  • Best balcony view around, fast comp. internet, reasonably priced, clean

    "My husband and I just got back from a wonderful 1-week stay at this villa. Really, we couldn't have asked for anything more - from the beautiful view right from your super sized balcony, to the nice pool, to the complimentary wifi and cold AC - we were more than pleased with everything. You can tell that the owner takes good care of this property. It is very well-kept and some of the things in it you won't find at any other rental for this price. It is not a large condo, but it is much larger than your typical hotel room and, more importantly, it has all of the essentials for 2 people, including a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, LCD TV with satellite connection, a digital safe in the closet, plenty of hangers for your closet, hair dryer in the bathroom. The linen, pillows and mattress were newer, which was very nice to have. We travel quite often and know what's out there, so believe me this is a super deal for what you get. Personally, I loved the tropical vegetation of the rainforest right outside your balcony. We also liked the amazing ocean views also right from your own balcony. If you look out into the rainforest, you will see monkeys, specially in the afternoon hours. We saw a bunch of white-face monkeys as well as titi monkeys. We didn't rent a car so ended up taking $3 taxi ride to Quepos - very easy and there are lots of them around. There is also a bus stop - going in both directions-right out-front. It goes by every 30 minutes and every 15 minutes during lunch hours. It is centrally located so you don't need a car. You can walk pretty much everywhere. In the afternoons, we walked to the local super market, which was right next door and we bought fresh vegetables and fish. The super market is small but you can find pretty much anything you can think of. That was very nice, indeed. If you are booking a tour, you have many to choose from, all of which can be planned for once you check-in at the on-site rental office. All tours will get picked up and dropped off right outside your condo. The beach was a pleasant 20 minute walk. If you don't like to walk, you can pick up the bus right outside the property and you'll be at the beach and the Manuel Antonio National Park in less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is interested in the conveniences of staying in a condo versus a hotel, at a great reasonable rate, with a million dollar view, and an owner who really makes sure you have a pleasant stay."

  • Perfection

    "Five of us just returned from a week at Villa Montemeru. We couldn't have been happier with the house, which is even more beautiful than the pictures and description suggested. The layout and decor are thoughtful and stylish, the indoor/outdoor kitchen and living room are gorgeous, the beds are comfortable, and the views of the ocean, jungle, and sunsets to die for. Mariella was an excellent host, welcoming but discreet, and gave us excellent suggestions for local beaches, food shopping, and restaurants. Although we ate out a few times in Santa Teresa and Malpais, we really preferred long, relaxed evenings in the house, with Ray and Marlie, the two adorable ridgebacks. The region is beautiful, though the roads are sometimes rough and dusty. The house is situated high above the road and is therefore secluded and quiet, except for the wonderful noises of the jungle. One word of caution - the jungle and its wildlife are all around and very present, and if that doesn't interest you, this might not be the best area to stay in. All in all, the location, the house, and the welcome make Villa Montemeru paradise. I hope we'll be back soon."

  • A Completely Relaxing Couple of Weeks

    "As others here and in travel guides have indicated, Sierpe is a quiet town at the edge of a patchwork of palm plantations: the jumping off point for river tours, fishing and junkets to Drake’s Bay. Based largely on the comments from fellow reviewers, we had the pleasure of booking 2 weeks through our hosts, Morton and Mary Ann. The house lies several hundred metres from the Sierpe town square, a market and not far from a small row of hotels, tour operator offices and family-style restaurants serving typical tico fare. Morton undertook major renovations a number of years ago and keeps it in good shape. The floor plan is open with ample kitchen, dining, living room, and office that are all contiguous. It easily accommodated 5 of us with a nice balance of social space and room for privacy. Morton has also installed air conditioning. This was definitely a luxury and welcome respite from the heat and humidity. We had fine weather and spent most of our time lounging, reading and hanging out on the covered patio: retreating into the cool of the house after dark when the mosquitos came out. The patio overlooks the Sierpe river is a great place to watch birds, iguanas and other wildlife including crocodiles drifting in the current downstream. Morton is a terrific and gracious host. He arrived right after New Year’s, staying in his other house across town (2 minutes away) and would pop round for a beer and a chat or to see if we needed anything. Sonya, a neighbour who helps out with the house, is also a delight. She stopped by from time to time to check in and surprised us by sharing some of her homemade desserts. Sonya’s son runs river cruises and fishing trips and we enjoyed an evening wildlife outing on the water with him. In all, Sierpe may not have much going on compared to the hustle and bustle and party scene in Jaco. However, staying at Morton’s house was the perfect choice for us: a spacious house, a warm and congenial community, and laid back. There were plenty of opportunities to traipse about the area, head up the coast or out to Corcovado, Drake’s Bay, the mangrove swamps along the river, or to chill out on the patio and do nothing at all. Just what we were looking for!"
