In 33 years of travel, this is the only place I have ever booked ahead. I sure was not disappointed! It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Patrick responded immediately and was able to confirm my booking within hours. His communication was first rate and he arranged a lovely local concierge, Carolyn, to escort us to the casita and settle us in. She came by on subsequent days to ensure our stay was going well. Casa de Colores itself is a wonderful house (very charming, clean, well-equipped, beautifully functional, well located in a tiny Mexican neighbourhood). My 8 year-old son and I were completely at home and loved our 12 days there. The families around the house are great - very friendly and helpful and to our delight they had grandchildren the age of my son over for the holidays so the kids had a great time together for many days. It is really quiet there, with just the sound of the river, chickens and roosters, and quiet local life. It's awesome that there are no cars to be found, but if you leave the door open, the chickens will come in. That's the line that really sold me on the place. I made an excellent decision to rent Casa de los Colores. I hope to be back next year! Thank you Patrick!
The Casa is really beautiful! My boyfriend and I stayed there for Christmas and really loved having our own place!
The handbook provided by Patrick and Erin is long- but really very helpful!
We would recommend getting there first and seeing what stuff might have been left by previous guests before buying food shopping- also there are plenty of local shops to get everything you need. The neighbours are friendly, and it's a nice location to be based at to walk around Yelapa. I highly recommend doing yoga at the Sky Temple or even just walking up there for the experience!
The bright colours of the house are lovely, and the house is well equipped for stuff you would need to be self sufficient in terms of cooking.
We would definitely go back!!
Thanks so much Patrick and Erin for sharing your beautiful casa with us!
