Amazing experience!

Karla’s food was the best we’ve had in rocky point. She was an amazing addition to our vacation and made us feel totally spoiled.

The Perfect Place for Our Family Vacation

We recently spent a week (June 23 - 30) at Casa de Ole. It was our first family vacation with our 2 daughters, their husbands, and our 6 grandkids. We couldn't have had a better trip. The setting was gorgeous. The house was big enough to accommodate all of us comfortably. The patio made for awesome views of the ocean and the sunrises/sunsets. All of us enjoyed our "private" beach and the kayaks. We can't say enough about how Karla took care of us. Her cooking was amazing!

Thank you for the greatest of times!

Casa de Ole - A little slice of Heaven!

We recently visited Rocky Point with my family of 9 what a wonderful time we had. We have been going to Rocky Point for years (40+) and know most of the many wonderful rental homes on the beach. There are so many beautiful homes it’s hard to choose.

This year we stayed at Casa de Ole. What a great time we had! Of all the homes from Rocky Point to Caborca, the Casa de Ole home in my opinion is THE best! The expansive beach with daily pod of dolphin parading back and forth for what appeared just for our family every day of our visit!

Having been to Rocky Point so many times we considered ourselves quite experienced in knowing how to vacation. In the past we spent considerable time preparing and enjoying meals both inside and outside on the patio. This year we decided to take Bill and Cat up on their recommendation and utilized the services of Karla their chef that comes with the home rental. BEST decision we ever made! Karla was “fabulous”! Every meal she prepared was scrumptious with each being better than the last!

And of course, the HOME, Casa de Ole! It just took us to another place and time. I love Old Town and the Mercado but to be honest I just enjoyed staying home and reading Hamilton by Ron Chernow on the patio with sound of waves in the background and in the beautiful living room of Casa de Ole. Every night we so looked forward to the Fire Pit to share memories of our stays and enjoy the starry nights and rediscover the summer constellations.

When we return to our little slice of Paradise next year no doubt we plan to stay at Casa de Ole. The owners are attentive and enjoy seeing their guests enjoy their little slice of heaven at Casa de ole!

Love this property!

As always, this house is such a pleasure to stay in. What an incredible beach and we can't wait to get back! Karla is a fantastic cook and we love having her cook for us. And the kayaks were a major bonus!

The perfect beach vacation!!!!

The pictures of this home do not do it justice, it is so much better than any picture could depict. Not only is every inch of this home uniquely decorated for the Mexico location but the views and beach location are amazing. My immediate and extended family all (14) stayed together and just loved this home, the location, and the wonderful food provided by Karla.

Leading up to our stay, the homeowners were very responsive to any questions I had and upon arrival they called just to check in and see if we needed anything, which was very kind.

This home allowed each person to do what they wanted at any point, whether it was hanging out in the home, on the patio or on the beach that was essentially a private beach because it was so quite.

My whole family was thrilled about the home and location and absolutely loved our vacation. We definitely will be back.

Amazing experience

Casa de ole was an amazing home with the most beautiful views. It was spacious and had all the amenities needed for this nice get-away. Karla (the cook) topped it all off with her delicious meals -I’m still drooling over them today. I’d deff be coming back to this home!

Girl's trip to paradise!

Wonderful beachfront home in private gated community. It’s obvious the love and pride these owners take in their property – everything is top notch and all the comforts of home! Beautiful mosaics throughout the house and courtyard. Super comfy beds with an individual bathroom for each bedroom!

We loved being able to lounge on the large shaded patio, or walk on the beautiful white sand. Mornings were always exciting when we saw pods of dolphins right off the beach! We went kayaking, and the women all loved buying silver jewelry and other wares from the beach vendors. Each of us had an hour massage on the patio, with the melodic sound of the ocean in the background. Even though it was spring break week, we often felt like we almost had the beach to ourselves – except for the early morning dog walkers. Each day we were able to walk out and get our dog fixes. We took two trips into town, and found fun places to eat and shop.

If the home and location isn’t already wonderful enough, the rental includes lovely Karla, who cooked and cleaned …..not sure how a vacation could get any better – it was relaxing, and Karla’s food fed our souls! Wonderful menu with lots of food. Hard to pick our favorites, but highly recommend her coconut shrimp, fish tacos, bacon wrapped shrimp, chicken tostadas, and beef arrachera.

As a group of 4 woman, it was a great place to decompress. Tears were shed as we had to leave, and all hope to be back again!

Breath Taking Views of Ocean and Beach!

I just finished my second stay in paradise at Casa de' Ole. Every year since retiring and moving into an active 55+ community, I have planned a get away for girlfriends in our community bridge club. They LOVE Casa de' Ole!!! The roms were spacious and comfortable. They constantly talked about the colorful Mexican decor and the mosaic art tiles that were everywhere inside and out. We all agreed that one of the best parts was being spoiled by the cook/housekeeper Karla. The owners have been fantastic to work with and the house is clean and well maintained. We will be back again!

Absolutely Amazing!

This was a much needed break for us. The beach is so peaceful (hardly any people because there are NO HOTELS) The food is to die for!

