Excellent home right on a beautiful secluded beach.
Away from the crowds of Rocky Point. It was a nice drive in the country with very little hassle in finding the location.
The hacienda was very spacious and very clean. Everything was perfect and we felt very safe. Ran up the beach 4-5 miles and back every morning. The kids enjoyed swimming, playing and searching for sea shells.
We definitely look forward to staying again and we highly recommend this place. Milo & Bonnie were a pleasure to work with. All done via emails and one phone call.

“The ideal beach holiday destination for adventurers and those looking to really get away.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our 18 year old daughter and 15 year old son found the perfect mix of relaxing and being active ... so WE were happy, too! There is just so much to explore on the beach and in the cactus forests! Kayaking with dolphins NEVER gets old, which is why we come back every year. We've made memories that I can see when I close my eyes, all year long. The birds are everywhere, the sand dollars, beach campfires, wading the tidal pools. It's a paradise. The house is perfectly equipped and so stylish! Thank you Milo and Boni. The second we get home, we start looking forward to next April again.

“Magical Mexican vacation on the Sea of Cortez”

This year was my fourth year vacationing at Santo Thomas and I just absolutely love it there.
The house is beautiful and totally equipped with all you could possibly need. Boni and Milo are amazing. The walks on the the beach, walking in the desert, kayaking with the dolphins coming so close, watching the pelicans, sandpipers and cranes and just breathing in the sea air and soaking up the sun are things that I wait for all year.
It's been less than a month since I was there and I miss it already!
The house is beautiful and Boni and Milo are

“Paradise on Earth”

We have been going to Milo and Boni's beautiful place in Santo Thomas each Spring for nearly a decade. We can say without reservation that the Mexican beach experience that they've created their is the best that can be found anywhere. In between the beautifully and stylishly designed and decorated vacation rentals, furnished sea kayaks, dolphins, and direct beach access, their place is truly paradise on Earth. The best thing of all is that they share this experience so willingly and lovingly. For a unique opportunity to get away from it all and regroup, head to Santo Thomas.

Kris and Joe,
Thanks again for your great review. We came down last night and it is superb. Adolfo spoke very highly of you and your family.
The Ipod docks and dictionaries are now in the Hacienda and Casita. Thanks for the tip.
Your review was the best ever and we would like to reward you with an additional $100 off your next full week stay at our beach. We always give a $100 discount for returning guests so you will have a $200 credit.
We also installed all new locks on knobs and deadbolts so the keys are smooth as butter.
Thanks again for your wonderful review. We hope to be here on your next stay so we can become friends.
