- A garden with a grill
- A Palapa (palm-shelter) with common areas and dining tables

Interaction with Guests

Guests will interact with Obelisk's staff. I act as a manager for the house so, although you will probably not see me (I don't live in Acapulco), you can contact me any time for any major inquiries.

The fare includes full staff (3-5 people) so that you don't have to worry about tidying up or cooking (unless you want to). The wonderful crew will make sure all your needs are met and that your vacation is amazing.

The house chef can cook any of the vast amount of recipes she knows, such as Huevos Rancheros and Chilaquiles (breakfast), Ceviche and Fish Tacos (Lunch), and Shrimp or Clam Spaghetti (Dinner), among dozens of other dishes. For food, all groceries can be bought (at your expense) by Israel (house manager) or by yourself, as you prefer.

The Neighborhood

The house is located at the highly guarded and luxurious Fraccionamiento Las Brisas, where many artists and businessmen have vacation homes. Las Brisas has a Club house at 3 min drive (10 min walk) from Casa Obelisk, where house-guests are allowed to use the Gym as well as the pool and other facilities (tennis and paddle tennis courts).

Although most of the time can be spent in the house, we can also recommend dozens of local restaurants, as well as other outings.

Getting around

For transport it is best to do so in Taxi cabs. The house manager, Israel, can recommend this and other means of transportation.

Other Things to Note

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the house/Acapulco safe?

Obelisk is located within Fraccionamiento Las Brisas, a highly guarded private residential area. In the 20+ years our family has owned Obelisk, we've never ever had any security (email hidden) is safe to say you can sleep with no worries.
Acapulco is a city of contrasts, and general intuition guidelines apply. Just like everywhere in the world, avoid being in shady neighbourhoods, especially late at night. But no need to worry, the house staff can guide you where not to go. Granted, there's plenty more safe and enjoyable places than you can imagine.

How far from the beach?

We believe Obelisk offers THE BEST in Acapulco. It's exactly a mid-point between the old Acapulco Bay and the new Acapulco. It's a 10 min drive to the beach on either side (old or new). Furthermore, it has the panoramic view to classic Acapulco, the one you saw in Elvis movies.

How do I get in/out of the house?

No need to rent a car if you will not be moving much, taxi cabs can be called from the house. If you will be exploring a lot, then driving to Acapulco (4hr drive from Mexico City) or renting a car will be a good idea. Public transport is not recommended from/to Obelisk.

How many rooms/beds are there?

There are 6 guest rooms, and 1 staff room. The staff room can also accommodate children. In total, there are 14 beds. You can see the distribution below:

  • Everything was perfect! The house was just as advertised and the staff was better than you can imagine! Israel and the crew tended to our every need without being to invasive. It was so nice to be able to enjoy Acapulco and not have to worry about anything. I will definitely make a return visit to Acapulco and to Casa Obelisk. Our trip was everything we could have asked for and more thanks to the great house and staff! Thank you Casa Obelisk!

  • La casa Obelisk es el sitio ideal para ir de vacaciones a Acapulco, tiene una vista espectacular y la piscina, Jacuzzi pool bar y las palapas comedores son el lugar ideal para convivir con todos los servicios necesarios para pasarla muy bien.

    La casa esta muy limpia , las habitaciones muy comodas y conserva el sabor del fraccionamiento Las Brisas famoso por sus casas espectaculares.

    Pero lo mas importante es la gente que trabaja ahi que se esmeran al maximo por dar un servicio de exelencia, desde que llegamos fuimos recibidos con toda amabilidad por Israel, el gerente, y desde ahi nos sentimos en casa. Daniel nos atendio de maravilla haciendo los mejores cocteles en la alberca, Ademas fueron muy eficientes proponiendo menus y ellos se encargaban de hacer las compras para que el Chef Ramon nos cocinara platillos exquisitos,

    En fin no pudimos regresar mas contentos de nuestra experiencia, no nos hacia falta salir de la casa ,

    Recomiendo ampliamente esta casa donde pasaran unos dias inolvidables, Enrique y su gran equipo siempre estuvieron atentos para que la pasaramos de maravilla!!!

    Response from Enrique:

    Muchas gracias por tus comentarios Paulina. Israel y Daniel son excelentes personas, y que bueno que lo vieron reflejado en el servicio. El chef Ramón definitivamente le compite a cualquier cocina de un restaurante en Acapulco! Que bueno que les gustó la experiencia, y con gusto de recibirlos en cuanto puedan nuevamente.
