Guestbook comments from the owner

Roger, First of all, could you send us the mailing address for the crew at “Casa Pena Del Mar”? We want to send them a note. Thanks.

How can I say it adequately? Our joy and satisfaction with our second visit exceeded that of our first, if that is possible. During the past two years, Elena has graduated with honors from the School of Maria. She is a wonderful and knowledgeable force with a tremendous sense of responsibility.

I particularly give her credit for preparing the hand-over. From a distance, we saw her mapping out her plans days early. The day before, as we left the house to go about our business in town, her team swooped in and did much of the preparatory work. She gently asked if, Friday morning, they could make the beds early in the day, but of course, only if that was convenient for us. We took the opportunity to have lunch at the club. (Love the club!) When our final group departed at 2 pm, it literally was time for the next group to arrive. The house was immaculate and the fringe on every carpet was combed and ready.

And then, there was Sondra! Carmen was good, but Sondra was great. What a treasure. On our third visit to PV, between Sondra’s cooking and the club, there was little reason to dine in town, except for our two dinners at El Arrayán.

The house, of course, looks great. We particularly noticed the orchids, which were a nice addition. I must say, the floor plan for your neighbor’s new house baffles us a bit, but à chacun son goût.

We declared this the year of the whale. At the request of one of our sons, my wife and I took the opportunity to read Moby Dick, shamelessly overdue for both of us. Literally at the moment I first read “Thar she blows!”, one of your own whales appeared breaching just offshore. We had another visit later in the week, this time from a family group. (If you paid the whales to do this for us, it was money well spent!) Thank you, too for the boat. We headed to the south shore this time, so no whales there. The dinghy was a major convenience.

Thanks from our family to both of you, once again, for sharing with us your beautiful home and your exceptionally warm staff. Please put us at the top of your reference list.

Best wishes for a happy new year.

A group or us (8 adults and 4 children) have come here 2 years in a row and both years have exceeded expectations. From the start Karol was so great and handled our booking and food order and upon arrival Elena, Sarah, Amanda and Dario take care of everything from the top notch food to the cleanliness of the house. Down the street is the beach club that has great food as well and an awesome beach and pool. We have come to think of this place as our second home! We will be back!!!

12 of us girls stayed at Casa Pena del mar for Memorial Day weekend and it was nothing short of perfect! Elena took care of anything you could possibly need. She coordinated cab rides to go downtown, booked people to come to the house to do massages and even made a last minute alcohol run when the reserve got low ;)

The house could not have been better. Each room had ample space and an incredible view. There were 12 of us but we could have even had a couple more join comfortable. The food was delicious. We were spoiled with all of the fresh, home cooked food and some of the best guacamole I've had. No need to lift a finger to clean, somehow all the messes we made magically disappeared. It truly was one of the most fun and relaxing trips any of us have been on. Highly recommend!!!

AMAZING - we had an incredible week!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for a girls trip - there were 5 of us, so we each had our own room, but the house accommodates many more. The house itself is extraordinary and when the glass doors are opened, it creates a wonderful open air feel that really connects the pool area with the house. The salt water pool was delicious and the palapa was a big hit - a lovely spot for reading, talking or just taking in the gorgeous view.

Karol was amazing and helped with every question we had before and after we booked and really set the stage for our trip. Then from the moment we arrived at the house, we were treated like very special guests. Elena the house manager took wonderful care of us and was always there with a warm smile and a solution for whatever we needed. Sarah the chef made breakfast and dinner for us each day and her meals rivaled any of the best restaurants we've enjoyed - she is a marvel in the kitchen and even shared some of her recipes with us. Our week was relaxing and luxurious - the house is beautiful and is cleaned every day by Amanda. Between Elena, Sarah and Amanda, we didn't have to shop, cook or clean - we were completely pampered and felt very much at home. Elena even booked a group massage for us one day and we had 5 fantastic massage therapists come to the house and give us all a massage by the pool - heaven!

The neighborhood club is even nicer than it looks in the pictures - it has a beautiful club/pool area and the beach is pristine - the staff there is very attentive and brought us many Mango Margaritas, Pina Coladas and Quesadillas down to our beach loungers in the shade.

Our group had an unbelievably wonderful week at Casa Pena - it's a treasure made all the more special by the wonderful women that are its caretakers!

Our stay at Casa Pena del Mar was simply amazing. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 children (3 and 6 years old). The house had everything we could possibly need for our stay and the staff took care of anything and everything we needed. We have been to PV several times now and have never stayed somewhere as beautiful as this home. From drinking our morning coffee while watching the boats on the ocean, to enjoying the shaded pool and hot tub at the house, or even walking down to the beach club for lunch, our entire trip was priceless. Thank you so much to the owner for making this entire process from booking to our stay so easy. We look forward to coming back very soon!

This house worked perfectly for us (2 grandparents, 2 families with 2 five year olds and 2 seven year olds).  Grandparents were downstairs with our private balcony/terrace and the kids and their parents upstairs in the four bedrooms - each with a wonderful balcony/sitting area.  


It is a lovely, spacious house - so well thought out, furnished  and equipped. The views are gorgeous and easily enjoyed in almost every room.  The balconies and private little gardens and niches scattered throughout are totally cool!

The staff was the frosting on the cake.  Elena is so smart and pleasant that everything we did was easy.  Dear Amanda worked very hard to keep the house and even our clothes immaculate, while Dario somehow kept the grounds beautiful and the pool neat and tidy despite kid’s stuff strewn around.  Sara’s breakfasts were so much fun ..the kids had already been in the pool once and then we sat by the pool and ate and ate and ate.

Dinners were lovely - either inside or out ( although there is not much difference when all the doors/windows are open).

The Beach Club became our private club as there was rarely anyone there. The kayaks and SUPS we fun for all and the younger kids could really enjoy the beach. We all loved our day trip for lunch, horseback riding and Yelapa with Jose Luis and his boat, as well as a fishing trip with him which provided dinner for that night. The pirate ship we thought would be hokey, but turned out to be terrific. Who can say “no” to having a “personal pirate” for a day!

Elena is a special treasure.  The kids adored her and we adults deeply appreciated all that she did.

Karole made the booking and all the details very pleasant, quick and easy.

Beautiful home and a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this house. My only concern with writing such praises is that when we try to come back next year, all the dates will be taken. Traveling with my husband and son were two other couples and two other kids (oldest almost 4). They had everything you could ask for making traveling with little ones so effortless once we arrived. The home is gorgeous, the food was delicious (thank you Karen!) and the trip was a blast. Elena was amazing. She was so helpful, sweet and just an all around pleasure to be around as she set us up with everything we could ask for throughout the week. I can't say enough good things about them all (Dario and Amanda- thanks for cleaning up after us)! We are looking forward to returning soon.
