“Great location, but way too noisy at night”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

First, the positives: Our group consisted of two couples and a two-year old. Within the house, we all had great sized bedrooms and separate baths. Great access to the beach, lots of surfer watching, and good ocean access for swimming. The pool area was nice, though, the pool is unheated, so during the winter, it is more suitable for dipping your feet in rather than diving in. The upstairs sitting area has nice views of the beach and was great for star gazing. The outdoor shower was a nice benefit, the kitchen is a bit out dated, but it served our needs, and the washer and dryer worked well and was well used. The condo is well kept and clean and landscaping and pool were both serviced while we there. The property itself is well maintained. We also enjoyed eating at Zipper's and La Picazon, which are both in walking distance from the condo.

The negatives: This place is located directly next to a public beach access that is WELL used by the locals. The worst night for us was on Saturday when the parking lot turned into an all-night party with, I kid you not, a marching band at 1 AM in the morning. There were numerous cars that evening, cruising through the space, blaring their music with heavy bass, which didn't subside until 5 AM the next morning. But, it wasn't just Saturday night. Every night, we had some sort of music/bass background noise coming from parked cars and typically, it would continue well into the early morning. The condo is also next to a very loud highway, which included trucks blaring their air brakes as they rolled down the highway's hill. The noise was loud enough to drown out the waves during the day and while the road noise does subside during the evening, we then battled the noise from the crowds in the parking lot.

The management company became aware of the extreme noise issues a couple days before our arrival and did offer us an alternate location, but it lacked the access to the beach that we were looking for. So, we came with our ear plugs and tried to make the best of the situation. I write this review because it doesn't seem like there were any recent reviews that talked about the noise levels and the neighbor at the complex mentioned that the crowds have recently been getting bigger and bigger, so this may be a new and very annoying issue with the place. It is too bad because the location is great and the space works well for groups, but the local interference directly impacts your ability to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the beach. We were thankful for great weather and morning walks on the beach to reinvigorate us after challenging nights :)

Kirk and Katie,

Thank you so much for your honest review of Casa Lisa Portobello. The amount of locals using the adjacent arroyo and beach area seems to be increasing as is the amount of noise they produce. As such, we have put an advisory on the listing and we commit to notifying every potential client about the situation. As a company that has been in business for over 16 years, customer satisfaction is very important to us. Again, we truly value your business and appreciate any comments that help us correct issues and provide the best service possible. Sincerely, Tobi

Casa Lisa was very cozy and well maintained. Rooms were cleaned and no bad odors. Kitchen had everything we need to cook and help enjoyed our time. Great beach view and very local to to major stores and shops near by. I felt very relax and comfortable. Thank you Nanci for the recommendation.

“A wonderful house and close to a wonderful beach and ocean!!”
Reviewed 10 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Eight of us(with kids 1 and 6)stayed as a family in this wonderful 3 bedroom house. We were very comfortable with everything we needed. It is close to San Jose and there are many things to do within a reasonable driving distance. We loved the house and the location and would rent again.

“Had a wonderful vacation!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The service provided by Nanci from Baja Sur vacations was outstanding. The private Chef service was incredible, Elmar the Butler was a delight and helped to make it a fabulous vacation.The house was great for the price. The location was average, could see the ocean through the bushes and trees. Some noise late at night from the parties on the other side of the wall. A car rental would have been better as we paid dearly for cab service and was inconvenient to walk to get the cab.
We had a wonderful vacation and hope to do it again.
