Why should you stay with us?

1A) Our prices are the best of any place for what we have to offer. Our beautiful 3bdrm spacious home will satisfy the most discerning traveler. WE WANT TO RENT!!!

1) Clear, magnificent, close unobstructed view of the mountains and ocean from a spacious patio, the pool, the master bedroom balcony/bed, one of the downstairs bedrooms, and a peek from the living area. You aren't looking across housetops or treetops.

2) Short ride by car to 3 beautiful beaches

3) Large spacious home (2300sf) with a beautiful infinity pool. All granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and beautiful showers.

4) Top quality management who are from the USA and have lived there for years and speak the language fluently. They can assist you in whatever you wish to do

5) Water. We have a tank so you don't have to worry about whether the locals are going to turn off the water at the wrong time (believe me, it happens)

6) Our secure location in Los Altos de Cacique is excellent. Monkeys often come through. Every home is custom. Our neighbors are wonderful (they own one of the best restaurants in the area) and quite sociable if you wish.

7) 40 Minutes from excellent surfing in Tamarindo. A zipline is only 25 minutes from the house. A beautiful waterfall/swimming area is about 35 minutes.

8) We are 5 minutes between nightlife, good shopping, and good restaurants in Playa del Coco and a beautiful bluestar beach and elegant restaurants in Playa Hermosa.

9) A great blend of 1st and 3rd world cultures

We look forward to having you as our guest.

My daughter took this photo of me surfing for the first time in Tamarindo. The greatest thing about visiting my place in Costa Rica is the feeling of serenity. Of course there's much to do. At the same time, after a short period, one feels the tranquility of the country. I promise, it's hard to leave after just a week or so.

Enjoy. :)

PS - when looking at the map, we are located on HWY 159 past the right angle turn on the first road to the left.

Bernie purchased this house in 2006

It was a bit of good fortune. A friend recommended the area and when visiting we were directed to the 'private' beaches that are part of Los Altos de Cacique. The water was so clear and warm with abundant fish that we decided, on the spot, to buy a house we had found in the development that was 60% completed. It took a bit of doing but we are extremely happy with how things turned out.

The view, the location and the quiet setting make is 5-stars

  • 5 of 5
The Sunset House has a spectacular view, great proximity to conveniences in Playas del Coco (i.e. the nice supermarket and veggie/fruit market), and is in a very quiet private and secure residential neighborhood. We really enjoyed the pool from sunrise to sunsets (and what a sunset it is!).

The kitchen is well equipped. We had some minor problems with the dish washer leaking and the Manager had that fixed. We grilled out a lot, and if you plan to as well be sure to check to see if you have a full gas tank for the grill. Ours ran out and it was a Sunday so we had to wait for a refill. The neighbor was away and their dog was left out and yelped incessantly one night through. Hopefully you won't have to suffer through that.

We hope to visit the Sunset House again soon. Our three-year old refers to it as "our new house"... what more is there to say than that!

So Terrific!

  • 4 of 5
This is a really great house at a good price. When we got there we were immediately in love with the pool and 2 bedrooms. The 3rd bunk room is ok. The house is big and airy. The pool area is also great but needs chairs that are not broken. I really hate writing about the broken chairs but it was a bummer not to have a chaise to lay down on, next to that delicious pool. There are a few really close beaches that we drove to that I will remember forever. La plenca has beautiful sand, blue water and monkeys in the trees. Very private. Ocotal was my favorite. The sand was black on the beach and white in the water. The tidal pools kept the "kids" (12 and 20) busy for hours. Restaurant/bar right there! Ate at Ginger twice and thought I died and went the heaven. Oh, almost forgot....sailing with sunbird (I think that was the name of the company) was perfect. We snorked and swam and checked out some cool caves. Didn't find the town of Coco to be as charming as other travelers but... To each his own!!! Great house, though. You will love it. 4.5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Michele. We are currently looking for more chairs. The problem is they are expensive and it's hard to find good ones in CR. We will find some soon.

