Nice quiet location with good security people willing to help
We were pleasantly surprised with all the amenities available to us. Everything you could possibly need from toiletries to cooking spices. Very quiet and safe location. Casita was decorated very nice. Felt like home away from home. I would highly recommend this VRBO !!👍🏻
Thanks Joseph for your review. I am so glad that you felt at home at our casita & appreciated its amenities, decor, quiet location & helpful 24 hour Security. I welcome you back again.
Very nice casita, located near the beach, gated housing complex, very quiet, excellent to relax.
The casita had everything that we needed to feel just like home, nice living room, great kitchen fully equipped, we had a good time and felt very secured, there’s a security guard 24/7. Couple of things that need improvement: housekeeping team needs to pay more attention to detail, casita was a bit dusty, it can really use a good cleaning. The toilet flushed but didn’t auto refill the tank. I let the guard know about this issue and he said that he will contact someone from maintenance to have it fixed, but nobody showed up to take care of the issue, so every time we use the toilet I had to refill the tank with a bucket of water so it will be ready for the next flush. We spent most of the days at the beach or in town so I didn’t mind to refill the tank. Hope they fix it so the next guests don’t have to refill the tank themselves. Overall we had a great time.
Thank you for the nice review & for staying with us. I have spoken to housekeeping about your issue. Our handyman has fixed the toilet. I only wish that I had known of these concerns during your stay so that I could have immediately addressed them.
Bueno. Magnifico. A+#1
What an experience! The casita was magnificent and the location was centrally located, quiet and secure. You could not ask for any better amenities. We especially enjoyed the outdoor grill and patio since we cooked many of our meals. The beach was clean and gorgeous at sunset. We can’t thank Elizabeth enough for sharing her casita with us for our first visit to Puerto Penasco! Gracias.
The Casita had everything we needed. Short walk to the beach. Thank you!
Thanks for your stay. The casita is a very close walk to the beach and we are glad you enjoyed that and its full amenities.
excellent and comfortable accommodations.
From security staff to neighbors and response from owners we felt secure and welcome. There were minor issues that were resolved quickly as we located a mop outside the house to wipe up some dog urine that was marked by the corner of the couch and floor. Could of had a little more drinking water in the canister upon arrival since at check in time was close to closing time for the water refill station. We turned off all power and locked up behind us upon leaving and we were content for a whole week of stay. Thanks
Thanks for your review. We will follow up on the issues you identified. We are glad you were contented with your stay.
We were very pleased with our stay. We have stayed at several Vacation Rentals over the years and this was the most well stocked of any. The AC units worked wonderful. The area was convenient and very quiet.
No complaints. We will stay again.
(Just one teeny problem.....the electric can opener didn't work)
Enjoy pristine blue skies, wonderful seafood in wide array of restaurants. Great shopping including jewelry, Talavera, clothing and art from all over Mexico .
