About the Property

Top floor, 1bath, 1bedroom, living room, kitchen: downstairs room only for guest

Our gorgeous home on the Mexican Riviera is just two blocks from one of Mexico's most gorgeous private beaches. Upstairs is the heart of the house. The spacious kitchen has cabinets fully equipped with whatever dishes or implements that you might need. Every appliance is working well.It is quite large as are all the rooms on the upper floor.
The living room with a custom built sofa is the perfect place to watch a movie, read a book or entertain guests. The dining, with a beautifully carved dining set is an elegant setting for intimate dinners.

The master bedroom is large and luxuriously furnished in traditional Mexican style. It has a most comfortable King sized bed and the large window overlooks the nearby mountains. A very ample closet and two dressers will accommodate all of your apparel. It is the perfect setting for a full night's sleep or siesta with the lulling sounds of the ocean close by.

The master bathroom has deep, twin artisan Talavera sinks and an enormous tub surrounded by coordinating tiles. A glass tile inset adds dreamy lighting to the calming atmosphere.

Across the hallway is our favorite place, a covered patio for eating outdoors or just relaxing. The mountain views and tropical birds are a feast for the eyes and a perfect backdrop for entertaining.
There is a large table and chairs and two lounge chairs for relaxing and dreaming. It is quite private.

Throughout the house are ceiling fans and exhaust fans that circulate the air to provide a comfortable environment.

Stroll down to the magnificent beach to swim, watch the fishermen bring in a catch or have a drink or snack at one of the local restaurants. Sea life abounds and Pelicans spend hours feeding on the rich bounty just off the beach. There an estuary at one end of the beach and tide pools at the other end. This is a truly relaxing vacation spot. If you can, walk the length of the beach. Every day it changes and is always magnificent
The downstairs is intended for guests. Please note that the upstairs and downstairs have two different fees.
Our house is a romantic adult only retreat for people who want a restful, beautiful location in which to spend time alone in Mexico.
Lo de Marcos is a small town with an interesting combination of local people and expats who choose to flee the frigid northern climates. There is a varied assortment of local restaurants that serve fresh dishes from local products derived from the soil and sea.
Lo de Marcos has attracted, in addition, many gifted musicians and artists who add to the already rich environment of the Mexican culture.
Next door to our home lives one of the several expert massage therapists who are trained to relieve the stress of daily living.
The best stress reliever is the beach just 10 minutes away by foot. Equally close is the central plaza where frequent events such as dances, fund raisers, and artisan creations can be found several times a month.

Lo de Marcos is a traditional Mexican town with friendly people and a most gorgeous beach. There are restaurants on the beach as well as in town. There are more touristy towns nearby,but this is authentic Mexico. You can eat on the beach at sunset hour...fabulous. You can hop a bus to other towns. It is relaxing and the house is ultra comfortable.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: My wife and I are retired California teachers. We moved to Texas to be near our son and his family. On our first trip to the Mexican Riviera we were awe stricken by the natural beauty of the beaches and the surrounding landscape.We knew immediately that we wanted a vacation home there and couldn't be happier with it.

Why Lo De Marcos, Nay., Mexico:
We live inland in Texas and have missed the sounds, aroma and playful fun of the ocean. Being located a short walk from the beach provides us with many opportunities to boogie board, ride the waves or just enjoy a margarita as the sun sets in Lo de Marcos.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having now spent several winters in Mexico, we have found compatible friends not only among the Canadians or Americans that travel every year to escape the harsh winters, but also with the local people who live year-round in Lo de Marcos. As a musician I was surprised to find venues in Lo de Marcos and in the adjacent towns where I could hear local talent performing and even participate in the festivals. My wife never runs short of exceptional subjects for her photography.
