Natalya's place is secluded and private and that is exactly how we liked it. It has lots of living space and was well equipped with a nice American sized kitchen. The grounds have beautiful gardens and the pools is so nice. The house is enormous and has plenty of living and sitting space. We are so glad we stayed here and had the opportunity to experience the real Costa Rica. I would not hesitate to stay here again if we had the chance.

The house is amazing, beautiful and spacious. The only thing better than the house were the unbelievable flowers and flowering bushes. If you have a passion for flowers you will absolutely LOVE this place. This was the best place we ever stayed at. The only negative was the 1/2 hour trip to the beach on a very winding road. However, that was made up for by the fact that the house was at a higher elevation and the weather was not as hot as at the beach. We had 75-80 degrees every day, perfect for outdoor dining, swimming, etc.

Our experience staying at this beautiful home was phenomenal from beginning to end. This was the far most cleanest Air BnB we've ever stayed at and the host Greg was excellent. He made sure all our needs were met and had great activity recommendations. He also picked us fresh fruit from homes beautiful 15 acre backyard which was perfectly ripe. This was a very nice gesture and nice surprise since we showed up hungry. This home is handicap accessible and has all the possible amenities one should need. We will definitely be staying here again when visiting Costa Rica next year.

The view, the hosts, the house and accommodations along with all the amenities are beyond perfection. I highly recommend this place for a quiet (URL HIDDEN) is very remote but within driving distance of dominical. The owner and her care takers are wonderful! It's amazing.

Magical, luxurious, eco-paradise. My husband and I stayed at Bella Vista several times. We stayed both in the downstairs apartment back when the hosts lived upstairs, and in the main villa / master's quarters now that they have moved back to Canada. It's the kind of house that you see on the cover of design magazines or expect to be owned by a movie star - over 6,000 square feet of space (I asked), high ceilings, huge windows everywhere you look, granite counter tops, high end custom made furniture, large & crystal clear pool and a gorgeous garden with exotic flowers. It's the best of both worlds - luxurious villa with high-end touches throughout (and all the conveniences of civilization like having a chef's kitchen with a dishwasher!) surrounded by incredible jungle (you can go jungle hiking right on the property!) Our last visit was with 3 friends who have never been to Costa Rica before - they all loved it as much as we did! We welcomed each day with an early morning cup of coffee in the upstairs gazebo, looking out over the ocean and watching the hummingbirds fly by... we finished our days with a gin & tonic at the outdoor veranda - watching the sun disappear into the ocean. In between there was surfing, hiking, swimming in rivers & waterfalls, horseback riding, zip-lining, taking photos of monkeys - all this is easily accessible from the property. The house is great for a group of friends or a family traveling together. There is a ton of space for both privacy or to hang out as a group. One of our friends loves cooking so we would go to the local farmer's market, get fresh organic produce and make family style dinners in the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen had everything we possibly needed; it was very well stocked with both kitchenware and cooking supplies. This ability to cook our own gourmet meals made the experience even more special. At the market we chatted and joked around (in our broken Spanglish) with the farmers and fishermen. It was so fun and made us feel like locals! Another aspect that makes this place so special is the staff - Jane & Greg (property caretakers) are nice and helpful if you need them, but very courteous (and the space is large enough) so that if you aren't looking for them you will not see them. The fact that they speak English made our lives easier a few times where they were able to give us detailed directions to the hidden beaches that we would have not found on our own! The gardener Hugo, is sweet and very knowledgeable on all the jungle plants - if you ask, he will take you on a guided walk in the jungle around the property pointing out all the plants and wildlife. I can't recommend experiencing this piece of paradise highly enough. Pura Vida.

Such a beautiful place with beautiful views! Unfortunately we didn't have the pleasure to meet Natalya but we did meet Roxana, her property caretaker, very sweet and welcoming. The suite we stayed in was nicely set up, it's own kitchen, breakfast area, large restroom and closet, with the bed set in the center of it all; the A/C didn't work but it ended up working out as a result, we slept with the windows open which it was surprisingly cool and at one point chilly at night, but we did feel we experienced nature to the fullest, which is what we wanted.

Villa Buena Vista is a beautiful family estate with spectacular views. It is quiet, very private, and very secure. On arrival, our apartment had fresh cut flowers, fresh fruit and coffee, a very comfortable bed, and a fully stocked kitchen, with everything you would ever need. I enjoyed arising early for the excellent bird watching in the floral gardens that surround the property. The very best part of our stay was our hostess, Roxanna, and the property caretaker Hugo. They welcomed us like family, and were attentive to our every need. We laughed a lot over morning coffee and "spanglish". A warm, inviting experience. Hugo's sendero is a beautiful and informative walk through the rainforest environment. A lovely stay. Recommend!

Natalya User ProfileNatalya is a superhost.

We are Natalya and Victor. Two retired Canadians who built their dream home in Costa Rica. We have been living in Costa Rica for the past 7 years, loving and appreciating every day spent in this amazing place. It is a gorgeous country with friendly people, moderate climate and great opportunities for both relaxation and adventure. We have four grown children living in Canada, US and Argentina and we built a house where everyone can come together and enjoy themselves. When the kids are too busy to visit we are happy to share this beautiful place with you .

Here in Costa Rica we have 3 cats and 2 dogs. They live in the house but do not enter bedrooms. However, if you have a strong cat allergy this is something to consider.

Our dogs are very big but very friendly. They will bark and protect the house, but are not in any-way aggressive to our house-guests. They would like nothing more than another human friend to play with and to tag-along with on the jungle hike behind our villa.
