All the details of the property description have been provided here and on other sites so I will not go into further detail other than to say it’s accurate. The photos are realistic as well and represent the house without bias. No weird angles or lenses were used to try and convey something that isn’t reality.

We stayed for a week in July. The temperatures were in the 90’s with extreme humidity and zero breezes for the duration. This was to be expected. The main house is a massive palapa with open walls so there was no air conditioning in the common areas. Ceiling fans and the fact that it was perpetually shaded did make it tolerable though when just lounging around in bathing suits or shorts/t-shirts. All the bedrooms are air conditioned with ceiling fans and individual climate control respective to each room. At night, I was perfectly comfortable… meaning I was able to sleep in shorts/t-shirt and under the sheet & blanket. Only one couple complained their room would not cool to a comfortable level so they switched to a different vacant room and were fine. The bedrooms are large and well appointed with dresser, desk, sofa, closet with safe, each with large ensuite bathroom, and access to the rear of the house to hang wet pool/beach towels and clothes. Showers were walk-in and large with multiple shower heads. My only real complaint about the bedrooms and baths was the lighting. The rooms contain dark wood furnishings with dark ceilings and floors. The walls were white stucco, but since they do not have windows they become quite dark when louvered doors are closed. The bathroom lighting was especially irritating again because it was so dimly lit. These are not bathrooms women will appreciate if trying to put on makeup.

Yes, the house is over 40 years old and looks it. This is not an intended criticism. Some things look a little dated so if you’re looking for sleek and shiny, this house will probably not appeal to you. The place is maintained and clean, but shows signs of age (missing random pool tiles, scraped woodwork, and perhaps grout around pavers could use some attention). The fact that it’s all open air contributes to wear and tear. I wasn’t especially fond of the furniture in the main palapa because it felt like indoor/outdoor furniture opposed to lounging on a nice upholstered sofa. Another consideration is that if you’re there with a large group the only real place to hang out as a large group is under the palapa. It’s comfortable with gorgeous views and everything, but it’s not conducive to privacy and you’re all limited to wicker or patio furniture.

The staff was great and the food delicious. Absolutely no complaints. The surroundings were quiet in the evenings and even though the beach is technically open to the public (via boat); no one other than the residents of the houses on the beach used it. It looked like the beach/water in front of Casa Cosmos was actually the best. There were a few large rocks (in the water), but otherwise sandy. The other houses all looked like they had major rocks all over in the water in front of their access. The pool was large for a private house and deep (8’??). It’s not some silly plunge pool and can be utilized by a nice group without getting crowded. The house is close enough to town not to be inconvenient.

We had a great time here and it met about 90% of my expectations. The 10% that didn’t were just a little surprise to the age/appearance of some things. I’d absolutely consider this house again on my next trip to PV.
