"We visited Chacala in order to travel locally and find property to build a winter home. From the first contact, the owner of the Villa Cascada de Flores was warm, welcoming, helpful and a terrific source of information about the area surrounding Chacala. Jill gave us important information that helped us to 1.) enjoy our stay in Chacala and 2.) meet some delightful folks who live in Chacala and form a lively and mutually supportive ex-pat community there. She built her lovely Mexican home in a fitting style for the location, but with attention to the details which support the standard of comfort for the American visitor.
Our stay took place over 4 days in September, 2014 (a time notable for it's heat & humidity) and we were very comfortable in our second floor bedroom. The bedroom had a comfortable bed & sofa. It included a kitchenette (refrigerator, gas burners, sink,) a private bathroom and a long, shaded balcony with gorgeous views of the ocean. The air conditioner was a blessing during this period, but I can imagine that in other seasons the tropical breezes would flow through the room.
There are other, similarly organized suites in the house, so it would be comfortable for a large family or a set of two or three couples. We shared the large downstairs living room & fully-outfitted kitchen and outdoor patio with her friend who was there watching over the property for the summer. The house sitter was, like Jill, very kind and helpful.
There is great internet, phone and TV reception throughout the house. The property manager, Javier, was attentive and the cleaning lady left the place spotless. There is a rooftop patio for all to enjoy, but in the extreme heat of early September, it was not an option for me. The garden is beautifully landscaped, adding to the restful and attractive environment. A washer & dryer on the ground floor was available to us or we were given the option of having the cleaning lady do the laundry. Very convenient.
As to Chacala the town, it is the perfect getaway place for families, adventure seekers, seniors - anyone looking to enjoy beautiful scenery, great food and a relaxing beach-side vacation. I hope you will give Chacala a visit and choose Jill's lovely house in which to enjoy it! You won't be disappointed."
