About This Listing
Villa Pochote is a large, cool and comfortable house located on the hill top above the town of Montezuma, in the most exclusive residential neighborhood 'Calle Linda Vista'
It is located only 1 Km. from Montezuma downtown and the beaches.
Because of its special location, in front of a grove that covers the bed of a stream and near the top of a huge Pochote tree, you can always enjoy a cool caressing breeze and observe a lot of wildlife.
In addition it has a view of the ocean from its terraces and outside dining area.
Villa Pochote is far enough from town for enjoying "peace at home" but at the same time is near enough for going walking to downtown, the beaches or Montezuma River and its famous waterfalls.

Since Villa Pochote is a very airy house it's ok if you smoke, the only thing is not to do it in the bedrooms!
Rebeca was a wonderful host. She met us at the house in a moment's notice (we didn't have any way of letting her know our updated arrival time once we were on the road). She gave us lots of great tips about the area (beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, etc) and we loved the house. The porch was a welcome relief from the hot sun, and we spent hours reading and enjoying the view of the jungle. The easy walk to the waterfall is a HUGE plus! We are so glad to have stayed there. Thank you, Rebeca!
Great spacious house, very clean, beautiful garden with squirrels, birds etc. 10 minute to the beautiful waterfalls in a quiet street and only 5 minutes by car to montezuma town. Rebeca is a very helpful and friendly host, speaks many languages and did some private spanish lessons to our children. Highly recommend this house and host!
Magique, voilà le mot qui me vient en pensant à la villa Pochote...
Un lieu enchanteur avec une maison confortable, spacieuse, chaleureuse, fonctionnelle ou rien ne manque.
La terrasse est unique avec une nature magnifique, généreuse et jamais dérangeante. Après une bonne journée d'activité à Montezuma et ses alentours, il n'y a pas un autre endroit ou nous aurions souhaité être... et surtout pas en bas de la montagne nous avions l'impression qu'il y avait moins d'air et plus de chaleur...
Quant à Rebeca; nous avons été super bien accueillis, elle est charmante, serviable et disponible...
Bref: Que du bonheur!
Magic, that's the word that comes to us in thinking about the villa Pochote ... An enchanting place with a comfortable home, spacious, warm, functional where lack nothing.
The terrace is unique with a wonderful nature, generous and never intrusive.
After a good day of activity to Montezuma and its surrounding area, there is not another place where we would have liked to be and especially not at the bottom of the mountain in Montezuma center where we had the impression that there was less air an more heat.
We have been super well welcomed by Rebeca who is charming, helpful and available ...
In short: beeing here was just happiness.
Rebeca was a great host during our stay! She had many great suggestions on where to go and eat. We tried many of them out and were impressed with everything! We had a great time in Montezuma and it was always nice to GI back to such a relaxing, beautiful home at the end of the day. If you're taxiiing to the house our suggestion would be to ask the driver to take you to Sollevante as not everyone is familiar with Villa Pochote and it is right next door!
Villa Pochote was a wonderful spot to stay for me and 2 of my friends. It is on top of a lovely hill, with a nice view. The villa is spacious and very clean. The kitchen has all you need for making your own food. Our host Rebeca was wonderful, she responded to all of our inquires fast and made some great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Even if you don't have a car, staying here is a much nicer experience than renting in the middle of the town where it may be loud and not as intimate. You can find taxis from town ($5 in Marh 2014) to bring you up the hill. Overall, a great experience!
We had an amazing time! Rebeca was an amazing host and Villa Pochote was more than we expected. When staying here, be sure to take Rebeca's advise about all the great places to eat in Montezuma.
About the Host, Rebeca
I'm from San José, Costa Rica. I came to Montezuma the first time, 31 years ago and fell in love with this magnetic, magical and wonderful place. First because of its nature and second because the way of living of the very little people that lived here at that time. Because of my mother's job as a costarrican diplomatic, I lived in some countries in South America and Europe but whenever I was I was longing Montezuma!
So, 21 years ago, when the tourism industry began to develop in the area, I came to settle here and founded the first tourist office in town in which I worked for 15 years.
Even if Montezuma town has changed a lot since that distant day of March 1982, and now there's people from all around the world and the way of living in Montezuma is so different, its nature conserves all the magic and enchanting charm of that time, for me that's the most valuable treasure that Montezuma and Villa Pochote have to offer!
And I think I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to live here all this time!
