Sunsets to die for!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Located on the southern beach of Jaco. This condo is modern and quiet. Has everything you need for your home away from home. King size bed with memory foam mattress , so comfy. Set of twin beds if company comes to visit. We had a sloth and Tucans in our tree behind the condo. Lapas flying by daily and iguanas sunning near by. The ocean temp was 85 degrees and a smooth sand beach, other Jaco beaches were very rocky. We enjoyed the many great restaurants about 15 min walk to town or a $2.00 taxi ride. Manuel Antonia national park only one hour away, lots of monkeys and birds, gorgeous beach there. Ingrid and Juan Carlos are great managers at Paloma Blanca and took very good care of us . Security is the best, we will miss Vidal. A lovely place with many great folks that became good friends. Miss you all.

Simply fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is conveniently located on the ground floor with no stairs or elevator to deal with. You look out on to the main pool and waterfall, with the beach steps outside the gated complex. This is a treasure!

Right on Jaco Beach and close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 weeks and loved the area, the condo and the people so much that we are coming back next year.

The ocean water temperature was in the mid 80's. The weather was perfect.... not a drop of rain the whole time.... just sunny skies. We had quiet, restful evenings and adventurous days.

The property is well maintained with 4 swimming pools. What you see in the photos is what you get!

Marilynne's condo has everything you might need.

Very Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo over Christmas this year. The condo and overall property were as shown in the photos and the property manager and staff were extremely helpful during our stay. The beach is easily accessible and this condo is in an area of the beach that is not rocky. We rented boogie boards from a vendor located right outside of the condo complex beach access gate. We also walked to the local market and to a nearby trail with a great overlook of Jaco beach. Although the center of Jaco is within walking distance, we usually had a cab pick us up at the condo gate and it was a $2 ride into town. The staff at La Paloma Blanca were helpful in booking activities/tours for us and it was not necessary to have a car while there. We enjoyed Manuel Antonio National Park, ziplining, a crocodile tour and an extreme waterfall tour as well as swimming in the pool and in the ocean. We also attended a weekly surfing competition at a local establishment. Great family vacation.

WOW! What a special spot!

  • 5 of 5

My apologies for being a tad late in writing this review. Now is the time folks are contemplating the winter (burr) and heading south. I stayed at Marilynne's condo for 5 weeks in March and part of April. I became part of a family of visitors who go each year. I met the most interesting and fun bunch of people anyone could ever hope to meet. The accommodations are exceptional, the grounds superb and the staff are wonderful. I would go back in a heartbeat. Even had a pet iguana for a few days who loved the fruit I put outside for him/her! To get groceries, $2 USD gets you to the main grocery store (which has everything you would need plus more!), and you can walk...but in the heat, you don't want anything to spoil! Cabs are everywhere, and there is even a Wal-Mart if you feel the need to shop more! A fish monger comes on Thursdays, with all the fresh fish you would ever want. Not that great with English, but somehow everyone understands each other! The restaurants are awesome. Didn't have a meal that I didn't like! Explored all around. The staff are more than willing to help you book any excursion, and often offering a discount that you won't get if you book yourself. Car rentals are super cheap....but book on-line! Learned that from one of the seasonal renters! Way cheaper. Roads are great, and drivers are better than some cities I have been in! Beach is totally awesome. Beginner surfers are in this area....and it is hilarious to watch them. Swim out, wait and wait for the perfect wave, get on your board, fall off and repeat! There's even an abandoned "resort" up in the hills that you can walk to. The start of the trail is only 4 mins from the condo! I felt totally safe the entire time I was there. At the condo, in town, on an excursion. Recommend this rental to anyone!!!

Beautiful condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a very modern condo on the first floor, close to everything. The king size bed is amazing and the kitchen well stocked for cooking. There are 3 pools and great views of the beach, which is a great surfing beach in Jaco. The grounds are very tropical and the staff and guards on the property are very friendly and helpful. There is a surf camp right in front of the resort on the beach and they make it easy for anyone to learn to surf, what fun !

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is terrific! Walking distance to town. It sits pool side

And is well appointed. We were very comfortable and had a great time. The

Complex sits steps away from the beach.

My grandsons preferred being on the beach most of the time😆 family vacation and no one wanted to leave. Would definitely return.

La Paloma Blanca: La Paloma Blanca sits on a prime beachfront estate on the south end of Jaco Beach. Widely considered the most pristine part of the beach, this location is ideal for learning to surf, watching bird life and getting away from it all. And since you're only a 10-minute walk from town, you can still enjoy all the action and attractions of downtown Jaco. Learn how to surf on the acclaimed beach break in your front yard, plan a round of golf at the nearby Los Suenos resort, arrange a birding tour of neighboring Carara National Park, romp through the jungle with an ATV tour or fly through the rain forest canopy with zip-line excursion, the quintessential Costa Rica experience. Less active guests will love the seaside swimming pools and tranquil beach.

Jaco Beach, Costa RIca: The closest beach resort to the capital city of San Jose, Jaco Beach nestles between the Pacific Ocean and the tropical rain forests of the central Pacific coast. Nothing beats Jaco’s central location,
