My partner and I had a magical 4-night stay at the Casita! The property is stunning, lots of character with such attention to detail - better than in the pictures. We settled in quickly and had the most restful vacation in a long time - from the comfortable bed to the well-equipped kitchen and outdoor dining table (and grill!) to easy access to the beach and views of the ocean and whales! Bernie and Marietta were fantastic hosts, sent over detailed directions, and even had a beach kit for us to use, complete with boogie boards and beach chairs. Each morning we cooked a big breakfast on the sun-drenched patio, then loaded up the beach kit and walked to a swimming beach about a mile north of the Casita. We had the whole beach to ourselves and watched the sunset over the ocean each evening. At the end of the day, we'd walk back along the beach to the Casita and grill a feast outside for dinner under the stars, listening to the waves crash. Truly magical. We can't wait to come back to Mision Trinidad!
Would recommend without hesitation, in particular for a romantic getaway or a family with young kids. Plenty of beach activities for the kids and you won't need to drive down to Cerritos Beach, unless you're planning to surf and even then it's only a 10min drive away!
