Awesome Property - Santa Teresa Area
This is property had the most amazing views! It had the hills with the ocean in the background. My wife, daughter & niece commented on how much they liked this over a resort. We actually spent quality time at the house because it was so relaxing and peaceful. Easy access to the strip and beaches in Santa Teresa, too. As well, we really liked the house keeper. She kept the place looking great and and an absolute pleasure to interact with.
The house is set up nice is clean and in a good location, a 20 minute rough ride through the hills from Santa Teresa, we were a little surprised that the house did not have any condiments of any kind, no pepper, spices, mustard, usually when you look in the pantry you'll find something. We had to buy everything we needed. The house was cleaned by a very nice cleaning lady daily. Overall we were very happy with this house and the property.
Thank you for your review. Our property manager has been made aware of your comment. In the future she will make sure simple dry condiments are stocked. Our property manager is incredibly accommodating and can be contacted with any inquiries during your stay.
Stunningly beautiful and peaceful location.
We absolutely loved the house and location. It is very peaceful and we spent many nights having a drink, watching the sunset and using the BBQ. It was the best feeling coming back from the busy Santa Teresa or the beach and have this place to relax. We really enjoyed the light breeze as well as it kept the air fresh. You will have to commit to a 15 min drive to get to the house from the main road and you will need 4x4 but once up there it is all worth it. There is another house right next to this one and 2 more on the same street so it has the feeling of a small community and felt safe as well. Th pool is amazing and the open plan living room really lets you enjoy the great view, a lot of green, flowers, birds, butterflies and howler monkeys. We also had the occasional spider and even a scorpion in the house, but we were surrounded by jungle so I suppose this is okay to occur.
The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen we have experienced through airbnb/homeaway. It was an absolutely pleasure preparing meals as we had everything we needed and more! Everything in the house functioned perfectly and the finishing touches are great, you can see the owners have put great effort in making it comfortable. Great water pressure in the shower as well and enough hot water. The beds were super comfy and the towels were very nice quality. Super fast internet was an awesome perk as well. I will suggest an outdoor fixed light close to the BBQ tho.
The lady on site (Janette) did an incredible job of taking care of the house as well, our experience would have not been the same without her.
This was one of our best rental experiences and we will definitely be back!
Gorgeous Vacation Destination
My family, myself, my husband and 2 kids ages 9 and 12, stayed at the sunset in August for a week and had a fabulous time. The drive to the house is approximately 15 minutes from the main road and definitely requires 4 wheel drive. The house was BEAUTIFUL with a fully stocked kitchen. It had everything you'd ever need to make amazing meals. We BBQ'd every evening and spend our days relaxing in the pool and playing cards. I did yoga at pranamar yoga which was about a 20 minute drive and the studio was gorgeous. The howler monkeys were on a tree in the front yard one morning. It was amazing to listen to them howling. Jeanette who lives nearby was AMAZING. She cleaned and did our laundry daily. She even left fresh flowers. Soraya was always a call away and helped with planning activities and places to eat. I highly recommend this house if your looking for a luxury vacation spot and don't mind being off the beaten path. The time spent at this house is something we will always treasure!
Great House and Great View
Taking into mind 4 wheel drive and slight drive from Santa Teresa town, this place was well worth the trip. The property managers were wonderfully helpful and the caretaker was a very kind lady. We were well taken care of even with a lot of rain. We will be returning someday.
Most relaxing vacation ever!
I am torn between saying the complete truth - simply amazing - to honour the owner and the caretaking team and not providing any review simply to keep the casa a secret place for myself!
I love Costa Rica anywhere, anyway, however Sunset House offered the perfect blend of understated luxury, pure vistas and jungleness that gave our holiday a zen like quality. The casa is immaculate and the lovely caretaker took perfect care of us!
We never visit the same area twice, however we are already planning our return!
