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!

Awesome place for a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Peak is a great vacation spot for anyone that is considering traveling to Nosara. It sits high up in the hills overlooking Playa Guiones. The house is spacious with a large kitchen, and 3 good sized bedrooms plus a loft – in addition to the 2 cabinas outside the house. We rented Sunset Peak with 2 families (12 people in total – 7 adults and 5 kids) and there was more than enough room for all. But the outside living area and pool are what really sets this place apart. The views are spectacular – we all loved sitting out by the pool in the morning for coffee or afternoon for cocktails, or enjoying an evening swim – the pool was perfect temperature, clean and always refreshing. Jon, the property manager, was fantastic and made the vacation even better by helping to set up activities and reservations for dinner – and even took us on a hike up a waterfall one afternoon. We also had Olen cook for us for a few dinners and breakfasts while we were there. She was great – the food was excellent, fresh and there were always plenty of leftovers. In addition, Luis the owner, was terrific. He gave us several recommendations that were really helpful, especially for those who have not been to Nosara before – and was very responsive. All in all – the vacation was amazing. Weather was great and Sunset Peak was fantastic but the people we dealt with for Sunset Peak made the vacation even better and truly made it a trip to remember. We will definitely be coming back to Nosara again and Sunset Peak will no doubt be our first choice!!

Tremendous view!!!

  • 4 of 5

The view from Sunset Peak is tremendous! The grounds and outdoor living areas are wonderful and are where the favorite parts of our vacation were spent. Especially when the monkeys came to visit and the beautiful sunsets! Jon was so helpful with making reservations and giving recommendations. Olen, the chief made many wonderful meals. I appreciated not having to cook or clean and experiencing authentic foods!

Most Tranquil Place on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Peak is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in. The view from the pool is something you would see in a magazine. The service and hospitality from the staff was just amazing. We were treated like family from the beginning. I would only stay here when I return to Nosara there is no other place that could compare. The resort was quaint, clean and very roomy. Can't wait to return!

The most amazing location and rental in Nosara, Playa Guiones!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin... We were immediately enchanted as soon as we arrived at Sunset Peak. The beauty of this place is very difficult to describe or compare to anything else. It is visually mesmerizing...from the never-ending, breathtaking views of the surrounding areas and ocean, to the very detail inside and outside of each one of the houses.... Every bedroom is spacious, decorated beautifully and very cozy/comfortable. The living area is super cool, colorful, with tons of room for people to enjoy either being in their own space or to have a good time with company. The kitchen is really fun to be in, it is equipped with everything a person needs to cook, clean, etc. The bathrooms are just beautiful, decorated with gorgeous tile, fun waterfall showers and lots of space. The pool area is incredible and my kids used it as soon as they would wake up, and again until it was time for bed. The pool area is clean and absolutely beautiful, surrounded with gardens full of colorful various plants, and flowers attracting all kinds of birds, butterflies, and other beautiful creatures. The seating area outdoors is crafted to perfection, comfortable and it has plenty of interesting spots for people to sit/lay and just observe the amazing nature of this location. It is seriously the most amazing place we have ever seen, with possibly the most beautiful vistas you can imagine. The way the property is situated, there is no obstruction to enjoy an endless panorama and spectacular, ever-changing views. The beach is literary down the mountain, just a few minutes drive, maybe 5 minutes. The beaches around are amazing, they each have their own uniqueness and fabulous restaurants, or sodas to eat at. We really enjoyed La Luna, and we ate breakfast at The Coffee House/True Love each morning. The town has so much to offer, and the Harmony Hotel, and The Living Hotel had some great eating options as well, and they are open to non-guests. We really recommend some of the Sodas (below Restaurant status eateries), located all around to enjoy some local food. Last but not least, the owners of the rental are some of the most amazing people we had the privilege to work with and we love them. The manager and the hired staff of the house are very professional, trustworthy, and went out of their way to always make sure we were good at all times, and well taken care of. I will recommend this rental to everyone I know, and we look forward to visiting there again, very, very soon. Thank you!

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.
