"Wow! Truly paradise. This is the best..the view..awesome. We loved the condo. We cooked often, the kitchen was full of many kitchen cooking needs. Nice places to eat out if you don't want to cook, walkable. Golf cart is necessary. Clean, fresh and fun! We will return."Guest: Bridget S.

"The Palm House is an amazing house located in the most gorgeous beach with a reef just off shore. The house is beautifully appointed, decorated and layed out in the most convenient way. Each bedroom is very large and has a beautiful and large private bath. The living area easily and comfortably held the 6 of us and more, if needed. Being an open concept living area we could relax, use the kitchen and dining area while enjoying each other. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed to cook and we used the outside grill located under gorgeous palm trees overlooking the beach and aquamarine water. The large dining table, overlooking the pool and beach, was the perfect place to enjoy a few fabulously fresh ethnic meals that a wonderful local chef and her daughter prepared for us. Palm trees, white sand beaches, lush grass and landscaping add another element which makes Palm House a top property. We spent many hours relaxing, reading, laughing, enjoying Pina Coladas by the pool using the most comfortable pool furniture. The house is also equipped with bikes and kayaks which add to the fun. To make the week more perfect are the property managers and house keeping staff which are more than eager to make the vacation unforgettable. The house is perfectly managed, decorated, and maintained inside and out. The town is a fun and relaxed where we found the people to be very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed several restaurants with great food. Using our golf cart, we explored the island and town. We snorkeled a few days seeing a rich variety of marine life, bone fished, and had catamaran adventure including the most fabulous beach picnic with totally fresh seafood. Our family had the most fun week in a gorgeous property in a location which is like paradise. Thanks so much to the owners for providing a perfect home."Guest: PJTraveler Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 25, 2014View listing
"Paula nd Brad, Thank you so much for all your help with the trip! You are the greatest people and easy to work with for renting a house in San Pedro. All your advice made the trip even better!! We absolutely loved your wonderful home, Casa Amarillo in San Pedro. Our family of 4 had plenty of room and the pool and dock were amazing. The trip went so smooth and we were picked up at water taxi dock by your staff and they already had our golf cart waiting in parking lot! On way home, we took Tropic Air and it was so easy and a beautiful scenic trip from the air. (Even with our entire luggage…LOL) My husband now considers himself a fisherman. He was at the dock first thing every morning and even had Lone Star Grill cook his fish for him!! (Great restaurant near the house) We were able to go right from the dock on a snorkeling tour and saw incredible fish, sharks and sea rays in Shark Alley. It was so close to the house and made it a breeze to go on tours from the dock. Loved that the house was south of bridge! The golf cart rides were great adventures and still miss going around town and seeing all the sights. So Much to do in San Pedro and many places to visit!! I snorkeled every day from the dock and relaxed and read my book. VERY relaxing and perfect house for family of 4 and we only used the bottom half of the house. The best food was made by Marfa!! We had Marfa fix us lobster dinner one night and her lobster fritters were amazing (calamari too)!! She fixed our meals at least 3 times and wished I had done it more! We loved going in town on the golf cart and even went to the Palapa Bar north of the bridge and had the best time drinking in the water with a bunch of great friends we met while we were there. Cruz was awesome and played volleyball with the boys and also prepared our fire so we were able to cook s'mores and stare at the beautiful stars by the ocean! It was our favorite vacation by far and the house made it the best! I looked at other houses in San Pedro and still love Casa Amarillo the best as the ac worked great and pool, dock and bar was awesome! House was always kept up and we only wish we could have stayed another week! I will call you soon as need to book for next year! PS: Even "Cookie", the best watch-dog ever, made us feel welcome!! Thanks for everything!! The Boggess Family Southlake TX"Guest: The Boggess Family Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 29, 2014View listing
