Overview

Montezuma Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 5

'Villa Playa Cabuya' is a true tropical paradise near the quiet fishing village of Cabuya.This spacious Mediterranean style home with artistic touch is located 40 meters of your small 'private' sandy beach with no direct neighbors. What make this place unique is the perfect mix of high quality ingredients. We believe than being alone on a quality beach (good and easy swim), bordering a wildlife* full garden, in a well build house equipped in a area full of activities is something rare. With the house we try to provide the best welcome service and numerous options*. Last but not least, there is quality little restaurants in the village.

* see below

Visit the vibrant beach town of Montezuma with it's nightlife, bars and restaurants only 7 km from here or ride to the endless beaches of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa, famous for their world class Surf and sunset.

Things to do around Cabuya: Being the gateway to the wonderful Cabo Blanco Reserve, Cabuya offers a wealth of natural sites to discover. It's great for hiking, beach combing and bird watching. The Rio Lajas with its natural swimming holes and Jacuzzis is ideal on the hot days and for a refreshing rinse-off after sunbathing. Cabuya Island with its cemetery is another place not to be missed especially if you are looking for a good snorkel spot.

There are a couple of real good restaurants in Cabuya, best choice of them is the bakery or 'Panaderia' on the road towards the park.

Getting around: There's a road from the intersection of Cabuya that leads you directly to Mal Pais and Santa Teresa with its beautiful never ending beaches and breathtaking sunsets. The road is usually good in the dry season but can become a problem after heavy rains as there's at least one river to cross. Best to go by 4x4 vehicle or quad.

Montezuma town: Montezuma lies just 7km from the house. The road passes at the surfer's beach Playa 'Los Cedros' and the beautiful Playa 'Las Manchas'. Montezuma offers a wide range of national and international restaurants, souvenir shops, bars and tour offices where you can choose between many attractive activities such as canopy, horse back riding, boat trips and more.

There's a farmers market at 10am every saturday in the park.

Guestbook comments from the manager

THE HOUSE WAS PERFECT! JO AND MARIA WERE VERY WELCOMING AND HELPFUL DURING MY STAY. THE HOUSE IS SITUATED ON BEAUTIFUL BEACH THAT LOOKS OUT ONTO CABUYA ISLAND, WHICH YOU CAN WALK OUT TO AT LOW TIDE. THE BACKYARD IS WONDERFULLY SHADY, WITH ALMOND AND MANGO TREES AND TWO HAMMOCKS THAT ALLOW YOU TO ENJOY THE SHADE THE PEACE AND THE OCEAN AT THE SAME TIME! THE HOUSE ITSELF IS BEAUTIFULLY CONSTRUCTED WITH A SPACIOUS PORCH, A LARGE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM, AND A BEAUTIFUL BATHROOM OFF THE MAIN BEDROOM. IT IS LOCATED ONLY A HALF OF A MILE FROM CABUYA, A QUIET FISHING VILLAGE WHERE THE FISH ARE SO FRESH. MONTEZUMA IS ONLY 3.5 MILES AWAY WHERE THE NIGHT LIFE AND BEACHES ARE SPECTACULAR. THE ONLY BAD THING ABOUT THIS VACATION WAS THAT IT HAD TO END. OLI IS A VERY KIND AND GRACIOUS LANDLORD AND HIS HOUSE MATCHES HIM PERFECTLY.

The perfect house for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Myself,my husband and our 2 young boys ages 5 and 8 spent 12 fabulous days at this home. There was an amazing amount of privacy. We had many wonderful mornings eating a slow breakfast and watching the beautiful birds and multiple iguanas fly and run about the property. Each morning 2 blue birds would try to take our pineapple and the iguana that slept on the roof would jump from the roof into the bush by the table where my 5 yr old son would feed him flower blossoms. It was as though they were our vacation pets and we grew quite fond of them. The home is peaceful and serene with the sound of waves constantly crashing just outside. The location of the home was perfect for us. Cabuya is smaller and quieter than Montezuma, yet just a short drive away. After a busy day in Montezuma it was so nice to come "home" to the Villa, make dinner, listen to music and just enjoy. Elik was always available and wonderful to work with, checking in to make sure we were comfortable and to see if we needed anything. We loved our stay here and hope to return.

Great house, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a week in this great house. We really liked the location.

The beach area is just yards from the front door and was nice to walk on. We walked out to Cabuya Island one morning when the tide was low, a great walk. When the tide is out you can walk a long way on the beach in either direction and probably see no one. Be aware that the area off the beach is rocky tidepools and not really suited to swimming. We drove over the shortcut road to Santa Teresa area for swimming. Some fantastic beaches on that side of the point!

Tony was the property manager and did a great job getting us what we needed (a blender, some towels, and extra dishes). He and his girlfriend were really a delight to talk to and gave us some great hints about the area.

