We are sisters who have created a "living museum" for you to enjoy both our beautiful beaches and a bit of the history and culture of the area! Our family arrived to this beach community before there were big hotels or even paved roads!
Our home was built in 1928, right across the street from a big pink castle, The Don CeSar Resort and Spa. The views of this iconic building are impeccable! And you will have access to the same beach as the hotel guests, but at much lower prices.
In addition to your two bedroom, one bath private suite in which to relax and unwind, you can enjoy a pristine white sand beach just steps away from the front door.
We invite you to share our home with us.
Casablanca boasts a warm, open living room with a grand piano and a working fireplace, a naturally lit dining room to enjoy breakfast, a cozy parlor for drinks and conversation, and an open air patio space to accommodate groups of any size for social events. In addition to your private suite, you should feel welcome to enjoy access to all common areas.
Interaction with guests
Our family owns and operates a marina with fishing boats, sightseeing boats, shelling excursions, a ferry boat to nearby islands and attractions, in addition to kayak and paddle board rentals. We would be glad to offer you discounted trips if you fancy getting out on the water!
We would also be happy to organize restaurant reservations or in-home services like massages or facials during your stay. Our preferred vendors are licensed professionals that we frequent for our personal health and well-being... and we would be happy to extend their services to you.
We desire to provide a hotel-esque experience, with ample privacy and independence. And for interested guests, we are thrilled for the opportunity to go above and beyond to facilitate a more interactive stay! We are perpetual travelers and having been hosted by countless people in countless countries, we have quite the karmic debt to repay. So ask us anything!
Other things to note
We have parking in our driveway that can accommodate your and your guests cars.
We would be happy to schedule a massage or facial during you stay, either at home or on the beach. Our aesthetician and masseuse can make house calls for your convenience and comfort. Pricing and availability upon request!
I graduated from Florida International University in Miami, FL in May of 2015 and have been traveling nearly non-stop since. Throughout these travels I was blessed to encounter different hosts all over the world that treated me like family. Being able to experience new places and cultures through a local is a beautiful thing! Now that I'm back home and settled, I feel priveledged to return this favor to my fellow travelers. Karma at it's finest.
I absolutely love everything to do with travel and I enjoy doing yoga. I have cultivated my passions into a career with my new business - Om the Go. While traveling I realized I wanted a more lightweight / compact travel mat so I invented a 2-in-1 neck pillow and travel yoga mat called the Asana Pillow. I now have an online store and also sell on Amazon :)
Travel for me is much, much more than a plane ticket to a strange place but more so a new way of seeing things - being able to attain a fresh perspective on the beauty that surrounds me. Whether that beauty is in my backyard or across the Pacific Ocean!
