Frequently Asked Questions

What time is check in?


2:00pm. However, we are flexible. Please ask to see if your casita will be ready earlier.




Can I bring pets?


Depends. Please ask.




Is there a maximum number of people?


All casitas are comfortable for couples. If you are traveling with a child, we may be able to accommodate. Please ask.




Do I need to worry about bugs?


The casitas are entirely screened and insects have not been a problem inside the casitas. Mosquitoes can appear at dawn and dusk in the garden and open areas like Yoga Pavilion. We recommend that you bring your favorite insect repellent for those times.




What about security?


The Bali Rica property is gated. The owners live on the property and have two very well-behaved pets who act as watch dogs. The casitas have in-room safes.




Do you offer discounts for longer stays?


Yes, there is a nightly rate and discounts for weekly or longer stays.




Do the casitas have air conditioning?


No. However, each casita has numerous, effective ceiling fans and are well-shaded and breezy.




Do the casitas have televisions?


No. However, the nature program unfolding just outside your windows will keep you entertained for days.




What’s included in the kitchens?


The kitchens in both casitas come fully loaded with a full size refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, blender, gas counter top burners, microwave oven, pots and pans, cutting board and knives, cutlery, can opener, wine opener, glasses, mugs and dishes. The Bali House also has a toaster. The village of Ojochal also has two great bakeries, a good butcher shop, a weekly farmer’s market with organic products and a well-stocked supermarket.
