Amazing wedding and vacation!
My fiance and I were looking for a venue for our destination wedding and we came across Hotel Nine on VRBO. Based on the reviews and a few good conversations with one of the owners, Jack, we reserved Casa 9 for 10 days, which included hosting the wedding on day 3 of the trip.
Despite doing all the wedding planning via email and WhatsApp, the wedding planning went very smoothly! Geoff, the other owner, and Francis, the hotel manager (he is the greatest!) understood our vision, obtained bids from vendors, and finalized all the contracts with the vendors. The wedding was beautiful and was exactly what we dreamed of! It was a little nerve-wracking not having seen Hotel Nine in person (and having 70 guests coming to the wedding), but the beach and hotel are even more beautiful in person than in the photos. The beach has the most amazing sunsets, which made for a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony and reception. Due to the high tide the ceremony couldn't be on the sand, but in hindsight, I'm glad it was on the concrete area of the Hotel so that guests didn't have to deal with the sand, but could still enjoy the beautiful scenery.
After the wedding we enjoyed 7 days with 30 of our guests who also stayed at Hotel Nine (Geoff and Francis also helped manage overflow accommodations since all 70 wedding guests couldn't fit at Hotel Nine). I can't say this enough, but Francis is the greatest! He helped with booking excursions, shuttles, dinner reservations, and even coordinated beer deliveries! He was attentive and amazing!
Overall, our wedding really was the best wedding ever, and it wouldn't have been possible without Jack, Geoff, and Francis. The entire 10 days at Hotel Nine was an incredible experience that we will cherish forever.
AMAZING DOESN'T EVEN DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE!
Where to begin, Geoff helped us find this place after contact online and he was not wrong about it fulfilling our needs. Before we arrived, Marcel(the concierge) was a valuable resource for scheduling everything from the transportation to the littlest desire. Once we arrived, the house was even more than we had hoped for! Usually, pictures overshoot reality. But here at Casa Nine, the pics didn't come close to doing it justice. And that is just the beginning. Marcel attended to every need we had during our stay. From a malfunctioning AC unit which was fixed quickly to making every reservation we needed. He even added a few excursions in that we didn't know about but were enjoyed by all. And the man makes a mean Pina Colada(fresh as it can be too)! The pool was amazing and we all enjoyed it! Dinner with Chef Maykol was great the two nights we had him. Our desire to sample local fare was the only reason we didn't go for more nights but certainly would have been happy to have more meals from him. They even got a cake to celebrate my belated Birthday. Ana, the housekeeper did a great job and even salvaged my rash guard which i thought was ruined by doing her magic. Looks like brand new! Massages on the balcony were great. We had the absolute best vacation and are already talking about coming back. If you are wanting to go to Jaco in a large group, then Casa Nine is your place and Marcel is your guy!
WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE!
We have traveled all over the world and this was our favorite place to stay. The location is beautiful right on the beach with a private area! Amazing big rooms with a central pool and bar location. Lots of deck space to relax. The staff was THE BEST! Marcel is a life saver and will go above and beyond for any group to make any request happen! Took so much stress off of us for bookings and setting everything up! Make sure to take extra cash as there’s a lot of things you will need it for! 10 stars for this place we want to come back right away!
40th Bday Fun
30 people at Casa 9 for a week to celebrate birthdays and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! Loved everything and everyone. Talking about going back and taking our kids. :)
Excellent Family Trip
We loved the property amenities, location and staff. Right on the expansive beach, soft sand, with chairs, umbrellas and a tent in grassy area right on beach. Lots of food options for onsite or very nice restaurant 150 yards down the beach. Short walk or cheap taxi to town. Staff was outstanding and helped us in so many ways and with nice extras. Rooms very nice and all well kept and maintained. Recommended tours were excellent. Highly recommend!
The crew at casa 9 is completely fabulous. they were always available & willing to go above and beyond to assist my friends. everything that was advertised on airbnb is what was delivered. i appreciate the hospitality that casa 9 and its team gave us. thank you.
Absolutely amazing experience. I don't think the pictures they have online do the pace justice. It was incredible. We went here for my bachelor party with 15 buddies and it was perfect. Right on the beach, walk out and go surf, and the staff was incredible. Marcell the main host couldn't have been more accommodating. Helped us with the excursions, setting up dinners, giving advice on the area, he even picked me up when I was sick from the partying and took me back to the house. Between Geoff and Marcell they both made things extremely seamless and easy for the whole group. Its tough coordinating with 15 other guys and there is no way we could have done it without them. AMAZING experience, everyone already wants to go back!
Absolutely as advertised, the owners are intimately involved from the time you book throughout the whole process. every detail is covered to make sure your stay is enjoyable. 11 of us, and we all want to come back next year and make it an annual trip. Thank you Geoff, Jack and Marcel for making this an amazing experience for all of us. If you’re looking for homes in the area for a large group, look no further -
Casa Nine was the perfect location for our event. We had the entire place to ourself. Marcel and Ana went above and beyond with everything. From setting up volleyball on the beach, to helping us plan our excursions and coordinating with the chef our amazing meals. Can't recommend enough, anytime I go back to Jaco I will definitely stay at Casa Nine again.
This place deserves a perfect 10. Perfect Beach Villa! I had booked another villa and they cancelled on me 48 hours before my arrival, I was in a bind to say the least. I reached out to Casa 9, they not only accommodated me, but helped my stay be stress free. They are a one stop shop. Anything you need while at Jaco they can assist. The place also has 24 hour security. Laundry services on deck too. They have bicycles too. I’m telling you nothing they didn’t think of!
