About John Stevens

I have owned this home for 15 years..I use to have a landscape business in Arizona...When things would become too stressful I would come to San Carlos to recharge my batteries and unwind...Its a paradise here! Its a lot smaller then Puerto Vallarta but still it's a great location for all ocean activities such as diving, kayaking, whale and dolphin watching. There's also a golf course very close, great restaurants and bars...I've also had meditation groups and yoga groups enjoy the peacefulness of the area. No matter were you stay, my wish is you enjoy this special place which is San Carlos.

John Stevens purchased this studio in 1995

Why John Stevens chose Sonora

(This property is not the place to have drunken parties) It is a place to unwind relax and get away from the grasp of the tornados that life throws are way... Its perfect for romantic get away or family time , but most of all a place to enjoy the quality of life rather then the standard of life...

What makes this studio unique

The reason I fell in love with this property is it gave me moments of not thinking of the struggles that life throws are way. Instead I find myself watching the birds catching fish or the dolphins and seals that often visit. Sometimes I get to be 9 years old again filled with curiosity as I look at what just washed ashore or I wonder were the boats are going as they pass by... We all need a mental break every now and then and I truly believe this place offers that..

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place! Safe location, incredible views, private beach in the cove. The accommodations were so unique and offered us a lush outdoor area to relax and a fun funky decor inside. It was clean, comfortable and had everything you needed as far as bedding, towels, fully equipped kitchen, and drinking water provided. John was so thoughtful! He went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience. It was my birthday when we arrived and sitting on the counter was some fresh roses, a tower of cupcakes with a birthday candle and a bottle of Lambrusco chilling on ice, with glasses and since he's an artist he even created a birthday picture for me! When we opened the fridge their was beer and sodas too! What a wonderful treat! John also had set up a fire pit on the beach for us and had kayaks for our use. We only saw John when we sought him out to ask questions about where to go in town for dinners, etc. The privacy was great, but it was good to know our host was on property if we needed him.

FYI this place is not handicapped accessible as there is stairs to get down to the casa and another set to get to the beach.

Perfect place for a romantic vacation! We will be back!

So much beauty & character

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it here. The views are breathtaking, the casita is perfect, and John is a wonderful host. He greets you, shows you the ropes, and is there should you need him, otherwise you have this "little slice of heaven" to yourself. Everywhere you look there are charming personal touches giving the entire place such character. Its super clean and you really feel right at home.

We spent 1 day taking the kayaks out and scuba diving off a nearby island, another chartering a boat and diving elsewhere. Otherwise we chilled at the casita / beach and hit up some local food (mainly JJ's which we must have gone to 3 different times in 24 hours....).

Net net we LOVED it and would highly recommend this place. We also came back in better shape than when we arrived due to the infamous stair master system :)

Thanks again John, we'll definitely be back!!

This has set the bar extremely high!

  • 5 of 5

We had friends who could not stay at the same location we were staying, so we found this last minute. After reading the other reviews, we were confident it would be suitable.

I communicated with the owner ahead of time just to let him know that they had not been to San Carlos before. He went above and beyond to make sure they had a great stay! This unit is great for week long stays, or just a weekend getaway. It is one of the few places on the caracol that has direct water access. Their comment to us was "we didn't deserve something this nice, but thank you! " John made an everlasting impression on newcomers to San Carlos, and we are grateful to have found his place!

Slice of Heaven is a San Carlos Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

For my husband and I, it's always been the little details that count. Many places in San Carlos have mismatched dishes, silverware and old pans. But Slice of Heaven surpasses this issue in every way. Not only does the kitchen provide everything you could need to impressively entertain your favorite guests, but the bed is super comfy, the towels, including beach towels, are plush, and there are lotions, a blow dryer and toiletries just in case. The little beach and ramada are peaceful and relaxing. If that wasn't enough, John really does notice the special details. I mentioned our visit was due to our anniversary, and we had a lovely bottle of chilled Lambrusco waiting for us on arrival. His family is sweet, and his eldest is willing to help with luggage if needed. A great central spot to enjoy San Carlos and its refreshing sea, sand and sun. Thank-you for a lovely destination!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

No amount of words or pictures can describe this place, even the road to get there was spectacular - winding cobblestone up the side of a mountain, with the Sea of Cortez peeking through gorgeous cliffside houses. But I will try my best to do this review justice.

When we I arrived we were greeted by John, the owner, who asked us about our drive from Tucson and if we had ever been to the area. He then took us down some steps to where we were going to be staying, but before we could make it into the room we were hit by the breathtaking view of our little cove in San Carlos Bay, right outside our front door. It was the deep blues with the mountain backdrop, the sailboats rocking in the water, the sea breeze... you have to see it for yourself. After a few minutes of disbelief, John gave us the rest of the tour and took us down to the beach where there was a giant hammock under a cabana and a fire pit in the sand, both of which we made ample use. He then showed us the room, it was was beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you could need, including some ice cold beers that we cracked immediately and some champagne for later. Finally, he showed us how to work the TV that we never used and we parted ways. John left us alone, but was always close by in case we needed anything.

Our time at the casita was incredible to say the least. The bar area was great for eating with an amazing view and relaxing in the hammock beneath the palms. We hung out on the beach mostly, taking morning swims and stargazing at night. And although it is secluded, the house is in the middle of town, which is a short drive to the bigger beaches, as well as all of the shops, restaurants and bars.

I can go on and on but like I said, words cannot do it justice. We had an amazing time and we cannot wait to book it again. It was a perfect romantic getaway. Thanks John!
