About George Peake

We love to travel, and fell in love with Costa Rica about 9 years ago. We appreciate the variety of environments and regions here, the friendliness of the people, and of course the sun and the warm ocean water.

Why George Peake chose Guanacaste

This area of Guanacaste was designated by the Costa Rican governement to develop tourism, because of the natural beauty here and the drier, more predictable climate. The small community is focused on livablity while keeping substainablity in the forefront.

What makes this villa unique

The awesome view and the easy walk to the beach are key, and the house is great for famlies or small groups with common areas for socializing, plus privacy. The house is deorated to reinforce the lively, tropical feeling of Costa Rica, with all of the amenities of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are having a wonderful time at your Casa Buena Vista. All of our young adult children made it here for holiday festivities. The accommodations were great for our family, with everyone having their own room (we took the spacious master suite upstairs), and plenty of general space for gathering. The morning ritual became the entire family sipping coffee and visiting at the outside tables. Following your recommendations, the family enjoyed beaches, a river tour, zip lining, Sunburst Coffee, and some fun shopping for small gifts to take home.

We really appreciate your kitchen facilities. With six of us, it was very pleasant to have meals here when people returned from their day’s adventures. The local grocery and the meat market at the bottom of the hill made for easy shopping. We also discovered the grocery stores in Playas del Coco. Having a full size washer and dryer makes a big difference for this long a stay, and the maid service has been top notch.

Beautiful home: Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Buena Vista was a perfect choice for four retired couples. The home is spacious, well appointed and beautifully decorated. Frazer, the concierge was extremely helpful, organizing tours and making great suggestions for day trips. It is well located for exploring the beautiful beaches and parks of Guanacaste, with stunning views of Playa Hermosa and spectacular sunsets! Our group was very active, so walking up and down the drive was no problem except maybe in the heat of the afternoon. We walked to nearby restaurants several evenings. Try Villa del Sueno for the music on Fridays, and Ginger's for tapas! All in all a wonderful vacation in a wonderful location!

Nous étions un groupe de 7, l'espace était parfait , il y avait de la place pour ne pas se piler sur les pieds, l'emplacement superbe, c'était bien entretenu... malgré un petit problème d'air conditionné qui dégageais parfois un odeur désagréable.. un peu d'aération et le tour est jouer, il y avait également le débit d'eau dans les douches qui n'était pas trop fort mais on s'en sortais. Sinon c'etait le paradis.

Le concierge Fraser nous a tres bien accueillis et a répondu à nos demandes tout au long de notre séjour.

Je recommanderais cet endroit n'importe quand ,c'est sécuritaire, bien situer.. 15 minutes de marche pour la plage en pente descendante,, on ne l'as pas fait pour remonter :-) belle plage avec quelques bons petit Resto, épicerie à proximité. Je recommande une voiture si vous voulez visiter et vous rendre aux autres plages,boutiques et autres.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the week we just spent at this beautiful villa! It was immaculate and perfect for our group of 8; two families including 4 young adults. For starters the view is fabulous from all of the rooms....nothing like waking up to look at the beautiful Pacific right from your bed! Sunsets are absolutely breathtaking, also. (We were also fortunate to see a full moon setting over ocean early one morning.) The villa has everything you need...the kitchen has all the amenities; blender, plenty of flatware and serving dishes...even a rolling pin for our ambitious pizza dough maker! The dishwasher, although new, wasn't working, but the property managers were very responsive when we let them know. Frazer at Milagro Property Mgt was so charming and very helpful with tour and other sight-seeing suggestions. He also reserved our rental cars and had our kitchen stocked with the items we requested prior to our arrival. The house had plenty towels, sheets, etc. as well as ample seating inside and out for our large group. A smart TV in the upstairs family room for the "kids" to watch Netflix at night after the old folks went to bed was also a big hit! We walked to the nearby grocery store and to Playa Hermosa a few times, but a rental car would definitely be recommended to see the area. The house is on a hill that would be difficult for small children or elderly to navigate. The pool was maintained by a service and always sparkling clean...very refreshing after a day of site seeing! We would most definitely stay at this beautiful home again...Pure Vida!

It Hit the Spot!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I travelled with 4 nieces and nephews and this house worked out great with 4 BR. It had been difficult to find houses that had twin beds. My sister and I each had our own bedrooms with on-suite baths and the 4 nieces and nephews shared the other two bedrooms and bath. The house has everything you need. Even though the pool is not huge it more than fit our needs. We used it everyday. The view from every room was fabulous. It is in a great location, close to Liberia airport, the beach and town. Lots of great restaurants in town. Really nice beach. I would have given it 5 stars except we had some maintenance issues- no hot water in master bath for several days, dryer unvented causing steam to fill the laundry room and accumulate in puddles on the floor, lights in pool not working, lights broken in ceiling fixtures in kitchen, confusing light switches (they are everywhere and it is difficult to figure out which switch works which lights. When called, Fraser, from the concierge company quickly had someone respond to fix everything. He was wonderful and accommodated all our needs.

Don't let any of this deter you from staying here. There was 6 of us ranging from age 15 to 57 and we all loved it. If you wanted to be alone, there were several places to do that, rooftop deck, large wrap-around porch on second floor, two living areas. It really is a wonderful place. Owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. We would definitely stay again.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Buena Vista in June, 2016. The house was beautiful, the views were awesome! Our family of 8 stayed very comfortable. It is spacious with all the amenities needed, washer, dryer, iron,etc. etc. The infinity pool was perfect with the outdoor space very amiable! The house is so close to many amenities including Playa Del Coco. We truly enjoyed the house only wished we could stay longer! We will definitely stay again!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot get much better than this for beauty, comfort, close to all amenities, as well as everything being exactly as advertised! Everything above board from dealing with owner and care and attention to detail from Frazer at the management company. Gorgeous spacious home with spectacular views from everywhere, and kept impeccably clean. Our adult family of 6 had a fantastic stay and enjoyed snorkeling, fishing and ate at the numerous area restaurants which all had fresh fish and seafood on the menu. Totally recommend this property to anyone who is inquiring, as it is everything that it says it is.
