Anita was very kind and helpful. The place is in a great location. It is within walking distance to manuel antonio and is a couple hundred yards from a beautiful beach. There were lots of monkeys around the room which made it a lot of fun.

Perfect size room with AC and only a 3 minute walk to the beach. Place was walking distance to restaurants and Manuel Antonio National Park. Anita was a great host, she was very helpful about how to get around and answered any other questions that we had.

Anita's place is amazing! We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and there's a bus stop directly in front of the building if you want to go a little further. Right by the beach and the national park- absolute paradise!

Anita was a very kind and gracious host. She has a wonderful home right next to a really great beach. Even though its in a more touristy part of town, there are plenty of locals at the beach, so you still get the local experience! Make sure to keep an eye on your bags while at the beach though... the little monkeys are eager to eat human food

La Buena Nota is a great place to stay! This was my second time staying here (I previously stayed in the smaller room in this apartment, 2 years ago). Anita is a great host, and very helpful. The apartment is perfect for a quick stay or a longer one, with VERY easy access to the beach (it's only a 3 minute walk from the apartment). I would definitely go back and stay again!

We arrived a little later than had hoped due to long lines at the airport. Anita was accommodating and we arrived to a fresh, clean apartment with everything we needed for the stay. It is a very good location close to Manual Antonio Park and also close to Quepos. Many very good restaurants are within walking distance as is an amazing each. Enjoy the Pacific sunset!

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. 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.
