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."
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!
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.
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.
Chez Mu is 1 mile from downtown Montezuma and 12 miles from Mal País. Aside from the beaches next to town in Montezuma, the other nearest beach to the house is beautiful Playa Manchas about 1.5 miles heading southwest towards Cabuya. It's possible to walk to the beaches, but the hike back is up a steep hill. We highly recommend renting a 4x4 to fully explore the nature parks, beaches and restaurants in the area.
We don't ask for a security deposit, but you are responsible for any major damages or loss.
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!
