Jaco House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This great home has the feel of a tropical paradise with its large yard and gardens, huge thatched-roof rancho, palm trees and gentle ocean breezes. The house has just been completely remodeled and updated with new windows, furniture and air conditioning.

It is located in Jacó's nicest neighborhood, Barrio Ricos y Famosos. It is quiet and safe, and yet just a short 10-minute walk from the center of town and an abundance of shops, restaurants, galleries, clubs, bakeries, ice cream parlors, etc.

Let us help make your Costa Rican vacation a truly memorable experience! We can arrange tours and activities at discounts of 20% - 40%, recommend great hikes and spots to catch the sunsets or even arrange for fresh local foods to be prepared for you in the comfort of your home.

With large fenced yard, rancho and swimming pool, this home is ideal for families.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this tropical paradise, the town of Jacó or Costa Rica in general.

Pura Vida,

Private, Comfortable Home-Away-From-Home

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this little home! The gardens were lovely — our dog deeply appreciated that the property was completely fenced — and the pool, absolutely perfect; my son, husband and MIL spent hours and hours in it daily. The house was cozy and the kitchen, well equipped. Appreciated the bedroom a/c! The only addition we'd love to see, would be some fans in the rancho, as a mosquito deterrent. Thank you, Vivian!

This place was great! The owner and Rebecca were so incredibly helpful, and made our stay a memorable one. House was clean and close to town, yet quiet enough to lay by the pool and read a book. Will be staying here again.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this lovely house in 2015 and 2016. Walking distance to shopping, groceries, restaurants, bars and beach. AC in bedrooms works great, watched scarlet macaws fly over daily as well as many other species of birds. Always felt safe staying here, property is gated. Pool and cabana in back yard is amazing, great for relaxing and catching some sun too. Look forward to returning again soon!

Great place and great area!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from being at this house for 10 days... Our stay was fantastic! Very cute little house in a quiet area, with an amazing back yard! After looking around town and seeing what else there is in Jaco, I would highly recommend this place.

Just to update from comments below: AC works great and the dog wasnt that loud, a few barks during the day but nothing more then I wouldn't hear in other area.

Not quiet, not paradise.

I want to be honest here. I wanted to love this place based on the ad. It was our first visit to Costa Rica. This house only has airconditioning in the small bedrooms, not in the house, as it implies. The rest of the house was like an oven. After three nights of not sleeping, due to the neighbor dogs barking, I became very sick with a cold and migraine headache. Vivian said she couldn't do anything about the dogs but I spoke to a neighbor about the barking and she said it is an ongoing problem. Also one of the AC units was broken. Even though Vivian refunded the remaining days to our account, I spent our last eight days in Costa Rica sick and mostly in bed. It ruined our vacation.

Owner's Response: This is the first time we have ever received a review like this. It's so unfortunate you came away from this vacation feeling the way you do. Yes, our home has air conditioning in all three bedrooms and not in the living room and kitchen and I'm sorry that you misunderstood that. Yes, it's very hot in Costa Rica, you are right off the equator. I emailed you several times explaining that I had no control over a barking dog visiting the area. Rebecca, our employee, had spoken to the owner who said she was leaving, so the problem was solved the day you and your husband left our home. I also understand as well that the sound of birds were disturbing you and of course I have no control over that. I also understand that one of the air conditioners wasn't functioning, but there were two other bedrooms where the air conditioners worked that you could make use of. We knew that it would take a whole day to install a new air conditioner and didn't want to disrupt your vacation. I am very sorry that you caught a cold and were sick there, but that also was not under my control. We were kind enough to refund your money, although that was not anything that we were obligated to do, we did it so that you and your husband and ourselves could have peace. I hope where you found to stay after leaving us was a better fit for both of you.

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent a week at Tesoro Escondido- truly a Hidden Treasure! It was a quick walk to EVERYTHING! Very nice to be off of the main strip, but close to everything. The local bakery was a favorite for our three teenagers. The house has everything you can imagine needing from beach towels to a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked with all serving and cooking wares and small appliances- LOVED the gas stove with 6 burners! Vivian was quick to answer all of our questions and Rebecca, the local manager was absolutely wonderful. The house is beautifully maintained, we very much enjoyed the pool and cabana every morning and night. I took more pictures of the gorgeous flowers and the yard than the kids! Book it for your own - you will not be disappointed.
