Spent a full week here in February of 2014, and it was beautiful. The room was quite nice, and had a lovely breeze coming through, and a balcony with a hammock. Set the tone for a fantastic trip. Jay and Penny were so kind and welcoming. Jay rented us surfboards, and was very helpful in learning the local spots, making... More

I loved the solitude of this place. The bed was the best I've slept on while traveling here in Costa Rica. The service was excellent and Jay and Penny were both very helpful. Only trouble was wifi signal strength. The Hammocks and trails around the property were the best.

Unfortunately I am the typical American who suffers a bit without his air conditioning.

We stayed for 5 nights in Buena Vista Villas and had a wonderful stay. We loved it being on the mountain and therefore receiving a nice breeze. The views were stunning. Penny (SO informative and friendly) and Chester were wonderful and our 5 year old son fell in love with them. He also enjoyed getting limes from the fruit tree... More

I love Buena Vista Villas. You basically MUST have a vehicle and it ought to be an SUV, but that considered, this is my fave hotel in Nosara. The view is unbeatable and the hotel is private, quiet, and comfortable. There is immediate access to trails that provide a great experience of the tropical dry forest with species like Pochote...

We stayed in Villa 3 which only had windows opening on one side and it was almost too hot to sleep. We kept the ceiling fan running and Penny brought over a very small fan to put in the window, but it really did not help. Even though there was a nice breeze outside and the temps cooled down at...
