  • Peace and Quiet

    "You will need a 4 four drive/SUV to get to this place. However, it was 100% worth it!! The property has amazing views of the Pacific coastline, and the Casa Selva, where we stayed, had amazing views of the jungle. The views were not the only amazing part however. Night time is a treat for the ears, with sounds I only expected to hear in a wildlife documentary. Diane and her family are incredibly pleasant people and very well informed about the area, despite moving there relatively recently. In short, do your eyes and ears a favour, and stay at this property!!"

  • Breathtaking View

    "I am normally not one to write reviews however we recently stayed at Bosque en el Cielo and had an absolutely amazing experience. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We enjoyed many sunset nights in the pool and enjoyed listening to the many sounds of the jungle. We were showed where the home was located and found it a little tricky to find the next time. A 4-wheel drive car is a must and hopefully you know how to drive a standard. Lynne was very easy to work with an very accommodating. This was the best vacation we have ever been on. Thanks!!!!!"

  • 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!"

  • LOVED IT!!!

    "My husband and I were here for 10 days and did not want to leave! Loved the wildlife all around us. Laying in the pool and watching the monkeys move through the trees above us was so entertaining. Very private, relaxing area. Jolly Roger is right down the road and a very fun spot. Live music, great food and super fun staff. Villa Helena was in a great location for our activities, beaches, off-shore fishing, hiking to waterfalls and shopping. Owners and property managers are both extremely helpful through the entire process. Like having a personal travel agent...everything they recommended, we loved! We DEFINITELY want to come back!"
