My husband and I stayed at this casita May 21st - May 28th and had a wonderful stay. I cannot tell you how hard it was to leave.

The casita is so nicely appointed and had everything we needed/wanted for our stay. Everything is well-maintained, very clean, and the grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed the pool daily during our stay. We found such great deals at area restaurants that we really didn't cook, but would have had everything we needed if necessary.

One of the best things about our trip was meeting Eric and Marilyn, the owners of the property. We were researching the area as a potential retirement site and they provided a wealth of knowledge. We had such a good time and met such nice people in the area that we are 'moving up' our timeline for relocating to Mexico.

My wife & I had the pleasure of staying in Chelem in the company of our wonderful hosts! Not only were they incredibly friendly and accommodating but provided us with a wealth of knowledge of the area. The room was immaculate and very comfortable, with air conditioning and fans for those warm nights. Would highly recommend without any hesitation and look forward to staying with them next time we are in Chelem!

Not enough superlatives for this lovely and private guest house . The hosts, Eric and Marilyn, are genuinely caring people who anticipate guest comfort and we're always available to help with local knowledge.

Amazing place with all the amenties needed. We have been going to Mexico for 7 years now and this was by far the most comfortable place we have ever rented. It is approx 4 mexican blocks to the Gulf of Mexico and a km to walk into town. Marilyn and Eric were extremely gracious and helped with a ton of information necessary while we were looking at purchasing a property. Thanks guys!

We loved the casita we rented from Eric and Marilyn. They were amazing hosts and have become friends we will see next time we are there. The casita is fully self contained and beautifully decorated. Fantastic yard and lounging area. We didnt need to purchase a thing to feel totally at home. We would recommend this for a relaxing stay with a pool onsite. The beach, Gulf of Mexico is approximately 4 Mexican blocks away and the town of Chelem is approximately 1 km away.

“It was amazing accommodations & an adventure.”
Reviewed November 15, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

It has been a wonderful vacation. We have had so many interesting experiences. The accommodations have been excellent. The apartment was very clean & well supplied with everything needed to provide a comfortable stay. Once in the area of the home , it feels like an oasis. The weather never disappoints.
