  • The Hidden Gem of Central America

    "I have spent several months traveling in Costa Rica and the neighboring Countries of Central America. To say that 'El Castillo De Esparza' is THE most grandest place that I have had the privilege to experience would be an understatement. Surrounded by such all-around beauty, inside and out, to dine on fresh local fare prepared deliciously by the Chef was just another treat. The massage overlooking The Gulf of Nicoya was extremely relaxing and I am a Pickleball addict and they even had a court and paddles! The Staff was very personable and professional and no doubt could provide anything needed to make your stay something special. Having spent so much time in Costa Rica, I have visited most of the tourist destinations such as: Tabacon Hots Springs, Extreme Zip-line, volcanoes, Butterfly farms, Jungle tours and every Beach from Panama to El Salvador so I was happy to just spend time right there at El Castille. For me, there was plenty to keep me occupied and I had no desire to leave the property! It really was an easy destination to get to and I think it will be a great place for me to enjoy a girls getaway next time. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it. Suzy"

  • Possibily the best located house in Malpais

    "Our family of 5 very much enjoyed our short stay at Casa Celeste: and I agree with the other reviewers. Vicente was welcoming and yet reclusive, the house was rustic, clean and comfortable. The location was the best we say along the shore of Malpais. The owners were responsive and it was easy to book with them. Everything was comfortable and nice. The only thing I missed was a microwave and we got over that quickly. Cold milk with your coffee isn't the end of the world....We had a big truck which was a bit difficult to park in Santa Teresa so I recommend a smaller 4 wheel drive or rent an atv to drive to the store. Visit the tico restaurant Caracoles 2 houses up - wonderful food and very nice hosts.The bakery was excellent, but we preferred to eat breakfast and drink our coffee at the best view in town - Casa Celeste. Visit secret beach at low tide so you can snorkel, but bring your shoes at it's very rocky, but lovely. Make sure you visit Playa Hermosa which I believe is one of the loveliest and safest beaches to swim at in CR. Enjoy!"

  • Fantastic spot!

    "We recently got home from a trip to Costa Rica, and the Casa de Amigos was by far our favorite place to have stayed. I highly recommend it. The house itself is in a nice location - it's right near Santa Elena, which is a jumping off point for all sorts of activities and adventures. There are also loads of restaurants and a decent super there. The house is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The caretakers are doing a great job - Ken and co., you are very fortunate to have Guillermo and Evelyn for friends and employees. Everything was clean and well stocked. The house was spacious for our family of 6 (we're two adults and four smallish kids). Our kids loved that the caretakers have a little dog. I loved the delicious bakery smells coming from their home - and the cake sample that Evelyn brought over! The kitchen was well appointed and easy to cook in, which for our family saved a lot of money. The cloud forest is amazing - don't pass up an opportunity to hike here! We enjoyed the hanging bridges tour, and the ziplines were definitely a highlight. Heading into the trip, I didn't think we'd get to zip as our girls are all smallish (between 40 and 60 lbs), but Evelyn called and found that we could indeed zip. So fun. And surprisingly un-scary, even for our 4, 6, 9 and 11 year old kids. I only wished we had more time to spend in Monteverde."
