for everything!

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa. Thank you for the review. We are so glad that you had a great time in Jaco. So sorry about the roosters - and thank you for letting us know. We had the 'rooster situation' taken care of last season. We didn't know that they were back until you told us. The problem is currently being addressed. I hope that won't spoil your memories of this incredible place! Thanks again for coming and hope to see you again soon! Blessings, Stephanie
