The whole Team at Sunset Designers did a fabulous job. They were on time, courteous, and answered all of our questions we had moving forward with our project. John Zahn, the owner, was always easy to get a hold of and he had great ideas to pull the whole project together in the end. We will definitely use them in future on any other projects we might have.

My wife and I hired Sunset Designers and Builders to completely remodel our backyard. The project involved refurbishing our original pool that was built in 1957, adding a spa, new concrete decking, BBQ island/outdoor kitchen, deck/planter drains, fire pit, sitting wall, landscaping and yard lights. We are 100% happy with Sunset and glad we went with them over the other bidders. They are honest, timely, communicate openly and quickly and continue to drop by and check in on our backyard. We highly recommend Sunset.

We wanted to thank you for the wonderful landscaping job you completed at our home. It turned out better than we could have imagined! With your help, we expanded the living space at our home by the size of the backyard. It is so livable and enjoyable! We spend more time than ever in the backyard relaxing and enjoying it all. We are constantly complimented on the beauty of the front yard by neighbors and passersby. During the job, it was great getting to know you and your crew. We appreciated how you were open to our ideas and incorporated some changes to the design during the job, even incorporating some non-landscape elements (like the doggy door, which Lenni uses frequently)! Every one of your crew was professional, courteous, hard-working, and helpful. We very much appreciated Luis and his expertise and work ethic. He is worth his weight in gold! Your creativity and expertise of design, positive attitude, and keen attention to detail are outstanding and greatly appreciated! Your crew not only did expeditious, but outstanding work. We would hire you again in a heartbeat and would gladly recommend Sunset Designers and Builders to anyone seeking a top-notch landscape and outdoor living area at their home. Please feel free to have your prospective clients come by or give them our contact information, if they would like a reference.

John built our pool quickly, efficiently and on budget. There were no surprises. He also followed up on a couple of small repairs a year after building our pool. Great service!

Sunset Designers and Builders led by John Zahn did a great job of executing our plans for our back yard spa and hardscape. The work was performed in a professional manner and it is beautiful! John communicated with us consistently through the job and has responded to our questions promptly after completion as well. I have been involved in the building materials business for 25 years and have dealt with many contractors so I know projects frequently do not go this well. Prior to signing on with John I called all of the references he provided, over 20 in all and without exception they all recommended I use Sunset. I am pleased to add my name to this reference list and will be happy to talk to prospective clients of Sunset.

We cannot say enough about our wonderful experience with Sunset Designers & Builders!! From the first time we met John Zahn, we knew we wanted him to build us one of his beautiful elevated pools. John listened to all of our thoughts and provided excellent ideas to complete the perfect backyard oasis for us! The entire Sunset team was very professional and always accessible. Our project was completed on time and within budget. We now spend so much family time in our backyard and we could not be happier!! Thank you Sunset!!

John Zahn designed a beautiful jacuzzi/waterfall project for us. He was careful to include all the specific project details we were looking for, which included a waterfall feature that made enough sound to drown out nearby freeway noise, plenty of seating for 8-10 people, and our specific color palette. He also worked hard to match the existing masonry in our backyard, so it actually looks like that entire portion of the yard was constructed at the same time. He was flexible in accommodating changes that we made along the way, including the exact location of the jacuzzi on the ground. He also handled the landscaping and lighting plan around the jacuzzi and did a fabulous job integrating it with the overall design. We are so pleased with the outcome that we use it almost daily. We've had two backyard parties since the project was finished and our guests have raved about the quality of the work. We can enthusiastically recommend John for your outdoor living space project!

Sunset Builders built us a beautiful pool, fireplace and outdoor kitchen in 2009! We have loved it every day since then! John was great in recommending quality equipment and features to compliment the quality pool he designed and built. He kept us up to date on the progress of the build every step of the way. The whole process was neat, timely and stress-less! Over the past few years a few small issues have come up; one call to John and he would come and adjust, replace or fix whatever the issue was. I can't say enough about the quality and responsiveness of John and the team at Sunset!

Thank you for all your work on our little beach home. We plan on retiring here so will enjoy the fruits of your labor for many, many years. Your energy, professionalism and creativity captured us from the beginning. Thank you for creating, designing and completing our “oasis.” We will thoroughly enjoy our outdoor living room.

To any family interested in creating a recreational area in your yard, we highly recommend Sunset for the job. Our pool continues to be the focal point of our warm weather exercise. The unique design has been a delight for our grandchildren. We do not hesitate to sing the praises of the builder to all who are interested. The entire experience was positive.

Our friends were stunned at the ‘look’ of the back area, particularly the plant lighting and color combinations. Of course they were awe struck by the cooking center. The experience of entertaining our friends rates it a “10”!
