About MONICA RIVERA RIO ROCHA
I´m from Mexico City, born in 1960, grew up in Mexico city until graduated as a Graphic Designer in the Universidad Anahuac Mexico City. Then I went to study Photography in Rome Italy where I lived for 11 years, got married to an Italian Photographer and came back to Mexico where we had a daughter (Mónica) and a son(Fulvio). CASA DE DON PEPE was built by my father, Pepe. My brothers and sisters (we are 6, 3 boys and 3 girls) now own the Villa. It´s our private paradise. The place where we grew, where we spent all our holidays with cousins, grandparents, and friends, where we learned to be a family and where we learned to respect and to love nature. We still spend all the free days we get with our mother, uncles and aunts, brothers and sisters and of course all the grandchildren! It´s our heavenly nest of love.
MONICA RIVERA RIO ROCHA purchased this Villa in 1968
Why MONICA RIVERA RIO ROCHA chose Barra de Potosí
In 1968 our parents wanted to take us for a vacation, and someone lent house near the beach of Playa Blanca, so there we went. When we got there, we found that it was near the beach (a half an hour walk under the sun) a place where there was not a shadow or the opportunity to play in the water because the waves were very big. The keeper of that place offered to bring us (the whole family) to a kids friendly beach, and so they gave us a ride in a tractor to the Barra (place where the lagoon meets with the ocean). It was paradise! We could play in the sea and the place was just amazing. So my father being an architect decided to by an acre of land and build a house. With the considered remodulation is now CASA DE DON PEPE. We love to because it´s still in the heart of nature, calm and save; the perfect place to meditate, relax or live together with your beloved ones.

Beautiful Property, wonderful staff
We rented Casa de Don Pepe for Christmas to house 18 people including 2 great-grandmas and 2 babies. The grounds are beautiful, well kept, and clean. The pool was super clean with a large shallow area where the babies could play. The beach was also very clean, not crowded, but lively. The staff of 6 were amazing, so willing to accommodate special needs, help with the babies, keeping us stocked in ice and last but not least making the best meals imaginable. We had ceviche, chicken mole, fish vera cruz, eggs mexicana and the list goes on and on.
The staff only speaks Spanish so I was glad I had some spanish language skills, however, Monica was readily available in the event we needed some clarification. The rooms are large, clean, with multiple beds in each room. There is no air-conditioning but there are ceiling mounted fans in all the rooms and box fans available. At no fault of the property the mosquitoes were intense, especially at dusk, be sure to bring bug spray. All in all a wonderful property outside the super touresty beaches in Ixtapa.
We are really glad you had such a wonderful time in our home. We hope you come back soon!
