The space

I have four rooms at La Buena Nota Building located in Manuel Antonio 600 meters before the national park (between hotels Karahe & Pisces) at beach level. We have a treetop view but not an ocean view although it is a short 100 yards on a path next door to the beach. Room 1 ($60) has AC and double bed and shares a bathroom with room 2. Room 2 ($60) has AC and double bed. Sorry we don’t accept children under 15 and no overnight guests that are not registered.

Guest access

There is a living room with cable TV and internet and a full kitchen for use of all our rooms. There is off street parking but not with security gates.
Sorry no arrivals after 6 pm In high season, (December through April) I have a minimum of two nights.

Interaction with guests

I don't live on site but will be there to let you in. I do need to know within an hour of the time you will be arriving and don't usually receive guests at night.

The neighborhood

We are 600 meters before the National Park. It is a short walk to the beach by a path next door. Everything is pretty much within walking distance.

Getting around

Everything is pretty much within walking distance but if you wish to to go out at night or go to downtown Quepos there is excellent bus service which stops right in front of the building. Taxis are plentiful and not very costly. We have off street but not security parking.

Other things to note

There is a full kitchen, living room and large deck. Cable TV and WIFI are also provided.

House Rules
Check in time is 2PM - 6PM

There is an out side faucet for rinsing off when coming back from the beach. The main access gate should be locked at all times. Sorry we don’t accept children under 15 and no overnight guests that are not registered.

Anita's place was great for a couple. We had the place to ourselves as there was no one staying in Room 2, which certainly made it feel bigger not having to share with anyone else. The beach is incredibly close - less than a 5 minute walk to the water's edge. The public bus stops right out front, so it is very easy to get to Quepos or Manuel Antonio. The shower was great - plenty of hot water (not a given in a lot of places in Costa Rica!), well-tiled, clean, and spacious.

Anita's place was great - we stayed for 2 nights and had the whole apartment to ourselves which was very lucky. Anita was easy to contact and let us drop our bags off early which was great. The apartment is less than 5 mins from the beach which we loved and the kitchen was fully equipped so we could cook. Only thing to note is the living area does not have curtains nor glass windows (just insect proof mesh) so we felt a little exposed at night to passers by and wildlife. I would recommend staying here regardless as we enjoyed our visit.

Close proximity to the beach (can walk along path and be there in 2 minutes) and easy to get to the national park either by cab or walk if you wish. The entire apartment is not AC, only the small bedroom and the mattress is a bit outdated as you can feel the wires as you lay down. But location is great! Wifi is great!

This place is right off the beach super quick walk and you are right there! Restaurants and Manuel Antonio park is also walkable. You can get picked up by the public bus just outside the house too. So overall the location is awesome!! The house can get very warm due to the tropical setting so the AC in the room is a big help to escape and cool down; just hard utilizing the whole space when it's warm out (but it's hard to come by AC anywhere in town I noticed). Anita was super helpful and attentive as well. She even saved the day when we accidentally locked ourselves out of our room. Great host!

Anita's place met our expectations. The description is accurate. It would be perfect for 2 couples as you'd be guaranteed the whole apartment which is like a home away from home on a fabulous beach! Anita was an amazing host dealing with my disfunctional checkin with grace and recommending a wonderful trip paddling in the mangroves. Thank you x

Anita is a great host! We enjoyed our stay, location is close to beach and Manuel Antonio Nacional Park. Place is clean and with good wifi. In the evening we enjoyed sitting on the balcony, watching stars and listening to sound of waves.

I discover Manuel Antonio 41 years ago after graduating the University of California in Berkeley. Don Melton and myself first did a research project in the National Park and adjoining beaches and decided to make Punta Quepos our home. Don was the local historian and gave educational talks for many groups including National Geografic. We were among the founders of the first Chamber of Tourism in Manue Antonio, founders of ASCONA (Quepos first conservation organization), and have continued to be active in civic and conservations groups to date. I am currently working with a group to establish an animal shelter here in our area. (URL HIDDEN) We worked for many years on the problem of drownings (see page 7). I ran my gift shop LA BUENA NOTA for many years and because of my extensive knowledge of Costa Rica, I can answer most questions about our area and some advice about other tourist destinations in Costa Rica.
