My husband and I stayed at La Casa Verde for 5 wonderful nights. The owners of the property, Doug and Rebecca couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
We had a very comfortable king bedded room with a stunning view of the river. We were a bit initially concerned about the distance to town, but our fears were unfounded. The taxi ride was cheap ($1.50) and Doug was always on hand to call one up for you . Rebecca would have called one also, but she was probably busy baking her wonderful brownies!
We did eat dinner in town a couple of nights, but there were a variety of homemade frozen foods you could heat up and voila, a reason to have a lazy night in.
Although they don't offer laundry service, Doug was able to tell us exactly where the best one in town was. Even if one couldn't find it, there was laundry service on practically every other block so one would have to be a real blockhead not to find one:)
Another review I had read expressed concern over no railings on the stairs. The couple does have a 4 year old child who regularly uses the stairs and I suppose if you were "helicopter" parents, you could have concerns. However, the monkey bars in most playgrounds are far more dangerous than these stairs. I would have no concerns recommending this place for families with children.
I would recommend a 4 or 5 night in Banos, it's great and this is a wonderful place to stay!
