beautiful Casa Terra and as always, we had a wonderful relaxing time at the
All in all, everything was perfect at Casa
Terra. We always enjoy seeing and talking with Gloria, and of course Maria's
visits to the house for massages are always a special occasion.
Matt actually got up on the stage and sang
and played guitar at Anna Banana's where the owner was blown away by Matt's
talent. He also did a couple of songs at a pub in Bucerias one evening
because several people in the audience had seen him perform at Anna Banana's
earlier in the week.
Hopefully, some year we will actually have
the opportunity to meet you in person but in the meantime, we certainly will
keep your e-mail address as you are the only person we are interested in
We will look forward to our 5th stay at
Casa Terra and will contact you later in the summer regarding dates for next

Good morning, Marilyn:
I can't believe its been 3 days since we left Paradise and Casa Terra. What a
fantastic vacation. Relaxation, recuperation and regeneration.
We did a whole lot of nothing which is what both of us needed. You were right.
The massages from Maria were the best Margaret has ever had. We had a
most glorious time and are now trying to figure out when we can get back.
Thanks again for all the assistance, Marilyn. You made the experience so easy.
Gecko was fantastic. We ate most of our meals at Frascati in La Cruz
Everyone was so friendly and helpful and we were quickly on a first name basis
with the staff.
I could ramble on forever. The bottom line is that this was the best vacation
both of us could have had and we are looking forward to returning.
Why change when you find something that good!
Dale and Margaret
Terrace and Vancouver BC
We thank you for providing such a terrific place for our vacation. It was more
lovely than the photos, and your tips and resource list were very helpful. In
fact, everything you recommended was perfect; from the folks at Gecko, to
Maria and Gloria...just great. Finally, how could we not mention Canello, our
angel dog, who made us feel completely at home.
We left rested and rejuvenated and are considering a return next year and hope
to bring our sisters along.
Lynn, Sylvia & Sandra
Casa Terra is a great house for 4 to 6
people -- the pictures are exactly what you'll see when you arrive. The house
has everything you need and it's an easy 10 minute walk along the beach to the
town of La Cruz and the fish market. It was so nice to have a gas grill
and grill up the freshest fish and seafood from the fish market.
The pool warmed up nicely in the afternoon and it was a great house to relax
and re-charge the batteries.
Marilyn was superb to work with and
ensures you have everything you need to enjoy your vacation. I definitely
recommend this house and the area. We stayed in late April, early May (which
is slow season) and it was so quiet and relaxing - if that's what you're
looking for, definitely stay in the slow season. We enjoyed downtown La Cruz
and really enjoyed the marina restaurants

and are very glad that we stayed at Casa Terra, rather than at one of the
resorts we usually choose. It was wonderful!

Beautiful home with great sunrises! We had and awesome time at Casa
Terra and hope to rent it again sometime. My wife thought it was an
awesome 50th birthday present. Her Birthday Dinner at Roberto's in La Cruz
was excellent, also dinner at Toscana Mia's in Bucerias. We went to the
market every day.
Casa Terra is very well appointed and your house has spoiled us--very relaxing.
We will be back!

Hola Marilyn and Dave:
Once again, thank you for providing a most
relaxing, stress free holiday. Everything one could wish for was at our
command. We enjoyed walks on the beach, barbeques overlooking the bay,
great restaurants and great fun!
We look forward to another return visit!
Karin & Vince
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
When we walked in the front door, my son
said "this is the first time that a place is even better than the pictures".
He was right! We could have stayed right there without ever
exploring other cities.
While the boys were off on a canopy tour,
my daughter and I had wonderful massages by Maria. That evening we had a
fantastic meal prepared by a wonderful couple, Lettie and Jesus.
Casa Terra is in a safe gated community
complete with a guard on the beach. We never felt unsafe in this area and the
town of La Cruz is charming with some great restaurants. I hope we get to go
back next year.
Thanks, Marilyn, for all the thoughtful
suggestions and recommendations
John, Deb, David, Melissa & Max
We had a terrific stay at Casa Terra and the house is perfect for three
couples. During our two weeks in Mexico we stayed in three different
properties in the Puerto Vallarta area but this was by far the most
retreat-like of all our accommodation. Casa Terra has all the amenities
and it is definitely a retreat!
We enjoyed the patio and pool, loved walking the beach, sunrises and blue
ocean, the weather and the comfortable beds! We all enjoyed La Cruz and
we discovered some very good beaches when we went on a boating trip and even
saw whales, and RELAXED.
Our men outdid themselves by preparing
evening meals of fresh fish and shrimp we purchased every day from the La Cruz Marina.
John and Gloria were both friendly and
helpful. On Valentine's Day the chocolate cake, orange cake and flan

