Myself along with 6 friends stayed in the hacienda and quickly realized how lucky we were. More than enough room for everyone, perfect weather throughout the stay, a room full of beach toys, all of these made the entire trip wonderful. A community which is quick to help, and the constant appearances of dolphins makes wish we could be staying longer.
Right on the beach - and such a beautiful, uncrowded beach! We only saw a handful of other people the entire week. This house is set up perfectly for a big, extended family with several bedrooms (each with its own bath) and lots of beds. The great room/kitchen has plenty of space for gathering and enjoying time together. I have never seen such a well-stocked kitchen with all the gadgets and utensils you could need. Plus, for recreation, kayaks, life jackets, beach toys, games, puzzles - whatever strikes your mood, this house has it! When it's just my husband and I, we rent the smaller casita. But when we can get the whole family together again, we'll definitely be back to rent this bigger house. Perfection! Thanks Milo and Boni!
Dolphins, private beach, friendly locals, safe border crossing. Santo Tomas is well worth the drive for anyone looking to really get away. The Hacienda is warm and inviting with plenty of room for friends, family and cooking. Step off the patio and you are a quick step from the beach. The tide change is amazing and the water was perfect! Milo was quick to respond to any questions I had and there were no problems what so ever. Having someone with you who speaks Spanish is a plus but not necessary. We are already planning our next visit!
Milo and Bonnie are the most hilarious and kind people you will ever meet, and they give the best advice for all your needs in Mexico. Their beach front home was absolutely spectacular! I wouldn't recommend renting anywhere else!
Fantastic! Far exceeded our expectations!
We look forward to the next time we can book this vacation!
This was the perfect vacation for our family! The beach home has everything you need and the views are breathtaking! We got to kayak with dolphins twice during our 5 day stay and got to see so much wild life. The beach is full of sea shells, kids will love to collect them!
We will definitely come back here!
From beginning to end, we completely enjoyed working with Milo and staying at their home.
Milo made it easy to prepare for our vacation with lots of specific information. Along with all the housekeeping details, he shared all of the details of the ocean and desert that would make our trip more interesting. It was so much fun looking forward this trip.
The house was the perfect environment for us. It was cozy and well stocked. We had room for everyone and everything.
It was a pleasant surprise that the tap water was clean and drinkable. Therefore, we could have brought a little less water with us. However, we were glad to have brought everything we did since the location is so far from most conveinieces. However, the little store in town had a little bit of everything and they were very friendly.
The natural surroundings of the area were delightful. The ocean was peaceful and beautiful. The waves were typically gentle and made it easy for kids to maneuver the kayaks in at out. Kayaking with the dolphins was an amazing experience and we will never forget it. The sealife was plentiful and unique! We found an octopuss, jellyfish, clams, crabs, fish starfish, sand dollars and even a few dead eels. The endless hours of tidepooing were more enriching than any year long biology class.
We would consider this one of the best family trips ever. It was definatley worth the extra time it took to get to this little piece of paradise.
