Wow! If I could have given ten stars I would have! This was by far one of the nicest properties I have ever stayed at! It's perched way up on a hill which means you have the privacy and the views! (Rent a car for your stay) Gustavo was extraordinary! He went above and beyond in hosting us and made sure we had everything we needed from dinner reccomendations to a boat trip to matapalo. He set everything up (even got me a surfboard from his friend) and even joined us and showed us all the secret gems of the south coast! Santos , who is the caretaker and security on property was the sweetest! He cut fresh coconuts from the tree and left them on the porch every morning! They even educated us on the wildlife on the property. Jenny comes and cleans everyday . Make sure to leave her a tip as its so nice to have someone else clean up! Well what a vacation! Can't wait to return! This place is a total treat/ from the pool to the exquisite home to the ridiculously comfortable temperpedic beds and waking up to the most magestic views! And it's super safe! They also have a guesthouse on property if you only need a room! I would certainly recommend this place to everyone I know. Everyone deserves their dream vacation!
This was our 5th visit to Costa Rica and our first trip to Pavones, we were swept off our feet! Pura Vista is even more spectacular in person, it is inviting, elegant and comfortable all at once. The house was way more than enough for our party of 2 couples.The layout allows for the perfect blend of socialization and privacy. Gustavo is a lovely and gracious host, we all wanted him to be our new best friend : )
He arranged some great trips for us- fishing/boating, surf lessons (Manuel is the best!), horseback riding, and a nature walk which was just enough to give us something new to do everyday but still left plenty of time to enjoy the beach and the house at our leisure. Yeni the house keeper was fantastic, she offered homemade coconut oil for sale which we snapped up and doused ourselves with everyday, what a treat. And Santos (the caretaker) we can't say enough about him! He brought us fresh fruit cut from the property everyday, made sure we saw the monkeys when they eluded us, and even taught us how to open our own coconuts. If you are thinking of staying here don't hesitate. This area is truly special and the house couldn't be better. Yes it's way down there, but that's what makes it so great. In Pavones you have the spectacular beaches all to yourself and at Pura Vista you enjoy a sunset dreams are made of. Every Single. Day. The worst part is, you will NOT want to leave.
Been using VRBO for years. Stayed some amazing places. This was w/out a doubt the best place we've ever stayed. Just beautiful beyond words. It's secluded. You're a long way from anywhere. But wow... just incredible. Only problem we had was we got word Gustavo went on vacation right before we went down. We didn't have anyone on site to coordinate w/. Santos and Jenny are extremely friendly and try to help, but they speak no English. But we made due and had a wonderful time. Hopefully, he's back now, or somebody else local has been brought in. Highly recommend seeking out Sean at Agua Vida for SUP lessons. Not hard to learn and the waves in Pavones are just incredible. I'm ready to go back.
There is so much to share about Pura Vista! We were a family of 7 with grandparents in tow. First off, Gustavo was such a pleasure to meet and was most helpful. He is knowledgeable about the area and had some good tips. My husband was able to surf with him a few times and he hooked my daughter up with some surf lessons. She loved it! The beach is just down the hill and is easily accessible if you have a car. You will need a 4x4 to access the property. As for the property, Pura Vista describes it all! You have the incredible oceanview on on side of the property and the jungle on the the other...the best of both worlds. You are surrounded by nature's beauty. The howler monkeys let out their deep groans and the birds make their daily calls and appearances. We specifically heard the call of the toucans as they sat in the trees near the front of the house. The villa is exactly as described, but more beautiful in person. The exquisite architecture allows you to open up the indoors to the outdoors with all the glass and huge sliding doors. Each room is spacious and has a patio to lounge. The air-conditioned rooms were also a bonus. You can really did not have to leave the property as the home was the perfect place to just relax. The kitchen was well-appointed. We cooked many meals. You can buy freshly caught fish and there is a small nearby market to stock up. If you don't feel like cooking, there is a small Italian restaurant down the hill. Gustavo also has some good recommendations for local eats. The pool was so refreshing and my girls swam in it everyday. In addition, there is a yoga platform with a view. My daughters led us through yoga and meditation exercises and it as the perfect studio. We enjoyed every minute and wish we had more time to spend at Pura Vista. Our plan is to return. Don't think twice about making a visit to Pavones and staying there. You will be well taken care of during your stay. Thank you again to Gustavo, Santos and Jinny for making our stay stellar!
