  • Just as Lovely as We Hoped

    "We are a group of 5 adults who enjoyed this home/ammenities GREATLY. The pool/rancho area is beautiful - perfect as we spent most time out there. The bedrooms were comfortable, master ensuite very convenient. The kitchen was well stocked and laid out - the counter with stools was used daily as we would work as a group to get meals together. We walked A LOT during our week here which was fine for us. We used the grill, washer/dryer - all worked great. We were glad to be a little distance from the busy-ness of the main street. The kids enjoyed the iguanas that came to visit/roam through the yard, and I made friends with a neighbour cat. Vivian is an excellent resource - she answered all questions, had excellent recomendations and made me very comfortable. I highly recommend this property."

  • Great Home! Great Value! Great Host!

    "I was part of a group of six adults and two children staying at this most awesome home for Christmas 2014. In every group, some can be comfortable, while others not. I loved Gary's home! Everything that is needed can be found here! I loved waking up before sunrise, sitting on the back porch with my husband watching the sun rise over the beach. Pool stayed in almost constant use. We used the built-in barbecue located next to the pool. This area also boasts showers, bathrooms, and volleyball net with ball! ready for a fun family game. In the backyard, the fence door opens right onto the beach. After walking on the beach there is a water hose making it easy to rinse the sand off. This house is in a perfect beach location! Really enjoyed walking for a couple of miles after the tide rolls out in the morning. Beautiful landscape, lots of nice people to meet. Most amenities Gary listed were put to good use, #1- WIFI! The Ping-Pong table held several matches, the foosball table saw some action. Even my husband enjoyed the rope swing… we have pictorial evidence. We enjoyed puzzles at the table in the evenings. On Christmas, we played our annual game of Risk which lasted to the next day! We left the game for many others to enjoy. If you like open air, then this home offers it! Large windows with large doors that allow good circulation throughout the main part of the house - gives a "beachy" feel and not closed up. Plenty of ceiling fans throughout the house! Full kitchen with plenty of counter-space. A large refrigerator and pantry. Easy to cook breakfast and dinners when desired. Bedrooms were spacious. If a box fan is not in your room, ask Gary and for an extension cord if need be! It is true the shower water is not American standard hot. Gary was able to adjust the water from being tepid to warm. Gary is the best host ever! Shortly after arriving my husband became ill from a flu he picked up at work and unable to travel to the airport the next day to pick up the rest of our group. At a moment's notice, Gary was able to make the second trip but also stop by the pharmacy to get flu medicine. His wife immediately provided two icepacks. Everybody's opinion matters, but only you can decide what is important to you! If you are looking for Pura Vida in Costa Rica with the greatest host, the greatest place, at the greatest price… choose property #17355!"

  • Gringos Locos

    "This Costa Rican bungalow is nothing short of paradise. My friends and I were depressed that we had to leave. It was hands down the most amazing vacation of my life. The beach is steps away from the bungalow and is great for surfing and swimming(experienced swimmers only). Beautiful sunsets are right at your disposal every night as well. There is so much to do if you take the short ride into Jaco. I would recommend this bungalow to young travelers, families, and retiring folks."

  • Great Vacation!

    "My family and I loved Sonidos del Mar. The location was perfect with the large dark sand beach just down the road and a wonderful hike not too far up the road as well. We loved the size, layout and beautiful decor, just perfect for a tropical getaway! It also had good amenities (blow dryers, towels and all you could need in a gourmet kitchen). The owner Lauri was such a pleasure to deal with and Jan (who helps to manage the property) was terrific too. She popped by to greet us and helped to set up our tours, reservations and surf lessons throughout our stay...The dark sand beach is beautiful with incredibly warm water. Depending on the tide, you can have rolling waves and then pretty calm waters. There is a small restaurant right on the beach as you walk from the house which we visited daily for lunch. We tried others but found it to be our FAVORITE! Plenty of great restaurants as well and all at reasonable prices. We would definitely come back and totally recommend as a wonderful beach vacation with lots to do!"
