"I was there for with 10 other people for a bachelor party. I think everyone in the group agreed that it was probably the best vacation they had ever had. The house is amazing, it feels like you're in an MTV crib type of place. It's literally on the beach, and the beach in Costa Rica is pretty unreal. Jim (the owner of the house) was awesome. He set up ATV riding, transportation, and the chef for us, all for better prices than anyone else could do. We had the chef everyday. It's pretty amazing how cheap it is and how amazing the food was. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU GETTING THE CHEF EVERYDAY!! Location is perfect in regards to the city too, as it's literally a $3 cab ride. (you could walk easily but we didn't) There is a security guard/yard keeper there 24 hours a day, and trust me when I say a security guard is important to have. They'll call a cab for you, set up beach volleyball for you, pretty much whatever you need. If you're going to JACO beach this is the place to be. If you tell people in town where you're staying they all know which house it is and how nice it is. I highly recommend casa rio mar!!"

"We just returned from two weeks at Casa Sunset. Matapalo is a great location if you enjoy being away from the crowds. Just to the north and south are two larger towns, Quepos and Dominical, with all of their amenities, each close to a National Park. It was easy to travel either direction and nice to "come home" to your own bit of paradise. Casa Sunset has spectacular views of the ocean and sunsets to die for. Yes, you do have to travel up a steep road to get there. Along that very road we saw Capuchin monkeys and the large trees at the house attract many birds. We saw parrots, toucans, laughing falcons and many other small colorful birds while sitting on the patio. We saw sloths every day along the beach road in Matapalo. In other words, you don't have to travel far to see much of the amazing wildlife Costa Rica is famous for. The house has all you need, we cooked dinner for ourselves every night. My husband especially enjoyed grilling. As nice as the house is, you will find that you will spend most of your time in the outdoor space. Casa Sunset has a wonderful pool and patio. Some is undercover in case of the occasional shower. You can open the large french doors and have the wonderful indoor/outdoor living that Cost Rica's climate allows. Perfect!!!"

"This condo is amazing! Rent it today before it is booked! We spent a week here in July and it was the best vacation ever. The views from the 4 balconies are breathtaking. Of course the view of the ocean was great, but the view of the rain forest is really what made the vacation even better. We saw several different species of birds, white faced monkeys and howler monkeys. The pool area was nice, but we spent most of our time at the beaches. You can walk to the closest beach (Biesanz), and it is just beautiful and very secluded. We also saw lots of monkeys at this beach. The beach at the national park is absolutely spectacular, surrounded by dense jungle and lots of wild life. It was nice to return to a beautiful condo after a day of excursions. We are a family of 4, and we had plenty of room. Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom and balcony, which makes it a perfect condo for a family with teenagers or a small group of friends. We will definitely stay here the next time we travel to Costa Rica!"

"My friends and I went to Casa Dolphin for New Year's and everything was awesome. Susan is a very kind person and she always answered my mails with all the info that we needed.
The house is actually more beautiful and charming than it looks on pictures. Everything was clean and neat, the rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are very well maintained and the kitchen has everything you need. The pool was always clean and fresh.
We spend a wonderful week and we have no complaints :)"
