We are working to become a more sustainable and environmentally friendly inn. We have decided not to build a pool on our site because the ocean is one block away and we have access to a pool which guest can use at the day rate of $10 per person.
Interaction with Guests
Karla is our on site person who can help you with details. She will meet you so we need to know the time you will arrive.
Playa Ocotal is one of my favorite beach communities. It is a ten minute taxi ride to a busy little town where you can have great meals, purchase what you need and explore the local culture. We are located in a small gated community with only one beach restaurant and very little activity.
We think renting a small - the least expensive vehicle is best. Try expedia for a deal. You don't need off road - again, the smallest just to get you around the area.
Other Things to Note
If you have a car, Karla can help direct you to sights so you can explore the area.
No smoking or cooking in rooms. We have a community outdoor kitchen. If you destroy the sheets, towels - break the tv or window - we'll ask you to pay. Oh! Please turn off the air when you leave the room - I promise you when you return it will only take 5 minutes for it to cool the room.
The listing was exactly as expected and Carla was a wonderful host!
I loved this place and would happily go back. It was a very good value, walking distance to beach and a gorgeous view. My husband, 21-year-old son (with special needs) and I enjoyed Ocotal and Casa Lotus very much. Karla is lovely, warm and interesting to talk with. The room we had was clean and comfortable, with a particularly nice, tiled shower! Couple of pieces of advice to future renters: be prepared for stairs and take Karla seriously when she says to pick up supplies at the Auto Mercado in Coco on your way in. We bought juice and water and snacks, but went back the next day for coffee, milk and soap. Karla lives in the house, so she was easily accessible and only a call away when not. We saw monkeys, squirrels, lizards and lots of boats -- at the beach. Great sunsets, too! Enjoyed Father Rooster -- food was actually better than expected! Say hello to Bernardo for us.
Casa Lotus is in a great location, just a short walk from beautiful beach and 5 min drive to playa del Coco with some great restaurants and food markets. the studio is very clean and spacious, hot water in the shower! Adriane was very responsive over the email and Karla was a great help with everything we needed on site. highly recommended.
Adriene was away but Karla helped us with taxis etc. This is a clean modern unit on a hill with views about 10 min walk down to a nice little beach (returning is a brisk walk up). We were looking to get away and this worked. The town is a$5 taxi ride away where there another nice beach, more restaurants and supermarkets. There is a sm kitchen downstairs but microwave, fridge and sink in unit is good for coffee, breakfast etc Having just returned home I would say this is good value after all the overpriced hotels and restos in Costa Rica.
Adriane was easy to communicate and helped with navigating the area and Karla arranged everything including taxi. The place is simple and has everything you need. The beautiful playa Ocotal is minutes away. If you don't have a car, there is a steep hill to climb to the studio which makes a nice place for hiking. Room cleaning and laundry is extra $$. The kitchen and fridge is bonus.
