We just returned from a week's stay in Bucerias - renting both the Casita and Hacienda Al Mar for 16 adults and 4 children - best vacation ever! The connection between the two houses easy and welcoming to move back and forth if the doors are open. Speaking specifically about the Casita, we loved it! If we came back with a smaller group, we would choose the Casita to stay. There is a large covered "shady" area around the pool, allowing for plenty of room to get out of the sun, but still enjoy the outside area. The interior decorating is fantastic - from the lighting to the bedding - all beautifully chosen and extremely comfortable. The best part of our trip was the assistance given by the staff at the houses - Ana, who works at the Casita, was delightful! She also assisted Denise and Angela in making all of our meals, which were delicious! We were steps to the beautiful beach on a quiet, traffic-free street. There was plenty to "do", including a wealth of delicious restaurants nearby. We could not have felt more pampered in any other setting and everyone agreed they would love to return!
