Pura Vida Studio

Request a Reservation

This is the newest addition to the “Casa Banda” group. With its location on top of the hill above Playa Pelada, it offers both ocean view and sunset views most of the year.

Ideally suited for 1 or 2, this studio has a king size bed, sofas inside and outside and dining by the bar top and on the patio. The kitchen is fully equipped for long term living with a gas stove – which will work when there is no power and nobody else can cook! The bathroom with a large shower has everything you need.

For your indoor enjoyment, there is a small but growing library and a music system with several CD’s. If you wish to stay in contact with the rest of the world, there is a telephone for local calls, and by Christmas 2009, WiFi, high speed internet connection will be available.

Outdoors, the six apartments of the complex share all the amenities: the custom built charcoal BBQ, the rancho with shaded seating, the kidney shaped pool which is the largest, privately owned pool in the area, the lounge chairs by the pool, and the very private and lush garden which is hidden from public view by tall walls and fencing. The laundry room with washer and dryer, free for your use, is also shared by the six units of “Casa Banda”.

With a lower age limit for guests of 14, changing to 18 years by the start of 2010, you can be sure that within the walls of “Casa Banda” you will have all the peace and quiet that nature allows you.

With another studio “Tabidi” right “next door” but separated by a thick wall, Tabidi and Pura Vida together are perfect for two couples who want to vacation together, but do not want to be on top of each other. Discount available when renting more than one unit.
