Beautiful Beach-Front Home ... Ocean View... Private & Quiet

Beautiful Beach-Front Home ... Ocean View... Private & Quiet


Property Details

Updated: Oct 26, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Spend your vacation living in close harmony with nature in this beautiful octagonal oceanfront home. The home offers two nicely decorated bedrooms - each with its own private bathroom. There is one very large bedroom upstairs and one downstairs for complete privacy. The upstairs also has a walk in closet with a sink and small refrigerator. The kitchen has a lovely bar to the patio.

The upstairs bedroom is huge, more like a studio apartment than just a bedroom. With screened windows all around, you will feel you are living among the trees. This bedroom has its own mini-kitchen, refrigerator, full bathroom, and a safe for valuables. In addition to the queen bed, this room also has a convertible sofa bed (with two real single mattresses) that can sleep two more. In this room you will awake to gorgeous sunrises over the ocean, perhaps with howler monkeys in the trees outside.

The downstairs bedroom is conveniently located at ground level for those who may prefer to avoid stairs. The windows are screened to allow all the ocean breezes to flow right through. Wake up and step outside to the covered patio, where you will enjoy your morning coffee with a peaceful view of the ocean just steps away! The entire home is set like a jewel in a dramatic rock formation on the edge of the ocean. Iguanas sun themselves amid the tropical plantings, and monkeys often can be seen in the trees.

The home is located in a private, quiet area with only three other homes nearby. Stroll down the road to find a sparkling river that empties into the ocean. Before that a lovely 8 foot waterfall cascades into a clean, fresh-water swimming lagoon with a rope-swing for the kids. Kids of all ages will also love exploring the tide pools among the rock formations.

Of course, there is also a beautiful sandy beach for those who prefer sunbathing, snorkeling, or ocean swimming. Good news for fishing enthusiasts, this is one of the best fishing spots around, so bring your gear! We do provide basic fishing reels. Do you prefer surfing? A quick 5-minute walk from the house will take you to the Los Cedros surf break (boards may be rented in town).

One of the best attributes of this rental is that you can avoid the expense of a rental car because the local shuttle bus runs close by the house. And if you like, it is a easy 20 minute walk to Montezuma. Catch the bus in one direction to get to Montezuma with its shops, restaurants, and nightlife. In the other direction you will find the small sleepy village of Cabuya, and the world-famous Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Preserve. Whether you prefer wildlife viewing or snorkeling, surfing or fishing, nightlife or peace and quiet, Las Rocas truly offers something for everyone. When you close your eyes and picture your perfect vacation, Las Rocas has what you dream about.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We chose this location for our honeymoon get away, we spent 2 weeks there. We

enjoyed the close proxmiity of the house to many things (Montezuma Town,

Beaches, Waterfall, National Park, Mal Pais & St. Teresa). We got to see many

animals (monkeys, iguana's, etc). The house is great, and a wonderful location to

hear the ocean and see the beautiful waves crash on the rocks. What a lovely,

peaceful place. We had a great time!! Copied from HomeAway website, property

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5
This casa exudes the Costa Rican life style, frequently referred to as Pura Vida. Sitting in the title pools (when safe) with your favorite bevarage removes any stress that one may have brought down with them. It is close enough to Montezuma but far enough away that one can engage in the life there or escape into your own private garden. The casa is artistic with beautiful wood work and tile. The hammock on the front porch will afford you as many hours of peace and calm you may need. We loved this place and would recommend it only to people seeking Pura Vida.

Favorite stay of our Costa Rica Trip!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in Montezuma at this home and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision!

The home was extremely clean and had everything you needed including a full kitchen, washer-dryer, and full sized bathrooms. It was located directly on the beach and the view was unreal. The location is close to town but also secluded for a sense of privacy. The property manager was extremely helpful. She was available and helped us with directions, gas, and even when we locked ourselves out of the house. It was by far our favorite part of our 10 day vacation and we would recommend it to anyone!

A little slice of paradise!

We loved our time at Casa Las Rocas...everything about it was perfect! My mom, my boyfriend, and I spent about 10 days there in January 2014. We loved the wildlife right at the house and were happy to just bird watch for hours! The fishing on the rocks was fun (although I had no idea what I was doing - but caught a 5" fish!). We also did lots of stargazing on the rocks out at the beach too. The house was so unique and beautiful and had everything we needed, including a blender for fruit smoothies 24/7!! The local bus from Montezuma to Cabuya would pick us up on the road or we would just walk to town. Our only regret is that we wished we spent more time there! The holiday was fantastic!!

This is one of those places that you want to write a bad review about just to keep it for yourself but that wouldn't be fair to the owners who opened up this piece of paradise for others to enjoy as well. The views, the house, the sound of the ocean, the remoteness, the .... I can keep going. We had a few amazing days and would love to come back some day.

Romantic, close to nature, private paradise

  • 5 of 5
It was absolutely amazing to have the privacy of an entire house right on the beach. The sound of the ocean, the vast array of animals just outside, the sea air... it created a dreamlike atmosphere that we didn't want to leave. The main bedroom has high ceilings and views all around of the ocean. We cooked fresh fish and vegetables every day on the grill and ate on the front porch. We will definitely be back many times. Thank you, Las Rocas, for a fabulous vacation!

Best sunsets ever!

Love this place so much we've been back 3x in the past 5 years. I hate to write this review and let everyone in on the best kept secret on the Nicoya peninsula. It is in an absolutely stunning ocean front location perched atop volcanic rocks jutting into the sea and surrounded by tide pools alive with every creature imaginable. We were hard pressed to leave because we had so much we wanted right there. For us, that means a beautiful natural environment with great access to sparkling clean ocean swimming, long beach walks, and abundant shell collecting (oops, I don't think that's really pc anymore). The cottage is charming AND really clean, simple in a very organic way suited to the environment, very comfortable and appointed with everything we needed (includng wifi) . The private and romantic master bedroom upstairs feels more like a Tarzan tree house with the shutters up and views of the trees and ocean. Downstairs is a guest bed room and 2nd bath for all day use for changing clothes, and visitors. I love the open air dining room/family room and kitchen. Also an outdoor shower! It's so welcoming and ready for either a great party or a candlelit dinner. There are napping and reading hammocks in the lush garden and a beautifully lit gigantic tree in the center of it all. When we're there we feel away from everything, but the reality is the town of Montezuma is only a scant mile or two away and Cabuya just a bit farther. people are very friendly and laid back so we had ample opportunity to invite newfound friends back to our cottage for drinks or swimming on our almost private beaches. Lots of monkeys and birds and of course, the resident iguanas scampering on the rocks. Best of all, is the ocean just steps away. One of the most beautiful sites we have ever seen. Ocean access like this is almost nowhere to be found any longer. OFc course, lots to do in the surrounding area, as well as the necessary conveniences, but that's not unusual in this area. The owners were very responsive and great online. Unlike many owners, they really treat this place like a home, not a rental. Local Manager is a nice touch, but we never needed to use her. We've been in Sept, May, and now July. All good times to visit! Funny, we've never visited in high season in Dec, but there's always next time!
