Agua Vista
Reviewed 28 November 2015

We were 2 people in the Bamboo Bungalow for a 5 night stay which was far too short. The bungalow is an ingenious design, located perfectly on one of the most amazing properties in the area. We had total privacy, priceless views of the stormy skies over distant bays, 20 steps from the gorgeous pool, Wi-Fi served us fine from inside the bungalow, and the hosts are gracious when you need them. It was impeccably clean & maintained daily. There was even a communal laundry machine to use. We had a 4x4 rental car which served us well, since we were lucky to get a few days of good rainy weather in late November. Going to Montezuma or Cobano for groceries or dining were simple trips. I studied the Montezuma hotel options online for hours and after being here I am certain we made the right choice. We wish we'd booked this rental for our entire stay in CR because nothing could compare to it and moving on was an inevitable let down. Next time if we want to see another lovely area of CR we will make that the beginning of our trip and end at Agua Vista.

Room Tip: The Bamboo Bungalow is perfect for 2 who love nature.

We stayed there in september, very quiete place in the jungle, we have seen green parrots, a howler monkey family, lizards, many butterflys and many other birds that i could not identify. They have a very nice garden, including a fish pond. The owners are Kind and helpfull. We stayed in the Bamboo casa, the property is clean and has an amazing shower. There is a infinite pool so you can relax after a day at the beach. There are others houses on the property that could accommodate more people. Great place to relax, highly recommended even better if you have a car.

Alex thank you for all you good advices hope we visit again.

Room Tip: Best if you have a car

We stayed in Casa Trogon for 5 nights. Our little house was really lovely, clean and had everything you could want in it, even a washing machine which was really helpful as this was the last place we stayed in Costa Rica and we had hardly any clothes left. The little pool is really nice, we used it quite a lot even though it does a bit dirty from all the rain but that can't be helped. The owner is lovely, we met her on the night we arrived and again on the day we left, otherwise we only saw her once jogging on the road. Now the access is not that bad! After driving for 3 weeks in Costa Rica you do get used to the bad roads and this one was no different but it's not worse. Maybe if it had been our first place to stay I might have said different but by the time we got to Agua Vista I was used to the roads. Montezuma is a 5 minutes drive away, so again renting a car is a must. I guess the only problem with the house was that some of the screens were coming off a bit and the one in my room was not closing at all, so we did not feel comfortable leaving any doors or windows open, so we did get really hot indoors, but it was not too much of a problem as a gain by then we were used to bugs. My biggest tip would be that if you are going to use the safe in the house as recommended by the owner then do not forget to empty it before you leave!!!! Yes I left all my documents in the safe including passports and happily drove to San Jose Airport without a care in the world! Needless to say that we didn't get on our flight! The owner was kind enough to arrange a courier to send my passports to the airport so we had an extra day in Costa Rica :)

Room Tip: Check the safe before you leave!!!

This is one of the most perfect places to stay. You can hear and see the ocean from any house you stay at. So very private and close to the village of Montezuma. We stayed off the street near town after our stay at Agua Vista way to noisy.
Khalida and Alex our the such gracious hosts. Much respect for them opening up their lives to make such a relaxing and inviting and learning space for us. In return they deserve the same. If you want the time of your life you won't forget stay here!
Hope to see you guy's some time soon in the future! Thanks Cheryl

Room Tip: I fell in love with Casa Morfo even tried to draw the butterfly on the wall!

We had an amazing time at Aguavista. It was a sweet little two bedroom bungalow (Casa Cariblanco) just a very short drive up the the hill from Montezuma and the beach. The bungalow had doors that opened up to allow wonderful breezes in, and there was everything we needed (small kitchen, comfortable beds, hammocks, an amazing view of the ocean). Khalida and Alex were wonderful hosts, providing suggestions for local activities and restaurants. The pool is awesome too. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
