Holiday Rental House
Sitting high in the southern Pacific mountains of Costa Rica, this gem of a home offers stunning sunrises, a beautiful river and ponds, the sounds of tropical birds and howler monkeys, and seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables. Hike to the mountain top and take in stunning views of the pacific ocean, or stroll to the nearby river for a refreshing swim. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy on one of the huge family sized rocks, or better yet have some delicious empanadas delivered to you at the river. When you get back, settle into the hammock with a cool tropical drink. After all, this is your vacation! Casa Buena Vista has 2 bedrooms, one queen bed and one full, and one comfortable bathroom with shower and endless hot water. Warm days and pleasantly cool nights make air conditioning unnecessary. ...Sitting high in the southern Pacific mountains of Costa Rica, this gem of a home offers stunning sunrises, a beautiful river and ponds, the sounds of tropical birds and howler monkeys, and seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables.

Casa Buena Vista has 2 bedrooms, one queen bed and one full, and one comfortable bathroom with shower and endless hot water. Warm days and pleasantly cool nights make air conditioning unnecessary. The kitchen is stocked with most items you will need, but please contact us if you have questions. You can place an order for a home cooked meal to arrive at your doorstep, and for fresh fruits, vegetables and other foods to be delivered weekly. We even have pizza delivery! If you are so inclined, you can join your host for a challenging morning run on the mountain. Afterwards, schedule a relaxing on-site massage, make arrangements to enjoy the wood-fired hot tub, or a cold craft beer or two from Jungle Brew Cerveceria (always quiet), located next door! Casa Buena Vista has been enjoyed by guests from Texas, Michigan, Virginia, Ohio and several other states, as well as Austria, Russia and Canada, and their reviews speak volumes (see below). Spending time here is a great way to get away from the typical tourist scene of Costa Rica, and a short drive down the mountain brings you to beautiful, uncrowded beaches. The area is loaded with outdoor activities, such as canopy tours, waterfalls, deep sea fishing and river rafting. A variety of tours of local attractions are available. Four wheel drive is needed to access this unspoiled location, but the drive is well worth it. The community of Serenity Gardens Eco Village is tucked away in the Pacific mountains about 4 hours south of SJO airport, but it's a short 25 minute drive to the town of Pejibaye with grocery and hardware stores, gas and car repair, and local restaurants. 40 minutes down the beach road brings you to the unique town of Ojochal with many great restaurants. Beautiful nearby beaches that are rarely crowded are also 40-45 minutes away. The busy town of San Isidro del General is also just over an hour's drive. Bus service from San Isidro del General serves the small town of Zapote just 15 minutes from the community. 4WD car rental is available at Hertz in Uvita. Tell David you are a Casa Buena Vista referral for 20% off! Need additional assistance? Let us know! High Speed internet is included, along with television and DVD player. A Firestick that provides access to a wide range of programming can be checked out for use. For Netflix, bring your username and password. Some guest feedback: 'We can definitely recommend this place to everyone who is looking for pure nature and real Costa Rica! After an adventurous drive from the coast up to casa buena vista (make sure you go with 4WD) we got to a beautiful house with a stunning view wich even exceeded our expectations. Todd and Jill were perfect hosts! They had a lot of insider information for our hole trip and secret spots close to the ecovillage and helped us whenever they could. The garden is full of fruits and herbs and they are growing like crazy! Casa buena vista is a clean, cosy and fully equipped house with a marvelous view, even out of the bed. All in all the 4 of us had 3 wonderful days and are looking forward to come back some time! Pura vida!' Julia (Austria), December 2016 'Casa Buena Vista has been for us a life changing experience! If anyone is looking to know what Pura Vida means, it is definitely the place to go! The casa had everything we needed and was very neat!The hosts (Todd, Jill, Toby and of course the guard : Mousha the dog!) are perfect! They gave us plenty tips about what to do, eat or see in the region. This is a perfect spot to go if you want to be far from the crowd and find serenity. The views from the deck is breathtaking! Make sure to rent a 4x4 to get there, the road is surprisingly funny to ride! But be aware: it is possible you might stay there and never come back!! Casa Buena Vista is definitely a must in Costa Rica! Thank you again amigos for everything!' Patrick (Quebec, Canada), January 2018 More

Nice to see this place on trip advisor. We stayed in Casa Buena Vista during our first trip to Costa Rica in February and absolutely loved it. It is a bit of an adventure to get there and you should consider a 4 wheel drive...More
