About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Unique 2 bedrooms home with ocean view and pool on over 1 acre. Comfort and detail define the Pool House, located in Armonia Eco Village, a 25 acre park setting with a river and trails. Minutes to beaches and parks. Tucked into the hills above Montezuma, in a well established neighborhood, with an ocean view, this home still affords jungle privacy. Surrounded by mature gardens and a custom pool area, very private and has 24/7 security. Lots of wildlife.

If you are looking for a stunning and private luxury property in Costa Rica, this is it. Perfect for people who want to be on their own and who love nature.

Located on the southern tip of the beautiful Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific Ocean 1.5 km from downtown Montezuma. The Cabo Blanco National Park and town of Cabuya is another 3 and 4 km to the south. Montezuma is great base for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, beach combing, wildlife watching and all the activities nature lovers looking for.

Many people walk to town, however, there is a regular bus service that goes to downtown Montezuma, Cabuya, Cabo Blanco National Park, every two hours. There is also a bus to Cobano (7 km). Cobano is the central town on the Nicoya Peninsula. We would still recommend having your own transportation. Though not very large, Cobano has a pharmacy, legal services, bakery, supermarkets, bank and medical assistance. There is a private and a public health clinic in town, as well as a small hospital. There are two gasoline stations, which many locals and tourists use to refuel before heading further south. A few supermarkets and hardware stores are found around town as well. In addition to walking, a car, or bus, taxis are available.

About Ginette Poirier

I'm from the United States and I fell in love with that little paradise. I hope you will appreciate as much as I do.

Ginette Poirier purchased this house in 2010

Why Ginette Poirier chose Puntarenas

After traveling throughout Costa Rica, I found exceptional beauty, peace and serenity with all the amenities at the Harmony Pool House in Armonia Eco Village. The house is built of exceptional quality and has all the modern amenities. There are lots of activities in this wonderfully bohemian village which also has exceptional restaurants all are nearby this very private home. Montezuma, once a fishing village nestled at the feet of two enormous cliffs from where six rivers twisted and turned creating creeks, pools, and cascading waterfalls, has grown up but remains a enchanting destination.

What makes this house unique

Picture yourself living in an eco-friendly, gated community surrounded by hundreds of beautiful trees, a bubbling, crystal-clear stream, and an abundance of wildlife – including White-headed Capuchin and Mantled Howler monkeys, gloriously colored butterflies, richly hued hummingbirds and pizotes. There is now a resident coatimundi we've named Bob. He's quite entertaining and doesn't bother anyone. Armonia Ocean view Eco Village at “Finca los Caballos’’ comprised of 12 incredible oceanview lots on it's 25 acres.

Wonderful outdoor living

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed at the Pool House for three days in October. The outdoor area is where we spent our time and it was amazing. The house is private and in a great location. Gini was great to work with in spite of troubles with the VRBO website. We would definitely book again. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at the pool house. The house is very clean and comfortable and the pool is wonderful. It was incredibly relaxing and wish we could have stayed much longer. I enjoyed the close proximity to Montezuma and Cabo Blanco and being able to come back to such a peaceful home. Ginny makes sure everything is in order and I felt like this place was well worth the money. I highly recommend it.

A piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Montezuma house for a 40th birthday girls' trip, and it was fabulous. The house is comfortable and encourages outdoor living in that the patio/sitting area is beautiful, roomy and catches a lovely breeze almost all the time. The pool and landscaping is beautiful, and a big advantage to the house if you're not feeling like doing the beach, or want to get in after dinner. It feels very private, yet is quite close to Montezuma, where we found great places to eat and great stretches of beach to visit. Do the waterfall hike, and ask for Carlos as a guide; he's fantastic! Gini, the property manager was great to work with, patiently answered all my questions and even left us a huge bowl of fresh fruit for our stay! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Despite not getting our luggage for the first five days, our vacation at the pool house was fantastic. Gino, our hostess was most accommodating. The wildlife was great, we were serenaded by howlers most evenings and mornings and the local coati mundi came to feed daily. The pool was great and most relaxing. Acess to the town of montezuma was relatively easy but you do need transportation. The road to montezuma is quite dusty and not great for walking. It can be done if that,s what you want to do. Really good restaraunt so abound in the area. Fiery y fuego is the best of them. Thanks Gino for a most memorable vacation!

Beautiful home and location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from Montezuma, one of our favorite areas of CR. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed the property, and would not hesitate to rebook. The home was very comfortable, with very picturesque setting, and an unusual pool. All representations of the home were as advertised. I would limit this property to no more than four people, ideal for two couples. Lots of wildlife to watch, and a welcomed quiet location after leaving the town of Montezuma. We love the Nicoya and specifically this area. The roads are rough once you leave Cobano, and just before you head down to Montezuma, but that is the only negative to this location. The home would have received a 5 star rating but lacked personal decorating touches. With a little attention to decorating the home would easily rate 5 stars. Very nice property manager that is very attentive to your needs.
