La Saladita house description
CASA DEL SURFISTA is a unique and elegant home designed and built by local artist and architect Gustavo Jasso. Gustavo's use of organic materials and tropical style has turned our property into a relaxing, comfortable getaway. The house, completed in the fall of 2009, is sited on 1.5 acres with 330 feet of oceanfront. The walled property affords incredible privacy.
The main palapa is open air and includes two living rooms, two baths and a dining room and kitchen. The pool wraps around the lower living area. There is a huge bedroom loft above with its own bath. The loft has 3 kings. We have a bedroom nook off of the living room with it's own bath. We have a separate one room cabana that sleeps six and has air conditioning. Our home has one and a half acres of land and has 330 feet of beachfront in La Saladitas. It is extremely quiet and private with a wall around the entire property. Most days you will be the only one on the beach. We have created a private beach around the pool area as well.
SURFING at La Saladitas is a great place. We are one mile to the well known break La Saladitas (aka the wave machine) claiming the longest lefts in Mexico. La Saladitas is a great longboarder wave and great for kids. We also have a beach break right in front of the house if you are a shortboarder. Twenty minutes away is The Ranch. We have onsite caretaker named Paty that lives on property, and can be hired to prepare meals. Leonel her son lives on site as well and is a local surf instructor and can give lessons and take advanced groups to nearby breaks. He can also arrange for board rentals, and repairs.We suggest renting boards at Lourdes for convenience.
YOGA RETREATS can be arranged for an additional fee. We have an instructor from the US who will come down and personalize your yoga vacation. She is available at anytime with advanced notice. We have our own private beachfront platform overlooking the ocean. She also specializes in Thai massage.
All inclusive rates available. This would include all your meals, food preparation and clean up by Paty. Call or email to get rates.

CASA DEL SURFISTA is a truly unique experience and possibly the most amazing house I’ve stayed in on this planet. We visited on my friend’s bachelor surf/adventure trip and stayed in awe our entire visit of the magnificent architecture, canvas of beautiful nightly stars (since no street lights obscure the view), rejuvenating ocean sounds, and blissful ocean wind. This place truly takes your breath away as you relax and marvel at it. A few reviews have complained about things that didn’t bother us. I chose to focus on the amazing ambiance. Our trip was planned around proximity to the famous surf break called LAS SALADITAS (aka “the machine”) and Casa Del Surfista is about a 5 minute drive to Lourdes Bar and Grill which is the best access point for this famous surf break. Each day we really enjoyed surfing at Lourdes and then escaping back to our inspiring haven at Casa Del Surfista. There was a surf break in front of Casa Del Surfista but we spent a majority of our time surfing at Lourdes. Our SUV rental fell through but we were still able to navigate to and from Casa Del Surfista in our mini-van (ha-ha-ha, we found it funny to be in one). If you go during the rainy season I would strongly recommend a SUV; we were there just after the rainy season ended. The beach at Casa Del Surfista is very private, the entire week we stayed I think we only saw 4 other people on the beach (2 boys fishing a mile down the beach and father/son swimming briefly in the distance). It was a pleasant change from the East Coast US where you can rarely be on the beach without seeing dozens of people at any given time. The caretaker and her family were very helpful and pleasant and keep the place beautiful and clean. We opted to have Patty cook a meal a day (either lunch or dinner) and every meal was delicious! I arrived stressed out from my IT job but after a week of daily surfing, daily yoga, and recharging at Casa Del Surfista I came home an absolutely relaxed man! One day I hope to return and with my family, they would also love the adventure!

Some things were grate . . . others were not
Some things were grate . . . others were not
Some things about Casa Del Surfista were definitely 5-star . . . other things were 2-Star. All-in-all, I'll give it 3 stars. The palapa and its setting are beautiful, relaxing, private and scenic. Also the caretaker and her family were very nice and helpful, and we enjoyed the meals that they prepared. That being said, the description of the property is very misleading. The online description states that the property has a two-bedroom sleeping loft, an additional bedrooms downstairs in the Palapa, and a bedroom in the enclosed casita. . . this is simply not accurate. There is one bedroom in the casita, and one giant sleeping loft in the palapa. That's all. This property does not work for two families where both sets of parents want privacy. Also, please appreciate that this is true out-door-living. There are all sorts of criters living in the thatch ceiling. So, you need to be OK with bat and lizard poo being all over the place. And by "all over the place", I mean just that; bedding, pillows, couches, etc. are all in the target zone. This includes the master bed in the enclosed casita. You should also know that the beach in front of the palapa does not have any sand. The closest sand beach is in Saladitas. And, while Saladitas is only about 1.5 miles away, it's about a 15 minute drive on the dirt road.

