This Neo-style Castle is a 6-bedroom luxury villa in Manuel Antonio and is an experience all by itself. Built facing the world famous and legendary views of Manuel Antonio National Park. Casa Castillo is built on several levels with fine finishes and high quality wood, tile, wrought iron and imported stone, this vacation fortress, offers ample room for up to 14 guests. On the entry level floor there are 2 bedrooms with Queen size beds in each and 2 bathrooms.

One level down is the new Master suite with a private bathroom and private access to the main pool

Ascending the winding stair case you will enter the large common area, with an expansive living room that flows into an ‘indoor patio’ with more seating and a splash pool – these lounging areas are in front of a large and very well equipped kitchen that is suitable for feeding a King and his court along with a dinning room table fit to seat 8 guests.

This level also includes two inviting suites with king size beds, high ceilings, bathrooms, and stunning views of Cathedral Point – Manuel Antonios most recognizable geographic feature.

The upper level, consists of an enormous open terrace, suitable for hosting, outdoor dining, weddings, reading, or admiring the surrounding wildlife from a breathtaking vantage point.

This terrace borders another master suite that is accessed by a small cat-walk provides very stately quarters for the head of this domain. Please remember that Casa Castillo was designed and created by an international musician and artist and reflects an eclectic but flowing style, inspired by a lifetime of world travel and alternative thought. Features such as stained glass mosaics, interesting statuary, and other world art classify this villa as being truly unique.

The location of this luxury villa is in one of the most desirable residential sub-zones of Manuel Antonio and is very close to restaurants, bars, cafes, an art gallery, casino, and many other attractive local points of interest. To enjoy being the King or Queen of your own domain please check into Casa Castillo or one of our other luxury villas we have here at Villascrcom Costa Rica.

For Whale Watchers

The best time to go whale watching in Costa Rica is August to December. This is due to the migration patterns of the humpback whales, of which both Northern and Southern hemisphere humpbacks pass through Costa Rica. The humpback whales are the prized jewel for whale watching in Costa Rica.

Thank you

About Alexander Rivera

House Manager

Alexander Rivera

I have lived in the area for 12 years now and i have worked for Vacation Villas for the past 8 Years

I am US born and raised, but my mother and father are both Costa Rican so I have the best of Both worlds and I am looking forward to helping you have a smooth and stress free vacation

Why Alexander Rivera chose Manuel Antonio

The property is perfect for large families and people who like to party or even small weddings

its a private home set in the jungle but with easy access to civilization just a 15 minute walk to the main road or a 2 minute drive

What makes this castle unique

The house is very roomy lots of space for everyone and large areas for people to congregate ...also due to all the space it also gives privacy to those who want to read a book in peace away from the group ... its a very cool house and like a castle it has its shady areas which to me is appealing

On a personal level i like it alot

Sometimes I go with my family, 8 adults and 9 grandchildren, and we make a Castillo Day ....some of the grandkids play video games on large screen tv in the living area

grandbabys and mothers hang in the splash pool so the kids with delicate skin dont burn in the outdoor sun

and the roughfer part of my family plays in the outdoor lappool and sip beers and soda

waiting for me to call them in to eat the fall off the bone BBQed spare ribbs and home made potatoe Salad which i make

But generaly speaking i am here to help you in any way at any time, from the moment you step off the plane ... I am your Vacation Guru and Im looking forward to showing you the best of what Costa Rica is willing to offer you

Casa Castillo, Tropical 6 bdr Ocean View Castle

It was great

  • 5 of 5

Casa Castillo was absolutely beautiful! Spacious, all the amenities to make our trip absolutely perfect.The balcony's, the views, the pools, everything was well maintained, clean and perfect. Bedrooms and living spaces were great. Great kitchen with everything you need to prepare a great meal or have a chef come in and prepare it for you! We had Chef Glenda come in one night, she was awesome!! Her daughter Tiffany assisted and helped make the night memorable! Our group was made up of 8 adults and 1 toddler. The home is not child proof but we were able to make it safe for Baby Otto. He had an awesome time too! Check out Otto sees the world blog! The location was great, near the beaches, near Manuel Antonio, some great restaurants at the corner of the street. Amazing places to view the sunset over the Pacific. We had Monkeys come visit and many birds. The pictures do a good job of showing the place off, but being there is the real treat! Alex our host was incredibly helpful, from helping plan our trip to Costa Rica/Manuel Antonio, to setting up excursions, recommmending restaurants, and even having his lovely wife baby sit Otto! I can't say enough about the home, our host or Costa Rica! If Costa Rica is not on your list of places to visit, you need to consider adding it! Great time! Thanks Alex!

Beautiful view, excellent space to accommodate a large crowd. Monkeys and beautiful nature surrounds

  • 3 of 5

3.5 stars. The space was ideally located not far from breathtaking beaches and the entrance of the State Park. The house was spacious and accommodated a very large group of our families, and comfortably sleeps more than 12 guests. The nature and beauty of the jungle surrounds the house and the howler monkeys loud roar woke us up the first couple of mornings until we got used to them. My only complaint was the steep hill to the house could only be accessed by a 4X4 vehicle due to the steep decline/incline the final 50 yards or so, and therefore our group had to walk that steep incline every morning (not for the faint of heart or elderly). There was also a mix up with our parking spot at the top of this hill, but that was more a complaint towards our neighbours. Alex was very helpful with advice and booking of activities, and quite friendly and accommodating. The maid service was an added touch, with clean laundry folded on our nightstand at the end of the day! Very nice. I'd recommend staying.