Rio Lajas was just up the road a bit and was amazing! Super clear water with fish and wildlife all around. The water clarity was definitely related to rainfall as on the day we left it had rained hard in the night and the river was like coffee. Good swimming at the river mouth.

One of Tony's friends, Matthew, has set up a huge 'hammock' made of fishing net suspended over the back yard. This is really cool, like a hammock for 25 people! It was a blast to climb up into it and lay under the almond tree watching the howler monkeys eat almond fruit right over head! We saw them on 3 different occasions during our stay. The kids had a blast laying in and flopping around in the massive hammock!

Another plus was the internet connection with WiFi router. Prior to our stay, hadn't been able to check mail or contact people back home and it was great to have.

The road the house is on is pretty rough, especially north. They were working on

There are bugs, geckos, and small crabs about, often in the house. They didn't bother us aside from the geckos chattering at night. We chased the crabs out, and lived with the ants and geckos. Don't leave food around the the ants don't bother. We did have a couple raccoons stop by and knock the outside trash cans over 3 times. I would go out and hiss at them and they always ran off and didn't come back again that night. It would be really hard to keep them away permanently.

Cabuya is a very small town, just a couple sodas, a bar and two small grocery stores. It had everything we needed and we liked it. We mostly cooked at the house and didn't eat out much. The bakery had a GREAT breakfast and we also got pizzas there on Friday night. Very good!

Loved our stay and the house was great!

A visit to paradise

  • 5 of 5

We visited the paradise for a period of three weeks and it was amazing! The house itself as well as the beautiful backyard invite you to "tranquilo" (relax) like the ticos in Costa Rica would describe it. You can find various plants and animals in the backyard like a raccoon family, a skunk, monkeys, an opossum and much more. The ocean view from the terrace was breathtaking every day.

The house provides enough space for 4 adult people. Two big bedrooms and a nice master bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped so we cooked nearly ever day by our own.

Within a 10 minutes drive you reach Montezuma, a very colorful town with its bars and restaurants. In Cabuya itself you can find a very good bakery, the small supermarket "Super David" and a very nice and tasty restaurant directly located on the opposite of the supermarket "Super David". You should also visit the Cabo Blanco national park. We saw coatis, anteaters and various birds. The drive from the house to Cabo Blanco takes about 5 minutes. If you like to surf in Costa Rica you also just have to drive about 15-20 minutes to Mal Pais, Santa Teresa or Playa Hermosa. All of them are very good for surfing. In rain season there is good surf close to the house at breaks called rio lajas and cedros.

We had a wonderful stay in Cabuya and we deply recommend a visit to costa rica and Olis casa. Oli is a great landlord and very flexible what makes it much easier for us. We had no problems at all!

Einfaches Haus in traumhafter Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren mit unseren Kindern (4 und 5 Jahre) für drei Wochen dort. Cabuya hat uns sehr gut gefallen, abseits des Massentourismus und in wunderschöner Natur. Das Grundstück liegt direkt am Strand, mit eigenem Zugang und umgeben von Bäumen und vielen Tieren. Täglich sahen wir Brüllaffen, Kapuzineraffen, Leguane, Skorpione usw. Der Strand ist traumhaft, aber kaum zum Baden geeignet. Das Haus ist sehr groß, war aber einfach ausgestattet. Der Anschluss der Glasflasche war defekt, ebenso fehlten diverse Glühbirnen in den Lampen. Die angekündigte Waschmaschine war erst auf Nachfrage im Schuppen zugänglich. Auch waren keinerlei Gewürze und andere Koch-Grundausstattung, ganz anders als in anderen gemieteten Häusern vorhanden. Alles grundsätzlich nicht problematisch, wir haben auf unserer längeren Costa Rica Reise in wesentlich einfacheren Hütten gewohnt. Dort stimmte dann aber auch der Preis! Aber auch damit hätten wir leben können, wenn am Ende unseres Aufenthaltes nicht akribisch jede Gabel und jeder Löffel auf Vollständigkeit überprüft worden wären, während wir daneben saßen. So etwas hinterlässt bei derartig spartanischer Ausstattung ein schales Gefühl. Auch die Diskussion, ob wir nun eine neue Gasflasche hätten kaufen müssen, obwohl wir unsere nicht verbraucht hatten, war recht merkwürdig. Wir haben schon viele Häuser gemietet, derartiges Verhalten war uns bisher unbekannt. Ansonsten sind die Vermieter angenehme Menschen und sehr freundlich. Wer Urlaub in einem netten Häuschen, ohne Gemütlichkeit, dafür aber in traumhafter Lage legt und das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis außer acht lässt, kann hier einen sehr entspannten Urlaub verbringen. Für die Umgebung und Lage des Hauses gibt es fünf Sterne, das Haus, insbesondere dessen Preis nur drei, so dass wir vier Sterne vergeben.
