Labours of Love!!! Both your “Labours of Love” are more stunning than any photograph can do them justice! We stayed in both. The artful décor and design of both houses is a credit to your talent and taste. The proximity to the beach while ensconced in a lush tropical private paradise is truly Pura Vida, the best of both worlds.                                                                                                                                      (Herb R.  March 2016)


If I Could, I Would Buy This Place! From the moment we walked through the gate we knew we had found the perfect vacation spot. We two couples each had our own beautiful house separated by a tropical courtyard and inviting pool. The open layouts of the houses, with vaulted ceilings and original artwork all around, all contributed to our feeling of being in a very special place. The fresh fish bought at the local market, that we cooked on the outdoor grill, and ate on the large, front porch, under the cooling fans, made our first stay in Costa Rica unforgettable. The friendly iguana that we fed by hand, the birds that delighted us in the morning, and the frogs that trilled as the sun went down, let us know that we were in a tropical paradise. The only downside to this vrbo was that we had a hard time leaving the premises to embark on other adventures. A great secluded getaway in the heart of Jaco.  (Stayed March 2012)

Sonidos del Mar Rocks!!! We spent two weeks at Sonidos Del Mar and it was truly amazing. The property and location was perfect in every way. We will be going back and will be renting here again. (November 2014) Ty; Leadville, Colorado

Sonidos Del Mar is the best. My friends and I rented both houses at Sonidos Del Mar for a full week. The house was absolutely perfect for our needs. It was only steps from the beach. It had the right amout of privacy and seclusion, but we could also walk down the beach to the main shopping area or take a $3.00 cab ride if we didn't feel like walking. Prior to booking Sonidos, I searched for several months to find the right house and could not find anything remotely close in value. Both the owner and the caretaker were extremely accomodating. The house was clean and cozy. You will not regret booking at Sonidos.
