About the property

3 Fantastic Bedrooms, 2 Great Baths, air mattress with electric pump

A beautiful 60 minute ride in from San Jose International Airport along the new and scenic highway or a 90 minute breath taking ride down the 'recently' old (only since highway) mountain road and you arrive at the privat gated entrance to Tres Regalos Beachfront Condominium Resort. After a long day of traveling the highway works well for most but keep in mind that the mountain Road is well worth the ride to many. The gates are opened and you enter the jungle style laid brick paver parking area and all its beautiful flowers. You walk between the two buildings passing the Bodega and you are at the pool with the Pacific Ocean only steps away. You ride the elevator to the third floor and open your condo and walk into a beautiful impeccably decorated airconditioned 3-bedroom master peice. Walk stright into the living room and look out over the balcony directly at the Pacific Ocean in front of you, the pool directly below you and the Mountains, Rain Forest and River off to your right.

Incredible: The 3rd floor balcony boasts a bamboo bar with stools as well as a large table and chairs for your enjoyment including viewing of the most incredible sunsets you will ever experience almost believing that the ocean is on fire as the sun drops directly in front of you into the Pacific. As you sit on the balcony with the Ocean in front of you and the mountains and rainforest to your right as well as a fresh water river flowing from the rainforest into the ocean you are completely surrounded by nature.

The moon keeps the ocean in full view at night and the sounds of the waves unfolding on the beach is all you will hear making for a fantastic nights sleep. Arise early in the morning to catch the remaining moments of the moon and watch the fisherman heading out for the day in their boats while enjoying the worlds best and most incredible coffee.

Tours and Trips: Any and all tours can be booked through the front office including World Class Fishing through our partnerships with some of the best boats and captians in Costa Rica! Groceries can be purchased on your behalf and awaiting your arrival. Taxi service to and from your front door through our trusted and knowledgeble English speaking drivers. Courier Services via our incredible onsite, friendliest staff on the beach. Including assistance with all your needs. Ask Paulo at the front gate for a surfing lesson - he is a great surfer, a good friend and an awesome teacher. Baby sitting services can be arranged through our trusted staff as well. This will be done in your condo if so desired and the girls are great. Usually our manager Mario's wife can and will assist you here shall you desire a dinner out without the kids.

Eating and drinking: Lists and Lists of Restuarants await your arrival. From the inexpensive 'typico' Costa Rican family style family run establishments to the 5 star 'dress me up and take me out' more expensive type and everything in between. The food is great at most and there are some hidden secrets so please ask as you will be absolutley delighted at where and what you can enjoy for food. The local grocery stores all sell fresh and wonderful food including some great never been seen before local fruits including incredible watermelon, fresh Plantain and bananas, and everything else you could imagine. The local Jaco Farmers Market is even better as the vegetables and fruits line the street for blocks and is simply great. From local fresh water mountain river shrimp, which come in about the size of a small lobster to the worlds best ceviche and most incredible coffee you have ever had you will be amazed. Sit on the balcony and wait for the sunset - NUTS!! Watch the lightning storms over the ocean later.

About Don Gilbride

Born and raised in Massachusetts and now raising two kids, two Boxers, two Cats, and running an electrical contracting firm here in the very same state. I have a absolutely beautiful wife named Denise I can't imagine life without and some day we hope to spend a lot more time here ourselves. We have been many places but coming home typically means we are heading to Costa Rica to our incredible condo on the beach here in Jaco.

Don Gilbride purchased this condo in 2009

Why Don Gilbride chose Jaco

We spent lots of time looking and more time visiting many properties before buying here. The site was just a lot of land at the time and the location sold us. The plans for the facility and renderings showing what was finally built and now our home away from home showed a perfectly matched facility that simple fits in with its surroundings. We love our condo and we are positive you will as well!

