About Sari Henley

Hotel Byblos and Casa Sarita owners who enjoy travel, and adventure. We are a relatively active couple who have set our feet as firmly in Manuel Antonio as in Austin, Texas where are kids and grandkids live. Davis is an avid motorcycle rider who rode his BMW from Austin, TX to Ushuaia, Argentina. Sari is content to spend time on the beach, or stay behind with kids and grandkids. She did ride on the back from Santiago, Chili to Ushuaia, and then on to Buenos Aires. Summer finds them in Northern Wisconsin where Sari's family has had a cabin for 65 years.

Sari Henley purchased this villa in 2014

Why Sari Henley chose Puntarenas

Rising Sun is located just five houses down from our beloved Casa Sarita. Davis was drawn to the property which needed an extensive renovation. The views were worth all the hard work he put in from May, 2014 to Christmas, 2014. It has turned out better than we ever dreamed, and we will enjoy our time here and sharing it with our clients.

What makes this villa unique

Full use of Byblos Hotel is included in all rentals at Rising Sun. The home has two separate buildings, so it is great for family reunions and also weddings. The large deck and bar area above the guest house are perfect for celebrations of any type with fabulous Pacific Views

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home and was more than advertised in all ways. We were a group of 8, 4 couples and had plenty of room and privacy. The property was clean and the staff was in every day cleaning the home and grounds. The views are 2nd to none from the home and pool. The monkeys that wondered through every day provided entertainment and great photos.

There are more quality restaurants in walking distance then we could visit in one week.

Melissa from Byblos set up our day trips, and all were top notch. The area has everything from nature walks in Manuel Antonio national park to zip lining, and white water rafting.

Rising Sun is about a 2.5 hr drive from San Jose airport, the drive was a chance to see the county, and It is a plus not a minus.

Sari it couldn't have been better! so fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent views everywhere! The location was private yet so close to everything. Loved the big pool and outdoor area. The monkeys were so much fun to watch daily as they foraged the forest. The view to the ocean and proximity to the beach was superb. I would go back to your place every chance I could!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!

Over the top beauty! The view, The House!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to visit Costa Rica again! The House of the Rising Sun was so beautiful in the photos it added to our anticipation for months before we arrived. This multi-level house does not disappoint! The Rising Sun was so beautiful, clean and welcoming! We settled in quickly and found that everything was there for us. The view is amazing, the home is spotless and equipped with everything you need (just add groceries!). We loved the pool and seeing monkeys, sloths and birds from our balconies and deck area. Janet and Wisten were there keeping everything perfect each day. The slide is so cool and fast! The cabana area, jacuzzi, pool, BBQ area was our living area for the most part. Cooking was fun with plenty of room for all 10 of us to pitch in for easy meals. Being associated with a resort made it easy to get taxis and plan our excursions too. BEST VACATION EVER!

Do not hesitate! Book It!

  • 5 of 5

Our Group of 10 (5 couples) had plenty of room in this fantastic villa. My husband and I stayed poolside in the top of the guest house. Every morning I watched the top of the trees for movement. The monkeys are here! So much fun to watch and what a way to wake up. The property was unlike anyplace we had stayed before. Spectacular views, excellent staff, concierge service, safe location, easy access to restaurants, all great! The restaurant recommendations were wonderful. The tours we booked picked us up at the house. The photos are not 1/2 as beautiful as the house. We had a tour upon arrival, chose our rooms and hit the pool. The stairs gave us a great work out every day. A once in a lifetime vacation we are planning to repeat next year!

Jungle Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Manuel Antonio for 3 days a few years back and we loved the area so much that we decided to bring a group of friends back in 2017 to share in the experience. Our group of 11 people stayed at the Rising Sun Villa for 11 nights and it could not have been more perfect. The house and grounds are beautiful, spacious, and very well-tended. With 11 people there was still more than enough room to have some privacy and enjoy the surroundings.

Sari was very helpful and available to us in our initial planning. This was the first time we’d travelled in such a large group and we spent a good deal of time trying to organize everything. Sari set us up with Oliver at the Hotel Byblos to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. Jeanette and Winston were wonderful and kept the house and grounds immaculate. We needed to have laundry done a few times due to the length of our stay and Jeanette took care of us; handling a few delicate items, we mistakenly left in the laundry, perfectly.

