Connie, you made all our dreams come true with your beautiful Casa. The description on the internet does not gives this place the justice it deserves. We arrived at your Casa and the staff were more than friendly ensuring they attended to our every need. Once we entered your home, we were amazed at how extravagant it was. The decor was splendid and it made us feel as though we were experiencing the royal treatment in such a beautiful place. The gated community along with the security were friendly and very professional. We enjoyed lively entertainment on the malecon and the fish tacos were excellent. We went fishing in the Sea of Cortez and caught many fish. My only disappointment was that we were not able to stay longer than a week. I would suggest to anyone considering a week or weekend in San Felipe to consider Connie's Casa Layne. You will not be disappointed!
Sincerely, Pastor R. Randle
Beautiful Night time view from the roof. Great neighborhood, beautiful beach-so many colors before sunset. Great shower. Neighborhood pool great relief in the hot months.
Very nice and cozy! Perfect for a long weekend getaway. We will rent this place again and again.
The property is absolutely gorgeous. I took a road trip from San Diego to Casa Layne and traffic was a breeze. DEFINITELY fill up in Mexicali because at a point you will go a long ways without passing a gas station. The water was the warmest Ive ever been in, beautiful surroundings. Even though we took my car, I didnt want to drive into town. You can call security at the front gate, and they will call you a taxi, only a $5 ride and definitely worth it. The neighbors were all nice, as well as the security people. Will definitely be back and staying at Casa Layne for future visits. Thanks for everything!
My husband and I, along with our 2 dachshunds stayed at Casa Layne the week before Christmas. It was our present to ourselves this year. It was our first visit to San Felipe. We were so happy we chose Casa Layne to stay in. As other reviewers before have stated: The home is gorgeous. It had everything one needs to live very comfortably. We knew to bring our own food and we're glad we did because the local stores have a very limited and rather expensive selection of food. We loved the little restaurant just outside of the Playa de Oro security gate. It is for gringos, but that was fine by us. Even our waitress was a gringa. However, we did enjoy some wonderful local seafood at the Malecon (boardwalk) in town.
It was chilly for our stay there. We asked the property manager, Sabina, if there was heat. She said no, but the house was so well insulated that we never felt cold. There was plenty of everything as far as blankets, pillows, towels, dishes, pots and pans etc. I can think of nothing I wished for in the way of household amenities.
Thanks Connie. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing vacation.
Hi husband and I, along with our two dogs-Niko and Skruff, had the pleasure of staying at Casa Layne for 8 days. We had a fabulous time!! Where do I start, the house itself is super comfortable; I found the kitchen better than most other houses we have stayed at, with more than enough pots, pans, and cookware. Plan on bringing your own spices and oils, we came prepared so this was not an issue. There is an electric stove-oven that worked great and a charcoil BBQ on the back patio. There is filtered water for drinking. There is no dishwasher which was stated in other reviews, but honestly...it was not difficult to handwash our dishes...so I would hope that wouldn't put a damper on anyone's vacation :) The master shower is massive! We enjoyed the fenced yard with our dogs. There is a laundromat on site-super convenient which also has a little library of books, take one leave one style. There is also a deli, which was opened the weekend we left for the season, so unfortunately we did not get to try out. Rancho Market is right up the street from Playa de Oro and has just about everything you would need, and the staff are awesome. They have a great deli there with plenty of lunch options along with meats to grill. The beach access is a short walk from the house itself. We actually found the low tides great, many small pools to walk through, and even in late october, the ocean was a comfortable tempature for swimming. The pool on site was nice, a great added amenity. Rumors bar and grill on site was awesome...the food is very good and there is almost nightly entertainment; we had a great laugh with the bartender!! we enjoyed the karoake on saturday nights with all the locals! The Malecon is approx 6km from the community, a very quick drive. We did a day of sea fishing with Danny and Jorge's boats and caught a ridiculous number of fish in 5 hours-I would recommend other visitors a day of fishing off the Malecon.
If you plan on staying at Playa de Oro expect super friendly staff and neighbors, also try local spots such as Pete's Camp's outdoor bar and Jolly Mon bar and grill which also has live music. We met alot of people in all these places who gave us recommendations on tours and places to pick up supplies. Oh, and can't forget to mention the Shrimp Festival which occurs every year; it was so much fun! We look forward to staying at Casa Layne in the near future; thanks so much Connie for sharing such a special place with us!!
Property is located at the edge of the Sea of Cortez just 6 miles north of San Felipe and 2 hour drive south of the U.S. border.
