“House provided all it promised!”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The view and the whales are all true! We were a family of 3 generations staying over the Christmas period. With three couples each having their own private quarters and bathrooms, it enabled a comfortable 9 day stay. The two 12 year old granddaughters stayed in the casita and felt very grown up. The older granddaughter hoped to sleep on a blow up bed in the palapa outdoors. While it may have worked, she found it too light with the full moon and neighbours lighting. She put the mattress on top of the pull out couch and slept in the living room. It was easy to then dismantle the bed for the day and provided a very comfortable bed. I think the house works best with 8 people max.
We basically lived outside. Since the hurricane, the owner rebuilt the palapa and railing ( as well as windows of course) and provided new deck furniture. There was an issue when we arrived with the heat for the pool. They were waiting for the delivery of a new large propane tank and were fearful of us using too much fuel for the pool that we ran out of propane to use the stove or dryer. We were somewhat doubtful that it would all get done over Christmas as it was a big job. However, with Marty's coordination it all happened as promised and we had a hot tub. The ocean this year is so warm, we spent more time there than in the pool, but it was nice to have an evening hot tub with the full moon.

The Mega grocery is less than 10 minutes away and has everything. We did all our meals in after the first night, which we had fun with. We even perfected the perfect marguerita! Some of the appliances are a bit dated for the quality of the house, but after the expense of repairing the hurricane damage, it is understandable. When we were short of some items, Marty provided them. We did employ the housekeeper one day during the time which worked well. We felt very pampered with the kind gate guards, the gardeners, the pool maintenance person and the housekeeper.
We did go up to La Paz one day to swim with the whale sharks which is highly recommended. You do require a car to stay in that area. We rented from Alamo, and the others used National and Cactus with no problem. Once you get over the fact that you need all the insurance and it will cost more than the car, then all is good. We found the Mexican people we met with very helpful and kind. The beach below the house is beautiful, and even over Christmas we often had it to ourselves.
We highly recommend this house to families or a group of close friends. it is reasonably priced compared to others in the area.
