From our one-week experience, the MVH's (website) description of CASA IGUANA proved to be accurate in its entirety. If anything, Concierge Marta's potential contributions to a wonderful vacation might be understated: she can have surfboards and bicycles there on your arrival. The small house's efficient use of space is best for a family of four; or for four very familiar... More

Casa Ying Yang is an amazing dream of a vacation home. I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 days, and I must say that it was perfect. It starts with the wifi, which was spot on from the minute we walked in. Of course that is the fist thing anyone does after traveling to a place like this... More

I stayed at the Yin Yang house overlooking the ocean. Spent hours in the beautiful kitchen making huge meals for my group of 12. The jacuzzi was a godsend and the shower made me feel absolutely deific. About a hundred yards away is a beautiful beach with nice waves for boogie boarding, and there's a market just across the street.... More

Our family of 18 thoroughly enjoyed an extended stay over the New Year's Holiday! The majority of our itinerary was planned before we even arrived with the help of Marta the Concierge! She was extremely helpful before and during our stay seeing that our wishes were fulfilled! One of the highlights of our stay was the delicious food prepared in... More

We spent the first week of March at Casa Yin Yang to celebrate our daughters birthday. Her only birthday request was to return here, where she spent her birthday years before. The owner has put considerable thought and effort in keeping the house current. The recent renovations made the house better than ever. Marta the concierge helped arrange everything we... More

This was our second stay at Casa Pelicano. Our first stay was in 2008 before the renovation. We enjoyed our stay very much last time so much so that we booked the same house on our return visit. And it was perfect timing since the house had recently had an addition to accommodate our group as we invited friends to... More

We were fortunate enough to spend the last week of January at Casa Iguana. By day two our 13 and 10 year old children had inquired if the home was for sale and were scheming of ways to move in forever. Casa Iguana was perfect for us. It had all the modern conveniences and so so much more! The kids... More

Honestly this the first time I've ever been bothered to review anything - My wife and 2 sons (4 & 6) have just returned from a very special week at casa iguana. The house was perfect for us - very peaceful, tasteful, simple and well thought out. Location and privacy are superb. Marta the very cool Concierge was excellent and... More

This review is WAY overdue (sorry Stephan)! Let me start of by saying that all communications with Stephan before our travels were great! The Owner, Stephan, was easy to reach and quick to answers our questions. The reservation process was also simple and easy. We rented Casa Iguana for 12 nights. The home and property was very well kept. The... More

My wife and I stayed for a week at Casa Pelicano on our honeymoon, and although my expectations were already high from the great pictures and descriptions, when you see how beautiful the house and gardens are in person, you will literally be blown away. The views of the garden from the living room and bedroom are stunning. There was... More
