“Loved the dogs!!”
Reviewed 22 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed at the Jodokus Inn November 8-10, 2016. We really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the wonderful views. There were four in our party, and all of us were missing our dogs, so we also really enjoyed the fact that there were rescue dogs on the property. The Inn is located a short distance from Montezuma which was nice. The road can be a bit of an adventure, but well worth it!

“Clean &Spacious with beautiful sunrise over the water views”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My husband, myself & two friends enjoyed our stay at Jodokus Inn very much. Ype-Claas was very friendly and was a wonderful host. The Inn is very private & safe but not far from the busy little town & its gorgeous beaches. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. The bedrooms were roomy with comfortable beds & pillows. The views from the upstairs (where all the bedrooms were) was beautiful. The grounds were well kept & Ype welcomed us to pick any of the many different fruits available on his trees. We took advantage of the pool on the property as it was formed from a natural cold spring & we found it very refreshing.

“Highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Ype Bolman is the consummate host to the best part of your vacation in Montezuma. Ype has built a beautiful home amongst perfectly manicured grounds filled with flowers and fruit trees. You will stay on the second floor, which is very private, fully screened and open to the breeze. We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer. Do pay a visit if you love animals because Ype volunteers with a community association that rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes injured and neglected street dogs and cats. Please save a few dollars to contribute to the cause. The man has a heart of gold and you will surely feel it while you are there. We can't say enough about our stay. It was the highlight of our trip. Please note that you will need a car to get to and from his house. I would recommend a 4 wheel drive as the roads up and down are quite steep.
Thanks Ype and hope to see you again soon,

“would definitely recommend”

The guest house is run by a kind hearted Dutch man who will gladly point out the main attractions in the area. Finding out how to get there is a bit tricky and one path was quite steep, but the owner is helpful in seeing you get there. It is located on top of a little hill from which you can see the coastline, surrounded by exotic wildlife (for example, in the garden there is a surplus in little green parrots and monkeys will try to raid the kitchen if the window is left open). There is no air-conditioning but fans are present, a bit strange was the lack of a door between the bedroom and the bathroom.

Jodokus inn is an awesome place! The house is beautiful. The common areas are very open and comfortable. Also, this place features a huge garden. Everything is very well maintained, Ype loves his property and it shows. The area is secluded and gated (you absolutely feel safe there) but is still close to Montezuma (5 min drive) and Mal País - Santa Teresa (20 min drive). As for the host, you won't find a better one than Ype-Claas. He is dedicated to answer your every need (he drove half way to Mal País to show us the way!). He knows everything about the area so don't be shy to ask him anything about restaurants and activities to do. He makes you feel welcomed and is very friendly. We highly recommend this place!

“FANTASTIC STAY AT JODOKUS INN!!! Truly.”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

Hi all,

When my sister and I came to Costa Rica the first time, we went to stay with Ype. From the moment I found Jodokus Inn listed in AirBnB and Tripadvisor I felt it was a good place to stay. From the moment we got out of the taxi, we were graciously met by Ype, Ype's place is very cool. I appreciate the energy and vibe very much in the place and find it definitely comfortable, relaxed, and worthwhile. Ype is a great host and has a BIG heart. I like that he is very honest and if you need assistance with anything...he is the man to ask and he helps unconditionally.

Jodokus Inn is a safe and secure place and I Highly recommend it for people coming to experience Costa Rica. Ype has a lot of insight about Montezuma so be sure to ask him because he is more than willing to share about Montezuma.

Enjoy staying at Ype's and Enjoy Montezuma; its a magical place for sure!
