You can check their website for more photos as well, OceansBahiaEncantada.

This is a quiet part of Jaco, more secluded than the in-town hotels, but close enough to easily walk for food and fun. There are three large swimming pools.

Bahia Encantada is a resort-like condominium community near the edge of town on the north end of Jaco Beach. Steps from the sand and a short walk from town. The fully equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counters and elegant wood cabinetry. The living spaces boast modern architectural detailing and central air-conditioning. In-suite amenities include plush furnishings, tasteful décor, flat-screen televisions, luxurious bed linens and an in-unit laundry room with full-size washer/dryer. Cable TV and WiFi access is included as well as free local and US telephone service.

Bahia Encantada offers incredible ocean views over a series of infinity pools from what is widely considered Jaco's most beautiful beachfront estate. It is sometimes called 'Oceans Bahia Encantada.'

There is a lot to do all around Jaco, it is a great place to relax and do nothing... or if you like, a great starting point for all kinds of adventures in Costa Rica.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

The condo is the closest bottom unit to the beach and the pool. We liked being able to walk out side door patio straight to the pool. You can easily refill drinks or use the bathroom in this condo unit. Other guests were jealous of our ease to our unit (A1) from the pool. Quick one mile drive (or taxi) to down town Jaco or you can walk along the beach and get to several of the hot spots that overlook the ocean. Gary was very helpful meeting us at the unit and even helped carry our groceiries in. He gave us his contact info for any needs that he could help with such as tours or car rental. Other than givning us contact information he never pressure or bothered us. Definitely would go back !

Loved our stay in this condo

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation to Costa Rica was amazing. The drive from San Jose through the mountains to Jaco was beautiful.

In February, however, the weather is hot, hot, hot, and humid. Being on the ocean, and in the pool was the best place to be.

Our condo was perfect. We travelled with our daughter, her husband and their 3 month old, the location on the main floor, poolside and ocean front was perfect. The baby could be sleeping, and we could enjoy swimming in the pool and monitor him easily. Many in the condo unit envied our location for its privacy.

We would highly recommend Gary's condo A1, and we will hopefully return on a future vacation.

Awesome condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

Condo pictures and description were as advertised. Very clean, beds were comfortable and access to the pool and beach were very convenient with no stairs to climb. Claritas and the new Crocs casino were both really convenient. 5th we rented on Jaco beach and will return for sure. Gary was quick to respond to all correspondence.

Best location in Jaco

  • 4 of 5

Of all the condo complexes in Jaco Beach, this seems to be the best on many levels. Clearly, Jaco has seen better days. Nicely furnished, roomy and perfectly located unit in a well secured complex. Great pool and beach! Gary was very helpful in arranging transportation for us as we had no car. Beautiful sunsets every evening and a nice bar and restaurant, Claritas, right on the beach next door. We walked into Jaco for groceries (suggest Mas o Menos) and took a cab back for $2. There are many restaurants in Jaco but we only tried one, El Recreo, and it was very good. They had the coldest Imperial Cerveza in town as well as delicious Sea Bass and local Costa Rican food. Gary provides an assortment of pool and beach floats and chairs.There is no stocked bar or bartender at the swim-up bar but guests are welcome to use it along with the charcoal grill. We had a lovely, laid-back week!

Spectacular Sunset Views

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 3 with our 20 year old son. We enjoyed our stay, location was perfect for just hanging out or going off to explore Costa Rica.

Pros: The place was well equipped and probably the best located unit in the complex. Spectacular Sunsets everynight! Gary very welcoming and responsive. Walking distance to town if you don't have a car is definitely doable. Don't discount the restaurants close to complex. Clarita's is in a great location on the beach serving food and drinks. Soda Raquels is steps away towards town. They don't serve alcohol but also don't mind if you bring your own. Jaco is an interesting town. Different feel on the weekends than during the week. A little craziness comes out on the weekends.

Cons: Beds and pillows a little dated; ready for my own bed by the end of the week. Coffee maker took forever to brew a pot of coffee. Hot water runs out pretty quickly when showering. Advise taking a navy shower. It's not terrible since you are in Costa Rica.

Rent car from Gary if he offers. Renting from Car Rental Agencies a bit of a rip off. You will pay $10/day for GPS which you definitely need. You will also pay an extra $15/day for insurance unless you can prove that your credit card covers you. (bring proof if you can) Then they will hold $2,000 USD as a deposit anyway in case of an accident.

We split our time exploring and just hanging out for the perfect vacation. We would definitely recommend staying here!
