About Robi Smallwood

After a long winter of construction, Dan and I are ready to start the upcoming vacation season in our new winter home in Mexico. This is an exciting lifestyle change for us and we are offering a choice of 3 vacation rentals.

Robi Smallwood purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Robi Smallwood chose Nayarit

We chose to build her because of the proximity to town and the beautiful beach front location. We also love the small town appeal and all the near by activities. It is truly a very active and vibrant Mexican community. We love the people and we feel extreamly safe her walking the streets

What makes this apartment unique

This vacation rental property is only minutes by foot from town center. You will enjoy short walks to all type of restaurants, shopping, market days, and sight seeing. There is easy public transportation to surronding towns and Puerto Vallarta. Sunset is perfect under the palapa or from your own ocean view balcony. All three apartments are direct ocean and beach view .

Fantastic Proprty and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 1/2 wonderful weeks at Sunset Casa in the Aztec Suite. Dan and Robi were great hosts and we quickly became good friends with them. Their knowledge of the area proved invaluable and the small town of La Penita is charming. There are enough good restaurants and a great selection of fresh produce and fish if you choose to cook in. We did not rent a car and don't see the need for one as local transportation to neighboring villages is very reasonable. We would come back here in a heartbeat! Oh, and Milo, Dan and Robi's Schnauzer is absolutely adorable.

Thanks again Dan and Robi. We hope that our paths will cross in the not too distant future.

Great units at a quiet stretch of beach short walk to town

  • 4 of 5

Sunset Casa in La Penita Jaltemba is located right on the beach which is wonderful if you love to hear the ocean all day and night. It is a short walk to downtown over the foot bridge and even shorter if the tide is out and you walk left down the beach. The surrounding area is not, for the most part, of the same high standard as Sunset Casa. The neighborhood is a bit rundown and not tarted up for tourists. However, we certainly felt safe walking around except for the uneven cobblestone streets which are easier to navigate at night with a flash light.

There are 3 suites and we stayed 3 nights in the Olmec (#2) and 6 in the Toltec (#3). Both are well decorated with fully equipped kitchens, separate bedrooms and balconies which face the estuary. The Olmec offers a bit more view of the oceanfront from the balcony. The Toltec has a bit more privacy on the deck and in the way the unit is laid out. Both balconies provide good views of bird life and sunsets. Occasionally we saw people dumping garbage and fish guts into the estuary which was unpleasant to see.

The garden, pool, bbq and eating area under the palpa are all well cared for and make it very pleasant to sit out. It has a great pool which is about 4.5 feet deep and worked well for my daily aqua jogging. It is a solar pool with an average temperature of 70 degrees which is quite adequate for me.

I’m not a dog lover but one of the delightful things about the Sunset Casa was their dog Milo, who is an absolutely, adorable Schnauzer and thee best behaved dog I have ever seen. I loved playing with ball with Milo and having him curl up on the lounger with me. He was a real hit with everyone we met there.

The Canadian owners Robi and Dan live onsite so are available and responsive if you have questions or concerns. Robi is very particular about things, which is her prerogative though it seems to rub some people the wrong way. The guy who installed some of the locks put them in backwards and it would be helpful to replace these with more user friendly locks and keys.

The Thursday morning open air market is really enjoyable to visit with crafts people coming from many areas. There are not many things to do in the area but we were there to just relax.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunset Casa for 10 days and plan to stay longer on our next visit. The facility, grounds and flowers are beautiful and much more than we expected. We were in the beautiful ocean front apartment which was well stocked and very comfortable. We enjoyed the large deck for reading, bird watching, ocean views and beautiful sunsets. Dan and Robi are wonderful hosts and made us feel very much at home. Dan mixes dynamite margaritas!!

La Penita is a quite little fishing village with friendly people and some very good restaurants. Everything was very inexpensive and reminded me of what Puerto Vallarta was like 30 years ago. I highly recommend Sunset Casa to anyone looking for a quiet restful vacation.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, GREAT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5

A very beautiful and thoughtfully designed property! The grounds are lovely with a gorgeous pool and palapa area for relaxing and enjoying a cool drink and a good book. We stayed 10 nights in the Toltec Suite and enjoyed this unit for it's bright spacious open feeling and great view of the lagoon full of birds, fish and the occasional turtle. It was also fun to watch the fishermen prepare their boats each morning for a day of fishing on the ocean. Town as others have mentioned is just a short beachwalk away or an interesting wander throught the neighborhood and over the bridge. Robi and Dan are wonderful hosts who are truly interested in making sure you are enjoying your vacation. Thank you Robi and Dan (Maggie too)! We loved our time at Sunset Casa and can't wait to get back to this little slice of paradise!

Map

If you love fishing than we can arrange a tour for you. We can also arrange tours to San Blas and for the jungle cruise. If you have the time a couple of nights in Guadalajara can be very enjoyable with the wonderful old world buildings and the many great restaurants not to mention good shopping.

Of course one cant miss market day on Thursday. The Mexican lady sells the best bread in Mexico also all sorts of sinful sweet treats including great pies.

For your special treat we can arrange in house massages, pedicure and manicures at very reasonable prices.
