The dream of finding that private spot, nestled in the jungle among nature and wildlife, is fulfilled by a stay in Casa Selva at Osa Vistas. Sit on the porch overlooking the Pacific shoreline, whitewater playing on the rocks below. Watch the toucans and a myriad of bird life pass right by. White face and Howler monkey's, sloths and pizotes are frequently seen passing through the canopy overhead. The villa is removed from the hustle and bustle, not only of 'back home', but the feeling of being removed from the world is palpable. Numerous guests have commented on the 'therapeutic affect' of Casa Selva. You truly unwind here. You can enjoy solitude on your balcony or visit our porch/pool area to exchange adventure stories. Because there is only one other rental casa on our property it is always an intimate gathering! When we are not available, and the guests ask for a referral to something similar, we are hard-pressed to come up with the answer. There simply isn't one. From Casa Selva you can drive 15 minutes to either the world famous surf town of Dominical, or the thriving community of Uvita, complete with grocery stores, banks, ATMs, pharmacies, etc. Numerous sites and activities are all around: horseback waterfall tours, whale and dolphin tours, sport fishing, turtle vigilance, diving, surfing, ATV tours, animal sanctuary, the list goes on. Or, how about some quiet time on your porch with a good book? A stay at Casa Selva includes access to the pool, which overlooks the entire southern coastline all the way to the Osa Peninsula...hence our property name! Questions? We are available to chat via phone, Skype, by email or thru our website at www.osavistas.com Keywords: honeymoon, romantic getaway, jungle hideaway, additional jungle villas available if needed. 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...

The pool is excellent and the view from there is like a postcard, just breath taking. Diane and Peter are wonderful host and we would definitely stay there again! Thanks Diane & Peter for a wonderful stay! Mike & Kelly

                                                                  We loved our week in Costa Rica. Waking up to the sounds of howler monkeys and toucans. The owners were available and helpful pointing us in the right direction several times. The road up the mountain is exactly as advertised. You will need 4wd. Pro-tip take the private tour with their gardener Marvin. He is great and provides an authentic Tico adventure that you won’t forget.

From waking up with the monkeys to falling asleep to the sound of the waves, we did not want to leave. The casa is open air with a big porch that has views of the ocean and surrounding jungle. Everything we needed to feel comfortable was provided. As soon as we booked Diana contacted us and the lines of communication stayed open, she provided directions that were very detailed and made finding the location easy. Once we arrived we were provided a very helpful, hand drawn map of the area that we were able to take with us on our daily excursions. Conveniently located between Dominical and Uvita we had plenty of areas to explore and the map guided us to a few spots we would have missed otherwise. This is definitely a spot we will return to, not only for the wonderful views but for the hospitality we were shown also. Thank you Peter and Diane! We hope to see you again soon!

                                                                  We spent several nights at Casa Selva and can't wait to visit again! The accommodations are simple, comfortable & thoughtfully appointed. Diane and Peter are warm hosts and provide lots of information about the area. The privacy and simplicity of Casa Selva is wonderful. We spent hours just sitting on the veranda immersed in the endless wildlife activity--we saw toucans (2 kinds!) , howler monkeys, blue morpho butterflies, 2-toed sloth, parrots, and even a squirrel monkey--all without leaving the porch! Jolly Roger restaurant is nearby and deserves its legendary reputation for both wings and burgers. We also enjoyed a sunset dinner at Porque No? near Dominical. Casa Selva is a perfectly situated nest in the rain forest.

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 very close to Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary which is a great place to see the animals up close. Some are being rehabbed for release into the wild which others are permanent residents due to injuries.
