History and About Us

Casa Oasis was originally a small horse ranch known as 'Rancho Contento'. The ranch was owned by two Americans from Arizona, Peggy L and Sam D who ran the ranch that contained four horse stables. They converted one stable into a bedroom which today is our Uno (Casita 1 ). We have renovated the other three stables into two bedrooms (Casitas Dos and Tres), with the middle stable divided and converted into kitchenettes and baths for Casitas Dos and Tres.

Your hosts Robert (right in photo) and his spouse Mark (left) purchased the property in the summer of 2019. During the fall of that year they converted the stables into guest rooms and replaced the original cobblestone walkway with a concrete walk and patios.
Our Casa is painted in vibrant colours that reflect the country of Mexico. In addition, we have two beautiful wall murals created and painted by artist Rachel Finklestein that present images of Jalisco and Mexico. Everywhere you go in Mexico you see colourful arts and handicrafts, buildings in various colours and a culture that in itself is very colourful and rich. We have attempted with our Casa and your visit to capture that same vibe.
Besides Robert and Mark, four lovely dogs call Casa Oasis home.
