Casa Pura Paz is an incredible, secluded Villa in the thriving rainforest that stands out from all of other Vacation Rentals in Manuel Antonio with its unique design, location, Ocean Views, and the only one where you can walk to 3 different beaches. Once you stay at Casa Pura Paz, you will not want to leave.
With many five star reviews, every feature of this majestic Villa has been impeccably designed to take advantage of the incredible Ocean Views and the encompassing lush tropical rain forest. The villa currently went through a tremendous landscaping project that includes a wide variety of tropical plants along with an amazing walking path throughout the enormous property. Multiple decks surround the house which provides great viewing areas but also allows you to come extremely close to nature with the frequent monkey visits (almost daily), hundreds of species of birds including toucans and scarlet macaws, sloths and many other species of animals. Casa Pura Paz allows you to feel like you are living in an outdoor zoo!
Beaches This Wonderful Estate is walking distance to 3 stunning beaches with two having historic turtle traps that Archaeologists believe that these were arranged by 16th-18th century Quepos indigenous people to function as a turtle trap and still today, you can see lobsters, fish and other sea animals located in these rock designed enclosures. No worries as high tides allow all of the animals to be set free but you get to see how creative our ancestors were many, many years ago. The first beach is rarely used by others and is a short hike from the Villa with the second minutes away where you can witness the turtle traps and if you are looking for water activity, Playa Biesanz is a third beach where you can rent snorkel gear, kayaks and other water toys. If water activity is not of interest, we have several hiking trails through the jungle that will certainly allow you to burn off a few calories before you come back for a cold beer.
Top Floor The top spacious floor of the Villa offers exceptional ocean views which are extremely unique just for this home. Additionally, this floor is perfect to just relax and take in the magical scenery or perfect for yoga, a private massage session. You can also take advantage of the onsite exercise equipment or enjoy a game of ping pong or billiards.
Middle Floor This floor includes the main living area, complete with memorizing views, open kitchen and living room that opens to the large veranda and is the gathering area for all to enjoy the incredible views and wildlife. The floor is totally air conditioned but open the entire area and the fresh ocean breeze will take you to dreamland.. Walk up a couple steps to the grand bathroom and two large air conditioned bedrooms. Both bedrooms are complete with king beds that can be converted to two twins (in each room), if required.
Lower Floor This floor includes an air conditioned Master Suite with a king size bed, spacious private bathroom, ocean view and a relaxing balcony overlooking the jungle setting and ocean vista. The swimming pool is also located on this level.

Six of us stayed at Casa Pura Paz for a week in early march 2020 and had an absolutely amazing experience. The house was exactly as pictured, and very comfortable for all of us. When at the house, we spent most of our time outside on the decks, watching the wildlife and admiring the views. White-faced capuchin monkeys visited and were hilarious, and we also saw lots of sloths and toucans in the trees around the property. The views from the decks are spectacular, and the beach is a short (though steep) walk from the house.
Camilo, our concierge, also added to our wonderful experience. he answered our numerous questions immediately, called us cabs at all hours, arranged wonderful excursions, and recommended great restaurants. All the logistics for the different excursions that he arranged for us worked out seamlessly. Lucy returned the house to spotless condition every day, despite our best efforts to thwart her :), and Jose was friendly and helpful as well.
in terms of excursions, we loved all of them. The jungle Buggy trip, Tarcoles River Crocodile Tour and jet ski Tour were probably our favorites, but we also loved the night time paddleboard trip and the mangrove boat tour. All of the tour guides and drivers were friendly, helpful, and prompt.
We highly recommend Casa Pura Paz to everyone and also are going to put this on our list of places that we need to return to!
Hi Samantha,Thank you for your 5 star review and we are thrilled that your group had a very memorable and stress-free experience. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again on a future vacation.Pura Vida,DonFounder, CR Vacation Properties
Our party of 6 [Carolyn(Carrie)Kolb] recently stayed at Pura Paz. We’re all back in the US resuming our normal lives but reliving some wonderful Costa Rican memories. We want to personally thank you for your part in such a special trip. Also, please extend our thanks to the owner for sharing this beautiful property. We had a terrific time and appreciated everything you all do to preserve it. We enjoyed the sloths, the birds, the monkeys, the views, the water, house amenities, Lucy’s help, Jose’s tour and knowledge of the environment, the chef’s awesome meals and love for his family, and so much more. Everyone was warm, friendly and welcoming. Even the guard helped us by spotting a sloth. THANK YOU so very much!
Darrylin Smith and my Costa Rican buddies
The name says it all, this place is nothing but pure peace . My gf and I came for some relaxation and recharging and we got more than what we bargained for... The villa is amazing, the pictures don't do it enough justice, the view is breathtaking, the staff on site (Jose and Luci) are very accommodating, and our concierge Camilo was fantastic. We loved the location, the property feels like a private island In the middle of the jungle yet the beach is a few minute walk down a private trail which was convenient, very close to grocery shops, bars and restaurants. We had frequent entertainment during our stay, including the famous whiteface monkeys and sloths which are found all over the town including this property. We highly recommend this property for guests with families , group of friends , or couples looking for a getaway.
Hi Mani,Thank you for your 5 star review and truly appreciate your comments towards our very dedicated staff (Lucy, Jose and Camilo). We are thrilled that the villa exceeded your expectations and you are absolutely correct being so remote, you do experience a very secluded area - just like a private island..We hope to see you again,Much appreciated,DonFounder, CR Vacation Properties
We were over the top excited with our stay at the newly renovated Casa Pura Paz Villa as it is located in such a magical setting with unmatched views and tons of wildlife. Every day we had visits from monkeys, toucans our friendly neighbor sloth, iguanas and every other type of bird that you can think of. The staff tended to all of our needs and the Concierge was always available at all times to answer any questions, provide recommendations on activities, places to eat which made our vacation so relaxing and stress free. We can't wait to come back.
