  • Beautiful authentic place

    "We stayed here with our kids (1 and 3 yrs) and loved it. The architecture and lay out of the palapa is well designed, earthy and tasteful. Nice ocean view from the shower, with great pressure. The owner provided a travel cot for the baby and the toddler slept on the sofa cushions. The outdoor kitchen has everything including a built in grill. Great for eating in, since restaurants here can have long waits for kids. The house has no stairs and only smaller steps, so very practical with little ones. The yard is fully fenced and was safe for the kids to play in. They just played in the coarse sand with their beach toys all the time. We loved the beautiful cactuses, flowers and birds. One block down to the beach, with a palapa that provides shade for the little ones, a self launch set up and kayaks. Snorkel gear and bikes also available. Fun dirt roads to bike, short ride to the supermarket and fresh fish store too. Just a short car ride away from restaurants. Wonderful neighborhood of local people that you meet on the beach every day, yet still pretty quiet on the water kitesurfing. One of the few spots without rocks in your launch area. Owner Jorge was responding to email questions very quickly and was very helpful when I Skype called him before and after booking. He was also very helpful with great tips during our stay. Overall wonderful relaxing experience."

  • slice of paradise!

    "We loved staying at Casa Blanca! La Ventana/El Sargento holds a special place in our hearts and Casa Blanca was the icing on the cake! We had four adults and 2 kids in our group and the house accommodated us perfectly. My husband and I loved waking up to the sunrise over the ocean every morning through the large picture windows in the master bedroom (it was always a spectacular show.) The house was well equipped with everything we needed and felt luxurious. We loved using the kayaks and snorkel gear (the snorkeling right in front of the house was awesome!) The beach felt like our own. The kiteboarders in our group launched and landed straight from the backyard. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the stunning views on the patio or under the palapa. Even when you are inside, you feel like you're outside with all of the huge windows and large sliding doors. The house is in a great location- close to Oscaritos Market and close to the end of El Sargento where the kiteboarders start their "down winder" runs. (Although everything is close in this town- just a few minutes by car.) We rented bikes a couple of times (from Captain Kirks) and found a really great trail (singletrack!) in riding distance from the house. We rented Stand Up Paddle boards one morning from Palapas Ventana after a delicious breakfast from their restaurant. Our two kids (3 1/2 and 7 months) were happy as can be on our vacation. They must have picked up on our relaxed and happy vibe. We cooked/bbq'd a few meals and made daily gaucamole- the kitchen had all of the basics. However, the local cuisine is unbelievably good so we dined out mostly (Mariscos El Cone was our favorite... Camarones ala Diabla and ceviche with Ahi... Mmmmm!) We also loved the scene at Baja Joes in the early evenings after the guys would finish kiteboarding. Our daughter met lots of other kids their to play with and we adults loved the margaritas. We loved getting fresh made Empanadas every morning from Oscaritos and stopped in every afternoon for the most delicious ice cream bars in the world. Gosh, I could go on and on about how wonderful our week was. Yeta and Francisco were a phone call away if we needed anything, but gave us our privacy. The grounds were maintained beautifully. My only complaint was that we didn't stay long enough! Can't wait to return to La Ventana. We would rent this house again in a heartbeat! Thank you Brent for being so easy to work with and providing such a lovely experience!"

  • Perfection

    "I had two and half precious weeks alone, working, watching for wind, enjoying the birds and the moonrise and the sunrise, and loving the palette of this simple, clever, beautiful desert house where everything felt right - truly a privilege."

  • If you want to stay ON the beach, that's only one reason to choose Casa Ornelas

    "We just returned from a week in the Casita. The highlight of the trip was Carol and Willie. A close second was the location and all the details that went into building the casita. It's perfectly situated for wind or no wind. There is plenty or nothing to do, whichever you choose. I just hope there is room for us when we try to come again."
