"This is the second time in this area, and we spent six months in this house. Thank you so much for agreeing to rent to us long term. The owners take great pride in the house and it shows. It is not just a house but a home. It was a delight to be there. This property is very well maintained and equipped. All the amenities were there, in good shape and of good quality. The beds and all furniture were very comfortable. The kitchen is a good size and having a pantry was wonderful. It was so nice to have the space to store our groceries. It was a pleasure to have air conditioning, and most especially, good air conditioners, not just window shakers. Having a washing machine was so convenient. The owners were very good about addressing any problems we encountered.
The house is situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean. We never got tired of the view. The migratory path of the whales runs right in front of the house and it was awesome to see them, their babies and the Dolphins so close and personal.
The housekeeper, Manuela, was a great asset. She speaks English and was invaluable to us in many ways. Mariano is the gatekeeper/security/maintenance person. He takes his job seriously, and we always felt completely safe. He took over pool duties the end of January, and always had the pool pristine for our use. It was lovely!
Puerto Angel is a little fishing village, quiet and peaceful. The local people are what brought us back to the area a second time. They are honest, humble, hard working. Playa Panteon was a lovely place to swim and snorkel. All the beaches/villages in the area are lovely and each had their own flavour. Zipolite was a great place for the sunset and people watching. It also sports some good restaurants. San Augustinillo was our favorite place for swimming. Mazunte had a great vibe and some good shopping. We walked everywhere we could, and used local transportation (collectivo trucks and cabs, regular cabs, and busses for greater distances) and never had a problem.
Again, our thanks to the owners for allowing us to share their home. It was truly a joy to be there."
