Mango Street Casita w A/C, Drake Bay Town,Osa,Costa Rica

Private and secure casita in the town of Aguijitas, Drake Bay. Now we offer A/C in the bedroom. Just 5 minutes to the beach, shops, cafes, and pubs. Great location to explore Corcovado National Park, Rio Sierpe-Terraba Wetlands, Cano Island. Endless hiking options. The Mango Street Casita is in a gated garden with fruit trees and tropical ornamental plants all around. This is a birders delight. Monkeys and sloth are see easily from the porch of the casita. This remote location can be expensive that is why this option would be best for those interested in being independent and economical by some of their own cooking. In your own house you can enjoy more of nature at your own pace. Our family's main house is on the same property and we will be your hosts thus to insure you find what you are looking for and get the experiences you want. Not to worry we are private folks and just want to be available if you need us. We have lived in the Drake Bay area for well over 20 years and have worked in tourism most of this time. The Casita is new. The virtual tour will show the rental best. We do have a 3 night min. stay. We are available to help with transfers and arrange excursions. There is a safe parking space for your rental car. The Casita sleeps a max of 3. WiFi is available. Kitchenette- dishes, refrigerator, coffee maker, stove/oven, washing sink and clothes line make the Casita complete. A security box is available.

Very Good

“Wonderful House and Hosts!”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2016

The Casita is a very spacious small house on the gated property of the hosts, Nichole and Mario. The home had many small extras that were very useful and came in handy for our family (fresh coffee, basic cooking spices, flashlight, umbrellas, beach "towels", room safe, etc.). The location was great for short walks to reach the beach, restaurants, grocery stores and tour operators. My favorite parts of the house were the bathroom which is open aired looking over the jungle in the backyard, and the front patio/yard area. The bathroom walls reach about 4 1/2 feet with the top portion open to the air for fresh air and the view. No better way to take a shower than looking out at the beautiful surroundings. The yard is completely walled and gated which made it easy for our daughter to play outside with the "free dog", Dolly. That was her term for any dogs that resided with hosts during our travels in CR. Prior to our trip, Nicole offered to book tours, arrange transportation, and answer any questions we had. We were very happy with the tours she booked for us to Cano Island and Corcovado Nature Preserve. This was very helpful and we really appreciated the knowledge she had on which tour operators were the best. Nichole was away during our stay, but her support prior to our arrival helped ease my mind. During our time in Drake Bay, Mario was very kind and supportive throughout our sta. He met us at the beach, carried luggage both to and from the beach, provided advice on where to eat, what to take on our day tours, and acted as a personal tour guide on a walk through the jungle to a river. He even lent our daughter children's DVDs from his daughter's collection. As happens to many travelers during extended trips, I fell ill shortly before our departure date from the Casita. Mario showed real concern, and even more importantly he provided aid in the form of fresh coconut water. Apparently, coconut water has electrolytes which I desperately needed as I wasn't able to keep anything down at the time. If I am ever lucky enough to return to beautiful Drake Bay, Nicole and Mario will be the first people I contact to book their Casita again.

Response from the owner Thank you for your glowing recommendation. We are thrilled that your Drake Bay experience was a positive one. We do look forward to hosting you again in the future. Kind regards, Mario and Nichole

Our host was really helpful and accommodating. The casita was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The casita was up quite a steep road, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with Mobility issues. There aren't many restaurants or stores in Drake Bay, but the locals are friendly. I loved the remoteness of Drake Bay, the beautiful beaches, the warm water, the diverse wildlife and the locals.

“Great house; great hosts”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

We spent 4 full days at the Mango Street Casita, had a wonderful experience, and could easily have stayed 4 more days. The house was clean, comfortable, spacious, and felt very safe and secluded even though it is right in the middle of Drake Bay and activities/stores/restaurants are within easy walking distance. Mario and Nichole are dedicated to all aspects of the Drake Bay community, and were very helpful in arranging tours and suggesting other activities such as beaches to visit or walks/hikes to take. They live next door to the casita, but still gave us the privacy we wanted while at the same time being very available to assist us. They even did some grocery shopping on our behalf before we arrived!

“Central location, great price, excellent hosts”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2012

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 colorfully ethnic art, it has all of the kitchen gear to cook your own meals, and it's quiet. Mario and Nichole were great hosts and offered us a wealth of information about tour options, guides, and restaurants. They patiently answered all of our questions before and during our trip and their 4-year old daughter Francesca is adorable! The birding right outside our patio was fantastic. For those nature lovers looking for a little luxury in the wilderness, Mango Street Casita is perfect.
