Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 19, 2016
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 hand crafted furniture, 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, massages 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...

Osa Vista Acres and Casa Vista are spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

You'll absolutely love this very special part of Costa Rica's southeast Pacific Coast, the interesting towns from Quepos to Ojochal, the "string of pearls" beaches, and Diane's and Peter's beautiful place and spectacular hospitality.

I stayed at Casa Vista for 10 days in March 2015. The casita is perfect - completely well-appointed and has everything you need. The view is breathtaking -- all day any day, but especially at sunrise.

Diane and Peter are great and so into their community - they have wonderful spot-on suggestions and recommendations, really know the area thoroughly, and can help you plan your time there. It's also great just to hang around the beautiful pool with them and Derby, the darling Australian shepherd. Poolside, I had close-up experiences with a Toucan, a very busy 3-toed sloth (believe it or not!), and a family of howler monkeys making their way through the trees. Unbelievable.

There is so much to do and see in this area, and Highway 34 is a magnificent road in perfect condition. Calle Escaleras, off of which Osa Vista Acres/Casa Vista is located, is as challenging and Diane and Peter advise you --- do rent a 4WD SUV. It is in fact mandatory! You get used to the road -- it's only 3 kms from Hwy 34.

I can't say enough --- book your visit now and you'll be fighting me for rebookings!

A wonderful treat!

  • 5 of 5

As you've read in other reviews the views from the casita are spectacular and the casita itself is clean, spacious and comfortable. Diane and Peter are very gracious hosts and they have a lot of helpful information about nearby sights and restaurants ready for their guests. Strongly suggest you plan your first journey up the road for a daylight arrival - after that the road becomes a non-issue, albeit for a 4x4. Suggest, too, that you stop at one of the two markets in Dominical before heading up the road to stock up on provisions - once at Diane and Peter's you won't want to turn around and leave on errands. It is a wonderful property and we had an enjoyable three days - we'll definitely be back.

What a sweet gem!

  • 5 of 5

Loved being high up! Don't be scared of the dirt road or the steep grade...very doable in our small rental suv. 10 minutes to the main road. Lovely hosts who were friendly , gracious. Wonderful grounds and pool area. Saw a sloth! Rental unit was spotless, cute bathroom, comfy bed, didn't need the a/c, kitchen adequate for small meals. Mostly, come for the absolutely STUNNING view, the cool breeze , serenity and peaceful beauty. Definitely recommend!!!

Perfect Spot (stay here)

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, it was everything we wanted. It has beautiful views from a jungle setting in a nice, clean comfortable little house. Even though the home is near the owner's house we had absolute privacy. It was great to share the property with the owners. The couple is super nice and Diane had great local info that made our stay much better. She pointed us to some wonderful spots that we never would have found without her help. The little pool is an amazing bonus as well, it has ocean views and is a comfortable spot to relax. I really hope we have a chance to return some day.

PLEASE READ

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have done many multi week trips to all parts of Costa Rica and have stayed at dozens of locations over the years. I use VRBO for all my travels thru the Carib, BUT to date have not ever left a review. With that said,our stay at OSA VISTAS was above and beyond a 5 star rating. I could go on about the owners, cleanliness, or the facilities. But just don't take our word on OSA VISTAS,read what other reviewers say. Just look at the amount of EXCELLENT reviews for OSA VISTAS and that should confirm where to stay in theDominical/Uvita Area. Enjoy your stay at OSA VISTAS you will not be disappointed.

Goddess of Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

While the drive up the intimidating mountainside may be stressful during its first climb, the serenity that awaits is second to none. The private side-home, owned by Peter and Diane is a small piece of heaven. It's quaint interior is plenty comfortable for a weeks stay, but is not even the focal point of the property. The views, wildlife, sun-heated community pool, along with Diane and Peter make this a wonderful place to stay. We lovingly dubbed Diane the Goddess of Costa Rica. Her knowledge of the local culture, language, currency and cuisine further heightened our overall experience. Privacy is their first concern which allows you to completely enjoy your stay, but being made to feel like part of the family was the most enjoyable aspect of our experience. We highly recommend anyone to stay at this property if you're truly looking to relax off the beaten path. Make sure you print her provided directions and rent a 4-wheel drive car for the mountainside climb!

Amenities

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.
