About Kathy Young

I am a 75 year old grandmother, who is soon to be a great grandmother. I have been coming to Mexico for 50 years. I love Mexico. I grew up in Lubbock, TX and have been in Odessa, Texas for all of my married life. I am a big Texas Tech fan.

Kathy Young purchased this villa in 1986

Why Kathy Young chose Nayarit

I was one of the original owners in Punta del Burro. When you see the area, you will know why I fell in love with it. I bought it when there was hardly anything there. Now we have cobbled stone roads, underground utilities and 24 hour security. We have all the bells and whistles.

You have just found the most PERFECT vacation spot in all of Mexico! Book your stay at Case de las Abuelas now! Even though this was our 4th time to be there, it was new to the rest of our family (3 couples, & 3 teenage grandchildren). We enjoyed the gracious hospitality of Baly and Juan, of course. They are special people and will make your visit special as well. The house, itself, is charming, the pool is delightful, and the setting on the beach could not be more perfect. You may believe the reviews! No one could rate this adventure any less than "Excellent" ! Enjoy your stay!

We have been visiting Casa de las Abuelas with friends for several years and each trip has been incredible. The combination of a great house with a perfect common area and pool, as well as the hammocks on under the palapa at the beach for afternoon siestas, and incredible surf breaks on the quite private beach make Abuelas a perfect getaway.

Juan and Bali also both make for a seamless vacation. Juan is great—resourceful, reliable and accommodating—and Bali is a wonderful chef with so much great, authentic local fare up her sleeve as well as good options for kids. Each experience is unique and wonderful. I give Casa de las Abuelas my highest recommendation.

Favorite Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this place. Juan and Bali do an incredible job of providing attentive, but never intrusive service that really makes this a stress free destination.

The house itself is charming, comfortable, and has everything you need. Everything is well-maintained and has an authentic feel. The pool area is very nice, and the dining area is a fantastic central gathering / eating spot with an amazing view. Local restaurants are very accessible, and Sayulita is a short, scenic drive away.

I can't say enough about the service, and the magic feeling of the home. If you are looking for an incredible value, this is the spot. Kathy is delightful to deal with and makes sure you are taken care of. She's well-integrated and well-respected in the community.

I will continue coming here with friends and family as long as Kathy will allow me. I wish I could give it 6 stars, and feel free to reach out to me for more unbiased feedback. My only apprehension is that it becomes increasingly popular and tough to book....

Service was over the top

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our vacation. Juan is really an amazing person. From the moment he picked us up at the airport he was all smiles and jokes. He made us feel comfortable and nothing was a problem. We had a large group 11 in total and he handled us well. Bailey cooked breakfast and dinner for us. Its truly amazing and there was always plenty of food. From standard American fare of bacon, eggs and pancakes to more Mexican style cooking she handled it all effortlessly. Be very careful of Juans margaritas for happy hour. You will be flat on your face after a few of those. The rooms were great and the house worked really well for us. There are only reason I am not giving this rental five stars. First, there was a wedding the night before we arrived. When we got there decorations were still up everywhere along with broken glass and lots of trash on the beach. Someone in my group immediately stepped on a piece of glass and hurt their foot. Had they hired someone to come and rack the beach, clean up the trash and take down the decorations it would have presented much nicer as a first impression. It felt like we had crashed a party the day after. The 2nd reason is that the chairs around the pool really need to be replaced. Since you spend so much time sitting on them its a bummer that some were broken and unusable. Both of these issues really didn't do much by way of making this anything less than a stellar experience. Go for the service...especially if you have kids and don't want to cook its super easy to just sit back relax and let Juan and Bailey do their thing. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: I just read your review. I'm terribly sorry, but I was assured that the beach would be cleaned up. I was at the wedding and it was a beautiful wedding and lots of fun, but I didn't know they didn't get it cleaned up. The decorations were my fault. I told them to leave them up as they were so wonderful. We have had new chairs ordered for the longest time and they haven't come in. All of the colors are brown now and that doesn't fit my decor. I try to keep everything in perfect shape. Again, please accept my apologies.

We have been staying here for ten + years and absolutely love it. Juan and Bali are fantastic and the location is out of this world. The beach is incredibly beautiful and tranquil. A beach lover's dream!

We've just returned from a great family vacation at Casa de las Abuelas. What a perfect spot for family fun. The kids loved the ocean and pool and the weather was so delightful that the adults enjoyed relaxing under the palapa. Juan and Bali were wonderful hosts, cooks and caretakers. We loved gathering around the table each morning to enjoy a breakfast feast. We took the kids into Nueva Vallarta to swim with dolphins and spent a day on the Alley Cat, a catamaran charter out of La Cruz. Juan made all arrangements for us. There are great restaurants nearby. These excursions were certainly allot of fun, but what I'll remember most are the times we spent at home in our lovely Casa. It's a perfect balance of serenity, comfort, beauty and whimsy. I just couldn't be happier.

Punta del Burro is a beautiful, safe, gated community on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. This will be one of the most relaxing vacations with Juan and Baly cooking, making drinks and taking care of you. You will never want to leave.
