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! Hence our name, "Osa Vistas."
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, or our website www.osavistas.com, to discuss any questions regarding your visit to Costa Rica. We look forward to hearing from you.

Why Diane Connors chose Dominical
We did a long trip thru Costa Rica & fell in love with this are, so here we are! We really love and enjoy the hospitality biz so now we live and work at what we love to do. Peter spends hours in the gardens, he loves to plant things that grow unbelievably quickly! We're here to help with whatever our guests may need but we give you total privacy at your casita
What makes this Villa unique
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.

Casta Vista Escaleras Mountains
March 12th, 2018
My wife and I arrived @ Casta Vista at 5:00 p.m. Diane was there to give us a warm welcome. She took the time to answer every question that we had and show us to our Casita. The view of the ocean and the entire estate was breath taking beautiful. Peter and Diane suggested where to buy groceries in Uvita and the best beaches to visit. The temperature was very pleasant for being in this tropical climate. The swimming pool was a cool refreshing treat to cool down in after a long day of exploring. The highlight of our time in Dominical was the tour that Peter & Diane suggested with Marvin a local Tico. This was what we always wanted to do and finally we have the opportunity to do it. Visit a true Costa Rica Ranch & Farm, Milk a cow, have dinner with a real Costa Rican family, ride horses to the most well know unbelievable waterfall in this country. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we have already started planning a longer trip for next year. Thank You Peter and Diane.
great casita, stunning view, super private, loads to do!
We had a wonderful time at Dianne and Peter's place. The view is even more gorgeous than the photos show, because it is ever-changing. The casita is beautiful and very private. The pool is lovely as well. We really liked the location, with plenty of things to do both north and south. You really do need a 4 wheel drive, but it is only a ten minute drive off of the main road and once you have done it once it is a breeze. Enjoyed our chats with Dianne and Peter and their cat and dog. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Close to Heaven
Our stay was idyllic. The house was totally private and secluded in lush gardens, with a breath taking view. The casita was clean, well appointed and cozy. I could move in forever;-)
We did have trouble finding it as there is not a sign anywhere that we could see, and the directions were very general. Diane 'talked us in' so we did arrive in one piece.
Doesn't get better
Last year, my husband and I came to Costa Rica to explore different areas and accommodations, hoping to find a place for a future, longer, stay. Casa Osa Vista exceeded our hopes, and this year we returned for 10 days. Still not long enough! There is some presence of civilization – other homes on the mountainside – but from the moment you arrive at the end of the road that leads to this cozy cabin, tucked in among the palms and banana trees, you feel you've come to your own tropical hideaway. There is lots to do outdoors in the Dominical area. But we wanted mostly to lay low, and this was the place to do it. My idea of a perfect day: Wake before dawn, and listen to the monkeys and birds as the sun comes up behind the mountain across the valley and the view unfolds. (Warning - it's hard to tear yourself away!) Walk down the road, which is much like a trail through the rain forest, full of birds and beautiful flowering plants and shrubs. Head down the mountain for lunch, then come back to float in the beautifully landscaped pool, watching for the toucans that usually come to the trees. Cook dinner while gazing out the perfectly situated window to see the changing light over the hills and mountains. The cabin has everything you need, all with style and flair. There's shade all day, few bugs, and lots of windows in case you don't want to use the air conditioning at night. Diane and Peter are great hosts and can help with anything you need and advise you on nearby adventures and great restaurants. This one really is special.
Beautiful View, Beautiful Cabina, Beautiful Hosts
The property is stunning. We had the smaller of two cabinas with a spectacular and private view of jungle and 20 miles of the coast including the famous Whales Tale. We saw and heard monkeys, toucans and other critters of interest while on the property. Our cabina was a very modern studio with a raised ceiling, ceiling fan, comfortable queen size bed, kitchenette, and bathroom with a large shower. It felt like home. The cabina had air conditioning that we only used once to dehumidify. We live in air conditioning all year long and were quite surprised that it was not necessary. In fact we used the comforter to keep warm at night during what is essentially the Costa Rican summer. Another surprise was the absence of bugs which was largely due to the elevation of the property. During our entire two week stay in country, we received no mosquito bites with minimal use of repellent. The pool area and veranda are beautiful but we seldom used them because we spent our time at the beaches and eating at the excellent restaurants suggested by Diane and Peter. Both did an excellent job of being friendly and helpful while allowing us privacy.
We liked the area so much that we are in process of buying a property in the vicinity of Dominical. Diane and Peter introduced us to very knowledgeable members of the US Expatriate community so we were able to get expert advice. We both highly recommend using this property when you visit this area of Costa Rica.
Super séjour 😍
Superbe endroit pour se détendre! L'impression de dormir dans la jungle en toute sécurité dans une casa confortable et indépendante. La vue magnifique:le lever du soleil vu du lit! et les hôtes adorables 😀
When we are feeling vigorous, there is an amazing ocean view hill climb that can be walked, guaranteed to burn off a few pounds during your stay. There is also a Gym in Uvita and lots of Yoga and Pilates studios to choose from. There is a health and beauty spa where you turn off of the highway to come up to the house. The spa features some of the latest health treatments: mud packs, heated stones, massage and so on. We are also near Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary where you can see the animals close up. Most are being rehabbed for release into the wild although some are permanent residents due to the injuries they sustained. Very interesting & informative!
