Overview

About the property

Relax and enjoy nature: constant ocean breezes,, surf and sunsets!

Our affordable rates let you live here in front of the Pacific Ocean. Check our calendar for available dates, call your family and friends to start packing, and press the "REQUEST TO BOOK " button. It's that simple.

We are located ON the beach in a gated community that is safe and quiet.

As you enter Rancho Neptuno through an arched gateway surrounded by bougainvilleas and palm trees you open to a paradise area of miles of deserted beach, picture-like sunsets, and sea turtle nests along the beach.

Casa Chula offers the perfect blend of a peaceful and relaxing environment but with an easy drive down the carretera to centro ( 10 minutes) where there is a varied selection of restaurants, supermarkets, a bustling mercado, as well as several other beaches including Zicatela, the world class surfing destination.

We’d like to share our home with you! Enjoy the relaxation, appreciation of nature, and silence, except for the sound of the surf and the birds.

Sit and stare:

-Watch the squadrons of pelicans dive for fish.

-See the flying mantas jump out of the water and glisten in the sun.

-Observe the dolphins and whales traveling by, often within yards of the shoreline.

-Marvel at the schools of bait fish jumping and swirling in great frenzy.

-Walk the beach in the morning to discover the new tracks made by the mother turtles returning to their place of birth to lay their eggs for a new generation.

-Experience the hatching of the new baby turtles (hatching occurs throughout the year) and their race back to the sea to begin their new lives.

-Sit in the infinity pool and enjoy your drink at the “floating island” –our table IN the pool.

-Toast the end of another glorious day at our sunset seating area and watch the sun slide into the ocean.

-Walk the water’s edge, look in either direction, and enjoy the deserted, pristine beach.

-Don’t forget to turn around so you can enjoy the view of the mountains.

-Take a short drive (10minutes) into the town of Puerto Escondido

-Surf the famous world class Zicatela Beach.

The Grand Palapa is the center of the Casa and provides spacious open air living and dining areas. There are constant breezes from ocean to mountains all day long. The ocean is straight ahead and the infinity pool is even closer. You will find our beach very deserted and quiet. The only sounds are the waves and the birds! There is plenty of shade under the Grand Palapa, under the umbrellas, and under our newly constructed pergola. The infinity pool is 2 steps away from seating so little ones can be in the pool while adults are closeby. There is also a wide ledge that runs the length of the pool so children can be in shallow water and under an umbrella.

The Master bedroom has 1 king sized bed with an ensuite bathroom. The shower is bathed in natural light from the glass blocks on the outside wall and the double-sink granite vanity is spacious. Special lighting is incorporated in and around the bed for relaxation. Within the master suite is a separate sitting area with 2 six foot couches, suitable to be used as 2 single beds. The use of a ceiling fan and air conditioning is your option. The front doors fully open to the ocean. A safe is available for your use.

The second bedroom has 2 queen sized beds. An oversized ensuite bathroom has a double-sink granite vanity with giant bamboo towel racks. The bedroom’s front doors fully open to your own terrace and view of the ocean, and the back wall windows open to your view of the mountains. There is air conditioning and overhead ceiling fan for your use.

The office-media room has a flat screen TV equipped with satellite internet connection, air-conditioning and ceiling fan use. You can enjoy both ocean and mountain views from this room. This room has a full bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.

Our newly opened casita has the Garden bedroom which has a queen size bed. The main room of the casita has 2 twin beds which can be moved together to form a king bed if you wish. Both sleeping areas have overhead ceiling fans. There is a full bathroom with shower, toilet and granite vanity with sink in the casita. We open the casita when there are more then 4 persons staying here.

Working in the kitchen takes on a whole different attitude- 2 granite bars open up to ocean views. The fully equipped kitchen will be a joy to be in. Bottled water is always available.

Our staff is available during the day.. Abi is our pool and garden caretaker. He is responsible for the fabulous garden our Casa is known for. Our housekeeper Alvia is here in the daytime to tend to the housekeeping needs. There is a washer and dryer so pack light! Linen and pool towels are provided.

The air conditioners provide up to 12 hours of cooling for sleep....you choose your 12 hour period.

There are no additional fees or taxes.

Our property manager Mauricio is fluent in both English and Spanish, and offers you his concierge service which is included at no additional cost to you. He can obtain additional services to include:

on-site massages, taxi pickups, tours of the lagoon with a naturalist, deep sea fishing excursions and whale and dolphin watching, manis and pedis, babysitting, yoga, a cook, etc, all for their respective fees. Just ask Mauricio to set it up for you.

