Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

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 Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
