  • 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."

  • Authentic; Purposeful; Delightful....Perfect!

    "We spent 9 nights at the farmhouse and it couldn't have been a better way to see Costa Rica. We had an authentic experience with the community....learning traditional dance, experiencing the farmers market; eating traditional food, hiking and swimming on the property...as well as easy access to Monte Verde and all it has to offer. Cloud forest; coffee and sugar plantation with chocolate processing; bat jungle; zip line; hanging bridges and incredible food served with a heaping helping of welcoming hospitality wherever you go! And Veronica helped a great deal by making recommendations and reservations for us in Monte Verde. It was also important to us to be supporting the great cause of the Sustainability Center. "Pura Vida" is the Costa Rican motto which means "Pure life". Indeed it is! We would go back there in a heartbeat!"

  • Marvelous experience

    "Grace and Ivan were excellent hosts, right from the beginning when they met us at the airport. It was a long day of travelling, and they ensured we started our vacation without a hitch. We accompanied them out for dinner our first night, which was also a great experience, and we revisited that particular restaurant again. The casita was very comfortable, we loved dining on the front patio. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make our meals. I loved the great drinking water, and the ice machine. The yard was very well maintained, and the amazing tree in front of the casita provided us with many enjoyable hours of bird watching. The location was great for many day trips, and there were lots of things we got to see thanks to the great tips we received from our hosts. The pool was also wonderful. I loved having the dogs around, they are so well behaved, and for anyone who didn't want to interact with the dogs, there is lots of fencing. I, however, found it very comforting to have them around, and to be greeted each day with wagging tails. I was quite attached by the time we left!! All in all, it was one of our best holidays, Grace and Ivan made us feel very welcome, they went above and beyond to ensure that our vacation was wonderful, and I highly recommend their casita!!"
