About Bert

This is a shot of my favorite thing to do ! Surf ! Linda and I love Las Palapas! It is such a gorgeous cove. When not there we live in Northern California between San Francisco and San Jose in a small town called Ladera which is right next to Stanford University. Linda spends a lot of time raising money for the local high school and tutoring English. I spend my time investing and surfing. PS this surf shot is not Mexico, but certainly could be.

Bert purchased this house in 2007

Why Bert chose Chacala

Chacala is a really special spot. The cove of Chacalilla is so beautiful. There is fantastic surfing near by. I kept passing it by boat and thought if I owned a home here I would be home already ! I also really wanted to build a home with lots of palapa roofs. Our brother in law did a fantastic job with the architecture and the home is really livable. We designed it with family reunions in mind.

What makes this house unique

There is so much to do ! From pool volley ball to tennis, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, hiking and tons more. Be sure to check the activities page at

Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Just returned from a 7 night stay at Las Palapas. We had a total of 4 families (20 people - including 12 kids- ages 8-16). Each family had their own living space, bathroom and outdoor area. Perfect accommodations for each family - especially a large group of people. Honestly, hard to chose what my favorite part of the vacation was. Between the AMAZING food Nydia and the others prepared, the delicious cocktails, kids boogie boarding on the waves at the beach, playing in the pool, taking a short walk into the town of Chacala, fishing everyday, it is very hard to chose. Every small detail has been thought of and the staff working at Las Palapas is so friendly and accommodating. This vacation will be impossible to was perfect from start to finish. Thank you to Bert for opening up your beautiful home and letting us create such fun memories with our families!

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were guests of a dear friend who rented this property three years ago to cerebrate her birthday with friends and family in style. We told some friends about the property when we returned, and 14 of us just got back (February 2018) from a special fun and relaxing week. The group ranged in age from 56 to 73, from those who were non-stop active (collectively, we took advantage of just about everything including hiring musicians to serenade us on Valentine's Day, the lap pool, kayaking, sailing, whale watching boat rides, a dozen massages, golf, a "market day" outing, fierce late night board games and lots and lots of chips and guacamole) to those who mostly chilled out on the chaises, from "eat everything in sight" to food "snobs", from (almost) non-drinkers to "what time is happy hour?", from high end globe trotters to those who prefer local encounters, BUT everyone loved the week and wants to go return at some point. You really cannot do better. There is nothing negative to say about the whole experience but the best parts are: the beach/view , the staff (really lovely and, tellingly, mostly the same folks who where there three years ago), and property's highly functional layout, welcoming comfort and unpretentious feel despite the decadence of the experience away from it all.

Fabulous Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, great food and service, super beach, pool, sand volleyball court, and close by tennis courts. Perfect for our 3 children, their spouses, and 6 grandchildren. Paul also helped getting some local musicians for us one night, and 5 folks had massages from a local woman. We would do this again in a heartbeat if we could get all of our families together at the same time.

Stunning location; beautiful, comfortable house; delicious food beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17 (age range from 70 to 3 years old) had an unforgettable, relaxing vacation-of-a-lifetime at Las Palapas. The fine staff, led by Paul and Nydia, were cheerful and accommodating. Meals were delicious and presented beautifully. Owners Bert and Linda have thought through all the details that go into a relaxing, healthy vacation by providing a beautiful comfortable home with activity equipment for snorkeling, tennis, pickle ball, paddle boards, kayaks, board games etc.. Guests have everything needed right on the compound for a comfortable and fun stay. Then there's the bonus of seeing whales and dolphins playing off-shore, watching stunning sunsets and noticing the bounty of stars above at night.
