  • Relaxing on a quiet beach!

    "The great -- The house is on a great quiet beach with a beach bar and restaurant 100 feet away (weekends only). Going to sleep every night to the rhythmic sounds of the ocean. Casa Blanca is a 25 minute walk or 5 minute taxi down the beach to Olan where there are restaurants with good music and lots of beach bars. If more action is desired a 10 minute taxi to Montanita. The house is comfortable and roomy. The 2 porches are great for socializing and watching the sun go down. Fish venders are up and down the beach all morning hawking inexpensive shrimp and fish. The outstanding – Carolina and Enrique. When the cooking gas ran out at 7 AM we called them thinking that we would get gas on Ecuador time. There were over in less than 10 minutes with a new tank of gas. When they cleaned the house it was spotless. They are a fun and loving couple who made us laugh. The not so good -- Internet and water were spotty. This was not a Casa Blanca problem as our friends staying in Olan had the same problems. Call it Ecuador."

  • OK so what's the best you are hoping for

    "If you want quality -privacy--hospitality -look right here! A little jewel in front of your nose! And it's true--a lovely ambiance with privacy for those getaways enjoyed a la sola or juntos. Doesn't matter really-the birds are magic --the grounds are magic and the apartment is lovely. Check out the beautiful plants while admiring the waterfalls in the distance and it feels as though you have moved from one sphere to another-circling orbs.I'm going back--don't take my booking--wink!"

  • Quite, with spectacular views of the volcanos

    "These condos are units of 4 and ours was on the top left; lovely neighbors right below, others traveling. Interior design reminded me of medieval keeps with a very large, open living room, dining room, kitchen with at least 20 foot ceilings, some skylights, and lots of dark beams and dark wood through out. We did not need the fireplace, but it was nice to have. The master bedroom was huge, gorgeous, and the bathroom very nice with jets in the tub as well as a great shower. I took the guest bedroom, also very large, bathroom just out the door, so available to guests as well. The only drawback was that the tap water could not be used for cooking because the well had become contaminated with ecoli. Of course, we only used bottled water for drinking, cooking, and brushing our teeth. I do hope the Home Owners Association will remedy this as soon as possible. The enclave, call Jauha Pacha, was a kilometer from downtown, a walk downhill through homes of indigenous Quecha people, then a climb of 4 blocks to the bus terminal and market. By taxi, it was just $2.50 from our door. Cotacachi is only about 10,000 people, the leather capital of the country, so shopping was fun and prices were quite reasonable. One of our favorite days was spent with a local guide who took us to the villages where we saw weavers starting with raw wool and finishing with gorgeous shawls, blankets, bags, and more. We also got to go to a local artist who does amazing wall hangings in designs both modern or native. Also that afternoon, we went to see the family that makes the range of flutes and other instruments; they did a concert for us and have toured all over Europe and South America. Lastly he took us to a 300-year-old hacienda, owned by the same family for generations, where we had an excellent upscale lunch. This tour was just $25.00 each, so find Luis at his store just across from the Cotacachi bus terminal. We loved being in this interesting small town."

  • A relaxing home away from home.

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Rincon de Olon. The room was clean and comfortable with a ceiling fan as well as an air conditioner. Just a short walk down the street to the beach makes it a very convenient location. It is also very close to the main road in case you are looking to take a taxi or bus to surrounding areas. Also, there are plenty of small shops and a few restaurants nearby. The service provided by Chris, his wife, Victor, and the kitchen staff was great! Chris spoke English (which is kind of rare for Ecuador) and was always very friendly and accommodating. He provided information and suggestions for the area which was very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and consisted of fresh fruit juice, coffee, sliced fruit, eggs, cheese, sliced meats, and a ton of bread (I mean, lots of bread). I would recommend to anyone looking for a relatively quiet (we came around New Years) and relaxing place to stay."
