  • Relaxing Vacation in Lo De Marcos

    "Recently stayed 18 days in Villa Lo De marcos. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this lovely casa. The description and pictures accurately describe the property.Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, appliances. The place was very clean when we arrived and the housekeeper, Herminia, did an excellent job keeping it that way on her twice weekly visits. The pool and adjacent open courtyard were definitely a favourite spot where we spent a lot of time. Lo De Marcos is a perfect spot for those wishing to get away from the typical busy tourist areas. The georgeous beach is only one block away and on many days we had it just about to ourselves. Locals in the town were very friendly and tolerant of our limited Spanish. The local restaurants were excellent and the many small stores supplied all our daily grocery needs. Visiting other nearby communities was very easy and cheap using local collectivos and taxis. We considered renting a car for part of tour trip before arrival but after a few days we didn't see the need. Even traveled to PV for a day on the local bus. Would not hesitate to recommend this accomodation and the Lo De Marcos area to anyone looking for a relaxing Mexican vacation."

  • A Wonderful Week

    "Let us start by affirming every positive comment in the previous reviews, please consider them as the first portion of this review. Notice that they are all 5 stars ratings; each star is well deserved. Our group consisted of two sun lovers and two shade lovers. Three great cooks and four great eaters. Casa de Sueños handled this mix with grace. A list of memorable moments may give the best flavor of our stay. Picking plantains from the garden and frying them up for breakfast. Watching the full moon rise over the mountains from the roof. Walking to the beach in the morning and picking up a pastry from the local bakery on the way (available at 11am; always eaten in the next few blocks). The private pool: reducing ones core temperature to something a Seattleite finds comfortable, a daily and most pleasant experience. The rural setting provided: • Dark nights and exceptional star gazing. • Morning sounds of doves cooing, rosters crowing, and cows calling to be milked. • A pleasing “Hola, buenas días}” from most locals you pass. • Birds galore, over 300 species listed, in the back yard we were entertained by: Great-tailed Grackle, Mexican Cacique, and Streak-backed Oriole. We had a car and made six trips to other places: Sayulita, San Pancho, Guayabitos, La Peñita, Chacaia, and Playa el Venado (a wonderful beach south of town). Casa de Sueños is a great base for such day trips. Each of the towns and beaches are uniquely wonderful. Binoculars and bird and star books or apps are helpful."

  • Peaceful retreat

    "I just returned from a solo trip to Mexico and stayed 6nights at Mar al Cielo. There was a topical storm during my stay so it rained a lot, but I would return in a heartbeat. Even with the weather mid-week, I managed to get out kayaking (around to the next deserted, incredibly beautiful beach), went hiking on their trails to enjoy a stunning view of the surrounding area and checked out the friendly town of Lo de Marcos and had a great meal on the beach there. During the storm I watched and listening to the waves pound the beach below and was mesmerized by the power of the surf. The next day I was swimming in the warm waters:) Jodi and Carlos are wonderful and friendly hosts, and were there exactly as much as I needed them with advice about the surrounding area. The groundskeeper Raul come a couple times during the week at a specified time (which is flexible) and rings a bell at the bottom of the path to make sure it's ok to come up. Privacy is assured in your little aerie in the Mexican jungle. I cannot recommend this property highly enough, though like other reviewers, I worry that it means it won't be available next time I want to visit! Thanks again to Jodi and Carlos for a great stay!"

  • Beautiful, a real (re)treat!

    "My husband and I feel incredibly lucky to had had the chance visit Lo De Marcos and stay at Casa Pelicanos! We had heard amazing things about Lo De Marcos and Puerto Vallarta from our friends, and we were planning this visit for a while. Things came together last minute this October, and we took off for a 5 day trip. Luckily, Casa Pelicanos was available, as it really made this trip so special! You want a peaceful vacation, away from the hustle of the city, but yet within a stone's throw distance to a beautiful beach, lagoons and a 15 minute drive to great restaurants and coffee shops? You want to experience life in a small town, where the children are playing on the streets and the town folks gather each evening in the village square to catch up or have community zumba classes? Then Casa Pelicanos is your answer! The home is located in the town of Lo De Marcos, 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta airport, and conveniently close to 3-4 other small towns bustling with beach activities, great food and drinks and very friendly people. Casa Pelicanos is at the end of the town by the beach, hence it has all round views of the blue waters, swaying palm trees in front and its own beach access. One can also just sit outdoors on the verandah or patio and see a lot of wildlife and birds. The home is very tastefully decorated, with beautiful local materials and handicrafts, and with all modern amenities - equipped and spacious kitchen, beautiful rooms and bathrooms, comfortable living room and dining area, 2 car garage, TV, washing machine - everything that one needs for a comfortable stay! Lo De Marcos is an amazing area to visit, and I would highly recommend Casa Pelicanos for someone looking for a place that feels just like home!"
