Sit on the terrace, enjoy the 3 crystal clear pools, and unwind the Costa Rica way!

After living in Costa Rica for nearly 5 years we decided we would always want to visit after moving back to the United States. We continue to visit our slice of paradise in Jaco 2 times a year but we are happy to rent our condominium to those looking for a wonderful relaxation destination. We have worked hard to create a comfortable and welcoming home away from home so you can relax and enjoy the excitement of Jaco Beach, Costa Rica.
Greg Betz purchased this condo in 2008
The tiny hamlet of Jaco is located in the Pacific Coast province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. It’s the ultimate hideaway for sun seekers and active travelers, with cinnamon-hued volcanic-sand beaches, lush green rain forest and verdant mountains. Surfers flock here from around the world, but families, and honeymooners also find much to love, thanks to the multitude of beaches, outdoor activities, dining, shopping and nightlife. Explore the Costa Rican rain forest by horseback, learning about the flora and fauna in this impressive eco-system. Take an ATV tour to beaches, remote villages and waterfalls. Try your hand at sport fishing, paragliding, sea kayaking or even bungee jumping. Spend an afternoon at the Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls, where you’ll find millions of plants, flowers and orchids from around the world. Zip line through the jungle, play a round of golf or take an aerial tram tour of the rain forest. Expert surfers will want to check out La Roca Loca and Playa Hermosa for a challenge.
Our unit located conveniently on the ground floor with easy access to the largest pool featuring a lovely waterfall and shade trees as well a children's pool. Paloma Blanca also features 2 ocean front pools so you can relax and listen to the waves coming and going. The entire complex has 32 condos in total with 4 pools to explore allowing you to spread out and never feel crowded. You can use the poolside cabana and BBQ grill to have a cook-out or take a $2-3 taxi ride to “downtown” Jaco and enjoy over 80 restaurants and bars!
Unlike most beach resorts in Jaco, there are chaise lounges and umbrellas free for your use as a guest of Paloma Blanca. The chairs are courtesy of Mike and the guys at Tortuga Surf school that offer surfing lessons right out in front of the condo. Don’t be concerned if you have never surfed before, Mike is masterful in helping clients of all ages launch their surfing career! Rates may change but as of August 2013, Tortuga surf lessons were $20/hour with surfboard and surf shirt provided.
This apartment checks all the boxes that one needs for vacation. We felt safe as the complex is guarded 24/7 on both entrances. The maintenance staff is really hard working and they do a great job with the surroundings. The property has 4 pools but the best one is right in front of this apartment. It is one of the cleanest pools I have been in. The kiddie pool right next to it was very handy and safe for our younger child that is not ready to swim alone yet. It is situated near a very clean beach (no rocks) the sand is black because it is volcanic sand but the water is warm and clean, there are a lot of waves so you cannot really swim but it is fun for the kids to surf or jump the waves. It is about 1,5 hours from the Manuel Antonio national park, about 15 minutes away from Los Suenos. It is also very close (1-2 miles) to the down town area that is full of restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets. Most mornings we could walk along the sand to get to the downtown area but most nights we couldn't do that because of the high tide, but you could still walk to downtown from the regular road that had a sidewalk.
The inside of the apartment is very spacious. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The apartment does have a damp (almost mouldy) smell when the air conditioner is turned on (maybe the filters need to be changed) but it didn't affect us as we kept the fan on and didn't use the air much. We had packed some towels from home just because some places don't have enough but this place was fully stacked with towels, sheets and they even had an initial supply of dishwashing and laundry soaps to get us started till we went shopping. all bathrooms also had soap, conditioner and shampoo which is not customary at other VRBO properties.
There is a barbecue outside that was very useful and we were able to use it a few times. The property manager was very friendly and was very helpful with tips on the area and travel. We were able to park our car inside the property which was a big bonus as we didn't have to have any safety concerns.
We traveled in August which is the rain season and it rain every day (mostly at night) but it didn't affect our vacation fun, if anything it helped that it wasn't too sunny every day and we were able to enjoy more time outside.
Overall this apartment was a great value for the money and I would definitely come back.
We stayed with our son, daughter in law and 5 year old grand daughter. The room
arrangement was great and we had plenty of bathroom supplies as towels and sheets.
Rooms were clean and decorated nicely and maintained.
A bit short on kitchen towels and dish rags. Also short on some basic kitchen
hand tools for cooking and serving. Especially for serving food there was only
one small glass bowl. We has to improvise with the pots and pans.
Most disappointing thing was that the dishes may still have been dirty after going
through the dishwasher so we has to rewash all the dishes and bowls.
We loved that their was a table just outside our door as well as the the pool.
We has a very comfortable stay and would come back hoping our above
concerns had been addressed.
Such a perfect condo! Everything you need was provided for you. The condo was perfectly clean and comfortable. Steps to the beach. Truly a perfect vacation home! Greg was a pleasure to work with. Will definitely be coming back.
The property and the people far exceeded our expectations! We are already talking about booking next years trip. I would not have enough energy to type all the good/positive comments about our stay. This was the best vacation ever!
Excellent condo! The unit is pristine. Management company for the development has changed, while we had no problem with the prior company we are trilled with the new company, Lost Beach. On there team they have several great individuals that worked for the prior company. They could not have been more helpful. Two of their team were especially great, both of whom worked for the prior company. Lupe and Tatty both deserve a recommendation from both Lost Beach and the Costa Rican tourist bureau as they are excellent ambassadors for their company and Costa Rica and her people.
This was the second year we stayed at Paloma Blanca in Jaco so it was almost like home with many of the same people returning. The condo is very accommodating with most items you'd have in your home but could use more large bowls and baking utensils - if it wasn't there , we borrowed. The vacationers at the complex held a pot luck most Fri. nights to get acquainted with new folks. A very friendly atmosphere, a few steps to the pools, the clean beach is only a few more steps away, security is on both gates 24/7, the management and staff are the best. Thank you to the owners for taking such good care of their property and making it a home away from home. I would rent this condo ( and hope to) again.
