“Three families – 14 people – stayed in Casa Cristal in December and I think we all wished we lived there permanently. I’m not kidding when I tell you this is by far the best vacation home I have ever stayed in, including any beach house rental in the United States. Guiones could have something to do with it but seriously, it is perfectly equipped, even had sharp knives and any beach renter knows what I mean. The four bedrooms, each with own bath, was exactly right for our group. We had 6 adults (3 couples) and 9 kids ranging in age from 9-16. Two of the families had their younger children share the bedroom and then one couple was alone and the fourth bedroom was for the three 16-year old girls. We had plans to use the three outdoor beds in the upstairs area BUT between the noise and the wind, it wasn’t ideal sleeping conditions for the kids. It wasn’t a problem for us but it is something to consider if you are depending on those beds. The indoor area, kitchen and TV room, was great. We were really only inside while in the kitchen, otherwise, the house is situated perfectly for outdoor living. We ate, swam, played, relaxed for 6 days almost entirely outside and couldn’t have been more comfortable. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the beach and very close to the Harbor Reef and The Beach Dog. We had two dinners prepared in the home for us and the outdoor table easily sat us all and then some. The house has separate pool towels and beach towels so you do not need to bring any, there were more than enough for 14 people. A/C in the bedrooms as well as ceiling fans. I honestly can’t think of one thing I would change about this house – maybe the owners – meaning I wish it was MINE! Enjoy! “
