About the property


Most of our guests spend the majority of their time relaxing on the very large balcony, enjoying the views, the ocean breezes and the sound of the pounding surf (as well as the sight of the occasional pair of Macaws that fly by at eye level.) Our 2 Bedroom/2 Bath condo is very spacious and features a roomy living room, full kitchen including stainless steel appliances, high speed internet and cable TV, and zoned A/C. Most of our eco-friendly clients turn off the A/C and enjoy the ocean breezes that flow through the apartment when you open the doors.

Jaco is a small town, only three miles long and offers everything that you need. Very walkable.

About Lisa Shah

Our family fell in love with Costa Rica 11 years ago when we visited for the very first time and we have been returning to Costa Rica annually since then. Most people that we talk to feel the same way. There is just something special about this place, the energy and beauty, the fresh air, amazing views and landscapes, the healthy living, and the wonderful people. You'll love it!

Lisa Shah purchased this condo in 2011

The property was amazing, clean, spacious and very comfortable with a million dollar view.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lisa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo. The apartment was well appointed (some comfortable seating would be a good addition for reading or lounging) and you quickly added the finishing touches to help us enjoy our stay and our cooking adventures. The views were spectacular and the quiet location next to the ocean was ideal. We did lots of lazy bird watching - scarlet macaws every day - and even saw monkeys. I especially enjoyed the very large, well kept pool which I almost always had to myself. The only minor disappointment was that the Jaco beach is not great for swimming or snorkelling. It was a great central location to explore this area of Costa Rica and convenient to the airport in San Jose.

Livin the Life

  • 5 of 5

My significant other and I enjoyed our second stay at the Break Water condos for 2 weeks. One week is just not enough time to see all that Jaco Beach has to offer. The condo's are amazing and in a great location within walking distance to town where there is shopping, restaurants, excursions and more. Lisa and Jiten were very helpful to all our needs, and have become friends of ours!

Great Property and Service

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the condo during the week between Christmas and New Years. The view is spectacular, overlooking the ocean, especially at sunset. The unit was very clean and spacious and Lisa was there to great us upon arrival and always just a text away from answering any questions.

Great way to ring in the new year!

  • 5 of 5

Brought our family for our first trip to Costa Rica and the whole trip was a fantastic experience. Lisa and her staff were such a huge help before AND during the trip we can't put into words our appreciation. The condo is great, location is perfect, amenities stellar. We can't wait to go back and will be telling anyone thinking about CR to do it this way! We already miss our mornings and evenings on the balcony. Pura Vida!!

What a beautiful place. Everything was fantastic. Lisa and her staff made our trip 5 star. Anything we needed they were there to get it for us or make it happen. Super location. Close enough to walk to downtown but far enough away to have a private beach setting. The condo is larger than you expect. Very spacious and open floor plan with all the comforts of home. Gorgeous sunset veiws off of a large balcony. We will definitely come back!

Spring Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week in Costa Rica. The condo was better than described; all new with the comforts of home. Lisa, Andy, and Freddy ensured all went well, from airport transportation to securing tours for the family. The view from our balcony was outstanding, and the beach with the awesome surf was fun.

My 12 year old Son, 17 year old Daughter and wife really enjoyed the stay. Downtown Jaco is close; however, not too close to spoil the beach with too many people.

Finally, the casino is next door if you like to gamble or want to have a good dinner out with the family.
