If you appreciate architecture and design you will love Casa Pura Vida! It is beautifully designed with tongue and groove ceilings , and hand crafted arched windows and doors throughout. There are huge decks upstairs and downstairs with a hammock and Adirondack chairs right outside the bedrooms and living area . Our stair rails and deck rails are artistically sculpted as wrought iron leaves.
It is important to us that our guests feel the quality of being in a home, rather than a 'house rental' or hotel. We have decorated with love and attention as if we were inviting our closest friends to come visit.
Our house backs into the rainforest. Each day Titi monkeys and white faced monkeys play in the creek right off the deck. It is in the back of a residential neighborhood so it has the feeling of home, rather than a tourist destination. The property is not so secluded that you feel desolate. You will love relaxing by our pool. We are five minutes from Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

Chris and Penny Williams were from San Diego and bought this house on their honeymoon in 2002. In 2012 they moved to Costa Rica to open a shelter for girls caught in Human Trafficking. You can read about their project at www.seedsofhopehome.com
Casa Pura Vida is a beautiful house with unique architecture and is located in a great neighborhood. We wanted to have this place for our children and their children to come to for nature and monkeys!
