My husband and I recently retired to Kelowna British Columbia Canada. We love spending our summers in Canada and our winters in Costa Rica. We have travelled all over the world and when we got off of the airplane in Costa Rica we knew that this was going to be the place for us. The lushness of the rain forest, the Toucans, Macaws, the monkeys all of the wildlife is amazing. The ocean is magnificent and getting up in the mornings and going for a run on the beach brings the serenity and peace that everyone should have in their lives. Ending the day with cocktails on the beach and a sunset viewing is absolutely wonderful. Treat yourself because you deserve it.
Sherri-Lee Parsons purchased this condo in 2007
This is a beautiful property with only 36 units, three good size pools and a children's pool. The complex is family oriented and it has a cozy feel to it. Even when it's busy it's never too much. There is an onsite property manager who speaks English so whatever your need may be Juan Carlos is here to help. Security is excellent and we have a very beautiful beach right out front. It's our little piece of paradise that we would like to share with you.
Our condo complex is a wonderfully family oriented environment. The residents whether permanent or vacationers are always friendly and eager to help. The complex has a wonderful small community feel to it. Our unit is poolside and as you sit at the dining table you can look through the buildings and see the ocean. It is an absolutely wonderful place. Being ground floor and pool side allows us quick and easy access to the pool and the beach. Our unit is quite modern with granite couter tops, tile floors, cable TV and internet access. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms make it a perfect destination for two couples or a family.
Sherri was great to communicate with. This was my first time using VRBO, and she responded quickly and ensured all my questions were answered. The condo was clean and spacious. I really appreciated having two bathrooms for my guests and myself to use. It came in very handy when having to shower and get ready after a day at the beach. And WOW - the location was absolutely perfect! Walking out to the beach and hear the waves crashing each morning was a great way to start the day. The property was very well maintained, and all the individuals who worked there greeted me with a smile. The concierge was excellent and assisted me in booking my tours and shuttle. All in all, it was a perfect stay in Jaco and will return to this place in the future!
We stayed at this condo for the entire month of July, and it became our second home. Everything about the trip was amazing - from the homeowners accommodating our many requests, the friendly staff at La Paloma Blanca, Julie our rock-star concierge, the location of the condo (direct access to the kiddie pool for our 2 little ones), and Jaco itself. We can't wait to return next year!
I researched the Jaco area and found that for the price, location, and amenities, the Parson's condo was the best choice for us. There were four of us (two couples), and were pleased with the privacy we each had. We had breakfast at the condo a few mornings, and enjoyed eating at the table outside near the pool. (Wishing the waterfall in the pool was turned on, we thought maybe that was due to the time of year).
The staff at La Paloma Blanca were excellent. (An iguana decided to take a dip in the pool; they were quick to retrieve it, even letting us hold it for pictures!)
It was wonderful to hear the waves of the ocean so close, and hear and see the macaws sitting in the trees right outside the front door every morning. It was startling to see tiny crabs on the living room floor and in the shower at times, but we just scooped them up and put them outside in the grass.
Julie, our concierge, was very friendly and helpful. She set us up with the best zip line tour in the area! It was well worth the money, with the best staff and a fresh fruit snack afterward!
For Jaco eats, I highly recommend Rustico restaurant, a local soda with a variety of fantastic, inexpensive food. Tsunami Sushi is a must for sushi lovers, and they have half-price rolls, as well as other daily specials.
We had a rental car to explore the area, but walked down the beach to downtown Jaco several times as well. Surfing lessons/board rentals are near the back gate on the beach, and the Tiki Bar just a short walk south of the condo had the best pina coladas! We plan on using the nice outdoor bbq area next time :)
We had a wonderful stay at the Parson's condo, and thank Julie for her help and information. She really made herself available to us at all times. I would recommend this condo for anyone wanting to explore the Jaco area and have an extremely awesome stay.
As this was booked through our company we were not sure what to expect. However, as soon as you walk into this condo on main floor you are facing the pool as well as a view of the ocean. Yes, you can literally hear the waves of the ocean and are surrounded by chirping birds and tropical palm trees. You are paces away to play in the ocean and can have many long walks along the beach or you can basque in the sun or enjoy the 3 pools that this complex has to offer. It also offers a group BBQ that is available for booking across from the condo. The complex is well kept, very secure and quite. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and a cab ride away from downtown Jaco for under $3.00 as well as centrally located to do the many tours that are available. The tours are definitely worth checking into and Sherri-Lee had provided a list of these as well as great contact for us to obtain our tickets.
Our lasting memories will be enjoying our meals on the outdoor balcony facing the ocean as well as the evenings on the beach enjoying the sunsets that were painted every night with a different brush and visited by different planets and constellations. Truly Wonderful! The ultimate spot to be able to rent a well furnished 2 bedroom condo (laundry facilities included) from the gracious and wonderful owner Sherri-Lee. Thank you for sharing your property! We highly recommend renting this unit personally and corporately! The Ultimate location!!! Totally Awesome!!!
