5/5 Excellent

Excellent Choice for a Costa r
Pura Vida House was an outstanding choice for a vacation home in Costa Rica for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. The house was well located in a safe quiet area of Hacienda Pinilla. The outdoor lounging and pool area was perfect for our group. Having access to the Beach Club was a large bonus. Our group spent many hours enjoying its excellent pool and facilities. The staff was welcoming. The owners Jorge and Stephanie were extremely helpful. Any questions we had were answered almost instantly. They provided good advice on tours to take and sites in and around the area. We give Pura Vida House our highest rating and would recommend the residence to all couples and families.

5/5 Excellent

Great house, great value, great owners
I stayed at Pura Vida House with 5 friends for a week and we had the best experience! The house was perfect for our group and Jorge and Stephanie have thought of everything: towels, board games, first aid kit, hammocks, bikes! We opted to have some of our meals catered in and it was the best decision. We booked some daytime excursions and it couldn't have been simpler - they picked us up and dropped us off at the house and we paid for everything directly to Jorge and Stephanie. The property itself is gorgeous, secure (a guardhouse and a keypad gate), spacious and clean. Several grocery stores are nearby and the prices aren't too bad. The town of Tamarindo was about 20 minutes away and there were plenty of shops and restaurants to visit. Jorge responded to every email and text message and made sure we were well taken care of. We would definitely go back!

5/5 Excellent

Great home and convenient to local activities!
The Pura Vida home exceeded all of my expectations! It is a great home and well kept up. Lounging in the pool, visiting the beach club, riding the golf carts to and from JW Marriott and enjoying their pool and spa are just a few daily activities that we enjoyed during our ladies trip. Jorge and Stephanie were more than any guest could ask for! They returned our calls and text messages immediately when we had any questions or wanted reservations to restaurants; or suggestions for night clubs! Jorge and Stephanie also coordinated our transportation to and from airport, and our excursion to the Springs Resort. Our driver, Adrian was great!! I do suggest to take this excursion. This was my second time in Costa Rica, and this was by far one of the best resorts for a daytime excursion. (Horseback riding, tubing, wall repelling, springs, nature walk.. swim up bar , beautiful spa.. just to name a few of the activities that our group took advantage of!!! Did I mention, the lunch included was AWESOME! ) We also catered breakfast, lunch , and dinner for a few days at the villa and this was a great added bonus! On these days, it was hard to leave the house and pool; I really felt like I was on vacation :-) The only suggestion I would make is to have some citronella candles for the outdoor space. Thank you Stephanie and Jorge for our wonderful stay. Pura Vida villa attributed to making great memories for our 2018 Ladies getaway.

4/5 Good

We had a lovely time
Our two families had a very nice time at the Pura Vida house. It was very clean and pretty and had everything we needed, a little smaller than you would expect of a four bedroom house but pleasant. It is not right on the beach but we did like having access to the Beach Club, about five minutes drive away.

5/5 Excellent

What a wonderful vacation! The house was perfect for our two families and 9 kids!! We really enjoyed the beach club, with a massage, lunch by the pool the pool and the beach! Walking to lola's down from the beach club was a highlight! The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. The housekeeper even came halfway through our stay and did all of our laundry!! The owners were amazing to work with and easy to communicate with though out our whole stay!! We will be returning for sure! WE love Costa Rica and this house! Its located in a perfect spot whether you want a secluded vacation or want lots of activities!! thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home!! The Hall and The Hodges families
