We've been here for a week and have two weeks left. Our stay here has been flawless so far. We were met at the airport by Mr. Knut (condo manager) and taken to the Condo by his taxi. Trip is about an hour. The condo is situated just off of a main road leading down to the beach (about a fifteen min walk). We're staying in a two bedroom on the first floor and am very happy with the layout, cleanliness, and proximity to shops, restaurants, and massages. Even though it's a condo, the cleaning lady (Maw) cleans daily. There is wi-fi and cable tv with a few english speaking news channels. The kitchen is equipped and bed sheets and towels provided. The pool is cleaned daily and there is a security person watching the facility at night. We have a balcony with nice gardens and fish. It's quieter up here on side on the hill and we hear mostly the sounds of various birds and lizards. Mr. Knut is your go-to person for all concerns and travel arrangements. He just scheduled us a day trip to the Phi Phi Islands by fast speedboat and we had a blast. The local Kata beach area is nice with lots of hotels, but it's also very crowded and noisy. Our stay here in the condo has been more tranquil and enjoyable. We would stay here again.
Apartment was large with lovely kitchen and lounge, it was cleaned daily. It was great to have the pool to come back to after a day out. About a 15-20 min walk from the beach as a family of 5 we offen got a taxi with Mr Nut the onsite manager, Mr Nut was always on hand if we wanted any advise and we had two days where he took us out to visit different attractions he denfintaly made our holiday special . Kata had a beautiful beach very family friendly & I would recommend a stay at this appartment, thanks Rob & Nina
Spotless apartment that had everything you needed. Pool was pristine and nice views from the deck. Not a huge walk to the beach and some great little restaurants close by.
Mr Nut was awesome.
If we ever come back we will stay at Katakiwiroo
From the moment we were picked up at the airport by Mr Nut, he truly could not do enough to help make our holiday perfect. Always unobtrusively on hand with ideas, help, and his taxi. We made the mistake of pre-booking three trips before we left the UK because they looked like good deals online. However, the reality was that we were herded around and ripped off by the company we used. Mr Nut then organised a day out with us, which he tailored to our wishes and we had the most amazing day, at half the price!! The apartment itself provided everything we could have needed, and more. The owners, Robb and Nina, were staying in the apartment above ours and were great. They always had time for a quick chat whilst also respecting the fact that we were on holiday and so were not intrusive at all. While our teens were happy to sleep away the mornings, my husband and I loved nothing more than an early start, swimming in the pool before others were up, then sitting on the balcony with a coffee and a good book whilst listening to the most amazing dawn chorus ever. Totally peaceful. Loved the fact that the apartment was nestled away among the trees, some way back from the beach with all it's accompanying activity. There was a lovely lady who came in and cleaned for us each day and she really went the extra mile, even taking our sandy shoes one day and rinsing them off and leaving them out to dry. We tried a number of places to eat, but kept returning to the Red Chair for good, reasonably priced Thai food, and the Istanbul Restaurant for good Turkish grub. If you are considering a stay at Katakiwiroo, give it a try. You won't be disappointed and you will come away totally relaxed. Thanks to all concerned for making our stay fantastic.

We loved our stay at KataKiwiRoo villa. It was perfect for us as it was quiet and out of the way yet only a few minutes to beaches and food.We hired a scooter which got us up and down quickly and easily as the walk on the side walk can be awkward but easy to do and worth it for the location of the villa. Mr Nut was a fabulous host and the cleaning ladies were fantastic. Big thumbs up
We travelled with our two daughters (11 & 15). The apartment was clean and well set out. As others say it's a 15 minute walk to the beach which at this time of year can be hot. The good news is there's plenty of bars and restaurants along the way if you need a break. The local restaurants within 5 minutes walk the apartments are brilliant. The Red Chair, Istanbul, Kata Turk and Pomodore were all good. Kata beach was great. The kids enjoyed plenty of time in the sea.
Rob and Nina were really easy to book though always responding quickly. The previous reviewers comments about Mr Nut, the caretaker, are completely accurate and close to an understatement. Nothing was ever a problem. Great advice on where to go and what to see. A great holiday.
We liked staying in Katakiwiroo. It was our second time. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Thanks to Mr.Nut and his wife Sah as they solved all our troubles and questions/
