  • The best lemonade ever!!

    "After our daughter's wedding got cancelled, we were looking for some place where we could make lemonade out of lemons. And boy, did we! First off, Chloe was great to work with, answering all of our questions, giving suggestions about various activities, and giving practical advice about how to get around, where to buy groceries, rent a car, etc. We were a group of 11 adults and 3 children. The Oceana house was perfect for us. In addition to the beautiful view and breezes, we loved the pool, the covered patio, and the soccer field. We decided to use the driver and van rather than rent our own van and we were thrilled with that service. Our driver, Ronald, was fabulous. Always on time, patient and helpful. We all fit in one van - car seats and all. We did rent a smaller car which was helpful for runs to the store or for shuttling people/babies to and from the beach. We used the catering service for two of our meals. It was so nice to come back to a delicious and plentiful meal after a day of activities. Chloe introduced us to some local women she uses as babysitters who spoke English and Spanish. They were so good with the children. Chloe made the reservations for activities that catered to our needs. We wanted more adventure than the standard tourist activities so our activities included a class IV river rafting run, the Superman zip line in addition to the canopy zip line, surfing, hiking to Tres Pilas and then cliff jumping into the pools, and going on the Rain Maker night tour in the jungle. Daniel, Chloe's husband, and his friends were excellent surf instructors who even climbed the coconut trees and gave us all agua de pipa to drink. Our biggest frustration was that some of the activities took longer than expected primarily because of drive time. With small children this was hard. Also, some of the activities included meals which we didn't realize until we got to the activity. This trip was the adventure of a life time. We'd love to come again and will stay at Pura Vida if we do. Thank you Chloe and Daniel. You're the best!!"

  • I will return!

    "First, no matter what I say after this, "expect me back". The interior of the house was well maintained, clean and adequate space for two people. It was excellent to work with Paula the owner and Claudette the caretaker. They were both very responsive to every email and phone call. I wanted a quiet get away and that's what I got. The kitchen had everything that we needed to prepare meals and though we did forget some minor things, they were easily found within a five minute drive. The ocean was literally a stone throw away, which was the best part of the stay. The sound of the ocean and the ocean breeze was so relaxing and tranquil. The internet worked great, so I could lay in the lounge chair on the large exterior covered porch and enjoy NFL games and the atmosphere of the ocean simultaneously. If I had anything to recommend for improvement would be the bed in the master bedroom. It's a small room, so I know it would be difficult for a larger bed to fit, but the pillows on the master bed did not smell so fresh and my feet hung out over the foot of the bed. We did meet Dan the neighbor a very pleasant chap from Ohio, I will not hold that against him and his mellow dog Donna. It became funny that Donna always knew when to show up for meal time. :) All in all, I loved my stay and definitely looking forward to a return visit."

  • Great house and location along the Pacific

    "After spending two weeks in this lovely home in a charming neighborhood in a great location we couldn't agree more with all that was said in previous reviews. AND watching sunsets over the Pacific a real plus. Very friendly neighbors, guards and locals. Only drawback for us was that during most of our stay the heat and humidity made for three shower days. Aside from that our stay was a very enjoyable experience."

  • HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

    "We loved Paradise found! It was the perfect Costa Rican getaway house with all the necessary amenities from cookware to beach towels! No air conditioning, but ceiling fans in every room kept the house cool. Nice veranda out front to escape the hot sun and look out at the beach a few yards away. Lovely clean pool was refreshing and a great place to sip cocktails in the evening. Several restaurants close by including Los Pelicanos-our favorite! Short drive to Jaco for grocery stores, bank, gift shops etc. Great house for familiies and or group of friends. Mark, the caretaker and his sweet family live on the premises and are there to answer questions or give advice. We can not wait to go back!"
