    Okay, so we booked this place site unseen, based on the gorgeous pictures of it and the recommendation of our wedding planner, Prisar. I know it will be amazing in person but I thought I'd ask.

    Has anyone seen it in person or better yet attended a wedding there? If yes, do you have candid pictures of the place that you would be willing to email me?

        Hi Anny,

        What are you interested in knowing? We are planning a small wedding 30 - 40 people but the place/grounds can accommodate more (I think up to 125 - need to doublecheck what the sites said). We were deciding between China Blanca and Casa Valerie but picked Blanca because 1) it is newer, completed in 2005 2) outside grounds is larger with a flat top gazebo area already there for the ceremony 3) oceanfront with private steps down to the beach 4) really cool overall design - did you notice how there is water running under the floor from the entrance into the foyer of the house? 5) WC said that Casa Valerie is "nice" but that China Blanca is "amazing."

        I first heard about it when I posted my newbie message and someone replied suggesting China Blanca.

              Funny, but that does make me feel better and I remember seeing that house on the La Punta site -- it's super fab but way out of our price range! BTW - I did see those pictures on the DD's site before. I looked at every villa they had in their gallery so I could get an idea for how weddings could be set up at the different villas we were considering. I just wish there were more pictures of that China Blanca wedding.

              Do you still have the contact info (email address) of that bride? Maybe she would be willing to allow me to view her online wedding album!

                  I'll ask her if I can forward it to you and let you know.

                    Have you asked Prisar about the photos from Heather's wed? I think was at Conchas Chinas, also you can check 3 or 4 pics on prisar web page.

                    Hector and Pris mentioned this house for us, but considering the dates we want they asked for a rental fee of 2 weeks!!! so REALLY out of Budget... LOL.. but it looks AMAZING!!!

                    BTW, you will love Hector and Pris they are amazing and really nice people!!

                      Hi Edna,

                      Priscilla is supposed to send me the layout of the villa and I think she mentioned sending me pics of the wedding she did there too -- I guess that's Heather's wedding? I've only spoken to Priscilla and she seems very nice and accommodating. I'm happy we went with Prisar. Next MAJOR thing we have to choose is the photographer, so I'm trying to not drive her crazy by starting on decorating ideas right now while we still have more important vendor selections to make.

                      I agree that the high season rates for China Blanca is expensive and that's why we went with the first Saturday in June. I'm praying that rainy season doesn't start til mid or late June!
