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.

Owner's Response: Sara, The casita's amenities are accurately stated in the property description. We pride ourselves in providing a quiet, relaxing environment versus the "action" resorts on Sandy Beach which cost 2-3 times more. Elizabeth
