Casa TUCANA is near surfing/fishing village with a great beach culture. It is CLOSE TO THE BEACH (750 meters) but tucked back a little, providing you the experience of both the beach and the rainforest (Monkeys, Sloths…). It is only a 10-15 minute walk or 3 minute drive to the beach.
The home features 3 LARGE BEDROOMS/2 FULL BATHS, FULL KITCHEN & LAUNDRY…. SALT WATER POOL, PALAPA BED, POOL DECK, COVERED PATIO, BBQ & TEAK PING PONG TABLE!
You’ll also enjoy the TOP YOGA TERRACE with it’s own PALAPA and HAMMOCKs.
The house has WIFI INTERNET and Cable TV, fully equipped kitchen, Laundry room (W/D) AC in bedrooms, CEILING FANS and central airing tower that helps keep it cooler naturally.
US Manager (English, Espanol & Francais) lives nearby and offers ALL SERVICES (reduced rate tours, Surf lessons, massage, cook etc..)
EZ ACCESS to all the areas activities (Zip lines, waterfalls, horses, etc…)
This is a NON-SMOKING home.
Our MANAGER LIVES NEARBY and will be happy to assist you both before and during your stay.
We highly recommend renting a car for access to all the areas' touristy activities, but you can still have a wonderful and comfortable vacation without one. However, having your own mode of transportation will also give you the freedom to go into town for an evening at one of the areas' restaurants or to grab groceries at the local supermarket to enjoy a peaceful meal in the comfort of the home
Interaction with guests
We respect our guests privacy. We are nearby if they need us. We are selective and only rent to respectful groups. Our guests can also rent a local cell phone from us at a nominal fee so they can always be in touch. We can also be reached on our US # (rings in CR) and by email.
We love the local feel, the tranquility (unlike Jaco or Manuel Antonio's crowds- 15 - 20 miles resp.) and the proximity to all the fun!
The village has a grocery store and a few restaurants. It's definitely a BEACH VIBE, very relaxing, park anywhere, no crowds!
The house is on the LARGES, MOST PRIVATE LOT in a secure community with a mix of locals and gringos.
Rental car highly recommended-
Airport transportation available (Optional).
Most our guests rent a car at the airport. (About 80 miles, good roads). A few guests have elected to not rent a car. This is feasible and you can still have a wonderful and comfortable vacation without one, but we personally highly recommend renting a car for easy access to all the areas' touristy activities and to see as much as possible of the Pura Vida life. Local buses are not always timely. Having your own mode of transportation will also give you the freedom to go into town for an evening at one of the areas' restaurants or to grab groceries at the main supermarket.
We have made arrangements with a local car rental company that will get you great rates and service. We can help.
Other things to note
We hope you'll enjoy the non-chlorinated SALT POOL. The water is soft, you can open your eyes underwater and you don't even have to rinse off after!
Another big hit (pun intended!) is the beautiful Teak PING PONG Table that doubles up as a great outdoor dining table. Fun for all ages!
The lower PALM GARDENS are beautifully landscaped, and feature a forest of aged King Palms. Our guests love watching the MONKEYS that pass through it nearly everyday, the occasional resident SLOTH is also a regular guest!
No smoking indoors.
Please rinse off beach sand before using pool
Quiet hours are from 10pm to 5am.
We provide basic supplies at checkin i.e. 1 Liquid dish soap, 1 sponge, 1 full toilet paper roll per bathroom, 1 liquid hand soap etc. If you need additional supplies i.e.: more toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, fabric softener etc. please purchase these items at the local store or in jaco beach on your way to the home.
Pets only on a pre approval Basis. When approved we have a $50 extra cleaning fee and a &200 refundable security deposit to make sure no animal related damage is done to the home.
We have an electrical allotment with the rental of 70 KW per night. This is only to encourage our guests to be responsible to use things only as needed sur to the high electrical costs here in Costa Rica. The allotment is sufficient to cover basic functions of the home (laundry, lights, refrigerator, pool pump and occasional use of AC). As stated the home comes with 35 watts per night and wattage over that can be paid at checkout in cash @$.50 per watt over the allotment. We will take a reading with you at check in and another at checkout. Please feel free to use the AC as much as you like as we have them there to be used but keep in mind using them more then just occasionally to cool down before bed etc. will go over the included amount.
Thank you. Chloe

I am Chloe and my husband Daniel (and our 3 kids) live here in Costa Rica and manage 4 beautiful Vacation Villas owned and built by our parents George and Katrina Murdoch. George is originally from Lethbridge, Canada and Katrina is from Paris, France but both live now in beautiful Santa Barbara California where Dan and I are also from. The homes are just beautiful and really reflect George and Katrinas love for design and travel which is reflected in the design, decor & furnishings of these homes. We would love to you view our site (EMAIL HIDDEN) for more info and there you will be able to read much more and can see photos of all 4 homes simple by googling Pura Vida Casas.
We love sharing Costa Rica with our guests and are here to assist you in all phases of planning. We can arrange all sorts of exciting activities or services such as in home catering, daily cleaning, spa services and more!
Our style of hosting is Family oriented. We love our family, eating good healthy foods, dancing, surfing and serving our community wherever we are.
We strive to make everything go smooth and to provide beautiful surroundings both inside and out so you can enjoy your vacation all around.
Looking forward to talking with you.
