  • Beautiful Home in best area of Costa Rica

    "My husband and I have traveled to Costa Rica many times over the years as it is one of our favorite destinations. We have also traveled all over Costa Rica, concentrating on beach towns and Mal Pais is our favorite. What made this last trip so memorable was the beautiful home that we stayed at during our stay. Casa El Mirador is beautiful inside and very well constructed with attention to detail apparent through out. We traveled this time with friends of ours who have 4 adult children and it was perfect. My husband and I stayed in the suite below while the family was upstairs. This beautiful little suite gave us privacy while still be together with the family. We loved the little rooftop for afternoon relaxing after a day of surfing. The location was also great, just a walk across the street to the best surfing beach for beginners and seasoned surfers, make sure you stay for the sunsets, stunning! The town is charming, with places to stop for ice cream and groceries as well as a sweet bakery to go to each morning for delicious coffee and baked goods. We like to travel to new places but Costa Rica continues to have a special place in our hearts and this home will be the place we come back to. I also believe they have a couple of smaller homes on the property that looked really cute for couples."

  • Stunning sunset view & marvelous modern home!

    "We live locally in San Jose and wanted a weekend escape during the off-season to Malpais. We had a perfect stay in this gorgeous house! What a view indeed -- it's like 180-degree view of the ocean. It is a steep climb but that's the price for a beautiful view. We had a 4x4 SUV and it was not a problem. The inside is crisp and modern and I wish my kitchen was this size at home! But the main attraction is the outdoor terrace and infinity pool, where we spent the bulk of our time...lounging, relaxing and soaking up nature: butterflies and greenry. The rooms are really big, and our friends who joined us and stayed in one of the bungalows loved how cozy it was. And they said there is an ocean view everywhere...from the bed, even from the bathroom! We will totally recommend this property to friends who are looking for a piece of paradise, and we'll be back!"

  • Wonderful Costa Rica Adventure

    "My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful villa with another couple to experience a less touristy area of Costa Rica. The house is great and everyone associated with it were very friendly and helpful. Bill turned us on to a couple of sights that we never would have known existed without him. While staying there we hiked, ziplined in Montezuma, Snorkeled at Tortuga Island, spent a day on the beach watching surfers and working on our tans. We saw monkeys every day either at the house or while we were out. we saw dolphins, turtles, anteaters, iguanas and more varieties of birds than I can name. If you ask if we enjoyed it......I have 6132 pictures that say yes we did."

  • Nie besser gefaulenzt! :)

    "Wir haben unsere letzten 2 Wochen Costa Rica in der Villa Katino verbracht, besser haben wir zuvor noch nicht gewohnt. Das Haus liegt wunderschön, absolut privat, der Ausblick ist tatsächlich sagenhaft, der Pool ist herrlich-es gibt eigentlich kaum großartig Gründe sich überhaupt noch mal nach unten zu bewegen. Wer nach absoluter Entspannung sucht ist hier genau richtig, man kann den ganzen Tag auf diversen Sitz und Liegelandschaften im Schatten verbringen, ab und zu in den Pool hüpfen und einfach die Ruhe genießen. Die Küche hat alles was man braucht um sich selbst zu versorgen, großer Kühlschrank/Gefrierfach, Gasherd, ein irrer Gasgrill,Microwelle und alle nötigen Utensilien nebst Saftmixer für Lecker Smoothies/Eisshakes, die Betten sind superbequem, im Hauptschlafzimmer hat man durch große Balkontüren den gleichen Wahnsinns Ausblick -so aufzuwachen hat schon was und wir vermissen es jetzt schon schmerzlich! Alles ist sehr schön gestaltet und eingerichtet, auf unnötigen Schnickschnack wurde verzichtet, sehr angenehm! An Tieren gab es hier mehr zu sehen als auf diversen Touren durch alle möglichen Parks-und vor allem viiiel näher dran! Tino ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber der sich um alles kümmert und über alles Bescheid weiß soweit man dies in Anspruch nehmen möchte, ansonsten hat man totale Ruhe, was uns immer sehr wichtig ist. Wir wollen auf jeden Fall gerne einmal wiederkommen und legen Villa Katino jedem ans Herz der dringend mal eine Auszeit braucht!"
