We have traveled quite a bit but this was one of our best vacations ever. The house was amazing and it was just like how it was described in the website. The kitchen had all the amenities that we needed. We all loved the infinity pool and of course that amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Seeing Whale's Tail from the house provoked our need to go see it in person. It took us a time or two to find it but when we did it was worth the time. We saw toucan's everyday flying around the area of the house and even a couple very up close by the pool. We did not see any howler monkeys but we did hear them. We had a varying range of ages and interests in our group of seven but we all found many things that we wanted to do and accomplished them. I would strongly suggest the waterfall tour, it was amazing but the water was freezing but definelty worth it. I am recovering from back surgery and did not want to risk the horse ride but they offered a pick up ride instead. That worked out great for all of us, it had padded benches in the bed so it was comfortable. This tour comes with breakfast and lunch, both of the meals were really good. For the price it was a real deal. Of course some of our group did the zip line through the rain forest and they all came back with many stories. Everyone enjoyed that but they did say if you are afraid of heights it may not be for you. We loved all the mom & pop restaurants along the road sides, we never had a bad meal. We did go into Dominical one evening and had tapas at Confusione Tapas Restaurant, it was wonderful. We all agreed when we return to this amazing area and property we need to plan a two week vacation, one week was not enough. Neil was great with arranging all the tours we wanted and helping us navigate the area. He even helped to arrange a wedding for us at the house. We have the most wonderful pictures from the wedding. The ceremony was held under the tiki hut and our bouquets were made by a local woman from flowers and greenery on the property. This definelty will not be a trip any one of us will ever forget. Thanks so much to Jerry, Theresa and Neil for a perfect vacation.

We stayed at Casa Pura Vida in Dominical and the property was just fantastic! It's nestled in the rainforest with perfect view of the Pacific Ocean out front! More than that, the manager, Neil, was amazing at making our stay most enjoyable. He had the best suggestions on where to go, where to eat, and even sent us to beaches and waterfalls that were totally private and exclusive. He also made it easy to find the property (a rare treat when traveling in a country with limited signage) and was even prepared with driving directions back to the airport. He did a great job in helping us pick the type of adventures we wanted to go on while we were there. We truly enjoyed our week-long stay (it wasn't long enough!) and saw more wildlife in the backyard than we did anywhere else. It was a truly magical experience that was managed expertly.

Neil, the property manager, was exceedingly helpful and friendly upon our arrival and offered many suggestions of local restaurants and places to visit while on our vacation. He was very thorough in providing a tour of the house as we arrived and made sure we would be able to contact him if with any problems or questions during our stay.
In addition, he was always very prompt in replying to my e-mails and questions during the preliminary rental process and made our home rental plans efficient and worry-free.
I would not hesitate to use Neil as our contact person for any future visits to the Dominical and Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Toucan Alley this past January for ten wonderful days; from the minute we arrived on a late Wednesday night Neil made us feel welcome and went out of his way to get us settled in after a long day of traveling from the cold Northeast. We were immediately captivated by the beautiful accommodations. The home is decorated and designed to put you immediately at ease….but the best was yet to come. We awoke the next morning to the sound of Howler monkeys and the jungle coming to life around us within our own private 16 acres! As we took our first glance out from our master bedroom suite, words cannot describe the surrounding beauty and the awe inspiring blue Pacific, from our 180 degree panoramic view. My wife and I have had the privilege of traveling to many beautiful places but truly cannot think of a place that had more to offer in sheer beauty and diversity of things to do. We are typically very active people and love to explore the different places that we visit….but for the first time we really never felt the need to leave our accommodations at Toucan Alley, as it had everything we could ask for in its relaxing awe inspiring location. We did take an excursion on horseback up to Nauyaca Falls which was amazing and visited two of the many national parks and beaches…but were most happy just to stay in our wonderful Villa looking out over our jungle paradise and relaxing in the infinite pool. Thanks again Neil for always being available when called upon but also respecting our privacy which is what we truly desired most. Costa Rica is a magical place which we look forward to returning to many times in the future.

"Our last trip to Costa Rica was made all the more enjoyable because of the service and attentiveness of our contact and Property Manager, Neil. He met us at the appointed time, showed us around the villa with very good instructions on where everything was and was a veritable travel guide of information on what can be done in the area. He was professional, available and very, very amiable. In short, he made our last trip to this wonderful country even better. Thanks, Neil, for all the help, time and information that you provided us. We look forward to our next visit and working with you again."

Alo,
What an incredible vacation Neil! The villa was more beautiful than the pictures could possibly show. We wanted to write and express our thanks for making the whole experience one to remember. You were so welcoming and your help with everything, from recommendations for the best chow to the most private tico (local) spots was priceless. Thank you for taking care of everything! We felt like kings for a week! Can't wait to return! Pura Vida Neil!

This property is just what the Doctor ordered for rest, rejuvenation and relaxation. It is located 500 feet on a hillside overlooking the Pacific ocean. The beach below is terrific for swimming and surfing. We visited seven different beaches all within a fifteen minute drive of the villa. Most are very secluded. The villa has everything a person would desire. The master bedroom is large with windows on two sides. The view of the ocean is something you never tire of when waking up in the morning. The master bathroom has a unique shower that has plenty of water pressure. The other bedroom also has a nice view and accompanying bathroom. Both rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans. We never used the air conditioning because of the wonderful breezes coming off the ocean. The kitchen is very well appointed and also has a nice view of the pool and ocean. Oodles of counter space including the large island. The fridge is large and the ice dispenser is a nice touch to keep your drinks cold. We used the barbecue quite often to grill the local fish. The living room area with flat screen T.V. is very comfortable and there are hundreds of movies to select. A nice way to end a relaxing day, watching a movie. The outdoor eating and lounge area beside the pool and overlooking the ocean is very enticing. You won't want to leave this area of the villa. Comfortable lounger and chairs are great to curl up on to read that new book. The infinity pool is crystal clear and perfect temperature. Being 45' long makes it perfect for swimming laps. It is a great way to start your day. The property itself is very secluded and private. It is on a hillside in the middle of a rain forest. The property is very secure and we felt safe our entire stay. The grounds are immaculate and great planning has been given to the design. On the lower plateau there are numerous fruit trees planted and I am sure they will provide bountiful amounts of fruit in the future. Overall, this is a gorgeous property that you will find totally relaxing with all the amenities anyone would want. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
