  • Pura Vida Paradise

    "A unique and beautiful property that has stolen a small piece of my heart. I rented this home with my boyfriend and we enjoyed a week of absolute relaxation and privacy . A luxe experience. It's ideal for up to 4 couples, but for just two, completely amazing. Each bedroom is very isolated from the others if privacy is paramount. The master suite is by far the best, but the other 3 are cozy and charming. Photos can't do this house justice. Unique architecture, lovely details, comfortable, well equipped. Amazing acoustics if you're a musician. Daily toilet frog check became an amusing pastime, early evening is usually when they emerge. Don't be surprised by geckoes, lizards, moths, insects and birds entering the house. All friendly creatures though. Birdwatching is best done very early (5am) from the pool deck or the master suite deck, late afternoon is also a lively time. On our last morning we saw 20 toucans visit. The one thing missing from the house is a hammock experience. I bought a couple hammocks on the beach in Dominical and some rope from the local grocery store and hung them by the pool and main level deck. Highly recommended. More details: 4x4 necessary for the drive up, but nearly all rentals are 4x4 anyway. No direct sun on the main house till noon so it stays relatively cool though the morning, a/c in each bedroom is a lovely respite but not absolutely necessary. Recommend the fruit and veg stands on the road to San Isidro de el General for fresh produce, coconut juice and coconut oil. Souvenir shopping in Dominical is nice, there are beach stalls and established storefronts. Don't be afraid to compare prices and bargain. Algeria spa in Dominical is amazing for massages and facials. Inexpensive and professional. Neil is a professional, thoughtful, thorough and accessible host. Working with him was a pleasure. We're looking forward to our next visit. Pura Vida! Viva Casa Tangaroa!"

  • 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!"

  • Best family vacation ever!

    "Our stay at Mareas was easily the best family vacation we have ever taken. It was amazing to have this stunning property all to ourselves! It has complete privacy, tucked away into the jungle with a panoramic ocean view, but it's only minutes from the best surfing beach in the area. My mother and wife were completely in awe of the gardens, and we all loved the walking jungle path down to the river and waterfalls. The pool is enormous, and we swam in it every day! Tim made fantastic meals for us several times - much better than any of the local restaurants. His wife Pilar was very helpful, both before our arrival and after, making suggestions for local excursions, booking tours and even arranging shuttle service. She said they often do weddings here, and I can totally believe it. My parents are already talking about us all going back for their 50th anniversary. I highly recommend staying here!"
