A one bedroom cottage with kitchen/living room and bathroom and small deck. Breakfast is included in the morning. Surrounded by nature don't be surprised if the howler monkeys wake you up in the morning. Off street parking and within walking distance of the beach and national park.
I will only receive guests after 6 pm by direct request, so ask first if you plan on arriving at night.
The cottage was a cute and private place to spend the 3 nights we were in Manuel Antonio. It was rustic although clean and the bed was comfortable and was surrounded by lush plant life. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on our deck during the day and at night watching the fireflies, birds and listening to the monkeys. The breakfast was veer good and the view from the breakfast room was stunning. The common area was great for monkey watching. Anita was a very pleasant and wonderful host. This place is great value for the area.
Anita at Casa Buena Vista is an awesome host, she is accommodating and very knowledgeable. We loved the cottage so much we asked for two more days and moved to the air conditioned teak house. Difference experiences, the cottage has a kitchen and we enjoyed the cooking, but in the room we had an opportunity to eat out which we love and cool down which was great also. The food in Costa Rica is so yummy. The Manual Antonio park is close and we spent time on the beaches and in the park......all wonderful. We would recommend Anita's casa with one warning be prepare to travel light the stairs are very good exercise, Gale with a new hip replacement could manage the stairs but needed rests to do it. The place is secure and clean, the people are so friendly. Thank you Anita we had a wonderful visit we wanted to stay longer, but we will return!
Love and laughter

This property is an outstanding value overlooking beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park. Anita and Nuria are both wonderful and we met the nicest travelers there. It is super easy and cheap to take the public bus to Manuel Antonio from Anita's place. Casa Buena Vista is located in an area of very expensive properties and lots of great eating options. Anita goes out of her way to help answer questions and make any needed arrangements. We would definitely stay again. Be sure to get a guided tour in the park if you want to see the most animals.
Anita was a great host for my husband and myself. Her rooms were clean and large, and accommodated us perfectly. Her breakfast was great and she was friendly and knowledgeable. We will use her in the future. :)
The price of this B&B is very, very reasonable for Costa Rican purposes. However you should therefore not expect to arrive in a very clean or renovated property. The location is great and has beautiful views, and the private parking is awesome. We stayed in the private house which is spacious, but it has no windows and is therefore very moist, it also smells moist. Although the windows had mosquito nets for the windows we still had many insects in the house, including approx 2000 ants all over the place. Off course the house is in the middle of tropical rainforest but a few more measurements to avoid all those animals inhouse could be taken I think. The property hosts many bats, which is great against the mosquitos, but at the same time there is bat-shit everywhere which I didn't find very hygienic as you also walk in your bedroom with the same shoes. The host Anita is very friendly and the lady that cooks and cleans is great, too!
Casa Buena Vista was wonderful. We spent many hours on the lodge porch listening to the surrouding jungle sounds and looking at the bay. The breakfast was surreal - we loved the fresh fruit, eggs, and homemade jam. Anita was so helpful and was great to talk to. We would come back and stay for a week.
Anita is a wonderful host! Friendly, interesting, flexible. Lovely accommodations, delicious and wholesome breakfast, and great views!
So much to do in MA!! Location, Location, Location...,The location is ideal to experience MA y Quepos!! Noria and Señora Anita are great!!!
My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights at the cottage. It was a great private space. We loved the deck to sit and relax and listen to the sounds of the monkeys! Great location off the main road walking distance to beach and restaurants.
I was looking for a simple and quiet place to stay on Pacific side of Costa Rica for my vacation after two month long business trip away from home. Anita's place was a great surprise for me. This place is really close to everything you might need. Supermarket is 15 minute walk, restaurants is 10 minutes walk, great Manuel Antonio National Park is 15 minutes by bus. You can get to a nice side of the beach after a 10-15 minute hike. I loved this hike and took it everyday.
Area felt very safe and I had a great restful mixed up with some action time (thank you for canopy tour advise).
I loved Anita's breakfast. Fresh juice, fresh fruits every day, plus delicious French toasts or pancakes with home made syrup (mango was my favorite).
It's not just the place makes your vacation great it's people that you meet.
Thank you so much for home away from home, Anita!
I am definitely coming back next time I'm in Costa Rica.