I booked Casa9 for my friend’s bachelor party and it really exceeded my expectations. There were 15 of us and we had the whole space to ourselves. It was like a private getaway in itself. The concierge/manager, Marcel, took care of everything for us. He was super accommodating with any requests that we had and responded to any messages I sent him almost immediately. The cleaning staff, headed by Ana, did a great job and was super attentive to anything we needed like towels or laundry. We had a pool party with our own personal chef for a day, we learned how to surf and went on a small hike in the area. I would definitely recommend this space for any bachelor parties, family vacations or spring break. Thanks to the hosts and staff for making it an unforgettable experience!
Jack & Geoff at Hotel 9 do an awesome job keeping this beautiful property in perfect condition. This is the spot to have a bachelor party, wedding, family reunion. Their staff is extremely helpful with local knowledge when it comes to tours, restaurants recommendation, bars and whats hot in Jaco. If you are thinking abou
It is a small but nice place, clean and well conditioned. Right in front of the beach, with excellent service. The rooms are comfortable, the pool clean. An excellent place to spend a few days at the beach. Surf lessons can be arranged at the casa 9.
It is seen that it is a pleasant place to vacation.
Nice they let us use the grill. That is supposed to be for users. But otherwise everything excellent. They let us have a cooler and no time restrictions in the pool and jacuzzi
Amazing service, friendly staff and top notch food. The rooms are a little were perfect, all that pales in comparison to the amazing location and wonderful staff. Special thanks to Marcelo & Ana!
Stop searching for the perfect house in Costa Rica! You've found it at Casa 9!
We rented this property for a group of 14 (7 moms and 7 daughters celebrating High School graduation). Planning this trip was nothing short of easy, with so many "ideas" flying around regarding "what to do" while we were there. After speaking with Jack and Geoff, the owners, we were very much assured that our stay at Casa 9was going to be nothing short of top notch!
The guys arranged our airport transportation, which even took us by Walmart for a grocery shop on the way to Jaco!
Once we arrived, Jack and Geoff were there to greet us (we were lucky they were in town) and even gave us a group briefing about "do's and dont's" and some helpful information about the hotel.
Andres, the concierge was our angel on Earth! He was willing to help us with anything we needed, (even when I ran out of Diet Coke-he had some for me in no time!!)
Ana was fantastic with keeping the place immaculate each day, and Eleasar kept the pool, pool deck and outdoor areas absolutely spotless!
READ THE REVIEWS and stop searching! I promise, this place and its crew will knock your socks off. We're already planning a trip back next year.
Casa9 is the place to be!
First and foremost I would love to thank Andres the manager and concierge service for all his hard work in making my best friends bachelor party a total success! His work ethic is off the charts. I thank him greatly for that. I am big on people first and the people at Casa9 are great! I would like to thank the whole staff! Jake thank you for allowing us into ur beautiful home located steps away from the beach. Casa9 Has all the amenities anyone can ask for and I recommend this place to everyone!
Amazing waterfront location. Great service from the concierge (Francis) and the rest of the staff. Easy access to town. Clean rooms, cold a/c and just overall an amazing experience. Will definitely rent again
The perfect venue for any event!
Casa9 was excellent from beginning to end. It is very well equipped as it used to be a hotel. This is what sets it apart from any house. The restaurant is perfect for chef services and storing your food and drink throughout your stay. It also contains a pool table and 2 televisions which are great for entertaining your group. Many of the rooms are very spacious and well above what you would expect for a normal hotel room. The condition of the building is impressive which helps you relax in comfort. The pool area is perfect for any size group or any level of energy you desire to exert. The staff were great. Our concierge Francis was very resourceful, spoke excellent English, and was a genuinely nice person. 10 out of 10 rating to him.
I do not have any issues to report.
The location is also great. Surfing lessons are directly out front and this section of the beach is quiet and relatively empty. Downtown Jaco is a quick 10 minute bike ride away and bikes are available are very low cost. Excursions are also close by.
I would recommend staying at Casa9 for any sort of event. I will be returning annually.
Fantastic Group Rental
The location is perfectly located on a great surfing beach with plenty of activities near by. Town is a short walk by beach or street to find local fare. The staff was very accommodating and made sure we were well taken care of and safe. 5 Stars all around.
Casa 9, The pictures and description don’t compare to all you get and how beautiful Casa 9 is. From the time you arrive, you are treated like royalty. The house is absolutely gorgeous, directly on the beach. The staff does an amazing job a creating a home away from home feel, but in luxury! Everything was absolute perfection! We will be back for sure!
Casa 9 is great for a large group and location is great with beach front access. the chef is the best. make sure you utilize this service. Marcel the concierge will help with any of your needs. great staff.
From top to bottom start to finish the whole Casa 9 team and home was professional, clean and helpful. Geoff the owner was up front and thorough about all payments and recommendations. Marcel the concierge was awesome, he helped book all excursions, transportation, meals and recommendations. The chef Michael was incredible I highly recommend having him for meals. Ana the cleaner kept things in order and made sure everything was sanitary. We felt safe and secure 24/7 with safes in all of the rooms and a full time security guard. I couldnt have planned a better trip without these people. The #1 thing was their honesty and fairness with everything
The trip was a blast, very low stress, all thanks to the management and facilities at Casa9. As well, The food was way above and beyond what I expected, thank you Chef Maykol! Thank you Marcel for all your great work!
This property is fantastic! As soon as we booked, we were contacted by the owner and property manager to discuss our stay. We had a group of 23 friends, and everyone enjoyed every minute. Marcel and the entire staff were available and helpful throughout our stay. Marcel helped plan all of our meals, excursions, and everything else we needed. The property was clean & beautiful. The views are amazing! We are already planning our next stay!