Excellent location and value

  • 5 of 5
Excellent value for the money. The house was beautiful, location perfect, sunsets lovely. My family and I stayed for 1 week at Sunset house. It was a perfect spot to have as base camp for day trips (sailing on the Sea Bird from Playa Coco, surfing at Playa Grande and snokling from Playa Penca). My two teens enjoyed the private bedrooms and internet while recovering from daylong activities. Close to both Playa Hermosa and Playa Coco, within driving distance of many other activities. There were a few problems with the pool and the internet that got resolved. Exterior furniture, deck chairs, hammock are a bit tired looking, but this did not hinder our enjoyment of the house, I would reccomend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joan for your stay. Sometimes in Costa Rica, the internet is a bit dodgy. I do apologize if the pool wasn't clean. We do have a service that cleans the pool each week so I am unsure what the reason would have been. We are in the process of upgrading the outside chairs and hammock but it is hard to find good stuff that isn't ridiculously expensive compared to the states or Canada. Please let me know if you wish to come back and I will provide a complementary day.

If you have any say in the matter, STAY AT THIS HOUSE!!!

Sunset house is amazing, it is the best place we have ever stayed while on vacation. It is a wonderful respite amid all the hustle and bustle of sightseeing. It is so nice to come home and sit in the pool after a long day...and the view is amazing. I don't know the owner managed to get this lot with this house, but wow, the view, the neighbors, everything is great.

Coco Beach and Tamarindo are cool too, although we did get suckered into sitting through a time share presentation before we knew what was happening at one point (haha). We were too polite just to walk out but did say no...but Sunset house is nicer (and cheaper) than anything that they could compare it too.

We only ate in one restaurant that wasn't very good, but we were hungry driving back from Palo Verde and just stopped somewhere on the side of the road. Ginger's was great though, good food, excellent wait staff.

The weather has even been great, mostly rains in the afternoons. It has been so nice that we leave the air conditioner off a lot of the time. A couple of nights we opened the large patio doors and let the air in (though the screens stay shut because of the bugs - haha). We got a 4X4 but haven't had to use the 4 wheel drive yet. One local person told us the paces we should go and driving has saved us over 50% on the tourist packages.

We wanted to thank the owner of Sunset House for his kindness in renting out this great home. We are leaving some paper towels, hand soap, and various kitchen things that we picked up while here. We hope the next people use them :-) It has been a great experience.

Owner's Response: Aaron, thanks for staying at our home. Just wanted to mention for anyone reading his review, it generally rains in the afternoons starting from July - August. More rain in Sept - Oct, then dry weather from Nov - May/June. However, lounging in the pool when it's raining is great. Also, Ginger's is a great restaurant in Playa Hermosa. Everyone should go there during their stay.

Excellent, better than expected!!

  • 5 of 5
The listing was exact! Photos of the house were accurate, the house was even better than the pictures. The pool was the big hit for us, we spent so many wonderful enjoyable hours in it. Our friendly frogs enjoyed it also :) We walked to town a few times and took a cab back with our groceries etc. It was most enjoyable to do this. The view from the house is incredible, you can never get tired of looking at it. Restaruants in town were very good and people were very friendly and helpful. We booked all our tours downtown and not one tour let us down!! We got engaged in Costa Rica!! We Highly recommend this place, area. We even ventured to Nicarugua. We stayed with one other couple and it was the holiday ever :)

Staying in this home made our holiday perfect.

We have certainly been enjoying your house and the area for the past while. It's hard to believe that our time to return to reality is almost here! Each day we have gone off somewhere for a few hour trip to find what we can see, but most of our time has been spent on the patio or in the pool. The breeze always seems to cool us off a bit, and we never tire of the view. It's been a very comfortable and relaxing time. We usually try to find a place that is on the beach when we travel, and being up the hill has been a change. Both of us now feel that we have enjoyed this more because it is quieter and the air is always fresh; unlike right on the beach. I've been going to a yoga class most mornings that I found on the beach at Playa Hermosa, and my wife loves to just sit in the pool reading her book. She doesn't like the heat as much as I do, so being in the pool is great for her.

Anyway, I just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed the place. It was better than advertised!
