  • Very Nice house and incredible host

    "The house was perfect for our family. Very clean, spacious and the view on the volcano was such a bonus !!! Nancy, the host, been incredible with us. She helped us to book tours, gave us lot of advices about what to do and see in the area. Tasting a good coffee on the balcony with a red maccaw at 10 meters from us has been an unfogettable expérience. 100% for El Castillo, the house and the host !"

  • I Want To Retire Here

    "After a long flight from our winter weather we landed in this paradise. The setting and the home are to die for. I did not expect such a gorgeous place. In the evening we relaxed on the chaise lounges with a few cocktails and bowls of fresh fruit. The darkness in the evening is wonderful. Starry nights (very romantic.) Fresh breezes waft through the home which is extremely refreshing. Our host and hostess Sam and Roxie were very warm and helpful throughout our stay. After a few days we settled into a very pleasant routine. Coffee and fresh fruit by the pool, then a 20 minute walk to the village. Mosey around the market, talk with the locals (very happy bunch.) Then off for lunch. We tried to go to a different cafe each day to sample the local cuisine. Our favourite was Antanos in town. We were always delighted to arrive back at this home with its lush surroundings together with the lime and mango trees. We were so relaxed at the end of our stay we nearly missed our flight back to reality. All in all, I would recommend this home highly."

  • Simply Extravagant

    "I am another first time user of VRBO and if this is what we should expect, I will only use this site for future travel. We arrived in the afternoon and after driving up the mountain, we weren’t sure what to expect. Never in a million years did we imagine that we would be staying at such an incredible place. The pictures really don’t do it justice. The home was amazing, the landscaping was beautifully manicured and the view was spectacular. We were here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. We enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi as we watched the sun set and loved cooking our meals in such a beautiful kitchen, which was perfectly stocked with cooking utensils, coffee maker and grinder, blender, etc. The location was perfect too! Away from the town but not too far away that you couldn’t go shopping at the supermarket or into the town for the many restaurants and shops. I also want to say how easy it was to make this happen. Joe was great in answering my questions, talking with me on the phone and making sure I felt very comfortable with our stay. I just can’t say enough good things. We can’t wait to come back and bring our family. Thank you so much!!!"

  • Early Easter visit

    "Pretty property. Comfortable. Lots of room. There is a beautiful back yard with a great view. The little grocery was great for fresh bread, egss, etc. We were very comfortable and the location was close to Alejuela's zoo etc."
