What Our Guests Have Said:

Brent & Vonnie

The Stay & Play Program exceeded our expectations! During the program we visited many of the neighborhoods, bays and beach areas to quickly get familiar with the layout of the area. We enjoyed going to several local markets and interacting with many of the residents. The restaurant choices were excellent, giving us a great variety of what Huatulco has to offer. And you gotta keep the cooking class with Jane in the program! We couldn’t be more grateful for all of the Bayside folks who made our stay so memorable. The Bayside team personified one of the key values we felt from so many of the residents – the importance of family. Well done!


Diane I.

We stayed at Eleven by Cosmo. It was perfect location and the condo had everything we needed! Great outdoor balcony, spacious, clean rooms, perfectly equipped. We loved our stay there. Bayside was awesome! They met us at the condo (Marce) and made us feel so welcome. We did the Stay & Play and felt it was a great experience. Our goal was to learn more about the area in hopes of buying in the near future. The Stay & Play package was perfect because we were given many tried-and-true restaurants to dine at (small local owners as well as larger restaurants). The cooking class was definitely a highlight. Bianca gave us a very informative tour of the area and helped us set up some surfing lessons! Overall, Bayside took care of everything we needed and was so personal. It was a great experience.


Michelle & Darren K

After several months of looking into real estate in the Huatulco market, we decided to do the Stay & Play so we could experience the area firsthand. We were not disappointed and immediately decided that this community is exactly what we’ve been looking for! We were not planning on purchasing when we arrived; but after Mike showed us a condo that was just getting ready to go on the market we knew that it was the one for us. We had an accepted offer within a couple of days and we can’t wait to return to get our new home ready for this new phase in our life. We would recommend Bayside Real Estate and Mike to anyone looking for their dream home or investment!


Mike & Joanne – Blackie, AB

Our Stay & Play experience was what sold us.  We were met at the airport by Brent who made us feel so welcomed right away.  On arrival at ViewPoint we met his beautiful wife Erin and together they wasted no time in making us so comfortable and immediately showed us the unit we were interested in.  They began showing us one of the fun spots that very first evening, by taking us out for dinner. Easy to relax and enjoy yourself around them.  Then we went Puerto Escondido and they helped us rent a car, and took us out a couple more times to some of their favorite haunts, but at the same time left us to explore on our own.  Brent was available to answer any and all questions as well as show us all available units.  The Stay & Play was terrific in that we got to live at the development for a week, talk to other owners and really see the area. The most fabulous way to experience what you are getting. Don’t hesitate. 


Dean & Cyndie P – Calgary, AB

Cyndie and I wanted to thank you both for a great experience while visiting Huatulco during our vacation. Brent, to have you meet us at the airport for a personalized pick up and a guided tour as we drove to the condo we could not have asked for anything more. The condo at the Mansiones Cruz Del Mar is beautiful and met our expectations completely. The location between Santa Cruz and La Crucecita was perfect, just a comfortable walk into each town depending on what you wanted to see and do for the evening. Erin was so accommodating the next morning by meeting and showing us all the features the condo complex has to offer including the outdoor patio, gym and restaurant right at the condo (no cooking required if you wished). Erin even took us to the bank to exchange Canadian dollars for Peso’s before heading to the grocery store for items we needed in the condo. We were excited to see other condo projects that you had to offer all close to the towns and harbours, we even saw a cruise ship in port one day which was a cool thing to see. You gave us a good understanding of the product, quality and prices offered for different ranges of condo’s in Huatulco. Without you showing us it would have been difficult to find these on our own, you made it much easier. I would have to say one of the best experiences you and Erin took us on was the “Happy Hour” at Salchi Bay. What a fantastic community of private homes in a community setting. To live this close to the ocean is many peoples dreams and the ones we met that day will certainly agree to that! To top we had a chance to spend Sunday or Funday as we like to call it and bocce ball our way around the beach with a cold one in hand! Sunday is Funday for sure! Cyndie and I hope to spend more time in Huatulco in the near future and you can be sure we will call you and Erin first!

