  • Honeymoon in paradise!

    "Staying in this treehouse was a dream come true. My husband and I have always wanted a treehouse, so to stay in one in the middle of the jungle on our honeymoon was amazing. It is so cozy and comfortable. It gives you a home away from home feel, but in the trees! The family was so nice and welcoming. You are surronded by beautiful jungle and you are just a walk from the beach. We loved hanging out in the private pool watching the monkeys in the trees. We would totally go back! Maybe someday when we have kids! Kids would have a lot of fun I'm sure!"

  • Magical March House

    "I was hoping to tell you this in person, but our paths did not cross before we left your beautiful home. Your home felt enchanted with vibrant spiritual energy. Everything about it invited peace and restfulness. I and all our family loved it! The landscaping beautifully flowed from deck, to lawn, to the beach with trees that swayed in the warm breezes. The seclusion of not having other homes nearby and therefore just enjoying the quiet or the sound of busy monkeys swinging in the trees made for a most relaxing vacation. Often when we went to your beach, we were the only ones there. How nice! My husband and I had the master bedroom and could look out at the stars at night. It felt like luxury living outdoors. In the main living area, we loved having the big doors open and being able to sit anywhere inside and have a beautiful view. Honestly we couldn’t have been happier with every aspect of your home. Melba and her helper were super. They kept the house super clean, made sure that all the dishes were done and that we had plenty of beach towels etc. It was also a treat to not have to think about dinners and we appreciated Aaron’s great cooking. Thank you for referring him to us. And thank you for sharing this very special home with us. I DO hope we can return one day."

  • Paradise Getaway

    "My wife and I wanted to get away from New York for a week and this house was the perfect getaway. It was secluded from the bustle of the main road so the privacy and quiet on the hill was perfect. The house and a huge kitchen (fridge/cutlery/etc) that we could cook in when we wanted to stay in, yet was a short drive to the restaurants we wanted to go to when we felt like dining out. Belen (property manager) was extremely helpful with suggestions of where to go and even gave us a guide before we arrived. About the house? Where to start - the best view you could ever ask for. Perfect infinity pool, lounge chairs to read and drink and actually get away from it all. My wife and I did our own yoga sessions on the deck built (I believe) specifically for it, and there was mats already available which was convenient as we had forgotten ours. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, and there was an awesome living room/common space we used to play cards and lounge when we were tired from surfing. One of the main things we wanted to do was go zip lining and Belen let us know (she emailed quickly by email) that there was a place just down the road and let us know how to get there. The house was perfectly hidden away from the main tourist hub for seclusion, privacy, and a sense of quiet we wanted, yet close enough to all the things we wanted from a Costa Rica trip. We ended up eating at quite a few hotels as they had recommendations of good food/views etc, but the honestly staying at Villa Sunset Hill ended up being the best view and accommodations we saw the entire week. Would highly recommend to both couples and larger groups/family retreats. Thanks again for a great week for my wife's birthday vacation. Pure vida!"

  • Amazing...did I mention how Amazing?

    "First let me state that I have used many rentals through some sort of Rental by owner website and Daniel is by the far the most helpful, patient and kind owner we have rented from thus far. Though we were not able to meet him (booo, I wanted to thank him in person) he is a fantastic host. Thank you for everything. Now to the Villa, the pictures do not do this place justice. We rented this home to be the location for our 10-year wedding anniversary/vow renewal ceremony and I'm so glad I didn't go with a modern/Hollywood style beach home. This is pure Costa Rican Art/Architecture. We are spending 7 days here (yes still here) and our group( 5 adults) is simply amazed by this home. The pictures cannot show how large and beautiful each bedroom is, the staircase leading to each bedroom is something you would see out of a movie. Each bedroom has a private bath and shower, plus there is one on the lower level by the outdoor shower for when you are spending time by the pool or cooking in the kitchen. I am an avid cook and the kitchen was amazing. I was very impressed with the high quality cuisinart pots and pans with a layer of copper heat distribution. This is a major plus for those who love to cook. The views are amazing from all angles. You fall asleep to the sounds of various birds and awake to the howler monkeys in the distance. You will be visited by iguanas, bats, and insects but don't be discouraged..It's all part of being surrounded by jungle. Please be diligent with the compost bucket and garbage can. His property is beautiful with amazing tropical plants plus a greenhouse and the compost is needed. The hill to the house is beyond steep but we rented ATVs from Pacific Dirt Roads and had no problems going up the driveway in 2nd or 3rd gear. Lola and Carlos are wonderful staff and you will be truly amazed by this home, host, staff, the residential dogs who would followed me everywhere (Ray) especially, and the views. Please book..You will not be disappointed. One last thing, if you are worried about no AC, don't..being on a hill, with massive windows and the fans will keep you cool all night and sleep like a baby. Thank you again Daniel for everything, you and your home are both truly amazing. Pura Vida!!!"
