My girlfriend and myself are traveling to Costa Rica during the holidays this winter and have been having trouble finding accommodation because of it being the busiest season of the year. Although Jay was already booked during this time period, he took the time to help us find other places in the area and continued to keep in contact until...

Buena Vista Villas was a nice place to stay. There were a few glitches (such as the shower), but the owner, Jay, solved all of them. Jay and his staff--especially Penny--are great hosts who are willing to help any way they can. I rented a car while I was there and I would highly recommend any traveler do the same....

We stayed with Jay for one night and loved the area we were in. It seemed like we were staying in the middle of the wilderness and it was beautiful! Not surprised that Jay won a TA award for best value! We had a little trouble finding the road that lead up the mountain to Buena Vista. If you're driving...

Pura Vida! Wow, this place is absolutely amazing AND SO IS Jay...aka Jota, or Sandy. Went to Nosara at almost the same exact time last year as we did this year and this time we brought the fam, 4 kids. We stayed in the Casa this time and loved every second of it. Clean, excellent condition, breathtaking views of the...

Jay and his property were great. The place is removed enough for a short drive to beach and restaurants, yet we were not always in the car. You can easily get to any of the beaches, especially Guionnes to surf If you want a pool, check out his other property instead. Jay is great with helping with his surf board...

The villas were amazing, clean, fresh, roomy, beautifully designed and well maintained. The grounds around the vilas are nothing less than amazing with spectacular views of both the forests and mountains on one side and the waves of Playa Guillones on the other. The owner Jay was more than hospitable. He is very laid back, knowledgable about the area and...

This was my first trip to the Nosara area. I have visited CR many times but typically favor Santa Teresa. I have also been all around the Tamarindo area. I wanted to try Nosara as I had heard good things. We found Buena Vista Villa through Trip Advisor and Jay was helpful right from the beginning. This is why we...

“Villa is the only one available with windows on 2 sides. It has the option of opening into Villa 1 (if you know the people staying there) so you could get a cross breeze. Originally we tried to rent Villa 1 for our family and Villa 2 for ourselves, but Villa 2 got rented to someone else before we could confirm it! Bummer”
