EXQUISITE CRAFTSMAN-BUILT BEACHFRONT HOUSE; CABUYA/ MONTEZUMA, NICOYA PENINSULA.

Montezuma House Rental Photos and Description

House: 2 Bdrms, Kit, LR/Porch, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-5); Guest House available

The stunning Japanese style house, with its guest house, is located on the beach by the small fishing village of Cabuya. The sun rises directly in front of the house over the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Nicoya. Costa Rica’s first national wildlife reserve is located a short distance to the south, at the tip of the peninsula. Provisions are available in Cabuya, and several excellent local eateries provide a variety of cuisines. Montezuma,with its beautiful beaches, many restaurants and activities, is just three miles up the beach to the North. There are special spots to swim and explore between Montezuma and the Wildlife Reserve. Dos Iguanas was inspired by the clean and simple style of traditional Japanese architecture.The house is a sincere and successful expression of a natural philosophy that invites surrounding scenery into the living spaces. Your stay will most likely include a visit by the local tribe of howler monkeys. Ask about spillover space in our guest house.

Space: The main house has one large bedroom upstairs with a queen-size and a single bed. Downstairs is a kitchen, bathroom, eating area, and a second room with a single bed. Both houses offer views of the beach and sounds of the breaking waves. If the monkeys don't wake you, the birds will surely welcome you to your day.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Everything about Dos Iguanas was perfect. Beautiful location on the beach, living at the canopy level for close-on views of the troops of howlers and capuchins moving through on a daily basis, great birdlife, and comfortable hammocks for relaxing and watching it all. Cindy coming by to make sure everything was fine and share fun evening conversations was another treat. Blenders, fridges and coffee pots with great restaurants a walk down the road and a kitchen when we wanted to stay in. Rarely been anywhere where the people in town were so friendly. And the houses at Dos Igaunas are so beautifully built. The patios and hammocks and open dining with pass-through kitchens, the open upstairs with the sliding screens really made you feel part of the site. We rented both houses and the ability to move back and forth while still having great places for each of us to stay in was perfect. The two dogs that adopted us for the whole stay made it feel even more like somewhere we were living rather than visiting. The ability to hike in Cabo Blanco and Curu, and ride on the beach in the moonlight with Marvin from El Pinto just topped off the stay. Definitely a place to come back to.

FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Dos Iguanas is wonderful. Our family (four adults and three children) rented both houses for our vacation and had a really great time. The accomodations were very nice. The kitchen and linens were clean and well stocked. Being right on the beach was a lot of fun. Sean (the owner) was very helpful and responsive before our trip in helping us with our questions and planning. Cabuya is a great town, and we enjoyed being located centrally between Santa Teresa and Montezuma. The bakery in Cabuya is wonderful as well as the frozen fruitas at Jenny's Coyote Café. We would definitely stay here again.

TRANQUIL TROPICAL TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time at this Costa Rican gem of a property. We only wish we had planned to stay longer. Our days were filled with total relaxation in the comfort of the remarkably built beach house, exploring the natural splendor and listening to the abundant wildlife surrounding, cooking fresh local food, swimming at high tide and taking the time to soak in all the pure beauty.

We highly recommend this property and hope to return one day soon.

AN UNCOMMONLY BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

  • 5 of 5
The view of the shore, howler monkeys napping in the branches of the trees behind the house, the sun rising across the sea, all make for an exceptionally beautiful setting. The handsomely designed house with elegant Japanese wood joinery, sliding window shades, and a tiled outdoor dining area is all romantic and beautiful without being ostentatious. I spent hours and hours reading in the hammock, watching parrots, hummingbirds, and tanagers play around in the tree branches above. Sean has great taste and has built a great place. Excellent beaches, great ceviche, and great surfing are all a stone's throw away. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there."

WHAT A GREAT PLACE IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We spend one week in december in this wonderful house directly at the Pacific. We love the beautiful architecture. The house was very clean and cosy. The furniture and all the other stuff are in good style. In the big garden we saw a lot of animals.Of course the dos iguanas, beautiful birds and a monkey- family .We had very interesting trips in the surrounding. Thanks to Astrid for the friendly welcome. This is really a great place in paradise. Sean, thank you so much!!!

Notes:
If you are looking for a simple, pure but elegant style of living, away from the intrusions of TV, doorbells, unwanted phone calls and endless errands, Dos Iguanas will fit the bill. You will truly feel you have been AWAY. The living is al fesco; you may be visited by hummingbirds, parakeets or even toucans. An iguana or two will surely pass by as you dine on the porch. Here you are one with nature: there is no escaping it! Neighborhood fishermen will be glad to take you out to hunt your supper or bring back their fresh catch to you. In fact, they will even prepare your meal!. Homade jellies by Nena, from local fruits, are for sale at the nearby rivers' edge at Nena's home. Cabuya, just up the road, is a typical small Costa Rican village. There are Tico style restaurants, the local Cantina with Costa Rican Beer, a church, grocery store, a fabulous bakery and even a library. The first-ever National Park is down the road for your hiking pleasure.
