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!

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 this is our seventh year 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

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.

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 oceanview 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!

THE PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS PLACE JUSTICE!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was beyond amazing and we could not of asked for a better vacation in Jaco, Costa Rica. Stephanie and her husband treated us like family and made sure our stay exceeded our expectations. Our vacation was relaxing and adventurous all at the same time. We ate every meal on the gorgeous balcony and feel asleep to the sounds of the ocean. The amenities are endless, you could never leave the complex and be satisfied. Our family of five ventured out and went to the National Park, horse back riding, shopping, and sight seeing. Thank you Stephanie and John for ensuring our return to Jaco and staying in your Oceanfront Penthouse.

Love Faith, Travis, Travis Jr, Mary, and Melissa :)

As for the pictures... we are proud to announce that the week you left, we had a professional photographer take photos of this penthouse and #395145! Now, I believe the photos are as lovely as the condos deserve. Take a look and see what you think. I would really like to hear your opinion.

Thanks again for your review - and for the time you shared with us. You were GREAT guests. Please come and see us again soon!

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY & PENTHOUSE!

Beautiful country & penthouse!
  • 5 of 5
What a time we had! First, I can't say enough about how helpful the Craig's are with planning this trip and their warm welcome when we arrived. They are a wealth of information and just lovely people! Take them up on the offer of arranging rides to/from the airport - even that was fun as the driver did his own 'tour' for us and well worth the money to not navigate the San Jose streets. The penthouse is gorgeous, spacious and who wouldn't love all those decks with views of the mountains and ocean! I didn't cook a lot, but the kitchen was well equipped. Beautiful bathrooms and having a washer/dryer was great. Our adult 'kids' joined us there, so there were 5 of us and there was plenty of space. The complex is well secured by a group of pleasant staff, who are always happy to arrange a cab when we were just to worn out to walk anymore. We loved our Combo Rappell & Zip Line tour - the guides were great fun and shared their knowledge about the rainforest and it's animals. We also did an ATV tour which was breathtaking (and not always in a good way!) - that tour's highlight was a freshly made lunch on top of a mountain - wow, the best meal I had all week. On our own, we toured the Carara National Park and Manuel Antonio where we saw lots of monkeys, iguanas and macaws. We only needed a car rental for those trips. The only inconvenience we had was the noise from Carrita's Restaurant/Bar and the rooster that lives next door - ear plugs suggested for the karaoke nights unless you're going to participate :) We LOVED this trip and hope to check out other parts of Costa Rica - maybe even eventually do the 'snowbird' thing and stick around a few months a year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Mitzi for your kind words! You were all terrific! I'm so sorry to hear about Claritas and the rooster! I will look into this and see what was going on because our guests in the past have always said that they shut down the music around 10 PM. As far as the rooster goes - a few months ago, the complex bought the roosters from the offending neighbors. This is the first I have heard about any reports since then. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience. They will be addressed. Still, I'm so glad that you had such a nice time and hope that we will see you again soon!

VERY SPECIAL

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful, well equipped and nicely decorated penthouse condo with beautiful views
and a wonderful covered rooftop patio. Prop mgrs. John and Stephanie are great and
on-sight prop mgr. Fernan can assist you with anything. You can walk to restaurants
and stores and cab rides take only 5 minutes and 2 bucks to town center. Ask for a
cab at the gate and its there in 2 minutes. Everyone takes dollars and you're fine
if you don't speak Spanish. The Costa Ricans are wonderful.
A heads-up for light sleepers, bedrooms 2 and 3 overlook a yard with several roosters
that crow at all hours of the night. Nothing that alcohol and earplugs couldn't remedy.
Just be prepared for it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great comments Michael. We really enjoyed meeting you and your family and are so glad you had such a nice time! I have GREAT news for you! THE ROOSTERS ARE GONE! Right after you left, the roosters were purchased for a fair price and a deal was negotiated with the owner to ensure that the roosters will NOT be replaced! Thanks for your great attitude!!! Can't wait to see you all again!

COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A MORE PERFECT EXPERIENCE

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience
  • 5 of 5
We booked this rental based on the pictures provided by the owner, as well as the reviews for this property. Truth is, pictures and reviews don't do this rental justice. The views are surreal, and the sunsets, well y'all will have to witness those for yourself. Best vacation ever, and we will see y'all around the same time next year! Thanks again!

Thank you again for your great review. We can't wait to see you all again soon!!!

PURA VIDA!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in this penthouse condominium. Appreciated the lovely views, comfortable furnishings, air conditioning, pool and proximity to the ocean!
Stephanie and John were very welcoming and we appreciated their recommendations for food shopping and excursions. Much of our time was spent exploring areas north and south of Jaco through participation in organized tours. The Costa Rican landscape was gorgeous, the people were very friendly and the food was very good!

It does our hearts good to see extended families coming together to share an experience like this. We are thrilled that you had a good time and hope that you will all come back and see us again soon!
