Montezuma House Rental Photos and Description

A two bedroom house nestled in the jungle with expansive ocean views

The four modest rental houses at Agua Vista are a small, family run business, 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 for those searching for a simple, unique, and authentic experience.

Casa Cariblanco is a teak wood appointed two bedroom house with a fully equipped kitchen, ample indoor living space and spectacular views. It boasts both an indoor shower as well as an outdoor shower nestled into a lush fragrant flowering garden. Called the Casa Cariblanco because white faced monkeys frequent the jungle wildlife corridor in front of the house. The Montezuma River and famous Falls run adjacent. Raised wood flooring give this house nautical feeling.

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.

Khalida Lockheed & Alexander Jimenez purchased this house in 2005

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!

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This place is like paradise. We are a familly of 4 and stayed here for 3 days. The house was a perfect size for us . The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. The front is covered with windows which allows you to see the amazing view. The front balcony is also great to sit for a coffee or wine glass. The picture on the website really does not make it justice. We also really enjoyed the pool, the beautiful landscape around the house and the fact that we could walk to the Montezuma falls directly from the property. We saw more animals here then anywhere else that we visited in Costa Rica. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Montezuma.

Our stay at Agua Vista was perfect. The house was just what we needed and the views over the Pacific were mind blowing! Communication between Alex and Khalida was easy before our stay. I would definitely go back!

I would suggest that a 4x4 is needed to access the property and if you do not have a car, it is a fair distance uphill from Montezuma town. If you don't mind walking or taking a taxi then this would work!

Thank you!

Review of Agua Vista Casa Cariblanco

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 nights in the Casa Cariblanco at Agua Vista. Overall it was a great experience. The two bedroom villa was comfortable and had great ocean views. The large shared pool was also great and has terrific ocean views. Khalida and Alex were wonderful hosts and were able to answer any questions we had. One suggestion for anyone considering staying at Agua Vista would be to rent a 4x4 SUV vehicle as the road into the property is a bit challenging, especially right after the rainy season.

Amazing view, close to the jungle, and close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 stayed at Aqua Vista for 4 nights. We arrived after 11pm, which was no problem and Khalida was waiting to greet us with the key. The entire property is beautiful, but we stayed at Casa Cariblanco. This amazing house is right on the edge of the jungle with an amazing view from the living area and porch. We loved lying on the hammock listening to all of nature's sounds. We even spotted a few white-faced monkeys and heard howler monkeys nearby. The 2 bedrooms are equally nice with ceiling fans to cool you down at night. No AC needed! The shared infinity pool is only steps away from the house and way great for cooling off during the day, or cooking on the grill. This is often where we would run in Khalida (they live in the property as well) and she would give us great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Although Agua Vista is set back from Montezuma town by a long dirt road (I would recommend a 4x4 or atv because the walk is pretty long) it is nice and quiet, yet close enough to town to go a few times a day. We rented ATVs from town that turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We drove them to Santa Teresa and Manzanillo, stopping at many beaches along the way. Another reccomedation is visiting Montezuma waterfalls. It's fun to swim at the base of the falls and even watch locals jump in. Overall, staying at Aqua Vista was perfect for our group and we would recommend it to anyone from young couples for families with young kids. Khalida and Alex were amazing hosts, and we would definitely stay there again!

Maison de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu la chance de pouvoir passer quelques jours dans la maison Cariblanco de Khalida et Alexander. Quel merveilleux choix ! Cette maison très confortable au milieu de la jungle, climatisée,se distingue par sa magnifique vue sur l'océan et une belle piscine à débordement . Ici, nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous, grâce également à la gentillesse de ces propriétaires. A la prochaine fois
