This is a perfect little oasis in the centre of a truly authentic village. Bob and Linda are great hosts with plenty of suggestions and advise for getting around and experiencing the whole Mexican experience. The place is small so you get a chance to just say hi or if you like, visiting with other guests. The court yard area... More

The hosts Bob and Linda were fine. The hotel is overpriced for what you get. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a week. There is no maid service. You can take your sheets to the office to be exchanged once a week. One small bath towel per guest that can be exchanged twice a week. We stayed in... More

This is everything you ever wanted. Bob and Linda are the perfect hosts. They will make all the arrangements for you to go swimming with the dolphins, zip lining, the glass bottom boat to snorkel, court yard pot luck, taxis, or whatever you want to do. By the time you've been there a day or two everyone is like family.... More

We have just returned from our 2nd month long stay at Casita La Penita. Once again our hosts Bob & Linda Gibbs went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a memorable one. We met up with some returning friends (guests) and met some wonderful new friends. The 1 bedroom apartment meets all of our needs, we can... More

We were looking for a place in Mexico off the beaten path and I recalled an article in our local paper about Casita de la Penita in La Penita de Jaltemba which was owned by a couple from Canada (it turns out the article was actually 14 years ago - I guess my memory is still holding up). Linda was... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago and found it beautifully decorated and outfitted, with a delightful patio and tiny pool. Owners are accommodating and friendly. It's across the road from the beach, and about 5 km north of Rincon de Guayabitos, the hot tourist destination nearby. Both towns fill up with Canadians in the winter months and they... More

We just returned from spending two memorable weeks at Casita de la Penita in a three bedroom Bungalow which was very spacious and comfortable for our needs. All the bungalows are very spacious and well appointed with the Mexican décor. The staff were very attentive to all our requests during our stay. We also visited the neighbouring town of Rinco...

We were in Apartment 6 for 10 days and it is the best accommodation in La Penita. We got to see a few other accommodations where friends were staying and our Casitas were far and away the best. We had a beautiful view of the ocean outside our door, on the communal veranda. Sunsets were fantastic. And there was the... More
