Una casa realmente DIVINA!!

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos los últimos días de nuestras vacaciones en Costa Rica en CASA DIVINA. Y fue un cierre espectacular para nuestras vacaciones!!!.

Somos una familia de 6 y vivimos en Argentina. Nunca habiamos estado antes en Costa Rica y quedamos sorprendidos por la belleza del lugar y la amabilidad de su gente. Nos encantó.

La casa esta algo alejada del pueblo de Montezuma (3 o 4 KM) pero para nosotros fue lo mejor ya que nos permitió disfrutar de la tranquilidad del lugar. El paisaje y las colinas de Montezuma son especiales y CASA DIVINA ensambla perfectamente con la paz de ese lugar. La casa es super cómoda y todo funcionó perfecto. La cocina esta integramente equipada y todo está cuidado hasta el último detalle.

Los atardeceres sobre las colinas, las cascadas "secretas" y el paseo con "Montezuma Crew" hasta la Isla Tortuga fueron increibles!!

Creo que Casa Divina esta ubicada en uno de los lugares más lindos de la península.

Muchas gracias a Ximena, la property manager, que nos ayudó y nos orientó sobre donde ir y que hacer. Una genia! Y Felicitaciones a Kelsey por tener una casa tan linda.!!

Tune out, Relax and Watch the Geckos

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa Divina and it was fantastic, the perfect respite from a harsh northern winter.

Montezuma is a beach town close by that has one of the best restaurants I've ever been to (if you're into amazing food on a beach while the sun sets over the ocean). In the other direction is Cobano, a typical Costa Rican small town we really enjoyed, even though it's not a real tourist destination. A bakery with a toy car out front (that the two year old loved), a produce store, a couple of grocery stores and a glimpse into every day Costa Rican life.

We made arrangements with the same cab driver every day, so by the end of the week we met his family, visited their farm and enjoyed some freshly made tortillas, queso fresco, roasted cashews and newly picked mangoes.

We also hired someone to cook for us, which was a great decision, since we didn't want our friends to cook and clean for us while we chased our two year old. He bought our groceries, prepared a mid-morning snack or smoothie and then later a formal lunch.

At night, we would laze around the many lazing areas and watch the geckos. It was the perfect trip to slow down someone who's been working hard or stressing out. I would definitely go back, and imagine it often now that I am back to the daily grind.

A Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We found love in this perfect paradise! Our group of 5 ventured into the Montezuma area because we have heard nothing but incredible stories about this beautiful place. We chose Casa Divina because it was tucked privately into the hills, but still had easy access to Montezuma and Cobano. Casa Divina was everything we hoped it would be and more, the pictures from the website are a perfect depiction of what the property truly is, for all the photos we took, none could do justice to show how gorgeous and luxurious this property was! The whole house feels big, grand and open. The kitchen was spacious and beautiful and made cooking very enjoyable, it was very well equipped with everything you need, the appliances were nice and the poured concrete countertops were a great touch. The open concept from the kitchen, living room and dining room was great, there are SO many windows and you feel like you are outside when you are in. Our favorite space in the house was definitely the outdoor, covered lounge area; breathtaking views, shaded and comfortable; in the evenings the forest was alive with sounds and it was perfect and relaxing to sit outside and take it all in. We spent many days lounging in the refreshing swimming pool. The bedrooms were very open, spacious and tastefully decorated the beds were comfortable and we all slept well each night. Even though we had air conditioning in the bedrooms, we hardly used it because there was always a nice breeze through the house at night. You certainly don’t have to have a car to get around here, but the terrain is quite hilly and we would highly recommend renting the ATV that is available at the property, it made trips into town a breeze. The people caring for the property were very kind and welcoming, we always felt safe. I could keep writing but I’m running out of characters! Make sure you take in all the beauty of Montezuma, stop in all the shops and talk with locals because you never know what you will find. Even if you can’t speak Spanish, the people in the area appreciate when you try to make an effort. Montezuma is the ultimate beach bum paradise; you will fall in love with it just as we did.

We highly recommend this villa and the Montezuma area! You will fall in LOVE! We returned to cold snowy Canada and I have to say, I feel like a beach bum trapped inside a snow globe. We will be back, much sooner than later.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The house was truly beautiful, with many architecural attributes, such as the outdoor shower, pool and hot tub combo, cement floors and walls, and endless glass! The beds were so comfortable, it was sometimes difficult to maintain that morning walk!

We were at times a family of 4, 5 or 6 adults and never did we feel crowded in the space. We could always fine our own space if we desired it. The house was about an hour walk into Montezuma, which we did a number of times. We also made use of the Quad. We would highly recommend a car as there are too many great places to visit. We highly recommend the bakery in Cabuya...the best smoothies on the planet as well as the beach at Santa Teresa. Spectacular.

A huge thanks to Kelsey, the owner, who answered numerous questions prior to our booking and also to her team at Casa Divina. Ximena, Rode and Jhiero, who made everyday a pleasure. They took care of us like we were family. Thankyou.

We would highly recommend this property for short or long stays. The area is quiet, except for the odd nocturnal bird, howler monkeys in the mountains or horses at the neighboring property. There is plenty to do, if you choose....fantastic restaurants, zip lining, hikes, waterfalls, snorkling, music, Saturday farmers markets, breathtaking beaches, volunteering at turtle rescue stations or just simply being lazy in your hammock.

Our only criticism would be that the Internet was not always reliable. Local eateries in the villages often came to the rescue.

We would Definately recommend this property.

Thanksgiving weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in the area, but we have rented a lot of houses in costa rica. This one is a short bit off the main road but it feels remote. You should have an SUV ithis area. It takes about 10 min to get to Montezuma. We fit in two families easily, but did have the littlest ones in the kings with us.

Most importantly everything was excellent. Beautiful home, wonderful view, well equipped, and great pool. The manager Ximena is very helpful and 110% responsive as well.

A solid 5 star rating is deserved. If we are back in the area we would rent here again.

Modern and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Casa Divina was a fantastic place to stay for a small family reunion in late March. We were welcomed by the lovely property manager with fresh fruit and instructions for the region.

It's a perfect quiet place for a family to gather, nestled on a beautiful road overlooking rolling farm fields and jungle.

The design elements are stunning, and it's a real pleasure to stay in such a well-thought-out home.

The kitchen is fully equipped to cook at home, with grocery stores in the nearest town, Cobano, a 10 minute drive away.

It's a quick drive from the funky town of Montezuma with its incredible beaches, yoga classes and great restaurants.

Anamaya Resort is an even shorter drive, where you can join in yoga classes and eat beautiful organic meals.

Good surfing can be found at Playa Grande, beyond the town of Montezuma, and world class surfing can be found a 45 minute drive away to the towns of Malpais, Santa Theresa and Playa Hermosa.

The photos give a sense of the gorgeous modern design of the house, but the feeling of being at Casa Divina -- lounging by the pool at sunset, listening to birds chirp while eating dinner on the balcony, rising to the sounds of the jungle -- can only be experienced if you're actually there.
