  • Perfect location!

    "We spent a wonderful week in October at the Luxury Castle. The house is a wonderful space, and definitely not something over represented on the internet that will disappoint when you arrive. The owners promptly met us in town as we arrived in Atenas to lead us to the house. When we arrived, the owners spent a good deal of time with us ensuring we understood all the features of the house and answer any questions we had about the house, as well as offer suggestions for local dining, shopping, and provide suggestions on day trips based on our family’s desires while visiting Costa Rica. The Luxury Castle is absolutely perfect for a family visit, as the drive from the San Jose airport is reasonable after flying in (roughly 45 minutes) and beaches, rain forests, and volcanoes are all easy day trips. And for those days you just feel like staying in, the pool is beautiful, and it is a pleasure to just sit out back and admire the scenery while you relax. We saw Toucans every day while at the house, in addition to many other bird species. The owners made themselves easily available throughout our stay if we had any questions on the house or places to go in Atenas or elsewhere around Costa Rica. So whether you are wanting adventure every day, looking to spend a week just relaxing in a beautiful spot and just venturing into Atenas when the need to go out arises, or a combination of both, this is the vacation rental for you."

  • The only thing more lovely than the casita were the hosts.

    "Great location, near one national park and not too far from others and the water. Beautiful cottage, exactly as described. The hosts were truly wonderful. Can't wait to get back."

  • Magical place - best place to entertain large groups of adults and children

    "Just wanted to drop you a quick note as to the wonderful time my guests and I had at El Castillo. The place is truly amazing—much larger and more spectacular than the pictures. But it is the staff that made the trip truly magical. Annabelle, Joswey, Colon and the entire team could not have been more professional and accommodating. We had a total of 30 guest, 14 of whom were children. The house provided so much space and activities to keep the kids busy and happy. Same for the adults (my guests especially enjoyed the masseuse). The food was 1st rate and it was wonderful that the specious dining room allowed us to eat together at dinner. Colon's Thanksgiving feast was as good as grandma used to make! Also, Henry's recommendations re special activities were spot on. He arranged not only fireworks right outside our balcony, but also for a fantastic band to play in the home. Outside activities were as you would expect in Costa Rica--fishing, zip-lining, ATV driving and golfing. All transportation was arranged by the staff (including airport pickup and drop off). Every detail was flawlessly executed by Annabelle and her staff. On a scale of 1-10, several of the children rated El Castillo as a "100", a "200" and even as a "1200". I would agree that it will be extremely hard to find a better place in the world to enjoy the company of a large group I will sing the praises of El Castillo and your team to my friends and definitely want to visit again in the near future."

  • We loved Casa Blais

    "Immediately upon arrival, it was obvious this was going to be an amazing vacation. The Casa itself was amazing, then the view was even better. It was so easy to feel at home here - drinking the Costa Rican coffee on the veranda, lounging in the amazing pool and enjoying sangria in the hammock. We came here as a couple for a getaway and are already looking for dates to come back with friends. This place had everything and Andrew and Oscar took such great care of us."