We had a
wonderful holiday at Casa Terra. As you know, I had seen the house many times
during previous holidays in La Cruz, and had high expectations of what it
would be like to stay there, and I have to tell you that not only did the
house meet my expectations, but it exceeded them! It is a lovely house, and
is very well equipped for a holiday rental, especially in the glassware area -
I think there is a glass for ANY drink you could possibly want to make! We
appreciated all the outside furniture, as we always had a choice of upright
chairs or loungers for the many hours we spent in the beautiful yard and
around the pool, reading, sunning, or just enjoying the glorious view.
Gloria, and it was always a pleasure to see her arrive. She was able to help
with finding restaurants and places to shop in La Cruz and Bucerias as well.
enjoyed returning to La Cruz, and was happy to see that although there had
been a lot of new building since I was there last, it was still a small
fishing village at heart. We loved the new fish market, and walked into La
Cruz most days for shopping or just a latte for me, and smoothies for Peter
and Joan. We had some lovely meals there, including one at Vallarta Gardens,
just a two minute walk down the beach. It's worth noting that their security
guard led us back to Casa Terra - great, because he had a large flashlight,
and knew the best route to take. Casa Terra is very well situated to take
advantage of what La Cruz and Bucerias has to offer, but it was wonderful to
get back to a little oasis of calm and quiet.
already talked about a return visit, possibly bringing another friend for the
third bedroom, but not for a few years as I already have my next two winter
holidays planned. After that, who knows? I would have no hesitation in
recommending Casa Terra to anyone interested in visiting that area, and my
family has already seen my pictures and is quite aware of what a great holiday
they could have there.
I am so
pleased that I called you and so ended up at Casa Terra. Having met John
and Carol and their friends, we really felt we were staying with friends.
Thank you so
Mill Bay, BC Canada
Thank you for
allowing us to use your home for such a glorious vacation! Casa
Terra is beautiful and we loved the quiet surroundings, the walks into La
Cruz, the new Marina, the bus trips to Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias and Punta de
We had some
wonderful dinners at John and Carol's restaurant, "Arriba" upstairs at the La
Cruz Inn and it was delightful to have Gloria as our waitress! We were
pleased with John's recommendations for other excellent restaurants.
We feel truly
rested and did appreciate the fabulous view of the boats in front of the
house, palm trees and the beach and the diving pelicans. We watched a
fabulous sunset over La Cruz viewed from El Brujo restaurant in Bucerias and
were able to see "our boats" on the horizon.

