“Best location in Montezuma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

Our family of 7 (2 adults 5 kids) stayed in the beach house. What a great spot. The pictures don't do justice. Easy walk along the beach to the quaint town. Very safe and beautiful beach on your doorstep. Nice and quiet at nights with surf to lull you to sleep. Clean, beautiful grounds, and a great pool to enjoy while you watch the animals. We stayed for 10 days and are extremely happy we chose that location. It is not a 5 star resort but fits perfectly into the very laid back lifestyle montezuma offers. The kitchen option including the outdoor bbq was great. Some meals in and some out at the various quaint restaurants including ylang ylang steps away. Would definitely book there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the treehouse for 4 nights in July and loved it. It is a perfect location and a quick easy walk to town but I found it lovely to be just out of town. It was incredibly quiet and the grounds keepers were wonderful. They were there to help if we needed anything but we never heard them. One day when we were swimming in the beautiful pool, Oldemar (the grounds keeper) got us a coconut that had just fallen. It was fun to watch him hack into it with a machete and a big smile on his face. We got to see Oldemar and his wife Gisita (sp? the groundkeepers) on occasion playing with their beautiful 3 year old daughter which just added to how great the place felt.

From the initial booking of the property, the owner was very responsive and helpful. She made things really easy which was great.

We stayed in the treehouse in the room farthest from the entrance and it was a bit noisy a few of the nights because of a big storm that was coming through. However, when you get woken up to the sounds of rain, waves and monkeys...there really is not much to worry about.

The highlight of this place for us was the outdoor kitchen with everything we needed in it. We loved to cook there and sit and enjoy the view while we ate our meals.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the treehouse and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: If its raining stay in the room closest to the door as it is much quieter.

We, 3 couples stayed in the beach villa in Feb. After corresponding with the owners for several months, who answered all my questions and were very helpful we finally arrived. The beach villa has 2 upstairs bedrooms modest but very nice each with their own bath and balcony. The linens were nice and there was plenty of storage and closet space. The downstairs bedroom had air conditioning and a computer w/ internet. We found the kitchen area to have everything we needed to prepare meals. The pool was great and went spend a lot of time around it and in the outdoor porches. The views from the house are beautiful the ocean is a a few steps away. I loved hearing the waves at night. The proximity of the house to the town is great close enough to walk, but just enough away to feel secluded. The staff at the house were helpful and sweet Having laundry available was a great help and made packing for the trip easier. There is a 1/2 bath, pool side and was very convient while lounging by the pool. My only complaint is the house could use a little TLC and attention to details. I would return without hesitation. Enjoy!

We came out last April with a group of friends, most of our group stayed in the Treehouse... my boyfriend and I stayed in one of the lock-off units above the main house. Our room was incredible! It wasn't intended as a romantic getaway, but the room really did encourage that sentiment - beautiful woodwork, cathedral ceilings, canopy bed, crashing waves right outside our window. The view from the deck was awesome, looking straight out towards the beach, literally just a hop skip and a jump. The groundskeepers do a magnificent job with the landscaping; we were surrounded by luscious tropical plants, flowers and fruit trees... watching the wild monkeys was really a treat! We enjoyed the pool and often had time to chat with the owners (who couldn't have been more accommodating!).

The location is great... it feels secluded and away from reality without actually being more than a 5 minute walk from town!

I would absolutely return and hope to soon!

I stayed at Montezuma Beach Houses as a part of the accommodation for the Peaks n Swells Surf Camp and I loved it. The location was was incredibly perfect. Montezuma Beach Houses sits right on the beach, its private location and peaceful atmosphere allowed me to relax into beach life immediately. I enjoyed the very short walk to town each morning and night to go surfing. If you want the calming ocean waves and fresh air to put you to sleep at night, then I would highly recommend Montezuma Beach houses. Also, if you get a chance to check out the Peaks n Swells Surf Camp at the same time, I guarantee you will want to stay forever!!

Our family stayed at the Beach House the week of Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time. The property is located right next to the beach. The beach in front had safe waves for the kids to boogie board. A good surfing beach was within walking distance. We had a kitchen in the house to use, so we did not have to eat out for every meal. The grounds were beautiful. The owners, Karen and George, were very nice and gave us information about restaurants and activities in the area. Montezuma is a clean, safe town with good shopping and restaurants. We are already talking about when we can go back to visit.

I traveled with my sister and her husband to Montezuma Costa Rica last Fall and stayed that the best beach house ever. Located just a short walk down the beach from town the main house was beautiful. Right on the beach with a pool this was the most relaxing vacations ever. The wild life was everywhere, monkeys, eguanias and birds.

The House was beautiful with hard wood beams, nice tile, and a great kitchen in which to make fruity rum drinks. The out door BBQ and bar was great fun.

The Surfing is great! Playa Grande and national park is just a short walk to the north and has excellent beginner and medium waves. Mal Paize (SP?) about a 30 min drive has the big waves on the other side of the peninsula. Cabo Blanco is another awesome national park just 5 miles to the south on the tip.

We surfed about half the time renting boards from the locals. So much fun. I hear a new Surf Camp just started called Peaks n Swells that is operating out of Montezuma Beach Houses. I am going to have to make that my next trip.

Montezuma the town is lots of fun with great bars, restaurants and arts. I would highly recommend people planning to go to Costa Rica to take the time and make Montezuma and these beach houses a priority. Montezuma Beach House Vacation is the best of Costa Rica.
