Overview

About the property

8,000 Square Ft, 5 Bedrooms w/en-suite Bathrooms, 2 - 1/2 Baths + Media.

Casa SolOro, is inside the private gated community of Marina Chacala and has an ocean front position a 100 yards from the sandy beach you see in the photo. A ninety minute car ride north of Puerto Vallarta’s newly expanded international airport, this beautiful, safe and securely guarded gated community is away from the throng of tourists and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the lush bird-filled jungle that is the backdrop to the fine white sandy beach and tranquil turquoise waters of chacalilla bay. Casa SolOro is a place where you come together to relax, read, swim, mix margaritas, enjoy meals and one another's company with family and friends. Life centers around the large palapa, a palm covered open space which features a wet bar, dining and living area. Children can play on the lawn, swim in the turquoise infinite pool or enjoy an evening watching a movie on the 64' HDTV in the comfortable media room. After lunch, take a siesta or enjoy a massage and doze off to the sounds of the sea in the shaded garden area. Relax, read a book or simply gaze out over the beautiful vistas of the bay. A few steps below you'll discover a small private sandy beach closer to the waves and the sea.

The gourmet kitchen, under a classic Mexican brick dome ceiling, is fully equipped for your *cook to make sumptuous meals that will be served either in the dining room or in the outdoor palapa.

Three of the bedrooms have indoor/outdoor showers that feature wonderful examples of Mexican artisan pebble work.

Everything you need is close at hand: professional massages, tennis courts, a small Mexican fishing village with beach lined restaurants just a 10 minute walk from the entrance of Marina Chacala.

Local fishing trips can be arranged and your freshly caught fish will be cleaned and prepared and placed directly onto the barbecue.

About Christine Foley

Constructed and completed in 2013, my husband and I have been coming to Chacalilla (little Chacala) for the last 8 years since we fell in love with the place and bought land. Our dream of a beautiful outdoor-living style Mexican home has finally come true and we are delighted with the outcome! We know you will enjoy the beauty of this perfect bay and will want to return year after year as we did.

Christine Foley purchased this house in 2013

Why Christine Foley chose Chacala

In 2005 we spent a year exploring up and down the coast of Nayarit looking for a place in the sun. By pure chance we finally found this spot. When we saw it we could not believe how undiscovered it was and how lucky we were to find this gorgeous unspoiled paradise. Away from the mainstream tourist areas, it is the smallest, brightest and most spectacular jewel in the crown of the Riviera Nayarit!

What makes this house unique

We love the house which was designed and built by Mexican architects and incorporates all the elements we love about Mexican coastal living: outdoor life style centered around the palapa, artisanal detail pebble work on the floors, polished concrete, traditional brick dome ceiling, large high windows and cellings with exposed wood beams, balconies overlooking the ocean, volcanic rock walls built from the property's land, everything is a harmonious combination of elements right down to the salt water infinity pool.

Thanks to Javier, this place seemed like a 5-star resort

  • 5 of 5

With a chef and maid on site, as well as Javier available by phone to help with just about anything we needed, it was a great experience. From boats picking us up in front of the house to search for surf spots, to vans picking us up to explorer the surrounding area, we loved this little oasis. Plus, the home is found inside a really nice community with its own beach club and private beach, with Kayaks and Umbrella to use.

Things to note -

- The floors are really slick cement, so any older or unsteady guests should wear shoes at all times, or have assistance.

- We went in July and there was a lot of mosquitos. I'd bring a bug zapper, candles, spray, whatever.

- There is no beach out front of the home, but instead, a little walkway that leads out into the water, to swim out to a boat.

- Bring water shoes

- All the rooms have AMAZING AC

- The wifi is fast enough to stream Netflix and other services. The upload speed however is not the fastest, but decent.

- We have Verizon cell service and it was fine at the house.

- The home has the equivalent of 3 master bedrooms with bathrooms and two smaller rooms with two twin beds.

- The chef and maid service every day was a huge plus

- The pool is as magical as it looks in the pictures, we loved it!

- The beach is a 5-10 min walk on the street in front of the house. Its a nice peaceful walk, private community. You can also rent a golf cart for $50/day if you want.

- They did our shopping for us every day, it was awesome!

SIMPLY AMAZING - PARADISE ON EARTH *****

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a break in paradise, do not look further! Casa SolOro offers everything you need to have your dream vacation come true.

The villa is stunning (all the rooms have been beautifully decorated by the owner Christine, the palapa is the cosiest place on earth and the infinity pool is simply to die for).

Mari - the on-site cook - is a wonderful chef (she prepared us home made meals on a daily basis and what meals! each one of them more delicious than the other!). On top, Mari is an incredible massage therapist (what a treat to have a massage while listening to the waves).

Thanks to Christine, Mari and Javier (who took care of the logistical details), our stay in Casa SolOro was simply the best. I hope to return there very soon!!!!

