Why Steve chose Puntarenas

#1 Luxury Vacation Rental in Jaco Beach on TripAdvisor

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the moment I received the keys to the moment I left it was a heavenly experience. Beachfront, poolside with Jacuzzi makes this for a great stay. The condo was decorated as I would of decorated my house in Carmel, Ca. All stainless steel appliances and amazing bedding... very important for me. Walking distance from the main part of town but yet very secluded, secure, and quiet.

Most beautiful, comfortable condo ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed our second trip to Costa Rica; we love the country and the people! We also love Steve Hooven's condo in Jaco and would not think of staying elsewhere. The unit is absolutely beautiful and has everything you'd ever need....luxurious linens, dishes, blender, hair dryers, etc. Our favorite part is the view from the deck....we begin every morning with coffee watching the surfers, spend the days hanging around the beautiful pool, and end every day with cocktails watching the sunset. The condo is just one block from Jaco's main strip....great shopping, great spas, great restaurants--breakfast at Rustico, dinner at Graffitti,, Lemon Zest, Malecon, Kaya, and Adventure Dining. There is so much to a car and take day trips....tour the beautiful Villa Vanilla, experience a sunset at Los Calletas, take a trip to Tortuga Island, spend a beach day on Playa Hermosa or on the Whale's Tail Beach and so much more to do. Best of all you will have the owner, Steve Hooven, and his property manager, Aracelly to welcome you, to answer questions and to help line up day trips. Rent this unit NOW! You will not be sorry. The only downside is you will want to stay longer!!!!!!

Best Vacation in 20 Years!

  • 5 of 5

We have taken a warm weather vacation with our family in the Caribbean for 20 years; the stay at Vista Las Palmas 3A in Jaco, Costa Rica was our best vacation of all! The condo was beautiful and it had every amenity you could think of. The view of the ocean and sunsets was amazing. Grocery stores, liquor stores, farmers market, and excellent restaurants were within walking distance just a few blocks away. There was plenty to do--ziplining, visiting the national park, walking the long beach and relaxing by the huge pool were a few of our highlights. The people of Costa Rica were friendly, smart and helpful. Best of all we had the owner, Steve Hooven, and his friend/concierge Aracelly, there to answer questions and arrange transportation and activities. We plan to return next year...this is a 10+ accommodation/vacation!

Best vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

FANTASTIC! We arrived to be greeted by Steve whose home is so spacious and lovely. Steve was there for anything we needed and assisted in all our excursions.

The weather was wonderful. Sunny and 85. We went white water rafting, ziplining and ATV riding. Best vacation ever.

Amazing Beach Front Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully appointed on the interior as well as the exterior. All the rooms are well equipped and nicely designed. The decks offer amazing ocean and mountain views. The location to the town of Jaco is perfect to be walking distance to shops and restaurants. The entrance to Vista Las Palmas is very welcoming with a friendly and helpful staff. The infinity pool and hot tub is perfect for lounging and relaxing. We loved our stay and the management staff is very helpful. We highly recommend this place to stay for vacation.

Vista Las Palmas "best" Condo in Jaco, outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Property was very spacious, larger then we expected, it was very clean and well maintained. The ocean views and infinity pool were outstanding ! Vista Las Palmas is centrally located, in close proximity to all restaurants and tourist attractions. We go back every year and insist on the same rental unit in Vista Las Palmas.
