  • Atlanta to Costa Rica's Fun in the Sun

    "We were a group of 5 adult couples. The house was beautiful and clean. Susan the house manager was always helpful and professional. We were picked up on time from the airport, and for all our tours. The beach literally abuts your back yard, and the pool and yard area was spectacular. We selected to have chef services for a couple of dinners and a breakfast, and the food was superb. For 10 adults we paid about $100 in groceries plus the chef fees. All the security guards were helpful, but Hosea was soooo nice and helpful, we considered him part of our group. The only thing I would say that was not as I expected, was the 1st floor bedroom was listed as having a queen bed, it was actually a full/double bed. Susan the house manager, and Jim the owner were a pleasure to talk to and did everything in their power to make this a vacation we won't forget. We are definitely coming back again! Date of arrival"

  • Truly an Oasis!

    "Both your “Labours of Love” are more stunning than any photograph can do them justice! We stayed in both. The artful décor and design of both houses is a credit to your talent and taste. The proximity to the beach while ensconced in a lush tropical private paradise is truly Pura Vida, the best of both worlds. The shared pool and wee waterfall are a much-needed refreshment at this very hot time of the year and the ever-present iguanas and squirrels provided much entertainment. You seem to attract the right guests because both sets of folks who occupied the “other” house while we were there for five days were delightful and fun while never being obtrusive. We liked the raised open spaciousness of Del Mar but concluded that we liked Del Rio for its tucked-away privacy and front-door access to the oft-used pool. Jan, your friend and property manager, is wonderfully accommodating and knowledgeable and provided many very helpful tips about the area. Both Jennifer and I would heartily recommend your idyllic retreat to anyone wanting a taste of Pura Vida! Warmest regards, The Snowbirds"

  • Beautiful House

    "We stayed at Casa Alegre for 6 days. Our group was 5 adults and 5 children ranging from 9-16 years of age. Everyone loved the house and we all slept comfortable. The layout of the house is very nice and the house feels very cozy. The pictures on the site represent exactly what the house looks like. The house was clean, pool was well-maintained, kitchen was well equipped with enough pots, pans, even a griddle making it easy to make breakfast. The pool is as big as it looks in picture, kids loved it and having your own private pool is always awesome. If you wake up really early and some evening and sit in the back porch you will see beautiful macaws flying by or sitting in the trees in the backyard, they are breathtaking. The location is great you are only 3 min from Playa Hermosa and very close to some other beaches too. Your also only 10 min from Jaco, which is a cute little town with lots of souvenir shops, restaurants. We took a drive to Manuel Antonio National Park, it was very easy to get there with GPS and took us about 1 hr 15 min. It is worth it to go they have beautiful beaches inside the park and you see lots of wildlife, monkeys roaming etc. There are many restaurants within 5 min from the house and the kids loved PizzaPata which served very good pizza and is only 2-3 min from house and they deliver too. The owner Paul, did an amazing job making the whole process go very smoothly. From getting back to us immediately so we could book the house, to making payment, giving directions to the house, giving us the keys and checkout. He was extremely accommodating and even texted us to make sure everything was going fine during our stay. I would highly recommend this property and when we go back we will be contacting you Paul. Pura Vida!!!"

  • Exceeded My Expectations

    "It was 7 of us and from the moment we arrived we were greeted by Tina, and little did we know our awesome adventure was just going to keep getting better. Tina helped us book tours, and provided us with any and everything that we needed. The house was cozy, fully equipped and had an amaaaazing rooftop view. The pool right next to the ocean was breathtaking. Yoyo'so bar was on the pool and had a selection of snacks, yummy drinks and delicious food( you have to try YoYo'so hummus). The beach had black sand and everyday around 6pm we enjoyed the amazing sunset. All and all the house completely exceeded my expectations and definitely would recommend this to friends and family."
