“Amazing views and wonderful Family”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

The Garcias rentals are in the perfect location. It is a short walk to town or to the beach and the views are amazing! The houses are very nice and comfortable. The est part about staying here is the service. The Garcia family is very helpful and friendly and they work very hard to make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend their houses especially for first timers!

I love to stay at the Garcia's. The location is perfect. It is right where the beach, the path to town and the path upriver intersect. All units look over the beach and upriver. The view is spectacular, as well as continually fascinating. In the morning, egrets, herons and pelicans fish for food, the fisherman try to navigate the small outlet from the river to the ocean, the pie ladies come out to sell pies and the happy Yelapa dogs play on the beach. The sound of the waves is a continual back drop. The units are open air, which made the relationship with the surroundings even more intimate. It gave me a sense of peace and freedom. The units have everything you might need and are quite attractive. I found the bed very comfortable. The Garcia's is a family business that is very accommodating and helpful with anything that you might need.

The Garcia Family was very hospitable. This was our first time to Yelapa, and we were not sure what to expect. As soon as we got off the water taxi, there was someone from Garcia there ready to assist us with our luggage. Our room was nice. The beds were quite stiff, but we did not expect much different. The view is outstanding, beach access just steps away from the room, and everyone who we met working for the Garcia Rentals were super accomodating. I would definitely recommend Vista del Mar to people looking to visit Yelapa.

The view overlooking the river delta, the beach, and the ocean is not only spectacular, but it's also really interesting. Watch the fishermen come and go, the many species of birds, the river rising and draining through the narrow canal, people strolling, parasailers gliding by, the sunrise and sunset.....daily life unfolds before you. You'll never find a better view whether you're preparing a meal in the kitchen or relaxing in the hammock. Eric and Eve were super helpful and friendly. The location of Garcia Rentals provides convenient access directly onto the beach from the lower entrance, and directly onto the path to town from the upper entrance. We really enjoyed the constant sound of waves crashing on the beach; some people find it too loud at night, but we prefer it to the loud music you may encounter in the town itself.

Room Tip: The sound of waves crashing on shore is wonderful....but it can seem really loud at night. If this i...

Yelapa itself is amazing but I believe our experience there was even better thanks to the Garcia family.

Our flight was very late and we would have missed the last water taxi if it had not been for the pre-arranged taxi set up with Garcias. Upon arrival someone was waiting at the dock to help us with our luggage and show us to our room. The room was clean and the sound of the waves was so relaxing.

Casas Garcia is right on the beach with a short walk into town. The Garcia brothers had plenty of recommendations for places to eat but you can also cook right in your room if you prefer. I liked that your room was never entered while you were not there, anything you might need is left at your door so you always have privacy.

Room Tip: Vista Hermosa was perfect for 2 but could have easily slept 3!

If you're hankering for the sound of ocean waves, warm breezes and the view to go with it, you gotta go here. It's like living outside but with all the comforts of home. Clean, simple yet styling' to the Mexican groove. The brothers are fun to get to know, so helpful and personable. Right on top of the beach and the river outlet where the birds love to congregate and the pangas moving in and out, you can watch the activities in the little Yelapa Bay from the hammock in your room, or you can get right down into it and join the fun. Or a quick little walk takes you winding through the maze of the town and discover all sorts of little delights. Don't miss breakfast at Bahia Cafe! Can't wait to go back next year….
