About Us

Our Story

Osa Property Management logo

Beginning in the mid-2000's, Nick Halverson, along with some inexperienced developers from the USA, decided to purchase and develop land in the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica. During the first few years, the team made many missteps, hired unqualified tradesmen, and trusted the wrong people.

Those early lessons drove Nick to ensure no one else would have to face the same frustrations and make the same mistakes he did.

For the past ten years, Nick and Hanz Cruz have worked together on all aspects of development, property management, and customer relations. They have met with prospective developers/real estate investors, homeowners, and visitors to Costa Rica. These efforts provided a rich base of cultural, legal, and political knowledge that underlies Osa Property Management's business model.

Osa Property Management offers clients based in Ojochal, Uvita, Dominical, Tres Rios, Coronado, San Buenaventura, Chontales, Palmar Norte and everywhere in between, all the services needed for home owners and their visitors.

In addition, we offer Costa Rica Development Services for those bold enough to take on developing land in Costa Rica. We have done it - from the ground up, and can share with you the most efficient and effective way to get your project up and going.

Our Approach

We understand that it can be difficult to not only get a house built in Costa Rica (though we can make it easy!), but it can be worrisome when you are back home - outside of Costa Rica -  thinking about what is happening to your vacation home.

We have almost a decade of property management in Costa Rica's Southern Pacific region, and offer a wide range of services in this area, including:

Property Management (Peace of Mind)

We ensure your home and property are well maintained, clean and everything in working order with Property Management options.

Vacation Home Rentals

We offer some amazing, beautiful and convenient home property and villa rentals in the Bahia Ballena region of Costa Rica.

Real Estate Services

Did you find a piece of property during your time in Costa Rica but don't know the buying process? Are you being pressured by the sellers to not use a representative in the transaction. Let us help you and review the transaction BEFORE you buy anything.

Development & Consulting Services

Developing land in Costa Rica can be challenging - we've done it before. We'll help you cut through the red tape saving you time and money.

Retreats & Services

We host several retreats throughout the year and can also provide you a 'turn-key' retreat location. 

Trip Planning & Vacation Services

We have planned dozens of itineraries for guests of varying interests and various activity levels. Let us help you plan one for you.

We have planned and hosted private retreats, weddings and vacation groups.

Roca Verde (green rock) #restaurant and #bar in #dominical is one of the oldest establishments in the area. Located south of Dominical and wedged between the Costanera Highway and essentially a private beach, it is a great place to relax and have a meal or a drink. #restaurantdesign #costarica #puravida #relax #funky #travel
