The Property

Enter Sunset House and discover the treasures of one of Tamarindo’s true luxury rental gems. Designed by renowned San Diego, California architect Steve Adams, built by Flor del Pacifico/Jeff Hutton - the top custom home builder in the area – and decorated by Mu Design, Sunset House mixes elements of tropical architecture and contemporary finishes with an ultra-luxury design approach.

Situated in the beach town of Tamarindo, this spectacular property overlooks the breathtaking waters of the Pacific Ocean. As its name suggests, Sunset House is the perfect spot to take in the beautiful Guanacaste sunsets.

Delight in the villa’s indoor/outdoor tropical living plan which showcases five elegant bedrooms and an infinity pool that wraps around expansive entertaining platforms along with breathtaking views of the ocean and the estuary. Sunset House sleeps a total of 14 guests and it is an ideal luxury retreat for families and private and corporate groups.

Included in your rental are a full-time maid to keep the house clean and tidy during your stay and a full-time caretaker for cleaning and maintenance. Our onsite Property Manager, Francisco Bustos, will be available to address any issues that may arise during your stay.

We have an excellent local chef available for preparing delicious lunches and dinners at Sunset House so you can relax and enjoy Costa Rica the way it is meant to be enjoyed! This additional service includes the preparation, service and clean up after. Food cost is not included, but we can organize grocery shopping for you, so you have one less thing to worry about! In case our chef is not available for your stay, we will refer you to other great options.
