|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The cottages and the house are made with love and knowledge what give them beauty and functionality. The ocean view is one of it´s kind, you got to come yourself to see that any photo would be able to do its justice, simple the view of the wide wide open see and the first touch of the horizon would eclipse and capture your senses like a spell drive.,
Mariposa Cabin: Mariposa was the first built on the property. The details on it, tells about our way of embracing life, our view of creation. The cabin has a little terrace right on the cliff ,welcoming the horizon and miles and miles of coastline.The sunrise awakes on the bed. Pelicans,frigate birds,falcons and other bird species indulge the sky day by day. Cheers !
Colibri Cabin: Colibri has a feeling of a tree-house type. It has a loft with a double bed. An individual bed is placed down. It has a deck in front and a terrace on the side, direct on the cliff surrounded by tree’s, making you feel like an eagle above the ocean. The terrace with a stone floor also comes with a hammock and a barbecue, it is also the access to the outdoor hot shower.
There is no obstacle in between you and the endless horizon. Further the ocean is 600 feet (200m) away from you ,so you can sleep being lulled by the waves. Enjoy it !
Geco Cabin: A wonderful cabin, with a wooden deck, ocean view and forest closeness that allows various birds and monkeys to visit you every day. It has a direct access to the swimming pool. Full equipped, cozy space for feeling just one with nature.
Art house; It is the main house on the property and has the best details of all, the pool is right in front. The view from the bedrooms are incredible and makes you feel sleeping above the pacific. The house has two double,three single beds and two full bathrooms. Two sweet people and children loving dogs are also included, on is a Lab with the name Luna and the other is a Schnauzer mix with the name estrella.
There are many more details,but it is up to you to discover them.
Our cottages and house are in an area blessed by the very first inhabitants: Chorotegas-Mangues,Borucas and Terrabas (C.R indigenas) that lived here and in the surroundings. Venerating their God ('Nenbithia') and Godess ('Nengui Tamali') to take care of the Cosmos. That sense of sacredness, peacefulness and meaningful encounter you could sense that truly took place in this area. In resume, It is well known and documented that the ancient Costarrican indigenous used to lived around here and cliff zones where specially appreciated by them.
On the other side, there is almost an endless row of natural attractions like waterfalls, tight pools,lagoons, beaches with a variety of different sands, Cabo Blanco Natural Park and natural reserves and much more.
The major hotels and condo companies haven’t reached this area till now, what keeps the area pretty virgin and natural without the problems other areas have to face now. For nature lovers or people who just wanna rest from their daily stress it is a great plus. Contact us for availability, thanks :) Peter and Rocio
Location: Delicias, the cliff of Montezuma is a high point on the Southern Peninsula of Nicoya. This is where you could find us awaked by the sunrise, 300 feet above Playa Manchas Azules. We are located 5 min. drive from the waterfalls ( 2 miles apart from downtown Montezuma). Montezuma can be reach by a fly charter to Tambor (30 min), by car, by Minibus or Local direct bus. Montezuma offers taxi services and Quad rentals.
We are about 15 to 30 min, to reach almost every top tourist destinations in our area such as: Mal pais, Santa Teresa, Cabuya, Cabo Blanco National Park, Tango Mar, Curu and Tambor. Montezuma is known for its natural treasures, with its bohemian touch and alternative activities: Yoga, Body-mind healers, dance, health food offers, massage, meditation, spiritual retreats, film festival and art gatherings among others.
We.....we appreciate life and we are grateful to be still around in a healthy way. Nature lovers, peaceful minded, love dogs as much as humans :) and all sentient beings. Play music and love dance. Followers of Buddhism as way of being present in this life. We are a couple made up, beside destiny, by our understanding of diversity. Peter an adventurous and visioner German, who left his country cause in the back of his mind since he was a child had the feeling of living abroad. Came to Costa Rica years ago and immediately, fell in love with the beauty of Costa Rica and with a sensitive Costa Rican woman, Rocio. She a former teacher of the University of Costa Rica, a dancer who has the privilege to achieve her master´s degree at Naropa University, in Boulder, Colorado. Comes from a family of a 'Zarzuela' and Operetta singer, and a well known oil painter. Visitors can enjoy his paintings that give life, color, meaningfulness and pour wonderful energy into this space and time container. Peter and Rocio blessed by the cosmos sculptured day by day a family of a 11 years old daughter and older son. A family, with an artistic eye that allow life to nurture them by being always grateful to the forces that compose their rhythm and drive in this trajectory of beingness.