So come!! Bring your friends and family for a special time together. This is truly a place to relax, enjoy each other, and make memories.

About Lani and Chuck Paone

We have traveled extensively throughout the world, enjoying the people and their cultures, the sights, and the foods of many countries.

We came here on a vacation and when we left, we knew we wanted to return. We built our Casa shortly after.

Lani and Chuck Paone purchased this villa in 2012

Why Lani and Chuck Paone chose Puerto Escondido

The unspoiled beaches and the local flavor of Puerto Escondido pulled us in.

Being on the ocean is very special and relaxing. Every morning we are excited to take our walk because we see something new .....whales and dolphins, schools of fish, various birds, and the bonus is to see a turtle laying her eggs.or finding a new turtle nest just laid the night before.

What makes this villa unique

The locals are kind, hard-working people. We enjoy their warmth and friendliness and are fortunate to experience their way of life. The friends we have made here are priceless.

Paradise on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to rent an entire house while on vacation for privacy. Casa Chula does not disappoint. The location 50 yards from the Pacific is Amazing. From the first step onto the property you are. Mesmerized by the ocean. The house itself is clean, and modern. Spacious open air living room to relax, and a huge modem kitchen with a view of the Pacific, talk about an office with a view. We have one raking for a house like this, we call it Rock Star House. This is a Rock Star house. We can’t wait to come back 👍

5 stars! Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Chula and it was awesome. We loved the open concept gathering area where one could relax look out at the infinity pool and then the waves beyond. We could see the pelicans skimming the wave tops and dolphins swimming by! The "open plan" for the whole house and all the different "sitting" and "gathering" areas gave people so many options....For example, there's a "sunset" pergola area, a lounge chair pergola area by the pool, and yet another relaxing viewing area right out of the main bedroom. The open plan of the whole compound was really a favorite for us. The infinity pool was perfect! We were in it 4-6 times a day. The grounds of the house were immaculate-beautifully landscaped! Exotic plants and beautiful flowers everywhere....even a hummingbird feeder that brought these friendly birds to the house every day! Wow! If you are looking for a place that is away from it all, you want to relax and chill out, this is the place! Highly recommended!

a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Since the first contact we had a very warm treat.

The house is perfectly showed on the pictures, obviously it's better to breath and feel the ocean.

We ask if there was a volleyball net and they put one for us.

Ange the maid was very nice to us an was a great cooker.

We enjoyed very much being apart of everything and we had our car so we could join the crowds just when we feel like.

We went to Laguna Manialtepec to se the bioluminescence....very recommended!!!

Our kids surfed almost every day with Oasis school that Mauricio the manager of the house helped us providing the contact.

Would definitely come back!!!

Private Getaway in paradise

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home in August 2014. Although it was 25min from the main beaches and the airport it was exactly what we wanted. While in town before you head to Neptune make sure you stock up on groceries. Catching a cab or bus is right off the main highway, however to get to it from the house is about a 2mile walk. Our favorite time was spending it under the palapa, playing games and swimming in the infinity pool. The beach is at your finger tips and not a soul in sight complete privacy. THe staff was friendly and available 24hours a day as they live on the property. I recommend this house for anyone who is looking for a quiet and private stay. We will return. Thank you again Lani and Mauricio

Owner's Response: Hola Yanira, So glad you and your family enjoyed the Casa. As you experienced, what makes Casa Chula so special is its location right on the water.. You have your own private and pristine beach right in front of the Casa. It sounds like you experienced the local transportations by taking the collectivo and local buses which run on the Carretera. They will take you into the mercado, centro, beaches and other areas in Puerto Escondido as well as various restaurants. The taxis will pick up and drop off right at the Casa instead of walking out to the Carretera for the local buses. The opportunities for memory making days and evenings are all right here.. What a wonderful gift you gave them and a special first trip to Mexico for your cousin. We are happy that you, your Mom, your aunt and cousin enjoyed the stay here.

extraordinary casa right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Casa Chula was an amazing vacation! This state of the art design house is well maintained, clean, safe and private. It has e everything you'll need including breathtaking views, beautiful pool, and close drive to restaurants and markets. It's so relaxing watching the whales and dolphins swim by at this 5-star house and location. I just loved it. I highly recommend vacationing at Casa Chula for an extraordinary experience for your family.
