very peaceful neighborhood, dead end street, wake up to the sounds of nature, enjoy a walk in the big garden and swim in the nearby rivers....
the popular canopy Zipline tour is a 5 min walk from our house.
we recommend car rental as most convenient and independent transportation. You can also rent 4x4 quads in town or take taxis (ca. 6$ one way from town) If you like walking it's about 20 min to/from town.
no smoking inside the room please
Dagmar's rooftop room is absolutely gorgeous. As the pictures show, it is light, airy, clean, and relaxing. Dagmar was a wonderful host, offering advice on local restaurants, and helping us book taxis and transportation rentals. I would highly recommend her space to anyone staying in Montezuma.
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe this place! Just the build quality of the house goes far beyond any other house we've seen in Costa Rica.
Dagmar and her boyfriend are so friendly and hospitable, they made us delicious breakfast and Dagmar always offered us a lift when she went into town or back.
The bed is wonderful and we easily had the best sleep on our trip so far here. I know I'm probably repeating what everyone else here are also saying, so let me just say that I give it my highest recommendation and will surely stay here again.
If you are used to hiking and walking up stairs or steep hills, you'll have no trouble reaching her place on foot in about 20-30 minutes from Montezuma, otherwise a taxi from town will set you back around 3000 colones, at night you will need a flashlight as the roads are unlit but for the stars that you can look upon from the tiled roof of this truly special gem.
Beautiful location, extremely friendly support. Dagmar and the family were very approachable easy going. Make sure to have a way to get down to the beach, it's just outside walking distance. The rental car we brought did just fine. We arrived at night and had a tough time finding it, but other than that it was such a beautiful and relaxing stay! Would stay again with no hesitation. It's one of the prettiest locations we have been to yet!
We enjoyed Dagmar's great little rooftop nest. Daniel is a master designer/ builder, lots of nice details. We had our morning tea out on the roof with the morning birds. When you come up the hill from the beach the temperature at the house is about 10 degrees (F.) cooler, which is very welcome on a hot day. The view from the bed through the three open able glass walls is tropical jungle busy with different birds depending on the time of day. The toilet/ shower is placed so you are outside looking over the gardens and jungle but don't worry, you won't be exposed to anyone other than the local wildlife.
Dagmar's space is incredible. The house is nestled around a beautiful garden and the bedroom is atop a morrocan style home with much privacy. with windows on each wall you feel like you are outside. All the details were lovely. Dagmar and her partner Daniel could not have been more gracious hosts. I was able to take a yoga class with Dagmar and if you have the chance to do so she is a fantastic teacher. The smoothies were excellent and this was a highlight of the trip.
Dagmar and Daniel were fantastic hosts in this paradise hideaway. They were extremely welcoming, helpful and informative. The room is beautiful, nestled high in the hills of Montezuma it offers a super-peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town. We loved being surrounded by hummingbirds, monkeys and squirrels in their beautiful garden. It's best to have a car as it is a 5 min drive from town but we didn't and all worked out fine. Definitely rent a 4x4 for the day and explore the area. It was our favourite place of our two week trip!
The property that Dagmar and Daniel keep is beautiful and very well maintained. The single room has all the comforts of a nice hotel, but in the middle of their organic garden. We were served organic, and very well prepared, breakfast every morning with fresh coffee. We enjoyed hanging out with Dagmar and Daniel enough that we stayed in for most of the time rather than walking into town. To have privacy we simply walked upstairs to the 360 degree glass room that is surrounded by jungle. At night it was perfect for stargazing. The room is very comfortable, the bed is nice and the outdoor shower is great. We would recommend this to a couple or single traveler looking to enjoy a little countryside and have close proximity to town. Almost forgot to mention Dagmar’s great yoga studio in town. We dropped in and had a great workout.

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 the founder and director of Montezuma Yoga, where i teach yoga classes and run retreats all year, (website hidden)
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.
