My boyfriend and I recently spent 4 wonderful nights at the Agua Vista Bamboo Bungalow. The accommodations were affordable, beautiful, and clean with gorgeous views and quick access to the trails. We saw just as much wildlife (Coatis, Agouti, Capuchin monkeys, Howler Monkeys, snakes etc.) on the property as we did on our many hikes. Alex and Khalida were so... More

Agua Vista was a wonderful ending to our 3 week vacation in Costa Rica and Panama. We stayed seven nights at Casa Trogon in mid-December 2014 and felt like we had arrived at an oasis. Khalida and Alex were great hosts giving us helpful tips on where to go or not go. The Casa was clean and well equipped for... More

At the end of a long, bumpy road lies a place that will captivate you. Quiet, reflective, more animals than you will see in a National Park...here you will get a glimpse of true Costa Rica. Your hosts are stellar. If you have a logistics issue they will make it all right. Spent four nights there and wished it had... More

We stayed in Casa Morfo with two children under the age of 8 after staying nearer the centre of Montezuma. It was peaceful with beautiful views and safe for the children to explore. A lovely communal swimming pool plus your own small plunge pool, very helpful knowledgeable couple run the houses. Very well kitted out kitchen so you can cook... More

This little gem is a great spot for anyone who wants to explore Montezuma without the nightlife and town bustle. It's super safe, nestled up in the mountains about a mile into a private property. But in 5 minutes, you're in town, enjoying the cuisine and social life, but you have a great little hideaway with an ocean view and... More

Agua Vista was the perfect ending to a great vacation. Khalida and Alex welcomed our family with open arms. We stayed in the Casa Trogon, which had 2 bedrooms, super clean kitchen, outdoor shower and nice cool plunge pool. Since we're in the hospitality biz as well, with a bunch of small cottages at Lake Tahoe we really felt right... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Morfo for nine wonderful days on our third trip to Costa Rica and enjoyed every minute.

We stayed in Casa Morpho in 2009 for our honeymoon. We felt so lucky to have found this amazing property.

What a blast from the past! You would not believe all the changes - come back! It is different to travel with kids, of course...but looking at everything through their eyes in fascinating. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review after so much time! More

My wife and I visited Agua Vista on the second part of our honeymoon. We were not disappointed! In fact, we were blown away! Khalida and Alex could not be better hosts with a nicer family.
