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
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.
There are many beautiful condos in Jaco - and this is certainly no exception. In all of Jaco, there are not too many penthouses, and of those, not many of them have an additional balcony and views like this! So, we think that the best features of this ocean view penthouse are the views from the covered rooftop balcony! A spiral staircase will give you access from the main balcony to this covered rooftop balcony, where you will enjoy INCREDIBLE views of Jaco Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west AND a majestic mountain range to the south... STUNNING!
Another unique feature is the full tub in the master bathroom. Bathtubs are very unusual in Costa Rica and this one is BEAUTIFUL!!!
While you are here, you will have the opportunity to have personal, personal, personal service! While you are in our home, it is important to us that you FEEL at home.
Our extended family of eight stayed in two Bahia Encantada penthouses. To start with Stephanie and John are a delight! The condos are super clean and updated. The interiors are nicely furnished. The complex is well maintained and the pool is spotless and just beautiful with several areas to swim in of different depths. There is even a separate children's pool and swim up bar area that makes for the perfect picnic spot. John and Stephanie let you know from the start that they are there to help make your stay wonderful and they mean it. My daughter hurt her ear at a prior location and John and Stephanie drove us to a pharmacy and got her the proper care she needed and then kept checking that she was okay. The beach area is beautiful and fun to watch surfers and search for shells. The waves were too rough for swimming or children this weekend, but that's okay because the pool is great.
I would like to say thank you to Stephanie and John for everything. They make you feel welcome from the beginning to the end. When you arrive at the condo you are greeted down stair with open arms and they take you to the condo. The condo is exactly the way you see it in the picture. As for the view it is amazing and the location was perfect. Staying at this condo made me feel at home. Any problem you have John was there right away to help you as soon as possible. The town is very close by so you can walk to the town or just pay a small taxi fee of $2 to $3 to and from the town. Security is 24 hours at the gate which make you feel safe. Another thing that stand out was the way Stephanie give you a personal cell phone to walk with to call local numbers and a house phone to call any where in the US for free. There lot of activities to do and lots of food to eat. One of the places that we ate at that was great is the TACO BAR which we ate there twice. The people in Jaco are very friendly and nice and make you feel welcome to the town. My family and I had such an amazing time in Costa Rica that we wasn't ready to come back.
Stephanie and John
My family had a great time at this condo. There were 5 of us spanning three generations and its' three bedrooms were perfect. We really enjoyed the rooftop balcony for listening to the surf. What a relaxing way to spend some time. We used the condo as a base location for exploring the surrounding area. There are plenty of restaurants and souvenir shops in Jaco. Manuel Antonio is about 1.5 hours away. To reach the national park it is an easy drive; also easy to travel for rafting, ziplines and other activities. John and Stephanie are so friendly and were great to work with. Our biggest complaint was the noise from Clarita's and other bars (bad karaoke) that lasted past midnight and early morning roosters.
Everything you see in the pictures is exactally what you get. Thie penthouse was fantastic, pool is amazing, great location about 1/2 mile/$2 taxi ride from downtown Jaco. Property managers, Stephanie and John are so personable and meet you when you arrive, take you to your condo, give you the basics and a map of Jaco so you know how to get around. They know the area well and the information they give upon arrival was more than helpful as this was our first time in Costa Rica This is a gated property with 24/7 security and a phone call away directly from your condo - they called our Taxi when needed and it would be there within 5 mins.
Clarita's Restaurant and Beach Bar was so convenient and right next to the property on the beach. We would walk over (in our bathing suits directly from the pool/beach) and enjoy lunch and/or an afternoon cocktail or two. The staff is super friendly and prices are very reasonable. John and Stephanie have a notebook in your condo with about 20 favorite restaurant suggestions and we tried several, all were great, our favorites were Clarita's, Taco Bar and El Hiracco (sp).
I give John/Stephanie, this property and this great local town of Jaco' 🌟🌟 🌟🌟🌟star rating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was accommodating for 4 of us, clean and loved the rooftop deck where we enjoyed morning coffee and sunset drinks.
Stefanie and John couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful from start to finish,
We will be back, and will recommended this property to others.
The condo was beautiful and spacious . The managers of the condo could not have been more welcoming or helpful. It had everything you would need . The draw backs were the roosters waking you up every morning at 4am and the noisy Tico bar located right below . I realize that is out of control of the condo owners. If you can get past those things, this is a great place.
We stayed here in March, 3 couples, our first time to Costa Rica. This condo and property couldn't have been any better. The place itself is exactly as seen in the photos. They are not out of date at all. What you see is what you get. The location is perfect, as it is a simple 10-15 walk or a cheap $3 cab ride to downtown Jaco. There is also a convenient little store right out front of the gates, and a delicious soda (Raquels) that we frequented. Beachfront, there is Clarita's Beach Bar also next door, which is a very cool little hangout, with good food and great service. Best pizza ever! The pool area at the condo is also perfect, lots of loungers, beautiful view, many very nice friendly people to meet. Like I said this place had it all, was just plain and simply perfect! I would not hesitate to return or recommend to others. John and Stephanie were great to deal with, and very quick to respond in any way needed. Jaco Beach is my new favorite holiday destination, and Bahia Encantada is the only place to stay. Looking forward to many happy returns!
