About Nichole Dupont
The hosts are long time Drake Bay residents with almost 3 decades in the tourism industry. in the area. This Gringa/Tico couple can offer you a stress-free vacation by providing tips and support where you may need it. Often times visitors are unsure how to connect the transportation or how to book certain tours in advance. We have the experience and we can do this for you.
Why Nichole Dupont chose Bahía Drake
This vacation rental is ideal for nature lovers with the comforts of town. The location is secure and quiet. The rental borders a forests area that is a natural corridor for monkeys, sloths, scarlet macaws, and MORE. This is an economical option for otherwise expensive paradise. The resource of the hosts is also invaluable. The guest house was built for my mother- a writer and a painter. Just close enough to the main house for security but just far enough for privacy.

Very nice house in perfect location, AC in bedroom is a huge plus.
Mario was very helpful and friendly, and Nichole helped us arrange trips in advance.
A truly local and idealic setting.
This place is incredible. We stayed 5 nights in April. Right from our arrival at the beach, the host saw to it that we were well taken care of. The casita is set on the edge of the jungle. You will see wildlife and birds right from the patio hammock. The hosts provide everything to make you feel at home. I am picky about kitchens in vacation rentals. This one had more than adequate kitchen facilities and equipment. In fact, we ate in 3 of our 5 nights in Drake Bay (it helps if you can catch fish). One can walk to the beach and the store within 5 minutes - no car necessary. The best part of the stay were our hosts who saw that we had a great experience.
Spacious house in a beautiful setting.
Our hosts were very warm and welcoming, checking on our comfort daily.
Love this place!
This year we stayed at the Mango Casita and last year, Mango Carsona. We loved both properties, clean, comfortable and great location. Walking distance to beaches, tour operators, markets and restaurants. Abundant birds and wild life in and surrounding the property. The owners Mario and Nicole are absolutely the best, great customer service and very knowledgeable about the Osa area. both long term residents. We will be back, hopefully sooner, rather then later!
Beautiful spot in Drake
My brother and I were very impressed with Nichole and Mario's casita. Beautiful wood details throughout, tiled floors, lots of room to spread out. The outdoor bathroom (covered by a roof) was awesome. Felt like you were taking a shower in the jungle. Nichole and Mario were great hosts. The first day we were there, Mario took us on a an amazing hike down the coastline to go snorkeling. He cracked fresh coconuts for us and showed us monkeys and other wildlife along the way. Was one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you guys!
In the heart of the Drake Bay village, the Mango Street Casita, is like being secluded in your own jungle environment. Hosts Mario and Nichole have created a beautiful environment with the most beautiful plants and trees. In the morning, we enjoyed sitting in the patio and watch the birds, listen to the holler monkeys, and once we observed a sloth moving up a tree. The house has all the conveniences you need to make yourself at home. We shopped for our vegetables locally and cooked them in the casita. Electricity was installed not long ago in the village so there is not yet a lot of development. A perfect vacation. Our hosts couldn't be more helpful in arranging adventure tours and ensuring our safety. The house in on a private lot with private parking if you rent a car. It is less than ten minutes to the beach. English is spoken so no worry about communication, There is always, the charming daughter, who is bilingual, who always ready to assist.
Yes, there is even internet connection is the casita. Highly recommend.
