Better than we even imagined, and we had heaven on our minds!! We will certainly return because Casa Isabel was a delicate jungle paradise, but the added bonus was the humility and friendliness of our hosts, Chris and Beverly- great advice on local fun, great storytelling and information about Yelapa and its history, real-life trials, and sweetness. This is a...

Casa Isabel is a jewel. It's rough around the edges, not a polished 5-star resort - but that's what I wanted in Mexico. Very few walls, but lots of privacy. Each room is open to a view of the ocean - and the beds were suspended from the ceiling which was AWESOME! There's a shared kitchen with plenty of room...

Stayed for a week , first at Annies and then at the Pavillion . When there was no noise it was wonderful but there was construction going on next door and somebody was playing electric piano (Late seventies rock, limited repertoire) and as there are no walls, everything is audible.. Just got the feeling that we were staying in their...

I'm sorry that our auditory environment was poor counterpoint to the radiant faces I saw when encountering these guests. The local Mexicans are absurdly tolerant of noise made by others, but I agree that the construction noise from an adjacent property, thankfully completed, was too much. Piano music is central in Chris' life, and we have grown so accustomed to...

Casa Isabel doesn't have a phone number on their website. Since I'd never been there before, I had questions about the number of steps, how steep the hills were just to get an idea on whether I could take my mom there and if she could handle it. A few simple questions such as, which rooms do you have in...

We regret that this prospective guest had a bad experience interacting with us over the telephone about a possible reservation. The blunt-spoken volunteer whom she talked to has moved on. This is not the experience you will have when you come to Casa Isabel, where we are known for our hospitality to the guests of this peaceful and lovely spot....

The two of us have been to Yelapa before, twice staying at Casa Isabel. This time we were in Casa Jade again (it used to be Casa Deanna) the end of March and beginning of April. The weather was warm as well as the seas. Swimming Kayaking and Snorkeling a pleasure. We paid on line and had communications with the...

Having been to Yelapa on previous occasions we thought we would try Casa isabel for a few nites stay over. The only advantage with staying at this property is that the water taxi from PVR stops directly in front of the property. Besides that I would not reccomment the property since there are too many steps to climb to get...

We regret that this guest had a less than fabulous time at Casa Isabel. I appreciate his efforts to be thorough and fair in review, and agree that Casa Isabel is for strong-hearted, outdoorsy people. However, permit me to doubt his arbitrary age limit of 45. Until Isabel died at age 81 she still scampered around the property like an...

I found Casa Isabel on the internet, read the reviews and booked 2 casitas for my family (husband and 3 adult children) right after New Year's 2013. We were looking for something different from the huge resorts of Puerta Vallarta and we found it. We loved the unique architectural features of our rooms and the fantastic views of the ocean...

Came here last April for holiday and had a really great time. The owners are extremely eccentric and the joint has a hippie vibe. That said, everything was clean, lots of towels and kitchen was well stocked. Water taxi drops you off in front of the building and the private beach is nice. We bought groceries and cooked all but...

The Beach House at Casa Isabel is right on the water with a beautiful flowering privacy hedge so that people from the private little beach out front, Playa Isabel, can’t see in but you still have a great view of the bay. There is a private yard out in front where you can sit in seclusion in a lounger to...

Yelapa is an experience for the intrepid traveler--this is not a luxury experience. It is, however, magical and special. We saw humpback whales every day during our stay in the bay. I stayed in Casa Deanna with friends, which was sunny, private and had wonderful views. It was a bit of a hike, but more hiking=more sun+more privacy here. I...

Thanks for the vote of confidence. We are so sorry about mold in the Nook, and have become hyper-alert to the state of the woven-mat "patates" which make up the walls. They were fresh and new, and thus moist and susceptible to mold in our humid jungle. We also instituted more cross-ventilation. The Nook is our gift to the budget...

“Pavillion has very limited privacy and everything can be heard. Suspended beds are not for everyone, especially if you get romantic, take Dramamine before the blue pills, it can be quite a ride.”

“Be ready to walk and go up steps every day. Be ready to enjoy the sounds of the sea and the birds. Be ready to relax and enjoy the stars and moon. Just be ready.”

“I would never stay at this facility again. The south end of Yelapa is for the strong hearted and adventureous. Possibly try some of the properties north of the main beach and stay away from the unuits like Playa Isabel that are carved out of the jungle. Almost all the places in South beach Yelapa require climbing many stone steps or walking along the stone path cover with donkey dung. NO barefoot walking here.”
