This lovely property is located on the cliffs above Playa Cedros. The large 22000 m2 lot ensures our guests complete privacy while not being isolated from other homes in the area. There are two homes on the property, ideal for friends and families with older children. The main house is a large studio with 1 queen bed, bathroom and kitchen. Living and dining areas are outside. It offers a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill.
The second house is about 30 feet from the main house. It has a bedroom upstairs with a queen bed. The sink, toilet and rustic outdoor shower are on the first floor. Both houses back a wildlife corridor. Monkeys, iguanas, and agouti abound… There are many native fruit trees for our guests to enjoy. Ocean breezes keep the homes comfortable. 4X4 recommended.
Cabo Blanco National Park and the little town of Cabuya are just 4 km to the South - Cabuya is a great base for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing, wildlife watching and everything nature lovers are looking for. Montezuma is 3 km North and offers many restaurants and shops. You are minutes from one of the best beaches in our area. Playa Cedros is known for its' long surf break. Rio Cedros is a short distance away with a fresh water lagoon and waterfalls up river.
be nice, be carefull with all - you see and find there, enjoy your stay
I spent two weeks road tripping around Costa Rica with my girlfriend before arriving at Joachim's magical place for our final 4 best days of the trip. This place is truly amazing, we felt totally relaxed the minute we arrived. The property manager Thomas and his wife were very helpful and cool and got us nicely setup for our stay. They offered great local knowledge, and were very on the ball. We were greeted by large group of whiteface monkeys passing by the house as we pulled up to check in, they passed by the house a couple of times a day including howler monkeys which were very amusing and a joy to watch while having a morning coffee. This property is very private while being close enough to the great coastline and Montezuma. The place is well kept everything is great order including good wifi. It was hard packing up and leaving we would of loved to have stayed longer in this paradise. I highly recommend this place, it exceeded our expectations proving better than the pictures. Book it!
This location was gorgeous! My friend and I holed up for five days of pool-time, lounging, hiking and cooking. The caretaker kindly met us in downtown Montezuma and drove us up to the house - he even took us to the grocery store first in order to stock up. There was plenty of space, gorgeous ocean views, and beautiful birds and sweet-faced monkeys to spy on. I highly recommend this location for anyone in need of detaching from the world at large. You will leave utterly at peace.
This was one of the best things we did in Costa Rica.
Leanne was really helpful, sent us detailed instruction on getting the ferry and how to meet up. She and Ron met up with us in Montezuma to show us the route and around the property.
Between the rutted roads (you don't want to do that drive more than you have to) and likelihood that power/internet will go out at some point, it felt a bit like camping at times. But being able to cook a great meal and look out over your personal expanse of jungle and ocean was spectacular.
Lors de la planification de notre voyage de rêve au Costa Rica, le Stunning Ocean View à Montezuma fût un de nos coups de cœur ! La résidence fait rêver et donne le goût de vivre au Costa Rica ! L'aspect Grandiose et Privé de la résidence, la piscine et la fontaine avec vue sur la mer, le balcon donnant sur la Jungle sans oublier la présence de nos amis les singes hurleurs ont fait de notre séjour chez Joachim un séjour paradisiaque ! Joachim ainsi que Leanne ont été des plus serviables lors de la planification ainsi qu'à l'arrivé dans la Péninsule de Nicoya !
La résidence est huché au sommet d'une falaise ce qui rend son cachet encore plus spéciale ! Il est certain qu'un 4X4 est à 100% nécessaire pour s'y rendre mais ça vaut la conduite !
Que vous soyez en couple ou en famille ce choix est sans doute un des meilleur qualité/prix pour la région !
Quoi dire de plus que WOW et Merci à Joachim de nous avoir donné la chance de vire une telle expérience Inoubliable et d'avoir contribué à notre amour pour le Costa Rica !
Pura Vida !!!

While planning for our trip to Costa Rica, the Stunning Ocean View in Montezuma was one of our Highlight’s ! The house is dreamy and makes you want to move to Costa Rica! The architecture of the house and the landscape are absolutely amazing, I felt like I was in a movie :) ! The spectacular and private feel (no one but no one can see you), the view from the ocean from the pool, the balcony looking out into the jungle without forgetting about our friends the howler monkeys made our stay at Joachim's house Unforgettable and super romantic !
The presence of fruit trees such as: Oranges, Mangoes, Star Fruit, Coconuts, Lime and Banana’s: OH MY GOODNESS WOW !
Joachim and Leanne were very helpful for the planning and beyond our arrival in the Nicoya Peninsula!
The fact that the house is at the top of a hill makes it even more special! You definitely need a 4X4 to get up there but it’s worth the drive !
If you’re a couple or family this place is probably one of the best value for your money in the area !
Thanks again to Joachim for giving us the possibility to live such a experience and contributing to our love for Costa Rica !

Leanne was amazing! She was so kind and helpful and quick to respond to any questions I may had prior to leaving and also while in CR. Thanks for everything Leanne - Pura Vida!!
Very nice and relaxing place, the kitchen is very well equipped, and surroundings and the view are great. Leanne the property manager was very nice and sweet.
The property it's beautiful. Great views to the ocean, forest, and wonderful monkey action..it's very secluded and private, the host was charming, and great knowledge about the area. It's a drive!! From cabuya or montezuma, however we did enjoy it. The property was fully equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed the refreshing pool, we wished the waterfall in the pool worked. We also enjoyed the wild life at night time. We recommend this property to anybody who's looking for a clean, private and peaceful place yet adventurous, lovely, spectacular views. Thanks Joachim and Jeanine ...PURA VIDA.
