Rose and Glen's house is gorgeous. Ideally located a short drive up from Montezuma with breathtaking views. We loved their outdoor living spaces and their well-equipped kitchen! Do note there are no screens on the upper level so nighttime can be a little buggy. This didn't bother us as we knew we were immersed in the jungle with all it's glory! The pool was perfect and just as pictured. We met the current caretaker Jim who was a delight- super friendly but also gave us our privacy. We just wish we could've stayed longer.

This is a great place to stay, and Rose & Glen are great people to rent from. The location is ideal especially if you have a car, as it's elevated enough to catch the breeze off of the ocean, and the pool will help keep you cool during the day.

What a treat it was to stay at Rose and Glen's mountain casita! We loved relaxing in the pool and eating meals or reading books in the open-air dining area that had beautiful views of the ocean and the treetops. We felt like we were in a tree house! Each evening we saw a flurry of monkey activity in the trees a few hundred yards away, and listening to the songs of unique birds. We even had a short "visit" from a monkey when we were on the lower level and he snuck into the kitchen on the upper level and stole an avocado! (We learned to keep the kitchen door shut after that!) It was the perfect setting to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. The bedroom had a comfy bed and good AC. As other travelers have stated, the road down to town was windy, steep and had deep ruts in places, so AWD is a must. Lasty, and most important, Rose and Glen were incredibly genuine, kind, gracious, helpful, and interesting. This was a treasured experience!

We had a wonderful stay at Rose and Glen's house in Montezuma. The house is located about a 15 minute walk into town and from there to a number of beautiful beaches on either side. It was the perfect place to relax, cook, and spend time together, and the pool was a wonderful bonus. Rose and Glen were very helpful in providing tips on arriving and activities in the area. I can't recommend their place enough!

It's difficult to even find where to begin. This was the first stop of our week long Costa Rica adventure. Glen and Rosemary definitely set the tone for the trip. You guys are so down to earth and friendly. Our trip was made special due to your recommendations of beaches, bakery, and the lay of the land in CR. I cannot thank you enough. The house is amazing! Cannot wait to stay here again! PuraVida

Rose and Glen's place was wonderful!! It was everything we needed an more! Beautiful place with privacy and tons of wonderful animals to look at - brilliant birds and monkeys!! Rose and Glen were wonderful hosts, taking the time to help us find places to explore. They were super helpful when the AC broke and had it fixed within 24 hours!!! I would go back in a heartbeat and will recommend this place to everyone I know who is planning to visit Costa Rica!! Abe

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 US and have our home of 28 years in Seattle in the Fremont neighborhood and a duplex in the Ballard neighborhood as well as well as a townhouse in the James Bay neighborhood of 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!
