My daughter is starting College in the fall and we traveled as a family of 4 to Costa Rica before she goes off to college. She picked Casa Cariblanco and its was perfect way to end our trip. Loved waking up to the beautiful sunrise, the hike down to the waterfalls, the small but eclectic town of Montezuma. Loved the... More

Wow, what an amazing place! Such a beautiful area, unbelievable view from Agua Vista, such a secluded and lovely place, feel so lucky to have found it. Montezuma is not too bad of a drive (and ferry trip) from the airport, especially considering we first traveled all the way to the Limon area. When you get off the ferry it... More

I've lived in Costa Rica for the past 8 months and can say hands down this is the best place I have ever stayed. Alex and Khalida we're more than you could ask for as hosts. We stayed in Casa Tragon which was everything we needed and a dipping pool. Agua Vista is the perfect place to have a lazy... More

I've been coming to Montezuma for 5 years and this property is my favorite property in all of Costa Rica. Whether you are a solo traveler, or with a group and need a few homes, this is the place to be. The view on the hill is breathtaking, the owners are amazing, you feel as if you have been friends...

Absolutely loved this place. We stayed in Casa Morfo when we first arrived in Costa Rica on a 3 week trip and found it the perfect place to relax, unwind and plan our itinerary. It was so quiet, with lovely views and wildlife all around you. We particularly liked waking up really early to sit on the patio, watch the... More

My husband and I spent a week in Bamboo Bungalow in February as finale to our 3+ week trip to Costa Rica. It was just perfect, with the open-air shower being a particular delight! I don't know what else I can add to everything that has been said before, except to reemphasize that we saw more wildlife from our deck... More

While in Costa Rica we visited Cabo Blanco, Corcovado, and Quetzels National Parks and also the Curu Preserve.......and yet we saw more wildlife (more closely) at Casa Morpho and along the driveway in than at all those parks COMBINED!

We stayed at Aquavista in Jan 2012 and 2013. This Jan Aquavista was fully booked so we tried another house which seemed similar on the net. What a contrast and disappointment. It was not that our 2014 house was bad. But the profusion and close viewing of wildlife at Aquavista was missing. I now realise how much skill and work... More