Our stay at Casa Pura Paz was extraordinary!! The house is even more spectacular than the pictures. Gorgeous ocean views and breezes, birds, monkeys, sloths, and ex on the premises theJose, and Luci were around each day to make sure the place was spotless and that we had everything we needed. Shiona was so helpful in familiarizing us with the area and recommending and arranging trips, restaraunts, beaches, etc. She even drove around with us so that we could get our bearings!!
Hola James,Thank you for your review and comments and we are thrilled that you loved the villa and our overall staff. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.Much appreciated,Don
We stayed at Casa Pura Paz to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. Everything was amazing--exactly as promised and more. Ocean view, check. Comfortable, clean, well appointment "home away from home" with the friendliest staff and a concierge from heaven, check. Monkey visits, check. And more... My only regret is that we didn't spend our entire 2 week holiday here.
Greetings Jaime,We truly appreciate your review and we also believe Casa Pura Paz is "Paradise on Earth". Next time, you will need to extend your stay as we would love to host you again.Pura Vida,Don
We are two couples who traveled to Costa Rica. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Manuel Antonio, and were very pleased with Casa Pura Paz. We did not have a car, but found it very easy to walk to the restaurants and grocery stores. The Casa itself is amazing. All the bedrooms were well appointed and offered both ceiling fans and A/C. The pool was very refreshing, given the warm temperatures. We walked down to the beach - not too strenuous of an adventure, but an adventure all the same. The beach was sandy and the surf was gentle. The water temperature was perfect, and the beach was not at all crowded.
As for the wildlife...we had a sloth in a tree on the property, plus you could hear the howler monkeys in the morning and early evening. Squirrel monkeys were regular visitors, as well as white faced monkeys. What made this Casa even more spectacular is the concierge/staff, Shiona. She reached out to us as soon as we confirmed our booking, and was always available to help with securing a private shuttle, scheduling a tour, printing important documents, and just basic hand holding. What a huge help! We highly recommend booking any of the houses that are a part of this company's stable of homes. They are immaculate and you won't be disappointed.
Hola Cindy,Thank you for your kind review and we are thrilled that you had a "Fabulous stay" at our recently overhauled, Casa Pura Paz.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again.Pura VidaDon
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Costa Rica and the Casa Pura Paz operated by CR Vacation Properties is to be commended their fabulous service! The pictures listed on the HomeAway site were spot on! The house in a beautiful, location with great privacy and fantastic staff! Luci and Jose, the staff at the house did an awesome job and were so friendly! Shiona, our amazing concierge, did an outstanding job helping us with the planning of this trip start-to-finish!! She pre-arranged our transportation to and from the airport and the tours and everything always went smoothly!
We so thoroughly enjoyed all the wild life we could see right from the decks of our house - monkeys, sloths, toucans and other birds!
Manuel Antonio/Quepos area is definitely a must see area of Costa Rica and you won't be disappointed staying at the Casa Pura Paz! Pura Vida!!
Hi Tina,We would like to thank you for generating such a great review of your experience staying at our Casa Pura Paz Villa. We're delighted to hear that our staff was very accommodating and that our trained wildlife (monkeys, sloths, toucans), came by to greet you on a regular basis.Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you on a return visit.Pura VidaDon
My husband and I came here with our sons (19 and 14) and my 70 year old father. We all left with a very favorable impression of this area of Costa Rica, its people, and a true fondness for the owners (Kim and Ken), their house manager (José), and housekeeper (Shirley sp.?).
The house is truly amazing, with a very comfortable layout, incredible view, and access to all the wildlife, activities, and tranquility one could hope for. Ken and Kim walked a beautiful line between being accessible and helpful when needed, while respecting our privacy and letting us enjoy our family time together. I only wish that we would have had more time to visit with these truly generous and kind people.
As many have mentioned before, José's tour is incredible, and provided a great deal of entertainment for all of us. We also spent a day on the Nelsons' beautiful boat, where we caught (and released) beautiful sailfish and dined on Giovanni's wonderful cooking. The entire crew was professional, kind, and made the day aboard another highlight of our stay.
We hope to come stay in this beautiful home again! In my opinion, you could not find a better place to stay while in CR.
The pictures of the mansion are exactly what this place looks like, but the view is even better!
There is almost no need to go to Manuel Antonio State Park as it is literally here! We saw 3 kinds of monkeys, sloths, humming birds, toucans and macaws. The horses that the owners have are also grazing around and are very friendly.
The beach is a bit of a hike, but good exercise. Bring what you need for a few hours. Bring swim shoes as there are some rocks. We only saw about 6 other people while we were down there. So you practically have it to yourselves!
The local restaurants are very good. We had a car while we were there so it was easy to get around. We made our own breakfast, lunches and a few dinners ourselves. Not a gourmet kitchen but has enough to make meals. Sitting on the deck eating dinner is as good as a restaurant view.
We would love to come back!!!
If you like a rustic trip that you really will have fun make sure to book a trip with Jose to go to the Mangroves and a private Island. This was the highlight of our trip.
Also get a massage on the observation deck if you can. Delightful!
Finally, Kim and Ken are great hosts, very warm and friendly. They can help you out with whatever you need.
