Barrio Los Villalobos Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Rent for 6 nights, and stay for 7 (except some holidays). This is the front 1st floor unit at Bahia Encantada, Jaco Beach. Bahia Encantada is new, clean and gorgeous. It is steps from the pool and without any other condos between you and the beach. A nice patio overlooking the beach is perfect for outdoor lunches or dinners. This condo has the best location at Bahia Encantada!

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.

About Gary

Let me know if you have any questions or would like any more photos of the property! Thanks for looking!

Gary purchased this condo in 2008

Why Gary chose Jaco

Bahia Encantada is on a quiet beach on the North Side of Jaco. It is quiet, but just a few minutes walk from lots of restaurants and activities. There is so much to do all around the area, from gorgeous national parks, to spas, to adventurous outdoor activities. The beach is great. The sunsets are the best in the world!!!

What makes this condo unique

Sunsets! Friendly staff! Friendly owners and guests! Swim-up bar! Huge Swimming pool! Activities galore! Lunches on the beach-front patio! A gorgeous luxury interior! Days of relaxing, reading, and adventure! Step off your patio onto the beach!

Fabulous time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Gary and family were amazing hosts. Not only was this beach front property exactly as described it was truly the best spot on Jaco beach. The condo was well stocked we didn't need anything else. Gary was able to arrange all of our excursions at much less than average price and personal transportation to each. He worked hard to make sure our stay was relaxing and enjoyable.

We had an amazing time in Costa Rica mostly due to our luxurious accommodations and gracious hosts. Thank you Gary and Deanne, Pura Vida!

Great Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice condo with a excellent location. I'm not sure you can do better than this in Jaco. This condo has everything you need to a successful, fun filled vacation. The pool is mere steps away from the back door and the beach is just about 200 yards away. You can wake up every morning to the sounds of waves crashing on the beach. A small bar and restaurant is located just outside the compound if you want a quick bite to eat or beverage. If you want more than that, getting to the center of town is easily accomplished either by taxi (~1000 colones) or by walking. The amenities within the condo are more that adequate. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms in good shape, a capable kitchen and a washer and dryer. Overall, the condo was in great shape. We stayed as a family of 5 comfortably.

Owner's Response: Thank you Melanie and family for your 5 star review. We appreciate your business, and we are glad you had a great time. I want to make a clarification about the beach. The beach sand starts just 10 feet outside of our condo door. I don't believe there is a closer condo in Jaco to the beach then this one. The ocean water area where usually hide tide stops is 200 meters away. This is a great wide beach, that is 2 and 1/2 miles long. Great for long beach walks. All the best.

Loved just about everything

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place... great location (end of town and next to Casino), beautiful accommodation (balcony views of ocean, jungle and wildlife) , very comfortable at a good price. Perhaps the best feature of this place was our hosts Stephanie and John. Stephanie is extremely nice and accommodating which made our stay in Jaco even more enjoyable. Her recommendations for food and tours were 100% spot on.

The only thing we didn't like were the rooster crowing throughout the night (Costa Rican roosters can't tell time) and the karaoke bar that goes all night. Stephanie left ear plugs which definitely helped.

But overall this is a great place and you won't be disappointed. I'll be back.

Owner's Response: This guest has the wrong property, and did not stay at our condo. I have never heard a rooster crowing from our condo. Our condo is beach front (8 feet from the sand) , and ground level.

Perfect retreat from a hectic life!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Costa Rica and had never reserved a property from a private owner before. Simply put this condo did not disappoint! Gary was so great to work with us and even took a hit when we cut our reservation short in order to get married while we were there. He let us change our reservation with short notice and even worked a more than fair deal out with us. I feel this condo is the best in the complex and is truly beachfront. We will be back and look forward to staying at Gary's next time!
