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!

Guest access

We stayed at Chez Mu for a week and really enjoyed living in the house. The view of the tree canopy and the ocean from the deck and the infinity pool can hardly be described with words. Great birdwatching just from the deck. The travel guide to Chez Mu (a PDF more than 50 pages long!) was very useful and right on target on all topics it covered.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Eric's place. It was a beautiful location for relaxing in the pool after exploring the area. The town itself is very endearing, and the rooms comfortable and equipped with AC. Use of our car was essential in getting up the hill to the house. We saw lots of birds and frogs while sitting on the deck :) Would recommend to groups exploring Montezuma!

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!

Hello! This is Mike and along with my wife Linda, daughter Jenny and son-in-law Tyler, we are the proud new owners of Chez Mu. We visited Chez Mu at the end of May 2017 and completely fell in love with this magical property in Montezuma and had to buy it. We completed the transaction in July with the former owners Eric, David and Luis, who had owned Chez Mu since 2006. They put their hearts into making Chez Mu a dream escape and we plan on continuing that vision . Share it with us!
