About Brandi Gordon

WE love Costa Rica!! Our inspiration and conceptual framework are in creating the best possible living spaces to enjoy the blissful paradise we are blessed to call home. Let us show you how great paradise can be! Shangri La Manuel Antonio is perched high in the mountains of Rancho Manuel Antonio. Rancho Manuel Antonio is at the end of Valle Pura Vida, on the road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Brandi Gordon purchased this house in 2015

Why Brandi Gordon chose Valle Pura Vida

This property is born out of a vision to share this vista and true tropical environment with our family and friends. The location of the home is atop the highest mountain in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica, and is what the community developer calls, the best lot in the neighborhood. There's actually a plaque above the home from the National Association of Topographers to certify the uniqueness of the land. The views are of the rainforests of Manuel Antonio, towards Ronny's Place Restaurant, and the Pacific Ocean beyond. You can see far to the North on the Pacific Coast as well.

We aim high when it comes to comfort and pleasure, and we've created a destination that combines extreme natural beauty with the finest construction, finishes, and furnishings and we've seamlessly blended the two. The house flows with the land, the pool opens to the sea. We are immersed in the sounds and colors of tropical zen. This stunning creation is a haven enabling peaceful serenity and blissful enjoyment for even the most discerning of guests. We aim to please, and this home is certain to impress.

What makes this house unique

PRIVACY, Super LUXURY, ZEN natural setting, DRIVER, Amazing VIEWS, Superb Comfort and Enjoyment of Costa Rica when you come home to this level of quality and luxury.

Wonderful family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We are a family of 6. The 3 bedrooms were perfect. The vacation was a surprise 60th Birthday celebration for my husband. He did not know our 3 boys and daughter-in-law were meeting us.

The pictures shown on the internet depicts the home perfectly. I can't say enough about the view. Swimming in the pool and overlooking the ocean was incredible. This was a once in a lifetime vacation. Glad I could spend it here. Pura Vida says it all. Costa Rica is a wonderful place. The people are very pleasant. Just remember to bring your English/Spanish Spanish/English translator app.

The only negatives for the property were the dishwasher is not working (the part is on order) and the very steep drive to the house. We did not rent a car we relied on Carlos the taxi driver. He was awesome. Very informative and helpful.

Jon, our concierge, was quick to help when necessary. The power went out in the area and he was quick to have maintenance at the house to reset it.

Desiree, the chef we hired for dinner one evening, did an awesome job serving us a memorable dinner for my husbands 60th birthday. It inclided the cleanup.

We toured the local waterfalls, did a sunset catamaran, kayaked through mangroves and went to the beach. Jon was very helpful in planning our excursions.

We have been home for 3 days and I miss Costa Rica. Thank you Brandi, Jon and Desiree for making our once in a lifetime vacation a memorable one.

Great Views, Amezing Sunset and Nice Layout

  • 5 of 5

If you are staying in 2 or 3 bedroom, ladies please take your on mirrors as bathrooms mirrors are mounted very high.

Also did not have water in the morning as water pump did not work.

If you like to buy the place it is listed for $1.3M at the local Realators Office.

Despite above had a great time at the property.

Beautiful home, quiet location above town, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Our families loved the home and layout of bedrooms. Having laundry and cleaning during our stay was great. Home sleeps 8, but only 5 chairs at dining table. Concierge service was helpful. Definitely recommend this home!

Beautiful place with an awesome ocean view , the service from Walter was great very nice and kind, also Brandi the person you contact for rent the property was very helpful and nice. We will definitely come back . Only suggestion is to drive a 4x4 as the ride is very hilly and slippery.
