Casa Monica is really a small two bedroom one bath apartment built over the garage of the proprietor's house. It has a huge roof deck which is great for viewing the constant tide motion on Cholla Bay and the birds that follow the tides. This is not a good swimming beach but it is good for shelling and clamming. Gretchen...

After reading all these wonderful reviews what more can I say. Staying at Casa Monica is a must!! Gretchen Ellinder is a gracious host!! The only problem I had was finding a way to contact her, but now that I have I will share with you this hidden treasure of Cholla Bay. You can contact Gretchen at 602-412-3311. Make your...

I booked here based on other TripAdvisor reviews and was very pleased. You get plenty of room (essentially an apartment plus a huge deck with great view over the bay), very clean rooms (big points for my wife), great decorating (bright Mexican colors), and great food for breakfast (fried plantains, mangoes and such). I would definitely book here again.

What a wonderful place for our family to relax. The calm water of Cholla Bay was perfect for our two year old daughter and Gretchen, the host, was amazing. She was warm and inviting and made us feel at home. The casita was beautifully decorated in local style and the breakfast was abundant and delicious. An excellent place to go...

This is a wonderful B&B located right on the bay. Great hospitality. It was a very warm and friendly environment. The accommodations were nice. The breakfasts were fantastic. Meeting the owner was like meeting a long-time dear friend. We joined the other guests for a fun-filled day of riding Quads. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Cholla Bay in Puerto Penasco, Mexico did not conjure up very good images for me. I had been to Rocky Point and my impression was that Cholla Bay would be a dusty dirty little village full of rowdy people. Absolutely not so. Cholla Bay is lovely, the little town is quite charming, and Casa Monica is an absolute FIND! We...

we headed here after a few days in Phoenix, what a contrast. Choya Bay is a great place to relax after the horrible urban sprawl of Phoenix(sorry very souless place - no redeeming features). After a fantastic breakfast of fresh fruits, french toast, amazing potatoes, egg which tasted like eggs used to taste, we walked across the bay when the...

My family stayed at the Casa Monica B&B in Cholla (or Choya) Bay Oct of 2005. What a place!! We found it totally by pure dumb luck, searching for a place to stay on a whim and saw the sign, stopped to ask about vacancy and we are now permanently hooked! Cost is $95 per night per bedroom, with a...
