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

About Peter and Rocio Kahl

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

Why Peter and Rocio Kahl chose Montezuma

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Rustic tiny cabin on dramatic cliff

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the Mariposa cabin with my boys aged 10 & 12. It was cozy but worked fine. The cabin would be better as a romantic private place for a couple. It was very simple but had everything you need. You will need to bring all food essentials: ie salt pepper sugar. The drive up from Montezuma is extremely steep and a little scary. We did not have a car but Santiago, the caretaker, helped us find a nice taxi driver who was willing to drive us back and forth. Santiago was very helpful. He speaks only Spanish but he called Peter the owner when we had and difficulty with translation. Peter was also very helpfull. Although the location was Slightly inconvenient to get to the beach etc, I felt very safe up there at night with the windows and doors open. Montezuma town itself is a little seedy and you could not do that. My boys and I enjoyed lazy days at the swimming pool. We listened to howler monkeys below us on the cliffs and enjoyed stalking huge iguanas on the grounds. There were white faced capuchin monkeys in the trees around us and great birding in the property and surrounding area.

I highly recommend the area. As a die-hard beach lover, It’s hard to explain why the waterfalls are so incredibly beautiful. There are many streams in the area and they drop down cliffs into giant swimming pools. You go to the Falls not just because it is beautiful but also an amazing place to swim! This is actually the true splendor of the area. My only complaint would be the bed. I am very picky about my beds and to be fair, from experience at other places, it was about average. I think that bringing in large items like high quality mattresses is very expensive in this remote area.... but if it was possible to replace it would be well worth it!

Owner's Response: Christina, thank you for your nice remarks that the cabin is a romantic place, that you and kids felt very safe up here, that you all enjoyed the pool. And you had the opportunity to see wild life while visiting us. We need to remind you though that we were very clear with you at the beginning that the cabin was not for 3 people. Nevertheless, you insisted and agreed that you would sleep with one of your children and you asked us for an extra bed and we certainly did our best to accommodate you 3 in it. Nevertheless, thank you Christina for your other words of support about us and the area.

Beautiful view! Remote location!

  • 5 of 5

This was worth every penny!! The pool was great. House was great. Santiago the caretaker of the house was awesome! Only issue we had was that our neighbors liked to walk around naked.... maybe a privacy question on the booking sheet so that people that prefer the nude have a more private house... other than hay the house was perfect!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ashley, didn't know about the nudes, if you would have told us earlier we would have send them some clothes. First time we had this, they have been told that it was a shared area. Thanks for letting us know. Big hugs Peter and Rocio

A perfect family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Art House together with dear friends (including 4 children) for the weekend. The description here only begins to capture the beauty of this home. Original artwork throughout, extraordinary salvaged antique architectural details - from the wood floors to unique stained glass windows. Mosaic tile floors with wonderful creativity and playfulness. Perfect pool, gorgeous views, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, roof-top patio where our boys happily slept under the stars instead of in their room. Don't hesitate to book this gem. We look forward to returning!

Amazing view, Accomodation our of a magazine!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Colibri cabin for 3 nights. The view was amazing and the host (Peter) was very welcoming and accomodating. We enjoyed the views and the outdoor shower. The house itself is very rustic and you should know that before coming. The colibri house is about 100 meters from the main house (which is where the pool is located). The geco cabin was under construction while we were there which prevented us from using the pool due to the construction that was going on around it. The only real issue we found was the heat. There is no A/C in the colibri cabin and we did not find that the unit had very good air flow even though it is open concept with a lot of windows. Peter was great and gave us an additional fan however without A/C we found that the bedding and pillows were damp. The pillows were not the greatest. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you need to make your own meals and Peter brought us down a charcoal BBQ to use which was fantastic. This really is a unique spot and perfect if you don't mind a little heat when you sleep. You will need a car as the cabin is at the top of a cliff and requires some hilly driving to get to. Make sure you get groceries before you come as local groceries are more expensive.

Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

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!

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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 :)

The area around is amazing , wild and untouched. We made a guide book for our guest called Montezuma wild. There are over 50 waterfalls close by.
