About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Pelicanos is your dream beach vacation home, just steps from one of the great hidden beaches of the Mexican Riviera, Playa Venados. Our lovely home is just 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport and minutes from the town of Lo de Marcos. Step out onto the veranda and see the breathtaking panorama of ocean in front of you and the lush semi-tropical forest to the side. The air is soft, the scenery breathtaking and the ever-present sound of the ocean is ultimately relaxing.

You can whale watch from the veranda, relax while you see the pelicans soar over the house or take a dip in the pristine warm water. At night, take in the stars and the fireflies while you stroll on the beautiful beach. Casa Pelicanos is a refuge from our all too busy lives and your stay here will be truly relaxing and refreshing.

Accommodations are aesthetically beautiful and comfortable with authentic art and furnishings. There are two levels to the Villa, each of which is self-contained with full kitchens and separate entrances. Casa Pelicanos, consists of three bedrooms (2 queens/1 king) and three bathrooms while Casa Venados (listing #1245147) has two bedrooms (2 queens) and two bathrooms. Rent them separately or together. For rates on renting the entire Villa (sleeps up to 10!) or Casa Venados separately, please go to Rates and click on Notes....which will give the entire rate schedule.

Lo de Marcos is a small charming town, which is not yet a tourist destination. There are a couple of good restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy and of course a fabulous beach with an adjoining estuary with great bird watching. Check out the town square which is the social hub: there are often fun local events.

For fine dining and shopping you can go down to San Francisco, which is 20 minutes south of Lo de Marcos or drive another 5 minutes further to Sayulita. 15 minutes to the north is La Penita, with banks, ATM’s and a fun Thursday market selling arts & crafts along with deliciously fresh fruits and vegetables.

There are taxis available to and from the airport and also in Lo de Marcos and upon request. If you really want to explore we recommend a rental car which is available at the airport or in Sayulita.

Why Paul Jaffe and Janet Kaplan chose Lo De Marcos

We chose this location for the extraordinary coastal view, proximity to the clean beach as well as the quiet location. You can always drive down to Sayulita for some shopping and nightlife but I don't care to deal with loud music or partying when I want to sleep and only hear the sound of the surf.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Pelicanos is such a beautiful home and much care has been taken with the art and furnishings to make it feel like you are walking into a place of comfort and serenity. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is plenty of space in the living room or the veranda to read or just hang out. Just walk down our driveway and the pristine beach is only steps away. Whenever I stay at Casa Pelicanos time slows down and my vacation provides the sense of relaxation and renewal I was hoping for.

Clean, spacious, stunning views of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation ever! The house was lovely and the locals were kind and helpful. The property managers (Trini and Joelle) were amazing. I need to say that again - amazing!!! I went to sleep every night feeling like I was lying on the beach (because the property is a 2 minute walk from the beach so it's almost as if we were!). I can't wait to get back there!

What a beautiful place, this playa los

Venados... Casa pelicanos sits right over the beautiful private beach. Swim at the beach or venture into town to lo de Marcos or a nearby beach town. We brought our own food from the mega commercial store on the way from Puerto Vallarta airport. Then we cooked most night in the house. Rent a car as you'll be happy to be mobile as this place is super remote. Check out their welcome binder for fun day trips in the area! Great place for sure...

Fantastic getaway/vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2 week stay in Casa Pelicanos in Lo de was heavenly! The house was beautiful and the almost private beach was awesome! The caretakers, Trini And Joel were charming and even prepared us a lovely meal at the house where their adorable 12 year old daughter, Odet served as our waitress. We couldn't have had a nicer vacation...can't wait to book again for next time! Gracias!

Beautiful part of Nayarit

We were looking for a non-Cabo non-Las Vegasy vacation and Casa Pelicanos in Lo De Marcos was just what we needed. Joel and Trini treated us like family

This house is so amazing! We loved everything about it! The views were breath taking, the kitchen was beautiful and well equipped, the decor and all the finishing touches felt like true luxury. We loved hearing the sound of the waves every night while we slept and we spent most of our days right down at the beach. It was so private. I would recommend this house who wants a true get away with all the amenities minus the crowds. We will hopefully be back soon!
