The Apartment at Buena Vista

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

My lovely home - Buena Vista - is so called because of the wonderful views of the sea, creek and mountains which one can enjoy all year round. Buena Vista is a modern tropical style home set in a luscious tropical garden with a small but most adequate swimming pool. It is a mile away from the sleepy town of Punta Gorda with its colourful market where one can buy all kinds of interesting and exotic fruit and vegetables. The apartment, which is advertised here, is incorporated into the main residence - yet totally self-contained and is available almost all year round. The main residence may be available for periods at a time. The entire property is a non-smoking domain. Also, potential guests are advised that there is no TV/cable services to the property. However, there is a fairly strong wifi service to the apartment.

Perfect place to stay in PG!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to PG and this time we were staying longer, so we were delighted to find Ms Kamie's lovely apartment! It is extremely comfortable, breezy and airy. What makes it so perfect is the lady who owns it! We feel like we've made a new friend. Kamie is so kind and welcoming, and we had lots of fun with her and her friends. We loved having more space than you would find in a hotel room, and of course the flexibility to cook is always great. We enjoyed bicycling into town for market days, and finding interesting fruits and veggies to try. It's also delightful to have access to outdoor space for relaxing, and the pool is especially inviting. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone, it is truly delightful and extremely comfortable. Thank you Ms Kamie!

Spacious Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Immediate impression was "WOW!" The property, grounds and apartment are all so much more then the photos show. The beauty and meticulous care of the property shows the love the owner has for her home. High ceiling with fans, open cool breezes from the many windows, and the Carribean Sea direct across the driveway, which is gated for privacy. It was a 5 minute drive into Punta Gorda, with many local places in walking distance. Crisp sheets, fresh towels, laundry facility and kitchen essentials so we had the ability to make and keep meals. The best find was the coffee pot she provided for fresh brewed coffee each morning!

Ms. Kamie was such a warm and gracious host - we absolutely adored her. Informative, helpful and engaging, our regret is we did not have more time to spend with her personally. I would suggest to any mature couple traveling into the Toledo District, that you reward yourself by staying at this location - you will be as amazed by the beauty as we were!

Lovely Buena Vista was our home for 7 weeks in February and March, 2014. The place is immaculate, the decor beautiful, and the comfortable bed with it wonderful linens was a special delight. Every room in the spacious apartment is graced with large windows that provide views of the tropical beauty surrounding the property. Despite increasingly warm temperatures, the sea breeze through the apartment, along with quality ceiling fans, made living and sleeping very comfortable without having to use AC. The tropical grounds are beautiful and private, the front veranda is perfect for relaxing just metres from the sea, and the pool is crystal clean. It is a short 20 minute walk to the colourful Market Street, and everything else is within that walk. Ms Kamie is an excellent host who takes good care of her guests. Everything about Buena Vista is Delightful!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had an excellent experience recently; sleeping with a cool natural breeze and a view of the Caribbean sea every night for a month, it was relaxing to say the least. The apartment at Buena Vista is wonderful! Definitely one of the best I've ever stayed in. It's extremely spacious, clean, has a fully stocked kitchen, nice furniture, tiled flooring and is the perfect distance from town. Ms. Kami has a very elegant and beautiful home which she maintains extremely well. Counting the days until I get the chance to stay there again!
