This was our first time using HomeAway and we were a little worried the pictures of this house might be too good to be true. However the house is even more beautiful in person. It is an awesome place for a vacation, the home really has everything you need and the neighbors and maids are very friendly. The house and pool were very very clean. We loved having a pool! The stay was really awesome. And the whole process of booking and paying for the house was very easy, no hidden fees or weird requests. Trish and Terry are great to work with. Trish was super friendly and answered all of our questions and concerns quickly. I would definitely stay here again!
Salchi Beach is also very pretty. Its not much of a swimming beach because the waves are a little rough but Huatulco has some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. There is a beach fairly close to the house called San Agustin. It is a great beach for swimming, snorkeling, or just having some food. I can also highly recommend La Entrega Beach, its right in town.
Just a side not if you are going in the rainy season (we spend the first week of October here): We arrived just a day or two after a big storm so the cable and internet were knocked out for the entire week we were staying there, but the Mantaraya Hotel (which is also right at Salchi Bay) let us use their internet. Being a beach vacation we really didn't need the internet much, we spend the majority of our time in the water! The Hotel did not charge us anything to use the internet which shows that the neighbors really are very friendly.
There are only two roads to Salchi Bay the last Kilometer and a half (about 1 mile) of both is dirt and sand so they were really rough to get over in cars when it has rained a lot. So its best to rent or bring a vehicle with 4-wheel drive if you are going in the rainy season or at the end of it. A really pleasant surprise for us was, a few days after we let the owners know how bad the roads were and that we got a flat tire going in, one of the roads was grated making it smooth and easy to drive on. So as mentioned before Trish and Terry are a pleasure to work with.
We definitely recommend this house!
