My husband and I enjoyed just one night in Casa Morfo (book early, this place gets booked up quickly with good reason). This place is so amazing I don't even know where to begin. The casa is beautiful, suitable for two couples or a family, has everything one could ask for. The outside living space is fantastic with wonderful views... More

Our stay at Agua Vista was truly an incredible experience! We spent 4 nights at Casa Morfo and from the minute we arrived, it was the highlight of our vacation. Alex and Khalida were great hosts and helped us with anything we needed. We spent most of our time exploring the local area: Montezuma, the beaches, the neighboring towns, Cabo... More

Every 5-circle review of Agua Vista is right on - this place is fantastic. We stayed in Casa Morfro. The plunge pool was great for dipping after a hike or just to cool off throughout the day - we fit 4 adults in it comfortably. There is free WiFi in your casa, and if it gets spotty, just mention it... More

We spent a lovely 3nts at Agua Vista and upon or arrival we saw howlers playing in the trees. Butterflies were everywhere. The house was lovely and made for very relaxing evenings. The plunge pool was so nice after a hike or a hot day at the beach. We loved the sounds of the birds in the morning. The falls... More

Agua Vista was perfect, the house was great and it was kept very clean. The location is close enough to town that it is a quick drive to get there but far enough way that you could truly relax. We saw plenty of butterflies and monkey’s around our little house. We had looked at several places before deciding on Agua... More

Sorry it took so long to write this...life gets in the way sometimes. There's really nothing that I can say that hasn't already been said. We loved Agua Vista! Whether it was to come back after spending time in town for dinner to play cards, listen to the animals, and stream some music on our computer or to make a... More

I nearly cashed in my plane ticket and spent the rest of my life lying on Khalida and Alexander's hammock - it's that nice! Their place is quiet (well, except for the occasional howler monkey!) and secluded, with a great view of the ocean and yet is still convenient to town. They have beautiful facilities and are top-notch hosts. Don't... More

I just got back from a 10 day vacation in Agua Vista and I loved it. The houses are newly built so you can imagine how clean it is. The service was excellent, the housekeeper speaks perfectly english and spanish so it makes it easy to communicate. He also knows everyone around..that's good for deals, ideas on where to go... More

We arrived to Agua Vista after a long drive and found pure heaven: parrots, waterfalls with pristine swimming pools a 5-minute hike away, howler monkeys, hummingbirds, and a brimming lemon tree. The houses are perfect: clean, very attractively constructed and decorated, and equipped with everything we needed. The hosts, Alex and Khalida, made us feel so welcome, and gave us... More

Don't fix the roads! & don't tell everyone about it or they all might come! What an astonishingly beautiful place, this private compound, perched on the crest of a ridge, the lush jungle falling away to the sea, is. Each private Cabana is a hand-hewn gem of tile and wavy grained wood, every table , door, counter, lintel & lamp,... More
