A fantastic property in a quaint, tranquil, authentic Mexican town. We lived here for 5 months and enjoyed everyday. The home is a great design with incredible views. The flora and fauna were awe-inspiring. You can feel the seclusion of the private compound that makes up this 4 structure property. Our favorite retreat was the lower palapa with hammock, table and chairs, fan and water fountain. Everything you need is walking distance or water taxi ride away. The housekeeper and gardener are great people and very helpful We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would consider buying in the immediate area someday

Recommended for: Sightseeing, tourists without a car, girls getaway, families with young children, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with teenagers.
We were blessed with a wonderful vacation at "Casablanca." From the minute we stepped through the main door and were greeted by the most amazing view and gardens, we knew we had picked the perfect getaway location. The accommodations were very comfortable and it was fun to discover new colorful rooms with beautiful things to look at inside and out. The hardest part of the trip was deciding on which palapa or patio we would sit to enjoy our cocktails and meals. Our time flew by as there are so many places to visit just a few minutes away, and the food everywhere was outstanding and inexpensive. John and Vicki have done a marvelous job in making this a special home away from home. Thanks guys!
