About Terri Kahui

My husband Tim, big waver surfer, and I have traveled the world and decided to make Puerto our 2nd home, with our teenage daughter.

I'm a dog lover with 1 Pitt bull , and 1 Pomeranian.

We own properties in different parts of the world, love to hang with our friends and have great food especially in Puerto.

Terri Kahui purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Terri Kahui chose Santa María

Wre love this property for the views. We are a surfing family, we lived here when it was a dusty little town and I used to ride my horse to Dans in the morning to get my coffee. We also love the fact that we can walk to everything in Puerto; great restaurants, Happy hour, the market for fresh food shopping and groceries.

After coming here in 1992, we fell in love with this place and it still holds the original vibe that Puerto had back then.

What makes this apartment unique

Things you will love at Casa Lily are the location, the privacy, the swimming pool with kiddies pool. Wonderful gardens - pick your own limes ,herbs, and passion fruit.

The beautiful view from the Penthouse reaches out over the tree tops to a beautiful ocean sunset ... the Penthouse was built to chill in .

Casa Lily Penthouse

  • 4 of 5

Casa Lily is a beautiful property with a wonderful garden. The location is excellent for an early morning stroll on Zicatela beach or for a nice dinner on the beach. The view from the penthouse is not quite the same as in the photos as the palm trees have grown and now partially block the view, especially the sunset. while we enjoyed our 6 week stay at Casa Lily, the one thing we did miss is being able to sit outside without having to go down to the garden.

Casa Lily is THE BEST in Puerto Escondido!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Casa Lily twice and each time we loved the fantastic view from our windows and the proximity to the beach. Being able to walk on the beach in either direction and discover so many treasures, like secluded beaches, thatched roof restaurants and bars on the beach, fresh coconut vendors, places where hundreds of sea birds gather, hilly walks through charming neighborhoods where you can find sidewalk cafes, ethnic restaurants, arts and crafts and beach wear boutiques, surfers' hang outs, juice bars, and so much more!

Ana is the vivacious woman who ensures that you have all you need while staying at Casa Lily. This paradise on Zicatela Beach is truly our home in Puerto Escondido thanks to the warm and friendly owner, Maxine, Ana, and the staff. We'll be back!

This is one of the best vacation spots in Mexico we have found to date. Perfect location, fantastic owner and staff. Grounds are groomed daily, pool is very well maintained. We stayed in the penthouse unit which has fantastic views of the ocean and the breeze coming through all the windows keeps things quite comfortable and we did not need to use the air conditionting during our 2 week stay. Very quiet and safe gated complex. Kitchen had everything you would need for most food preparation. This is definatley a 5 star villa in every way. We are returning in February 2015 for another 2 week stay, this time in the second floor unit which we looked at during our previous stay and it looks fantastic as well. Highly recommended, hats off to the owner's and staff for their hard work to keep this ocean villa in such great condition. Wish it was time to go now.....cheers.

We rented Casa Lily (middle unit) for a week in February with our 2 kids. We loved the cleanliness of the place and the property. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood one block away from Playa Zicatella and a 5 minute walk from the busy Zicatella area. Very convenient for breakfast as it is a block away from Dan's Café Deluxe, famous for its breakfasts and weekend only fish tacos. Further down at the end of Calle Jacarandas on the right, there is another little open air restaurant where we had several good meals.

The Casa is tastefully decorated and conveniently equipped. But the highlight for us was the swimming pool. We planned our days to be back from the beach around 4pm to enjoy the pool and our kids pretty much learned to swim in it.

We will definitely return next year.

Loved our time at Casa Lily!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a week there on the main floor apartment and absolutely loved our time there. It was so convenient to walk in and out of our kitchen into the backyard. We loved using the pool to cool off because the waves were quite big in the ocean. We really enjoyed surfing and experiencing the restaurants and activities affiliated with Puerto Escondido. We felt very safe and I would definitely go back! For a bigger group, just rent more floors of the condo!! Beautiful place and immaculately kept!
