The location of this place is excellent, next to the beach and with the trees/garden just outside. It is close to the waterfalls as well. The rooms however were a little worn down and the lightning in the room not so great, quite dark. But considering the price it is still acceptable.
I think this deserves a higher ranking than 12 out of 18. Susana and her team are helpful and informative and make this a comfortable place to stay. Sited down beyond the ending of the road from Cobano, it doesn't suffer from traffic noise as did the place where I stayed a few years ago. In fact the main sounds are the much pleasanter howler monkeys (which you can see foraging in the trees) and the Pacific surf.
My upstairs room was spacious and airy---so much so that at night I didn't miss the absence of air conditioning. The verandah with seating and a hammock was also comfortable. The kitchen where I breakfasted was deserted most of the time.
The garden could do with some finishing off and the Wifi isn't brilliant but otherwise a comfortable stay. The pick of the cheap eateries is probably the Soda Monte Sol.
This lovely house central located made the travel to Montezuma even more worth it. The price and standard is excelent.
The house has a big kitchen downstairs, where we spent much time koocking. The huge terrasse outside of the dorm where we lived and where the other rooms are located, is a beutiful place to eat breakfast while watching the sea, meet other travelers and relax in the shaddow when the sun get to intense. The breeze trough the room made it more comfortably sleeping (in the dry-season).
The family living there are nice people who give you the privacy you want, but still the feeling of security about leaving stuff in the rooms and the feeling of coming home in a new country. Douglas, a Costa Rican friend of the family, and travel guide, living at the house took us out kayaking, gave us inside tips for the area and made lokal food for us.
Its about a five minute walk to the center of Montzuma, the beach is on the other side of the street and the attractions you want to see is close by.
I can strongly recommend this place to other travelers visiting Montezuma!
We stayed here with our 2 year old for a few nights. Clean and large room. Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was perfect because it's off the busy montezuma downtown area but still right across the street from the beach.
