About this listing
We offer stunning views, convenient access to town, and abundant wildlife. The Bamboo Bungalow, nestled into the jungle, is clean and comfortable and comes fully equipped. Agua Vista provides the perfect combination of seclusion and accessibility.
The Bamboo Bunglaow is a teak one bedroom, one bathroom, casita with an equipped kitchen and wrap around porch. It is tucked into the jungle along the Montezuma River. That rushing sound you hear is the river roaring below you towards the famous Montezuma Waterfalls. From the porch you can soak in the view of the gulf and the parade of wildlife through the jungle canopy. The hot water indoor shower has a huge window open to the jungle canopy with peek a boo views to the ocean - it feels like showering in the jungle. The bungalow also comes with an outdoor shower nestled into the stand of bamboo next to the bungalow. Rustic, comfortable, cozy, and secluded.
The infinite edge pool is situated nearby and is available for use by all of our guests.
Interaction with guests
Khalida & Alex are available to assist with local information and tours and are on hand to take care of any issues related to the house.
We are located directly on the Montezuma River with 800 meters of river front and direct private access via well maintained trails. We have several very nice mini falls and dipping pools at our point on the river and a 10 minute walk down river will bring you to the top two falls of the famous Montezuma waterfalls. The third and final fall descends over 80 feet and is only safely accessed from below.
We are located approximately 2 km to both town and the beach, which is a 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk. Slightly more than half of this distance is on our driveway which is a winding dirt road through secondary forest. There are several hills along the way, the most notable one on the main road which is a long steep hill into Montezuma.
Though most of our guests do rent a car, approximately 40% do not and either rely on taxis or walking to get to and from town and the beach. If you do not plan on doing a lot of touring around, taking taxis can be more economical, if slightly less convenient. If you find after you arrive that you would like to rent a car, we can arrange this for you.
We are a Tico-Gringa couple who met here in 1993 and have two little monkeys of our own. He hails from neighboring Cóbano and she comes all the way from New Jersey, USA.
After living in The Big Apple for 9 years, we decided to move back to the 'ol hometown in 2006 so the kids could swap jungle gyms for the jungle, and we happily left computer maintenance and children's animated television behind!
Because of our bicultural heritage and our deep roots in the local community, we are able to provide you with an authentic Costa Rican experience that also respects the unique concerns of tourists from abroad.
Our four rental houses at Agua Vista are located in the lush hills above Montezuma, at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
We also have a new house to the market, Casa del Río, located along the same Montezuma River, but on a separate property. This house was completed in October of 2015 and is both for sale and for rent.
