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.

Perfect, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay has always been wonderful, fun and well, perfect! We love that it is on a hill, at the end of the street where we have a nice view of the surrounding area. The casita is perfect for us as we have a large dog that loves to sleep on the outside deck day and night as it is covered; with the breeze off the ocean makes it perfect for her needs. We also enjoy the deck, playing cards and games in the evenings with the lighted fans to keep the air moving if there is no ocean breeze. Security 24 hours a day (English speaking guards) and casita completely fenced with parking inside the fenced in area - is great. We know that the casita will be clean and completely furnished when we arrive; all we need is our tooth brush and

we're set for a super, comfortable, stay.

Great location to base our first time exploring RP

  • 5 of 5

This casita has plenty of room for a couple or a small family. We could walk the two blocks to the beach and it was convenient for exploring the whole area around Puerto Peñasco. Elizabeth was more than helpful in arranging great alternate accommodations at no cost to us when a misunderstanding resulted in the casita not being available our first night. Things went very smoothly from there. I especially liked sitting out on the shaded patio, just reading & relaxing. We very much enjoyed our stay at Elizabeth’s and will book it again soon.

Beautiful as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This Casita was everything it was advertised to be. Clean, quiet, and close to the beach! The accompanying directions on how to get there, where to go in Rocky Point when we arrived, and instructions on how to operate everything in the Casita was detailed and very helpful. We plan on staying here again soon!
