“First rate location and property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

Montezuma Beach Houses are a great holiday rental location. The houses are located on an amazing stretch of beach and about a half hour walk from Playa Grande and about a 7 minute walk to Montezuma.
The houses are in very good shape and have all the amenities needed for a great vacation. The property is very well maintained as are the homes.
The property is owned by Karen Harrison and we were fortunate to have her on site while we were there. She is a gracious hostess and provided us with great restaurant recommendations as well as invaluable tips on how to make the most of our stay in Montezuma. Her staff, Gitza and Oldimar are excellent and will do everything possible to make your stay a happy one.
Each morning you are awaken to the sounds of howler monkeys, all variety of birds and the sound of the ocean - it couldn't get any better!
I don't want to overpromise in my review of this location as everyone has different expectations but the reality is - this is a first rate rental property - everything is in good repair, all appliances and fixtures work, the water is drinkable, the units are clean and fresh towels and linens are provided half way through the week. If you need anything just ask the staff or Karen and they will do whatever they can to make sure your needs are met.

Room Tip: The Treehouse is small but comfortable and ideally suited to 4 guests. The other two locations are l...

Accommodation doesn't get better than this. I whole heartedly recommend Montezuma beach houses to anyone in the area. Our small family stayed in the Beach House this past Fall, and the pictures on the website are great, but don't do this place justice. It is beautifully constructed and landscaped. This amazing getaway and it is right on the Montezuma beach. It is quite lovely being just a little bit out of town. Very close to all the amenities of town (5 minute walk) and also 20 minutes from Playa Grande. (Great surfing.)

The house is fully set up with everything you need. There's an infinity pool, air conditioning, stocked kitchen (which is nice to have some meals in), outdoor BBQ/grilling area, ice machine, hammocks, sea turtle refuge just outside, and the constant soothing sound of the ocean. It is a perfect getaway for anyone, couple, family or large group!

We stayed here for one night and it just was not what we expected. Did not get the house we wanted or reserved. Very small house with a long walk to town and to our car. Did not like having our rental car so far away with crime higher in the beach areas. Moved to Santa Teresa the next day beautiful beaches and nicer town.

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!
