Nancy and Dan Zintsmaster, an American couple from Key West, Florida, and the property managers of the Majestic, found El Castillo out of a desire to explore the areas off of the beaten track. “Upon arriving in El Castillo almost 10 years ago, and seeing the majestic Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal, we fell in love with this area. After traveling all over Costa Rica looking for a place to retire, we arrived here and immediately knew that this was it...our special spot on the planet! The people were gracious and kind and always very helpful and accomodating. There are around 240 people in El Castillo and the other tiny villages that make up this area we call home. With only a dozen or so Americans we have been able to fully immerse ourselves into the 'tico' culture. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know and love our neighbors who welcomed us into their village and their lives. This is a place we are proud to call home.”

Nancy and Dan Zintsmaster /Contact us for availability purchased this villa in 2003

Being located on the Lake with a perfect view of the Majestic Volcano is spectacular. It is breathtaking and a very peaceful place!

This home is the best of both worlds. It is comfortable and elegant and it is in the middle of the rainforest! I love being away from it all, but still having the conveniences of wifi internet, satellite t.v., local restaurants, grocery stores and a gorgeous view as well. It is the perfect getaway!

This is a great location for all the activities in the area; most of them seem to be along the long dirt road to this B&B. We arrived on a sunny day & found out from others after leaving the area (a day earlier than planned due to torrential rain) that we were really lucky to have seen the volcano. We were the only guests and never did meet Nancy but were well taken care of.

The Majestic Lodge is truly a hidden Gem! We could not believe our eyes as we drove along the Lake road to this special village. El Castillo is everything you dream of when thinking of vacationing in Costa Rica. Off the beaten path is what makes it so special. People still using horses for transportation and the convenience of restaurants, grocery stores, excursions and the icing on the cake, the Majestic Lodge!! Gorgeously decorated with exotic wood and high end antiques and a view that will take your breath away! The staff is fantastic, as we never wanted for anything. Nancy and her husband Z, the property managers, are beautiful people and a wealth of knowledge about the area. Nancy planned our vacation for us from beginning to end and it was perfect. She worked extremely hard to make our vacation a once in a lifetime experience, and that it was! Her staff was amazing as well. They are kind and gracious and made us feel right at home. We could not have asked for more, and I would advise anyone going to this area to stay at the Majestic Lodge. They even have private homes you can rent on the top of the mountain above the Majestic. They call it Pie in the Sky for breathtaking views and gorgeous homes! Thanks Nancy and the Majestic Staff for all you did to make this a perfect vacation for our family!!

We were warmly welcomed at the Majestic Lodge! Nancy, Z and Brian TRULY took great care of us!! The home is immaculate. The hot tub is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Nancy recommended Sky Trek for hiking and zip lining and booked it for us. She gave us many recommendations and we seriously felt like we were staying with family. The service Nancy provides is priceless. This is a hidden gem where everyone knows each other and take care of each other. We experienced it firsthand. We decided to rent a kayak late in the day just for a couple of hours. We got so turned around on the lake (lost). We still can't believe what happened to us. But, Nancy really cared and did everything in her power to search for us even getting the only guy around with a boat to go out searching for us. It truly made us feel at home to know how many people cared what had happened to us. We will never forget the love that was shown to us and would not hesitate to return! It is WELL worth it! Thank you so much for everything!

Amazing Vacation Home

My two daughters and I stayed here while we were visiting & volunteering at Hogarcito in La Fortuna. The Majestic is a bit removed from the town, but well worth the trip. We fell in love with El Castillo, Lake Arenal & the volcano, & especially with Nancy and the super sweet, friendly, and competent staff at The Majestic. Nancy was an amazing hostess - very helpful with scheduling outings and advice about where to eat and things to do in the area. The home is beautiful and we loved the pool and the Jacuzzi. We also fell in love with the pets on site - Nube, the cat, and Nancy's dog - who was often around the place.

As far as activities go, after volunteering at Hogarcito, we did the zip lines, went white water rafting, visited Rancho Margot - a self sustainable ranch, went to the natural hot springs, & took many amazing walks through the area. We also visited the animal sanctuary about an hour south of La Fortuna - El Proyecto Asis - where we got to hold baby Capuchin monkeys - and had a few shopping sprees in La Fortuna. If I ever return to the Arenal area, I will certainly give Nancy a call!
