About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come experience the pure life at Casa Pura Vida.

Recently renovated and just minutes from several secluded tropical beaches, Casa Pura Vida offers ideal privacy, close-to-town convenience, and first-rate facilities for travelers from all across the globe longing to experience the very best that Costa Rica has to offer.

Our guests only need to take an 8-minute stroll from the patio to get their toes in the sand at the nearest beach. And this stretch of coastline is so wide open, you could stay for hours without seeing another soul splashing in the warm waves out front.

Featuring two bedrooms in the main house and another “Monkey House” studio apartment on the opposite end of the property, Casa Pura Vida is ideal for up to 6 guests. Both bedrooms in the main house are equipped with air conditioning units, queen-sized beds and patio access featuring exquisite views of the mighty Pacific Ocean to the west.

There are one-and-a-half bathrooms in the main house. The kitchen, living area, and washer and dryer units are all located on the first floor. The villa is equipped with cable television, wireless internet and a BBQ, as well as all kinds of useful cookware for your culinary delights.

The patio at the front entrance of the villa was completely redesigned in December 2017, and with plenty of comfortable sofas and shade now available, now makes for an ideal spot to lounge around and sip coffee in the mornings or enjoy cocktails at sunset. The sounds of the local howler monkey community and the sights of toucans swooping through the trees only enhance these special moments with friends and family.

Casa Pura Vida’s swimming pool features areas that are shaded and areas that are exposed to the sun. So you can swing from a hammock above the pool while avoiding the sun rays, or you can stretch out on a lounge chair and work up a deep tan that’ll make all of your co-workers incredibly jealous. We call this having the best of both worlds. An outdoor bathroom and shower complement the pool area.

As you navigate the property from south to north, scoping out the beauty of the native plants and their incredibly vibrant colors, you’ll end up at the Monkey House. This is a spot for those that really want to be immersed in nature. The bathroom and shower are both outdoors (with plenty of privacy, so don’t worry) and the interior design is a splendid mix of river rock and native wood. And while the Monkey House may have the feel of vacationing with The Flinstones, the microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator provide plenty of 21st century conveniences as well. Where’s the best place to see monkeys on the property? Easy, the Monkey House, right around back where the creek cuts through the jungle.

In terms of location, Casa Pura Vida is located 10 minutes south of Dominical and 10 minutes north of Uvita. Dominical is a laid-back surf town with international and local restaurants, bars and lots of souvenir shopping. Uvita has great restaurants as well, and also features banks, pharmacies and larger grocery stores. Within 30 minutes of the villa are more than a dozen world-class beaches, all of which feature ocean temperatures in the mid-80s.

At YouGetHere Property Management, we strive to provide all of our clients with a top-notch vacation experience. We have an office nearby and are prepared to assist our guests with tour reservations, in-home chef services, car rental and shuttles, and any type of villa maintenance that may pop up.

So why wait any longer? Book a stay at Casa Pura Vida today and start dreaming up the best vacation of your life.

Just like in the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so lucky to have rented this home for our visit to Uvita.

The home is VERY beautiful!

Has everything you need.

My wife especially LOVED the outdoor shower in the master bedroom.

The internet was a bit slow and could use some updating to be faster.

But we managed.

We saw a family of howler monkeys who visited us on our last day we felt so lucky.

The gardens are spectacular and very well kept.

Management company was very friendly to deal with.

Would we stay here again....YES!!

Very nice, authentic Costa Rican property

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, well appointed and beautiful property. The pool is in between the Monkey house and the main house, which made hanging out in the pool a little bit of work. Overall, I would recommend this place as it is centrally located, clean and well appointed.

Beautiful and comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and well appointed home that overlooks the jungle with the ocean in the distance. We especially enjoyed utilization of the covered porch, its vistas and proximity to the monkeys playing in the trees (and sometimes on the roof of the house). It's a great place to read a book and listen to the various sounds emanating from the forest. The house is stocked with modern appliances and accessories and everything works well. The pool is great too and offers a refreshing contrast from the warm and salty beach water. We ate breakfast at the house and the other meals off the property, mostly in Dominical. Our favorite was PorqueNo, a short drive up the road. All in all, a very clean, well maintained and chill place to spend some time. Highly recommended

A beautiful tropical forest setting with visiting toucans, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, etc.

  • 5 of 5

You will enjoy the primordial sounds of howler monkeys at first light as you listen to the surf in the distance telling you to get down to the beaches. Gorgeous stone house and pool. Perfect for our family of four (but six would be good too) and lots of privacy with the monkey hut separated from the main house. The kitchen and veranda are a perfect set up to plan and then reminisce about your day.

Casa Pura Vida was our very own Costa Rican sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Woke up our first morning to a bunch of capuchin monkeys jumping through the canopy above the cabina. Lots of toucans and other beautiful songbirds, too. We loved sitting on the patio - perfect way to start and end each day. Our whole family took advantage of the pool and some serious hammock time during the heat of the day. It was a bit musty smelling when we first arrived but opening the windows and turning on the fans quickly took care of that. The house had so many amenities including a blender for our fresh fruit smoothies (from Jorge’s fruit stand a short distance from the house) and a beautiful gas barbecue on the patio where we cooked the fish we caught with Captain Kevin from Diablo fishing for some delicious fish tacos.

Although the location worked well for our family be aware that you won’t be walking to the nearest restaurant, sandy beach, or town. We usually went to a beach to watch the 5:45 sunset and then headed home to cook up some dinner and enjoy the patio (covering the patio was a great move). We would definitely stay at Casa Pura Vida again as we felt safe and secure in our tropical paradise!

Very nice home with lots of wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we met with Stephen. He was very helpful. The owners had added a new awning to the front of the home. This was a huge plus, it gave us a nice sitting area. Very nice house with a separate cottage in back surrounded by wildlife. We had a wonderful stay. thanks
