Seldom do you walk into a rental property and immediately feel the warmth of a home, but it happens at Pura Vida. There is an almost mystical aura of calm and peace that you will feel at once. The Steffens have put so much thought and love into this home, you will feel blessed to have shared it. The house is immaculate and very well supplied, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and separating the living areas from the sleeping area is genius! The views from the main house as well as the bedrooms are simply spectacular... from the turquoise waters to the ever changing sky, to the twinkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance. We watched the sunrise every morning over St. Thomas, and then were lucky enough to have a full moon rising over the same view at night! We spent hours in the rocking chairs on the porch, first watching boats come and go into the bay near Las Pelas, and then had cocktails and played dominoes in the cool breeze at night. You won't want to go to bed, except you get to get up and do it all over again!
We visited the town of Dewey and got "Bushwhacked" at both Mamacita's and the Dinghy Dock, both awesome places full of Caribbean charm. But the highlight of our trip was our visit to Culebrita by boat taxi...snorkeling and hiking to a hidden beach that must be seen to be believed..We found paradise!! Don't miss Culebrita!
Thank you Peggy and Carlos for sharing your bit of heaven with all of us. It has provided memories for a lifetime!
