About John Stevens

I have owned this home for 15 years..I use to have a landscape business in Arizona...When things would become too stressful I would come to San Carlos to recharge my batteries and unwind...Its a paradise here! Its a lot smaller then Puerto Vallarta but still it's a great location for all ocean activities such as diving, kayaking, whale and dolphin watching. There's also a golf course very close, great restaurants and bars...I've also had meditation groups and yoga groups enjoy the peacefulness of the area. No matter were you stay, my wish is you enjoy this special place which is San Carlos.

John Stevens purchased this studio in 1995

Why John Stevens chose Mexico

(This property is not the place to have drunken parties) It is a place to unwind relax and get away from the grasp of the tornados that life throws are way... Its perfect for romantic get away or family time , but most of all a place to enjoy the quality of life rather then the standard of life...

What makes this studio unique

The reason I fell in love with this property is it gave me moments of not thinking of the struggles that life throws are way. Instead I find myself watching the birds catching fish or the dolphins and seals that often visit. Sometimes I get to be 9 years old again filled with curiosity as I look at what just washed ashore or I wonder were the boats are going as they pass by... We all need a mental break every now and then and I truly believe this place offers that..

Slice of Heaven is a San Carlos Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

For my husband and I, it's always been the little details that count. Many places in San Carlos have mismatched dishes, silverware and old pans. But Slice of Heaven surpasses this issue in every way. Not only does the kitchen provide everything you could need to impressively entertain your favorite guests, but the bed is super comfy, the towels, including beach towels, are plush, and there are lotions, a blow dryer and toiletries just in case. The little beach and ramada are peaceful and relaxing. If that wasn't enough, John really does notice the special details. I mentioned our visit was due to our anniversary, and we had a lovely bottle of chilled Lambrusco waiting for us on arrival. His family is sweet, and his eldest is willing to help with luggage if needed. A great central spot to enjoy San Carlos and its refreshing sea, sand and sun. Thank-you for a lovely destination!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

No amount of words or pictures can describe this place, even the road to get there was spectacular - winding cobblestone up the side of a mountain, with the Sea of Cortez peeking through gorgeous cliffside houses. But I will try my best to do this review justice.

When we I arrived we were greeted by John, the owner, who asked us about our drive from Tucson and if we had ever been to the area. He then took us down some steps to where we were going to be staying, but before we could make it into the room we were hit by the breathtaking view of our little cove in San Carlos Bay, right outside our front door. It was the deep blues with the mountain backdrop, the sailboats rocking in the water, the sea breeze... you have to see it for yourself. After a few minutes of disbelief, John gave us the rest of the tour and took us down to the beach where there was a giant hammock under a cabana and a fire pit in the sand, both of which we made ample use. He then showed us the room, it was was beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you could need, including some ice cold beers that we cracked immediately and some champagne for later. Finally, he showed us how to work the TV that we never used and we parted ways. John left us alone, but was always close by in case we needed anything.

Our time at the casita was incredible to say the least. The bar area was great for eating with an amazing view and relaxing in the hammock beneath the palms. We hung out on the beach mostly, taking morning swims and stargazing at night. And although it is secluded, the house is in the middle of town, which is a short drive to the bigger beaches, as well as all of the shops, restaurants and bars.

I can go on and on but like I said, words cannot do it justice. We had an amazing time and we cannot wait to book it again. It was a perfect romantic getaway. Thanks John!

Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

We had two incredible weeks at John's seaside bungalow. John is just the best host and made our stay so memorable. We shared a great dinner at Blackies, incredible food and fun decor. Also a perfect steak at the Sunsets restaurant that is located on the beach and also recommended by John, and next door is the Soggy Peso for the best shrimp cocktail while listening to the waves. We spent most afternoons on the great beach just down the steps; sandy beach, great breezes, swimming and John also has kyaks available. We loved the grest seashore decor in our bungalow. Every night we slept with open windows listening to the waves and the breeze in the palm trees. We BBQ'd several times and enjoyed our morning coffee at the fun outdoor bar. It was tough saying good bye and hope to return. Thanks John for giving us many great memories and sharing your little piece of paradise. Your mom's pineapple cake was delicious. And before we said goodbye I am sure we spotted one of your mermaids sitting on the rocky shore!!

Second time even more wonderful than the first!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say, we just LOVE this little place!

This was our second visit to John's casita, and this time we brought the kids. It was arguably the best vacation we'd taken together as a family, with the home having everything we could have wanted and the private beach access to keep the kids happy. We basked in the hammocks, kayaked around our little bay, hunted for seashells and learned about all the little things that live in the tide pools. The home is within a short driving distance to awesome public beaches, the marina, restaurants and a really great grocery store that has a full deli. Perfect for picking up meals if you don't feel like cooking.

John is always the most gracious host, and the kids just loved him. We'll be back again and always talk this place up to our friends. Its all about atmosphere and location and this beautiful little home has it all!

Your own private paradise...

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed 4 nights and loved every minute. Yes, there's a lot of stairs, but they are extremely well built & well lit at night (and provide a free gym workout). The casita is clean & cute, very beachy & casual, with plenty of open space. It's so pleasant sitting under the covered bar area where our cell phones worked best. The beach is beautiful, and John was so nice to let us use his kayak, and also provided wood for an evening bonfire. On our last night, he even gifted us with a luminaria to send wishes to the mermaids.............our wish is to have the opportunity to do this all again soon!
