Hello! This is Mike and along with my wife Linda, daughter Jenny and son-in-law Tyler, we are the proud new owners of Chez Mu. We visited Chez Mu at the end of May 2017 and completely fell in love with this magical property in Montezuma and had to buy it. We completed the transaction in July with the former owners Eric, David & Luis, who had owned Chez Mu since 2006. They put their heart and soul into making Chez Mu a dream escape and we plan on continuing that vision. We welcome our new friends via VRBO to come share it with us!
Mike purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Mike chose Montezuma
Montezuma is unique among beach destinations in Guanacaste and Nicoya. For years, this remote village and its surrounding beaches, forests and waterfalls have enjoyed near-legendary status among backpackers, UFO seekers, hippie expatriates, and European budget travelers. Although it maintains its alternative vibe, Montezuma has emerged as a great destination for all manner of travelers looking for a beach retreat surrounded by some stunning scenery. An Italian influence can be felt in the outstanding restaurants in the area. Active pursuits abound, from hiking in the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve to horseback riding to a beach-side waterfall. The house itself is also walking distance to a Canopy (zip-line) Tour and a Butterfly Farm. As ever, it's the natural beauty, miles of almost abandoned beaches, rich wildlife, and jungle waterfalls that first made Montezuma famous, and they continue to make this one of the favorite beach towns in Costa Rica.
What makes this Villa unique
Jungle and ocean views in 360 degrees. Just minutes away from Montezuma and all the unspoiled beaches down towards Cabuya and Malpais/Santa Teresa.

BEST VACATION EVER BY FAR!
Our stay was like a dream! The house was beautiful, luxurious, and clean! It had everything we needed and the few things we did find ourself in need of, Tyler, the property manager, handled quickly and thoroughly! He was extremely helpful and knowlegeable about the house and everything in the area!! This was a perfect place for our family of five to spend time together for 7 days! Would definitely come back again and stay!
Chez mu is absolutely beautiful ! It is a beautiful house and owner is very attentive . You will enjoy your stay here!
thank you so much Caryn! We enjoyed attending to your family.
Best Vacation Rental Ever!
We have stayed in a lot of Vacation Rentals, but this is by far the most impressive. The photos don't do it justice. The villa is spread over 3 floors and each floor has a beautiful outdoor veranda for viewing the surrounding jungle and ocean. We saw a great variety of birds, iguanas and a howler monkey even made a visit to the property while we were there. The host and property manager were extremely responsive and helpful; suggesting the best places to go in the area and the best route to get there. Access to the Montezuma water falls is a short walk away as well as a really good bakery and one of our favorite restaurants in the area, Clandestina. We will definitely be back to this beautiful spot on the planet!
Travis Thanks for the great review! Happy you enjoyed Chez Mu Villa so much!
Waking up to jungle sounds, breathtaking vistas, taking dips in the infinity pool and feeling one with nature and at the same time having a luxurious place to call home. That is Chez MU.
All the raving reviews did not prepare me for this experience. Although my family did all the activities that Montezuma had to offer and loved them, we could have easily just stayed at Chez Mu without ever leaving.
And the people couldn't have been nicer! Mike was always available to help with any questions or concerns. My daughter-in-law had a rash, and the caretaker took care of her as if she was family. Kris, the property manager, was also great. The house is on a steep hill and remote, so we were remiss in not renting a vehicle, But, Kris came to our rescue and gave us a contact number to call whenever we needed a taxi -which was mainly for restaurants. Other than that, Zuma tours gave us door to door service for all of their tours.
The people in Montezuma seem to be one, large, loving family and go all out for tourists. 5 stars is not enough for this lifetime experience in our luxurious jungle home.
Deborah, love to host your family again! Come back again and just hangout at the Villa!
One of the highlights of our Cost Rica trip!
The worst thing about Chez Mu for us was that it was only available for two nights. We decided to stay there anyway and were really glad that we did because our stay there turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip - and it was a great trip!. This is a really cool and beautiful property. We are a family of four and it was wonderful for us, but could also easily handle many more people in the 5 bedrooms. The views from the upper suite and the deck were amazing. We loved how all the doors fully open so the whole place feels like it's outdoors when you open them. The place is very well equipped and both Mike and Kris were friendly and helpful, making sure we were comfortable and made great suggestions for food and activities. I'd recommend a 4WD for Montezuma in general, not just chez mu. If you're considering going to Montezuma, I would definitely recommend Chez Mu. If you stay there, the bakery just below the bottom of the driveway is great for breakfast and delicious sweets. Also, the SunTours canopy tour ziplining, right down the road was amazing.
Jon - Glad you enjoyed Costa Rica and our Villa! We look forward to hosting you again for more than 2 nights! LOL.
Loved this villa!
Look no further if you are going to Montezuma. Incredible view of the Pacific from the deck, beautiful pool, outdoor dining, and great support from the house manager Rachel and Zenon and his wife who live down the hill on the property. Every bedroom has its own bathroom. Our kids felt like they had their own little condo. Down the hill at the entrance to the property is the most amazing bakery (blue house next to driveway entrance). We walked to the zip line tour. We couldn’t wait to get back to the house at the end of the day. We saw 7 howler monkeys behind the house, two iguanas came to visit in the morning, and lots of green parrots. Paradise in the jungle.
If I really had to nit pick, a few Tupperware’s for food storage in the kitchen would be great, and WiFi upstairs was a little iffy, and no tv cable upstairs but with such a beautiful place I was fine that the kids had to put down the electronics or come downstairs and hang with their parents to watch tv. Netflix was available upstairs and we didn’t fly all the way to montezuma to watch tv. The pictures don’t do this villa justice. Truly a beautiful place! Highly recommend.
