About The Owner

It was our dream to move our family to Chacala for a time. We designed and built Casa Monarca as a labor of love. We lived onsite with our young daughters for 2.5 years and now rent out our beautiful home for others to enjoy as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Nayarit

We were drawn to Chacala because it is an authentic and friendly Mexican village with a strong identity, history and sense of community. The coast of Nayarit is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled in all of Mexico. The climate is also wonderful almost all year round. Chacala's proximity to the Puerto Vallarta airport is ideal, only 60 miles away.

What makes this house unique

We love our place because it is close to everything in Chacala, yet private. There is undeveloped property on either side and behind us, providing the backyard pool and patio with privacy. And, we are in town, not way up on a hill or inside the gated community so we can walk to everything and feel a part of the community. Last but not least, there is a gorgeous view of the ocean from the master bedroom!

Words cannot describe how horrible the experience of this destination was. I was in Chacala last year and had the good fortune to stay in a beautiful place directly in front of this one so I thought it would be great. I was wrong! To begin ...I made my reservation for the Eclipse suite in August of 2014 for our stay in February 2015. After a substantial deposit was sent, I was informed the father had booked the suite with someone else so we would be moved to the lower two the family would not be staying together. The entire place was FILTHY, but the lower two rooms especially so. The first day my daughter put her 16 month old son down for a nap and a spider the size of my fist was IN the bed (husband said it was a tarantula) there were ants all over all counters. We had to mop and dust to try to mitigate the filth. When the people arrived to take the suite we were forced to vacate, they told us that they had actually requested one of the lower rooms but were told they were already rented!!!!! I can't even begin to imagine why these horrible people did this to my family. There are a lot of beautiful places to stay in Chacala ~ THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM

Owner's Response: We at Casa Monarca were very sorry to hear that our guests did not enjoy their stay. We are a small family business and the satisfaction of our guests is extremely important to us. This is the first negative review we have received in many years of business, we take all feedback very seriously. The majority of our guests are returning after previous stays. In order to improve our service, we have formalized our policy that we are unable to hold a room until a deposit has been made. We also encourage our guests to contacts us with any needs or complaints right away during their stay so we can fix any problem right away. Our villa located in a tropical climate, and although we do fumigate twice a year, we do see the occasional tropical insect . We make every effort to keep rooms clean and comfortable. We strive to provide an excellent experience for our guest and we will take this opportunity to continue to better our service.
