NEWLY REMODELED DECEMBER 2012: new bathrooms, new floors, plus lots of other upgrades. If renters loved us before (see our reviews), this upgrade will blow you away!

Chez Mu is nestled on a hilltop above Montezuma. The Villa offers tropical luxury at its finest. It has just been remodeled, with a new pool and modern furnishings. The Villa can accommodate a large family or several couples.

The home is in the middle of a lush 3+ acre property, which ensures absolute privacy and tranquility. White faced and howler monkeys, as well as parrots. hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds can be seen daily. The hilltop setting provides panoramic views of the jungle and ocean, as well as a steady and refreshing breeze (and no mosquitoes!).

Plenty of deck space near the pool could become the backdrop for a very special wedding party and is perfect for yoga.

It is only 5 minutes from downtown Montezuma (cozy town with amazing beaches), 15 minutes from Cobano (bank, doctor, supermarket) and 25 minutes from Malpais (incredible sunsets and surfing).

Chez Mu is the perfect honeymoon retreat, or tropical destination for your entire family!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Chez Mu is a beautiful home in a rugged, beautiful area. It is close to Montezuma but off the path enough to enjoy beautiful views, sounds of the jungle and enjoy the wildlife. The kitchen is well stocked with nice appliances and dishes. The bedrooms are air conditioned and the furnishings are basic, clean and comfortable. The house is well stocked with coolers and beach mats for a day at the beach. The deck area is amazing. It is better than the pictures. We loved getting up in the morning, listening to the monkeys, seeing the ocean and viewing birds from the gorgeous infinity pool. The pool is small but our family loved relaxing in the pool soaking in the view. The owners are responsive by email and the caretakers keep the property clean and are sweet and helpful. We cannot wait to come back!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Eric, thank you so much for accommodating our group of women. The place was just as advertised and within a few moments of our arrival we felt very much at home.

Carlos and his family were great hosts... We did the zipline, ATV's and horseback riding and of course the Montezuma shopping and beach were awesome!

We hope to be back soon!

A place to remember; beautiful home designed with taste

  • 5 of 5
Our hope during our visit to Costa Rica was to spend a family vacation during which we'd be able to rest and relax in a comfortable home. Chez Mu offered exactly what we were looking for: a beautiful home, an exquisite pool, and an irreplaceable ocean view. The house is away from it all while remaining close to the beach and the village nearby. I only wished we could have stayed longer...so I guess we will have to return.

Incredible Anniversary Get Away!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted something special for the occasion. We were looking for something relaxing but adventurous at the same time....and it was all of that and more.

The house was everything the description and photos portrayed. Loved hearing the sounds of the jungle but being able to see the ocean in the distance. Quiet and secluded but so close to anything we needed.

From the minute we emailed to check availability the owner was very helpful and accommodating. It was our easiest experience with VBRO so far, especially with payment. The caretakers were wonderful and so patient with our rusty Spanish and very accommodating with our schedule.

We loved using the house as home base and took day trips that were recommended in the incredible vacation guide provided by the owners.
We rented a 4x4 vehicle in San Jose and loved the adventure of traveling around and exploring on our own.

The wireless internet was great and we were able to watch our daughter's 1st collegiate Field Hockey game from the house.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country and we had a wonderfully memorable week at this villa! We have recommended it over and over to our friends and family and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation.

Worth Every Penny

  • 5 of 5
We are a young group of seven from different parts of the U.S. and we visited Montezuma at the beginning of April. Chez Mu made the trip across the bay well worth it. From the minute we made contact with Eric the process was extremely easy. He guided us right through the booking process, answered all questions we had promptly, and made the vacation great. Chez Mu is everything you see in the pictures. Great views from the awesome pool. Full kitchen set up. Short drive or 1/2 mile walk from town. Cleaning lady was very nice and mindful.

The wild life was abundant, we even saw a couple monkeys in the trees above the house.

We strongly recommend this house. We had the same concerns you do, we didn't want to be ripped off by the internet scammers. You never really know what you're getting until you get there. But this place is the real deal. And making the payments was straight forward with no hassles or issues. It slept seven of us comfortably, and it would've slept eight easily.

Thanks for everything, Eric. This was an awesome vacation.

Great Villa, Great Value and Love Montezuma

  • 5 of 5
My wife and our 3 kids (6 years, 3 years and 1 years) stayed for a week and loved the villa and the whole Montezuma experience.

The place was as advertised on the website and through e-mail conversations with the owner, except that the washer didn't work, but the cleaner who lives in the house below the Villa was happy to do a load of laundry when ever we asked and we tipped her a little something extra.

The external doors didn't lock, but with the safes in each room for valuables we felt perfectly comfortable, especially that the gardener/cleaner couple lived in the house below the villa and were always around.

A house book is provided by the owner which is loaded with lots of directions, local information and recommendations on restaurants - the information was very accurate and useful. We had a GPS map purchased through one of the links in the house book - and using the coordinates provided by the owner it was no issue finding the villa even after dark.

We enjoyed the Montezuma waterfalls, Curu Wild life park, Cabo Blanco wild life park (look up Gerald at cabo blanco travelers.com his tour booth is downtown Montezuma, he was an awesome tour guide and great with the kids), horse back riding (again Gerald hooked us up with a private family horseback riding our) Tortouga Island and touring Mal Pais/Santa Teresa.

We would use this villa again and definitely stay in Montezuma again - there are many excellent restaurants.

Montezuma is one of the favorite beach towns in Costa Rica, building on it's distinctive local and hippie character. For years, this remote village and its surrounding beaches, forests and waterfalls have enjoyed near-legendary status among backpackers, UFO seekers, hippie expatriates, and European budget travelers. Although it maintains its alternative vibe, Montezuma has emerged as a great destination for all manner of travelers looking for a beach retreat surrounded by stunning scenery and world class ammenities. An Italian influence can be felt in the outstanding restaurants in the area. Active pursuits abound, from hiking in the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve to horseback riding to a beach-side waterfall. The house itself is also walking distance to a Canopy (zip-line) Tour and a Butterfly Farm.
