Casa Takalua is a cozy, rustic, budget-friendly overwater cottage with a vintage-tropical vibe designed to allow guests to have their own private space while still being immersed in a vibrant local community. It's located over the water in front of a local family's home just a 2-minute walk from The Sea Monkey restaurant and hotel. The cottage has its own private entrance, a comfy queen-sized four-poster bed with mosquito net, industrial ceiling fan, plenty of shelves for your stuff, and a huge private deck out front where you can watch the boats and cayucos go by, spot doplhins and rays, and see local kids playing in the water. The private bathroom has a hot-water shower, plenty of towels, and artisanal soap made by Punta Coco Soaps from local coconut oil.

Breakfast for two and all of the services that come along with a stay at The Sea Monkey are included. We are always available at the restaurant just 40 meters away to get you a water taxi, help plan tours, or provide recommendations for places to eat, drink, snorkel, hike, surf, etc.

*Special note: on Saturdays and Sundays, the local family who live behind the cottage hosts a ladies' card club, often with music. The party always ends by 8 PM, so you won't have to worry about noise at night, but it can get pretty festive in the daytime. You're welcome to join, but be warned: they're serious card players!
