Villa Katarina is located in a gated community just 2 miles south of Dominical, perched on a rainforest hillside, overlooking the one-kilometer long Dominicalito Beach, which is 10 minutes' walk away. The view of the Pacific Ocean from here is simply stunning, a totally unobstructed 180 degree panorama. And all around the villa are trails and back-country roads where you can walk for miles while being embraced by nature.
The villa offers 2 bedrooms, both furnished with a queen size bed and both have en-suite bath and shower. There is also a double-size futon bed in the TV lounge that can sleep two additional persons. In addition to the TV lounge another cable TV is available in the main sitting room. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities. There is a dedicated laundry room with washer and dryer. Internet connection is provided upon request.
The community features 24-hour security with foot patrol, gated and manned entry, which is just 150 meters from the coastal main road turnoff. The villa is easily accessed year-round; however, due to the rapid rise from sea level to about 300 ft elevation, a four wheel drive will be needed in the wet season.

The view was absolutely wonderful. Air conditioning was a must and it worked well. The showers needed repair so they didn't squirt onto the floor. Water pressure was good.
It was best to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up to the condo.
We had a taxi refuse to take us up because he didn't have 4 wheel drive. It is also located remotely enough that you need to cook or have transportation to eat out. Alex the concierge was helpful and everyone was friendly.
