This property has a main house with two bedrooms and then three additional one bedroom apartments attached to it. The house is very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen as are the three other apartments. Mazatlan 4 rent, who manages the property, was very helpful in organizing transportation and providing information about Mazatlan. The security in the El Cid housing area is very tight so that we never felt at risk any time we were there. My only suggestion is that you might want to have your own car as it is a bit of a challenge to get a taxi.

I can’t say enough about what a wonderful stay we had at this amazing human Sandcastle. The place is extraordinary! 10 of us stayed for 6 nights to celebrate my 40th birthday. Rafael and Cindy were amazing! They helped make our stay very easy, hospitable, and enjoyable. Lionne and Lori were also very helpful in finding and arranging things for us to do. They were prompt with communication, and we felt the costs were fair and clearly communicated.
The property is very well managed and cared for. The architect was amazing too and definitely valued interesting and engaging grounds as well as a fascinatingly designed manse. The interior is cooler than the pics give it credit for. It is literally a human created sandcastle for humans. Every child’s dream.
You will probably want a car if you plan to go out for food and drink. There is a café next door with live music from 1-4pm Wednesday-Saturday, otherwise you are on your own in a secluded area of the beach, which is filled with beautiful sea glass. It’s nice to be off the beaten path a bit, but Rafael can help arrange transportation and other activities if you need help organizing and planning outings.
Overall, I highly recommend this place! We’re planning to be back within the year!
