Two story custom built home. Oceanview Palapa with bar for beautiful sunsets overlooking the Pacific Ocean. 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathrooms and nice living room and fully equipped kitchen.

About Margarita Valenzuela

Born and raised in Fort Bragg, California. Love the beach but very cold here so I like to vacation in nice warm weather close to beach. My husband, my children and I wish we could be here more often to soak up some sun.

Margarita Valenzuela purchased this house in 2009

Why Margarita Valenzuela chose Melaque

Vacationed in Melaque and fell in love with this cute little relaxing town. Love that you don't need a car. Everything is within a couple blocks of walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Love the relaxing under the palapa with a nice cold drink. Beautiful sunsets too!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home for a month this year and found it perfect for us. The pictures do not do the home justice for sure. The layout is actually quite functional. 2 of the bedrooms have the windows leading to the halls for good airflow and can be closed for quiet at night. Beds were very comfortable and we had great sleeps. Master bdrm has a very large bed with nova foam type topper. Other 2 bedrooms have beds that are closer to a double size but very good mattresses suitable for one person or 2 small (or snuggly) people. The rooftop palapa is a fantastic aprox 950 sq ft of space that we thoroughly enjoyed with all kinds of different views. New tv is equiped with internet connection for netflix ex for the very few days when you are not to busy with the many options nearby. When we return to Melaque this home will be our first choice for sure. Thank you for having us Margarita :)

Small family reunion of 3

  • 4 of 5

We were excited to be back in Melaque/San Patricio and this was a wonderful home and location. The accommodations were great. We had everything we needed and bicycle rental next door. The owners and caretakers were delightful to work with. Ocean view from the roof/palapa. We found the bands at establishments on the opposite sides of the house sometimes played in sync; the night noise being the only drawback.

Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We are the first to review and stay in this beautiful home. We so enjoyed our trip to Melaque and our stay at this house. The pictures do not do the house justice, it is nicer that the pictures show. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen worked well. We parked our car in the lower level. The part we enjoyed the most is the beautiful palapa on the roof! We enjoyed the sunrise and set over the ocean. We loved relaxing up there and eating some meals there. The restraunts in front and back play music and it was fun hearing them. We have three children all over 12 and they loved the home! Us being the first renters there were a couple of thing that came up but they were taken care of. Also we had to get used to not having a shower curtain, but it was fine. The location of the home was perfect. Short walk to market, restraunts, beach right there, great happy hour at the beach restraunt in front of the home. We stayed for a month and would stay here again!
