“A very beautiful property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Casa Lora, April 10-13. Sabine and Peter are great hosts.Both very friendly, and maintain a very beautiful piece of property. The property is gated in and locked and very safe. We loved walking the neighborhood, where you will see lots of chickens, roosters, dogs, cats, bull frogs, howler monkeys, and a lot of friendly children and family's. The walk to the beach takes about 15-20 minutes. We walked in the day and night, and we felt very safe here. Out of the 5 b+b's we stayed in our 2 weeks in Costa Rica, Casa Lora would rate number 1. Thank you Sabine and Peter.

Just spent a month at Casa Lora and felt so at home we wished we had stayed longer (and will next time). Peter and Sabine are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay a pleasure. They always had a few moments to chat and were most helpful with local info. The property is clean and very well maintained. The garden and pool are lovely and it was great to sit on the balcony and just enjoy. We felt safe and secure all the time we were there, even walking home at night. The location is a typical Tico family neighbourhood with a variety of homes from very modest to luxurious. Highly recommended for a true Costa Rica experience.

Room Tip: Air conditioning and fans upstairs and down as well as outside fan on balcony.

A real gem! Casa Lora truly is a lush tropical oasis with its beautiful gardens, tantalizingly cool pool and entertaining garden wildlife. Right from the warm welcome on arrival, Peter and Sabine make sure that your stay is as comfortable and happy as possible. We stayed 4 weeks! Highly recommended.

This was an excellent holiday here- wonderful host &hostess and very helpful when we asked for info on the area.
The fauna, plants flowers surrounding the pool are beautiful and add to the general beauty of the property.
The apartment is clean and spacious and very well kept.
Appliances such as washer, stove and fully furnished kitchen added to our enjoyment and comfort.
We will certainly repeat this trip!

Room Tip: if travelling with disabled person, try for a downstairs unit.

We spent some weeks at casa lora this july and I must say it was absolutly great. The apartment was really nice and clean and it felt like home. The garden is something special with a lot of flowers and trees, and we really enjoyded the wildlife with lots of birds and sometimes we saw monkeys. Just to sit outside and enjoy the night near the pool and use the bbq was fantastic. The city of Coco is interresting and has a lot of options for dinning and entertainment. We felt us very velcomed by the owner and had a great stay. Go there and experience yourself

What a pleasant surprise, a tropical oasis with a real homey feeling. I immediately felt like one of the family. The apartment was nice with air conditioning, cable TV, and a fully equipped kitchen. A private deck overlooked the swimming pool. The landscaping that surrounded the apartments and the pool was very tropical.The shops and beach were within easy walking distance.
After traveling for several weeks it was a pleasure to be able to hangout around the pool and fix my own meals for a change. I was sad when I had to leave. I will defiantly come back again.

We have stayed in this beautiful place for 3 months and enjoyed it very much:-) Apartments are spacious, equiped with all necesary stuff, bathroom with shower; kitchen facilities, so cooking is not a problem. There is also a washing mashine available if you need it. All apartments just meters away from swimming pool and everything in big awesome garden, where you can spot some birds, lizards and buterflies. The owners are very nice people, excellent hosts and they will make sure everything is working properly. It's typical ticos neighborhood, safe and very close to town (5 minutes by car and around 15 minutes walking - 20 minutes to the beach). From our experience it is safe to walk - we did it almost every day:-) There are 2 supermarkets 10 minutes walking from here open every day. If you like spending evenings in bars/restaurants there is quite few to choose from in town. Thank you Casa Lora - we hope to see you again!
