About Anita Dobson

Owners live in Calgary, AB, Canada

Anita Dobson purchased this house in 2014

Why Anita Dobson chose Costa Rica

From the moment we set foot in Costa Rica for the first time, we knew it was THE place for us. We chose the property because we loved the serenity and beauty of the southern pacific coast. The defining moment was standing on the ridge where our house is now located and feeling the ocean breeze while looking out at the panoramic view.

What makes this house unique

Our home was designed with all of the luxurious comforts of a high end home. It also feature the beauty of Costa Rican elements such as local hardwood ceilings and custom made cabinets and furniture throughout. The best part is that your closest neighbour is the jungle and yet you can find five star restaurants and beaches within a 20 minute drive.

Our honeymoon in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 2 weeks of our honeymoon in this beautiful villa and we were so sad when our holiday came to an end and we had to leave. Infinity pool is amazing and well cared for. The garden is great and a bunch of humming birds picking nectar was a nice view to have from veranda while having breakfast. The views of the ocean and Caño Island in the distance where we went scuba diving are unforgettable. The information pack in the house is really thorough and both the host and the management team were very responsive and kept us well in the loop of any arrangements.

We would highly recommend this place to couples or families and can guarantee you will have unforgettable time here :)

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your honeymoon! We are so happy to hear that Casa Estrellas was everything you had hoped for on such a special occasion. The gardens underwent some maintenance just prior to your arrival so we hope they are much more lush if you return in the future (perhaps an anniversary). Thank you for your gracious review.

Luxurious Mountain Home with Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this beautiful home. The house is very clean, well laid out, and with every amenity you can think of. It even has juicers!! It has 2 master bedrooms which was perfect for 2 families. Plenty of space to spread out in this 5 bedroom home. The outdoor living space was our favorite. The patio is huge and the infinity pool was a huge hit with all 6 of us! It's up a secluded mountain (but really not that bad, its only 10 minutes up the mountain). The views are gorgeous and it never gets old to sit and just look out towards the ocean! The kids loved the long list of available movies.

The owner, Anita, was always responded to emails in a timely manner before we arrived. While we were on site, the property managers were wonderful and helpful if we asked questions. Sonya was great at recommending different restaurants which all were wonderful!

The property is in a great location to see the southern Osa Peninsula. It's only 35-40 minutes or so to Sierpe where we had 2 different tours with Perla Del Sur (Corcavado and Cano Island). We were less than an hour away from the Boruca Village and some stunning views up on the ridge. We would recommend this property to our friends and relatives!

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to think of an accolade that hasn't already been used for the paradise that is "Casa Estrellas". How can you beat a day that starts with coffee on a magnificent deck watching toucans and scarlet macaws? Or an afternoon enjoying an awesome infinity pool while drinking lemonade made with freshly picked lemons from the tree next door? And top it all off with a slab of bbq'd ribs and big glass of Pinot Grigio as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean. Why leave...EVER??? This luxury residence has all the amenities of home, in many cases even better! Occasionally (and admittedly begrudgingly), we did manage to break away from paradise to venture out. MUST DO'S: visit Jeanette and Enso at Maman e Pappas, savour the Chilean sea bass at Citrus, let Michael at the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary captivate you with his sad/happy tales (Bubba is a star!), watch magnificent sunsets from the patio at Azul Restaurant, dance the night away with Benjamin and the Howlers at Roca Verde (Dominicalito), enjoy the BEST CHICKEN WINGS EVER at the Jolly Roger (Dominical - Hot Asian Wings HIGHLY recommended), zipline in Osa (or, for the less adventurous - enjoy a chocolate massage at Cristal Ballena Spa - heavenly) and tour Manuel Antonio National Park. But most of all, make the most out of the Villa. Keith and Karen and Sonya and Jan will answer any questions you may have and are delightful just to talk to. If decompression and relaxation are on the menu, you will have large helpings of both at Casa Estrellas. Warren, Anita and Livvie - from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU for your hospitality and for allowing us to share in your paradise - PURA VIDA at its best!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful piece of paradise! This is the first time our family has travelled alone with no other friends or relatives and it was exactly what we needed. Lots of space for everyone to have alone time but close enough to spend quality time together. The kids enjoyed the pool, the many movies provided, and loved their rooms. We enjoyed the amenities the house privided, especially cooking in the beautiful kitchen.

On the days we didn't feel like cooking there were so many great options near by.

There were so many things to do near the house, beaches, tours, etc. The "pool" days spent at the house were very relaxing as well.

We recommend this house to families as well as singles. There is a lot of room for everyone comfortably.

We will be renting this home again without a doubt.

A touch of Paradise

Casa A touch of Paradise

We stayed at Casa Estrellas for 20 days in November. Although it was the rainy season it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I really didn’t want to leave. The home is fully equipped and is designed for comfort. The kitchen was

so wonderful to cook in with all high-end appliances. We cooked almost every night and enjoyed all the wonderful fresh fruits, vegetables and fish of the area. You couldn’t help but love your time in the kitchen with the view of the pool and all the surrounding area. Absolutely amazing view. The home was worry free every room is set up for comfort.

All I can say is read all the reviews they are true!!! The area is wonderful and the reviews do have lots of information. The people in the area were so nice. There is so much to see and enjoy there. The beauty of Costa Rica is simply amazing. Its so peaceful. I fell in love with Costa Rica. The area the home is located in felt safe. I have to say Anita was so kind and

made every effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to stay

in her home. All of Anita’s associates for the house were wonderful to work with, Sonja, Jan, Christan and Matis and I say Thank you to all. I hope you take your next vacation in Costa Rica it is a truly amazing place to vacation.
