"Everything was great, we had a great week, the house is in front of the beach that's something we appreciate so much, the house is not the far, but far enough to be in a quiet place. The beach was beautiful, not too crowded (as we like it) there are a lot of things to do (surfing, kayaking, sightseeing and many others). The town is really calm.
Now, the house. The house is big enough for 12 people, really comfortable, it has everything you need (kitchen, 4 bathrooms, towels, A/C, etc.) there's a pool and an area to have a BBQ, perfect to spend time with your friends and family.
However, i could've given 5 stars, instead I gave 4, because we faced a few problems with the house, perhaps due to the lack of regular maintenance (nothing serious, but definitely affected us a couple of times). But when we had a problem with the house, Dave would soon be in touch to the find a possible solution."

"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!!!"

"My wife and I stayed at Toucan Tango for two weeks in late December 2014. We had a better than excellent time, due in no small part to the total environment of Toucan Tango. The attributes are evident from the photos: exquisite view over the rainforest canopy to the ocean, fantastic pool, a lovely home that is fully appointed and furnished. The details: if the elements of nature are not your thing.....then Toucan Tango is not for you. The howler monkeys, giant toads, and plethora of tropical birds are a symphonic backdrop for the entire evening and nighttime. Poolside kitchen is great. Even though there are a number of remarkable restaurants about 10 minutes away in Ojochal, we chose to spend most evenings cooking and dining on the patio. While I would characterize ourselves as adventurers, many days we never even got in our car, opting instead to hang out on the poolside patio and walking in the jungle surrounding the home. The patio is totally private. We were gracioiusly greeted by a neighborhood friend of the owners, who provided us with a thorough orientation. A very useful notebook for the house and region is provided by the owners. Their restaurant recommendations are spot on. The road accessing the house is a fairly rough gravel track which is steep in spots. Accordingly, the owners recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Our experience was that even when we forgot to switch our car into 4 wheel drive mode, there was no problem navigating the track. The house is very spacious. Kitchen is well appointed, and we love to cook. This place reflects great attention to aesthetic details. Great art throughout. Excellent ventilation. The BR's are all air conditioned, but we never once turned any of them on, preferring the gentle breeze provided by nature and about a dozen ceiling fans........even on the patio. The pool is one of the nicest I've experienced at a vrbo rental. Obviously, we are considering a return trip"
