“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 1 April 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We can’t say enough about Casa de Sonrisas! This was our second time staying here and we are booked again for next year. The casa is lovely, well equipped with everything one would need! We enjoyed the courtyard with a lovely saltwater pool and loungers. The location is perfect, close walking distance to the beach and to town. La Penita has everything to offer, fabulous restaurants, grocery stores, bakery and butcher shops! If you want to truly experience Mexico living, Casa Sonrisas is located on a Mexican residential street where chickens, roosters and dogs roam freely, we loved it! The owner Lissa is always more than accommodating and very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas if you want to be adventurous! Thank you Lissa for another great vacation in your Casa!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 9 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

This was my first stay here and to Mexico. It was amazing. I absolutely loved the drive from the airport to Casa Pacifico. I was amazed at the beautiful garden area by pool side. We stayed in the casita which offered a full kitchen, large bathroom, living/ dining area, and two bedrooms.The unit was clean and furnished with local mexican flare. The owner was very helpful in offering suggestions for area attractions, markets, beaches to visit, and places to eat. One of the best things about casa pacifico is its short walk to the quiet beach. And when I say quiet....it is. There are no vendors always trying to sell you something. Many times when we were there we were the only people on the beach. Wonderful beach to swim or just look out at the ocean. Casa Pacifico is located in a local neighborhood. So you will hear kids playing at the school, chickens, and the waves rolling in. It is also a short walk into town via the streets or the beach. La Penita offers a bank, several grocery markets, restaurants, street taco vendors, and stores. I highly recommend Tiki's restaurant which overlooks the beach. Great food and view. I truely enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend staying here.

“Beautiful Casita close to the beach”
Reviewed 7 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This casita was perfect for us. Decorated with a Mexican vibe, excellently stocked kitchen and a large private balcony. The owner was great, very helpful, she even took us to Los de Marcos one night to release baby turtles. The casita is located directly across from a school, so when school is in you hear the kids playing but when school was out it was very quiet. Loved La Penita, a quiet little town that lets you feel like your in Mexico (in contrast to resorts which are like home just warmer). A variety of restaurants near by. Highly recommend La Vitola (wood fired pizza) and almost every taco stand on the street. This is a quiet town, when we were on the beach, we were often the only ones on the beach! Not a huge night life but we did see life music twice during our 1 week stay. We will be going back!

“Great Place We will Be Back”
Reviewed 26 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We could hear the ocean surf on the veranda it is a short walk to the beach. All the amenities are close by only a 5-10 minute walk. Not a lot of tourists. Off the beaten path. Very comfortable place to spend some time roomy.

“Amazing stay! I've been before and will be back again!”
Reviewed 24 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This was my 2nd time staying here, and it is amazing! So many upgrades have been done. I love the pool here and the location to the beach. Lots to do around here and the owner even hooked me up with some tours. My favorite was releasing baby sea turtles at a local sea turtle camp. Great stay, I will definitely be back!
