Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Potrero and really loved your place! Jorge & Elvira each stopped by to make sure everything was going okay and we enjoyed their perspective. Anna Maria (the housekeeper) was really a blessing...and is a wonderful person to have around. We traveled to Playa Grande, Tamarindo, and Guaitil for pottery; looked around Pacific Heights; checked out Playa Penca and Prieta; played with your dogs and saw monkeys on the road to Costa Esmeralda. Most of our meals we cooked at the villa as we purchased seafood at the little stand you recommended. Best regards!

Excelente or Superb

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Costa Rica for our first time with 2 teenagers and 2 preteens. When we arrived at Villa Buena Vista, we were all very impressed with the layout, the grounds, the views and overall ambiance. The home is furnished very well with a great kitchen, wonderful pool which felt very good at the end of the day. The maid and groundskeeper just added to the overall experience. The two beaches close by are exceptional and relatively quiet. Jorge, the property manager, was a real asset and always very helpful. All in all, we give it our highest recommendation. We cannot wait to go back!!!!

Still dreaming of our trip

  • 5 of 5
Our family visited Costa Rica and stayed in this incredible house for a week and I am still dreaming of the trip and hope to go back there again! Everything was perfectly appointed and very comfortable. We loved spending the sunsets on the deck watching the parrots in the trees and looking for the green flash as the sun dipped below the horizon. The rooms were beautiful and spacious. The pool was wonderful for an evening dip after a day at the beach. Anna Marie took incredible care of us and was a delight! Ernesto was charming and always willing to help us if we had a question. The dogs were great company and joined us whenever we were home - we found that they even knew how to open the doors and let themselves in when someone set off some fireworks which scared poor Jack. The town of Potrero was perfect for our trip and was an easy drive to Playa Grande and other beaches. Thank you Mic for giving us highlights of places to see, where to eat and for all your help. We had the best vacation and we will definitely be telling our friends that THIS is the best spot in Costa Rica.

We just returned from our stay, and enjoyed every minute! The house is beautifully furnished and the views are magnificent! The grounds are meticulously landscaped, the pool crystal clear and both taken care of by Ernesto. Anna cleaned the house daily and even did our laundry if asked. They are both very kind and will help with whatever is asked. The dogs that live at the home are friendly and well behaved. I miss them already!

We were able to walk to the beach every day, the stores were centrally located, and there are many local restaurants to choose from. We drove up the coast to visit other beaches and the sights along the way are beautiful! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested in visiting the area!

Everything we hoped for, and more!

  • 5 of 5
This house is the perfect 3 bedroom close-to-the-beach rental in Playa Flamingo area you could hope for. The house is comfortable walking distance to two beautiful and nearly deserted beaches: Playa Penca (white sands) and Playa Prieta (mixed white and black). We loved chilling on the terrace for sundowners with our three new best friends, the guard dogs (who are very relaxed and great with people, btw). Short drives to other beaches and towns with grocery stores and restaurants.... we cooked the whole time, and grilled out by the pool especially. Check out the nearby fish market connected to a restaurant, a short drive from the house (at this time of review, across from the deserted gas station) where you can purchase fresh fish.. or eat there. It's easy living here! Thanks to the Ana Maria for great housekeeping while we were there, and Ernesto for his professionalism as a caretaker on-property (we never ran into each other but he was available if needed). We snorkeled on a boat trip off of nearby beach near Flamingo and it was magical -- Eduardo of Aqua Center handled ours -- a school of dolphins swam with our boat for a long time. The American owners were super friendly and helpful in helping our trip be the best, and Jorge (the nearby house manager) was also so friendly and on-the-ball, we knew we could count on him when needed ... which thankfully wasn't necessary beyond the check-in. Kitchen's nice, each bedroom has en-suite bathroom, and the pool was great after a day at the beach. (The pool was immaculate - thanks Ernesto.) We loved it.

GREAT VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent the Thanksgiving holiday at Villa Buena Vista with another couple. We stayed 8 nights and loved every minute of it. Everything about the home was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere we needed and found no need for a vehicle. There are 3-4 restaurants and 2-3 convenience stores within 1/2 mile of the home. There are numerous other restaurants, stores and a produce stand, "The Tourist", within 2 miles of the property. Flamingo is only about an hour walk from the property, along the beach. The property is situated on 2 acres and the caretakers, Ernesto & Anna Maria, do an excellent job maintaining everything. Anna Maria cleans the home daily and will even do your laundry, if it is laying on the floor or in the hamper. The on-site guard dogs were a pleasant surprise and were so much fun to have around. We will certainly return to this location when we visit Costa Rica again.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5
We flew into Liberia and had a tourist bus pick us up and take us to the house. On the way we went to the grocery store and a fruit stand. The next day we had our rental car delivered to the house...this was the BEST customer service that I had ever experienced. It was nice to not have to drive after the 5 hour flight and have someone bring us the rental.

The house was perfect for the four of us and all the beaches are within walking distance. The staff was extremely helpful and made our trip memorable. Annamarie and Ernesto are professional and extremely caring. We also had the pleasure of spending the week with 5 dogs who are welcoming and made the Villa feel like home. I recommend anyone who stays here will have a memorable trip and be blessed by the hospitality of the staff, the amazing views from the porch and the dogs who make you feel you're at home.
