Overview

Jaco Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom beach house in Jaco

My beach house is located in the center of Jaco Beach, one block from main street in the middle of downtown Jaco. Just 5 minutes walk to 3 grocery stores, 2 banks and 30 restaurants and shopping, but yet located in a quiet and private setting.

From our ocean front property you can hear the constant sound of the waves and feel the ocean breeze. We have a beautiful pool right on the front of the beach, to relax in or to entertaint friends and family.

Often you can see the scarlet macaws, toucans, gekos and off course the green iguanas from the poperty.

The main house is 2 bedroom and the other 4 bedroooms are next to the pool, separated from the house by a beatiful flower garden wih over 100 species of plants.

This house is clean, comfortable and very well maintained, in January 2013 we finished installing new tile flors in the main house, new kitchen cabinets with granite countertops and new kitchen appliances.

Manel Antonio National Park is just one hour drive from the house were you can see different variety of monkeys, tree-sloths and beautiful white sand beaches.

For a thrill you can enjoy the different tours in the area such as the ATV tour or Canopy Zip Line.

Highly recommend this house, repeat visitor.

  • 5 of 5

I’d like to take the opportunity to highly recommend this house for a vacation in Jaco, Costa Rica. Our first visit was 4 years ago for guys trip and we decided to return for a bachelor party. The location is perfect, within walking distance to nightlife and right next door to the Casino. It’s literally beach front on the Pacific, sitting on a scenic part of Jaco Beach. I learned how to surf there, nice size for beginners or highly experienced depending on the time of day. We spent a lot of time both trips hanging out in the awesome pool. Plenty of room to accommodate a large group, you’ll come back with plenty of stories and a great housing experience! House is a good size, comfortable, and very clean.

I wouldn’t recommend this town for families though but a blast for group trips!

The owner of the house is extremely helpful for anything needed along with providing recommendations. He suggested an ATV excursion through the rain forest that was far better than the trip our first time in Costa Rica. He also went above and beyond coordinating airport travel and helping a traveler who had a passport issue. I highly recommend staying here, perfect for any occasion to Jaco.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Our party contained three families -- two grandparents, four grandchildren and their four parents. The Green Iguana was more than enough space for all of us. The location and amenities simply could not have been any better. When sitting pool-side, looking out over the pool to the beach and ocean beyond, it is hard to imagine that only a block away are the best restaurants and shops available in Jaco. Part of the reason for this is the amazing tropical garden on and around the property. It smells so nice in the evening.

When our children allowed us to leave the pool, we were able to walk into town for a bite to eat. The Green Iguana was a great launching spot for several excursions our party took. This location is a short cab ride to Los Suenos Marina. When we wanted to do something, but didn't know how; Steve was there to assist!

I am so glad we chose the Green Iguana for our stay in Costa Rica. It was perfect for our extended family.

Great Property - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 friends stayed at the Green Iguana from February 1 to 14, 2015. The Green Iguana has two buildings for guests. The building at the back of the property has two bedrooms with 2 private bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and living room / TV room. The front building has 4 bedrooms (2 with private bathrooms and 2 bedrooms share 1 bathroom). The front building opens to a large covered patio / bar / fridge area with the pool steps away - pass the pool and through a gated fence and you are on the beach and in the bath warm ocean!

The property is kept in top shape by owner Steve and the hired caretaker Vicky – both are super friendly and want guests to feel like they are at their own home. The daily house-keeping and laundry offered by Vicky was awesome! Regular pool maintenance arrived a few times throughout our stay making sure the pool was clean and inviting.

The property is large and full of plant & tree life with scarlet macaws, iguanas and the occasional group of monkeys passing through the tree tops. With the quiet private feeling at the Green Iguana, it’s hard to believe you are only 200 yards from Pastor Diaz Avenue (the main street in Jaco), where you can find groceries, restaurants, pubs, surf shops, adventure tour operators and night life. Being centrally located and not needing to drive or take a taxi, mean you are always steps from your beachfront vacation home!

Great property with friendly owner and staff!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I have been fortunate enough to stay at Steve's place (The Green Iguana) twice for Thanksgiving back to back. Each time I have brought a different group of friends and the memories and amazing times we have shared at the Villa will never be forgotten. The first trip I did not write a review because I wanted to keep it my best kept secret however I feel I owe it to Steve for his hospitality and always welcoming us with open arms each time we have visited. This is the only Villa on the actual beach in Jaco of its kind, it is centrally located in such a way that you can walk everywhere without hailing a taxi. The grounds are immaculate immersed in luscious landscaping with a variety of tropical plants, palm trees and flowers. Jaco is a safe community and the Villa's secure walls and gates add an extra level of security and privacy for your group to enjoy. There are 3 units that are all yours to enjoy with plenty of Space for 6-10 people to enjoy comfortable. The main house has a nice flatscreen TV, couches, etc and the whole Villa is wifi equipped however if you are connected to the real world while you are there then you are not doing yourself justice!!! The large pool and waterfall with the back drop of the crashing waves creates a picture perfect setting. Sun sets are like none you have ever seen and the surf break is always pumping. If its nightlife you seek the sleepy beach town is alive and well until the early hours of the mornings at the various night clubs and bars along Jaco's main street. If you like to gamble the casino is 100 yards from the Villas secure gates. Steve has connections with all of the local tours wether it be fishing, atv's, zip lining etc you're covered there. In short its worth every penny and I am counting down the days for my 3rd trip.

Amazing Place

Really cool place and owner. I'd recommend this place to my closest friends and just did so to strangers in the airport Sunday. Super chill, worth the $ and beachfront.

Great vacation home and great host!

  • 5 of 5

I have been organizing a vacation for 30 years in a row with a group I graduated from college with. We picked the Green Iguana in Costa Rica based on the size, location and reviews. It was everything I expected an more. Steve had rides set up to an from the airport, booked zip line, ATV, Fishing and reserved an on-site chef. The place is quiet and beautiful yet you can get to all the action you want within a 5 minute walk. Costa Rica is a beautiful and welcoming country but staying at the Green Iguana takes it up another level. I will come visit Steve again.
