For those hotter days the energy efficient air conditioning works fast and individual room controls keeps everyone happy.

The master bedroom has private access to the balcony and private full bath. The large guest bedroom has classic picture frame mountain views and shares its full bath with the rest of the living area. The guest bedroom includes two twin beds that can be merged into a double size bed as needed. For additional guest, up to 5 total, other bedding is provided by air mattress or outside sofa sleeping.

From almost any major airport in the US you can book a non stop flight to San Jose, Costa Rica and take reliable shuttle service from there to Jaco. Be in the condo and on the Pacific Ocean in 4-7 hours, depending on your point of origin. From Atlanta on Delta we are oceanfront in 5 hours!!

About Amy Shumate or Butch Register

Seeking eco lifestyle and adventure get away i ventured into Costa Rica and found my retirement transitional home away from home. I am willing to share it with you and will negotiate at every opportunity to get you in. Your interest and final stay in my place affords me a chance to come more often, defray some of my ownership costs, and hopefully make a few friends along the way!!

Amy Shumate or Butch Register purchased this condo in 2010

Why Amy Shumate or Butch Register chose Jaco

Enjoy tropical paradise in its most powerful natural splendor! Jaco is an easy 1500 ' walk south but our northern beachfront is different in its natural setting and the rocks in the surfzone are obvious eye candy. But on the broader comparisons we have better SAND!! This is due to predominant ocean currents distributing lighter sediments and finer sands on the north end. The resultant larger tide transition beach gives us a better walking and activities base experience at low or high tide. There is also a large river and lagoon to the north, viewable in some of the pictures. The 7 foot tide change twice a day reveals dynamic natural hydrologic patterns and associated forage by waterfowl, wildlife and fisheries in the lagoon and adjacent mountain jungles.

What makes this condo unique

We are located at the quiet north end, and now our new neighbor, Crocs is providing quality retail shops and 5 star restaurant options with a share in their world class pool center. Things are looking up with Crocs as our amenity center next door, and getting louder next door if thats what you want - but come home to The Palms!

Great Condo with wonderful ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed March 2-15, 2016 and loved the condo. The beds were comfortable, the condo was clean but our favorite was the ocean and beach views from the balcony. Sunsets were amazing. Its location next to Croc's and access to their pools and amenities is a huge plus. We spent many afternoons in the Croc pools trying to escape the afternoon heat. The beach is too hot during the day to walk on without shoes or sandals. The waves can be large and there are significant rip tides making ocean swimming a bit hazardous unless you are ocean experienced and a good swimmer. Butch, the owner, was extremely helpful and willing to talk personally and give information on the area. We rented a pair of bicycles from Butch which we loved and went for rides every morning to include buying fresh bread from a downtown bakery. Ask Butch if they are available to rent during your stay.

We did book an excursion through Lost Beach (property managers) and had an overall good experience with what little interaction we had with them. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again if we returned to the area.

Owner's Response: Rob, the changes in policy and protocol with all relevant entities made the prep forbthisvtrop a bit tricky for both of us. I got the deposits back to Jerry so no problems there. Your words are correct for Marvh, especially this year. Very warm indeed. It's the off brown color of the sand that makes it to hot. But the color has nothing to do with the 98' temperature. Just flat out hot. But that's what the pool is for and a fruity over drink. Please do consider staying in the area in the rainy season. Meaning like Florida rain. Every afternoon. What's wrong with that as long as 6-8 is a good time to go eat and if on the beach start gaining mojo to find he Ac rooms. You all are friends and welcome anytime. One night free next trip. And I may have found your shoes. Let me know if you are missing those and I will main them from Atlanta.

Best Trip of My Life

  • 5 of 5

I would be doing everyone a disservice if I did not mention how amazing the owner is, and how helpful he was during our trip. We arrived late due to delays and typical travel trouble. The owner actually greeted us and helped us get our bearings. He even gave us his number and said if you want to grab a sandwich tomorrow after you get settled he would give us the "local" rundown. It was so amazing to have someone share the local knowledge of the place with us. The place speaks for itself...these pictures are not telling a lie. This is not a place where you show up and are disappointed. The accommodations are very comfortable. (even to American creature comforts which is tough to find when traveling)

I will be making another trip to Costa Rica and staying here without question. It is nice to know when you travel your accommodations will be comfortable and in an amazing location. If anyone is considering this destination as an option this is the one to choose.

On the BEACH in Jaco, Great View, Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this condo at The Palms in Jaco are great, but the actual condo itself is even better. The condo complex is located at the north end of Jaco Beach, so you are close enough to walk or take a short taxi ride to all of the shops and restaurants of Jaco Beach, but you are far enough away from it all to have a quiet place to relax and chill. The south facing view is spectacular and the large balcony is a great spot for sipping a cool beverage as the sun sets. All of the rooms are large with lots of floor space. The king-sized bed in the Master is extremely comfortable, and the dual twins in the 2nd bedroom were perfect for our two teen-aged boys. A great benefit of staying at The Palms is the Crocs Casino next door, which has a large resort-style pool with a pool-side grill and bar. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach without getting sand on your toes.

PERFECT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus our teenage granddaughter, stayed in this condo on the 6th floor and what a great decision we made! The photos are true and the balcony also has a couch

which my husband took all his naps there! There is a wood dining table plus a high round bar table with stools. We could live on the balcony with the beautiful views of the beach. Hearing the waves was so peaceful. We never wanted to leave it. Having an end unit we also had the side view of the balcony that had a view of the full beach! This unit is special with front view from kitchen window and high side windows which makes it light and bright in the living room. TV's in both bedrooms, Washer and Dryer in unit, fully equiped kitchen, two bathrooms for each bedroom with rain shower heads in both. There is an elevator right by the front door and a security guard at the gate entrance. The Palms is right next door to the new Croc's Hotel with a nice size casino, full bar by their pools and other amenities that are shared with the Palms.

You don't even have to go outside your complex to get there. Just a walkway from your parking area over to their pools. They will give you towels there also. The palms also has a pool you can see from your balcony. I was lucky enough to see two parrots fly right by the balcony which was beautiful! Jaco has a lot of restaurants to chose from and we truly enjoyed our stay in Butch's spacious condo. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit. I feel like I made a new friend from phone conversations with the owner. The management company is very helpful also. One day we had a tour bus pick us up and we took a catamaran for the day to Tortugua island. I recommend this side trip and Butch's condo- either one, you won't be sorry.

Beautiful location, I don't think you can find better...

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there with wife and kids, next to Crocks Casino. Jako is a cool place, safe and beautiful. The people there are polite and the food is amazing. The condo is amazing, with 24/7 security, on the 6th floor, on the beach. Spacious and comfortable, it's like home. The owner is polite and respectful. I would definitely recommend it.
