Very nice place. Remember your in the jungle and on a roof. So it's very hot. You'll also see an occasional beetle since the windows are open and no ac

We spend 3 nights at this beautiful place, the pictures can't transmit the reality of this place, it is a real paradise hidden there. The room was clean, also the bathroom and all the areas of the house, the furniture is beautiful and we though several times that we were in a really deluxe place so impressive to be an AirBnb. Daniel was our host as Dagmar was on trip, he was a terrific host and gave us the tips and place to go in there and really enjoy Montezuma. We highly recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get there also in order to visit near places as the roads are all dirt. Thanks for all guys and hope get back soon.

We did not end up staying here, as the hosts did not show up at the appointed times to meet us. The room had not been cleaned and was as hot as could be and stuffy. Unfortunately because the room was not clean we could see the underlying stains and bugs and felt it was not at all representative of the listing we had seen. Also the location did not seem to provide any relief from the heat and was dusty. Our experience was terrible, but hopefully they will address some of these issues for the future. We ended up staying at Amor de Mar, a local hotel which we highly recommend as a much better value and right on the water, romantic and scenic.

Response from Dagmar:
Dear Kim, due to my travel to Europe i mixed up your arrival date and the room was not ready as planned upon your arrival. I apologized for the inconvenience and fully refunded your money, so i might say that leaving us such a bad review seems not fair. No room is pretty when it's not cleaned and prepared for new guests and as you can read in all our other positive reviews people do love the artist loft very much and do not report of any bugs or too much heat after spending a few days with us. so to be honest i don't think you can judge the value of the room by just taking a quick look into it when it wasn't prepared. It probably wasn't meant for you to stay with us and i am glad you found another place you enjoyed. Not sure if it's necessary to try to spoil the experience for fellow travelers.

My best friend and I stayed at Dagmar's villa for a week and it was more than we could have ever imagined it to be. The location is absolutely stunning and I would honestly recommend it to anyone who wants a incredibly beautiful and peaceful trip to Costa Rica. Dagmar was absolutely incredible. She helped us with all of the questions we had and made us feel so much at home. It truly was a trip of a lifetime.

if you're going to stay anywhere in montezuma, this is the place. staying at dagmar's beautiful rooftop retreat was such a beautiful experience! her & daniel were so easy to get along with & talk to, and it was so comfortable being around the property. the property is tucked away in the jungle up the mountain, just a few minutes drive to montezuma's quaint, lively town & gorgeous beaches. she was so gracious and welcoming, accepting my same day reservation with open arms (as it was a convenient time). the first day i arrived, monkeys were in the trees playing & frolicking about. the room is comfortable & bright, very private, and had everything i needed, including a refrigerator. one of my favorite parts was taking showers outside overlooking her colorful garden, with birds & butterflies flying by. at night, you could see every star in the sky and it was lovely having the windows & doors opened catching nice breezes & moonlight. although i was alone, it was quite romantic being there :) i booked a private yoga session with dagmar, and she was very attentive, and took the time to understand my yoga intentions & background & helped me a lot with form & posture. her passion for yoga is quite evident, i even took another class at her studio, montezuma yoga, with ocean views. i left her class feeling blissful & left her home feeling rested & light hearted. i'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay there and to have met dagmar & daniel.

Originally from Germany i moved here after living in Los Angeles and New York in 2001. It was always my dream to live in a sunny tropical country. I love the simplicity of life here, the climate and of course the abundant nature! I never get bored of all the birds, waterfalls and monkeys!!!

I am sharing my life with Daniel Gautschi, also known as GAUDAN, a very wonderful, creative man who loves nature, creating art and paintings and who also plays the magical instrument called HANG. Together we love to travel and share our yoga classes with people all over the world, we feel both very blessed to have such inspiring & happy lives and look forward to meeting you.
