Chez Mu Luxury Beach & Jungle Villa

Villa - Entire home/apt · , Montezuma, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

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!

Guest Access

The entire villa and 3+ acre gardens are yours alone.

Interaction with Guests

Housekeepers live down the hill from the main house, and will do the daily cleaning when you're away or a schedule that's convenient for you.

The Neighborhood

Montezuma is unique among beach destinations in Guanacaste and Nicoya. For years, this remote village and its surrounding beaches, forests and waterfalls have enjoyed near-legendary status among backpackers, UFO seekers, hippie expatriates, and European budget travelers. Although it maintains its alternative vibe, Montezuma has emerged as a great destination for all manner of travelers looking for a beach retreat surrounded by some stunning scenery. An Italian influence can be felt in the outstanding restaurants in the area. Active pursuits abound, from hiking in the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve to horseback riding to a beach-side waterfall. The house itself is also walking distance to a Canopy (zip-line) Tour and a Butterfly Farm. As ever, it's the natural beauty, miles of almost abandoned beaches, rich wildlife, and jungle waterfalls that first made Montezuma famous, and they continue to make this one of the favorite beach towns in Costa Rica.

Getting around

Highly recommend renting a 4x4 to fully explore the area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A truly outstanding property, absolute paradise for relaxing in total privacy or using as a base for exploring the Nicoya peninsula.

  • Chez Mu is an incredible place overlooking Montezuma. The place has premium features and is well set up for enjoying the natural surroundings either in the pool, on loungers, in a hammock or at two different tables. Honestly, it's hard to leave during the day to adventure when you have everything you need. The home is immersed in nature so you can wake up to Howler monkeys, parrots or a variety of birds (we experienced all three during our 4 days). It's about a 7 minute (some what steep) drive to Montezuma. Eric's recommendations on restaurants, tour companies and maps were spot on that he provides in a 55 page guide. Our only suggestion is to pick up groceries at the Super Max before you drive into Montezuma as it has a much wider selection including fresh meat to BBQ. Pura Vida!

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

    It has everything you need, be it for a small group, family or just a couple. Eric is on hand via email & is very helpful should you require anything during your stay.

    If we lived a little closer to Costa Rica, we would all return in a heartbeat.

    If you want a home away from home but most likely even better than your own, then stay here.

  • Simply put, Chez Mu is fantastic. It was the perfect hilltop villa from which to base our relaxation and exploration of the southern Nicoya peninsula. Beautiful, modern, comfortable, well-maintained. We spent many hours lounging, reading, eating, sunbathing, and swimming on the main pool area deck. Many birds and jungle animals visible from the house and in the surrounding gardens. Amazing to wake enjoy some morning coffee in the open air with the sounds of howler monkeys as a backdrop. My only regret is that it didn't last much much longer.
