These three small houses each consist of a bedroom, bathroom, porch and kitchen. They are run by a young couple who works very hard to accommodate their guests. The houses are comfortable, beds come with mosquito netting, and the kitchen is stocked with cookware and a fridge.
The location is the only draw-back. It's not on the beach, but it's about a 20-minute walk away if you're stuck there during the day without a ride (not possible to walk back at night without a flash light). The couple running the place also provide rides into town, and they will even pick you up at a requested time. They provide a free tour to the third level of the Montezuma waterfalls (most people have to hike 20 mins. to the first level; this couple will drive you so you only have to hike 5 mins.) and free booking on tours and buses out of Montezuma. If they can't get you back to the hotel, a $5-6 cab ride will. Even though you won't be able to walk right out of your bungalow and onto the beach, the price ($30/night) is well worth the extra planning required in making sure you can get to and from the Casas throughout the day.
You can buy food items in town and wake up and cook a breakfast in the kitchen with provided cookware. The porch makes a great place to enjoy an evening in the country, and you can hear all sorts of wildlife around you throughout the night and day. The porch is also good for getting to know your neighbors, as Montezuma in general attracts very interesting people.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The beautiful Casas Colibri are set amidst blissful tranquility on the hill above Montezuma, Costa Rica. There are 3 immaculately clean little houses for rent, in a gorgeous garden surrounded by nature. Each has an open plan fully equipped kitchen and bedroom, separated by a breakfast bar; plus a good-sized bathroom and a terrace. With extra mattresses, the houses can accommodate up to 6 people. The houses are laid out so that each enjoys a feeling of privacy, yet they are close enough to each other that a group or family can rent several and enjoy their holiday together. ... more less
