I have been to Mexico several times but never to such a quaint setting. The Casita de La Penita is a the water end of this little town so you get the best of many worlds. An authentic Mexican town with some tourists in it and a fabulous homey place to stay, that is run by Linda and Bob -...

Great little apartment complex with small pool and garden. Good location on the seafront with a nice beach and great swimming. A two minute walk to the nearest restaurant. Well managed by two Canadians Bob and Linda who will go out of their way to insure you have a great holiday.

This is the third year our family and friends have travelled to La Peñita to stay at the Casita se La Peñita and, as always, we're loving it! Linda and Bob are fabulous hosts. They welcome us on arrival, making certain that we get settled quickly and having stocked our fridge as we've requested -- going above and beyond to...

What a great place to stay - accommodating hosts, comfortable apartment, well maintained gardens and furniture, lovely pool and central location. What more could one ask for! We enjoyed a seven week stay here in La Penita and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Next year, we plan to return. Bob and Linda go out of their way to make their guests...

We had a wonderful vacation at Casita de la Penita all thanks to the awesome hosts, Bob and Linda! From the great accommodations, to the restaurant recommendations and reservations, as well as the massage by the pool, they made sure every day of our trip surpassed our expectations. It was an authentic Mexican experience that you just don't get from...

The accommodations were excellent with a twenty step walk to the Pacific. We were surrounded by worthwhile restaurants and shops and took advantage of the perfect weather. Linda and Bob treated us like royalty during our stay and would highly recommend La Casita de La Penita to anyone who wants to experience a vacation rich in true Mexican culture.

We love this little motel on the beach. We have visited the Casita twice, and have already booked for next year, because everything about it is perfect. La Penita is a very interesting little Mexican town where you can feel at home, very relaxed, and try out a little Spanish when buying your fresh tortillas, prawns, avocados, and papayas (etc)...

I spent a lovely relaxing week at La Casita over Christmas. This is a destination for someone who is looking for a feel of real Mexico as opposed to a "resort holiday". It was perfect for my goals of reading, swimming, sunning, walking and eating great seafood, while experiencing the Mexican celebrations of Christmas. Bob and Linda were wonderful hosts,...

We stayed in Casita de la Penita in late November of this year and had a wonderful time. Our hosts, Bob and Linda, were really nice and helped us choose restaurants, taxis, etc. They were a wealth of information about La Penita and the surrounding areas. The Casita is extremely clean, well maintained and safe. We stayed in unit #7...

We arrived late in the evening after a taxi ride through what seemed to be jungle with trees overhanging the road, so we didn't have a really clear idea of where we were, but Bob and Linda greeted us with smiles and a warm welcome and made us feel at home. The location of this little property could not be...
