The photos don’t do it justice! Casa Buena Vida is the perfect place for a laid back getaway. This home is so peaceful and naturally gorgeous that I often stayed by the pool while my fellow travelers walked to the beach just a few steps at the end of the road. The trees and flowers are breathtaking. We enjoyed watching birds, iguanas and even howler monkeys. The house is conducive to chilling, which we really needed. It’s easy to hang out at the pool, on the patio or indoors on the big couch or around the table. Everything we needed – except surfboards, but we had those delivered – was right there.
Case Buena Vida is centrally located so although we didn’t have a car, we were able to walk to the shops and restaurants both on the beach and along the main road in town. It’s also next door to a small hotel with a restaurant and spa, so it was like having hotel amenities while staying in a house. Because we walked everywhere and swam and surfed every day, we slept hard at night. The comfy beds and air conditioning helped, too!
The owner was very easy to work with and helped with recommendations on grocery delivery, eating out and activities. She didn’t steer us wrong. There is even a book with recommendations for things to do and places to go in the house. We had a blast and will definitely be back! I’d recommend to anyone!
