We had a truly unique experience at Casa Jule, though I would caution this place is for nature and wilderness lovers, not the squeamish. We were travelling with our kids, age 4 and 5, and they saw more wildlife on the property than our entire stay in Costa Rica, including multiple types of monkeys, gigantic iguanas, large rodent type things, coatis, huge beetles, a tarantula, lizards, and incredibly beautiful birds, butterflies and humming birds. We had the misfortune of getting there at the same time as a swarm of 'army ants' (google them, somewhat scary), but they were mostly gone by the first evening, and this is not a common occurrence, from our understanding.
Sleeping in the outdoor bedroom was a wonderful way to feel close to nature, and we enjoyed waking to the howler monkeys.
While we enjoyed our stay, and knew what we were getting into, there are a few things about the property which should be considered before booking. First, the stairs are quite steep. Our kids were great about being cautious on them, but it could be an issue for some families. Also, the house is deep in the jungle, and it got extremely hot. We stayed during rainy season, but even though it rained heavily in the evenings, there was no breeze travelling through the house. There is one fan on the third floor, but the house could use a few more. It was too hot for us to cook meals there. It was pleasant in the evenings, after the sun went down, but we found a need to leave during the day.
Overall, the experience was quite enjoyable, and one of the most memorable places we've stayed in Costa Rica. The house is extremely beautiful, and trippy. It would be a fantastic place for an adventurous couple, friends, or families with older children to stay in Costa Rica.
Thomas and his girlfriend were our hosts for our 4-night stay in Montezuma and they were so friendly and helpful during our whole stay, from making sure we arrived and found the place ok, to checking out and saying our goodbyes till next time. Upon arriving at the place, the fairytale began and you couldn't help but feel like you just walked into a storybook with the magical realism this place conveys. It was definitely the most unique place we stayed at and was such a fun experience to stay in and call home for a brief few days. It is the perfect place to find seclusion away from everything as it is tucked away into an enclosure of greenery with forest behind you and mango, papaya, and banana trees all around you. The place is even bigger and more beautiful than the pictures and we were so amazed. Like a lot of reviews, it is perfect for couples. The kitchen was fully stocked and clean so it was perfect for cooking a meal on the first night we got in, as well as a breakfast or two. Eating out on the patio was so peaceful and serene. We loved watching the thunderstorms at night from the bedroom through the beautiful door-windows since your are among the trees, and also at the cute secluded beach a 5 minute walk away from the house literally across the street which was so beautiful. Watch the thunderstorms at night on the beach if you can, so memorable! We loved listening to and seeing all the howler monkeys in the morning and night because we thought they sounded hilarious and they are all around the house in the mango trees. We also saw a lot of lizards, an iguana, coatis, and those cute animals that look like giant guinea pigs around the house just wandering around. At night the stars are gorgeous and if you go outside and flash a flashlight for a few seconds you can see some of the fireflies flash back to you! It was so amazing to feel so immersed in nature while still being so comfortable and close to towns in such a unique and beautiful enchanting house. It is not far from Montezuma and Cabuya which are just short drives away left or right, both of which are cool towns to check out (but definitely need an SUV or 4x4 to get around as roads are super bumpy). Thomas is such a fun and awesome guy, we even went on a hike with him and his friend at night to search for bio-luminescent worms and mushrooms in the forest! So if you want to relax, have fun, experience something totally unique and beautiful in nature, and meet nice people, this is your place. And go eat at The Bakery Cafe in Montezuma! That was our favorite spot that often gets overlooked with an amazing Tico Rico smoothie and Ginger Macademia fish filet! :)
Wir haben 3 Nächte in dem Haus verbracht und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Da das Haus von Natur umzingelt ist, kann man sehr viele wilde Tieren hören und beobachten. Wenn aber Tiergeräusche und Insekten einem Angst einjagen ist dieses Haus nicht die beste Wahl! Der Strand ist nah genug um dorthin zulaufen. Vielen Dank an Thomas und Beatrice (Die Grundstück Managers) für Ihre Hilfsbereitschaft und Freundlichkeit! Es war eine sehr schöne Erfahrung.
Une maison magnifique et très originale comme dans mes attentes une belle chambre ainsi qu'une grande salle de bain le tout sur trois étages.. l'endroit est merveilleux , beaucoup de végétations, d'animaux et d'insectes !!! Une belle expérience. L'accueil était parfait, Montezuma est un village super cool pas loin de réserves naturelles, de spot de surf et de baignade... Le rêve .. Merci pour tout
Staying in this beach jungle house was quite a unique and breathtaking experience. The beach at the end of the driveway is better than the one in Montezuma and during high tide the locals come out and put on a surf show. The house is conveniently located between Montezuma and Cabuya (the bakery in Cabuya is a must!). The house looks just like it does in the pictures and the hosts Beatrice and Thomas are very nice and accommodating. The house is open so be prepared to encounter wildlife and use the fans in the house since there is no AC, packing some extra bug spray won't hurt!
This place is as great as it looks! My sister, partner and I had an amazing time! We loved hanging out in the hammocks and watching monkeys and birds. The location is perfect - definitely would be difficult without a car though. The beach is a close walk away but any town (cabuya, montezuma, Santa Teresa) required some driving. Lots of people rented ATVs which would also work. We went end of the dry season so it was HOT and difficult to sleep in past 8am. Which was fine because we had plenty to do. Thank god for the two fans though. Thomas was delightful and very helpful in finding the place. He picked my sister up from a cafe in montezuma and was willing to help us find it while driving. I would come back again!
Guest 1) This place is absolutely perfect. Not far from Montezuma and many, many activity’s (snorkelling, horseback riding, amazing hiking, beach’s, very good restaurants, fishing, etc.). In the heart of the jungle you’ll be amazed by the sounds that surround’s you and the birds who wake’s you up in the morning. Very nice hosts too. Just ideal!
Guest 2) The location is ideal, close to the beach and Montezuma, but far enough from it and the road to be quiet and to leave you surrounded by the beauty of the jungle. The widely open bedrooms allow you to slep under the stars, to hear the birds and see the monkeys passing by in the trees. Very safe, very well designed, it is a real wonderful place to be. You'll never want to leave...