Louis & Caroline L

We dealt with Brent for the purchase of our condo in Santa Cruz, Huatulco. We communicated for a good 6 months before coming down and he has always replied to our emails and countless questions in a timely manner. For 2 weeks he patiently brought us to visit just about every option available in Huatulco & surroundings. Never have we ever felt pressured or being rushed, and we also appreciated his straight shooting. Brent is very knowledgeable of the market, the areas and the pro & cons. He also goes out of his way to inform people on all kinds of topics with his newsletters & web seminars, which nobody else does. We have met with most realtors in the area, and we strongly recommend Bayside Real Estate!

Brian & Lois K

Brent and company were an amazing asset to the whole process. Being first time buyers of foreign property there was extreme trepidation on our part. His knowledge of the process was very reassuring. His selection of people to complete the entire transaction was excellent. He was always available to answer questions and concerns in a timely manner. If he didn’t have an answer for you immediately he knew where to get the answer. Highly recommend Bayside Real Estate Huatulco.

Patty & Rowland C

Brent May and his team of professionals are a great way to get involved in your real estate search in and around the Huatulco area. We used Brent over a couple of years until we found our “perfect” winter condo to purchase. His “no pressure” approach is a needed approach for us. His humour and in depth knowledge on the area and market conditions allowed us to feel fully informed. We would recommend Bayside Real Estate Huatulco for your search of any home or condo from Huatulco thru Puerto Escondido and all areas in between.

Tom & Darlene N

Darlene and I recently had the pleasure of being with Brent May, looking for the perfect property in the Huatulco to Puerto Escondido areas. Part of our problem was that had not firmed up exactly what we wanted. Brent put us up in the Viewpoint development at a nominal cost and spent the better part of a week showing us both the real estate and the lifestyle of the areas of Port Angel, Zipolite, and Mazunte. We eventually settled on purchasing a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo at Cosmos Development in El Arrocito in Huatulco. Brent acted as our representative on the purchase of the property and also assisted in the planning for furniture. I cannot recommend Brent highly enough. He takes the time to ensure that you know exactly what you want and then finds the perfect property. Brent is also very honourable, personable and well-liked by all. We now count him as a friend.

Bonnie & Rollie T

Dear Prospective Buyer: We do not have to spend much time in convincing anyone on the beauty that describes Bahías de Huatulco with its picturesque bays, scenic beaches, and the charming towns. But the prospect of making your dream of owning a Huatulco property a reality can be a daunting and mysterious task. Having a trusted guide to help you navigate through the process is critical. 

We can say without reservation that Brent May (and Erin!) of Own Mexico is that master guide with a strong understanding of the area and an innate ability to recognize the needs and desires of a client. Brent’s honest and non-intrusive approach allowed us to discover and develop our goals in making an informed and contented decision in purchasing our property. A testament to his energy and approach to doing business is seen in the amazing relationships he carries with the local builders and real estate community. We appreciated his understanding of the Mexican purchasing process and he coached us through any apprehensions we may have had. Brent and Erin made our dream a reality! We now have our “Casa de sus Sueños” in Cruz del Mar. We are delighted to share our experiences with Brent and Erin to anyone wishing to follow their dream of owning a home in Huatulco. Brent has our contact information and we would be honoured to stand as a reference to their capabilities.

Without hesitation, we recommend Brent May and in helping anyone wanting to make their dream vacation home a reality. We found Brent always to be very professional to deal with. His assistance was always forthcoming in a timely and accurate fashion without the pressure. Even after the purchase was completed, Brent went beyond his required duty in making sure we, his clients, felt comfortable through the entire buying process.

Brad & Kelley

Recently we had the opportunity to meet and work with Brent May of Own Mexico. When we began we had a list of ideas, questions and concerns. We had been researching properties in and around the area for quite some time while at home in Canada however, we had not been able to narrow down our list of potential properties. Mainly this was due to nervousness of buying in a foreign location. Brent was able at our first meeting to hear what it was that we really wanted. He answered our questions in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. He helped us focus in on what we really wanted and which properties could meet those needs. Brent is such an easygoing person with no pressure at all he showed us our options and let us decide. Then he worked hard for us as a negotiator. We are truly happy with our purchase and could not be happier with our dealings with Brent. I would refer him as a Realtor to anyone interested in “Owning Mexico” as he is the best man for the job in our eyes! Thanks again to Brent, it was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely wife. We look forward to getting to know you better as friends.
