We loved Casa Descalza it was more than we expected. The location of the villa is incredible with the ocean on your door step and awesome scenes of wildlife that inhabit it. The accommodation is amazing, there is a surreal experience when you sit out in the evening having your dinner and the ocean is your uninterrupted view, its like being at the movies with this 3D widescreen view that doesn't seem real. You really have to pinch yourself and be reminded that you are witnessing the wonderful array of scenes that come before you. But the icing on the cake are the staff, they really make a huge difference from catering and attending to all our needs. They are AMAZING...,,, they made such a difference to our vacation. We stayed in the villa for 4 weeks and never wanted to leave any day even for sightseeing or eating out, CASA DESCALZA was too good to leave. Our vacation was wonderful a very different experience from any other place we visited before and one we will never forget.

We are a family of 16 who just returned from Casa Descalza for a week stay over Christmas. Remember when the customs officer in Mexico tells you to save the bottom of your custom form or you will not be allowed to leave?? Well, all 16 of us wanted to lose our forms. We had an absolutely wonderful time. We have 3 families of 5 each with "kids" ranging from 14-26 and our mother. The house is set up so well for large families and we spent all of our time in the open air living area/ the pool/ and the beach. It was the perfect setting for everyone to be together but with plenty of space to get your alone time. The staff (which doesn't seem like the right word since they felt more like family) were amazing. We swore they were mind readers. The minute you even thought about cold water, coffee or a margarita it magically appeared. Daniel, the house manager, is a gem--kind, accomodating and can get you anything you need/want. You can tell what a special relationship the staff has amongst themselves which makes the house so warm and inviting.
Food was fantastic--we just met with Daniel and came up with menus and then were incredibly spoiled by just sitting down and enjoying. It was an special treat for us not to have to shop, cook and do dishes! Tortilla soup, lentil soup, ceviche and lemon ice pie were the favorites-but everything was delicious!
The villa itself is wonderful--decorated beautifully, very comfortable. They had poinsiettias all along the walk leading up to the main room and on the table. Since we were a large group they moved the small table to the large table every night to accomodate us all at one table for dinner which was so nice. The staff work so hard--towels out every morning, sweeping the deck, cleaning the pool, preparing our meals, cleaning the rooms daily.. I'm sure the owners know how lucky they are to have such wonderful group of people looking after their house and their guests.
We will be back--can't imagine any other place quite as special. Thanks to Daniel and everyone for an unforgettable week. The Ryan, Davis, Spiller and Squier families

Heaven! Whatever we wanted, it was offered here. Whether we wanted to go for a massage, kayaking, surfing or whale watching, Daniel organized it for us. But the best part was relaxing on the beach. I mean, WOW! Endless beaches in both directions 50m in front of property. Palm trees and oceanfront breezes add to the feeling of serenity. We felt completely without worry at the Casa.
The meals Adelina prepared were worthy of a fine restaurant. Lunch or dinner she always prepared something delicious.
Unfortunately, no direct flights from Canada. But that meant fewer tourists and more beach for us. Truly a hidden gem.
Really enjoyed Casa Descalza!
