About this listing

Our recent Airbnb guests sum it up best:

"A truly beautiful home in an incredible setting, so much so, you just don't want to leave. Ever."

"Simply put, Chez Mu is fantastic. [...] Beautiful, modern, comfortable, well-maintained."

The space

Chez Mu is nestled on a hilltop above Montezuma. The Villa offers tropical luxury at its finest. Custom built to the highest standards, with a spectacular pool and modern furnishings. The Villa can accommodate a large family or several couples.

The home is in the middle of a lush 3+ acre property, which ensures absolute privacy and tranquility. White faced and howler monkeys, as well as parrots. hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds can be seen daily. The hilltop setting provides panoramic views of the jungle and ocean, as well as a steady and refreshing breeze (and no mosquitoes!).

Plenty of deck space near the pool could become the backdrop for a very special wedding party and is perfect for yoga.

It is only 5 minutes from downtown Montezuma (cozy town with amazing beaches), 15 minutes from Cobano (bank, doctor, supermarket) and 25 minutes from Malpais (incredible sunsets and surfing).

Chez Mu is the perfect honeymoon retreat, or pampering base camp for your family's tropical adventure!

My family of 8 had a wonderful stay at Chez Mu. Amazing views, expansive house, great design, awesome pool and convenient secluded location in the middle of the gorgeous Costa Rica landscape. The house guide was very thorough and worth a read for any recommendation you could imagine. The house-keeper went over the top by washing and folding a load of laundry for a tip. We would recommend to any (small or large) group looking for an amazing place to stay. Tip: we rented ATV's from Montezuma and used them to go to and from the town as well as beach hop to Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and Manzanillo - quite a trek (~12 miles - 45-60 min on dirt roads) but well worth it.

Amazing views of the jungle and ocean, very clean bedding and towels. House keeper was super accommodating and even drove us into town as taxis are hard to come by in Montezuma. It's remote and private and would be perfect for big groups!

I stayed at Eric's place for two days with my family and it couldn't have been better. The view, pool and lodging accommodations were spectacular. The house is a short drive to the small town of Montezuma where you can find great food and other activities. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a little R&R.

We fell in love with Eric's house ! What a stunning view ! The house keepers are very discreet, kind and happy to assist with anything. The location of the house is perfect to travel around: Curú, Santa Teresa/Malpaís. The guide with all the addresses and advise is so helpful too! Final note we saw some monkeys on our last day so couldn't ask for more ! We will definitely be back

We had a fantastic stay! Eric was a great host who made sure everything ran smoothly. Chez Mu is located on a quiet hill, 5 minute drive away from the lovely village of Montezuma. The house is beautiful, with a great swimming pool overlooking the jungle. We woke up every morning to the sounds of birds and monkeys. A paradise!

This place is not worth 3,000 a week. The lights weren't working, the pool had exposed cables and the lights didn't work, one of the upstairs bedroom doors didn't open and close with ease (was worried to leave my kids in the bedroom), the shower head in their bedroom was awful and worse of all we didn't have running water our last day in the house. At first the host was very communicative, however he did not respond to my message or phone call when there was no running water until the following day. A little too late. He only offered his apologies with no compensation. Sorry to say but it wasn't a good experience.

Response from Eric:
Thank you Marissa for your very valid comments. We regret that your visit during the busy Easter week didn't allow us to address these maintenance issues promptly. We have sent a more reliable electrician from the capital to check the lighting problem, and have already adusted the stiff sliding door. Thanks for being a good sport while we fixed the brief and highly unusual (first time it's ever happened!) combined interruption of both our water well and municipal water supply on Good Friday. It was fixed the following morning, but it must have been very frustrating. Our apologies.

Remote luxury! Chez Mu is a wonderful home base for anyone exploring the region. The house manual is top notch, we visited every secret place Eric recommended. The pool was a plus, great for a dip after a hot day out and about. The beds are comfy and you quickly grow used to seeing lizards on the walls inside and lots of creatures everywhere. ;) Zenon, the groundskeeper and his dog Lassi were a hit with our boys. The grounds are fantastic. A charming, peaceful oasis overall.

Three "tico" friends, Eric, David and Luis, bought a magical property in Montezuma in 2006 and together with our wives have put our hearts into making it the dream escape from it all. Share it with us!