Every day was an amazing adventure. It was really like living in a jungle theme park. We would wake up nearly every morning at sunrise for bird watching, and the array of wildlife was spectacular. We would see Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, Blue Mot Mots, and the local Kiskadees along with many birds we could not easily identify. Each day would bring a new troop of monkeys to the house including Capuchins, Ti Tis, and Howlers. The Capuchins especially were very mischievous but always entertaining. We were also visited by a three toed sloth who took up residence in the bamboo forest off the terrace for a day.

We enjoyed trips to the local beaches, hiking through the national park, shopping and eating in the local center, as well as just relaxing at the house and in the pool. Our group also went zip lining in Jaco and deep sea fishing where we caught 4 Sailfish and a large Mahi Mahi. The Mahi provided us with dinner for 2 nights using the outside grill on the terrace. The Hotel Byblos restaurant and bar, as well as the other local restaurants, were all very good and provided us with more than enough variety. I also have to mention the local Café Milagro and their freshly roasted coffee.

It is not an exaggeration to say that this was the trip of a lifetime for everyone in our group. The Rising Sun Villa is a magical place in the heart of a very active tropical paradise.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at Rising Sun. Each day really does bring a new adventure, as we never know what may be wandering through the jungle surrounding the villa. Sloths, monkeys, and the occasional lizard are just part of our daily lives, and we love sharing it with our guests. Please come back again! Sari & Davis

I love this Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I booked a house in another country so I was a bit nervous. VRBO and Sari the owner made it really easy. Firstly, the Villa is simply beautiful. It is clean, in great shape and has spectacular views everywhere. The surrounding foliage give you a lot of privacy as well. There was plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and the bathrooms were top notch. We loved the rain shower in the master bath!

Sari helped us out quite a bit. She put us in touch with the Hotel Byblos who help maintain the house. I had them stock groceries and adult beverages for our arrival. The delivery fee was $3. Instant party once we arrived as we had plenty of snacks, wine and cheese that were needed after a long trip. Byblos helped set up trips such as fishing, zip-lines, ATV tours, snorkeling etc. and they picked us up right at the Villa.

We chose to hire a chef on two occasions which turned out to be cheaper than restaurants. They were polite, cooked wonderfully and charged us for their services and the groceries they had to purchase. We also grilled a lot as the hut on the patio had a grill that Wiston (the Caretaker) cleaned every morning. I even asked him if it was a new grill but it was not. He cleaned this thing until it looked new every time and believe me, I left it quite a mess several times. Jannette the house keeper was wonderful. Everything was cleaned each day which was wonderful for all of us. It really was a vacation with little clean-up to do each day.

We learned that the Government of Costa Rica puts up ropes over streets so the monkeys do not get injured on the electrical lines. Some of these lines are close to the house. It was wonderful to see the monkeys come through several times a day. We had a clan of Capuchins, Squirrel (titi) and Howler Monkeys come by on a regular basis. We began to recognize some with babies and missing tails. It was the highlight of each day and more than we saw the the National Park. The TV even had the Patriots game on! Football in paradise.

What a great area and a great Villa! It was hard to leave!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Rising Sun. We are so fortunate to have the great staff backing us up both at Byblos Hotel and Jeanette and Wiston. We always think we have a new grill when we get here also! Hope to see you again in Puravidaville! Sari & Davis

Pacific Rim Canyon is the premier private gated community off the main road connecting Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. The home offers spectacular 180 degree ocean views in a jungle setting and regular visits from a variety of monkey species, yet is only 200 meters walking distance to the majority of the area's upscale dining and amenities, or bus stop. Playa Espadilla, aka Manuel Antonio, is located approximately 1 mile from Rising Sun. Playa Manuel Antonio has been listed as one of the Top Beaches in the World by Fodors, Trip Advisor, and other publications. The smaller, more private beach in the area, Playa Biesanz, is located about 1 mile from Rising Sun on the Mariposa Hotel Road. The Mariposa Hotel is listed in the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die. You'll want to go there for a sunset and check that off the list.
