House Featured in Bon Appetit


The house was the backdrop for a feature story on San Francisco’s Chad Robertson’s beach grilling recipes in Bon Appetit




Chicken Under a Brick (or Rock)
1. Place butterflied chicken, skin side down, on the grill grate over a medium-low fire or medium gas heat. Weigh down chicken with a foil-wrapped brick, cast-iron skillet, or stone so the meat is splayed evenly against the grill.

2. After about 15 minutes, when the skin is golden and beginning to crisp, turn the chicken and cook it on the bone side. Ditch the brick.

3. Let meat rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

We all agreed that the pictures on your website are good but they don’t do your house justice.  Al and I had the master bedroom and I loved the outdoor shower. The pool was wonderful, (much larger than we expected) and the lounging areas were great for sun worshippers and those wanting to read in the shade.  You were right… didn’t feel like there were 12 people there.  The food was fabulous….I’m so glad you suggested Augustina cook for us.  The first night Paulie made Dorado fish over a campfire.  Augustina made shrimp for our tacos, etc. and it all tasted wonderful.  Breakfast was my favorite.  The fresh fruit and yogurt along with eggs or pancakes and whatever she made that day was outstanding. We all had such a wonderful time and were very happy with Paulie and Augustina’s attention to detail.   On the last day Augustina showed us how to make her fabulous guacamole.  As we said our good-byes, Rigo said his mom was sad that we were leaving.  I think she enjoyed having us there just as much as we enjoyed being there.

We are alive and well and living the good life as you can imagine.The house is amazing. The photos on the internet just don’t do it justice. Zeb, Johnny, Christian and Wes have taken my husband under their wing. They have become surfing buddies, heading out each day at the crack of dawn only to return at 2pm for one of Augustina’s lovingly prepared meals.  We are having a blast. My husband is already planning his next trip back and we still have 3 more days here before we head to Patzcuaro.  Poli and Augustina are the best… Beautiful people with wonderfully gracious spirits… and the food is always spectacular. You’ve created a little nirvana at the edge of the ocean. Thank you for allowing us to partake.

I’m in heaven!! Casa Creando Olas is just magnificent. Without a doubt, the best design I have seen in this area. The “no windows” allows you to experience this outrageous setting to the fullest!!! I am forever spoiled and will enjoy every single second that I’m here! Today was sooo good with some head high sets. Tomorrow is supposed to be bigger and last a few days so we couldn’t be happier.  Poli and Augustina have been great. The food is wonderful as you said.  We love our room, the beds are terrific and we’re sleeping like logs. It simply doesn’t get any better than this!

Thank you Mike!!!

The trip was amazing. Your house is unbelievable. We had great waves every day. The last 2 days where overhead solid at Saladita.  Augistina and Poli are great, the food was great, and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Would love to take my wife and kids down they would love it.  Thanks again I look forward to my next trip to Saladita, you definitely have the place to stay.
