About Linda Scharff/Lori LaVelle

Linda Scharff divides her time between Mexico and Texas. She has a passion for life, love of nature, art and travel....

Daughter, Lori LaVelle, lives year round in Bucerias and oversees Casa Linda with mom, Linda. "We could not do it without our wonderful staff, Cristina, Jacinto, otra Cristina and our property manager Bev."

We love to fill the gardens with unusual tropical plants with plenty of orchids, hibiscus, Bugambilia and some out of the ordinary finds. We have 25 palm trees on our property and most are 30 years old or older.

We enjoy meeting all the people that pass through Casa Linda and hearing about their adventures of their adventure.

We love this little village. Mom could really give a good history as she was one of the pioneers of the community. Back then, mom couldn't get a phone line so you would have important messages sent to the tortilla factory and they would deliver it to us by bicycle . Oh how the town has changed

Linda Scharff/Lori LaVelle purchased this house in 1979

What makes this house unique

I love the tropical gardens, the rare flowers and the birds that always stop by to say hello. It is wonderful to see my guests relaxing and taking a break from busy lives. Casa Linda is like a home away from home without the stress. I also enjoy seeing people getting married at my place-beach weddings are amazing!

My favorite time of year is when all my best friends from Texas come for their annual visit!

Charming, great beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our accommodations at Casa Linda. The Casa was furnished just the way one would expect in Mexico. Had all the comforts of home and the kitchen was very well equipped. Great pool with beautiful surrounding landscaping. Beach was great and it was so nice to be able to walk into town and restaurants so conveniently close. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I wound't have to think twice about returning.
