"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"

"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."

"My husband and I stayed at the Casa Rojo 6 out if 10 days of our honeymoon. It is the perfect size for a couple. It's located in the jungle, very private and safe. Andreas was very friendly and extremely helpful! He speaks fluent English, which was good for us, who speak no Spanish.. Solomon, the care taker, was very nice. We love that its rural and not very touristy. It's is located within a few miles from 4-5 different beaches, which are absolutely beautiful! Right outside the gate we saw a troop of howler monkeys which included a mother and baby. Charlie's in Matapalo has a good menu and drinks. In Brasalito, there's a great restaurant (can't remember the name) to the left before you enter the beach. Kevin who works there also owns a tour company. We loved the ATV tour. You are about a 10-15 min drive from a little surfing community called Playa Granda/Pirate Beach. It was one of our favorite places. You have to go to Kiki's Place, they have a great food an awesome venue."

"Incredible property - great for large families or groups. The 3 separate suites were perfect for the couples in our group. Support staff were very responsive (Mario is an great asset!). Playa Minas, Conchal easily accessible, (3-5 minutes by car) & are wonderfully secluded. Minas rarely has any people on it so it was like having a private beach. The house is simply lovely, well designed, well built, very comfortable. Close to Tamarindo (15 min. by car) which makes shopping easy. Nice to be able to run into town but then return to the relative seclusion of Brisas. Great views, great house for a party.....Pura Vida Yall!"
