We loved our stay at Sonidos Del Mar! The south end of the beach is less crowded and one block away was perfect. We could hear the waves but the privacy of the house is ideal. The property and house are amazingly beautiful with everything you need. The architectural touches of curved walls, inset handmade tiles and glass, exotic wood, original paintings and the waterfall in the pool were much appreciated.  (Julie January 2017)

We spent two weeks here in February, and I cannot tell you how hard it was for us to leave!!! Best vacation ever! (James Feb 2016)

Magical! We don't even know where to start!  By far this was one of the best vacations we have taken as a family.  We spent the 2nd week of our holiday at Sonidos del Mar and it was magical.  The location to the beach and town were a perfect walking distance.  Also, great surfing (and lessons) right there!  The house itself is more than we ever expected.  Absolutely beautifully designed and decorated.  We tended to hang out there quite a bit and "reconnected" with our 2 college girls.  There is something about listening to tree frogs, birds and crashing waves from your veranda that brings people together.  Cooking on the grill daily also was such a convenience.  Jan was wonderful with helping us with anything we needed.  She was just a phone call away.  We are looking forward to coming back to Costa Rica and Sonidos del Mar in the future.

Pura Vida!!!!! This was hands down the best vacation I've ever taken. I have fallen in love with Jaco, Costa Rica, and with Sonidos del mar. The property is just perfect, everything is spectacular from the inside of the house to the outside. The beach is literally a 10 second walk from the house, You can hear the waves from the house. I loved waking up every morning to the sound of birds singing, the sun shinning, and drinking my coffee sitting outside while the exotic lizards and iguanas bask in the sun just a few feet away. There is so much to do in Jaco that i don't even know where to begin, we went fishing, zip lining, ATV riding, and surfing. The main strip is about a 5 min drive away, This house is perfectly located really close to town yet you still feel like your away from everything when your in Sonidos del mar since its so private. Jan was so nice and helpful, she is an amazing person! The only complain or moment i felt bad was when I had to pack up and leave Sonidos and Jaco behind. I did not want to come back lol, I can't wait to go back to Jaco and Sonidos del mar! Pura Vida!!! (Stayed May 2015)

Perfect Paradise! My husband, twin brother and sister-in-law stayed at your beautiful home(s) last week.  The pictures do not do justice.  The place (or compound, as we quickly called it) far exceeded our expectations.  The design of the house is so unique and beautiful,and the decor is obviously created by an artist.  The attention to detail made this lovely place even more special. The private pool was perfect for us and very well- maintained.  Everything was clean, comfortable and inviting.  We didn't want to leave, we want to return, and we would buy the place if we could afford it!  Thank you for our best vacation yet!
