We stayed here in December, 2012. We stayed in an upstairs, 2 bedroom unit, fully furnished, with patio facing the beach. I agree with other reviewers about the outstanding location...quiet, off the beaten path but only a short walk to central Jaco action, easy access to beach, shopping, restaurants. Security is great 24 hours a day. You can see the security guard regularly, but he is always unobtrusive. Our owner was also a hands off owner, but available if needed. Secure parking if you happen to use a rental car and drive. Nice little cabana with BBQ grill. Units are furnished with full kitchens, well stocked with kitchen ware and appliances. Hot water. Plenty of electricity. Internet access available for those that have more important things to do than enjoy the beach. Grocery store just a short walk away.
The complex is at the southern end of Jaco beach. Very clean and well tended units and property is extremely well maintained. Room cleaning is available at a cost. But, who needs a maid to make a bed, or wash a few clothes, or put dishes in a dishwasher. Do it every day at home, so it doesn't seem like a big deal to me. I personally like the option of choosing to go to town for a meal, or, if the mood strikes me, prepare meals in the kitchen.
Beachfront is close, clean and mostly uncrowded. 15 steps from the beach gate to the sandy beach. Another 100 steps to the water...more at low tide. A slow and easy walk down the beach takes you to the southern end of the beach. Another slow easy walk takes you up the beach toward the center of town. It was wonderful to sip coffee early in the morning, watch the surf break from the patio, and enjoy the birds, iguanas and squirrels prowl the area. Equally wonderful to take a morning dip in the ocean, or play in the waves during the day or evening as the tide changes. Astounding to see a flight of scarlet macaws, 20 strong, pass overhead.
The village is family friendly. The party folk don't stay here. Was not disturbed by noise at any time during our stay. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach in Jaco. Easy travel time to Quepos, Puntarenas, only about 2 hour drive from the airport. There are other beachfront options available in Jaco for a lesser price, but they will not provide you the amenities or privacy available here. Well worth it, IMHO.
