About elaine newkirk

We traveled for many years throughout Mexico and Latin America looking for the perfect beach. We knew our search was over when we arrived in Chacala for the first time in Oct. 2001. It was love at first sight. In addition to surfing, swimming, hiking, fishing, whale watching, we have loved being involved with the community via the schools and hosting an annual Christmas (Posada) event, in which all children are fed, given a toy and an afternoon of song and fun. NGO's from the US have used the property to host retreats and conduct community programs.

As you can see from Chacala Beach House web page, our vacation home has been a joy to share with many.

elaine newkirk purchased this house in 2003

Great beach house with local Mexican vibe

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday at the Chacala Beach house. As two families we wanted the convenience of an all inclusive on the beach but with flexibility for food and excursions. We found it ALL for kids 3-13 years old with interests ranging form boogie boarding, sand castle building, swimming, fishing, hiking, volley ball, and just hanging out.

Location - right on a beautiful beach (nicer than Sayulita's) with amazing sunsets and unlike most other houses in Chalcala, just outside the compound gates are groceries, tortilla-ria, juice bar, surfer pizza (they deliver!) - everything you need. All of the locals are really friendly without being pushy and accommodate those without Spanish with friendly smiles. We ran a tab with the restaurant next door to have nachos and beverages delivered in the afternoon, breakfast buffet and great dinners at affordable prices and they take credit cards, otherwise bring pesos. Or choose to eat in and the owners insist you let Claudia, the daily housekeeper, do ALL of the dishes.

House - right on the beach with great sunset view and we felt very safe and comfortable with the indoor and outdoor layout. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and each have an en-suite . Sleeping arrangements are flexible, but each bedroom opens and locks to the outdoor compound area. So, with young children who need night access to their parents the casita is perfect with 1 bedroom, plenty of sleeping space for 3 children and a kitchen. Main Kitchen is small but comfortable, outdoor dinning space is great, good lounge chairs, but no couch or lounge zone inside. We loved that the house came with beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys and private palapas on the beach.

Activities - we did excursions every other day including hiking the local volcano, fishing with Roberto (caught 3 yellow fin tuna in 2 hours!), hike to petroglyphs, local market day at la Penita and a great trip to San Blas to take a river tour to see crocodiles, birds, turtles followed by a swim - all were fun for all ages and very chill.

Transportation - as a group of 9 we highly recommend contacting Trini's Shuttle Service. Juan met us at the airport, took us on all the excursions on our time and had lots of local knowledge and advice including great inexpensive restaurants and all without the "tour" feel. The convenience was amazing and the cost was less than renting cars / van.

Fun village, great beach and plenty to do - without the hassles of crowded all-inclusives.

Great family beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

This review is primarily for the La Casita apartment rental.

We spent one week at the beach house and loved every minute! Las Casita is well-appointed, comfortable and the location is utterly unbeatable. The apartment was perfect for our little family. Claudia and Roberto, the caretakers, are onsite and extremely approachable and helpful. Chacala beach is great for young kids, and while Chacala is small, it has enough tiendas and restaurants for most needs.

We also had the good fortune to meet the owners, who are extremely kind and genuine people. I would highly recommend this property for people who are looking to spend their time on a lovely beach without a whole lot of distractions. There are lots of options for things in the area which are best reached by a rental car.

Owner's Response: Family life and the Mexican charm of Chacala was a perfect match for you.. We were thrilled to see you enjoying life under the palapa, bobbing in the bay and exploring the village of Chacala. You added to the joy of the casita. We hope future vacations will find you and your family at Chacala Beach House and Casita. Hasta luego and keep in touch.

As advertised!!!

What a great location! Relaxing, friendly staff, clean sandy beach. If you want to get off the beaten path, this is it. The hiking was beautiful, snorkeling was nice, swimming in the ocean was OUTSTANDING! The beach is definitely swimmable and very child friendly as it is pure sand with virtually no rocks, shells, or seaweed! The house is centrally located, clean and well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed Claudia's daily cleaning of the place and her friendly, helpful attitude. We loved Chacala and the people we met. Xplore Chacala taught our son how to surf and guided us on a hike through nearby petroglyphs. Great get away and beautiful home and town!

My family just got back from Chacala. Right on the beach, best location in all of Chacala. If you like beautiful beaches and to be steps from the Ocean, this spot is amazing! Our family had an outstanding time. Trust me, book this spot....In real estate the only thing that matters is location, location, location...I am repeating myself, but awesome location. Mom and dad had privacy down stairs and our two small children had their own room upstairs. We are coming back, best family trip we have taken ever. Thank you Elaine! J, S, K and J~

One week wasn't enough...

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home to snowy Canada after spending a week at this beautiful beach house. We had been to Chacala on day trips via boat before, but decided to spend a week here this time around and I'm really glad that we did. We spent most of our time enjoying the private beach area and the huge patio. We found there was no need to cook as it was just the two of us and the restaurants that surround the property were really good and would deliver directly to us if we felt like staying in. Claudia and Roberto were really great to have on site. We also toured the new one bedroom apartment and were impressed by its size and modern appliances. We will definitely be returning.

Impossible Not To Relax Here!

  • 5 of 5

Exquisite home with every amenity needed for a serene vacation. We are here now & could stay for months reading and walking the beach. The entire property is impeccable and caretakers Claudia & Roberto have gone out of their way on a daily basis to make sure all is well. Soooo wonderful being RIGHT On the beach and yet we feel secure and have lots of privacy under the HUGE palapa! Upstairs bedrooms are private and very lovely. This is our 3rd year at the Beach House and WILL return as the people of Chacala are warm, welcoming and appreciate tourists immensely! While here, visit any of the schools & slip as many school supplies into your suitcase as possible.....they NEED it all!
