"Casa Zorro was a wonderful retreat, close to town (right on the edge of the southern part) where my daughter and I stayed for a week while exploring the area. It was roomy, had everything we needed, and was walking distance to everything in town. It had drinking water, which was a bonus so we did not have to buy while we were there. Any questions I had were answered right away. I appreciated the extra security (the outside locked gate, as well as the extra lock on the front door), plus the safe in the master bedroom where we were able to lock our passports and any electronics that we brought with us. I would recommend it to anyone!"

Cute, close to the beach, close to town, great price
"My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Caracola for 5 days in July. We really enjoyed ourselves! The house was simple but nice. The layout is perfect and it felt huge. We especially liked that the bedroom area with floor to ceiling glass doors that opened up to the balcony. We could hear the ocean waves all night. We also never felt hot in the house, even thought it doesn't have AC. It doesn't need AC because the ocean breeze keeps it cool. The house was clean with fresh linens and towels when we arrived. The caretaker, Thomas, was helpful. Especially when we had trouble finding the house upon arrival in the PV area. We couldn't actually SEE the ocean from our balcony because there are some trees between but this didn't bother us-just think it's worth mentioning. We rented bikes from Thomas and were able to get pretty much everywhere in town this way. The bike chains were a little rusty but some oil improved things a lot. The house is a long walk or a quick bike ride from town. It felt like the perfect distance to me. Close enough to access restaurants and shops easily but far enough to escape some of the town noise and traffic. The gardens surrounding the house were beautiful with lots of little critters and pretty flowers. I liked that the property was gated because it let us feel much safer about keeping all the windows open while we slept. My only significant complaint is that the wifi does not work very well within the house. It seems that the wifi router for the entire area is located in the other house. I could get wifi if I was out on the porch/closer to the other house but not from inside Casa Caracola. One other tip for anyone who decides to rent this property, we learned that in the PV area there is a La Caracola and this property Casa Caracola. La Caracola is more well known so you'll have to be very specific with taxi drivers/tour picks ups about the location of where you're staying or they hear Caracola and assume it's the other property. Overall, we were very satisfied! We will definitely consider this house again if we return to the area."

"We booked at the last minute and the owners were so great! The place was really awesome. Loved the whole open air concept. We had the howler monkeys hanging out all around us...it was so cool. The beds were very comfortable. Tons of wildlife all around and a really close jaunt to the beach. A little bit of a drive to town but totally worth it! We would definitely stay again!"
