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.

Awesome spot minutes from bus station and Main Street of manual Antonio. Really good falafel place down the street, reasonable prices. Surrounded by tropical forest. We saw toucans and monkeys on the property (2 night stay). Other guests saw sloths snakes birds cats and more. Careful - suite #1 does not come with ac. We requested a change to ac suite as the nighttime low was 29c and humid, to hot for us to sleep with only a fan. We were moved to the ac suite below the teak house for a 10$ extra fee for the 2nd night. Breakfast was very good, fresh scrambled eggs by the maid, toast, cake, fruit, smoothie, coffee. Nice and clean.

Anita is a great hostess, very friendly and accommodating. On our first day she offered to take us to the park since she was going in the same direction. Her place is very scenic - you back right onto a beautiful tree filled property and can see the ocean. You are also guaranteed to see monkeys. On that note - the howler monkeys in this area can be quite loud, regardless of where you stay. The breakfast was adequate, eggs, toast, fruit and juice. The location is down a small hill - you can go up about 5 mins to restaurants and a grocery store, or the bus stop. You can also go down in the other direction towards the beaches - which are beautiful.

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 :)

Our stay at Anita's was great. It was very easy to find and had secure parking. The balcony at Anita's is pretty magical. We spent a few evenings hanging out watching the monkeys play in the trees - pretty neat! The only thing I would improve upon was the breakfast - if you don't eat eggs, you really don't get much to eat in the morning (there is a small fruit salad and toast available). We enjoyed chatting with Anita in the mornings to get tips on the area. Overall we enjoyed our stay!

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.

Great B&B with a beautiful view of the beach. The private rooms are perfect with extra chairs, coffee table, wifi, sink and mini fridge. Rooms are cleaned each day with fresh towels, bedding, tp, and removed trash. Breakfast is served each morning with fruits, eggs, toast with butter and jam, coffee, tea and pastries. Parking when available is extremely safe and convenient. Location is great as it is close to the beach and local shops and restaurants whether you want to drive or walk. Note that the area is very hilly so the walks will be steep. We had a great stay with Anita and her communication was very good. She is friendly and sweet with a lot of stories; an excellent host so do not hesitate to book or ask questions! Also note though that the windows are just mesh screening and the birds are really loud and annoying...they woke us up early and often but isn't so bad when you wake to a beautiful sunrise!

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.
