I showed up with my friends late in the afternoon, I asked Tasia, the property manager (I hope I spelled your name right!) where a store was, and she offered to just drive us there. Later, Tasia invited us to an Italian restaurant and drove...

The Castillo is a beautiful place to stay while in Pavones, which is magical and so wondrous you will have a hard time saying goodbye, I certainly did.

Four of us shared a room on a recent surf trip to the area and found it to be clean, comfortable and a great location up on the mountain. The view from the top widow's watch was incredible.
