Montezuma House Rental Photos and Description

main house 1 BR 1 BA -second house 1 BR 1 BA - sleeps 4

Since dec 2014 we work with a solar grid system for electricity. Hot water comes from a solar heater. Come and enjoy !

This lovely property is located on the cliffs above Playa Cedros. The large 22000 m2 lot ensures our guests complete privacy while not being isolated from other homes in the area. There are two homes on the property, ideal for friends and families with older children. The main house is a large studio with 1 queen bed, bathroom and kitchen. Living and dining areas are outside. It offers a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill.

The second house is about 30 feet from the main house. It has a bedroom upstairs with a queen bed. The sink, toilet and rustic outdoor shower are on the first floor. Both houses back a wildlife corridor. Monkeys, iguanas, and agouti abound… There are many native fruit trees for our guests to enjoy. Ocean breezes keep the homes comfortable. 4X4 recommended.

Cabo Blanco National Park and the little town of Cabuya are just 4 km to the South - Cabuya is a great base for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing, wildlife watching and everything nature lovers are looking for. Montezuma is 3 km North and offers many restaurants and shops. You are minutes from one of the best beaches in our area. Playa Cedros is known for its' long surf break. Rio Cedros is a short distance away with a fresh water lagoon and waterfalls up river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr Berger,



We really enjoyed our vacations in your house.

It's a real paradise.

We loved the view on the sea, be in the jungle, watch the animals and refresh ourselves in the pool.

Everything has been well thought for the comfort and the pleasure.

Our friends loved the place as much as we did.

Congratulations for the choice of the spot....

We may come back....



Best regards,

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were on our honeymoon and could not have selected a better destination than Casa Joachim and Costa Rica. We found our stay very relaxing with terrific views. Casa Joachim is secluded, very private and secure. The grounds are well cared for and you can tell there is a pride of ownership. Joachim and his property manager Leanne were very accommodating. They shared great tips and advise prior to and during our stay, and were always accessible to answer our questions. You do a need 4X4 to access this property and in general for this part of Costa Rica.

This home is very beautiful and is surrounded by a large deck overlooking fantastic views of the jungle and ocean. The property has lots of fruit trees, flowering trees and plants. Our favorite is a tree that blooms during the evening that gives off the scent of Channel No 5.

There is abundant wildlife at Casa Joachim. We were greeted every day by howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, agoutis and iguanas. There were two troops of monkeys that liked to hang out in the trees surrounding the property that had lots of babies so that was fun to see.

Our daily routine was to get out and enjoy one of the many wonderful activities that Costa Rica offers, e.g., hiking in Cabo Blanco, snorkeling at Tortuga Island, hiking to Cemetery Island, fishing and visiting the surrounding towns and beaches. Afternoons were reserved for coming back home to Casa Joachim and enjoying our beautiful, private pool with a cool refreshment.

One thing that surprised us that is worth mentioning is the great food. The restaurants were high quality, the bakeries and fresh fruit were out of this world.

We can't say enough about our stay at Casa Joachim - highly recommended. We will definitely be back to visit Costa Rica and Casa Joachim.

Your own Garden of Eden.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Joachim is truly a little piece of paradise. We stayed this year again for 3 weeks just like last year and have already booked our stay for next year. The location of the property is amazing. You overlook the ocean and can hear the waves crashing on the beach. The property is surrounded by jungle which gives it total privacy. Lots of wildlife, mainly monkey's pass through the garden. The pool is a nice size and very refreshing. We love the total privacy of Casa Joachim and the peacefulness of the place and consider it a little Garden of Eden. The house is clean and well build. Joachim, the owner, takes great pride in his property and the house, garden and pool are well maintained. Last year, we have a few suggestions for improvement, and all were taken care off. The kitchen is small but functional and has everything you need. We love cooking and so cooked everyday some awesome meals there. You do need a 4x4 to get to the house. Both the manager Leanne and Joachim are very helpful and will make sure you will have a memorable stay. Highly recommended.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The property was in excellent condition. The view and location were both amazing.

Right on the monkey superhighway so wildlife in abundance. The road to the house had been recently resurfaced so while you need a 4x4 it is a straightforward drive.

