Amy Smith (review from Revyoos)
Met all expectations experiencing a beautiful, well decorated, well equipped with everything you would ask for in a living space
Much more than expected. Best Mexican restaurant right across the street, gorgeous beach a block away, spotless well kept everything worked and fabulous outdoor pool area with an exquisite hand crafted teak dinning set

Sergio (review from Airbnb)
La casa está mejor de lo que parece en las fotos. Han hecho una inversión en muebles robustos, cocina y baños modernos. Un lugar excelente al lado de la playa y del super mercado, con un espacio de barbacoa con piscina. Todo full equipado.
El único inconveniente es que para 6 personas, el agua caliente con energía solar no aguanta tan bien. Pero bueno, hace tanto calor que ni se nota.
La gente de Osa fue muy amable y siempre estuvo pendiente para ayudarnos.

Molly (review from Airbnb)
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Big Sky!
The house is across the street from a great Mexican restaurant, a 10 minute walk to the beach, and within a 10 min drive to many activities and other restaurants.
The house is clean, comfortable for our party of 4 and has AC throughout! I agree with another reviewer that the sofa isn’t super comfortable, but it worked for games and watching limited tv at night.
The house was fantastic, and if we return to Uvita, we would love to rent this house again.

Thank you, Molly, for your wonderful review of Casa Big Sky! We're thrilled to hear that you had a fantastic stay. The convenient location of the house near a Mexican restaurant, the beach, and various activities is definitely a plus. We're glad you found the house clean, comfortable, and equipped with AC. We appreciate your feedback regarding the sofa, and we'll take it into consideration for future improvements. Should you decide to return to Uvita, we would be more than happy to have you as our guest again. Keep us in mind as we offer repeat renter discounts. Pura vida! Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas.

Clean home and excellent customer service
Outstanding stay for the three of us was very nice. The house was clean, well equipped and was a great Uvita location with easy access to an number of places to eat and very close to the beach! OSA was helpful with little items we needed assistance with. Thank you Team OSA!

Fantastic location, properly appointed property with everything we needed
Loved the closeness to the beach as well as the pool to relax in during the heat of the day. Maxi Pali within 5 minute walk made getting ANY supplies a breeze!

Claudio (review from Airbnb)
We all had a wonderful time!

Great, Claudio! It was a pleasure to Host you. We look forward to seeing you again soon hopefully. Pura vida! Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas

Heather Strickland (review from Revyoos)
Tidy, comfy, and convenient
If you are looking to get away by yourself on the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica, these folks have done the heavy lifting for you! Casa Big Sky was easy to check in and check out, fully outfitted for home cooking, and close to several grocery stores and restaurants. But you’d never know convenience was so close while lounging by the private plunge pool in the back yard. We loved it. We also loved the full-service concierge provided by Osa Property Management! Want a private chef to cook dinner at your house? Done. Need a zip line tour next week? Done. Nick’s team didn’t just provide us a house, they made our whole vacation easy. Thank you so much!

Kevin Maskell (review from Revyoos)
Exceptional Concierge Service
Nick has put together a wonderful team in beautiful Costa Rica. This was our first trip to the country and our family had a wonderful time because of OPM. The staff are very available and they really leverage WhatsApp to stay in touch conveniently and unobtrusively. Check-in and Check-out were a breeze. The house, Casa Big Sky, was on a cul-de-sac with other new construction homes, some owner occupied and some rented out. A wonderful Mexican restaurant and bar is about 300 meters away but you wouldn't know it when you are hanging out on the back patio or lounging by your private pool! The house is wonderfully appointed and you can fill the fridge and cook for yourself, or hire an in-home chef service. Wifi at the house was always reliable. We loved the house and it's convenient location in Uvita. Grocery stores, restaurants, and the National Park are all very convenient. The Osa team really came through with easy reservations for snorkeling, zip lining, a gorgeous waterfall day trip, and my favorite, the pre-Columbian chocolate plantation experience! We really got the Pure Vida experience at Casa Big Sky and Osa Property Management. Thanks Nick!

Esta casa es hermosa y su ubicación es perfecta. Tiene la playa cerca y buenos restaurantes alrededor. Es perfecta para familias o grupos de amigos. La comunicación con Cristiann de Osa Property Management fue muy buena. :)

Brian (review from Airbnb)
Excellent home - we had a great stay in Uvita! Almost everything about this property was perfect. We loved the location - close to the beach, restaurants, groceries - but very quiet at night. Great layout - my wife and I at one end with our own bathroom, and the kids at the other end with 2 bedrooms and their own bathroom. Kitchen was perfect and well equipped. Pool was amazing (a bit bigger than it looks in the photos) and the yard was great. The only minus on this property was the furniture - the couch in the living room was very uncomfortable - we could barely get through a movie at night sitting on it, and the outdoor furniture was terrible - the cheapest plastic furniture you could find. We mainly ate out in restaurants, but the times we did eat at the house, there was nowhere comfortable to sit. Overall a great home and we will def. be back to stay again (hopefully with some upgraded furniture next time!) Osa property management was a pleasure to work with.

