Casita Granada is not for everybody. If you enjoy having a bunch of 20-something year olds waking you at odd hours by yelling and throwing things off the balconey, you will not enjoy this villa. If you like listening to traffic noise and watching cars, motorcycles, and buses zipping down the boulevard, this one is not for you. Or if you like being pounded by big breakers on the beach and struggling to avoid being swept away by an undertow, forget about this place. Also don't come here if you need the stimulation of hundreds of people on the beach and the convenience of being able to buy your cheap jewelry, serapes, corn rows, hats, kites, and what have you from an army of peddlers who patrol the sand.
On the other hand, if you value beauty, quiet, tranquility, near-empty beaches, fabulous views, the joy of a 15 minute stroll down to a quiet little village loaded with fine resturants where you might be one of only a few like-minded patrons, this is probably where you need to be. And if, like me, you prefer to throw the catch of the day onto your own barbecue grill while preparing your own pico de gallo that you make from fresh provisions from the local mercado, in a fabulously appointed and well-equipped kitchen, and whipping up your own pina coladas with your own frsh fruit while watching the soft ocean swells out the living room windows, here is the place. Need to snorkle out to a breathtaking reef right from your front door? This is it. Want to watch the local kids play in the town plaza while listening to a mariachi band practicing in the bandshell while you eat the locally made ice cream? You got it.
Don't come here if you need an "all-inclusive" or enjoy paying outrageous resturant prices. Don't come here if you like crowds. And don't come here if you are not looking to relax in the finest condo, surrounded by the most wonderful setting imaginable.
Otherwise, Enjoy! You won't regret it!
