Description

A wonderful and beautiful vacation home nestled in the hills of Escalares - one of Costa Rica's most exclusive areas. This spacious two-bedroom home, with large amounts of outdoor space, is perfect for a romantic getaway or families with a couple of kids.

Casa Dakota has two bedrooms plus a Murphy bed (sleeps 6), 1.5 bathrooms and an amazing open floorplan. Guests can easily move from the kitchen, to the living room, to the covered patio and to the pool and pool deck.

The wrap-around infinity pool provides enough space for those who want to swim or splash around, as well as a shallow end for children or for those who just want a relaxing 'soak' in the pool.

Guests will hear the howler monkeys, toucans and scarlet macaws that all live in the nearby jungles. There is a high probability that you will also see some or all of those amazing species also.

Combined with the cool ocean and mountain breezes, the temperature at Casa Dakota is pretty close to perfect. For guests that prefer air conditioning, there are A/C units in each bedroom.

When booking your vacation villa with Osa Property Management, you’ll receive assistance (when needed) from our entire staff, and help with securing your rental car and planning your excursions, day trips, in-home massages or chefs.

A member of our team will meet your group at a predetermined spot near Dominical and escort you to Casa Dakota for check-in, allowing for a wonderful Costa Rica experience.

Guests may also choose to meet at our office in Uvita, which is just a couple of minutes away from restaurants, gas station, liquor store and the largest grocery store in the area.

Interaction

Guests will meet with an Osa Property Management representative at check-in and at check-out. Osa Property Management will also be available from 7 am - 9 pm via WhatsApp group chat.
