About the property

Private Home, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Roja is located only two short blocks from the beach on a quiet residential street in the traditional Mexican village of Bucerias.

Casa Roja has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths ensuite and offers an open floor plan that flows out to a sun dappled veranda covered by a 40 foot long, traditional Mexican portico which covers a broad terrace and outdoor dining area overlooking the pool. Marble, stone and granite, along with all the modern kitchen appliances one would expect in a new home of this quality, can be found in this house.

Soft breezes off the mountains and from the Bay of Banderas make this an appealing point of destination and respite for any traveler.There are two homes that comprise the private compound of Las Casas de Los Colores. The second house is Casa Casa Azul, which has 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. These homes are just steps from the spectacular Bay of Banderas with its 7-mile long white sand beach and nearby restaurants, shopping and markets.

Both of these two luxury residences in the private, walled Casas de Los Colores compound are sited around a large pool with multi-leveled terraces and a playful fountain wall. Each house is set in a flowering landscape with mature coconut palms and the compound is surrounded by vine covered wall, which provide both security and privacy.

Vine covered garden walls visually link and physically separate the Casa Azul and Casa Roja from one another to create a style and scale the melds contemporary design with the local architectural vernacular. This architect designed arrangement and relationship of the two homes - each with its own entry off the driving court - makes them ideal to be rented either individually to two unrelated groups or together to a larger group or family.

Casa Roja offers free wireless Internet, air conditioning in every room. Ceiling fans throughout, flat screen satellite TV, a gas grill and beach toys.


Architecturally designed home. Stunning open spaces. Large, magnificent swimming pool.

Two bedrooms. One with queen size wrought iron four-poster bed and the other with two twins.

Two full baths, each with large shower, stone counters and marble flooring. Over sized closets.

Large living room and dining room that open up on to a covered terrace with a spectacular view overlooking the pool and 20 foot long fountain.

Dining open to the terrace. Ideal for sunset meals overlooking the pool and a space for for more intimate dining parties.

Kitchen with spectacular granite counter tops, Primavera wood cabinetry, all new stainless steel appliances and potable water filtration system in the kitchen.

Your privacy is important so even with five bedrooms there will never be more than 10 guest. Either way it is important to us that you feel safe, secure and comfortable.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home.

'We stayed at Casa Azul and Casa Roja for almost 2 weeks in January and had the most amazing time. From the first moment you walk through the front gates you know you've arrived somewhere unique and special. The attention to detail is fantastic and you really feel like you've fallen into an Architectural Digest photo shoot. At the same time it feels immediately comfortable and like your home away from home. Given that there were 10 of us staying at once we weren't sure how much privacy anyone would have but that never became a concern. The layout of the two houses is such that there are many places you can escape and find a quiet moment to relax and read or nap. It couldn't have been any better. We would all book Casa Azul and Casa Roja again have recommended it over and over again. I think I can speak for everyone in our group that we dream of the day we can return and escape to this wonderful home away from home in Mexico.'

Beautiful and tranquil colonial home in the heart of Bucerias

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group (8 adults and 1 child of 3 years of age) rented both houses over the Winter holiday in 2012 and had an outstanding stay. The owners attended to all of our questions in advance and had wonderful information about local activities and dining. We all enjoyed walking in Bucerias and along the beach and seeing the many sites of the colonial town. Four of us went to Punta Mita to paddleboard and whalewatch, which was very exciting... a little too exciting one time as our boat was a little too close to one of the whales when he surfaced to say hello.

The property is very safe, and thus our daughter could explore the grounds without worry and without being confined to a smaller condo. The groundskeepers, housekeepers and property managers were respectful and attentive.

Some of our favorite memories came from coordinating two local women to come into the home and prepare dinner, starting with appetizers and drinks served to us poolside, and culminating in a feast of authentic Mexican food that left us all no room to spare in our stomach. The cost of this service was approximately $10/person above the cost of the groceries to prepare the meal which the ladies will pick up; well worth the pleasure of leisurely dining in this exquisite home and being with your family.

We look forward to coming back, and highly recommend both Casa Azul and Casa Roja.