All in all, fabulous!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. The house was clean and very comfortable. So nice to have the windows and doors open the whole week we were there. The pool was clean and warm, with a great view of the ocean. The manager, Leanne, was very helpful and friendly. The owner, Joachim, happened to be in the area so it was great to meet him. We appreciated his offer to help with any problem we had (which was none). It was obvious that he takes pride in his property and it showed from the decor and the maintenance.

Definitely would stay here again and we highly recommend it.

Peaceful, private, Garden of Eden with ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Casa Joachim for 3 weeks and were in need of a real restful and peaceful vacation. Casa Joachim was perfect for us. I would describe the property as a honeymoon suite surrounded by jungle walls, sounds and sights, with ocean view, a private garden and a private pool. There is no need for any clothing due to the private location. Sleeping with the windows open allows the air to cool down at night, brings the jungle sounds into your room and lets you fall asleep with the sound of the crashing ocean waves below. Leanne the property manager, and her husband, are fabulous. They are so friendly and always ready to help and solve any problems. Leanne told us from which local fisherman to buy fish and when and where the farmers markets were. We did not go out for dinner once, but cooked every evening the most fantastic meals with local fish and local vegetables and herbs (we love cooking :-). The kitchen is small and modest, but has all the essentials to cook fabulous meals. The BBQ is fantastic. The bathroom is nice with a great shower and the bed is comfortable. The property is clean and well maintained. The pool is big and deep enough to swim laps and the ocean view from the pool is magical, especially on full moon evenings. The sunrises are spectacular. The setting of the surrounding jungle on one side and ocean on the other and the calming sounds of nature will be loved by anyone who is comfortable in nature, but can be overwhelming at night for hard core city folk. We saw many howler and white face monkeys some just a few yards away and named the big male Iguana who kept us company during the day, Igy. The pictures on the site do not do justice to the magnificent views and setting. You do need a 4x4 vehicle to get there. The location is ideal between the hippie town of Montezuma and the laid back Tico town of Cabuya.This is a dream property for nature loving honeymooners, honeymoon anniversaries or couples looking for a peaceful, private place. We called it our private Garden of Eden and plan to return next year. Highly recommended.

Everything about the experience was delightful

  • 4 of 5

This house was ideal for our purposes. Our group included us -- a Canadian couple in our 60s -- and our son and his girlfriend in their thirties. We are huge travellers and almost always rent self-catering houses. We spent a week at Joachim's house over New Year's. Everything about the experience was delightful. Communications with Joachim and his house manager Leanne were reliable, responsive and informative. Leanne met us as promised and escorted us to the house, and then spent a good long time with us, giving us a thorough orientation and lots of tips about the area; and then she followed up by email a couple of times with extra information. We followed her recommendations for day trips and restaurants and they were right on. When the barbecue broke, she had it fixed the next day. Everything else worked.

The fact that there are actually two houses, each with its own bathroom, makes it ideal for two couples. We spent lots of time together on the wonderful terrace but then were able to have privacy whenever we felt like it. The big house has a king-sized bed, the kitchen and terrace. The little house is basically a bedroom with a bathroom. Both houses are basically furnished but adequate. The terrace is large and very well furnished. We loved being able to simply lean over the railing and watch a wide variety of forest animals, including howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, iguanas and others forage within 20 feet of us.

We also loved frequent dips in the pool, bird watching, and getting daily exercise walking down the hillside stairs to the beach, and back up again!

But most of all we loved the privacy and the silence of the property. We were there for New Year's Eve. Montezuma (which is about 5 km north of the house) was bedlam, but up on the property we had a bird's eye view of the bay, the fireworks and the stars. It was perfectly peaceful. On New Year's Eve, we cooked ourselves a sumptuous meal, welcomed the new year and counted our blessings that we weren't in Montezuma. New Year's Day we lounged in hammocks, read books and drank delicious Haitian rum!

This is not a five-star resort, so if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere. But it is a gorgeous, well-maintained property with ecologically sound structures and it has everything it needs. We would highly recommend it for its simple efficiency, for the property and views, for being well-managed, and for the privacy. It is excellent value for the price.
