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 this condo at Bahia Encantada 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. Stephanie and John met Wally and June in 2009 when the Craig's moved to Costa Rica full time. We had very similar life and business philosophies, so it was an easy decision to begin working together in 2012. We love what we do - representing the country we love, taking care of our fantastic guests and being property managers!
Stephanie Craig purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Stephanie Craig chose Barrio Los Villalobos
This complex is direct ocean front! It has three large adult and one children's pool. Clarita's Bar and Grill is located steps away on the beach and are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - one of our guests favorite spots! Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!
What makes this Condo unique
From the balcony, one guest counted 44 varieties of birds! 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. Guests have seen dolphins and whales in season. One can see the entire view of Jaco Beach and the sunsets are incredible! The breezes are beautiful and relaxing. My favorite treasure is during Green Season. Guests can steal away to the private, covered roof top balcony and watch their own light show over the ocean. It is magnificent! Finally being the penthouse, we are on the top floor. We never have any noise above us. Since we own both penthouses on this floor, (the only two) we have room for parties of up to 12 guests AND our guests have the entire floor!

The property was beautiful and extremely well maintained
The condo and the property itself was a 5-Star experience. It was very clean, well maintained, and centrally located to anyplace we wanted to go in Jaco. Definitely will be returning at some point.
This is an amazing spot! We would definitely stay here again.
Everything about this trip was amazing! From the very start, Stephanie and John were welcoming and informative. The property and Penthouse were perfect for our family of 5! We enjoyed the balconies every morning and evening, as well as the great pool and beach/ocean access. Having a wonderful restaurant (Claritas) so close made it even better.
We enjoyed our hikes at both Carrara and Manuel Antonio. As well as our many hours going between the pools and the ocean.
Everyone at the property was helpful and again Stephanie and John were great. They were responsive to any questions and requests we had. We can’t wait to come back!
Thank you for such a great review Jennifer. We loved having you and your family stay with us - and love even more knowing that your vacation was all that you hoped for! We truly look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Great family vacation
The condo is very nice. Wonderful sunset views from the balcony. The pool is nice and right on the beach. The beach is kind of rocky but this is typical of this part of Costa Rica. The location is perfect for numerous excursions. We did zip lines, waterfall rappelling, a monkey tour, and a catamaran cruise. Great restaurants in Jaco. The only negatives were a neighboring rooster and a nearby bar that was a little loud on Friday and Saturday night. The managers, Stephanie and John were great. Overall, we had a great family trip.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay Drew. Thank you for the great review! Just wanted you to know that since you left we have bought sound machines for the bedrooms - no more rooster noise! One of our recent renters recommended them. Why hadn't we thought of that ourselves! Anyway, they are now in place and the guests say they work great. So sorry that we didn't no about them while you were here. I hope you will come back and try them out! Hope to see you soon!
Fantastic view and first class condo!
This condo is perfect; the location is great, the penthouse view is fantastic, 3 comfortable bedrooms, comfy living room and very nice and updated kitchen. John and Stephanie could not have been any nicer, attentive to our needs, helpful before and during our stay. The only reason I could not give it 5 stars was due to the roosters living in the yard below the condo. Unfortunately, a couple of us could not sleep well once they started making noise around 3 am. Stephanie provided ear plugs, but I have a hard time wearing those to sleep. If you have the master bedroom, it is not bad at all, but those of us in the 2 other bedrooms could hear it all too well. I told Stephanie about this and she appreciated our feedback and stated she was going to look into a solution. Again, she and John are first class people! If you are a deep sleeper and/or have the master bedroom......book this condo! :-)
I'm so sorry that the roosters interrupted your sleep, but am very happy that everything else in the condo was perfect for you.
Thank you for taking the time to talk to us about suggestions on how to make the situation better for our guests who are either light sleepers or don't want to wear earplugs. As we discussed, Costa Rica is a beautiful country. Jaco is a tourist town where you get the best of native Costa Rica and many of the amenities and comforts of North America. We have small farms that 'bump up' against modern condos up and down Jaco Beach. The novelty and uniqueness are what draw so many people to our lovely area. We still need to adjust to a few inconveniences - roosters being one of them. For most, it isn't a problem. For lighter sleepers, it certainly can be.
We asked you if you thought a 'white noise' machine would help. You all thought it would. As soon as you left, we ordered two from the States - one for each bedroom where you can hear the roosters. They also play other sounds as well. I am expecting them early this week.
Again, we apologize that the roosters disturbed your sleep. We appreciate your candor with us in helping us find a solution. We do hope that you will come back and try the machines out in the future. We will be happy to offer you 10% off any future stay, (other than Christmas or Easter Week) for your trouble. It was a pleasure serving you all. Hope to see you again soon.
Stephanie and John
Fantastic place to stay!
We spent 5 days here and it was amazing. Steph and John were easy to communicate with during the booking process and there to help every step of the way when getting settled in and getting checked out. We spent hours on the two balconies because the views were spectacular! Would highly recommend this location.
So very happy that your stay was everything you were hoping for! It was great meeting you all and we hope to see you again one day soon!
The property was beautiful with a great view. John and Stephanie were very helpful and friendly. The condo had everything we needed.
So glad you enjoyed the penthouse. What a terrific family you have. Thank you for coming and know that it was our pleasure to serve you!
