Amazing, fabulous, luxurious, not to be missed rental property!"
We do an annual trip each year with a large group of friends, 15 guys in this case. The house was amazing, very luxurious, well appointed, HUGE, with plenty of beds and baths for our large group. We had beds for all but 2 guys and they slept on one of the many couches. The house appears to have been designed as a duplex but with no interior wall to divide the 2 mirror image sides. It has a great pool area, a large covered patio area in the back, and is a short walk down a dirt road to the beach.
The beach is very nice and there are multiple resorts next door, some that you can get day passes to use the all inclusive amenities including food and booze for about $70 per day. If you are into scuba diving and snorkeling there is a Dressel Divers shop located right on the beach at the end of the road you walk down so it is very convenient to use and I would recommend using them for your scuba/snorkel activities as it doesn't get much more convenient than that. We only used them for 1 dive day as we had previously scheduled another outfit for our other days otherwise we would have used them every day. The rooftop palapas and hammocks were very relaxing for afternoon naps as well.
I would highly recommend the cooking option with Martin's staff. They don't speak much English but Martin can get everything line up for you. They make amazing food and work really hard getting it all together and it was amazing for our group of 15, including some picky eaters. They made us breakfast and dinner every day and we had them put some snacks in the fridge for around lunch time every day as well. The value is unbelievable and the food was amazing. You can't go wrong using these fine ladies.
Martin is a very interesting guy and amazing host. He met us at the house and was a true pleasure to deal with. He had lots of great info for us and made sure he stopped by every day to see if we needed anything at all. We ran out of beer and liquor on our 2nd day and emailed him and he dropped by with 6 cases of beer and more liquor for our large group the next day. Several of our group just enjoyed sitting by the pool with a drink and chatting with him on several of the nights as he is very friendly.
Overall this was a great vacation rental and complete experience. If you want to kick back, relax, and live in luxury for a week on a very reasonable amount of money then this is the place for you.
