Everything You Hope It Is and More
We absolutely loved our stay here! The views are incredible. There is a small beach here perfect for ocean viewing. (Swimming is not recommended on this side) We stayed in the Penthouse. The private deck and pool are such a treat and we loved having it to ourselves. The property itself faces the Caribbean, perfect for sunrise viewing. We had no issues at all. The location is perfect for getting anywhere on the island. There is parking for your golf cart or you can easily catch a cab right outside. It is away from the downtown hustle, an easy walk to Mango's Cafe or the Chedraui if you like to walk. The area is very safe. The apartment has everything you need for your stay. Housekeeping came in once during our stay to freshen up. Michael was very responsive to our questions and the other person staying there is a long time returnee to this propety. We cannot wait to go back ourselves!
Beautiful property with all the comforts of home
Perfect spot to kick back.
The studio at Casa Rosa is one of those nicely kept places with an “everything you need, nothing you don’t” kind of vibe. Clean, simple and right on the water.
The posted photos are accurate – It’s on the 2nd floor and has one big room with a small kitchen area and separate bathroom with shower.
There’s a narrow deck out the sliding glass door that faces the ocean with a couple of cushioned lounge chairs. It's a sweet view and this side has great light in the mornings. If you leave the sliding glass door open in the evening you are serenaded to sleep by crashing waves.
The wider part of the studio deck gets sun most of the day and is also next to the studio door (and penthouse door.)
We were there for 5 days and only saw the other guests a handful of times. We did get invited up to the penthouse deck (Thanks, Dave!) to see the impressive view and great rooftop pool.
If you haven’t been to Isla before, it may be tough to tell on the location, but for some context you can pretty much get anywhere on the island from Casa Rosa for a $3 cab ride. (Or you can walk to Playa Norte/Central downtown in 20 mn if you want the exercise. About the same if you want to walk to Soggy Peso.)
If you head south, it’s only a couple of blocks to convenience stores, Isla Brewing Co. and a little farther to grocery stores.
You have options on the enjoying the beach: The Casa Rosa side of the island is rocky but scenic (bring water shoes if you want to get in). But there are a number of small sandy areas that worked nicely for a beach blanket and towels as you work your way to the north. Even in February we were usually the only people except for a few beachcombers wandering by. (So, secluded enough if you want to get rid of your tan lines.) By comparison the beach at Playa Norte is quite busy if you’re looking for a long sandy stretch of beach with more energy, restaurants and bars.
The VRBO transaction went smoothly thanks to Michael who was always quick to email back with answers. Definitely recommended, looking forward to a return trip!
We have been to Isla on many occasions always looking for the perfect place we found it in Casa Rosa
Great location great view very clean.
In all our travels we have never spent so much time at a property as we did at Casa Rosa. We truly enjoyed our stay in the Penthouse.
Rose and Micheal have thought of everything.

I absolutely loved it!
Perfect location, view, amenities and cleanliness!
Enjoyed our week in the studio. Wonderful location. Short walk to grocery stores and local taco shops. The studio had everything you could want to to eat in.
