About Faith

I came to Costa Rica in the early 2000's in search of a relaxed, affordable place to bask in the sunshine. I purchased my first condo in 2006, and have recently settled here full time. I love it! I live here in Jaco Beach, and own and manage several condos. I like to match our guests with the best vacation spot at the best rates in town, direct from the owners.

Faith purchased this condo in 2010

Why Faith chose Puntarenas

The Palms is the best property on Jaco beach. It's clean, minimalist design and contemporary feel suits me, a midst the tropical foliage and exotic backdrop. Now, with Crocs Resort next door, you can have as much or as little civilization as you want on yor vacation.

What makes this condo unique

Pool, Restaurants, Spa, Casino, Activities all in walking distance, BUT the beach is much quieter than south Jaco Beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Bahia Encantada for a week this month, and were very happy. 2 teenagers and my elderly Mom, and everyone was happy. The boys surfed in front of the condo and made some local friends in town. My Mom , wife and I enjoyed peaceful sunsets on he balcony and some great dinners in town that Faith recommended. We followed her suggestions and enjoyed some local discounts. I enjoyed being next door to Clarita's Sports bar for my games and my wife and Mom tried Aqua Spa for a little pampering. We caught 4 Marlin and a ton of tuna , and had Claritas grill the tuna for us. Great location, close to everything and a beautiful beach in front . Good value . We will return . Thanks Fath!

Beautiful condo with amazing ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

Faith's condo is spacious , beautiful, and has a large balcony with amazing ocean views.

Great location is just a short walk to many shops and restaurants or you can take a quick cab for a few dollars.

Faith provided us with a great list of recommended restaurants , shopping, and activities. And was quick to repond to any questions we had.

Her recommended driver, Dan, was at the airport to promptly whisk us off to our condo. He also provided us transportation for our day trip to Manuel Antonio Park. Dan is very nice and gave us great information along the way.

We really enjoyed Crocs casino pool. Staff is always ready to bring you a cocktail or food while you relax at the pool.

The staff at the palms is very friendly and helpful as well.

Can't wait to return !

Great time in Jaco!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Jaco this winter. Our unit at the Palms (901) was spacious and had fabulous views of the sunset. We spent most of our time in the pool, but found plenty to do with our kids in town. What a great vacation!

Second stay, even better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at The Palms. It is a beautiful and fully equipped condo with what has to be the best beach view in Jaco. There is a new resort right next door with restaurants, a beautiful casino and an outdoor pool side bar, all of which guests of The Palms have full access too. There is also a new beach walk way that runs along the beach making for a nice walk to newby restaurants. Each night we watched the sunset from the large lanai sipping wine. Amazing. The condo, location, and Jaco offer the best of Costa Rica. From there you can zip line, nature hike, pool, beach, ATV, horse back ride, spa, anything you want! Faith was very helpful is connecting us with airport transportation and excursions etc. plus she met us at the condo to be sure everything was just right upon our arrival. Thank you Faith! We will definately be back to stay here again soon!

Spacious Condo on the Best Part of Jaco Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first time to Costa Rica, but I was a little apprehensive about where to base ourselves for 10 days to do everything that the family had on their list. This location, and this lovely spacious three bedroom worked out really well for us. My kids wanted to Zip Line , ATV, Horseback ride and learn to surf. My husband and son in law wanted to fish and play golf, and I honestly just needed a relaxing beach vacation . Per Faith's pre arrival recommendations, I booked a massage and mani pedi at Acqua Spa and spent most of my afternoons under an umbrella at the resort pool sipping margaritas. Best of both of both worlds. You can walk to several beach front bars and restaurants from the condo for sunset, and we tried several of the recommended restaurants in town that we loved. Although this condo is very modern, you are still very close to the " real Costa Rica" with small rustic restaurants and mountain adventures. We did NOT rent a car, and used a driver to take us on a couple day trips to Tres Piscinas waterfalls and Manuel Antonio, lunch at Avion. I liked having a full kitchen for my breakfast and lunches, and we had a couple dinners delivered in as well. We are booked for next year, and hope to buy our own condo soon. Thanks Faith!

Owner's Response: Jacki, I miss our margarita sunsets on the balcony! Your family was a lot of fun , the best kind of group that is independent and off to the next adventure, and no judging for those who want to just relax and stare at the Pacific Ocean and read a good book. I will keep you posted on great condo deals down here during Green Season. It would be great to have you as a neighbor. Best, Faith in Jaco Beach

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

Ok, we haven't stayed everywhere in Jaco yet, but this condo, has surreal views that must be the best in Jaco. We had a group stay for my sister's 50th and really had a great time. We loved having the Resort next door to use the pool bar , restaurants and we had a ball one night in the disco with ladies night free drinks. The condo was spacious for the 6 of us, and we actually did end up cooking more than we thought we would. Great to have the kitchen and the laundry available, as it was really HOT and sweaty on our day trips. We used Dan Jenkins to drive us to the Monkey Mangrove Tour and see the Faith' s 727 Fuselage Home in Manuel Antonio. That was wild! . Fun guy, very patient with 6 drunk women. Faith was a great host, helped us plan a Spa Day surprise and gave us the inside scoop on where to go . We want to come back... would definitely stay here again.

Great views of the beach and sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place. It's at the quieter end of the beach but walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. Plus I think the beach is better at this end, nice and sandy whereas closer towards Jaco it gets a bit rougher, more gravel. The apartment was very nice, big balcony. It has everything you need for a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Ann, you are so right, our quiet North Beach is much more picturesque than the other end of Jaco. The quiet , undeveloped cove where the estuary is located is a scene from paradise especially at low tide where we can explore the adjacent Monkey Beach. Glad you enjoyed your vacation at The Palms. Come back soon!
