About Thomas Marquardt

We are Thomas and Rebecca and live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We always had a dream to one day escape the dreary wet winters of west coast Canada and find a little spot in paradise to vacation and retire.

The long search for an oceanfront condo started 3 years ago, with many hours spent scouting locations all over the world via the Internet. We then visited some of the most idyllic spots, but never really found what we were looking for, until one weekend, in May 2009, Thomas discovered a small seaside town in southern Mexico called Puerto Escondido and instantly fell in love with the place. He went there to see an oceanfront condo, but it was not meeting all our expectations. When he was shown a property on a 100 ft high waterfront bluff with an amazing panoramic view of the ocean, there was no stopping us, our adventure in Puerto Escondido began....

Thomas Marquardt purchased this condo in 2010

Why Thomas Marquardt chose Carrizalillo

It is an oceanfront property with a spectacular 180 degree view. Our condo is within short walking distance to the beach with golden sand and clear emerald warm water. Shopping is just a short walk away too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had an incredible stay at Casa Rebecca. We loved the floor plan and the location was great. this are the highlights of our vacation experience:

o The palapa in the noonday sun – with the breezes blowing, and the so comfortable chaises (and hammock), and the 270 degree view of the ocean, we watched the whales and the fishing boats…

o Lying in bed at night looking at the starry sky and the unusual number of nighttime fishing boats and counting the shooting stars…..

o Walking everywhere especially to all the handy shops and restaurants in Rinconada and exploring all the houses and bays nearby….

o Marveling at the Mercado - only not as claustrophobic as Zihuatenejo or Puerto Vallarta and where else would one be pursued by an oompah-pah band through the flower section of the market?

o Swimming at the end of the day in the bathtub warm pool....

o And the overall revelation of how reasonable prices were – we usually cook alternate nights with our other couple but your stove remained unsullied as we ate out every night.

o Finally, the property manager extraordinaire; always responded quickly and positively while displaying charm and patience (I locked myself out twice… I came down to Puerto Escondido to recuperate from the flu and attendant pneumonia feeling more dead than alive and have fully recovered. Our stay was very pleasant and we think you’ve found a gem!

Thank you for the chance to discover Puerto Escondido –its been quite a revelation and we think we’re on to something really special,

Beautiful accommodations, amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here! We had a few hiccups, one of the locks on the main door didn’t work but we still fet secure as there were 3 more locked doors to get in the unit. The wifi didn’t work the whole time we stayed but was resolved in the final day.

We loved the area! We came for a wedding but not very good speaking Spanish. We did very well and managed ok getting around. Taxis were easy to obtain and pretty easy to communicate with.

Casa Rebecca was a little out of the way but totally worth it. Easy walk to the main drag (rinconada) where we caught cabs to go to all the beaches and stores. We will be coming back and we will be referring this casa to friends and family! It was nice and quiet. Not many occupants in the other units.

Gorgeous condo, stunning views, great town!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in Mexico, and I am so glad we chose to stay in Puerto Escondido at Casa Rebecca, rather than some all-inclusive in the overly touristy areas of Mexico.

Casa Rebecca provided everything we needed for a wonderful beach vacation. Stunning views from the balcony or palapa, or from the pool, which in the low season, was practically our own private pool! There was air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room so the condo was always a great escape from the hot, sunny, humid climate (which we didn't mind when we were lying on the beautiful beaches of PE!)

We chose to eat out most of the time, because PE has some AMAZING food, but the condo was stocked with everything we needed if we wanted to cook, and there was a great market and supermarket a short cab ride away to get supplies.

Maid came twice during our stay and cleaned the place top to bottom while we were at the pool or the beach. All the appliances functioned well, and it was great having a washer and dryer!

When we came back from the beach covered in sand and sunscreen, the HUGE two-head shower in the master bath was a treat. My only gripe is the water never seemed to get beyond just less than cold, but it wasn't a huge issue for us since we were always jumping in the shower after a hot day outside.

Staying at Casa Rebecca felt like we were in a luxury resort, but minus luxury prices and in a nice, laid-back town where prices are not inflated as they are in Acapulco/Cabo/Cancun.

The condo is short walk to what became my favorite beach in PE - Playa Carizalillo. It's small, the waters are calm enough to swim in, it's surrounded by GORGEOUS vegetation, and the people who own the restaurants and surf school/rental places on the beach are super nice and accommodating.

The condo is also a short walk to the Rinconada, with plenty of shops and wonderful restaurants. Cabs are easy to grab (and cheap!) if you want to visit the other beaches like Zicatela, or Pto Angelito.

You have to go through a couple locked gates to get to the door of your condo, so safety was never a concern - nor was it a concern for us anywhere we went in PE. Nina, the property manager was readily available to help us with whatever we needed, and she ensured our comfort during our stay (and even checked in with us a few days into the trip).

I've read with Mexico, sometimes what you see in a listing is not what you get - that was not the case with Casa Rebecca. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Amazing place! You'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place complete with oceanfront views and an fantastic rooftop area with comfortable seating and a hammock. Very clean and a terrific place to relax and enjoy. When you get hot just take a swim in the pool! Within easy walking distance to restaurants and beaches. No car is necessary as the taxis are extremely reasonable for venturing out. Thomas, the owner, was great to work with. We would highly recommend this property! There were 5 of us that thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect for a relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was fantastic. With wonderful views, great location and beautifully appointed, this had everything we could have asked for for our holiday. Felt very safe and swimming beach within 5 minutes walk. Our local contact was most helpful in suggested places to visit and eateries. Would go back in a flash. Phill and Sue- Australia

Wouldn't Change a Thing

  • 5 of 5

This property Casa Rebecca is even more beautiful in person than the pictures can show. My wife and I stayed there the month of February 2015. We were met upon arrival by a very nice young gentleman who helped us with our luggage and gave us a tour of the inside area the private Palapa area, and the out side pool area. Shortly after he left the property manager Nina came to explain the area and help us get connected to their Wi Fi she was available our whole stay to answer any questions very helpful. WE had maid service twice a week in which we were able to choose the time and days. This is a very safe and well lit gated property. Location is excellent for a variety of dining and cab access. Sunsets up on the top Palapa are like no other. WE were able to spot Whales and dolphins on several occasions very entertaining. When Thomas rents his property you are truly his guest he makes sure every detail is perfect . My wife and I have been vacationing for over 30 years and this is truly one of our nicest experiences.
