The place is great, spacious even to four people. The kitchen is well equipped and the place was clean. The aircon was the only problem because it wasn't cooling, but the ceiling fan was nice. The location is amazing, not too far from the main road at Coco and not too close to hear the noise. I recommend to rent a car or bike. The Ocotal beach is amazing, super close (10 min walk) and much better than Coco beach. Robert is helpful, thoughtful and still give the privacy and freedom that you need! Wonderful experience!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Pura Vida Townhouse. Robert met us in town and brought us and the bikes we rented up to the town home. He also helped get us to and from town with groceries. All in all Robert is a great host, he made sure we were comfortable and responded promptly to our questions.
The townhome is nice. It's clean and the kithen has everything you need to make a meal. The view is absolutely beautiful. There are usually two friendly dogs to keep an eye out for you. I'm glad we chose this place!
Monique and her husband had fun in Playas del Coco . I stopped over at the Pura Vida Condos during Monique and her husband stay a few times, and I saw them riding bikes, and walking in downtown Coco, and every time I seen them they were smiling . It makes me feel good as a host when a guest mentions the two dogs as being friendly and watching out for them .
Pura Vida Condos , Coco Beach April 2015
Great little townhome on a quiet hillside between Playa Del Coco and Ocetal. Robert was friendly and professional, and even rented me a new bicycle for the month (delivered it to me too). Always available if I needed anything. Would stay here again!
Robert is a very busy man, but a gracious host!
This was our first experience staying at a AurBnB! Of course it was in the tropics at a good condominium! Robert received the call from our taxi driver and was in town waiting for us to arrive! We were taken to the Condominium and Robert gave us a tour showing us how everything worked! Ahh, we finally could relax and enjoy the local sports bar. We were able to see our local college football team the "Ducks " win!
We rented bikes from Robert and oh the adventures we had!
Thank you Robert for welcoming us into your country!
Truly, John and Tish

I stayed at Pura Vida for two weeks and was absolutely blown away with my stay. If you are coming to the Coco area, please do yourself a favor and stay at this property or one of Robert's other properties. The wifi worked, electricity and water were not a problem and I also had a full kitchen. Robert checked up on me numerous times throughout my stay and made me feel at home. This house is a perfect base camp if you want to check out the region of Guanacaste, 25 mins. from the airport, 5 mins. From town and 25 mins. from the gorgeous Papagayo peninsula. This is the best bang for your buck so skip the touristy hotel or resort and the dreary hostels and stay here!
Thank you Robert for the upbeat review . The Pura Vida Townhouse has came a long way from a new condo to a nice getaway spot . We lived there and truly enjoyed the mountain views and the easy walk to beautiful Ocotal Beach .
There is a pool on the first level that guests can use now and we look forward to finishing the pool on the second level this year . We keep improving this condo and the reviews are proving that it is money well spent .
1st, the host. Robert is the perfect host. He picked me up from the airport for 35$, gave me the tour of the town, showed me where the beaches are, the bars, the super markets, everything! He also invited me to have dinner at his place, cooked by his lovely wife, Maria. He was awesome and I will miss him dearly. The people who have him in their lives are very lucky.
2nd, the condo. Very roomy. On 2 stories so it gives the illusion of being bigger. Kitchen has plates and utensils and glasses and a gas oven. The futon opens to make a bed enough for 1 person or 2 kids. The bedroom is upstairs and basic but very comfortable and with a closet to put your clothes in. 2 bathrooms, no bath but 2 roomy showers. Cable, though I didn t watch tv for the 2 weeks I stayed there. The view is great, like in the picture. Few neighbours, very quiet. Washing machine and you can hang your clothes to dry (and they will in a couple of hours, Costa Rica is hot!). pool doesn't work yet but Ocotal Beach is a 10 minutes walk and Playa del Coco is a 30 minutes walk. Small convenience store for groceries is a 10 minutes walk. Supermarket, 30 minutes walk. Market for fruits, 20 minutes walk. Only problem I had was LOTS of ants on the 1st floor but it only got bad in the last 5 days so I didn't bother buying a product to get rid of them but if you see them, don't hesitate, it will make your stay more comfortable. Otherwise, great place for a good price.
We truly enjoyed having Martin stay in our Pura Vida Loft Condo . When we lived there we enjoyed the nature and the views just like Martin did .
The pool is still unfinished as of May 2014 .
We walked to Ocotal Beach daily which is one my favorite beaches in the world and enjoyed the magnificent wildlife there both in and out of the wáter .
Thank you Martin for the positive review for Pura Vida unit #9 .

About the Host, Robert
I live in Costa Rica and like to visit other hosts in different countries . I meet with my family who take cruise ships to large ports . When my family arrives at any port I will be contacting other Airbnb hosts to enjoy your area a day or two ..
I love watching wildlife , everything from birds to seals , to whales and otters .
I travel the world to see the earth's
beautiful scenery and uninhabited areas . My favorite place in Costa Rica is Drakes Bay . Sir Francis Drake said Florida is the fountain of youth but Drake's Bay is the pearl of the world .
I enjoy hosting guests and introducing them to the fun things to do here in Costa Rica .
