Guestbook comments from the manager

It took no time for my family to settle into this beautiful place. The views were spectacular, the birds were singing and the monkeys were howling. We immediately know we were going to experience an authentic Tican vacation. The house was well decorated and included a big leather sectional that my family could sink into at the end of our days. Every room had an amazing view! Beds were cozy, kitchen was well stocked and the outside decks were fantastic. We will defiantly return to this place!

Villa is beautiful! Ocean view is breathtaking! Bedrooms are large and comfortable, plenty of towels available. Short walk from 2 best beaches of Costa Rica. The area is very safe, and property owners were very helpful. We got excellent customer service.

The Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Costa Rica and we had a trip of a lifetime! The villa was so nice, spacious and breathtaking views! Every morning we woke up to the sounds of howler monkeys and birds, made breakfast and enjoyed it out on the porch over looking the ocean. Nothing is more spectacular and peaceful!

The villa is so close to several amazing beaches- it was hard to choose which beach to go to for the day!! We met up with Walter Marchani to do a morning of SUP (stand up paddle boarding) and snorkeling. He brought the boards/paddles and the snorkels and showed us a great time!

The villa is also close to several great restaurants- The Beach House, Coco Loco and The Shack, to name a few. It was easy to get food from local food markets if you wanted to cook in. The kitchen is stocked with everything you can imagine + a grill.

Can't wait to go back!!!

An Slice of Coastal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at this wonderful spacious villa on the Gunacaste coast. It was very comfortable and secure. Waking up to the spectacular views and the sound of the local wildlife was simply paradise. Our three older teenagers loved having their own space and hanging out at the infinity pool. The location was ideal for exploring the many beaches along the coast with easy access to a variety of restaurants and local stores. This was our first time to Costa Rica and we loved it!

VERY NICE PROPERTY

  • 4 of 5

PROPERTY WELL MAINTAINED AND NICELY FURNISHED.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF BEACH AND BAY FROM ALL ROOMS. LOVELY DECK WITH GAS BARBQ - NO LIGHTER TO LIGHT IT THOUGH

POOL WAS CLEAN AND REFRESHING AND ALTHOUGH ON SMALL SIDE WAS ADEQUATE.PROPERTY WAS VERY QUIET AND PEACEFUL PLACE - BUT SOME ISSUES WITH BARKING DOGS AND ROOSTERS AT NIGHT AND WEE HOURS OF MORNING THAT IS WHY I GAVE IT A 4/5 .

LOCATION WAS CONVENIENT TO FOOD STORES AND OTHER BEACHES AND RESTAURANTS. RENTAL CAR IS A MUST. NOTE: BE CAREFUL WITH RENTAL CAR AGENCY AND FEES FOR INSURANCE- WE GOT TAKEN - THRIFTY RENTAL FRANCHISE.

APPARANTLY ONLY BASIC INSURANCE IS REQUIRED AND REST IS COVERED BY CREDIT CARD COMPANY - AMERICAN EXPRESS.

AREA IS GREAT FOR LOCATION TO BEACHES AND PROXIMITY TO AIRPORT.

MANAGEMENT VERY RESPONSIVE TO SMALL ISSUE WE HAD.

WE ENJOYED - COCO LOCO ON PLAYA FLAMENGO EXCELLENT FOOD ON THE BEACH.

WE KAYAKED WITH WALTER MORENO AND ALTHOUGH OUR TOUR WAS SHORT HE WAS AN EXCELLENT GUIDE AND WE ENJOYED IT.

BEACHES ARE CLEAN AND SWIMMABLE - PLAYA CONCHAL AND PLAYA FLAMENGO WERE OUR FAVORITES WITH PLAYA PENCA IN 3RD.

WAVES COULD BE ROUGH BUT STILL ABLE TO SWIM AND ENJOY WITH SMALL CHILDREN. SAW LOTS OF JELLY FISH OFF PELICAN ISLAND AND SAW SOME WASH UP IN WATER IN CONCHAL BEACH TOO.

DID NOT SEE WILDLIFE- WENT TO THE MONKEY FARM JUST OUTSIDE TOWN AND IT WAS GREAT FOR KIDS TO SEE RESCUE ANIMALS.

Exceeded our wildest expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience with Special Places of Guanacaste and at Villa Catalina 10 made for a perfect Costa Rican getaway. For once, the rooms and views and pool were actually better than what we saw in the pictures. If you're looking for a luxurious stay down the beaten path from where most tourists stay, this place is definitely for you. Playa Prieta is a short walk (or you can drive your car straight out on the beach) and the infinity pool is the perfect place to watch the sunset and have a barbecue.

Yes, the power went out a few times, and yes, the maid showed up once with the wrong key. But come on, it's Costa Rica! The power never stayed out long enough for any of us to mind, and after a quick call to Sharon at the office, the maid's problem with the key was fixed. And Becky was especially willing to go out of her way to help us during the booking process, answering the silliest of questions for us.

Quite simply, this place was amazing.
