Overview

This easygoing sociability continues into the home, where outdoor terraces and a large outdoor porch, open concept living and dining with barbecue grill, and diverse sleeping spaces with room for eleven make time inside the home lively and fun.

This home is on Calle La Ronda, just a short walk from Playa Danta in the heart of Las Catalinas. The beach, the trails, and all that town has to offer are only a few steps away along car-free streets, so kids and parents have the freedom to explore and spend time together.

Inside the home, a ground floor courtyard unites the rooms on the first floor in the open air. Location right inside the front door makes this courtyard a naturally social transition space that facilitates moments together when entering or exiting the home.

The next level up is an indoor-outdoor social floor with connecting living room, dining room, kitchen, and an adjacent outdoor porch with grilling area. The indoor open concept space features several smaller seating areas whereas the ample covered outdoor terrace forms a lively space where the whole group can spend time together.

On the ground floor there is a guest bedroom with a king bed that opens to the ground floor terrace, and a master bedroom with a king bed and lounge seating. On the second floor, there’s a guest bedroom with a view over town in two directions. Finally, on the top floor there’s a colorful bunk room for six, which offers a welcoming space and immediate access to the connecting roof terrace. The result is a space that serves as a lookout tower and play room, where kids can be kids and sometimes adults can be kids too.

This home also has a House Mom, who will prepare breakfast, keep the home tidy, and make snacks in the afternoon. She’s a local Costa Rican who helps make you feel at home as a host for your stay. With her help, the combination of social spaces and relaxing bedrooms, and a town full of experiences, there’s something for everyone in Casa Pinita.

Las Catalinas

Surrounded by tropical nature on land and at sea, Las Catalinas is a beautiful, car-free, fully walkable beach town in Costa Rica. The purpose is to create a way of life that is healthy, sustainable, fulfilling, and fun. Definitely one of the most fun things to do at Las Catalinas is simply to explore the town. Most of the streets are made for people. Every little passage seems to lead to a beautiful plaza or a view of the ocean.

Baranda Villas Collection

Charming residences, friendly service, and thoughtful amenities make this the best way to embrace life in town. Baranda is comprised of studios, flats, and up to six bedroom homes with remarkable locations in town, all just a short walk away from the beach, as well as town’s restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities.

Activities

Boogie Boarding

Playa Danta is one of the best body surfing and boogie boarding beaches you will ever find. Go at medium to low tides when the beach is very flat. The swells are typically moderate, safe, spaced 15 seconds apart, and perfectly formed. These waves are unlike anything many of us have seen in other parts of the world. Costa Rica has many famous surfing beaches but Las Catalinas is partially sheltered from the prevailing southern swell, and that is what makes Playa Danta “just right” for boogie boarding.

Snorkeling

Some of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica is right at Las Catalinas. The best spots are wherever you see rocks: the far side of Playa Dantita, the reef in between Danta and Dantita, along the shore of Punta Penca, or out at the Islotes Pitahayas islands just offshore. You’ll find lots of reef fish, coral, interesting underwater topography, big spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and who knows what else.

Kayaking and Paddle-Boarding

Las Catalinas is an ideal location for sea kayaking and stand up paddle-boarding. The protected bay of Playa Danta is perfect for beginners and often offers glassy smooth conditions. The Islotes Pitahayas just one kilometer offshore are a great destination with the swell surging dramatically on the rocks. The islands are a famous nesting site of pelicans and frigate birds. The coastline in both directions is dramatic and interesting with a variety of beautiful beaches, cliffs and great snorkeling and swimming all within paddling range.

Yoga and Fitness

With an average temperature of 74 degrees year round, Las Catalinas is the perfect place to get in a fitness groove. Weather it's weekly interval training classes, beach front yoga under an almendro tree, or grabbing some weights, this is a mecca for athletes and yogis alike.

Shopping and Dining

In the shops of Las Catalinas, you’ll find everything you need to elevate your stay in town. Get outfitted to enjoy town and outdoors, set a course to learn about ocean protection, bring home an unexpected Costa Rican gift, give some local life and flair to your home, or relax and take care of your body. It’s all here, and it’s all within a few minutes’ walk.

Guanacaste is quickly becoming a major player in Costa Rica’s culinary scene, and Las Catalinas offers some of the best options around available just a few steps from your front door.

Beach Club

Located on a bluff overlooking the beach, Las Catalinas Beach Club is a central gathering spot for local residents and visitors to socialize, dine, exercise and enjoy an array of amenities for the whole family including:

  • 25 Meter lap pool with four swim lanes
  • Separate adult lounging pool and hot plunge pool
  • Ample seating and comfortable lounge chairs
  • Kids play pool
  • Hot tub
  • All-day dining at the Beach Club restaurant
  • Cocktail bar
  • Octagonal pavilion available for private events
  • Exercise room with weightlifting and cardio equipment
