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.

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.

Incredible Views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The views from the villa were magnificent! Driving up the hill was great and once we reach our destination we were in ahh with the view. Monica was an exceptional concierge helping us with walking us through the house, directing us to the best beaches, and setting up a private chef at the villa. Whenever we had any questions she was super prompt in getting back to us and making sure all of our needs were met. There was 4 in our party and we spent much of our time relaxing at the pool and taking in the views. Have to say it was the best sunset I have ever seen. Definitely would come back!

Getaway in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Talk about a gem in the timeless beauty of one of the most beautiful places on earth, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica! This glorious retreat is situated on the highest point in the area, with a 180 degree vista of the ocean and surrounding jungle. The ambiance is both posh and casual elegance, with an incredible infinity pool overlooking the area. It is tastefully decorated with beautiful furnishings in all the rooms. With the spacious openness, one feels like being inside and outside at the same time. Take a look at the photos. It is even more beautiful when you are standing in the house! My lady and I enjoyed three glorious nights of peace and tranquility, with only the sounds of the birds and monkeys to create the glorious ambiance. If you are looking for an incredible vacation experience in Costa Rica, I could not recommend a house more highly. No more hotel rooms with noisy neighbors in Manuel Antonio for me! If you wish, a driver and chef are also offered! A perfect romantic getaway or family vacation! What are you waiting for?

Costa Rica

Better than 5 STAR Hotel. Best sunset, timeless views. Romantic Getaway. Driver and Staff are Superb

  • 5 of 5

Shangri-La house is even better than a 5 STAR hotel. It was a nice size for the four of us, plus our adult nieces who visited for a few nights. We never felt crowded, with all of the terrazas and open gathering areas. We travelled to Costa Rica to celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary and our brother/sister-in-law (and their daughters) joined us. The trip was perfect down to the smallest details. Thank you Brandi and Pedro (house manager//concierge) for assisting us with transportation and tours, Chef Desiree was AMAZING, and our private driver Carlos was punctual/polite and knowledgeable. Shangri - La is a 5- STAR experience, and we highly recommend to the most selective traveller. We loved the custom furniture and the dreamy cozy beds. Thank you for a wonderful refreshing vacation- Ana and Ernie
