Staying at Olga's on Baru Island is a must if you want to get away from it all. It's so peaceful and beautifully designed and every detail is considered. The food they prepare is delicious and healthy and there are beers you can take on an honor system. The beach that the house sits on is beautiful and quiet and we preferred that to the crazy Playa Blanca. She can arrange for transfer from the airport to the house. There are plenty of books and magazines for lounging on the hammocks, and there are two friendly dogs and a cat to play with. We hope to go back again soon!
Escaping the crowd and omnipresent vendors on Playa Blanca to this great little hideaway was definitely a highlight of our trip. Essentially you're a short (but exciting) motorcycle taxi away from Playa Blanca, but once at the beach house you the crowds are long gone and you're free to lounge, read, sleep (or whatever!) your time away to the sound of the waves. We originally planned to spend more time at playa blanca, but ended up spending most of our two days in Baru staying at the property making our way from the private deck, to the nearby beach and downstairs hammocks. The open to air rooms are wonderful and decorated perfectly to suit their surroundings. For couples I highly recommend the second floor room with the private bathroom.
We did not meet Olga but she was always a phonecall away and ensured everything went smoothly from arrival, actual stay and activities in and around the beach house. The staff was incredibly friendly and each meal was (email hidden)om two kinds of coconut rice to perfectly cooked fish.
The host canceled my reservation 100 days before arrival.
