Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed it so much here swimming in the pool, relaxing and going to many different restaurants. We loved Andres checking on us everyday and giving us a lot of suggestions. We especially like Ronny's restaurant and went there twice. It has great food, a nice view and free WiFi for the kids. For ziplining, we say MidWorld(you have to try the superman). For rafting, we suggest PRO.

The pool is great after the beach or at night we would hop in. Very relaxing outside when it was not 1000 degrees. Beautiful views, and tons of monkeys, so fun to watch.

We really loved it here and we know the next group will like it too. Hope to be back one day. Pura Vida

Minnesotans in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Costa Rica was wonderful and in great part due to the exceptional accommodations! The house was just as described ... and more. Villa Son Rises is comfortable and well maintained inside and out. We appreciated Andres! He helped get us situated and made many wonderful suggestions that made our trip so memorable: the farmer's market, Mary's Rentals at the beach, Ronny's for dinner and the sunset, Henry to guide through both parks. He even introduced us to balcony birding! The area around the house is easy to navigate and met our needs for groceries, dining out, beach, and activities ... Not to mention the pool and daily monkey show. We highly recommend this property.

Mainer's in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

The entire trip was great. The house exceeded our expectations. Andreas was as good as everyone says. The groundskeepers and the cleaning service were excellent. We have three girls under seven and we highly recommend Ronnys for dinner(we tried several resturants recommended in lonely planet and ronnys had the best food and views) Mary's beach rentals in Manuel Antonio, the evening frog walk(make sure you ask to see the crocodile area!), and Rainmaker(rainforest hike with waterfalls and suspension bridges 15 miles from town). We would not change anything about the house or our entire trip and we will be back!

Très belle location

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions les premiers francais à réserver cette villa absolument magnifique. Tout y était parfait, y compris les visites des singes capucins le matin ou le soir. Nous avons vu beaucoup plus d'animaux dans le jardin de cette villa que dans le parc manuel antonio !!...

Seule la localisation de la villa qui se trouve à Quepos n'est pas top. En effet, la côte du pacifique centre du Costa Rica n'est pas le plus bel endroit de ce pays. Mais la villa et les plages environnantes valent le détour quand même.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time here! I'm only sad our trip was so short. Every morning we would wake up and sit on the deck and see the incredible tropical birds come through. I'm not normally an early riser, but I was waking naturally at 6am and couldn't wait to get out there with the binoculars and my coffee. Every afternoon a troop of about 30 monkeys came through the property - so fun! We brought tons of bug spray as all the travel recommendations say to do...and never used it. We never encountered a biting insect and were outside all the time! The pool is warm and we were in it every day. The property is really wonderful, the home is clean and comfortable and well stocked with linens and kitchen equipment. It's an easy, short drive to Quepos for any supplies, and also very close to Manuel Antonio for the touristy stuff. Andres is great, always available, cheerful and helpful. We were a little confused about the cleaning situation (when does she come? Do we need to request it?), but we weren't there long and it all worked out. They clearly take immaculate care of the property and it shows. One thing - we had a group of 8, and with the open floor plan the acoustics were a little crazy. Sometimes it was too loud to hear conversation on the floor you were on, but could clearly hear the conversation on the other floor. I don't imagine this would be an issue with a smaller group. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat, and I hope I get the chance to! Thank you Maggie and Andres!

Great Stay at Villa Sonrisas

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation getaway. The house is everything the pictures show and more! The trip was fantastic. We experienced monkeys in the afternoons, a wonderful nature tour through Manuel Antonio park with a guide suggested by Andres (the property manager), a visit to the fruit market, kayaking and so much more. Andres made the stay extremely comfortable for everyone, and it was just such a great trip. I would highly recommend this house to anyone - it is so close to everything!

Great place to spend a quiet birthday with close friends

  • 5 of 5

I love Villa Sonrisas! A little late with my review, but I was lucky enough to spend my 27th birthday at the house with my best friends in May of last year. It was perfect and everything I wished for. The home is gorgeous, and has an outdoor balcony upstairs that is perfect for coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. We saw tons of monkeys jumping from tree to tree daily, some big iguanas and a sloth. The house has a full kitchen, which allowed us to cook and eat breakfast at home, but it's also close to great restaurants so we were able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Andres, the property manager, was also super helpful! He suggested restaurants and helped us plan whitewater rafting and zip lining tours. I can't wait to visit again.
