We stayed for three nights (rather than our intended six, due to flight changes) in Ana Ori (I think that was the name), not actually part of Te'ora but run by the family of Sharon's (Te'ora's owner) assistant... The cabin consisted of one large room with a kitchenette, double bed, single bed and pullout bed, plus a large shower-room. Everything was spotless, and although there was nowhere to sit inside, there was a table and chairs on the small patio outside.
The cabin is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, but it is right next to the owner's house and another cabin they let out, so it did not feel particularly private. But we were out and about most of the time, so this was not an issue. We didn't quite have a sea view, but we were only a few minutes walk from both the sea and town.
Sharon had sorted out car hire for us, which helped us see lots of the island very quickly. Her assistant, Lluvia, collected us from the airport, and also took us back when it was time to leave. Our flight out was late evening, but we were able to store our bags at Ana Ori for the day while we were out and about.
Not a luxurious stay, but a very comfortable one, and very reasonably priced (CLP45,000 or about USD$90 per night) in a place not known for budget accommodation. Sharon was very quick to reply to our emails and helpful with our queries. Ideally we would want to stay at Te'ora if we ever went back to the island, but Ana Ori is a very acceptable alternative.
