We stayed at Casa Tres Azules the last week of November 2013. We were 3 small families, and the house was amazing! Each family had one of the casitas and the children slept in the TV room, which has 2 beds, and the maid's/mother in law room. It was perfect. We really didn't leave the house much, as there is absolutely no reason to! The beach is AMAZING and very private. We rarely saw anyone else on the beach, just a few fisherman on our morning walks. There is a little lagoon, not too far down the beach where the kids loved to play. We were worried, based on things we'd read, about the undertow and the current, but it wasn't too bad. It was definitely strong at times, but we kept an eye on the kids and they were able to play in the water, boogie board and body surf with no problem. The water was bathtub warm, just perfect. The beach and water were very clean, no debris as we've seen at other beaches along the Pacific. The pool at the house was also amazing. It was perfect for everyone as there is a deeper lap pool area and then a shallow area with a large platform that is great for little kids. As you walk up from the beach to the house, there is a water spigot where you can wash off so as to not track sand into the pool. There is also an outdoor shower on the side of the house near the pool.
I can't say enough good about Nina the house manager and Julio the ground keeper. They were both amazing and so helpful! Julio has a van and you can arrange to have him pick you up at the airport if you aren't planning on renting a car. If you want to go into the city regularly, you'll want a car, but if you are just planning on staying at the house, you could arrange for Julio to help you get into the market or the airport. We had Itzel cook for us while we were there and she was fantastic! She was so friendly and nice to have around and the food was delicious and displayed beautifully. We especially loved the pina coladas and fruit juices that she'd make from fresh coconuts on the property and the fresh pineapples up the street. We would tell Julio what we needed each day and he'd cut them off the trees fresh! Amazing! His wife also makes delicious tortillas and you can have Julio bring them each morning. We truly LOVED every minute of our stay at the house. It was warm and humid, so we stayed in the pool most of the day, but the air conditioners in each room made sleeping very comfortable. Thank you Katherine for sharing your home!
