About Katherine

The Kinsella/James family lives in Washington, DC. We have three daughters. Edgar James is an attorney and Katherine Kinsella is in advertising.

We saw this property, fell in love with it, and purchased it in June 2012. We will continue to rent the property in the future, even after we retire here part of the year.

Katherine purchased this villa in 2012

Why Katherine chose Mexico

Casa Tres Azules is totally private with a twelve mile beach in our front yard and easy access to Puerto Escondido, which is a very special place for those who want to be in an authentic, small Mexican city with great restaurants, people and things to do.

What makes this villa unique

At our home we spend the days on the beach walking, swimming laps in our crystal clear pool, having cocktail sunsets and BBQ's. The deep sea fishing out of Puerto is extraordinary with Marlin, Dorado and other assorted fish. Our home is very comfortable including all pillow-top beds that our guests say are the more comfortable than home. We have high speed wireless internet, a google phone with free calls to and from the US and Canada, and satellite TV with hundreds of channels. Town is eight miles away which keeps it very quiet. We are in a secure, gated small community of only eleven homes. There are many great restaurants in town and a really nice new super market, not to mention the Mercado featuring local merchants which is a must see.

Once again, two years in a row, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at Casa Tres Azules, and once again found everything met and exceeded our expectations. Our party consisted of 2 couples and 2 children and the villa amenities suited us all perfectly. The owners were very responsive to our needs, the local property manager was extremely helpful and the house maid and yard workers were friendly and helpful. We hired a local woman to do all the cooking and marketing which made it like an all inclusive except it was our own very private accommodations. I have no reservations recommending Casa Tres Azules.

Where do I even begin...this was paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 met in Oaxaca on the 16th, and then took an easy flight to Puerto Escondido where taxi took us to the Villa, which is an absolutely stunning Casa whose vibrant colors promised the consonant beauty within. For all of us --an extremely well-travelled group-- our stay at Casa Tres Azules was one of the most memorable vacations all of us have ever had. The house is stunning and beautifully maintained and lacks for nothing. Well appointed kitchen, clear instructions and suggestions about things tondo in the area etc. We ventured out to several nearby towns, charming local restaurants, a turtle sanctuary-- but mostly stayed at the house soaking up the sun and the perfect weather, walking the endless and mostly deserted beach, swimming in that temperate lap pool, watching the glorious display of stars each night. The owners have a strong connection to the local community, and so we felt cosseted and cared for by the lovely staff. I wish I could think of one thing that disappointed, but I cannot. This would be a great place for families or groups of friends looking for an idyllic Pacific retreat. If anything, the pictures don't do it justice. I spent hours photgraphing the house and beach in the varying light. And we all returned home completely relaxed and tan, hoping to return again soon.

Luxury, Tranquil, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Friends and family holiday at Casa Tres Azules did not disapoint us, from the moment we arrived until the time we left we felt welcomed by the amazing staff. Julio greeted us upon arrival with the keys etc but to tell you the truth we were so amazed at the property we really couldn't concentrate on what he was saying, it also helped that my daughter-in-law is from Oaxacca so the lanuguage wasn't an issue, we all changed and jumped into the 28 degree ocean.

Nina arrived the next morning with groceries to start out our day and Philomena cooked us a very delightful breafkast.

We are not needy people but anything you asked for Philomena was glad to do it, I tried doing dishes a few times and she wouldn't hear of it.

Nina the property manager was a phone call away but we never had the need to call her and she respected out privacy.

Katherine your book on Puerto Escondidos was very helpful with your recommendations, we ate out every other night inexpensice cab ride to town but make sure you call the cab an over before you want to go, (mexico time) lol.

Your recommendation for Flor de Maria's restaurant was right on we planned to go there anyway as the owners are from Guelph Ontario and we know them, we were not disapointed. The view from the rooftop of Zicatela was stunning.

Pacho the gardener a man of many talents can't do enough for you, he climped the palms and cut down fresh coconuts for us, built a fire on the beach, and kept the grounds immaculate, you can tell he takes pride in his job.

Lastly Casa Tres Azules, we stayed 2 weeks and seriously I could have stayed until spring, the Casa is spotlessly clean, spacious and decorated very mexican style, between the beds being so comfortable and the sound of the ocean we all slept like babies, no need for a/c with the cool wind blowing in the bedrooms.

We all had our own bedrooms facing the ocean.

I would definetly recommend Casa Tres Azules and only hope we can return next year.

Thank-you Katherin and Edward for sharing your Casa with us.

Hamilton , On. Canada.

The most relaxing family vacation we've ever taken!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Tres Azules the last week of November 2013. We were 3 small families, and the house was amazing! Each family had one of the casitas and the children slept in the TV room, which has 2 beds, and the maid's/mother in law room. It was perfect. We really didn't leave the house much, as there is absolutely no reason to! The beach is AMAZING and very private. We rarely saw anyone else on the beach, just a few fisherman on our morning walks. There is a little lagoon, not too far down the beach where the kids loved to play. We were worried, based on things we'd read, about the undertow and the current, but it wasn't too bad. It was definitely strong at times, but we kept an eye on the kids and they were able to play in the water, boogie board and body surf with no problem. The water was bathtub warm, just perfect. The beach and water were very clean, no debris as we've seen at other beaches along the Pacific. The pool at the house was also amazing. It was perfect for everyone as there is a deeper lap pool area and then a shallow area with a large platform that is great for little kids. As you walk up from the beach to the house, there is a water spigot where you can wash off so as to not track sand into the pool. There is also an outdoor shower on the side of the house near the pool.

I can't say enough good about Nina the house manager and Julio the ground keeper. They were both amazing and so helpful! Julio has a van and you can arrange to have him pick you up at the airport if you aren't planning on renting a car. If you want to go into the city regularly, you'll want a car, but if you are just planning on staying at the house, you could arrange for Julio to help you get into the market or the airport. We had Itzel cook for us while we were there and she was fantastic! She was so friendly and nice to have around and the food was delicious and displayed beautifully. We especially loved the pina coladas and fruit juices that she'd make from fresh coconuts on the property and the fresh pineapples up the street. We would tell Julio what we needed each day and he'd cut them off the trees fresh! Amazing! His wife also makes delicious tortillas and you can have Julio bring them each morning. We truly LOVED every minute of our stay at the house. It was warm and humid, so we stayed in the pool most of the day, but the air conditioners in each room made sleeping very comfortable. Thank you Katherine for sharing your home!

Casa Tres Azules- Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

2 Adults, 3 teenagers- it was a perfect stay. At first, the surf feels like a drumbeat, within an hour, it is like your heartbeat. Never slept better. The pool is fantastic. We all swam laps. The house and bedrooms are great and the grounds beautiful. Be sure to ask for Tony to do your cooking. His meals were all fresh, creative, filling and he is highly informative and a lot of fun. We had a strict vegetarian in our group and he was flexible. Be sure to accompany him shopping. Rent a car. We travelled all over: to Escondido, for surfing lessons, on eco-tours (we helped release tiny baby turtles into the surf). Lots to do in Escondido and Tony (or Nina) can steer you to some great restaurants. Also, for teens, the house is completely online. A fabulous way to spend a restful, interesting weekend with loads of great family time.

Stayed with my girlfriend for an amazing extended weekend in Puerto Escondido!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located directly on the beach. We woke up to sounds of the ocean and a view every morning. The town is about 10 minute drive with a excellent selection of local produce. With good company, the beach, a pool, and internet not many reasons to leave the house. Highly recommend this house!
