Exquisite Eco Property Has Luxury and Nature in Abundance with Amazing Golf Views

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a villa in Costa Rica for over 10 years, and this was our first villa rental in Pavones. Today was our last day and I've already rebooked for next year. It's that cool. The house is an architectural gem, nestled in the canopy of the rainforest, so its like your in the living room of the jungle. Nature's shows come every morning 5:50-7:30 and every evening just before sunset. Scarlet Macaws fly in, toucans surround us, howler monkeys sound off, titi monkeys pass through, and white face capuchin monkeys may stop by. Bring binoculars and a good camera with a long lens, you won't want to miss a sight or sound. Gustavo, the administrator, is top notch and full of good information. Santos is the artist behind the lush surroundings and sometimes brings fresh papaya, bananas rosadas, or peeled coconuts to you. Plus the ylang ylang tree sends wafts of sweet air into the house with some breezes, and the Moringa trees in the back are a great healing plant --we ate the leaves raw or in salad. Yeni takes great care to clean and change the linens -- which were heavenly. She also leaves a bottle of her own coconut oil. (Use if for cooking, or on skin or hair in the shower). The upper bedroom is like a little oasis of its own with even more spectacular views that the main house. If you have been to Costa Rica, you know the roads are not ideal and the bridges have a lot of 'character'. Also, this house is up a steep incline and not for the meek, although I had no problem navigating the driveway with the stick shift 4 x 4 SUV we rented. Loved Loved Loved the whole experience, and getting to know the locals. Thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home with us!

Owner's Response: The experiences that Teresa describes are the reasons why we fell in love with this area of Costa Rica. The surroundings are truly stunning and proximity to nature for our guests makes for an unforgettable experience. It was great having Teresa and her friends and family at the house and the suggestions she makes are not to be missed while spending time in Pavones, the detail in her words accurately describes a touch of every day life in Pavones. It was also great to see the level of involvement Teresa and her friends had with the locals and I think her eagerness to explore the area is what truly made her experience a memorable one. We encourage all our guests to do the same, get out there and explore! The southern zone has so much to offer. We are thankful for having such great guests and are very very happy that we will be seeing Teresa and her family and friends again next year. PURA VIDA

Amazing View and Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Great way to end our 3 week vacation!! We've traveled all over Costa Rica over the past 5 years staying at many different houses. Pura Vista Eco Villas ranks in the top of all the homes we have stayed at. From the layout of the house to the beautiful property and the jaw dropping view. What put it over the top and really made this property stand out was Gustavo (the property manager). He went out of his way to help right from the first time we connected to rent the house to the last day. Be sure to ask Gustavo for places to eat, surf, explore and chill. Pavones is a great place to unwind!! Added mention, the internet connection at the house was the BEST we have had at any rental. This made connecting with work quick and easy!! Thanks to Gustavo, Santos and Jenny for making our staying in Pavones amazing!!

Owner's Response: Hosting Jons family was great! They treated our home as if it was their own! Could not have asked for a better guest. Besides the fact that the house was left in tact , they were very easy going and fun to be around. All of our staff was delighted with their presence and genuinely enjoyed helping them with anything they might need, be that opening coconuts, helping with luggage or giving them tips on local knowledge. Jons son suffered a bad sun burn, but jenny, our cleaning lady quickly went to our back yard and picked some fresh aloe for him which alleviated the discomfort. This is the ideal guest for any home owner looking to rent their space! We look forward to having them back one day.

Amazing property, great view, great driving directions, clean.

  • 5 of 5

The driving directions were excellent. We got to the house and were warmly greeted by Santos. Gustavo even came in to visit us and have a chat, he answered all of our questions. I really enjoyed the daily cleaning service. The house, pool and view are beautiful. My daughters loved the place! There was even coffee for the 1st morning! I would definitely go back. Thank you Gustavo :)

An Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely Amazing! Luxury meets simplicity in small town Pavones. The Pura Vista Eco Villas offer all of the amenities necessary to enjoy a short or long term stay only one mile from the best surf in Costa Rica. The villas are very well ran and cared for by the Big 3: Gustavo, Santos, and Jenny. They treated us like family and went above and beyond expectations to make our stay unforgettable. The view from the house is captivating, and add in the salt water infinity pool with connected gazebo.. What more could you ask for? If I could rate my stay any higher, than I would! Thanks for the experience guys.. Cheers

Luxury and functionality in total paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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.
