“Beautiful, spacious home but too close to construction and road noise.”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent 8 nights at this home along with another couple. There was more than adequate space with nicely decorated rooms and plenty of privacy in the very exclusive gated community. The porch area around the pool was beautiful with a spectacular view of the Bay. Unfortunately, the traffic noise below the house began by 6:30 am and got worse throughout the day ruining the ambience that the view provided. It was truly disappointing. The property manager was excellent and responded immediately to any questions or problems. We did recommend that new pots and pans be purchased due to the Teflon peeling up in most the skillets and large cooking pots. The home is near Playa Hermosa and a short drive to Playa Coco and about 31/2 hrs to Mount Arenal. Locals are very nice, food was great but expect to pay fairly high when eating out. Also, highly recommend 4wheel drive rental!

Management Response

We are sorry about the construction noise you had. The good news is they were repaving and adding wider sidewalks on the entrance road to the beach, and did this over the slow season during your stay.

“Breathtaking view and terrific location”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This property was lovely and well appointed. We took the ower's suggestion to hire Rocio to cook for us and were NOT disappointed. The layout was perfect for our two families (four adults and four children) and it was a short walk to the beach. We did not rent a car, but recommend doing that because the walk back from the beach, while it's not far up the hill, is a tough walk on a hot day with kids! The management company was very helpful getting us quotes for cars so we would do that next time.
We also took advantage of using Tico Tours to go on a few excursions and they were incredible. Very knowledgable, flexible and accomodating and managed our large group really well.
All around we highly recommend both this area (a little less touristy and cheesy than Playa del Coco) and this property. Can't wait to go back!

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were a group of five friends and family staying at Casa Buena Vista over the Christmas week. The week overall was superb from the moment we were picked up at the airport until the sad moment we had to leave! The Villa, management company (Milagro) and recommended tours (Tico Tours) were all excellent - staff were friendly, prompt, and catering to our every need. The villa was very clean, fully equipped with all the amenities in the kitchen, TV and wifi and laundry facilities. It was big enough for us all to have our space and privacy, however the open areas were really conducive to spending time together just enjoying the beautiful view and nature all around (lots of interesting iguanas and lizards, insect life, birds). We even took advantage of in-house massages on the roof terrace and a private chef for Christmas dinner which was simply delicious! The owner of the house gave us a lovely welcome email with some tips about the area, however we actually didn't leave the villa much except for tours - it was just such a nice place to stay and relax, and enjoy the spectacular view. It had everything we needed, and the grocery store was just a short walk away.

Overall Casa Buena Vista is a beautiful home in a beautiful location. We certainly would love to return very soon! Booking is highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!
