Casa Litibu...Luxurious vacation in a small town on a private locals only beach
"We spent 2 weeks over the Christmas Holiday at Casa Litibu. It was the best way to spend Christmas and New Years.
The owner, Bonnie, was very easy to work with. She was so patient with quickly answering every question that I had.
When we finally arrived we were surprised with how stunning the house was. The pictures do not do the house and surrounding area any justice. The quaint town was teaming with friendly residents.
When we arrived the house manager, Ricardo, was there to greet us. I cannot say enough about how helpful and kind he and his wife are. He was so helpful with answering our questions about the surrounding area. He helped us set up horse back riding trips and a boat trip to Marietas Island. During our boat trip with Jose, we had several sightings of whales and dolphins that jumped out of the water so closely to our boat. It was amazing and did not disappoint! It was the closest I had been to either one of those majestic animals.
I had prearranged with Bonnie to have Ricardo's wife make us several dinners while we were there. This is a must! She is an amazing cook. She made us chilli relleno on our 1st night, red mole with chicken on Christmas Eve, and chicken enchiladas on New Years Eve...OMG! I would recommend them all. It was not much more expensive than having a meal out and it was in the comfort of the beautiful house on the deck at sunset with the sound of the waves on beach just steps away. It was magical.
During our stay we also had Graciela and Luis from Nirvana spa in Sayulita come to the home to give massages. This is also another must! We had them set up under the 3rd floor palapa. It was very affordable and completely worth it to make the trip feel that much more luxurious.
There is a fisherman named Raphael who sells fish and seafood right on the beach that he caught that same day. Wow! Talk about fresh and delicious. He sells it just a few steps down the beach from the house. We hardly had to leave the town to go shopping because all of the simple ingredients needed to make meals were right there in Higuera Blanca. It's easy to make things taste great when they are that fresh.
I would suggest renting a vehicle while there. The surrounding towns are worth the visit. Our favourite was San Pancho. A vehicle is also needed to run into the town of Higuera Blanca. You can walk but it will take you at least 30 minutes to get to there.
The town of Higuera Blanca and area of Playa Llitibu are very small. If you are looking for"

"This was our first visit to Punta Mita which we had wanted to check out for a while. We rented This Villa in Las Palmas and from the moment we contacted the agent we had an immediate response, he worked with us throughout the whole booking process and when we arrived to Punta Mita, everything was ready for us.
The service was beyond what was expected: they actually care about their guests. Sol (concierge) came everyday and she acted more like the House Manager.
We were sad to say goodbye to our new friends in Punta Mita and promised to come back soon."

"This place was as advertised. Super friendly, great accommodations, safe and clean. We enjoyed the location as well for its close proximity to surf, groceries, restaurants, and medical care. David and Lisa made us feel at home. Each day we were greeted with a fresh pot of coffee and an invitation to go surfing! What more do you need? Lisa is an excellent cook and happy to prepare a meal for you at a very reasonable price. She cooked up a fantastic mahi and ahi dinner and even made us an awesome waffle breakfast when we returned from surfing one day! And don't forget to ask about Rib Night! We can't wait to return to Las Olas for another epic Mexican vacation."

"I can only use superlatives when I reference my recent holiday to Punta De Mita. The residence, the location, the amenities,the access to fine dining, the beach, available activities within walking distance capped off by the hosts attentive behavior to a world traveller with no previous VRBO experience. Their attention to detail before during and after my trip was nothing less than superb and created a stress free environment which ultimately I expect is what most people hope for during their holiday/vacation time. Highly recommended"
