Our recent Airbnb guests say it best:
"Jungle Heaven"
"Chez Mu is a dream. It can fit a large group of people, but couples, if you want a secluded place with a gorgeous view, Chez mu is for you. My fiancé actually ended up proposing right out on the pool deck in front of the gorgeous pacific view."
"A truly beautiful home in an incredible setting, so much so, you just don't want to leave. Ever."
"Nous voyageons depuis 8 mois et "chez Mu" est notre numéro 1 des locations!!"
"Increíble lugar!"

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, oceanview and modern outdoor living furnishings. The Villa can accommodate a large family or several couples. Unplug, unwind and get lost in our picturesque jungle paradise!

The home is in the middle of a lush 4 acre property, with privacy, tranquility and pure beauty. 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 to have a BBQ party, or the deck 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!

A group of four of us stayed at Chez Mu for two nights and loved the place. The photos can't really do the view from the pool and deck justice which are the highlights. It's an easy 20 minute walk into town and either a little more strenuous return or reasonable taxi back. The owner Mike was very helpful and made sure we had everything needed. Would certainly recommend and hope to return some time in the future!

Chez Mu is a dream. I know it can fit a large group of people, but couples, if you want a secluded place with a gorgeous view, Chez mu is for you. My fiancé actually ended up proposing right out on the pool deck in front of the gorgeous pacific view. The wildlife surrounding you is amazing. Mike and Jenny were readily available to answer any and all questions we had. Jenny recommended some of my favorite food spots in Costa Rica(Mocha's Monchi and Clandestina). I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. I only wish we would have stayed longer. We will definitely be back(URL HIDDEN) Recommendations for future guests: use waze as Mike suggests. We foolishly used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps and it lead us to a road that had become a river. Talk about adventure. The place is definitely worth the drive. Also, after sunset, keep the doors closed and the lights dim or you will have more bugs trying to get in than you can believe. Be careful of any food/drink spills. The ants will come.

Jungle heaven! The house is amazing , right in the middle of the jungle with a beautiful view on the ocean. You wake up with the sounds of the birds and go to bed with the incredible sight of the fireflies! It is 5 min up the road from montezuma which is a nice bohemian , hippie chic place. Mike and His daughters who are the new owners are great support before and during your stay and the housekeepers are really helpful and discreet. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay and enjoy the best of Costa Rica in just one place ! Many thanks mike and Jennifer

I would have thought Chez Mu is a place that only exists in dreams if I hadn't seen it for myself. It truly is a great option for those who want to getaway and disconnect from the real world for a bit to enjoy the great outdoors. The house is secluded but the surrounding jungle encompasses you and makes you feel a part of the beautiful nature around you. The pool deck boasts great ocean views and the sparking infinity pool will make it very hard to leave. It was so nice to lounge in the pool and look out at the ocean while listening to the relaxing sounds of the birds flying around. I'm telling you - it's like a dream! The inside of the house was terrific, as well. Very clean. Roomy enough to accommodate a large group of people, if needed, very comfortable and updated with modern amenities. The beds are beyond comfortable and I was delighted to find the shower pressure was great! Mike and Jenny were great hosts. Very prompt and responsive to any questions I had. They even provide a PDF pamphlet of everything you would want or need to know about Chez Mu and Costa Rica! The house keeper was also very helpful and attentive to all of my needs. If you are a solo traveler or a large party looking for a place to stay in the area, look no further than Chez Mu! It is everything you need it to be and more. I would definitely stay here again!

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!

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!
