Incredible vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation our family had at Casa Blanca. My husband and I travelled with our five kids aged 7-21yrs old and every single one of us had an incredible time. Casa Blanca is a dream house. Best views in Lo De Marcos hands down - we saw dolphins and whales breaching out in the ocean from poolside! The house was very clean and inviting and had everything we needed. David and Polly were gracious hosts - answering all our questions, providing extra water whenever we needed, they had a folder of menus from local restaurants and they generously provided us with a ride up to La Penita to visit the local market. The house was stocked with games & books and the most awesome pool table that was VERY well used while we were there. There is also a small programmable safe to store your valuables. We brought a few of our own DVD's for the kids in the evening and the tv set up was easy to use. The pool was large enough for all of us to be in at the same time and the hot tub was delightful to soak in at the end of the day. We took great advantage of the poolside lounges - soaking up the sun, reading and drinking cervezas! The house has a delightful breeze that takes the sting out of the midday heat. You'd forget how warm it is until you headed down to the beach. The beach is a 5minute walk away - super clean and safe. There is an awesome tidal pool area at one end of the beach for the kids to poke around in and the walk to the north end of the beach is beautiful. We found a place that rented boogie, surf and paddle boards and were able to negotiate a weekly rate for while we were there. Lots of great restaurants on the beach -mellow with delicious food. There were a few vendors on the beach but very friendly and not pushy at all. We stopped at MEGA on the way to Lo De Marcos to pick up a large portion of our groceries but the town had lots of little shops to stock up on essentials while we were there. There was also a delightful market on Saturday. The walk into town only took 10 minutes and was an easy stroll. We have travelled to Mexico with all our kids before but always in a resort setting - Never again! All of our kids said they preferred staying in a small local town and experiencing "real" Mexico and all of it's beauty.

I almost didn't want to give a review as I want to keep this little piece of paradise hidden but Polly and David deserve due credit for providing such an easy way to experience paradise! We hope to return again and again

Casa Blanca is an incredible place to stay! Polly and David are amazing hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted to walk into Casa Blanca the night we arrived. We are a family of six with three teenagers and an eight year old. We were traveling with a friend so our total group size was seven. Watching how excited they were to see this amazing house, pool and hot tub was priceless. The house was very clean and inviting. We were also happy to see the house so well stocked as we were traveling with only carry on bags. Most of all, we appreciated the warm hospitality provided by Polly. She made sure that we had everything we needed and more. She gave great advice on restaurants and places to see. She helped us secure a taxi for our group of seven on Easter morning! She was readily available to us and a true pleasure to get to know. Her husband David had to be out of town so we were sorry not to have the chance to know him as well.

Highlights of our trip outside of Casa Blanca included going to Playa Los Venados beach, Tomatinos and Claridas restaurants and horseback riding with Lenny.

We will remember fondly our time in Los De Marcos...the quiet evenings and mornings around the pool taking in the breathtaking view.

Polly and David are clearly committed and gracious hosts who enjoy making Casa Blanca an awesome destination for their guests. We would love to come back again!

Perfect Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for a reunion! The space was HUGE and amazingly comfortable with enough beds, towels, privacy for everyone. The kids would wake up and jump into the pool while the adults took their time enjoying the coffee and views. Bird watching was outstanding. Sunsets were unbeatable. When you make the extra effort to travel to this quaint town in Mexico, you are staying at the Hilton here. Polly and David are very kind and accommodating. If we travel to Lo de Marcos in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Casa Blanca again!

Amazing home with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at casa Blanca. This is a dream vacation home with incredible views and plenty of room for relaxing and entertainment. The house had all the amenities any one could ask for. The beds were very comfortable and the tranquility of the environment allowed for a great night sleep. Polly the owner, was very nice and made us feel at home for the short time we were there. We didn't want to leave and will definitely return. To sum it up. All we can say is thank you and wow.
