The casita is a new part of the Chacala Beach House compound. It is a convenient and nicely appointed apartment . It works great for long term and weekly guests. Claudia and Roberto live on the premises and are a great help and service to guests. At times there are opportunities to serve. Guests have volunteered their professional skills to the village and helped with labor projects. A recent family brought soccer uniforms and equipment for the children in Chacala and another local village. Every December the owners host a Posada celebration at the compound where the children come for a meal and receive a gift. It is greatly appreciated when guests bring soft toys to donate for the Posada. Las Varas is 8 miles north of Chacala. The town has a bank, grocery stores and services. The "Collectivo" van runs frequently from Chacala to Las Varas. Claudia and Roberto will help you if you want to go to Las Varas. Restaurant, Angelitas, 2 blocks north of the bank, is worth the visit

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we landed to the time we left paradise, everything was perfect. The owner was incredible to deal with. Claudia and Roberto on the property made sure we had everything. Even the other family in the appartment below us was awesome. Great spot for families with kids.

A Week at the Casita

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a beautiful week at the Beach House in Chacala. We stayed in the Casita on the upper level. It was full of light, spacious, nicely furnished, well equipped and very private. We loved having coffee on the paloppa while enjoying the ocean and beach views. It was wonderful to walk out the door right onto the beautiful beach of Chacala. We were just steps away from the restaurants and shops. The on-site staff were friendly and very helpful. The owners were very responsive when making rental arrangements. We would definitely love to return to the beach house.

Honeymoon In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Casita, is magnificent! Claudia who is on property was so helpful. The place is beautiful, the ocean is literally outside the door. There are many activities to do in Chacala or if you just want to relax this is the perfect place. I will definitely be returning in the future. This was by far the best get-away I have ever had. My wife and I enjoyed kayaking in the ocean and swimming in the crystal clear water. Absolutely Amazing!
