Perfect setting to enjoy Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fantastic! We stayed there with our 3 kids (ages 13, 10, and 8) and everybody loved it. Tino (the owner) helped us set up fishing, horseback riding, and zip lining while we were there. He had great recommendations for restaurants and beaches and really made sure we always had what we needed. Despite all the fun stuff to do in the area, the kids never wanted to leave the villa! You really feel immersed in the jungle and outdoors with the way that the villa is set up. Can't wait to go back!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Not only is Villa Katino as stunning as it looks in the photos, it is an amazing experience. The view is unforgettable and the sunsets are two hour long occasions to be enjoyed while having cocktails on the comfortable chairs or lounging in the pool. All the privacy you want. The villa is very serene and safe feeling. My favorite part of the experience was the total immersion into the beauty and sounds of the jungle surrounding. Howler monkeys, Capuchins, and all the beautiful bird sounds...It was just so great listening and watching and enjoying the experience. The place is mostly open air and everything is impeccable. Tino was fantastic. He made sure that all of our needs were met. If you want a truly unique experience away from all of the bustle of Playa Carmen I cannot recommend this enough!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Villa Katino has everything you want in a vacation home: breathtaking views, an infinity pool, open kitchen, outside lounge area, relaxing chairs, comfortable beds, monkeys, birds, iguanas, and more. The descriptions and photos are 100% accurate in regard to the facilities and layout, in addition, the property was left spotless. Tino was more than accommodating. Any activities, bars, or restaurants in the area he recommends I highly suggest you try out. Although my girlfriend and I were only there for a couple nights I highly recommend Villa Katino to anybody traveling near the Mal Pais/Playa Hermosa area. (Definitely purchase an atv or truck with four wheel drive)

Worth every penny.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Katino is truly a gem! It's location up on the hill is amazing and our jaws literally hit the floor when we arrived. The ride up is indeed steep/bumpy and would do best with a 4x4 or ATV, but the privacy and view are SO worth it.

Tino, not to mention, is an excellent host and very accommodating. He picked us up from our previous lodge so all of our bags could make it up the hill and he even arranged us an ATV rental in town when his was out of service and let us take it over the Montezuma for a few days (and even had a friend come pick it up so we didn't have to drive it back over!) We were so amazed at the generosity of the people involved with Villa Katino, we would come back for that alone.

The rooms are spacious, clean, and the pool is fantastic. Even on the crummier days weather wise, it was amazing to sit on the couch and watch the lightening storms.

Don't think twice, just book it.

Fabulous property with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you could want in a rental property - amenities, comfort, privacy, and last but not least, an absolutely stunning view.

Villa Katino is two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is located atop a hill that overlooks the beaches of Mal Pais and St. Teresa. Although the drive up it steep (4-wheel drive required), the view and the privacy makes it all worthwhile. There is a restaurant at the bottom of the hill (Mary's) which we ate at multiple times on the trip.

We loved making breakfast and having our coffee on the patio. It was nice having our own pool and hot tub, and we even viewed a family of monkeys right outside our door.

The property owner - Tino - is a very gracious and obliging host. He helped us set up surf lessons, massages at the property, a fishing expedition, and a ziplining tour. It was an easy drive from the property to those activities, as well as to bars/restaurants and grocery stores. Tino even met us at the grocery when we arrived in town to make sure we were able to get everything we needed for our stay.

I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. It was clean and well-maintained. We count our stay here as one of our favorite trips ever. Do yourself a favor and book your stay now.

Nie besser gefaulenzt! :)

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unsere letzten 2 Wochen Costa Rica in der Villa Katino verbracht,

besser haben wir zuvor noch nicht gewohnt.

Das Haus liegt wunderschön, absolut privat, der Ausblick ist tatsächlich sagenhaft, der Pool ist herrlich-es gibt eigentlich kaum großartig Gründe sich überhaupt noch mal nach unten zu bewegen.

Wer nach absoluter Entspannung sucht ist hier genau richtig, man kann den ganzen Tag auf diversen Sitz und Liegelandschaften im Schatten verbringen, ab und zu in den Pool hüpfen und einfach die Ruhe genießen.

Die Küche hat alles was man braucht um sich selbst zu versorgen, großer Kühlschrank/Gefrierfach, Gasherd, ein irrer Gasgrill,Microwelle und alle nötigen Utensilien nebst Saftmixer für Lecker Smoothies/Eisshakes, die Betten sind superbequem, im Hauptschlafzimmer hat man durch große Balkontüren den gleichen Wahnsinns Ausblick -so aufzuwachen hat schon was und wir vermissen es jetzt schon schmerzlich! Alles ist sehr schön gestaltet und eingerichtet, auf unnötigen Schnickschnack wurde verzichtet, sehr angenehm!

An Tieren gab es hier mehr zu sehen als auf diversen Touren durch alle möglichen Parks-und vor allem viiiel näher dran!

Tino ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber der sich um alles kümmert und über alles Bescheid weiß soweit man dies in Anspruch nehmen möchte, ansonsten hat man totale Ruhe, was uns immer sehr wichtig ist.

Wir wollen auf jeden Fall gerne einmal wiederkommen und legen Villa Katino jedem ans Herz der dringend mal eine Auszeit braucht!
