  • Quinta Sonada, A sweet time on the sweet Gulf.

    "Staying at Quinta Sonada was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica.This place is exactly how it is described.You are situated right on the beach .My wife and i spent ten nights just hanging around and just enjoying Gods creation.Beautiful grounds,lots of birds,monkeys,and just a very relaxing time,nice breezes.We were there in Febuary,and we had no rain,and it was very warm.We would go swimming every morning and afternoon.We enjoyed swimming at Tomales beach and right in front of the house.The beach in the front has a rocky beach and water sandals are advised,but it is not a real problem to keep you from just walking out the door for a swim.The caretakers,Jose,Eliatha,and Joselito are there if you need anything.We had Eleatha cook us many dinners that were just great.The house is on a very good well,with good safe drinking water.There is a good fridge that keeps everything cold,and a good stove for cooking.Chris has the place stocked real nice with lots of books and cds .There is a couple Kayaks to take out which i did.When staying at Chris's place you have the option of heading out to explore the area or to just hang.We loved just hanging out and enjoying the place.We had no problem with mosquito's,but you should bring some citronella candles or coils just in case,Chris the owner is very easy to work.To sum it up the place is exactly as it is advertised and you will not be disappointed."

  • The perfect snowbird vacation

    "From the moment of our arrival, we knew we were in for a vacation treat. The bungalow was in a quiet section of the community and yet we were minutes away from the pool, beach or road into town. The bungalow was well appointed and we enjoyed making it our home away from home for a month. The master bedroom was spacious and had a nice closet with plenty of hangers and a chest of drawers that was ample for all our clothes. The master bath was lovely and had lots of space to store our personal items. We enjoyed how close we were to downtown Hermosa and walked into town to enjoy breakfast or lunch. We also walked down to the Hotel Tramondo and they have excellent food and service there as well. Our manager, Brian, was always friendly and took care of any questions or problems satisfactorily for us. We rented a car from Brian and used it to do lots of sightseeing up and down the coast. The community pool and lanai were perfect and we enjoyed many card games at the table under the lanai. In the evenings, we enjoyed watching DVD movies provided for us...several of which we had never seen before. We would recommend this beautiful bungalow and location to anyone wanting to relax, enjoy the ocean, and be centrally located to sight see the area."

  • Caught a TON of Sailfish with Diablo Sportfishing while Staying at Jungle Mountain Bungalow

    "My 6 day visit (2/18 - 2/23) was set up to assess Costa Rica as a final destination for this retired marine biologist and especially its offshore big game fishing situation. As someone who has fished all over the world (see www.BigMarineFish.com), I had selected CR as the best potential spot for my retirement and I was not disappointed! I also chose to stay at the Jungle Mountain Bungalows, owned by Capt. Kevin Malone and his wonderful wife, Alyson, to see what living up high in that less developed part of CR might be like. You can see from their website’s photos that the bungalows are really nice, stocked with everything you might need, bathed by cool breezes each evening (no AC needed up there on the mountain), surrounded by virtually pristine tropical rainforest (CR has the greatest biodiversity of any place in the world), unspoiled yet largely un-populated beaches along the beautiful coast, with dramatic sunset views of the Pacific from the bungalows’ porches. Idyllic. Driving up and down the mountain (4x4 required) was an adventure in itself. Kevin Malone is a top notch charter captain, extremely skilled in all the little details of big game fishing (such as rigging ballyhoo baits to look to a sailfish as if it were a real swimming baitfish) that make all the difference between just a nice boat ride vs. a day filled with the best fishing one could possibly enjoy (as I experienced with him, twice). The night before, we had decided to target sailfish offshore on my two days, so we got up early and Kevin drove his center console about 25 miles across a choppy Pacific to an underwater mountain known as the Furuno Bank where we fished both days. On day 1 we raised 9 sailfish and brought 7 to the boat to be fully revived prior to their release – which I viewed as an extremely good day’s outing. But he topped that performance the following day, going 9 for 11. These sailfish are big, 7 to 8 feet long and ours were about 90 to 125 lbs – more than twice as large as those I’ve caught in the Florida Keys – and since they spend a lot of energy jumping, sailfish are spectacular to fight. Ours usually took about 20-25 minutes to finally bring close enough for Kevin to grab their bill and remove the circle hook before release. On day 2, I had 30 minutes left on my charter “clock” but told Kevin to just “head for the barn” as I was exhausted and had had enough. All told, our sailfish would have added up to about 2,000 lbs! Can’t imagine better fishing."
