Great location, wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at Villa Catorce for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! Quepos is only 10min from all the activities we wanted to do in Manuel Antonio and gorgeous beaches!

The villa itself was located in a secure, gated complex and was equipped with 2 very comfortable beds as well as a surprisingly comfortable pull out in the living room! The air conditioning worked well and was such a relief in the heat!

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and there was a gas BBQ available outside as well.

The pool was a favourite for the kids and they spent many hours enjoying it.

Mario was extremely helpful from the booking phase and all the way through. Thank you Mario for sharing your wonderful property with us. We would highly recommend this villa to others, and look forward to returning should we find ourselves in the area again!

Mario is a great host and was incredible in response when needed! AC was huge for us and the pool vibe was awesome. Perfect place for our family of 6. If you want to hang out in Manuel Antonio for the week, look no further!

Comfortable and convenient rental in Quepos

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two parents, two teens) rented this property for a week during our recent visit to Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It was a great fit for our needs. My daughter slept on the futon couch in the family room, my son had a bedroom and we took the second bedroom. It was very helpful to have two full bathrooms, especially when we were all anxious to shower after a day at the beach. The house looks just like the photos...a beautiful modern kitchen with plenty of appliances and pots and pans, a nice pool, and a patio with a hammock. We didn't cook much--just breakfast fixings and snacks. My daughter especially enjoyed the pool in the late afternoon. There were plenty of towels. I didn't love the bed linens; they were clean, but a bit scratchy and the pillows were lumpy. The air conditioning units were powerful and needed due to the heat and humidity. There is an on-site free washer and dryer, but you need to make a reservation to use it. We planned ahead and grabbed a time slot for the last night of our trip. In terms of location, you are just up the hill from the town of Quepos, where you will find a grocery store, bank, and so many restaurants. We liked El Gran Escape, Soda Come Bien, and the "Fisherman Restaurant" called Juiberths (the last is actually further up the hill, only about 1/2 mile from Hacienda Pacificia. The front desk staff is helpful. We rented a car, which gave us great mobility, but taxis are plentiful and cheap. I would not recommend walking along the road to town....there's not much of a shoulder and people drive fast. We were about 15 minutes from Manuel Antonio, and we enjoyed the day we spent there spotting monkeys and playing in the ocean. Another restaurant (this one on the way to Manuel Antonio): El Wagon, for pizza and salads. In terms of activities, we did Canopy Safari (very fun and safe), Rainmaker Park (great suspension bridges and waterfalls with swimming holes) and two day trips down to Playa Dominical. We had a wonderful, active week and this rental was perfect for our needs.

Owner's Response: To maximize comfort, we have purchased new soft pillows and new linens for the beds, and have discarded the uncomfortable pillows and linens. The main road from Villa Catorce to Quepos has been recently expanded with a wide sidewalk for pedestrians, although it is still more convenience to rent a car and drive to your various travel destinations.

Nancy, John & family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house (beautiful, clean and functional), the site (great pool, safe, close to downtown Quepos and Manuel Antonio park) and the employees on the site who were extremely friendly and helpful.

We are a family of five and the house met all our needs. The 2 full bathrooms are definitely a plus.

If you're looking for lodging in Quepos, look no further.
