Agua Vista

Alex and Khalida are wonderful hosts. They have great information about the area. The cottage we stayed was wonderful. Nice big kitchen with a good selection of utensils and a good gas stove.Big patio area outside with a dipping pool. Woke up to monkeys playing in the trees. You have to drive back a private road and it is well worth it when you get there. Beautiful view of the ocean in the distance. Very relaxing.

Stay here. Khalida met us with homemade scones and Alex negotiated a seamless car rental...et al. Choose to bring only the best companions that enjoy nature and quiet beauty as this special place feels like Montezuma's best kept secret.

Stayed 6 wonderful nights at Casa Trogon with my 3 teenage children. We loved the swimming holes and waterfalls that run along the property. The views of the Pacific, the visiting wildlife and plunge pool after swimming/surfing in the ocean, was amazing, relaxing and refreshing. Our host, Alex and Khalida were very informative and gave us good information on sites, activities and supermarkets. The Casa was very comfortable and clean with a full size fridge and wash machine. Internet pictures are accurate.

First of all, the owners Alex & Khalida were wonderful. Responded promptly to all my emails I sent prior to our trip and answered all my questions thoroughly. They were welcoming, friendly and very helpful during our stay. Accommodations were clean and very comfortable. It was great to sit on our little patio and watch the monkeys play in the trees! There was no air conditioning but there were ceiling fans. I was surprised how nice and cool it was in the evening and it was quite comfortable for sleeping. It was a great experience! Thanks Alex & Khalida!

Room Tip: Try and get one of the houses with a plunge pool..........it was great having our own little pool!

My husband and I stayed in Casa Morfo for 7 nights in February 2013. Our friends stayed in Casa Trogon at the same time as us. We all agreed that Agua Vista was one of the best, if not the best, accommodations we've ever stayed in. The casa was comfortable, well-equipped and had a spectacular view of the Gulf of Nicoya. The plunge pool was a welcome addition to the hot days, right outside our bedroom door. Even though there was no AC in our casa, sleeping was comfortable with the ceiling fan in the bedrooms. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept. We saw more wildlife outside our casa doors than we did hiking through the Cabo Blanco nature reserve. The property is so quiet, peaceful and tranquil that it's hard to put it into words. I can't add much more to what the other reviewers have already said. I have nothing negative to say, except that it's my opinion that you would definitely want a car, or a moped at the least, to get around. If you value peace and tranquility as well as beauty of your surroundings all at an incredible value, Agua Vista is the place for you. We hope to get back there someday!

This was the most incredible & special place for us to stay in Costa Rica. The house we had was amazing, we stayed in 2 different ones as we kept trying to extend our stay. The wild life and environment was completely mind blowing, with beautiful private waterfall walks literally on our doorstep. This was a complete retreat, a place to relax and enjoy the word's most natural pleasures and sights. Every thing was super clean and so well equipped we wanted for nothing. We were given such a lovely welcome & helpful local advice from Alex & Khalida - the owners (thank you so much!!) A very special place to stay we will most definitely be returning :)

Our favorite place in Costa Rica was Agua Vista. We enjoyed the plunge pool and the view of the Gulf. The monkeys visited us in the morning, both howlers and white faced. The property is close to Montezuma and the beautiful beaches. The cabinas are equipped with everything you need, including the wonderful outdoor shower. I highly recommend staying here and exploring the Montezuma area.
