"Casa Esperanza is truly magical. The pictures just don’t do it justice. From the moment you walk in you feel like you are on vacation. The view is incredible, you can see whales breaching right from the patio while sipping your morning coffee or evening cocktail. As soon as we arrived the little ones were playing in the pool –perfect for all ages with zero entry for the little ones and enough space for the older kids & adults to swim all day. An extra bonus swim up bar so they don’t even have to get out for food or drinks. Baruch arranged a delicious Mexican meal to be cooked at the house upon arrival, had the kitchen pre-stocked for us, and massages outside at sunset with the ocean breeze and sound of crashing waves. So great that we had the chef & masseuse come back a second time during our visit. A perfect way to start our relaxing vacation before falling asleep in the heavenly beds. Everything about our visit was perfection. We specifically loved access to the Esperanza resort amenities – nearby Punta Ballena Beach Club is a short 5 min walk or golf cart ride away with breathtaking views of waves crashing on the rocks and Lands End in the background. We ventured there for morning workouts at the gym or early afternoon drinks and dinner while the kids played in the pool. We also took advantage of Las Estrellas which is a 10 min walk away. They have great daily work out classes (yoga with Blanca was a favorite), and delicious breakfast. We spent several days and relaxed by the giant pools while the kids swam and did the kids club from 11am – 1pm (incl. piñata party, stand up paddleboard, blow up waterslide & water balloon fight). At night we enjoyed roasting marshmallows back at our fire pit and had wonderful dinners out arranged by Baruch (Sunset Da Mona Lisa & El Farrallon). If you need a babysitting service, Diana of BajaBabysitting, is responsible, conscientious, and the kids loved her! And Rosie is an absolute gem – she took care of all of us by keeping the house clean & comfortable. All around this is one of the best vacations we’ve ever had and we’re ready to book our return trip."
