    Exceptional Vacation Home

    This house is marvelous. We were a group of 17 (family reunion, ages 6 to 72) and everyone had a wonderful experience. Beautiful two story house with everything you need, from kitchen utensils to life vests. View is stunning and the Rancho is huge, direct private access to the lagoon and a wonderful private pool. I’m extremely satisfied with this rental. We never ran out of purified water(they kept supplying it without us asking) Highly recommend. The host makes you feel welcoming and the housekeeper shows up within 10 minutes when called. Great experience with this house. Definitely 5 stars!

    Amazing property.

    This whole trip was a roller coaster of emotions. We rented the property to celebrate the wedding of my brother. Unfortunately we got sick with covid and we had to reschedule 2 times until everyone tested negative. The Branchett family was super understanding and accommodating, they were flexible with us and allowed this experience to happen. The only downside to this stay is the wifi and reception are very slow. But given the location I’m sure it’s out of their control. Anyhow, we appreciate their help and are absolutely happy with how our stay was.

    Perfect Spot on Apoyo!

    Our group was thoroughly pleased with our stay at La Laguna. From our first correspondence with the lovely owners to the moment we departed, we were overwhelmingly happy. The house is perfectly suited for a couple of families, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as two kitchens and lots of outdoor space and sitting areas. Thanks to the caretaker, Wilmer, and the owners, we had everything we needed right down to beach towels, extra jugs of water, and ice. The view is spectacular, the pool, yard, patios, and palapa were divine and we were thrilled to have outdoor play toys from kayaks and boogie boards to a trampoline and a soccer goal and balls. The kids were in heaven and the adults even got a chance to rest. Perfect spot for families with kids. We will be back!

    The house is wonderful !!! The pool area is absolutely marvelous. Very convenient to have two kitchens... The property care takes is a real pleasurable guy. We had some issues in turning on the grill and he came to assist us in less than 5 minutes. Would recommend anyone to rent it!

    This place will take your breath away!

    For the short amount of time we were there, we had an amazing experience from arrival to departure. It was quite bittersweet leaving since we had a lot of fond memories the whole week. We will definitely come back again! Muchas Gracias, Mark y Wilmer!
