3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (sleeps 6)

(Si vous préférez, nous parlons aussi français)

Blessed with year-round cooling sea breezes as the name suggests, Brisa del Pacifico is a luxurious 2 acre retreat located on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.

Situated in the lush 25 acre eco-community of Armonia, this very private villa offers a unique sanctuary despite its proximity to the vibrant and picturesque village of Montezuma and the convenient shopping of Cobano. Relax in the salt water infinity pool with its stunning panoramic views, spend lazy days on the patio or ask Ginette, our trilingual (English, Spanish and French) property manager for her suggestions to plan all manner of adventures and excursions throughout this charming area. We're located minutes away from white sand beaches and the famous surfing beaches of Montezuma and Santa Teresa.

Each room comes complete with individually controlled energy efficient air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. The master bedroom boasts a 4 poster luxury bed, walk in closet, adjoining master bath with double granite sinks and double Jacuzzi for that luxurious soak overlooking the pool and property.

The second bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, has a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with double sinks and bathtub. The third bedroom, also furnished with a queen bed, has an adjacent full bathroom including a shower, with direct access to the deck and pool. All bedroom furniture is designed by the builder and hand made from local farmed laurel. Solar panels on the roof provide hot water for the house and electrical for the pool, a further testament to the eco-friendly nature of this home.

The fully equipped and spacious kitchen/great room comes with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Large sliding glass doors lead onto a covered lanai overlooking the infinity pool and gardens, replete with flowers, fruit trees and various indigenous mature trees which are home to all manner of wildlife such as toucans, parrots and monkeys. The lanai also features outdoor ceiling fans, energy efficient lighting and comfortable lounge chairs. An outdoor shower located at one end of the pool provides a refreshing way to cool down.

Outside stairs lead up to a rooftop tiled terrace with breathtaking views of the ocean and property. A gas barbecue and outdoor sink on the terrace provide a pleasant alternative to cooking in the kitchen.

Early morning walks down nature trails to the river which runs through Armonia’s 25 acres will give you glimpses of iguanas, howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, armadillos, toucans, hummingbirds, parrots and other wildlife.

Only 4 minutes by car, taxi or bus to the village of Montezuma, you can enjoy activities for every age group and interest: beautiful waterfalls, canopy tours, ziplining, hiking, birdwatching, Cabo Blanco and Curu Nature Reserves, sport fishing, surfing, snorkling, ocean tours to nearly islands, horseback riding, yoga, massages, concerts, restaurants, art exhibitions, and vibrant nightlife.

Brisa del Pacifico has the added distinction of being located in one of the world’s only four “blue zones”. Come and experience Costa Rica’s “pura vida” lifestyle at Brisa del Pacifico.

L’endroit par excellence pour les amoureux de la nature….

  • 5 of 5
Une maison coquette et spacieuse qui permet de profiter de la faune et de la flore costaricaine en toute intimité, loin de la pollution et des embouteillages. En un mot le Paradis!
Ayant quitté un Canada enneigé et froid, nous nous gavions littéralement de petits déjeuners, composés principalement de fruits locaux, pris sur la magnifique terrasse. En fait nous étions dehors du matin au soir voulant profiter des richesses naturelles de ce beau pays : le parcours de 2,5 km dans la forêt vierge du Cabo Blanco qui aboutit sur une plage à vous couper le souffle. Les longues baignages dans les eaux chaudes de la plage de Tambor. Que ce soit la nage, le surf, le bicycle, la randonnée, le choix d’activités abonde. Ou tout simplement lézarder comme un Gecko au bord de la jolie piscine.
Une expérience à réitérer !

Owner's Response: Merci Catherine! Nous étions ravis de vous accueillir à Brisa del Pacifico, et surtout de savoir que vous avez pleinement profité de tout ce que peut offrir ce pays magnifique. Vous avez tout à fait raison, c’est un pays où on passe la plupart de sa vie dehors – sur la terrace, dans la piscine, ou en excursion. J’avoue que notre plus grand plaisir est de pouvoir prendre tous les repas dehors sur la terrace, avec vue superbe sur la nature abondante. Nous espérons que vous reviendrez bientôt à Brisa del Pacifico!

A beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
Brian and I would like to express our gratitude to you. We needed a quiet place to unwind and recharge our batteries. Your home was very private and luxurious. Your kitchen contained everything we needed and more...Wildlife visited us everyday. Montezuma was close for our long walks along the beach. We could have stayed longer! We hope we can return one day.
With kind regards,
Hope and Brian