Peter and Rocio Kahl purchased this cottage in 1996
We have chosen to live here, cause the first encounter with this place gave us the sense of such a peacefulness for having the lull of the ocean waves as a front neighbor nurturing our senses. Then, the stars without shyness getting out at night to wave at us. The sun touches carelessly the window with its big red face every morning. Seeing a full moon drawing a sparkly path on the skin of the ocean is like an illusion of reality or reality is an illusion? Come to hear the plays of the ocean and be a witness yourself of such a beautiful nature´sculpture. Researching that ancient Costa Rican indigenous inhabitants used to lived around, we honored them by having different icons that refer directly to their way of living and being. You would find those around.
This cliff location with a first line ocean view makes a plus hard to beat, only the frequency of your heart can beat it :) ! when being overtaken by such a gentle nature pulse. Beside, its very cozy and Feng Shui oriented. One has nature and privacy as a companion. The ocean is your closest viewer. It is quiet, safe, secluded, great for relaxation and has internet access. Here the breeze runs naked all year around, that is why the name of the town ('Las Delicias' = Delicious) cause the wind touches and embraces the visitors refreshing ones´ existence. Most of the material we used to give birth to this project were recollected for years ahead, in order to save antique windows, French doors and recycle wood floors and various wood structures. Some of the pieces come from early 1900´s. We worked very hard to restore them to be able to bring them into space again, bringing more Co2 to the planet, instead of letting them being burn or destroy, as originally planned by construction agencies. To round up the gorgeous warmness of the wood, we created spaces with mosaic designs to give a chance of any possible sensitive encounter. Come yourself to see that any photo would be able to do its justice, simple the view of the wide wide open see and the first touch of the horizon would eclipse and capture your senses like a spell drive.To really believe it you got to come here, you will not regret it.
I rarely write reviews, but I stayed in the Colibri cabin last year and have been meaning to post one ever since. Firstly, I would like to echo every other review posted online about this place, it is amazing. The location and view is the stunning and every photo I've seen cannot do it justice, you really need to experience it for yourself. Our hosts Peter and Rocia were fantastic, our baggage was lost by the airline and they went above and beyond our expectations and even directed the driver to our location to ensure we got it back in one piece. We only stayed for a few nights as we were doing a road trip around the country, but we could have easily stayed for a week or two, I can thoroughly recommend staying at Montezuma Heights for as long as possible!
I'm so sorry it has taken me 2 years to write this review. We were there in December of 2013, and it was perfect! The house was exactly as described. Peter and his family were wonderful hosts, I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quite secluded locations set away from the inner city of Montezuma. We did not rent a car and I am thankful we didn't, the roads are very steep. we rent an ATV and it was a lot of fun.
This was my second trip to stay in the Colibri cabin, which is a fantastic treehouse retreat from my normal busy, suburban life back home. After visiting in 2014, I decided I had to go return for a second year. Between the time to relax, the proximity of town making your stay more secluded, and the million dollar view, you are sure to have a relaxing time. Since last year, Peter has made great improvements in the cabins. As far as Colibri, there is a brand new refrigerator with a lot of space and new art. He showed me the new cabin (Geco) and also he made an outdoor tub for Mariposa. I was impressed. While I was there in 2014, he was working on finishing the pool, which I used in 2015. The pool and view is amazing! Peter, Rocio, and Natalie are very accommodating and fantastic hosts, as usual. I was glad for the opportunity to return spend time in the cabin as well as with the Kahl family. They are always up for great conversation and laughs.
You should stay in Colibri (or Peter’s other cabins) if you are looking for a place that is less commercial, more remote, and unique!
