Montezuma house description

Enjoy relaxing in our spacious, modern, family home located in five acres of tropical gardens complete with pool, additional full outdoor kitchen, and wood-fired pizza oven. The house is minutes from the town of Montezuma, with its beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, artisans, yoga, surfing, and many other activities.

The property has many features which will appeal to an environmentally sensitive traveler: solar powered hot water heater; solar powered pump for the swimming pool; in-ground captivation tanks to store thousands of gallons of collected rainwater to water the garden into the dry season.

Many will also appreciate some of the property's features, designed to overcome some of the challenges of living in this part of the world: battery backup which activates automatically in the event of a power failure, providing the ground floor level with electricity; a well on the property supplies all the water in the home making the visitor immune to any water shortages that might occur at the dry times of year.

You will regularly see a variety of wildlife in the garden which includes: Howler monkeys, White-Faced Capuchin monkeys, anteaters, kinkajous, parrots, Mot-mots and many other birds. The garden has a large variety of fruit trees including: bananas, guayabas, mangos, passion fruit, star fruit and a variety of citrus fruit. Help yourself to the fruit and the fresh eggs from our chickens.

This would be an excellent vacation home for a large family group, couples traveling together or two or more families traveling together. There are 2 main dining areas. The table in the house seats 6-8 and the table in the outdoor kitchen seats 8-10. Both kitchens have full-size, high-end appliances and are very well equipped for cooking and entertaining.

The 2-story home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms (2 of which are ensuite). The fifth bedroom (ensuite) is in a separate cottage by the pool. All bedrooms have air conditioning, screens and ceiling fans. There are 2 kingsize beds, 2 queen size beds and a large bedroom with bunk beds and a pull-out trundle bed. One of the queen size beds also has a full size pull-out trundle bed. The upstairs living room has a large flat screen TV. One of the kingsize bedrooms also has a flat screen TV.

This is our home for part of the year and as such would be a real home away from home for you. The kitchen is very well equipped with much more than you normally find in a rental house and there are lots of books, games, and toys for children of all ages.

There is a caretaker on site as well as a gardener and part-time housekeeper to ensure that your stay is comfortable and memorable.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: After falling in love with Costa Rica and the Southern Nicoya Peninsula we took an opportunity to make a big life change and live here for some of the year. To satisfy our travel bug we are looking to rent our house, so we can hit the road.

                          Why the Owner Chose Montezuma:
                          We chose to live and build our home here because of the climate, the wildlife, the relaxed pace of life and the beauty of the mountains and beaches.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          In addition to the wildlife, the hiking, and the walking on the beach, we enjoy getting to know the great mix of people from all over the world that live near us and the town of Montezuma.
