“Well cared for. I highly recommend”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We are travelers who enjoy being away from the crowds. This is the place to come if you enjoy the same.

Casona Palms is a very well managed and well cared for home. When you walk in you are immediately blown away by the beauty both indoors and out. The home is well crafted with thoughtful details and beautiful landscaping. We enjoyed the patio area which allowed for enjoyment of the outdoors and beauty of the ocean under shade. Hammocks were set up daily for enjoyment of the ocean breeze between the palm trees.

The kitchen is very well equipped and has a full size 6 burner stove, blender, full size fridge and great food preparation area with loads of counter space. Coffee maker with filters is provided as well as a toaster. We never felt like we were lacking anything in the kitchen.

We stayed with our son, who is 8 years old. He loved the caretakers & the dogs, despite the language barrier they were able to form a wonderful connection. Our son spent most evenings hunting around the property for hermit crabs with a bright flash light. If you have kids bring along a light for them to do the same. Jorge helped him find several hiding under the bushes. Such fun!

The beach area is wonderful for swimming or just building sand castles. There are several toy buckets and shovels for the kids to have a great time. The kayaks are great for getting out a bit father to explore and do some snorkeling. There are a few life jackets on hand for both adult and kids.

The beds were VERY comfortable. The adjustable shutters allow for ample airflow throughout the bedrooms upstairs. We all slept very well here, waking each morning to the sounds of the birds, wind in the palms and sound of the waves. There is also a great closet. The bathrooms are very spacious. Bottled water is provided for teeth brushing. Showers are very big, there is no shortage of hot water.

The caretakers were very gracious and helpful. I suggest if you cannot speak Spanish very well, to download Google translate onto your smartphone for easy communication. They were always up early raking the beach and making things tidy, hanging hammocks and setting out the kayaks for our use. If you need them they are there for whatever you need, otherwise they are quiet and keep to themselves. They are a definite asset.

Michael, the owner, has always been very prompt and friendly with communication. My booking was seamless and easy. Do not hesitate to book this vacation home with him. We recommend it 100%!

The most beautiful house we ever rented with a location out of a movie.....

A true gem,and an amazing host!

“Exceptional Property”

My family of 4 (me, my husband and 2 college aged daughters) stayed at the villa for 9 days over the Christmas holiday. The house and rooms were far more spacious than depicted in the photos and every aspect of the house and property were beyond our expectations. By far, Casona Palms is the finest home along the El Uvero coast. The owner, Michael, is an excellent host and administers to his property like a 5 star hotel making sure that all of your wants and needs are met in a timely manor. The caretakers Jorge and Marisela were lovely and attentive but speak almost no English and our Spanish was only slightly better, but we were able to communicate via translation app on our phones. The house is very remote and the dirt access road can get a bit washed out. We were fortunate enough to have rented a Jeep Wrangler which I highly recommend as a mode of transportation. We enjoy travel off the typical tourist path - eating street food and spending time amongst the locals who were nothing short of helpful, friendly and gracious. Casona Palms is secluded beauty at it's best and Michael Owen is a top notch owner who takes great pride in his property. The only negative aspect of our stay was the ecological problems facing the Mahahual coast which is a worldwide issue and should be researched.

“Gorgeous Location and Wonderful People”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this lovely villa recently during June and July. The scenery is stunning, gorgeous beach, and quiet solitude. On the drive down, we had the unfortunate luck to get a flat tire, and the spare was in horrible condition. We managed to make it to the villa on the tire. The caretakers of the property, Alfonso and his wife Patricia are fantastic people. Alfonso was in contact with Hertz for us, because of the language barrier, and even drove us 2 hours one-way to help us purchase 2 new tires for the car. Patricia kept the home clean, and anything we needed, they were right there for us. We made 2 new friends on this trip! If you like a quiet location, don't mind a drive, then this is the place for you.
