Truly the signature house on the hill overlooking the town of Lo De Marcos.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic house with the best views in town. This old beauty is under new management and rapidly being restored to its proper place as the best rental in town. Dave and Polly are really great hosts who live on the large property. They are available to help out with whatever you need or out of site if you need nothing at all. Lo De Marcos is one of the last unspoiled villages on this part of the coast. Go now! before the secret gets out...

Beyond 5 Stars! Casa Blanca really impressed us.

  • 5 of 5

What convinced me to book this Lo de Marcos gem? Many years of almost perfect 5 star reviews. My family was blown away when we saw this beautiful home nestled atop an isolated hill. How anyone wouldn't give Casa Blanca a 5 star review is beyond us. The views are absolutely stunning. The best in town by far. Complete privacy. Probably the most exclusive location in town. The owner’s instructions about car rentals, getting to Lo de Marcos, listing the things to do in the area are excellent. I also learned that in January 2017 one of the owners, an on-site manager, unexpectedly passed away. Casa Blanca now is under new management.

I’m truly perplexed at a couple reviewers’ way-over-the-top comments about the kitchen, microwave and showers. The place is immaculately cleaned. The modern microwave works perfectly. The non-stick cookware is in great shape. Tableware is also fine. The gas stove worked superbly. No problems in the kitchen whatsoever. No problems with hot water or hot water heater. Bathrooms, showers and shower curtains were lovely with no old, corroded, rusty shower hooks and curtain bar as someone falsely claimed.

Water pressure is not an issue, but people have to remember you are not in a big city and everyone in town uses a well or town water. This is Mexico, and just like the water pressure (not a problem), the owner of Casa Blanca doesn't control the electrical grid in Lo de Marcos or surrounding area. If the power goes out at Casa Blanca it is out for everyone and that knocks out the internet. (No problems with internet service either.) Once again, remember, you are on the Mexican Riviera (Jungle), with the amenities of the modern world.

The pool & hot tub are great. With plenty of sun by the pool, the deck wraps around the house with always a sunny spot to lay in. I mean, come on, the pool faces north-west, the sun sets in the west. We had all the sun we could handle. Pool temperature was very comfortable and the hot tub was hot.

Fresh seafood cleaned & delivered to you by friendly, helpful locals was fantastic. Cook it yourself or hire a chef. It doesn't get any better than that anywhere you go in the world. Even at the Hilton! We arranged to have great massages at Casa Blanca. A great surprise is the spectacular on-site bird watching. The property sits high above the town with a wraparound view of the surrounding jungle & ocean. All kinds of birds fly by and find a tree.

A 5 star rating falls short. We will definitely be back!!!

I LOVED the property

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the house the view and the pool table. The gorgeous views and relaxing atmosphere coupled with convenient drive to other towns made the stay just perfect. A local spa visited the house for massages and facials by the pool. Just a wonderful vacation in a sweet authentic little town

A property with the most stunningly beautiful view and an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

For the third year in a row, our group of 2 families of 4 each has been fortunate enough to spend our holiday at Casa Blanca. This property is so comfortable, with a constant breeze, a very nice pool, hot tub, pool table and incredible views, that you rarely even need to leave the property. If you need anything, the wonderful host Mary, who lives in a casita close by, is happy to help and is a wealth of local information. A short walk takes you to a beautiful beach for swimming and dining, and a slightly longer walk takes you into a small town where you can buy fresh groceries or sit for a delicious meal of tacos and cerveza. We LOVE vacationing here and highly recommend this rental.

Our second visit - still gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in 6 years at this beautiful house and it is still great. Very well maintained. Very tranquil and serene. The house is huge with 2 wings basically and has a pool table and bar. Plus a really nice pool and deck area. Driveway quite steep - having access to a car is probably best as it is a bit of a walk as well to town. Thank you to Mary who looked after everything for us while there and was very flexible and easy to deal with. Wi fi needs attention though.

Nice view but aged and dated

  • 3 of 5

Colin C's review sums it up very well. IMO pros: view, large house, nice layout, great beds. Cons: sun on the pool only 1/2 hour per day; cannot lay in the sun by the pool, pool not heated (ocean is warmer), total house needs updating, thorough cleaning & TLC. Hot water didn't work most of the time. I don't mind paying higher prices but if I'm charged Hilton prices I expect Hilton amenities. Far better value to be gotten in nearby rental homes.
