Agua Vista
Reviewed January 6, 2011

My boyfriend and I vacationed in the Nicoya Penninsula Dec 28-Jan 4th 2011. We stayed at Casa Morfo Dec 31st & Jan 1, 2011. Khaliday & Alex were amazing hosts. They graciously welcomed us over to their place to use the pool and to visit on New Years Eve. They also gave us amazing advice on where to travel next and how to spend our days in Montezuma.

My boyfriend and I cooked all our meals in the beautiful kitchen at Casa Morfo. There were plenty of cooking utensils & essentials provided for us there. The construction of the house is beautiful and respectful of the surrounding nature. We spotted much wildlife around the house as well. We slept quite well there outside and inside. No need for air conditioning there was a marvelous breeze that flowed right through the windows. Hardly any bugs so we left all the windows and doors open most of the time. The dipping pool was perfect in the heat of the day and at the beginning for a quick wake up!

We spent New Years Day hiking down a trail next to the house to the waterfalls and then continued down to the town of Montezuma and then again back up to our house. I recommend for adventurous hikers - it's quite a trek but well worth it!

Alex recommended we travel to Samara next and set us up with a taxi driver - which was amazing - thank you! If we could come back every year we would.

House and infinity pool were just perfect, short trip to great town of montezuma and beaches. Nice warm shower, air conditioning and beautiful wood floors with a full kitchen made this a great home for our vacation! The road to the house is typical of the area, suggest a 4X4 if driving.

This is an amazing place. The hosts and owners have created a special place that shows their love for Costa Rica and their desire to please their guests. The rooms are clean, well-appointed and lovingly decorated with art created by Khalida, who is a talented artist. It's very peaceful being away from the hustle and bustle of the main part of Montezuma, but it's easy to get to everything. They couldn't do enough to make my stay enjoyable. Would give this place the highest recommendation for solo travelers, couples and families.

Aguavista is located on a jungle hillside close to the town of Montezuma. It is an amazingly beautiful setting with individual bungalows with a great design aesthetic. Ours had 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, an outside shower, and a swimming pool. We woke up every morning to a view of the sunrise over the ocean. We werre treated every day to close up views of a myriad of tropical birds, monkeys, and many other Costa Rican animals. Our hosts, Alex and Khalida, are fantastic. This was one of the most wonderful places we have ever stayed in many years of travel.

We spent 3 nights in Casa Trogon at the wonderful Agua Vista. It truly felt like we were renting a private villa of our own, but with all the perks of having great hosts who know the area and are more than willing to assist with whatever you need (including arranging tours, recommending places to eat, etc.). Alex and Khalida were truly top of the line hosts.

The house with private plunge pool was fantastic. We really enjoyed being able to have a dip after a hot day at the beach, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or just walking around town. It was also really nice to have a washing machine to do a quick load to see us through the rest of our trip. The shower is great, beds comfortable, and everything in the kitchen modern and fully functional. We also loved sitting out on the patio, or chilling in the hammock.
On top that, the rates are unbelievable for the quality of accomodation.

It was so nice to be in a secluded, private place, and yet be just a short cab ride up and down the hill to Montezuma ($4).

We had a great time, and would be back in a second if we ever made it to the Nicoya Peninsula again.

Great spot for families. Nice clean basic lodging. Kitchen supplies and utensils are limited but workable. Best wildlife viewing in CR right on your front porch. Keep your camera ready. We found dining in Montezuma to be OK and a tad bit expensive. Make sure to rent a 4 wheeler if you are driving in during the wet season.

One drawback : No internet to the house. You will need to go to the pool or main house area check the email.
