Casa Frangipani - Ocean View Villa in Montezuma, Costa Rica

Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

Villas, 1 or 2 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Casa Frangipani sits on a hilltop facing the Pacific Ocean and a lush tropical forest. The property consist of four villas designed to maximize the beauty of the property while providing the privacy to enjoy the nature that surrounds it. The pool is located in the garden, perched above the cascading tropical landscape overlooking the forest and the ocean beyond.

Each villa is designed to provide the maximum privacy for the guests. We have created a space to relax, rejuvenate, unwind and entertain. Our villa accommodates four guests in a spacious area that provides one private bedroom which features a garden shower. From the private bedroom one can access the terrace designed to maximize ocean and forest views. The terrace then leads the way into the living area that could convert into a private bedroom for two additional guests. The kitchen is equipped for your convenience. A private indoor bathroom and shower is adjacent to the main bedroom.


Just 50 years ago, Montezuma was a little port town filled with fruits and vegetables from the rich and fertile soil surrounding this charming village. Montezuma's older residents still talk today of the parades of ox carts with local produce that used to line up every day at the boat docks to ship goods to Puntarenas. Begin to imagine then, a small, clean, unspoiled and peaceful port town surrounded by a lush and natural habitat.

Around the middle of the 1970's, a road was built that connected Paquera with Cobano and Montezuma ceased to be a shipping port and instead transformed itself into a magical little fishing village. Hardly 30 years ago, Montezuma was an enchanting fishing corner nestled at the feet of two enormous cliffs from where six rivers twisted and turned creating creeks, pools, and cascading waterfalls. The rivers flowed through thick and leafy forests that sheltered countless raccoons, roaming bears, squirrels and deer just to name a few. Imagine all of this...

One word, AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful mini-villa a few minutes outside of Montezuma. Caretaker Alex was very friendly and helpful and has a contagious smile, even made us dinner one fun night for are 10 year anniversary.

The kitchen is well-appointed with everything necessary provided. The king-size bed is quite comfortable, and the shower is excellent.

Getting to the villa the first time requires a bit of faith (as does getting most anywhere), but once you arrive you'll appreciate the serenity as well as the stunning view from the mountainside looking out to the ocean.

We found this to be an ideal location for exploring and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a visit Costa Rica. When we return, we'll gladly stay here again

Casa Frangipani Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa Frangipini and Montezuma stole our hearts! My Family of 3 went to Montezuma and became our favorite of our trip, and we owe a great deal of our dreamlike experience to Casa Frangipini!

Kenny and Alex were the most helpful and wonderful hosts you could ever ask for! They made sure we checked the ferry time, and when we responded about a casual time getting to the ferry, they were amazing at letting us know the exact time we should leave the current town we were in to reach the ferry. *note: ferries to do not run often, if you miss one you will wait for a couple of hours*

The driveway and streets around Montezuma are not made for low cars, get a SUV like Car if you want to get around!

Alex greeted us when we arrived, helped us with our luggage and we followed him to sign papers. I thought he had brought us into a sample villa or office because the villa we were in seemed much larger than what I thought we booked. Alex gave us the keys and said we were in our villa!

WOW is all I have to say. My expectations were beyond exceeded! The villa was beautiful, comfortable and the view we had of the ocean and jungle were breathtaking!

The pool was warm and had a gorgeous view too. Kenny the owner was hanging out and greeted us when we went for a swim. My Family felt so comfortable and happy.

The Montezuma town and beach are a few minutes drive away, you can walk or hike but kip hydrated!

Montezuma and the beach were incredible too! Such an amazing experience!

Best Vacation ever!!!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Casa Frangipani is in a beautiful location overlooking the ocean. The villa is very clean and comfortable. A very romantic setting--even though there are 4 villas on property it felt very private. The outdoor shower was an added bonus! Also, we greatly appreciated the laundry service provided, as we had spent several days in the rainy jungle in the south. It is a short drive into town, where there are several very good restaurants, many good beaches, and walks to waterfalls. There is a lot to do in and around Montezuma, but we were looking for a quiet place to relax for a couple days, and this was the perfect spot.

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

A beautifull house on a mountaintop, just outside of Montezuma with the birds and monkey. We had a great time with wife and kid (4yo). Great pool, nice balcony with a sea and forest view and a few trails to the waterfalls.

The property is very well maintained and managed.

I would recommend it to anybody

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a wonderful accommodation in Montezuma Costa Rica, while browsing on the VRBO web site. I was looking for a quiet and secluded location, but not too far from some shopping and restaurants.

Well, I found it and more, Casa frangipani. Don’t let the name fool you (BTW It’s a flower Frangipani) Casa Frangipani has a beautiful flora landscape and is well maintained. The pool area is nice with a gorgeous view of the ocean and surrounding area. The villas are very nice the one we stayed in was a one bedroom with a large kitchen and a small living room. The bedroom was huge with French doors that led out to an oversized deck. Most mornings were spent watching the wildlife and relaxing on the deck.

I would recommend Casa Frangipani to families, couples, singles and friends. If you stay at Casa Frangipani I am sure you will return and enjoy the villa as much as we did.
