The Pura Vida is a luxurious, newly constructed, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom waterfront lake house on the PUBLIC side of Lake Anna.
***The house has a maximum capacity of 11 people, including children, at all times in the house and the property due to the small size of the septic system. Large parties/events are not permitted, only small "get-togethers." We also have a minimum age requirement of 25 of, at least, one or more adults.***
The house and décor embody the meaning of the term ”Pura Vida.” It is a phrase used in the Costa Rican culture which literally means “Pure Life,” but is commonly used to mean 'full of life' or 'this is living!' The beauty and serenity of the house and Lake Anna is truly “Pura Vida” living.
This lake home boasts breathtaking views of the lake from several rooms with over-sized Anderson glass windows and sliders throughout the house, including a stunning wall of windows expanding up 20 feet in the main level great room.
This two level 3200 square foot home has two master bedrooms both with lake views, king beds and private master spa baths with custom tile work and rain shower heads; one family bedroom with one queen bed, a twin trundle bed and a private bathroom, and a 4th bedroom with a queen bed. The sofa in the basement recreational room also has a queen sized pull out bed. High quality towels and bed linens are also provided.

There are 2 outdoor patio tables on the deck and patio that can accommodate 4-5 people at each table.
The outdoor living at the Pura Vida is just as spectacular as the indoor living.

The screen porch is located via sliding glass door off the kitchen. Dine, grill and enjoy sun bathing on an expansive 60 foot deck which is the entire back side of the house. It wouldn't be “Pura Vida” living without hammocks, swing, lounge chairs, and more.
Guests will have use of one large covered boat slip, for one boat only, in a shared boat house that is very close, on a gentle slope, from the backyard of the house.
This house is designed for entertaining! Bring your family and friends down for a long weekend to enjoy the game or a holiday.

The Pura Vida is located in one of the most exclusive communities on the lake called, Wyndemere. Guests of the Pura Vida can enjoy all the community amenities in Wyndemere including 2 parks with gazebos and picnic areas, community basketball, volleyball and tennis court, and more. Bring your bikes, scooters and/or jogging and walking shoes to explore the community!
The Pura Vida is located on a quiet, calm cove, a no wake zone, on the Public side of the lake. The cove is very safe for swimming, paddle boating, paddle boarding, fishing, kayaking, and more. Unlike other houses located on the main part of the lake, which can be very loud with choppy waters, the Pura Vida’s quiet cove mutes loud weekend and, even, early morning noises from boats and jet skis. The Anderson windows and upgraded sound proof insulation silence the noise from the inside. Enjoy 'gas' heat/HVAC and fireplace on a cozy winter weekend retreat.
Explore the creek on the shoreline behind the house with fish, turtles, and salamanders and, perhaps, spot the local Beaver.
The location is central and only minutes away, both driving and boating, to many areas on the lake including the Lake Anna State Park, the Boardwalk with restaurants, Food Lion shopping center, Lake Anna Winery, and much more.
Enjoy the “good life” at the Pura Vida!