Die Ferienhäuser befinden sich auf einem großen Grundstück mit einem spektakulären 180 Grad Blick über den Pazifik. Ich durfte mir jedes Haus einmal anschauen und kann sagen, dass man in jedem der Häuser Privatsphäre genießt, sodass man nur die schönen Vogelgesänge und manchmal einen Brüllaffen-Schrei hört. Die Häuser sind kunstvoll mit viel Handarbeit und Stil erbaut und eingerichtet, sodass man sich auf Anhieb wohlfühlt. Das "Surferdorf" Montezuma, sowie die Küste mit den wunderschönen Stränden, befindet sich einen sportlichen Fußweg von den Ferienhäusern enfernt, den ich jeden Tag sehr gerne hin und zurück gelaufen bin. Je nach Form würde ich hier auch aufgrund des Klimas ein Auto oder Quad empfehlen. In Punkto Gastegeberqualtitäten übertrafen Peter und seine Familie alles bisher erlebte. Peter kennt sich hervorragend aus, sodass er bei Bedarf jederzeit wertvolle Tipps über Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants, und vieles mehr geben kann. Es war ein einzigartiger Urlaub, in dem ich mich absolut vom stressigen Alltag erholen, die Natur genießen und viel Energie auftanken konnte. Darüber hinaus bin ich sehr froh Peter und seine Familie kennengelernt zu haben und hoffe sehr, dass ich die Möglichkeit haben werde dieses Paradies erneut zu erleben.
I spent the early two weeks of January in the Colibri cabin and I have no words to express how amazing the view is from the cabin. I stumbled upon this cabin searching online; I’m not the type of person to stay in resort-style accommodations. I would describe the cabins as rustic and quaint. The views and experience are much more than can be captured in photographs. These are cabins Peter built by hand. Colibri had a very cool loft which overlooks the property on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other side. If you look down, you see Playa Los Cedros (I believe?), which is a very nice beach to go to while on your stay. I spent a lot of time in the hammock or deck chair reading books and enjoying the beautiful weather. At night a few geckos would sneak in and hang out on the ceiling! Also, from what I hear, this is one of the few places in Costa Rica with hot water for your shower!
Each day, Peter will offer to drive you and other cabin guests down to Montezuma, which is about a 5-10 minute drive. From there, I took a taxi up at night (go talk to Roger at Cabo Blanco Travelers between Mamatea and Chicos, since taxis seem to disappear after 6pm in Montezuma). A car isn’t necessary, as a taxi is only $10 up the hill. A few days, I walked into town, which takes about a half an hour (you see a lot of nature and get a little workout!). I recommend walking down before 8am or after 4pm because of the heat.
Peter and Rocio are very helpful and always are there to help and see if you need anything and always a few steps away if you needed something. Their daughter, Natalie, will help you with your poor Spanish speaking skills and tell you funny stories. They have two dogs, Luna and Stancha(?), which are very friendly and may come to visit. Peter is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you have about the area and any places you’d like to travel or tour. He can help point you in the right direction and tell you which ones might be better than other tours. I recommend taking a day or two to rent an ATV and travel to the Cabuya Isla Cementario at low tide, Cabo Blanco Reserve, and then visiting Mal Pais and Santa Teresa.
This place is a hidden gem and I can’t wait to go back. I wish I would have stayed longer considering the -80 degree difference in the weather I had to come back to! I feel as if I came for a vacation and left with a new family, thanks to the hospitality of Peter, Rocio, Natalie, and the puppies.
What a true Gem! This beautiful little cabin had the most gorgeous views in Costa Rica. Nothing beats waking up, making your own breakfast, and stepping out on to the balcony to watch the wales and take in the morning sun. Everything is perfect about this spot, from the hand built cabin, to the outdoor shower and amazing tile work, it's just wonderful.
Wildlife was right in our back yard too! Iguanas, monkeys, and all kinds of birds. We did have a few large bug encounters, but hey, it's Costa Rica.
It's about a 30 minute walk to town with some pretty serious hills, but we really enjoyed these daily walks. It helped to keep us in shape and you really get to see a lot of wildlife along the way. If you don't want to walk, Peter offers a ride to town every day and their are taxis in town for the ride back if needed.
This place is really worth it, a true GEM!
We are just 5 min ( 2 miles) by car from the best beaches and waterfalls in Montezuma.
Since, we are located on a cliff (300 feet above the ocean) the ocean view is like a dreamy drive and still that high, one could hear the ocean to get lull by it. You will wake up by the spectrum of orange red colors of the sunrise.
This area is well known for the richness and variety of its nature (beaches, cascades, rivers and forest), tourist services, eating sanctuaries diversity :) and for the easy going-nature oriented and peace loving community. Please contact us for availability. Thanks a lot :)
Other Activities: Organic market, Meditation, Animal watching, Art 'Chunches del mar', ('Fiestas, Cabalgata-Tope and Rodeo-local events').
