Great house with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our two children and I, along with another family of four, spent a wonderful week in Castillo Del Mar.

The house has a great layout, with plenty of space, both indoor and outside, for our group of eight. The main indoor living space is located on the second floor, overlooking the pool area. It consists of a living room, kitchen and dining. The furnishings are comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen has everything that you would need in terms of utensils, pots, pans, etc. The two bedrooms with king beds are very nice, and each has its own outdoor sitting area. The two bedrooms with twin beds are a bit more basic but work fine for kids.

The best thing about this house is the roof deck. Both during the day and in the evening, this was by far the most used area in the house. The views from the roof are spectacular.

There is a small white sand beach directly in front of the house which is a good place to snorkel at low tide. The walk to Playa Negra is approximately ten minutes where there is a nice restaurant/bar and great surfing.

Jarrod and Meaghan were available, both before and during our trip to answer any questions and set us up with some great catering options and activities.

I highly recommend this house and the area as a great get-away for family and friends.

Amazing and relaxing, has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The Castillo was amazing. Beautifully updated with a great kitchen and comfortable sleeping. The view was perfect, we were sad to leave the Costa Rican sunsets, watched nightly from the top deck. We brought 3 kids ages from 11 - 22, all three had a great time, swimming in the pool, sunning and exploring. Lots of outside space to relax and enjoy the gorgeous Costa Rican weather. A truly relaxing stress free vacation.

Wildly Sophisticated

  • 5 of 5

Our gang of five loved our week stay at Castillo Del Mar (the name of the home we stayed in) in the village of Playa Negra! Our home was majestic, spacious and comfortable with modern conveniences throughout and close views of the Pacific and coast line. We were a short drive or walk by the healthy to a beach side hotel and charming restaurants and cafes. The French DeVina was amazing! The wildness came from the dirt road we traveled on near Playa Negra. It was safe but rough in spots especially after a hard rain. We thought the "monkey roads" added to the charm and provided some laughs and adventure. They made you feel you were really away. Castillo Del Mar, Playa Negra, and Costa Rica are not to be missed. We'll be back soon!

Fabulous place to relax, enjoy the views

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful! There were 7 of us staying for the week, and with the huge roofdeck (great place for dinners & massages), the ocean off the back lawn, and plenty of space around the pool, we never felt crowded. The kitchen upgrade is perfect - we did some group dinners and the island makes it very easy to prepare meals. It was easy walking distance to some restaurants, so that made it nice, too. But the best part is just hanging in the pool, looking at the surf!

Don't think twice, book it!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property, even better than the pictures! There were only four of us on this trip but it could easily accommodate two families. The pool is great because it is partly shaded and accessible from many of the bedrooms and there is a built in bar area. The rooftop deck is incredible! Had massages up there near sunset. Awesome! The rooms all have air conditioners so we were very comfortable. Jarrod and Meaghan are wonderful and were very responsive to anything we needed. An incredible place to vacation! Can't wait to go back.

Castillo del Mar

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is lovely, lots of local flavor. There were 8 of us total and plenty of room. It was a great combo of cozy around the pool, but enough nooks and crannies (read: decks with amazing views) to get some quiet time as well. The house has a lot of amenities to manage the heat (screens, AC, shaded areas), and still has incredible views of the ocean and the mountains behind. Dinner on the roofdeck is not to be missed, and the kitchen was large enough to accommodate our group's shared meals. It is within walking distance of the local small town - check out Cafe Play Negra while you're there - as well as a surfing beach and several other attractions. I would definitely stay here again.
