Upon entering the property through wrought iron gates, it’s immediately noticeable that you’ll be spending all your time outdoors.

Opening up on a beautiful courtyard that’s lined with local trees and greenery, test out your private pool for a quick dip to cool off, or take a seat on one of the lounge chairs to start on your tan. While everyone cools off in the water, cook up some burgers and hot dogs on the outdoor BBQ grill and let the family enjoy their meal at the swim up bar. If you’re looking to escape the sun while you enjoy your meal, head over to the sheltered hut next to the pool to enjoy your meal at a table. At night, head upstairs to the second floor palapa hut where you can enjoy some drinks at the granite bar and relax to the sounds of the oceans on the 6 person L-shaped couch. If you fancy a swim in the ocean, Playa Iguana is less than 40 yards away!


With a modern design and a local touch, the entire villa is extremely cozy and comfortable. Fully air conditioned, every room is tastefully adorned with wood and steel for a upscale rustic feel. Shaped in a square around a courtyard in the middle and filled with windows, the villa really does encourage its guests to spend the majority of their time outside, but provides endless luxuries when you decide to stay indoors.

Decorated with high quality furnishings including seating for 8 on the couch in the living room and more seating in the adjacent coffee table room, the main floor of the villa is the place to go to escape the sun for a bit and indulge in relaxation. Sit down on the large L-shaped couch and catch up on your favorite TV shows, or enjoy a nice bottle of wine at the 10 person dining table.

Adorned with granite and steel, the kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances and everything you need to enjoy a home cooked meal. Upon request, you can also have a private chef do the cooking for you - extra fees may apply.

All 4 bedrooms are very spacious and provide endless comfort for the full luxury experience. All bathrooms come fully loaded, have large shower areas, and come with towels & hand soap


The master bedroom, located on the top floor of the villa, offers unequaled comfort and accommodations. Very large and marked by a king bed, the master suite comes with a private seating area that overlooks the pool, and a balcony that provides a view of the Pacific ocean. With a large en-suite bathroom, this truly is the Master suite!


The second bedroom on the ground floor of the villa offers its inhabitants a great night’s sleep and prime location. Elegantly decorated and marked by a queen size bed, the second bedroom provides direct access to the pool area through patio doors and private en-suite bathroom.

BEDROOM 3 + 4:

The third and fourth bedrooms are located on the ground floor of the villa and come equipped with 2 single beds in one room and a queen/single bunk bed in the other. Although there is no en-suite bathroom for these rooms, a large bathroom is located right outside the bedroom doors!

*All bedrooms feature luxury bedding for a perfect night’s rest.

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

Can't imagine a better setup than Casa Calala; clean, spacious, private, and only about 100 yards from the lineup at Colorado's. Peter coordinated multiple airport pickups, meals, ding repairs and boats for us seamlessly. He was always available, flexible, and honest. Couldn't have asked for a better house or a better host. Thank you!
