Let me begin by saying the only reason I gave 4 stars (I wouldve given 4.5 if it was an option) instead of 5 is because of the pillows. I like fat, fluffy bed pillows and because these were on the flatter side, I had a few sleep deprived nights. So if you prefer to be propped up in bed, bring your own pillows. Otherwise, I think this must be the best lodging in all...

Management response:

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us & may return in the future- Castara is addictive..but we do wish that you had mentioned the problem with the pillows to us at the time-as we have a whole store of them & could have easily swapped or given you extra ones! Some guests prefer different types &...

A great vacation can only happen if the location, accommodation and people are great too. Although I had not spoken or met Yvonne or Chris the information and helpfulness was fantastic, especially when my airline decided to change the date of my flight. I know when I first thought about rental, I thought "what if this" and "what if that" well please rest assured you have found the right village and certainly reading the reviews...

Management response:

So glad that you really enjoyed your holiday & stay with us. Only sorry that we were not able to be there to meet you -maybe next time? Chris & Yvonne

We were graced to have found the owners and our pad. There were times in our stay when, even though we are constant explorers, that we did not want to leave the front deck. Birds and lizards all over the place....as well as lovely owners and other guests. This is truly one of the places we have visited that feels as though there is a convergence of great spirit. Thank you for "finding" us.

Management response:

It was really lovely to have you both stay....hope to see you both in the future Chris & Yvonne
