Gorgeous setting and views with spacious well appointed home.
Everything was better than we expected! The pictures do not do the house, the view, or the property, justice. Plus, Anna Maria, the housekeeper, was friendly but discreet and kept the interior shining.
If there was not so much to do and see in CR, all of us agreed we could easily have spent all of our time enjoying the house, the view, the pool and the resident dogs.
We all (6 of us) highly recommend this property, you won’t be disappointed.
I am glad they really enjoyed their stay
Very nice house with great view. Daily maid and grounds keeper a great addition.
We enjoyed our 10 day stay at Casa Buena Vista. The property is up fairly high which makes for a great view of the bay and ocean, but makes the walk to the beaches long and steep. The beaches below (Playa Penca and Playa Prieta) are two of the nicest beaches in the area. A car is needed to get to other beaches, restaurants, and other activities. The master bedroom is large and very nice. The other two bedrooms are significantly smaller. The house and entire property are very clean and well maintained by Anna-Maria (the daily maid) and Ernesto (the grounds keeper). The air conditioning in the bedrooms is very good but none in the kitchen - great room area. Overall, this is a very nice home for rent and at a good price.
This house and setting are beautiful. We were four adults who stayed in the home for a week. Although we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated many of the positive aspects of the house...namely: Anna Maria and Ernesto; the dogs; the gorgeous porch; the pool; proximity and easy walking access to Playa Penca; roominess of the master bedroom and bath....there are a few opportunities that would have improved our stay. The fan in the living room does not work (we did mention this to Jorge, who, in every other way was a delight to work with, but in this case, never did see that it was repaired.) Also, we would have liked more than just one wine glass and another standard sized coffee mug. The shower tile in the master bath is in need of a good cleaning or re-grouting. Attention to these minor needs would have made it a 5-Star rating, in my opinion, but I would definitely recommend the property. Mic and the onsite staff were extremely helpful and responsive.
Thanks so much for your kind words and your feedback is much appreciated! Please accept our apologies for the fan - we thought that had been resolved prior to your arrival and will handle that immediately! The grout in the master bedroom is dark gray/ black and we agree that needs to be chipped out and regrouted in the shower (that’s on our list for a summer project). There are or were 12-16 white coffee mugs in the cabinet above the island - we will certainly have staff check on that tomorrow! Sometimes certain items just seem to disappear ... like wine glasses. We no longer stock wine glasses because they would vanish - we’ve tried stem glasses, non stem glasses and hard plastic glasses. Our fear was that they were likely getting broken at the pool or terrace which would create a problem for bare feet. Instead we started stocking smaller low ball glasses. That being said, I did just look at some new stemless hard plastic wine glasses at BedBath, so based on your feedback Will give it another try! Appreciated your taking the time to let us know and thrilled you loved your experience. Some days we don’t make it off the terrace... (smile).
Peace & tranquillity
Excellent stay that was very peaceful. The guard trio were fun to have along with the magpie jays eating breakfast. We had good chuckles with the howler monkeys serenading us one night. Beach combing in the rocks at low tide was very interesting!!
Staff was wonderful and fun to refresh our Spanish with, Anna Marie is a dear.
I am happy you had a great time
Beautiful house view incredible views!
Our family of six stayed for two weeks in January. Everything was perfect and as detailed . Since we had our four month old grandson with us, we did not eat dinners out very much. I found cooking in the kitchen like being in a sauna! I finally asked Jorge for a fan, which helped somewhat. He did deliver the fan right away, which was great, i realize the living room would be hard to air condition, but we couldn’t even sit there as it was much too uncomfortably hot, even with the ceiling fan. That said, we always ate our dinners on the gorgeous terrace at sunset and overlooking the lights of Flamingo. The staff were lovely and hard working. We wanted the coconuts removed from the tree over the pool, and Alberto did that the next day. There were a few falling coconuts and we didn’t want any to fall while we were in the pool! In all, we had an amazing two weeks!
This is a great review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. The grounds and the people are amazing. Love all the pictures we have taken of the views while on the veranda.
We are really glad you enjoyed your stay!
