About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)
This is the sort of experience that you can expect every day at the tropical paradise called La Colina de Carolina. Situated atop a steep bluff, it has a great vista of the Montezuma area; an elevated, stunningly majestic view of the sea. Beautifully constructed of pressure treated pine, every effort has been made to minimize construction impact on the surroundings.
La Colina de Carolina is only a 10-15 minute walk to Montezuma, making beaches, shopping, restaurants, dancing and even a game of pool easily accessible. However it is far enough removed from the town to provide escape from the late night revelry of the Montezuma tourist scene if you would rather relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of a tropical night under the stars. A private entrance together with its remote location and on-site caretaker provide you and your family or guests with total security. A car is not necessary to stay at La Colina de carolina.
Upon arrival you will find a friendly property manager and caretaker waiting to show you around the property, demonstrate how to use the security devices such as the steel shutter doors and answer any questions that you may have. To get your first full day off to a great start, we are happy to make sure that the kitchen has coffee and milk waiting for you. We also offer free assistance with the procurement of any unusual products and services plus booking or arranging any activities or outings that you might wish to take part in.
The house is new and has a full kitchen, large living area and a broad deck that wraps around two sides of the house and offers an excellent view of the sea. The elevated, sea-side location means constant breezes off of the water while our high ceilings, fans and huge windows and double doors all combine to keep the days cooler. Hand made wooden furniture, hammocks, optional meal and beverage services complete the picture of comfortable, tropical relaxation.
As mentioned we are happy to assist you in booking activities including:
Excursions to the Montezuma Cascades, Canopy and Cloud Forest tours with zip lines, day trips to Isla de Tortuga, (Turtle Island,) for snorkeling, volleyball and picnicking, golfing, surf lessons, shore and/or deep sea fishing, sea kayaking, horseback rides on the beach and more.
House keeping is included for stays of 2 weeks or longer. We also offer an array of inexpensive services such as daily house keeping and laundry for those wishing to combine the jungle experience with more pampered living.
These services as well as any activities booked on your behalf must be paid when booked. Contact us for a quote on a complete vacation.
La Colina de Carolina is the perfect blend of comfort and tropical seclusion whether you want to disappear for a few days into lovely views, tropical bird songs and visits from the local troops of monkeys, travel throughout the area on adventurous daytrips, spend some hot nights with the fire spinners and salsa dancers in Montezuma, relax and enjoy some pampered comfort, or a little bit of all of them. In the five years since it has been available to the public for rent, there has not been a single renter who hasn’t said that they’d return in a heartbeat.
Thank you for your interest, we look forward to hosting you.

About the owner: I am an independent person with a love of adventure; always active, always looking for a better idea in life. My favorite quote: 'If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.' After a corporate life for many years, now I have a home in Costa Rica. And one day, I will move from Atlanta and live in Costa Rica. Until then, I visit La Colina and rent the house out to help with expenses. I have changed careers. I am a teacher now. I teach English language and culture to non-native speakers. I could not do what I do without the help of my fine caretaker and property manager. And so it is!
Why the Owner Chose Montezuma Beach, Costa Rica:
When I first came to Montezuma on vacation several years ago, I fell in love with the area as so many people do. I decided that I was going to move there, bought a beautiful piece of hill top property with a commanding view of the water five years ago and started construction. I had a house designed and built that would have a minimal impact on the property and blend in with the surrounding nature, which is one of the aspects of the house most commented upon by guests. If you enjoy tranquility, birds, butterflies and other wildlife, time in a hammock and rustic yet comfortable surroundings with all of the modern amenities, then this house is for you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view of the sea and the constant breeze while sitting on my back porch is my favorite thing about this property.
