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

Great views & location.
Everything at the house was awesome. Just be sure to read the description well as the advertised price only includes (3) bedrooms.
Thank you William
Great house, great views
Beautiful well maintained house. Alex was very helpful and was available for any questions.We had a group of 15 and everyone had a great time. Monkeys came right to the patios, which was pretty amazing to see. The lady who came to clean every day was fantastic as well.
beautiful home but a bit challenging to approach it from the street.
The home was beautifully designed with great views of the ocean. Lovely pool and great sitting area. Each bedroom has own bathroom which is convenient. There could be a few more amenities in the bedroom like end tables at each side of the bed with a light for reading. The manager Alex is beyond wonderful and fully available for all needs. Excellent maid service and chef. All in all a great stay.
Amazing property, community and experience
I (single mom) brought my 3 teenage sons for a week vacation. My first vacation with my kids ... go big right?! I fell in love with Costa Rica & Manuel Antonio — and Casa Costillo is amazing. My kids “snapped” video from the beautiful adventurous STEEP drive down the street and driveway to our secluded home for the week and the “oohs and aahs” throughout our initial tour with Alex. That says a lot right?! Alex was 💯� accommodating, helpful and arranged excellent adventures for us .... and introduced us to the best Chef in the country .... you must request Glenda. The 2-3 meals we tried from recommended restaurants did not come close to the flavors and combinations Glenda and Anjelo (son) would prepare. My boys requested Her french toast every morning. They even prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for us!
And the surrounding beauty, nature, Wild life, views. I couldn’t get enough. It’s hard to describe what it’s like to be awakened in the AM by the pounding feel of monkeys in the morning running across my roof.
If any of this resonates with you, don’t hesitate and go for it. You won’t regret it ... fair warning... you will need to hike up a steep driveway for any tours. We didn’t mind at all.
It was great
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
3.5 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.
