“Perfect and friendly made us feel right at home”
Reviewed January 20, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The casita has everything that you could possible need for a relaxing stay and more, it was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. The hosts are fantastic we enjoyed cocktail hours and meals with them on several occasions throughout our stay. They were very helpful with directions and tips on the area. Its just a short walk to town or you can take a tuk tuk. The beach is just mere minutes away of a short stroll. We highly recommend this casita and location.

Charming, perfect guest home is a convenient short walk to the town Chelem..and moments to the Beach and Sea! The Guest home accommodations are really lovely, immaculate and have a fully equipped kitchenette, and welcomed air conditioning for your utmost comfort! They have a beautiful landscapped patio sitting area and a immaculately maintained pool for enjoyment. Marilyn and Eric are wonderful hosts that somehow manage to allow for your privacy , yet are available for any help you may need during your holiday.
Their "Casita"came highly recommended as "the best" place to stay during our visit, and we were certainly glad we booked this!!!
We most definitely hope to return again soon to this beautiful "Casita"
Thank you again Eric and Marilyn! !!

My husband and I stayed at this casita May 21st - May 28th and had a wonderful stay. I cannot tell you how hard it was to leave.

The casita is so nicely appointed and had everything we needed/wanted for our stay. Everything is well-maintained, very clean, and the grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed the pool daily during our stay. We found such great deals at area restaurants that we really didn't cook, but would have had everything we needed if necessary.

One of the best things about our trip was meeting Eric and Marilyn, the owners of the property. We were researching the area as a potential retirement site and they provided a wealth of knowledge. We had such a good time and met such nice people in the area that we are 'moving up' our timeline for relocating to Mexico.

My wife & I had the pleasure of staying in Chelem in the company of our wonderful hosts! Not only were they incredibly friendly and accommodating but provided us with a wealth of knowledge of the area. The room was immaculate and very comfortable, with air conditioning and fans for those warm nights. Would highly recommend without any hesitation and look forward to staying with them next time we are in Chelem!

Amazing place with all the amenties needed. We have been going to Mexico for 7 years now and this was by far the most comfortable place we have ever rented. It is approx 4 mexican blocks to the Gulf of Mexico and a km to walk into town. Marilyn and Eric were extremely gracious and helped with a ton of information necessary while we were looking at purchasing a property. Thanks guys!
