Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Clement,

I just wanted to let you know that Casa Descalza is absolutely gorgeous. Everyone said it was one of the most beautiful houses they had ever seen. The staff are wonderful, so well trained and friendly. Brenda’s cooking is excellent. Way beyond my expectations! David is happy with the AppleTV and the boys are enjoying the sound system. And the drinks are yummy. Everything is so well maintained.

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

After driving through a lovely papaya plantation, through the gates of Costa Cumana, we arrived at the most beautiful beach house we had ever seen! As we passed through the main living area to the pool we were greeted by a pod of humpback whales breaching just offshore right in front!! The house is even more beautiful than it looks in the pictures, gorgeously decorated. But even better than the house is the wonderful staff...Hilario, Brenda, Beto, and Elli. We are not used to being waited on and we weren't sure we even wanted that but rest DO want it!! They are so friendly and unobtrusive, anticipating your every need. Brenda's cooking is varied and delicious, Beto's margaritas, made with fresh lime, were fantastic, Hilario does a great job of managing everything very smoothly, and Elli keeps things wonderfully clean. The menu is totally tailored to your likes and dislikes. The sunsets from the daybed were amazing and the beach is pristine, just steps away across the lawn. We saw hundreds of fish jumping in the waves, dolphins, and even a Stingray one day! The one drawback is that the surf is quite powerful here, not a place for children or the faint of heart to swim; save it for the pool. Puerto Escondido, about a 15 minute drive, is a lovely town not yet discovered by the hordes of tourists further north.Georgina, the manager, suggested a trip to swim in the bio-luminescence of Laguna de Manialtepec just north of Puerto. We decided to give it a try, not really expecting much, and it turned out to be a fantastic experience for the whole family! We definitely hope to return to Casa was a truly relaxing holiday!

An amazing week at Casa Descalza

  • 5 of 5

We have pent a wonderful week at this villa. We were 11 including 2 young children. The house is perfect and provides a lot of intimacy while allowing us to spent nice time together. The weather was perfect everyday. But most amazing of all was the staff. You can't find nicer people. They will go out of their way to ensure you have an unforgettable stay. They organized a pinata for our son in law's birthday and prepared a beach fire for us one night. Arce is an unbelievable cook, her food is authentic and delicious. You will not raise your little finger all week long. Best vacation ever !

We were five couples that stayed at casa descalza for two weeks. WE have all travelled together many times and go out adventure seeking, but here was different no one wanted to leave. It was paradise. The meals were fantastic,the service of drinks and appies beyond what we ever thought.

We experienced incredible sunsets, releasing of turtles,massages ,dancing,boogie boarding,walks on the beach and new friendships .With never leaving Casa Descalza and the wonderful people there.It was a trip of a lifetime in fact one of our favorites. Would do it all again in heartbeat. Thank you Hilario , Bento, Addie, Addison, Dany and Joanne.

Don't look anywhere else! This is PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing luxury property on a 20-kilometer stretch of deserted beach. With fabulous sunsets and friendly, professionnal staff, this is the perfect place to unwind and let go of all the stress accumulated over the years. This is virtually Heaven on Earth. I recommend it highly!
