Perfect Vacation Villa, Life is good!
Pura vida is the ultimate vacation home. Very clean and house is huge! We had 10 guests and plenty of room to spare. Can easily fit 4 to 5 families. Everything you can want from a vacation home. Great pool,outdoor shower, wrap around porch, hammocks, TVs, big rooms , AC, comfortable beds . Enjoyed the Short walk to beach and restaurants. Owner was very courteous and quick to respond to our questions. Cant wait to go back again!
Great property close to all the surfing beaches.
We had a great opportunity to reunite the family. The property manager was very helpful throughout our stay. The rooftop terrace has a great view but needs reconstruction. Would recommend this property for large groups. The cable and wi fi didn’t work but who needs them in paradise.
Great potential but very disappointing experience
Pura Vida is an amazing house, very spacious and on a great location near the beach. Nevertheless, our experience this past weekend was HORRIBLE. The property was not ready to receive guests. It was extremely dirty, floors, bathrooms, beds, etc. The soles of my kid's feet were black after only 5 minutes of walking around barefoot. There was lizard and cockroach excrement everywhere including in beds. Two out of the six bedrooms were unusable because the a/c’s were not working. This resulted in kids sleeping on the floor and two had to share beds with the parents. There was no internet and no TV (my husband was not happy to miss thanksgiving day football games).
For our thanksgiving dinner there were only 2 wine glasses (for 6 adults). The refrigerator was not working and the ice cream we brought for the pecan pie was soup. The oven we used to cook the turkey was extremely dirty.
Even though the local property administrator tried make some amends, many things had no fix, the a/c being the most critical as the technician they brought said they had to be replaced. The owner of the property never reached out to us, despite my multiple emails to him to try to talk and resolve certain situations. For the amount of money we were paying per night, I expected a 5 star property with more than just the basics, instead we were faced with a filthy, run down, unkempt house. In summary, what had the potential to be a great stay ended up being extremely disappointing. I hope they turn this around so future guests can enjoy this nice house.
Perfect Rincon Experience

Trip of a lifetime!
Returned from a one-week family reunion at Casa Pura Vida and every second was amazing! Our "immediate" family consisted of our elderly parents, three adult sisters, our spouses and children (for a total of 11 people under one roof). Thanks to Pura Vida we had plenty of spaces on the property to be together and plenty of places to disappear to when we needed privacy. We comfortably hosted our large extended family (who live locally) for many home-cooked family feasts around the banquet table on the wrap-around porch, the kitchen island, dinning table, and beautiful pool area. Everything about the space and relaxed atmosphere at Casa Pura Vida helped make it the most memorable family trip we've ever had. Thank you for opening up this beautiful home to us!
Bliss Out Retreats LOVES Casa Pura Vida!!
Everything was perfect and the house manager and owner made this a seamless experience for us and our retreat guests! The grounds are gorgeous and well-maintained - from the pool, to the decks where we practiced yoga every day, to the sun roof where we caught some rays and watched the sunset. Everything was so clean upon our arrival and anytime we needed anything the house manager was so hospitable. Thank you, we can't wait to come back!!