We kayaked! We LOVED the Oyster Farm... YUM! (get them roasted on the half shell with pico and cheese!!!)

Dolphins cruising the coast, night time walks on the beach with glow in the dark phosphorescent algae in the sand and on the water's edge!!! Lots of wonderful READING time! The home is MAGNIFICENT! Colorful, comfortable and restful... THANK YOU!!!

Absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!

Wow - tough to put into words how phenomenal the experience was at Casa De Ole! First off - the house. It is one of the most incredible homes I have ever visited. The attention to detail - the owner is a mosaic artist and her work is on almost every wall!! It is luxurious - but extremely welcoming. It is relaxed and comfortable to be in - and has every possible amenity you could ever hope for! My family was able to kayak with dolphins - right off the beach! I guess there are pods that come by all the time! We went birding in the estuary, sat by the fire pit at night, walked for miles and miles on a pristine endless beach - what is not to love!

And then there is Karla - what a wonderful woman who is there to cook and clean for you! Her meals are delicious and your only role is to enjoy yourself!

We will DEFINITELY be back - hopefully every year. This is a magical place and an unforgettable beach villa.

Gene & Alana K. Phoenix Best Sunrise/set views in town

In all our years coming down to RP, Casa de Ole is our favorite place to stay. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are perfectly comfortable. Best beach for morning strolls, sunning and afternoon games. Karla is an amazing cook, her coconut shrimp is to die for. The owners are a delight to deal with and you won't be disappointed.

Adios, until next year!

Beautiful Beachfront Retreat - Perfect for Large Groups & Families

This was my first time staying at Casa de Olé and will definitely not be my last! From the beautiful mosaic artwork adorning the property to Karla’s cooking to the pristine beach right in the backyard, every moment both inside and outside felt like a luxurious retreat. The property owners went out of their way to make Casa de Olé feel like home: the kitchen is fully stocked, and the bedrooms all have personal touches that make them feel unique. Karla was friendly, made delicious meals (all with the freshest ingredients), and tidied up the house while we were enjoying the beach. Although we were with a party of nine, sound surprisingly did not travel throughout the house, allowing some of us (me) sleep in while others started their days early to watch the sunrise. Cannot say enough great things about this place - thank you for a great stay and so many memories!

A slice of Paradise!

Just returned from our THIRD stay at Casa de Ole! Obviously, we love it there! The home is well maintained, and each time we've gone, there has been some type of upgrade. It's obvious the owners lovingly care about their slice of paradise. I am just super happy they choose to share it with the rest of us!

The home easily fits several families, is well stocked, comfortable and adorable. Have any questions about the house, the area, etc? All your answers are in a book on the coffee table. I love this. I have rented many a vacation home, and I must say this book is the most comprehensive I've seen.

The location on the beach is perfect- this is the best beach in the area in my opinion, and I've been going down to Rocky Point for over 20 years!

And lastly...the food. Oh my. Bring your stretchy pants because the meals are to die for!! Loved everything Dulce (and in previous visits, Rosa) made for us!

Can't wait until our next visit!

Beautiful and relaxing!!

This was our first visit to Casa de Ole but have been to Rocky Point many times. The house is beautiful, well maintained and perfect for multiple families. We were four families and the house was perfect for our group. It was so nice to be on the beach all day and come back and have your meal prepared for us. We loved everything Dulce prepared for us. Highly recommend!!!

by Lisa S. Submitted Date of Stay:

Best Family Vacation!

We stayed for 4 nights and didn't want to leave! Dulce cooked lunch and dinner for us every day - what a treat and really well priced! Her coconut shrimp is to die for! The beach is gorgeous and the water is rock-free - smooth sand for miles. Dolphins swam about 10 ft from us! The house is beautiful and has RO filtered water throughout. However, remember to bring a pop-up/shade structure [or two!] because the patio has no sun protection. This is a perfect family vacation with kids. The beach is safe and serene, the water is calm and warm.

Best of the best.

Our favorite place by far. Casa de Ole is a home away from home. Everything is here, there is no need to leave. Rosa and sisters are fabulous cooks and very accommodating. This is our 4th year with hopes of many more to come. Beds are comfortable, private baths for all and beautifully decorate. Love the new sitting area outside, perfect for a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Thank you for opening your home and hoping you'll have us back.

Exceeded our Expectations

Wow. What a great family trip! This property was recommended to me by a co-worker who gave it rave reviews. I was a little nervous driving on the dirt road to get to the property, but it is beautiful with everything you could possibly need. We felt safe and secure and very much at home. The house was beautiful, the rooms clean and comfy (the bunk room great for kids with glow in the dark items painted on the walls) and each with their own bathroom! The cook was very friendly and the food was delicious. (We were a group of 12 and our bellies were always filled to the brim with plenty of leftovers each day). Being directly on this beautiful, serene beach couldn't have been better and having kayaks available to use was a real plus. Very few people were on the beach. No crowds is simply Heaven! There are magazines, books, videos, and games to use and plenty of room for a large group. The owner was very responsive and we couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be back!

