A wonderful imaginative place, with much love in every detail; close to nature and in absolute tranquility - allowing to listen to the sea and birds. Thank you Arthur and Maaike for making our stay such a pleasurable experience!
La Joya really is a jewel! You can expect to reconnect with nature and the ocean without being disturbed by anyone, perfect for focus and meditation. We enjoyed thoughtful and delicious breakfasts, complete with freshly baked bread every morning. The unspoiled beach made for amazing walks, with only the occasional local fisherman and friendly neighbours passing by. A magical place and the most gracious hosts, we thoroughly enjoyed the company of all those at La Joya! Thank you
Es nuestra primera experiencia con Airbnb, nos encantó gracias a Arthur y Maaike, crearon un lugar magnífico para descansar, nos encantó el estilo de su instalación, el paseo en su playa y en la noche uno se duerme con el sonido del mar. Si quieres unas vacaciones tranquilas aquí las obtendrás. La playa Agua Blanca está cerca y se encuentra la diversión y mariscos deliciosos, sobre todo, ostiones gigantes recién pescados. Ten cuidado con el GPS de (Hidden by Airbnb) Map, siempre nos llevó por caminitos indebidos, es importante leer y seguir las instrucciones que les de Arthur antes de llegar.
Arthur & Maaike's place is called La Joya (The Jewel) for a good reason! A real paradise and a peaceful retreat, thanks!
It was a pleasure meeting Arthur and his wife. And it is certainly a pleasure to say how wonderful our stay in La Joya was. It turned out to be exactly as depicted on the website, with peaceful and wonderful views . The room was large and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped and the entire house well-maintained and quiet. All was spotlessly clean and the linens and towels generously supplied. The mid-week cleaning was an unexpected bonus. The house could not be better located and your suggestions provided an insider's view of the zone. I must also compliment Arthur helping us when our car got stuck in the sand.
This is the most incredible place we have ever stayed at! We were in a group of 6 and stayed here for a week and we had the best experience ever! The hosts Arthur and Maaike helped us with everything they could and were all the time so caring and making sure that we had everything we needed. They really went above and beyond our expectations! The breakfast you get in the morning is incredible and over the top! So much delicious and special food with homemade bread, pancakes, pizza, noni juice, almond milk... Simply incredible and the best breakfast in the world! It's 20m to a private beach in an incredible garden. The whole place has just the best atmosphere, is perfect for relaxing and you don't want to go anywhere else anymore. The rooms are incredible and so luxurious (the photos don't do any justice.) We had the best week ever! Thank you so much! P.S. Very suited for Yoga-Retreats! Awesome Rooftop to do Yoga right by the sea on a natural permaculture farm. Incredible good!
This is an amazing and unique place! I totally enjoyed every single day at La Joya.. It's definitely more beautiful than on the pictures. Can't be more amazed by the cleanliness of this beautifully designed place. Every detail is perfect and you can see the love put in there. Maaike and Arthur are two great hosts who provided one of the best healthy breakfasts I ever tried. It's crazy how high standard this place is and at the same time located in the middle of nowhere at the wild shores somewhere in Mexico - A true jewel! It's a quiet place with relaxing surrounding. I wouldn't recommend this place for people looking for nightlife, or party. But if your up for long beach walks, sunrise yoga on the roof top or a sunset meditation on the terrace this is totally your place. I would definitely come back, thanks so much Maaike and Arthur for this beautiful experience!
A little paradise! Beautiful place with amazing hosts, great view, delicious breakfasts (all fresh). I would love coming back soon!
Fresh coconuts and papaya from the property still feels like a dream. I'm looking forward to how this place develops in the future.
We immensely enjoyed our stay at La Joya. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful.
Arthur has not only created a visual feast of native plants, fruit trees and palms, but he has cultivated a mission of compassion for the land and the people of Oaxaca.
A true Oaxacan Jewel. I would definitely stay here again!
The room provided by Arthur and his girlfriend was literally perfect. The view was amazing and the house is a moments walk from the beach.
