Bob & Monica have put together a terrific workshop/vacation. I was there for a week of amazing excursions along with the highest quality painting instruction. Their attention to detail, their accommodation of people's preferences and care was so very appreciated. The food!! was amazing and they really give a total package with taking guests to places of amazing beauty and...

I attended a watercolor workshop here and while I did not stay at the Casa itself, I ate and took classes there. Bob Masla, who has been running winter workshops here for almost a decade, is obviously at home here, and is infectious in his enthusiasm for Boca and its people. To access the Casa means a trip across one...

I attended a watercolor workshop for a week at la Casa de los Artistas. Everything, the instruction, the lodging, the village, the meals, the participants, the excursions, exceeded my highest expectations. Yes, there is noise at night and uneven walking surfaces, but it's an incredibly safe, friendly environment and Bob Masla, the owner, organizer, and artist, puts his heart and...

I am reviewing this location as the attendee of a retreat that was hosted in the Casa de los Artistas. Although I did not physically "sleep" in the Casa, I took all of my meals and art lessons there. My little casita was just a short walk away. While attending this art retreat, I enjoyed the beautiful home of Robert...

I work too many hours and Monday is my day off. I love yo bring my dogs to boca. It is a small beach. My dogs are safe and free to run. I try a new resto weekly and each one gas been good. There are only a handful of them. More water taxis than restos. Love the place

I read all the glowing reviews and couldn't wait to experience the Casa, but my experience and my fellow travelers experience fell far short of the previously posted reviews. There are only two guest bedrooms in the Casa. If you aren't lucky to get one of those you have to walk a dirt, rocky path that is strewn with trash,...

Bob and Monica create a warm and welcoming space to learn, connect and relax. They provide everything you need to nourish and grow. I highly recommend a trip to La Casa to experience the beauty of La Boca!

I recently spent a week as Casa de Los Artistas for a week of watercolor classes with Tom Lynch....I knew that the instruction would be great as i had taken a workshop with Tom in Spring 2014. But what I got in Boca was so much more.....Bob Masla has created a unique place for artists to retreat and learn with...

Casa de Los Artistas utterly transcended any expectations. We felt immersed in the environment and at the same time totally taken care of. The food was amazing and the area lovely. Best vacation ever.

It was my big birthday - marking the end of a decade and the start of another. I wanted something really special, and my stay at La Casa de Los Artistas made it so. I attended a watercolor workshop with Sterling Edwards in February 2013. Everything was wonderful: first class tuition, wonderful organic food, first rate accommodation at the nearby...
