Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 plus 1 toddler stayed here from Christmas to New Years, and it was the best holiday! This is a beautiful house. It is very well laid out, spotless, and contains everything you might need. We could have spent all of our time just around the pool. When the sliding glass doors open up the whole front of the house, an amazing indoor-outdoor living experience is created. It is in a great location if you appreciate being off the beaten tourist path which we did. Great surfing close by and lots of fun places to explore. Several great restaurants within walking distance and lots of choices in San Blas. Alex went above and beyond as a host as did Daniel, the house manager. Our many thanks! Lisa and family

A lovely Beachfront Home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, quiet spot in a relatively undeveloped part of Mexico. The house is quite new and well maintained with a great private pool. The sandy beach in front varied in size (from 0 to 40 feet) depending on the tide and is bordered by a stone retaining wall. We enjoyed it very much. Several good local authentic Mexican restaurants. San Blas is about 20 minutes north and a good spot for shopping, more upscale dining as well as a surf rental and instruction spot. Local hikes and visits to other adjacent beaches is also recommended. This area is not frequented by many tourists (at least not yet) which was appealing for us. Our maintenance guy named Daniel was very helpful and committed to his job. His English was excellent which helped us considerably, given that our family (all Canadians) spoke virtually no Spanish. A few mosquitoes about some evenings so bring repellant just in case. The internet worked very well.

Perfect house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We started looking at the San Blas area after the hurricane hit Cabo this fall and we were forced to change our Thanksgiving plans. Having been to Puerto Vallarta many times but not much further north than Salulita we were intrigued by the "Riviera of Nayarit".

The directions given by the owners were very thorough and included Google earth photos of key turns. I speak Spanish and this was helpful in confirming we were on the right path during the 2.5 hr drive from the air port as the villages you travel through to arrive at this little paradise are not touristy.

The caretaker met us at the house and was very friendly and welcoming. The first thing our 14-year-old said when we opened the gate was "this is paradise!"

The house is very clean and open with three bedrooms and five beds,one could sleep many people there. Our family of five including a infant was more than comfortable. We arranged for the caretakers wife to cook us a few meals at the house since going out with the infant is difficult. These ended up being our best meals and wished we had done that almost every night. The cost was comparable to going out to eat.

We ventured to San Blas often to rent surfboards and surf on the beach there. There were a couple bodyboards at the house for our teenagers to use on the waves in front of the house.

The beach in front of the house is tide dependent so it is not there all of the time. This was not a dealbreaker for us but we did need to be mindful when taking walks on the beach with the kids. Also, The beach itself was not very sandy or great for lounging on. Better to just walk down the steps from the house and go swimming in the super warm ocean. If the waves were hitting the sea wall one could just stay in the pool or make a short drive 15 min to another beach.

The Internet worked well and we made a few land line calls to the U.S.

My only slight complaint was that our deposit was slow in getting back to us.

Over all this was a beautiful house on the beach in a quiet Mexican town. Plenty of outdoor activities to do and locals to interact with. Great value for the cost. I would recommend this for any one looking for a quiet authentic Mexican vacation.

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our first big trip with our 4 and 6 year old children outside of the country. Having never been to San Blas, I was slightly apprehensive on our way there. By the following morning I was loving everything about it and planning our return trip. The house is perfect. It's on a quiet beach opening up to a perfect pool and it stayed cool inside. It's a quintessential house for a tropical beach. It is very clean and airy on the inside with tile floors and built in furniture throughout. The concrete fence and gate surrounding the large property made it very safe and private, but once we became more familiar with the Aticama it didn't even seem necessary. The ocean just outside the property was sandy and a nice place to swim or boogy board. Just a short walk down the beach was a cute outdoor restaurant with excellent food were we ate nearly every other day. The house is just a 15 minute drive from San Blas where you can find many more restaurants and things to do. While we were there our family took a surf lesson, went on a river tour and did a little shopping. Probably the best part was everything San Blas didn't have. It was not touristy. There were no large resorts or big chain stores. No crowds, no lines and no overpriced activities. We can't wait to visit again.

The beach is sandy all winter long, but mid-summer to October/November will be dependent on the tides. Summer 2015 has had exceptionally high tides, so some weeks there has been no beach
