It consists of one open plan bedroom with double bed, full bathroom, large covered terrace/balcony with seating area and sofa bed, hammock and full kitchen. Cable Internet/WIFI and hot water.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfect spot! Just as it looks in the pictures (if not better), well-equipped, clean and lovely. Sharon was a great friend and a fantastic hostess who stocked up my fridge before I got there and even took me along to see the sandcastle contest in Manzanillo. Highly recommended.

  • Great flat, great location, this was the perfect place for us to make the most of our stay in Malpais. Sharon went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel comfortable and help us with our travel arrangements. Can highly recommend the local horse riding. We hope to come back!

  • A beautiful apartment with everything you need. Sharon is helpful with arranging taxi's and with any questions you may have throughout your stay. The location is out of town a bit so it is a peaceful sleep, no bars or loud music to keep you up. About a minute down the road and you'll be at a tide pool and if you continue to walk about 10-15 minutes down the beach you'll get to playa carmen where there are no rocks so you can swim in the ocean and also rent surf boards, go to a restaurant, bank, shopping etc. If you want to be right in the middle of the action without having to walk much this isn't the place for you, but if you don't mind being secluded a little you'll love it. The apartment really is perfect, it's very open concept and full of fresh air. We stayed for almost three weeks and didn't want to leave. If you love dogs it's a bonus to have two friendly pups to greet you every time you come home.

  • Great stay at a lovely apartment just a few minutes walk to the beach. Sharon was so kind to stock our fridge with a few breakfast essentials for our first morning and provided information on routes and the area and also gave us our privacy and space to just enjoy the apartment. Would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

  • I absolutely loved staying at Sharon's apartment. It is so much more then an apartment. First off Sharon is so lovely. So easy to communicate with, open, friendly and so available to help in anyway. She fully stocked my fridge with all the essentials so thoughtful.
    The second floor apartment was so perfect. Open, airy, cozy, comfortable bed, large covered outdoor living room, kitchen that overlooked the garden/jungle where i felt so part if the natural beauty. Often times i would either hang out in the hammock or on the futon couch and listen to the birds, howler monkey's,and horses. Only steps to the beach and a completely wide open vacant beaches once there.
    Mal Pais is a truly special place to visit and when I return this will be my first place of choice to stay once again.
    All in all a perfect experience. I highly recommend staying here with Sharon.

  • We had a great stay at Sharons place! Lucky us, there where some free days after us, so Sharon allowed us to stay longer, than we planned before - and believe me: you wanna stay longer!
    The apartment is perfect! The kitchen has everything you need, the whole apartment is comfy and clean it's totally cosy. The dogs and the little Kitty where the * on it.
    Thanks Sharon! It was a pleasure meeting you!

  • We had a very nice stay and recommend. It was quiet, peaceful and Sharon was intuitive with activities that fit us with our timeframe. the place is modest and homey. We did not want to leave so soon.

  • This place was amazing!! Sharon was really nice and welcoming, she also helped us renting a cuad on his friend shop. She also told us some tips while we were outside driving the cuad. Although on the post doesn't said anything about breakfast, she had a little fridge with some eggs, milk, coffee and some others things for us.
    The place was great and the host was wonderful... Highly recommended! =D
