We can‘t decide what we liked more. The beautiful and tidy posada, the romantic sea view or Criss and Hans as lovely and helpful hosts. This Place is the best accomodation on Providencia. It is fitted with everything you need to spend perfect vacation. The sea is 3 Minutes walking distance, There is a supermarket located in Front of the house and Criss is so nice that she even prepares her favourit Island Pizza for you. Thank you so much Hans and Criss! Valentin and Adrienne will never forget cuba libre nights with you!
A great place to stay on like a local on the southwest side of the island. Has a huge porch with a commanding view of the sea at sunset. The porch also has a nice kitchen, which is great to have for a DIY meal, or just keeping afternoon beers and snacks on hand. Just a 2 minute walk to the start of the beach, 3 minute walk to the Sirius Dive Center. The place next door rents scooters for a reasonable price, and the rental is above a grocery store that can meet most if not all of your needs. The bedroom is cozy, but if you just want a bed with air conditioning, it's perfect.
But one of the really great features of Posada Buena Vista is the owner. Hans and his wife Criss are superb hosts, and really thought through what we needed as guests. He made sure bottled water is available for those without a Colombian stomach. He is one of the few (or maybe only?) Posadas to offer wifi. He delivered fresh towels every other day, and offered his washing machine if we needed it. On top of all that, he rents it at an extremely reasonable rate, to make it affordable for more people to experience Providencia.
If ever we return to the blue waters of Providencia, we know where we're staying!
The location is perfect being just a short stroll from the amazing beach of South West bay, but we found that we loved our place so much that we spent a lot of our time just using the big terrace and the fantastic kitchen.
Hans is doing a wonderful job as a host, giving us a warm welcome and accomodating our every need. He says he loves his job and to make his guests happy, and it shows. The place is extremly clean, everything is working perfectly, and the place is very well made out. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer!
The little marked downstairs is also an added bonus, and everyone in the neighbourhood is very friendly. Just next door you can rent a motorbike and two minute away there is a diveshop - what more do you need? Would highly recommend to anyone. Providencia is a magical place!
This vacation rental is all it is said to be and much more... 13 days in Paradise with the best host on the island and a great family. There really is a mini mart right downstairs , so what ever you need is just a walk down the stairs. The view from the balcony is the best on the island. The best beach is just a small walk down the road. Any questions we had or request ,Hans would help us take care of it or tell us what to do... Thanks, Hans and Criss for the best vacation ever..... Dennis and Jackie :)

Spent 5nights at posada Buena vista last week and it was everything and more. Hans is amazing! place exceeded our needs. You have a large terrace to yourself with open kitchen and dining/ hang out area. Then you have a large size room with bathroom attached with air con and cool shower with good water pressure. He and his wife own a market underneath the building which is convinent if you plan to cook. You should as most food in the restaurants on the island is the same. Fried meat, fish, rice and small salad (cucumber, tomatoes). The kitchen is well stocked with actual stove, large refrigerator, coffee maker, pots and pan. As others mentioned is closed to south west beach which I think is 2nd best beach next to manzanillo. Posada is in the residential area and lucky for you/us we got to know Hans in laws and extended family who were friendly and helpful. We also rented a scooter (which you'll need) from his uncle who live next door. Overall the we enjoyed our stay at posada Buena vista and look forward to going back. Thank you Hans and family for your hospitality.
