The four modest rental houses at Agua Vista are a small, family run business, located in the lush hills above Montezuma, at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
We offer stunning views, convenient access to town, and abundant wildlife. Each house, unique, tastefully designed and nestled into the jungle, is clean and comfortable and comes fully equipped.
Agua Vista provides the perfect combination of seclusion and accessibility for those searching for a simple, unique, and authentic experience.
With a laid back rustic feel, Casa Trogon sits within the jungle overlooking ocean views. Wake to the sounds of the jungle and the ocean out your window. Relax on the spacious tiled porch, swing on the hammock and enjoy the views and wildlife around you. Take a refreshing dip in your private plunge pool. Luxuriate in your unique rock wall enclosed indoor/outdoor shower - the best of both. Prepare delicious meals in your fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances. Named for the black and orange birds which nest around here, a great house for families!

About Khalida Lockheed & Alexander Jimenez
We are a Tico-Gringa couple living on the property who met here in 1993 and have two little monkeys of our own. He hails from neighboring Cóbano and she comes all the way from New Jersey, USA. After living in The Big Apple for 9 years, we decided to move back to the 'ol hometown in 2006 so the kids could swap jungle gyms for the jungle, and we happily left computer maintenance and children's animated television behind! Because of our bicultural heritage and our deep roots in the local community, we are able to provide you with an authentic Costa Rican experience that also respects the unique concerns of tourists from abroad.

Why Khalida Lockheed & Alexander Jimenez chose Montezuma
The beautiful views of the ocean and the mainland beyond, the lush jungle and abundant wildlife, the unique location bordering the Montezuma River, and the proximity to Montezuma village yet secluded feeling was what attracted us to this spot. It is one of only a few properties in this area that have these sought after features.
What makes this House unique
This is one of a very few properties in Montezuma with private access to the world famous Montezuma River and Waterfalls. We border 800 meters of the river in a secluded spot with many private waterfalls and dipping pools. The river also ensures a very vibrant and healthy community of wildlife. Most guests say that they have seen more wildlife here than anywhere else they have traveled in Costa Rica!

To nice to put in words
Just great! U need to experience for yourselves. Comfortable setting with nice little pool to cool off, amazing animals and quiet
We felt very welcome at Casa Trogon by Alex and Khalida. I wish we would have had more than 3 nights there. The pools were great and what a view! There were many birds on the property as well as howler monkeys, coati and agouti. There is no dryer in the unit, but when Alex saw how much laundry I planned to do, he hung an extra clothesline out for me. The washer did leak water, but I am certain the owners will get that fixed as soon as possible. We did hike to the upper falls from the property, which was quite a hike and not very appreciated by my daughters. Even though I consider us to be pretty athletic and agile, both my 10 year old and I had pretty significant falls on the slippery rocks, so be careful. We drive over to Santa Teresa for 1 day and ate at the Bakery there, which I highly recommend.
Perfect secluded rainforest getaway
Casa Trogon was beautiful! It's so relaxing... quiet, private, set up in the forest, and there's a lovely far-view of the ocean from the porch. The little pool is a great place to lounge in the heat of the afternoon. It's a 5 min drive to Montezuma beach, or you can hike the back way through the property to Montezuma Falls (which you should definitely do!) The property is just gorgeous, and the owners are lovely people. The house is well appointed, with wifi, daily maid service, ceiling fans in both bedrooms, a lovely outdoor shower, washing machine, plus all the kitchen conveniences. If there's anything to improve, it would be installing fans in the kitchen and the patio - it gets hot during dinner, and it's hard to eat outside in the evening due to the mosquitoes. But it's worth it - the wildlife is abundant! Visitors included squirrel monkeys, white faced coati, dozens of birds and butterflies, and of course we heard howler monkeys a few nights. We could have stayed forever, and we will definitely be back to this lovely home!!
The property is amazingly beautiful and the owners could not be better people. Our best days were doing activities recommended by the host. Our children did not want to leave! Casa trogon has two bedrooms and one bath with daily maid service. We cooked several full meals in our kitchen and played lazily on the porch in the pool and in the hammock. The owner has amazing koi ponds and even let our children hand feed them one afternoon. We saw a huge variety of birds, butterflies, and monkeys even travelled through one early afternoon. We could not have asked for a better experience!
