About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath large condo located 120 yards from Jaco Beach.

My Monte Rey condo is a beautiful two bedroom two bathroom condo located 100 yards from the beach on the south end of Jaco. It features two king beds, granite counter tops, large closet, three LED TV's, a large kitchen with stainless appliances, washer and dryer, stunning sunset views, beautiful & functional outdoor living space, 24/7 security, small pool, air conditioning and private parking. In my opinion, the south end of Jaco is the most quiet and the beach is the most beautiful.

About Greg

I live in Colorado, but spend several months a year in Costa Rica. I love the weather, diverse climate, mountain terrain, outdoor activities, rain forests and beautiful beaches. I am a business owner in the Colorado and love to travel. I have found Costa Rica to offer everything I am looking for in terms of a vacation destination.

Why Greg chose Puntarenas

I wanted to buy a condo near the beach and close to the San Jose International Airport. Jaco Beach is the largest beach town in Costa Rica and offers travelers a central location to explore many other attractions. My condo is a large 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo and it's located very close to the beach. It's large enough to stay for several months and be extremely comfortable. There are only six units in my building, so it's quiet and private. The condo is located about a mile from many restaurants and other stores in downtown Jaco. You are only an hour from Manuel Antonio, a beautiful beach with many tours available.

What makes this condo unique

Very close to the beach, one mile to many restaurants and shops, close to the San Jose International Airport and centrally located to many attractions and tours.

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three months (mid December to mid March) in Jaco at Greg’s condo and absolutely loved it. Spacious, clean, secure and all that was promised! Beautiful view of the mountain and steps to the ocean- only about a 2 minute walk past an empty lot. View from the rooftop was amazing in all directions. Six condos in the building and all other guests were polite and non intrusive during out stay. Manuel was our favourite security guy, always smiling.

The condo itself was exactly as was in the photos, no surprises and it was beautiful. Drinking a fresh cup of 1820 on the balcony in the mornings will be absolutely one of my favourite memories.

Greg was very helpful, ensuring his business manager, Jafeth was present at our arrival which ended up being quite later due to a delayed flight. Greg checked to see if we needed anything and purchased a new grill for us.

The condo is at the south end of the beach and known as the best part of the beach to most everyone. Weekends can be busy and weekdays tended to be pretty quiet with plenty of space to enjoy the beautiful views, play in the waves, watch the surfers and soak in the sun.

The community has loads of excellent restaurants, a short cab ride into the heart of town. You can purchase all kinds of beautiful mango wood bowls, etc. in the numerous stores. The Tico Pod had some beautiful pieces of art. We were leaving just as Jaco Walk was opening up so we will be looking forward to checking out the new digs of some of our favourite restaurants like Graffiti and Side Street when we return. Loved Amancio’s but they seemed to have challenges with deliveries. The Pizza Shop has an amazing smoked prime rib on Thursdays nights and on Sunday’s, smoked ribs.

New Years Eve was spectacular. Everyone gathers on the beach for the most breathtaking fireworks you can imagine. I believe it lasted 40 minutes!!

Thank you Greg, for providing us with the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. Best of luck with the La Fortuna property you are developing. We are sure it will be incredible!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't really do justice to this condo. It was very comfortable, clean and very spacious. My family and I really like it. We also like the location, which is a few feet away from the beach and the outdoor shower located near the pool for rinse-off after the beach. It was very secure. It did not get a higher mark because parking was very limited and was a problem when other people staying in the complex did not really care about sharing the space.

We have already recommended it to our friends.

Highly recommended stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Greg's condo for 28 days and everything about our experience was superb! Greg met us when we arrived, helped us get there, and answered any questions we had before leaving us. The condo look just like the pictures and there were no "surprises". The location of this condo cannot be beat!! It is a stone's throw from the beach and there is a great soda right on the corner along with a mini super. It is close enough to the "main drag" to walk to that area as well. Greg was a great host. We had an issue with the wifi (company's fault, not Greg's) on one of our first days but Greg was quick to try and help. He also answered questions we had regarding areas to visit and activities to do. The condo is very safe and as we were staying for an extended period of time it was so nice to have the washer and dryer in the apartment. Occasionally power would go out but, hey, its Costa Rica...¡pura vida!...and that's not Greg's fault :) I highly recommend this property!

clean, quiet and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Excellent condo, large rooms and comfortable king sized beds. Enjoyed watching a wide variety of birds from the porch and having a bar/cafe 50 meters away was convenient. Greg was very helpful and everything worked well in the condo.

Beautiful property, well maintained, well presented

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 months in Greg's condo and loved it! Beds and furniture were comfortable, condo was well equipped and Greg responded quickly to our questions and needs. We like to walk and really appreciated that the property was only 1 mile from the weekly farmer's market and 1 1/2 miles from the largest grocery store in Jaco. We did not feel the need to rent a car.

From the deck we could see a slice of the ocean and the sunset, as well as a view of what we called our own rainforest where we hiked and viewed toucans, frogs, a monkey and a Blue Morpho butterfly. Watching the macaws fly over while we drank our morning coffee was a real treat.

A short walk down the road brought us to the nicest part of the Jaco beach. It also brought us to the Tiki Hut, a beach front bar and restaurant where we enjoyed many sunsets and good food (and a few beers).

The swimming pool, while not large, was perfect for our daily use. The pool and grounds were very well maintained by the on-site caretaker, who also provided gate security.

We plan to return to Costa Rica and will again stay at Greg's condo.

Great Place, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 and had a wonderful time staying at this 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. We felt safe, since there was a guard to operate the gate 24/7. The property was well kept. Check in was a breeze, the property manager had lots of helpful tips and tricks!! The apartment was very nice, clean and everything worked! Full functional kitchen! The pictures don't do it justice. Only gave it 4 stars because the shower in the master bathroom was not useable - due no shower curtain. The short walk to the beach was perfect to carry surfboards and not have to take the car. Everybody was very friendly. We would absolutely stay there again ;)
