Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome house in the middle of the jungle. We saw many wild animals. It is beautifully decorated. Do not hesitate to rent it. There is a very helpful concierge living on the premises. We stayed there with 4 adults, a 4year old and a baby. We did miss a couple of things, e.g. we were stuck in a storm for 36h and did not have electricity. There was no generator and we could not cook. There were just a few candles. So no light and food. A generator or camping gas cooker would be an asset. Kitchen tools such as plated, glasses, knifes, etc were pretty scarce for us and our company. So we would advise to foresee more of this as well.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary. The views and house are incredible, the gardner was so friendly and kind, and the owners were great. It was our own private paradise.

AMAZING house and will be back!

  • 5 of 5

All of the great reviews about the house are true and the pictures on the site do not do it justice. The house is fantastic and across the road from Montezuma Falls as well as the Anamaya resort that offers yoga/massage which was a nice treat. The town itself is a couple of minutes away and we loved visiting the different restaurants – our favorite was Cocolores where the fresh fish and relaxed ambiance was beyond compare. We initially planned to stay a few days but between the house and town of Montezuma we extended our stay. We even volunteered at the Montezuma beach Turtle Hatchery.

Lora, the manager was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Our kids, aged 6, 8 and 14 LOVED the layout of the house and the pool. We were daily visited by Howler monkeys, hummingbirds and coatis.

There is plenty to do in Montezuma (Zuma tours was fantastic + Young Vision surf school) and the fact that we had such an amazing location made it even more memorable. We will be back.

Breathtaking. Most be the best place in all of Montezuma. So much to enjoy. The gardens and the view are amazing. Truly paradise. The house is relaxing and spacious. I love the inside-outside living. Even the bedrooms and baths are large. I love the pool just a few steps away. The reason I choose to vacation in Montezuma was the feeling of being chose to nature and this place has it all. The jungle with the monkeys and birds was like living in harmony with nature. The location is just the right distance away from town and was very safe with the security of a gate and the caretaker is close by. And not to forget the night gazing at the stars and the night sounds of the jungle. Great place to do yoga. Couldn't ask for more.

Pura vida!

  • 5 of 5

We were wowed as we drove through the gate.... what a lovely property! Where to start. My dad plunked himself in one of the loungers in the rancho as soon as we got there, and stayed put for 4 hours. View is incredible! Ocean, jungle, and the lovely house. And there are several equally wonderful places to park yourself with a good book and/or binoculars. The covered veranda is 20 ft wide, wrapping three sides of the house -- a pair of comfy leather rocking chairs on one side looking out over the garden and ocean; a hammock over the canopy of a stream valley (neat trail to follow down to do some exploring there); and a super comfy couch, that we all probably dozed off on at one point, looking out over the pool and the ocean. There is also a beautiful dining table under the veranda (we exchanged the tree stump seats for the formal dining chairs in the kitchen). The stereo speakers are set up to outside, so you can dance on the lovely stone pool deck... and a full assortment of lights to provide whatever ambiance you are looking for. The grounds were lovely -- grassed areas, a well-tended garden, and the pool and hot tub (ahhh!), all surrounded by jungle. We saw parrots, toucan and numerous other birds that my partner eagerly looked up, and we were all enamoured with the resident iguana, and of course, the monkeys! Moving inside, the doors are incredible... maybe 20ft wide again, opening fully on two sides to make the living area/kitchen open air as well. The bedrooms were huge, with very comfortable beds and bedding. The bathrooms are also incredible -- open air, full of plants, but completely private - hard to describe, but lovely. It was reassuring to have Rigo and his family on the premises -- especially coming home at night (even though the area seems very safe). He was unassuming, but ready to help if needed. Finally, Lora and Boyan were so wonderful to deal with and went way out of their way for us. When we asked if a crib was available, they said yes without hesitation. Little did we realize that they needed to go out and buy one, plus bedding and even a pillow! They also let us park at their hotel when we went into town (Montezuma can be a little crowded) and use the internet there. All in all a super place -- I couldn't help but feel very lucky, and a bit spoiled to have had our time there. Its a luxurious place, but felt like home at the same time. A girl can dream...

Montezuma,Santa Teresa,Malpais
Car: recommended

The serenity and inspiring setting makes Villa Prana an ideal place to practise yoga or just relax. You will enjoy a stunning 360 degree ocean and jungle view and full privacy and tranquility. Being next to the jungle and river will provide for the chance to enjoy the amazingly beautiful wildlife in Costa Rica - bird watching, monkey observation.

We are also steps away from the Montezuma Waterfall and canopy tours.

The villa is 20 minutes by car to Santa Teresa, great place for surfing.

Our house managers have extensive knowledge of the area and all the great things to see and do and will be very happy to answer any questions you have about travel arrangements, the area , and activities. A house safe and an onsite caretaker adds to your vacation security.
