Why Property Manager chose Centro Historico
We chose to purchase a home in Mazatlan due to the wonderful climate and outstanding food in the area. The historic district has beautiful colonial architecture and maintains the feel of a true Mexican town with the advantage of being steps away from the ocean. Our home is on a quiet street within walking distance of everything from the Plaza Machada with it's restaurants and cultural events to the malecon that rambles for miles along the ocean.

My wife, and two (more or less) adult children spent ten nights in this property. We were a bit nervous, having not used VRBO before, but the photos of the property were lovely, so we had high hopes.
We were not disappointed in the least! The home was beautiful, and if you’re looking for a non touristy, colonial feeling part of the city, with narrow, clean streets, in walking distance of the Malacon and innumerable small eateries and shops, this is a wonderful choice.
We were there in early June, hot and humid, but the small private pool in the walled courtyard was a perfect solution to a steamy walk. The AC was cold and needed, but only available in the bedrooms. At first this concerned me, but we found the air passing through the living room was usually enough, and the pool was our refuge if it was particularly hot.
The Centro Histórico area in which this home is located, is undergoing a gentrification with much help from the local government. Police presence was frequent, but even walking late at night through narrow streets, I never felt unsafe. There are literally dozens of boutique shops and small eateries in a wide range of prices within a ten minute walk.
If you want an experience where you order your drinks poolside and can order tours from the concierge (nothing wrong with that), then this isn't the place for you. But if you want to relax in a quiet, elegant property surrounded by colonial Spanish streets just a few minutes from the sea wall, this is a wonderful choice, and well worth it for a small group or family.
Amazing! Perfect Location!
What an amazing introduction to the beautiful city of Mazatlan! Staying at Casa Romanita de la Pena 123 is not only a beautiful location in the historic district but it is a beautiful place to stay. The home is well appointed with light-filled spacious, airy rooms. Each of the three bedrooms has an en suite bathroom. There is a lovely living area, with a dining room and a large kitchen. French doors lead out to the patio, pergola and pool with bubbling, soothing fountain. Around the corner, the stairs under the canopy of the mango tree lead you up to the rooftop, which is a nice way to begin the day with a cup of coffee. Dear Itzel welcomed us and showed us around and was available if we had any questions during our stay. Truly, I can’t wait to return to Casa Romanita de la Pena 123.
Our family stayed in this home for 5 days. The proximity to the water and to good restaurants/entertainment is perfect. The home itself is even better in person than the pictures. Absolutely beautiful. the patio area with pool is perfect for your morning coffee. Most importantly, the home felt VERY safe at all times. We are already planning our next trip and will be staying here again!
Stunning! Peaceful! Beautiful! Surpassed our expectations in every way.
This 10 day vacation to MZT was my favorite vacation of all time, largely due to this amazing home. It looks beautiful in the pictures, but pictures don't do this place justice. From the moment we walked in, we were taken aback by the high ceilings and how large the house is. Upon arrival we were met by the property manager who is also the architect of the house. Pepe is very friendly and showed us around the home. From there we took a very short walk over to the malecon and enjoyed all the sights, sounds, and flavors the playa has to offer. Breathtaking architecture, friendly people, amazing food, and adventure were all right around the corner from this amazing home. The rooftop terrace was the perfect place to unwind after a long day, and our kids loved the pool. The kitchen and large dining table were perfect for our large family. The bathrooms were well stocked with plenty of towels and we really enjoyed the large over-sized showers. The internet clocked in at about 20mbps which is plenty fast enough for our kids to watch youtube on multiple devices and for my oldest to stream video games on his PS4. There is a seperate office where I could have worked from, but who wants to work on vacation right?
If I could rate this home a 10 I would. We are very thankful to have stayed in this home and will most certainly be booking again With Eva and Michael next year when we return to MZT.
Our second stay here.
Thanks again for another relaxing visit. Wonderful space and location. Enjoyed our walks everywhere, to the beach, local restaurants and exploring the streets (now redone) of Centro Historico.
Fabulous stay at Casa Marez!
Casa Marez is as beautiful as it appears in all the VRBO pictures - it completely renovated exquisitely furnished. The three large bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are perfect for three couples. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and everything needed for making guacamole and huevos rancheros. The location could not be better! Located on a quiet street in the “Centro” just two blocks away from the Malcon, the lovely ocean front 5 mile ‘boardwalk’ from the Centro to the big hotels in the “Golden Zone”.
Everything is within walking distance...and what isn’t is easily accesses by the ever present golf cart “pulmonias” or the “red trucks”. We enjoyed the sunset views from the top of the Posada Freeman hotel, deep sea fishing with Aries Charters out of the El CID marina, and .... the incredible beach on Stone Island (Isla de la Piedra) which goes on for MILES. Plan to spend the day over there relaxing at Lety’s and enjoying a wonderful lunch.
Casa Marez is just blocks from the old square which has many, many fine restaurants. Dinner at Casa 46 is a must as is Topolos. An don’t miss the opportunity to shop at the Mercado for fresh ingredients for guacamole and huevos rancheros. Fabulous location!
