Casa Lora is a lovely, well-maintained property set in the Tico neighborhoods of Coco. We researched in advance and knew that Coco was a walkable town and that Casa Lora was off the main strip, approximately 15-20 mins walk to the beach/downtown. We enjoyed the walk a couple times a day although the roads were quite dusty as January is... More

We stayed at Casa Lora for a total of 8 nights in August of 2014, and the experience quickly became the highlight of our Costa Rica vacation. Set back in a neighborhood, at Casa Lora you are sheltered from the bustle and lights of the town center. The short walk to town provides a refreshing dose of reality and a... More

We stayed at Casa Lora mid April 2014 with our three boys (9, 7 and 2 years old) and had a wonderful time. The place is quiet, surrounded by flowers, bushes, and palm trees. The apartments are extraordinary tidy and big. You can have breakfast on your private balcony and after that relax at the pool (with a shallow part... More

I live in the capital, San Jose, and a group of friends and I stayed in Casa Lora for New Year's Eve of 2013 after exploring other options, but this is by far the best one. You get a fully equipped two-story apartment that can fit up to 7 people, with a nice balcony, a hammock, a pool (which is... More

We stayed at Casa Lora for just 4 nights in the small apartment. We had everything we needed - good bathroom with hot water in the shower, excellently equipped kitchen, air conditioning, fans, tv and the pool was right outside our front door. You also get a little patio area with a table and chairs and hammock. It's just a... More

We were a couple visiting from Toronto, Canada and found Sabine & Peter to be extremely friendly and helpful. They're units are very clean and it was nice to have hot water for showering. The grounds are beautiful, giving a feeling of being in your own tropical paradise.

We had to take a taxi from the main street to Casa Lora (it doesn't appear on the town map) but it was well worth it. Although we didn't have reservations, Sabine welcomed us inside the gates to show us her apartments. They have 2 types of units - studio apartments and the houses. We opted to rent a house... More

Casa Lora Apartments was a great place to stay for our recent Visa run from Nicaragua. We were two couples traveling together and stayed in one of the little houses. We found the kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable (one couple slept on the futon). Everywhere was immaculate and we loved the lush tropical feel of the... More

This is a nice budget option if you want to stay in the Playa de Coco area but not in one of the fancy and expensive resorts. It's located in a residential area, but just a short walk to two supermarkets and plenty of places that can organize excursions for you. The place has a small kitchen area in case... More
