About this listing
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!

It was really a nice stay at the Buena Vista Villa. The Appartements are nice and clean with a small kitchen. The housekeepers Chester and Penny also very nice and sympathic. A car is recommendet, because due to the nice view to the coast it is a little bit far of on the hill. By foot you have to walk to Nosara main road 20 min in a dusty road but I liked It very much..
We had a good stay with Jay. Friendly and good spirited host, you will like him.
The place is clean and nice, no bells and whistles but everything you need.
lovely platform on the roof for a cup of morning coffee or a sunset beer.
This place has some amazing rooms with stunning views. We got a small (and cheaper) room that felt a little crammed in on the corner.
Overall I'd definitely recommend people to stay there.
