“Gorgeous beach front home”
Reviewed 5 days ago for a stay in July 2018

This rental surpassed all my expectations. The location could not have been better with private access to the beach, beautiful beach walks, amazing variety of local food options and lots of privacy. The house itself was stunning. Super clean, gorgeous ocean views from every room, all the amenities we needed and lovely decor. Kelly was so easy to work with. She made everything easy and straightforward. My typical day included a beach walk, shell collecting, floating in tidepools, ocean swim, pool dip, kayak through estuary and a delicious dinner. Our meals were all within a 10-15 minute drive and were all marvelous. I cant wait to stay here again. As we were packing to go i found myself thinking that i could easily never leave.

“Absolutely Breathtaking!!”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in July 2018

Omg! Words cannot explain how breathtaking this rental is!! It is an AMAZING price for the size and location of the house. I loved the facts that there was reliable WiFi everywhere in the house, amazing massages available from the caretaker, and beach views right from one of your 5 (yeah that’s right, FIVE) bedrooms. Waking up to the Costa Rica sunrise is incredible!! Not only is the house amazing, but don’t get me started on the location!! Holy cow! The restaurants around are AMAZING! The dirt roads through the forest are incredibly beautiful and unique. And the locals are SO nice. I especially loved the caretaker who you don’t even see unless you want a massage or to do some yoga. I really hope you pick this spot at your rental, because anywhere else would be a huge mistake!

“Surpassed Expectations!”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

It was our first time in Costa Rica and the experience was amazing. Castillo de Coral in Playa Junquillal was spectacular! The house was a vacation by itself. The 5 bedrooms suites were beautiful, private, and very comfortable, 4 with ocean front views! The infinity pool was a hit morning, noon and night, even enjoyed a few meals served at the water bar, not to mention the cocktails! The kitchen was totally stocked with all your needs, the bathrooms were grand, and the relaxing atmosphere was the icing on this cake.
The beach is beautiful and very private. The sunsets were beautiful and we had the best views from the second and third story balconies.
The owners have thought of everything. To all the dishes and utensils in the kitchens, the fluffy towels, a BBQ on the balcony, to movies to watch and games to play. I especially appreciated the guest book with many great idea's and tips on where to go and activities to do around the Playa Junquillal area.
We will be returning to Castillo de Coral, my only hesitation in writing my review, is that when it's time for my to book my next trip to Costa Rica, Castillo de Coral will be booked solid!

“Secluded Oceanfront Mansion Paradise!”
Reviewed December 7, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

It's hard to fight over the bedrooms when they are ALL spectacular!:) Enormous master suites with huge private bathrooms. Clearly no expense was spared constructing this beautiful property with floor to ceiling windows looking out on the private ocean frontage. The black sand beach sparkles in the sun and you will almost never see footprints. Renting this home with a fun group of women from the 1st to the 9th of November was the best decision I ever made! The beach is very private; when we walked it, no matter what time of day, you rarely saw anyone. The few people we did meet on the beach were other vacationers from the states or Canada that owned homes nearby. The area was very secluded, safe and NOT "touristy". We drove a short 30 minutes to Tamarindo where you could be part of the tourist crowd if you like. Lots of shops and restaurants. Charming. Don't miss the farmer's market on Saturday's there where you can find Omar, a gifted reflexology healer that helped several ladies in our group rid themselves of back and joint pain. He is a miracle worker in a very humble persona. We had lunch in the restaurant on the beach next to the market that Saturday and it was a hidden gem! 5 star dining at very affordable prices. Try the ceviche and smoked octopus. Outstanding! When you dine there or at Lolas, another amazing restaurant on the beach, make sure to notice the difference in beach traffic from the secluded mansion you will be renting. At the farmer's market we picked up loads of locally grown fruits and vegetables (even some delicious smoked meats) and enjoyed using the gourmet kitchen for cooking and family style meals. The house was well-equipped with high quality housewares. A well appointed kitchen both upstairs and down with everything you need and more. High ceilings, a balcony deck for upstairs bedrooms & a pool with bar off the main level deck. We all slept like babies with air conditioning allowing each room to choose their own setting and the beds were top notch! Very high quality mattresses and linens. Truly Kelly is a host with a passion for quality and service. Everything we needed was there along with a binder giving you tons of information on the area and suggestions for what to do. The in-house concierge is a phenomenal masseuse. She encourages instruction on the type of massage you want and intuitively tunes in to your needs. It was an otherworldly experience that I would like very much to revisit. It wasn't difficult to get around in the rental car and we found all of the locations we were looking for relatively easy. All the locals know where Kelly's house is which makes it easy to stop and ask for directions if need be. Once you get there it is super easy to find your way back from outings. Lots to do and see. It is hard to even want to leave the property since it offers so much. I wouldn't mind going back and just hanging out there for a week or well... forever! :) If you want to relax and visit the country that was recently found to be the happiest population on earth by National Geographic; this property is the way to go. It was an amazing vacation that I will never forget. Get the group together and head for Costa Rica! It's a smart choice and this house is a screaming deal for what you get! Pura Vida! :)