Paradise Perfection

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the best vacation rental outside of Puerto Vallarta you have found it! This home is perfect! Every detail of this property has been thought out by the wonderful owner Christine. All rooms are fantastic and our group of 6 couples had a hard time deciding which room to choose. The views are breathtaking and the palapa was the center point in all our festivities. I can not say enough great things about Mari, Ana and Javier. They made our stay easy and amazing from day one. You will not get better food anywhere! Stay in and have Mari and Ana cook for you and you will not be disappointed. They were even fantastic with all of our kiddos. We nicknamed Mari the baby whisperer:) Javier made sure that we had everything we desired, from red wine and bug spray to perfect surfing spots. Our group travels all over the world and Mexico has been our favorite. With that said, not a single other VRBO has compared to this property, the staff and the owner. Mari made us fresh squeezed orange juice everyday , fresh margaritas, the best meals and desserts. Ana took care of groceries, meal planning, laundry and keeping our rooms clean and tidy. Mari also gives massages right on the property with the waves crashing behind you. Don’t waste your time with looking at other properties. This is the best! Thank you Christine for sharing your exquisite home and employing three of the very best there is! This is it... paradise found. We will be returning and will be making this house our second home.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week at fabulous Casa SolOro!

What's not to love? The property itself is so special, and I can truly see how much thought Christine put into every last detail of the house and grounds, to make sure the visitor experience is nothing but the best. It left us wanting for nothing. Everything is anticipated and provided --and since we are quite particular, that says a lot.

We loved waking up to the calming ocean sounds, singing birds, abundant wildlife, and whale shows that were second to none. Like they were performing everyday just for us, lol. Glad we brought the binoculars as recommended.

I also want to express the important role the amazing staff played in making our stay so unforgettable. Javier was a huge help-- very professional, kind, accommodating and easy to work with every step of the way. And Mari and Ana. Well, they are just the best! They put their hearts and souls into getting us our meals, all of which were delicious, freshly prepared, and beautifully served, every day. In fact, we so loved their meals we did not even eat out! They always shared smiles, an easy, can-do attitude and we grew to cherish them more every day. They are such an asset to the overall experience, I think several people actually cried when it was time to say goodbye.

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation, and we hope to make this visit an annual one! I cannot express our gratitude and appreciation to you for making this all possible, Christine. And I know that our thoughts also reflect that of everyone in our group as well.

STUNNING!

  • 5 of 5

Simply the best vacation possible. If this experience is in your price range, do not hesitate. Owner was easy to deal with. Javier, the coordinator, is more helpful than anyone I've met. He can get just about anything you could possibly want. The meals are amazingly prepared and delicious. the food can be authentically Mexican or standard tourist and the options are endless. I highly recommend letting Mari put your menu together. Just tell her what you don't like and you'll happy. Her meals were better than any we had in restaurants. The staff is there if you need anything but out of the way if you don't.

Just don't try and book the dates that I will be returning!

Amazing property & staff - Perfect girlfriends getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Soloro was perfect for our girlfriends getaway for my birthday! The home was just stunning and fit us perfectly! We were 9 women and all had great bedrooms, there's a view from pretty much every room! The lay out of the house is fabulous to give you a bit of privacy when you go off to your room at night but perfect for hanging out for meals & in the pool over looking the ocean. The Palapa is just insanely gorgeous and the sunsets were beautiful beyond words.

We have stayed at 2 homes in Punta Mita over the past 4 years and this home in Marina Chacala was equally stunning and the service was fantastic. Mari & her daughter Anna totally got us. They understood what we wanted as they had an incredible breakast, lunch & dinner spread for us daily. We've never eaten so well! We did pay the extra to have them stay for dinner each night which was well worth it for us! We had an awesome bartender Chaba every day & the drinks were delicous, the best mango margaritas especially!

We played tennis daily and the courts were great & easy to walk to. For those who didn't want to play tennis they took long, beautiful walks. We also paddle boarded in the bay in town. We walked to town and had an insanely good lobster & fish lunch too, one of the best meals I've ever had! Mari is also an excellent masseuse & another gal came each day as well, so 2-4 of us had massages each day which was pure heaven.

Our concierge Javier as well as the owner Christine, went above & beyond to make sure our stay was fantastic. I would not hestitate to recommend this vacation oasis to friends & family and I plan to go back. Even the driver, Alberto, who picked us up at the airport was great!!

If you want a relaxing, beach location in totaly luxury, this is your spot!

Puerto Vallarto

Marina Chacala, (aka Chacallia) is located at the north end of Chacala Bay, which is only a ninety minute car ride North of Puerto Vallarta’s newly expanded international airport. This is a beautiful, gated community on a secluded white sandy beach beside a shimmering ocean edged by a natural coconut grove and acres of lush tropical jungle.

Marina Chacala is recognized as one of the finest, cleanest, safe and private beachfront communities on the Riviera Nayarit. It is emerging as a destination for discriminating vacation travelers who are looking for an unspoiled beach environment. The gated community offers excellent security and high end amenities: tennis courts, swimming pool, lap pool, separate children’s pool and two large thatched roof beach palapas for dining, reading and relaxing in the shade.

Within this exceptional community is “Casa SolOro.” (House of Golden Sun) This is a luxury villa that will indulge you with magnificent ocean views, breathtaking skies and romantic sunsets.
