We rented three units from Mark and his family for Christmas and New Years 2008. Mark was a stand out when scouting something different than the Hotels on La Madera Beach, love that beach.. The best vibes were from Mark. His command of Spanish and English is a great asset. We handled our reservations via the Internet and then paid over time with PayPal. If you have never been to Mexico you have to think manana or tomorrow. Mark may not get back to you in what you consider to be “prompt”.
We arrived late, after dark, and were met by Mark in bare feet as usual. He helped us carry our bags to our rooms and gave us a quick tour. We dropped our bags and scrambled down the hill for dinner at Rufos (with the dogs) with our local friend Carlos, owner of Platinum. Make sure you visit his silver shop on the beach downtown. We all believe each of us had the best room at the Bungalows. In general I would say if you are looking for a down home experience and don’t need heavy maintenance you will enjoy this property. If garden snakes, iguanas, fruit bats, regular bats, cutter ants, humming birds, chickens, roosters crowing, and other crawlies bother you head for the concrete of Ixtapa. The dead tree at the bottom of the property fills with birds, I saw seven different birds at one time. Personally I enjoyed the pool the most, with so few people staying at this property you feel like it is your personal pool. The only down side of this and any property in this area is the hill. You have to walk up or down either way you look at it. A cab is always an option, but unless you are in really bad shape it’s not an issue. This property has an upper and lower entrance with key pad access. You can walk back from town along the concrete beach path or hoof it on the cobblestone road by the canal. Would I stay here again, in a minute.
