Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit and had an amazing time. The waves were over-head the whole trip and the most people out was 4. The Villa is the perfect place for families as well. My wife and 9 y/o daughter enjoyed the pool and tennis courts.

Such a wonderful place to stay! Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful ocean front view, great surfing.

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Randy and Ann's townhome. It has all the amenities needed and is easy to access from the border. This is our 3rd time staying at their place. We have stayed at a few other condos in Club Marena and also nearby. But none of them compare to theirs.

I highly recommend this one.

A Wonderfull Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to sneak away for a mini-vacation and this was the perfect place. The Villa is astounding and ready for anything you could need or want. We were not there to surf, but that was fine! We simply enjoyed cracking open the windows and taking in the sights and sounds of the beautiful beachfront property. Make sure to take some time and walk around the local shops and get into the city. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: You don't need to be a surfer to enjoy ocean front breezes and the sound of the waves as they lull every ounce of tension out of your body and mind. So glad you folks enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks for the great review. Anna & Randy

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! It was my first time down surfing there and staying anywhere near there. The Villa was exactly like it was described and all the people that we met were all very nice. The waves were fun and the security was great! All of the guards were really cool and the jacuzzi was a life saver after surfing three times a day.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and the waves were great! The waves usually are great with minimal number of surfers to have to share a break with, makes great surfing. Our villa just makes you want to stay, forever.
