Reviewed January 29, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

First and foremost Jorge and Stephanie wereamaizng host, they made the entire trip so easy from start to finish. You couldn't ask for me. The house has is beautiful and perfectly set up. Close to the beach with access to a private beach club. Cruise with the golf carts there and enjoy the day.

Anything you wanted to do they would set up. Truly a special trip!

Thanks so much for the nice review, really appreciate it! We enjoyed having you and the family here at our Pura Vida House again, and are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your vacation :-)

Getting to meet your family was really nice, and thank you for inviting and allowing us to come dinner with you all one night, that was special for both Steph and myself.

Hope that everything goes well with your tennis programs ... that they continue to grow exponentially, and hope to see you all again soon here in sunny Guanacaste, Costa Rica!

Pura vida amigos!!!

“House Rental + Resort Property = Perfeccion”
Reviewed January 24, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Located in the 4100 acre Hacienda Pinilla resort just west of Liberia on the Pacific coast, Jorge & Steph's Costa Rican home lets guests enjoy the quietness of being "at home" while a lengthy list of activities and restaurants awaits just minutes outside those doors. Our group of 10 (four in the guest house, 2 in the main house) enjoyed the daily breakfasts together before going our separate ways -- whether to the Beach Club, Surf lessons, ZipLining, or taking one of two mountain bikes available at the house out on some of the 30 miles of trails available throughout. Two golf carts were at our disposal throughout the week and getting to and fro was easy -- just quickly checking in with each other prior to taking off allowed everyone to get to where they needed to go. Our hosts were fantastic in steering us to great restaurants, shopping, local fare, and even leading morning runs and playing tennis with us. A much recommended group experience!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us such a nice review, really appreciate it especially considering how busy your schedule is.

We truly enjoyed hosting you both and the group at our villa in Hacienda Pinilla, it was a special week for us! Thank you for allowing us to come to dinner with you all several times, it was great to hang out with you. By the end of the week we felt like we had 10 new friends!

Hope to see you again soon either in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, or in Columbus, OH!

Pura vida amigos!!! :-)

One of the best experiences with Jorge/Stephanie, location and facilities. Did I mention their beach club sits on one of the best right-hand point breaks in CR!

Thanks so much for leaving us a good review, appreciate it! Your enthusiasm for surf, as well as the group's, was contagious! I think you all spent more time in the water than in land during your trip to Costa Rica :-)

It was a pleasure hosting you, hope to see you again soon in Guanacaste and Hacienda Pinilla at our Pura Vida House!!

“Amazing stay at Pura Vida House”
Reviewed January 15, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I'm not sure I will be able to adequately explain how much we loved Pura Vida House, Stephanie and Jorge and Costa Rica overall. Our family had a truly exceptional vacation; one we will never forget, and will long to repeat. Stephanie and Jorge are beyond fantastic! The booking was super easy through Trip Advisor—secure payments and ongoing communication with our hosts. Once we arrived, we had all the information we needed to get to and get into the villa. Jorge greeted us warmly, and gave us a tour and explained everything we needed to know. Throughout the trip, Jorge and Stephanie provided guidance and recommendations, and made several reservations for us for activities and dining throughout Guanacaste. They are well connected in Hacienda Pinilla, with privileges and courtesies that extend to their guests. The villa is awesome, and has everything you need for a comfortable, extended stay. We spent a lot of time at the resort beach house mere steps from the ocean. We enjoyed fishing, mountain biking, snorkeling, horseback riding, an RV tour, zip lining, surfing and body boarding, swimming, animal sitings, and lots and lots of outstanding food. Our group included ages 3 to 66, and each one of us had a brilliant vacation. Truly can't wait to return, and when we do, a call to Jorge and Stephanie will be the first we make. Pura Vida!

We are more than thrilled you all enjoyed your time in Costa Rica! It was genuinely our pleasure hosting you, and meeting you all. You guys are great people, and were a pleasure to be around!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to leave us such a nice review. Again, we're beyond thrilled you enjoyed Costa Rica, as well of course as your stay at our villa. We would have loved to have been able to take you all to the music festival in Santa Cruz ... it would have been great fun to take you there. Oh well, for next time!

We genuinely mean it when we say you have new friends in us down here in CR, as well as up in Ohio if you're ever out that way. You are a great family, and we wish you all great things this year.

Pura vida amigos!!! :-)

“Wonderful New Year stay at Pura Vida House”
Reviewed January 13, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Our family of 7 just stayed at Pura Vida House for New Year 2018. We had a great stay. Loved the tranquility of Pura Vida House. Really enjoyed the free access to the Beach Club, great pool, food, drink and service. Jorge and Stephanie were excellent, very attentive, responsive and helpful throughout our booking and our entire stay. Truly wonderful service. I highly recommend hiring a golf cart during your stay. We loved our time at Pura Vida House and would highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you

“Most Outstanding Place I've Ever Been To!”
Reviewed December 27, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Wow, what to say! So much to cover, from the home with it's outdoor living space, the food and the cooks, the drivers, the excursion guides and most of all, the owners, Stephanie and Jorge! We loved it all and will continue to come to this special location (unless we move there, of course) ;-) This is the second time I have taken a group of tennis players, and Jorge with his drills and lessons are the best; and then Stephanie's lessons of her own when you play against her, are so much fun and educational!! BUT, whether you are a tennis group, pickleball or just want a beautiful place to relax in the lawn chairs and pool, it's all yours. They both know so much about the country and their surroundings, and all the wildlife, food and places to visit; you can get lost just trying to decide what to do next! You can be assured that your visit will be handled with the best customer service around. No holds barred! Check it out for yourself and you won't regret it!