at Casa Terra could not have been better - the weather was just fabulous, 80
degrees during the day and cooled down to 60's at night. We never had to turn
on the air conditioning. We were pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the
Casa is, including spices, paper products, shampoo, cleaning supplies and
laundry stuff. John and Carol were great and Gloria is a breath of fresh
air. Jesus and Lettie cooked a wonderful birthday dinner at the Casa and we
even went out on his boat for a half day.
The yard and
pool are beautifully maintained and we spent many an afternoon floating in the
pool. New Years Eve was the highlight. At midnight we stepped out on the
beach and watched 8 miles of fireworks displays down the bay - a life memory!
This was truly a special vacation for us and we thank you so much for making
it so easy for us.
much for everything. It has been a joy working with you and I hope to book
with you again. Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our
vacation at Casa Terra!
We were so comfortable there.
It was so nice to be in a house and have our own private pool.
We all loved the pool, but Cole and Mason especially.
went fishing twice with Jesus – what a wonderful guy! He took us
fishing/snorkelling the first trip. We ended up catching a rooster fish and
Lettie cooked us a fabulous dinner – fish crème – so so good! The second
trip was just me and my husband – we went Tuna fishing. No fish that
time, but it was still a wonderful time.
Jesus also set us up with a regular taxi guy that we used
for all of our trips. And on our last night in Mexico, he invited us to
his house for dinner along with other friends he invited. He became like
family to us – he even stopped by the house the morning of the day we were
leaving to say goodbye again.
Mexico is great--my first time here. We loved the Bucerias market with so
much to see and do.
Thanks again for sharing this beautiful house with us.
We will definitely be planning another vacation to Casa

Thank you so much for allowing us to reside in your lovely villa, Casa Terra.
Everything was perfect and the beds were very comfortable.
We had a great time fishing, surfing, zip lining and adventuring. All the
locals were very kind, helpful and courteous.
We LOVE the pool! IT WAS A GREAT VACATION!

Casa Terra is a
wonderful home! We all enjoyed it and everyone was so nice--from the
security guards at the gate to the housekeeper, Gloria.
We recommend the restaurant "Arriba" which was amazing and John and Carol are
so nice. The food we recommend are the Tomato and
Orange soup, garlic bread, Mange Shrimp, the curry dishes, Salmon Patties and
the Citrus Chicken! For dessert DO NOT order anything but the chocolate
cake! That cake is to die for!
We also highly recommend the "Outdoor Adventure Tour" by "Vallarta
Adventures". It was amazing!.
Todd is hoping to come back in October
to go fishing and next time we decide to come back to La Cruz you
will be the first I will call. The only thing we felt we needed was a
safe, but we managed to hide our valuables. Other than that the place was perfect.
Once again, Thank you so much for sharing beautiful Casa Terra with us.
Todd, Teresa, Sydney,

Casa Terra is just lovely. We have thoroughly enjoyed our selves and I must
tell you the pictures on your website DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE! It is even better
when you see it up close and personal.
I will not repeat all the wonderful things everyone has said. I would like to
add how comfortable the beds were. I slept like a log every night. We had
Maria over for massages and she was great.
Lew went fishing with Jesus but they did not get any fish this time. He is
out again today with a small boat out of Punta de Mita.
We had one of our best meals at Arriba, John and Carol’s restaurant in La
Cruz. The meal was delicious and the restaurant was very clean and the menu
items well priced. I recommend it highly! We love La Cruz. We will be back
with some of our friends.
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Your beautiful and comfortable Casa Terra was everything our family needed for
our too short stay. One week was just not long enough! Thank you for your
generosity in sharing your home with vacationers!
John and Carol were so friendly and welcoming. Gloria was great and we all
had massages with Maria. There was nothing to spoil our time here. We love
the quiet, the privacy and the friendliness of everyone we met. We will have
wonderful memories for many years.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved every
minute of it and had a fabulous honeymoon!
We can’t wait to come back and celebrate anniversaries! It is a perfect place
and we will always have wonderful memories.
Thanks to John and Gloria, too.
We just arrived home yesterday and
wanted you to know what a wonderful vacation we had at Casa Terra!!
Everything was just perfect. We were able to go on a Vallarta Adventures
trip to Las Caletas, explored beaches in Punta De Mita, Sayulita, San Pancho
and Bucerias, ate in some wonderful places including John and Carol's new
restaurant, Arriba (twice!).
We went horseback riding on the beach
in Bucerias and spent many happy and relaxing days by the pool! Our daughter,
Willa, learned to swim during our time in La Cruz! She just loved spending
hours on end in that pool! We want to thank you SO much for allowing us the
opportunity to spend our vacation at the perfect place!
We went into Puerto Vallarta just twice
and were so happy that we had decided to stay in a smaller, less populated
area and especially in the privacy of a personal home. We loved Gloria and we
had Maria come over twice to give us massages and pedicures! We also had the
very happy opportunity to be visited daily or nightly by La Puntilla's
resident dog, Canella, whom we just adored. All in all, it was a dream
vacation and we will certainly be going back to Mexico and La Cruz again one
Again, it has been wonderful working
with you and we hope we have the opportunity to do so again in the future.
Karen, Darla & Willa
Unfortunately, we had to come home. We
had a wonderful three week holiday at Casa Terra and still were not ready to
come home. As we had never been on a three week vacation before, I thought I
would be ready to come home, but no, I could have stayed much longer.
When we first got to Casa Terra and
opened the door I looked at Pentti and said "It feels like we've come home and
we hadn't left" (since last year). It is such a wonderful home. Everything
was great. Gloria, the cleaning lady is wonderful and the house was
We went out on a boat tour of the
harbour which was one of the many highlights of our trip. The people from
Gecko are great and I will definitely recommend them to anyone I talk to.
I had left the car rental to the last, but they were able to come up with an
older van for us and we fit right in--just like locals!
We are already trying to plan a trip
for next year. You may be hearing from me with regard to next year in the
next few months.

