Do you ever wish you had a perfect place to escape to with your friends and family? Make your wish come true with a stay in this lovely beachfront condo in Costa Rica, featuring a shared pool, upscale accommodations, and plenty of nearby attractions.

This Jacó home for nine (six adults) is just steps from the soft sands and gentle waves of the beach, as well as adjacent restaurants like Soda Villa or Clarita's Beach. Even closer are the blue waters of the shared swimming pool, a great way to beat the heat that still affords nice ocean views. Of course, nothing will ever beat the views from your private balcony - enjoy the sunset like never before!

Inside, casual wicker furnishings meet beautiful paintings adorning the walls and high-quality materials, creating an atmosphere that's equal parts elegant and welcoming. Use the wireless internet to share photos with the world, or just settle onto a couch with your loved ones and enjoy cable and DVDs on the flatscreen TV.

Not in the mood to eat out? The kitchen is ideal for the gourmet of your group, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Dish out some snacks at the breakfast bar-style seating for three before savoring the main course at the balcony seating outside.

Leave cleanup to the dishwasher and head off to bed - three bedrooms allow six guests to stay at once. The master bedroom has a luxurious king-size bed, while the remaining two rooms each have a generous queen. All of the rooms enjoy balcony access, with two bathrooms, along with a half-bath and private washer/dryer, allowing you to freshen up. With a queen and twin sofabed available, everyone can stay in comfort.

On top of surfing lessons by the beach, your home is well-positioned for exploring downtown Jacó - it's just off of Pastor Diaz Avenue, where you'll find several of the city's bars and clubs. More adventures await outside of the city, with fishing trips available in Playa Herradura six miles to the north, while horseback rides, zipline tours, and more are available in the rainforests to the east.

Place your reservation today and prepare for an unforgettable Costa Rican getaway!

The location of the place is great. It is only about an hour and a half ride from the airport ($60 Uber/taxi ride). It is on the quieter, less crowded North end of Jaco beach making it much more tranquil then the Southern end. This is also one of the few units which has a roof top balcony to sit and watch the waves or sunset.

The unit itself is very spacious. Three good sized bedrooms and the master is huge with walk-in closet and views of the ocean. Kitchen is well stocked. Was nice that the frying pans weren't flaking with teflon as most rentals have. I usually travel with my own good knifes, but this place had several sharp and in good shape. Also, this complex has it's own water filtration system. I drank the water all week with no issues which is also nice if you have kids who might accidentally swallow some while bathing or brushing teeth. The large fridge has a great ice maker for all your beverages. The unit also has a very large washer and dryer (they provide soap) so pack more beach toys and less clothes.

For those who don't want to cook, 20 steps to the left when you enter the beach is a great beach front bar and restaurant. Lots of variety on the menu for all tastes from burgers, pizza and wings to many Costa Rican dishes and fresh seafood. Often I would order there and bring back to the pool. I highly recommend the Seafood Soup (coconut milk or broth based--go for the milk).

The beach is great also. there is a very gradual slope to the sand into the ocean which gives several advantages. One, easy for kids to get into the water and be able to stand even out 50-100 feet and two, if you like surfing or body surfing, the gradual slope makes for long wave rides.

I really enjoyed this place. I'll come back for a longer stay next time!

This was our first family vacation out of the Country with all 5 of our children. It was the perfect vacation. Great location, wonderful pools, friendly staff, and comfortable condo. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Everything was perfect. The only issue we had was the keypad entry on the door didn't work.

