Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our 3 children (ages 9-14) and another family, along with their two children (ages 9-12), thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Rancho Rio Montana in March! The house, pool, gardens, mountains, and Pacific Ocean views were all amazing. We went horseback riding through the trails on the property viewing remnants (old home, soccer fields) of previous generations while taking in the incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. Surfing in Nosara was a blast – all nine of us were successful surfers, and we highly recommend this beach for new or experienced surfers. We went zip lining as well with spectacular views again. The village of Nosara was a treat – a neat place to hang out, shop, see the surfers, eat ice cream, and dine at the local restaurants (all types of wonderful choices). The house was amazing – it allowed us to have fun but just as importantly, relax. Between the pool (taking a morning dip after hiking the mountain trails), the open-air design, picking of fruit on the property to make smoothies, comfortable rooms/beds, and the presence of the staff (housekeeper, gardener and cowboys), it was perfect! Shopping the local markets and cooking in the open-air kitchen was an experience as well! The owner's tip of just enjoying the house and maybe have one activity a day worked out well for balancing activities and unwinding. We would recommend this for anyone - families, couples, girls vacations!

This rental will not disappoint

My wife and I spent nine wonderful days at Rio Rancho Montana in February. The house is situated about 1000 feet above the Pacific, and when you are in the infinity pool looking toward the ocean, the pool edge and the horizon blend into one continuous visual treat. The sleeping quarters are luxurious and the living quarters are spacious. The presence of a gardener, a housekeeper, and a full complement of cowboys who live on the property ensures that your every need is met. Many beaches are within a 20-minute drive, including the world-famous surfing mecca of Nosara.

Great Villa for Diverse Group

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at Rancho Rio Montana this summer with 3 other couples. The house could not have been more beautiful or more comfortable. We all found things we loved to do--different beaches, great restaurants, horseback riding, zip lining, yoga. We loved staying at the house and enjoying the gorgeous view, the infinity swimming pool and the well stocked kitchen. The recommendations and directions for restaurants and places to go were very helpful. Everything you will need is at the house. Very nice linens and bath products. Housekeeper and gardener were very helpful. Ranch manage was available when we needed him. The information on the website is accurate. I highly recommend this villa for a family or couples vacation.

The perfect family reunion location

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and I, along with our children, ages 8-30, spent 10 amazing days at Rancho Rio Montana over the Christmas holiday. The house is spectacular; the photos do not do it justice. The kitchen is very well equipped for those that want to cook. The house is very tastefully decorated. I found the information on the web page to be accurate and the book of local information that was at the house was invaluable. From reviews of local restaurants to which beaches to go to at what tide it was all there. The housekeeper and ranch manager were very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the zip lining with Miss Sky and dinner at La Luna on Playa Pelada. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. It would also be a fantastic getaway for couples.

From the Owner

Our love affair with Nosara began 25 years ago and our two twenty-something daughters consider Nosara their second home. We bought the Rancho Rio Montana property in the 1990's commited to maintaining the property as a vibrant working cattle ranch which supports several local families. In 2004 we finally decided it was time to build and we finished our home in 2008. We have hosted many wonderful gatherings of family and friends over the past five years.

From the Owner

Our house was built by us as a labor of love: from the 'eco friendly' features to the custom wood work built entirely with wood harvested on the Ranch. The tranquility and privacy of the Ranch location is unique and what we love the most. When asked, our family and virtually all of our guests will tell you that the horseback riding on the Ranch with the cowboys is there very favorite activity. As wonderful as it is to hang out at the beach there is something special about leaving all the heat and dust behind and heading up to the Ranch at the end of the day to enjoy the cooling breezes and spectacular sunsets.
