If you want privacy, space, luxury, majestic views, a perfectly covered pool surrounded by bananas, palms and bamboo, as well as toucans and monkeys in your yard then this is the place for you. This is not to mention the absolute perfect location of the house. Great grocery store 10 minutes away, never ending beaches of all types to explore, a myriad of high quality restaurants, national parks, waterfalls, excursions galore, banks, stores, a great bakery and even a place nearby to buy fresh and cheap local fish. We shopped around for a home to rent in the Dominical area and the price of Casa Pura Vida is beyond fair. There are no surprises, the house is exactly the way it is advertised it to be.
Myself and husband travelled from England to stay in the aptly named Pura Vida for two weeks. The house and garden are beautifully maintained and cleaned to the highest standard. The grounds were our personal nature reserve. Everything we needed was provided including well equipped kitchen, efficient and quick washing machine and dryer, fast and reliable Internet connection and extremely comfortable beds! Each morning we sat having our early morning coffee on the ocean view bedroom terrace, watching and listening to the wildlife. From here we saw white faced capuchin monkeys, countless species of birds including toucans, macaws, hummingbirds, a variety of butterflies and much more. The swimming pool area was great, equipped with loungers and hammocks and on some occasions we swam whilst watching the monkeys. From outside the Monkey Hideout cabina we watched and photographed the Howler monkeys in the forest.
As we drove into the property for the first time the four of us knew right away this was going to be the vacation of a lifetime. As gorgeous as the pictures are online, they cannot compare to the immense beauty that the house, property and views have to offer. On the property you will find many types of insects, birds, frogs, lizards and so many types of butterflies! Howler monkeys live nearby in the trees around the monkey hideout and can be heard and/or seen daily.

The property is private and secluded, designed for you to relax in the pool and well-maintained grounds and view in comfort the rich tropical life.
