We stayed at Oreanda for 6 nights recently, and we'd highly recommend it to anyone. The property manager, Tyler, was very helpful and friendly, always available for assistance or advice if and when you needed it (picking us up from the airport, helping with car reservations, booking adventure tours, even dinner recommendations). The property sits in a gated, quiet spot on several acres that, once entered feels entirely secluded, yet sits less than a five minute easy drive away from the strip of restaurants and bars that is Esperanza.
There is a main house and two casitas. We stayed at the casita at the back of the property. This provided plenty of privacy from the other two homes. Our casita was perfect for what we wanted; exotic, bright, airy, simple, clean, and affordable. There's a nice deck out front, and inside is everything you need; dishes, glassware, fridge, coffeemaker, books about the island, etc. There's also some beach chairs, coolers, and other items that are available for use.
The property itself is beautiful and well-maintained, with an amazing pool (with views of the ocean and surrounding hills) and shady patio area equipped with a full bbq and sink area, which we used one evening for a nice meal. This isn't a hotel, as the shower is outdoors and, as mentioned, you feel like you are in an area of secluded jungle, but you feel wrapped by the amazing property and amenities. It's the perfect combination of nature and comfort. If this is what you're looking for, you're not going to find a better place.
Have fun and tell Tyler hi for us!
