Katie Duncan and her cohort, Tim Leachman have turned a great experience into a horrific nightmare of lies deceit, and sleazy business dealings, spoiling the past 6 months of our stay in Costa Rica. The dumps they rent are awful, with sketchy water service, outrageous rules, poor at best wifi, and questionable electric service, The gardener is entrusted with the... More

Comfortable, clean, beautiful view of the bay. Room had refrigeration and microwave and dishes. Katie is so helpful. Good food at the marina across the street, and down toward the village. Friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay and would go back.

Although we did not cook, the kitchen is fully stocked for creating a wonderful meal. The staff was helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this property for an... More

I've stayed at the Vista Villas on a multiple occasions and will continue to do so on return trips to Golfito. The villas are very "homey" and well appointed, with great gulf views and close to everything in town. They are right across the street from Banana Bay restaurant, which has great food if you aren't in the mood to... More

We have stayed in both levels of the Marina Vista Villa apartments, and look forward to returning again the winter. Last year we brought friends and rented both levels which worked perfect for all of us. Vista... More

The bed was very comfortable, lots of pillows, AC and fans, the kitchen was well equipped and you could sit for hours and watch the... More

Staying at the Golfito Marina Vista Villas was really comfortable. The space to relax, comfortable bed and furniture was a welcome relief after the long trip to get to Golfito. The apartment sized suite has everything you could ask for with full kitchen, brand new appliances, cable tv, wifi and great views of Golfito bay with boats coming and going.... More