Hola Brian! Thank you for the nice review. New outdoor furniture is being ordered (the Owner is aware of the situation and we were hoping it would be ready in time). We are aware of the situation. I'll keep you posted when the carpenters are finished with it. We hope to see you in the near future. Keep in touch! Osa Property Management | Costa Rica Las Villas

Lynette (review from Airbnb)
Lovely spacious house in a good location.
High spec finish but small, cheap plastic table for outside dining. Pool was smaller than it looked on the photos , too cold and the pool filter/mechanics shed was noisy. Construction noise from next door from sunrise to sunset 6 days a week and construction noise across the road so it wasn't the relaxing and peaceful holiday we expected. Had to ask for a hairdryer that was listed and they said wasn't.

Jennifer (review from Airbnb)
The house is very modern, clean, and has everything you need to cook and relax by the pool. The location is good as well, you can walk to a beautiful beach with mild but fun waves. And it isn’t busy at all, there wasn’t anyone there but us when we arrived at 8:00am. You walk by a few places on the way, a small supermarket, a few restaurants, and a great ice cream place with the nicest older lady that runs it. A bit of Spanish will help a lot, but everyone we came across was patient with my bad Spanish. The beach does cost about $6 per adult (kids free) and they only take credit card. We didn’t know this the first time we went down. A Mexican restaurant (La Choza De Alejo) is pretty much next door and is delicious. Check in was easy, the property managers were kind. It is an easy couple minute drive to all the other restaurants in Uvita.

The only bad thing was that we had a few issues. Some were resolved quickly, which I appreciated. But there was a smell coming from the drains and many mosquitoes inside the house. We kept doors closed all day to try to prevent it, and killed many, but they were still multiplying, perhaps coming from backed up sewer drains? I let the property managers know and hopefully they will address this issue because otherwise it was great. Bring bug spray just in case!

Ron Ford
Perfect Stay
Great home. Walkable to a few good restaurants and the beach. Construction next door took away from the daytime relaxation. They were metal framing the entire stay but we found ways to work around it.

Rita (review from Airbnb)
I would highly recommend this property. It’s beautiful and literally has everything you need for your stay. I stayed here with my family (husband, 2 Young boys and niece). We are all loved it and my boys didn’t want to leave. I’m so happy I picked this place and look forward to returning one day. Thank you again.

Thank you Rita! Everyone here at Osa Property Management hope to see you again in the future. Pura vida!

Nice, everything you need plus! Simple walk to Playa Ballena National Parc.

Thank you, Rob M., for taking the time to share your experience at Casa Big Sky. We are delighted to hear that you found everything you needed during your stay. We couldn't agree more about the convenient location just a short stroll to Playa Ballena National Park. We hope to welcome you back to one of our Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas soon. Pura vida!

David (review from Airbnb)
We stayed here for Christmas 2021. This is a brand new custom home, really nicely designed and built, and very comfortable. We liked everything about it. The outdoor dining and relaxing space by the pool is awesome. Every room has ceiling fans and there is plenty of A/C. High ceilings and lots of natural light. A few hundred meters off of 34 so it’s convenient but it was very quiet. 4wd is not needed. You can walk about 10 minutes down the road to the beach. There is a small grocery store on the way and a few restaurants. It’s a quick drive to town where there is an excellent grocery, many restaurants, and plenty of other services. The host was extremely responsive and helped us check in very late after our arrival flight was delayed. Five stars all the way around.

Gabriela (review from Airbnb)
Great location! The house was well equipped and very comfortable.
The manager was prompt to respond to our inquiries.

Nadine M. (review from Vrbo)
Not what we expected
The house itself was ok. There was only place to eat for 3 people which was a problem for us as a family of 4. But it was quite well equipped. It was more than a 5 minute walk to the beach but it was convenient to many places in Uvita.
Our biggest problem was with the property management company. They were absolutely unresponsive to problems we had and when/if they did respond it was to let us know that nobody else had problems so it must have been just us. The master bath has some plumbing issues - standing water, immensely slow shower drain and as a result there was a massive mosquito infestation in the master bath. We killed a minimum of 30-40 mosquitos in the bathroom on a daily basis. We reached out to property management to let them know and never heard back. If I could offer advice, find a different management company to use that may be actually respond to issues.

Nadine, We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We would also like to to address your statement about the response time from Osa Property Management. When you contacted us about how your son was bitten by a spider on tour, we immediately sent you the location of the nearest medical center in relation to where you were. In addition, we asked if there was anything else we could do to help. We told you, "Call us if you need help on translation" [hospital] and you responded, "Great." Regarding the mosquito issue: You contacted us on Sunday, December 26, at 5:27 pm and we responded at 5:52 pm. That evening (the same day - within hours of being contacted by you) a Property Manager visited the property to ascertain the situation and to resolve it. After the property manager left, you never contacted us again for the remainder of your trip. The day before check-out, we sent you a message wishing you a "Hope you are enjoying your stay" and you never responded. We provided you with quick service, and we apologized for the situation you encountered.

Stefan K. (review from Vrbo)
Not what you could expect
Casa Big Sky is advertised as having ocean view, well, it doesn't have. It is advertised being a five minute walk from the beach, count for 10-15
It is located directly at the road, therefore noisy
All the rest is perfect, interior design, equipment of the kitchen, very clean and very friendly local staff
