About Stephanie Craig

Have you ever had Moose Tracks Ice Cream? Our owners - Wally and June Blume - are the developers of this flavor and many others which can be purchased in several grocery stores from coast to coast in the US. They have been coming to Costa Rica since 2005 and purchased their condos at BE in 2007. They love the beauty of Costa Rica and the gentleness of the people here. "You can plan to be as busy or as low key as you’d like, which is the beauty of vacationing here. It is a thrill to wake up every morning and see the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Jaco Bay. It is like a symphony for your eyes". They own several companies and their lives tend to be pretty busy in the US, so they love their time away here in Jaco. Wally plays golf and they both love to read and spend time with friends and family here. Since their time in Jaco, they have friends from different cultures as they enjoy people they have met from all over the world. They love being able to reconnect from year to year and catch up on their lives.

Stephanie Craig purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stephanie Craig chose Jaco

Wally and June used to go to Florida every year to escape the snow from the Mid West. The weather in Florida became pretty unpredictable and they spent several winters in Key West with temperatures in the mid 50’s. They have friends who had been coming to Costa Rica and suggested they try it. The first year here made believers out of them and they’ve continued to return. They’ve traveled to many places in the world. They love the fact that they can enjoy this climate while not having to travel so far from home. There are so many activities to enjoy here that there is something for everyone. They have had friends come to visit who love bird watching. From their balcony, they saw 44 varieties of birds and were thrilled. It isn’t unusual to sit on the balcony and see Macaws in pairs or groups fly by. They are so colorful and absolutely beautiful as they do “a fly by” in front of the balcony.

What makes this condo unique

This condo was their home before they built their own home in the Jaco area, so there is a lot of TLC that went into decorating and keeping it up. It was more than a rental to us. It truly was our home for several months out of each year.

There are many beautiful condos in Jaco - and this is certainly no exception. However, in all of Jaco, there are not too many penthouses, and of those, not many of them have an additional COVERED ROOFTOP balcony with views like this! So, we think that the best feature of this oceanview penthouse is the view from here! The spiral staircase will take you to this breezy hide away where you will enjoy incredible, panoramic views of Jaco Beach, the Pacific Ocean AND the mountains to the east ... breath-taking!

Another unique feature is the full tub in the Master bathroom. Bathtubs are very rare in Costa Rica and this one is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Your experience here gives you the opportunity to be spoiled at every level - for a a great price! While you are here, we want you to feel like family!


Guestbook comments from the manager

Our group has stayed in various condos in the Jaco Beach – Los Suenos area for the last eight years. We have found these two condos (G-5 and H-5) to be the best we have rented.

The units were very well kept and supplied with all the necessary amenities. The pools, grounds and beaches were exceptionally clean and inviting. The property managers were great and looked after every detail to ensure that we had a good time during our stay. From this location we were able to enjoy everything there is to do in the area, from some of

the best fishing in the world, to surfing, canopy tours, ATV riding in the mountains - and of course, the wonderful people of Costa Rica.

I encourage anyone wanting to stay at the Bahia Encantada Resort Condos in CR to book either of these units. They will definitely have a wonderful time. 5 Stars!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this condo! It was very comfortable, well furnished, very clean, and the views were awesome. We spent every morning drinking coffee on the rooftop patio and every evening watching the sunset. The pool and the grounds were clean and very well maintained. John and Stephanie, the property managers, were extremely helpful and were quick to reply to any questions. We highly recommend this property as well as the following restaurants: Bello Resto Bar Italiano a short walk from the condo, Parsley and Garlic in Croc's Casino, I Love Sushi in downtown Jaco, and Clarita's.

The condo was perfect, pool was relaxing and beach was steps away.

  • 5 of 5

This condo provided us with a wonderful week of relaxation in a clean and well appointed place. The unit itself is wonderful- pictures are accurate. Roof patio was great for evening cocktails during sunset. Pool was quiet and relaxing. Town is a short walk away, with enough places to eat for a week- if you want to dine out every night. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Stephanie and John were available if we needed them for anything - they were terrific.

We have no words to describe our satisfaction with Stephanie and John services.

If you want to wake up in paradise take one of the two penthouse apartments.

Bahia Encantada is very secure with guards 24/7.

Thank you, see you next year.

Everything you need

My family of 5 had a great stay in the spacious G-5 penthouse unit. Stephanie and John were awesome with all the details and welcoming us with all the information we needed. The unit was close to everything and we enjoyed watching the 2 macaws on the dead palm tree out back, as well as the ocean sunset from the patios. Skip eating at Claritas and go to Graffiti and Side Street Bistro for your meals. The food at both places is amazing!

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a nice stay! Aren't those macaws amazing? I hope they leave that tree up forever! The macaws nest there every year and give our guests a very unique 'bird's eye view'!!! Come see us again soon! Blessings, Stephanie
