UNIQUE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Catalina only for a few days with our family. Guess what? We really were dissapointed we had to leave so early! In fact we have very little to add to the previous reviews... the house is gorguous. Ata first sight, when you get there you have a feeling of gertting into a fully equipped vintage (in th egood sense of this word!) villa. The villa is great, the conciereges are so nice and helpful, but being honest, nothing compared to the scenic view from the terrace and infinity pool. This was a unique experience!!
Last but not least, the Manager, Hans, was always at our service, what ever needed. In a nutshell: worth every penny, and honestly to come back here I would be prepared to pay even a bit more :-)

INCREDIBLE HOME WITH GORGEOUS PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
My family (parents and 4 older teens) had a wonderful experience in Costa Rica and our stay at Casa Catalina made it that much more special for our vacation. The home was beautiful!!! The rooms were very clean and spacious. The pool area was where we spent most of our time each morning and evening. The panoramic ocean views from the infinity was breathtaking. With the large kitchen and all it's cookware, we ate in most nights and the Auto Mercado down the street had great food and wine selections. Miguel (the groundskeeper) always had a smile on his face when he showed up to say hello and to see if we needed anything. Mayella (his wife) was very quiet, but kept the house clean and cooked us a wonderful breakfast on our first day. Lacey (the dog) was a very nice touch, we loved having her around us. She's a great companion and doesn't ask for much. The town and beach are just down the steep hill, it was easy to walk down to, saw monkeys on our way downhill, but took a bit of an effort to walk back up. With that said, we rented a 4 WD in town, which was handy to get us around town and to the grocery store. I hired a driver to take us to and from the Liberia Airport (more on this later) and to the Zip Line Tour, which I recommend if you are going up into the mountains for this tour. The roads are rocky and treacherous and we would have been lost if driving on our own. The catamaran sunset sailing trip was well worth it. Hans (the management company) was there to greet us when we arrived and to make sure we were comfortable and arrived at the end of our trip to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He was a miracle worker really!!!! Our one hiccup, and a serious one.....the driver I hired, who was taking us back to the airport didn't show up (he thought we were departing the next day????), we got very worried as precious time was passing by, so we called Hans for HELP, who within 15 minutes had a driver at the house to take us to the airport. Problem solved!!! I can't say enough goodness about this home AND the staff, which made for a perfect family vacation!! You won't be disappointed.

STUNNING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Catalina was perfect! Magnificent views can be seen from every room.

My family & I are very well traveled and typically stay in 5-star resorts.
This property represents tremendous value.
The view from the patio and infinity pool are not to be believed...fabulous!
After a day out at the beaches we would come "home" and cool off by the pool.

High ceilings, terra cotta floors and beautiful furnishings make this home so complete.
Every amenity was there for us; kitchen was very well equipped, laundry room easily accessible off the kitchen, loads of good towels, beautifully furnished...etc.

Caretaker Miguel is awesome! Super friendly and yet very professional. He took very good care of us.
My family & I are big animal lovers and when we travel we miss our pets. Lacy, the owners dog, filled in that gap for us. She is a love! My son & daughter even took Lacy to the beach one day.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this home. We loved it :)
Pura Vida!

EVERY ROOM WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This is a house with a gorgeous view! The infinity pool is spectacular and a fantastic view to wake up to in the morning. The pool is cool as it is shaded most of the day but after a day of ATV’s, Zip Line, Hiking it is a refreshing place to begin or end the day! Miguel, Mirella, and Lacey are great. If you engage Miguel with a simple Buenos Dias he will try to communicate trust me my Spanish is very poor but I am willing to listen and try to understand and enjoyed our conversations-- what better way to share a cerveza and learn Spanish. Miguel is a very happy person who enjoys life he is helpful and friendly.
Sitting on the deck the view is great expect a nice breeze and you will hear howler monkeys, we saw some across from the property on the front side of the house but heard them almost every night.
If you do not like to walk up steep hills or have any walking issues or balance issues get a car and drive the road is very rough so go with a 4X4 but also know not a good idea to drive down and drink a beer there are few sidewalks so there is a lot of pedestrian traffic along with very narrow streets makes it a defensive driving challenge. I drove to Congo Trail and Liberia and the signage was fine might have to turn around once or twice but that would be true of anyplace you are not familiar with the surroundings.
Places I tried that were very good were Langosta Beach Club Dinner and Service was excellent, Coconuts also very good food we were there for New Years Eve but service was only good since they were slammed.

BTW fly into Liberia or small plane directly into Tamarindo the San Jose drive is a long one and all 2 lane roads if you do it plan on 5 hours in a car. I recommend a tour company to drive you Tamarindo Shuttle was great for us.

BEST TRIP WITH AMAZING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
We booked our trip with another couple and had the time of our life! The house is absolutely gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. Miguel, Mayella and Layce were all an absolute treat to have onsite with us. Everything was kept in tip-top shape and we were well-cared for by them. The house is located on a hill, you can walk up and down the hill and it is maybe a 10 min walk, but it puts you right into town and at the beach. I felt that it was well worth the hill to have such stunning views and privacy. I recommend this house and I am excited to go back!

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
Came for a week in August. Although it is the rainy season, the weather was outstanding. Stayed at Casa Catalina - 2 adults and 3 adult children. The villa is well-kept, and appropriately furnished. Pool is great. Views are stunning. Miguel, the security guard/poolboy/gardener is very pleasant and responsible. No complaints whatsoever! Would definitely stay here again and I recommend Casa Catalina to anyone looking for a private, hassle-free vacation. 2 minutes drive to town, though the road up to the villa is not great, with a 4-wheel drive, it's a bit of off-road fun. Monkeys and iguanas are not uncommon and add to the experience of the location. Sitting by the pool watching the vultures soar around and the surf breaking below never gets boring.
Just read the other reviews - it's all good!
