Buena Vista 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!
There's even a jungle trail which leads to the great surfing beach of Playa Guiones. The beautiful, tropically landscaped hillside behind Buena Vista contains hundreds of tropical fruit trees and plants, and is accessible by a network of 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!

My husband and I originally booked 2 days with Jay and ended up staying the entire week at his Villas. We went at the end of May- it is the beginning of the slow 'rainy' season and we were the only ones at the villas and not many people on the beaches. We had an awesome time. The villas are located on a hill and we were glad we had rented a car. Jay was so wonderful, helpful and just a lovely gentleman. If we go back to Nosara, we will definitely stay there again. Surfing was fabulous and the waves were great every single day! The villas were clean and very nice. We had a private balcony, beautiful views and well maintained property, hammocks and an observatory area on top of the villas. He has surf boards for rent and kayaks. Just an all around great experience.
Ashley and Daniel are amazing people and were a joy to host. Kind, considerate and alot of fun... not to mention natural surfers! They made the most of their vacation and the activities that Nosara has to offer, and their presence at Buena Vista made my week! I highly recommend them and hope to see them again in the near future... Jay
Great place on top of a hill, overlooking the ocean and countryside. Stunning. Have a Pilsen and enjoy the view.!
Friendly host Penny is around if you have any questions or requests.
The room was perfect. Bed, bathroom with shower and a small kitchen area.
If you're going to Nosara, stay here!
I stayed at Jay's (Buena Vista Villas) for a week and had a great time. I came to the area to surf. Jay and Penny were great about telling me about breaks, places to eat and things to do in between sessions. Jay also has a very good selection of boards for rent on site if you're without. The room was clean and well maintained. There's a roof deck with great views and a hammock! Having a rental car is very good idea. It's a short drive to Playa Guiones and if you want to head north to Ostional or Marbella it's an easy drive. I would definitely recommend staying here.
I stayed at Jay's villas for 12 days and I can say that it was exactly what I was looking for. The place is relaxing, the views are unbelievable, and Jay and Penny are super nice and helpful.
If you are going for a surf trip, you will find playa Guiones no longer than 7 minutes by car.
Costa Rica has been an amazing experience and staying at Buena Vista villas was a right decision.
Enjoy your trip!
Buena Vista Villas was a nice place to stay. There were a few glitches (such as the shower), but the owner, Jay, solved all of them. Jay and his staff--especially Penny--are great hosts who are willing to help any way they can. I rented a car while I was there and I would highly recommend any traveler do the same. Nosara is just big enough (and the Villas are up a steep hill) that renting a car makes things a lot easier. The Villas weren't the lap of luxury, but you can't beat the price. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to get the Nosara experience.
