Set above Playa Montezuma in a lush, private tropical garden with spectacular ocean views and gentle sea breezes, this is a quiet haven for relaxation and rejuvenation. Private self-contained Casita with king bed, beautiful bathroom, kitchenette, shared infinity edge pool and yoga pavilion.
Monkeys, pizotes and toucans are regular visitors! The beach, the famous Montezuma waterfall and excellent restaurants are close by.
The Casita was built in 2014 to accommodate visiting family, friends and coaching clients. It is cozy, quiet and luxurious.
Imagine this - arriving at the property you come to a plateau of tropical plants. You will walk past the main house, the ocean to your left. Past the pool and yoga deck, you will come to a path that leads to the Casita. There you will see papaya trees, helaconias and ginger plants, flowering, colorful bushes and palm trees. The private outdoor patio with its hammocks gives way to amazing expansive views of the tropical foliage below and the ocean.
The undercover patio offers al fresco dining at a beautiful handmade table and chairs from local wood, and a fully equipped kitchenette. Wide sliding doors open the Casita bedroom with its large, comfy king bed, its small inbuilt desk, and at the far end the bathroom.
The property comprises of 2 acres with a main house, an infinity edge swimming pool, yoga pavilion, garage with guest room and private bath, nursery and the Casita. The garden has an abundance of tropical foliage, and the Casita is very private.
Guests may share the pool and yoga pavilion with the owner for quiet enjoyment between 10am-5pm. The entire property is fenced, and a lockable gate a the bottom of the driveway offers added security. The structures are not visible from the road, hence very private and safe.
For most of the year, I live in the main house together with my doghter Coco. Coming to Costa Rica on and off for many years, I am available to answer questions, suggest day adventures or destinations, recommend restaurants, and above all do everything I can to make sure that my guests are happy and relaxed!
Occasionally there is a small gentle yoga class on my yoga pavilion, or an aqua fitness group, both of which my guests are always invited to join.
The Casita is located in Delicias, on a cliff above the small bohemian beach town of Montezuma. The immediate neighborhood offers various adventures - the canopy tour, Montezuma waterfall, the butterfly farm, and an excellent restaurant, are all within easy walking distance. The beach is just down the hill, and the town is about 1km from the property.
* Other Things to Note
Wifi is available in the Casita. The download speed allows sometimes slow but sufficient Internet access to stay in touch. Watching movies can be a challenge, though.
My doghter Coco is very chilled-out, friendly and trained. She is free to roam the property, and will probably come by for a visit or two during your stay to make sure all is well with you and to give and receive some love.
*** Answers to some FAQs:
LOCATION: You would fly into the Costa Rican international airport in either San Jose or Liberia. From there you have various options to get to Montezuma: from San Jose, a shuttle service costs approx $50 per person and takes approx 5.5 hours; for example with Interbus Online or Zuma Tours. A domestic flight to Tambor with Nature Air or Sansa (20 minutes) followed by 35-minute taxi ride to Montezuma. Or, a rental car either from San Jose airport (for example with Enterprise), or from Tambor (with Budget).
From Liberia the transfer is shorter but the dirt roads can be quite challenging (adventurous) for self-drivers, especially after dark.
