Our Daily Cleaning Process


  • Being a Private House allows us to have full control of the entry and exit of providers (Pool and Gardener) which we can prohibit the entry during the statistics of the guests if they require it.
  • We can attend with a minimum amount of personnel:
    Housekeeper, Maintenance Man, Cook (Optional)
  • Greater cleaning control of the property.
  • Greater control of guests over who may or may not be during their stay on the property.

Message from our team at Casa Iguana del Mar


At Casa Iguana Del Mar we the cleaning and cooking staff enforce the cleaning and disinfection guideline from the CDC (Centers for Desease Control  and Prevention).
