  • 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."

  • Wonderful outdoor living

    "My husband, son and I stayed at the Pool House for three days in October. The outdoor area is where we spent our time and it was amazing. The house is private and in a great location. Gini was great to work with in spite of troubles with the VRBO website. We would definitely book again. Wish we could have stayed longer."

  • Perfect for a multi-generational family!

    "We had such a wonderful time at Sundown! The highlights of our stay were: -staying in a house together was perfect for a family of all ages. We traveled with ages 1 to 81 and the convenience of being together while still allowing everyone to maintain their own schedule was priceless. - Chef Norman was extremely accommodating and kind. He made amazing meals and made sure to fix the children's dinners early at whatever time we specified. We were able to pick any food we could think of for him to make but by the second day, we realized that we should just let him decide and prepare whatever he thought we would enjoy. And it was delicious!! - Housekeeping. Veronica was so sweet! She was mostly busy with our laundry, beds, etc and it was so nice to have freshly washed clothes every day. She picked up around the house as well but this could have been better. I thought the house would be kept as clean as a hotel with dirty dishes constantly picked up, etc but I would see the same toys, dishes,games out for hours after we were done with them. Butlers - this feature was one we were really looking forward to. We expected to be waited on nonstop as you are in a resort and expected the enthusiasm and excitement from them to pump everyone up and create a fun atmosphere. It is important to know that the butlers were wonderful for setting up our tables for meals and would help us if asked. Dujon was very sweet and responded quickly and happily to our requests. He would take us out on the hobie cat, bring drinks for the kids, etc when requested. But we were under the impression from other reviews that the butlers will proactively offer to take the kids on the canoe, surprise us with fresh cookies and lemonade for the kids and other snacks for the adults, be creative and enthusiastic about coming up with fun games with us. This was not the case. It was more of a reactive response to help us, which you may be fine with. Trisha was our other Butler. She was the only negative of our trip. Her responses were short and often rude when we asked her for anything. She was not very friendly and did not smile much. Im not sure if she was tired or had personal issues going on, but her attitude was not acceptable. We made sweet memories! Dana was an incredible coordinator from the start!! It was beautiful, no cooking, laundry, etc was great and the accessibility to pool, beautiful beach was amazing!!! Food was delicious! We are so rested and happy! Thank you Sundown!!"

  • 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."