What makes this condo unique

The Mediterranean style of our facility has beach front written all over it. Our pool area and grounds are gorgeous. We are so close to everything, centrally located so as to give the best opportunity to see as much as possible yet we are unique and in our own little section at the end within only a 100 ft of the mountains with incredible scenery from all sides. A secluded beach tucked in behind a recess in the mountains only feet away with allow ability to walk along the rocks and to a waterfall that flows down from the hills and drops down on top of you. A great pool bar with stools you can sit on while in the pool, grilling area, outside shower, hot tub and so much more. You will be glad you came and the worst part will be having to eventually leave. You will be back and always miss the feeling this facility and our home will give to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Sorry for taking so long to respond to your email, things have been very busy since returning from our vacation in Costa Rica.

We did have a wonderful holiday and enjoyed staying as Tres Regalos very much. Your condo is a perfect size for 6 people, very comfortable, and tastefully furnished.

We loved the pool and the staff were all excellent. Other residents we met were also very friendly and helpful. We did enjoy getting to know Leo and he was extremely helpful with his recommendations. We loved sitting out on the balcony in the evening. Walking and running on beach, watching the surfers and playing in the waves was great fun too.

D'Mario's was a friendly little place to go and Mario helped us get a Tres Leches cake for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and it was delicious. We went to the Villa Caletas to celebrate my parents anniversary, enjoyed a fabulous sunset before a wonderful and special dinner.

We rented 2 bikes for $40 each so that we could go to store easily and we were glad we did this as it was good exercise too!

We really enjoyed the local zip lining and had a good trip to Manuel Antonio National Park. It was a bit busy and although we did see animals / birds they were some distance away and / or sleeping. We had been to an animal rescue near San Jose and were spoiled with close up encounters with two/three toes Sloths, Monkey's, a Porcupine, Macaws, owls and Toucans. We enjoyed the swimming at the beach in the park and had an excellent lunch after the tour.

Thank you for all of your help and recommendations.

average rating of 4.931818 based on 47 reviews

We all loved the property and its wonderful location. We highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

The complex is situated right beside the expensive 'Croc's Resort'. In many ways, we preferred this complex to Croc's since it is much much quieter. The pool is wonderful...we spent many hours chilling on the terrific chairs. The complex is on the beach, so we would go from the pool to the ocean and back again. The beach is huge and very clean. The ocean was wonderful....and had great waves to surf or body-surf.

The condo itself was perfect. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We used the laundry machines on several occasions. We mostly hung out in the living room and well as the lovely balcony. The view of the pool and beach was fabulous...and the sunsets are nothing less than spectacular.

The condo has WiFi throughout, though we couldn't get wifi in one of the rooms. This was truly a tiny inconvenience.

All in all, this was a terrific home away from home in Costa Rica. We loved it and would do it again.

Wonderful beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo was actually bigger than we thought it would be. Nicely furnished and very comfy beds. Ended up renting a car for our 9 day stay - it was a bit further into town than we had anticipated. Overall was a great place to stay!

New York City

The perfect Jaco Stay

  • 5 of 5

I must say, i was initially apprehensive of booking this wonderful place. The owners Don and Denise were/are super helpful that, as a New Yorker i was hesitant (I mean we are just are not used to people who are both nice and extremely helpful). After my booking Both Don and Denise constantly reached out to suggest activities, places to visit and anything helpful that they thought we ought to know, they really do go above and beyond to ensure your comfort.

Upon arriving, i instantly fell at home, the place is well furnished and stocked (i mean FULLY stocked) with linens and towels, to run out of them would mean you change linen twice a day or something.

The 3 bedroom condo is very spacious, THAT you do not see from the pictures. We had a group of 7 with some over night crashers (had some friends who were at the best western down the street), one of the nights we all ended up crashing and we did not feel one bit cluttered.

Security, maintenance workers and cleaners were all friendly and helpful (The whole city of Jaco is like that) but, these staffers went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable(they also know what bars to go on any given night which was a plus). We had a BBQ on our last night there, and the security on duty did an amazing job setting up the place for us (cleaning the grill before and after) setting up the propane gas, trash can etc.

