About
Description
La Casa is located in front of the beach with spectacular views of the ocean and the lagoon. With lots of comfortable, shared spaces, La Casa is a home-away-from-home for the traveler looking relish in More the beauty, authenticity, and tranquility of the Ecuadorian coast. The three-story house has a shared kitchen, six private rooms with bathrooms en-suite, and two private suites with private kitchens and a terrace. Residents of the hotel often book a room for 2 weeks, but more often than not, they stay for 3 months, or even sometimes for a year (seriously). At La Casa, we encourage you to immerse yourself in this small, coastal beach town where you can practice your Spanish with locals or take formal Spanish courses, where you can surf twice a day or on lazy days swing in a hammock while watching epic sunsets and drinking a fresh coco. But most of all, we encourage you to soak up inspiration from the beauty that surrounds you here and, until then, La Casa awaits you :-) Less
