I fell in love with Costa Rica 10 years ago, and found Jaco Beach, which was a sleepy little surf town back then. Jaco was close to the airport and one of the only beachfront municipalities with TITLED land for purchase. I have watched Jaco grow as a tourist town, and have become active in the community, sharing and learning from the pura vida culture. It's a great place to vacation, and a great place to live. I love the pure air, the fresh produce, the active and adventurous lifestyle of like minded people who are living their dream of a healthier, simpler and ultimately happier life. Try it, you make decide to stay.
Faith purchased this condo in 2006
Great Location, quiet side of town, walk to everything, nothing between you and the Pacific Ocean except sand...The Palms is a unique condo in that we have total seclusion or total resort immersion when we choose. Best of both worlds.
Use of Crocs Resort amenities next door .
Really terrific roof top deck made this condo unique. This is a front building, that is ON THE SAND. Cant get any better than that if you love the beach and surfing. We didn't rent a car, and ended up happy we saved the money. From Bahia Azul, you can walk or take a taxi to anywhere in town for $2. Easy to get around, people were very friendly, and with Faith's list of recommended restaurants we had some good meals at reasonable prices, Don't miss Tsunami Sushi half price sushi on Wednesday night! Good deal!
Very casual, relaxed vacation. This was our first trip to Costa Rica, but we will return now that we know how chill it is.
Sorry it has taken me so long to review. Now we are booking again for next year to make sure we get our favorite condo at Bahia Azul. We love this penthouse because we have full unobstructed ocean views and breezes that sweep through the condo, right off the ocean. The roof top deck is a huge bonus as we travel with teenagers. The condo is very well kept with full kitchen, laundry room and comfy beds in both bedrooms. Sheets, towels, beach towels all provided. We like it because we can walk to town and restaurants and its in a residential area that is quiet and friendly. The farmer's market is just behind the property , great for fresh organics, cheeses, baked goods and all kind of local crafts. As an amateur photographer, the local vendors were fantastic to capture . I wish there was a gas grill on property as we like our fresh catch , but Faith did lend us a small charcoal grill that worked ok.
We are booked for 2017 , cant wait.
We stayed at 2 of Faith's properties in Jaco Beach, and loved both. Bahia Azul is a surfer's dream. This penthouse has a roof top deck that makes every care in my world disappear. Unlike several of the other's we looked at on VRBO , this one is the FRONT building, nothing between you and the sand... I read the review before and wonder if the woman actually stayed in this condo? We thought it was cute, clean, nicely furnished and no problems with anything being worn out. Linens, towels, bedding all in good condition and a fully equipped kitchen for our family of 4. My wife and kids loved the huge pool and kiddie pool. I surfed right out front when we had the waves. Other times, the surf was perfect for family swimming. Definitely recommend this condo for our family and friends. We rented a car, but realized it was not necessary in Jaco. Faith is really on the ball, and was there in 10 minutes when my daughter needed floaties and was a huge source of info for what we wanted to see and do on our vacation.
The view is wonderful from the balconies and upstairs patio but unfortunately inside the condo was less than great. It was very much in need of updating! The appliances and linens were very used! The photos we saw did not show this condo! There was also no grille as advertised. We did enjoy the pool, grounds, location and security staff. The management staff were helpful. We did have fun in Jaco!
The roof top deck was my favorite feature of this fabulous penthouse. I used it for morning yoga, sunset cocktails, private dinners and a "house call" professional massage. Unobstructed stargazing from our private rooftop was amazing because we could hear the sounds of the ocean, too. I just loved the whole experience. Faith, the manager, was resourceful, knowledgable, and made herself available to answer all our questions, timely. I did not know the rare Macaws were going to visit the nearby almond trees every day around 4 PM. From the wild! I almost thought they were let out of a cage, they were so timely. An unexpected bonus to see the Macaws up close in the trees and during their "fly-by's"!
We just returned from our 4th trip to Jaco, and tried another condo on the beach at Bahia Azul. We were very happy with the beachfront location, and received a great owners discount on VRBO through Faith, who is the on site manager. We had some initial check in problems with the front desk people who don't speak much English, but after they called Faith, she smoothed out their confusion and met us at the condo to answer all our questions. The folks that live at Bahia Azul treated us like family, and we had a great time . I really recommend this condo if you like to be on the beach, and also have a huge pool. We plan to come back with our friends, and share the 2 bedroom this winter.
We were very pleased with our stay in Jaco. I little hiccup the first night but the rental company made the transition as smooth as possible and we got to see another area of the beach. Our condo for six nights was all we could have asked for. The views were spectacular and the rental agent, Faith very helpful. She even loaned us some martini glasses which we couldn't find in stores in the near town. Bahia Azul is a very nice and friendly complex and we will stay there again - but need to get the private rooftop deck. Very relaxing up there. Jinny & AB Southall
