"What a gem! We had a wonderful week at this beautiful spot. It is well hidden on the top of a mountain, accessible only with 4 wheel drive. Once you get there you will not want to leave. The view is spectacular. We were serenaded daily by the kiskadee, with toucans all around making lively conversation. A birder's paradise- all from the comfort of a rocking chair on the open balcony. Hummingbirds abound, and a family of golden napped woodpeckers were there every morning.
The pool was a perfect spot to watch the sunset and see the weather moving in over the Pacific Ocean and the Oja peninsula. What a spectacular vista. The house is very comfortable, with satellite TV, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 full bathrooms and a separate laundry room. I highly recommend a tour through Corcovados national park. We saw 4 species of monkeys, beautiful scarlet macaws, numerous small birds and lizards, with a guided tour by a knowledgable naturalist. The highlight of our jungle trek was a howler monkey fight overhead. Another fun tour for the more adventurous was a zip line through the canopy which includes multiple zip lines, hanging bridges, rappelling and a Tarzan swing. We were fortunate in sighting a blue morpho butterfly on this tour. I highly recommend this beautiful spot and hope to return soon."

"We just returned from Santa Teresa, and already miss our home away from home! We went with our daughter (age seven) for our tenth anniversary. The villa was perfect. The pool is amazing, perfect temperature, good for adults and children. The kitchen is fully stocked for any meal you would like to create, with a beautiful ocean view while you cook. The furniture is comfortable from the outdoor swings, couches and day beds, to the couch in the living room and the mattresses in the bedroom, you will find a great spot anywhere. There is excellent storage for your clothes, in handcrafted wood armoires. The bathrooms have beautiful outside showers with plenty of hot water. We spent the majority of time reading and swimming outside enjoying the view, with the occasional ping pong or pool game. The house would be perfect for a small family, to a larger group. The owners were very kind, and responsive. They were extremely knowledgeable of the area, and making sure we were comfortable. We felt very safe, relaxed, and happy Casa De Los Suenos. I would absolutely recommend this villa for your vacation."

"Voilà pour La Siete Cascadas; un paradis absolu !!!
Ce lieu nous a charmé tout au long de notre séjour par sa beauté, son calme, son confort, sa végétation luxuriante, ses jardins d'Eden et ses non moins charmants propriétaires.
Suspendu entre ciel et terre mais aussi à proximité de la plage (20 minutes) et de San Isidro (30 minutes), vous trouverez aussi sur la route quelques bons marchands de fruits et légumes ainsi qu'un chouette marché bio (le mardi). Ne vous restera qu'à choisir l'activité de chaque jour ou la farniente majeure……. Excursion en montagnes, baignades dans les cascades, surf ou équitation à la plage, méditation et yoga sur la terrasse, observation des oiseaux, contemplation, contemplation, contemplation. Qui dit mieux ?!?!?!"

"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!"
