“A unique getaway”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in July 2013

Casa Joanie has a rustic feeling to it, which is part of its charm. We arrived to find the house as advertised. The open concept with large open arches for windows made us feel close to nature and provided us with a great view of the bay. The kitchen is fully loaded and we cooked most of our own meals. We hired Marilu, Diego’s wife, to cook us dinner one evening. It was fresh tuna fish tacos, fresh grilled tuna, beans, rice, salsa and tortillas. It was delicious and more than sufficient for one meal.
Expect various lizards and insects staying with you during rainy season as well as the odd crabs. The large lizard who sleeps in the rafters during rainy nights keeps to itself. It is not a snake like we first thought! There is a mosquito net hung from the ceiling fan. It is necessary during rainy season (summer) to keep the insect from eating you alive as you sleep! We would recommend a square mosquito net especially for rainy season. We couldn’t get the round one to totally cover the bed. Bug spray and sunscreen are necessities. Power outages are common and there were candles in the house along with matches. Also, expect it to rain briefly every day and sometimes quite heavily at night with only curtains attempting to keep the rain out of the house. Rain did get in a couple times during thunderstorms.
During low season there are less people around, which for us was more relaxing. There are a few shops to buy staple Mexican food and snacks. The Yelapa ahora map was very helpful. The house is not beachfront but the beach is accessible by foot. There are a few restaurants open in low season. We recommend Gloria’s near the church. Take the cash you think you will need and a little more since there are no ATMs in Yelapa but a few restaurants on the beach take credit cards. There is a waterfall located 1 ½ to 2 hours hike away that requires a guide. We were told it is not safe to go in the river/waterfall in rainy season because of the strong current. There is another waterfall about a 15 minute hike from the village which is quite tall and ends in a small pool which is perfect for a nice swim. We hear that it is much more impressive in rainy season than in dry season.
All in all, we enjoyed our one week stay at Casa Joanie. We would recommend this rental to adventurous travellers looking for an authentic Mexican village experience.
