Holiday Rental House
The view of Tamarindo Bay from Casa Catalina is literally breathtaking. Set at the top of a seaside hill 330 feet above the sand, there is no other property that affords a view of the ocean or the sense of serenity present here. Beyond the terrace, the infinity edge pool and the property’s tropical garden, the earth drops away, leaving you suspended in a dream-like panorama of sky and sea. This single story home offers over 3,000 sq. ft. of terra cotta tile floors and high wooden ceilings all flooded with natural light. In the home’s common area, a large kitchen/dining area/living room opens through sets of sliding glass doors onto the ocean view terrace that overlooks the pool and forested hillside.

Set at the top of a seaside hill 330 feet above the sand, there is no other property that affords a view of the ocean or the sense of serenity present here. Beyond the terrace, the infinity edge pool and the property’s tropical garden, the earth drops away, leaving you suspended in a dream-like panorama of sky and sea. This single story home offers over 3,000 sq. ft. of terra cotta tile floors and high wooden ceilings all flooded with natural light. In the home’s common area, a large kitchen/dining area/living room opens through sets of sliding glass doors onto the ocean view terrace that overlooks the pool and forested hillside.

This spot is the gem of the house; the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, take an afternoon nap, or sip a sunset drink while you grill the catch of the day.
