House is beautiful and very well maintained!!! Every window has a view.

  • 5 of 5

The pool water in July was always at the perfect temperature. House layout is perfect for more than one couple or family of four or more. Being able to rent there Quad during our stay was also an added plus. Located in a great spot to get around the Peninsula. Easy check in and check out, we had no problems the entire eight nights we stayed there.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (including two adults, a teenager, and two toddlers) absolutely loved our stay in this home. Xima, the property manager, was so helpful and resourceful--she immediately made us feel at home. And Kelsey, the owner was so helpful when booking. The house is stunning and we loved the property grounds, especially the salt water pool. Very eco-friendly and is seclude, yet close in proximity to Montezuma. My family spent a month in CR in July 2016 and this was one of our favorite experiences. After staying in Santa Teresa for 2 weeks, this area was an ideal place to relax and get away from it all. Also, we preferred Montezuma over some of the other towns. We will definitly return to the area and Kelsey will be the first person I contact to secure a home for us. If you are reading this, you should rent this property--you will be glad that you did.

Una casa realmente DIVINA!!

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos los últimos días de nuestras vacaciones en Costa Rica en CASA DIVINA. Y fue un cierre espectacular para nuestras vacaciones!!!.

Somos una familia de 6 y vivimos en Argentina. Nunca habiamos estado antes en Costa Rica y quedamos sorprendidos por la belleza del lugar y la amabilidad de su gente. Nos encantó.

La casa esta algo alejada del pueblo de Montezuma (3 o 4 KM) pero para nosotros fue lo mejor ya que nos permitió disfrutar de la tranquilidad del lugar. El paisaje y las colinas de Montezuma son especiales y CASA DIVINA ensambla perfectamente con la paz de ese lugar. La casa es super cómoda y todo funcionó perfecto. La cocina esta integramente equipada y todo está cuidado hasta el último detalle.

Los atardeceres sobre las colinas, las cascadas "secretas" y el paseo con "Montezuma Crew" hasta la Isla Tortuga fueron increibles!!

Creo que Casa Divina esta ubicada en uno de los lugares más lindos de la península.

Muchas gracias a Ximena, la property manager, que nos ayudó y nos orientó sobre donde ir y que hacer. Una genia! Y Felicitaciones a Kelsey por tener una casa tan linda.!!

Tune out, Relax and Watch the Geckos

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Divina and it was fantastic, the perfect respite from a harsh northern winter.

Montezuma is a beach town close by that has one of the best restaurants I've ever been to (if you're into amazing food on a beach while the sun sets over the ocean). In the other direction is Cobano, a typical Costa Rican small town we really enjoyed, even though it's not a real tourist destination. A bakery with a toy car out front (that the two year old loved), a produce store, a couple of grocery stores and a glimpse into every day Costa Rican life.

We made arrangements with the same cab driver every day, so by the end of the week we met his family, visited their farm and enjoyed some freshly made tortillas, queso fresco, roasted cashews and newly picked mangoes.

We also hired someone to cook for us, which was a great decision, since we didn't want our friends to cook and clean for us while we chased our two year old. He bought our groceries, prepared a mid-morning snack or smoothie and then later a formal lunch.

At night, we would laze around the many lazing areas and watch the geckos. It was the perfect trip to slow down someone who's been working hard or stressing out. I would definitely go back, and imagine it often now that I am back to the daily grind.

A Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We found love in this perfect paradise! Our group of 5 ventured into the Montezuma area because we have heard nothing but incredible stories about this beautiful place. We chose Casa Divina because it was tucked privately into the hills, but still had easy access to Montezuma and Cobano. Casa Divina was everything we hoped it would be and more, the pictures from the website are a perfect depiction of what the property truly is, for all the photos we took, none could do justice to show how gorgeous and luxurious this property was! The whole house feels big, grand and open. The kitchen was spacious and beautiful and made cooking very enjoyable, it was very well equipped with everything you need, the appliances were nice and the poured concrete countertops were a great touch. The open concept from the kitchen, living room and dining room was great, there are SO many windows and you feel like you are outside when you are in. Our favorite space in the house was definitely the outdoor, covered lounge area; breathtaking views, shaded and comfortable; in the evenings the forest was alive with sounds and it was perfect and relaxing to sit outside and take it all in. We spent many days lounging in the refreshing swimming pool. The bedrooms were very open, spacious and tastefully decorated the beds were comfortable and we all slept well each night. Even though we had air conditioning in the bedrooms, we hardly used it because there was always a nice breeze through the house at night. You certainly don’t have to have a car to get around here, but the terrain is quite hilly and we would highly recommend renting the ATV that is available at the property, it made trips into town a breeze. The people caring for the property were very kind and welcoming, we always felt safe. I could keep writing but I’m running out of characters! Make sure you take in all the beauty of Montezuma, stop in all the shops and talk with locals because you never know what you will find. Even if you can’t speak Spanish, the people in the area appreciate when you try to make an effort. Montezuma is the ultimate beach bum paradise; you will fall in love with it just as we did.

We highly recommend this villa and the Montezuma area! You will fall in LOVE! We returned to cold snowy Canada and I have to say, I feel like a beach bum trapped inside a snow globe. We will be back, much sooner than later.

Car: recommended

Costa Rica is known for it's adventure as well as for it's tranquility. Go zip-lining, take surfing lessons, do yoga, go snorkeling, hike up Montezuma Falls, get a massage, go horseback riding, book a trip to Tortuga Island and more. There are bike and ATV tours, as well as scuba diving and sailing trips. You can visit the Butterfly Gardens, Curu Wildlife Reserve, or Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. There are also many stunning beaches in the area to enjoy.

Montezuma and Santa Teresa are also home to a number of fantastic restaurants! You'll have a lot to choose from when it comes to culinary options.
