Great location, comfy bed, nice garden area!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Villa De Cerritos many times. We love the complex. And this unit is the best deal we have found. It's a great unit. Newly built, super clean and nice outdoor area. The kitchen is much bigger than the other studio units we have stayed in and the outdoor yard area is much bigger, too. There is a new bed that is so comfortable. The outdoor palapa dining area is a great spot to chill in the afternoon. We loved the decor and furniture. Tracy was great. She answered all of our questions quickly. The price cannot be beat in the Villa De Cerritos complex. We are already planning our next stay. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

Cute mouse wrong house

  • 3 of 5

My girlfriend and I did a 10 day tour to BCS. We were excited to stay in Pescadero, as its very close to Cerritos beach and Todos Santos - A great location!!

We arrived and checked in at the reception - however this room we had booked and paid for was occupied and apparently double booked. After about an hour of trying to get ahold of the VRBO host (with no response until the next morning) - the very accommodating receptionist put us in their extra room and asked us to return in the morning. We were checked into the proper room (which you are thinking about booking here on VRBO) in the morning.

Once we were put in the "Margarita Casita", we were greeted with a surprise in the middle of the night. Behind the couch lives a cute mouse who we'd nicknamed Jerry. He somehow managed to steal approximately 15 tortilla chips throughout the night and consumed them noisily.

Long story short - the pull out couch is not comfortable, there is a mouse living there (if that bothers you), Tracy is tricky to get ahold of and did not refund us for our night spent as hobos; however, the location is pristine. Try the pizza by the pool!

Owner's Response: Hi Ashkon! Thanks again for your stay! I appreciate your review as this gives me a chance to address the issues that you had during your stay. You mention that I was hard to get a hold of during your stay. I do know that you had contacted me late at night the night that you checked in because the front desk could not find your reservation. Due to a severe rainstorm, our power had gone out at our house and we didn't have internet until the next morning. As soon as I received your message in the morning I contacted you and the front desk. The front desk told me that their had been a glich in their system and they had lost your reservation. They told me that they had put you in another nice unit for the night and refunded you that night's stay due to their error. So I'm confused as to why you wanted me to refund you for the night's stay as well? You wanted to be double refunded? I am deeply sorry for the mistake but don;t think that you should be double refunded as you were put up in a really nice unit for the night and were given a refund for the night as well. Regarding the pull-out sofa, you were not the first guest to tell us that it was uncomfortable. So a couple weeks ago we replaced it with a new queen sized bed with really comfortable memory foam mattress and 12 built-in drawers for storage. We have also added a very comfortable twin-sized pull-out sofa chair for extra guests. The unit was given a deep cleaning when we re-furnished it and we found no trace of your mouse that you mention. But, of course, sometimes critters find their way into homes in the desert. If you were to have made the staff at the front desk away of this they would have taken care of it immediately. I urge all of my guests to let me know immediately if they have any issues like this that can be easily taken care of during their stay. Thanks again for your stay. If you choose to come back, I'm sure you will be pleased with the comfortable new bed, large twin-sized sofa chair and the many drawers for storage. We are always looking for ways to improve our spaces for guests and take all of our guests suggestions for improvement to heart. Thanks!

Great studio with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a great stay in this studio villa. We love the villa de cerrtios complex and have been coming to cerritos for years. This was the best bargian we have found in the complex so far. It's new and clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We loved the yard area. We spent a lot of time in the hammock and outdoor dining area. It was close walking distance to the beach. Great affordable stay at close to the beach. We will be back!

Loved this Garden Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect space for us! We are a couple who was traveling to surf. We wanted a space to crash our heads at night as well as an outdoor space to chill in during the day when we were't surfing. Margarita Casita was perfect for us! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals at home (although we also enjoyed all the local restaurants). And the outdoor garden area with the dining table and hammock was fabulous for relaxing after a surf session. It had everything you need for a nice, affordable stay in Cerritos. We will be back!

Perfect Place for Two!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time staying in this Studio in Cerritos Beach. It was perfect for just two people. The studio was very clean and exactly what we had expected from the pictures and ample space when the bed is turned into a sofa again. Having the pool was also a nice bonus! Would definitely recommend the pizza at the pool as well. They were only open in the evening but great, fresh, made to order pizza.

We walked to the beach everyday during our stay. Also had a great experience with surf lessons on the beach. We met Edgar and Edgar who were reasonably priced, patient and incredibly helpful even with restaurant recommendations. We've taken lessons in the U.S. and this was by far a better experience. Would highly suggest asking for them on the beach if you are interested...they are independent so you would have to ask around.

The only issue we had was figuring out how to light the oven, but with a quick search on youtube we figured it out. Front desk probably would have been able to help but we easily figured it out on our own. We would definitely consider staying here again if we come back!
