A gem!

  • 5 of 5

Just lovely! The casita is absolutely charming, just as pictured but actually more spacious than the photos show. Everything is in full working order, everything is immaculate. It's nice and bright, and the view from the kitchen window makes doing the dishes almost a pleasure.

Mary is the perfect hostess, available at a moment's notice to help, but never intrusive (her house and the casita are on the same property, but are entirely private from each other).

Walking into Baños would be possible, but we never did since the blue bus (30 cents) is frequent, or one of the taxis passing by ALL the time costs $1.25 to anywhere in town. The same bus in the opposite direction (towards Puyo) goes to waterfalls including the Pailón del Diablo, ziplines, cable cars, etc.

We would recommend the Casita Ohana without reservation.

Wonderful Casita!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mary’s casita for a month while exploring Baños and the surrounding area. The house was beautiful and in a wonderful, quiet location. It was a perfect place to set out from for area adventures and exploration. We found it to be a pleasant walk to the town center but buses and taxis also came by constantly. The Refugio Spa, only a block away, was a great place to enjoy the pools, mud baths and Baños de cajón. Mary was the perfect host and we hope to return to Baños and her casita again.

Lovely, comfortable, convenient casita

  • 5 of 5

Mary is the perfect (and charming) host. Everything is just as pictured - this is a well-constructed, modern yet charming guest house. Beds are comfortable, hot water is hot, kitchen is equipped with everything you'd need for a few nights stay - or for a month! Television has CNN (we've been watching Hurricane Irma and worrying about our folks and friends in Florida ;-( . It's just a few steps to a beautiful hike up the hill where there's a lovely spa and an awesome view of Tungurahua. We hope to return to Baños, and if we do, we'll return to Mary's casita.
