Beautiful garden and pool
Beautiful garden and pool. Roomy house. Bathroom and bedroom is spacious.

Rachel C
We really enjoyed it!
“We stayed at Casa Helena for two weeks and really enjoyed it. The pool is great for cooling off in the afternoon, the rooftop deck is a great place to drink your coffee and watch the sunrise. There are birds, hummingbirds, and Iguanas all around the well-landscaped property. The kitchen is spacious and well-stocked. The neighborhood is pretty relaxed with a nice mountain view and close to a handful of restaurants. The beach is about a 10-minute drive away, so would recommend having your own vehicle to stay here.”
