“The Highlight of Our Trip!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

What an amazing paradise! We absolutely fell in love with this amazing home, but what we loved even more...the owners, Yolanda and John! They truly made our time in Costa Rica memorable and our most favorite memories of the trip were the ones they suggested (and even booked for us!) specifically. They did everything from offer advice on where to go, escort us to some hidden gems, and even put on the tunes/outdoor lighting for us upon our return each night. They truly truly care about their guests and the experience they have. We were very lucky to have found them and this beautiful spot! The view was amazing and very close to several attractions. Please please ask the owners for their advise on "must sees". They are very willing to share the local favs that will leave u loving your time in Costa Rica! Thanks so much Yolanda, John and Andrew! You are truly beautiful people and it was a pleasure to have shared our vacation with you!

“Truly an incredible experience!!!”
Reviewed January 19, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We rented Yolanda and Jon's place for 3 days and honestly wished our entire vacation was to stay at Casa Buena Vista! This house is absolutely amazing! The pool! The view! And to have owners who genuinely care about our experience in Costa Rica. They guided us to the best destinations and knew all the good, local places to eat. It was nice to get a feel for the culture and to visit less touristy places. Not only would I go back to Costa Rica, but I would only be staying at this facility. It is nice and secluded but close enough to any activities you want to do. We were very well taken care of and feel like we received a very customary trip due to Yolanda and Jon's advice! It was just the type of get-a-way we were looking for. Thank you for the incredible experience guys!

“Costa Rica at its Finest!”
Reviewed December 6, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Casa Buena Vista is situated on top of a hill overlooking the Playa Esterillos and Pacific Ocean, and is only a short 2-3 minute drive to the beach. The home is about 25km South of Jaco and very conveniently located for anywhere you would like go up or down the coast. The centralized location is perfect for a "base" that is not too close to the action in Jaco, but not too far away either!

The accommodations at Casa Buena Vista were more than expected and the ability to sit back and relax by the pool watching the Sunrise, Sunsets, Iguana, Parrots and Coatimundi, or inside the spacious living and dining area was especially enjoyed by everyone.

Since this was our first trip to Costa Rica, John was especially helpful in getting us pointed in the right direction for several places to go and things to do (don't miss a tour with Rafa "The Father of the Monkeys"!), and with John's guidance I think we did a pretty good job of taking in a lot of what that region of Costa Rica has to offer..... and believe it or not, you really can get a traditional Thanksgiving dinner including cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie in downtown Jaco!

As I mentioned, this was our first trip to Costa Rica, but based on the fun we had and the beauty of the country, we certainly will be back for more! Thank you John and Yolanda for a memorable stay at your beautiful Casa Buena Vista!

“Beautiful place you may never want to leave”
Reviewed November 26, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Owners very easy to work with & helpful in every way. The place is even more beautiful than shown. Loved seeing the parrots fly over every day as well as other wildlife while floating in the pool. Yolanda & John recommended many sites to see which we enjoyed but, the monkey tour was the best & they helped to provide an excellent deal. Will definitely return again!

“Perfect Paradise”
Reviewed April 1, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

It's hard to capture in words the beauty of this house and the hospitality of the homeowners. We felt like we were staying in our own private paradise. The home is stunning, the pool is inviting, the grounds are gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. We were lucky enough to be at the house when the homeowners were staying at the nearby guesthouse and they treated us like family instead of paying guests. They guided us to some of the many exciting adventures around the area, so our trip was both relaxing and adventurous. We will definitely be back!

We had one of the greatest weeks of our lives!!! The property was gorgeous and the house was magnificent. The property manager was always available to help with whatever was needed. The sunrise from the pool deck was breathtaking. This area of Costa Rica is a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation.