Beautiful modern house

  • 4 of 5
Excellent property. Our two teens enjoyed each having a private room and we enjoyed that they were well separated from the master suite. House is well maintained with many amenities but is not 5 star luxury. The beds are excellent, kitchen well equipped for real cooking and the pool is wonderful, though not huge. The setting is private and quiet with beautiful view of trees and sky. You will need a 4x4 vehicle. And get the best one you can afford - money well spent. Owners and property manager provide top notch customer service.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property Doug, and for noting that Gini provides top notch service. She certainly enjoys meeting all of our guests from different countries, she is very dedicated and responds immediately to all manner of requests. And yes, our beds are wonderfully comfortable, we’ve had many favourable comments about them! A 4X4 is always recommended in Costa Rica if you’re venturing off the beaten path in the Nicoya Peninsula, but without question those breathtaking views are worth the effort. We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and hope to welcome you back to Brisa del Pacifico soon!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were so excited to come here. After seeing all the nice pictures and reading the great reviews, we were so ready for our vacation. In advance we exchanged several emails with Siobhan and Hugues and received very detailed and helpful information regarding the house and surroundings. So we thought we are well prepared what to expect but when we arrived even our 2 teenaged kids gaped with their mouths open. What a beautiful place! Gina, the property manager was greeting us with a very warm welcome and showed us around answering every question and giving tips where to eat locally. We loved the layout of the house; it feels like home being away from home. Everything you might need is provided; it is clean, cozy, and comfortable.
We had breakfast on the patio every morning during our 8 day stay; often we stayed half of the day and enjoyed the great pool watching wildlife from the early morning to dusk. There are so many different species of birds to find. We saw up to 6 toucans in the papaya tree; those are very funny creatures. We had at least 2 coatis visiting the property regularly; they just walked by, mainly ignoring us. We saw and more often heard howler monkeys in the trees.
We visited different places: the Saturday market, little stores and restaurants in Montezuma; Cabuya- which has some nice little restaurants and great café and you can by fresh local fish; Playa Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa, Cobano. We all enjoyed zip lining and jumping the waterfall. We went on a day snorkeling trip and also visited Reserva Natural Cabo Blanco. There are so many things to see and to do but we always came back fairly soon to enjoy the pool and relaxing patio again. We are very thankful getting such an opportunity for a wonderful family vacation. Everyone had an amazing time and we would love to comeback sooner than later! Thank you!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review Kristen, thank you! We are thrilled that your family had such a great time here; it truly is an unspoiled and marvelous region of Costa Rica.

I’m glad you were able to see so much wildlife. The other day while we were eating lunch on the patio we saw two white faced monkeys not 10 feet from us, one of them scampering up the papaya tree to steal a fruit, the other standing guard. Their little escapade was over in a minute, and although we didn’t have time to grab our cameras the memory is certainly etched in our minds! We are up with the sun every morning and find it’s the best time to see many species of hummingbirds, magpie jays, doves, parrots and toucans, to name just a few. Butterflies abound, and of course we have many coatis (pizote in Spanish) who come for a daily visit to see if there’s anything interesting going on. Howler monkeys can be heard daily, and seem partial to making appearances in the trees near the end of the house where our laundry facilities are located. All in all, it’s very difficult to spend a few days here without seeing an abundance of wildlife.

Gini is wonderful, isn’t she? After living here for 27 years she knows everyone and everything in the region, and always ensures our guests have the best that the region has to offer. We have her on speed dial! And thank you for the detailed description of the many wonderful activities that can be found in the region. We really hope to see you all back here again very soon!

The perfect honeymoon spot!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing for privacy! The feature was the infinity pool overlooking the nature reserve! Close to town! Owners and the property manager were excellent to deal with. 5 stars for a fantastic honeymoon experience.

Owner's Response: You were our first honeymoon couple, Kelsey and Mike, and we are thrilled that you chose Brisa del Pacifico to launch your lives together! As you so correctly noted, our house is a lovely sanctuary, away from the hustle and noise of everyday life. Although we are conveniently located close to both Montezuma and Cobano, the lush vegetation and Armonia’s 25 acres of natural beauty ensure both peace and privacy!

Gini, our property manager, works hard to ensure all of our guests are given the 5 star treatment, so we appreciate your approval! We hope to welcome you back to Brisa del Pacifico in the very near future. Pura vida!

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place to stay then at the "Brisa del Pacifico" for our vacation to the Nicoya Peninsula in late March / early April of this year. The house was well maintained and very comfortable in a private eco community that is surrounded by nature at its best, and with the stunning views from the beautiful salt water pool, you will truly think you are in "Heaven"!, Many mornings were just spent at the pool area taking in the view and the abundant bird wildlife, saying, "it doesn't get any better than this" !

What really sold us to come here however, were the owners, Siobhan and Hugues. From the very outset of our inquiry to the property, they went out of their way to answer our numerous e mails...I can tell you, you won't go wrong dealing with theses wonderful people and the info they sent us covered everything we needed to know about the rental and the area in general. I have leased a number of times before using Home Away, and can tell you, there is no one more thorough then these owners in covering your concerns and needs. Absolutely, the best!

As far as activities, we hardly ever stayed put, visiting the 'Curu Wildlife reserve" for a day of hiking and a great meal next to the visitor shop. You will need reservations for a meal, but we just asked when we finished our first hike and they took us in. Also, took the long hike to the beach at the Cabo Blanco Nature reserve. A 4 hour round trip, but a must, for the breath taking views of the beach and the nature of the park... A trip out to the Isle of Tortuga by boat is also a must. Arrange through Eco tours in Montezuma, as Gini the property manager said they were the best and they were!. Also consider going to the Cabo Blanco Butterfly farm. A little off the path in Cabuya, but definitely worth it. You can then stop for a smoothie or a great meal at the Panaderia restaurant on your way back to Cabuya... We stopped there 3 times, as it was so relaxing and enjoyable.

Bottom line, there is just so much to do and see in the Nicoya area, that there is no question, you will love it here! You will definitely be making the right choice with this property and its wonderful owners!!!

We had a blast!!!

It means so much to us that our guests enjoy the property and the area as much as we do. And your helpful suggestions on things to do and see in the area will help out our future guests enormously. We do hope you'll come and enjoy Brisa del Pacifico again very soon, and we look forward to keeping in touch!
