Room 2 is a twin to room 1 and if someone wants both rooms there is an a-joining door that can be unlocked. It was probably the best view of any of my rooms but does require a few stairs to get there. There is one double bed and ceiling fans.

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 and 6 rooms with private 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.
This room has a private bath and ceiling fans and one of the best views in Manuel Antonio. It has a double bed, sitting area and of course shower with hot water.

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 living room/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. 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. Sorry we do not accept children under 15.

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

Guest access

The property has a large common area in the teak house with a big deck, living room and kitchen. There is also a TV room with cable. Sorry no arrivals after 6 pm

Interaction with guests

I usually am here to receive my guests and answer any questions they might have. If for some reason I can't be here, my assistant will be here. We do need to know within an hour or so the time you will arrive. Because we are not a hotel we don't have someone here all day. I also don't accept people after 6 pm unless there is special circumstances.

Casa Buena Vista was a charming B&B in a great location of Manuel Antonio. Anita was there to greet us when arrived even though we were later than expected. We had a rental car so it was nice to be able to park it in a locked/gated garage. The casa felt secure as well. The layout is spread out, two rooms up high, a couple rooms down below in the same building as a common area and then a separate cottage. Breakfast is served in another building below where Anita stays. There are gardens all over and beautiful trees and wildlife. We chose our room, #2, because it offered a view of the ocean. It is set on a hillside and our room was literally high up in the trees. We heard and saw lots of birds, amazing sights and sounds. It was fairly private, there is an adjacent room but no one was renting it while we were there. The shower in our private bathroom was great and very roomy!! The wifi didn't reach our room, but we were able to use it in the common area and on the cozy open air porch down below us. We were offered breakfast each morning, which was nice, coffee and juice, eggs toast and fresh fruit. The casa is about an 8 minute walk to groceries and restaurants. Actually it's more like a hike, on an uphill paved road, very windy and steep! Loved the Falafel Bar on the corner! Walking down the hill leads to a few beaches. We chose to walk about 20 minutes down to Playa Bisaenz, which is kind of hard to find, but well worth the effort. We grabbed the bus to go to the national park, about 10 minutes away. The only negative during our stay was the noise from the street. Since the casa is on a hill, cars and motorbikes really seem to rev it going up and our room was pretty close to the road. Anita did mention it might be noisy when I first inquired before booking, but we had no idea how loudly it would echo into the room! I understand the noise is not as bad in the rooms and cottage below us, but you sacrifice the ocean view. Also, the howler monkeys, will wake you in the morning with their "howls", but it may be a disruptive experience you won't want to miss! Overall a good introduction to our Costa Rican adventure.

Great views, great location, and you are sure to see plenty of wildlife. Right down the street from a trail to the beach, and down the street from some great restaurants and a small market. Awesome, secluded spot. Anita is happy to give recommendations on activities and restaurants as well!

Neat location, close to the park, restaurants and grocery stores. Breakfast was good. The cleanliness of our room wasn't the best, for that reason alone I wouldn't stay again or recommend to others.

Anita is a great host, with excellent accomodations! its a walk to the National Park but close to all the restaurants. Huge plus! its a small walk down a path to beach which can be a little tough. all in all i would recommend - get the AC rooms theyre worth it :)

We loved this place. Our room has a great view!! Yes there are small animals in the room, but its in the middle of the jungle. If you Want to wake up at 10am, this is not the place for you. You Will wake up with the Sun and sound of monkeys. The breakfast is great!! :)

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.
