My husband and I are living our dream,taking our whole family on memorable vacations at least every 2 years. Finding great properties for a group of 16 at any time is always a challenge. This home is all that is advertised and more.The pictures don't do it justice.
When we arrived at Salina del Mar , Greg Michaels, the owner and builder, was there waiting for us as well as Ericson, our chef and concierge for the week.
The beauty of this villa is breathtaking-the landscaping, the casitas, the pool and palapa. With this many bedrooms we were able to give each couple private suites plus large casitas for all the children. The facilities were immaculate and beautifully and thoughtfully maintained. We just felt like we had died and gone to heaven. The best ever!!!
As the week progressed we made great friends with the Ericson and her staff. Our children said they wanted to adopt Josephina-so loving to us all. Any questions or activity suggestions and someone was alway on hand.We went ATVing, window shopping in town but most of all exploring the miles of white sand beach in front of our villa and using the SUP's on site.
One of the really great things about this home is the amount of private space where you can curl up with a book or take a nap. It took us days to discover all the special spots. We all started exclaiming about being in " our happy place". It truly was a remarkable place and we are already planning our next trip to Salina del Mar.
Be sure to walk around the north point and explore the amazing tide pools and rock formations. Take binoculars so you can be on the look out for whales just off the shore. Snorkel to the shipwreck near our beach and kayak to your hearts content. Have a great massage.
Really indulge yourselves, have Ericson prepare meals for you. We planned on having her make breakfast and dinner a couple days during our stay. After the first night we voted to have her do them all. It was one of the best parts of our trip. She kept surprising us with special treats.The meals were those of a chef, not a cook.
Our concierge( Lisette?) would drop down in the afternoon with a special cocktail or cookies for the grands. I could go on and on but suffice to say -this place is a gem. All we dreamed of and more . Thanks to Greg, Ericson and all the staff.
