We did not hear a sound except those of the birds or the charming stream next to the house. We had beautiful sunset the first night which we enjoyed with a glass of wine on the great porch. The house is recent and well thought out for 2 couples or a small family. Kitchen was well equiped for cooking and dining in which we did both nights as once we got to the house after a full day of activities all we wanted was to relax in this great setting. Thanks Oscar for your great hospitality. I will be sure to recommend your casa. Actually just did that today to a fellow classmate!

                                                                                                      We spent 4 nights at Joe's beautiful house in mid August. It was a joy to wake up to the constantly changing views of the volcano each morning, and the amazing birdsong from the surrounding trees and the garden. We had a mixture of sun and torrential showers during our stay but the sun room upstairs is a wonderful spot from which to enjoy the surroundings, whatever the weather. The gazebo in the garden is a glorious place to sip a morning coffee and watch the toucans in the trees. We also loved having the pool to unwind in after being out and about all day. We cooked dinner some evenings, making use of the well stocked kitchen. The beds are wonderfully comfortable and the bathrooms well equipped with lovely spacious showers. We had planned to use the sofabed/futon for one of our two teenage sons, but it wasn't comfortable or big enough so they ended up sharing the double bed. It would definitely be in keeping with the overall high standard of the house to have a new sofabed. Considering how wet the weather can be, it would be useful to have a clothes airer on which to hang and dry wet clothes, or alternatively, a tumble dryer. We had to hang wet coats and trousers on the backs of chairs and couldn't really get anything dry. As we were travelling for another 5 days after leaving El Castillo, this meant packing wet clothes to take with us. Tomas and Ana from La Gavilana were really helpful and hospitable, on our arrival and on subsequent visits to La Gavilana. They made us a delicious breakfast one morning and we bought some of Tomas's homemade hot sauce, and his tincture for insect bites. We had great food at Howlers and also at Pizza Johns - we walked there after a visit to the amazing Butterfly Conservatory. Well worth a visit, and the student volunteers are really informative and friendly. We swam in the Lake at the access point past Howlers and went to the 'free' hot springs opposite El Tabacon ...like a really warm jacuzzi. We ziplined at Skytrek and also did a Skywalk there. Loved the ziplining and the walk was interesting, although we had expected to see more animals than we did. Overall, apart from the extremely challenging roads, to which Joe refers on his information pack, and which did make us less inclined to just 'hop in the car' and explore as widely as we would normally do, El Castillo is a magical place, where you get a sense of the real Costa Rica.