There is so much to share about this private, secluded Pura Vista home. We were a family of 7 which included older grandparents. First, our host Gustavo was such a pleasure. My husband surfed several times with him and he was most helpful in sharing information about the area and meeting all of our needs. My daughter also took some surf lessons. She loved it! The beach is easily accessible and it is best to have a 4x4 to get to the villa. Santos and Jinny were also wonderful caretakers. As for the property, the house was exactly as described, but even more beautiful in person. Pura Vista really describes it all! There was plenty of space for our family and the air conditioned rooms were a bonus. The architecture really is exquisite. You get the experience of opening up the indoors to the outdoors with the large glass sliders and all the glass in the rooms. Every room has its own sitting area to lounge. The house is situated where you get the best of both worlds...jungle on one side and the impressive oceanview on the other! We heard the howler monkeys and always heard a variety of birds throughout the day. The toucans made their daily calls and appearances. Yes, you are surrounded by nature. We enjoyed cooking meals in the well appointed kitchen. You can buy fresh fish in town and there is a small grocery store to get your basics. If you don't feel like cooking, there is a cute little Italian restaurant at the bottom of the hill. There are also other good eats in town. The house was so comfortable you could really enjoy it all day long without having to leave. My girls love the refreshing pool, and it was the perfect size for all of us to swim. Also, there is a yoga platform just beside the house. My daughters led us in yoga exercises and meditation there. It was so relaxing. You also benefit from the incredible view from up there too! We had such a memorable trip and wish we had more time to spend there. We will surely be back and would highly recommend this place to anyone who is considering a stay in Pavones. Again thanks to Gustavo for being super helpful. You truly made the experience stellar!
Pura Vista is excellent in every way!
This house is so much superior in person than the photos or video are able to reveal. Enter through a massive beautifully crafted front door into a wide open living and dining area. (Try to figure out how the supporting structure was made.) Beautiful wood covers the ceiling, resting on a massive curved main wall with romantic up lighting at night. From the pool or patio or breakfast table, look out on the most beautiful view of the Pacific to be found in Costa Rica! Watch the sun sink into the ocean each night from the pool or your own personal yoga platform. The house and grounds are completely private from the world. Feel free to commune with nature, sun bathe, or swim the pool in any stage of dress or undress you choose. If Santos, the caretaker should come into view he will simply turn away and maintain your privacy.
Each of the three bedrooms opens to an east facing patio for a magnificent sunrise announced each morning by Howler monkeys. The showers are designed to accommodate two and are the closest thing to showering outdoors. The master bedroom is as romantic as you will find. Storage is beyond your needs.
The kitchen is the envy of any cook from gourmet to amateur. You'll find a French press, juicer, blender and electric kettle as well as a coffeemaker and toaster oven on the enormous counters. Next to the gourmet gas stove is a huge fridge.
A two minute drive will take you to a surfer's paradise or a secluded beach. 5KM down the road you will find the minuscule town of Punta Banco. You can walk the beautiful, interesting, and secluded beaches here till your legs say no more or bring your board to surf in singular heaven. The actual town of Pavones has a beautiful, interesting park on the river where locals and surfers, alike, gather. People watching, especially on the weekend, is an experience.
Gustavo was fantastic as our host. He's Venezuelan born, San Francisco educated, speaks five languages fluently and looks like he should have been cast as lead in 50 Shades. So sayeth my wife.
We could not have done better than Pura Vista.
We shall certainly return.
The property is located less than 2km from the world famous Pavones Break. Less than a 10 minute drive from the villa.
