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 foam 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 two large nearby “American style” grocery stores.
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 on request. Smoking is not permitted inside the casita and no pets are allowed.
Our friendly English-speaking caretakers, Armando and Lupita, will greet you upon your arrival at our Casita de la Playa or at the airport. Armando is then available to provide a 3-4hr. city tour and Lupita (or a friend) is available to prepare a traditional Mexican breakfast and lunch if you wish. All services beyond greeting at the Casita are available for a minimal charge.
On The Beach or Location, location, location! This is your spot!
The casita and outdoor kitchen and bath are well supplied, clean, and a wonderful experience . I actually enjoyed washing the dishes to the crash of the waves and looking over my shoulder at same was marvelous. For relief from the humidity the casita has a/c. Wi Fi worked. Armando the casita manager speaks English and is knowledgable, attentive, very welcoming. Also all our pre rental communication with the owner was spot on. What you see on the Internet site is true to what one actually gets. There is a marvelous guide in the casita complete with maps to nearby towns and I recommend you visit them. We did and it made for a great time. For people with children this close to the beach location is ideal and the casita easily can accommodate a family of four. Also for down time the yard is quite lovely, peaceful, and again the view, and what sunsets!
