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

First off, the views from Casa Buena Vista were AMAZING!!! As a side note, if you get hot really easy, make sure you book a room with air conditioning!!! Manuel Antonio was really hot and humid for my friend and I and without A/C we could not last. We ended up going to another budget hotel and paying additional money so we could get A/C as all the other rooms were occupied. Not the owner's fault, just wished we would have looked into that better. Be prepared to do some walking if you're planning on going down to the beaches from the place. We ended up taking taxi's which were easy to come by. And if you're looking to do some laundry, plan ahead. My friend and I went to a local place to have 1 load of laundry done and it cost $25 US - outlandish! Overall, Manuel Antonio is a beautiful place just wished we planned to go during a little cooler weather :)
Our stay at Casa Buena Vista from Jan 30- Feb 9 2014 was great. Costa Rica is such a beautiful country and our location was excellent. Anita is so helpful- suggestions of what to do and see, places to go, very helpful with directions and arranging car rentals, etc. B&B was excellent- delicious breakfast every morning, room was kept very clean, beautiful view and of course the natural surroundings were stunning. So close to the beach- well worth the hike back up the little dirt path- the beach is perfect. We had a great stay. Would definitely recommend this place; has all your basic needs, with a great host at a great price for an almost beach front property close to so many restaurants, bars, hotels, etc. Thank you Anita and Nuria!
Good view, great breakfast, older, roomy, steps, nice lounge area, Great for the price. Great sunset restaurant w. 2/1 HH, just up the hill a short way. Anita is a great host.
A fantastic tropical experience in a truly authentic house with a rustic feel. Our room (number 2) was very comfortable and with an incredible view of Manuel Antonio beach. We loved spending time in the communal area and especially the balcony in the evening. The view is stunning,you will be immersed in the tropical forest, you will have your privacy and you will get to know Anita, a very kind person who will be able to give you very helpful tips on the area. We love our morning walk down to the beach and up again in the evening through a wild path. We hope to come back here again one day!thank you Anita for having us!
Don't look any further!! Casa Buena Vista is a beautiful place with spectacular views and very comfortable rooms and communal areas, not to mention the prices are really good if you compare them with some local affordable hotels. The monkeys playing on the nearby trees were incredible entertaining!! As per Anita you can tell she loves her home and I am not surprised she has been living there for about 40 years...that town is Paradise and her place so peaceful...too bad I stayed there only for 2 nights :-( !! Anita is very hospitable and goes the extra mile to please her guests!
Anita's place is in a great location- well worth all the stairs and hills. Please be aware you will need to be reasonable fit to stay here and enjoy all there is around.
Casa Buena Vista was a fantastic place to stay! It was an all-around great experience. Our room had a great view of the ocean, beach and forest. Very clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and filling with fresh fruit, eggs, toast, homemade jams and loaves.
Anita was very kind and accommodating and was fun to talk to. Met great people who were also staying at casa Buena vista and it was nice to have common areas to socialize and cook together. We saw monkeys and birds in the area and had a good hike with sloth & iguana sitings at nearby Manuel Antonio National park.
The beach is walking distance and has a long sandy stretch and gorgeous views.
When I return to Costa Rica one day I would love to stay at Casa Buena Vista again.
I had a wonderful stay at Casa Buena Vista! Anita was a delightful host. She was very flexible with check-in times which was much appreciated. My room was clean and had a wonderful view of Manuel Antonio National park. I really enjoyed the teak deck and having a common space to relax and meet other guests. The kitchen was also great! I really enjoyed the path down to the beach, although steep, it was nice to be able to walk to the beach rather than take a bus. I also really enjoyed Emilio's restaurant at the top of the hill (5min walk) with a beautiful view, great food and good service. Anita is very knowledgeable about the area and activities, which was helpful as well! Overall, a great stay!
Anita is a lovely host. She was so kind and warm towards us during our stay. The location of her casa is perfect. Very close to the beach and many great restaurants, cafe's and bars. The view we had from our room was beautiful and we received fresh towels and sheets regularly. We would highly recommend staying here.
