"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Villa Catalina. It was the perfect spot for a great family vacation. The house is amazing . It 's lay out allows space for privacy but also relaxing and comfortable communal areas. The house is very well appointed with everything you need. I have been to Costa Rica may times and this for me offered the best combination - beautiful beach with crystal blue water, lots of animal and bird life to watch, security, proximity to grocery stores and interesting restaurants and lots of adventures within easy driving. The property managers- Special Places- were excellent and responded immediately to questions . They also arranged for sunset cruises and adventure tours. I have rented a lot of houses in various places and this was by far the best experience"

"This was my family's 2nd time back to Costa Rica. We stayed one week at this fabulous condo and then stayed at the Westin hotel for the 2nd week with my 18 year old son's friends and their parents. We were sad to leave this condo after the first week of our trip! It was so comfortable and spacious--all 5 of us had plenty of room to spread out and have our own privacy. The condo was very tastefully decorated and, as the other reviewers have noted, the beds were very comfortable! There wasn't anything that the condo was lacking. Loved the 2-story aspect to the condo---it felt like a big house and allowed for us to sleep peacefully without being right on top of each other. Melissa was great and very helpful. We ended up getting a rental car which we recommend if you want to go into town to the different restaurants around. It was just easier and faster than waiting for the shuttle, which was not very reliable! We loved having access to the Beach Club---when we moved to the Westin and lost that "privilege" we realized what a valuable asset that was as part of our package! The Beach Club was about a mile walk from the condo unit and my family loved to do the walk to the beach and back every day...it felt good and healthy to be active and it was a nice walk past Howler monkeys and all sorts of birds and butterflies! Our stay in Costa Rica was extremely memorable due to the beauty and convenience of this great condo! The owners, the Nelsons, were very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions that we had! Great views, beautiful interior! We cannot wait to come back to this property!"

"5 adults and 2 young children spent a week in this condo and the accommodations were superb. We enjoyed the ocean view, the nature right outside our door, and the amenities of the resort. The owner went beyond what we expected in helping us get comfortable and was available for assistance. The free shuttles to the pool & ocean area were easy to arrange through the concierge. In all activities we did, inside & outside the resort, the service was superb. I'd highly recommend this condo & resort to anyone looking for the comfort of a home while on vacation."
