What our guests are saying!
Better Than Any 5 Star Hotel!!
My husband and I traveled with another couple and spent one fantastic week at Casa Baku. The internet listing is quite accurate....as a matter of fact, we were pleasantly surprised that this vacation home surpassed every expectation we had! From the beautiful landscaping, to the wonderful and comfortable furnishings, to the location and view and all the extra touches (i.e. kitchen appliances, bottled water, soft and luxurious bathroom towels, well-maintained pool, daily maid service, etc.), carefully and lovingly provided by the warm and welcoming owners!! The property was gated and locked, which provided alot of privacy and, from the minute we arrived to the minute we left we felt safe and completely relaxed under the warm sun and gentle Mexican breezes coming off Banderas Bay. We enjoyed wonderful, quality restaurants, five of which are within easy walking distance of Casa Baku. Paying a small fee for a "meet and greet" service providing transportation to and from the airport, made our vacation begin the moment we stepped off the plane! My husband and I have been traveling for the last 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Baku. We are planning a return to this hidden treasure as soon as we can arrange it, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who values quality, privacy and casual elegance!
Wonderful! We spent a week (Jan 2007) in the upstairs guest house. It's light, bright, and beautiful. You feel as if you're sleeping in a tropical treehouse with a view of the ocean. Mike & Marianne are wonderful hosts. Great place to RELAX. Gardens are spectacular. Lots of restaurants within walking distance for delicious food. Terrific place for whale watching.
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Casa Baku and the surrounding area. Our hosts Marianne and Mike are delightful and fun people. Having been the first guests at Casa Baku several years ago, we were amazed at the gardens and how lovely everything looks. Lots of hard work by these two super people. We heartily recommend a visit.
What wonderful memories!
What you don't get from the pictures and descriptions is the sense of warm energy and sense of belonging that Marianne and Mike have created. We would take this life over life at a resort any time. The meals that Maria prepared and allowed me to help with were just excellent and I've fixed Mexican flan since returning home. Don't forget to try the Saturday night tacos on the street. What a fun treat! Check the calendar for lectures at Phil's. The Cafe Sabruso is a must for breakfast.
