This gated, two-level villa is located on the northern shores of Costa Rica's Gold Coast in Guanacaste Province, where it sits on an acre of land overlooking the ocean. Lounge on nearby Playa Ocotal each morning. Fill your afternoons with tennis games, spa treatments, and refreshing swims at Coco Bay Estates. Then, spend your evenings dining on your private pool terrace and watching the sunset over the water. You're only a few minutes away from the Beach Club's breathtaking saltwater infinity pool.

Whether you're planning a family reunion or an annual vacation with loved ones, you'll enjoy 4,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Wake up each morning to grind fresh local coffee beans in one of the two kitchens (with dishwashers), crack open a novel outside on the balcony, and use the free WiFi to plan a sailing, horseback riding, or stand-up paddleboarding excursion.

When you're not walking to the nearby black sand beach, you can sunbathe on the villa's terrace, take a dip in the partially covered private pool, and host family barbecues in the expansive outdoor eating area, lounge, and bar. Walk over to The Club at Coco Bay Estates to take a yoga class, play tennis, or swim in the tropical pool, and return home to unwind in one of the two jetted tubs or in front of one of the four flatscreen cable TVs.

You'll always remember the time you spend on the stunning coast of Guanacaste Province - reserve your stay in Playas del Coco today!

Linda Villa, buena limpieza pero la pisicina el primer dia no se pudo utilizar
Manager response:
María, estamos muy contentos de que le haya encantado la villa y haya disfrutado de su estancia! Lamentamos que la piscina no se pueda utilizar el primer día y esperamos que la compensación que recibió ayude a su decepción. Gracias por ser nuestra invitada.

La casa es muy cómoda y grande, me gustó mucho que tiene muy buenos implementos para cocinar y la cantidad necesaria de acuerdo con la cantidad de huéspedes. Tuvimos un inconveniente con una de las habitaciones que estaba sin limpiar pero Kevin nuestro host fue mucho más allá para solucionarlos el inconveniente y en general el servicio de Kevin fue buenísimo y mas allá de lo esperado. Nos encantó nuestra estadía en Pura Vida Villa, solamente tomen en cuenta que no es una propiedad apta para discapacitados o personas con problemas de movilidad, ya que tiene muchas gradas. Pero la casa está muy bien, muy cómoda, cerca de la playa y de supermercados.

We rented this home for 6 days in June. It’s got lots of space, breathtaking views and the private pool area is an oasis. The quick review is we would absolutely rent it again! Here are a few helpful things to know though. Stop at the grocery store in Playa Coco on your way. There was only 1 roll of paper towels, 1 roll of TP in each bath, no extra trash bags or coffee filters so you’ll want to grab extra of those plus your groceries. There was plenty of dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner & bath wash for the week. The driveway is very steep, we hired a driver for the week and his van couldn’t make it so we walked it. It wasn’t a problem for us, but you need to be in decent physical condition. The walk to the beach and Father Rooster’s took about 15 mins with hills. The food is great, go just before sunset (it’s stunning from there) and ask for Adrian. The club amenities you have access to are not within walking distance except the extra pool (we liked the one at the house better anyway). That was disappointing because we didn’t rent a car and we’re going to workout and play tennis daily. There are 2 beach towels per bath so if you have lots of people you may need more. We couldn’t get the hot tub to work, not sure if it’s broken or user error. It would be really nice if the owners left a pool net. Since we were here in rainy season the daily shower and wind brought in debris to the pool. With a net we could have easily cleaned it up quickly before hoping in, but we had to use our hands or wait on maintenance. Kevin was helpful and typically quick to respond on WhatsApp. He gave a great recommendation for pizza delivery, Pizza Zilounge El Coco. Overall this vacation and home were in our top 3 vacations ever! We highly recommend 3Monkies for transport and adventure tours (Buena Vista & White Water rafting were our favorites), Pacific Coast Discoveries for a boat, beach tour with BBQ on the beach and Mar Azul in Playa del Coco for an incredible Surf and Turf meal. We really hope to come back soon and bring friends with us!!!

