Some quotes from past clients.

“I loved this house! We spent countless hours sitting in front of the massive window in the living area just staring out at the view. In the morning, there were lots of colourful birds flying by and although we couldn’t see the actual sun setting directly into the sea, you could still enjoy the vibrantly coloured afterglow projected across the sky. The palapa look-out on the roof had a hammock and was also a nice place to lie and read. Also appreciated was the refreshing plunge pool. After walking up hill from the beach, it was always the first stop before climbing the stairway to the house. Although there is a small casita on the property which is rented out, it’s close proximity to the main house does not infringe on privacy in any way. This home was the perfect sanctuary to escape to from the ice and snow. The design elements, tile work and colour palettes were very pleasing. The house has an eclectic feel, mixing rustic wood and wrought iron with, bright, vivid colours. Communicating with the property manager Jaunee and her team was easy and efficient for check in, and check out. She is warm, friendly and helpful and I would re-book again in a heartbeat if I was heading back this way.” Jan 2019, Michele

The walk to and from Casa Piedra Del Mar is a grounding part of being here. The handmade tile stairwells lead to the many levels of carefully chosen artisan and local touches that add a true Mexican feel to every space. Most often, if we are hot or just tired from long walks on the beach, a stop and plunge in the cool infinity pool is almost better than our nightly margarita!
You can feel the thoughtfulness of John and Gus. This is their home, it feels like they really love being here, but also to share it with others(like me!).

The kitchen is well equipped for a little cooking, though the restaurants in town are wonderful and diverse. Bedding invites restful nights. There is a genuine feel of respect for community and love of Mexican artists everywhere you look. I barely want to leave and find the peace I long for right here.

Everyone who visits spends hours in front of the gorgeous giant window where wild parrots and birds greet the day. The twinkle of lights and the best seats for the expansive sunset are right here and yours in this beautiful casita.

I love La Manzanilla and have stayed in numerous places. For me, Nothing compares to Casa Piedra del Mar. I’m already checking open dates/flights so I can return to this very beautiful place.

Gracias❤️ Jan 2019, Jesse
