Client Reviews

Well, we are back home and missing the warmth of Mazatlan! It was 24 degrees when we got back to Seattle.

Thank you both so much for making our vacation so wonderful; everything was great and we really appreciate all the work you did to make our time easier from setting up our Christmas tree and purchasing groceries to including us in the orphanage visit and transporting us all back and forth. 

The trip to the orphanage was one of the highlights of our time in Mazatlan and we were so grateful that we were able to participate in both the giving and the visiting. I think of them often and pray for them regularly.

We did go to Topolo’s for dinner (Kathe’s treat) and it was an absolute delight. The food was fantastic and the wait staff were all fun and entertaining. It was such a fun and memorable evening.

Please thank the owners for sharing their very lovely home with us. We enjoyed the luxury and beauty of it every day and hope to be back again.

Let me say that I had my condominium in Vista del Mar managed by ‘the largest management company in Mazatlan’.

I had heard about Mazatlan4Rent, owned by Lionne and Kristen Decker, and was their company was recommended to me just prior to acquiring our condominium.

I chose the ‘big’ management company, and shortly after we decided to associate ourselves with Lionne and Kristen.

This was one of the best decisions my wife and I made. From their cooperative and professional approach to the feeling you get that they are committed to what they do, and are there to provide you with outstanding service with a personal touch that is conveyed both to the renter, and owner, alike.

It is the little things they do, that I strongly believe no other management company in Mazatlan is inclined or even aware should be done to provide your renter with a memorable experience.

This approach I feel will help us get our renters to return the same time next year.  If they do, I know it will because of the caring and unequivocal attention to detail and service that Lionne and Kristen project to our renters.

I am looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship with Mazatlan4Rent, and the Deckers.

This property is so fun & funky. Lots of local art & decorations on the walls. You will find something new (you missed the first/second day) every time you look around the condo. It was nice to have a 3rd bathroom for guests.
The terrace is awesome, with beautiful views of the ocean. You can’t beat the sunsets from this location. Everything is clean and maintained and all your needs are met.
The pool isn’t huge but the water is warm! I would stay here again or recommend it to friends! We have always had good food and great music (Saturday evenings) at Lucky B’s and La Catrina (Wednesday evenings).
If a problem does arise (and it did) Mazatlan4Rent does an awesome job of jumping right on a problem and following up to make sure all is fixed.
This is the 4th year I have rented from Kristen & Lionne and I plan to continue! 🙂

Customer service top notch!

The property is beautiful, very comfortable and great location. The views are magnificent. Better still is the service you receive from Lionne and Kirsten.

They are extremely helpful and are committed to see that you have an over the top experience in Mazatlan. They have a number of properties that they manage, so look no further. You will be well taken care of.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at El Secreto rental home. The home was beautifully decorated and very much like home. A place to call home away from home. Lionne, the house manager, was very helpful, polite and courteous with our family.

We had a great experience, enjoying the city of Mazatlan and having a safe and comfortable home to come to after enjoying the beautiful beaches of Mazatlan.

We will recommend this route of renting a home in el Secreto to all our friends and anyone who reads this review. Thanks for all your assistance in making this a great vacation for our family.

The Mufflers

A lovely home with a wonderful outdoor area (199 Dona Sol) – on the 3rd fairway of the Moro golf course. It is about a 10 minute walk to the main entrance of the El Cid complex and the beach – very convenient – you don’t really need a car. And it’s about 20 minutes to the grocery store although you will want to take a cab or pulmonia home.

The house is small but is open concept with lots of windows.

All the amenities include a washer & dryer and internet access. The house, pool and grounds are very clean. Lionne & Kristen were great property managers – always available whenever we needed them. We spend two comfortable months here last winter (2011) and would rent this place again.



First Impression – WOW! And it stayed that way!
We loved everything about this condo and Mazatlan! From the minute we arrived at Horizon Sky we were amazed at the location and accommodations.
Here’s a quick list:
1. The Team at Mazatlan4Rent and Horizon were fantastic! They greeted us warmly and gave us a full tour of the community and amenities and the condo itself. (Juan at the security desk was great all week – always a wave and smile!)
2. The amenities: that pool! We had so much fun in the pool, lounging in the shallow end, taking in the view from the infinity side. We didn’t get a chance to use the fitness room or community room – too busy at the pool and at the beach.
3. The condo. Wow – top floor, penthouse! I didn’t even realize it when we booked! Loved the view, zero noise from neighbors – you’re on the top! The condo had everything we could possibly want – full kitchen and set up, huge dining table, living room and cable TV, balcony, three full bedrooms and laundry.
Plus lots of beach towels for us to use! I did recommend they replace the master bath shower head…it was spraying in all the wrong directions. Otherwise everything worked perfectly.
4. The location – Yes! It was central to the Golden Zone and Centro and across from the beach. Very easy to get around from this location. Oh, the condo also had very helpful binders with restaurant and tourist suggestions, as well as local customs for us to be aware of (I never knew the grocery baggers work for free and only get peso tips as wages. This was helpful!)
As well as expected costs for golf cart (taxi) rides, etc. We appreciated the suggestions!
Finally – the value for this rental was stellar. You get every bang for your buck and then some. Highly recommend Mazatlan4Rent – they were superb.
This was our first time using Mazatlan4Rent and first time in Mazatlan and we’ll be back again and again and again…

I just returned from five amazing days with a group of 15 at the Del Fin Oceanfront Villa and I cannot THANK Lori, Lionne, Ray, Anjelica, Alejandra, and Andres enough for such an AMAZING time! The staff at Mazatlan4Rent helped my friends and I pull off an incredible surprise for our spouses.

When booking the property, Lori was so kind to answer my one million questions about the house, the staff, the food and Mazatlan itself. She helped us book transfers, recommended restaurants & excursions, create a menu, and even grocery shopped for us.

She also picked up birthday décor, cakes and little surprises to make the weekend extra special.

The house is lovely — it’s a true oceanfront estate with breathtaking ocean views, especially during sunrise and sunset. Yes the pool is cold, but just like any cold — jump in and keep moving, you’ll get used to it plus it was pretty warm out so the cold water was a welcome break.

The bedrooms are comfy and large, the living area is decorated beautifully and the large kitchen table was such a treat to have meals on with the amazing ocean views. We also loved the large kitchen counter where we learned how to make salsa, chilaquiles and some delicious pancakes from Anjelica and the rest of the staff!

The house aside, the staff at Mazatlan4Rent is what made our trip to Mazatlan amazing! The fact that they took care of everything and catered to all of our requests was beyond amazing.

My friends and I cannot wait to return to Mazatlan and stay with you again!

Thank you Lori for giving us such great memories to cherish for years and years to come — you really made our trip perfect. We are so grateful for your kindness and generosity! Cheers!!

Property Management, Vacation rentals, Property development – All very important and consume precious time and assets. All are very important projects that are very expensive financially and are time consuming when going through the process.

Personally my back ground has been in Tourism and Hospitality for the past 30 years.  Seldom do companies or businesses meet my level of expectations.  However in dealing with both Lionne & Kristen, they both continue to not only meet my expectations, BUT they always find a way to exceed my high and demanding level quality service.  They are professional, kind, considerate, helpful, extremely well connected, respectful, organized, have wonderful attention to detail and are really fun people.

We have put considerable trust with Lionne and Kristen, and have been very pleased with each aspect of service delivery from both of them.

We look forward to a long lasting relationship with Mazatlan4rent, and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a Property Manager/Developer.
