About Susan Crist

We built our casa here in Saladita to share with family and friends. We and our family are avid surfers and now have 8 grandchildren who are learning to surf as well.

Susan Crist purchased this House in 2007

Why Susan Crist chose La Unión de Isidoro Montes de Oca

The location, 30 minutes from Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, is convenient but removed enough on a fairly undeveloped stretch of Pacific Coast. We have full time neighbors on each side of us. We came for the great year round surfing with low crowds.

What makes this House unique

Warm year round temperatures with light afternoon and evening breezes make this an ideal warm weather vacation spot. Water temperatures vary from 75- 85 degrees. Daily maid service is included in your stay. Surf lessons , prepared meals, babysitting and in home masseuse can be arranged upon request. Wi-fi and AT&T cell service is available at this location.

                                                                    Marcela F.

                                                                    Wi-Fi, not really, we have to go to a restaurant and pay for the Wi-Fi.

                                                                    We were told that once we used all the two rolls of toilet paper we need to go and buy toilet paper, really? after how much we paid we have to buy our toilet paper in the middle of our stay. Don't forget to buy your toilet paper at Mega supermarket.

                                                                    Also, the kitchen needs a deep cleaning.

                                                                    Great location, clean and comfortable.

                                                                    We had a wonderful two weeks staying here with our 3 children. The house is spacious and well kept. The beds are very comfortable. The owner was very good about communication and answering all our questions. We really enjoyed the location of the house, close enough to walk to the surf but out of the of more busy part of Saladita. The caretakers are amazing! They were very kind and helpful and did a wonderful job of keeping the house clean for us.

                                                                    Great vacation spot

                                                                    lois n.BC Canada

                                                                    Love this beautiful casa, could use a little updating in some areas but the grounds keeper works hard everyday to maintain the beautiful place. We will definitely be back we had an amazing time here ! Such a great layout for a group or friends to hang out and chill.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Thanks for your review . After a busy rental season , we are coming to our Casa to make much needed improvements and repairs on the property this April.

                                                                    Beautiful beachfront property with open concept kitchen and living space, pool, and path to beach

                                                                    jeff s.

                                                                    Property was very clean and as described. Susan was very responsive to our communications and helped fix an issue with the wifi that we experienced immediately. One great benefit of the property is a large assortment of surfboards for use which saves the need to ship one's own or rent. Very gracious of the hosts to provide such a varied quiver for guests' use! I highly recommend this rental for larger groups or the smaller one below for a couple.

                                                                    Exceeded our Expectations

                                                                    Kerry B.

                                                                    Casa Crist truly exceeded our expectations. My husband and I frequent the area and have rented many other homes. Casa Crist delivers exactly how the owner, Susan describes. The caretakers, Alfonso and Alicia by far the best, most polite and friendly caretakers in the area. They made sure each day, if all is was "todo bien?" Since we ended up going with a group, we also rented the Casita below, Casa Bodhichitta, which we also highly recommend as well. The owner, Susan, was very easy to communicate with and attended to all questions with caring detail. In the beginning, we were hesitant about the open air and no AC....but it was perfecto. At times, we had to turn the fan off at night because it was a little chilly. The décor is authentic. The views are amazing. The pool was perfect. The grounds gave a feeling of true authentic Mexico...just beautiful. I will add, there was a lot more space than I had expected. Sometimes when looking at pictures, the perspective is difficult to grasp with homes. This Casa delivered so much space, the group never was in each others way. We also recommend Elena to cook. We requested her to cook the first night, and it was by far the best meal with plenty of left overs. We also met Johnny Rumbo. Although we did not rent a car, his prices are the best. The internet worked very well. Completely safe and super relaxing. If you chat with Susan, you will be at ease immediately. This is how she has set her Casa up and what a wonderful dreamy environment. Casa Crist delivers more space, better caretakers, and the most beautiful grounds around. If you are with a group, renting out the Casa and Casita below are well worth the price. The pool is shared between the Casa and Casita, which is usually fine...but something to consider if you are truly looking for the ultimate privacy for a reasonable cost. This place was well worth the money. Thank you Susan. I appreciate your communication and I will recommend your Casa to many. Pura Vida. Gracias

                                                                    really enjoyed it

                                                                    john m.Venice, CA

                                                                    The main house and lower casita are great. Beautiful clean property on the beach. Nicely decorated. Main house - Love the outdoor space (kitchen, dining space and living room). Great location... short walk to surf break. Downside... no rooms have air conditioning. It would be nice if at least the have upper bedrooms had A/C so that you can escape the heat. All rooms have fans... but not sufficient when it is really hot. P.s. the owner is very friendly and helpful. And the local property caretaker is also friendly.
