Don't pass on this gem!
Flo is a wonderful host, he could not do enough to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. A bit out of the way, but close enough to get around . His food, his tips on what to do, he tries to help you any way he can. He advised me of a fabulous tour guide, and gave me a contact with a reliable cab driver. Would have no hesitations of staying here again. I made a friend with Flo! :)

Hard to find, no one was there when I arrived. I went somewhere else. Was non refundable so I lost out.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful view! Exceptionally friendly and helpful host. Practical room, desk to work at, coffee maker. Good lighting. Very quite and peaceful. Can walk to Father Rooster. That’s about 1/2 mile and quicker going there down the hill than coming back up. Otherwise need to car to get around.

Wow! Pura Vista is amazing. Having only 6 rooms, we felt like we were the only ones there most days. The views are incredible. Also, Flo, the owner, fixes an AMAZING breakfast I highly suggest. If you’re lucky, Johnny, the bird will come greet you.

10/10 Exceptional

The view was absolutely beautiful. Our host was gracious and accommodating. The room was clean and peaceful. It was just right for our stay. The parking was the only thing difficult. We also had to be careful on the way to the property because the road there was not that safe/potholes and muddy.
