About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

You can read all about our fabulous Beach house by scrolling down to the "Description" heading below. VRBO has made a bunch of changes in the last year so I feel the need to tell you about those first.

VRBO added fees.

As of April, 2016 VRBO/Home away has started to charge you, the traveler, an additional 9% fee if you " book online, through their check out system." If you want to save the 9% you can send a personal check to 23515 Hatteras st Woodland HIlls CA 91367 or I can send you a Paypal request, as I had been doing prior to their payment system in 2008.

Because of this fee and other VRBO changes, the booking process has become more complicated instead of becoming more simplified. For this reason I will be going back to the old ways and actually calling or texting you to discuss the booking and payment arrangements. Or you can hit the " Send Email button" just to the right, under the yellow "Request Booking button". or call 818 577 7284.

Discounts and Rates:

The minimum for any stay is $825.00 regardless of any discounts or credits, etc.

My rate is 275.00 per night, for the first three nights and 250.00 for each night after that. Always include the number of nights in your inquiry regardless of credits, discounts, etc. The dashboard will try to calculate the correct rate but that is often wrong and I will adjust it and then respond with a phone call, text or email. Please remind me if you are a returning guest who has written a review and wants a free night. Unfortunately I can not give credit for the free night unless there are special circumstances.

In an effort to minimize my billing efforts, I am asking that you pay in full if you are taking the fourth night free. If you need to make two payments then please just ask, I completely understand. Honestly, I have never kept anyones money if they just can't make the trip.The most punitive action is to give credit for future visits and that is only if the cancellation is within 30 days of the booked date. Anything more that that gets a full cash refund for any reason of cancellation.

Returning Guest discount save $250.00

Pay for three or more nights and get one free. I offer some nice discounts but I can not combine them


For returning guests who write a review, I offer a 'pay for three or more nights, get one free' deal. That is a $250.00 value if you are a returning guest, who has written a review and is paying for three nights @ $275.00/night. Or simply put, Four nights for the price of three. This is on a retro active basis for any of my previous guests and applies to any subsequent visits of those guests. Please include the fourth night on your inquiry and please note that the dashboard will try to calculate it and will show an inflated price but I will adjust it prior to sending the payment request.


This 2000 sq ft Playa Dorada home is beautiful. It has fabulous beach sunsets and exceptionally big tide swings. The beach is full of sea shells and small sea life and Dolphin sightings are common while dining from the roof top deck.

In town, shopping is great for all who like to bargain. There is plenty of golf at the nearby Mayan Palace or in town at Sandy Beach.

The beds and linens of this home are extremely comfortable and much time and effort have been invested in the furnishings and decor. There is a hammock on the large back patio and beach toys for the kids.

Because the house has four beds and four baths it is great for a couple of families or multiple couples.

This is such a great value because we would rather offer a green, solar powered home than charge you more money. We have, however, recently tied into the Mexican power grid and use it when necessary. This will enable us to maintain the functionality of all of the ceiling fans and other electricity demands that exceed our solar usage.

Please know that the home is not air conditioned and I typically will not rent it in July or August.

I ask that you limit the number of occupants to eight because of our water management. First, water is trucked in and that is expensive. Second, all of the water goes to a septic system and it has a volume limit. Please have a conservative mindset when it comes to water usage.

I encourage all to post in my online guestbook by clicking on the review tab at the bottom of this page.

When visiting our home, please feel free to take some refrigerator magnets. The magnets have our VRBO listing number and my phone number on them so feel free to give them to your friends and family.

Friends and neighbors Discount:

For friends and neighbors who want to rent my home I simply offer two free nights per visit if the minimum of the three night rate is met.

Sorry, I can not combine the returning guest discount with the friend and neighbor discount.

Maintenance Update:

In 2011 we completed the new roof, The back patio has been coated and repainted along with the rest of the home. I will start the new patio ceiling soon but that is minor. I am still working on the screen doors. The refrigerator, stove/oven and hot water heater are all new.

In 2015 we replaced the couches, living room ceiling fans, and the rusted sinks and fixtures.

Proposed improvements, purchases and disclaimers:

Some of our screens have been torn out and I am waiting to replace the complete screen doors.

Time credit and weather disclaimer:

Like many roads in Mexico, our home is only accessible by dirt road. When it rains these roads often become impassable. Please keep abreast of weather situations prior to traveling on these dirt roads. Usually after a rain storm it is important to wait up to 24 hours for the roads to dry out. If you have booked my home and can not go for any reason, fear of rain, sickness, whatever the situation, I will issue you a full time credit. Meaning you can make up your vacation time whenever the booking calendar permits. Again, first come, first served on holidays etc. This is regardless of what my booking contract says.

If you decide to go to the home and have bad weather I will not issue a credit as I can not control the weather. It is up to the traveler to judge weather the traveling and vacation conditions will be suitable for them. If it is questionable please call me at 818 577 7284. and I can give you an update or suggestion.
