About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

casa quetzal is a Mediterranean, a somewhat nostalgic, romantic and charming house with three arches on three levels.

The roof one big terraza, with hammocks, chaise, big table & chairs and a BBQ.

Makes for wonderful star watching and great whale watching in January! The views are truly amazing.

Ideal for early morning Yoga.

On the next level down is the main floor, kitchen, dining room and living room, all in one generous open space, with doors that open up all the way on three sides. Views of the pueblo, the wilderness with it's amazing display of birds, San Pancho, (even the three 'Islas Marias' on a clear day) and 180* view of the ocean of course. The kitchen is simple, granite counter-tops, breakfast bar, fridge and stove, fully equipped. There is also a small bath room, (a toilet and a sink) on this floor.

Three bed-rooms are downstairs each with breath-taking views of the ocean from bed, and the sound of the waves. in addition of the ocean view the master bed room (with a king-sized bed) has a view of the hill and it's wild jungle, it's own bath and private terrace.

The two other bed-rooms (one with king-sized bed, the other two twin beds) share a shower and a toilet, but each have their own sink and closet area.

For an additional fee we sometimes also rent the fourth bedroom is a small one with a twin sized bed, is on the first floor, with it's own bathroom. It faces a patio and although on the lowest level still offers equally stunning views. It is surrounded by the gardens, flowers and fruit trees bearing papayas, bananas, grapefruit, limes, oranges and grenade apples, and several small patios sprinkled about for extra private corners.

The salt water pool, no chemicals! is 4x7 meters - with it's patio and pool shower.

A maid comes 3 days a week and a caretaker is in charge of the pool and garden.

There is no telephone line yet and there probably wont be for another year, but we left a cell phone there for your local calls. You can buy minutes at several stores for as little as 50.00 pesos. There Internet Access comes from a telcel 'stick' that you plug into your lap top (USB). Best reception is sitting on the dining room table.

There are also many internet places in town.

There is a large BB Que available to you in the garden and a smaller version of a BB Que for a quick fish upstairs on the kitchen terraza.

About The Owner

My family and I enjoy this serene space. One really feels totally away from everything and yet our sons are just minutes away from surfing, discos and parties, the while we, the parents enjoy seeing the lights of the pueblo, the fireworks and hear the faint rhythm of the music, but are glad to be in our hamacs gazing up at the stars.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

We come to our casa quetzal to truly relax. We love to wake up to the bird songs and sleep to the sound of waves and the crickets. We also love the hot rainy season here, listening to the tropical rains and enjoying the comfort of our house.

My personal pride is the garden and the fruit it produces, especially I love our sweet papayas and the passion fruit! But the limes are delicious, so are the bananas and the other citrus fruit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was great. Amanecer, the taxi Service to and from the airport deserves extra kudos since the driver waited 5 hours for us because our plane was delayed. Everyone told us there is no way our driver would still be there, but he was. Then he offered to take us to town and wait for us while we got something to eat since he knew we had nothing yet to cook. We took him up on the ride but insisted he not wait for us.

Frederico and Chole were amazing. We all speak Spanish so there was no communication barrier and they were fun in teaching us new words and expressions in Mexican Spanish. Frederico was right on top of things when we had an issue with one of the locks. Any communication was answered right away (even on a Sunday). Chole and her mom were a delight. I actually hadn't expected a cleaner so that was a nice surprise. We also booked them a couple of time for meals. The second one we said they could just drop it off, but they insisted upon "full service" and that they stay to serve us and wash up. It seems like you have developed a great relationship with your staff and treat them well, you can tell by the positive attitude they bring to working in your house.

Only positive feedback Patrice Good job and hope to stay there again some day.
