Let me start with the positives: Sonny is very friendly and helpful in your trip planning. Couldn't really ask for a better host. Also the beach is beautiful and as others have mentioned you pretty much have it to yourself. The cabin had clean floors on arrival and refrigerator was nice.
The negatives: Perhaps this is actually my fault for not realizing the place would be so "rustic". There were so many bugs (wasps in day, mosquitos etc and beetles at night) in our room and I had multiple itchy bites the next morning. I have tent camped many times in my life and have had less bugs/critters in my tent than were in this cabin. There was also a huge tailless whip scorpion on our wall at night and numerous hermit crabs on the floor and 2 larger crabs in our room overnight and multiple small lizards. I didn't really sleep because I was thinking about how many of these things would be crawling on me if I did. Covers on the bed had stains. Again this may be my fault that I didn't realize there would be so many of these things in our room since it is kind of like beach camping. There are are also very few options for places to eat.
Well, Angela very much all true in your case we read of your 1 night stay. We do appreciate your input!
OC Cabin is very much ON the beach as described, like beach camping. Hermit crabs do own the beach at night & do find ways to crawl in, as do insect. Honestly wish there was recipe for hermit crabs, so we could feast every night:)!
For the insects. You can read our reviews to notice it does not occur every night. Though we're aware it can in 1 night & has!
Here yes, due to being in a Real Authentic location of Costa Rica next to the Jungle on a Tropical Coast is going to occur. Especially w/o spraying by land/air pesticides has done in the States & Costa Rica doesn't for health reason we're all aware of.
For the 'Stained Sheets' You mentioned. They were Clean & yes had stains from previous Guest & that couldn't wash out. For You to think they weren't clean can be understood! But they did have stains & really didn't want to throw them out since 1/2 year old & expensive. Think You may now understand:)! Till this day we're baffled what can stain like that. Yet your correct!
The sheets are GONE, never to be used/heard of again! "My fault for trying to save $$" :)
The Cost Rica insects? Well, You come up with a plan & will make You Millions of $'s? Don't forget about us:):)
Again Angela, Thank You for your input on your 1 night stay. Hope to see You again & a longer period for a better experience & assessments of our Real Pura Vida Experience:):) -Rita & Sonny, Vista Bela :Owners/Operators :)
The cabine is remote and beautifully located directly on the beach. If you need a place to recharge and do nothing, this is the right place. Its not luxury, its nature and its real.
Sonny and Rita are the friends everyone needs. Best people ever.
The neighbor has a pet crocodile and there is coconuts in the trees.
Rita & Sonny Both made us Feel vey at home Welcoming us to share their Paradise making it our dream come true
Most hospitable ,friendly and nice host's making great ideas for adventures , shopping . Atmosphere so peaceful ,relaxing ,so very much fun .
It's the very best way to experience the True Pura Vita experience with every need met much more than we could have asked for. Every day a good morning greeting and still very private , a new sunset to take your breath away and great place to take long walks on the beach and if you surf not very far away , snorkling , wild life the monkeys and so many different Birds , But full of natures surprises Like the turtles Hatching the amazing flowers , colours and so much more & Fishing too.
We will be returning looking forward to next year :)

Staying at Vista Bela was amazing. It was the beach cabin paradise that we imagined before going to Costa Rica. Sonny and Rita were extremely friendly and welcoming, helped us out with everything, gave us rides to the store and bus station, and made us feel right at home.
We had an amazing time, going to sleep with the sound of the waves, hearing monkeys passing by, eating fresh coconut off the trees around the house, lounging in the hammocks, grilling fish outside, and surfing Playa Negra.
The surfing was great, there is a nice sandy beach break 10 minutes walk from the house, which is perfect for beginners, and right next to that Playa Negra has a fantastic right, as well as some other reef breaks around the house.
We would definitely recommend this place for the beautiful setting, comfortable cabin, and friendly atmosphere, not to mention the warm water and great surfing!
What a little slice of paradise! We had an a wonderful first trip to Costa Rica, and a lot of that is due to Sonny and Rita's beautifully located cabin (seriously, right on the beach) and their hospitality. We loved waking up to the sound of the ocean, chopping open and eating a coconut (Sonny showed us how), and then walking ten minutes along the beach to our favorite place to swim. Sonny and Rita are so happy and fun and gave us lots of great recommendations of things to do in the area, most of which we took. We cooked inside and grilled outside the cabin, sometimes went out for dinner, hiked/walked into the town, and took naps in the hammocks outside. Definitely stay here! And wear that sunscreen if you know what's good for you : ).
