My wife and I cannot say enough to recommend Maria's place to potential visitors to P.E. From being met by Maria at the airport to visiting the public market with her on our last full day in town, our stay was "simply" a joy. Maria goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and to encourage you to enjoy the town. The accommodations themselves are excellent. They offer just the right balance of privacy and interaction with your hosts (plural, as in Maria's son, Noah). Especially nice is how the layout of the place works: pool and lovely courtyard 'out the back'; incredibly spacious veranda (180 degrees) overlooking the bay and ocean 'out the front.' (You can create the right "balance" with more than just your host, given the geography of the building!) Clean as a whistle, excellent bathroom-and-shower facilities--and an easy walk to Angelito, Carrizalillo, and Manzanillo playas. You can also walk easily to the 'super Chedrahui' to stock up on potables and edibles. We will skip the "How can your host improve?' question "below": Out visit could NOT have been improved upon.
