About the Owner
5 based on 10 traveler reviews
Highly recommend this place to others, many things to do, or just sit in the sun on the patio or beach and enjoy. Local people are all very friendly, good food, stores have everything you need. A car may be nice for traveling to Kino Viejo, otherwise walking, biking will get you around Kino Nuevo. We felt very safe here, and enjoyed the experience.
We absolutely LOVED IT!!!!! (Sierra Vista, AZ)
The property was super clean, the rooms impeccable, plenty of towels and linens in each room. There was a small electrical burner in the tortuga for a quick breakfast. The kitchen in the Pelican was beautiful and ready for our family gathering at meals... Each of the rooms were equipped with TV's and DVD players.... and huge selection of movies.....
We'd sit out on the balcony to have our family meals and relax.... The views from the balcony and from each of the rooms were absolutely spectacular.....no restaurant or hotel could have beat this....
The decor was in each of the rooms and around the home was gorgeous... tremendous attention to detail to say the least... the beds and sitting areas very clean and comfortable....the property owners were friendly and helpful and respected our privacy.... it almost felt like they weren’t even there... Maps and local info were printed out and left in each of the rooms. Beach Toys, kites, and kayaks were available to us for use....
We absolutely loved everything about this place!!!!!
This is great for any family looking for a quiet and serene getaway... away from the crowds.... beautiful clean sand and swimming conditions....and a wonderful time!!! I know we'll be staying here again!!!
BTW: If you're afraid to drive into mexico, dont be... although there's tons of construction in Hermosillo, the property owners made sure to provide us with up to date, safe, directions to help us get to kino with ease!!!

Casa Tortuga Pelican - Aug 15, 2008 Stay
Our Week at the Pelican Penthouse
It was exciting to see dolphins and fun watching the pelicans diving for food. We had views of the ocean from every location in the studio (except for the bathroom) and the sound of the waves was our favorite music. We also enjoyed long walks on the beautiful sandy beach, our private beach most days.
We liked the casual beach restaurants that offered great food and value (missing the torritos already), but also enjoyed being able to purchase fresh fish directly from the local fisherman and dine on our balcony with amazing views of the stars and sound of the waves.
Thank you Perry and Carolyn for being sensitive of our privacy yet sharing time with us. Although being first time visitors we felt very comfortable. We appreciated learning about your community and admire your devotion to it and our environment.
P.S. Once we returned to Arizona Duane bought me a brightly painted wooden pelican for our patio as a reminder of our visit and a request for a quick return trip.
Activity and Interests
Beach walking, shell gathering, swimming, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, general rest and relaxation!
We are on site, as this apartment is attached to our permanent home; so we are available to answer
questions, help you learn about the community, and address any particular needs you might have.
Kino is a very quiet, low-key place. One should not expect to find discos, bars, or glitzy shops.
There is plenty of opportunity to purchase good craft items at shops in the fishing village of Old
Kino and from vendors along the beach and main street. Seri Indians come by frequently with their
collector-quality, fine baskets, stone carvings, and shell/bead/bone/seed necklaces. They love to
trade (reduce their prices) for good quality clothing, toys, and household items; so consider
cleaning out your closet before you come!
There are three Automatic Teller Machines in Kino where you can get cash at a good exchange rate.
