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.

Oh my gosh…..where should we start?  Thank you for sharing your incredible house with our family.  You (and your wife) have ruined any chances of us ever finding a more perfectly designed space.  You clearly have the essence of what a Mexico beach house should be.  Your attention to simple detail has created a most elegant space.  Your concept of living “outdoors” is exactly what a beach home should offer.  Just perfect.  I could go on and on about the house and use of space for days.  Augustina and Poli were gracious and warm.   Awaiting our arrival at the front door.    We awoke every morning looking forward to the wonderful breakfast and coffee that awaited.  Such a nice way to start the day.  Then down to the beach and pool till dark.  The waves were great.  Just what we had hoped for. Saladita was wonderful.  We are so happy that we decided to squeeze that week into our summer last minute.  The only regret was that we could not have stayed longer.  We told Augustina and Poli that we would see them in a year with our whole crew.  We will spread the word to our friends and family that there simply is NO other option in the area.  We did not even go to Troncones.  Warm wishes to you and yours, and please let your wife know that we could not have appreciated her style more.

I don’t know if I can go back to NYC after this. This house is the most tasteful and well built house that I’ve ever stayed in, it’s truly amazing. My friends and I are all builders and designers and we feel so lucky to be staying here, thank you. I don’t think any of us could bear moving anywhere else after this so I’ll owe you some more $ when I get back. The surf is great, it’s finally washing the city out of me.  We’re now eating three meals a day here because (like you said) Augustina is the best. Paulie and Augustina are taking such good care of us, it’s crazy.
