Guestbook comments from the owner

We had never been to Rocky Point before. We found the casita to be clean, cozy and very nice in a quiet, safe community. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything. The bedroom and living room were very comfortable. The mattress in the bedroom was wonderful! We loved your books on Mexican history, nature and culture. Our dogs played safely in your fenced in yard. The neighbors were helpful.

Very comfy, convenient, walk to beach. WELL STOCKED kitchen with all the essentials from spices to staples. Very private and quiet. Great staff. Didn't want to leave and ready to go back all in same day! Not a lot of pet friendly places. This one was and had nice yard and shady porch with fans for them to lounge on. They liked the cool tile floors indoors.

Beautiful getaway casita

  • 5 of 5

This charming casita felt like a home away from home. When we travel we like to have the amenities of home and this place was perfect. The patio was perfect for morning coffee and enjoying the local paper. Close to shops and restaurants, but still in a quiet neighborhood. Loved our stay!

Great vacation in a sweet casita!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came down for a quick spring break trip with our daughter and her best friend ( in their late teens). The casita was perfect for us. The girls had their area, separate from ours. The casita had everything we needed and we were close enough to walk to the beach in no time. We were within a few minutes drive of the Malecon, for fun, and Sams club, for supplies. Elizabeth made sure that everything we needed was there. The home is clean and comfy. The area feels super safe. I'm certain we were as safe, if not safer, than walking around in our Las Vegas neighborhood. If you are hesitant to visit Rocky Point due to concerns about driving into Mexico, or feeling unsafe, don't be. You will love it. Relaxing on the beach, I noticed families having fun, cell phones abandoned. It was great.
