The Space

This is a General Introduction To Buena Vista Villas and Casa Buena Vista:
**** (Please see Airbnb's individual Villa and Casa listings for more info and reservations)

Buena Vista Villas and vacation rentals are located at the beaches of Nosara, Costa Rica on a secluded ridge overlooking Playas Guiones, Pelada and Ostional. Surrounded by pristine parklands, the serenity and beauty of this mountaintop retreat is inspirational... yet is only a few minutes from beaches, restaurants, shopping, airport and other conveniences. We were awarded Tripadvisor's Traveler's Choice Award for the best value in Nosara!

The beautiful, tropically landscaped hillsides behind Buena Vista contains hundreds of tropical fruit trees, plants, and exotic animals and can be accessed by a network of hiking trails.

Nosara offers many activities ... world class surfing and fishing, shelling, quad rentals, mountain biking, surf camps and lessons, world's longest canopy tour/zipline, kayak and boat tours of the rivers, horseback riding on the beaches, organized family and group adventure travel and missions, yoga, rest, and last but not least... relaxation! For surfers, Playa Guiones has one of the most consistent surf breaks in all of Costa Rica. Waves can be overhead on the outside break, yet still have perfect beginner's surf as it reforms near the beach, and inshore is usually calm enough for a nice swim.

Monkeys, parrots and other wildlife flourish! The sky is constantly changing as the the clouds drift through the mountains and across the Pacific. Sunrises and sunsets are amazing, and night takes on a whole new perspective, with the countless stars of the milky way overhead as thousands of big fire flies twinkle all around!

* Buena Vista offers quality rental surfboards, surfing lessons, bike rentals, surfboard storage and can arrange all your rental car, tour and travel needs.
* We can also provide area transportation, tours and surf trips with our 12 passenger, air conditioned turbo diesel microbus.
* Discounts,seasonal specials and group packages are available... just ask!

The Villas are located on the 1st floor, and the Casa (a 2 bedroom house with splash pool and large ocean view deck)is on the 2nd level. A 3rd level observation area offers spectacular 360 degree views of the beaches, mountains, jungles and wildlife! Southwest behind Buena Vista the jungle valley decends down to the surfing beaches of Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and the vast Pacific Ocean... to the northwest the sea misted turtle beaches of Ostional are clearly visible... looking north you'll see the beautiful Nosara Valley, and to the east lies an endless horizon of distant mountain ranges.

  • Jay is a sweet guy and the villas are a clean a safe plae to stay. You are a far walk away from the action however, so you'll want a retal car if you plan to stay for a while. It's a long uphill walk to the villas.

  • Jay is an awesome host and Buena Vista Villas is a great place to get away from it all. Jay helped us with our car rental, oragnizing activities around Nosara, surf intel and generally anything we needed. Highly recommended! This part of Costa Rica is great for exploring so make sure you rent a 4x4.

  • We arrived to Buena Vista Villas late at night when it was pouring rain. As soon as we got out of the car Jay, and the others staying there, immediately helped us with our luggage and got us towels to dry off. They were extremely welcoming and very pleasant. It already felt like home before we even got to our room. We stayed there for 5 nights and every day was amazing. We saw so many animals and beautiful plants and flowers everywhere. Jay was extremely helpful during our time as he set up tours for us and gave us advice on where the hot spots were in town. We had a blast! I would absolutely recommend Buena Vista Villas to anyone who is visiting Nosara!
