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. Despite assurancews about mountainside breezes, the reality is that the rooms about ready very warm through much of the day. I was very lucky that Penny provided my with a large fan that made sleep possible. Jay is very friendly and provided lots of local information... More

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...

A few months ago I planned a trip to Costa Rica. Over the course of two weeks I asked jay all sorts of picky questions and had to book and then change my reservations. Later, at the last minute I had to cancel the whole trip. From beginning to end, Jay was very helpful and understanding and I appreciate his... More

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...

This was a really great place for us to stay. There was a kitchen and fridge in our room, clean and cozy with a great view. We had a roof top deck to view the ocean and surroundings from and on our second stay we had our own porch with a hamik for afternoon chilling. Buena Vista Villas has accommodation... More

BVV is a dramatic spot high up on a ridge with a roof-top balcony - spectacular views of ocean and mountains. Penny and Chester are kind and generous hosts who helped us enjoy the beach and restaurant and made sure we were comfortable. Good driving directions and GPS are essential but the welcome is warm and the experience rewarding.

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was wonderful. Nice and quiet. Plenty of wildlife, I loved the monkeys. Buena Vista Villas had everything I needed including a great hostess, Penny, who took care of all my needs. Just far enough from town to get rid of the dust and noise. Great view, clean rooms with a small kitchen... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in Villa 5 and it was wonderful. Close to town yet away from the dust of the road and all the noise. The only sounds were the birds and the monkeys. Wonderful shady porch and a mini kitchen with a good size fridge, microwave and sink. Great views. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds and... More
