  • Paradise

    "Dear Michael and Elizabth, Thank You for a really great trip. You have truly created a special place. I will never forget the trip into the bay or the quad tour and your warm hospitality made us feel as though we had come home. For anyone wanting to stay in this region, Paraise de Miguel is top notch. The house is comfortable and functional with a fantastic view and surrounded by nature. I will certainly return as soon as possible. Two weeks was just not enough. Gracias y Pura Vida."

  • A Great Escape & Luxury Environment

    "Took a large group of business associates and El Castillo met every need for logistics from San Jose, business meetings and personal fun, all in an extremely relaxing and safe environment. WIFI kept us connected as needed and plenty of areas for gathering. Lots to do on the compound- golf (chipping), tennis, huge pool & hot tub, water volleyball, water slide- great games/team building. The mountain/valley views were peaceful and the fireworks they arranged were fantastic. Close to the beach and other adventures but once there, it was hard to leave. The staff were excellent, attentive and communicated very well, they made us feel at home. The chef prepared wonderful meals in several locations on the compound. This was a fantastic venue for pleasure or business- plenty of space for privacy. I have already booked later this year with the family. Highly recommended and actually a great value for all you get."

  • Vistas Infinitas . . . Say's it All!

    "Upon our late arrival, we were greeted with a big smiling welcome from Nickie (house manager), who showed us around your beautiful home! It was more magnificent than depicted on the website, extremely well appointed, kitchen fully equipped and comfortable beds! Every detail thought of, the fans, lighting, books, etc. The landscaping around the home was full of tropical foliage with landscape lighting at night actuating the lipstick palms to bougainvillea framing in the view of the Pacific Ocean from the porch! My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with another couple and your home provided the perfect setting! Each morning began with gazing at the ocean as the sun rose revealing the colors of the flora of the surrounding mountains . . . after breakfast we explored the country, Quepos Fiera (Saturday), Hacienda Baru (nature trail and zip line), Manuel Antonio, the Organic Fiera in San Isidro (Tuesday's), and afternoon's in the pool (very private), until the rains refreshed earth, then the sunsets, what more can I say! We had visits from Toucan's, Humming Bird's and the resident frogs, a real treat! Showering using the outdoor shower, before dinner each night was Pura Vita with orchids peeping over the rail and the mountain side was the shower curtain! The broad selection of reference books gave insight to the birds, animals and culture of Costa Rica! We were so into the outside world that we didn't turn on the satellite TV at all. WiFi handled data transfer with no problem, and annoying bugs were virtually non existent at that altitude. 4x4 recommended, drive slow and look for wildlife! Nickie was a great help and wonderful to share when, where and what about Costa Rica . . . Perfect pick for us, thank you for sharing your home!"

  • Wish I could say that this condo was just as described but............

    "The website and pics cannot prepare you for how beautiful this property is. If I could give it a 10+, I would. Everything imaginable that you would need for a wonderful stay is here. It is tastefully decorated without being overly done, has VERY comfortable bedding, was comfortably spacious and doesn't have a "touristy" feel to it. My travel companion was sick for a couple of days while we were vacationing, and I spent more time in the condo than I normally would, but that was no problem at all. I so enjoyed sitting out on the veranda and enjoying the ocean breeze, the sounds of the waves lapping in, the macaws doing their calls high up in the trees, the beautiful flowers, the hummingbirds..... I could go on and on. To top all this off, the owner, Simone, is an absolute pleasure to work with and provides so many amenities at her property. When she says she offers the special "extras", she really means it. She is a such a nice person and a pleasure to deal with. I will not hesitate to rent this property again next year. Our concierge, Esteban, was simply delightful!!!! It was our distinct pleasure to get to know him and also Luis. They went far and beyond what could ever be expected of them. They are truly wonderful people who you can trust to give you good recommendations and advice on anything Costa Rica! A special thank you to each of them for giving us the unique experience of watching a soccer match... Costa Rican style!!! We felt right at home and were cheering right along. The enthusiasm was contagious as we almost felt like locals while we celebrated the CR victory in the streets. ;o) We also very much enjoyed Marjorie who prepared us an authentic Costa Rican breakfast each morning and served it to us out on the veranda early each morning. Her cooking is to die for and she is a kind person who will take very good care of your every need to keep you comfortable! To sum my review up, I guess one may think I have gone overboard with my compliments, but I only give these high reviews because they are most deserved. This place is well worth the rental fee in itself. However, dealing with the kind, wonderful people that are associated with this rental makes it an unique experience that you don't often find. My only regret is leaving after only a week, but then..................there is always next year!!!!!! Thank you Simone and Esteban for making our vacation one to remember! We will see you again for sure!"
