If you are planning a family reunion with up to 18 people, Las Palapas is a dream come true! Just completed in 2007, this home is located on a one acre parcel with 200 feet of spectacular ocean frontage in one of the most beautiful coves in Mexico. All 7 bedrooms have baths and tremendous ocean and beach views. Impeccably decorated and comfortably furnished in an absolutely gorgeous setting.

There are tons of activities and our staff of four will make sure you have an incredible and memorable time. They will cook 3 meals a day and provide tasty appetizers and drinks. Labor included. Budget $25 per person per day extra for food, beverages, and alcohol. You wont have to lift a finger! The owners rent this home only 10 weeks per year.

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

Take me back!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. From the actual property to the fantastic staff, everything was fantastic. What elevated this holiday, though, was the wonderful staff. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and special. Surprising my twins with an AMAZING birthday cake was incredibly special. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Beautiful large ocean front estate

  • 5 of 5

We came to Las Palapas with 12 girlfriends for a 60th birthday celebration. We loved the setting at this Chacalla beach property. The two hour drive from the Puerto Vallarta airport is so worth the drive. The home is beautiful with 7 lovely rooms. The staff is very sweet and cooked three meals a day for us. All the activities available at the house fit our group perfectly. We had pool volleyball games, kayak races , paddle board fun, corn hulling games, bonfires on the beach. The bay that the home is situated in is calm and great from swimming and kids. We will be back!

Best vacation of our lives for this group of world travelers

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 adults and 3 small children. All of us have traveled extensively and love adventure. At Las Palapas, we couldn't stand to leave! Tennis, paddle boarding, volleyball - there's plenty to do around the property but the best is simply to rotate from the ocean, hot tub, pool and hammocks and break it up a bit with Nydia's amazing cooking and cocktails. This experience is pure luxury. The photos do not do it justice! If I had to make a small complaint it would be that in the humid climate, at least our room had a faint mildewy smell at times. But everything was clean and beautiful and the staff is friendly, unobtrusive and work very hard to care for you. We've already booked to return!
