Updates for 2024 include fresh exterior paint! Recent updates include new top level decking!

Open up the bright blue door to a week of rest and relaxation! Pura Vida literally means “Pure Life" but, much more than that, it evokes the spirit of the good life and symbolizes the feeling of simply being happy and enjoying each day. Live the Pura Vida by floating away the day in your private pool or taking in the breathtaking views from the comfort of the wrap-around porches!  Need a break from the beach?  Just a short walk away are the bustling Tim Buck II shops, Monterey Plaza, Whalehead Club, and the Seaside Farm Market!

Pura Vida’s wrap-around porches offer the perfect spot to take in the morning sunrise or watch the day fade away with Corolla's gorgeous sunsets!  A new, fully equipped kitchen, complete with built in wine cooler, provides the perfect environment to chef up a meal for the table of 12+ family members.  For a more serene environment, grab a book and settle in on the breezy screened in outdoor living area.  Just down the hall from the main living area, is a master bedroom with a private ocean side deck to enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

On the second level, steady slumbers will fill the hallways from the 4 bedrooms, each with their own en suites. In addition to the bedrooms, you can soak away in your 5 person hot tub or sway to the sounds of the ocean in Pura Vida’s relaxing hammock.

Settle in for an afternoon of fun and games on the ground level. A dual-use game table for pool and ping pong are sure to tap into everybody's competitive side! Take the competition outside with a friendly volleyball match or basketball game. Keep the beachy mess downstairs and store snacks in the kitchenette and wet bar!  Wash off the day in your outdoor shower before jumping in Pura Vida’s private pool for a post-bedtime dip. Regardless of your vacation preferences, Pura Vida is the perfect place to please the whole family!

"We’ve always bounced around to different rentals in search of “the one” until we stayed here. This house has everything you could need/want & is incredibly close to the beach! We enjoyed our stay so much that we are coming back next year!! Thank you for opening your home to our family, we can’t wait until next time!"

"Perfect for family activities. Large modern kitchen for theme based meals. Well kept swimming pool area with great game room. Abundance of deck space for relaxing. Third floor enclosed deck great for all day lounging."

Rebecca   ·  Stayed July 2023

"Pura Vida is hands down the best house we have stayed at in OBX. It was spacious, very clean, and everything was in working order. This may have been the first time we did not have to contact the management company about any issues. It was simply perfect and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you for allowing us to vacation in your amazing home."

Jamison   ·  Stayed June 2023

"We always appreciate a well-stocked kitchen, and this home fit that bill! It had everything we needed, and in good shape. The pool deck is amazing and the shaded areas let you hide from the sun when needed. The beds were comfortable and the entire family loved the home... a total win."

Nicole   ·  Stayed May 2023

"We loved the size and layout of the home. It was perfect for the size of our family. The large pool was also perfect. The kitchen was well stocked for all of our cooking needs. The added baby equipment and pool/beach toys helped us to not have to pack so much. The bikes were enjoyed by our young adults that were able to take them for a ride and go shopping at Timbuktu. All in all it was a great week at Pura Vida!"
