About this listing
Enjoy the ocean in our 2-bedroom beachfront casita that offers spectacular ocean views and authentic Mexican furnishings and construction. Besides being a private home (not condo), what sets this home apart is a prime location in the middle of Santiago Bay and the rustic charm of palapa living.
In addition to the main casita, a second 20' x 20' open-air palapa located next to the sea wall offers a dining area and simple outdoor kitchen with sink and gas grill.
The simple but clean casita has 2 bedrooms, a dining/kitchenette area, and a small living room area. Authentic “rustico" furniture and Mexican dishes, glassware, and decorations add to your experience. Appliance and cookware are all newly (website hidden), high speed internet connection, and two twin size mattresses are provided as well.
Situated on a gently sloping sandy beach, children and adults will enjoy safe swimming, body boarding, stunning sunsets, and few foreign tourists. The 3-mile long beach is also perfect for walks, playing in the surf, or watching fishermen in pangas lay their nets. At times dolphins and whales are visible. The Mexican community of Santiago is two blocks away. Here you can explore a traditional market with fresh produce and seafood; you can also board inexpensive taxis or buses to various sites including three large nearby “American style" grocery stores including a Walmart.
Purified drinking water, bath towels, and all bed linens are provided. Please bring your own beach towel. The casita is cleaned every week but more frequent cleanings are available for an extra charge. Smoking is not permitted inside the casita and no pets are allowed.

A public bus stop is two blocks away and buses run every 4-5 minutes. Taxi cabs are readily available, reliable, safe, and inexpensive.
