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

March 10 2014, the end of another great holiday at the Casita. We agree whole heartedly with all the comments in the recent reviews. Bob and Linda always make us feel like we are coming home when we get there! Don & Linda

This was the fifth or sixth time our family has returned to the Casita - and we are never disappointed. Bob and Linda are friendly, informative hosts, always keeping guests informed of interesting local activities or noteworthy restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and adequate for the time you spend in them - but you will want to be outside most... More

Casita de La Penita is the perfect introduction to the Jaltemba Bay. Bob and Linda Gibbs are thoughtful hosts who not only care about their guests (which are legion) but the community in which they have placed their business (and believe me, this is no easy feat). I am privileged to have been their guest on two occasions, and although... More

My sister and I planned a trip to Mexico but wanted a "true Mexican" flavour - no all inclusives with huge buffets of the same food every day. Casita was recommended by friends and it has been all we were looking for! Bob and Linda are great hosts, helpful with day trips,restaurant recommendations,banking tips,shopping hints and anything you could want!... More

Our first time at Casita for 2 weeks Feb-March 2013 was the best winter holiday escape from the frozen north! Bob & Linda Gibbs arranged for us to be met at PV airport after a late evening flight, which was very much appreciated. The apartments are very well equipped, the ceiling fans most welcome, and linen changes available when needed.... More

We stayed at Casita de La Penita in late Jan,/early Feb. This was the third time we stayed at the Gibb's and as usual, we were made to feel completely at home upon your arrival.
