Casa Pinita--Great Place to stay while in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
Hello all.

Everythign was perfect during our week-long vacation at Casa Pinita (Las Catalinas, Costa Rica)

Casa Pinita is a great place to relax. And it is perfect for 2 families to share. It is designed with 2 master suites on the first floor (each with en sutie bathroom); a guest room and kitchen and family room on the second floor; and on the third floor is a huge room with 6 twins beds (4 bunk and 2 trundle)--perfect for all the kids.

Each morning breakfast was prepared by the "house Mother"---an attendant provided as part of the rental. And she even kept all of our clothing washed and dried and put away. That is a feat in itself.

Casa Pinita was exactly as described on VRBO and was very clean and well maintained. On the second floor, there is a large patio with a very nice gas grill.....we made chicken and beef kebabs one evening and grilled fish another. The kitchen is great for those who like to cook....and there is a nice blender for those who like to make margaritas!

The concierge services at Las Catalinas were perfect as well. They checked in with us each day to see if we needed anything. They booked various day trips for us (sailboat ride with snorkeling, zip line, river boat cruise) and handled a rental car issue that we had and set up massage and Chef services. They directed us to local restaurants and to the local grocery stores as we needed.

Great vacation!!






I would whole-heartedly recommend this rental for a Costa Rican vacation. In fact, we will probably reserve it again in the near future.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
La Pinita offers a spectaular array of amenities. The beach is easily accessible opening to your own piece of paradise. Sunsets are prisms of color; sunrises warm and yawning! The sand softly touches the toes ... the ocean inviting a swim. La Pinita nestles itself quitely within that ecospace ... three stories of Costrican sand castle. My wife and I love this place!!

Understated luxury in a beachfront setting

  • 5 of 5
My Casa Pinita experience was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived and walked along the pedestrian-only walkways reminiscent of old Mediterranean towns, we knew coming here had been a great choice. The house's three level design with rooms and social areas on separate levels allowed everyone to have more than enough privacy and quiet when they needed it while the spacious kitchen/living room/lounge and patio area were great for socializing, barbecuing and hanging out.

We loved the understated luxury furnishings and pampering we got. Fresh handmade tortillas made from scratch and traditional "Tico" breakfast prepared by our always-smiling "house mama" Anita was a special treat. It really allowed us all to get a hands on taste of the local Pura Vida lifestyle and Costa Rican joie de vivre (or is it "je ne sais quoi"?).

The protected beach has gentle waves which is great for families with kids and the water was so clear I saw many colorful parrotfish and even a spotted eagle ray gliding gracefully beneath my Stand Up Paddleboard.

Can't wait to go back!

Costa Rican Adventure

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation home. I made a video of the best memories of my trip... feel free to watch http://youtu.be/-t43wr22rg0 .We visited Casa Pinita with a group of friends this summer. With its private beach the house is luxurious and very spacious. I enjoyed the Costa Rican people the most. The staff at Casa Pinita helped us arrange mountain biking, deep see fishing, scuba & zip lining. Brasilito is a small town 10 minutes away where you can buy groceries and enjoy meeting other locals. If you are training for a race (running, tri, swimming) this is also a spot for elite athletes. The house has its own kayak and a paddle board, I went snorkeling everyday.The food at the restaurant next door is delicious and the host Tanya will make you feel at home immediately. I recommend the ceviche mixto or the vegetarian spring roles. Casa Pinita comes with its own maid (Anita) and she is amazing, always smiling and helping you feel relaxed. I took too many clothes as I did not realize the house was fully equipped with a top of the line washer and dryer. Anita carefully washed and folded my clothes everyday. The night was very quiet so sleeping was a joy. We woke up to a fresh local tropical juice followed by amazing Costa Rican coffee and local breakfast. I have travelled to other places in South America, Europe and Asia, and nothing compares to this experience.

I'll be back in a heartbeat

Upon arrival

I loved how clean, safe, and incredibly comfortable the house was immediately. The beach is footsteps away and there is a wonderful restaurant beach side along the beach front promenade.

With more time

How soon can I get back, I kept thinking. Who else can I tell about this place? How smart was I for selecting this house in this part of Costa Rica.

Overall assessment

You will love the location, incredible staff, amazing beach and tropical wonderland vibe. These things definitely exceeded my expectations. I've stayed in Costa Rica before, at a private home, and the difference with this one is the staff who looked after us like family, private access to the beach, and a great community feel. The layout of the area (it's a town in the making with a surf shop, a great restaurant, and cobblestoned streets) made me feel like I was staying in a colonial town (think Old San Juan meets a Tuscan village) that happens to be part of a resort (like Club Med but with better food and no crowd).

What we did

The two beaches that are part of the property have amazing rock formations that are teaming with underwater life. Perfect for snorkeling. I saw an octopus, 100s of unique and very colorful fish, starfish, sea urchins, and I played tag with a few puffer fish. Nearby we visited small towns with lots of character, went fishing (highly recommended), and had some wonderful local meals. My friends did the tour and zip lining adventure as well. We had a bunch of cooks in the house too and we had multiple meals together in the house (easy access to supermarkets in the area, helps to speak Spanish). It was an easy kitchen to work in and had everything we needed -- we cooked our own fish, made soup, and even slow cooked a brisket on the outside grill. We were in food heaven. The mornings were fruit and a neat "Tico" breakfast prepared by our wonderful head house lady, Anita.

I'm coming back. This home is a real treat.

Both Inviting and Elegant

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Casa Pinita as part of a large group, including numerous children, in July of 2013. Both CP itself and Las Catalinas as a whole exceeded our expectations. We would love to visit again in the future!

Many beach condos I have stayed in over the years were overpriced relative to how updated the property was. Not so with CP. It is newly built, and, as such, is in great shape. Its design and décor exudes a comfortable Central American sensibility. On the ground level are two bedrooms with attached baths, a courtyard, and an outdoor shower. The middle level is the heart of the property. It includes a fantastically equipped kitchen, a living area, and a large kitchen table. I would also be remiss if I did not mention the wonderful selection of books and games arrayed on the wood shelving behind the television. A patio area on this level that overlooks the development was also a hub of social activity, as we cooked several meals on the grill during our week there. The middle level also includes a small study/nanny suite with attached full bath. Finally, the upstairs provided a wonderland for children in our group. With four bunk beds and two trundle beds, we were comfortably able to sleep all of the children upstairs.

Our “house mama” was a great amenity. She cooked us a traditional Costa Rican breakfast each morning, as well as guacamole in the afternoon. Absolutely delicious. The staff at Las Catalinas were also extremely helpful and responsive, both in resolving minor issues with the condo, and in recommending local attractions. In particular, we enjoyed zip lining at Hacienda Guachipelin and a catamaran snorkeling trip. Also not to be missed is hiking on the trails above Las Catalinas; the views are magnificent.

All in all, a top notch property and development that will only get better as time passes. The contingent staying in CP was part of a larger group of 25; more than a few of our party enjoyed the stay so much that they looked into purchasing one of the units at Las Catalinas. It was definitely a memorable vacation.