“Thank you for everything, your space was everything as advertised. When we were locked out the bathroom someone came right away, when we return to costa rica will definitely keep you home in mind, thank you.”
Wes B. Apr 2019
We loved the location of the condo, right on the beach. Our unit had private roof access which had incredible views! The payment process was smooth and we received all the information that es needed in a timely manner. We will be back.
Irene W. Apr 2019
Loved 3 bedrooms. Loved the deck and view. It was so comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms were amazing with huge showers.
The only negative, and this is strictly a wish. I wish your cable TV carried some English Chanel's other than CNN international. I will definitely book again
R MICHAEL H. Apr 2019
We enjoyed our stay and the condo was excellent. Slept 6 comfortably but for 8 adults would be a bit of a stretch. My kids had no problem with sleeping in the living room. Good amenities and nice quieter part of town.
Matt R. Mar 2019
We would definitely stay there again! All was perfect except coffee machine did not cooperate

We have rented 20+ Airbnb, VRBO houses over the years. This apartment was by far the dirties we have ever stayed in.
1) The beds - terrible. Mattress awful, bed sheets worse than the mattesses. They did not fit the mattress and mattress topper so we woke up all night fixing them. On top of that they were OLD and piled and saggy. Just plain disgusting sheets
2) the entite state of the apartment was dirty. We rewashed bed sheets on the second night. Floors haven’t been mopped in months and more dust than the dessert. The cushions and bar stoolls were terrible and dirty. The whole apartment needs a paint job and pressure washer job.
3) The apartments elvator didnt work once in our 8 day stay. There are not enough umbrellas for the pool desk. 3 to be exact and one guy kept taking 2 to his beach lounger and was never at his beach lounger. Hogged them all 8 days. There is room for 10+ umbrellas with tables and implanted posts, they have there which makes lunch and the afternoon unbearably hot.
4)mouse/rat fecese every.where. Absolutely EVERYWHERE.
Will not stay with vacasa managed property agaun.

Great access to the beach, clean, comfortable beds, roomy kitchen. Eating and living room space limited despite sleeping room for 8. Nice onsite pool. Security (gate and beach/ pool) excellent. Cool rooftop deck. Had plenty of linens and beach towels. Weak WIFI. We would definitely stay here again.
Chelsea D. Dec 2018
My family and I really enjoyed our vacation. The staff was very nice and attentive. The place was clean and looked exactly like the pictures online. I would stay there again if I was to go back to Costa Rica.

The place was immaculate, very spacious and beautiful. Delicious for spending some quiet time with the family.
Melissa W. Aug 2018
Check in was nice and easy! The place was much nicer than the pictures can even show. We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom condo with balconies off or each bedroom as well as the living room. Kitchen was good size too. The place was more than enough space for my group of 6! Very nice pools and the Pacific is the back yard! There’s a REALLY good restaurant and bar that’s right on the beach in walking distance. Staff and other guests staying in the building were nice as well. This place is good for family, friends or couples trip! I’d stay again. Only 1.5 hours from airport. Waze app was a savior!

Have stayed at Bahia Encantada for the past 5 years. Vacasa was the easiest company by far to make reservations

They are ready to make your stay as perfect as they can !!!
Ed G. Nov 2017
I was pleased with the simplicity. Plenty of room. Room safe was a plus plus all the basics, coffee maker, iron, extra towels and pillows and blankets.
Daniela H. Aug 2017
This an awesome location and Jaco is a beautiful beach. The vacasa staff is extremely helpful and understanding. No need to keep thinking about it, do it!
Karla A. Aug 2017
We were very pleased with our stay at Bahia I4. The condo was great, furniture was nice and very comfortable.
We loved the pool area and enjoyed our morning coffee with a great view from the balcony.
***The roof top was a nice surprise!:)
I definitely recommend this place especially if you are looking for something close to San Jose and/or the airport .
Kellie W. Aug 2017 506-2643-3130 for ATV/Buggy tours. Our guide was Danny! Great customer service, he took some wonderful pictures with or phones and he was very helpful and patient with my 71 year old Father-in-law. We took the 3 hour tour - all 7 (ages 12 - 71) of us loved it!
The condo property was very well kept with security all the time. The gentlemen on the grounds (Jesse) was very helpful and kind.
The people in Jaco were very friendly and helpful. Great trip! Definitely recommend it!
Nancy M. Jul 2017
Would recommend staying here especially for families. I was with my two adult kids and we had a great time. The unit was for sale and I believe might be why there were bare necessities in the unit. It was clean. The excursion people were exceptional as well and would be highly recommended. Xplortura Tours. Would stay again if in Jaco in the future.
