Agua Vista
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Alex, Khalida and their charming daughters exceeded our expectations by far, we went to Costa Rica seeking vacation time, surfing and alternative healing. The Casa Cariblanco that we rented not only had amazing views, but it made us feel as though we were right at home. Alex and Khalida know everyone in the area and gave us great information and insight for all our needs in Montezuma. Including surfing, taxi drives and healing (they happen to live right next to a world renown healer that helped us in a life changing manor!!!) It was like being at Aguavista was meant to be for us.
Between the ocean view, daily monkey migration trough the yard, the relaxing pool and comfortable surroundings Aguavista made for the perfect stay in Costa Rica.
I would highly recommend this stay to anyone… we will return someday :)

We had a wonderful time at Agua Vista and stayed at the Casa Trogon. Wonderful hosts, beautiful place, everything was perfect! Close to Montezuma, but such a peaceful environment. Great restaurant recommendation too - Playa de las Artistas just outside of Montezuma. Thanks again!

Room Tip: Casa Trogon had a wonderful view of the ocean!

My husband and I recently stayed for five nights at Agua Vista. It was our first getaway sans kids so we were really looking for a relaxing vacation mixed with a bit of adventure. Montezuma, and more specifically our stay at Agua Vista was the perfect fit! We were warmly greeted by Alex and Khalida during our morning arrival and were so pleased with the welcoming, clean, private cabin. We selected Casa Morfo specifically because we wanted the plunge pool. We debated whether to go with an Air Con option but in the end, the plunge pool trumped the air conditioning. It turns out we made the right decision because there was always a pleasant breeze in the late evening and early morning and with open windows and a ceiling fan, we were very comfortable at night. We were psyched about the ocean views and secluded location. Our cabin had a lovely welcome basket with a supply of coffee that kept us well stocked for the entire trip. We appreciated the daily housekeeping service and the cabin was stocked with everything we needed (microwave, wine opener, laundry soap). The trails around the property were well-marked and easy to navigate and we were thrilled to learn that there's an easy trail to the waterfalls right from the property. After spending the day riding around to different beaches with the Quad we rented, it was so lovely to return to Agua Vista to soak in the lnfinite pool and lounge in the pool-side hammack. In the evenings my husband and I would enjoy the sounds of the jungle as we sat on our private porch playing cards. We appreciated that Agua Vista was up on the hill away from the traffic of Montezuma and it's tucked way off the busy road which it a giant bonus (and puts this place above and beyond most of the rental properties that are just off the dusty road). Alex and Khalida are fabulous hosts! They were happy to answer our questions about sightseeing, hikes, roadtrips, and restaurants. This was our first trip to CR, and we can't wait to return. Agua Vista went BEYOND our expectations and you will be so pleased with your choice to stay here. Whether you are planning a couples getaway, trip with friends, or a vacation with your children, this place is fantastic for everyone! Just a few takeaways: Bring enough water if you plan to do the 4 hr (roundtrip) hike in the nearby Nat'l Park, bring eye-gear if you plan to rent a quad (roads are dusty in the dry season), be sure to stop at the Cabuya Panaderia (best chocolate cake and amazing food and smoothies), check out the beaches around Santa Theresa & Playa Hermosa (but make Agua Vista your home-base).

My husband and I stayed three days at Casa Morfo and it was a wonderful experience. Very relaxing and the wildlife from the pool/deck area is great. We saw many different birds and butterflies. The casa was spotless and very private. The road up to Agua Vista is a bit rough and I would not want to walk back from town, but if you take it slow...all will be well. Great value for the cottage. The afternoons on the deck that were too hot for much but sitting back and relaxing, was perfect. Nice place.

We stayed 4 nights in Agua Vista. This place truly was one of the highlights of our trip and the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. The cabins are very nice and well-equipped (our favorite cabin was Casa Morfo). All of the cabins are middle of wildlife (we saw howler monkeys, white-nosed coatis, capuchin monkeys, humming birds, agoutis, blue morph...) and hiking distance from a beautiful waterfall and 30min walk from Montezuma “village”. The owners (Alex and Khalida) are super nice and helpful. We highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Casa Morfo was our favorite. All cabins are very nice.

We came to Agua Vista for the last two nights of our honeymoon, transferring at the last moment from a disappointing hotel just down the road. We are so glad we made this step - we stayed in Casa Trogon and felt as though we had stepped into paradise. The house was clean and no detail was left out (like the little flashlight on our keys), the plunge pool was more like a small swimming pool, the outside area was idyllic and the kitchen was really well stocked. What's more, the owners Khalida and Alex could not have been nicer - we arrived a few hours early to check in and Alex apologised that the plunge pool hadn't yet been cleaned - we were just happy that they weren't telling us to come back in a few hours! We can't say enough nice things about Agua Vista - if you're in the area you have to go and experience how peaceful and beautiful it is.

Room Tip: Book in advance - we were really lucky they had anywhere for us to stay
