Great for Couples

  • 2 of 5
We rented Casa Juanita for 6 months from Feb-July 2014 myself, husband and our 2 young children (2 & under 1) but ended up leaving after only 3 months (gave 1 month notice) because the property location just wasn’t suitable for foot travel with children and there was no yard. We enjoyed the real Mexican feel of the town and house. We spent many hrs enjoying the long porch during the day and patio off the kitchen at night (luckily we had packed our own large screen tent). The sunsets never disappointed us or our visitors. A few things are misleading in the listing: 1 The short walk to the beach is a steep hill with a roughly cobblestone surface not easily walkable with young children or people who might have mobility issues. The other option is a rough narrow path through the woods again up and down hills. 2 The yard is nothing like the picture or description -no grassy area or palapa and hammock. 3 There is NO off street parking and while we were there several cars on our street were broken into. We cooked most of our meals at the house and found the stores in the area had most of everything we would need. The kitchen had a great knife set and you could host up to 20 people with all the plates, cups and cutlery. On the down side the pots and pans were in a large garbage bin and a mish mash of sizes either too large or too small with no lids to match and the stove is in need of repair or replacement. We had to clear out the closet and the bureau so we could unpack as there were lots of personal items left. Half the light bulbs were not working, one of the air conditioners was broken as was 1 of the 2 ceiling fans in the living area/bedroom. When I asked the caretaker about it he said, yes it’s broken and it wasn’t fixed. We found the main living area/bedroom a bit dingy and not really clean. The house just didn’t seem to be set up to rent out. There were no instructions left on what to do with garbage, recycling, how to get water, what to do in case of emergency or how to get a hold of the caretaker if there were other problems. The owner did respond promptly when we emailed regarding some of these questions but it would have been more helpful to just have an instruction manual (as we had with all the other properties that we rented off VRBO).For the most part we really enjoyed our stay in Aticama and the caretaker was very helpful. I would recommend this property to couples for a fun getaway but NOT to families with children of any age.

Diamond in the rough

  • 5 of 5
This pretty cliffside Casa is a diamond in the rough. If you are a little bit adventuresome, it is so worth the lovely drive through small Mexican villages to go there. It is not a tourist place at all do during the week, you have the beautiful beaches to yourself and the water was warm. Even though we don't speak Spanish, we were able to get by just fine even though very little English is spoken. The Casa itself was very special. The architecture was in true Mexican style with arched brick ceilings, hand painted designs on the colorful walls, lovely round bathroom, pretty Mexican furniture, wonderful veranda overlooking the tropical gardens and ocean. This place really allowed my creative juices to flow as I ended up painting 3 paintings during our stay. It also comes with a lovely seperate guest bedroom with its own round bathroom. We had some friends come up for the weekend and they had a blast. I don't remember the last time I got this relaxed away from it all (even though we had wifi). The Casa also comes with a caretaker who was extremely helpful and a watchdog which I'm not sure we needed as the place felt very safe. With an outdoor kitchen, we did have to learn the timing of our meals to have dinner cooked by sunset otherwise with lights on, you could invite bugs to join you for dinner. We would love to come back here!!! Thanks Peggy!!
