“Fantastic beach house”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed at 'La Cassita' on the grounds of La Casa do Curia.
It was an excellent stay & we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay.
The owner Bernardo was a pleasure to email with & having met him, a great guy who really loves this part of Ecuador.
Being on the coast was fantastic, warm days by the beach, followed by evenings at nearby towns meeting the locals.
The house is perfect for couples, with a comfy bed, plenty of lounge space, great wifi, plenty of cable tv channels & an excellent hammock on the deck.
We had a blast & must mention the lovely local dogs who stay on the property: we will miss them.
Overall would love to go back again & highly recommended

“The best trip back home”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had an amazing time in La Casa de Curia. This is a beautiful house, fully equipped with amazing views and gardens.
I'm from Ecuador and I didn't know this paradise existed. My children loved it and we will back for sure.

“Very Pleasant!”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed in La Casita for 4 nights. La Casita is on a property with 3 other houses, one for rent (la Casa de Curia) and 2 private ones.
Its location is on a woody hill close to the beach, near the small and quiet town of La Curia, but also close to more touristy places like Olon and Montanita, was perfect for us, so tranquil and peaceful!

La Casita is very comfortable and clean, and has everything you will need for a short or long stay, like a very well equipped kitchen, WiFi, cable television, a comfortable bed, modern bathroom and a deck with stunning views on the ocean.
Don't confuse La Casa de Curia with next door Villa la Curia, these are different properties...

La Casita is perfect for just a couple, or a small family with one or two (smaller) children.
Don Julio and Bernardo were both on the property during our stay and are both extremely friendly and attentive, like the lady caretaker.
The beach is a short walk down the hill, however like we were with our 10 month old baby, we always took our car to go to the beach.
The beach is very quiet and clean, and great for long walks.
We cooked our breakfast and dinner at the Casita and had lunch in the surrounding areas: Olon, Montanita, but if you have a car you could also easily go north to Ayampe or Puerto Lopez.

“Comfortable House, Great Location, Friendly Owner”

We loved our stay at Casa de Curia, we drove during the night so it was a little difficult to find but once we got there we didn't want to leave. Mr. Julio was very friendly, informative and helpful he made our stay so enjoyable. The private path to the beach is kept clean and we only had to walk for three minutes to find the very well kept and clean beach. I recommend anybody traveling with kids to stay here. Montanita is just ten minutes away and Olon is just a five minute away drive. Fresh sea food is found at San Pablo's market. We most definitely will be back.
