Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Spend your vacation living in close harmony with nature in this beautiful octagonal oceanfront home. The home offers two nicely decorated bedrooms - each with its own private bathroom. There is one very large bedroom upstairs and one downstairs for complete privacy. The upstairs also has a walk in closet with a sink and small refrigerator. The kitchen has a lovely bar to the patio.

The upstairs bedroom is huge, more like a studio apartment than just a bedroom. With screened windows all around, you will feel you are living among the trees. This bedroom has its own mini-kitchen, refrigerator, full bathroom, and a safe for valuables. In addition to the queen bed, this room also has a convertible sofa bed (with two real single mattresses) that can sleep two more. In this room you will awake to gorgeous sunrises over the ocean, perhaps with howler monkeys in the trees outside.

The downstairs bedroom is conveniently located at ground level for those who may prefer to avoid stairs. The windows are screened to allow all the ocean breezes to flow right through. Wake up and step outside to the covered patio, where you will enjoy your morning coffee with a peaceful view of the ocean just steps away! The entire home is set like a jewel in a dramatic rock formation on the edge of the ocean. Iguanas sun themselves amid the tropical plantings, and monkeys often can be seen in the trees.

The home is located in a private, quiet area with only three other homes nearby. Stroll down the road to find a sparkling river that empties into the ocean. Before that a lovely 8 foot waterfall cascades into a clean, fresh-water swimming lagoon with a rope-swing for the kids. Kids of all ages will also love exploring the tide pools among the rock formations.

Of course, there is also a beautiful sandy beach for those who prefer sunbathing, snorkeling, or ocean swimming. Good news for fishing enthusiasts, this is one of the best fishing spots around, so bring your gear! We do provide basic fishing reels. Do you prefer surfing? A quick 5-minute walk from the house will take you to the Los Cedros surf break (boards may be rented in town).

One of the best attributes of this rental is that you can avoid the expense of a rental car because the local shuttle bus runs close by the house. And if you like, it is a easy 20 minute walk to Montezuma. Catch the bus in one direction to get to Montezuma with its shops, restaurants, and nightlife. In the other direction you will find the small sleepy village of Cabuya, and the world-famous Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Preserve. Whether you prefer wildlife viewing or snorkeling, surfing or fishing, nightlife or peace and quiet, Las Rocas truly offers something for everyone. When you close your eyes and picture your perfect vacation, Las Rocas has what you dream about.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We chose this location for our honeymoon get away, we spent 2 weeks there. We

enjoyed the close proxmiity of the house to many things (Montezuma Town,

Beaches, Waterfall, National Park, Mal Pais & St. Teresa). We got to see many

animals (monkeys, iguana's, etc). The house is great, and a wonderful location to

hear the ocean and see the beautiful waves crash on the rocks. What a lovely,

peaceful place. We had a great time!! Copied from HomeAway website, property

Idyllic location and wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We were excited to find this property and were even more impressed when we arrived. Warmly greeted by Leanne, upon arriving in Montezuma, we were shown around the town and then to the property near by. Beyond the delightful accommodations, the property has it's own private beach and tide pools, as well as various quiet places to melt into a hammock with the ocean steps away. Several times we walked from this property on quiet roads to one of the best bathing beaches I've experienced (5 minutes if you walk slowly). On other excursions we walked to a waterfall and hiked up into an area with exotic birds and other wildlife, an easy 10 minute walk away. Having two wildlife biologists with us we chose walking places like Cabuya, a tiny town nearby, so to see the many varieties of birds (and monkeys). And, sunrise! Wow!! I got up every morning to watch that amazing show.

So, if you like the beauty of nature and you really want a treat, this is it.

Relaxing/Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Las Rocas was amazing!! My family stayed for a week...not long enough! Booking was easy and safe. This property is perfectly located. Very secluded, yet close enough to Montezuma and other towns to get supplies, go out to eat/drink, etc. The house was very clean and well stocked with linens, etc. The property manager, Leeanne, was friendly and super helpful. She is very familiar with the roads, local businesses, etc. She was very accessible by phone or/and email and addressed our needs/questions in a very timely manner. We can't wait to return to Las Rocas....next time we will stay longer!!!

Exceeded expectations in so many ways

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to book Casa Las Rocas pretty close to our departure. I say fortunate because as soon as we saw the pictures, we knew this was where we had to stay, and it just so happened to be available for our dates.

Needless to say, the property did not disappoint and in fact blew away our expectations. Leanne and Ron are about the nicest people we have ever met. Their stories kept us fascinated and entertained to the point that we wish we could have spent the whole time with them!

Working with Tad to get the reservation was a breeze and he had no issue accommodating us for an extra night when we decided we just could not leave yet.

There are so many activities nearby that we never even really felt the need to leave and had to force ourselves to explore further than the immediate area. The sunrises were breathtaking and the waterfalls were equally inspiring.

Montezuma and the surrounding villages have such a charm about them. We met so many wonderful and generous characters along the way. I can easily say this was the best vacation of my life and this is in no small part due to the perfect accommodations we had.

One tip I would give to future travelers however is to consider your transportation. We thought having a car might be a hassle but it would have actually extended our range and we might have explored a bit further if we had a vehicle. Getting a cab at night was also a bit of a gamble so next time we will most likely have our own transportation.

The only problem I have with Casa Las Rocas is that it makes me not want to travel anywhere else! I can't imagine finding a better and more serene setting to spend some time with close friends and family.

Thank you to everyone that was a part of this unforgettable journey. We deeply appreciate this experience and it has enriched our lives.

Tranquil and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Las Rocas for two weeks with our 3 year old son and absolutely loved it. It is very private, lush, and beautiful. I loved listening to rain hit the roof at night (it was the rainy season) and to the waves crash against the rocks all day. The property is pretty expansive, and our son had no trouble entertaining himself on the grounds. There is a gravel driveway large enough to kick the soccer ball around or play Frisbee, two hammocks to swing on, lava rock, rivers, and beaches to explore, and a large rock formation on the property where we would see how many iguanas we could find (seven at once was our record). The wildlife variety did not disappoint, yet it felt miraculously bug-free given the nightly rains. They house itself is very charming, and has everything you need. It was incredibly peaceful, and just being there is by far my best memory of Costa Rica. I also want to put in a good word for the local property manager Leanne who was beyond warm, welcoming, and helpful.

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

This casa exudes the Costa Rican life style, frequently referred to as Pura Vida. Sitting in the title pools (when safe) with your favorite bevarage removes any stress that one may have brought down with them. It is close enough to Montezuma but far enough away that one can engage in the life there or escape into your own private garden. The casa is artistic with beautiful wood work and tile. The hammock on the front porch will afford you as many hours of peace and calm you may need. We loved this place and would recommend it only to people seeking Pura Vida.

Favorite stay of our Costa Rica Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in Montezuma at this home and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision!

The home was extremely clean and had everything you needed including a full kitchen, washer-dryer, and full sized bathrooms. It was located directly on the beach and the view was unreal. The location is close to town but also secluded for a sense of privacy. The property manager was extremely helpful. She was available and helped us with directions, gas, and even when we locked ourselves out of the house. It was by far our favorite part of our 10 day vacation and we would recommend it to anyone!
