PERFECTION : breathtaking and unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe how amazed we were when we walked into the property. Everything is simply perfect! The property has been designed so that each travelling party has its own suite : incredibly comfortable king size beds with beach view, private baths and showers and huge walk-ins with safes. No property ever offers such comfort and privacy! The main kitchen is modern with a gas stove and big fridge and everything you need to cook - and more! The patio doors open fully to the balcony with beach view giving you the real sense of living outdoors. The pool is great to refresh and have a drink and the beach with its black volcanic sand and rolling waves is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed discovering the beach and its great seashells within a 20 min. walk right from the house. The property is close to Tamarindo (the hype surf/shop/restaurant place) and to Playa Avellana and its great Lola's restaurant, the absolute best beach to learn surfing. And what about the sunsets... No other words but jaw dropping! We even got the chance to see howler monkeys on our way to Playa Avellana! Kathryn, the house keeper is very warm, friendly and gives such great tips! We toured around to view sloths, Blue Morpho and Great Owl butterflies, the Cortes waterfalls, the Tenorio Volcano and much more. And to top it all off, the owner, Mrs. Kelly Crean, always answered our questions promptly and with good advice. We were a party of 9, 6 adults and three teens and everyone simply had a great time. We treated the property with all the respect it requires because we were so grateful to have access to such a perfect place. We most definitely will recommend and can't wait to come back. PURA VIDA! Can you honestly wish for more? Stop looking and book now!

Great property and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house and beach. Just like the description. Perfect rural Costa Rica feel yet only about 30 mins to Tamarindo or Santa Cruz. We had the beach and waves to ourselves. Also has some small markets and restaurants nearby that were fun to check out.

Wow, A Beautiful Beach home with all the goodies!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to relax- you could stay home and enjoy the pool, the beach and the estuary or go to other local spots. The home was premier quality with all the amenities. We loved opening the kitchen and living area to the deck - and the oceanviews. It was clean and new - quality towels, dishes everything - even games. We loved having a glass of wine in the pool, watching the sunset.

Ocean front private paradise

  • 5 of 5

This rental surpassed all my expectations. The location could not have been better with private access to the beach, beautiful beach walks, amazing variety of local food options and lots of privacy. The house itself was stunning. Super clean, gorgeous ocean views from every room, all the amenities we needed and lovely decor. Kelly was so easy to work with. She made everything easy and straightforward. My typical day included a beach walk, shell collecting, floating in tidepools, ocean swim, pool dip, kayak through estuary and a delicious dinner. Our meals were all within a 10-15 minute drive and were all marvelous. I cant wait to stay here again. As we were packing to go i found myself thinking that i could easily never leave.

Spectacular and surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Costa Rica and the experience was amazing. Castillo de Coral in Playa Junquillal was spectacular! The house was a vacation by itself. The 5 bedrooms suites were beautiful, private, and very comfortable, 4 with ocean front views! The infinity pool was a hit morning, noon and night, even enjoyed a few meals served at the water bar, not to mention the cocktails! The kitchen was totally stocked with all your needs, the bathrooms were grand, and the relaxing atmosphere was the icing on this cake.

The beach is beautiful and very private. The sunsets were beautiful and we had the best views from the second and third story balconies.

The owners have thought of everything. To all the dishes and utensils in the kitchens, the fluffy towels, a BBQ on the balcony, to movies to watch and games to play. I especially appreciated the guest book with many great idea's and tips on where to go and activities to do around the Playa Junquillal area.

We will be returning to Castillo de Coral, my only hesitation in writing my review, is that when it's time for my to book my next trip to Costa Rica, Castillo de Coral will be booked solid!
