Beautiful Beachfront House in Montezuma
average rating of 5.0 based on 46 reviews
Piedmont, Quebec, Canada

Our third wonderful staying at Ivan's House!

  • 5 of 5

We came back for the third time in this beautiful house. Why? Because it is well located: directly on the beach and close to the village of Montezuma, in fact at a 5 minutes walking distance! The house is well furnished and Ivan (the owner) is there every morning to be sure everything is ok. Even if it is close to the village, the enclosed garden provides efficient privacy, and the terrace is cool and relaxing. A fireplace with a grill will allow nice BBQ cooking.

For the first time we came by boat instead of by car. Everything interesting is at walking distance. We also used Zumatour speedboats to cross from Jaco to Montezuma and back. Very professional and the safest company in town for this kind of service. Nice trip to Turtuga island (the food is amazing) also with Zumatour. They arranged transportation to the airport in San Jose in 3 hours without the stress of driving. All thanks to Ivan and his wife Francesca who took care that all my family had another great trip in Montezuma!

Amazing property, Amazing location and Amazing owner

  • 5 of 5

I would give this more then 5 stars if I could. This property is in a perfect location if you want to stay in or near Montezuma. The house itself was amazing and a perfect fit for our family of 5. We took the Zuma speed boat over and it landed right on the beach in front of this property. The Zuma tour staff was so helpful and Ivan himself checked in on us several times to make sure things were going ok. He also dropped by to let us know his friend had just caught a yellow fin tuna and wanted to know if we would like some. He ended up bringing us over a very large chunk of tuna that was sashimi grade and easily worth over $200 USD. Our family enjoyed the fish for the rest of our time in Montezuma.

It was a nice central location to the waterfalls, downtown and the turtle preserve. It was located next to a youth hostel, but they were quiet and perfect neighbors the entire time. Also the Wifi at the house was very slow, but I think that is probably the normal for internet in this area because I had the same issues on my cell phone as well.

We would also highly recommend any of the Zuma tours that you are interested in. We had the honor getting to ride in the new "big speed boat" that Zuma tours had just acquired and it was such a nice ride. We also would recommend the Zuma tour to Tortuga island.

Thank you so much Ivan and staff for the amazing trip to Montezuma!

Lovely house right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

End of January 2017 me and two friends stayed 6 days in Ivans House in Montezuma. We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay and the house was perfect. Perfectly clean, decorated, and supplied. The view is breathtaking as soon as you walk through the door! We loved having the beach right outside the house. We could not have asked for more and our host Ivan made us feel so welcome and was extremely helpful from the first mail that was sent until the day we left the house.

I can really recommend this house and I hope to come back soon.

Can't get any closer to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Ivan's home for three nights in March with our college-age son and his friend. We all agreed it was our favorite place of the many places we have stayed in Costa Rica over the years. We really enjoyed watching the sunrise over the ocean and sitting outside on the front patio for meals or drinks. The town is a few steps one direction and the beach a few steps straight in front, and yet is was quiet at the house.

Ivan and his family were fantastic and so hospitable. We did a tour through his company, Zuma Tours, to snorkel at Tortuga Island, and we really enjoyed the snorkeling and the beach. The white sand and aqua water makes Tortuga Island one of the prettiest beaches we have seen in Costa Rica. However, after a long day in the sun, our son got heat stroke. Ivan was very helpful when we called him and his family did everything they could to try to help us. He was fine the next day. We also used Zuma Tours to get to and from Montezuma, taking the water taxi from Playa Heredura near Jaco. It was just a one-hour trip, and we saw whales and dolphins. My husband is in the boating business and found their boats to be in really good condition. We did not find that we needed a car at all in Montezuma, and we prefer arriving by water taxi to driving via the ferry from Paquera.

We would definitely recommend Ivan's house.

My two sons, girlfriend and I stayed here last year. We loved it. Right on beach where the beach and swimming were perfect. Close to everything. Ivan was fabulous and helped with anything we needed. Highly recommended. Wish I was there right now.
