Payment is to be made by cashier’s cheque, money order, bank draft or direct bank deposit (if you are in Canada) for the initial deposit and the final payment.  In order to keep costs down credit cards are not accepted at this time.

A refundable security/damage deposit of $300.00 US is due with the final payment and will be returned within 14 days of departure, after inspection of the casa for damage or breakage of items. 

The occupancy of the Casa is limited to the persons indicated on your confirmation. Exceeding this limit is a direct violation of our rental agreement and a penalty of $100.00 US per extra person per night will be levied and you could be asked to vacate the premises.

All rates are subject to change without notice, but your booking will be honoured at the quoted rate once the initial deposit has been received.



We are four long time friends who get together every year to catch up with our lives, enjoy a vacation and generally relax — and relax we did at Casa Terra.
Everything was just great. The  pool and casa were very clean, everything was lovely–even better than the photos.  Gloria was wonderful and Maria was THE BEST for massages!  
Several times we walked along the beach into La Cruz for meals and visited the fresh fish markets.  For just a few pesos we took a taxi back to the house, hit the pool and generally relaxed, only to do it all again the next day.
Marilyn was great to work with and the information we received before our arrival was most valuable.

When we walked in, my son said “this is the first time that a place is even better than the pictures”
He was right! We could have stayed right there without ever exploring other cities. While the boys were off on a canopy tour, my daughter and I had wonderful massages by Maria. That evening we had a fantastic meal prepared by a wonderful local couple. 

Casa Terra is in a safe gated community complete with a guard on the beach. We never felt unsafe in this area and the town of La Cruz is charming with some great restaurants. I hope we get to go back next year. Thanks, Marilyn, for all the thoughtful suggestions and recommendations.
