Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a great stay here in Montezuma. Rose and Glen's house is in a great location - close enough to get to town easily (10-15 min walking, 5 min by car), but far enough away to relax and get away from it all. We spent a lot of time enjoying the view, the pool and just soaking up the "pura vida." The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

  • We've stayed in this house 1 month and we really enjoyed it. The house is even better than on the photos - it was big enough for 4 persons, very cosy, it has everything what you need. The pool was very clean, the kitchen is good equipped (i could cook every day during our stay), the garden is green and fresh even during the dry season. the view from the upper terrase is amazing, we are really missing it now. The beach is not far, just 15-20 min walking. But the house is on a hill, so the way back is a good fitness training. if you don't like it, you may take a taxi for 3 000 colones.
    We did not meet with Rose and Glen, but we always had possibility to connect them. There also was a very kind and helpful Mercedes, who was ready to help us with any problem. She speaks english very good, what makes communication easy.
    So, we really loved our stay in this beautiful house and can recommend it to everyone.

  • Rose & Glen's home is fantastic! The kitchen is very well equipped, the pool very refreshing and the views amazing. Everything was clean and in good working order and we enjoyed the outdoor living space. Short drive or walk into town and nice breeze at night. We would definitely stay here again if we're lucky enough to make it back to Costa Rica!

  • Amazing and incredible is how I regard this experience. What I love about renting special places on airbnb is experiencing a different type of house from the one you live on right now. Rose & Glen's house is just that. A treehouse in the forest, only comfortable and amazing.

    The location is gorgeous, the view is fantastic. To the right it's pure virgin jungle, to the front it's the ocean, to the left more ocean. You are totally private but not alone. Montezuma is 5 minutes away by car.

    The house was very comfortable and it's worth it alone for the pool which we used each day. The main room was great and the showers and bathrooms were perfect with lots of closet space. The secondary bedroom is in the back and even though it doesn't have air conditioner we discovered that it was perfect at night with two powerful fans and my mom who loves air co slept like a baby there. The kitchen was well equipped too.

    The kitchen and top floor was where we spent most of our time, talking, eating and looking at the view. Each day monkeys, birds and iguanas showed up to say hi.

    I highly recommend this house for someone that wants to go to the beaches of Montezuma but wants to stay in nature in a laid back house. 5 stars.

  • Bring your camera as the porch of this home will offer so many opportunities! True jungle experience.

  • We stayed for a month at this amazing home in Montezuma! We felt right at home. The wifi is fast, AC works great, hot water and pool all to ourselves. Rose is so helpful with communication and directions. The home sits on an incredible property with lots of birds (and even monkeys!) and a river running through the back. Absolute paradise. The deck alone makes it worthwhile. The town on Montezuma is so beautiful and quaint- no resorts or big buildings. After awhile the locals knew our name and always greeted us walking through town every day. We are already talking about our next trip back! Miss it already!

  • Rose and Glen's place was beautiful! They had someone there to greet us and show us around even though we arrived relatively late in the evening.
    There were monkeys a few metres from the balcony a couple evenings and mornings.
    The house and the pool were both clean and well tended. The pool was especially appreciated on a few extra humid sunny days.We cooked our breakfast everyday and a few dinners and found the kitchen to be amply equipped.
    I spoke with Glen and Rose a few times before and during our stay and they were very helpful in suggesting local activities in town, and nearby hiking routes.

    Overall a delightful stay.

  • We had an absolutely perfect time at Rose & Glen's beautiful home. The house was charming and clean, and Rose and Glen were very kind in helping us get settled and find our way around the house. The pool was fantastic as was the lush garden with hummingbirds fluttering all around. Definitely recommend their cozy abode for a peaceful and relaxing Costa Rican getaway!

  • Belle petite maison propre avec un beau cachet. La piscine et le jardin sont magnifiques. À cinq minutes en auto de Montezuma. Propriétaires très sympathiques.

  • Rose & Glen have an amazing place in Montezuma...Great views in every direction. It was so nice of them to show us around the area on our first day and we absolutely loved their recommendations. This area has a wonderful sense of community, which made our stay so enjoyable. Their place has all the amenities one could wish for when on vacation and the pool is awesome!

    I would highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting this lovely part of Costa Rica. The place is amazing and the Bolinger's are wonderful people to deal with, so kind.

Retired -- Manage our vacation rentals
Hi Our names are Glen and Rose Marie we are a retired couple from Seattle. We have a home in Montezuma and have lived the "pura vida" 6 to 7 months in Costa Rica every year since 2007. We also love the north west and have homes in Seattle and Victoria, BC which we just cannot give up so we have turned them into vacation rentals so we can enjoy them when we are around. Since we have vacation rentals you can be assured that we will treat your place with respect and leave it in clean condition. I love to garden, cook, travel, getting to know interesting people form all over the world, and also enjoying the beauty of the places were we live! Hope you will enjoy our homes as much as we do!
