About Leslie Murray

Love to surf and the beach, I have traveled many places in Central America. Finally I built our beautiful house here on the Nicoyan Peninsula 3 years ago from the ground up! We have been bringing our daughter here since she was a baby. It's a special vacation home for us and we hope you will enjoy it too!


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

All i can say is thank god we had this beautiful place to return to at the end of the long, hot, dusty day! I was not prepared for the dust or the heat of santa teresa..or the big spiders for that matter..but this lovely place was such a great place to come back to, it made our stay far more enjoyable than i think it would have been. Laurie, Johnny and Jenny were all very helpful, wonderful people and helped us with everything from lighting the barbq to booking a ride to the airport for us. I would definitely stay at this vrbo again, but for us, the heat is a definite deterrent..would have to come in the green season i think. One possible drawback, or at least something for future renters to be aware of..and leslie the owner will tel, you, is you ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE A 4X4 TO GET UP THE DRIVEWAY!! Our last night there was awesome as we got to see 6 howlers, 2 toucans, our usual giant cane toad, the usual bats and little lizards..tons of wildlife! Pura vida for sure!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home. Two minutes from Playa Carmen and the beach. Nestled in the mountain side for peace and quiet, it is perfectly appointed with everything you need. Lounge at the pool or head down to the beach. Close to restaurants and grocery store. Zac and Leslie the owners are a pleasure to deal with. Laurie the property manager is amazing once you are there. From start to finish a great experience. Looking forward to booking this property again.

Perfect, private and brand new!

  • 5 of 5

Ive been to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais 7xs and stayed at some of the most expensive resorts and houses there...found my heaven! The house is brand new! Amazing views and very private. My fiancé, his father and I stayed in the home. The rooms are placed perfectly to have privacy and they had their own patio to rejoin at the pool. The view is amazing! Every day rain or shine 5pm, large groups of whitefaced and howler monkeys cross right in front! There are toucans in the morning and gorgeous butterflies all day. Afternoon rains would come in and the mist would settle in the distance like a fairy tale! Best part is this is the amazing array of animals can be watched from inside the living room or sitting in the pool! Located up the street from the Mal Pais/Santa Tersea cross road, as well as the road to Cobano/Montezuma and there is absolutely no dust. This place is secure and quiet, you can make noise and have silence. Kitchen is very practical and huge. This is Pura Vida indeed!!!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful house for 10 days and enjoyed every minute of my time there. It is private and surrounded by beautiful trees, that offer the opportunity to peep all kinds of wildlife including a family of monkeys! The pool was clean and perfect for lounging with a wrap around bench and a continuous flowing waterfall to the level below. The upstairs has two large bedrooms, with plenty of closet space and really comfy beds. The bathrooms are sleek and bright with rain head showers and a moon roof in the master. Huge closets! We used the kitchen constantly, blending drinks and making fish tacos from our fresh catches of the day- it had everything we needed. There is beautiful hardwood everywhere and the floors in the main room are made of an absorbent shell-type material, so no problem going from pool to kitchen and back. The little apt downstairs is equally styled and stocked. Lori and Sebastian were our go-to people while we were there, they took care of us from renting quads to going fishing, to making sure we had everything we needed while we were at home. I would totally recommend Casa Tres Vidas to anyone looking to spend some quality time in Santa Teresa; it was perfect!

Perfect ladies getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in April with 3 women, the house was perfect. Just far enough from town to feel like you are in the middle of the jungle, but a short quad ride to mal pais. There are 2 large bedrooms upstairs, and another downstairs with a kitchenette, plenty of space for a group of friends. The main kitchen is huge and well equipped, great for making those afternoon margaritas! The plunge pool was also amazing, you can soak and watch the monkeys passing by in the trees. I would highly recommend staying here, it is the perfect getaway.
