The space

A private home lodging located in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica with a spectacular post card ocean/ jungle view.
A short walk to the beach and the National Park. We are not a hotel so if you enjoy staying in a home this is the right place.

A full kitchen is available for your use but breakfast is service in the main house. A large deck overlooking the ocean and tropical rainforest is a wonderful way to see wildlife or just relax with a cold drink and good book.

Manuel Antonio and the National Park is internationally known for its breathtaking beauty and abundance of wildlife. Without even moving from our deck you can see monkeys (3 kinds), sloths, coatis, tucans and lots more in their natural environment. Our garden has many species of tropcial plants including heliconias, cinnamon, allspice,papaya, bananas, pineapples and orchids. We are a 10 min walk to the beach. Everything you need can be found within walking distance. A small supermarket, banks, gift shops and some of the best restaurants in the area are a short distance away. Looking directly at the National Park we have one of the best views in Manuel Antonio. Our very small friendly bi-lingual staff with many years of living in Costa Rica, can make any tour reservations for you. If you would like to go sailing, river rafting, parasailing, horseback riding, kayak through the mangrove, or swing through the canopy we can arrange it for you.
All our guests may use the deck and livingroom/kitchen area of the teak house. The view is spectacular and there is a hammock and lots of deck chairs to sit and watch the monkeys passing though the trees.

I will only receive guests after 6 pm by direct request, so ask first if you plan on arriving at night.

Anita is a lovely host and the accommodations are exactly as described. If you want to stay in a non-descript resort...this is not the place for you. If you want a unique experience....waking in the morning to the sounds of howler monkeys, birds, the scent of perfume trees and a lovely breakfast provided by Anita and her sweet housekeeper....this IS the place for you. We also had the use of a communal kitchen, library, teak house with hammock (which we had to ourselves) that allowed us to spread out and relax. This was the perfect place for us to kick off a week-long trip in Costa Rica...will never forget it. Thank you, Anita.

We had a problem finding the spot, but when we did, it was a great location and walking distance to great restaurants and the park.

Casa Buena Vista is a lovely place to stay and is more secluded. The view from the room was amazing- you can see the ocean and the park in the distance. We walked to the park, which took about 40 minutes on the main road. Anita was a great host and made us feel very welcome.

Anita's casa was such a treat and a wonderful way to spend our last few days in Costa Rica. Short walk up the hill to access bus to Manuel Antonio park and beach or bus Into Quepos. The scenery surrounding her home is so special. So much wildlife. Open air rooms as an extra bonus, loved listening to the sounds of the forrest day and night. Delicious falafel bar within walking distance. Anita and Nuria could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Hope to stay here again sometime. Pura Vida♡

If you are looking for a "Hostel type vibe" with your own private room (and possibly bathroom) - This is the place. If you are looking for a place near the beautiful beach and a walk a way from the cozy, friendly & hip town of Manuel Antonio - This is the place. Staying at Casa Buena Vista was like staying at a Home far away from Home. If you are staying in Manuel Antonio and want to feel invited, be social and be close to everything - This the place. Thank you so much, Anita! Hope to be back soon :)

We were able to have Interbus drop off and pick up from Casa Buena Vista. The room was nice and as described. It was really nice to eat breakfast in the mornings with everyone before heading out to start your day. Both Nuria and Anita were very kind. We were able to bounce ideas off Anita for where to go and what to do for the remainder of our stay in Costa Rica, and she gave her opinion of what we would get the most value for.

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.
