Puntarenas House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The four rental houses at Agua Vista are located in the lush hills above Montezuma, at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.

We offer stunning views, convenient access to town, and abundant wildlife. Each house, unique, tastefully designed and nestled into the jungle, is clean and comfortable and comes fully equipped.

Agua Vista provides the perfect combination of seclusion and accessibility.

With a laid back rustic feel, Casa Morfo sits within the jungle, under the shade of a bamboo grove overlooking ocean views. Wake to the sounds of the jungle and the ocean out your window. Relax on the spacious tiled porch, you swing on the hammock, lounge on the ample built-in benches on the wood deck, and enjoy the views and wildlife around you. Take a refreshing dip in your private plunge pool. Luxuriate in your unique rock wall enclosed indoor/outdoor shower - the best of both. Prepare delicious meals in your fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances. This house is named for the enormous electric-blue butterflies we see fluttering around here.

Agua Vista is located in the lush hills above Montezuma, and offers stunning views, convenient access to town, and abundant wildlife. We are nestled into the jungle and provide the perfect combination of seclusion and accessibility. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you!

About Khalida Lockheed & Alexander Jimenez

We are a Tico-Gringa couple living on the property who met here in 1993 and have two little monkeys of our own. He hails from neighboring Cóbano and she comes all the way from New Jersey, USA. After living in The Big Apple for 9 years, we decided to move back to the 'ol hometown in 2006 so the kids could swap jungle gyms for the jungle, and we happily left computer maintenance and children's animated television behind! Because of our bicultural heritage and our deep roots in the local community, we are able to provide you with an authentic Costa Rican experience that also respects the unique concerns of tourists from abroad.

Why Khalida Lockheed & Alexander Jimenez chose Puntarenas

The beautiful views of the ocean and the mainland beyond, the lush jungle and abundant wildlife, the unique location bordering the Montezuma River, and the proximity to Montezuma village yet secluded feeling was what attracted us to this spot. It is one of only a few properties in this area that have these sought after features.

What makes this house unique

This is one of a very few properties in Montezuma with private access to the world famous Montezuma River and Waterfalls. We border 800 meters of the river in a secluded spot with many private waterfalls and dipping pools. The river also ensures a very vibrant and healthy community of wildlife. Most guests say that they have seen more wildlife here than anywhere else they have traveled in Costa Rica!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Morfo for 5 days, wish we had more time to stay and just relax. Woke to sounds of the jungle, and star watching at night, loved those howlers.

Alex and Khalida were great hosts, eager to help in any way they could. Housekeeping daily, the place was exceptionally clean. Loved the outdoor shower.

Would love to stay again and soak in the tranquility of the place. Thanks Khalida and Alex for sharing your place

Peace and loveliness in the jungle!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently stayed in Casa Morpho at Agua Vista, Montezuma. The house was adorable and totally efficient, the jungle surroundings were lush and tranquil, and the owners, Khalida and Alex, were terrific hosts. They are such nice people.

We enjoyed the ocean view from our veranda and sat out each night after dark with just the light of a couple of tea candles to talk, laugh and enjoy the sounds of the jungle. No worries here.

I love that Alex has recycled many items he uses in his gorgeous gardens. The koi ponds are amazing! The entire property is so authentically Costa Rican, and the ocean view from their horizon pool is just breathtaking.

We own a beautiful home in Montezuma which we rent out but I would stay here again in a heartbeat if our house was occupied.

Thanks, Alex and Khalida; we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kathy, for taking the time to write this! This review is quite a compliment considering the beautiful home that you have here in Montezuma. It was, of course, a delight to have you and your daughter here with us and we can't wait to see you again (especially our girls). Warm wishes, KAFE
