Emily and I stayed here on our honeymoon and could not have been happier! The house exceeded all expectations. It is large, clean, and comfortable with lots of amenities, but the real main attraction is a back deck which directly overlooks beautiful jungle canopy. We saw monkeys in our backyard the first day. Later we saw pizote (a kind of coati), iguanas, toucans, geckos, and butterflies, all on the property. And that's just what we could see - we could hear a lot more. Our favourite part of the trip was listening to the jungle sounds at night sipping a cold beer.
Although there are other villas within sight, we genuinely felt alone in the Costa Rican jungle. But being alone in the Costa Rican jungle doesn't feel scary or like roughing it because you have glass doors sealing everything out and AC to help you sleep comfortably.
Cecilia was a warm and gracious host. She helped us out when the ATM in town swallowed my bank card and made sure we had everything we needed, but gave us lots of space which was nice on our honeymoon.
The house is up a steep hill, but realistically that's the trade off for all the privacy you get so close to Montezuma (and it's way less steep than the hill up to the butterfly gardens/delicias area) It's 10mins down and 15mins climbing back up, and it's better to avoid trekking uphill between 11am-3pm, the hottest part of the day. Taxis are available in town but we walked up and down everyday, and used the exercise to justify eating whatever we wanted in town :) We lost weight on our trip.
If you're going to Costa Rica to experience nature (comfortably) and you want privacy, and you also want to be close to town and to all of the activities and attractions Montezuma has to offer, this is the best place for you. Emily and I had a magical honeymoon and we hope that other travellers will experience the real-life magic of being in the jungle in this villa in Costa Rica.
