I stayed at the Casa Laurin in November 2016 with my sister and step-mom. I was pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the accommodations. Our room and the common areas were clean, comfortable and peaceful as well. We had a room with an amazingly beautiful view, but no matter where I was in the B&B, I enjoyed being there and... More

You will not be disappointed in Casa Laurin. Ginette, the owner, goes far and beyond any expectations a traveler might have. Ginette serves fresh fruit and juices each morning with a full course breakfast. You may request your favorite breakfast foods. Casa Laurin is beautiful, well appointed and very clean. It is located within walking distances to shopping, dentist, Costa... More

Ginette Laurin is the consummate host and our trip was made all the better with her assistance and guidance. Highly recommend Ginette, her staff, and the comfortable accommodations of Casa Laurin. She coordinates with/for you from the time you land to the time you depart which is much appreciated when you are not familiar with your surroundings or local customs.

As before, I stayed at Casa Laurin, which is within walking distance of the dental offices, and during both visits was most pleased with my room - clean, fresh and quiet - and the helpfulness of Ginette and staff extending to choices...

If there has ever been a place and a person that has exceeded all expectation in our travels, it is Casa Laurin and Ginette. We stayed with her for just four nights, but her advice and help started long before we arrived. We had been to Costa Rica several times before and had rented cars before. This trip was going...
