Gail Weinheimer , Woodacre, California Casa Pura Paz is well named. The home is lovely, comfortable and secluded, and even more beautiful than it appears in the pictures. We enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon snacks on the deck with the monkeys and birds and butterflies. We will definitely return to this paradise. 05/12/09

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This house is spectacular. Honestly, the pictures do not do it justice. Private and away from noise, this place has it all. Large, spacious, multi level, and amazing grounds with a private beach. Plus, the owner is really cool and booked our week's worth of excursions from zip lines to water rafting to catamaran...just amazing. Manuel Antonio is incredible with beauty that we have never seen before and we have been all over the world. Our girls had a blast feeding the monkeys right off our balconies each night!

Thanks Ken! It was truly one of the best weeks we have ever had vacationing!

Hands Down...Best place to unplug, even for our 4 teenage girls!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow...I can't express into words the great beauty of flora, fauna, animals, home, Costa Rican people, and our hosts Kim, Ken, grounds and caretaker-Jose, and their sister housekeepers.
We are a very well traveled family and we wanted to have our girls experience something that would move their souls.We knew that taking them to a spot of glorious nature, such as Costa Rica was our answer. Being that Costa Rica is a poor country compared to the US and other's that we have visited, many of the well popular CR tourist areas are modernized.That being said, Manuel Antonio has had an influx of American's to the area. Ken and Kim are Americans who have come to the area to take care of the Costa Ricans in this area.They are very charitable and give their time and love-hands on to the locals.
As for Casa Pura Paz...a pure balance of "nature for the urban traveler." The 5 storied "jungle" home was so spacious.I don't need to go over what is offered at the home, as they are listed above.What I do want to share is that we happened to travel when a rather large lightning storm blew in each day around 4 pm through the evening.We would start our day with Costa Rican coffee on the 3rd level(main house deck).We were greeted daily by 2 different monkeys and a huge sloth hung so gently in the closest tree to the deck for terrific pictures.Our hosts or Jose would chat with us about our plans for the day. The girls would wake(we brought in breakfast supplies from a nearby market) and then we were off to ziplining(Superman style too!), we have done this in many areas in the world, but this area by far surpassed all other experiences. We loved Jose's personal trip to Isla Damas through the mangroves and typical CR lunch with his friends(outstanding and cooked over a real fire).We visited the 2 beaches by the house and the one by the entrance of the park where we rented a surf board for the girls.Park was disappointing compared to the nature that abounded around Pura Paz.When we came home in the afternoon, we rested, napped, girls caught up on their social media (good WiFi) and then we would play Mexican Dominos(that we brought) or cards for 2 hours before we would go for dinner.We LOVED our many hours with the girls around the game table-what a bonus to get teenage girls to engage.We were all so relaxed and at home in the lovely Pura Paz.The restaurants in the area were excellent-Kapi Kapi, Emilios, Cafe Milagro, and El Mirador. PURA PAZ was a TRUE GIFT to our family.

Spectacular House in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We all agree that we were in the perfect place in the perfect place in Costa Rica. We saw an abundance and a wide variety of birds and animals. The house was spectacular, as was the beach, and the warm waters off the cove. Wildlife was ever present, with resident sloths, traveling troops of monkeys, toucans and other birds flying in to visit in the trees near the open teak wood porches. When we left to go on adventures, our biggest concern was what we might miss at the house during the day! The owners were very friendly and accommodating and the house manager was very extending. He even acted as tour guide for a boat trip through the mangroves, lunch at a neighboring farm and a swim at the deserted beaches of Isla Damas, which was unforgettable. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Beauty, adventure and relaxsation.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently returned from a two week stay at Casa Pura Paz. Our experience there was one of relaxation and pure enjoyment. The accommodations were excellent and the view spectacular. Yes, like most that have stayed there, we were visited frequently by white faced monkeys. They seem to have the routine down where they come by for some banana treats, almost demanding them. Howler Monkeys, although less likely to come close were visually evident but more importantly, we knew they were in the area by their loud roars. We too went on the Mangrove tour with Jose, the property manager for Casa Pura Paz. We were pleasantly surprised by the total relaxation, beauty and hospitality we experience from this tour and lunch excursion. It was a truly enjoyable time and Jose is a delight to be with. We took a few other waterfall hikes based on recommendations from Jose and he helped us with numerous other local matters.
We thoroughly appreciated the large deck, with fans, overlooking the ocean and cove. That combined with the refreshing plunge pool was a wonderful refuge following the day’s activities in the Costa Rica heat.
With so much to do and see in the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area it was a tremendous advantage to have the owners, Ken and Kim, available to provide suggestions and recommendations. Their suggestions for restaurants, shopping and tours was invaluable. Furthermore, they are two wonderful people whose friendship we thoroughly enjoyed. They have truly found their paradise and we were fortunate to be able to share it and have them there to guide us. When we return to the Central Pacific area we will surely stay to Casa Pura Paz. Regardless of what region we visit in the future we will be sure to touch base with Ken and Kim and hopefully enjoy some time on their boat. Thank you Ken and Kim.

Fantastic Home & Host

Fantastic Home & Host
  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and our first time out of the country with our two young daughters. We were excited to see the country, but knew little of the customs and "must sees" and hardly qualify as bilingual. So we were both excited and anxious as we rented our car in San Jose and followed Ken's directions to Casa Pura in Manuel Antonio.
Now, on the back end of our visit, I can say that Ken's house, it's amenities, it's location, and Ken's suggestions of things to do all exceeded my expectations. The house is very family friendly - well appointed with card tables and ping pong tables, a small pool, etc. but furnished in a way that is relaxing and not stuffy. It is surrounded on all sides by thick forest and we spent hours on the porch relaxing, listening to wildlife, allowing our eyes to adjust to see birds and butterflies and sloths. And no, the stories about the monkeys are not exaggerated. It was exhilirating to see them approach from the forest in the early morning and make their way onto the porch. That experience alone would have made the trip for the kids.
Also nice about the home is the access to the private beach. On two afternoons, my family trekked down and we were the only ones on the beach, playing in the warm water, exploring among the rocks, and watching the boats leave the marina for sunset cruises.
Also of tremendous value was Ken's recommendations of restaurants, places to visit, and adventures to under-take (as well as things to avoid). Highlights included zip-lining, a nearby beach you could drive onto, as well as Jose's mangrove tour (an amazing, off the beaten path experience). And, if we'd had the energy, I am sure Ken could have kept us busy and enthralled many more days.
The one thing I will say is that Ken's place can render other tours anti-climactic. For instance, by the time we walked into the actual Manuel Antonio park, it was tough for the girls to get excited about a sloth 200' away when they had had a chance to hold one in Ken's driveway. We hadn't realized how lucky we were until we ventured out and saw how other people (hundreds of people at a time with cameras clicking) were experiencing the wildlife.
In short, this place is fantastic for people energized by nature, appreciative of off the beaten path experiences, and, of course, fans of beautiful beaches, warm water and postcard views.
