Thank you so much for your hospitality! We really enjoyed our stay her at "LA CASA DE PURA VIDA" Your house is beautiful - we hope to return soon.
When we arrived our first impression was "WOW" are we really staying here. The place is amazing! Scott & Marlene greeted us and went over all the house rules. The house is decorated with a true Florida beach theme. They showed us the Kayaks and how to use the boat just in case we felt adventurous and want to go sightseeing. Unfortunately this being a work trip we were not able to use the boat but just coming home after a long day at the convention center and being able to relax on one of the three decks was a blessing. Needless to say we slept like babies as the beds were super comfy. Scott & Marlene were wonderful, putting together a book of restaurants and places to see that included directions from the house. Who could ask for anything more when staying in a new area for the first time, extremely helpful. I would book this house again in a heart beat! Thank you for making our business trip feel less like business and more like a vacation.
Since this was my first VRBO rental, I was a little nervous about what to expect as the main organizer of a trip with my family and friends. We were not disappointed, everyone, kids and adults alike, had a wonderful time at La Casa De Pura Vida! Scott and Marlene are amazing hosts who went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely visit at their wonderfully appointed house which while so close to everything, yet seems so far away!
The children, aged 9 - 12, loved the house, games, TVs and the SPA pool. My mother cooked almost everyday and found everything in the well-stocked pantry. The house has amazing balconies (including a roof top one) with lovely views of the water where we spotted manatees, birds and acrobatic fish. All the bathrooms are not only clean, but very beautifully redone. We enjoyed kayaking and boating which were there for us to use.
What made the stay extra special is the hospitality of Scott and Marlene. They are simply wonderful people. The day we were going to the beach, we found that they left us beach chairs, toys and even a cooler, right next to our car - how awesome is that! Scott graciously offered us a sunset boat tour of the bay which was definitely a highlight of our overall trip. Although they live downstairs (completely separate and we had no issues with privacy) of the house, we could hardly tell they were even there; they truly made us feel that we were the only ones in the house and always there when we needed them. Thank you so much, Scott and Marlene. We are most definitely coming back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Scott and Marlene toured us through the house, letting us know how to operate everything, including the boat and kayaks. The house was beautiful, sparkling clean, and had all the amenities we required. The beds were very comfortable, the house had lovely views out on the decks, and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. We have family that live nearby and it was nice to host them for dinners! The gas grill came in very handy. We would definitely stay again!
Property and grounds well maintained. Perfect getaway for a group in my opinion and I will DEFINITELY go back to this property in the near future. Property is in the water. Water activities available at no extra cost. Kayaking for great morning workout! Basketball goal and corn hole game. Perfect for any type of group (Family or Friend getaway). I already recommended a co worker for his Male-ManVacation with some of his buddies.
Have booked several vacation resorts on line and none compare to this! The house was immaculate with everything you could imagine. The listing was very accurate, amenities were over the top (very large swim/soak hot tub, boats, kayaks, fire pit, third floor sun/observation deck, even a tiki hut bar and more!) The little things like providing extra linens/towels, even beach towels were a plus, along with comfortable beds. The owners were the most gracious people....always accommodating and available should you need something. Highly recommend the boat ride into the Bay (the dolphins were so beautiful)..... Restaurants and grocery stores are a short 5-7 minutes away. We had a wonderful girls trip and would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to relax and have a fun filled experience! Thanks Scott and Marlene, Lynn K.
I was so impressed with La Casa I had to leave a review. The house surpassed my every expectations, from the views from the balconies, the waterside fire pit, the hot tub, to the accommodations in the house, everything was perfect. Location was perfect as well, as it is very close to everything, yet felt secluded and quiet. Scott and Marlene were terrific to deal and made our stay very comfortable and memorable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
La Casa De Pura Vida is well located to satisfy all your needs. Boating, Jet sking, Fishing, Kayaking, Sports Events, Golfing, Theme Parks, Business Centers and Beaches. Close to everything yet away from it all.
Come visit La Casa and Live, Laugh, Love, and Relax.
