Wonderful Girl's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sorority sisters and I went there for a girl's trip and had a wonderful time! The house is gorgeous, secure and secluded. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. The Roku is awesome with plenty of movies for entertainment. We played games and enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We were in town to visit family in Forest City, about a 20-30 minute drive from the cabin. The cabin was very clean, nicely decorated, and had the essentials you would need to feel at home. We have att cellphone service which did not work at the cabin, however there is wifi that works greats and a landline to use if needed. The property is private with beautiful mountain views and a great deck to relax on. The beds were comfy. We booked through VRBO and were slightly disappointed with the process because it gives you a instant quote and then I was called to be charged an additional $50 for our 2 dogs (which i checked in the search criteria, so i thought that was already included in the quote price). The cabin itself was great and i would recommend staying here.

Secluded and quiete

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our 2 teenage kids. It was always nice to return to this quiet and secluded cabin after a day of hiking, kayaking, water rafting. The cabin is very well stocked with everything you need to cook homemade meals. We enjoyed spending the evening out on the porch. The local craft - whiskey distillery is a nice place to visit.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful bostic cabin was a real treat, we didn't want to leave! The cabin itself was gorgeous, very clean, and well furnished. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and appreciated the closet full of spices and supplies, as well as the keurig complete with k cups. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog and we loved the little marked trails around the property. The location was convenient for hiking in nearby south mountains state park, don't miss the amazing waterfall! All in all, it was the prefect weekend getaway.

Great get-away, with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

While we do a lot of travel, I very rarely write reviews of where we stay, but out experience at Pura Vida merited this review.

First, let me say that the property is incredibly beautiful, and looks just as it appears online; very scenic and homely with the best appliances that you would need in your home, even including an Oreck vacuum.

After checking in, we noticed that the house, while extremely gorgeous, and surrounded by a very scenic view, had a lot of pet fur. We weren't aware that it actually encourages folks with pets to bring along their pets. Problem is a couple folks in our party are allergic to dog fur (possibly not a problem for a pet owner, but obviously it was for us) . This was an initial disappointment. Upon contacting Evolve Vacation, the response was simply incredible. Not only were we immediately responded to, despite the time of the day, and very close to Christmas, but the owners of the property, John and Deb, drove an hour or more to meet us personally, and asked if there is there is anything they could do to make our stay more pleasant. They are so warm, and personable, and really demonstrated customer service that is rarely seen. After apologizing for the inconvenience, they went so far as to refund us the cleaning fee, without us making such request.

Needless to say, we will highly recommend this beautiful property to anyone seeking a beautiful, tranquil get-away, without feeling like you are missing anything from home.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This home is as lovely as the pictures reveal. The decor is very up to date and is furnished with high end furniture and appliances for an added bonus. It is nestled in the mountainside of a gated community. Space between properties is more than adequate for a private getaway. I would highly recommend this property to other families looking to get away.
