|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The SunSetCove November 2016 just got a refresh and several thousands and remodeling .
One of the most desirable houses in Dominical with a magnificent 35 foot pool, outdoor BBQ and massage/yoga deck. The house is a modern two-story home with 4 bedroom and 3 1/2 baths with 2 living areas, tv, internet access, outdoor/indoor dining, outdoor shower. This house can comfortably sleep 10 people. There are 3 master bedrooms so that 2 families can share this home.
If you have a party larger than 10, be sure and ask about our other home available less than 200 yards away.
When staying in a home other than my own, the first thing I want to know is how old is it (in other words, does everything work) and is it clean. You can feel at ease renting this home, because it is brand new. Everything is clean and in working order.
One of the many benefits of this home is that it is air conditioned, but it can also be opened up to let the Costa Rican fresh air in.
First of all, would like to say the house itself was as described and the pictures did not do it justice. We were a party of 10 and we had plenty of space.
The view was breath taking. We enjoyed waking up to such a beautiful scenery. I can't express how amazing our outside breakfasts and lunches with a view were.
Our host Yamil went above and beyond for us. He made sure that we were taken care off and even took us to buy groceries. We travel a lot and can honestly say we've never felt so safe and comfortable during a stay. He organized our excursions and travel. He was very helpful providing us with activities and beaches to visit.
If renting a car, I recommend getting a 4 wheel drive as you will need it to get around.
*Spacious house, good beds.
This is the first negative review we have ever written. For a luxury rental, we think it's fair to expect everything to be in working order. The fact that our first request via VRBO was not answered should have been a sign.
*Informed upon arrival that washing machine was broken. We used a second machine instead that wasn't hooked up so we used a hose to fill the tank, making sure another hose (drain) was placed out the door, etc.
* Informed that dishwasher wasn't working (fixed it two days before we left).
* Informed that sheets for the futon was missing. Also short- number of towels. They scrambled to buy items the next day and gave us brand new stuff unwashed.
*TV did not work until 2 days prior to departure.
*Faucet in downstairs master bathroom did not run water. When someone came, they found it was shut off. When on, water spew everywhere. Someone did try to come and repair on the fourth day. Ended up removing fixture and left with a lot of water on the floor. Someone came to clean that up. Individuals needed to use another bathroom during entire stay.
*Grill was filthy (cleaned upon request)
*Window in the upstairs master on the south side was not secure. Couldn't open/close for fear it'd fall crashing down.
*Sliding doors in downstairs master was off track and couldn't be fixed resulting in a good 3-4 inch gap between two doors all the time to outside (bugs!)
*Both downstairs master bedside lamps' prongs were cut off and couldn't be used. Fixed later.
*Given wrong key for a door.
*Outdoor umbrella worn out/broken.
*Hot water on north side of house-iffy
*Manager kept promising to meet with us. Never came and sent others who tried to help but often could not.
*Had to request deposit return. Got wrong amount back at first. Mgr did not seem to know when we were leaving.
There were other grievances (Major infestation of huge spiders in the BBQ patio that have clearly been there a long while) that we didn't bother mentioning to them.
Basically, the house did not seem like it was rented for a while. A thorough check and repairs in advance of our arrival would have prevented much. Renting the house seemed like an afterthought. We requested a partial refund and that request was ignored.
There are many places in the area for similar pricing that are also beautiful. In hindsight, we would have stayed elsewhere.
I have stayed twice, this place is gorgeous, everything in good operating order, very clean and even someone to call on if something gives problem….Great view ,wake up to howler monkeys and lots of birds singing. The integrated bar to the spacious outdoor deck is great especially if you have great bartender to mix things up. Very comfortable beds with ceiling fans and A/C, we didn't even need the A/C and of course an infinity pool set just right to absorb evening west setting sun…………….
This home is absolutely Stunning. We stayed here with my family of 3 and my best friends family of 4. From the moment we walked through the front door the views are breathtaking . The kids enjoyed the Infiniti pool and we enjoyed sitting by the pool drinking cocktails. The kitchen is enormous and fully stocked with all you need to prepare a meal. We also arranged to have a cook come over and prepare a delicious Costa Rican cousine a few nights that week that we stayed there, she was very reasonable in price, the food was delicious and they were so nice. The bedrooms are huge and they all have A/C and awesome views of the Pacific Ocean . This was by far one of the most beautiful homes we have stayed in. Secluded but only 10 minutes from the main road , popular beaches and restaurants . Definitely will be staying here again soon.
Hike to Poza Azul, a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole only 20 minutes away by foot. or 5 in a car Also drive to to Playa Dominicalito. Only a 7 minute down the hill. Wonderful surfing and swimming beach.
