My boyfriend and I stayed at the Casa Rara for a whole week and we truly loved this darling house.
First of all, it’s great location: it’s in the West End, a 5-7minute walk takes you to the ocean and the main road where you’ll find the restaurants, bars and numerous dive shops!
So if you’re looking for privacy and a quiet retreat to fall back onto, the casa is the right place! Close to everything yet far enough so you don’t hear the island’s nightlife.
You'll love to settle down with a book on one of the two hammocks hanging in the vast open covered porch or just sit there and listen to the birds chirping or the breeze in the luscious flora surrounding the casa.
This house can easily accommodate 6 people (or more if you have young kids). A big plus: a clothes washer to do laundry! :-)
If you’re looking for a place to let go of the stress or to throw a small party for your new friends, that’s the place to be!
Also, our two hosts, Desiree and Tanya were always very helpful and made sure everything was there to meet our needs and make our stay comfortable.
On another note, be careful about using the ATM machines in West End as most of them will clone your cards and make your money disappear in no time! Use the one at the gas station or go to the bank.
