'Buena Vista' is a large studio apartment, perfect for longer stays, max 3 months. The entrance is on the ground level, but because of the slope of the property, the balcony facing the pool and ocean has a second story view!
There is a walk-in 'Bodega' (storage room with metal door and dead bolt lock) big enough to keep all your valuables when you feel the need.
The condo, located in a very quiet area, is part of a six-apartment complex, all sharing the charcoal BBQ, the very large pool, and the outdoor shower.
Included in price is weekly maid service, local telephone service, fast, secure WiFi and different fruits when ready for eating.
For complete privacy, the property is nestled between lots of tropical plants and behind walls, locked gates and fences, allowing for 'Clothing Optional Costa Rica' kind of living.
If you like life in the nude, please inquire even if the calendar looks like the unit is booked. We might just have reserved Casa Banda for the nudists/naturists at that time.
Owners live on the premises, making sure everything is in the best working order, so you can truly enjoy your stay in your 'Home away from Home'.
Getting around.: It takes 10-15 minute to walk to the beach or the mouth of Rio Nosara for swimming, fishing, and shell collecting. (Coming back takes a little bit longer, because it is up-hill part of the way.)
Also within walking distance: Rancho Suisso Restaurant, Pancho's Market and Taverna, La Luna Restaurant, LaGarta Lodge, Leroy's River Tours, and Beate's Horseback Riding Tours.
Car or ATV is necessary for trips to Nosara Village and beyond. If you decide not to rent a vehicle for your entire stay, there is taxi service for a reasonable price and now five car rental places where you can rent for a day or more.
Nearby Playa Guiones is one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica. Surf Guiones during the day, but stay in peace and quiet on top of the hill above Playa Pelada, where the breezes will make it cool and comfortable.
Between July and December, the Olive Ridley sea turtles come to Playa Ostional, half hour away, to nest. Seeing this is a truly amazing experience
Despite our Scandinavian roots, we have always turned our eyes to the South when traveling for pleasure. In 1980, we emigrated to Virginia and found a climate much better than what we were used to in Denmark, but our vacations would generally take us even further south – and always to bodies of water. Over the years, we have seen many beautiful places, but it was always good to go back home to Virginia.
In the summer of 2000, we traveled to Nosara, Costa Rica for the first time. We stayed at a small resort, which a friend had made us aware of. It was love at first sight! Nosara had everything we like: beach, ocean, warm weather, tropical fruits, fresh fish, original, local flair and friendly people. For the first time, we felt very much “at home”. Nosara chose us to stay, and a building lot for sale nearby kept calling us. Building in a Central American country has been a very interesting experience! It has taken a little blood, lots of sweat and some tears - and more patience than we thought we had, but we love the result. We invite you to share in our dream.
Whether you just like to have lots of room or your office has to come with you on vacation, Buena Vista is the perfect apartment. Without being cramped, it is large enough for a full kitchen with a breakfast bar, a large dining table, a work desk, a king size, ocean view bed, full bath room, safe room, and a sitting corner......and that is just inside. Outside, on the covered balcony with sunset and ocean view, there is more room for dining, sitting and lounging in a hammock chair.
Because it is completely on a level below the top of the walls around the property, you will never have to put on clothes if you come during one of the 'Clothing Optional Costa Rica' periods.....as long as you stay inside the walls, of course :-)
