Words could simply not do justice to how magnificent Catarina's space is. I stumbled upon her listing in the midst of finding a location for my wedding. I went ahead and booked her studio for my bridal suite and the space in her yard for the location of my wedding. From start to end she was readily available to assist in every way not to mention was so kind and patient with the whole process right down to the day of the wedding. I highly recommend her space!!

Catarina effortlessly makes you feel as if this home is your own. It's tucked away in what feels like a jungle, canopied under tropical trees and has a beautifully crafted private back deck. It's the perfect bnb in Coconut Grove by far. My husband didn't get love from mosquitos as much as I did but regardless it is still a gem and worth staying. We enjoyed!

This quiet little piece of heaven is still wonderful. Catarina really makes you feel at home. It's almost unfortunate because home isn't nearly as nice.

Catarina User Profile

I was born & raised in Costa Rica and came to the US for college to study Chemistry and German and go back to the family business. I never went back for good. I ended up living in Germany and England and a decade in Los Angeles before moving to Miami, Florida where I've lived almost 10 years ago. I've travelled to remote areas of the world & have met amazing people. Being blessed by the Maasai tribe in Africa with the name Nemeyian, the blessed one has been more than a blessing. Back in 2103, I quit my corporate real estate job after finishing the interior remodeling of an abandoned structure in Coconut Grove, Miami which I now call home. Back in 2016, after finishing the outside deck & gym, I went back to Africa to dig a water bore hole for my tribe, amongst a few other projects. I now live from the renting of my place in Miami & from managing my family's locations in Costa Rica. The awesome dream deck is rented for all sorts of awesome events when it is not rented for tourists, many which have become my friends. I live a very simple, happy and free life which revolves around adventure, community, creativity, friendship, health, movement, nature and philanthropy. Volunteering in medical missions & learning from tribes in remote areas of the Peruvian Amazon has been my latest passion.
