My girlfriend and myself are traveling to Costa Rica during the holidays this winter and have been having trouble finding accommodation because of it being the busiest season of the year. Although Jay was already booked during this time period, he took the time to help us find other places in the area and continued to keep in contact until... More

Buena Vista Villas was a nice place to stay. There were a few glitches (such as the shower), but the owner, Jay, solved all of them. Jay and his staff--especially Penny--are great hosts who are willing to help any way they can. I rented a car while I was there and I would highly recommend any traveler do the same.... More

We stayed with Jay for one night and loved the area we were in. It seemed like we were staying in the middle of the wilderness and it was beautiful! Not surprised that Jay won a TA award for best value! We had a little trouble finding the road that lead up the mountain to Buena Vista. If you're driving... More

Pura Vida! Wow, this place is absolutely amazing AND SO IS Jay...aka Jota, or Sandy. Went to Nosara at almost the same exact time last year as we did this year and this time we brought the fam, 4 kids. We stayed in the Casa this time and loved every second of it.

I traveled to Nosara to escape from the US for 90 days. My intention was to work (on my laptop) and relax. I started renting from Jay on Feb 14th and moved out on March 26th. I'm writing this review to provide information to others who might be interested in this hotel. The building is set on top of one... More

Jay and his property were great. The place is removed enough for a short drive to beach and restaurants, yet we were not always in the car. You can easily get to any of the beaches, especially Guionnes to surf If you want a pool, check out his other property instead. Jay is great with helping with his surf board... More

The villas were amazing, clean, fresh, roomy, beautifully designed and well maintained. The grounds around the vilas are nothing less than amazing with spectacular views of both the forests and mountains on one side and the waves of Playa Guillones on the other. The owner Jay was more than hospitable. He is very laid back, knowledgable about the area and... More

This was my first trip to the Nosara area. I have visited CR many times but typically favor Santa Teresa. I have also been all around the Tamarindo area. I wanted to try Nosara as I had heard good things. We found Buena Vista Villa through Trip Advisor and Jay was helpful right from the beginning. This is why we... More

My partner and I stayed here from June 12th-20th in Villa 2. I found the place through AirBNB, but contacted Jay, the owner directly by finding him online. He is a very generous and helpful individual who is genuine from the first time you speak to him. Our flight arrived at 9pm local time in Liberia, meaning we would not... More
