    "We loved our stay at the villa. We felt safe and enjoyed the beautiful views and sounds every day of our week stay. Early each morning, the birds awake and sing their song of the day which we recorded. We planned to compose music to their songs when we returned but their songs are so beautiful on their own. Staying at this villa, you do not feel like a tourist. The people of Dominical are friendly and accommodating. I purchased a new guitar in San Jose, played it for our stay and left it at the villa for future guests to strum. It is now the Serenity guitar of the villa. Enjoy as I did!"

  • Amazing Week in Dominical

    "Our family absolutely loved the Rainforest Preserve house in Dominical! There were seven of us and we had plenty of room and more for all of us. We especially loved the outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, and the pool. We discovered the sunset platform the last night we were there and wished we had found it earlier. The sights, sounds, and activities were amazing. I could have stayed another week. Everything was clean and if we ever needed anything, it was taken care of right away. Dahlip and Cindy were great about answering any questions and giving us suggestions on what to do. We enjoyed several different beaches, Manuel Antonio park, Osa Zipline, Nayuka Waterfall and a few local "soda's". I would recommend this to anyone that wants a secluded place, away from the hustle and bustle of resorts. I would stay here again if I could. Thank you for helping us have an amazing week in Dominical."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"
