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.

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of seven and this home was a great fit for us. Everything about this home is first class from the spacious areas to the comfortable beds. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen is fantastic to work in and well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals for a large group. The pool is also wonderful! You will not want to leave!

Third time and still a charm!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this amazing gem of a house three times. It never disappoints. We have been there three different times of the year and each season is just as great as the next.

We tried new restaurants, The Bamboo Room and Porqueno...both fantastic! Also or tried and true favourites, Mamma e Papa and Jolly Rogers.

The beaches were great!

Make sure to stop in Quepos and bring home coffee from Cafe Milagro, yum! All our friends and family love when we bring it home.

The owners are quick to respond and the price we paid is very reasonable for the large, beautiful home we stayed in.

A Wonderful Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful property. The house is beautiful and very well equipped with everything that is needed for meal preparation, chairs for the beach, etc. Our favourite part of the house however is the pool and outside area. The pool is a great size and there are wonderful shaded outside areas with very comfortable seating. We spent every morning watching the birds and every evening watching the sunset and birds again. The views are outstanding and great to look at from the infinity pool. We were sad to leave and would be happy to return to this home anytime.

Pura Vida in Chontales

  • 5 of 5

Casa Estrellas is a truly beautiful & we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Chontales. Our stay was 10 weeks, so we really got to know the area..First, this is the best equipped VRBO we’ve ever stayed at. Appliances & cookware, all high quality. Plenty of pots, pans, dishes.The beds are comfortable, plenty of nice towels, great hot water (note of caution, hot water is scalding hot). The outside area is lovely. In CR, you spend most of your time outside. The decking around the pool is a great place to spend the days reading, playing games, taking a dip in the pool, etc. And what a beautiful pool! Unfortunately, we had some problems with the pool. Hopefully, it will be resolved soon. The property mgr responded quickly when we notified of a problem & worked on it several times, but never quite got it resolved. Nonetheless, we were generally able to use it when we wanted, & we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon dips. The landscape is beautiful-laying out on the chairs at night to watch the stars is outstanding. Every morning we watched the birds in nearby trees. Wonderful sightings of Tucans, Kiskadees, Vultures, Anis, & Amazon Parrots. Bugs-Not bad, really. I seem to attract mosquitos & am allergic, so I did use repellant on my legs in the evenings & for walks on the beach. I’m not saying I didn’t get bites, I definitely did. Taking precautions at dawn & dusk seemed to work. If you “need” to be connected, there is TV with Netflix & movies, etc., & the WIFI works well. A/C - you really don’t need it! This was a concern when we rented the house, but it turned out to be a needless worry. The breezes are constant & the ceiling fans work great for moving air. There were even a couple of nights when I thought we might need a light cover on the bed! The owners have put together a nice binder of information that is very helpful on your arrival. Negatives? Not many, really. Over the period of 10 weeks, we got a bit tired of the drive into & out of the property-ten minutes on a very rocky, bumpy road. Also, the frequent visits by the landscapers was a bit annoying. If I only had a week and lost a day to guys trimming, blowing & cleaning up, I would have been unhappy. Also, they spray poison on the plants so we were forced indoors with doors & windows closed to avoid the fumes. Overall, this is the best VRBO property we’ve ever stayed at. Thanks Anita & Warren for sharing your beautiful home, Thanks Sonya & Jan for your help! Pura Vida!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to provide a through review for future guests! We take pride in providing amenities and comforts that we would expect while on vacation and are pleased that this is the case. We have been notified that the issue with the pool is fully resolved but required a more extensive repair that would have required a few days without access to the pool - something we would never want to subject guest to if can be helped! One of the most beautiful features of Casa Estrells is the outdoor spaces and again we try to ensure that the vegetation, pathways and the view is well maintained for our guests. We are sorry the gardeners were disruptive however and for any future guests, please arrange with the property managers to ensure they come on a day of a planned excursion if you wish. Thank you for mentioning the airflow and the needless worry of no A/C - we get this concern from many potential or future guests but it is very hard to explain until you experience it. Thank you again for your stay and we hope to welcome you back in the future!

Where everyone needs to be

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a chance to visit paradise and view it at the same time, this is the place to be. The quality of this home is astounding, second only to the views from the lower and upper terraces. Whether cooking a gourmet meal with the fresh seafood from the nearby Pacific, or just sitting on a comfortable chair looking at that ocean, happiness is the sensation. If you travel in the rainy season and want to hear the rain pound down or stand in it, here near the top of the mountain, this is the place to be. Five stars does not cover it. High on the mountain top yet close to anything you want to do, once again, this is where you need to be. Anita, Jan, and Sonja - thank you so much for an incredible stay. See you next time. Sherry and Gary

Owner's Response: Dear Sherry and Gary, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review and we are so happy that you enjoyed Casa Estrellas in the rainy season. The powers of mother nature are just that much more awe inspiring in the jungles of Costa Rica, I agree. We are also so pleased that you found the home and amenities to your liking. You were very gracious guests and we would love to welcome you back one day soon!

The return to paradise

  • 5 of 5


This is our second time to this magnificent house, we loved our first experience with this house and we are coming back to enjoy again the second time. We felt like home at the first time we visit this house and the second time didn't change our perspective.

The sounds of the nature in the morning singing by many birds, the wonderful view in the afternoon with sun set in far away in the pacific ocean. It's really relaxing and we are enjoy our vacation times.

The owner Anita is very responding with the request that we have. The Management team is very helpful.

Looking forward for another vacation in Costa Rica again.
