Here’s what Dave wrote (stayed 6/3 to6/13/21)
“Stayed at casa de los mangos for a 10 day surf trip with four friends. We enjoyed the house and beautiful landscaping. The house was always clean and all other aspects were as advertised. WiFi was much better than some other places I’ve stayed in the area. Excellent communication with the host before + during our stay. Would recommend this place and planning to visit again.”
Dave’s private feedback for you:
“Tim, Thanks for hosting us last week. We enjoyed everything and would definitely stay at your place again. No need to change anything. Regards, David”
Here’s what Noah wrote (stayed June 2021)“I agree with all of the prior glowing reviews. This beautiful custom home is thoughtfully designed. It manages to feel both grand in scale and intimate with unique artistic pieces placed at every turn. The grounds are lush and the crystal clear pool offers a welcome diversion in the midday heat. From the moment I booked Villa de los Mangos the hosts Tim and Erwing were in quick communication with me. Tim went above and beyond to anticipate my needs and answer all my questions. His warmth and passion for ensuring that his guests have a wonderful experience shines through. Quick wifi, washer/dryer and many other little things were supplied that made this place feel like home. Of course the promise of incredible surf was why I left home and I was not disappointed - I had an epic time surfing!” Noah’s private feedback for you: “Thanks for a wonderful stay!”
If you like to surf, this is the place to go. The house is well laid out, with two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. AC works well in both downstairs bedrooms. Kitchen is well stocked with pans, dishes, staple food items (spices, oil, etc.). The hammock outside is a great place to relax and cool off. The pool is large and our kids loved it. The location is somewhat rural. The house is almost at the end of a little road by the water. There are a few other beach houses in the area, but there's only a few cars that pass by every few hours. If you walk to the beach (very short walk), you can then walk to some of the restaurants that line the beach. It is not a busy place, which means it's easy to ride a wave without being in someone's way. There are some surf board rental shops and folks who give lessons. Bring water shoes if you want to spend time in the water -- there are plenty of rocks and it's just a much more comfortable experience with something on your feet. It's a good idea to stock up on groceries at the Mega in Zihua before heading to the house. There's not a ton of shopping in the immediate area. The house has a large freezer and refrigerator, so it's fine to buy enough food for a week or two. This is a great place to spend a week or two if you want a quiet place to enjoy some tropical weather. I was able to work remotely very easily (internet is great), kids were able to play in the pool or go to the beach, and my wife was able to surf, so it made for a great trip for all. We used Tonii to drive us back and forth when necessary, rather than renting a car. The roads were navigable, but there are some dicey dirt roads on the last stretch that need care to drive through, especially if it's just rained. We made it through in Jetta, so 4x4 isn't necessary, but if you aren't 100% comfortable driving on dirt roads in Mexico, you may want to opt for something with higher clearance than a regular sedan. Lastly, Felipa and Diego take care of the house and grounds and make sure the place is in good order. The house was cleaned daily, the pool was cleaned daily, and both were always happy to help however we needed.

5/5 STARS WONDERFUL BEACH GETAWAY
Villa de los Mangos was the perfect spot for our small group of friends (two couples). We loved the care and attention that Tim has put into creating a comfortable and thoughtfully composed home, including the art, the comfy beds, and the beautiful roof deck and outdoor spaces. The house is an easy walk to the surf break and located in a quieter part of town. The internet is shockingly fast--we were all able to get work done over the course of our stay without any issues. Felipa cooked us delicious meals at our request (highly recommend her plantains, rice, beans, and pico de gallo). And, last but not least, Tim was a warm and welcoming host who really made us feel at home--already hoping we can return soon!
📷House is perfect distance to break, great kitchen, awesome spot for a surf trip
📷Casa Mango is a beautiful house that is fun and with all the amenities that made it very comfortable. The rooms were big with comfortable beds, living area had plenty of space and the pool was a perfect place to relax after a long day of surfing. It has easy access to the beach and restaurants and the host Tim is great and very helpful! We'll definitely be back!!!
“Tim, Thank you and congratulations on building a beautiful place that you share with your guests!”.
