  • Wonderful!

    "Our family of eight had a wonderful vacation at Fuego Del Mar. We felt like the rich and famous! The home is incredible. The pool is beyond words. We thought it was much larger in person than we anticipated from the pictures. There were several floats available. The small outside fridge held plenty of beverages. The bathroom off of the deck was convenient. We loved having the kayaks to use. Everyday we went snorkeling on the reef - about a 10 minute kayak trip. Beautiful reefs so close. The house itself is amazing. The dining room is awesome. We all thought our beds were comfortable. The decor of the house is cool. There is a true attention to detail throughout the home. We used Rosa to cook for us every evening. They were the best meals ever. We all highly recommend the shrimp masala. One day she grilled lobster for us that we bought from a man off the dock. Very fresh! The gift shop was super. Mostly pottery type items made by locals and the very talented owner, Nikki! We were pleased to help the local economy and have a couple of quality items as momentos. The staff was so attentive - candles lit every night, help bringing up groceries from the car, setting the kayaks in the water, and the list goes on. Everything about this trip was memorable. We thank the staff and Phil for making this a perfect family vacation. The only caveat is the location. You will be in walking distance of nothing. A couple of times our 20 something kids got a bit antsy and had the driver take them into town. Most of us were totally content to take in the view and lounge by the pool for the entire week. Highly recommend Fuego del Mar. Great home and great service from beginning to end!"

  • Heaven with sand

    "This was our fourth stay at Sunset house and I wanted to stay.....forever. What a GREAT time!! I loved sitting on the porch, in the hammocks or on the dock. If the sun was too bright at sunset just close the curtains, you can still see through them and enjoy beach without the blinding sun. The house is so comfortable with king size beds; clean sheets the ability to do laundry on site, the full size kitchen, all the comforts of home including AC. We stopped at the grocery store when we arrived and bought enough food for our stay. We did plan on eating out and were not disappointed with the selection of restaurants and they employ the nicest wait staff. The Thai restaurant was my favorite. The chicken dishes tasted so fresh and cooked to perfection. I had many of the chicken dishes along with the vegetables (many locally grown) but I still ate healthy. The fresh fish, shrimp never get old and are prepared by cooks who know how to cook. The breakfast burritos where the best ever. I had lots of exercise between the swimming, snorkeling, renting the sail boat, using the various floatation devices (water saddle was my favorite) and just walking. The horseshoe pits are a nice addition and we would have played more but there was just so much to do. I would be remiss not to mention the sunsets, we sat out on the dock many a night just waiting for the sun to set so we could take pictures and admire Gods handy work. The way the moon lays in the sky is at such a different angle than at home. Yonny (the caretaker) was very helpful, he set us up with a fishing trip and we shared the fish with him. The MahiMahi was delicious. The various native birds delight me every time. We had TV but didn't bother watching it, the internet for checking emails, books to read and board games to play. The bar and BBQ on the beach are great you don't have to upstairs to have dinner and a drink. Taking a shower before even coming upstairs was a nice amenity. Be sure to dip your feet in the water dish before coming inside to keep those pesky sand fleas off your feet and out of the house. Mark has done a wonderful job at making this place not only a home away from home but a home to back to."

  • Nearly as we expected

    "As for the positives, the other reviewers were spot on. The lack of other tourists and thus the peace and quiet was amazing. That, coupled with still being close to the necessities, makes the location nearly unbeatable. Just know that you will be removed from most other signs of humanity, and I personally would under no circumstance try and drive back to the house at night, especially after a couple of libations. You'll find out why after the first time you head down the dirt road and across the wooden road through the mangrove. The only downside, and I really wrestled with docking a star for this, is that the bug situation is no joke. Besides scuba diving (which was great), the other thing I was really looking forward to was sitting out on the deck at night, having a drink, and enjoying the tranquility. The sun set at about 6pm, and shortly after that the insects would appear. My wife was pretty squeamish with the various bugs flying around, and my Kindle screen was a magnet for all sorts of interesting (but annoying) creatures. By the end of our stay we unfortunately found ourselves inside more than we would have liked. We also had to keep the door to the kitchen closed because of the sheer number of insects that would have taken up residence with it open. Perhaps screening-in the deck, like the house two doors down, would be a solution. We gladly would have given up some of the view in exchange for some relief from the bugs. Maybe the insects won't bother you, but it was a little disappointing for us. As for the sand flies, the little red welts left by them don't itch, but they're not a good look for most people. The local bug spray in the blue bottle seemed to work, but it's also oil-based so you might keep the bugs away but you'll be asking for a serious sunburn. We went with the deet-based alternatives, and you're going to want to use it early and often. Two other tips: - I'm not sure how anyone could sleep on the bottom floors with the windows open and not get eaten alive by the bugs. We immediately opened the windows when we arrived, and within a couple of hours we had mosquitos and other guests in both downstairs bedrooms, despite the screen on the windows. Perhaps this isn't an issue on the top floor bedroom, but it certainly was downstairs. - The Trooper is no longer a rental option, but you'll need 4WD. Work with Liz ahead of time and she'll find you an alternative."