more than that, to offer.

There are so many great spots in the
area--San Pacho, Destiladeras Beach and the wonderful new bakery "Luna Caracol"
on Coral in La Cruz--the tomato-jalapeno rolls are perfection!
The kids have combed the beaches, eaten
popsicles galore and run with abandon. They are now die hard body
surfers and boogie boarders and we can't believe we will be back snowboarding
in 48 hours!
We think Casa Terra has the best view
in the oceanfront row of homes (at La Puntilla) and we are plotting to be back
again--sooner, rather than later. Thanks to the assistance of the excellent support staff (security, water, garbage, pool cleaning,
etc), we will truly miss so many friendly faces. The house was wonderful
and we had a great time.

This holiday ranks right up
there--probably the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. What a
lovely, safe and peaceful spot to share with friends. We had a great experience at Casa Terra
and found that the the property and
the entire week exceeded our expectations.
Highlights included riding the bus, the
Sunday market in Bucerias, Destiladeras Beach, papaya, and the best (on-site) massage
I've eve had. Snoozing, reading and relaxing in the pool
provided much needed restoration.
Thanks to all who are involved in
providing quality vacation experiences for work-weary travelers.
Judy & Shawndra
What a friendly and beautiful place!
I imagined staying busy with daytrips, etc, but in the end, Casa Terra was
enough--so peaceful and no real need to go anywhere else.
Scuba diving was great fun, as was
seeing fish and birds from the boat. We especially enjoyed watching
the pelicans diving for fish at the beach.
Thanks so much.

Once again, thanks for the
"home away from home". The fishing was exceptional, Cliff got a 450
pound Black Marlin and Dad got a 300 pound Blue Marlin. It was
unbelievable and very memorable. The Mariettas for snorkeling, the
beaches and the local fare are always a treat. It all makes us want for
more of the same.
The help from everyone was
appreciated. Margo and Felipe are a true joy. Kind folks are
never far away. You truly have a little slice of "Heaven" here! We
loved it all!

Our week at Casa Terra was
very relaxing and enjoyable. We felt at home almost immediately.
Everything is looked after to the finest it can. Everyone was very
friendly and helpful.
Thank you for sharing your home.

We have been lucky enough
to spend time in Mexico again, but never in a lovelier place. A month truly
makes it feel at home! The house was wonderful, as was all the help!
We enjoyed our time at home poolside, snorkeling, fishing, and relaxing.
A great place to slow down. We hope to share your home again.
We all long for more! Thanks again.

for over 20 years, year after year, but this particular one was " The Year ".
Dave, thanks for sharing with us not only a piece of paradise, but this was
like being in heaven. We definitely will be back if you allow us to
share your wonderful house once again.
