About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps Up To 8 Guests. Perfect Vacation Rental In Montezuma

From the beach you will find the Montezuma Firefly Beach Houses property sign steps from the beautiful ocean, that's where your retreat begins. This beachfront house is perfect for families. On the first floor there is a fully equipped kitchen for making meals at home. There's a picnic table on the front porch to enjoy meals in the fresh ocean air. The kitchen has a door to the laundry room and a quaint outside area with a cement table where you can enjoy the tropical garden. There's a dining room and a living room which has a t.v. and dvd player. There's also a bedroom and a bathroom on the bottom floor. There is a beautiful bathroom on the 2nd floor with open air window overlooking the ocean and the rain forest. The spiral staircase is leading to the second story which has three bedrooms. The master bedroom is large with high ceilings and a gorgeous view of the ocean. It's a perfect spot for your yoga practice! The other two bedrooms have peaceful views of the lush rainforest.

The front yard offers a large, tree covered area suitable for frisbee or kicking a soccer ball at the heat of the day. There are hammocks and comfortable seating areas to relax and enjoy the views whether it's the waves, the wildlife or the surfers. This property is well loved for the very reasons of having privacy in nature, the very close proximity to the beach and only a 10 minute walk to all the amenities in the fun town of Montezuma.

Next to the house is a cabin and a cottage which is also available to rent. All three accommodations afford the ability to be where the rainforest meets the ocean, to view beautiful critters, enjoy beach activities, relax with family and friends, get lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. It's a perfect place to venture from whether you're off to hike, surf, snorkel, horseback ride, learn spanish or do yoga.

Cute beach house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights and after we left we regretted not booking it for a longer period of time. The home shares a common property with two other vacation rentals that include several hammocks and a ping pong table, along with amazing views and sounds of the ocean. Staying here does require a short walk up the beach as the road does not go to the property itself. There are two stories, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. My husband and I ended up staying in the one downstairs bedroom as it was cooler downstairs compared to upstairs (there is no air conditioning). I will say if you are looking for a home with all the modern conveniences and comforts of home this may not be an ideal place for you. Aside from lack of air conditioning the "hot" water in the shower never got above a little bit warm. But, if you appreciate a beautiful setting with a near-private beach and want to be lulled to sleep at night by the sound of the ocean then you should definitely stay here. There is a full bookshelf in the living room and ample outdoor seating- we spent the majority of the time reading, lounging, and walking up and down the beach. Really lovely spot and we would not hesitate to be back someday.

Lovely beach-house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 weeks on the Pacific coast. A lovely house to stay in. We were 6 adults + 2 small ones, and had a great time. We enjoy walking and staying outdoors, and had plenty of time to do so. we walked along the beaches - Playa Grande and the small river-swimming-pool which the children loved. However, we were so sad to see all the plastic pollution on the beaches. We tried to clean up the plastic bits, but the next tide brought lots of plastic on to the beaches.

The turtle hatchery next to house was really fun. We went there several afternoons to watch the small turtles heading for the ocean.

Jairo and Mercedes were nice, fortunately our son speaks spanish, so he could speak with them.

We were pleased with the big kitchen, as we stayed at home doing our own cooking often.

November / december is a nice time to go there, not to hot, but the humidity is quite high.

We could not have stayed a better place.

Everything in this listing was true - great house, clean, steps from beach, all the amenities, secure, and truly a beach paradise. The house and location was so great, we just ended up hanging out there and making the occasional side trip (10 min walk on beach) to town for food or restaurant. Fairly good swimming beach was great for my 9 and 12 year old out front once I set rules on how far they could go out - beach in front was a bit rocky for surfing unless you knew where to go. Otherwise, 20 minute walk through 2 refuges down beach there was a fantastic beach good for light surfing and boogie boarding. 10 minutes away was a river with pools and water falls flowing into sea, and 5 minutes away there was a nice resort for cocktails and massage if so inclined.

House wasclean and had all the amenities. 6 fans for hot days, but it was comfortable in shade on property in Feb. Property was great, right up against forest in back, far enough back to be private, and chock full of wildlife- howler and capuchin monkeys daily, iguanas, and bird-o-rama. Crashing surf put us to sleep at night. The other 2 houses on property are great too, and private enuff that it wasn't a problem to share the laundry, the hammocks or the ping pong table. Jerry the caretaker was great, he transported our luggage from/to town, and made us souvenirs from bamboo and was Super friendly and helpful - was hard to say goodbye.

Car not needed- 10 min walk to town. Good for kids or teens - 2 families of 4 or one large family who wants more space; or 4 couples. All I can say is when we come to CR again, we'll have a hard time beating this place.