The place we initially booked cancelled us the morning of our stay, so we booked Pura Vida last minute and couldn't have been happier. Playa Ocotol is gorgeous and and this house with the views was Pura Vida!

We loved the swimming pool because we had our 4 grandkids and this pool has a lot of shade so it was perfect for us the home has a lot of space for a big group, Kevin was wonderful at welcoming us and checking in to see if we needed anything.
than you Kevin for being a great host!

thank you we will be back when the grandkids come again.

Our family of ten had a very comfortable stay at the Pura Vida Villa. The property is as pictured and very beautiful! The private pool was a huge plus! We had a couple minor issues with appliances, however maintenance was very responsive and easy to get ahold of. I’d definitely recommend this property, especially to those traveling with large parties.” 13190

Absolutely wonderful house, location, pool, etc. Everything was excellent! Highly recommended.

As others have reported, this home has an incredible pool and patio hang-out area. Our family group of 10 adults spent much of our time there. There are amazing views of the ocean from both the house and patio. The patio is shaded all day and most of the time there is a breeze. The surface of the patio was slippery when wet so we learned to be cautious when exiting the pool. The main level kitchen was spacious enough for 2 or 3 cooks. The layout of the house is not completely clear from the photos. There are three bedrooms upstairs. One is the master bedroom and the other two each have 2 beds in them. There is an apartment in the lower level with one bed. The fifth bedroom is like a motel room that is accessible from the outside of the house. There is an outside staircase that connects to two levels of the house, but no internal stairs. The beds are comfortable. During our stay we discovered some electrical problems. For example, the dishwasher tripped the circuit breaker and had to be reset after it was used. It would have been helpful to have more cleaning equipment in the house. There was one much used broom and dustpan and no mop or vacuum. A leaf blower and brush to clean the grill would have been nice for the patio. And finally, the local troupe of howler monkeys enjoyed pranking us by leaving "gifts" on the patio. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay. Pura Vida!

Spectacular ample home, nice amenities, great views. The location is convenient to several beaches in the Gulf of Papagayo area.

The grounds of the house were beautiful and the pool and outdoor bar was so fun! The inside of the home needs a little maintenance (we had issues with a toilet, an AC unit, the dishwasher, and actually didn’t have power in one room). A few updates to the inside would make this home perfect.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest leaving feedback and we are glad to hear this guest enjoyed their stay! All of these issues have been addressed. Thanks!

Everything is so spacious and private!! There were three separate families in our group and there was room for everyone. The apartment downstairs is very cozy and private, the one upstairs is very luxurious. We had a wonderful time, Tatty was very professional but also very accomodating and so nice!! We are definitely coming back!

Bellisima propiedad.
Cassie W. Mar 2018
The house was perfect for our group of 11 and the staff was very kind and accommodating. The pool area is fabulous. We wouldn't do Costa Rica any other way. Playas Del Coco is a charming town and we felt a much better place to stay than Tamarindo which we visited. Visit the Diamante Eco Park. The zip line, animal sanctuary and beach were so much fun and one of our favorite things we did on our trip.
Tammie H. Mar 2018
The outdoor space was perfect for our family getting together and enjoying meals and pool time. The basement suite and bedroom was perfect for our guests. Easy and short walk to the beach. Had an excellent time!
Maria W. Jan 2018
The home easily accommodated our group of 15. It was a nice house, great views and only a short walk to the beach. We definitely enjoyed our stay!
Elise K. Dec 2017
Our whole extended family stayed here for a week. Ages ranged from 3 years old to 65. Loved the space of the home and the outdoor pool area. We also loved the close access to Father Rooster and Playa Coco. Also, the ability to use the Ocotal Beach Club and Club at Coco Bay was phenomenal. We highly recommend this house and this team!
