Comfortable, close to town and good value for the money

  • 4 of 5

Great experience. Would have given it a 5* but the A/C on the first level was broken and no effort was made to fix it. Luckily, the two bedrooms upstairs worked fine and kept us comfortable enough. Not much help in finding the grill; how the gate works; how to get around town. Had to ask neighbors; they were nice. You are not going to get the concierge service a hotel provides but you will get a great home away from home.

Bella proprietà, tutto come descritto

  • 4 of 5

La proprietà è molto bella. La villa è inserita in un complesso di ville con piscina condivisa e una reception che controlla chi entra e chi esce dalla proprietà. Nella villa non manca nulla. La cucina è ben attrezzata, le camere sono belle e ben arredate. Purtroppo manca l'asciugacapelli.

Il divano letto in salotto è strutturato in modo che si dorma per terra quindi diciamo che il 5 e 6 posto letto sono un po' approssimativi. Per 4 la villa è perfetta. Per qualsiasi cosa è necessario prendere la macchina però, dal momento che ristoranti e supermercati di Quepos sono un po' distanti e la strada per raggiungerli è senza marciapiede con macchine che sfrecciano e zero illuminazione notturna.

Thisi Villa is really nice and the staff is really friendly! We enjoyed our stay and we hope to return. The only thing was that the mattresses were a wee old, but the pool is a also a surprising bonus!!!

Great stay at Villa Catorce!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at Villa Catorce July 29-Aug 2, 2016, and we were very pleased with our accommodations! The villa was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals, and the air conditioners offered sweet relief from the heat and humidity. We used the downstairs patio table and hammock quite a bit, especially in the mornings, and it was really nice to have an outdoor extension of the home. Also, the upstairs patio was a great place to sit and have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and people watch. The pool was never crowded, and we even used the bbq grill one evening. Though we could always spot a neighbor or two around, the community was very peaceful and quiet.

The staff was very helpful. I wish I could remember the guy's name who cleaned the pool every morning, but he was especially helpful when I needed to use the washing machine (turns out that I could've unlocked the laundry room myself with my villa key, making it even more convenient before hours).

I already miss it there, and I can't wait to go back!

Only a few, minor cons (not deal breakers): We wished there would've been more lighting at the pool. There are lights around, but I think more or brighter lights would've made night lounging and swimming a bit more comfortable. The beds were a bit firm for me. Low, small couch wasn't ideal for tv/movie watching with the group.

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!
