Overview

Jaco Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults)

We welcome you to our luxury, beach front condo (just steps to the ocean) at the secluded north end of Jaco, but still within easy walking distance of downtown. The intimate, and privately gated beach club offers you all the amenities surrounded by quaint, beautifully maintained grounds. The extremely friendly, English speaking staff will take pride in learning your name and are available to assist you 24/7. The staff will be happy to help with tour and transportation arrangements, sightseeing and activity info, and recommending local restaurants.

Our beach-front unit has three bedrooms, with two spacious full baths with marble showers, dining area, kitchen with bar and living room. A gracious outdoor balcony offers fantastic views of the ocean, beach, and rain forest; complete with both an outdoor eating area and teak deep-seating sectional…a peaceful spot for enjoying the view or taking a nap. The private Jacuzzi and pool with swim-up bar (available for hosting your own private party) is made of natural coralina tile, providing an attractive and refreshing oasis to cool off and lounge in the sun.

You will enjoy all new modern conveniences, including custom-made beautiful Costa Rican hardwood furniture, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and new stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer, central air conditioning, flat screen TVs, cable and wireless internet. Visit the local farmer’s market for local fruits and vegetables, or stop by the marina to purchase the fresh catch right off the dock. If you don’t want to cook, enjoy the great array of local and fine dining in Jaco and the surrounding area.

We fell in love with this beautiful and peaceful Costa Rican retreat and decided to make it our second home. Everyone in our family enjoys vacationing in Jaco and we know you will too. The scenery and wildlife in the area is amazing, the range of activities is endless: surfing, hiking, horseback riding, zip lines through the rain forest, canopy tours, sport fishing, golf, ATV tours, nature tours, night life, fine dining, shopping downtown and more. Wild macaws fly over daily, announcing themselves with their distinctive calls. The largely undisturbed Carara National Park is about 20 minutes away. Guided or self-guided walks through this rain forest give you spectacular views of various monkeys, sloths, birds and reptiles in their natural habitat.

Our balcony has a spectacular view of Monkey Beach, a secluded beach 500 ft to the north and accessible by wading across a small fresh water river flowing down from the mountains to the ocean. Monkey beach features a beautiful waterfall and unique little tidal pools for wading or exploring. If the main beach is not quiet enough for you, Monkey Beach offers that extra out-of-the-way spot nestled against a rain forest mountain slope with gentle surf, great for kids and sea shell hunting.

Family event and wedding packages are available. Make family memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Ruth Gottuk chose Jaco

After traveling around Costa Rica, we decided that Jaco was the place for us. However, if it were not for finding our home at Tres Regalos, we would not have purchased a place at all. The complex is situated on the quiet north end of Jaco beach and has unparalleled views of both the ocean and a rainforest mountain plunging into the beach. Besides the beautiful pool and direct access to the beach, Tres Regalos has a great community of owners, excellent staff and well built units with top notch amenities. We can walk to down town via the main road or the beach or take a $2 cab ride to anywhere in town. Jaco is centrally located on the Pacific coast and is a great home base for many sightseeing trips that are short trips away, such as the stunning Arenal Volcano National Park and Manuel Antonio National Park. Only 20 minutes away is Carara National Park, one of our favorites for walks through the rain forest where we can see the spectacular wild life of the region. There are many great restaurants and establishments in the area which also host surfing competitions and feature local bands. We have yet to exhaust the great number of activities that are available. But even better than that, the peace and beauty of Tres Regalos and the beach is a perfect place to relax.

Stunning Condo; Relaxing Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

The property is just stunning; very well maintained. The condo itself is beautifully appointed. My favorite spot was under the Paradise Found sign on the spacious deck, where I must admit I fell asleep several nights in the soft warm air. The pool was always a refreshing dip after the ocean swim. I must warn you that the sand is from lava rock and somewhat course. The ocean temperature is perfect, but be careful of the rip tides and be prepared for some strong waves. Jaco is a surfing destination after all! The food is fantastic; produce as fresh as can be, flavorful and delicious, whether you cook for yourself or eat out.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a great stay in this beautiful condo. There were three adults in our group but it would have accommodated many more. The pictures of this beautiful condo do not do it justice and they don't show the size as spaciously as it really is. The location is great for anything you want to do in or out of the town of Jaco. The ocean view is great from this condo location. Ruth has some really good local information available and there are details regarding use of all the property amenities. I would recommend this condo to all!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Ruth for her beautiful condo. The condo is ultra clean and exactly how it is described. Beautiful oceanfront location on the quiet end of Jaco beach. Condo facilities are beautifully maintained. Short walk into town to enjoy many restaurants and shops. Ruth was great to work with and very helpful and accommodating. Every day my family has said this was the best vacation ever.

Wonderful Condo and Amazing Owner

  • 5 of 5

We had been working with Ruth for two years to plan our stay at Tres Regalos (we had to keep changing the date for various reasons). She was so easy to work with, and so patient with us. She answered every question quickly, and gave valuable advice prior to us traveling to Costa Rica for the first time.

We were so happy with the condo when we arrived. It was perfect for our group (3 couples). Everyone had their own space...and the porch was our favorite place to eat, take naps, and relax at night. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed. The staff at Tres Regalos were so friendly and helpful. And the view....breathtaking!! We watched the sunset from the porch, and felt as though we were in our own private oasis!

The casino next door had its grand opening while we were there, so we all went over for the big event! It is nice for guests to now have two restaurants, a bar, and a casino right next door! And after the grand opening, there was no more noise from construction or from hotel guests (which we though might happen, but everyone is inside at night, so you don't hear any noise).

Jaco is a great town, and offers so many wonderful restaurants. We did not have a bad meal the entire week! The beach was beautiful and peaceful, since there is hardly anyone there! And if you need to rent beach chairs or an umbrella, you can (for very cheap) a little down the beach from the condo. The pool was also the perfect place to relax!

We would definitely come back and stay at the condo, and next time, bring our kids so they can experience all that Costa Rica has to offer!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children (10 and 11) and I stayed here for 5 nights of a 2 week trip to CR and loved it. Ruth was extremely attentive to my persistent questions and was very apologetic when any small issues came up. And there really were not a lot. Things that were easily fixable. None of which impeded our stay. The only big issue we had was not to do with Ruth but with the construction noise next door which eased up near the end as the casino is set to open on Feb. 14th. It really was irritating at first but then got to be much less noise-invasive. Due to the construction, the instructions to the front of the complex was completely blocked so we had to do some adventurous beach driving (which is common) to get there. No big deal either once you figure it all out. The condo itself is beautiful. All the units have a wonderful view of the ocean. Ruth's condo is furnished exquisitely. It was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you would need. The sheets on the bed allowed for heavenly sleeps! I would go back again...I pray that the new casino adds to them ambiance of this paradise rather then take away.
