Paula & Jack have an awesome love story!.....They dated for a few months back in college in 1980, then went their separate ways. Each of them lived full lives before reconnecting on Facebook back in 2009. Went on one date and have been together ever since. They got married in 2016!
Jack and Paula pride themselves in being a concierge service for their guests. They are available to help you plan excursions, find great places to eat, advice on Car Rentals & Real Estate in The Yucatan and whatever you might need to make your stay as fun and comfortable as possible.
Both Jack and Paula, along with their 3 rescue dogs, Feo, Chico & Emma, love hosting guests in their beautiful beach home. Their love of Mexico and the Yucatan is contagious!....You will love it here at Casa Preciosa!
*Please note that most of the year our little village is very quiet, but during Mexican holidays, Semana Santa and weekends , our village comes alive with Mexican festivities, fireworks, families on the beach and at times, loud music! Its all a part of the experience of being in 'real' Mexico!
