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,

Million dollar views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed this property. We had as much fun laying by the pool with cocktails, enjoying our tunes, and taking in the breathtaking views as we had exploring the plethora of other things there are to do in the Montezuma area. Joachim was extremely helpful and accommodating. The perfect host! The kitchen was well-equipped. No A/C, but we went in December and found the fans certainly adequate. The wildlife that we encountered on the property was a true treat for my family. As a note, the guesthouse is not quite adjacent to the main house. I talked to Joachim about this before we arrived, so we knew what to expect. With our two younger children (ages 6 and 8), that meant that my wife and I split up to each share a bed with a boy. We didn't feel comfortable putting them that distance away from us. It wasn't a deal breaker when we booked and it didn't detract from our experience. Just something to be aware of. I think this property is ideally suited for 2 couples or a family with 1-2 older children that you don't mind sleeping in a separate structure about 50 feet away. For the right adventurous family, I can not stress enough how amazing this property is! I think that you will be hard pressed to find any property at this price point that can beat it in all of Costa Rica...let alone the Montezuma area.

Best ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an excellent time at Casa Joachim! Thomas a Beatrix were wonderful and made sure everything went smoothly. Stunning sunrises every morning! Private swimming pool for lounging in the sun. Howler monkeys joining us every evening for cocktail hour! Loved everything about it!

On a side note- Rent a four-wheel drive from Dollar. Our car had some issues and they immediately brought us a new one from 5 hours away for no extra charge. Great service! We will be back for sure!

Casa Joachim is an absolutely unique place

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled and seen much of the world for the last 60 years we have found Joachim's Paradise unique. Situated on a rock over the Pacific ocean this wonderful home is well equipped in every respect. (More details you find in other reviews)

This very private and secure place offers nature lovers everything they can wish for. Flora and Fauna are simply spectacular.

Thomas and Beatrice, the property Managers, are very helpful, friendly and reliable.

We have been staying here for over 2 months and enjoyed every moment of it. Wernito and Esthercita

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!
