Casa Buena Vista

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Casa Buena Vista just might be the most outfitted home in Puerto Piramides. We built this home for tourism. This home boasts the best view of the Southern Right Whale basking in the bay of any home in the town. In fact, when you lift your head up from the pillow it is likely you will see the whales jumping. The Valdes peninsula is a mecca for wildlife and is a World Heritage Site regularly filmed by the BBC, National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel among others. The entire peninsula is a national wildlife refuge. Do you remember seeing on the Discovery Channel the killer whales swimming up to shore to feed on seals...it happens here and this is the only place in the world where this behavior is accessible to humans. Our lovely little home is a one bedroom one bath. We have a queen bed and a single with a trundle bed underneath. The kitchen is complete with granite countertops, all cooking utensils, and a custom stainless steel oven.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
My family & I stayed at Casa Buena Vista in January of 2012. We had a fantastic time! The house is owned by a couple that lives in Costa Rica, but it is managed by Vivian, who lives right next door and makes sure everything is in working order.

The house is clean and comfortable. There is a fully-equipped kitchen (with a stunning window to look out while you're cooking!) and a bathroom. The bedroom has a comfortable bed, plus a sofa. The dining room has a trundle/pull-out bed in the corner, which was perfect for our kids. And the back yard has a deck, from which you can gaze out over the ocean.

We were there in the summer, so did not get to see any of the whales. But there was plenty of other wildlife around (penguins, sea lions) and we really enjoyed the relaxed pace of Puerto Piramides. The beach was incredible! Tons of room for the kids to run, and lots of interesting places for the kids to collect seashells and play in the sand.

Location

Activity and Interests

What Puerto Piramides and the Valdes Peninsula has in an inumerable amount of activities. You can experience some of the most amazing diving (day or night) with the natural fauna that abounds here. If you are into mountain biking you will love Piramides. Choose short trips of up to a few miles through the desert and along the coast for the novice or for the semi professional there are grueling trips of up to 50 miles. Rent a sandboard and go sandboarding. Naturally, whale watching is one of the biggest attractions this area has. Due to the special geography of the area the Southern Right Whale has chosen these waters for their annual respite from the frigid Antarctic winter. Each year they arrive in mass to have their babies and mate before returning south. During this period, which, incidentally, coincides with the North American Summer, they can be seen dancing on the waters. Even Lady Diana enjoyed her trip here to see the whales! If you enjoy bird watching then watchout because your life list may just increase by 50% here. Some of the most common of the 181 endemic species are Giant Petrels, Kelp and Dolphin Gulls, King and Rock Cormorants, Burrowing Parrot, Patagonian Yellow-finch, Grey-bellied Shrike-tyrant, Rusty-backed Monjita, Patagonian Canastero, Band-tailed Eremobius, White-throated Cacholote, Chubut Steamer-Duck, Blackish Oystercatcher, Dolphin Gull, and of course Magellanic Penguins. Take a trip down to Punto Tombo and check out the largest colony of Magellanic Penguins which at times may reach 3 million strong. some of the most common animals seen here on the peninsula are Guanacos, Rheas, Armadillos, Southern Elephant Seal, Sea Lions, Commerson's Dolphins, Killer Whale (Orca), Mara (Patagonian hare), Foxes, and Skunks.

Notes:

  • In this part of the world there are few amenities. Let me tempt you...there is no phone, no hot tub, and no washer and dryer. However, there is ample heat and air conditioning. It does get cold here but it rarely gets hot. In town there is a kiosk for telephone/internet, someone is always available to do your laundry, and the house has the hottest shower you can imagine. Everything you can possibly need is within walking distance. The town is tiny, tiny. Our next door neighbor, Vivian, handles all the rentals and the needs of the renters and she is at your beck and call. Vivian provides wireless internet from her home to ours.
