“One week in paradise”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Our stay at casa buenavista was beautiful. The room was very nice, big and clean. The breakfast, especially because it was self made was awesome. We really enjoyed staying at Cinzia & Fiorenzo house. The beach is just a few minutes from the b&b and just beautiful. We've been there at off season, so we had the beach just for ourself. Carrillo is a sweet little village, with all you need. It was also very easy to get there. You just take a bus from San Jose, for 7$... Overall is was one of our nicest holidays and we would live to come back some day.

Wonderful place to stay near Carrillo Beach. The room was such a cute cozy place. The whole property was immaculate. We loved the gardens and the breakfasts and our sweet hosts. Enjoyed the short walks to Carrillo Beach each morning and evening. The water was perfect, waves just the right size to enjoy and we felt very safe. Also enjoyed the local soccer games and the nearby restaurants. Hope to return again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This is an update to our review that we wrote 12/24/11. We stayed at Casa Buenavista again in May 2013 and found it to be as wonderful as the first time. It was like returning to see old friends as Cinzia and Fiorenzo are so very warm and welcoming. We stayed in the same guest room (the one downstairs) and found a new queen size bed which was wonderful and a new wardrobe. There was plenty of room to hang/store our things/clothes which was great. They have also completed some new landscaping. The plants and flowers were beautiful! Cinzia's breakfasts were fantastic with fresh fruit, homemade bread and jam, coffee and hot tea, and homemade cookies and cake. It was so nice to sit outside and leisurely eat our breakfast while watching the birds. We laughed at the parrot next door in the mornings with his chorus of holas and hellos. We enjoyed the use of wifi in our room to catch up on e-mail. The beach was as remembered, being beautiful and pristine and only a short walk from Casa Buenavista. We plan to visit again and again!

Oh . . . I wish I were there right now! Cinzia and Fiorenzo's home was relaxing, uplifted and healing (we both received excellent Shiatsu treatments from Fiorenzo). Together this kind, dependable, and engaging couple have created a well-tended, much loved gem right up the hill from the beautiful and sparsely populated beach, Playa Carrillo. I want everyone I love to go visit!

And all the glowing comments from the other reviewers are all true. Cinzia really does get up sometime before 5 a.m. to bake a mouth watering assortment of breads for her guests and presents these along with homemade marmalades and freshly cut fruit in an artful spread every morning in their outdoor rancho (covered area for relaxing). I felt so pampered. Our room and bathroom were always impeccably clean with fresh sprigs of flowers that appeared daily while we were out. Both Cinzia and Fiorenzo were warm and friendly when we were looking to engage in conversation and intuitively respectful of our private time as well (we were on our honeymoon). And the town was perfect. I was so happy to stay in Playa Carrillo instead of Samara, which was a jumble of tourist shops. Our little local beach was perfect for swimming, sunbathing, meditating and sweet morning runs (which I often ended up taking with some local horses out for their morning romp in the surf . . . talk about beautiful!). I'd also highly recommend doing something fun with Tad (also known as Popo) at Blue Barrel Surf School in Playa Carrillo. We went for an early morning kayak and snorkeling trip with him. He is a wealth of information and stories.

Enjoy connecting with these lovely people in such a beautiful relaxing place!

It's very simple to say

" IT FEELS LIKE HOME"
It's 5 minutes to the beach and a 10 minute ride into Samara where you'll find what feels like a surf town in the 70's with little local shops, sodas ( lunch places ) surf shops and a variety of "ALL" of the above.
Your hosts Cinzia and Fiorenzo are great and make you feel at home the moment you arrive .
The rooms are CLEAN, WELL APPOINTED and very cozy. The upper room has A/C as well as a ceiling fan and small fridge.
Others have said the homemade breads and carrot cake are amazing, well guess what, they are, along with other surprises !!!!
Breakfast is offered each day with Tea, Coffee, Fresh Fruit, Homemade Jams for the homemade breads and with the beach and rain forest around you makes this little 2 room BuenaVista B&B Perfect.

Casa Buena Vista is a little private piece of paradise just a short walk from a beautiful, coconut palm lined, deserted beach! Cinzia and Fiorenzo are a sweet Italian couple who welcomed us like old friends and truly did pamper us. The little casa is romantic, very clean and a very comfortable bed. Cinzia had fresh flowers in our room every day! Cinzia made a delicious breakfast with fresh fruits, home made breads and muffins, served with her homemade marmalades that she served under their terrace. The yard is enchanting and perfectly manicured! We saw Howler Monkeys and McCaw Parrots from our little terrace. We only got to stay three nights and we didn’t want to leave! Pura Vida!!!

Cinzia and Fiorenzo are all about making sure your stay at Casa Buenavista B & B is comfortable and enjoyable. Each guest room is decorated in Cinzia's eclectic style, with attention to detail, as well as being very clean. Her healthy breakfast of fruit with granola, homemade breads and wonderful coffee will leave you satisfied. The beach and restaurants are within walking distance. Our family felt pampered and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We miss Casa Buenavista and the soothing environment already!
