Overall good experience, but beware of the nagging neighbor

  • 3 of 5

I have been renting the Margarita House for several years now, and the house was in good shape as always and everything worked fine. However, there is a new permanent resident that just built a house next to the Margarita house to the North. Unfortunately, many locals who live in vacation spots feel like tourists infringe on their preferred way of life. I believe this is the case here.

We have never received a complaint in all the years we have been renting the Margarita House. In fact, before we leave, we always pick up trash that we did not produce, in the surrounding dunes. Therefore, we leave the place better off than how we found it. But this year the new neighbor filed a complaint against us with security stating that we were driving around in the dunes. Security came to the house and quickly dismissed their claim, but the atmosphere had now already been altered. In fact these new neighbors were even taking a pictures of my family. Very creepy.

I am not sure what this new resident was expecting when purchasing next to 4 rental properties, but I think they may have been better off buying somewhere else. I feel this scenario will play out over and over with future visitors to the Margarita House.

Best vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, well equipped, on the water. Suitable for 2-3 families with children. Gourmet kitchen. Owners are nice and responsive. Property manager is very helpful. The gate guards will happily supply you with fresh fish, but bring all other groceries including water and ice. Even the dolphins come to visit. Thank you for a terrific vacation!

My family and I really really loved staying here. The house is beautiful, clean, and very well equipped with things for us to use while we were there. There were very few people on the beach which made it so nice and peaceful. The view of the stars at night is something else, it's out of this world beautiful! We lost track of how many shooting stars we saw! We would definitely come back and vacation here again.

The Whole Package!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many, many homes on the beaches south of Rocky Point, but this is now our new favorite!! A quiet beach, every possible amenity, helpful caretaker, beautiful decor, and a different balcony for each sunset happy hour. The drive from Rocky Point is rather nice as you drive by asparagus fields and olive orchards. As stated in previous reviews, the photos don't do the house justice. Dan was very helpful and the directions and information provided ahead of time were accurate. Adolpho is friendly and knowledgeable. From kites and kayaks, to board games and beach towels, the house is fully stocked. We are looking forward to returning!
