Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

My first impression as we drove up to the property was are we really staying here? Such a beautiful house and well maintained property. The grounds are sufficient for a morning stroll through a tropical garden which is well maintained by a local gardener. The patio and balcony offer the perfect vantage for relaxing while overlooking a jungle Paradise. Plus Dominical was just a few minutes away where we could brave the surf, do some shopping, or find an interesting dining venue.

The house was well equiped with everything we needed to truly have a vacation to remember.

Wonderful house and garden!

  • 5 of 5

When we booked Casa Pura Vida we really liked what we saw on the photos and we were not a bit disappointed when arriving; the property is just wonderful! The house is really charming and walking around in the garden is amazing with all beautiful plants , trees and flowers and hearing and seeing all insects, birds and even monkeys is just fantastic. We were 6 persons staying one week and it was really comfortable as we also rented the little charming extra house. The location of the property is great with just a few minutes to Playa Dominical or Playa Uvita by car. Neil and his staff at "yougethere.com" are very professional, nice and helpful so we really felt that we were well taken care of during our stay.

Costa Rica Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Winter Respite

  • 5 of 5

We chose Casa Pura Vida as a reward for personal accomplishments and as a way to shorten a dreary North American winter. The weather, the Costa Rican people, and the house fulfilled all our wishes. The house has everything we needed to live comfortably. The jewel of the facility is the covered swimming pool. The road leading to Pura Vida is rough, but it is worth it. The grounds are private and beautiful. We did not try walking to the beach. In our estimation it would be a challenge. However, the beaches up and down the coastline at Dominical are wonderful. We have rented houses in many settings, urban and rural. We think Casa Pura Vida is the best bargain we have experienced. The surrounding area provides many good restaurants, a lot of life, and abundant warmth.

Our own private nature reserve!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and husband travelled from England to stay in the aptly named Pura Vida for two weeks. The house and garden are beautifully maintained and cleaned to the highest standard. The grounds were our personal nature reserve. Everything we needed was provided including well equipped kitchen, efficient and quick washing machine and dryer, fast and reliable Internet connection and extremely comfortable beds!

Each morning we sat having our early morning coffee on the ocean view bedroom terrace, watching and listening to the wildlife. From here we saw white faced capuchin monkeys, countless species of birds including toucans, macaws, hummingbirds, a variety of butterflies and much more. The swimming pool area was great, equipped with loungers and hammocks and on some occasions we swam whilst watching the monkeys. From outside the Monkey Hideout cabina we watched and photographed the Howler monkeys in the forest.

The manager Neil was very helpful with his extensive knowledge of the area and he arranged some great tours for us; a boat trip with snorkelling to Cano island - this is a great fun day, stopping to watch the turtles and dolphins en route to great snorkelling in the warm waters, then a thrilling zip lining experience right down through the jungle.

I'd highly recommend this villa for a romantic hideaway, for a family or group of friends. Great value for money and our best holiday yet!

The Name Sums It Up Nicely!

  • 5 of 5

Pura Vida...can't get better than this! My husband and I and another couple stayed in this amazing house for a week. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined this. It IS exactly as it is advertised! The only problem we had was there being no air conditioning (as advertised!). It was extremely hot & humid and you ARE right in the rain forest, but coming from -30 degrees Celcius, some of our group found it tough to deal with, but I LOVED IT! I miss it sooooooo much! The house was well equipped, except that we had not read the promo materials very well, so we didn't know that we needed to supply our own paper goods (TP and paper towels) and we were unprepared! Also, that there is really only 1.5 bathrooms in the house and the 2nd bathroom is at the pool house. One bathroom for 4 adults in the morning is challenging! The beds are comfy, the decore (particularly all the wood carving) is magnificent. The 5:30 am alarm clock works extremely well -- the howler monkeys came right up to the "monkey hideout" casita. Every morning I grabbed my coffee and camera and went out there...got some incredible up close sound bites of the howlers! The morning sounds of the rain forest are insane, and I miss them terribly. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful - gracefully integrated into the rain forest. The pool was a god-send! With no air conditioning, it was the only real way to cool off. Even though we were in the jungle, we truly felt safe. Our resident geckos were quite prominent and were quite at home with us. We had rented a 4x4 vehicle -- you definitely need one for that area. Dominical is such a beautiful area. With many beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, and its proximity to Uvita and Manuel Antonio, it makes for extraordinary sightseeing and beaching/ swimming/ surfing. We would highly recommend Restaurante La Parcela in Dominicalito - reasonable prices and great food, with a stunning sunset view (we went twice because it was so good). The Jolly Roger (pub & grill) was a hoot! We had so many adventures in the Dominical area - all were good! The beach markets are loads of fun. The Ticos are wonderful, happy people and always happy to help you (even if you can't speak the language well). Neil was very helpful and had plenty of information, brochures, tips, etc. on the Dominical area. This house completely suits it's name...Casa Pura Vida - it can't get much better than this and I'm longing to go back!