Owner response: We are very sorry you feel this way. However, we have 16 Photos and a Video of our house on our listing and we feel like we have done everything we can to show exactly how the sleeping arrangements are set up. If you were looking for a more traditional styled American home there are plenty of other options. We designed and built a house to take in nature and it's surroundings. As for the beach in front of the house the sand comes and goes with storms and you came 1 week after the largest hurricane our area has ever seen. Hence, the beach might have looked a bit different. This is no different than how beaches change with tides and storms in the USA. The amount of sand fluctuates but always comes back as the stormy summer season ends. I run on the beach everyday and I can run more than 10 miles on sand and I think even further. If you run north you can even find secret stashes of sand dollars. I have never seen anything like this anywhere in the USA. We have a staff that lives on the property and cleans everyday at no additional charge. Our caretakers clean and sweep the entire property everyday. We cannot control critters but we can control keeping our house neat and tidy. My husband and I have both worked at 5 star hotels (Ritz-Carlton & The Carlyle (nyc)) and we hold our house to those standards. If you are looking for a truly unique and beautiful setting and home we believe our house is perfect. We have 100 meters of beachfront and no visible neighbors at all. We have complete privacy while being right on the ocean. Not to mention a secluded beach where you might not see anyone and empty waves in front of our house. We don't think you can beat that!
I had the pleasure of staying at Casa la Surfista this past February and have also stayed there numerous times in the past. This property is superb in every way. The food, the views, the privacy and the relaxing atmosphere all lend themselves to the perfect surf vacation. Because the main house is open air you feel like you are living outside the entire time and are able to enjoy the warm ocean breeze and the large adjacent casita with 5 beds and a bath allows you to be inside if you desire. The style and design of the house are as good as any high end resort but better because you have them all to yourself. Relax by the pool, nap in the shade under the pallapa, take a long run up the empty beach or hit the ocean for the best wave you’ve ever surfed. You can surf at the main break which is about 5 minutes away or surf right in front of the house. The beach is also great for kids. My kids spent hours this spring break playing and boogy boarding in the waves. After a long day of playing in the ocean there’s nothing better than getting back to the house to a delicious and healthy meal cooked by Patty the friendly caretaker who lives there. She cooks healthy fresh authentic Mexican meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you choose. It was truly a great vacation to have someone grocery shop, cook and take care of the dishes. I would recommend this beautiful Mexican oasis to anyone looking for a great surf spot and place to relax at the end of a great day!

Casa Surfista is amazing!! It is so comfortable, beautiful, clean and its right on the beach which is also incredibly beautiful. The open air feel with the palapa is like paradise and I loved being able to hear and see the ocean at all times. There is great surfing right out front or you can walk down the beach to the point. The caretaker makes delicious healthy food and the privacy is great. The house is perfect for families but also feels very romantic, I love the decor and the feel. I hope to go back every year!!

I am the owner of sol sessions, surf and yoga retreats for women. Our newest destination is Casa del Surfista. There are so many reasons to return to this organic getaway- the view, the indoor/outdoor living space, the attention to detail, the food, the caretakers, the location, the pool, the comfortable beds, the endless coconuts, the cool bathrooms, the salsa verde, the beach out front, the soft towels, the beautiful plates, the fresh juices, the papaya’s, the huge palapa BUT most of all the good times that were had in this amazing natural environment. We maxed out the house with 14 people and we all had some place to call our own. The caretaker’s Patty and Beto will take good care of you and by the time you leave you will feel like part of the family. Patty’s food is an incredible combination of healthy authentic Mexican cuisine. Her variety of fresh food and incredible salsa’s make every meal a culinary masterpiece. Beto, is our hero. He speaks beautiful English and is a kind, genuine person who will do anything he can to help you. He is a surf guide and will set you up with what you need from boards, to boats, to lessons and have you standing up and going down the line in no time. The location of the house is also a huge perk. It is private enough that you can surf out front by yourself all day, catch a boat to local breaks or take a 2 minute ride down the beach for the main peak. It is also a short distance to Trancones which is a fun beach town with great restaurants and shopping. This house and the caretakers are the reason Sol Sessions is in Mexico and we look forward to many great sessions to come.

This place was a great vacation. Really away from it all. I went with my extended family. We all thought there was the perfect combination of "stuff to do" (swimming, surfing, walks on the beach) and hang time. The food was wondeful and the property managers are delightful. We had the opportunity to try out surf lessons with the entire family. You can boogie board and surf directly from the house; the break point a mile away is also amazing. Sign up for the cooking and meals... it's totally worth it. We can't wait to go back.

We just returned from a fabulous Thanksgiving vacation at Casa del Surfista. We loved it and slept wonderfully; the beds and pillows are just right! Temp: 90º day, 75º night, water 82º. Main house has a very nice sleeping loft with separate bathroom. The main level includes the kitchen and living areas which are spacious and comfortable with beautiful views of the ocean. A cozy nook with curtains is just off the living room for either siestas or sleeping at night with a full bath steps away. Cell phones work in some areas of the house. We were happy to see that there were no TVs! The pool was a nice place to retreat in the afternoon. The cabina has equally nice views. The beach directly in front of the house is a little rocky (just round stones), but if you walk a few hundred feet you can walk as long as you like (miles) on beautiful, deserted, soft, flat sand beach where we found lots of sand dollars! We surfed with the kids just a few feet away from the house where there is a nice sand bar for learning to surf or to swim. Saladitas is a mile walk to the south. The surfers of the group would drive down for the morning session at Saladitas and some of us would walk down to meet them. Beto and Patty, the caretakers, were very attentive and cannot recommend more that you use them for shopping as well as cooking. Patty selects the most wonderful ingredients. As a foreigner I wouldn't have known where to get the best food – why grocery shop when she can do it better than you anyway? Her cooking is amazing! We had hot cakes and eggs mexicana, toast, fresh fruit and smoothies every morning! We made our own lunches - the panini maker was a treat with the delicious mexican manchego cheese and ham! Yum! The dinners: wonderful! She has many menus and loved every meal. She also made delicious juices, depending on what's in season. We had guava juice, cucumber/lime juice and flor de jamaica juice as well. She also makes fab red and green salsas as well as yummy guacamole. They also do the dishes, make the beds and clean everyday: a true vacation. One more thing, Patty thoroughly washes all the fruits and vegetables so you will not have any digestive problems; and her salads are great! If you want a relaxing, private vacation, this is the place for you. I recommend converting your money in Ixtapa before you come to the house, because you just don't want to leave the beauty and tranquility of Casa de

About the owner: WE JUST RECENTLY FINISHED OUR HOUSE IN LA SALADITAS. WE PICKED THIS AREA BECAUSE THE WAVES, THE PEOPLE AND THE BEAUTY OF THE LANDSCAPE ARE ALL WONDERFUL.
