Property Details

Updated: Mar 13, 2015
Beautiful Villa with spectacular views of the entire southern coast.

'With stunning views of the incredible South Pacific shoreline and majestic mountains, this invitingly warm home, comfortably nestled into the mountainside, offers a tranquil and cozy living space that is beautifully integrated into its natural jungle setting. The perfectly maintained grounds and mixture of lovely antiques, textured fabrics and other comfortable furnishings, lend a soft, simple elegance to the Casa.

Everyone agrees, we have found the perfect spot, and now we would like to share it with you. We are the last house at the end of a country lane, in a small but prestigious community on the Escaleras mountain ridge, called Las Terrazas. We are 8 minutes off the main highway, (and we do recommend you rent a 4x4 vehicle for this area in general) up to the perfect elevation for cool breezes, but not high enough to be obscured by clouds. Our 5 acres are mostly jungle, so the houses butt up and into the forest. Monkeys, toucans and sloths are our constant companions in the trees by the pool. We look down the dramatic southern Pacific coast line, over crescent beaches and white water splashing on the rocks, as well as the majestic mountain backdrop, indeed all the way to the Osa Peninsula!

Casa Vista is the perfect blend of homey comfort and tropical living, with high vaulted ceilings and fans, it will surely feel like your home away from home in no time.

It's a beautiful, self contained studio with a queen size bed. It has a small full kitchen and a lovely bath, but the private front porch with it's spectacular view is the place you'll spend most of your time, or enjoy the pool at the big house with it's stunning view. Our pool is shared only by the owners & one other rental casa so it's an intimate crowd. We also enjoy gathering with guests at the pool or on our porch to hear tales of their adventures...the choice is yours!

We are happy to be as involved or uninvolved in your stay as you would like. We are on site and can help with setting up any number of tours, messages or dinner reservations. We are also available to visit on Skype, e-mail, or phone, to discuss any questions regarding your visit to Costa Rica. We look forward to hearing from you.

Keywords: Our dream home, can now be your dream vacation home! Enjoy your honeymoon, romantic getaway, or as a great family/friends getaway with the additional jungle villa. Secluded in nature for privacy, but close enough to beaches, surfing, waterfalls, horseback riding, zip-lining, nature reserves, fabulous restaurants and spas, snorkeling and scuba, etc...

Loved our two week stay at our bungalow. Waking up to the chatter of howler monkeys, watching toucans fly from tree to tree, smelling the ylang ylang trees in the afternoon and having a perfect view throughout the day makes for a grand vacation. The pool was ideal. Diane and Peter were wonderful hosts, helpful and available when needed but never intrusive.

We Absolutely Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to OsaVista on January 22nd , 2015 and stayed 6 nights. We absolutely loved Casa Vista; the view is amazing and you will wake up to that magnificent view with the sun shining in. Diane and Peter are marvellous hosts and were more than helpful with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions - we enjoyed everything they suggested! We loved the peace and quiet. The pool is wonderful and you will likely get sightings of toucans and even monkeys. We would come back for sure and that's something for me to state as we travel a lot and even if we like a place we aren't inclined to return simply because there is a big world out there and many more places to go to and see - but we'd love to return! I highly recommend Casa Vista, we stayed at a different place closer to Dominical for our second week and paid twice as much and didn't enjoy it nearly as much.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
Initially when arriving in Uvita we were staying in a hostel on the beach. We found this rental property because we wanted more privacy, better views and a nicer place to call home for a few days. It is on the owner's property but is very private with one of the best views of the ocean I have ever had (this is my third time in Costa Rica). We spent two full days just sitting on the porch eating passion fruit while watching the ocean, birds and clouds. The house had all the basics to cook, a filtered water cooler, a very comfortable bed with great linens, and a nice bathroom. While we were there the air conditioning did not work but the owner's were quick to address our concerns and hire a repair man. The owners were very friendly and welcoming sharing all their favorite things about the area with us. The house in up a large hill in a somewhat isolated area that only the more expensive SUV taxis will drive to and it will cost a lot if you are constantly traveling into town. We did walk the entire hill to the main road because we did not have a car, but it was a hike. There is a great restaurant with the best chicken wings just a mile or so down the hill so you do not need to go into town to eat. Overall an excellent place that we would visit again if we have the chance.

Beautiful and peaceful location

  • of 5
I had the pleasure of spending a few nights in Casa Vista and had a chance to truly unwind... The views of the Whale's Tail and the Ballena coast are exceptional from this unit, and the breezes were pleasant all day long... Saw many species of birds including chestnut mandibled toucans, fiery-billed aracaris, laughing Falcons and chachalacas... The use of the refreshing shared pool was a bonus as well!

Conveniently located only 5 minutes off the InterAmericana hwy, and just up the hill from the Jolly Roger, a great little bar/hot wing joint with awesome sunsets.
Diane and Peter are great hosts who are very laid back and generous with their beautiful property. Strongly recommended for a person or couple looking for a relaxing place to come home to after a day of exploring the regions countless beaches, etc.

New Years Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My Family which includes my in-laws, wife, and two kids ages 6 and 9 had a most memorable time here over new years and into the first week of 2014. The house was top notch. The house has everything you need to relax in a most peaceful environment with amazing views of the southern pacific. The pool is great! I think my kids spent more time in the pool than in the house. Most importantly if there is anything you need Natalie the owner lives on site for any help you may need. We will be making this our annual family destination.

Casa selva - Unforgettable view, perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5
This review regards one of the smaller houses on the property - "Casa Selva", but we have seen and can recommend them all. This is an excellent getaway for a couple or individual with an unforgettable view of the Pacific. Once you find your way from the highway (warning:steep hill climb requires dependable car and 4WD in inclement weather), if you bring your provisions, there is little reason to leave. The temperatures are wonderful - much more comfortable than the beach, and the mountain slope is teeming with wildlife. Our plan for three nights here extended in into 5. A year later we happily returned. The owner was very accommodating but not in your way. Casa Selva is very comfortable and there is a small kitchen so you can prepare meals, as well as a fun and friendly bar/restaurant up on the same mountain. For the environment, seclusion, and accommodation there this is a top choice in this region. We can't wait to go back.

From the Owner

This is a place to let your hair down, relax and enjoy nature. Because we are so close to the jungle, you will see more wildlife here than in other rentals. You can conveniently do as much or as little as you like while you're here. It's a very central location for the area.
