About the property

main house 1 BR 1 BA -second house 1 BR 1 BA - sleeps 4

Since dec 2014 we work with a solar grid system for electricity. Hot water comes from a solar heater. Come and enjoy !

This lovely property is located on the cliffs above Playa Cedros. The large 22000 m2 lot ensures our guests complete privacy while not being isolated from other homes in the area. There are two homes on the property, ideal for friends and families with older children. The main house is a large studio with 1 queen bed, bathroom and kitchen. Living and dining areas are outside. It offers a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill.

The second house is about 30 feet from the main house. It has a bedroom upstairs with a queen bed. The sink, toilet and rustic outdoor shower are on the first floor. Both houses back a wildlife corridor. Monkeys, iguanas, and agouti abound… There are many native fruit trees for our guests to enjoy. Ocean breezes keep the homes comfortable. 4X4 recommended.

Cabo Blanco National Park and the little town of Cabuya are just 4 km to the South - Cabuya is a great base for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing, wildlife watching and everything nature lovers are looking for. Montezuma is 3 km North and offers many restaurants and shops. You are minutes from one of the best beaches in our area. Playa Cedros is known for its' long surf break. Rio Cedros is a short distance away with a fresh water lagoon and waterfalls up river.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Mr Berger,

We really enjoyed our vacations in your house.

It's a real paradise.

We loved the view on the sea, be in the jungle, watch the animals and refresh ourselves in the pool.

Everything has been well thought for the comfort and the pleasure.

Our friends loved the place as much as we did.

Congratulations for the choice of the spot....

We may come back....

Best regards,

The most unique views in the world

  • 5 of 5

This house has the most extraordinary location I have ever seen. Sitting at the edge of a high promontory, to the right it overlooks the canopy of the rain forest and the hills beyond. To the left, it overlooks the wild and beautiful Pacific coast. The house also backs onto the rainforest itself, meaning a constant stream of wildlife visitors, right up close. We saw more animals from the front verandah than we did in all our outings, including the Cabo Blanco preserve.

The house is also very beautifully designed, relaxing and comfortable. We loved every minute we spend there, rain or sunshine.

A 4X4 is a must to get to the house; if it wasn't located way up in the hills it would not have those views!

Luxury is in the privacy and setting

  • 5 of 5

OMG. Says it best!! Up on a mountaintop all by yourself just minutes from a tipico village with a fabulous restaurant: Cabuya’s coffee house.

Simple accommodations.but clean. Roads are not for the timid but easy to get used to. More like river beds then roads.

Do not consider bringing young kids. One side of small house drops off to the jungle.

Can’t wait to come back.

Absolutely perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 8 days here. The property is perfectly situated on the edge of a jungle valley so you don't have to leave the porch for the canopy tours...we saw all manner of wildlife from monkeys to geckos.

The beauty and solitude were second to none, and we were super thankful we resisted the temptation to rent something 'on the beach' and go for this instead. The walk to the beach is 10 minutes and very steep, but our 9 year old had no problem making it.

La Selva brewery is just down the road and fantastic (the owner Jacob and his kids were wonderful hosts) and we couldn't believe our good fortune in getting fish from the local fisherman in Cayuba.

The kitchen was small but well equipped and we prepared most of our own meals at the house.

The pool is perfect. We haven't encountered one we like as much.

We made it to Montezuma falls (make sure and hit the upper falls as well, and go early to avoid the crowds) and had a lovely wander up Rio Cedros to the falls completely alone.

This is a little traveled corner of the world, and so worth it. It's a bit of a journey from San Jose, but the ferry is lovely (as is the overland route). If you have some time and want an adventure travel through the center of the Nicoya Peninsula instead of along the coast--it's rugged cattle country with a different landscape and really lovely.

Our squad is already scheming a return mission. We can't say enough wonderful things about Joachim's property and hosting. Everything was completely perfect--including his exemplary pool cleaning and landscaping!

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at this property. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teen boys. The 2 houses were perfect for our family. The views are stunning and the proximity to the jungle is perfect. We were able to enjoy seeing so much wildlife during our stay. The kitchen is well stocked with all you need to cook which we did quite a lot of. Cobano and Montezuma both have markets with ample selections for meals. The walk to the beach is strenuous, but doable. The return hike is difficult. We preferred to make the short drive to the main can stop anywhere along it to go to the beach and only see 1 or 2 people. We stayed for a week. It was not nearly enough. We enjoyed snorkeling and ziplining, but the inshore fishing was the best! What can beat a relaxing boat ride culminating in tight lines with beautiful yellow fin tuna?! Most days we did some sort of half day activity and spent the other half on property enjoying the pool and the views. I don't recommend the property for small children as the second house lacks guard rails, but for older kids, it is perfect. We really cannot say enough good things about the property and our hosts. Pura vida!

Wonderful spot

This is a stunning property. I can't recommend it enough. We were a family of 4 (11 and 13 year old children) and loved our time here.
