This playful space is also an ideal backdrop and stage for special EVENTS.
And the best chefs of the area can help accommodate your culinary wishes! (optional).
'TRIANGLE OF FUN'
Just a short drive away are the other 2 famous beach-and-surf destinations, Mal Pais and Santa Theresa. Together with picturesque and eccentric Montezuma, these 3 towns create a fabulous 'triangle of fun' on this tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, truly one of the most unique areas Costa Rica has to offer!
Since roads in Costa Rica come in all flavors, 4-WD (rental) cars are always a good idea!
The easiest way to get from San Jose's airport to Montezuma is via the short 30 minute SANSA or NatureAir flights to Tambor, then a 30 minute taxi ride to MONTEZUMA.
If you prefer to drive from San JosĂŠ, plan approximately 4 - 5 hours (1.5 hours to Puntarenas, 1.5 hour car-ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya to Paquera, 1 hour to Montezuma).
Also a private van shuttle can be arranged to pick you up in San JosĂŠ.
first-class GOLF is just 10 miles away! (Los Dolphines Resort, Tambor)

We stayed at a Lunatica Lounge for a week in May. What an amazing place! The property and house is very private. The ocean and jungle views are breathtaking . We loved everything about this place. We loved how you can open all the large glass doors so you feel like you are outside even when inside. I love to cook, the kitchen was well equipped so I could prepare and serve great meals. The showers in this house are great, we tried a different one each day. We loved the house during the day- lots of wildlife to watch, We saw howler and whiteface monkeys, iguanas, lots of birds and butterflies. At night, the whimsical lights were great, as well as the color changing pool lights. The town of Montezuma is fun. Make sure to hike to the waterfalls and swim at a Montezuma Beach. The staff including Billy and Lisavette were very helpful. This is the second property we rented from Ralf, the owner. He was great to work with. We would definitely go back to Lunatica Lounge.
Best part of this property: everything
Worse part of this property; Having to leave!

We had an awesome time & have many amazing experiences to remember through our thousand pictures we have taken! The house was an awesome design & could tell a lot of thought & engineering went into it. Especially to have the great views from everywhere in the house. Lisavette provided us with a lot of information for the activities we wanted to do as well as setting up restaurant reservations & communicating with our cook since our Spanish was not very good.She was always a phone call away & checked on us often.The house was cleaned every day nicely and since there were so many insects of all kinds always around, this was much appreciated. The cook prepared great Costa Rican food for 3 evening meals that we had on the patio. We caught so much Mahi Mahi with Ivan, the owner of Zuma Tours, that we had to give it to your help & the cook. The highlight was enjoying the monkeys . We saw the entire howler monkey family one day go by us in the trees off the patio. The white-faced monkeys showed up every day too.This was a great vacation to get away from it all and relax!

My husband and I just spent a week at Lunatica Lounge to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I really can't say enough good things about this house. It is just as beautiful and amazing as the pictures and the views are even better. The location was great and the service was equally wonderful. We were greeted by a concierge to show us to the house and do a full walk through. In addition, they helped my husband in the planning process (the trip was a surprise to me). They made some fabulous recommendations to include dinner being prepared for us at the house (some of the best food I've ever had) and massages one morning. They also gave us the "lay of the land" and gave us restaurant and excursion tips. It was an amazing experience and would recommend this house to anyone. We are already planning a trip back with a group of friends!

Hello Ralf, just a short note to let you know how much we loved our vacation at Lunatica Lounge. The house is magnificent, actually better than the pictures we saw, and the place is great for a fun vacation. We all want to thank you for sharing it with us.

Lunaticalounge is an amazing vacation rental. Set in beautiful Costa Rica, with the jungle all around. Monkeys visiting at 4:00 pm every day. Iguanas walking around all over. Sunrises that won't allow anyone to "wake up on the wrong side of bed". Add the beautiful bird sounds and espresso to those sunrises for the ingredients of a wonderful day. The house, the pool, and the jungle setting is absolutely lovely and rejuvenating. It's in a great location for exploring as well. You're 5 minutes from the Butterfly Gardens, where some waterfalls are. You're only 10 minutes from Montezuma and 30 minutes from Mal Pais and Santa Theresa. We had a wonderful time, thank you.

Lunatica was truly one of the most memorable and enjoyable properties at which we have ever stayed. We travel extensively throughout Latin america and have been to Costa Rica (staying at different houses) eight times but nothing compares to Lunatica. Ralf and Nina thought of everything - comfort abounds, aesthetically the house and grounds are spectacular (the views amazing) and the privacy is unparalleled. The staff was friendly, efficient and not obtrusive. The house is meticulously maintained. Perhaps one of the nicest features was how incredibly helpful the owners were in preparing us for the trip as well as when we were on-site. We are already anticipating our next visit!

It must be a mirage, it can't possibly be this wonderful! From booking the property to assistance at arrival working with the owners was a joy. The drive to the property is an adventure but it is all worth it once you get onto the property, drive between rows of palms, round a corner, and see your private modern masterpiece beckoning. Wow. And that's just the first glance! The living areas are beautiful and grand, the kitchen so much fun to use, the bedrooms over the top fun and glamorous, the master suite unbelievable, and the pool, oh, the pool, connecting it all and offering unbelievable views of the jungle and ocean below. Wow. What can be said? Waking in bed to either a wall of glass or, for the more daring, slide the glass away to be fully open to step into the pool and the view of the sunrise. We understand that the area offers some of the best beaches, surfing, hiking, tours, and adventure in a country known for all of the above but...We were here for one week and it took five days to get us to leave this amazing home for any reason other than more food and wine!

Think of those glossy magazine articles with impossibly beautiful people in impossibly beautiful places...in Lunatica Lounge, that's you! The grand scale, the style; you're almost thankful for the semi-challenging drive from town because it keeps out the papparazi. This was a perfect space to chill with friends, spend hours in and around the sparkling pool, read a book, tease the monkeys or turn up the music and dance. The lovely folk who took care of all the household stuff were cheerful, unobtrusive and faultless. In a way, Lunatica Lounge is too nice. Almost everything else you'll experience in Costa Rica will be, at best, at least one notch down.
