At the end of a long, bumpy road lies a place that will captivate you. Quiet, reflective, more animals than you will see in a National Park...here you will get a glimpse of true Costa Rica. Your hosts are stellar. If you have a logistics issue they will make it all right. Spent four nights there and wished it had...

So very kind of you to leave such lovely words. Of course, with guests such as yourselves... it is always a pleasure! We hope to see you back here in the future, or maybe we will see you in the Rockies!

We stayed in Casa Morfo with two children under the age of 8 after staying nearer the centre of Montezuma. It was peaceful with beautiful views and safe for the children to explore. A lovely communal swimming pool plus your own small plunge pool, very helpful knowledgeable couple run the houses. Very well kitted out kitchen so you can cook...

We enjoyed having your family here and thank you for the nice words - I just wish we could have accommodated you earlier so that you could have extended your stay. Next time!

This little gem is a great spot for anyone who wants to explore Montezuma without the nightlife and town bustle. It's super safe, nestled up in the mountains about a mile into a private property. But in 5 minutes, you're in town, enjoying the cuisine and social life, but you have a great little hideaway with an ocean view and...

Agua Vista was the perfect ending to a great vacation. Khalida and Alex welcomed our family with open arms. We stayed in the Casa Trogon, which had 2 bedrooms, super clean kitchen, outdoor shower and nice cool plunge pool. Since we're in the hospitality biz as well, with a bunch of small cottages at Lake Tahoe we really felt right...

My husband and I stayed at Casa Morfo for nine wonderful days on our third trip to Costa Rica and enjoyed every minute. Khalida, Alex and the girls were such a lovely family, all helpful and welcoming. The girls were very informative about the local wildlife as were their parents. The house was lovely, very private, quiet and comfortable all...

What a blast from the past! You would not believe all the changes - come back! It is different to travel with kids, of course...but looking at everything through their eyes in fascinating. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review after so much time!

My wife and I visited Agua Vista on the second part of our honeymoon. We were not disappointed! In fact, we were blown away! Khalida and Alex could not be better hosts with a nicer family.

Wow, what an amazing place! Such a beautiful area, unbelievable view from Agua Vista, such a secluded and lovely place, feel so lucky to have found it.
