About Sylvia Kokowski

Hi there, my name is Sylvia and my husband's name is John. We have a 30 year old son, John who is a Vice-President of a large banking firm in Manhattan. My husband is retired and I work for a local municipality. We have been married for 50 years.

Sylvia Kokowski purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sylvia Kokowski chose Puntarenas

We have visited Costa Rica every year since 1999. We immediately fell in love with the Country and the Costa Ricans who are very friendly. Finally after doing our homework, we decided to buy a condo under pre-construction on Jaco Beach in 2007. We were very excited to watch the development being built.

What makes this condo unique

On our first visit to Costa Rica we stayed at the Los Suenos Marriott Hotel. The hotel is 15 minutes by taxi from our condo. Fishing, Swimming, a Casino, Wave Runner rentals and Fine Dining are available at the Marriott. Jaco Beach, walking distance from development to development or restaurants along the beach make a perfect setting. Wildlife such as the beautiful macaws and toucons and plentiful. You can travel anywhere in Costa Rica by local bus or Grey Line Tours.

i would go back in a heartbeat!!

  • 5 of 5

great view to the ocean and sunsets. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Practically right on the ocean. Quiet, pleasant family atmosphere. No car needed; taxies are cheap- never paid more than $3 to downtown Jaco- we were a family of 5.

Beautiful condo ... perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Paloma Blanca on Jaco beach the last week of July. We had booked another house originally that fell through and Sylvia was amazing with helping us get booked quickly into her condo. Although it was the rainy season, we still had an amazing vacation! The condo is perfectly located. Not in the heart of bustling Jaco, but close enough to enjoy the restaurants. The condo is right on the beach ... in the morning, it was high tide and we watched the surfers from our balcony. In the afternoon, the low tide was perfect for our girls to boogie board for hours. We also had a great experience with Lupe ... she booked us a horse riding tour that took us to a waterfall! The condo itself is lovely ... plenty of space for a family of four (two bathrooms ... a must!) The kitchen was well equipped for us to cook dinner a couple nights and the large table on the balcony was perfect for family meals. Having laundry facilities in the unit was very helpful, too! We liked the fact that there was security 24/7, but we never felt like it was really necessary. We drove to Manuel Antonio Park on our last day ... definitely worth it and an easy drive from the condo. On the way back, stop at The Backyard in Playa Hermosa ... on Saturdays, they have a surf competition with live music. All in all ... I highly recommend this condo!

Nice but not WOW!

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Nice property and pools, clean condo, gated parking, friendly property manager (Lule), wifi, W/D, pretty and unrocky beach right in front

Cons: very weak showers, no table (only 3 bar stools but we had 4 ppl) in condo -- there's one on back porch, so depending on weather, not always ideal to eat or play games outside; walk on beach to town is nice but rocky and there is no way to avoid getting feet wet (which is fine if you're in flip flops, but if walking to dinner in nicer shoes or wearing sneakers, you have to go on main road, which isn't pretty and is fairly far from town); no beach chairs or umbrellas (can rent from surf place - 2 for $10 per day)

Overall we had a great time and no problems but we would prefer to find a different place if we went back.

Wonderful beach front condo in Jaco

  • 5 of 5

This condo is gorgeous. Our unit was very spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths (one with a twin sink).The rooms were beautifully decorated and very well kept up. Two balconies (one large with a dining table and chairs) had magnificent views of the beach as well as the large pool area. The pool was wonderful, probably 25 yards long and great for doing laps in the morning or evening. The grounds are meticulously kept. The beach is just behind the pool area and not at all crowded. The waves are constant but not intimidating making the ocean great for boogie boarding, just playing around and, of course surfing. The air conditioning kept the place cool which was a necessary relief since temperature stayed in the 90's from late morning to early evening. We caught sightings of monkeys in the trees out the front door and scarlet macaws out in back. I would say that this is one of the nicest condos we have stayed at.

Perfect stay in south Jaco beach

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just returned from a trip to Costa Rica. During this trip, we stayed at La Paloma Blanca condo E-4. The pictures do not do it justice! It was clean, had everything we needed from toiletries to beach towels to a fully equipped kitchen. We also took advantage of the washer & dryer and washed some of our clothing. They even left us 2 packets of detergent, so that we didn't have to purchase any. Ohhhh.... free calls to the US and Canada, too! It is conveniently located and within driving distance of Manuel Antonio park, Quepos, Playa Mantas & Blancas...just to name a few... we were only in the area for 2 whole days, but took advantage of the beauty in the area. There are 3 pools at this property and we used one of them. Many times we just walked a few hundred yards from the property and enjoyed the black sand beach... There are also several surf camps/lessons at the beach, if you chose to learn. Last but not least, let me mention the terrace....we spent every morning and evening there... listening to the sounds of nature wakening and to watch the gorgeous sunset each evening... I will definitely recommend this property to anyone and I hope to stay here again in future travels. The booking and check-in process couldn't have been any easier. Lupe Solis helped check us in and was available for any questions and always greeted us with a smile! She is available to help with any bookings or tours, as well. Sylvia also provided tips and information, and was so prompt in answering any questions. I couldn't be happier with our experience!