I am writing this review while enjoying a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee listening to the birds and waves - and sitting on the couch of this fantastic rental!
Sherri-Lee (the owner) you were just wonderful to deal with, thank you for making booking our first private condo such an easy and stress free experience.
The location is GREAT! We are right on the beach where we have surfed and relaxed every day. Cab rides into town are no more than $3 American and we have also walked many times (15 minutes or so). Its peaceful and quiet, the staff at Paloma Blanca and Daystar has been just wonderful and it feels very safe. The condo itself has a VERY comfortable king sized bed and couch built for lounging. The kitchen has all the utensils we needed including some Tupperware containers which came in very handy for our day trips. I also didn't realise before getting here - but there is a full laundry room which has come in very handy for washing beach towels and some clothes we have gotten dirty on all of our adventure trips. We are here with 4 other couples who have rented other units in the complex also and the walk out to the pool made things really easy!
It was just my husband and I staying, but the unit would have comfortably fit two couples. The second bedroom has its
own flat screen and double bed, plus a full second washroom in addition to the ensuite. For the price, you cant beat it!
If you're in to surfing, Tortuga Surf School sets up right in front of the complex and offers amazing surf lessons and board rentals - and also let us use their beach loungers and umbrellas. Tours and activities we took from here included - Jose's crocodile tours (we actually got to touch a giant one), Tortuga island (absolutely beautiful and super fun, but don't get too excited about the snorkeling), zip lining, and rappelling down 300 feet of waterfalls in the rain forest. All were able to pick us up from our front gates. Also - the food here has been FANTASTIC! We have tried to stick to local Costa Rican places and avoid the americanized ones and we haven't had a meal yet that wasn't great, and well priced.
If I'm ever lucky enough to come back to this beautiful place I would rent this unit again in a heartbeat, and strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to explore Jaco and Costa Rica! Thanks again!
We absolutely loved this condo, owners were incredible to deal with. The condo had everything you will need for vacation, including a lot of home comforts. It was quiet and very secure, the staff were helpful. We didn't end up getting a cleaning during our two week stay but its quite possible that we weren't home when they stopped by. I loved this location for a variety of reasons. We surfed daily up the beach with friends near morgan's cove, so that was a short 5 minute walk for us. The location is away from the hustle/bustle of Jaco which means its definitely quiet. Its about a 15 minute walk on the beach to the grocery store and about 20 minutes or so on the roadways. Cabs are super cheap if you walk to town for groceries then cab it back! I will rent this condo out again for my next trip to Jaco is the dates are available. The condo has a beautiful group BBQ area near the pool you can book for use. The pool area and entire condo complex is well maintained and clean. I was concerned with noise as its near the pool on the main level but this was not a concern during our stay. I cannot say enough good things about these owners and this rental. Do not hesitate to book!!!
La Paloma Blanca is a real gem found on the South end of the beach in Jaco. What makes it so special is that we have both a garden area on one side of the complex and the beach on the other side of the complex. Jaco is a great spot to stay to see many great attractions of Costa Rica. La Paloma Blanca is a smaller gated condo complex with four buildings and only 36 units. There are three pools and a kiddie pool so there is lots of room for whatever you want to enjoy. Socializing and meeting others or just relaxing enjoying some time for yourself and reading a book. In the front of our complex is a great beach to learn surfing and Tortuga Surf School is right out front to rent surf boards and provide you with a lesson. Right behind us is the beautiful rain forest for the birding enthusiast. I highly recommend enjoying your morning coffee by sitting in the garden and listening to and watching the birds. Often Macaws fly by and there have been Tucans spotted in the tree. Once a sloth came and visited for a couple of days and stayed in the tree near the bamboos. It was only once but it was a blessing. Or take your coffee out to the beach and enjoy watching the pelicans dive into the ocean for their breakfast. An hour and a half south is the beautiful and well known Manuel Antonio National Park where all wildlife can be viewed: Monkeys, Sloths, Ant Eaters,Iguanas and more and many species of birds. You will also find an amazing swimming beach in the park. Even better and a bit closer (12 km North of Quepos) is the Monkey Mangrove Tour where you can take a boat out into the mangroves, enjoy a wonderful ecological tour, and if yo are lucky the wild monkeys will come and visit and come aboard the boat. About 40 minutes north is the famous Tarcoles crocodile viewing bridge and just before that is Carerra National park and a beautiful waterfall hike. There is so much to see and do. Make sure to catch the sunset. Take your cocktail out to the beach for viewing between 5:15 and 5:45 depending on the time of the year. Even closer to us every Saturday and the neighbouring Hermosa Beach is a surf competition at the backyard bar. Every cab driver knows it and it's just an $10 ride and about a 10 minute drive South. If you are a golfer there is the beautiful La Iguana golf course. It's about a 10 minute or $14 cab ride to the North. Located in the community of Los Suenos you will also find the Los Suenos Marina where you will be awed by the stunning boats and if you are missing North America you can enjoy some of the restaurants while enjoying the amazing view. Something to do for everyone.