All in all, i would recommend this place again and plan to visit Jaco (I fell in love, the sunsets are beyond words) and will most definitely be staying at this place.

I will say that the Crocs casino which is next door had their grand opening the night we got there and though there is some noise from the music, the levels weren't any bother at all. The Casino General Manager lives in this complex also and he does a good job not disturbing his neighbors tranquility.

THANK YOU!!!!!! Don and Denise from my group, truly appreciate it.

Owner's Response: Hi Damola and friends. Denise and I are happy to hear you and your friends had such a great time. The staff will miss you all for sure and I'm sure Jaco will as well! It's a great town as you discovered, full of beautiful people and great places to go. We can't thank you all enough for calling our home your own having found it better than you expected. Always GREAT to hear that our home, its location, our staff, and our furnishings with in the home and outside were better than you expected. We all look forward to seeing you all again in the future.

The North end of Jaco Beach is home to our lovely beachfront condo, where you will find luxurious touches such as imported mattresses, marble bathrooms, a third floor pool and ocean front balcony (complete with mini bar) and a staff eager to attend to your every need . Tres Regalos Resort is nestled in to a great North Beach location close to a forested and flowering jungle area directly on the beach. As you arrive you will be entranced by views of the mountains, the rain forest and the Pacific Ocean, Maybe even a monkey.

Up to 6 adult guests can be accomodated in this 3 bedroom condo as well as a small child or any combination of the above. The Master has a king size bed and sliding doors opening to a mini balcony facing the pool. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has two twins. You will find plenty of storage.

Extras such as daily maid service, babysitting services, transportation, golfing, grocery shopping, surfing lessons, and World Class Fishing Tours can be arranged through our amazing onsite staff.

Other Activities: We now have the beautiful Crocs Casino directly next door for all types of gambling, slot machines included. Many restaurants located in Crocs as well as a very active night life.

You have got to head to Manuel Antonio for the most incredible wild life park and beaches in the world. Only 1/2 hour away and easy to get to.

Carara National park is even closer.

Incredible Zip lining and the Tranopy Tram lining tour for the less daring only 4 miles in either direction.

Fantastic surfing with competions every weekend at the Back Yard in Hermosa - 5 miles down the road!

The ATV tour through the mountains and up to a waterfall is great as these are areas you will never see unless on an ATV.

The fishing is the best (World Class Incredible)

Hiking in Parrita and all other areas is beautiful. Wildlife, Rain Forests, and waterfalls! Wow!

A trip for dinner to The Villa Caletas on the mountain just out side of Jaco is one you will never forget.

Tree house dining just outside of Jaco and on a mountain, Cliffside! Incredible food.

Travel into La Paz in the mountains above San Jose for a cooler climate and a complete change in the type of vegetation. Fantastic Trip!!

Golf: The World Class la Iguana golf course at the Los Suenos Marriot resort in Herradura is less than 10 minutes away. 18 holes of Magnificent greens through two rain forest valleys and along the Pacific Ocean as well. A technical course where a straight shot is often better than a long one!

Often the white faced monkeys will join you with their young on the course. Scarlet Macaws and Toucans are popular visitors to the course.

The food and drink at the end of a great game are fantastic at any of the restaurants here. The Hook Up is one of our favorites.

Daily maid service or additional 'when ever needed' service is available, if desired, for an additional cost. Our girls are great and it is a huge help to them and their families when you leave something small for a tip. Most guests will leave around 20.00 to 30.00 dollars a week. Shall you want your laundry completed including wash, dry, fold, and delivery just ask for Leyla and the girls. A few extra dollars and the service and smile you recieve in return are priceless! The help you provide to a beautiful family is again Priceless! We have the best girls and maids in Costa Rica and or anywhere. You can ask for anything and most times we can and will provide. From booking of transportation to tours and or a simple ride to the bank and most times the answer is 'no problem' 'no worries' and or 'hop in'!
