Had an authentic stay at this spot...excellent view overlooking the bay and the private Garcia “Playita”..stayed over for Easter week. Lots of PV locals come to enjoy the holiday! A bit loud but the wind was up so the surf was louder! If you want a busy PV scene....on the beach with loud music stay further down the beach/ the other side of the bay...tour boats arrive about 10AM and leave about 4PM....the Garcia beach is beautiful and right in front of the spot! The price is right ..it is clean, closer to town,friendly and helpful staff...and beach front! Totally enjoyed the stars, the surf and peaceful vibe! We will be back!

Stayed: March 2018, travelled as a couple

Great beach location with open casas. Basic amenities. But this year, we were stuck in the oldest casa and had multiple plumbing problems from non functional shower to water flooding the kitchen. The shower was fixed, twice (shower head failed after replacement and almost flooded the bathroom), but water coming off the roof into the kitchen was not. Coral 1 needs serious renovation which will hopefully be done soon. There were no bathroom fixtures (TP holder, towel bars, etc). Good prices but don't expect the ritz.

Room Tip: Be sure you are not in Casa Coral 1

After our first stay at Garcia Rentals, I wrote a review describing this as the best accommodation in Yelapa. Since then, we returned two more times (Christmas 2017 and 2017). I still maintain that this is the best accommodation in Yelapa (see my review March 2016 for reasons), but I wanted to write again acknowledging the outstanding service.
David Lord is the Garcias contact person for English speaking customers. I have exchanged many e-mails with him asking questions and discussing our arrival arrangements. He always replies promptly with specific answers to my queries.
Erik Garcia is in the office most days from 9 to 5. He has accommodated many request: extra blankets, a toaster, fresh towels, garbage bags, etc. An extra bed for our son was in the second bedroom when we arrived. Erik has also been very helpful with tips and recommendations for activities and restaurants in Yelapa.
I particularly wanted to comment about the outside staff: Eric, Francisco and Enrique. These guys are amazing! They met us at our water taxi with wheelbarrows to carry our luggage (cobblestone roads are brutal on suitcase wheels). They dropped off water jugs at our suite. They also maintained the exclusive beach area - a huge task. On occasion, the tide came right up over the beach, leaving debris in its wake. Eric and company were out there raking, cleaning and setting up umbrellas and beach chairs for guests every day.
Yelapa is a small town - especially when the day excursions leave in the afternoon. You start seeing staff and their families around town. I have to say that the Garcias family, including the staff, are wonderful people.
Garcias rentals is more than just a place to chill at the beach (although it works if that is all you want to do). It is a place where it is easy to interact with staff and locals - and learn more about the great people of Yelapa.

Room Tip: High is good for views of Yelapa Bay and out to see (but has many steps to the beach)

These units are definitely Mexican in style. The bedroom in walled in which is good at night. You can slide the door to let in as much ocean sound as you desire. The kitchen is sufficiently stocked except no dish drying or hand towels. The beds are firm and have no pads on and the sheets are thin. There is a blanket you will need at night but I don't know how often it is laundered but the sheet top goes down a good foot over it. All the drinkable water you need is provided and you can buy beverages from them. The rooms are cleaned every third day. To have it done more frequently costs $20. You can get fresh towels if you request them
The location and view out the open wall can't be beat. They provide beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The beach is much quieter but don't fear, the pie salesman comes on down. The beach area with all the bars is just a short stroll across the narrow river.

3rd year in a row we have been very happy with the rentals at Garcia Rentals in Yelapa. Although there are many other options in Yelapa, we think this place has the best beach access and their little section of the beach is setup for their guests exclusively. The Garcia family is wonderful and Eric, Francisco, and Enrique were awesome. Yelapa and Garcia Rentals is for the traveler that does not need the all inclusive experience. You can cook your meals while watching the ocean, have a campfire on the beach, play in the ocean and go on walks to waterfalls and through the small village.

Stayed: December 2017
