We spent a wonderful week in October at the Luxury Castle. The house is a wonderful space, and definitely not something over represented on the internet that will disappoint when you arrive. The owners promptly met us in town as we arrived in Atenas to lead us to the house. When we arrived, the owners spent a good deal of time with us ensuring we understood all the features of the house and answer any questions we had about the house, as well as offer suggestions for local dining, shopping, and provide suggestions on day trips based on our family’s desires while visiting Costa Rica. The Luxury Castle is absolutely perfect for a family visit, as the drive from the San Jose airport is reasonable after flying in (roughly 45 minutes) and beaches, rain forests, and volcanoes are all easy day trips. And for those days you just feel like staying in, the pool is beautiful, and it is a pleasure to just sit out back and admire the scenery while you relax. We saw Toucans every day while at the house, in addition to many other bird species. The owners made themselves easily available throughout our stay if we had any questions on the house or places to go in Atenas or elsewhere around Costa Rica. So whether you are wanting adventure every day, looking to spend a week just relaxing in a beautiful spot and just venturing into Atenas when the need to go out arises, or a combination of both, this is the vacation rental for you.
