“The Place is Amazing!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My family of 6 just got back from Costa Rica. We stayed 4 of our 8 days at “The Sunset”. We had an amazing time there. Patrick and his wife Lisa were very friendly and accommodating. Lisa cooked our breakfast every morning and they were delicious. Every morning there is coffee, a beautiful fruit plate, a meat of some sort, and either waffles, pancakes, French toast, etc. She offered to make us a traditional Costa Rican breakfast, and we decided to have that the last day. It was amazing!! I’m so glad she asked us!! There is a housekeeper that comes every day, which is also really nice. She does a really good job. Every morning after breakfast Patrick came over and helped us plan our day. We came in the rainy season, so we knew weather could be iffy. Our first full day there it was pouring and Patrick was able to suggest some things to do in an area that it wasn’t raining. Not only did he suggest these excursions, he called them to check the weather and made our reservations for us every day.
The house is very clean and well maintained. Each room has it’s own air conditioner but the main areas don’t have one. I was worried at first since the temps were in the 90s but ended up never missing a/c. Each door has a screen as well as the windows. We would open some up every morning and be completely comfortable. Each room has it’s own bathroom, which is great when everyone is trying to get out of the door. The bedding is clean and the mattresses are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and also very clean. My only disappointment is that we weren’t able to see the majestic view until the day we were leaving because of the weather. I’m glad we got to see it because it was spectacular. I highly suggest staying here and if we return to Costa Rica we will definitely choose “The Sunset”.

This place was perfect. Luxurious retreat, ample room,its library, beautiful grounds, indoor heated pool and hot tub, a dream come true. Patrick the proprietor was the perfect host with fine breakfasts and tips on touring the spectacular countryside of Lake Arenal. Highly recommend!

“Not too good to be true!”

We have been traveling in CR for seven weeks and have rented eight houses during this time. When we first came across Red Sunset on Tripadvisor we thought it looked and sounded too good for the price they we asking compared to other houses we rented. Long story short - the house, pool, view, food and service are all excellent and worth a lot more than Patrick (the owner, host and chef) charges. I mentioned this to him and he said they choose to keep the price low to keep the occupancy level high - which it is. If you are fortunate enough to get a reservation, you will be completely satisfied.

“Amazing Home, Location & Hosts. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our group of 5 stayed at the Red Sunset for a week in early February 2016 and had a wonderful experience. The home is simply perfect for a group with plenty of space for all to either be together in the common areas or to find a quiet place to relax. The weather was awesome and the location is up high so there were wonderful breezes and when we were there no need for AC which was a nice surprise. The views of the lake, mountains and sunsets are outstanding and the separate building housing a large indoor pool and hot tub made for great ends to every evening. But the absolute best part of the entire experience was our host Patrick and his lovely wife. Every morning they prepared a custom breakfast with many items from their own garden and fresh eggs from their chickens. The fresh fruit smoothies were outstanding too and made with freshly picked pineapples, cantaloupes and bananas. On the night of my birthday we asked Patrick to make dinner and he outdid himself by preparing fresh tilapia tacos with fish taken from his pond on the property. Can’t get any fresher than this! Dinner was followed by a chocolate lava cake that was to die for. The next best part of our stay were the recommendations we received from Patrick on what to do and where to go (and where not to go). Each morning Patrick would visit us after breakfast was cleared away and ask what we wanted to do that day. Then he would provide great recommendations and even drew a map for us each day showing where we might want to go and eat based on the input from our group. This was completely unexpected and added greatly to our trip as he guided us to places and restaurants that we would have otherwise never found. Our stay at the Red Sunset was simply amazing and we all would go back again in a heartbeat. Thank you Patrick for an amazing experience!!!