WONDERFUL!

Casa Ole` is a wonderful home! We have stayed at many places in Rocky Point and this is the BEST! The beach home is wonderfully decorated with vibrant colors and artifacts. It is clean and well taken care of. We had a chance to meet the owners while were there and they were helpful and so delightful.

Rosa, the maid/cook, is a lovely lady and cook. She cooks, cleans up and leaves you and your guests to enjoy your time at the house. Her meals are are simply fantastic.
It is in a safe, gated community within reasonable distance to town for supplies. It's a wonderful house for families or a few couples. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and so much privacy. The use of the kayaks was an extra treat! We cannot wait to return.

Spectacular!!!

The whole trip to Rocky Point was spectacular. I have stayed primarily in Las Conchas the last 12 years but this trip to Casa De Ole has changed my mind. So nice to to speak with Lauren directly versus a broker. She, Sylvia, Rosa took great take pride in helping us us with our questions, and the food was spectacular! The house was lovely and we were all happy to arrive and sad to go! To the future. Thanks!

Wonderful house and host!

Such an wonderful house and host! Fantastic place to get away and enjoy the sandy beaches, birds, dolphins, blue seas and good food. Highly recommended for a family get together. Every room is beautiful, well stocked, with private bathrooms. The artistic tile touches make this beautiful house unique too. Rosa is a great cook and very helpful. Our host Lauren was very flexible and informative as well. We had a super fun and relaxing time in Mexico.

Fantastic Beach Paradise!

This was hands-down one of the BEST rental experiences of my life. The house was not only less than 50 feet from the ocean (tides varying), but it also came with the sweetest, most amazing cook named Rosa who took care of us, picked up after us, and was generally amazing. The house has absolutely every amenity and is absolutely lovely. I have already recommended Casa de Ole to my friends and family that are planning to go to Mexico in May. Thank you so much Casa de Ole for a wonderful time with friends and a relaxing vacation!

This house is amazing!

My girl friends and I rented this house because we wanted a relaxing, peaceful place to get away for the weekend. This house was everything we wanted and more---it is right on the water and the view of the ocean is amazing. The cook Rosa is so sweet and makes the best food. It was wonderful having her there! The house iteslf is terrific. It is adorned with beautiful mosaics and bright fun colors. The house has its own de-salinization system so we didn't have to worry about water either. I would definitely recommend this house--my girlfriends and I had a terrific time.

AMAZING VACATION

I booked this property to surprise my parents, brother and I to celebrate my parents25th anniversary - I could not have been more pleased with my choice! The property was beautiful and incredibly close to the ocean. My dad and brother enjoyed the use of the kayaks and my mother and I loved reading on the patio in the most comfortable chairs! We all enjoyed having Rosa there to cook delicious meals! Could not have found a more beautiful location to help my parents celebrate this occasion!

A treasure!

Casa Ole` is everything - and more - than as described in the listing and by other reviewers. The beach home is wonderfully decorated with vibrant colors and artifacts. It is clearly cared for by owners who enjoy spending time at it, too. Rosa, the maid/cook, is a lovely, warm person who is as pleasant as she is unobtrusive. Her meals are are simply fantastic. We are Arizonans and pretty particular about Mexican food. Her offerings are, hands-down, terrific. Too, Playa Encanto is the nicest beach in Rocky Point. It is in a gated community within reasonable distance to town for supplies. The only hesitation I have in writing this review is that others will discover it and make it less available to us when we return. In the end, it's just too beautiful to not share with others.

A FANTASTIC FAMILY EXPERIENCE! HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ANY OCCASION!

Our family was looking for something special and different for the long 4th of July weekend. Going to Mexico for Independence Day seemed a little odd, but I've given 20 years of service to this country...Uncle Sam was going to cut me some slack for this one. LOL My wife set the whole thing up on VRBO.com and it turned out to be a very easy process for booking, payment and support once we were there. The toll roads to this location are in good order, but the desert route is desolate. Easily a 2-3 hour stretch with not one service station or "civilization", so take a well-maintained car and pack A LOT OF WATER. (Just in case) The house is located directly on the beach and even at lowest tide the water is within 100 meters of the back porch. The utilities all run great; The house is on solar for electricity, gas stove, central air conditioning, heated water and a high tech desalination system that actually purifies water from the sea for cooking, drinking and bathing. We drank it all week and it was as if it came out of a plastic bottle from the store (TALK ABOUT GREEN!). Rosa (the housekeeper) was excellent and is quite a cook, she made us chile rellenos for dinner one night. DELICIOUS! There is also a book with numbers for people to assist you if you have questions during your stay. Everything from wireless internet to adjusting the water heater/air conditioning. They were always pleasant and helpful. Overall, I must say that we enjoyed the experience, the weather and everything that this special house offers. I could go on and on, but characters are limited and EVERYTHING WAS JUST AS LISTED ON THE SITE and just like the photos. The grounds are maintained, the place is clean, the sea was WARM and it was the BEST VACATION I've taken with my family in more than 10 years. Thank Lauren, my family will remember this for years to come! You have a beautiful home!
