We arrived to German and Maria greeting us with margaritas, fresh made chips, guacamole and salsa. German immediately brought in our luggage and gave us a tour of the home. The pictures do not do it justice. Very clean and beautiful. The pool was fantastic and we spent most days hanging around the house enjoying Maria's cooking and the beautiful weather. We were not sure about having German and Maria around as we were looking forward to quiet time and not used to being waited on. They are so unobtrusive that you hardly know they are there until they appear to ask if you would like another margarita or a snack. (Yes, please!) We asked to have our last day alone and we did not see them the entire day except when German appeared to set up a fire and chairs for us on the beach at sunset. We are big dog lovers so having Pero and Tunda around made us very comfortable. Both are sweet animals and well behaved. German helped us arrange for a private, poolside couples massage, which was one of the highlights. Very reasonably priced. Maria's cooking is authentic and ready almost to the minute when you request it. Air conditioning in master bedroom worked very well for keeping us comfortable at night and the rest of the house seemed to be fine temperature wise throughout the day. We spent a couple mornings in Sayulita and the surrounding towns and had a great time shopping and having breakfast. We started referring to Maria and German as ninjas because they seemed to appear exactly when you were thinking about more ice, a cool drink or some delicious fresh made bean dip! The drive in from the airport was easier than we expected and driving "down the creek" to get to the house was fun. You would be fine in a regular car, we did not need to 4 wheel drive we rented. I would not suggest you go for more than a day without Maria and German around as you could see how the dust and crabs would quickly get out of hand without their constant attention to these things. I have never seen so many crabs in one place! Thousands! They were fun to observe. We did not have a problem with bugs at any point. I was concerned about the pool not being heated but it turned out not to be an issue as the intense sun warmed it sufficiently. On the plane ride home we could not find one thing about this property that would prevent us from returning each year. It was only two of us but 6 would have been comfortable. I cannot properly express how much we would recommend this rental.
