Casa Jill is a very charming house. It is big and bright with the necessary to spend a nice vacation. It would have been better to have a table and chairs outside to enjoy the backyard.
The check-in and checkout were easily processed by Lucy.
The neighborhood is quiet, it is nice to be away from the very busy touristic area but still close enough to have plenty of bars and restaurants easily accessible. Having the laundry and supermarket very close was helpful as we stayed for one month. Also a 10 minute walk to the beach is very pleasant.
It is not the comfort of a brand new condo but is great for backpackers and a more local experience.
Hi Yohann thanks for your review, I wil l take in count your feed back about the chairs and table in the back yard, also I just check the information about the bed and it doesn´t say that is a queen bed as you mentioned so is still mentioning is a double bed and the address actually says 1 bis sur however thanks for getting me check on that. I hope you can come back any time
Casa Jill is such a lovely organic space. Birds singing in the morning, sipping coffee in the beautiful lush garden among a variety of vegetation including a banana tree was such a treat. The wi-fi and cable television were a real bonus!
The neighborhood was friendly and close to everything, walking everywhere was a breeze......we were living among the locals, shopping at the corner fruit and vegetable market, enjoying meals at many of the neighborhood Cocinas, the Lavendaria, all just minutes from the front door.
The beach, 5th Avenue, Super market, bus station and collectivos were all within a short walk.
Thank you Lucy and Liliana for making my stay at Casa Jill enjoyable and comfortable. Lucy met me at the house upon arrival to Playa like clockwork, and me me feel right at home. Both Liliana and Lucy made checking out on my last day simple and very easy.
I look forward to my stay at Casa Jill next year!
We were a group of 3 friends that stayed in this house for 3 days.We were all super dissapointed by everything.Firstly finding the house is already a nightmare.Even locals dont know the address.Actually the address posted is wrong which is something that the property manager told us as an excuse(!)for making us wait in the street for over half an hour with the temperature being super hot.Then the house part.The house is NOT HOW IT LOOKS IN THE PICS.Its a big condo but the owner divides it into 3 parts and we got one basically sharing with two other families.You cant sleep even cause of the sound of the people next to us walking and talking (website hidden) is also dirty and its evident that it hasnt been taken care of for some time.Pillows were dirty and obviously unwashed and we had to use towels for pillows.There were no towels at all as we entered and after waiting for more than 1 hour a guy showed up with just 2 towels.Bare in mind we were in a hurry so that frustrated us a lot.Next day the towel guy said he would be there at 10 but showed up at 13:00 with just 3 face towels!!The sofa downstairs described as a sofa bed is exactly NOT THAT!There was no pillow or sheets even so I also had to use a towel and the sofa was one of the most uncomfortable sofas ever as in the middle it has the iron base so it feels like you re sleeping on rocks.The mosquito fence door was broken so we had all sorts of insects in the house.Outside the house there was a horrible smell of garbage and dead rats cause of the big garbage bin left unwashed forever which smell reached the house.Hot water runs fast so we had to take cold showers all the time.Most of the plugs didnt work.This place is definitely not for 3 people!!Wifi connection is super slow also.The house is supposedly in the city centre but thats far from true.You need at least 15-20 min to walk to the 5 avenue and at the very beginning of it and another extra 10 mins for the beach!Overall this property's value for money is horrible as for the same amount you can get new awesome houses literally in the city centre.
Hi Paschalis, I am really surprised about your review, first because Lucy our concierge gave you the address and location and we cannot control if the taxi drivers don`t know the area. In second hand the place you stay it is a private house, but it also has a studio and an apartment separated and private, you never share space with the other guest, the only thing that is shared is the internet and the gas and were the other guest that complain about your noise due they live long term in the place. The house is 5 minutes walking to 5th avenue and the beach as other clients have put in their reviews before and I am not sure why when you left the house didn`t mentioned anything about your inconformity about the cleaning that was made the day you arrived and when Lucy asked if all was ok you told her that everything was perfect, at least you should mention us something and gave us a chance to improve whatever can be fixed, I am sorry you feel that way usually our guest leave very happy from this house. I hope you can give us a chance some other time.
The place is amazing inside, very big and cool authentic mexican vibes. Main issue I would say though was the small and very uncomfortable bed hardly fit my friend and I. Also the area could be a little sketchy at times and I kept had trouble finding the place but all in all - a good experience
Lili et Lucy ont assuré un accueil professionnel. La maison est agréable et confortable. Je recommande cette option.
The house is huge and has more electrical outlets than anyone would ever need. The house is well stocked with everything we needed. The location was convenient with a few minute walk to the beach or the supermarket. We would stay again here in the future but there are some things to be aware of. The location of the house is very difficult to find initially. We had two tour operators pick us up and both could not find the house. Make sure to have detailed directions before you arrive and having a cell phone in case you get lost to call Lucy, the concierge . The front gate lock did not open for us once and we had to climb the fence to get in. I guess this has happened before because the owner responded promptly by email and explained how to fix it. On the last day, we ran out of gas so the stove did not work and we had no hot water although this probably is not a usual occurrence.
Hi Todd, thanks for your review, regarding the points you mentioned about the location I just have to say that I alway sent the location in google maps in order to make it easier to get there aswell as the complete address, unfortunatelly the taxi drivers are not prepared or doesn`t know all the locations and that is completelly out of our control. Regarding the front gate this was the first time this happen and I just figured out by logic that the button was locked probably by the other tenants that are staying in the apartment next door however I will keep this in ming for future guest to prevent them at arrival. Also the gas as you say is not usual too so sorry for that inconvenience too.
I've used Airbnb heaps of times in lots of different cities and countries - Iceland, Sweden, North Carolina - and this was hands down, my best experience. The house is perfect for someone who has outgrown hostels and couchsurfing but isn't really interested in fancy hotels. It's a gorgeous space, conveniently located, and Lucy was incredibly helpful. When we couldn't find the corkscrew she actually lent us hers!
