Beautiful little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 weeks in this beautiful Casita Nov/Dec 2017. This was our second visit. Absolutely love everything about this spotlessly clean home away from home from the pretty Mexico decor, privacy, perfectly stocked kitchen, to the comfortable king size bed and the great shower! If you're thinking of booking, go ahead, you'll love it too.

Would Stay Here Again in a Heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little guest house. It had everything we needed, it's on a quiet street, and it was the perfect refuge. Lo de Marcos is still a small town (2017) and we went during the off season, so it was extra quiet. This beautiful casita is about a 15 minute walk from downtown. We rented a golf cart because that's an excellent way to get around in this town, but walking works too!

Absolutely wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book this listing! Everything you could want or need is provided. My daughter and I just spent 10 days here while our home in the area is being renovated and our stay there was perfect. The property is very clean and perfectly maintained. I've stayed in 2 other rentals in Lo de Marcos and this one is easily at the top of the list! Although we only saw Joe and Monica a few times, they were great hosts and made sure you had everything you needed. The fridge started having issues and right away they had someone out to look at it. When it still wasn't working properly, they had a new one brought in the following day! I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Lovely and peaceful. A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in this gorgeous casita. From our private little courtyard to the gorgeous and colourful decor of the casita, everything about our little home away from home was just perfect.

And Monica and Joe are warm and friendly, and happy to answer questions and provide information about the area. We can't say enough about this little gem.

It's only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach and a 7 minute stroll to the plaza, so the entire town is easy to walk around. The people are friendly and the places to grab a tasty and reasonably priced snack or meal are everywhere. We LOVED Lo de Marcos. Especially dancing in the plaza on Wednesday night. We hope to be back.

Lovely Lo de Marcos Casita O'Sullivan

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I simply loved this quiet, classy, well maintained casita. Not to sound too American, but the standards were what we are used to, and that isn't always the case when you travel. It was clean, appliances all worked, and just a nice place to chill out, read, use as a base for adventure in the area. Joe and Monica were very accommodating. Due to a family emergency we had to leave well before our 2 week stay was up, they were nice enough to credit our time to our visit this coming October. That was very nice. Aloha, Kevin and Lory

Exceptional Host - Outstanding Value - Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in Casita O'Sullivan for a few weeks while my house was under construction in town.

Located on the Southside(Universidad), the property is easily accessible from the main highway, town plaza, or the road along the beach(Camino A las Minitas). Parking is available in front of the property along the front wall.

Access to the beach is great - straight down the wide street - maybe 4-5 minutes till your feet hit the sand. Convenience is a big deal to me, and having the beach so close was a huge plus. Floating on the water while the sun is setting is something everyone should experience.

Casita O'Sullivan is an impressive property. It will immediately put a smile on your face.

The property is secure with it's own entry gate at the front of the property. The landscaping is amazing with a variety of palms, bushes, and a bit of grass. The patio has two separate seating areas giving you the option of being in the sun or not. I spent most of my time in the shade under the outdoor fan. It also has a lounge chair/s for taking that afternoon siesta. The patio has a small BBQ, which I used 4-5 times, which was really nice. The potted flowering plants and small water feature will draw you to this area for hours of relaxation. I loved it. Lastly, there is an electrical outlet outside which was handy for plugging in my laptop and MP3 player.

The inside of the casita is incredible. Clean, clean, clean! The housekeeper is great! The construction is first class and has all the modern amenities you would ever need for your stay. I very much enjoyed and appreciated the amount of effort and thought put into the decor - just a wonderful job. The inside seating area is plentiful, with the option of sitting on a stool at the kitchen bar. Every appliance or tool you need to whip-up a gourmet meal is available. The refrigerator and separate freezer are large. Plenty of dry good storage in a sliding door pantry.

The bedroom has a large king sized bed that is very comfortable! All the sheets and pillow cases were soft and of high quality. The bathroom is large with a big step-in shower. Great!

Saving the best for last...Monica and Joe are wonderful people. They are responsive and timely with both emails and phone calls. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for your stay is nothing short of amazing. They always took the time to answer my numerous questions.

Casita O'Sullivan is simply a first class property that I would highly recommend!
