About Anita Dobson

Owners live in Calgary, AB, Canada

Anita Dobson purchased this house in 2014

Why Anita Dobson chose Cantón Osa

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.

Superb

This is our third one month stay and we are still just as in love with this property as the first time. Every detail is taken care of which makes the stay over the top. I would recommend this property wholeheartedly and we are definitely returning.

Fantastic home in the mountains for a heavenly vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the house 2/27/18 - 3/07/18. The weather was beautiful. Cool breezes from the ocean every day and woke to the sounds of birds talking to each other every morning. We arrived late on our first day and Sonya purchased groceries for us for dinner and breakfast, so very grateful. It is a must to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up the mountain to the house which takes about 15 minutes. Exquisite home with everything you need. Peaceful and relaxing with all the amenities for a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful home with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Casa Estrellas! The house, patio and pool are just gorgeous. The appliances provided are all high end, the king sized beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms are enormous. There is great water pressure and lots of hot water, and the internet is great. There were four of us staying for the week and the villa is so spacious that we never felt crowded.

As mentioned in the listing, the property is secluded, which is great. Although it is properly indicated in all information about the home, it should be mentioned that the road leading from the highway to the property is not for the faint of heart. We are used to the roads in this area of Costa Rica, as well as in the Santa Teresa area (where the roads are notorious) so we were expecting a bumpy ride up to the house. However, this road is also extremely steep, with many curves and it takes a good 15 minutes to travel the 3.5 km up or down it (and then another 10 minutes to get to Ojochal). With our 4wd car loaded with luggage, four people and groceries, it was a quite a chore to get to the property on the first day with the "pedal to the metal"! Jan, the property manager, told us that If you turn off the AC in the car, you get about 30% more power, and that really helped. You will want to plan your excursions to avoid unnecessary trips up and down the road.

Nevertheless, we highly recommend this beautiful home and we hope to return in the near future!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our future guests. Unfortunately our main access road suffers from heavy rains in October and November and thus can get rough. Road maintenance does occur but on Costa Rican time and will not reduce the two steep inclines but does improve the speed of travel. Of note, there is another access road that does not have the initial steep incline but takes a bit longer. Our property managers will direct you should future guests be concerned by this. As Canadians we completely understand - we initially had the same reaction but after a few trips we were driving like Costa Ricans in no time. Most of the locals even drive motorcycles and 2 wheel drive cars on that road! We are just grateful that the house and views more than make up for it.

Paradise! Even more beautiful than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful home. Having rented other homes in this region we can easily say that this is at the top of the list. The home has every amenity you require for a relaxing and worry free stay. The view is incredible. The pool is beautiful and large for homes in the region. Jan and Sonya, the property managers, are quick to respond to any request and are wonderful hosts. We visited with our two young children (1.5 and 4 years old) and the set up of the home was ideal for us. We look forward to our next stay.

Best time I have ever had away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The casa is beautiful,with a view just this side of heaven.Up to date appliances that all work as expected,quality cookware,linens and property mangers.Anita the owner was very helpful, answering emails promptly with clear answers. The casa is very roomy, my 14 year old daughter was able to hide away when not in the pool,lol. This the start of the rainy season but rain holds off till late afternoon. There were many types of birds on the property, and I saw 2 parrots in the tree. No bugs even though I packed for them,you will need 4 wheel drive for the access road, I had a front wheel drive car and never got stuck but I am a crazy driver. Even though the home is way to large for my daughter and I, I will rent here again it is just that great of a place.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home with a wonderful view. A fantastic value in my opinion. The road up to the house is steep and bumpy but anywhere you go in Costa Rica will be like that if you want a good view. Just get a 4 wheel drive and you will be fine. The house is fully equipped and Costa Rica is beautiful. What a wonderful vacation. Thank you!
