Guestbook comments from the manager

Sunset Peak provided my family and I a chance to bond and reconnect. The property is massive and great for group gatherings but also affords privacy with a main house and independent cabinas. Exceeded my expectations as the ocean view from the pool area is stunning.

Unbelievable Ocean Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented Sunset Peak for our annual vacation - we had a blast! The owner was great in prepping us for the trip and Jon, the prop mgr, helped us with everything we needed once onsite.

The property is massive and has all kinds of places to explore - the house is beautiful and also has a great rancho to be outside but still shaded. My favorite part of the property is the pool area, which has beautiful coralina stone around it. The pool is salt water which my family loved and there is a great pool bar and shaded area to look at the great view.

This house would be great for a family of 4 or for a group of 15!

Wonderful location and service

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 had an amazing time at Sunset Peak. Jon was an amazing host and spent many hours helping us arrange food, on site massage, surfing lessons and more.

The houses and grounds are wonderful. We were surrounded by beauty and animals and could barely stand to leave to experience the rest that Costa Rica has to offer. Warm sun with dozens of places to escape in the shade during the day and cool ocean winds at night kept us completely comfortable at all times and barely needing to use the ac in our bedrooms. Highly recommend.

Sunset Peak , Nosara

  • 4 of 5

My group and I really enjoyed our time at SP , the separate "cabannas" rooms below the pool deck were a +++ , the main house was not used to the full capacity and was very comfortable. We used the kitchen a lot , a real benefit , we were lucky to have a very proficient cook with us in our group. Good/great evening breeze thru the house , view from the pool deck is great. Jon was great to work with , very responsive and genuine. Most definitely will stay here again !!!

Suggestions- install window stops and a latch/catch for these very large and beautiful windows , lots of air flow but no way to secure when the wind gusts. Add some more pool /lounge chairs. Ice maker for the pool bar.

Beautiful view of Playa Guiones and great house

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Nosara with a group of friends - mixed group of adults and children.

Upon arriving at Sunset Peak it became apparent we made a great choice on where to stay. The pool area is huge with a crazy beautiful view of Playa Guiones.

We had a chef prepare meals everyday and Jon the property manager was great with arranging excursions and adventures for us to do. The property had howler monkeys hanging in the trees and all kinds of fruit trees to explore and pick from.

We are going to come back in a few months we had so much fun.

The Place to stay in Nosara

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional property in an excellent location. The property itself is expansive with a main house, and two additional separate detached and private living spaces. A staff of maintenance personnel kept the pool clean, and the landscaping tidy.

John arranged for a local chef to prepare breakfast daily. The food and service were fantastic. It was the perfect start to each of our days.

John was an exceptional host. He was always reachable and responded in a timely manner. John is a master of making arrangements for any and all activities. The property was exceptional, and John was second to none with his hospitality and service.

Extremely welcoming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing, relaxing and adventurous vacation we have ever been on by far. Everyone you meet is extremely friendly and go out of their way to make sure you experience everything you wish while in Costa Rica. Jonathan made our trip so relaxing and stress-free from scheduling the shuttle, having rental cars delivered, arranging activities with amazing people and always being available to answer our silly tourist questions. Jonathan even made sure to make us reservations for a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olive Riddley Sea Turtles laying their eggs on the beach. We would definitely come back and stay here. There is so much more to see and do!

Playa guiones
Car: necessary

A two acre private property perched perfectly atop the peak of the Las Huacas hillside. This location provides Sunset Peak with a certain seclusion and breathtaking view, yet also sets it just a stones throw from the action and beaches of Guiones. The property consists of a spacious, 3 bedroom & 2 bathroom main house with connected open-air rancho leading out to an extra large swimming pool surrounded by Bali style daybeds. In front of this sits an outdoor bar and covered patio where guests can enjoy the unbelievable view of the Pacific Ocean and jungle coastline. Below this are a double and single cabina and plenty of lush garden areas to explore. Hear the waves of the ocean and see the monkeys swinging in the treetops, without ever having to leave your lounge chair.

Whether you are looking for action or to wind down and relax, there is plenty to choose from in town. There are many bars and restaurants, serving up Costa Rican, American, Spanish, Mexican and Japanese cuisine. There are horseback tours, ziplining, quad rentals and surfing for the adventurous at heart. For those who want a slower pace, there are plenty of yoga studios, spas, juice bars, beautiful beaches to lay out on, and gorgeous sunsets to end the day.

Traveling as a family? There is mini golf and ice cream/gelato to keep the kiddies happy!

Whatever your interests are, Nosara has something to please everyone.
