"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!"

"Stayed for a week with 5 friends. Couldn't ask for more beautiful views! The house is lovely - the photos do not do it justice - but we spent almost every waking moment outside. The area is definitely worth the drive from the airport, with tons to explore nearby, and the pool was perfect for afternoons hanging out at the house! The spacious property is great for a big group, giving everyone room to do their own thing if desired. Definitely recommend!!"

"Our stay at Mareas was easily the best family vacation we have ever taken. It was amazing to have this stunning property all to ourselves! It has complete privacy, tucked away into the jungle with a panoramic ocean view, but it's only minutes from the best surfing beach in the area. My mother and wife were completely in awe of the gardens, and we all loved the walking jungle path down to the river and waterfalls. The pool is enormous, and we swam in it every day! Tim made fantastic meals for us several times - much better than any of the local restaurants. His wife Pilar was very helpful, both before our arrival and after, making suggestions for local excursions, booking tours and even arranging shuttle service. She said they often do weddings here, and I can totally believe it. My parents are already talking about us all going back for their 50th anniversary. I highly recommend staying here!"

"We spent in this condo one of the most beautiful weekends we have ever had. The apartment is full equipment and has all the facilities you need. You really feel like you were at home.
If you are looking for relax definitely it is the best choice.
The owners are always in contact with you in case you need something and they were really nice by email and phone calls. For sure I will recommend this to anyone. Hope to come back soon."
