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's place is great! Our room had a gorgeous view. The rooms are very clean and it's great to talk with other guests while eating a complimentary breakfast in the morning. Anita was very helpful and I would definitely recommend Casa Buena Vista to my friends. Thanks again Anita!

  • This is hands down the best view in Manuel Antonio. Get a stunning ocean view from room #1, listen to monkeys and see butterflies, bats and various tropical birds from the large windows. This location is a steep walk downhill from the main road, but well worth the walk. Daily breakfast is delicious and Anita and staff are friendly and helpful.

  • This is the best value in Manuel Antonio. Beautiful, spotlessly clean and quiet with a jungle deck.

  • This was the first time that we used AirBNB during our holiday. The stay at Casa Buena Vista B&B was superb, but the AirBNB login, app and application really were annoying. I would recommend Casa Buena Vista to everyone, but will not use AirBNB anymore.

    Casa Buena Vista is nicely located in Manuel Antonio, at a side street of the main street from Quepos to Manuel Antonio. We were welcomed heartly by the personnel and shown our room. It wasn't most modern, but was large and had a big joint social area. The room and social area had a nice view on the bay. Sunset and sundawn are beautiful. The breakfast has been served lovely, although the English of the staff was not so well. With mix of Spanish and English we found our way.

    The park of Manual Antonio was for us one of the least of Costa Rica. Small, touristic and partly closed, while paying high entrance fee. The bays and beaches were beautiful though and a lot of good bars and restaurants around. Recommended: Edmilio's Cafe in the same street as Case Buena Vista.

    AirBNB: Tremendous amount of personal information necessary for subscribing. Unclear communication with regards to the booking, if it was successful. And receiving every text-message approximately 5-8 times with the same information. Even days after the visit to Manuel Antonio.

  • Anita is a great host and the location and room was excellent. We made a last minute decision to go to Manuel Antonio for the weekend and Anita was very accommodating despite us arriving after hours. The property is a short distance from the national park and even a shorter distance to the beach. The room was spacious, felt very private and had an amazing view of the ocean. Breakfast was simple but perfect. Overall great experience and I would recommend to couples heading to the area.

  • I stayed for two nights in Manuel Antonio and for this time I booked a room in Casa Buena Vista. It is very well located. The beach is very close and also the centre of Manuel Antonio. The breakfast was very good and also the rooms are big and clean. Anita is very helpful and nice. She gives very good recommendations for Manuel Antonio and the neighbourhood. If I will go again to Manuel Antonio, I would stay again in Casa Buena Vista, but than I'll take a room with A/C because it is very hot there!

  • Our stay at Casa Buena Vista was a fantastic intro to Manuel Antonio. She is an incredible host and her place is gorgeous. It was fun watching monkeys while lying in bed! And she gave us many tips including two passages to beaches we would never have found otherwise. As others have said, there are some stairs to be gone up and down but that was no problem for us. I also want to comment on the wonderful common room and deck. We really felt welcome here and would love to come back one of these years.

  • Siamo stati a casa buen a vista x 4 notti . Anita,la proprietaria, ci ha accolto mostrandoci la nostra camera(n2) che è esattamente come nelle foto: semplice ma spaziosa e con una grande vista sul mare!! La colazione e' sostanziosa e la signora che la prepara molto carina e gentile. La casa e' immersa nella giungla e a soli 10 minuti a piedi dalla bellissima spiaggia di Manuel Antonio, e la mattina non occorre puntare la sveglia.. Ci pensano le scimmie urlatrici e i tanti tipi di uccelli a darti un bellissimo buongiorno!!! Anita e' un'oste molto gentile e piena di consigli sul luogo.. Pensare che la mattina che dovevamo partire il taxi che avevamo chiamato non si è presentato e lei ci ha accompagnato con la sua macchina appena in tempo per prendere l'autobus !! Noi ci torneremmo molto volentieri !!!! Pura vida!!!

Casa Buena Vista Bed & Breakfast, BOUTIQUE LA BUENA NOTA
I discover Manuel Antonio 38 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. (website 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.
