Grandma's unit is ideal for those that want the freedom to enjoy all that the Osa has to offer on a budget. The guest house is in our gated and walled garden in a residential part of town. The guest house is more than 40m from our main house to offer you support and security and still give you privacy. Tour operators are abundant, stores and restaurants are easily accessible by foot.Countless trails and beaches to explore on your own or with a guide. The garden is a birders delight. You can cook meals and prepare picnics in your own home away from home.. The beach is less than a five minute walk from the guest house.
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.
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.
After staying with friends at an all-inclusive Drake Bay property last summer I could not wait to go back. But this time I wanted to experience Costa Rican life from a local perspective so opted for the Mango Street Casita; I got just what I was looking for and then some!!
The Casita is located a short walk from Drake Bay town, but is extremely private. The owners and hosts Mario and Nichole live on the same property and have taken great care to maintain the natural jungle habitat while offering terrific amenities to guests. My favorite part of the Osa from my previous visit was being surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife, and I was delighted to have that same feeling on Mango Street. The Casita was extremely well appointed with everything I needed--from comfortable, cheerful bed/bath/living furnishings to the fully stocked kitchen.
Nichole and Mario were super helpful giving me tips about grocery shopping and restaurant options, arranging tours and sharing ideas of places to explore on my own. They were extremely gracious and unobtrusive at the same time--I truly felt like this was a vacation tailored to me!
I would not hesitate to recommend this property and am already planning a return trip with my children in tow!!
We have spet 3 weeks her with a 5 years old and it was perfect. The hosts are very kind and friendly, but without be disturbing.
Higly recommended place.
Mango Street Casita is a great find in Drake Bay-it's an excellent value, centrally located, and has comfortable accommodations. The casita is decorated with colorful ethnic art, it has all of the kitchen gear to cook your own meals, and it's quiet. Mario, Nichole and daughter Francesca were great hosts and offered us a wealth of information about tour options, guides, and restaurants. The birding right outside our patio was fantastic. Mango Street Casita is perfect for nature lovers and those who want a comfortable home base to explore the Osa Peninsula.
Our stay at Mango St. Casita was just what we hoped for. It’s a sweet little house, next door to owners’ house, but out of sight—sufficiently private. We had our own little patio that backed up onto a patch of jungle, where we saw birds, butterflies and cute little lizards – but not the sloths or monkeys other guests sometime see! Owners Nichole and/or Mario would stop by every day to see if we needed help organizing anything, or finding food—I had some of the best fresh fish I’ve ever had, when Mario found us some red snapper that had just been caught that day! They helped arrange trips to Corcovado, snorkeling, the night hike (fabulous!), and a private bird-watching walk (Carlos was great!). We loved having our own little place, and felt very taken care of as well. The house is a 5 minute walk from the boat landing, or to the collection of little restaurants and tiny tiendas in town. You can also walk from town down the coast, in the jungle with ocean views and sweet little beaches, for as far as you want. We had a great time, and would happily come stay here again!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Casita. The beautiful setting, very comfortable and nicely equipped interior, and helpful hosts make this a fantastic choice for staying in Drake Bay. We highly recommend the Casita for a couple or small family.
