Let us start by saying we did not have an objectively negative experience at Casa Estrella. However, we find the posting for this property to be fairly misleading. The views, as previously stated by other guests, were nearly nonexistent beyond the greenery of the jungle. There ar…
Response from AnnMarie (Estrella Del Mar):
We were completely blindsided by Dom's review. As he mentioned, we spoke several times during his stay and each time we spoke he was always totally positive, so we are shocked and disappointed to hear that he had any issues at all. We are truly sorry that Dom felt that our description was not accurate so we are working to improve it to ensure that people understand well what to expect. We also realize that certain judgements are a matter of opinion. The majority of our guests describe the views as "fantastic", "best" and "AMAZING" as seen in the many reviews here on Airbnb. The house sits on top of the hill with 360 degree views of jungle and ocean. During certain times of the year, when the jungle comes alive in the rainy season, the lush greenery fills in certain portions of the views but there is still always a view of the ocean and the surrounding jungle. Even during those times, the ocean views from the pool area are wide-open. The home's kitchen comes fully equipped with tools. We are foodies and we love to cook so we stocked our kitchen based on that. One guest commented that our house had "everything you need and nothing you don't" which perfectly describes our approach for this slow-living home. Because of the environment, we choose not to stock pantry items and we let people know that in our description. As shown in Airbnb's highlights, most of our guests describe the home as sparkling clean but we realize that sometimes little things can get missed. We spoke with our maid to let her know about the dust on the art in the kitchen and she has done a thorough deep cleaning since Dom's stay. We realize that some people are sensitive to scents so we also asked her about the lingering perfume on the couch pillows and she assured us that she had laundered the pillows prior to Dom's stay and that the scent he mentions is from our fabric softener. We make a point to highlight the fact that we are situated in an exclusive area of larger estates, set back from the noise and the bustle of central Sayulita. We are surrounded on two sides by acres of virgin jungle. Still, the walk from the house to the center of town and Sayulita's main beach is only about 12 minutes. We are very clear about that in our welcome information and we have updated our listing description to include that as well. We think it is important to point out that the cost to rent electric golf carts is exactly the same as gas golf carts, so it is not that Dom paid more, as his comment suggests. We encourage our guests to enjoy what we feel is a short walk to the center of town to experience a little more of the real Sayulita. We found Sayulita nearly 20 years ago when we had our choice of the best properties. We chose to build our dream home in what we feel is the absolute best location in Sayulita--just close enough and just far enough--with unparalleled, incredible views. Most of our guests come to get away from it all and enjoy the rare qualities that Casa Estrellita has to offer. We are happy to be able to share that experience with you.
Largely, this place is great! The hosts were really easy to communicate with, provided excellent instructions for finding the house (both in spanish and english), which really helped us in a taxi with very little spanish. The house is large and lovely. I agree with earlier review…
Response from AnnMarie (Estrella Del Mar):
We're pleased to hear that Sara appreciated all of our property's special qualities and especially our commitment to providing the best possible experience for our guests. We care so much about our property and we diligently work to maintain its beauty. Once we learned that a few sections of tile had come loose in the bottom of the pool, we immediately scheduled a repair. The sections of tile are being replaced this coming week and the pool will be renewed within a matter of days. In the meantime, guests are still able to enjoy the pool and its amazing views.
