I only wish it could have been a longer stay.

The house is in a great location in Manzanillo Bay. Carmen's Chile Relleno was fantastic!

I WILL be back!

Even Better Than The Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing like a vacation that exceeds your expectations, especially when they are fairly high going in. We spent two weeks and could have easily stayed two months, the place is so perfect. The first week we had two couples and spent our time surfing out front or just down the beach, lazing in Hammocks, reading books, floating in the pool or splashing in the ocean waves, hitting Rodrigo and Natali's beach bar (Amor Marino Cocktail Bar) for amazing unique cocktails and of course enjoying Carmen's delicious cooking. It was so nice to have the option of having meals cooked for us (and cleaned!) right at the Casa. One night Carmen even organized a local band to come in and play for us during dinner and we turned it in to a bit of a dance party.

The second week we had two couples , each with a young child and even with 6 people the place still felt VERY spacious. Lots of room to find your own spot to chill or the whole group could sit together and watch the beautiful sun sets (while munching on Francisco and Carmen's famous Guacamole and sipping a Margarita). We tried Horseback Riding on the beach with Octavio and the kids loved it so much that we did it again. This place works very well for both adults and kids, our son was asking when we were going to come back before we had even left. The weather was pretty much perfect our entire stay, mid 80 degree air and almost as warm of water - I hope Heaven is just as comfortable. We surfed almost everyday and I will always remember my son's first time on a board with me catching waves at Saladita, a super fun left point break about 20 min. up the road.

We really felt like we had the red carpet rolled out for us by the staff. The owners are so helpful, answered all of our questions and sent us a VERY detailed pre-arrival information pack that includes excellent restaurant recommendations, (we tried several and we were not disappointed - Johnny's On The Beach and Chenchos were tops, and the ice cream and Cafe Sol was delicious). Upon arrival and during our stay, Carmen and Francisco went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had an amazing time, including rescuing us when our car ran out of gas and bringing us special cough medicine for the kids without us even asking for it! We wanted to take them home with us.

Muchas Gracias Casa De Helen for one of the best vacations ever!

You could search the world over and not find a more perfect beach house. Everything everyone has said in these reviews is true. The most beautiful beach, Carmen's cooking, plenty to do or not. I wouldn't change a thing. In fact we're going back again soon.Lets keep it a secret!

Wonderful place and perfect for our stay! We had 4 adults and two children (older) and we all had room to be comfortable, "veg out", just "hang". We all went horseback riding which was really fun and interesting! Carmen was wonderful! Two of us had massages with local masseuses and they were wonderful, outside, couldn't ask for better. We bought bread from the bread lady in the morning, we bought silver from the jewelry man, we walked down the beach to Eden for wonderful meals, enjoyed the pool and some or us practiced our Spanish with Diego. We all wanted to put Pepe the cat in our suitcase & take him home. Arranging taxis was not a problem. One day we may return!

Our stay at Casa De Helen was absolutely without flaw.

The property is wonderful and well situated. Its obvious that it is maintained with loving care.

This was our first trip to this part of the world, usually traveling to Kauai, we will definitely be back!

The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of the beach and home.

Book your trip soon, because if I figure out a way to book 52 weeks a year, you will have to stay somewhere else...
