Arnaud is a great host and incredibly kind person! When initially deciding on whether my family should stay on the Bustel, he was very upfront about the pros and cons, which I appreciated. For example, he was very up front about no air conditioning and that the temperatures co…

I wanted so much to give this place 5 starts. First of all, the experience of sleeping on the bus was awesome! I LOVED being able to wake up in such a unique space. The location is awesome. However, and a very big however, there was an extra fridge on an a BUS! Like what?! It was…

Response from Arnaud:
Thank you for your review Lory. The extra small table fridge was there to be an alternative fridge due to some issues with the main one. It wasn’t much in the way as Lory states here, they never mentioned to me it was in their way either or i woud’ve respond like i always do. Lory and her friend rented the bus stationary in Manuel Antonio and in our communication pre arrival, it was never the plan to move the bus or go to a different location. Also i gave them a great deal on staying as i knew there were a few small issues which i all mentioned to them before arriving. The use of the shower was just unlucky for them as they were available but they didn’t communicate well enough on how to operate them. I did point where they were (only 50 meters walk) and i did not promise anything false. Their expectations and communication were definitely biggest reason of the issue here. Please read reviews here below, they were all happy. Same month, place and set up. Thank you. Kind regards, Arnaud

Such a great concept. The owner has the bus set up very well and stylish. He was very quick to reply to any of our issues/concerns/questions and was super friendly. If you are looking for a unique experience like no other the bustel is definitely what you need!

We stated in Arnaud's bus for 1 week with our 4 children. It was an amazing adventure that I hope they will never forget. The bus was parked in the most ideal location in Manuel Antonio. We loved every minute of it. It was great having such close access to the beach, and stay…

Arnaud was a super attentive and kind host. He came by daily to empty the bathroom/fill up our water. I didn't. The Bustle is an entirely unique experience. I shared the space with two wonderful friends and we had a great time living right on the beach. It's no resort, but it was…

We had an unlucky stay at the Bustel. The electrical system had been damaged by previous guests and Arnaud had setup a generator to power the fans, lights, etc. Unfortunately, the generator broke down around midnight and without the fans going bugs got in and made our stay unlive…
