“Paradise found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2009

Really lovely if you want to kick back and relax. We have been going for many years, and feel so fortunate that we have been able to keep going back, and find that it has not changed, it is like our home in Mexico! Tina and the staff do an outstanding job keeping the place clean, and the gardens lush.

Stayed February 2009, traveled as a couple

My wife and I flew to Leon, El Bajio, Guanajuato this past July 25 to attend a family wedding in Salamanca, Guanajuato. The following week my wife and I along with my brother-in-law Macario and his family took a very scenic 5 hour drive down to the beaches of northern Guerrero, Mexico. The road trip from Salamanca, Guanajuato to Ixtapa took us through some very beautiful places in the state of Michoacan. I highly recommend taking the toll road although it's a bit pricey, but much safer and shorter of a distance than the old highway. My brother-in-law told me that we were able to shave off over 2 hours of travel on the toll road.

My wife's sister-in-law Adela did some research on the net and she came across Casa Ki. Their website contains very clear info regarding their rates and amenities offered to guests. We felt their prices were a true bargain. Tina and Emur who manage Casa Ki are two very down-to-earth individuals who made us feel very welcome. Tina's parents who built Casa Ki over 18 years ago are some very nice folks from California that have truly built a wonderful place for those looking to get away from all the noise, pollution and clutter that one would expect in Ixtapa or Zihua.

If you enjoy cooking as we do, then you'll love their big Casa Azul with its beautiful, rustic Mexican kitchen. We were very happy to see a fisherman come by the property every morning selling freshly caught red snapper, jumbo shrimp and other seafood at a good price. We highly recommend Casa Ki to anyone looking to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a small town next to a beautiful beach in Troncones, Guerrero, Mexico.

I stayed in Casa Ki. [--]

It is simple, but is a great fit if you want a private comfortable vacation without the crowds.

This is not a swimming beach, it is a surfing beach, so if you like to play in the waves, it is heaven.

Lots of rocks near casa ki, but up the beach there is a good spot. We like the rocks nearby as they form pools that are great for the kdis to explore, supervised.

All in all a great time and only 20 min or so from Ixtapa ziho if you want a night on the town or a fishing charter.

Love it.

We have just finished a two week stay at Casa Ki and found it delightful in all respects. The staff is excellent; pleasant and attentive. The premises were clean, the morning breakfasts were a delight and the manager, Tina, was both helpful and pleasant.

This is a very good bargain. Nice gardens, on the beach and a fair price.

The sign on our bungalow read "bung rojo." That pretty much says it all about this place.

We found our room to be small and hot. I guess you could say that it was cheap at $100/night except the much needed A/C was an extra $10 per day and you can rent a really nice place down the beach for the same amount (believe me, I checked it out).

On the cleanliness front, there were incidents with cat feces and dog slobber in the foot bath. Not nice.

All of that would have been fine, but the manager was a real problem. I could list a litany of issues, but basically she made staying there very unpleasant. I'm sure that she is a nice person in need of a break.

The one saving grace was that the staff was very nice and capable.

Sorry to say, this place is Bung Rojo.

We first ventured into Ed and Ellen's Casa Ki and fell in love. It's not the Ritz but if you are looking for quiet, this is the place. Little casita that have a nice bathroom, refir with little freezer, mosquito nets, good beds,and wonderful porches. A great outdoors kitchen where you have breakfast in the morning and then can make lunch and dinner on you own, has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. The grounds are beautiful with palm trees and other tropical plants make it cool during those hot afternoon. Great place for kids. Be careful of the surf, it can be very strong
