The views from this location are stunning it's secluded and peaceful. Loved the covered outdoor space and also the convenience of only being 10-15 minutes from town. Those that helped Tino were very responsive and accommodating. The road to the house is definitely off the beaten path and a car would probably drag the bottom in some spots so a SUV or ground clearance needed. I was in a Hyundai Tucson. Had no problems.thanks for the memories.

Can't say enough great things about Tino's place. We've stayed at Airbnbs throughout Costa Rica, and Tino's was hands down the best spot. Like others before us have said, the driveway is steep and will require 4WD (so you should go to the supermarket to buy provisions before checking in, as you likely won't want to venture back out too often), and you should bring a mosquito net for the bugs at night, but the views, privacy, and amenities offered at Villa Katino are unbeatable and absolutely worth the minor hassle of bugs and a moderately difficult driveway. Also, we wish we had taken Tino up on his offer to rent his ATV during our stay, as the driveway (and roads in general around the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula) are much more easily navigated by ATV than by car. We saw more wildlife up close and personal than any of the national parks we visited in Costa Rica -- one afternoon, a family of howler monkeys visited, and the next morning -- white faced monkeys! We highly recommend getting the personal chef service, which was some of the best food we had on our trip thus far.

My girlfriend and I visited Villa Katino for five days and it was an incredible experience. Tino is the perfect host and always makes sure you have everything you need. He met us in town when we arrived to say hello and show us where everything was. We took advantage of all the eating recommendations he gave us and we were not disappointed. Tino escorted us through the beautiful jungle to the private villa where everything was perfectly prepared and he always checked in every morning via text to ask if we needed anything or to see if he could help us set up one of the cool adventures and excursions in the area. All the reviews that say you find yourself not wanting to leave the villa are true. Once you see the view of the Pacific Coastline from up in your private place in the jungle it is hard to leave and we were also fortunate enough to see some monkeys climbing around in the trees behind us. The town of Mal Pais is really cool. It is a small surfer town, super chill, and the beaches are one of a kind. The surrounding towns are also beautiful and have a lot to offer. The only negative that came out of this was wondering how we were going to top a trip like this. If you want to experience relaxation, seclusion, privacy, remoteness, adventure and the culture of Costa Rica with a cool, knowledgeable host you cannot beat this.

Tino's villa is place of beauty and adventure and he is a great host. From helping to book a taxi to pick us up at the airport to driving us to our next lodging in Mal Pais he went above and beyond the call of duty. The villa is on an amazing hilltop with one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. My wife and I(on our honeymoon) loved swimming in the infinity pool and taking the ATV into town. Truly a place for adventure seekers between the surrounding wildlife of the jungle and the rugged beauty of Mal Pais its easy to see why people fall in love with the place. The only draw back for us was the rainy season came early due to el nino but we made the best of it.

The host, Tino, is great at communicating both prior to the time of arrival and once you are there. He ensured that everything was set up for us when we arrived. We had a private chef, Nancy, come cook for us one night and it was some of the most amazing food we've ever had. The view was absolutely spectacular and we took full advantage of the pool and hot tub. Tino provided us with two ATV's that we used during one of our days, and it was incredibly convenient and easy. A cleaning service came while we were gone and cleaned up everything for us. The view from the villa is truly breathtaking. I would highly recommend watching the sunset from there over the ocean. One of our party was up early enough to hang out with some howler monkeys who came by to say hello. Overall, it was an amazing experience and we would definitely do it again.

We had a wonderful time at Villa Katino and Tino was an awesome host We couldn't have asked for anything more. Note that the bakery you will be meeting at prior to check-in is at in Carmen. Malpais and the villa is a short drive South into the fishing village and up into the mountains. I would highly recommend a 4x4 for the drive but once you get there to rent Tino's ATV for traveling back and forth up the coast and back home to paradise. We spent days out at the beach and cooking at home in the open kitchen and living space or we stayed at the villa all day by the pool and toured into towns for dinner and night caps. Tino has great suggestions for restaurants, beaches and activities. He is always there for you if anything comes up or if you happen to need anything.
