No running water, power outage, no discount

  • 1 of 5

This is beautiful location and a decent home. However, given the rate, you would expect basic conveniences.

The water didn't work for three days! The power also went out. How do you like flushing toilets with buckets of pool water? How about no showers. No ability to do the dishes. No operable filter on the pool.

This all happened to us, and I understand it's not the first time it has happened at this house. I give Hans and the staff credit for attending to the problems while we were still in the house, but it took a while to fix and half of our vacation to Costa Rica was inconvenienced by all of this.

We still had a good time, but one would expect some discount on the house during these unfortunate days, but quite the opposite. The property owner could care less. He has his money, and no desire to refund even a small proportion of the stay.

Owner's Response: This e-mail was sent to you from the owner of the property on August the 14th. 2016 as a response to your request to get a discount: Dear Mr. Scott L., I trust that you had a wonderful stay at my home in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. I understand that the water pump failed some time on Saturday Aug 6th, 2016. I will assume that the water on the day you check in early, Aug.4 was functioning properly. I also believe that we sent a service man out Saturday to make the repair, however, found out that we needed a new pump motor. I believe we were successful in acquiring a new pump and installed the motor on Monday. I am sorry that this event happened and I am willing to compensate you in any way possible to your satisfaction. Please let me know what would please you. Maybe the fact that you occupy the residence early on Thursday was some help to you. Please, if possible write a recommendation on our VRBO or Home away web site. Also please let me and the managers know about your stay at Casa Catalina and what we could do better to make our home your home. Thank you James P.

Beautiful Home and Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in Casa Catalina and it is one of the most incredible, beautiful homes that I have ever rented for a vacation.The views are unparalleled and really spectacular. The home itself is spacious and inviting. The infinity edge pool is the place to be! The onsite staff of Miguel and Manuela made sure you were kept safe and that the home was always in perfect condition. Breakfast is provided complimentary on your first morning and Lacey, the guard dog, was a real sweetheart. We vacationed with our niece and nephew (first trip to Costa Rica) and my sister-in-law and we were anxious to share many of Costa Rica experiences, favorite activities, and tours with them but they literally didn't want to leave the house! The road to the house is quite steep as it is with many of the homes in the area, but when you arrive you are rewarded with the most incredible views. In addition to the Living Room television, all of the bedrooms each have their own television with cable. I was even able to watch American football on Sunday. We also enjoyed the great sunsets on the Pacific ocean, the family of Howler monkeys in the trees right across from our front door, the iguanas feasting in the nearby bushes and scurrying across the yard, and a menagerie of birds. The home is absolutely perfect for several couples, a family, or a group of friends. Hans, the property manager, is a real delight and very helpful in greeting you upon arrival and giving you a tour of the home and property. He is always there to answer a call if you have any questions. It is possible to walk down the hill to town; I ventured out every morning to get some fresh baked goodies at the bakery at the bottom of the hill. The walk back up the hill is fine if you are looking for some exercise! Although not required, if you are renting a vehicle I do recommend a 4 wheel drive. We have been vacationing in Costa Rica for over 20 years and I must say that the road conditions have drastically improved in many areas. Views of Playa Grande and the Estuary are the absolute best form the pool area and you also have great views of Tamarindo beach on the deck with the outdoor bed on the front side of the house. Great place to relax on the outdoor bed and enjoy your coffee in the morning with the sunrise or in the evening with the sunset! Casa Catalina is the the best!!!

Peaceful Oasis in Bustling Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

Although fantastic, the pictures simply don't do it justice. The rooms were large and inviting. The infinity pool was the centerpoint around which the house was designed. Though just a short walk/drive from Tamarindo, the property is perched high up above the town affording us with the most amazing views and glorious sunsets. The onsite caretakers were kind, super attentive, but never intrusive -- and Lacey was the sweetest "guard dog" you'll ever meet. And Hans, the property manager, was available, generous and helpful every step of the way. Our family of 5 (3 kids, 10-14 yrs old) can't wait to come back!

Incredible Views and wonderful staff!

  • 5 of 5

I was concerned that the picture in the review would be more spectacular than the real thing, I was pleasantly surprised that in fact the view was even better than the photo. We booked this trip for Spring Break to meet our college age kids as it was geographically ideal to meet in Costa Rica from both the West Coast and the East Coast and the house was perfect for the 4 of us. Hans was a pleasure to deal with and the house staff were very nice and helpful. In particular we felt right at home with the house dog, Lacy. We wanted to relax in the pool and look at the view, which is almost all one needs to do as it really is that interesting. My son and I hung out in the pool and bird watched for hours and was amazed at all the species and activity. The house had everything one needs to feel at home. I highly recommend the property as an ideal location in Tamarindo.

Perfect And Private With All The Amenities

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 3 others for 4 nights. I wouldn't pick anywhere else to stay, even after seeing all the other houses nearby. The views were priceless. A short walk uphill takes you to the tallest point of Tamarindo which was awesome for sunsets. The interior of the house was very authentic, clean, comfortable, and homey.

As part of renting a house (as opposed to a villa or hotel room), we were worried that we wouldn't have all the services and amenities; however we were provided everything we could ask for and more: Upon arrival the property manager, Hans, met us at the house and drove me into town to show me where the ATMs and best places to go were (this was before we had access to a rental car). He couldn't have been more helpful.

We were also put in touch with Margarita, who organized a full day of activities for us and even cooked dinner at the house one night (upon request). She was great-- we told her what kind of activities we wanted and she put together everything and had further ideas for us, such as setting up masseuses to come to the house for massages.

The awesome local couple and their young son who live near the house provided maid, cleaning, laundry, and security services. They would see us coming up the hill and open the gate to the house for us every time with a big smile. Also, the morning of the day we left, they cooked a Costa Rican breakfast for us which was simple but by far the best breakfast we had the whole trip.

Then there was Layce, the "guard dog." What a sweetheart she was. We couldn't get enough of her company.

There were added bonuses that weren't mentioned in the listing description, such as an electric, full-body massage chair in one of the rooms. Another bonus (I think is mentioned briefly in the description) was a large, outdoor, covered bed that was perched behind the house; it casted an excellent view of Tamarindo, the ocean, and Langosta.

Book your stay at Casa Catalina and you won't be disappointed. There's nothing we would change about it!

We stayed at Villa Catalina only for a few days with our family. Guess what? We really were dissapointed we had to leave so early! In fact we have very little to add to the previous reviews... the house is gorguous. Ata first sight, when you get there you have a feeling of gertting into a fully equipped vintage (in th egood sense of this word!) villa. The villa is great, the conciereges are so nice and helpful, but being honest, nothing compared to the scenic view from the terrace and infinity pool. This was a unique experience!!

Last but not least, the Manager, Hans, was always at our service, what ever needed. In a nutshell: worth every penny, and honestly to come back here I would be prepared to pay even a bit more :-)
