  • Wonderful Experience

    "This was a serene, beautiful home for our four nights in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. The information Cassidy provides is invaluable for an enjoyable stay. He will answer all your questions and prepare you for an off the gird experience if you listen to his tips and prepare accordingly. The house has unbelievable views in every direction. The screening on all sides allows breezes to come through. We were at the house in June. It was the rainy season but the rain was no problem. It was every day, but with rain suits and realizing you are in a rain forest, it was simply part of the ambiance. While sitting on the wonderful deck with very comfortable rockers you heard boats coming and going on the Sierpe all day. Sitting there just listening and enjoying the beauty was so serene and peaceful. After two days with tours we spent one day relaxing at the house. It was a great way to end our stay. We left feeling rested and refreshed instead of tired and rushed. Everyone we dealt with on this excursion was wonderful. You definitely want to use Rayna to book your tours and activities. She is very quick to respond to questions and requests. The tours to Cano Island and Corcovado were super. She has found wonderful, top notch people to provide an unforgettable experience for you. Steven and crew for Cano Island and Caesar for Corcovado were very knowledgeable and caring. The house is very clean with comfortable beds. The views from both bedrooms is amazing. We saw butterflies, Toucans, green parrots, Macaws, Howler and white faced monkeys, with a crocodile near the dock. The walk from the dock to the house is a bit of a climb, but very doable."

  • Heaven on Earth

    "The word paradise only touches on describing this magical place. This breezy house of mahogany, awash with the scent of tropical flowers, this is the stuff dreams are made of. The abundant sunshine, the private beach just steps away, the chatter of wild parakeets that wake you in the morning, the breathtaking sunsets to wish you a goodnight, the magnificent tropical storms, the overwhelming sense of peace. All this and so much more make this place a true heaven on earth. I stayed for two weeks with my 6 year old son. It was an enchanted journey that we’ll never forget. Alex and Mary were the most gracious of hosts who went over and above to make our stay unforgettable. I can’t recommend this beautiful beach house (or these people) more. This was not a vacation for us but rather a new family tradition!"

  • Costa Rica Getaway

    "We rented Casa Pura Vida for Spring Break with our 3 adult children and had a great time. The house and its surrounding grounds were beautiful and extremely well kept. We saw monkeys, toucans and lots of cool iguanas. The swimming pool had a really great cabana over it with hammocks to relax in. That was probably the best part of the house. My husband and I stayed in the little cabina and absolutely loved the outdoor bathroom and shower. It was so unique. I would highly recommend Casa Pura Vida to anyone who is looking for privacy and also being close to restaurants and shopping."

  • Great view

    "We enjoyed staying in this typical Tico bungalow. The view is beautiful. We could see so much vegetation and the ocean. The yard is lovely and filled with animals. We went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of birds. We even saw a sloth just down the road. The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off sandy feet. The house was clean and met our needs. It looks like the pictures posted. We had to get comfortable with the lack of glass windows however having the screens provided wonderful breezes and made us feel part of the landscape. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen has everything we needed. There are plenty of towels and two beach chairs. The house is secure with an alarm, safe and good lighting. The internet would go on and off which required us to keep resetting it. Our host Rebecca is wonderful. She has a full book with the house information and local tours and activities. She arranged several guided tours at the National Forest and Butterfly Garden. She told us the best place to park for the beach and where to eat. The house is centrally located and stores, restaurants and pharmacy are within walking distance. This is also a draw back since the road is very noisy and traffic continued until about 10 pm as well as the music at the bar across the street. We learned to adjust. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. We really enjoyed our visit."
