The space

A private home lodging located in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica with a spectacular post card ocean/ jungle view.
We have 2 rooms with shared baths . 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.

The heliconia and bromeliad bedrooms are available in the teak house. Each room has a double bed. The bathroom in this house is shared and has a large shower with hot water.
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.

Anita was a welcoming, friendly, and caring host. I enjoyed having breakfast with her and other guests each morning and getting to know everyone. It felt like a home and small community away from home. The property is beautiful and the room comfortable. I loved the jungle noises through the screens by the end, although it took me a couple of nights to get used to. If you appreciate nature and are friendly, this is the perfect place for you. I would definitely stay at Casa Buena Vista again.

I can't say enough about this place, we are absolutely in love with it. The teak house is really comfortable and fun. The surroundings are just beautiful. Anita is an incredibly warm and welcoming host. Breakfast was good and Nuria makes perfect eggs. We had such a great time here we even stayed an extra night. If we make it back to Manuel Antonio in the future, we will definitely stay here!

Anita and her staff were lovely to be around! Her place was super relaxing and the deck was a great spot to hang out and see animals. While her place is centrally located to shops, two beaches, and a bus stop, note that if you don't have a car you are walking up and down hills to get everywhere - if this is a concern for you, I wouldn't recommend staying here without a car.

Awesome stay! We traveled from San Jose via Tracopa bus and it was easy to find Anita's place once we got off the bus. Everything was great from morning breakfast to the happy birthday not left on my bed by her housekeeper. Very genuine people and great place to stay while in Manuel Antonio. Saw lots of wildlife right from the porch, could walk right to the beach or the national park if you wanted and it was very quiet if you wanted some privacy. All in all great place. Thanks!

Nice place close to the Manuel Antonio Park. Anita is an experienced host. I specifically enjoyed the breakfasts. She has a lot of knowledge about the area.

This is a gorgeous place-close to nature, close to the beach, and close to some really good restaurants. Anita was happy to provide recommendations for things to do and call the companies to set it up. The breakfast in the morning is simple and delicious. It was less than a 10 minute walk down a steep hill to get to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen and you can walk to the national park along the beach. Wildlife is part of life here, with monkeys in the trees outside the window and iguanas on the roof. The only tough part about our stay here was that sometimes the howler monkeys and birds made it hard to sleep. Overall, we loved our stay here and I would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely place to stay! Enjoying the afternoon rainstorms on the big outdoor deck while reading and napping was a favorite.

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.
