This is a perfect spot for travelers on a budget. Located at walking distance from good restaurants, bus stop and a supermarket. The beach is close and the breakfast is good. Said that, there are a few cons that I'm not gonna detail as the owner doesn't appreciate any negative feedback from her customers to improve the experience. In short,...

My girlfriend and I booked casa buena vista on airbnb and didn't really know what to expect. We were very impressed and surprised with how nice the place was and how nice Anita was. Our stay in Manuel Antonio and Casa Buena Vista was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Tips: Don't book this B&B expecting...

You are so right that we are not a 5 star hotel and never pretended to be one although there are many fine hotel available on our street with $200 and up prices for rooms. At $50 for two people for breakfast we do the best we can. Sorry than you didn’t like my place. We certainly do not force...

We were incredibly pleased with our stay at Casa Buena Vista! The Casa is CLOSE TO NATURE and we loved it. Bats, howler monkeys and humming birds are a common sight from the patio and there were plenty of other critters close by to see. Next door was a dog who adopted a raccoon baby, on her own! The owner...

This place is reasonably prices, has a rustic décor. The rooms are nice and the place is safe. If any of you have ever been to Kartuzy Lodge, Barry's Bay Ontario Canada, this place has the same atmosphere and both owners share the same zodiac sign. The owner Anita is very helpful, but not intrusive. She will help to arrange...

Anita was a very welcoming host who made us feel right at home. Her place is ideally situated in Manuel Antonio making it very easy to get around town or just enjoy the view. It was quite busy while we were there, but Anita still took time to chat with us each morning and give us advice on dining and...

My wife and me stayed here for three nights. We stayed in the teak room, which was basically one of two rooms that share a bathroom near a common area with a kitchen. The rooms were clean with ceiling fans. The walk to the room was down a stairwell that had a group of bats above your head, kinda different...

I stayed at Casa Buena Vista B&B for the first 4 nights of my 3 week trip to Costa Rica. It was quite affordable. I traveled the entire country and this location had probably the best view from the room, breakfast area, and guesthouse in general. There was a private road that led right down to the beach not to...

“Rooms below the car port have great views, but closer to the road. Rooms below the teak house may be quieter. At any rate plan on being awake at 5:30. You can already get exercise and see wildlife by breakfast at 07:30. I can hear the tucans down the road now.”
