Think of Casa Perlita as your home away from home. This oceanfront house is as cozy and inviting as it gets, and the hosts want nothing more than for you to enjoy all it has to offer.

Inside the house, you’ll find modern furnishings, open airy bedrooms, and breathtaking views. Still not convinced? Here’s what Ana Maria had to say about her visit to Casa Perlita:
“Absolutely wonderful home! It is perfectly decorated and in a great location away from the busy strip in terms of noise but still walking distance to all the restaurants. The two pools are lovely and the entire place was clean and came with drinking water. We loved it so much we wanted to buy the home! Would definitely come back!” - Ana Maria, Airbnb
