We went with another couple and stayed in Casa Luna June 1st-7th. We instantly fell in love with Yelapa and this house is the perfect location to experience it all. There was plenty of room. It was bright and clean. David was a wonderful host. He wasn't invasive but told us where he would be and anytime we needed anything...

I absolutely LOVED my stay at Casa Santa Cruz. The staff is awesome and attentive, and we felt so well cared for. The house itself was charming and ideal for our adventures, with comfy beds and an incredible view from the living room. Falling asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing can't be beat. We loved having the private...

We have stayed at this property many times. and you can't beat the location. There are things you put up with because of the open aired house on the edge of the jungle and the ocean but the location is what we love. and we have been here so many times now that when we come it does feel like...

Met Chrissi on our arrival and settled in straight away. We booked Casa Sol but moved to Casa Luna after a few days. There are only 2 of us and Casa Sol seemed big for just the 2 of us. This was our third trip to Yelapa, and still cannot get over the friendliness of the people, the wonderful scenery,...

I was all excited about writing a fantastic review, but after reading the words posted by others before me, all I can say is "all that and more": secluded, beautifully decorated, magical landscape, friendly people ... the list goes on. I stayed at Casa Luna, but Sol and Estrella are just as nice. I also looked at El Jardin to...

You certainly have to know what you're getting yourself into when you come here, but if you come with the right expectations, I don't think this place can be beat. We came expecting very "rustic" conditions based on other reviews, and we were surprised by how incredible it was—really, an awesome place like no other I've seen. Once we dropped...

Yelapa is truly a magical place to visit, and the beautifully rustic, open-air casas that make up Casas Santa Cruz are a great place to take it all in. I’d stayed in rustic places before (Tulum, Mexico), but never at a place that was OPEN AIR. What an amazing adventure. I was concerned at first about the heat and bugs...

Our experience staying at Casa Luna was one for the books. We went into our trip not totally knowing what to expect, but just hoping we would enjoy ourselves and really get to experience something new, and we definitely did! If you're looking for a rustic, down-to-earth experience that really immerses you in the true culture of Yelapa, stay at...

Casa Luna is a beautiful rustic, romantic retreat on the shore of Yelapa. I was a bit tentative to stay here at the end of February because I had read two of the more recent negative reviews, but I loved Casa Luna! It met all of my expectations and did not disappoint! It was a pleasure to correspond with Chrissi...

“Most of the rooms are in the shade, which makes them comfortable during the heat of the day. The beach right in front is sunny, so worry not.”

“We loved Casa Luna. It's the smallest of the three but we loved that the upstairs, with only one bed, acted as a private floor, and the view was incredible.”

“If you're prone to motion sickness, avoid the hanging beds (Casa Sol has a room with a regular bed, not sure about the others)”
