A Superb Experience

  • 5 of 5

Pura Vista is excellent in every way!

This house is so much superior in person than the photos or video are able to reveal. Enter through a massive beautifully crafted front door into a wide open living and dining area. (Try to figure out how the supporting structure was made.) Beautiful wood covers the ceiling, resting on a massive curved main wall with romantic up lighting at night. From the pool or patio or breakfast table, look out on the most beautiful view of the Pacific to be found in Costa Rica! Watch the sun sink into the ocean each night from the pool or your own personal yoga platform. The house and grounds are completely private from the world. Feel free to commune with nature, sun bathe, or swim the pool in any stage of dress or undress you choose. If Santos, the caretaker should come into view he will simply turn away and maintain your privacy.

Each of the three bedrooms opens to an east facing patio for a magnificent sunrise announced each morning by Howler monkeys. The showers are designed to accommodate two and are the closest thing to showering outdoors. The master bedroom is as romantic as you will find. Storage is beyond your needs.

The kitchen is the envy of any cook from gourmet to amateur. You'll find a French press, juicer, blender and electric kettle as well as a coffeemaker and toaster oven on the enormous counters. Next to the gourmet gas stove is a huge fridge.

A two minute drive will take you to a surfer's paradise or a secluded beach. 5KM down the road you will find the minuscule town of Punta Banco. You can walk the beautiful, interesting, and secluded beaches here till your legs say no more or bring your board to surf in singular heaven. The actual town of Pavones has a beautiful, interesting park on the river where locals and surfers, alike, gather. People watching, especially on the weekend, is an experience.

Gustavo was fantastic as our host. He's Venezuelan born, San Francisco educated, speaks five languages fluently and looks like he should have been cast as lead in 50 Shades. So sayeth my wife.

We could not have done better than Pura Vista.

We shall certainly return.

We didn't want to leave…!

  • 5 of 5

We called this the "Big House". (Compared to Cozy Studio)

We simply did not want to leave this place…!! It was beautiful, very spacious, and it was perfect for what we were looking for in a vacation rental. It's disappointing there isn't a 6th star we could put on the rating. Gustavo, our wonderful host was excellent to deal with, as was his onsite maintenance staff.

How to describe this place other than amazing?…We woke up each morning to the sounds of howling monkeys and birds singing. With coffee and tea in hand, we stepped out onto the patio off our bedroom to greet the sun rise and an absolutely stunning view of jungle scape. All three bedrooms face and had the same jungle and sunrise view. Each bedroom had a sliding patio door opening onto its own patio with sofa or chairs and a coffee table.

We found fresh coconuts & papaya waiting for us on our front patio table, delivered to us by our host.

The living area was equally special, well appointed kitchen, and a comfy sitting area where the glass walls were huge sliding panels which opened up to the main patio.

When it got too warm we slipped into the infinity pool (clothing optional), ahhh, it was just right. Everything even the pool faced the Pacific, and what an incredible view…!

We were entertained each day by 3 Macaw parrots, which hung out in the fruit tree just in front of the patio.

Our days ended with us sitting in the patio lounge chairs, drinks in hand, staring into the sun setting directly in front of us. Each sunset completely different, and often were more magnificent than the one before. Totally relaxing, we didn't wan't to move from here. Definitely the right place for "The Putzers".

Everything is exactly as was described to us by our host, Gustavo. Our house was very clean, very modern, with a comfortable king bed, air conditioning, and ceiling fans.

You will need a car for this location, preferably an all wheel drive…the Costa Rican driving and road experience is, well, quite an experience!

We didn't do any touring while here and we prepared most of our own meals. The unit was very well equipped. There was a nice little Italian restaurant we dined at a couple of times. It's about a 3 minute drive from house. The owner, a nice lady and accommodating when requested to modify the menu.

The beach really is a 2 minute drive, and can be very private as well.

Thank you for everything Gustavo, and for helping to create a great experience.

We highly recommend this location.
