Casa Montezuma is a unique home in an amazing setting. If you're looking to truly connect with the sights and sounds of Nicoya, then this is your place.

The open floor plan puts you at the center of what amounts to a nature preserve. Most of the wildlife Donna and Tito mention in their description are regular visitors, easily visible from all levels of the house.

So many great features -- the location, the tropical landscaping, the jungle sounds, the short walk to the beach and river. But above all might be what a pleasure it was to get to know Tito, who made our stay something more than just a getaway. He's an extraordinary host and guide to a way of life that seems perfectly suited to the surroundings: connected, open, and respectful of the beauty of this little patch of Costa Rica.

Three weeks was far too short a time to fully appreciate Casa Montezuma.

“A treehouse oasis in a true wildlife preserve!!”

Casa Montezuma was an amazing experience in Costa Rica! You never need to leave the casa, Costa Rica comes to you in a lush wildlife rich environment.
We spent 5 days in this amazing location we were a family of 5 and had done some additional traveling to Arenal and Playa Conchal. This is where we felt we could have spent all of our time!
The house itself comes completely equipped with everything you need. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the kitchen was great for cooking and playing games. But the highlight are the 3 observation areas on each level of the house where you can observe monkeys, iguana's, birds and agoutis. Are 14 year old claimed the hammock and it was the most fought over spot during our trip!
Tito was so helpful and kind. Always checking with us to see if we needed anything and sharing a lot of great knowledge about the Costa Rican Culture.
Also introducing us to his pet pig Chuleta, my kids loved going to feed her our fruit scraps in the morning!
The beach is a short walk down the road and it is breathtaking! Hermit crabs, looking at tide pools and body surfing were some of the highlights. On our evening walk back from the beach we often saw and heard howler monkeys in the trees above us! It was very easy to get around without a vehicle.
We highly recommend visiting Casa Montezuma, it is an awesome place!

Management Response
Feb 4, 2014
Just want to make sure that prospective guests know that the "resident dogs and pig" are at all times confined to a fenced area on a neighboring property. They are NOT residents of Casa Montezuma rental house.

Guests are welcome to interact with the pets, but they are not part of the rental experience unless you choose to do that. The dogs are trained not to bark at any time, are kept inside at night, and are never permitted to run loose on the property.
