  • The most amazing place on Earth! Worth the drive.

    "We had simply the perfect vacation to Casa Pura Vida for Spring Break 2015. Our family of four (10 yo, 13 yo) spent 10 days at the house and could not bear to leave. It would be impossible to convey how amazing (and EASY) this vacation was. Neil's packet of trip information was invaluable, and everything in there was accurate. We arrived after dark, and still managed to find the house pretty easily. The house is stunning. STUNNING! It is more beautiful than the photos can convey, with a huge upstairs balcony and an enormous porch with outdoor dinner seating (both with ocean views). There were more than adequate comfortable patio chairs for lounging after dinner. And that pool! We spent multiple hours a day at the pool, resting in the hammocks and playing with the kids. Here are some of the bonuses (that I must have missed in the description when I booked): outdoor charcoal grill, rinse-off station behind the house in addition to A FULL BATHHOUSE adjacent to the pool, a small hiking path on the property, a covered parking area, complete privacy, pool lighting that allowed you to use the pool area well past nightfall, a more than fully supplied kitchen (there were appliances that we don't have at our 'real' house), not one but TWO WiFi connections--the pool has it's own, a TV with ESPN --in Espanol -- which allowed our kids to see the Final Four and some NBA games. I could go on and on! I don't think I realized initially how convenient the location would be. It is a 3-3.5 hour drive from San Jose, but it is a gorgeous drive and there are infinite roadside restaurants along the way. Once at the house, you are only 5 minutes from the surf town of Domenical and 5 minutes from Uvita with great grocery stores that were open long past dark. Uvita was the start of the national beaches which we LOVED. There were probably 30 restaurants within 15 minutes of the house and we did not have a bad meal in the lot. The whole fish entree was a favorite of everyone in our party. We did the Nayauca Waterfall horseback ride which was worth every cent. It was $70 USD per person, but included two full meals and was worth every penny. Kids loved the cliff jumping/diving and we got some unbelievable photos. Our kids took private surfing lessons on the 2nd day, and loved it so much that we went back twice more for additional lessons later in the week. I'm out of words, but it was truly a magical vacation. Perfection!"

  • Vistas Infinitas . . . Say's it All!

    "Upon our late arrival, we were greeted with a big smiling welcome from Nickie (house manager), who showed us around your beautiful home! It was more magnificent than depicted on the website, extremely well appointed, kitchen fully equipped and comfortable beds! Every detail thought of, the fans, lighting, books, etc. The landscaping around the home was full of tropical foliage with landscape lighting at night actuating the lipstick palms to bougainvillea framing in the view of the Pacific Ocean from the porch! My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with another couple and your home provided the perfect setting! Each morning began with gazing at the ocean as the sun rose revealing the colors of the flora of the surrounding mountains . . . after breakfast we explored the country, Quepos Fiera (Saturday), Hacienda Baru (nature trail and zip line), Manuel Antonio, the Organic Fiera in San Isidro (Tuesday's), and afternoon's in the pool (very private), until the rains refreshed earth, then the sunsets, what more can I say! We had visits from Toucan's, Humming Bird's and the resident frogs, a real treat! Showering using the outdoor shower, before dinner each night was Pura Vita with orchids peeping over the rail and the mountain side was the shower curtain! The broad selection of reference books gave insight to the birds, animals and culture of Costa Rica! We were so into the outside world that we didn't turn on the satellite TV at all. WiFi handled data transfer with no problem, and annoying bugs were virtually non existent at that altitude. 4x4 recommended, drive slow and look for wildlife! Nickie was a great help and wonderful to share when, where and what about Costa Rica . . . Perfect pick for us, thank you for sharing your home!"

  • Great Place in wonderful Dominical

    "Our five night stay here was simply delightful. Dominical, where we have been many times, is an easygoing relaxed place to visit which in and of itself is well worth going to on vacation. The townhouse was absolutely perfect and we could not be happier with the rental. It is located just above domincalito beach with wonderful views, peaceful mornings and easy access to all the activities in the area. The owner was very easy and straightforward to deal with...no problems there at all. I'd highly recommend this place as it is a "turnkey" way to visit the area and our trip to the area could not have been made any easier."

  • Great Value

    "This house was great for our needs. We had a one year old and a two year old and the house was great for us. We didn't utilize the lower portion of the house. If you do plan on using it, take note that it is completely separate from the top portion with its own entrance from outside. The view is unbeatable. Walking to the beach is possible, but it is a steep incline the whole way."
