Providencia is THE perfect Caribbean island and after seeing and hearing about numerous other places to stay on the island, I can highly recommend Hans's apartment. The apartment has a kitchen, dining table, hammock and washing machine outside, but under a covered roof. It is open on three sides, but private because it is on the top level. The view to the water is lovely and a breeze is always coming down from the hills right through that deck area! We lived outside! There is also a bedroom that is air conditioned and a bathroom. There is another bedroom available also if there are more than two people. Hans is married to a local woman and they are both lovely people that went way beyond expectations. I can't tell you how many times they brought up breakfast or dinner or a coconut with a straw in it! Good cooks too! They also own a tienda and it is very convenient to get anything you need there. He will also rent his moto, which is nice to ride around the island. The water is literally a two minute walk away and the white sand, palm tree lined beach is five minutes walk away. There are several restaurants on the beach and one restaurant puts out lounge chairs...no rent. You could be in Southwest Bay and not have to go anywhere else. But it is fun to explore the rest of the island, if only to find that you have stayed in the right place! Just don't book this when we want to go back!

We stayed at Posada Buena Vista for ten days and have nothing but praise for the facility, the view from the deck, and the hospitality of Hans and Criss, the owners.
They really make you feel a part of their family and continually ask if there is anything else they can do to make your stay more pleasant. You can rent their scooter for a very reasonable fee; the added benefit of their grocery store right below you is fantastic. And the location in Southwest, a five minute walk from the best beach and the number one rated restaurant are things that add to the experience. Bottom line, Posada Buena Vista is definitely the best place to stay on Providence.
